Setting up Construct under Linux?

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Thu Jan 22, 2009 6:40 pm

I recently switched over to a new machine, a Linux box using the Linux Mint OS. I however cannot get Construct to install under WINE due to not being able to install DirectX under WINE for some strange reason. I had seen a few posts around about using Construct under Linux through WINE, and I am wondering how to do this. Thanks!

Other people have had the same issue. Unfortunately I don't think anyone ever got it working.

Do you think a "PlayOnLinux" script would work? I would assume I would have to make one (unless someone else already has of course), but I don't know if it is worth the time...

Construct uses the latest DirectX updates, and from what I've heard, either WINE doesn't emulate DirectX well enough, or it's not kept well enough up to date. It seems these tools are just not mature enough.

I see... I guess I will have to use my laptop sometimes then...Because of course because after running Linux Mint, I don't want to spend money on another Windows OS. Thanks though!

I wonder if an old version of construct (that uses an older version of DirectX) would work with WINE.

It's a possibility.
