CurseForge, the popular game modding client, has now officially released an early Alpha version for Linux. Since it's early, and they're starting slow, for now it only supports mods / addons for World of Warcraft (Wine) although they do have plans to continue expanding it. A bit of an odd one to start with though don't you think?
It's been through a few different hands like Amazon / Twitch, with the current owners being Overwolf. One of the reasons its so popular is not just because of the amount of games and mods it has, but mod authors can also earn monies from it too.
Some of the current known issues include:
- Switching between flavors and installing addons will cause an error
Navigate to a different page (e.g "My Addons") and then install the desired addon.
- Navigating to "My Addons" while installing an addon will create 3 instances of the same file
Shouldn't impact anything besides the UI. Change to another page and back to fix it.
Relaunch will close the App
Close the app and then open it manually.
Deleting addons and reopening CF will cause the addons to be "modified"
This is a known issue, shouldn't affect anything besides the UI itself. We are working on a fix for the next upcoming versions.
We'll be following it along now, so we can report on any major updates when they happen. As always, do email in if you see something we don't.
Download it here. The Linux version is an AppImage, so it should hopefully work well across different Linux distros.
