Do Construct GAMES run in WINE?

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Thu Jul 30, 2009 4:32 pm

This is one thing I'm wondering about. I've been meaning to make a simple game with a friend for a while now, but he uses Linux. The thing is that I'd be doing all the actual construct stuff and he'd just be submitting sprites, music ideas etc.

I know Construct itself does not, but is it possible to get the games working?

I've never tried, you could give it a go and see. I doubt it would work, though, since Construct uses very recent (and a large number of) DirectX features.

This should give you an idea of what wine will do currently:

On a side note the developer of "In Another Brothel", Hideous was running it on a Mac using their version, or something similar.

I've had some luck with Construct games under WINE. Some run better than others, though.

Depends on the plugins used. A simple app with sprites run but XAudio needs DLL's which I can't get with Winetricks.

What? I don't use a mac at all. The guy who made the graphics ran it on his mac in VMWare though, but that's a whole different story.

There WAS someone who got an early build of IAB to run in Wine, don't know who.
