    Wine issues

    ughh im getting sick of this message everytime i try to install and play halflife.

    "halflife requires 16 bit color. please change your desktop settings to hicolor. somethis this is called 32767 colors" or "65535 colors".

    does anyone know how to fix this even though my desktop runs at 24 bit

    This is going to sound stupid, but you have to use 16bit. It doesn't like 24 bit, it doesn't like 32bit, it will only work on 16bit. I had the same problem myself.

    i'd recommend using wineX anyways...
    as for the 16 bit and what not, i have no clue because i haven't used wine in a while
