Hi!

Some games share the same issues under Wine, this is because many games are developed using the same Engine (such as Unreal Engine, Chrome Engine, etc..).

So if you understand the Engine problems you automatically know what problems its games are going to suffer.

For example with Unreal Engine 3 almost every game need a .NET3.5 or 4.0 override using winetricks.
This can save you a lot of time instead of looking for a solution for every single UE3 game.

to use winetricks:

WINEPREFIX=~/prefix winetricks -q package1 package2 package3 etc..

the "-q" (quet mode) option bypasses all installer hassle and install the package straight

Hi!

· To switch to a 64-bit prefix you need to create a new wineprefix.
Rename the previous prefix (or just create a new one):
mv prefix prefix_renamed

· remove WINEARCH=win32 to actually create a 64-bit prefix (on a shortcut comment it out with #)

· Then move the game/software files to the new folder
mv prefix_rename/drive_c/FILES prefix/drive_c/

·

Hi!

Check my previous videos if you want to learn how to use Wine!

·

On his video I show the differences between the 3 Wine version:
- Wine (aka vanilla)
- Wine Staging
- Wine Gallium Nine

·

Wine Gallium Nine provides some huge performance boost, anyway it's not flawless.
Sometime it doesn't work at all :(

In any case this project is very active and the people behind it works a lot to fix all the various bugs!

Hi!

In the previous video I showed how to create a WINEPREFIX and how to install a software.

·

here I'm going to try some GOG games (DRM-free) and to fix some issues such as:

- the installer crashes
No big deal in most of the cases, but if the game doesn't properly installs try to add -nogui at the end of the command:
WINEPREFIX=~/.gog wine installer.exe -nogui

- the main game's .exe doesn't run
Every GOG game installs a game link in the Start Menu, try to launch it and see if the game run.
they are always located in .../drive_c/users/Public/Start Menu/Programs/GOG.com/game..
ps. you need to run any non .exe files with "wine start"
WINEPREFIX=~/.gog wine start .../users/Public/Start Menu/Programs/GOG.com/...

·

Another big issue with many games (mostly old ones) is that they tend to mess up the native resolution, this can be easily fixed by:

1) 'enabling a virtual desktop'
2) run the game and set the native resolution
3) disable the virtual desktop

if the resolution is messed up, return to your native resolution by typing:

xrandr -s 1920x1080

Hi!

On this video I'm showing how to create a 32 or 64-bit WINEPREFIX to better manage the different software

·

- create a 32-bit WINEPREFIX:
WINEARCH=win32

- if not architecture is specified, WIne create a 64-bit WINEPREFIX

- create a specific WINEPREFIX:
WINEPREFIX=/path/to/your/desired/wineprefix

·

to summarize (let's install steam in a dedicated 32-bit prefix):
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-steam wine SteamSetup.exe

·

Always remember to select the right WINEPREFIX, if not the default ~/.wine is used

Hi!

I would like to start a video-series where I explain how Wine works and how to use it.

Wine is a software in constant development.
Every new improvement is merged to the main development, nothing is removed or drastically changed.
A new Wine release add something more to the previuos release, especially many bug fixes regarding games or videogames engines.

To summarize:

a) if you need to run just a few non-gaming software you probably won't
need the latest development version. Stick with the Stable Wine version
that let your software to run.
Staging and Gallium Nine will probably be useless to you..

b) If you're playing mainly Games you should always get the latest
available version and consider using:
- Wine Staging is you're on Nvidia with the Open Source Drivers
- Wine Gallium Nine if you're using the open source drivers

If you're on Arch and based Distro you should give a try to Wine Gaming
Nine from the AUR, even on Nvidia + proprietary, because it has many
great hacks (such as the steam-store fix)
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/wine-gaming-nine/
yaourt -S wine-gaming-nine

Other Distro:
