Would you want GoldSrc to come to Linux?
I was curious if anyone knows if Valve is porting GoldSrc over to linux as well? I know it already has OpenGL support so thats one obstical somewhat out of the way. I feel it probably wont simply because of its age. But hopefully CS 1.6 can carry enough weight to justify the conversion.

I personally would love to see it come to linux as there are still many (not a butt ton) but enough people that still play on GoldSrc based games (Cs 1.6, TFC, DoD, HLDM). I was also thinking of putting back up some HLDM / CS1.6 / DoD servers for friends and some of my 'nostalgic' gamer friends that are also looking forward to steam coming to linux.

I know i'd want it. Atleast for Sven Coop, imo. For me porting old games and making everything possible available on Linux is a big pull for going 100% linux. Nostalgia is very important in my book.

No doubt.
CS1.6 would be one of the only reasons I would ever boot into windows.
Sven Coop is also a necessary thing, as it's so freaking fun.

i would rather valve try to get the current (and *cough* new) game engine working, it would be ok, but i think everyone would prefer better new games than the sweat to port goldsrc over

HL Source shows that Source can do the same as GldSrc. They could just release GoldSrc games unmodified with Source. Like a CS 1.6 Source and stuff like that. They could as well port the engine, but it's not likely. They didn't do it for the mac either.

No. I want valve to work over the new games, not old ones. GoldSrc works perfectly on wine and it is old as f*ck.

Yes, please! It wouldn't really require much work as previously stated.
At least I don't think. :P

I'm playing Condition Zero so it would be great to get this game into Linux. Also, if Valve have no time to port it, they can open sources of GldSrc as id did, so users could port it themselves and add to Greenlight

A GoldSrc Port would go a long way towards using Linux on my main gaming machine.

I concur, CS 1.6 is a great game, and the Half Life series wouldn't be complete (which is kinda sad).

Yeah absolutely. For me it would make dual booting almost unnecessary. Wine is not really sufficient for multiplayer.

I think they may as well stick to the newer engines. I'd like to see goldensource come to linux but I think that Valve probably has good plans for whatever is happening in general with Steam/Linux. I feel like the buzz about Steam/Big Picture on Linux being a possible segway to a "Steambox" makes sense and if that's the case, then Linux may be in for more treats then Mac. ^_^
