It doesn’t take some people long to make good of an opportunity. Five days ago the gaming house Raven released the source for Star Wars games Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy and not one to look a gift horse in the mouth Joachim Leopold dived in and started porting Jedi Outcast to the Linux platform. Today he posted on his progress, a close to working port. There are still issues right now, load and save not working as well as sound not matching up as it should along with many more minor issues.
The most important fact if that the game will run, and hopefully it won’t take Joachim too long to iron out the remaining niggles. You can follow Joachim’s progress on Google Plus.
