Point2Play and winex

I have found a link for the commercial transgaming version of winex.Here it is:

Do not subscribe,this is all you need (except point2play)

Could anyone give me the link for point2play?

Most games work better when played using point2play

I don't think it's legal. As far as I know, winex3 is only freely available from CVS and you've to compile it too. That versions has no support and as far as I know, it also does not include point2play.

I cannot understand piracy with programs like that. It cost about 5 dollars (read a big mac here) to get the winex, but even so, the creators are nice enough to let it be a free version, but peoples still want to steal it in some sort of way. What pity.

rajkosto, point2play would be useless for you, because you need to have a valid login to use it. Do not warez. Almost everything in Linux is free (including WineX3), if you can't afford one, don't use it. Developers needs to eat and winex is nothing but a symbolical charge. I'm contacting winex homepage now so they can put down that cheap illegal distribution of winex...
