alpha centauri binaries


Hey, I was wondering if there existed any alpha centauri binaries for linux. I've discovered that binaries exist for quake, but we all know alpha centauri is so much better than quake.

Alpha Centuri was released as a straight port through Loki. Finding copies of the game will be very hard. No downloadable binaries exist to port a Win version of the game to Linux. Unfortunately only a handful of the Loki ports had downloadable binaries that you could use to make the Win version a Linux version. I have SimCity 3000 for Linux, and again, it is specifically not enabled with donwloadable binaries. You have to have the Linux port version to get it running natively in Linux.
