Team Factor News

March 29th, 2002 by keerf

Some more news from Holarse about Team Factor, this is a msg from 7FX:

thanks for the info. Looks like I created a new flame war on that forum. Yes I remember your first mail.* I think we’re a company and we should take care of porting our products by ourselves or through regular business contracts. Anyway, there’s no technical problem in getting TF run under linux. It’s just a matter of time. I can do it by myself and I’ll do it. If TF sells well or totally fails, either way, I’ll have plenty of time.

Jedi Knight II On Linux

March 28th, 2002 by michael

God (yes, really) wrote in to let us know that he has successfully run Jedi Knight II: Outcast using Wine from Transgaming CVS.

[It] ran very smooth and fast in linux using Wine.I ran it for half an hour in 1280×1024@32bit fullscreen (had to changemy desktop depth to 16 bit for that) and it ran very fine (between 20-40fps).

God was using NVIDIA drivers version 2802 and Wine version 20011226 from CVS.

Dan Olson, you may now post the requisite “Wine is bad” comment.
