    Re: [New Game] OilRush

    Bought it through the Software Center. It's now outdated.

    I regret buying it through the software center. I should have bought it through Desura.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ryzom from the APP Store

    I have the same problem. What I'm trying at the moment is deleting the content that has been downloaded to your home folder (~/.ryzom/data). It's hidden so you'd have to set nautilus to display your...
  4. Re: Book recommendations for Python/GTK+ needed

    Books on Python? Billions. Books on Glade/PyGTK? Psshh, good luck. It's hard just to find up to date documentation for those. Honestly, it'll probably be quicker just to do everything from scratch...

    This happened to me too. I was working on my Perl homework and I accidentally yanked the power cord from the wall while getting up to use the bathroom. I opened up the .bak~ file and it's just CSS...

    I didn't find a thread that addressed all my issues and the ones I did find were dead threads that were horribly outdated. If I missed a post that included a description and solution of my problems...

    Re: Is [quality] OSS gaming possible?

    Thank you all for your replies.

    I'm not 100% on it but I'm exhausted and need sleep... and don't want to think about it anymore. I haven't really heard anything definite yet. "If it works closed...

    Re: Is [quality] OSS gaming possible?

    Woah, woah, woah, I didn't see what I said to prompt such aggravation.

    Also, where did I say that I wanted proprietary games written for Linux? Have you read the original posts? Any posts at all...

    Re: Is [quality] OSS gaming possible?

    Yes, that is is exactly what I am saying. I fully recognize that free != open source. But, I'm just posing the question: Can it be done?

    Sure, Quake was a good start and the Source Engine will be...

    Re: Is [quality] OSS gaming possible?

    I wouldn't call them blockbusters, and if I did then I guess you could say that the gaming industry is pretty good at pushing blockbusters out. I would compare it to the movie industry - it has a ton...

    Congratulations on your game.

    I define 'quality' in this context as something that appeals to the masses. I disagree with your opinion on top-tier games. Most of the quality commercial games I...

    I didn't see 'open-source' attached to many of those games. Many of them were built on proprietary technologies (few worked on Linux; most were for Windows). Personally I think the resources used...

    Is [quality] OSS gaming possible?

    The question: Is it?


    For the sake of argument, I will use the first person shooter 'Crysis' as the standard for quality. It cost 22 million USD to produce the game and even with the staggering...
