Shadowbane in Wine

February 21st, 2002 by Crusader

J sent in a link to thisinterviewat Shadowbane Warcry withthe developers of Shadowbane, a MMORPG currently in beta testing. Of noteis this exchange:

Nimrangul: Several users have asked, “Earlier in Shadowbane’s development Warden spoke of a possible Linux port, is this possible for after release? Or at all?”

Ashen Temper : It’s possible… but not currently on our plate. Who knows what will happen after release, though… Much of that depends on the demand for it. There was a huge demand from the Mac community (and obviously the PC one).

Vosx : Some people are running the Windows client on Linux in Beta. From all reports it works very well, it doesn’t even crash the OS when the client crashes, so it’s possible.

As it’s not explicitly stated, the method being used to run the Windows client is Wine.

    Great, now we’re finding professional game developers who don’t understand what a port is.
