    Phoronix: Counter-Strike Source Now On Steam For Linux

    Counter-Strike 1.6 for Linux was released towards the end of January while this evening Counter-Strike Source has finally been brought to Linux over Steam...

    Looks like I should have done a bit more research before posting. Autodesk Scaleform already supports Linux right now, check out the integration page (http://gameware.autodesk.com/scaleform/integrations).

    Which is great. It means this shouldn't be a reason CS:GO wouldn't be ported. Very exciting, I'm really hoping CS:GO does get ported, it and Skyrim are my favorite games.

    well... I did not know that.

    It makes sense for artists to use Flash editor, and it looks like Autodesk Scaleform is it's own implementation of Flash Renderer (supporting 10.1 and AS2/3), so as long as it supports OpenGL then portability shouldn't really be a problem. I would have thought most AAA game UIs where made in Max/Maya/etc, but It's true many 2D effects are easier to create with masks and gradient tools (plus you have ActionScript). Still.. there's nothing stopping anyone from making a great UI in Blender on Linux for future games :-) and it doesn't look like Scaleform would/should be a big reason not to port major games to Linux (as far as I can tell)... depending on how fancy Scaleform's getting with it's ActionScript VM...

More 3d effects, shadows, etc. 'Flash' has been a very popular choice for gui's and menu's for a long time now.
    Skyrim is another AAA-title that relies on some version of Scaleform/Flash.

    Haha, damn vbulletin for not telling there are new posts. Also damn vbulletin for having broken editing and deleting posts in Opera.

    Ignore above post.

    It's Autodesk Scaleform, IIRC.

    The library you're talking about is scaleform.

    If it is true, I really hope they're looking into alternatives to Flash for their HUD. CS:GO is, and has always been, my #1 anticipated game for Linux (if it's in the works). It would be really sad to hear it isn't being ported due to something like that.

    This sucks, wish this came out while I was waiting for TESV-Dragonborn (PlayOnLinux with steam version works flawless)... Now my spare time is shot to shit.
    I dunno, $5 or so. I don't mean to sound like a cheapskate but I reckon I'd seriously barely play them. And also I've spent more on Linux games in the past few months than I have on Windows in the last year or so LOL. It's worth it though.
