Question I have a question...

I've been searching for a way to play Soldier of Fortune 2 on my linux box (getting tired of dual booting). I was wondering if anyone knows of a program (other than wine because it doesnt work for me) that could help me in this sitiuation. I'm really tired of Hex-P and I'm a gammer so this kinda screws me. The only thing I like about Hex-P on my machine, is the 10 gig partition I have, when it breaks (the inevitable) I can formatt it quicker than you can say "Windows users pay way too much to be beta testers". Hope someone can help.

For games that use DirectX, which i assume Soldier of Fortune does, you need to use WineX. If you never heard about it before, WineX is a commerical product by Transgaming that allows you to play windows games on linux. If you are serious about quitting your dual booting ways, this would be a option for you. I had winex a while back and it worked for what i needed, and its got alot better since then too. You can head over to transgaming's website check their game database to see if your game is supported.
