PlayOnLinux 4.1 is available

Saturday 19 May 2012 at 23:09

To finish the week, we're happy to announce you PlayOnLinux and PlayOnMac 4.1 release.

Here is a short summary of the changes

PlayOnLinux can open documents, and manage extensions

Many of you asked this feature, now it's done! PlayOnLinux can open your documents, for example you can associate .doc files with Office 2010

How does it work?
  1. Tells PlayOnLinux/PlayOnMac that you want to open .docx files (for example) with Microsoft Word 2010 (These settings can be found in option menu). This step can be automatically done when you install programs with PlayOnLinux.
  2. Open your .docx file with PlayOnLinux/PlayOnMac
  3. Voilà

Warcraft III installers updated

Wednesday 16 May 2012 at 15:38

Hi everybody,

To continue with the Blizzard serie, I've updated the good old Warcraft III installers.

The old installer was really broken, and it was likely not to run with recent versions of PlayOnLinux and PlayOnMac. More over, it did not support Blizzard Online installer

Now it is fixed. Reign of Chaos and Frozen Throne works on Linux and Mac OS (for those of you you are running Lion and only have a Power PC installer)

Reign Of Chaos

Diablo III testing installer added!

Tuesday 15 May 2012 at 18:13

Hi everybody!

Diablo III has just be added into PlayOnLinux's testing category. For the moment, the installer works only on Linux

It should work without problems, however, the installer needs to be more tested. Consequently, it will be placed in PlayOnLinux testing category

For the moment, the installer is designed for the game downloaded on Blizzard's website. However, we are actively working to make the DVD version compatible.

For those who have the DVD version, you need to mount it manually with unhide option and install it with wine 1.5.4-DiabloIII manually. Don't be afraid, we've planed to support the DVD version very soon.

Edit: Ubuntu 12.04 people who are not able to connect, please run the following command:

[code=console]
echo 0|sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/yama/ptrace_scope[/code]

We really need you to send us feedback, even if the game works for you.

Thank you
