Yeah, it was WoW that needed the mount with the unhide parameter. QW was an
easy install though I didn't get into playing it.
I don't have QW installed anymore. I might try it once more, but I didn't
really like it. I preferred Quake and Quake 2 to Q3Arena; Q4 was alright. And
I preferred RTCW to Enemy Territory. QW was too much like ET and not enough
like classic quake for my taste. I prefer the big map adventure shooters to
the small map arena types.
The same goes for the Unreal games. I liked the original Unreal better than
any of the UT games. Likewise for Half Life and Half Life 2 vs.
Thief and Thief 2 both work well with wine (delete the movies files first)...
I'm really looking forward to 'The Dark Mod'
