Planetside 2 for Linux?


I raise this question because I am getting broken bad sector hard drive on my laptop replaced and I am going to put Lubuntu on it. (No I dont have the Vista Recovery Disk or my older XP Recovery Disk and I'm using my old Desktop (3 years) running Windows 7) Also Linux gaming is very possible because we have the technology just people dont want to develop and if that is the case then I'll use WINE (hopefully).

Doubt it. Although I hardly know much about Linux so who am I to say it won't happen.

The key for Vista is on the underside of my Laptop and the key for XP was on the packaging of the disk which is also gone.

I though this was actually asked at some point, with the response of no Mac/Linux versions planned right now?

I could be imagining things though.

I'm not surprised and I'm guessing PS2 will be using DX11 right? Although it could've been possible to make it in OpenGL.

Good luck. Wine is usually hit or miss with many programs.

Do they even make graphics drivers for that platform?

Well, it depends on who you mean by "they"...

In any case, I'm pretty sure the devs have confirmed that Forgelight uses DirectX. So no native Linux or Mac clients.

I know at least Nvidia Has current (500 series, it shows the 600 series as win vista/7 linux 32/64 etc but no xp) drivers for Windows xp/vista/7/8(32/64) Linux 32/64-bit FreeBSD 32/64-bit Solaris 32/64

http://www.geforce.com/drivers/

I have used them on ubuntu and debian desktops, to play games through Wine or native games. I know that Unreal Engine based games, at least the older ones like Unreal tournament, all the Quakes probably some new stuff but not sure, are supported in Linux with OpenGL. But most games need DirectX to run properly. =[

I know I could get EQ2 running on it by importing the dir or something was a few years ago. There was some minor to moderate graphics and texture issues that I could have probably gotten fixed but just installed win7 after a while cause it got to be to much work.

There are a few ventrilo compatible or ventrilo-like programs for linux too that ran pretty good (I used to log into a vent server from the program called Mangler, can't access the webpage on this pc atm some kind of PHP error).

Would be cool to support linux but it would cause some problems. plus most people who use Linux could probably get it working one way or another, although it probably wont look as nice or be as easy to get going.

So you want to run a triple A, frame rate heavy FPS game on a 3 year old Desktop running ubuntu with WINE? I dont care how much WINE isnt an emulator, or how awesome people think it is.. it will still cause some overhead. Tied with the fact that the game wont have been tested in this format or optimised for it i would be very surprise if you could have a good gaming experience. WINE might work for Quake or Unreal tournament but PS2 will be a whole different kettle of fish.

No I want to run a tripe A, frame rate heavy FPS game on a 5 year old Laptop and run it with Lubuntu after the HDD gets replaced and also WINE is an emulator the "E" for WINE means emulator and you don't need WINE for any of the Quake Games (apart from 1) and you only need WINE for Unreal Tournament 3. And you didn't read my host comment (host comment being the comment that starts the thread) because I said my 3 year old Desktop is running Windows 7.
