StarCraft II Wings of Liberty script is available

Thursday 5 August 2010 at 13:43

Hi everybody,

After being away for month, I'm back and I decided to strike hard for my return. Now, PlayOnLinux has StarCraft II Wings or Liberty script in his repository.

StarCraft II : Wings of Liberty features the first of three fully featured single-player campaigns, kicking things off with the terrans. Humanity's representatives in the Koprulu sector have been through a lot since they first left Earth centuries ago and have adapted to a variety of hardships while subjected to dictatorial rule, zerg invasion, and protoss cleansing. Despite these struggles, they’ve still managed to cultivate heroes, advance their technology, and-- most importantly -- survive.

A bug tracker is available

Sunday 1 August 2010 at 23:51

[box title=Bug_Tracker][/box]
Hi everybody,

Today, PlayOnLinux open its bug trackers

Some indications

- It supports differents projects (PlayOnLinux software, website, scripts)
- It is designed to work with the scripts. PlayOnLinux might have a crash manager integrated to this bug tracker in the future
- No need to re-register if you have an account on PlayOnLinux' website
- Every language are allowed. However, you will get a better support in French or in English

Why do we code our own Bug Tracker

I spent time searching an adapted bug tracker. I wanted it to be integrable to the website (for the scripts, and to allows members to have a single account). Redmine was pretty adapted, but it's coded in ruby, so it is difficult to install on debian, and it needs new apache extensions which take resources
For the moment, the bug tracker is simple, but it might be enough for a start

You can help to translate the website!

Thursday 25 February 2010 at 18:42

Hi everybody !

Many of you sent me a mail to help translating the website. That is why today, I built a file that contains all translations of the website.
If you want to help us, you can download this file to translate POL website in your language.

But please know that, even if you help translate the website in your tongue, we can not guarantee to open a forum section and a news section. In fact, we also need moderators and newsers for that.

But at least, the member would be able to understand the home page, the download page, the main links, the member list, private messages, etc...

The file is here :

Hope we could open new translated website
Thank you for your help !
