Linux Kernel dev bans University of Minnesota for sending malicious patches

Quoting: Whitewolfe80I like the second press statement from the university we will investigate on how this got approved in the first place translation someone getting fired in the morning.

While I and others would love to believe that. Based off the fact that this continued to occur after they were "discovered" nor have any names involved been leaked or revealed by the University. They may be inclined to attempt to bury it, which isn't unheard of regarding Universities and controversy. This honestly violates various laws like,
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_Fraud_and_Abuse_Act yet no charges have been filed. Hopefully there are at least lawsuits.

Intent is hard to prove though i mean if its is everytime they try to submit a patch then theres no room for doubt. Once or twice could be genuine error

Mmm potentially interesting i d love them to do collector packs of their old games a bit like the indie box project or even a special run of their shareware games from back in the day miss that kind of thing, I remember getting a double shareware pack at EB games of Doom and Z (the rts) for 2.99 ah great gaming times.

Quoting: CatKillerIt's generally quite straightforward: they aren't very good at game development.

The, "oh, but the sales," or, "oh, but the fragmentation," or, "oh, the graphics drivers," are just flimsy excuses because they don't want to admit to themselves that they kinda suck at their job.
No. And saying things like this only proves you have no idea not only about game development but also project management.

Yes but to be fair it also sounds like this company has no idea what project management is either

Selaco is an upcoming GZDoom-powered shooter that looks awesome

I hope this suceeds I probably wont be buying it because shooters with no story leave me cold (i bought ion fury just to support linux tried it and got bored after 1st level) the gameplay loop just isnt enough for me but its your jam crack on, the work on GZdoom is seriously impressive given how old the underpinnings of the software is.

Looks like Narita Boy from Studio Koba will now not be supported on Linux

Quoting: Purple Library GuyAs nobody has yet pointed it out here as such, I'll do the obligatory mention:
Anyone who is suddenly figuring out now that it's too hard to support Linux (on a game done in Unity no less) clearly didn't think about how to make the game run well cross-platform back when they were in the planning stage (if there was a planning stage), didn't pick libraries intelligently and so forth. Now they're stuck because they couldn't be arsed to think about what they were promising back when they were promising it.

I think when they said they tried to make a linux port i think they meant they pressed export it didnt work so they gave up rather than there published excuse of well we realised it would cost money and we werent willing to pay for it.

Quoting: Luke_NukemIt will more than likely work fine in Proton.
Well yeah but its not the point is it people were worried proton would become the default i would argue it already is. Feral have smartly become a publisher using old partnerships C&A to bring out their first offering multi platform.
