Ganni1987: A few weeks ago I read that the Xbox One controller is still a work in progress on Linux.
Linux 3.17 (which was released just a couple of weeks ago) added support for the Xbox One controller - rumble doesn't work though. However there probably aren't too many games that support the Xbox One controller out of the box. So far I had only success with Rogue Legacy, which I play a lot right now for exactly that reason. ;o
Hi Linuxers,
Just a word of warning, I recently found out that several recently updated installers generate lots of Runtime errors under Wine; And /nogui does not work as a workaround since it generates its own load of Runtime errors (not the same, but still). Actually some fellow Linuxer got replied by GOG support that /nogui was no longer officially supported at the moment.

So, to keep it short, be aware that games that do not officially have Linux support here may not install nicely, even if the game itself has good rating in the WineHQ's AppDB, tested using either the original installer or older GOG installers.

Oh, great. That combined with the fact that all GOG installers cannot be extracted with Innoextract makes me a sad panda.

Thanks for the warning though.

Thanks for the heads up - I missed all that since I didn't install anything recently. Did GOG provide any info on that password? And why do they use it? It smells DRM.
Whoa, the only point I can see in using password protected compression is to enforce the use of the GOG installer for installation.
I have 460 games here, most do not have Linux support yet, some may never have.
If the installer becomes not Linux friendly and there's no technical workarounds, it could become very silly.

Trying not to look alarmist here, but still, I'm a bit worried by current technical heading...

Unfortunately I had to resort to InnoUnp. It does the same thing as InnoExtract but better. So far it let me unpack every GOG installer I've thrown at it, it even extracts the iss file which contains registry information and literally the whole script to rebuild the installer.

It comes only as a Windows binary and has no gui.

I haven't seen any official word about it. Currently the majority of Linux gamers still have a Windows install available in one form or another which makes me rather skeptical it's DRM related. They can simply run the installer, as it includes the password, on Windows, and copy the files & etc over. Complete speculation on my part, but I believe they updated to a newer version of Inno Setup with these knobs automatically turned on.

Does it run well under WINE?


Anyone sent in a support ticket about this? While using the installer in this fashion is completely unsupported, assuming this wasn't deliberate on GOG's part, they may not even be aware of it.
