Any advice for running PC games via Wine x86?

Using Asus Zenfone Zoom (x86 processor) with Wine x86 3.21. I can run Steam and install games but most don't start. They do not show an error message either, just nothing happens. One exception is the game Risk of Rain causes an error message to appear and then Wine freezes. The store doesn't show, ...

Re: /storage/emulated/0/ open an exe "access denied"

Have you tried going to "sdcard" instead of "storage" via the browse menu in run? Have you granted storage permissions for Wine in Android?

Re: Does Wine for Android x86 support games?

Update, I was able to install and run Wolfenstein 3D via Steam (it probably works because the game installs DOSBox to run in Windows). It was pretty fun to be playing an actual Steam game on a smartphone! Hacker's Keyboard allowed me to interact with the game, along with simulated mouse clicks via t...

Re: can someone help me out with wifi

The internet worked as soon as I installed Wine (x86 version). I did not need to tweak any settings to get it to work. The built in browser in Wine worked just fine for me.

Re: Android OS, how to activate gboard ?

Install Hacker's Keyboard, turn on permanent notification in it's settings. This creates a notification in the notification area of the phone that allows the keyboard to be manually activated.

Re: Android x86 Access Denied

Did you turn on storage permission for the Wine app in Android settings? I use the install function of Wine to navigate to my phones download folder for installer files. I'm using the Wine x86 build and I was able to install Steam without issue, and games seem to install but don't actually start. Th...

Re: how to open the folders in my android phone ?

Since you posted this more than a month ago you probably figured out the easiest method is to just use a mouse. I used an adapter for the usb to connect it to my phone. You could probably also use a bluetooth keyboard with a touchpad. Alternatively, you could use the run command from the wine menu t...

I installed multiple versions of Wine x86 for Android on a Asus Zenfone Zoom (which has an Intel Atom processor) and after tinkering around, I was able to get Steam installed. Version 3.12 allowed me to install games (version 3.18 would not allow me to log in to Steam), but the games will not actual...
