Subject: A noob's guide to install firgirl repacks on linux
Note: i am using pop os which is ubuntu based so this method might work for u it might won't, it works for me but you can always try also i am not a linux power user myself this guide is a compiled version of many many threads and articles i used to make it work out as there is not a single compiled guide available online i thought people might need especially those who are new to linux and linux gaming like me.
Arch based users can try protonfit i don't know if it works as i was't just smart enough to calibrate it according to my distro.
once installed open wine cmd using
wine cmd and execute these following commands
Z:\home\foo>echo %temp% C:\users\foo\Temp> --> this is not a command its the output
After that use
winecfg and change the wine windows version to windows xp as fitgirl setup usually hangs on a certain point due to admin permission using windows xp will hopefully solve it (its mentioned in fitgirl website in troubleshooting section)
here the initials done now comes the actual installation
> cd to the directory in which u downloaded the repack and use
wine setup.exe to run the setup
> tick limit installer to use 2gb ram if available
> Installer default folder path will be "C:\Games\NieR - Automata" do not change it, your games will be stored in "/home/<YOUR\_USERNAME>/.wine/drive_c/Games/" you will later need this to trouble shoot ur games
> untick create desktop option to avoid any complications in future
> now installer will ask whether to update and install directx || c++redsit || physx || .NET i would recommend to tick that as it will installs those once game unpacking is done anyway (note sometimes setup is not able to download files and crashes if this happens untick those options and launch the setup again, u can later install those by using winetricks)
> now installer will start unpacking files, fitgirls installation can take more than 7 hours! to install if you have a laptop make sure ur power settings is set to never to sleep/suspend, also if u have a low end laptop/pc i would recommend to set screen timeout to never as if setup gets freezed between installation u won't be stuck on lock screen
Once installation is done you can launch games using lutris (u can change the windows version now once the installation is done as lutris will use wine too to run the games)
> go to add new game
> browse the executable which is usually in /home/<your\_username>/.wine/drive_c/Games/game_name
lutris settings may vary to launch the game sometimes u have to turn on Fsync to be able to launch the game
if ur game throws error of missing .net framework u can install it using winetricks, i would recommend installing 3.5 and latest version as some games use old .NET version to run
Troubleshooting ur game:
most probably any windows tutorial abt trouble shooting game will work in wine for example i used this tutorial for arkham asylum "could not load file directx.direct3d" error
That's it, thanks for reading till the end, i hope it works out for you too

Subject: Anyway of getting a 'Free' legal copy of Win10/11?
I remember back in the day. I got a copy off the digital river (is that still a thing?), cracked it, then used the free update window to jump to Win 10.
Is it possible to do stuff like that at the moment? My Nephew in-law is getting a new comp but it's without an O.S and we're trying to do this on the cheap. He has Win10 on his previous computer. Anyway to transfer it or do it the other way. Ideally we don't want a cracked copy as it'll be on his main comp.

Subject: Ethics/Legality on using music production VST plugins from developers who are no longer active?
Hi all, my question is specifically in regards to music production software made by developers who are permanently gone, whose plugins are impossible to acquire through legal means. For example, Linplug. Or perhaps even old software that's no longer provided by companies which are still active, like the old Native Instruments piano Kontakt libraries (assuming you legally own Kontakt).
What are your thoughts on the legality and morality of pirating plugins/software like this, when you're willing to pay for it but there is genuinely no way to? From personal use to commercial use. What are your thoughts?
In my mind, if there's genuinely no legal way to acquire, there shouldn't be morality issues (of course, legality is entirely different and I feel like I can safely assume that if word got out, I'd almost definitely get sued). I mean, what am I supposed to do, build a time machine and relive years of my life just to get a plugin? Haha. Anyway, thanks for reading and participating, should you choose to. Much love.
Update: On second thought, I probably should've titled this post differently considering it applies to all creative software by permanently inactive developers. Whoops.
Subject: Why are new movies never leaked?
Why do new movies not appear on torrent or other movie streaming sites before its released either on dvd or streaming services? I mean there are tens of thousands of movie theaters around the world who probably have the original movie in their hands. I would imagine at least one employee would leak the movie. But only after they release it on Netflix or other services that the pirated movie sites can get the actual movie itself and not some crappy version that was filmed in the theater with people passing by. I feel like I'm missing a cruical detail about this whole thing. What am I missing?Why can't I find quality versions of new movies right away as they come out?

Subject: Pirating stuff I can "stream"
Have any of you been in a situation where even though you have a subscription to a streaming service you still end up pirating?
I use Linux as my daily driver and for some god-awful reason, Amazon Prime Video doesn't support HD streaming on the OS.
Initially, the model to beat piracy was convenient, it's worth the money to buy Spotify because I don't need to search through torrents/sites to find a single song and organize it myself. Now it's so bad that when I had the content freely available I still need to torrent.
