I'm playing Euro trucks and it needs windows 7. However, Wine hasn't windows 7 version and the game has many bugs. I can't play that game very well. how can I do it?
Also, in Wine Configuration it is possible to select which Windows version to act as:
But I think this does not make that much difference unless a program checks specifically for which Windows version it wants, or if it requires something only available on that version.
Wine can implement DirectX if needed (Version 9 works, 10+ have more limited support). If you don't have it you can use Winetricks to install it (look for
d3dx9 after running
winetricks dlls -
d3dx9_?? describes certain modules that may be needed). If you are using 64bit wine you will probably need to create a 32bit wineprefix first.
- CPU: Dual core CPU 2.4 GHz
- RAM: 4 GB RAM
- GPU: GeForce GTS 450-class (Intel HD 4000)
- DirectX: DirectX 9.0c
- OS: Windows 7
- Storage: 2.0 GB free hard disk space
- ODD: DVD-ROM drive
Which I think your system with Wine can easily provide.
Keep your Wine updated. CrossOver might also have some bug fixes (CrossOver is the paid version and usally get update before wine).
Wine also depends on how well your system is set up, Illegal versions of games might also be crippled, but gold editions are usually late version of games that also hold bug fixes.
I couldn't play Age of Mythology (Original paid version) before I changed to an (illegal I guess) gold version, but I had to fix 3D in the system (old Nvidia legacy laptop card had some hickups but is blazing fast now for what it is. Keywords: vdpau,vaapi and glx).
I still have some trouble with AoM using full screen Wine so the game must run windowed.
You can downgrade wine (if you update as I suggested) if trouble arises. Unlike Windows you still usually get the best from using the latest software, unless updates are in an alpha state.
