Any advice for running PC games via Wine x86?

Post by brettzx » Thu Nov 29, 2018 2:59 pm

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, it's just a blank screen with the loading circle going but never actually loading, but I *think* this is a Chromium browser issue. Can someone confirm this assumption is correct?

Wolenstien 3D runs but, in either a Window, or full screen, it is a little tiny box that is only 3/4" x 1". Editing the config file for DOSBox (which the game uses to run in Windows has no effect on the Window size). Otherwise the game plays fine. Any advice on getting full screen to work correctly?

Has anyone gotten games either via Steam or directly installed to work? If so what games? Any software recommended to install first (ie. DirectX, video drivers etc.)?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
