    Hi everyone! I'm NoyTheBiche and i'm a Linux User! (Ubuntu and ArchLinux!)

    I've join this forum to bring a Linux / Mac compatibilty to Windows programs that GBATemp uses!

    Thanks to....PlayOnLinux and PlayOnMac!

    These two programs are used by the No-Windows community to use some Windows program on Mac and Linux!
    That's why i'm here, to bring a compatibily for those systems. I create script to make Windows programs working on those systems.

    I'm 18, and i live in Strasbourg, France!

    Good bye! :D

    Of course! you can launch Overwatch on Linux! it's working but it has some graphical glitches. The developpers of Wine (a program to launch Windows programs) is working on a fix. ;)
    You can try Overwatch thanks to Lutris. a PlayOnLinux-like.

    I personally use KVM + qemu + GPU passthrough, about 98% native performance on linux

    Kvm is a VM but it is a bare metal one and you can pass your gpu to it to have about 98 % native windows performance

    I'm using this on ArchLinux ^^ But, i think it's difficult for a simple Linux user to use qemu and a gpu passthrough.

    PlayOnLinux sucks, plain Wine is better... and should be used sparingly (but without fear.)

    Give me some solution to play Momodora 3 at the right speed on OSX and I'll be grateful.
    I've thrown every option and tweak I've thought of into Wine, but still it runs exactly half speed because of... who knows? Certainly not because of CPU or GPU usage.

    PS: Played like that for a while, then I felt kind of groggy... It is like playing Sonic on a European Megadrive, but even worse.

    Wait.... if you want i can make a script to support your game... it's a 2D Game. Or you can just edit your Steam wine installation to support CSMT.

    Greetings new member! I am the Linux Queen of the Temp! I have been an exclusive Linux user going on 10 years now and I am currently using Solus Linux.
    I personally don't use PlayonLinux, stock Wine always gets the job done for me.

    Welcome onboard buddy. When I bought in 2014 my first pc, an Intel NUC 2830, I choosed Kali Linux (wich is essentially Debian) as my first OS; I installed both WINE and POL but when but when I saw Street Fighter x Megaman running so slow (maybe the integrated graphics card), I quit trying more games until today. The latest Linux toy that I got and from where I'm posting this message, Pocket CHIP, I only use it for PICO8, Retroarch and some other non intensive apps but I doubt that I can even play Street Fighter x Megaman if I install WINE in this. Maybe I would try again to struggle with WINE again if I move my ass and se my Alienware Alpha R2 dual boot Linux/Windows 10, at least that time I won't blame on the machine's specs if something does not work.

    So I could install OW to a flash drive, plug it in to a linux PC, then use WindowsOnLinux and play it? Nice.
