Report article RSS Feed Battle for Wesnoth now on Desura

Battle for Wesnoth is now on Desura! Windows only for now. Linux support coming soon.

Posted by Grickit on Jan 30th, 2012

A lot of you have been asking for us here, and we delivered.

For now you can get Wesnoth 1.10 for Windows. We hope to have Linux support very soon. There are also plans to put the development (beta) versions of Wesnoth on Desura.

This also means that you now have a method to download patches for Wesnoth; no more downloading the entire 300mb game every time there is a new release.

We're excited to be here. If you have any questions, you can get help on our official forums. You can also follow us on twitter.

Very nice but, as a Linux user, I still have to use the copy from my package manager, manually add it to Desura's listing, and manually edit Desura's iteminfo_c.sqlite to set the icon.

Here's hoping they offer a Linux build sooner rather than later.
