    Any Linux gamers here?

    Who has tried running games lately? I've got WoW to work almost flawlessly before the patch, others like MW2 have brought up sound/FPS issues unfortunately. Some of the unexpected results have been pretty funny though.

    Been using a mix of PlayOnLinux/WINE and pre-installed games from my Windows partition. Any tips for troubleshooting stuff? What have you got working well on Linux?

    Osmos (Hemisphere Games Osmos –)

    It's beautiful, mind-bendingly frustrating, and comes packaged in .deb and .rpm.

    I play World of Warcraft mainly, some FPS like Half Life, Mafia, Doom3, sometimes The SIMs3 and I also like Neuzuiz and Hedgewars.

    I got World of Warcraft running last night. That was an achievement in itself after days of testing, fixing, re-testing and repeat. It's definately not for the faint hearted!

    Cedega is still going? I tried something called PlayOnLinux but that failed big time, so I removed it and found straight up no-frills WINE easier.

    Yeah, it's still going, I tend to swap between wine and cedega depending on what I want. I am addicted to Starcraft 2 now, never thought I would like a strategy game but its cool, don't have much time to play it though as Warcraft eats up my life!
