Games without native Support - POL?
I want to install games that are not supported native on Steam for Linux. Whats happening now with this games?
I suggest, that there should be implemented a PlayOnLinux-Support or something like that, but only for games that are not supported native.
Is something like this planned in the future?

I double this. At least the possibility to just download data would be nice. The example of usage is Morrowind - to run OpenMW you need morrowind.esm from your copy.

It would be more convenient, yes, but I don't want to see this as a feature.

Why? Well, if Steam officially supports Wine then developers using Steam have far less incentive to create native Linux versions of their games. This is bad for obvious reasons.

If you want to use Steam in Wine, use Steam in Wine.

I use this at this time for L4D2.
Netist, i think you're right. But a lot of games are not playable, like GTA 4(Yes, it doesn't run because SecurROM).

Please no Wine in Steam for Linux. If anyhing Wine is what holds native ports back. Be glad that we finally have a working native client and can install native games. More will come. And if you want to play something through wine just install a PoL bottle in the meantime. I'd rather have everything clean.

Agreed, no wine!

No wine please! If I want wine in Steam, I can allready use Steam in wine. I want native Linux versions of my games.

Probably not worth worrying about it, whichever side of the fence you're on. If Valve were interested in developing wine-based solutions to things, we'd be using a wine-wrapped Steam client and TF2 right now, which we're not. Also note that if they had been interested in doing something like that, Mac users would have seen it for some time now as well.

Now, of course, there's nothing stopping the game developers themselves from releasing a wine-wrapped game, of course, but that's outside Valve's control.

I also agree with everyone else that wine needs to be left out of Steam. Although wine is good in allowing Linux gamers to play games that don't have a native Linux port, it is also a huge negative because it gives game developers a reason not to make a native port of their game.

That's not the purpose of Steam. Steam is a content delivery system, it doesn't want to help you run Playonlinux scripts, all it wants to do is download your (Steam purchased) games and let you run them. Usually, you would use Playonlinux to run Playonlinux scripts.

+1 for no wine support

keep wine out of steam. We already know the tricks. We are here for native games.

Wine needs to stay the hell out of this one.

I really don't want to see WINE used in Steam.
