Fibs on a Chromebook?
« on: July 01, 2018, 09:29:03 PM »
Looks like Parlorplay is going down. Does anyone have any ideas on how to use Fibs on a Chromebook?

Thanks!!

I'm sorry to hear that about ParlorPlay.  Not because I use it.  I did try it and found it to be the WORST FIBS client I've ever tried, and trust me, I've tried them all.  But I think the GammonBots use it, but I could be wrong.
I know very little about Chromebooks but I found out there is an app called CrossOver that will run Windows programs.
I don't know if it's free of if you have to pay for it, but it might be a solution.
Here is a link to an article about it:

Good luck in your search.

Thanks Maria, no luck with Crossover. ParlorPlay is not the best but it works on a Chromebook. Hate to stop using fibs but cannot buy a computer just to play ;(

If you hear of anything else please let me know?

Thanks!!
