Hi,
I got Heroine's Quest and A Tale of Two Kingdoms to run on Linux.

I've seen there's some official support in the works - the page on crystalshard.net mentions using wine 1.6.2.

I'd rather not use wine (since wine limits us to x86 processors - Linux is widespread on ARMs as well) - and got everything working with the native Linux version of AGS.

Is there any interest in my versions? Also, am I allowed to distribute them? (The README file included with the games says they're free to distribute, but doesn't talk about modifications...)

Thanks, tried it and it works perfectly here on OpenMandriva Cooker.

I also have a build for ARM devices (e.g. 96boards or Raspberry Pi) -- any interest in that? (I don't think steam supports ARM though)

One (extremely) minor issue with the beta build: All number of data files have executable permissions (*.cfg, *.vox, *.001, *.exe, *.pdf, *.txt, *.png, *.tra, Soundtrack/*).

Doesn't really hurt, just looks a little odd in the filesystem.

What version is that?

This is something Steam does that we have no control over.

We'd primarily be interested in an Android build.
