    mafia


    i have Mafia and used the loki installer to install it on my linux computer. install works great but when i try to run it it says it doesnt like a debugger it sees and wont work. ok, ive read something explaining why i get thiese messages with certian things so in understand this. so i look at the readme for the loki installer and it said i WILL need wineX 3.0. so my question is how do i get winex 3.0? ive seen threads about it before and they have said that you can get it for free and give a link but the link just takes you to transgamings website where i cant find a download for it. is it not legal to get winex 3.0 for free or am i just not looking hard enough?

    Last I checked, Transgaming only provides WineX free through CVS. Pre-packaged copies and the Point2Play package require a subscription. Other than that, I don't know.

    http://transgaming.org/cvs/

    But I don't know if they have WineX 3

    The latest version of Cedega (formerly WineX) is 4.1.1. That's probably what's available on the CVS site, minus the copy protection algorithms of course.

    Chris H provided the link in the post above. CVS is a system for managing source code on a software project in progress. Transgaming lets you download and compile their "in-progress" source code free of charge, provided you can get it to work. The ability to work with copy-protected CDs is a patent issue, so obviously they can only offer that in their paid product.

    It's a patent issue because different copy protection algorithms (such as SecuROM and SafeDisc) are copyrighted, and any decoding software is also copyrighted. Cedega can't just give information like that away.

    I *believe* (though I'm not actually sure) that Transgaming did pay for the right to decode the copy-protected CDROMs, and that's the reason they don't give that out, because of license agreements with the makers of SecuROM, SafeDisc, etc.
