    Lightbulb WORKS! alpha centauri - GOG games on playonlinux

    hoping i will make somebody happy in the new year

    i believe that some of you were looking for a possibility to run alpha centauri game on linux. yesterday i stumbled upon GOG website and noticed that they had the game - somebody mentioned it worked under playonlinux. i bought it for a couple of dollars - it installs easily through playonlinux and so far works flawlessly.

    system: Linux Mint 13 LTS & Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    enjoy!

    mentorious... what can I say >.< (i took the smiler away - maybe that will help)

    mastablasta - didn't play the multiplayer yet. actually i remebered this game from 90s, and back then i didn't have internet so i never played on multiplayer. is there a server i connect to? or you play with friends through IP address?

    yeah i remember those days. best option i had to connect to internet was a 56k phone modem. the other mashcine had 14k so i used to play this one on LAN mostly. yeah you connect to IP in lan. or start the multiplayer game and the other LAN user will see it.
