    Oooh, flamebait to an Englishman if ever I saw it, next thing you'll be saying kick out the queen and get a president ;)
    Are you serious?? Most journo's got into the job for the free stuff.
    I'll...

    Just been reading up on it, there really isn't anything to run (recent) mac apps on linux, it sounds crazy but there it is. Various reasons, Cocoa and Carbon are at the top of the list but the whole...

    Strange that, wine gets a huge amount of attention but there isn't a similar project for mac apps (at last, nothing high profile). A common layer for mac and linux games, like directX in windows,...

    Is this right? I was wondering, if linux could run mac games natively then it would make life a lot easier for game developers, publishers etc.
    Do mac ports use quartz or are they SDL, OpenGL/AL...

    Does anyone know off the top of their heads if either the 'intel' or 'i810' modules can support shaders? As to the DRM, there is a 20 page long thread to bash this one out in but as far as the postal...

    Ah s**t, that ruins everything. But at $20 for such a well made game why would anyone bother copying it ;)
  7. Definitely getting this, really well made and...

    Definitely getting this, really well made and very funny :) Had to copy 2 supplied libs into /usr/lib and run ldconfig as root but that's probably just my system. Ran perfectly on a dual core 2160...

    Good point, the whole image could do with a going over. Take the startup of any game, all the companies involved have big, bold logo's flashing up that scream 'were great', then along comes LGP's...

    Isn't that a contradiction in terms ? 'nope, everything tests ok, there just doesn't seem to be any signals...' ;) On a more serious note... I have done a bit with input device drivers and really...

    Ok, there are a lot of unusual circumstances around this case (as there are in so many others), but it's a file system for f***'s sake, not a thermonuclear device or a way to crash the financial...

    Sorry for going of topic with this post but I came across this while reading up on DRM issues and the business model of this music site is the best I have seen yet for promoting unknown artists:...

    Just poking a bit of fun in the name of seeing it from all sides :) I'm not arguing with the report, quite the opposite and your quote above is all the proof anyone could need
  13. I'm sorry LGP are keeping track of the figures...

    I'm sorry LGP are keeping track of the figures and can only see the 'doom and gloom' side of them, I don't think many of the DL's equate to lost sales but each and every one that gets played equates...

    A report by a bunch of hippy students in London is going to be biased too, the 12 DL's increasing sales by 0.44 CD's sounds very suspect to me ;) I have found that P2P has changed purchasing though,...

    I'll second that, the hard drive industry gets a lot of business from folks who just buy them to fill them up with 'free' stuff that may never even get used. I screwed up with the 'surprised bit, I...

    It is an awful lot of money but it makes the assumption that all of those downloads equate to lost sales. Aside from folks DL'ing the game that may later buy it I would be surprised if 10% of the...

    There are an awful lot of assumptions on that review and the overall assumption regarding pirated games and the number of sales lost seems ridiculously high to me. I'm sure folks would like to see...

    I was wary of saying mentioning any elite clone earlier but it would get my attention, great and timeless game, enhanced with openGL 2 graphics too it would get a huge amount of attention. Definitely...

    Earth 2150 and redneck rampage are 2 which may be simpler to get rights to.

    Nice idea, its true games used to put some effort into the box contense, cant remember the last time I saw a game in one of the paper-ream sized boxes. I wouldn't go for it myself though if there was...
