    Phoronix: Wine Developers Working To Get 1997 Era "Nuclear Strike" Game Working On Linux In 2024

    While Wine (and downstreams like Valve's Proton) allow many newer Windows games and applications to run very well on modern Linux systems even when it comes to recent Direct3D 12 games and the like, sometimes it's the older games/apps that can be more of a headache to workaround bugs in the software and other aging relics. One of the latest issues leading to an upstream Linux kernel discussion is over the game Nuclear Strike first published in 1997 for Microsoft Windows 98 in trying to get it running with Wine on Linux...

      When you can't get stable ABI/API in Linux, you get Win32/Wine.

        Huh. I actually have that game. It's in the bin of hand-me-down discs that I didn't get around to trying out.

            When you can't play windows games on windows anymore you're playing them on Linux. Viruses like you winblows stable ABI very much.

              Its true. Much better to encapsulate all the old sh*t in one place.

              Microsoft's Win32/WoW64 does a similar thing but splurges it all over the place.

                    Same here. Used to play them with my Dad back when I was a kid. A couple years back I found Nuclear Strike for PSX for sale and used it as a stocking stuffer for him. We played it all of 3 minutes on the PS4 that day and I don't think he's played it since. For him, it didn't hold up as well as he remembered and all I could think was a PC could emulate it better.
