    Cedega 4


    Hmm wondering if anyone has used Cedega (previously known as winex) to run windows applications of it...I know you can run a few... but if anyone has sucessfully managed to run a lot of applications.. please could you tell me if you added any windows dll's to the windows directory. It works pretty good with games but sadly ATI DONT HAVE 3d support right now... software rendering only game running right now is unreal goty

    ATI does have 3D support right now. It just sucks horribly.


    I use neither. Most of my gaming takes place on a console, so I don't have a reason to use cedega. On my PC I play any number of the awesome Open-Source games availaible (http://www.happypenguin.org) or games from companies good enough to write Linux clients (namely: Neverwinter Nights).

    Using things such as cedega, IMHO, hurt our chances of ever getting good Linux support from major game developers. I would rather do without than buy their game just to have it run sub-par in cedega.

    According to this announcement on LinuxGames, the next set of ATI drivers *should* have support for Xorg 6.8, however they won't be released until somewhere around mid-January.

    I answered "windows should stay on windows" (or whatever was written) for the simple fact that, it's not cause in runs on linux that it's going to be bugless!

    Nevertheless, I hope that ATI comes with a proper driver for linux otherwise, since more and more people make the switch, they will start losing many many customers. And since money is surely there 1st priority, losing customers isn't the way of doing business

    Yea Good 2 see ATI noticed that Windows isn't all they've got ... hopefully the rest of the developers will realise the vast influence linux has on users today who are gradually using it or using it with windows side by side on a dual boot or watever... the fact is that developers have to learn that micros oft won't be around forever.

    I used Cedega 4.1 (found free rpm via google, which is legal cuz they were built from the free source via CVS)
