A new Linux gaming site has opened at http://www.linuxgames.com. Demos and games people have always been at loggerheads over one thing or another, but keep an eye on this site. It’s good to have a major games site (telefragged.com) supporting Linux games.
Anyone notice that the webwatcher doesn’t seem to be watching my site anymore? It’s still listed, but updates haven’t been reported.
Now, getting those TBL demos to run in Linux..
Beware that the iXalance executable is a libc6 app.
The README file with the iXalance loader only mentions the TBL page (original authors of the iXalance loader on Win32) and I’m not sure if the Linux version can be downloaded there. Check it out at http://www.tbl.org/tbl32.htm.
The loader is quite small so here it is, located on my own site, the iXalance loader.
The GGI project can be found at http://www.ggi-project.org. Find the file libggi-1.3.0-1.i386.rpm if you have RPM installed and download it.
Note that you don’t have to recompile your kernel or anything. The loader only requires the libggi library.
Now look at those TBL demos in all their glory!
