    I really wish LGP would broaden their product offerings to include some action games…

    I’m curious.. Will they provide product updates to the Loki version, at what cost and to what point? (eg, what do the product updates supply).

    Cognitoy is still selling the Loki version on their website, so one would assume, that it will still work, not to mention the fact that LGP’s email says they will UPDATE to the current version of 1.07………..

    Oh, and because its needed… WineX licks balls. Long live elf.

    A bunch of us had volunteered to do all the patches to get it up to speed with the windows version for free several months back. They wrote back and said that they would love for us to do that, and once the code was in shape, they would get back to us. We would get updates every once and a while up until about a month ago. Yeah Mindrover. Can’t wait to see the 1.08 patch and the RCX Patch on Linux.

    Now this was an unexpected but pleasant surprise! :)

    Seems that I will soon be able to get one of my favorite games up to date..

    I’ll recommend this one to my friend. Maybe he wants to buy it :)

    I actually bought the Windows version for $10 US, cause I couldn’t find the Linux one anywhere :( . Got it the same week I bought leftover copies of Descent3 and Heavy Gear II (both from Loki)from a local EB store back in January. And, no I don’t run it under WINE or WineX, thanks.
