Video game update

Posted By on February 25, 2007

In my New Year's post I mentioned that I was going to try and play more video games, and that I wasn't going to use Wine, because it was too unreliable. responded and says that Wine has gotten a lot better. Consequently, I will now be testing every Windows game on Wine before I start to play it under Windows.

The first test is Diablo (the original one). It installed fine, as did the expansion, but then I went to play it and the screen is all black. It appears that the menu is there but not being displayed. However, this basically means that you can't start the game.

So, I'm playing it on the Wintendo.

Then I got distracted by Destroy all Humans 2, and started playing that. Now that I've beaten it, I'll likely go back to Diablo.
