well, i got wine to run, but half life just hangs at the menu, when I click anything (even quit) it hangs. I also iinstalled counterstrike, and I can start it all up, but when get to select a server it tells me I have to install the "custom game cstrike", but I am running it!!!! so, the only way it would work is if I could activate it through half life (menu>customize>counterstrike...) but I can't use the menu, any ideas??? Or should I just reinstall everything and pray?

There is a Counter-Strike Linux port at http://www.counter-strike.net/

The other place to go for wine gaming is http://www.transgaming.com. These guys have a special version of wine called WineX that has been tweaked specifically for the newer games.

No offense but what kind of user name is script kiddie. It really isn't that cool unless you are trying to hide behind the front of an AOL so THEY don't catch you.

hey, there's nothing wrong with a good clean sniper shot. I love CS, its real compared to quake, i mean, the weapons are modeled after real guns, I guess its about your personal taste...

I was at the store yesterday and I had a guy read the box to a CS box to me; It said it was only compatable with win9X and NT4.. Now Im thinking this means that it will not work on win2k pro, but with cs comming out earlyer then win2k it may be that its not printed on the box becouse it wasnt out at that time.. since this thread is about CS I just have to ask, will CS work on win2k pro?

[edit] blah.. backwords sentance..lol [/edit]

well, i have it running on xp, so it "should" work on 2000pro, I mean, they are basically the same thing (5.0-5.1)

to answer the question: I remember at the time that M$ did not release a version of directX for win2K, so it would not work in DX modes. Also, some video card drivers did not work under win2k. So it is possible to get it working, but it wa the hardest of all the OS to get it running under.
