Please port popular MMORP games. Thanks
I tried many Linux distibutions back in 2000. The problem for me was not poor game support. The problem was getting hardware 3D to work.
Recently I decided to give Linux another try. I installed Linux and downloaded the driver for my Geforce from www.nvidia.com
The driver installed itself and compiled itself for my kernel version (omg that was so cool!). Then I added and removed few lines from the xorg.conf like the nVidia ReadMe.txt file suggested and I was set to go!!! This was soooo easy, I use to spend days trying to get hardware 3D to work with Linux back in the day! I tried everything back then and usually ended up braking xwindow and having to reinstall Linux.
Now getting 3D to work right is so much easier!!!! glxinfo tells me my 3D is finally working right, glxgears work no problem. Hardware support is working.... So this means I can throw WinXP out the window? Wrong...
Lineage 2 installs and updates, but crashes when lunching through http://www.transgaming.com
Cedega. NCsoft does not make a Linux client. Transgaming says that L2 will never run on Linux because of GameGuard. There is a L2 Linux client project, but it has not produced any files yet:
There is a well functioning Lineage 2 server software for Linux http://l2j.sourceforge.net
now we just need a client. Many people run their own private servers, so maybe GameGuard would not be a problem on those private servers.
Here are some sites that keep track of L2 private servers:
Before Lineage 2 I use to buy a new game every month. I played it for 1 month, beat it, put it away. I've played Lineage 2 for like two years now and will probably continue playing it. It would make sense to make a client for Linux (and MacOSX etc, etc) because people tend to play MMORPGs for years. It does not make sense to port games that people get sick of after playing for one month.
Anyway, that's my 2 cents
