My framerates are not super... I am still on a laptop.... they are acceptable when running games in fullscreen and no screen capture though....

# sudo WTF is warframeIf that is a game, it will be a while before I can afford to add new games to my library. My system specs are covered elsewhere on this board in the appropriate area... This is not a race winner for gaming.... I am on a humble laptop.

response to spatry warframe is a free to play game that is probly one of the best many people have been able to get it to run we are just having trouble figuring out what is causing various issues such as bad framerates even on it's lowest settings theres at least a dozen or so people trying to get it to run the issue is they don't have the knowledge of working with wine that you do so they get all lazy about getting it to run

Welcome back Spatry, my YouTube feed has been a little quiet and subdued for the last several months.

Does anyone know if an XBOX 360 controller will work with Skyrim installed this way?

in recent events people use LOOT which is a step ahead, but you can pretty much avoid all that trouble if you install manually and then run BOSS
latest version of BOSS can be found on Github.

it support GUI or CLI, which sorts mods automatically without pain and VM usage and etc.

Enjoy :D

It was my understanding that BOSS was being depreciated as far as Skyrim, New Vegas, and Fallout 3 support.

In fact...

Quote from: BOSS
Using mods for Skyrim, Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas? Use You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login instead, as BOSS's support for those games is relatively poor and no longer maintained. Oblivion users can also use LOOT, but may find that BOSS performs better, depending on the mods they use.

On a side-note I wonder if I could run the Enderal total conversion mod via wine... I'll look into this when I'm back at my desktop.

Its not maintained but still an option though,

Loot still needs so many depedencies that VM is absolute requirement to allow  that to run 
whereas BOSS will run under wine perfectly both CLI and GUI works.

If All you need is some mod sorting without adding many great mods on top of skyrim then BOSS will do it :D

There is one thing that i noticed while installing skyrim on antergos via wine that i needed to have a sound driver in order to run the game. I worked with wine config as well as installing several components via playonlinux.

Skyrim SKSE WITH PROTON SUPPORT!
« Reply #12 on: September 09, 2018, 09:33:37 PM »
You can now use SKSE with Proton and HERE IS HOW...
1. Install Skyrim Legendary Edition (Not tested with SE)
2. Run the game ONCE! Set your display how you want it...
3. Mod your game following the tutorial video... Use Loot in virtualbox to set your load order then Generate FNIS for users
4. navigate to your /tmp folder and copy proton_run to a place of your choosing.
5. Edit line 5 of the shell script so that it points to your skse loader
Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
DEF_CMD=("/Path/To/YOUR/skse_loader.exe")6. SAVE the shell script, rename it to whatever you want and execute it whenever you wish to run Skyrim with all of your mods.... I have been playing the game for a few hours now... there is a random crash from time to time but the game performance is very good. I am extremely pleased with this! HAVE FUN!

There must be some way to get FNIS to work using Proton directly. Adding it in Mod Organizer doesn't do the trick and neither does the proton_run shell script.
Do you have some pointers to try to get it working without having to use PlayOnLinux?

THERE IS! You need to get a copy of scrrun.dll from a Windows 7 installation
Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
c:\windows\system32\scrrun.dlland copy that to your proton prefix in the /windows/system32 folder. It will overwrite the existing dll. Once that is done FNIS will work as expected in WINE. If you do not have access to a windows installation to copy it from you can obtain it legally by searching google for "Windows 7 virtual appliance". Microsoft offers FREE virtual machines and you can copy the file that way...

I do not use mod organizer for mod management... instead, I MANUALLY manage them in my Data directory. I only use mod organizer to extract mods with "fomod" preferences. I edited a SPECIAL proton_run script for running FNIS.
