Heroic Games Launcher 1.8.0 'Arlong' is out now and goes multi-platform

even if it is not possible to replace all the different launchers, it would still be nice if the ones that can be unified will be unified.
Every little bit helps.

You have a shop, an updater, an installer, social functions as baseline, maybe some statistics and achievements. That should cover 99% of these apps.

We will see how far this project gets.
Maybe some people will donate time and money to improve shop support. There is a donation page.

I think if we end up with two applications, steam and heroic, it would be already quite an achievement.

Hopefully we can find a few enthusiasts that bring in support for other platforms.
Galaxy is nice but depends a lot on the original launchers.
Having an updater that keeps priorities for downloads across multiple stores is an interesting outlook.
Getting rid of the launcher chains would be amazing.
I'll keep an eye on this project

I hope that these fixes come to wine and wine staging too.
Using the base of proton shouldn't be a punishment for too long.

Quoting: tmtvlNeat. Too bad it's Ubuntu, we don't need Canonical to grow too big for their shoes.

I still think it is a good distro for people.
Maybe not the most recent stuff in there, but that is not needed if it is a solid experience.
They reverted bad ideas like amazon lense so why should we still bad mouth them?

My Computer dual boots into Kubuntu 20.04 and i like it. There is a problem with the old nvidia card, but i can safely blame nvidia for that and go to my amd.
The problem is hardware not the distro.

What have you been playing recently and what's your pick this weekend?
