Quote from: dinx2582 on February 03, 2010, 06:08:44 PMAlso, Unreal Tournament isn't being programmed by one single person, nor was it (or Braid) written entirely in flash, so that's not even close to a fair comparison. It's a ridiculous comparison, for that matter. The issue isn't about promises, the issue is that flash support for Linux is crap. Flash 10, at the very least anyway. You want to blame someone? Blame Adobe for screwing around when it comes to Linux flash support. After all: he wrote the game in their language(s), and it uses their interpreter(s). Obviously it's not a programming error on Terry's part, because it works well on Win32/OSX more or less out of the box, and considering how close OSX is to Linux by nature, it's very clearly an issue of Adobe neglecting the problem of generally inadequate support for the Linux platform, regardless of their reasoning.But like I said, it works perfectly fine in Wine, so I think your reasoning is silly. Then again, if it's not good enough for you, then you're missing out on a fucking awesome game. Oh well. Sucks for you.
