So? Now try to port a complete and complex game, gather some testers (I'm sure a post with "<NDA>" will get posted now, because someone wants to show off he's an official MW on Linux tester) and do a port in just three weeks.
Most of the libraries aren't in their Windows form available for Linux (WinAPI). The whole Direct* infrastructure isn't available. I don't know, but I think most of the network parts have to be rewritten as well.

All that work for maybe 30 people?

(Okay, okay, I'll be honest - the MW demo doesn't work with wine for me. Don't ask about the full game - I don't own it. I would be really happy about a port but we're a lot less people than all the Windows users out there)

1) sysrq was being sarcastic
2) Introversion have always done Linux ports, you can definitely expect one for Multiwinia as well

;)

I know. But I wanted to point out that a port isn't done in a few days. It's massive work and usually has low priority. But thank you Introversion for doing the existing ports and (hopefully) the port of Multiwinia.

Didn't require a forum rewrite, I just had to alter the db schema :)

And unless he's changed anything since he mentioned LONGTEXT on IRC, you can now happily dump 4GB worth of text in a post. :D

But you are cheating. Surely you didn't create those by hand. ;)

Actually, I did alter them to fit the forums, so in part I did!
