Mass Effect Reborn on Linux

Post by PayDay on June 6th 2014, 12:30 am

Hello guys,

On Unix-based systems like Ubuntu you can use Wine to start Windows applications.
I tested Homeworld 2 with MER on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and it is running great.

Because Wine uses OpenGL for everything, the shaders are perfect too. It maybe should even work with the Nvidia cards, it runs on the built-in Ubuntu graphics driver.

With my system, I get around 80fps ingame, on Windows I only get 30.
So if you like Linux, just try it out.

Because Homeworld 2 is using Microsoft DirectPlay and Wine does not support that right now, multiplayer is not working.

My system: http://www.sysprofile.de/id183837
WineHQ: http://www.winehq.org/

Just wanted to tell you this, if someone wants to use Linux.
