Since this is basically an extended introduction of myself, I'll link it on Mastodon, and pin it. I can also edit it in the future, unlike introduction posts (though I can still remake those).

@hajduc Oh hewo. OwO
I'm curious, how do you connect to Re-Volt championships from a *nix machine? Just Wine?
I've been throwing around the idea of a Flatout 2 tournament, but am still too lazy to figure out the networking part of it.

@hajduc And it has proper servers I suppose, not just GameSpy and LAN?

@csepp Hosts need to use port forwarding, but you can connect to those without any extra apps. Events are usually listed on the site and in the main Discord (on the site: online -> upcoming events).

@hajduc Aw hec, apparently it's not a libre port. Ah well.

@csepp You mean FLOSS? Yea, there are still closed source parts, it just uses open source libraries. I believe this is due to certain concerns, as the community code was once stolen by the company who acquired the rights to the game. :c

@hajduc That seems silly, if it's under GPL then the sources are protected. If it's under BSD, then there is no "stealing", they gave it away.

@csepp it was not open source, they just published the executables on GoG is what I meant. But I don't know the exact story.
