how to install gameranger ?
I did some reading here on WineHQ's
Gameradar seems to be a web-based client that allows you to chat with friends and join a game. Kinda like Steam.
But, it requires flash, which means you will need to install Adobe's Flash Player in the virtual drive.
It has a "Gold" rating which means someone got it working in Wine, but I've never used it.
I got gameranger working, however I have not been able to actually test if it can launch games properly. I only have two games that require gameranger for multiplayer, and that is Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends. I do have a plan to test those games if I can get a friend to purchase those games on Steam.
One important thing to note is that according to WIneHQ, it appears that it works for some games, but fails for other games.
The page booman references details all the additional libraries you must install with PlayOnLinux for the gameranger to be able to launch properly.
i already installed GR but i had problem with adobe flash player. Can you tell me how install Adobe flash player in the wirtual drive ?
I would do it the exact same way its done in Windows:
Go To: www.adobe.com
Click the "menu"
At the bottom, click Flash Player
Unchek stupid options (McAfee)
Save it on your desktop (Firefox automatically saves in Downloads)
Select Virtual drive on the left
Click Miscellaneous Tab
Click "Run an .exe file in this virtual drive"
Select Flash Player
Actually, I just selected flashplayer in from the PoL libs. Much easier.
adobe flash player must be for windows or linux ? sorry for basic question but i had linux from 2 days
Since you are installing software in Wine, you will of course need the Windows version.
Are you installing with PlayOnLinux, or you using Wine directly? If you are using PlayOnLinux, then you can install flash player directly through the PlayOnLinux interface without needing to download it yourself.
A little tip, if you are new to Linux then I would strongly suggest you spend a bit of time to read the available documentation available on the official website for the distribution you are using. Reading up on the basics would help you a lot in the long run.
I never tried installing Flash Player from the Package Installer. Awesome tip!
