Hi all: please remember to read the rules and remain polite to each other. There's no need to get silly about such simple things. Let's calm it down a bit.

I think it's more that just saying it's a "Proprietary engine" by itself isn't really a selling point, it doesn't really explain anything and to most people it won't really mean anything.

And no, no one expects games or the game engine to be open source at all.

Thanks! You are destroying me in the comments with all those well-documented facts 🥲
I am basically a human-book of Linux gaming history at this point.

Do we know an example of a game with a native build & official anti-cheat support (BattlEye, EAC) that has dropped Linux support because of cheaters? Lol.
Rust.
That was fast 😭😂. Although I thought Rust did that because of low (percentage) numbers of Linux players.

Sorry enough to release an official native Linux client with official anti-cheat support?

Quoting: ExpandingManI'm pretty happy with this game at 1.0. I want to show particular appreciation for the dedicated offline mode, it's glorious. Screw you blizzard.

how did you get full offline mode to work? I've been trying this morning, but every time I try to play, when I click "enter game" it just dumps me back to the main menu.
For me on the main menu there's a clear button to go into offline play.

Once again, scraps, let's take off the rose-tinted glasses for a bit. Pre-HIB era we had hardly anything. I think some of you really have this weird and confusing nostalgia about how things were. I've been here since long before and it was not good. You had a hard time finding anything, most weren't supported at all, and while we had a few indie games they were tiny.

Given your previous posts, you just seem to be anti-Proton / Wine, which in 2024 I just find hilarious tbh. It's a button click to play stuff now, pretty much anything as long as it doesn't have anti-cheat. Proton is easy and it works well.

Quoting: gbudnyNo. We had the big titles on Linux and many indie games before HIB. Unfortunately, Linux users didn't have one or two online stores where you could buy most of these games. It was too fragmented for average users.
What's with trying to rewrite history? We definitely didn't get big stuff before the Humble Indie Bundle. We had scraps. Loki and then LGP died long before and neither actually did many ports. We had a few random indie games, and the usual open source stuff.

Quoting: PyreticThis is, without a doubt, the weirdest way to provide Linux support... But I'm glad they thought of us???
Well, if you take an Epic Exclusive deal you can't put it on other stores but they do allow you to still sell it direct. So it was their only choice. As a smaller outfit, the epic exclusive money no doubt helped development.

Quoting: RaymondTerrific Unpopular opinion: I beg of you stop saying “formally twitter”, it’s so cringe.
Like or not, X is what it’s called now but it’s not recognisable or clear and just calling it Twitter would be factually wrong. So I will continue to make it clear to readers.
