    Hi

    I'm a neebie just like you. I've made some games for windows work under linux.

    Try this...

    open a console in the directory where the game has been installed under windows..

    i.e.

    /windows/C/Program Files/...etc

    then in the console type

    # wine {filename.exe}

    Good luck!!!!

    LS

    If it doen't works, try downloading "Cedega" from

    http://www003.portalis.it/115/winexy2556954.html

    Cedega is like Wine but it's been made for gaming.

    Bye

    The link above is for the freely-available version of Cedega. Read the page. You don't *have* to subscribe to get it, you just have to pay to get the official package from Transgaming that supports copy protection schemes.
