Gaming Without Other People

Filed under: Games — Cranky Sysadmin @ 8:52 pm

I’ve been playing Dragon Age Origins a lot recently. It’s a really fun single player game. I’m a bit put off by the game information which gets uploaded by default, but the settings are easy enough to change. For now, I am enjoying single player games more then MMO’s.
Why would anyone play single player games now?

Dragon Age on Ubuntu

Filed under: Games — Cranky Sysadmin @ 7:05 pm

Just a quick note. After a lot of puttering around destroying my current wine settings, I finally got Dragon Age running…. by following the instructions… The only thing I had to add was dotnet 2.0 so the module loader would work. I’m using wine 1.1.38 with the pulseaudio patches (pulseaudio is not needed). If you try to get Dragon Age running, I suggest using a different WINE_PREFIX as many settings are incompatible with other game settings.
