Lutris scripts for retro games

QuoteYou choose Wine version only one time. Then it will be the default version for all games. The Lutris Wine versions are far advanced than the one you use on your system.

OK so which one to install? The names are not very clear.

QuoteWhy it is not a good point for you to use the Steam runtime?

Cause firstly I don't use Steam at all on my system, and I find it pretty dumb/pity to have to use Steam software to install a GOG game. It's like boring IMO.

Just install a Wine 4.x version. I could ask the script to install a Wine version. But this mean in several months the wine version will be totally obsolete.

Lutris use a part of the Steam runtime but not only this one: https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/Lutris-Runtime

"I find it pretty dumb/pity to have to use Steam software to install a GOG game"

On Linux, gamers and devs have to focus only on one objective: we want to play, have large catalog access and install the easy way possible, think "console", you click you play. Last years Valve helped to move towards this objective. Gog and Lutris helped too. But there are still a lot of work to do.

I installed the Wine 4.3 from Lutris.
Restarted the script, and same...

and what about Oddworld?
I just reinstalled Rayman Origins, it takes time to install, you should wait until he finishes. Right click, "configure", "runner", "wine version", it uses the wine version you recently installed?

No sorry, same for Oddworld.

Yeah it was the right wine version, 4.3. But when i launched the script this time, Lutris installed automatically an another version "protonified" but in the end it didn't work either.

I tried my scripts on two very different computer, they worked. Your Lutris install seems not correct. Did you use ntfs partition? Anyway I invit you to ask help on the official Lutris forum:
https://forums.lutris.net/

And if you want want to know more about Lutris Wine versions names:

I checked all the dependencies for Lutris, and it seems nothing is missing.
Have you tried on a Manjaro/Arch system?
I'm a bit disappointed though.
No I don't have any NTFS partition.

I think I will just uninstall it.

Cyril...

...
I'm using Ubuntu, I don't know how Lutris support is for arch distribution.
I'm really convinced you should report issue on Lutris github, this is how open source makes progress.

You're absolutely right.
I'll see then, but I really think the issue is not on the Lutris side.

updated: Star Wars - Episode 1 Racer - GOG: all graphics options at maximum, hiding graphics options ON, now X360 fully compatible with rumble ON. The intro cinematics have now audio on.

new: Beyond Good and Evil - GOG, it's a very nice game with some weird sound bugs. But I found workarounds, I played several hours, it's now stable.
Added true widescreen without stretched nor black bands, no audio desync or loop.
As the Gog Edition does not support natively gamepad, I joined to this game x360 Antimicro profile and another one for Steam Controller.

new: Heart of Darkness - CD
