View Full Version : Anyone trying to run AC3 on Ubuntu 12.04?

If anyone has it working, please let me know how you did it.

The main reason why I am trying to do this is because running it on windows sucks. On Ubuntu, everything is ultra fast, but I can't get this particular game working.

What happens, after I get through the installation, I try to run the game on wine. Then, the autopatcher comes into play. It downloads the patches, or acts like it does, then just disappears. No processes after that. I believe it's still trying to patch, since my system runs slower after I try this, but nothing is happening.

Any ideas on what I can do to resolve this? Maybe some hints on what I can do to get it working?

Dead serious.

I can't even get the game to load on my Windows side. Yet, I have the graphics card that's recommended to use.

All of my other hardware is up to par as well. Just, something about Windows makes everything run at half speed.

They integrated DX11 to Ubuntu BEFORE they did to Windows XP. Don't give me that nonsense.

LOL. Wine does not support DX10/11

And Windows XP does not support it either.

Dude, it wont work period, the only way for it to work is to create VM for windows Vista/7/8 and run the game over there, but it would be too **** slow.

Windows XP doesn't even have DX11... and I'm not aware about any Linux application that runs DirectX11.

The game is for certain versions of windows only - using it on other systems is not supported.

It's DX10 game you bozo. The DX11 ******** is Ubisoft propaganda and it's used only for the sloppy tessellation effects.

LOL. Its DX11 game you mofo. Besides it does not matter what it actually uses or not and to what extent when we talk about OS compatibility. Game's exe is hard-linked against d3d11.dll and thats enough.
