Hi! In the previous video I showed how to create a WINEPREFIX and how to install a software. · here I'm going to try some GOG games (DRM-free) and to fix some issues such as: - the installer crashes No big deal in most of the cases, but if the game doesn't properly installs try to add -nogui at the end of the command: WINEPREFIX=~/.gog wine installer.exe -nogui - the main game's .exe doesn't run Every GOG game installs a game link in the Start Menu, try to launch it and see if the game run. they are always located in .../drive_c/users/Public/Start Menu/Programs/ ps. you need to run any non .exe files with "wine start" WINEPREFIX=~/.gog wine start .../users/Public/Start Menu/Programs/ · Another big issue with many games (mostly old ones) is that they tend to mess up the native resolution, this can be easily fixed by: 1) 'enabling a virtual desktop' 2) run the game and set the native resolution 3) disable the virtual desktop if the resolution is messed up, return to your native resolution by typing: xrandr -s 1920x1080 · Thanks for watching! hope you enjoyed :) Recorded with: SimpleScreenRecorder (if you don't hear my voice) OBS Studio (if you hear my voice) libx264 - ultrafast - crf between 18-23 sometimes I re-encode with ffmpeg at crf 18 with a fast-medium-slow preset Check out my Blog: My PC: Arch Linux + JWM Mesa 12.1.0-devel Wine Gaming Nine (AUR) Xeon e3 1245 Gigabyte R9 380 Windforce 16GB Ram DDR3-1600 cl9 ASRock Fatal1ty p67 Performance Shitty HDD
