I don't know if this helps but with winex3 I can run the game fully in wine with no inhibitations, my frame rates are even higher than with windows. So the dedicated server sounds like it should work

I'd love to get Tribes 1 running with winex3. It installs fine, but when I change from the software driver to the GeForce 4 Open Gl driver, the keyboard no longer responds and the mouse wacks out, but the game looks great. If I run it with the software driver, it gets 30 fps, looks bad, and the keyboard input is fine, except for every once in a while the buttons will act like they're stuck.

If any one has any suggestions this would be great. Tribes is my favorite game and the only reason I have left to have a Windows partition on my HD. If I could get this working, then I could kiss Windows good bye.

Thanks!

I just installed the latest nvidia drivers last night...(it was a bit of a chore getting the module to load, but I did it.)

I'm using the latest winex 3.1. I reinstalled it tonight, as well as Tribes, but no change so far. It works with the software driver, but as soon as I switch to OpenGL mode, the mouse is laggy and the keyboard excepts no commands. I'm going to add the "DXGrab" = "N" to my config file for Tribes to see if that helps. But I wonder what's wrong with the keyboard input?

JunLitsu, what version of wine and what graphics card are you using?

A rather late response - 12 months!!
but hey, just adding to the query

WineX/Cedega
Client and server works fine with no extra configurations as I can remember.
Althou I am not sure on the extra CPU cycles it may use when running it as a server through wineX as you do lose a few frames when running it non natively

Was also running in win98 mode

With the last 3 version of wine it has worked with a few edits.

If your using the Linux ATI Driver (3.9.0 currently) - make sure dga is disabled when you setup the driver config using fglrxinfo - otherwise = Black screen of death

download a win98 version of the DLL dinput.dll (Put this in the system folder of your fake windows drive) and under the DLL Override section in the ~/.wine/config file, add an entry and make sure dinput is set to native,builtin - This fixes the no input from keyboard fix!

runs faster for me in wine but has 2 very Minor bugs when running the client, otherwise rune prefectly!

1. The kicker in KDE stays ontop when running tribes in Fullscreen - easy fix was to auto hide the kicker before running Tribes and then there wasnt a problem.

2. Inbetween Maps sometimes the screen would go red. Note that the game did not crash and once the next map started all was fine

Ohh and seeing this this game is FREE now from FILEPLANET - no excuse to not download it and start playing again - no key needed to play online either.....

The original poster was actually referring to running a dedicated tribes SERVER. (It's easy to get the client/game to work under cedega or wine.)

I'm trying to get the dedicated server to work, and can't seem to do it.


On my Linux box at home i can run dedicated server on wine fine. However, my colocated machine is in california and can only be reached by ssh. There is no X server installed and so using wine isn't a good idea. Is it possible?

I tried freedos-dosemu and it didn't work, hell freedos doesn't even support long filenames!

Any help would be appriciated. Remember, this is the DEDICATED SERVER, Not the client!

Hmm..

I'm totally new to Linux, and I'm running Ubuntu 6.06 LTS.. No idea whatsoever how to operate it... I'm trying to install Starsiege Tribes 1 so I can start up a dedicated server (or two) running the ModX modification. If I could get a step-by-step installation guide that'd be great. I can't seem to find a pre-written one. lolz

Thanks alot!
