Ganni1987: Thanks for the headsup, just one question - What's the status on Serious Sam's Bogus Detour? The Linux verion is available only on Steam.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

liamdawe: I would like to know when GOG Galaxy will see an actual Linux release.

shmerl: Do you know if Galaxy folks are planning to eventually contribute some documentation, to help with community client for Linux? Right now there is a reverse engineered project already, but official input can be still useful.
I am not the best person to answer these questions as I don't work on the client - I work with the games and the offline installers. So, nothing to share from my side, in concern of being inaccurate.

king_mosiah: Strange... I have glibc 2.25 and the 64-bit version of Gone Home runs fine without this fix.

Edit: The 64 bit version of Hatoful Boyfriend works without the fix too.
Very curious! What distro do you use?

shmerl: Thanks for the pointer! It didn't yet arrive in Debian testing, but it's going to soon enough. At least it's good that using jemalloc helps.
Yeah, it's not even in Sid yet. Good old grandpa Debian <3

immi101: no, 2.25 is still blocked on Gentoo.
but from reading the linked bugzilla entry I expect we'll see this fixed in the next glibc release.
Would be lovely if a patched glibc was a part of Ubuntu 18.04 - the next LTS we are going to officially support.

immi101: have you ever looked into using to a better compression method than the default ZIP one( deflate ) ?
The ZIP format would allow to use bzip2 or lzma as well.
though Mojosetup might require some work to support that.
We considered using better compression, but the gain wouldn't be that big considering the amount of work needed to integrate it with our installers. So we decided to leave it be.

vv221: No demand here, I just wanted to thank the whole Linux team for their good work on GOG games ;)

The GOG packaging is especially pleasing when I’ve been fighting with Humble installers for a while, where I see things like 'shadowrun-dragonfall-linux.tar.gz_2.0.9.zip'…
We are flattered - thank you!

Arch proper on my laptop and Manjaro on the desktop.

Is it now common that lack of Galaxy network libs for Linux causes some developers not to release Linux versions on GOG? It kind of negates the whole notion that Galaxy should be optional (since it makes it mandatory, or at least developers make it so).

Do you provide some help to developers in regards to making Galaxy optional? And related question - when do you expect those Galaxy libs for Linux to be available for developers?

One of the issues with it is timing. I.e. even if developers implement Galaxy for Windows in their games, they might never do it for Linux versions even if Galaxy libs for Linux will appear later, since they'll move to newer projects. It will mean those Linux versions will never come out on GOG. It's really a major problem.

We do.

Same answer as the one regarding the Linux client timeline. But these two surely are linked.
So is anyone actually working on the Linux Client or is it in the planning phase? So many people are waiting for it (Position 2 and 3 in the most voted wishes). All the other wishes there aren't important for us, if we can't use it :D
Just give us a buggy beta^^

Thanks for answering all of our Questions :)
