It's much better to try WineX 3.3 (the new version ioe.)
Take a look at www.trasngaming .com
It's well worth the subscription price..

I'm sure that i read something about Tribes there.


Good luck.

thx for the replys you guys i tried winex 3.2 before i did the latest standard wine and it just installed it and gave me a bunch of errrors not from the code it self but from the game it self saying the directx wznt present. Bizarre but i got it to run full minus this problem with this one game. i tested it on others halflife and no window problem like t1 i'm starting to thinks its a hardware to software confilt with the code in normal wine.

but i'll shell out some money next check and reactivate my account with winex and try 3.3 for a change.

sincerely,
Gammak7
a noob hitting the books Oh MY

h yeah.. *smiles* Sorry about that spellign mistake. My GF was waiting for me and i was in a hurry...



I think all 3.x version of WineX had problems with CS.
At least them on my pc had that Or was that me?
I've not tried it with 3.3 yet, but since we're going to erase win2K from the pc in the livingrom and turn it into a linux box..... then i guess cs and a few other games will end up there too..
Just to nag visitors that we got a working X-box, PS2 and a LINUX machine that plays the music and games we want

I'll say that the subscription isn't that bad as it's sound. *smiles* I spend more money one evening when i go out drinking here in Norway than that costs me. So both me and my liver are quite happy with that

why not just get the CVS version then ?
open a terminal and do the following :
Quote:
1. cvs -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot login
2. When prompted for the password enter "cvs"
3. cvs -z3 -d:pserver:cvs@cvs.transgaming.org:/cvsroot co winex

well i am not sure if your actually trying to tell me you don't have cvs installed or not, and if that is the case and you don't have it installed, then the mandrake9.2 rpm can be found at the below link ..
