View Full Version : Gamespy Tunnel using Wine?

03-12-2002, 03:57 AM
Hi all... well.. my Windoze just froze.. I reboot and get a "Unmountable Boot Volume" error on a blue screen... so I reboot in safe made.. same deal. DOH! Lucky for me, I still had my linux partition that I hadn't booted up once since WinXP came out... but now I am back on the linux and I think for good. Only thing I am wondering (this is for any other linux geeks out there):

- does gamespy tunnel work when emulated through Wine?

If you have no idea what I'm talking about thats okay.. I'm just hoping someone in here has tested it out.. cuz I'm thinking of just getting totally rid of windoze altogether. This kind of fubar windoze thing just happens too often. Microsoft makes one hell of a gaming console, one ***** of an operating system. Does it show that I'm p!ssed? ARRGH!!!

The program that gamespy stole the tunnel from was actually created in and for a linux OS. I forget the name but im sure theres a version of Gamespy that works win linux/Unix.

Id check and give you a link but my IExplorer crashes everytime i got to http://www.gamespy.com

The initial program that was made is called XboxGW.

It is for linux, and the new release is available in both RPM, tar gzip, and bootdisk. From what I understand, Gamespy built their software off this design.

You can get this <A href="http://www.xboxgw.com/linux.html">here</A>. I have yet to try this out, but it supposedly works just fine, and if I understand it correctly, it doesn't use WINE. (Don't quote me on that, I haven't checked it out thoroughly).
