In former times I bought a Windows version of JA2, but now I use Linux. I heard that there is a Linux version, too.
Is there also an installer to use the Windows cd with Linux?

Huh ? Smile

Most of the time, programs written for Win32&co are in no way compatible with *nix systems.
You could try running ja2 win version under WINE in linux, but there's no guarantee it will work.

Just get the linux binaries, it will save you some effort.

hi. maybe my answer is a little bit to late, but..

you need to install the windows-ja2 on any windows-filesystem-related drive, for example; if you have 2 hard discs, use the first for linux and the second one for windows, format the second one with FAT32, so that linux can write on it too without any special plugins.


after you installed ja2 on the second drive, you can access it after you mounted it as root anywhere in /.
then just select the mounted drive and ja2's directoy and start it with wine.

note: this way will run much more stable and faster, than the linux-binaries. and i'm not the only one who made bad experiences with the linux-version...


ciao
