    I have installed Spore and Galactic Adventures in Ubuntu 12.04 using wine-1.4, but when I try to launch Galactic Adventures, the normal game launches. Is there any way to get it to launch with the patch?

  • I don't know about running Spore and Spore GA under wine, but under their normal host OS, to play GA, you have to launch GA from its own installed shortcut and you need to have the GA disk. If you don't, it will run normal Spore. From your description, it sounds like either a) the launcher you are using is for normal spore, not the GA launcher, or b) its DRM isn't seeing the GA disk, so it is just going running normal Spore.

    That was one advantage to installing GA--- it "cracked" normal Spore so the Spore disk was no longer needed at start up to play the normal Spore game. Useful when you wanted to travel but not worry about losing your GA disk.

I am trying this with my native ubuntu 12.04 and I have ubuntu 13.04 in Virtual machine on which I am testing installation. Why Steam on Ubuntu 12.04 allows me to install Heroes 5, but it breaks when I press a keyboard key? And why Steam on ubuntu 13.04 says...I want to play Heroes 5 on my ubuntu 13.04.

  • I recently found there are several layers of programs (some commercial) one can put on top of WINE to run games better and do everything easier. I'm using PlayOnLinu 4.2.1 with Wine 1.7.4 in 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04. I have previously successfully installed Civilization V with both expansion packs and copied C&C The First Decade even before I got Play on Linux, with Wine alone. (although the second didn't work, I didn't have winetricks, now I could really install, not just copy The First Decade folders and files) I've tried just about anything to install the game, installing through the CD
