OK, I'll give it a try. You could have written that in the readme (yes, some people read those ^^)
EDIT: Ok, works fine, but performance is still bad when gernerating a character or viewing the character sheet. as I said, I'm playing on Wine, it's a known problem. Performance in these parts is better in Crossover, I'm not sure if your patch made it better or if it is Crosover.
Well, thanks for the patch :) I guess it would be best, if the 3D character model on the character sheet could be replaced by a 2D image of some kind, but that would be overkill.
project makes a release. That might take (quite) a while as they aim to replace all proprietary libraries (directx mostly) with open source variants (OpenGL, OpenAL...).
