Unhappy Help Me Out of this Hell Please!!!!!!!!!!!


I Installed Crysis on Gutsy Gibbon using Wine (ver1.0)

It installed almost successfully, only with a minor error that said

3 Gigs of RAM (800MHZ, DDR2)
Nvidia 8600GT 512 MB DDR2 PCI-e

Wine enables you to run some Windows applications in Linux without having to have Windows installed. You need not have a Windows license to run Windows applications with Wine.

You are required to have a copy of Windows and a valid Windows license to install Windows on a Virtual Machine under Linux.

The purpose of wine is to run the game on your native installation without the need for a virtual machine. We could also say that "we don't understand the purpose of virtualbox, use wine instead". Besides that, there's no way to get 3d acceleration in virtualbox. That and the added overhead makes it useless for gaming purposes. Not to mention that you need to pay (don't you? mmmmm) a windows license.


To the OP: search on the wine app database here:

http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...ation&iId=5880

On a first look, it seems that the support is not so good for crysis yet, but search yourself, there are more results matching crysis, and some of the user comments might be of help to get it working.

As far as virtual box is concerned, does it support the graphic card? Because what I generally got to see in Desktop virtualization softwares is that they have their own internal arrangements for graphics memory, generally not exceeding 32MB whereas this game requires nearly about 128MB Graphic memory to run smoothly. Anyways, I am considering an upgrade for My Distro and will update it to Hardy Heron, probably tonight. I have seen this game running in that version using Wine.

VM's usually only support 2d acceleration cards, something in the lines of the old cirrus logic chips or the like (qemu comes shipped with a CL rom, and I guess Virtualbox is probably the same). The only one that I know of that has some -experimental- 3d support is wmware (I don't know from which version). But as far as I know, it's experimental and not-usable. I don't follow it closely so it might have changed in the latest times. But I wouldn't hold my breath for it.

The quantity of ram is irrelevant, since the card will be lacking even the most basic requirements in which regards 3d and opengl capabilities.

You are right!! I saw the game's review in the link you provided. They gave a "Garbage" for installation and running of Crysis in Gutsy whereas they gave it a bronze for Hardy Heron. I think upgrade is the best possible solution available here for me.

I would open another thread for that. I know nothing about compiz and can't help you with that.

Just one more thing: you were not trying to run crysis with compiz (the cube thing) enabled, were you? In that case try to disable it before running any 3d intensive stuff. It's known to cause lots of problems with wine and similar things.
