and now that a new owner is taking them all

But they're E2E encrypted? I don't understand the issue here.

HKayn ,
@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

But the entire point of E2EE is that you don't need to trust them.

There's a point to be made for web apps, but with their client apps, the source code that encrypts your data is right there.

It's already illegal if your content is large enough to be copyrightable.

Don't hope, be prepared. Back up your games.

Thanks Reddit. I'll continue to not provide any content since I shredded everything pre-enshitification. ( sh.itjust.works )

This just makes me angry. You need to write comments and get likes before you’re able to make posts. Most of the posts in that community could pass as boomer-Facebook-posts from what I’ve seen. The quality definitely went more downhill than Tony Hawk‘s Downhill Jam....

How else do you expect the moderators of that sub to keep out raiders and spam bots?

The last major holdout that is also financially dependant on Google. Chromium has consumed the internet in all but name.

Thing is, people don't need the Discord experience. People need the people and servers that are on Discord.

That's hardly React's fault. Blame the web devs to jump into making websites after having completed a 2-week React bootcamp and nothing else.

Welcome to Lemmy. You may only advocate for Firefox.

Well, in that case you should never publish your code anywhere.

By that logic, is not updating for several months incorrect behaviour?

If so, that would be quite problematic, since even other rolling distros like Tumbleweed don't have this problem.

The issue is that the majority of people on the Fediverse are "techies" with specific interests, which skews the spectrum of content quite a bit.

The Fediverse is in an awkward spot. It needs more people like you to keep technology communities from becoming Linux circlejerks, but at the same time those circlejerks are driving people like you out.

How is Valve using Proton a grey area?

You perfectly demonstrated why people will never listen to you. Think about it, you'll get it.

Didn't take long for instancism to become a thing here, huh

Honestly it's a great way to get people who just read the title to self-report.

That's obviously not what OP was referring to when mentioning "Firefox Themes".

@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

No one in the comments seems to consider that this could very well be an additional revenue stream that GOG desperately needs.

HKayn ,
@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

Then just pretend it doesn't exist. I don't understand how this affects the GOG userbase. All that happens is people speculate about how GOG is out to kill DRM-freedom.

HKayn ,
@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

What are you talking about? GOG has been involved with Amazon for a long time now, and so far it has been exclusively beneficial for GOG users.

HKayn ,
@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

I don't think the person you replied to actually knows what they're talking about.

HKayn ,
@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

Do you think comments like these are swaying public opinion in your favor?

"How do you know someone's a Firefox user? Don't worry, they'll tell you"

People don't actually care about the article, they're just here to circlejerk about their hate for commercial software.

You can use the Heroic Games Launcher, which runs GOG games through Proton, offers automatic updates and integrates with GOG cloud saves.

Buying games on GOG through their launcher also gives them a cut of the money!

HKayn ,
@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

There's little to no business incentive for other launchers to add support for an OS used only by approx. 1.7% of PC gamers.

HKayn ,
@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

GOG is tiny compared to Valve. They simply don't have the resources to invest in Linux R&D. Expecting them to do so is futile.

HKayn ,
@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

It's in their latest release notes: https://github.com/Heroic-Games-Launcher/HeroicGamesLauncher/releases/tag/v2.13.0

It's also featured on their donate page: https://heroicgameslauncher.com/donate

@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

What can you tell me about their refund policy?

You can refund any purchase within 30 days. There are no restrictions on playtime, since GOG can't feasibly control that.

You can get your refund either as store credit or to the payment method you used, however store credit is usually processed much faster.

Are the results on ProtonDB just as reliable for GOG versions as they are for Steam versions of games?

I can only vaguely answer this by saying the games that I tried (mainly indie games like Dead Cells and One Step from Eden) worked flawlessly.

Heroic Games Launcher has a Mastodon presence, so you can ask them there! https://mastodon.social/@heroiclauncher

You'd be doubling your building, testing and supporting efforts for a ~1.8% increase in sales at best.

Granted, these numbers are just rough estimates based on Steam's hardware survey, but that's the ballpark we're finding ourselves in.

@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

I'm confused. I opened the first 6 issues featured in your lemmy-ui link and you closed them all yourself?

Can we please not editorialize news titles?

@protonprivacy how do you view the files created by:

I used it on Linux and it gave me hundreds of .json and .eml files. How do I view them in an easier format? The file names don't help either.

Quoting the very article you linked yourself:

Multiple people on here have already tried to tell them.

I could never get the hang of motion inputs in Street Fighter, so this is definitely intriguing me. Can't wait to play it.

The spammers are using a limited number of scraped Fediverse actors, which also included a handful of Lemmy communities.

If you weren't part of that list, you were mostly safe.

This community has a heavy bias against Windows. Expect more of those kinds of headlines to show up in here.

I did it too. Most of my contacts were not willing to switch. My colleagues at work stayed in their WhatsApp group, and many of my close friends did too. I essentially cut myself off from most of my social circles and threw myself into social isolation. Not a good time.

I ended up rejoining WhatsApp and concluded that in this instance, my mental health is more valuable than the privacy I gain by not participating in WhatsApp.

@HKayn@dormi.zone avatar

All the people that reply saying "But it is easy, I did it" fail to realize that their personal circumstances can't just be applied to everyone else.
