      is it possible for LGP and the linux gaming community to collaborate this way: the community commits an amount of money / prepays LGP to see a port done the named studio will be assured that they'll the money a minimum amount of money for a port

        That might not be a bad idea. The problem is that it is rather difficult to come up with the required money to acquire the licenses that those studios would accept for the porting to be done. Unless Michael and Svartalf plead to everybody that reads Phoronix. Then maybe we might come up with a portion of it. LGP would have to still absorb quite a bit of the licensing cost.

        • I concur. That is a great idea.

          Gabe recently had a piece similar to this.

            • Not a gamerequest, but could you please pass the keyinput to the windowsmanager in futur games.
              This will allow alt-tabbing and volumecontrol while ingame.
              It's possible in HoN and Yo Franky
