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.

Exclamation 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".

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.
