For my next set of tests I chose to try installing and playing the Fallout series of games. While Fallout 3 is well known, I can whole heartedly say it’s worth playing this franchises’ humble beginnings.
Unfortunately for many Windows Vista and Windows 7 users, this actually isn’t possible as these games don’t run well (or at all) ! Lucky for us, we’re Linux users with our WINE, making it much more likely we can enjoy our vintage gaming…
RUNNING THE GAME:
I’m happy to say that Fallout 1 started up straight away, in fullscreen and all intro videos played fine. I was able to start playing straight away. Character creation went well and soon I was leaving the vault…
The only thing I noticed was the cursor movement over the main part of the game-screen lagged and the game appeared to run a little slow… though over the bottom part of the game control interface the cursor moves just fine. Being predominantly a turn-based game this doesn’t affect gameplay too much, though it is noticeable. I suspect this has something to do with the 2D ATI drivers… will have to do some digging on this…

If you have anything to add to this game test, please feel free to comment. Do post your Wine Version, Linux Flavour and graphics card drivers = NVIDIA or ATI! Help each other out and be nice to one another :)
