Installing and playing windows games

I tried to install street outlaws 2 winner takes all, i can get wine to install and run it but it wont load, it crashes. I tried to use playonlinux but i had the same outcome. i think i'm doing something wrong. game opens and says fatal error after about 10 seconds.

any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Did you try using lutris to run this game? or another way is maybe try adding it to steam as a non-steam game and in properties there is a section called compatibility, and you can force it to use different versions of proton. I personally haven't used playonlinux(besides that everytime I tried it I was faced with it never working to do what I wanted it to do) in years, lutris or steam are how I get most games to work that aren't native or aren't steam games to begin with. Also what platform did you get this game from?

There is no report yet in for that game. We cannot verify if that game is supported under Proton.


Also, I would like to point out they want more graphics card and ram than your system currently has, so you may not get a good experience with it even if you do get it to run at all.


Yeah gaming on a laptop is a bad experience in the first place but that games requirements are pretty high. The APU in your machine is maybe equiv of a GTX 1030 or 1050. (Given the system specs list only nVidia cards for reference.)


i didnt even look at specs thinking a game like this was not high mistake i overlooked this..ill delete the thread.

As a last note also remember your using an APU i.e. your system memory is also your VRAM. The game doesn't even say WHICH 1060 (maybe it means the 3Gb model maybe the 6Gb. The core is the game will probably nuke all your memory post haste and that's probably what gave the sudden crashes and probably started a bit of swapping for the system processing once the GPU was like MY MEMORY!


i plan to get 32 gb of ram for this sometime soon, i would assume my pagefile would have filled and sufficed but my logs say the game only used a little over a gb of ram before it crashed,,,

Well that's promising. IF/when you get that extra RAM (if you haven't refunded the game) you can try again. I might need all the settings on low but it might be OK. Plus Proton is always being updated for this stuff. Which is also to say don't use Lutris and POL if the game "comes" with Proton, proton will work best (if at all). I mean your CPU is up to snuff for sure. It's the APU that's kinda meh.

It's kinda sad how a lot of the current APU's are only like Vega 64 level. Like hell yeah it will run a mean spreadsheet but jeeze...pretty lack luster. Don't get me wrong, the nVidia mobile models are hella weak and missleading too but lordy.

For example I just built my roommate a machine with a Ryzen 5700G. The APU is as I said basically 1030/1050 level so it can't even match or replace her OLD GPU from like 7 years ago! So basically APU runs side screens old GPU runs main gaming screen.

AMD will never release Aerith APU until the Steam Deck is officially everywhere. As basically when that APU is in the DiY market, everyone can make their own HackinDeck, as SteamOS 3.0 will also be publicly released. That in itself will cannibalize the sales of the Steam Deck.

Aerith is the code-name for the AMD APU with built-in RDNA-2 graphics.

Unless the APU comes with eDRAM or HBM the performance will always be lackluster because of the inadequate memory performance.
Making that worthwhile means having a rather large chip, which means quite a lot of power for the GPU portion which'd leave the CPU portion weak whilst still pumping out a substantial amount of heat.

APUs should remain a budget gaming option but primarily "accelerating" the CPU for compute and simply providing video decode/encode/output.

Like I said, it runs a mean spreadsheet :wink:

I know it's "marketing" but it's painful seeing "gaming" laptops. That's like saying I have a fridge stove! Which is also "gaming" slapped on the name or model or not gaming on any laptop is a bad time.

The performance of the gpu in this apu is equivalent to a 4850 with a new feature set. running most modern games on medium or low 1080 should be a viable option. but i do need to get more memory .

4850 is what 12 years old heh. I have a 4750 which was the worlds fastest when it came out. While the APU will support modern shaders and DX it's really just not up to most modern games. Indie games maybe but full on Triple A 3D games you're gunna have a bad time.

Like this "marketing" (read LIES).


It's a bottom feeder GPU from 2010 being sold in a "gaming" machine in 2021

Yeah like how the RTX3060 (Q not Q) is more like a GTX1050 with ray tracing you can't use because it's a 1050 :wink: But yeah that's kinda how I feel about all APU despite being a desktop build. CPU from 2021, GPU more like 1990.

This should be the least optimized game ever. Minimum 16 GB RAM. What is this flight simulator?

lol right? Pretty insane for a driving game.

Yeah I agree. My system isn’t even up to snuff with a gtx 970. I was just trying to help diagnose the OPs problem without spending $40 to test it my self. And noticed that high of requirements.

My machine would run it fairly easily but I wouldn't care. Those requirements are insane. Driving game is really EZ mode for so much. I mean a lot of objects can only be 2 sided drastically decreasing render, LOD and just everything involved. Predictable and limited draw distances and very minimal divergence from player view. I mean come on! Those devs are drunk! Those spec make Tarkov look like it would run on a gameboy.
