Ignition (a racing game) Runs on Ubuntu with Wine

Filed under
Gaming
HowTos

Ignition is an old racing game that is now abandonware and it runs pretty well under Wine. As it’s abandonware (the company that created it no longer exists) it’s available to download from the Internet.

Step One: Installation

It’s probably best to create a separate Wine prefix for this game. The reason is that as its an old game the menu screen runs at a 320×200 resolution, it’s unlikely that your Xorg configuration supports that so as a workaround we can tell Wine to run it in an emulated desktop rather than true fullscreen. So, once the file is downloaded, extract it somewhere temporarily, and open a terminal to the folder containing SETUP.EXE.

While it will take longer than a radical switch, it is the best I can do right now. Eventually though, I'd like to run all but one system on Linux and not Windows.

5 Surprising Reasons Behind The GNOME Resurgence

When the team behind GNOME came out with GNOME 3, which included the infamous GNOME Shell, the most popular desktop environment of the time saw a sharp decrease in users. And honestly, that trend is pretty easy to explain. When GNOME 3 initially came out, it was incomplete, buggy, and foreign. The concepts behind GNOME Shell were never before seen on a desktop system, and lots of users who were used to panels/taskbars and menus didn’t like the rather dramatic changes. Read more
