Linux Client - Multiplayer incompatibility

Recommended Posts

Why can people with the Linux client still not connect to the larger multiplayer network?

Almost nobody is running legacy servers for Linux users, so almost nobody is playing this game on Linux either... If you're gonna make the effort to port this game to Linux, at least also make the effort to let the Linux players play with their Windows using friends...

 

I would understand if there was some huge feature incompatibility here, but we're talking about a constant difference of 2 minor release versions. This is not some insurmountable barrier, especially since you're not letting Linux catch up on purpose and have it fixed at being 2 minor releases behind. It's pretty infuriating...

They are connecting to the same multiplayer network as anyone else. Aka the Steam Query service.

Linux users can't play with windows users because the game versions are different. Different versions are incompatible with eachother.

There is. Hence the different game versions.

Right now we are one major release off. Minor updates don't really exist. Hotfixes happen very rarely.

Bohemia isn't making the port.

 

 

All your questions are probably answered here: https://dev.arma3.com/ports

It's a experimental beta test.
