Run game on Linux or Unix
« on: August 03, 2008, 10:08:16 AM »

I've created a WME game on Windows Vista.
Now, I want to play it in other computers, running on Linux or Unix. I don't know much about this systems, but I've read it's possible.
Can someone give me a step-by-step explanation on how to run a WME game in one of these OS?
Thanks

Well, don't you care about this thread.
The main goal was to run my game on the Wii using the homebrew Linux or Unix, but I've read a bit more about them, and since they currently support very few RAM and they didn't support the WiiMote, it's usless for me. Maybe later, with new and more powerful versions of the Linux for Wii...

It's not about caring or not caring. But most people in this forum don't use wme on linux so often. I, for example, can't give you a "step by step explanation" but I know that 2D wme games (not 2.5D ones) run fine in wine. And I know nothing about linux on wii.

I don't think he was implying that we don't care about the thread, I think he was saying that we should ignore the thread because he answered his own question.

That's right, maybe I didn't express it very well (my english isn't as good as I'd wish), but that's the idea.
Thanks anyway

You can use windows emulators programs such as "Wine" or "PlayOnLinux" for running yur games under linux/unix OSs.

2,5D-games work good under Linux. But they need some dlls for it.
