Yes I tried it but got only ~ 5-10 FPS @640x480 with lowest detail - not playable. In GUI the speed is OK. I think it's due to using very slow SW emulation in MS OpenGL32.dll, it would be slow even on Windows if you don't have VGA with OGL driver. Unfortunately Daikatana has no native software renderer as Quake II or Unreal. BTW did you tried unofficial latest patch 1.3? It runs only under Windows but have some fixes and enhancements
