First of all, I’m using a GNU/Linux distribution and I’m playing HM:RC (Steam version) through Wine (development branch). I know it is an unsupported system so I do not expect to have a proper support. However I see that the developers are friendly here, so I would like to humbly ask my question anyway. Maybe it could be of interest also for someone else…
I would like to know if it is possible to launch one of the games of the HW:RC without using the launcher.
In this thread, under the “Launcher Crashing” section, there are instruction on how to that. I tried to launch both the classic versions and the remastered ones as suggested but, no matter how, the games do not directly start. Instead, Steam starts in the background and then the HM:RC launcher appears, and using it I can launch one of the games.
I read some posts in the Steam and Wine communities about other linux users that were able to launch the games as indicated above, but their notes were prior to the 2.0 patch. I wonder if the behavior of the HW:RC launcher is different now.
My apologies if the topic was already discussed and I didn’t find it yet. Thank you!
