Hello! I've (finally) got Aveyond 1 Rhen's Quest running on Linux!!. The PC is quite old (that's a 2005 model) with only 1G ram and integrated 64mb graphics, so the performance is questionable, but should work tons better with modern systems. I've done a screen video here:

The above one is running Ubuntu 12.04

This one is with Xubuntu 12.04 running off a live CD (Believe me, I'm much better off with it :P)

 

The frame rate is not good as my PC gets more than a ~bit~ loaded, but it's still playable.

Cheers!

No, I specifically DID NOT. This is code native to Linux (written in C and ruby).

That's cause emulators/VM are extremely slow and really not worth it.

Linux is an operating system just like Windows 8, but it is open source and free. This means that unlike Windows, you don't have to pay to install Linux on your PC. Not only that, you can modify it as you want (if you are fairly good in programming). Many big firms (e.g. Google) mostly use Linux instead of Windows as it is far more flexible and saves the licensing costs. Windows software (like Aveyond) don't generally run well on Linux (without emulators), so I've created this one. Linux is THE operating system if you want to do serious work on a PC. Cheers!

Got it working on Elementary OS (Freya) on amd64 :D

I cant upload a video of this one, as my old PC really doesn't like running 64-bit OS's in just a gigabyte of RAM, so it practically freezes when I try to do a screen-video. :(

hi, how are you running it? Really want to play it on linux!

Hi! Actually, it's a custom build that runs natively on Linux, not an emulator. That means it'll have to be published separately from the windows version. I've mailed the developers, and I'm waiting for their reply. You can support this initiative by spreading the word :) so maybe we'll soon have this officially!

 

By the way, in case anyone new sees this post, all of first three games which includes Aveyond the Lord of Twilight are working in Linux. In theory, I can get it to work on Mac, but I can't work on that since I don't have a device.

Stargazer Christmas Linux Build - Download it here:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bxvz3wbxE2UXemt3VXhmRmpFdEk/view?usp=sharing

 

Instructions:

1) Download the tar.xz file.

2) Copy it to your home directory.

3) Extract it there. If you are using Ubuntu, you can right click and click "extract here". If you are on another distribution, run

tar xvfJ "Stargazer Christmas.tar.xz"
4) Go to the directory created and run "stargazer". If it doesn't run directly, go to the directory, and run the following command:
chmod 777 stargazer engine*
5) Then run "./stargazer" to run the game.

 

Please report any bugs here, so they can be corrected!

 

(Note: This is a fan-made build)

Thanks for trying it :D

I've, as I already said, mailed support, but nothing is final yet and I haven't received a mail from them confirming this would ever make it to the stores. Meanwhile, all I can do is wait and hope (and share ;))

BTW, thanks for reporting the bug, I forgot about it :P Anyway, it'll take time to fix as I'm not home now and I don't have a laptop.

No, the buying system would change, as the existing one doesn't support Linux :( The only possible way is to have it absolutely separate

I think I had read somewhere that Aveyond 4 would run everywhere, but nothing of the other upcoming games. Thanks for your interest anyway :)

Ahriman's Prophecy is made with RPG 2000, so it'll require a whole lot of work to do it over again... While it is theorotically possible, it's really not worth the effort :(

Besides, while I have already ported the entire Aveyond series (except AP) and Stargazer, I really don't have time to port any other game... I'm short on resources too, saying that currently I have only my phone (literally, I can do nothing right now:P) and my two old PCs when I'm not out of town (which I generally am)

All that aside, why dont you try and tell me how the Stargazer Christmas build I uploaded above runs on your PC/Laptop? That'll help me a lot too, as I have absolutely no test devices :D

That's great! Thanks for the test :) I don't know if Aveyond Linux will ever make it to the site (I've mailed and am in talks with the developers, but I guess they are too busy with Aveyond 4 right now...), but maybe I'll see if I can get in talks with some free game makers and port those RMXP games to Linux.

Cheers!

You can also use MKXP to run them natively on linux

https://github.com/Ancurio/mkxp

 

Though, the easiest way to do it is to use mono or wine. Always Sometimes Monsters ( http://store.steampowered.com/app/321100/ ) uses mono to run on linux. Even amaranth games could do this and release aveyond on linux, but I doubt they'd be willing to spend the effort.
