james1138Morning all. I have a question about playing a old win95 game on Lubuntu - MechWarrior 2. I found my old copy and thought to ask before trying and maybe giving myself headache. Any suggestions?15:15
tewardjames1138: wine15:16
ubottuWINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu15:16
tewardthough, it hasn't been tested at all15:16
tewardjames1138: i lied, but it looks like it doesn't work well at all - see https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=520715:17
teward(I think that's what yo uwere looking for)15:17
james1138Thanks Teward. But it is not Mech 2 Merc... it is just standard non-titanium Mechwarrior 215:19
tewardjames1138: ah, well, i couldn't find that in the appdb15:19
tewardit's entirely possible that it works, but i'm looking in the wine email lists and getting a "it's not working" vibe from the emails there15:20
james1138Darn... I may have to try and track down the DOS version.   8-(15:21
tewardyou're free to try yourself though15:21
james1138What about "winetricks" or "playonwine"?15:23
tewardwinetricks is part of wine, won't help much; PlayOnLinux may help, but I'm not an expert there15:25
tewardit may be old enough that PoL doesn't work with it15:25
