    Default playonlinux?

    I am trying to install playonlinux, how do I add it to the repo? I tried the website but did not see it available for opensuse. Thanks for any help.

    So I installed Diablo 2 and Sim City 2000 through wine but when I go to play the game it says I need to have the right disc in the disc drive. How do I fix this, have never tried to install a Windows games on Linux before but I really do miss these games so any help is appreciated.

    As on windows you need the original game discs to install. Playonlinux does only offer a way to install the games on linux because the original install-routines of those games were only written for windows and not for linux/wine. So, for most of the games in the playonlinux-list you still have to pay.
    So, did you find playonlinux in the games-repo? And there is also an older version in the packman-repo...

    Playonlinux does give some extra options, f.e. to install DirectX on wine, VBruntimes etc. One could do that by hand, but the automated procedures Playonlinux offers are much easier.
