To: Blizzard Inc.
We the undersigned would like to see native Linux installers for the products of Blizzard Inc. It is only fair that Blizzard's products designed for both Windows and Mac should be made compatible with Linux as well, especially due to the popularity of Blizzard's released products (StarCraft, WarCraft, WoW, etc.) and their upcoming releases (StarCraft 2).
The computer world is about choices now. Not everyone wants to be stuck with a Windows or a Mac. Some people use Linux, BSD, and other OS types. Read more...

WINE and the CD Drive...
I have run the install program for Starcraft with no problems but when i try to run the game itself it comes up with an error about how it can't find the CD. I tried installing Diablo 2 and i got pretty much the same error only it wouldn't even let me install it. Any ideas? I think maybe WINE isn't configured correctly.

Linux Gaming Newbie.
So I love my new Mac and I hate My old M$ Win98 PC. Fair enough. Now OSX has spoiled me and I want to play my collection of PC games on a box that's as stable, secure, and preferably as easy to use as OSX. Buying the Mac versions isn't an option. I'm looking at getting Linux and Wine to run my games on but I haven't had much experience with Linux and I don't know what distro to go with. I tried Mandrake about 2 years ago and hated it. It was ugly and the UI was convoluted and confusing. SuSE looks awesome from screenshots and the reviews of XandrOS seem very favorable but I'm still undecided. As far as I can tell there's no free download for either one.

Should I drop some $ on an OS I haven't tried? Waddya think?

Also, some of the newer games I have apparently won't work in wine for one reason or another (mostly M$ games such as Halo). How long does it usually take for wine to fix these compatibility problems?

Any suggestions?

Unreal Tournament 2003 has gone gold!

Particularly nice to see this bit:

"Linux Support

The Linux installer is included on Disc 3 of the 3 CD set! We support both client and server for Linux. Unfortunately there's no mention of Linux on the box because we didn't know it would be done in time so please tell all your Linux gaming friends that UT2003 is ready for them!"

anyone here know of a place to get creatures 3 for linux? I have been reading about creatures 3 addons for linux so there must be one...also, I know that wine is open source and obviously linux is so does anyone know if there is a place to download the gaming linux pack or whatever, the one from mandrake....thanks

UPDATE: nevermind, a website says that wine does it fine.

Nothing has been posted recently; I got behind because of college forms and getting everything set up for my College Adventure (TM) this fall. I apologize.

So ... how is everyone?

Tribes 2
It seems that a patch is out to run tribes 2 on a linux box. I am going to set my server up this weekend. I hope you do not need x. I am hoping to host a privete server for me and friends.

Anyone seen improved performance running the <a href="ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/" target='_new">new 2.4.3 kernel</a>? Or is it just a stability/driver issue for most of you? *recompiling*

Multiplayer servers ...
I originally set up this community to give rise to some general discussion about Linux gaming ... but I think that it might also be neat to start a sort of dedicated Linux multiplayer server for those of us here. I've got the server but not the bandwidth (at the moment ... hearing back from colleges this week!). Does anyone know of something already in existence for this, or have other ideas?
2:37 pm
Black & White is out ... and it looks incredible. I set up my Win2k partition again just so I'd be able to play it ... does anyone know if there's a port for B&W in the works?

Heh, a mod between Linux gurus and Microsoft would make an interesting adaptation of Black & White ;-P

It seems that Loki has released a Linux server for use with the win32 version of Tribes 2. I found it on Bluesnews So as soon as I have game in hand I will be outing up a cmall server on my debian box at home! To bad I will have to play on my win2k box ( For now ). I have also talked to my boss here at Solutions Technology and he said he would think about letting me put up a full server at the office!

Links to go!
Okay, let establish some links!

Linux Games - One of the best site to visit :)

Happy Penguin! - Any games small or big :)

Here a treat Linux Half Life - Currently only Counterstrike can work. However, I manage to get the original game running the practise course. The full game I am not sure. The front page may be dead however the forums are alive and kicking.

Games Company
Only one.... Loki games - Possibly the only game company that converts good games :)

Any more? Post them!

Windows games on Linux
Slashdot ran an interesting article about running Windows games on Linux.

Check it out: http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=01/03/24/1838252&mode=thread

System specs
It was requested that I post my system specs for viewing, and so I thought I'd do so and ask everyone else for their configs too ... what hardware have you found works well for you, and what are you looking for in your Linux-based gaming rig?

Intel Pentium III 550 MHz
512 MB PC100 SDRAM
Dual 45 GB ATA/66 hard drives with two 8.2 GB data backup removable hard drives
nVidia GeForce 256 w/ 32 MB RAM
3Com 905B 10/100 NIC
Diamond Monster Sound MX300 (Aureal Vortex 2-based)
Cambridge SoundWorks speaker system
Hitachi SuperScan Pro CM500
Microsoft Intellieye Explorer USB mouse
Toshiba 4x DVD-ROM
Teac 8x/8x/32x CD-RW
Teac 42x CD-ROM
Iomega Zip (parallel port version)

... this is my terminal node on a Beowulf cluster with another 550 MHz P3, two 400 MHz AMD K6-2 400s, and a Pentium 200 MMX, for a total combined proc power of 2.1 GHz and 1152 MB of RAM. Not much good for most programs, but it rocks when you can use a distributed node program ;-)
