But I am curious how CS runs in Wine under Linux....I've only played it under Windows so far.
Well it'll depend on your system of course, but here's my system:
I was able to install using regular wine up to the point where CS asks for the CD key (which wouldn't accept input). Upgraded to wineX under CVS, and then that worked.
Was able to install the patches after a bit of problems finding the correct patch... as well as "The Specialists" mod.
It crashes every now and then around certain maps, and after switching maps in T.S. often I allways start out with an empty config, even after having bought stuff. Sometimes 'retry' in the console fixes, other times not.
Sound works fine even though my card is crap, havn't tried the microphone.
@640x480 under software mode, it runs fairly smooth (15fps with nearby gunfire, 30fps without), except for with smoke gernades (although setting the 'pretty' level to lowest fixes that) and T.S. gunfire (aka shotguns).
Latancy isn't bad at all: I get around 48ms using broadband to a same-city server (Seattle).
note: ./configure --with-ntpl --with-x --disable-trace --enable-opengl --disable-debug
didn't work... trying again with pthreads....
