This is what happens when Epic Games buy your studio: a big FUCK YOU to all non-Windows gamers, particularly Linux ones:
https://www.rocketleague.com/news/ending-support-for-mac-and-linux/
https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22133431

This is sad and yet outrageous, considering that it comes from the same game company whose asshole CEO is willing to buy exclusives with his allmighty checkbook, and who compares Linux gamers to people opposing certain controversial politicians.

Fuck Tim Sweeney, this guy deserves nothing but shit on his face for what he is doing with Epic Games Store.
No, you don't buy goodwill with libraries full of free games noone is going to play anyway.

Yet I still religiously tune in for my Free Gaems, which go in my collection. They even mostly run OK on Linux, thanks to Lutris, and about a Bajillion hacks. Of course, I'm not playing any of the anti-cheat-packed ones.

Psyonix revealed why they did it: Because they are upgrading the graphics backend (from DX9 to DX11) and don't feel that upgrading the OpenGL wrapper/backend for feature parity is worth it for a small part of their customer base). Still a bit dumb, but at least you can vaguely understand it.

Epic actually gave $25,000 to the Lutris project (from their MegaGrants program for funding projects that are useful to game devs/gamers) proving that Tim Sweeney doesn't hate Linux users (he's just extremely ambivalent about them).

So the future of Linux gaming is compatibility layers and emulation, instead of native binaries taking full advantage of the host platform? That's horrible, to say it politely - sounds a lot like the "let's write everything in Javascript because native is TOO EXPENSIVE!!!" we get on desktop/mobile nowadays.

...guess it's time to give up gaming for good :/

To be fair: I do understand the small market share, developer resources, the fact Linux is a very heterogeneous/fragmented platform, and ROI considerations, but still I really hate being swept under the rug because it happens that I'm a rounding error since I chose to "think different" - it's a matter of principle.

Sorry but Tim already burned that bridge with his prior remarks on the Linux gaming public (seriously, mixing POLITICS with videogames?!?!?!), badly. No free game will ever convince me to give it a chance to EGS.

IIRC, that quote was in the context of someone suggesting "use linux" in response to him griping about Microsoft and their store/Windows 10 S (which only let you run apps from the store) potentially enabling locking out Windows as a "open" software platform. Of course, this ignores the fact that earlier version(s) of windows without support for existing, non walled-garden apps (Windows RT, the aforementioned Windows 10 S [which backpedaled to a "S Mode" in regular Windows 10 after it flopped]) have failed miserably. (count the number of canceled Windows RT devices!)

Edited for some minor grammar and readability issues.

Today is 02/02/2020 -- the First Global Palindrome Day in 909 Years
202002022002 is a sexy timestamp for your backups, just sayin'
(Next one will be on 2121/12/12, just over 101 years in the future. Half of the planet should be gone for that date)

And it also just happens that "20200202" is a pretty fancy serial number for a banknote:
- Radar (the term collectors use for palindromic serials)
- Binary (only two unique digits!)
- 3-digit bookend ("202" is both at the beginning and end)
- And the kicker: birthdate!
My handy catalog says any piece with this serial is UNIQUE AS HELL, aka "serious money".

> proprietary Javascript bloat

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS!?!??!?!

I guess gotta get used to isolation, between my limited connectivity nowadays AND the fact people is migrating to really awful platforms.
Whatsapp, Discord, other proprietary "I AM A CELLPHONE" messaging shits... this is a sad decade for the Internet (and for my personal sanity).

...

Anyway, enjoy an error replacement banknote - in other words, an unicorn.
You have to really screw it up when you error out a piece meant to replace another error.
Dear Thomas de la Rue, you're drunk, stay at the pub!

Yeah. I set up a discord account recently because everyone on every IRC channel I'm in moved there, and it turns out I like people more than I hate Discord. :(

Remember that ill-fated Sonic movie that had to go back to the drawing board after Paramount released that vomit-inducing trailer? Apparently they've hit the right key with its revised version, and just got their License To Print Money™!

A sequel is already in the works?! People also liked Jim Carey as Eggman - I'm still not convinced but, eh, I'm no cinema guy. In the meanwhile, Sega just won this round in the eternal Sega vs. Nintendo console wars that never really ended :D

And now we wait for Nintendo to reveal their second take on a Mario movie, a 3d animated one made by Illumination (Yes, the Minions studio) set for release in 2022. Which sounds like a futuristic year when you say it out loud, but anyways.

Since it's animated, I can picture it being a lot closer to the games this time. Though I could see Illumination trying to shove in a new character in there

It's three files per table involved.
