I just don't have the HD space for a full linux distro at the moment. (I play with live cds though).
DRI comes with X.

I think both ideas have been vetoed by Tim Riker, so it'll be a long time before anything related to either one will be considered. But I would like to see the ability to maneuver around gentle slopes and pyramids without having to jump. I expected something like that :wink: But you're exactly righ...

So you can have, say 3 rabbits, 7 hunters, and the game would be great fun. Yeah, great idea! memo: gotta get a linux system set up so I have a proper ...

Have it so you can define your own polls, sorta like C macro's. (Any Dev's listening)

ie.
#define poll mute : mute $1

OK, not really C. Or any other language that i know of.
