WineX 3.3.... Steam on linux :)


WineX 3.3 is out, and steam works much better

the gameplay is very smooth in cs... getting about 80fps (i get 100 with windows, but this is a big improvment)

The game does crash randomly ... but i think with a little playing with it it could work better than any cs ive played under linux so far

How exactly does one install steam using Winex3 ???

I dont know how to go about installing it. I was looking up linux-gamers.net (i think that was the site) and there was a lot of configuring or something for Wine. But everyone says that you can play Steam on Winex3 w/o problems. I have winex3 but it doesnt install correctly. It gives me some error about a steam.dll or something??

It doesnt work with winx 3.2.1. you need 3.3 (the latest version)

If you have a transgaming account, you can download Point2Play from thier site, and use that to manage and install your games. Its easier than using a Microsoft product
