    I still have a physical copy of Warcraft II battle.net edition and it installs fine in wine. I think I have a copy of Warcraft but have no idea how it will install.
    Oh yeah, forgot about this. Back when I tried it I could never get the Warcraft artwork to work correctly but at the time they had some horrible libre art that was there just to demonstrate the gameplay and it turned out to be pretty good. I'll need to give this another shot.

    @Magic Sam , Last I knew Wargus required the original DOS release not the battle.net edition, but my facts are around a half decade old.

    Ive messed with wargus in the past and i think i did a pandora port. For sure it works with the DOS data, i dont know about the windows battle net.

    Hi all :)

    @TrashyMG and @Pickle : I just had a look at the FAQ here:

    https://wargus.github.io/faq.html
    I'd be willing to gift them a copy of the GOG version just to have it compatible with Wargus :)

    Cheers, Magic Sam

    the biggest hassle i remember with wargus is having to convert all the original data to the formats needed.

    Hey guys, everyone's favorite game about medieval Germany, Darklands, is on sale at GOG for 75% off right now.

    My problem: I already own it on Steam. Got it through some Retroism bundle or something. I'm finding myself tempted to get it again on GOG though... It just always bugs me when the cool older games are missing from my GOG collection because I got them on Steam instead.

    So, Trine 4 on GOG has this "scary" advertise:

    WFT ?! :-#

    So, the only way to get it AFTER pre-order will be piracy ?! :confused:

    They'll probably sell it as DLC after a while, but that's uncertain.

    Pre-Order exlusive levels/weapons/characters/etc... are a bane and it's really sad to see this on GOG too now.

    Also: Still waiting for the last two thirds of Trine 3, the game is still only 33% complete.

    If it's freebie tosh yes, it probably won't become available after that date, a little akin to all of the plastic tat that's sold with retail prereleases these days. But if it's worth actually playing, it'll probably become part of a GoTY edition in a year or so.

    But if it will be available in the future, then it will not be anymore a "pre-order exclusive"... and will make it a SCAM !! :oops:

    I'm always of the idea that things like these could be exclusive, yes, but just for a limited time...
    if you REALLY NEED everything now, and want to pay the price, it's there... else you can have patience and wait for the GOTY/Complete edition.

    Age of Wonders III and Sudden Strike 4 have pre-order exclusive levels that are not (legally) available to this day to anyone who didn't pre-order and that was/is the case for Steam as well as GOG customers.
