    Just wanted to know if Darghul is going to be compatible with mac, linux etc.
    If not, could you pleeease try and do so?

    I recently purchased a Macbook and downloaded Teudogar and the Alliance with Rome but the game would not work after many attempts.
    Hopefully a Mac version of Teudogar could be created but I hope even more that Darghul could be played on Mac's. :(

    Ok, at present, Teudogar and DARGHUL run on Windows 95, 98, 2000, ME, XP, Vista, and 7.

    Unter Linux they should theoretically run if you've got the Windows Emulation software installed, but I don't know if they do. Anybody tried running Teudogar under Linux, and does it work? And what do you need? WINE, or anything else?

    About the Mac I have no idea. Anybody else tried this?

    Basically, the situation is like this IMO: Microsoft Windows sucks very much. But still, 90% of PC users keep using it. If Microsoft keeps releasing more stuff like Vista, I'd expect more and more Windows-users to move to other systems (personally, I definitively would; but so far most of my customers remain on Windows). But even if Microsoft's market share declines to 70 or even 60%, and the Mac/Linux share increases to 15 or 20% each, it'd still not be all that economical to develop games for these platforms.

    Anyway, my way of programming is pretty system-independent. Basically, I think I can convert both games to almost every system without too much effort. I already did look into games programming under Linux, and already have plans on rewriting the low-level- and graphics- functions source code files for Linux, which would allow me to create a Linux version. (For the Mac, I'd have to research technology, licensing, software requirements and some other stuff first.)
