What works

rb3d server:

- everything works. ( tested from suse 10.1 upto 11.1 )


rb3d player:

- installs

- plays  ( single play and multi player )

(tested and used from suse 10.1 upto 11.0 )

glide emulator (emulating a 3dfx voodoo graphics card ) for much better graphics works well, too.

What does not

In fact, this is a generic problem with wine :

joystick buttons are not caught and discarded by a button => keyboard stroke mapping program, such as autohotkey. wine passes the button presses through to the program anyway.

(allthough the keyboard strokes get passed through, authotkey works very well)

in RB3d this is irritating, because several buttons are hardcoded into the program.

button nr 3 in particular, drops a bomb. so you kill yourself, whenever you hit that one, standing on the runway......

A windows utility for this is available, Auto hotkey.
