LOL, well luckily, we're not CryTek. xD

Jokes aside, not sure if a 60MB game can have those cool effects

DirectX is not platform independent and would require a complete rewrite of the graphics code.
I don't see it ever happening.

I dont know if this shader thing really needs an opengl game, as I understood it just polishes up the game output, but needs opengl to do it? Correct me if I am wrong.

The C Programming Language: combines the flexibility of assembly language with the power of assembly language.

There is a lot of graphics code...
This would be a massive effort to make it non-cross platform. I play on linux a lot so I will not be helping to remove the cross-compatibility.

The main reason why I even got into ACR in the first place was because I was looking for games that I could play on Linux. If this game gets into some kind of software center for Linux, it could become extremely popular. It can probably also be compiled for Mac, making it playable by even more people. You want to throw that away for some kool shaders?

I do all of my programming on Linux. If this happens I won't be able to test or program any new features. TortoiseGit and Code::Blocks are a poor substitute for vim and all of the GNU utilities IMO.
