"BioWare was kind enough to talk to us about their efforts
with porting their games to Linux. BioWare is an Electronic
Entertainment company based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. BioWare
has developed Shattered Steel, Baldur's Gate, Tales of the Sword
Coast, and is developing Baldur's Gate II, MDK2, and Neverwinter
Nights. BioWare's principals are Dr. Greg Zeschuk and Dr. Ray
Muzyka. Originally family physicians, both Greg and Ray now devote
the majority of their time to BioWare."
"As a long time RPG fan I was thrilled to find that you
are porting NeverWinterNights to Linux. When reading an interview
with BG 2 producer Ben Smestad linked from your site I got the
impression that Baldur's Gate 2 is also comming to Linux is this
This hasn?t been sorted out yet. It is certainly within the realm
of possibility but there has been no formal announcement at this
time. We would announce this together with our publisher, Black
Isle/Interplay if it did occur at some point in the future."
"How difficult do you think it is to port to Linux? Any
specific things you miss?
It?s not bad. Some of the variable driver support is a bit of a
challenge, but overall it?s a worthwhile endeavor."
