AGW runs on Linux Mint 18
« on: November 03, 2016, 10:52:19 PM »
Just a quick FYI if anyone's interested.
I did a quick test out of curiousity to see if AGW would run on Linux.  For my test I used Linux Mint 18 running off a thumb drive.
I just installed Wine, launched the AGW installer, and ran the game.  I did not try to enable background music.
No problems running it.

Thanks for testing this.  I have had several reports of Schwerpunkt games running on Linux using the Win emulators.  By design, we used ANSI Standard C and the Win32 API's to create the games.  This has made them portable for many years.  The only compatibility issues we have seen in 16 years are:
1. Old install programs that are a problem for Windows OS
2. The link to Help files (have to mod to your browser)
3. The link to music ( have to mod to your media player).

That is it!
Ron
