    I wish that would be doable, deanjo- really, I would. I'd do my best to jam a remix of that one specifically for Linux out the door. The problem would be that if we COULD find the rights holder, I doubt they'd be reasonable on royalties to make it happen. If you can find me the rights holder and I can make him allow it to happen, I'd knock it out for you just because of what I said- because it'd be a Linux SKU to point people to to help fix the problem.

    Wanna step up to the plate? I can't do it on my own because MY plate's a bit full with things including a full-time job above and beyond the LGP stuff.

    My, oh my... I'm impressed. And they're relatively local to me. I'll check into it then. Thanks for the lead, deanjo. Honest.

    [edit]

    This is even more funny... Their publisher is in town. No promises...but I'll check into this shortly and get word back on the forums about what their take is on at least a Linux version out of them.

    Not expecting a promise, just thought they would be a good candidate since they allowed the modding community to update the game under NDA.

    I caught that. I'm a bit busy today (and their comment code's busted...) so I'll have to bang out a formal letter to them from Earl Consulting Services (I'm not about to commit Michael Simms to things without his say-so... ) and see what they have to say.

    Considering who owns the brand for it now I think it's better of dead sadly. Personally it was Baldurs Gate and Planescape that got me in to RPG's, I've most have waste hundreds of hours on each.

    Heh, I know EA has butchered alot of games in the past but they also have had some successes. EA Sports games for example hold up well, the C&C series is alive and well, not to mention the Sims.

    My first RPG was akalabeth (precursor to Ultima 1) and played all though out the entire series. Lands of Lore was another and then Planescape and onto NWN. (Dungeon Siege wasn't bad also, A LOT better then the movie).

    thats an awesome idea - I would definitely consider picking up a copy if the port was done
