Ubuntu

Post by TheBoo » 03 Jun 2011 01:03

Anybody encounter problems playing TR games (of any kind) under the Ubuntu operating system? I lost my drive this week and will have to purchase another operating system and hard drive (can't find my authentication key for WinXP Pro). Was considering Ubuntu and am trying to find out all the issues I may have to deal with....any comments?

You need a Software like Wine http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wine_(software) . It's a little bit tricky to play Windows-Games under Ubuntu, so maybe it's an good Idea to look into a Ubuntu-Forum like this http://ubuntuforums.org/

Thank you Scottie. Free Ubuntu sounds good, but if there are hassles, it's not worth it to me...I just don't have time to fix software issues. The only games I make time to play is TR level editor games.
Again, Thank You for your reply. I will check it out.
