This would be really awesome. Do you think about it ?

Well this is, formulated as is, a stupid idea. Wine (as well as DOSBox) are 3rd-party helper tools, compatibility layer providers. It has it's own development cycle(s) as well as it's not in any shape or form part of the games in question. <br /> <br /> What would be nice is to have some kind of split Galaxy Client, a Linux client that can work with it's counterpart running under Wine, so that when you start/install a "Windows only" title it makes the users life easier; having something like WineTricks with an community fed back "tweaks" integration. Having features that allows to setup and tweak Wine/DOSBox at a somewhat central place, a wrapper to call the GUI of those tools; that would be awesome. <br /> <br /> Everything else that ensues from this broadly framed request is just asking for trouble, I mean just keeping these integrated solutions up to date would be a horror, plus it would split the community therein and that also would rather be a disaster.

@JOSHtheDrako the problem with comparing it to dosbox is that they're totally different beasts though. With dosbox you need a couple of config files and you're good, with wine you potentially need different windows installations with different configurations, which would add hundreds of MBs to every game.

I do not believe that this would work well. I have plenty of experience with running games in wine. Most need a lot of additional libraries and hacks to work well. Some need specific wine versions. What of all that stuff would you include in Galaxy? Some of that stuff could probably not be included legally. <br /> How does Galaxy work with mods? The issues are similar.

I thought the idea behind Linux Galaxy Client was to run pure Linux games and patch those game updates via the Linux Client? <br /> <br /> But a Wine Version of Windows or DOS to run Windows games? <br /> <br /> I believe there are a lot of Linux users who don't know how to run (.sh) shell script commands from the command line (CLI) to update their Linux games. The Windows GOG Galaxy client does a fine job of Installing, Updating and other task with most of my GOG Library of Games. <br /> <br /> The MAIN reason I buy games off of GOG is to have games that do NOT need a CLIENT program to run the game and also verify what I am doing.

I made a similar topic before finding this one. <br /> <br /> Although I would prefer a shell that's easier to use and more stable than Wine, because let's be hones.... WINE's more of an emergency solution than a viable alternative. <br /> <br /> But given how well they have handled DOSbox, I would be satisfied with it, so you got my vote.
