Any Linux users who got this to run?

Postby BoggartShenanigans » 17 Jun 2017, 18:21

Hi everyone :)

First of all, let me say how awesome this project is! I just discovered that Shandalar is still alive and I'm totally excited!

Anyway, I'm running wine 1.6.2 on Ubuntu 16.04. The good news: Deck.exe, FaceMaker.exe and Magic.exe all work flawlessly.
The bad news: Shandalar.exe just segfaults without even an error message.

Has anybody had any success getting this to run in Linux? Any tips you'd be willing to share?

Thank you very much in advance!

I am no linux user but from what I have read people run it successfully through a virtual machine but a lot more difficult to impossible to do so from wine.See these links:
