Do We Want Ubisoft To Support Linux?

@FutureSuture I know all that - and still think they should. It's our decision weather to buy it or not.

They'd count me as pirate though, because even if I bought the games, I'd get cracks (non-uplay and drm bypass for not being online)...

To be true, I hate the ubi launcher, and I hate the lock-in and DRM of them. But yes, I'd love to see it on Linux (FarCry 3 ).

The thing is: in the end, I can decide if I want to go for it or not. Having the choice, that's what it all is about.

Trolling Delays Linux Release Of The Stanley Parable

STiATSaldy, most of the critism guys are the very outspoken and loud ones. The ones quietly waiting are hardly recognized. If you ever developed open source - you probably have thousands and even hundred thousands of happy users who won't loose a word about it - and a few outspoken guys with a lot of critism and judgement - even about your person. I withdrew of a project because of that reason years ago.
To be fair, there is a fine line between criticism and trolling, which in this instance seems to have been quite heavily crossed (especially by the derogatory private emails) but does not apply to all criticism or opposition to something. Going after the person certainly is objectionable, but taking issue with a project on certain grounds is not, at least not when handled in a professional and suitably respectful manner.

I don't really take a difference there. Critism can be trolling.

In fact, trolling is mostly based on the product, not the person. "Critism" can often be a personal attack ("are you incompetent or just retarded? the feature XY didn't work again as I expected"). Though, despite the feature was never intended to work that way it was used which certainly was a fault on checking for the way to use it. I got personal mails like that. My answer "if you can do better do it" wasn't well received though ("you are the ******* developer and maintainer, you have to care about it!!<trillion!>"). Maybe you see it the other way around - but I consider trolling as something which has no context, just telling everything bad because you like something else. In example, trolling would be "fuck the linux port, go for more features on platform XY".

Just read - it's using Source and that Gran PC is answering here. So you don't need to port the engine (well done using an exising one ). As I said - keep your head up - you miss all the quiet ones not complaining, who probably are the majority.

I don't know the source engine, so I don't know which troubles you are running into porting - guess I can't be of much help there...
