You know how the best way to test something is to just use it? Well, using this turned out to be quite easy
Here’s the Perpetuum public beta running happily through Vineyard:
To run, just download the very small client from Perpetuum’s website, run it with Vineyard Launcher and select also to install Direct3D 9.
The game will work even if the installer complains.
After the somewhat disappointing release of the beta (did anyone download it?), I thought I’d tell a bit about the new features.
Steam is supported quite nicely. Steam applications and games are listed and can be run just like normal programs as well as uninstalled directly from Vineyard.
I know I haven’t made a big deal of it, but there is actually a command line tool included in Vineyard: vineyard-cli.
Vineyard-cli can create configurations, list installed programs, uninstall programs, map drives, setup virtual desktops, set audio options, set graphics options, well basically almost everything that vineyard-preferences can do so it’s excellent for use in
Granted, the implementation is slightly simple right now, there is no progress bar for downloading installation files right now, but otherwise it works! I should have done this earlier…
Yes, it will be released soon, don’t worry Will hit the trunk branch on Launchpad shortly.
