just wanted to drop by and tell you that with NewDark Thief Gold, Thief 2 and System Shock 2 work very well on linux (including videos and eax with 5.1 sound), but i cant really tell you about the installation as i just copied the fully patched games over from my old pc. I'm playing on Kubuntu 12.10 x64 with wine 1.5.15, no winetricks or anything else needed. only problem seems that the games have some issues with brightness. when its dark in a corner, well its pitch black :D you have to use a higher brightness level than on windows. http://www.abload.de/img/systemshock2darkm6rvt.png
thats with the brightness slider in the middle, in windows i even had to set is low to get it dark enough.
edit: nevermind, fixed that.
