Nice job !
Is your Mac screen 4:3, or do you just prefer the old school aspect ratio ? Gehn Shard is the only one to have working widescreen, so I find it strange to use the smaller 4:3...

Old school I'm afraid. My iMac is widescreen but I just find it strange to play widescreen. Personal choice, I guess. I realise Ghen doesn't squeeze the avatar or distort the picture but it still doesn't feel right to me.
when it comes to Age creation ... "DOH" seems to be my middle name...

I can understand that. My first widescreen monitor felt as weird as having a new pair of glasses. Now I can hardly do without :)
With that said, I prefer to play MOULa in 4:3. The FOV bug is still noticeable but less annoying than in 16:9.
I still don't understand why MOULa is locked at 30 frames per seconds though...

Awesome work. :)

I don't really get wanting to play in 4:3, but hey, whatever makes you happy! ;)

Glad you were able to find a better Wine solution for Gehn. I was looking at their scripting system last week. It might be nice to set up a proper install script and submit it to their system at some point to make it easy for people to one-click install.

Oh, there’s ample room for improvements, I only know enough Bash to script some repetitive tasks :) I haven’t submitted my scripts yet, as they have been tested by about 2 people as far as I know, and some time ago. They worked for me last time I tried, so maybe I should just submit them :D

  • The Gehn script could be made OS-agnostic by defining $MOULAPATH and $SHARDPATH (the other two in fact are no longer needed) with relative paths. The problem is that I don’t know how to get the part on the left of “*/wineprefix/*”; POL doesn’t seem to define a variable for that. Then again, normally there are only two alternatives, as installing prefixes outside “$HOME/.PlayOnLinux/” or “$HOME/Library/PlayOnMac/” is only possible through symlinks.
  • It might be nice to add a prompt for an existing folder, so that the mystonline prefix wouldn’t be required, though it looks like POL_SetupWindow_browse only accepts files.
  • I think I found out how to setup exe arguments, if it works I can add the repair mode too!
