This is amazing. Between the last post about warcraft 3 and this one with skyrim, PoL is rapidly becoming very powerful (It is but now even more). In a video tutorial about Wine I will be talking about PoL and with this changes, I will mention the changes and development of PoL throughout the years. I got a feeling this year will be something to remember for the Wine/PoL community.

Thank you :)

We are doing our best to test and retest every installer we made, but sometime, things can be missing. Don't hesitate to report problems, that really helps us to improve PlayOnLinux

Great work guys! Thanks for making PlayOnLinux so great.

When I try to install Half-Life 1 it asks for a CD or Setup file, but is there a way to install through Steam?

You guys do an awesome job working on newer games and older games!
Thank you for updating PlayOnLinux to be so flexible, I'm having a LOT of fun playing all of my windows games in Linux.... finally!

I can't wait to try out Skyrim in PlayOnLinux... I'm glad you guys had some successful results.
What are the computer specs for running Skyrim and getting a decent frame rate?
Also what in-game settings did you use? Resolution, anti-allias, etc...

Great to see Half-Life, Monkey Island 4 and Bioshock on the list.
I have run Bioshock and it installs perfectly. No problems playing either.
Actually I will be making a step-by-step tutorial on how to run it in PlayOnLinux.

Looks like Steam Guard is preventing Skyrim from working. When you enter your username and password in to Steam, right as Steam Guard would normally pop up, P4M crashes out.
