'WarFrame' On Ubuntu 12.04 32-Bit (ATI HD 7970)

Notice: test done in a Xen virtual machine with VGA passthrough feature for ATI card. Warframe is a wonderfull free-to-play. It works perfectly on Ubuntu 12.04 for my graphic card HD 7970. I am using the proprietary driver 13.04 from AMD.

Option 1 - Using Steam

It works fine on Linux. If you have Steam installed then you can go use your Steam Client to download it and install it

Option 2 - Install the game manually

  1. Either install/build wine or update your wine version.
  2. Just a few things to install for wintricks
     winetricks d3dx9 xact xact_jun2010

'Merchants of Brooklyn' on Ubuntu 12.04 32-Bit (ATI HD 7970)

Notice: test done in a Xen virtual machine with VGA passthrough feature for ATI card.. This game is a bit old. I was wondering if it could be played on Linux. After a few investigations it seemed to run fine. Wine needs to be patched with the well know patch for Crysis 1
