Forum topic: Where to buy?

It's available in the chrome web store (You'll need chrome it will not run in chromium) and its free.

Well I think it's nothing bad about to show people where they can buy those classics.

Without ScummVm, DOSbox, Theme Hospital, Unreal, UT/UT2004, Arx, Syndicate & Co.would be already dead.

Just have a look at Homeword - it's great game, Game of the Year, many best notes, source is available, it has a Linux port but you can't buy it anywhere today ==> Port and Modding is dead now.

>I agree, gog refuses to offer Linux downloads for games already available

GOG will come when they are ready, they just have one simple policy:

If you buy a game on GOG for your platform it will run out-of-the box and that's something you can't currently guarantee on linux.

I agree, gog refuses to offer Linux downloads for games already available, and the Windows versions require tweaking, third-party engines and tools like wine or innoextract in the few cases where they can be transformed into Linux-native.

On the other hand, I don't know if games like Theme Hospital are available elsewhere, but the banner used now may be replaced with a external link.

IMHO only distributors with explicit Linux support deserve a banner: Desura, Steam, Humble Store, Gameolith, Fireflower, ShinyLoot, IndieGameStand and others I must be forgetting (sorry). Not sure about GamersGate.

Agreed, the search is not one of the greatest assets of It doesn't index words shorter than 4 characters and has some other flaws (doesn't find parts of words, no typo correction...) but it only really fails for 0 a.d. ;)

Stendhal 1.11: Lets party

Stendhal 1.11 was released with a big party. Celebrate in the game with costumes, food, quests, and puzzles at this year's Mine Town Revival Weeks. A paperchase quest will lead players all over the world to discover interesting places, but be careful, since kobolds and slime lurk in the mines. Other changes include icons next to NPCs, who trade items or heal, to make them easier to discover.

Thanks for feedback, I think this needs to be fixed. The funny thing is that when you enter 0 A.D. without pressing enter it does show you game entry in suggestion list.

Forum topic: Edits remove videos

This is certainly an interface bug because no videos where removed.
i will look into it.
(btw, it was a good idea to leave the notice in the moderation message!)
