Quoting: megamanx1978After watching this trailer I decided not to get this game due to woke propaganda.

wtf... why are so many sociopaths attracted to Linux?

These days, I'd be happy if we get a port at all.

Do you remember two years ago when proton came out and people on this site seriously thought linux gaming numbers were going to radically grow because of it? :)

So we are still getting a native version? That's great! Let's hope it's better optimized than Imperator Rome, the native version runs a lot worse than using wine...

Buying Windows games will bring more native/supported/whatever games to Linux in the long run.

Funny to see people going from "won't touch that with a ten-foot pole" to "yes, I'd like to try it, thanks".
And yes, I'd like to try it too! :P

D9VK is no more as it merges with DXVK, making DXVK a D3D 9/10/11 to Vulkan layer

Quoting: rkfgDXVK has a "fundamental flaw" and that is the language it's written in. Wine doesn't accept C++ code, unfortunately.

Now I wondered what they're using.
Pure C?!?
Yes, Wine is written in pure C.
Guess that is one way to make sure a project never has too many people working on it.
What a waste of potential.

Pure C is fine for smaller projects or concise little libraries.
But big ones purely in C is just nightmare fuel. Go take a look at the FFmpeg sources if you don't believe me.

Alright, merge Wine into DXVK, then ;)
C++ isn't picky about having some pure C code within.

What the fuck are you talking about? The most ubiquitous, successful and with the greatest number of contributors ever open source project is written in C, the kernel itself!

Quoting: Sir_DiealotIsn't DXVK that project that just went into maintenance mode because it's not feasible to develop it further?
No, that was other sites making a mountain out of a little GitHub comment rant. Don't read into it.

Isn't GitHub the only channel the DXVK dev uses to communicate? In those little comment rants he clearly stated that after the merge of D9VK his project is going maintenance mode, because it's a "fragile, unreliable and frustrating maintenance nightmare". AFAIK he did not retract that anywhere. Do you know something we don't know or what?
No it's not, they have their own Discord. Don't take comments made out of frustration, as actual plans.

TIL Discord is official, GitHub is not.
