Getting this sort of stuff to work under linux is very hit an miss.

I've gone through countless guides and blogs when I was using Ubuntu as my main desktop and only had a very low success rate getting the games working, mainly because I was on a laptop running onboard intel for 2d and dedicated nvidia for 3d graphics.

If I remember right, there are some settings that you can change in steam once the linux version is running that can increase your chances of running some things but I can't remember the setting

Well at least you know it works! Wine is good but it’s no match to running .exe files on Windows!

.... Although the results on wine are varying a lot from an exe to another, regardless the machine specs

Just a naive question : isn't there a linux version of the AC server ?
