Wine + Counter Strike


I have just installed wine and have half life running ok including online but when I try to go online with counter strike I get the followling error message:

err:x11drv:X11DRV_ChangeDisplaySettingsExW No matching mode found

I am running a nvidia geforce 4 + lastest drivers with KDE 3.1 on Mandrake 9.1

Anyone suggestions on how to get cs running would be very much appreciated.

Thx

disregard arex's post, because counter-strike runs flawlessly on the regular version of wine.
try passing some arguments to your command line when executing...for instance this is my command i use...
wine hl.exe -- hl.exe -console -game cstrike -w 1280 -windowed -noipx -toconsole +connect insertSERVERip
the only thing you would have to change is the -w parameter which i use 1280 so my cs loads up at 1280x960...you can also pass the -h to specify a height if you like...
so for example say you wanna load cs at 1024x768 your command could be :

wine hl.exe -- hl.exe -console -game cstrike -w 1024 -h 768 -windowed -noipx -toconsole +connect insertSERVERip

hi again

if your game supports GL then I cannot say that it will or will not run. (never tried it.). But direct x stuff .. is why they made the other version's of wine. So Direct x is suported.
but if it works.. (than that is great.. and let's hope more GL games come out.

As I play army operations myself. a linux based GL game..
and it is free..

perhaps you should have a look at it.

cheers

try issusing the command without the +connect serverIP and see if it brings you dircetly to the console and if it does just type in the console without quotes "connect 1.2.3.4" where 1.2.3.4 is the ip address you want to connect to.

Right I can get Counter strike to load with the console using:
wine hl.exe -- hl.exe -console -game cstrike -toconsole

But as soon as I type connect ¨serverip¨ in exits back to the main menu and freezes but wine doesn´t seem to crash.

fixme:dc:LockWindowUpdate (0x10024), partial stub!
fixme:dc:LockWindowUpdate ((nil)), partial stub!
fixme:winmm:MMDRV_Exit Closing while ll-driver open
fixme:winmm:MMDRV_Exit Closing while ll-driver open

that´s the ouput I get when menu is frozen but wine is still running.

Cheers for trying to help me to this point DrOzz

If I connect to a counter strike server using the command without -game -cstrike then it atempts to connect and stops with an error saying to can write to the file config.cfg. The file is located in Half-life/Valve/ which is strange since halflife works fine online.

I can now play cs on a LAN game but still crashes when connecting to a server online but from what I´ve read it´s a problem with VAC updates server side so I guess I will have to wait for an update of wine.
