Forum topic: emulators
Well, for me the lgdb is an excellent place to check out games for linux. Because not many games are written for linux, emulation is an option to play those. I agree that non-linux games should not be listed here. But some pages with some options to play non linux games under linux would be nice. I can make some pages, but I'm not sure where to put them. The tools section would be the most appropriate, but I guess nobody looks there :)
Forum topic: emulators
No, there is no place at the moment, but there could be, if you take the responsibility ;)
things to consider:
- what information is useful?
- is there another site that takes care of emulators for linux?
- lgdb.org is not about emulated games so they will not be listed, but i think the emulator site usually takes care of that anyway (e.g.: http://www.scummvm.org/compatibility/)
i personally have very very little knowledge about emulators, so if you already have some design design ideas you are more than welcome to realize them.

the weird thing is, i remember me checking it.... ;) thanks for the heads up.
Game: Heroes of Newerth
To bad i will start with a negative comment, cause i really wanted to like the game, interesting gameplay, nice graphics and sounds. But i'm not gonna play it anymore cause the community is full of haters and flamers.
It was my first game of this type and i never played the Warcraft III mod "Defense of the Ancients" so i consider myself a noob. but thats not sufficient, if you are a beginner, don't even bother looking for servers labeled: "noob", look for "mega noob" or "ubernoob" servers but even that wont safe you from getting insulted because of "wrong" gameplay. If you want to give it a try, take a friend along, after all its free at the moment.
A very usefull site to begin, with explanations of some basic and advaced gameplay-elements is:
Game: Professor Fizzwizzle
It is nice game that makes you think. Some levels are quite hard and you have to try them many times untill you find the right way. Game is great, has lots of levels to discover. I have let my nephew play the 'kids' levels and he liked it too, played 20 levels in a row (then he wanted to play some racing game :)
If you play whole game, you can try another game - "Professor Fizzwizzle and Molten Mystery" which is quite the same with new levels and new features ( fire gun, teleporters, fly-bots ).
I played Linux and Windows versions and its the same on both platforms.
