Trackmania United Forever Running on Ubuntu 9.10 Question

Post by gabriel_wdsilva » 06 Mar 2010 15:12

Hello everyone, I installed linux a time ago on my PC, and was thinking to run TMUF with Wine...
Well, actually works, but somethings happens:
1. Crashes sometimes when connected or not connected.
2. Fullscreen is pretty bug, so I use windowed for no crash.
3. Don't have sound
4. Its pretty lag, I run it now, but its pretty playable.... WOrks online, connect sucefull!

I have copied the My Documentes/Trackmania to the Home Folder... And they load the statics, the serial, and records...
I reach the menu, with Solo, Multiplayer, but I was need to close because the graphics was little glitch (I change fullscreen to windowed)

Anyone help?

EDIT: I make a Trackmania shortcut (are on Documents folder on WIndows) on Home Folder, but still don't test it...

When using wine it's always a good idea to look up the game on the wine page. http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.p ... &iId=11592 There you'll find some hints which could help you out.

From personal experience with TMNF and wine, I can only recommend you to set up a dual boot environment.

Hm, this tips are good... I preffer don't change too many things on wine for not corrupt my Ubuntu on some way..
If need plays TM, I can boot on Windows 7 ^^
The mouse worked, connected and the gameplay have some WEIRD lines...
I will try put MINIMAL graphic, they sould be work.

use playonlinux, it allows you to use different versions of wine and stuff. each application you install can have its own version of wine installed. really slick and easy to use. and btw, im using it with lucid now and its working nearly as good as windows. sound is fine and the game is smooth.
