I got a small question:

I own a bunch of native Games (all humblebundles and more wink.gif)

I just want to ask if there would be any interest in howtos on howto install, solve problems during install/playing and so on.

Oki wink.gif

I'm currently in the Process of installing all my Games and writing Howtos if necessary.

My Idea was that i create one Thread with all the Games and Information (No Questions allowed) and one Thread for Questions (It makes no Sense imho to create whole new threads for just "runs fine without Problems" wink.gif

In the main thread i would just link all Gameposts of the thread to the first post so everything would be easy to find wink.gif

EDIT: So far i covered 32 Native Linux Games. Most run OOTB but some need soe tweaking. Just a few more and i can star the Thread. Till now i didnt cover any Freely available Game.

Status update:

Im still on it but ran into some problems....

After some time, some of the Games just stopped working.

For example: The Binding of Isaac ran fine for several days. After a pause of 2 weeks it isnt working anymore....
It says:

error reading
Error: finding bound Package
Error: Initialiasing Projector

Its kinda strange but im on it wink.gif

Update:

It wont happen sad.gif . I ran into too much Problems with my Games Collection and SL. Random crashes, sound issues (i tried padsp as a wrapper, but it only worked sometimes) and some Games just need a reboot to stop working.

I switched my Main Machine to Fedora to avoid those Problems.
