Whee! Yet More Linux Gaming!

So, Wine 1.1.43 has been released with more Direct3D hackery and now allows me, for the first time, to play Command & Conquer: Renegade (old 3d shooter). All without me doing anything special to get it to work. KICK ASS!
This was and probably still is my favorite internet FPS, we'll see how it holds up to my memories.
It still has a few rendering bugs here and there, but nothing that makes it unplayable yet, mostly just cut-scene corruption.
I've been looking forward to this day for a number of years. Great Job Wine Devs!

I recommend trying this version to anyone who attempted an older game on Linux awhile ago and it didn't work.
So far this version truly is the best Wine I've tried.
