Site Re-Development

On August 15, 2014, in news, by support

I am working on rebuilding SteamGamesOnLinux.com as the current site needs better search / data management… Members will be able to submit content / ask for help much easier as member profiles will include what system specs they have, linux flavour etc. Even though Steam has Linux games now there are a lot of Steam games that will never be ported to Linux…

 

Steam Native Linux vs. Windows + WINE client

On May 22, 2014, in technical stuff, winetricks, by support

Just a quick note to say that most of these tips / tricks to get these games working are based on using the WINDOWS Steam client installed and run with WINE – not the NATIVE Steam client.

Problems noted: Without the xact override, Dustforce doesn’t play past the title screen. At least from my tests
