      I saw sum1 in beyond unreal point out something interesting thou.

      where does this news leave Linux users? They won't be able to play RO: Ostfront 41-45?

      Did RO developers even think about that, and if so, they just didnt care?

          We shall see.

            Meh. A big part of the hardcore RO crowd consists of disgruntled DoD players. People have been ribbing that team to go Source from day 1 just about. Seems they've done the next best thing.

            On the one hand it's cool that Valve is opening the door for massive direct- marketing of indy games. :up:

            On the other hand, it's fncking Steam. :down:

              Hey, they're just using steam for distribution, atleast so far, for that steam is good. It's just the bloody product verification part of it that blows.

                Thank you.

                so Linux and Mac were discarded, right?

                I guess the move to Steam was just a very good oportunity to be wasted on those small communities. It's a shame thou.

                        Heh, you obviously missed the thread I was pointing out. The team is very intrested in providing mac and linux support and several members of the community are allready looking at ways of getting Steam up and running in linux (and have succeded)

                          Oh, what i saw was someone say that both were left out so i assumed they were

                          But how do they run Steam on Linux, using a windows emulator, i assume?

                            So far they are using emulators to my knowledge.

                              Cedega (the commercial fork of WINE, the Windows "not an" emulator for Linux/BSD) has supported Steam for a while now, but Valve continually changes steam which breaks it for Cedega users, requring an update for Cedega.

                              Also, in my experience, performance in cutting-edge games through WINE is dismal, and usually unstable.

                              So the only option for Linux RO players is to pay for an emulator to run a program to allow them to pay to play a game in an emulated Windows environment at a performance/reliability penalty, even though the game was made on an engine that has had native Linux support for years.

                              Definitely a step back.

                              Oh, yeah, and Mac users are RIGHT OUT.

                              That's not to say I don't understand why the developers went this route. They want to reach a wide audience, and get paid for their work.

                              It just sucks that they've partnered with a company that is so tenaciously riding Microsoft's jock. Valve supporting any platform other that Windows is about as likely as peace in the Middle East.

                                "The Day The Earth Stood Still" is one of my all time favorite movies. Everyone should rent it and watch it, definitely a Sci-Fi Classic in a class all it's own. :up:
