This is my first script for POL, so I'll appreciate any remarks. I'd like to know, whether the script works on other systems, and (if it works fine) what should I do to add it to the official repository.

What works:
* Everything visible on screenshots (http://picasaweb.google.pl/101494349230221813390/MasterOfOrion2#)

What I haven't tested, but I suppose it will work fine (well, not worse than on Windows itself):
* Tactical combat.

* Everywhere user is supposed to enter some string, it's very difficult to do. The game reacts very slowly on user's keyboard input. Fortunatelly, such situations are very rare in the game.

The script:

Oh god how I love the productive environment of PlayOnLinux, first you have to read some really shitty documentation to write your script, then when you want to give the world your script, some weird guy says your script is bad and that he can't help you. Seriously, I am really starting to understand why people doesn't use POL.

TPJ, if the game is working (I can't test it) your script is great! Don't listen too trolls.
If you want to add it to the repositories, go here and submit it. =)

Thank you very much for your contribution!

I'm really tired of explaining people each time the same. There are plenty of post where my answer for such script is the same. He probably hasn't seen them because:
1) he is isolated from that part of forum (I don't think so)
2) he is too lazy, self-dependent, want to get special care etc.

BTW. Shitty documentation isn't my fault.
