We don't have an exact date for it, there were bugs that we didn't have the resources to test properly.

If you're interested, we *could* give you the linux client and see if you help diagnose the problems with it?

I could help test it, but I only have slow-as-hell software OpenGL in Linux right now as I haven't bothered to recompile my kernel for the open source ati graphics drivers (the binary ones supported about every other card but mine last time I tried :P)

I did try running the windows version with WINE and it worked but it was very slow (probably because of the opengl thing) and froze when I tried to join a game to spectate after downloading data and objects which took several times longer than it should because of the lag on my end.

The java lobby app however works fine on linux, but with it being java I'm sure that's not a surprise.

I'll probably try with wine again and tell you how it works out in a few weeks time when I have time to fix my graphics card drivers properly.

also FYI: I run Gentoo Linux.

I'd be willing to volunteer to test the Linux client, although I imagine more complete testing will be possible once I subscribe (which at this point I'm planning on doing RSN).

Thanks for the offer. I haven't gotten around to dusting off the Linux build lately, but I have debian on one of my laptops now so I can do proper testing also when I do.

Heh ok, I'll try to get to it soon.

Just working on destructible world objects now (trees, buildings etc.) which is a precursor to working on camps.

I've just gotten it to run properly on linux with wine (using knoppix atm) and it 's running rather good, except for an occasional crash that seems to occur when I tab out. But it seems to be playable and stuff..

No, Jim, it is not officially released.
Sam put it aside, and no one can access it.

What's wrong with using a Java VM that runs under Linux instead of trying to run it through WINE?

My Wine-Fu is not strong; so you don't use the Java piece to launch but only to patch? When you run it in Wine, you run the exe directly?

Yes I run the exe directly. Also if you patch it in linux and want to run it under wine you need to get the latest game .exe manually because the Java lobby doesn't download it, maybe it detects the OS and tries to get the (currently nonexistant) linux executable.

Sorry for resurrecting the thread, but I'm not having much luck with wine. Anyone using it feel like posting a little howto?

For reference, I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy GIbbon and have a complete working WinXP install to borrow files from.

since I'm only running a debian Lenny (no windows at home) I also would be interested in testing it.

I'll get around to this again soon! I had a laptop all set up with Debian to test this myself, and then its hard-drive when belly up :mad:

I just tried running it in wine...
Downloaded the windows java installer and installed java with wine.
After that i downloaded the dark wind installer and installed it with wine.

Without any special configuration (standard debian lenny) i started darkwindLobby.exe with wine and the game seems to work.

It is running fluently on an athlon 1800 XP with 1024 MB ram and a geforce ti 4200 (128MB)

only problems i have are minor:

when started the screen "drops" everything out of the window (see screenshots)

buttons forums, instructions, gang, event diary and so on (i guess the buttons that open a browser window) don't work. Even after installing firefox and explorer 6 in wine.
