    Warbirds & Linux - it works :)

    Hi !

    Today i've installed Vmware for linux and Windows 98 as guest operating system. Then all windows updates, directx, warbirds, FHL... and it works! I can log in and play. But 2D.

    I've tested it on my Celeron 433 - WB works as on P75 (warps a bit). But on Pentium3-class PC shouldn't be any warps in the game.

    Hmm, installing vmware and windows to fly wb under linux is a bit like shooting flies with a rocket launcher from inside a bag using remote camera to aim ;)

    Hey there

    Run WBFH on mac is possible, but as far as i know, at moment only 1 way, with an emulator, the only emulator i would use at moment, is called virtual pc, i runned it on an G4 - i-mac - 1 GB ram, but virtual pc, kill pc speed heavy..., so its only possible play wb, with some diashows in 3d and only possible in 2d., i tested it in OSX 10.3.3 - 10.3.5 Panther, if u use, classic os 9 is possible to get better virtual pc speed...,

    Another try, i watch out for some programmers to bring wbfh to mac, i miss this simulator XD, but I, by myself, cant programm that good Y.Y

    ok, greetings from major pappy XD

    here we go
