Hey all. If any of you are into half life - then you will know that you can play half life, on linux, almost without flaw. If you are into half life, you will know that steam, is Valve softwares latest incaration.
Steam, does not work correctly, or to the standerd we expect with wine, nor with winex. I have had no luck with it at all.
Now, the purpose of this post, is that I would like to head up a development team, to create a steam client, so us linux users can play half life ( and mods ). Obviously, if this could be pulled off, a hell of a lot of people, would be very happy, half life is an excelent game, and linux is an excelent os.
There are two routes that can be taken with this, first is to create a steam client, from scratch. Second is to use a Wine stripdown - and emulate the steam executable. The latter option would be easier by all means, to get the game / some other options working
However, I dont want to rush into this to start with, im not sure of its possible - steam uses a lot of anti cheat / cypto ( md5 ) / and version managment software, which could possibly be very hard to crack. Which is why Im first asking the more experienced developers out there, do you think is possible ?
