i found a link to the news post at:
http://linux-gamers.net
if you dont like winex, thisll be good for you. if you do, well, consider this an incomplete (but being worked hard on) alternative.

Football, basketball, or hockey would be great. I'd really like to see NCAA 2004, but if they're not making a windows version I doubt they'd ever make a linux version.

I was looking up stuff on WineX and I read something about how TransGaming doesn't recontribute code back to Wine like they agreed to. Is this true? If it is I'd rather not pay a new M$ to take over ;-) My hatred for greedy software developers is the whole reason I have Linux (That and it bugs me for some reason that my brand new $1200 comp crashed every day)

that is true. at least, i can believe it. you found that at timedoctor, didnt you? still, wine is already providing a semi-complete replacement to winex.

I tried running BF1942 on Wine but it wouldn't install. I think it was at timedoctor. Unless there is another way I can run it on Linux I'll just use my XP install (Since I, eh-hem.....already "paid" for it like everybody on the planet would, and no one of course would ever dream of pirating it )

winex
vmware (thatll suck even worse)

I'm a fan of all blizzard games including
Warcraft III
Starcraft
Daiblo II Expansion- even though it is a little old
and any futher products from them

Also it would be awsome to see counter-strike V1.6 and Condition zero that it is now out

if i could get these for linux why the hell would anyone use windows anymore.

Cunter-Strike1.6 can be played under wine

google groups

Thing is, it's not straight forward and support may last forever. I decided to try creating a minimal win98/win2k install just for playing this. I don't want to get used to playing on Steam only to find it later no longer works at a later date.

I love BF1942. But I am sure they do some bizarre things in Windows to get it work the way it does. Who knows maybe someday it will run under Linux. After all they have Linux servers running already.
