      Lutris > gog as source > set proton as a runner (or wine, or whatever else if specific games require it, like FFXIV)

        I tried this for a while and it was incredibly janky. Heroic launcher is a night and day difference.

      The ship has sailed about 4 times now, gog galaxy on Linux has constantly been at the top of requests but we made a stinky about the Witcher 2 so gog and epic will forever hold the community as not worth it. Now the community has done the leg work they have no reason to mess about with translating all those .net calls

      They barely “support” Windows, they aren’t rally a software dev company, they are just sell you the actual game (unlike Valve etc).

      And that is precious, the world needs companies that help restore some equality on the market.

      And also what Nothing said.

        CD Projekt is very much a software dev. I’m not sure why you would think they are not.

          Well, they’re a game developer. And they own GOG. GOG as a subsidiary is a digital distributor of prepackaged digital content. Developing a system that allows people to find a digital item, pay for it, and then download it, is hilariously, vastly different than developing a compatibility layer for games developed for one operating system to run on another. Like…the former is straight up just basic web development. The latter is hardcore systems programming. They are worlds apart.

            1Yes, exactly. Two different things.
            And both great at what they do.

            One can’t just equate devs.
            Its like grandma wanting me to fix her computer because I ‘also have a computer at work’.
