  1. That solves nothing and only introduces problems when people try to apply math concepts that are "handedness" dependent in Leadwerks as right handed systems are the default in all of math and physics unless explicitly stated otherwise.. Is there any good reason why you did it? +Y can be easily achieved in right handed systems as well, as you just rotate the system as a whole. EDIT: Here Unity is left-handed too, I don't get why engine devs do this silly thing on purpose.
  2. Even without the Steam restart I can now see the standard edition showing up as DLC under Linux.
  3. I remember this very same behavior from my old rig and I absolutely do not see it with my new one. What I found out was that: a) Having any kind of web browser open in the background killed my performance, even when it wasn't doing anything b) The Leadwerks editor itself was in the way of decent performance, when I closed that and ran my projects directly via the binary I got decent performance. I think it was because of having a weak CPU but the behavior was so strange that I guess it isn't just that, it certainly isn't just the OS and drivers or even the Leadwerks engine, I sent a demo project around and was asking many Linux users for their performance reports and even weaker rigs were getting solid fps but those never ran the editor of course.

  5. They work just like every other file path: It's mounted into the same tree: For example: '/path/to/a/file' Let's forget that partitions are a thing for a moment and call everything drive, you can substitute drive for partition in this example. '/' is on your boot drive of course, let's call that drive1 for example while the 'path' folder of '/path' might be on drive2, the 'to' folder of '/path/to' might even be back on drive1 and the 'a' folder of '/path/to/a' might be an a different drive entirely like drive3. The file 'file' naturally must be on the last drive in that hierarchy. Bottom line is: You usually do not need to care about what drive you on right now, it's completely transparent. The one thing that doesn't work is hardlinking across different partitions even. The important thing with this issue is the file system: NTFS doesn't store permissions in a compatible way with the side effect of not being able to execute file on NTFS partitions and is not case sensitive, that alone is enough to throw a serious curve-ball your way. So yes, anything more than read-only file storage isn't recommended to do with NTFS on Linux. Nice to cut down on redundant storage when using a dual boot, useless for working with. My guess is that's the reason why OS X only ships a read-only NTFS driver, so you don't even get tempted to try stuff that wasn't meant to work.
  6. I can't seem to reproduce this. A shot in the dark: What file system is the project you are trying to work with saved on?

    Windows 10?

    I've been thinking it might be prudent for those that absolutely need to have a Windows installation to wait for Windows Server 2016 to release and consider that their workstation OS from that point forward, as that seems to come without the bollocks attached. That will have a serious price tag attached though but that's better than the many different ways of none-currency payment one will make for Windows 10.
  8. I know but that's mostly targeted at devs and beta testers, doesn't change the fact that it is not meant to be a desktop distro. Here it is straight from the horse's mouth: http://store.steampowered.com/steamos/
  9. Here's my take on this: Go for straight unaltered Ubuntu, I recommend 14.04 LTS for people new to the platform. Yes, it does look different than what Windows users are used to but that is a GOOD thing in my opinion, as it tells your brain that you are outside of what you are familiar with. Windows power-users often try to apply their very specific problem solving skills that did develop through trial and error and then act surprised when all the get is error. Having an interface that tells you "You are not in Kansas anymore, little Dorothy." helps with that. As for tech reasons: Mint's updater is poor compared to Ubuntu's and upgrading between releases is a pain on Mint while it's a breeze on Ubuntu. (Seriously, you can use your computer through the entire release upgrade process and after one single reboot it's done) And while Mint is technically just a spin on Ubuntu and they use the exact same base, Ubuntu and its Unity GUI are best supported by some not so well rounded software, like Leadwerks for example. You should be fine with Java, one thing to note is that basically all Linux distributions only supply OpenJDK these days as Oracle has revoked the distribution licenses for no good reason. But that shouldn't be a problem as OpenJDK has become the reference implementation for Java anyway since 1.7 with OpenJDK7. If you truly need Oracle Java you can just download it from Oracle still. OpenOffice? Why did so few people outside the open source-verse notice the fork over to LibreOffice? LibreOffice is basically OpenOffice under new and improved management and comes pre-installed on Ubuntu, 0 compatibility issues between the two. Since you appear to be German https://ubuntuusers.de/ is a your super-bestest friend now, their wiki blows every other Linux wiki out of the water, including English ones except maybe the Arch Linux wiki. https://alternativeto.net is also awesome as you can search for alternative software there in case something you want isn't supported on Linux. Use that wiki and get cracking! http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop EDIT: Bad Josh, no banana! SteamOS is not a desktop operating system, never was meant to be, probably never will be.
  10. Me jelly... I somehow feel that this is a good deal above your original budget.
  11. Is the source for the GTK plug-in you are using available?
  12. Mouse scrolling not working in most menus. This gets much more annoying than one might think. I think we talked about just trying to enable it again after some other unrelated gtk fixes. Did you ever do that internally?

    Windows 10?

    Actually they aren't. Because iOS isn't most mobile operating systems and even there Cortana isn't most of these things, just one. That's a very fatalist and uninformed opinion. You aren't victim by default and you can protect yourself. Mathematically sound encryption for example works and there's f'ck all the NSA can do about because the laws of nature and mathematics apply to everyone equally at all times. Government money can change math as little as it can wish gravity away because it's inconvenient to their agenda. That's exactly why there's currently an anti-encryption fear campaign being created in the UK and US the latter of which tried to ban exporting strong encryption back in the nineties. My nephew had two blue screens today trying to play on an N64 emulator. Besides all the privacy bollocks Windows 10 is simply unfinished software imho. Just look at the classic control panel and settings, if it was done, everything would be in settings now.
  14. Any new info on that? I see there were some responses.
  15. Finally, seems to work well.
