I believe the Windows installer is a bug because if you play around with your settings you get for all localizations: Unfortunately, there are no files available for the selected language (English) and operating system (linux) combination.
Yup, they put the Windows DLC installers up for the GNU/Linux build, but it appears to be a website bug. Unsurprising considering who we are dealing with.
Currently we have neither v3.0 nor SV for GNU/Linux.
Something that seems to avoid this sort of situation would be Galaxy Linux support but that's its own can of worms.
I see no worms at all. We have at least 3 third-party open-source applications that can download from GOG, and one of those even supports the Galaxy API. GOG making zero progress on the same front after all these years is pathetic.
I'm willing to wait an extra couple of hours/days for a DRM-free on Linux.
I would have been considerably more willing to wait were it not for the blatant bait-and-switch
. The GOG release is already late, trolling us with a release timer and broken downloads is not acceptable.
If you want something now, use WINE, go on a Windows machine, or buy another copy to support the developers on Steam.
No. No. And No.
If the game didn't support GNU/Linux I would not have bought it, whatever my feelings about Egosoft.
WINE is not the answer, and I have already claimed several refunds for games that were falsely advertised as GNU/Linux compatible when in fact they were WINE wrappers. You don't get to make a profit on the back of the volunteers over at the WINE project.
If the game was only available on Steam I would not have bought it, whatever my feelings about Egosoft. I will not tolerate DRM, and I certainly won't pay for it.
I'm sure if we are supportive and understanding they'll continue to improve our experience in a similar way.
I've been supportive and understanding for years now. This has gone on too long.
I've been understanding of the lack of a Galaxy client.
I've been understanding of the constantly late releases, missing files, and broken packaging.
I've been understanding of GOG "supporting" only one GNU/Linux distribution, and the little that "support" actually means.
The experience is not improving, and sooner or later my patience expires. Enough already. Where is the game I paid for?
I prefer to wait for some cool mods anyways.
There already are plenty of cool mods that were developed and tested on the beta. They should work fine (and indeed require) 3.0. So I can't use them, because GOG.
