I usually play on Linux, and I have been wanting to play CW and CW2 there. But considering my Linux program is being weird, it does not accept apps for download, so I have to get it on Steam. It's getting tiring playing CW3 only.


CW1 and CW2 are not Linux-compatible.

Could he at least change it in some way to make it compatible?

Thanks for letting me know, but I can't install anything. The program I'm currently using is weird, and won't download apps as they're supposed to. Instead it gives me the Archive Manager.



Is there any particular reason you don't/can't use WINE?

The Linux version of AIR is very old (the CW2 version it supports doesn't have custom map support) and, at least in my experience, CW1 on Linux AIR is unplayable due to graphical glitches. However, my experience playing them through WINE was basically flawless once I got it actually working.
Pretty sure I'm supposed to be banned, someone might want to get on that.

Like I said before, I can't download anything. For some reason, Wine wasn't pre-installed with the distro I have.
