I'm kind of rediscovering Linux and I was amazed to see and hear about PlayOnLinux! I'm so thankful of the people who make this possible. Thank you Thank you!
So my first question is how should I be playing my Steam Games? I've managed to get Steam Installed easy enough but when I go to play Half Life 1 (yea I know it's old, I thought it would be a good test) it seemed to freeze up at the loading screen. It was a strange kind of freeze. I immediately could tell that the resolution of the game was very low, somewhere like 800 x 600. I wasn't able to click on the buttons in the menu like "exit" so I tried ALT+f4, CTRL ALT DELETE and I believe what happened was the application exited but my screen was froze on the Half Life screen still. I moved my mouse around and clicked a bunch and I could hear the OS responding with my chat sounds and such but to no avail, I never regained visuals of the OS again, it was stuck on the Half Life screen.
This game is supported I believe. So I'm unsure of what I need to do.
Here is some information.
