    Counter Strike on Linux?


    Just wondering how Counter strike is on Linux systems? I have never played this before on Linux, just Windows and since I refuse to add a dual boot, I wanted to know if the game play and graphics are still what I expect them to be?

    Thanks for any info

    It runs fine (mostly ) on linux.

    Have a nose on www.transgaming.com search for counter strike and read the posts regarding it.

    i dont see why it wouldnt work using winex but i have never tryed it and since the graphics arent all that impressive on counter strike compared to alot of games out now i wouldnt expect them to be anyworse off good luck

    edit: i found this while searching google for counter strike on linux
    http://www.counter-strike.net/linux_full.html <-- counter strike linux port
    http://linux.bankhacker.com/en/softw...DS+Linux+Port/ <-- halflife linux port
    good luck

    another good link http://www.linux.com/howtos/Game-Ser...halflife.shtml
    ps i would look into this alittle more jst to make sure that it is the actual game and not the server stuff

    I've run it through winex and it works fine. The only thing that I had problems with was getting the microphone to work.

    do you mean that it was a issue getting the MIC to work or you bever did get that feature working? I must have a mic in the game because I am a known trash talker to my buddies and it just would not be the same,

    Graphics only go so far but fun factor for me are way beyond any graphics engine I have played

    The graphics look fine as long as you have a decent vid. card. I never got the mic working, but I didn't play with it and that was when ALSA was buggy...I'm not even sure that it had mic support.

    Just run it with plain ol' WINE. counter strike has OpenGL support. Your mic still won't work though. Works for me.

    WineX is a commercial application funded by subscription, $5 per month. That gets you other stuff like Point2Play which is damn useful for configuring stuff.

    They also offer WineX for free. Go to the downloads section on transgaming.com, accept the t&c and you'll have the options of downloading via cvs. And it works. That's the way I did it meself.
