Hello everyone,

If you feel like conquering the world, like smashing your enemies down mercilessly and rewrite history then Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 is made for you. You'll play three different factions fighting in a world where history has been modified (the nuclear bomb never existed because Albert Einstein has been assassinated) and technologies are surprising.

PlayOnLinux is going international.

We are now looking for people loaded with motivation, craving to help (hum) who can speak/write a language that is neither French nor English.

If you're this person, that you want to help the project and are available enough to make a difference, contact me by private message.

That's right, I am the person you should send a message to.
Me, Myself and I are in charge of the internationalization so there is no point in flooding Tinou's mailbox.
Accepting this sacred mission turned me into the meanest admin ever .... muahahaha

PlayOnLinux 3.2

Saturday 29 November 2008 at 0:31

Just as planned, here comes PlayOnLinux version 3.2. Here are the main changes:

- Removal of the IRC client (as agreed)
- Only the second part remains in the Tool menu
- All configuration tools are grouped in one program : "Configure this application" so that the user doesn't get confused. This new configurator contains: "Wine configuration", "Registry", "Advanced Wine Configuration" (if the plugin is installed), "Updating Wine Prefix", "simulate a windows reboot", "specific Configuration".
- Specific Configuration allows you to specifically configure each application (if the script allows it).
- A bug has been fixed on the Set_GLSL function (for sciptors).
- The new function POL_SetupWindow_normalprefixcreate (replaces POL_SetupWindow_prefixcreate ONLY if the latter doesn't work with this application)
- An Easter Egg

Happy download

The IRC channel will not be integrated in POL anymore

Thursday 27 November 2008 at 0:15

It has been decided after a long and lively meeting between the staff members that the IRC channel will be removed from POL 's next versions.
Why is that? you might ask. well:

-This is clearly a functionality that doesn't have much to do with POL

-Hopefully, POL users will then be encouraged to read the forum and make the effort to look for answers in pre-existent topics.

Thanking you for your understanding and loyalty,

The PlayOnLinux staff
