This wiki page is about games that run well on the Acer Aspire One - and tweaks to make them better.



realistic team oriented multiplayer FPS based on the Cube engine

  • runs with little slowdown out of pacman
  • Tweaks:
    • not yet added

Counter-Strike 2D

2D clone (+further features) of the popular Counter-Strike Mod

  • runs without any troubles out of aur

Urban Terror 4.1

modern multiplayer FPS based on the ioquake3 engine

  • runs decently when most graphics-related options are low, but still looks great even with low-quality settings
  • available from AUR


fast multiplayer shooter based on the quake3-engine

  • runs ok, you just have to adjust some graphic settings
    • my graphic settings (you can experiment with that):
Video Mode: 1024x600 
Lighting: Vertex (Low)
Flares: Off
Bloom: Off
Geometric Detail: Medium
Texture Detail: 60%
Anisotropy: Off

Simple Items: Off
Always show weapons: Off
Marks on Walls ... High Quality Sky: On
Sync Every Frame: Off


a fast-paced 2D multiplayer shooter

  • runs perfectly, out of pacman


slow-paced strategy like "the Settlers 2"

  • runs perfectly, out of the box from aur installation



Mega Drive / Genesis emulator

  • runs perfectly, install from aur or archlinuxfr-repo
    • activate OpenGL, set video resolution per custom to 1024x600 for streched full-screen or 800x600 for non-streched
    • use "Normal" renderer, I couldn't find a visible advantage with the other ones


Nintendo 64 emulator

  • most games are running with little slowdown (NTSC games have about 56fps instead of 60fps)
  • Tweaks:
    • disable "frame skipping" to avoid flickering in games


Virtual machine for old school adventures

  • runs perfectly, just install from extra repo


Game Boy (Advance) emulator

  • runs perfectly with vbaexpress (available in aur). visualboyadvance is available in the community repository


Super Nintendo emulator

  • all tested games work perfect
    • set video mode to "640x480 ODS F" for using full screen (but streched) or "800x600 ODS F" for using max height (non-streched)
    • video filters: bilinear filter and hq filter activated here working fine, but that's your choice


World of Warcraft


  • runs with very low fps, but only on aspire one with at least 1gig of ram
  • Tweaks:
    • not yet added

Diablo 2 + LOD

Hack'n Slay

  • runs perfectly without any additional tweaking

Warcraft 3 / Frozen Throne


  • little laggy, but playable (at least singleplayer)
  • Tweaks:
    • start it with:
  wine "Frozen Throne.exe" -opengl
  wine "Warcraft III.exe" -opengl
