Dear developers, Short version, please make a Linux crowd fund so that we can put our money where our mouths are. Top aim would be a native client. Secondly, approaching Feral to help port the game. Third being a supported Wine wrapper. Finally, the lowest rung, some cornered off time that a developer writes guides or answers some questions that we can try get it running on Wine or in a virtual machine. It has been two years since I played EVE. When they sold skill points, that was a goal post moved that I could not accept but this game seems to hold a possibility of not only filling that hole in my mind but scratching an itch that I didn't think was there. What I can find about it from you looks positive. I can not promise that it is all sunshine but if you can become platform independent, surely: Windows + Mac + Linux > Windows only revenues. Vulkan has opened up a huge path for making platform independent games. Many Linux gamers are counted in statistics as Windows players because we resort to virtual machines and Wine. Statistically, we also spend more given the opportunity on our hobbies and passions. Linux statistics can be surprising. Personally, using myself as an example, I am on the following machine: Intel Core i7-5820K (6 cores, 12 threads) @ 4.1GHz Mobo: ASUSTeK model: X99-E Memory: 16201.8/64335.1MB Graphics card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Hawaii PRO [Radeon R9 390] (I won't be buying MSI aka Micro Sun International again, the build quality does not impress me). GLX & Vulkan Version: 3.0 Mesa 17.2.8 HDD Total Size: 2000.4GB (12.7% used) ID-1: /dev/sda model: MZV6E500BW size: 500.1GB ID-2: /dev/sdb model: ST500LX025 size: 500.1GB ID-3: /dev/sdc model: ST500LX025 size: 500.1GB ID-4: /dev/sdd model: ST500LX025 size: 500.1GB (That is an M.2 for boot and some games + 3x SSHDs in ZFS RAID 5 for bulk storage.) My Steam account is also rather healthy. We bought into a vague promise from Star Citizen and we are still waiting. The key to this request is that you can see the direct contribution that Linux players make and adjust what you do for them accordingly. Thank you, Jen
Hi Team As I am a long term Linux user I am looking at working out how to get DU running under WINE in Linux. Once we know what WINE build, settings and components to install to get DU running that info can then be shared with the rest of the DU community. Naturally we acknowledge that NQ does not support DU under Linux, and that's fine. However I don't think they will mind the community finding ways of getting it to run on other platforms thus increasing DU's exposure to the gaming community. I don't as yet have access to the game so cant begin initial experimentation, and understand that the pre-alpha users are under NDA's, so we cant start down this path as yet. However this is the first step towards the end goal of DU running under Linux.
