"Summary: If you've come to Linux Ubuntu from Windows, you probably left behind a few favorite computer games. You may already know that Wine can help you play them again; in some cases, however, the solution is less than perfect.That's where this tutorial can help.

"There are times when, as a Linux user who does not have a Windows-based operating system installed, you would like to play your favorite Windows game in a Linux environment using Wine. Sadly, in most cases, the game will run under less optimal/desirable conditions than when it is executed under Windows environment.

"This means that the games will be plague with a lot of technical issues. These can include:

* Uncontrollable/undesirable game lag
* Inappropriate game colors
* Bad sound or no sound at all
* A very slow game overall; not just lag, but a slowdown that affects the frames, mouse speed, and more."
