Starts fine, plays intro video, then freezes at initial "Choose Gamma"

Oh thats right.  If you are running a 32-bit Distro, then you will always use 32-bit virtual drives and 32-bit Wine.

I'm stumped at this point.  I don't know how the person who wrote the script got Gunslinger running?  We know its possible, but maybe you are right.. it is an AMD problem.  Wish I owned the game and I would test it myself.

Hey again,

 

I'm happy to report that since doing a fresh install of xubuntu 16.04 and then just using the POL-script, Juarez now works! (as far as the main menu at least - I will try next week to play properly). Main change I guess is that I now use the radeon open source driver, which (to me suprisingly) much better than fglrx at many games. Thanks again for your patience! I hope someone has use of this thread sometime.

Ah, I'm not surprised it was something related to AMD drivers.  Please report back if you CAN play the game.  I love hearing success stories.

I'm happy to help!

It runs quite well, no crashes or nothing, but it is sluggish, even on lowest graphical settings, and there are some audio bugs, but I think those are related to the game (I find posts about such things here and there not related to wine). I guess it is to be expected though, since my computer is not supersaiyan or anything. I did play through the first few levels just fine anyhow! I will probably give it a rest until new drivers arrive, or perhaps I get a new computer. I just bought FreeSpace2 to use with Open_FS, so that will keep me occupied!

Awesome!  Time well paid off!

I mostly use Linux Mint on my desktops for gaming.  My GeForce 550 Ti and my GTX 950 play almost all games without issues.  Nivdia drivers rock!

Don't forget to mark this thread as "solved"
