Colonial England. Under a certain amount of… duress… Jack takes on a job which will not only cause him a great deal of trouble, but also bring to light the answer to a mystery out of his distant past. A lack of money leads Jack to accept a charter to take a British secret agent to mysterious “Tooth Island”. When Jack’s ship shatters on the mysterious island’s cliffs on arrival and the secret agent quickly becomes a meal for a monster in the jungle, Jack is soon left to cope with the situation on his own. “ Tooth Island” is ruled by the strange Doctor T, who is cultivating man-eating plants and has his own dastardly plans for the British Empire. And why does he seem to know Jack, who can’t remember ever having been on Tooth Island? What are Doctor T's plans? And what does he know about Jack’s past?

Do you plan to port Jack Keane 2 to Linux/Mac OS X?

Do you plan to create graphical launchers for your games? I ask because it will be much easier to use them instead command line switches in terminal. I saw similar launchers in several LGP games

We do not. There are not a lot (any?) important of switches around to justify this kind of effort.

SSF does have a point regarding graphical differences. I don't exactly play adventure games for fancy gfx, but it does say a little about RuneSoft's abilities in that department.

I've created two bug reports ( Bitbucket.org and Bitbucket.org); feel free to contribute with screenshots or whatnot.

Thanks andreihaiducul,

that's the right approach, only people who ask for help can be helped.
I will investigate the problems you have mentioned in your tickets.

>While some effects are missing

the game cost 60 bucks back then and it looked like **** compared to the 2 other platforms,

This game and those 2 other ogre fail ports destroyed their reputation as a Linux porter

The price of Jack Keane was really high, but it was the best adventure game ported to Linux for many years.

I have a box version of Jack Keane for Linux, but I decided to buy a digital version of this game, because I really want to see more games ported to Linux by Runesoft.

Unfortunately I am using Linux and OS X, but I don't understand, why you don't want to sell games for OS X na Desura?

I think that RuneSoft doesn't have OS X distribution rights for Jack Keane on Desura, only for Linux. Maybe they do want to sell it here but cannot (RuneSoft devs would have to comment). Regarding the quality of the port, is it even the same team anymore?! I seriously doubt it. Why make the new guys pay for the old team's sins, if they're willing to fix it up? Digital distribution makes it easy for them to push out patches to us.

Well, Games for Mac OS X on Desura are a huge issue for Runesoft, but the exactly reasons are unknowns for the Mac users.
Jack Keane, Ankh, Ankh 2 for Linux were ported by Gabriele Greco, but he left a company a couple of years ago. Now there is a different team who is porting games to Linux. How many people are working on Linux ports of games in Runesoft?
