A: unfortunately we do not have access to the source code.

This bring up two FK mothering questions.
1. Are these people being stupid on purpose? Have they the brain worms? Really, we don’t exactly like WINE “ports”
2. We know Steam has some WINE compatibility but will they make it a thing for lazy ports?
Grr… I need to go find a chair.August 15, 2013 at 12:53 pm #68974PizzaDudeMemberQuote:The code has been lost.August 15, 2013 at 1:02 pm #68975
Don’t care if the code is on FK mothering Mars. Allowing WINE ports in the native Linux client sets a horrid precedent.August 15, 2013 at 5:14 pm #68983PizzaDudeMember
Yeah I hope other devs don’t see this and make it an excuse not to make a native port.August 15, 2013 at 6:23 pm #68988linuxgnuruParticipant
Call me crazy; but using wine to play a game isn’t a “port” it’s nothing more than when I use MAME to play old arcade games…yes; I just said wine is mame.August 15, 2013 at 6:30 pm #68990Sore_LoserMember
FOR WHAT IT IS… WINE is great. Unfortunately, it’s a type of hack. It’s amazing to think its translating in real time. It took me a while to realize the inherent problem with an over reliance on WINE though (I’m slow). When push comes to shove, runnin’ sumthin’ on WINE isn’t a ‘Linux game’, it’s a plan BAugust 15, 2013 at 6:32 pm #68991linuxgnuru wrote:Call me crazy; but using wine to play a game isn’t a “port” it’s nothing more than when I use MAME to play old arcade games…yes; I just said wine is mame.
Now brain about the support. Valve on supports 32-bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTS *takes drink*
I don’t think these poor bastards know what they’re in for.August 15, 2013 at 6:51 pm #68996
I bet most people here wouldn’t know what Arcade games are written in? and why MAME is WINE just for something a little different. By the way I used to flash those proms………….August 15, 2013 at 7:32 pm #69001Freejack_ wrote:I bet most people here wouldn’t know what Arcade games are written in? and why MAME is WINE just for something a little different.

What PROMs were you flashing and for what? Huge MAME fan.August 15, 2013 at 8:31 pm #69009
Games like Elevator Action, Discs of Tron, Pacman, Ms. Pacman and a few others. Some of those where multiple proms.August 15, 2013 at 8:31 pm #69010
I am a huge MAME fan too I have to resurrect my roms from a drive and set it back up.August 15, 2013 at 9:34 pm #69016z1lt0idMember
I’m having a MAME drinking game tomorrow night. I will thank you for your efforts Freejack_
