    Enclave is an older 3rd person view hack-n-slash game where you progress through small linear maps. Fight Orcs, Goblins, theifs and other monsters. The story is simple, the quests are linear, its a fun button masher for quick gaming satisfaction.



    Follow my step-by-step guide on installing, configuring and optimizing Enclave in Linux with PlayOnLinux.

    Note: This guide applies to the GOG version of Enclave. Other versions may require additional steps.

    Set the resolution to match your Linux desktop for fullscreen

    Select Graphics
    Adjust decals, shadows, Level of Detail and surfaces

    Select Textures
    Adjust world and character textures
    Increase or decrease anisotrophy

    Rule of thumb:
    High Setting = More detail, lower frame rates
    Low Setting = Less detail, higher frame rates

    Enclave ran extremely well since it is a directx 9 game from GOG.com
    I cranked everything to high and it supported high resolutions.
    I was impressed with the texture quality and the lighting for such an old game.
    Enclave should run on any laptop and maybe even some netbooks.

    very good guide as always, classic game, first titles with pixel shaders (xbox conversion), good excuse for buy geforce 3ti / geforce 4ti when out to market

    normally runs without mayor issues (only gamma changes but dont grave)

  2. booman
    Yeah, what is up with the gamma/brightness? All I have to do is open Nvidia controls and the gamma resets, but its quite annoying!
  3. mrdeathjr28
    This issue stay since time ago (remember appear when begins test in blog) only needs re open nvidia settings for correct brightness (similar thing occur in tom clancy hawx 1, hawx 2)

    Changing a bit theme wine 1.7.27 out and in my channel update some test with lastest nvidia drivers out yesterday (343.22)

    In good news mirrors edge back to to work and various titles have better performance like as mortal kombat komplete edition

  4. booman
    Ooh, awesome! Did you have to do anything different for Mirror's Edge to run?
  5. mrdeathjr28
    With only Nvidia 343.22 mirrors edge - homefront back to run

  6. booman
    Ah updated your drivers...
    I don't normally update my Nvidia drivers because I stick with the stable from Mint.
    So I wonder if its broken for me?
    I think I'm using 331...
  7. mrdeathjr28
    If you want can try x-edgers ppa them have lastest nvidia driver

    However between 331.xx and 340.xx appears huge improvements in fps performance in various games on wine (using wine 1.7.22 and upper)

  8. booman
    Hmm, I might
    Last time I tried, it didn't work and it messed up something on my system.

    Hello Booman:
    I just installed Enclave and I think Im having that gama problem.
    Did everything like the guide says except I used wine 2.21 (staging).
    All my computer video went too white (like a shade of white is over my whole screen). What should I do? I have last Nvidia Drivers for Mint (Nvidia 384). Mi video card is Nvidia GeForce GT 610 - 2GB. Its a cheap card I know but it should work with that video card.

    I never had a permanent fix for that gamma issue. When the game closes, I would go to my Nvidia driver manager and the gamma would immediately reset.
    That was my work-around
  11. Lorena
    ok so i will have to play the game with that brightness? Im restarting my compu to fix it.
  12. booman
    I don't remember if there is a gamma setting in game... you might want to check video options
  13. Lorena
    Nope there is no gama settings :(
  14. booman
    you may have to check a config file or search online
  15. Lorena
    I will do that later. I posted a new thread about another game in playonlinux forums. Can you check it please Booman?
  16. booman
    I responded
  17. Lorena
    thank you very much
  18. booman
    Did you find anything about the gamma problem?
