In mswin xp, i’m having the game crash in full screen. So, i’m forced to reboot after a short time of playing. I have all the latest updates and drivers. Also, i’m fairly sure it’s not an overheat problem.
Is it possible to install and run the game using wine? Also, be able to shut it down without a restart in suse in full screen.
I have open suse 11.4 with wine installed. I’v run one program with wine(exe). So, i’m lost. Wine forums have pages on it. It’s all confusing. Someone on WineHQ pointed out the pages for “far cry 2”, but that it. I have the retail version of it. Not sure of the version number. So, I need to install the game and maybe patches to into wine. I need the basics for how to install it into suse. Explained for someone with some experience with command lines.
Do I need to install the nvidia drivers into suse? What’s playonlinux?? Wine tricks??
The game has got platinum rating (the highest one) so it should run great under wine. In the link I’ve given You are quite precise instructions on how to install it (they start with “Works @ Ubuntu 8.04 / 8.10 (32bit & 64bit)”). Read them carefully and execute on openSUSE. Don’t worry about that they state it works on Ubuntu it should work here as well. Try first with the wine version from repositories. Only if that does not work compile exactly the same version they state in the howto or simply run it in Ubuntu 8.04
