Most games* not some games. Most old games are 32 bit after all. I think most rage like my own back there could be avoided if a link to this page
was added for explanation of why you cannot offer refunds for other distributions (or a brief explanation that your 30 day refund ties in directly to official support) after reading that I understood why already.
Like I said I'm still bummed over it, but Linux is growing in popularity, and perhaps some day a year or two from now things can be better and most distributions can be supported. At least that is my hope for now, I may in the end use GOG on Linux after all. We'll see about Witcher 3 on Linux and such.
There are also a handful of games on Steam that have a Linux version but do not offer it on there ( is a favorite example for me, I would love few things more than to play that game on Linux, Tribes 2 is in a similar situation but it's not on steam) I hope you can get some of these up and running on GOG where Steam has failed us! :) (Although right now you have a lot of games that work on linux but are not selling the linux version, theres also the matter of [url=http://www.gog.com/mix/games_using_dosbox]all your dosbox games
, dosbox works on linux. I want to buy earthworm jim and lands of lore, rayman forever, star control, wing commander series, wizardry 1-7
(and 8) and all that fancy stuff)
Like I said before, releasing and supporting Wine wrapped games is slightly risky but still something I admire, and I know ther eis a mountain of epic games that run wonderfully on Wine without much trouble (Wizardry 8, Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars Jedi Knight 2, Baldurs Gate 1/2, Hitman (blood money and older), Overlord, Tomb raider series, Rune (if you can't get the native version), Beyond Good & Evil to name a few)
You may also want to be aware of the d3dstream patches for wine
which can enormously boost game performance when applied. This might be useful since you have the benefit of being able to redistribute your own version of wine
(GOG Wine and GOG Runtimes shipping with GOG Galaxy? This would sound good to me in the near future, and it's a lot more clean than releasing each wine wrapped game with it's own version of Wine, usually you don't need to and since wine by itself can be something around 600MB, it would save our hard drive space)
I agree however with former commenters that GOG should not be installed in /opt and it should be named something in one string, spaces in file/directory names are not very terminal friendly. I personally would have wanted to see it installed somewhere like "/usr/share/gog_games" or if you want an auto update feature that does not rely on package managers or require root access, "$HOME/.gog_games/" would have been fine too)
Your just starting now, I will like I said before not be buying anything now on this sale, the only thing I'm interested in on it anyways is Flatout 2 then maybe off sale theres duke nukem 3D. But you have a lot of games I would buy here, so I will just be keeping an eye on GOG for linux until it looks more attractive for me, make sure to write it out to somewhere whenever you do a sizable update for gog on linux so that I can read up about it on GOL/Phoronix when they cover it :)
