    Installing Microsoft games on Linux

    Hi All,

    I am trying to install Microsoft games on FC3. I have only installed WINE, is there anything else I can use.

    Games: Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Jedi Outcast......

    Nope, I think the CVS server is outdated...
    Follow this link
    However, it didnīt work for me. There are some people that say paying for transgaming is the best way to go

    Sorry, I am a newbie.

    How does this work. Am I suppose to download the CVS code? Where should I begin?

    When you say it does not do anything for you, can you be more specific? How are you running the script? Are you getting any uotputs? Errors?

    Re:Installing Microsoft games on Linux

    I download WineCVS.sh into my home folder. I double click on the ICON and the script ran. Then after that, nothing I am not sure if it is working.

    I left it along after that. Waiting to see if anyone has a solution for me.

    Scripts are not run by clicking on it. You have to run it from the command line.
    Open a command shell, change directories to the place where you saved the script, and run
    Code:
    sh WineCVS.sh
    Then follow the instructions.
