Back from holidays

On January 19, 2013, in news, by admin

I’m finally back from my long overdue holiday from work and all thing’s I.T. – fully recharged and ready for 2013.  Have quite a few games to add and older tests to update… Hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year!

[UPDATE: Sept 2013]
Well – work has taken up all my time – though I now have some site supporters who are taking care of adding new submissions to the site for me. Keep those submissions coming in, even though there is a Steam client for Linux, there are always going to be Windows games available on Steam that will need testing on Linux.

 

Forums Removed

On December 15, 2012, in news, by admin

We’ve had to remove our current member forums as too many spammers are attacking it and I don’t have the time to moderate every post… will see what we can do to replace them with a better WordPress integrated forum in future.

The Sony launchpad runs fine and updates the game.  When play is clicked the game does launch with music and background image – though immediately crashes after a few seconds.

Wine Windows Version: XP

I tried the replacement d3dx9_36.dll override as suggested by others though no change

This game sounds very close to being playable – so if you can help with this game PLEASE COMMENT :)
