Hey guys, I've been using BYOND for a long while on my windows machine, but I have a laptop running Ubuntu 10.10. I've tried a couple of times already to get it running in Wine, but to no avail. There is a lot of information to sift through here, so I was wondering several things.
First, are there any people with fully functioning installs of BYOND on Ubuntu?
Second, I hear the terms ".DLL" and "Driver" being thrown around quite a bit. I'm familiar with the concept of them and I understand why they are necessary, but I don't quite understand how to install them on Wine.
Third, I've heard of horrendous amounts of lag when running BYOND successfully in Wine. Is this true, and is there anyway to rectify this? (Keep in mind, this assumes that I can get something working. :P)
As it stands, I've got the latest version of wine and I've installed BYOND in it using the Wine program loader, but I just click on it, get a little waiting ball, then nothing. Anyone know where I should go from here?
Sorry I am so clueless, but I'd like to learn more and in the process of doing so I'd like to get BYOND running. (One would say that this is my primary objective, but meh.)
