Hello Epic Team and Tim Sweeney
Please. Help the GNU/Linux (gnux) community and please support the Launcher. So many people asking in the #ue4linux channel about it and we are always sad to give them a disappointing answer. There are already so many Threads/Posts about this topic in the forums too but it seems not really getting clearly heard. We get always the same answer: Not the priority atm.
Well, yes and we all know about market-share and about profit etc. but isn’t the philosophy behind making Unreal Engine 4 “free” the freedom for everyone having the opportunity to use it and make awesome stuff and at the end everyone benefits and yes especially Epic Games. There are so many possible customer you seem not to care or see maybe.
We know that some people having issues when they just hear the word GNU and/or LINUX. Why? Practically it is just another OS which has the potential to become useful for everyone in one way or another. The community helped already so much to make the UE4 Editor possible on gnux. So please can you help the community in the manner.
If not the launcher, why not making the Marketplace Website so that the content is downloadable? Or how about making the launcher so that it can run with wine? Or better, if there are some parts of the Launcher which makes difficulties (on gnux) I am sure the community will help you with everything they can if Epic doesn’t have the time to invest in it.
I believe in the awesomeness of Epic because you did already so many cool things. Please amaze us more, with the launcher.
Sorry for my humble way of writing.
