- The "-run" commandline option bug fixes
- The "Mount CD-ROM" popup only appears if there is more than one drive present
- Robustness fixes (better handling of games installed via symbolic links, game configurations that are user deleted, etc.)
How To Install Point2Play
Point2Play is available in a variety of pre-built binary packages designed to suit most Linux distributions.
First select the package that is right for you:
rpm - RedHat Package Management (RedHat Linux, Mandrake Linux, SuSE Linux, etc)
To install the Point2Play rpm package, open a console/terminal window and execute the following command as 'root':
# rpm -ivh Point2Play-[version].rpm
deb - Debian Package (Debian GNU/Linux, Corel/Xandros Linux, Lindows,etc)
To install the Point2Play deb package, open a console/terminal window and execute the following command as 'root':
# dpkg -i Point2Play_[version].deb
tgz - Tar GZipped Package (Slackware Linux, GenToo, etc.)
To install the Point2play tgz package, open a console/terminal window and execute the following commands as 'root':
# cd / # tar -xvzf Point2Play-[version].tgz
(The tgz was generated using the alien utility)
- Distributions such as SuSE 8.2 and Debian Unstable use a version of pthreads which only allows for a 2 megabyte per thread stack size. Most games do not require more than 2 megabytes per thread, however some games such as Metal of Honor: Allied Assault do require more than 2 megabytes and will not work. If you use any release of Cedega or a release of WineX more recent than 3.2 then you can play without pthreads and not face this limitation ; however, WineX versions 3.0 and 3.1 DO require pthreads and will suffer from the limitation described.
You can see if your distribution has this issue by running the "Test if POSIX Threads (pthreads) Are Required" test in the "System Tests" tab in Point2Play.
- Renaming a Program Group may affect game functionality as there is a slight chance that renaming a program group could affect the functionality of the games contained in it, especially regarding registry entries with UNIX paths rather than Windows paths.
