And there it is:
Now look what I found (ok, it wasn't actually me):
Do you really call this DRM? I think it's quite reasonable for a commercial multiplayer game and I can't see any drawbacks for the user (beside the fact, that you can't copy and paste the code to the dialog).
There is a humble introversion bundle: Humblebundle.com
Multiwinia for linux, yay :)
I don't get why linux users buy it through steam, before checking the frictional store. There was a 75% discount at the same time.
not yet. maybe because of the indie royale bundle? :D
Not only rumors anymore: Pay what you want for Voxatron or pay more than the average to get Voxatron, The Binding of Isaac and Blocks That Matter!
Voxatron! Humblebundle.com (There are rumors that the binding of isaac and blocks that matter will be added later based on findings in the steam registry)
RFC 1149 - Datagrams on Avian Carriers - Tools.ietf.org
Thank you, take a plus too!
oh no I accidentally clicked on the "-" instead of the "+" and I can't revert it :(
No he is right, you shouldn't pay less than a dollar. Also use bittorrent for downloading the game, it's cheaper for them. And you can pay more later, when you like the game and you have more money. You can change the amount afterwards.
Same engine, right?
I know, could be much work to port it anyway.
Thank you feillyne :)
You have to go there now, seriously ;)
(would make a news post if I had time, maybe tomorrow, or someone else? :D)
i.e. project zomboid demo:
I can launch it from terminal with your launch.sh:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH before changing it in the launch.sh: /opt/java/jre/lib/amd64
after: /PATH/TO/desura/common/games/project-zomboid/./: /opt/java/jre/lib/amd64
Works without problems.
LD_LIBRARY_PATH before change: /PATH/TO/desura/lib
NEW PATH: /PATH/TO/desura/common/games/project-zomboid/./: /PATH/TO/desura/lib
and I get this error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no lwjgl in java.library.path
(the spaces are not in the PATH, I just can't post long "words")
Yes about that, most games don't start for me with your launch.sh, but with the standard start script/binary.
Now the more important question:
Where should we report this stuff? Just keep spamming these comments, your regular bug forums, will there be a bug tracker or should we even message you?
Yay, writing my first comment from within Desura :D
Everything I tested worked and looked good so far, installing games works, even launching for some of them :D
you don't have a 64 bit system, do you? Because for me on a 64 bit arch the installation is not working.
they just could ignore cents and only allow dollar steps... it would still be pay what you want, only not that precise :)
why are you selling Humble Indie Bundle keys on ebay? That really sucks. And you want to get into game projects? ...
some will like it, some won't. For me it's perfect. It's what I'm doing with games anyway :D
Thanks for the rewrite, c++ linux version runs great!
on the humble bundle page, desura for linux is not finished yet
also my root partition is too small. why are games so big? :D
Honestly I don't really handle games in my system like regular programs.
Don't know if you can (already) tell us about this, but how will you handle game installations? Will you just put all games and other data in a directory in the users home? (that is also what I would like most)
And (even more uncertain if you want to tell about this) are you already talking to game devs/publisher about releasing linux version through desura and are there some planning to do so, right from start?
It would be good, if all news in our group would be on desura, too.
Some are only on moddb.
I know, someone already explained to me, that this is because these articles are linked to games, that are not on desura, but why does it have to be this way? More news would be good.
gamepad support, finally :) nice work!
This came to my mind, too, just after submitting my last post: You're right, supporting existing games is more complicated.
Nevertheless, there are (more or less) standard paths to look for software and for the other cases, like if custom installers were used, you could just ask the user to choose the directory, when manually adding games that could not be found.
Another (or additional) way to go, could be options
1st) to set a games directory, if the user installs all his games that have a standalone installer to a specific directory and
2nd) to call an external script (or plugin) to find additional games. If you do this, the community could make their own scripts, to search their package manager databases/lists of installed software, or do all the other stuff you haven't thought of. You then could possibly adopt good solutions.
yea, but please don't start worrying about different distros and path structures etc. I've often read stuff like this, when people thought about how difficult porting to linux is.
I would recommend to offer local installation for every user (just in an subdirectory of ~/.desure , or let the user choose), so that you don't need root permissions to install,
and an additional option to install to /opt/whatever for all users.
That's easy and works everywhere. But maybe that's already how you're planning to do it :)
