RE: A Slight Fix for Intel GMA X4500
This is a guide for playing amnesia the dark decent on intel gma 4500 graphics
card and for them who are not very much familiar with linux and don't want complexcity.
It will be better if you have a linux version of this game.But not necessary.
[no need to go for complex steps compile and install mesa graphics drivers]
step 1: Get Fedora-16-i686-Live-KDE.iso[you can try other versions but i tested on this one]
Burn the image to cd or make bootable pendrive.
step 2: Boot from cd or pendrive. Install fedora to Hard Disk.
[Or u can continue on live desktop,it works]
Install libtxc_dxtn-1.0.0-1.fc15.i686.rpm[one single or double mouse click will do it]
step 3: [SKIP THIS STEP IF YOU DON'T HAVE LINUX VERSION OF AMNESIA]
Open "konsole" on kde desktop.
Type sh "/full_path..../amnesia_tdd.sh"[or just drag and drop the installation package file on "konsole"]
press enter....wait for installation window.....
Play from start menu->games->amnesia shortcut.
STEP 4: [TRY THIS FOR WINDOWS VERSION OF THE GAME.NEED INTERNET CONNECTION]
Open "konsole" on kde live desktop.
type sudo bash[press enter]
type yum install wine[press enter][WINE is a emulator which can emulate windows programs]
Now goto the folder where amnesia setup files are.Right click setup.exe choose 'open with WINE' option....
Play from shortcut.OR right click launcher.exe choose 'open with WINE' option from game installation folder.
NOTE: using WINE may cause some laggs or bugs,may be slow fps.Try WINE at you own risks.I recommend not to play games like amnesia with WINE.
Tested on my laptop.
