    What? They should ask EA why they didn't hire Transgaming to ports Simcity 5 to Mac OS X. I'm afraid that people from HIB are still dreaming about selling games dedicated for Windows to Linux users? I really don't want to see CodeWeavers on the same position as Trangaming on the game market for Mac OS X.

      Does it work for anyone with intel?

      Code:
      X Error of failed request:  GLXBadFBConfig
        Major opcode of failed request:  153 (GLX)
        Minor opcode of failed request:  34 ()
        Serial number of failed request:  176
        Current serial number in output stream:  175
      I didn't find a way to find out what the numbers stand for with google (but I didn't look very long). Does it try to create a compatibility context?

        Not a game

        Dear Esther is not a game. Seriously, who cares about this port? What does it bring the Linux users?

        However, I do look forward "Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs" made by the very same studio at Frictional Games request.

              Just cause its not a traditional game doesn't mean no one wants this. I have been waiting for a long time to play this natively.

                You can say the same thing about Limbo, because that game wasn't interesting, but very controversial among Linux users. Unfortunately Limbo isn't available for Linux, so I had to play in this game on Mac OS X.


                Seriously, people shouldn't spend the money on games ported by Transgaming or CodeWeavers to Linux/Mac OS X, because these companies they always created trash instead a great games for alternative operating systems.

                  OK, who has something more stupid to say? Just say it and let us be done with it on the first topic page.
