Conclusion: too laggy, especially with water
While a really great game, it somehow didn't do it for me.
I used this back in the day, and had pretty good results. I ended up switching to Windows, mostly for this game.
Using Wine was a significant project. Others had, even during my months of experimentation, reported they had things running just fine. I did have it running fairly well, but not well enough for me at the time. This ultimately lead to my abandoning using Wine at my earliest opportunity. I might have tried PlayOnLinux or codeweavers, and I might have even paid for it, but using Windows was easy enough once I dual-booted into it.
Well this was an amusing thread to read through. I ended up changing from reading to skimming because it just got to ridiculous. There are so many trolls and ignorant derps sprouting crap.
I had some significant attempts using this to run World of Warcraft, but it was ultimately unsuccessful.
Wine Is Not an Emulator
- Yes. Yes it is.
