The Elder Scroll series has consistently provided awesome RPG experiences. While this game title is a few years old now, I still play TES Oblivion regularly. This was the first Steam game I tried installing and playing on my Ubuntu Linux box.
- No library overrides required.
- Set Audio > Direct Sound to “emulation” if you lose sound in game.
If you experience audio lagging in Oblivion when the music changes you may need to go into your Wine C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/oblivion/Data folder and make a backup copy of the Music folder. Then go into the original Music folder and delete everything in there. You won’t have any in-game music, but for me that was actually ok as playing without the music makes the game that much more immersive…
RUNNING THE GAME:
Oblivion launches and runs ok with all settings on high – but with noticeably lower frame rates than when running on Windows… Frame-rates really take a big hit when multiple NPC’s are on screen at the same time. Even turning off shadows or grass doesn’t make much difference.
WINETRICKS .verb INSTALLER NOTES: [general installer help here]
The oblivion_gotye.verb installer will install Steam + Oblivion in it’s own wineprefix. You may still need to set Direct Sound to Emulation if you have problems…
