Hi everybody!

Some time ago I made this private group for Mac and Linux steamplay games, which has been more or less dead lately. I don't have any resource (time) to put into this right now (and for the foreseeable future), so I made it public. Everybody is invited to enter, not just Mac and Linux gamers, but also PC gamers willing to interact and maybe gift steamplay games.

You may notice that by a great measure most steamplay games are bundle games, with what it implies (high availability and no CV). It would be nice if some giveaway is created every now and then, even if cheap. Sorry but I won't manually invite all the ones that requested an invite on this thread. If you're still interested, just check in. Last but not least, I'll let this group just derive, but in case anybody is interested to be promoted to mod and stimulate some activity, just let me know.

I use both Mac and Windows for gaming (game on Mac when possible, but have a Windows laptop, and soon will be setting up Parallels Desktop and a fresh hard drive for Windows on my Mac). Do I still count?

I hate the bad rep Mac gaming gets, so this group got my attention (otherwise about all of my spare time is eaten up by my own group).

Can i join? i have Win7 and Ubuntu on my pc :)

Well I have w7, debian and XP on my machine, but I see no point of using steam on linux - considering that you basically emulate it with wine.

SilenR

(2 years ago)

not sure linux steam just does wine, at least valve games are going to be native, and i'd say more to come will be as well

still i see (almost) no point when you have an xp box hanging around

Hahaha I have Mac too, sometimes let my brother play my Windows games until I buy Windows too, but Windows sucks for all, that's the problem, only excluding gaming, but I think this will change in future too XD =D http://i.imgur.com/Mn7Ks.jpg or another without the Dock http://i.imgur.com/FoHIT.jpg

Yeah Windows sucks, suuuurree 81.92% of the world is just fucking crazy using it...

No, wait, you might actually be right. Go on.

Step by step Apple PCs are descending in price and more game were released on Mac and more compatibilities that weren't some years ago, I have Mac since 2008-2009, and still working good, any normal not ultra good Windows by this date would be half broken =S, and I hear from friends of my father friend that they have Mac with 9. version this is old do not know if older than Windows XP or not, think not, and they still work fine an price of one used is still good XD. In the newest overpowered Mac towers you can have Windows installed paralelly and it will be a really good one with 8-32 Gb Ram, only have to see the Video Card, but normally Macs have ATI, but this ones are the newest and really expensive, normally a normal person never will buy it =D Like this ones xd: http://www.apple.com/macpro/

i'd like to join -- can't wait for steam on linux! (i am not in the beta yet). i don't have a mac but i dual boot windows and ubuntu and played penumbra overture in ubuntu.

blackus (2 years ago*)

I'd like to join as well. I'm not in the steam linux beta, but maybe this screenshot (which I now deleted) of Steam running in wine will make you happy as well :)

please join! how is it to run steam in wine? i never used wine but i made up my mind it's not straightforward...

andreadandrea

(2 years ago)

I installed steam using Wine on Ubuntu. It was actually not that big a pain as I thought it would be. I'm having trouble installing my graphics card in Ubuntu so I never really got to test the gaming part of it though :-(

brianmortensen

(2 years ago)

i guess that steam running in wine does not mean the games automagically run in wine too, you'll have to make a container for each and every game, won't you?

andreadandrea

(2 years ago)

Unfortunately I can assert that's correct, worse still, steam itself isn't even half as responsive as native applications (at least in my experience) :(

1Swatty

(2 years ago)

I never got that far... I lost my patience :-(

brianmortensen

(2 years ago)

Well... steam runes quite well, I didn't have any luck with any games though :( I use the open source AMD drivers and I never had much luck with them in combination with wine.

Hi Andrea. Can I join? :-) I have my little white Macbook (the last of the Macbook series before it was discontinued) which I play on when I'm not at my main PC. I also plan to get a second SSD for a dual boot on my main PC to try out Steam on Ubuntu.

why don't you share with us a pic of it? i've been discovering that it's entertaining to see what others decide to post :)

for sure that white mb is very nice and has a good value imho, the nvidia gpu should let you play most indies...

andreadandrea

(2 years ago)

Cool. Here is my Little Macintosh

It's great for Indie games but I can also play Source games on it like Portal 2 and L4D2 as well as others like Assassin's Creed II and GTA III series games. :-)
