Not me Ben, I LOVE RPG's. I actually get sick from the first person shooters, so I look for RPG's if I am lookin for games.



Go linux go!

Cool

*breathe in, breathe out*

Oh my...

Have to calm down. Wow, NWN, is coming native to Linux. I could cry!

Though, saying as I've already bought the version for windows, will I have to buy it again for Linux? I would if I had to, but would rather not...

Probably not, it seems that most of the time there is a patch of some sort for those who have purchased the windoze version(s).

Cool

NWN *GNU*/Linux client is jsut a drop in. you WILL need the win32 version because most of the files are the same.

I talked to a developer there, I asked why we they don't ship a seperate gnu/linux version and he replied; "We Would love to but it's not up to us, Our publisher is pretty much in charge of all of that".

so, if true, we're going to have to get up on these publishers and nag em hepefully posting the link in the first msg of the thread gave them some extra hits to understand there is a demand

You will also be able to buy a "Linux version" from Tux games, so
if you haven't bought the 'doze version, you can get that with the
Linux patches on the same disk. . . http://www.tuxgames.com
I am rather disappointed in how long it's taken to get the linux code
out, but I'll probably still buy it once it's available. . .
