So I found out about "Battleswarm: Field of Honor" today and it sounds great to me. Could be a lot of fun ripping aliens apart, but as you might see from my DNA, I also like strategy so I will try to swarm those hummies, too.
However, I'm still a Linux-only-gamer and this game only provides a Windows-version. Some quick google-searches turned up with nothing useful, so I shall try to get it to run in wine.
Let's have a look at the requirements first to judge if there is even the possibility to run it:
» Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows® XP SP2 or newer -- maybe (wine)
Processor: 2.2 GHz processor or higher -- check (AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+)
Memory: 1024 MB RAM (2 GB recommended) -- check (4 GB Corsair Dual-Channel)
Graphics: 64 MB DirectX 7 level video card -- check (nVidia Corporation G94 [GeForce 9600 GT] (rev a1))
DirectX®: 9.0c or higher -- maybe? (wine)
Hard Drive: 1.5 GB free -- check (lol)
Sound: DirectX compatible sound card -- check (wine / oss4)
Multiplayer: Internet connection -- uhm, check ofc!
So, I should be all set - downloading it right now!
My wine-setup is fairly complex and sophisticated, so I think it will run for me (a lot of stuff runs for me that didn't for others, for example the early HoN-beta (they got a Linux-version now)).
Once I can report success, however, I'm going to set up a clean fresh install and provide you with all the details on what you have to do to enjoy it, too!
Check back soon to get my updates on this!
