Hey guys, does anyone know anything about this new cheat engine that is coming up? Battleye...I as just thinking about it, and am wondering if this will affect any Linux Soldat players, as cheat prevention systems seem to one of those things that just don't work.  ??? Any other games with it that we can try out first?

Battlefield (from 1942 to 2142) use Punkbuster. They're not the same thing are they?

Sweet. Good News
 Though that description is lacking and screenshot does not show its current status.  :P

It's still coming 3rd in the vote list. So.. If anyone has the time go here
And once you login go here
Then at the bottom left of the screen. Vote for Soldat as many times as you can.  :)

Yea, I'm not sure why, the full description should be:
"Soldat is a unique side-view multiplayer action game. It takes the best from games like Liero, Worms, Quake and Counter-Strike and gives you fast action gameplay with tons of blood and flesh. Soldiers fight against each other on 2D battle arenas using a deadly military arsenal."

But it gets chopped off for some reason, and it isn't the length as you can plenty of other longer descriptions...:P

I added some screenies!
here's one, just to show it works with beryl:


And another to show the game works, and the ingame text when using the font fix #2 (replacing fonts):

I'm running Gentoo on my computer.  Any idea how I'd go about installing the GIT version of wine?  I know I can just do "emerge wine" to get wine...

Stern, I guess you'd have to do a "emerge git" to get the GIT program, and then:

Code: [Select]
git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git wine-git
Will copy the WINE GIT course into the folder wine-git. From there you:

Code: [Select]
cd wine-git
and have fun testing stuff.

LOL, make that 23. I removed my vote seeing as how I just noticed this in the voting "help":

Quote
Please seriously only vote for applications which will benefit the community. Don’t vote for applications that are known to be working well. We know Solitaire works. Voting for it would not make much sense.

Apparently its not a popularity poll, its a support poll, and seeing as how Soldat is almost perfect (just that dumb text bug, which is easily fixed) there's no reason to vote for it...>_< So I moved my Soldat vote to Photoshop CS2, since that works crappily! :P

Oh well, Soldat will still be pretty high up there, maybe it will still pique some Linux dudes' interest... ;D

I don't understand why people want it to work with Cedega....

Cedega is not free, they are slow in updates, don't seem to pay attention to their Linux customers anymore (they are transitioning more in to Mac stuff now), and they don't give back to the Wine community (like Codeweavers, and their Crossover Office app).

Soldat works in WINE right now, WINE is where it's at (free, actively developed, and they are the main dudes behind it all anyway)!

Only a little... ;)

Guys, some awesome news. looks like someone has looked in the text render bug, and have committed the patch into the GIT tree! :D I haven't check if it's in the latest version (0.9.34) but the bug is marked as resolved, and that means Soldat should work 100% out-of-the-box in the upcoming version! :D  :o
