I had emailed Jeff a couple of weeks ago asking about registering Lost Souls, and I also asked about Avernum 4. He said he was hoping to have it out by December 10th.

A few months after, depending on how long it takes to work the bugs out.

Aha! That's how he does it! Alorael double-posts and then deletes his second post! That's the secret to having 10000 posts!

Well, that's an old conspiracy theory, but I have also heard rumors he does not live in Alaska at all.

I am not SMoE. Although we are strikingly similar, we can always be distinguished by our respective choices of instrument and the degree of zeal with which we pursue the musical arts. And a few other things.

—Alorael, who should stop deleting his double posts so everyone can keep tabs on them. There really aren't that many! Honest!

Are there any Mac emulators? I'm just wondering as it would be kind of good to play the demo when it comes out, rather than having to wait a few extra months.

There are Mac emulators, but I'm not aware of any which Avernum 4 would run decently on.

Well, um, considering that you'll undoubtedly download and buy the Windows version, I suggest just waiting a few months. That would be simplest option, though it may not be the most immediately gratifying one.

This is pure torture knowing that A4 will be available soon for all you mac users. As a windows/linux user myself, just knowing that people are playing the game when I can't will be agonizing, not to mention reading about people playing it here on the boards.

You are a linux user? For a long time now, i want to know how Linux works, and these books only give me the empression that Linux is a twin of Windows. Could you explain me what it really is?

As long as you attempt to define Linux in terms of Windows, you cannot understand it. :P

Google will tell you:

quote:

Linux is: Linux is a free open-source operating system based on Unix. Linux was originally created by Linus Torvalds with the assistance of developers from around the globe.

Unix is: An operating system co-created by AT&T researchers Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson. Unix is well known for its relative hardware independence and portable application interfaces. Lots of big companies are using Unix servers for its reliability and scalability. Some of the popular Unix flavours are: Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, etc.

An Operating System is: The software that the rest of the software depends on to make the computer functional. On most PCs this is Windows or the Macintosh OS. Unix and Linux are other operating systems often found in scientific and technical environments.
There are many key differences between Linux and other Operating Systems, but one of the most important ones (besides it being free and developed by volunteers) is that it is based on a command line system. There is very little you can do in the graphical interface of Linux that you could not do in the command line mode.

Linux is completely different from windows. The only similarity is the hardware. Linux runs on PCs as well. The entire operating system is unique. The best part of linux is that it's free, so if you want to try it, it's not hard to do. The important thing to remember about linux is that you have to do everything yourself. It's designed for people who like programming and a command-line interface, soit's not for the faint of heart. However, you can grab a self-help book like Linux for Dummies or something similar, and learn how to use t quite easily. That's what I did. Now, I use linux for everything but gaming, which is why I have a dual-boot linux/windows machine.

Linus sounds indeed quite diffgerent then what I thought it would be, its just that on the pictures in the books it looks so much like Windows. So its completely different and free? The only problem is that I would have to get new hardware or not? I suppose my windows woulnd't be able to also have Linux on it.

Linux is famous for having versions for almost any hardware, including Intel, PowerPC, palmtop computers, and even toasters. (Okay, maybe not toasters.) You won't need to buy a new computer to run Linux.

There's nothing preventing you from having Windows and Linux on the same computer at the same time, either. It does take a fair bit of technical knowledge, though. (Knowledge which I don't have, so don't ask for my help on how exactly to do it. :P )
