Oblivion under WINE


Took a little break yesterday, and got Oblivion running under WINE with AIGLX.
Wine 0.9.29, Oblivion 1.1.5xx, Nvidia 9746, Installed and patched from inside WINE so the WINE Window's registry is correct.

regedit keys:
OffscreenRenderingMode fbo
VideoMemorySize 256
UseGLSL enabled
etc

Oblivion.ini ( various tweaks )
bForce1XShaders=0
bSaveOnInteriorExteriorSwitch=0
etc

That is truly incredible. I just read your tutorial on UbuntuForums, and I'm amazed you managed to pull it off.

Unfortunately my graphics card barely runs Oblivion even under WinXP, but if I ever upgrade, I'll give your method a try. If nothing else, it was enlightening.

I've got a more detailed HOWTO now:

Basically, it fills in a few specific details left out for howto to do each step for x86_64. Mainly for people that cut and paste commands, and don't understand them. ;)

Is it slower than playing on windows?

If so how bad is it? Just curious really I don't even have linux.

I found the wine-making comment hilariously punny, though I doubt it was intended as such...

Hey guys you must'nt turn many effects off to run Oblivion on Linux. I googled around the Web and found some ways to use HDR, for example.
