winex + cs


gday, ive been trying to get counterstrike running in linux with winex but the map textures are just large coloured rectangles (see http://www20.brinkster.com/wa5te/cs.jpg) when i try to run it in opengl..

the map textures work with software rendering.. but its too painfully slow to even try running cs with software..

thanks for any help in advance
-Bryan.

two questions:
do you have your video drivers intstalled?
and if question one is true, then trying setting gl_ztrick "0" in your cstrike config.cfg file...that value is usually 1 by default..

oh and your links dont' work

well i guess i should have mentioned that, that fix doesn't help absolutely everyone....its a fix that sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, as developers are still trying to figure out one final solution, that could help all end users...so with that said, the only other thing i can think of is uninstalling the nvidia drivers, and re-install them like so ::
sh NVIDIA-x-x-x-.run --opengl-headers and then i recommend recompiling your version of wine, but you can always still try it without recompiling....i am not guarunteeing this to work, its just as reliable as the other fix, it may or may not help...

thats actually exactly what i said with a lot more typing...it says that he recompiled wine which is what i recommended, and it says he placed them gl.h files which is what --opengl-headers does ....
