Grab video code:
I just got this game installed, Prince of Persia 2008. Now this game is sick, if you watched the trailer, it looks fucking tight, okay. The way I installed this is I used Wine of course because Wine has to do everything with Windows shit, all right. Now you also need to install FrontEnd to Wine to play it on Linux. Now playing on Linux uses scripts to install either softwares or games and these scripts will make your life easier because the scripts does every configurations for you so basically all you got to do is like you would do on Windows, click next or you know, I agree to this bullshit and that bullshit, that’s basically all you got to do, that you don’t really have to configure anything.
You click on Install here, they give you a list of stuff you can install. So it’s limited to what it has on here, right. Let’s say, you people don’t need Microsoft office or something, some people don’t need iTunes and it has some other shit that—the game is where it is at, okay. Now we have a list of games here, all right. And see this mind game so—now they're going to give you a brief info on the game and I don’t know, icon or something and it will give you like a rating. I think this rating is based on the script, not on the game itself but on the script so—
So when you click Apply, it is going to do the same shit that it does on Windows, however the first thing it will probably going to tell you to do is install Windows Fonts, and all you got to do is click Next to install it. And also DirectX 9 because you need that to run games and that’s an easy process too, it’s the same thing, just click Next. And after that, it will install the game and basically the same shit and I click Next and that’s why the scripts are there, it does all the scripts for you and that’s why I did it and I got it to work, you know. Before it wasn’t that great, you know? Now they have a list of games here but keep in mind these scripts are not perfect so you're either lucky or you're not, okay? And some of them are really shitty, you know, you got the wrong script or that thing is not perfect, your game is not going to run, okay, or your software is not going to run so, just keep that in mind, trial and error.
Now, this is perfect if your games work, if your games doesn’t have any scripts, you might have to try this thing in here, run non-official scripts. Now the non-official scripts, you can probably get it somewhere in the forums, okay. So you can give that a try if your software or your game is not in there and go look in the forums and ask them where I get this or search Google or something, then someone might have it. And that’s basically this game. Now before this program does not have a mounting drive or something, they only ask you for CDs only or your disc, your physical disc and that’s stupid because nowadays nobody wants to put discs in the fucking CD because that’s a waste of time. Most of us has ISO image on your computer. Now if you want to do that, you could now because they updated the software. You will need an Astone ISO 2 and then you mount your shit, right. Now if you don’t know this program, just watch my other video and you’ll get it.
Now with Astone, all you got to do is when they ask you where is the fucking game set or where is the software at, you're going to point it to your Astone Virtual Drive, or if you have a CD-ROM, just point it to the CD-ROM. That’s all you got to do if you want to do those steps.
So yeah I dig this program now because it actually works for me now. Before I didn’t recommend it because I didn’t get a shit to work, so there you go, check it out. I support them now.
