After playing Alice for way too long, I started to really get a kick out of the noises the pawns (you know, chess pieces) made. So, I did some digging, and ended up extracting them -- they make an excellent desktop sound scheme! I find them absolutely hilarious. Maybe you will too. ;)

Anyway, I put them up for download, if you so desire. (I don't think EA will mind too much.) Again, they're absolutely hilarious. Excellent game, too.

I like to use death1.wav for window closings and alert2.wav for log-offs.

Downloaded... Flux doesn't do event sounds that I know of though.
Think I may have to start emerging WMs again.

Yeah, and yesterday I saw Alice repackaged (just the CD case, no box) and available at Wal-mart and Target for $13. It's a good game, and it runs under WineX, so why wouldn't you want to try it? :D

Configuring WineX seems more a task than I'm interested in deciphering ... I will eventually.

Youll prob. find it easier than expected , only being playing with linux for bout 4-5 months and I found it a piece of cake , bins and cvs create a base registry automagically during the install , all you have to do is alter the drive links in the config file and your away , I recomend it , I dont even have windows on my box anymore or on a spare drive for that matter :wink: I'd say someone with your knowledge(judging by previous posts ) would find it a walk in the park.... :D

Cheers
Dale.

I think I installed wine. Briefly looked at some documentation (man page likely). I just didn't feel like figuring it out.

I thank you for your vote of confidence. Sometimes I think I'm drooling on myself saying 'look at the pretty lights' :D

When I need to run something under wine/winex, I'll figure it out.

If someone is a Unix/Linux user for a longer time now, he hadn't much choices yet to play games...What was before loki ? nothin :P

I wouldn't call marble, minesweeper etc. games in this context :)

That's the idea, but they're different screams.

It's funny! :D

Nope. I have yet to be overly impressed with the current theme of gaming. i.e. "Doom style". I played one once, found it boring. I prefer strategy games. I don't think much of the 'WarCraft' style either.

The last game I played was 'Asteroids' under RH 7.1 or .2 before I installed Gentoo. (Wasn't asteroids, but some clone). Killed the time.

I also like Missile Command, Pitfall (not the sequels), Defender and probably some others. Played some 'breakout' like game under RH as well. Entertaining for a while.

Haven't been using linux that long, I'm just not a big gamer. I like minesweeper better than any of the '1st' person shooters out there. Requires thinking (and a bit of luck). By marble, are you referring to Marble Madness? Loved it... should look for it again.

Yes, I mean Marble Madness.

Well, 1st person shooters require very much skill and understanding of tactics if you play in a Clan (like I did for over a year), but if you join a public game it looks like wild shooting without too much sense :)

The problem is that you get more upset if you are losing and you have less time to think about it...if you lose a chess match you think "argghh" for a few seconds, but if you lose a Clan match in UT, Q3 or CS you strike with the fist on the table and you are an a**h*le for the rest of the day (if you don't play in a clan for fun but for fame, and unfortunatly, the last applied to me until 3 months ago).

Since I am not playing in a Clan anymore I can live without windows - that was the only reason I couldn't kill my ntfs partition (was only 3gb of size :P ) but that one is now gone..another aspect of stopping "real" games :P

And no, UT in Linux, Q3 in Linux etc. are much harder to tweak than in windows if you aim for semi-professional gaming and I doubt anybody is happy with Q3 or UT in Linux if he's playing on a more professional line.
