Thought it would be cool to start a thread for collecting (legal and TOS-compliant) Entropia-related tricks and hacks people come up with who run the game under Linux. First idea I had was trying to hunt with all the UI elements off. It's really pretty with a clean screen. There are of course limitations when you can't keep an eye on your health and ammo, but e.g. using melee and hunting mobs you know can't hurt you, all you need to know is when your weapon is about to break, and this can be read from the chat file and piped into a text-to-speech engine. Steps to reproduce (on Ubuntu-based distros): 1. Install a decent TTS program and a nice voice for it: sudo apt-get install festival sudo apt-get install festvox-us-slt-hts echo "(set! voice_default 'voice_cmu_us_slt_arctic_hts)" > ~/.festivalrc 2. Create a sed script with filename "repair.sed": s/^[^\+// /^\[System\]/!d s/^\[.*?\] *// s/^\[\] *// /^Your.*?is close to reaching minimum condition/!d s/./&/p 3. Issue the following command pipeline or put it in a batch script (replace with your own chat file location): tail -c0 -f ~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/EntropiaUniverse/drive_c/users/k/My\ Documents/Entropia\ Universe/chat.log | sed -nurf repair.sed | while read line; do echo "$line" | festival --tts; done The following documentations helped with figuring out some details and options used above: https://askubuntu.com/questions/53896/natural-sounding-text-to-speech https://www.redhat.com/archives/rhl-list/2005-July/msg00342.html https://www.grymoire.com/Unix/Sed.html#uh-32 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18797569/unix-piping-tail-f-to-festival Cheers!
