age of empires, others
 
Hi, does anyone know how i can get age of empires to work (i know its the enemy's microsoft's game but, its the best game)) on my rh8 system? I have wine and i try to install but i get a list of .dlls and then it stops , are there better emulators then wine??? if so what are they and where can i dload them from?

Winex

Might work, it is better able to handle DirectX games.

I have read several articles in the past that led me to believe that M$ specifically tests their games against Wine and WineX to ensure that they will not operate on Linux. I don't know how true this is, but you might be out of luck.

Suggest Emulator
 
Hi man how you doing!! I suggest that you can download VMWARE emulator in my opinion is the best, you can download the trial version. And of course to play need a respective "Patch".

www.vmware.com

You SHOULDN'T suggest warez site links on this site, furthermore you shouldn't suggest even USING warez, much more where to get them...

VMware won't play games anyway, so not only is this idiot suggesting something illegal, he's also suggesting something that wouldn't work.

slightcrazed - I'd be interested to see one of these articles. Do you have a link?

I'll have to do some searching for them.. They were posted on one of the other forums that I frequent a while back, maybe 6 or 8 months ago. I think it might have been on Linuxgames, but I'm not sure. The article was pretty good, it was very specific on DirectX calls that were incorporated into a M$ game even thought the game didn't use them. There was no hard evidence but the author was suggesting that M$ knew that WineX couldn't handle certain calls so they would include them in their game so that WineX wouldn't run them.

If I find the link I'll post it. :)
