    Re: Odd Problems With Defcon's Textures

    Umm...just a little bump. (Apologies if this is frowned upon, but it's been a while!)

    I have heard tell of this working in Wine - but no luck myself. Can anyone verify whether it's just my system, or does this little game really not work? :(

    Re: What was your first Console?

    An Atari 800XL. Technically, it was my dad's. He even programmed a couple of games for it, sent them to some PC magazine of the time, and they appeared on the coverdisk. Even later, when we were...

    Re: How do I install warsow?

    I've heard reports that that installer doesn't work with Dapper. I've never got it to work for me; I had to install a static, pre-compiled version. So from the website, where it says "Linux: full,...

    No, it's silly of me, I forget that the majority of people on these forums use Gnome. As yet, I've had no luck with anything else :/
