Thanks, I'll try that... But I think I'll buy a ps2, which is linux compatible

Clive barker's Undying!

The best game plot ever. Maybe the graphics isn't much, but the gameplay more than fully compensates, and makes this game unforgettable.

I'll have to try to run it with wine someday

Kind Regards Bjerrk

It does with Transgaming's cedega, I think you would be able to get it working with the free CVS, but you'll need a No-CD patch, since the CVS version of Cedega does not have the copy protection code in it (AFAIK) as well as the InstallShield environment.

I'd have to go with Warcraft II, & Diablo II as my primary picks.
I also like a lot of the Sim-variations such as SIM-Theme Park, or Trailer Park Tycoon.
Redneck Rampage was always a fun one back in the Win95/98 days.
Actually any of the older DOS games would be great, since many of them will only half-way function on Win ME & XP. (Actually that was one of the initial drivers for my dislike of Windows.)

Have you tried wine and/or cedega? See if you can get those games to run with it.

Same here. I'm hoping that there'll be a Linux version, as there was for Quake III and Doom 3. Maybe since Raven are doing it, there won't be .

I bet there will - Quake 4's going to use the DOOM 3 engine, so porting it over shouldn't be too hard for them to do.

As far as I know there has already been confirmation on a Linux port of the game

**Though I can't find any information at www.ravensoft.com

I got World of Warcraft to work with cedega, so no more Windows for me ever. Even at work they let me use Suse on my laptop. I would still like to see Blizzard enter the Linux world. I think they had to have collaborated with Transgaming to some extent for the game to work so well under Cedega *pure speculation*. All their games should have native linux clients though. They have no reason to be worried about the support. All they have to do is look at websites like this one to see why. And as for people who say that no company has a reason to port their games to Linux, they're full of crap. I won't buy any game unless it is compatible with Linux (cedega/winex compatibility is acceptable but not preferred). Money is all that matters to a big company. If they see that there is a market for Linux users who are willing to pay, then they'll port the games. If they don't, then don't buy their games.
