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 :
[murph@localhost Half-life]$ [murph@localhost Half-life]$ wine hl.exe -- hl.exe -console -game cstrike -w 1024 -h 768 -windowed -noipx -toconsole +connect insertSERVERip
bash: [murph@localhost: command not found
[murph@localhost Half-life]$ fixme:keyboard:X11DRV_KEYBOARD_DetectLayout Your keyboard layout was not found!
bash: fixme:keyboard:X11DRV_KEYBOARD_DetectLayout: command not found

[murph@localhost Half-life]$ Please define your layout in dlls/x11drv/keyboard.c and submit them

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..
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 126.96.36.199" where 188.8.131.52 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 ĻserveripĻ in exits back to the main menu and freezes but wine doesnīt 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
thatīs the ouput I get when menu is frozen but wine is still running.
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 Iīve read itīs a problem with VAC updates server side so I guess I will have to wait for an update of wine.
