Most probably not. They stated at an interview 9/9/2002, that: "There isn't much going for Darkfall being released on any other platforms, at least not until the PC-version is out. An Xbox-version is possible, but not planned. Mac- or Linux-version is out of the question."
I think I've read the same statement from other sources, but if this is the origin of that information, then I suppose a lot may have changed in 6,5 years. But I wouldn't keep my hopes up too high for a native linux gaming experience.. I'm guessing, we'll have to put our faith in wine or cedega or crossover..

I think the game was listed as one of the fails for 2008 in some mmorpg site, so I lost interest heh.

I don't care. If I can get it working I want to try it out my self before judging it. It sounds really cool.. If I would have had some skilled coders, funded by my government, at my disposal and could have created my dream come true game, the result would probably be very close to darkfall.

BTW. If you read my previous post in this thread I edited it with some more detailed information.

P.S. I'm just a bit curious? Is it really so that not a single linux nerd (windows dual-booters) has been elected to the beta testers group, is it just that these ppl have forgot to try and tweak the beta client to run on wine and to post their experiences for all to read? (Technically I suppose their not allowed to do that, but...)

I am community staff over in the Official Darkfall IRC channel on Stratics. (irc.stratics.com, #darkfall)

I am VERY excited about this game.... and also saddened to see intelligent people ignoring things because of something posted on mmorpg.com

No one can post experiences currently as it's still in closed beta and all testers are under an NDA, although it has been lifted for one tester, you can read the review here; http://beta.thenoobcomic.com/df_preview/intro.html

Feel free to pm me with any questions.

***EDIT***

The Darkfall NDA has been lifted. I have the client running in linux, albiet a little buggy, and using Crossover Games.

Had any luck through wine?

though the game seems to be intesting, i'm very hesitant to invest in a game that i can't run natively... why encourage developers to ignore my OS?

I have been able to download and install darkfall, but I get stuck at the character selection tab of the lobby. For some reason it does not detect my clicks on the new character option.

When I launch with full debug enabled I get spammed with all the function calls for the animation in the background. Can anyone point me to a tutorial for debugging apps in wine?

What version of wine did you install with? I can't even get the installer to run. I'm on Ubuntu 8.10.

I installed with the latest I believe 1.1.15 on xubuntu 8.04. I was able to solve my problem by overriding the dll as descriped here http://www.linuxfrag.net/.

I have gotten to the character creation screen, but the control overlay is missing so I have no way to proceed from there. I will continue to look into this and update.
