Scripts for Steam games

Tuesday 27 October 2009 at 11:55

Hello everyone!

Those of you who wander the forum may have noticed topics about several scripts for Steam games. The scripts were in test stage for a long time but are now ready for daily use. These scripts configure the following games:

- Half-Life 2
- Half-Life 2: Episode 1
- Half-Life 2: Episode 2
- Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
- Portal
- Team Fortress 2
- Counter Strike: Source

This last script is only an update of the previously available script for Counter Strike : Source with, in addition, a few bug fixes.
Compared to a standard installation, these Steam scripts bring an even easier installation as well as better performances, because we did select the best suited version of Wine for each game.

I want to thank in particular Obi1-46 for his graphic work (that you can see in the installers) as well as BlondVador, Panzer, Obi1-46 (one more time) and everybody else for their very exhaustive tests that allowed me to improve the scripts, and NSLW for pointing out a careless mistake of mine.

From now on, you will find these scripts directly in PlayOnLinux's "Install" menu.

A few screenshots:

Have fun :sunglasses:.

Hi,
     
To answer the many questions, assumptions, questioning.

Yes the server that hosts the Wine versions for PlayOnLinux and DirectX (and some other files) is offline and you are getting this message "Wine packages website is unavailable".

We are currently looking for a solution to this problem and hope to return as soon as possible to normal.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

EDIT by Tinou : The problem will be solved very soon. Please be patient.

WineVersion (some information)

Sunday 6 September 2009 at 17:13

Following a change of environment building packages for Wine WineVersion, this versions have been updated:
- Wine 1.1.27
- Wine 1.1.28
- Wine 1.1.29

This update concerns the support of the GSM library, which is an audio compressor.
Unless you want to use this functionality in these versions of Wine, you do not need to re-install.


Wine version 1.1.29 (and probably the following) (will) uses the external library (libmpg123) to decode mp3 files (from changelog and configure script).
This library is not currently available in the build environment used.
Support decoding of mp3 files will probably may no longer work.
The installation of this library involves a loss of compatibility with distributions released before 2008 (Mandriva 2008.0 for example). Currently all distributions out since 2006 are compatible.

If the lack of MP3 support is a problem, unsupport certain distribution is also a problem. So I choose the support a maximum of distribution and leaves mp3 not supported
If he really need the mp3, there will be 2 packages, one with mp3 support but limited in distribution and package without supporting mp3 but working on more distribution

PLEASE: Run this program in console and paste the output here with the entire name of your distribution (only if nobody have post for your distribution, or if it's not the same output).
http://mulx.homelinux.net/pol/version.bin (binary (chmod +x version.bin && ./version.bin))
http://mulx.homelinux.net/pol/version.c (source code)

Thanks.

UPDATE: Ok thanks for every people that post their libc version provide by their distribution. You can always post, but I have found that I search.

PlayOnLinux version 3.6

Saturday 4 July 2009 at 22:46

Hello everyone !!

A little news to announce that PlayOnLinux 3.6 is out.

- The novelty this time is the integration of winetricks (which has been modified for PlayOnLinux) by use of the "tricks" command.
This way script writers will be able to use it easily.

I also took this opportunity to clean out the code by deleting useless files and corrected minor bugs.
