Happy to see some Carmageddon news

Does the Gog version of Max Damage support multiplayer?

If yes, i assume that player of the gog version couldn't play with the player of the steam version, am i right?

Does this version fix some of the bugs present in the final steam version ?

Thanks

So those of us waiting for the DRM free version get some kind of GOG passcode to get this with no charge ?

Or even some kind of discount ?

Backers got an email off the kickstarter update with proper instructions to get it for free.

Nope, there are at least a couple of other changes. A changelog should be made available later

It is only big news if the changes are big changes, no? Hopefully shane can supply a changelog in a bit and then everyone can be disappointed that their own personal bugbear hasn't been fixed.

Wow, I've been waiting for it so many years. I'd love to play newest Carmageddon without Steam and internet connection. As a Paypal donator I had to find old email from Humble Bundle dated at march 2014, requested key once more and now I have it on GOG too, thanks!

it's ok. good thing the week is over. But yeah, it could be big news, but its probably tricky, announcing minor bugfixes might upset people, thinking its not enough. And tbh its probably too late anyway.

ah well, it was nice to be excited again even for a very shot time :)

Excellent news! Thank you, Stainless!

I am a paypal backer and I haven't received any mail yet but I was able to get the key from humble bundle even though I do not have an account there.

Paypal backers: Go there: https://www.humblebundle.com/resender and enter your email and then you can get the link to the drm-free GOG version.

Feels good to see Max Damage in my GOG account :)

Thanks again, everybody!

Woah, pretty unexpected.

Could we also be getting (paid) dlc?

I would love to play some new maps.

Would also love to finally play it on the penguin.

Please tell - why in GOG-shop there is no Russian version of Max Damage?

I bought a CR in April-May 2014 and would like to have a backup of the MD is not on Steam.

Is it unreasonable to ask why would the gog version not also be free for those that already bought max damage on steam?

Why must I pay for the game a second time, if I already have proof of owning it on steam already?

Being DRM Free means it's easily obtainable from torrent trackers, so why must I grab it from torrents just to get drm free, when I already own Max Damage on steam?

There should be a gog page where I log in with my steam account and connect the two of them and then just have the gog site identify my copy of max damage on steam and spit out a free download of max damage for me...

Is that purposely not happening or it just can't be done?

Also, what's the deal with the Updated DRM free version? What's changed from the steam version?

I saw some posts made some months ago in this topic, about an update log but nobody bothered to post it.

Is the DRM free version in any way shapre or form, superior to the steam version or is the lack of steam the only benefit to this version?

You're thinking of GOG Connect https://www.gog.com/connect but I don't think CMD is part of the available game list.

Expecting a company to deliver for free something you bought in another company doesn't make sense indeed. The idea behind GOG Connect is to motivate people to start building a little game library on their platform with selected titles. As GOG's business is partly based on the DRM free delivery, I guess it is not in their best interest to give any title from their catalog for free if the customer got it elsewhere. Imagine doing that in real life :)

So yeah, only KS backers could get it for free via GOG. There's no benefit to this version beside the DRM free aspect. The log only relates to GOG installer and Galaxy stuff IIRC.
