Yes, I know. FB / AEP don't support Linux. They don't have to. They're games. But the corresponding server should run under Linux. The server doesn't have to show any graphics, just a .ini file from which to read the settings.

For AEP this obviously comes too late. But for PF, there might still be a chance. Take a look at other successful online games. ALL of them have Linux dedicated servers.

I hope Oleg and his team will consider adding Linux support for servers only, in my opinion this would help online play a lot.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

I will bump this, most likely nothing will happen but they need to rethink it because any game today that doesn't support this is horribly hindered and in this day in age there is no reason to support it.

I use a variety of gaming servers for a bunch of different clan/squad games and this feature just simplifies the while online gaming expirence and provides excellent connection speeds because they can be hosted by proffesional game hosting companies.

Sucks some major monkeyballs that UBI or 1C/MADDOX haven't discovered Linux yet. they should as it is vastly superiour in server-tasks.

I for one would 100% sure host a dedicated 24h server if it was also implemented for Linux. No way am I ever hosting any kind of internet-service on a Windows system.

(btw: this is a reply to a 'searched' thread, don't bash me for finally using the search-feature ;p)
