Is your linux mint up to date? I assume they will probably fix it soon, so you'll have to wait.

 

But you should be able to play just fine even with software renderer, the performance is pretty good if your hardware isn't too old.

No, I didn’t tell them. What should I do?

Nothing! Just play the game, it should be working fine :)

If you want to report the problem to any of the devs of linux mint then tell them that opengl isn't working with wine (It fails to create a opengl context, can't even query the opengl version)

If I change the linux distribution the problem will disappear?

Yeah, very highly likely. This is not the first time this issue occurred with linux mint, but i never heard about something like this happening with any other distro yet

2 more questions.

1) What Linux distributions do you recommend?

2) What Linux distributions do you use?

      on the CncNet5 (RA, TS, TD version) there is usually a flashing green button that says "streaming" whenever someone is live on twitch but it doesn't show anymore. When shall this be fixed.

      I want to edit the vehicle and building graphics. Where do I find the original graphics and where do I have to place the edited ones in cnc to replace the original?

      I was just wondering but is this an issue that is on the team's radar?
       
      If you take my name Bane_ for example on this month's RA ladder, there is a total mix of average fps for my games (as low as 43 fps even...). By way of comparison, if I'm playing normally on CnCNet I can quite happily be in 8 player games with it running at full speed without any issues at all. Multiple other people suffer from the same issue if you go checking through the names so I'm not sure what's up really.
       
      It isn't lag but when a game decides it's going to average more around say 40-50 fps, you experience it as a periodic hitching all the way through the match (right from the word go so it doesn't worsen as more and more units and structures are built) and it leads to a pretty unpleasant game as it messes around with your build timings and Q and so on in what should be a fast-paced game.
       
      Is there any obvious culprit that could be causing dropped frames like that? Restarts don't seem to help, neither does running the quickmatch client directly with CnCNet closed and as few other programs open as possible.
