Yet another game released under the Carmageddon banner and still no word about Linux support for Reincarnation.

You will never get linux because Stainless is clearly struggling to stay alive at this point and they are not really doing a great job at it.
How on earth can you imagine they are still crazy enough to shell out cash for a linux port that is most likely not going to bring them any more income, when their best bet to earn some cash was that miserable free to play carmageddon: crashers?

So a few months later still nothing, unsurprisingly.

Wine 2.18 now supports DX11. Games like World of Warcraft work beautifully in DX11 mode so I tried C:R. No luck and the debug in wine doesn't even give a meaningful error message.

*sigh*, still waiting.

Can stainless at least contact the Wine developers with the possibility of getting C:R working under that? It's not ideal but at least Linux backers could play the game we've been waiting for for the past 5 years.

@stainless:
This is simply fraud and deception. We paid for something you did not deliver.
If you're broke and can not afford to develop a proper linux port, at least make the DRM-free
WIN version available.

And please don't ever again start a project with other peoples money.
You sirs have not any honor nor pride.

Its not fraud , not even by a longshot.
Mismanagement, maybe.

A important part of Kickstarter is that a finished resault is not guaranteed as long as the devs did not fail to deliver on purpose no rule has been broken.
Its a pain , lack of communication and details are frustrating.

At some point they said they would make the Linux version after CR is feature complete , CR became CMD and it went on pause temporarily to work on Crashers but will have work on it resume (if its not the case already)

I belive that when they resume work it will be a bunch of new features to for all platforms to celebrate the Linux port.

If they went bankrupt they would have told us , or at least made some form of statement regarding it.

I honestly am worried about the state of Carma but not much can be done , you might be able to contact them on Twitter for a more direct response
