Spring MultiOS executables?

Post by Bla » 09 Sep 2019, 10:17

I bought a new computer, and I triple booted it with Arch, Ubuntu, and Windows.

Because both linux installations can access the oher 2 OS's filesystems but Windows can't, I'm putting all my games on the Windows file system with linux executables, so the game data is only in 1 place, rather than copied. This is so I don't have to update twice. I was wondering if there was a way I could downoad SpringLobby + Spring with both Windows and Linux executables, similar to how Xonotic does it, so I can download once, and run from either OS.

I don't think that's possible.

I ended up downloading a seperate spring lobby into each OS, but shared the same content download directory, so maps, engines, and games can be shared.

Engines cannot be shared!

Technically not sharing, then, but an effective way of keeping all your stuff in one place
