    I ask since this there is still open source code being shared here, even if it uses proprietary systems. If we take another project as an example, OpenRCT2 could be also be considered a wrapper around a closed source commercial product, but I'd consider that to be perfectly valid as there's a lot of open source value/substance there, hence my thinking this should revolve around value/substance rather than not allowing projects that wrap non-open-source work. If moderation is expected, then it will be somewhat up to the mods to make that judgment of value/substance.

    Have a look at https://github.com/OpenRCT2/OpenRCT2 maybe, we do mark some issues as beginner friendly and we had quite a few folks before who basically started out without knowing anything about C++, so in case you want to contribute don't hesitate to contact us on Discord if you have questions or need some assistance.
  • OpenRCT2 v0.4.4 released!
    5 projects | /r/rct | 28 Mar 2023
    I have signed a contract with backtrace.io a few years back, they provide us with crash reporting service. When I signed, I thought "oh well, we might get a report here and there, nothing fancy". 4000 issues later (https://github.com/OpenRCT2/OpenRCT2/labels/backtrace.io) I stand corrected.

    See wiki page on Android: https://github.com/OpenRCT2/OpenRCT2/wiki/Android. i have some ideas on how to streamline the process, but never enough time or motivation.

  • Which of these should I click on? I'm not super computer savvy and trying to do this by myself. Also, any other advice before I get to the next steps?

    They both got to the same URL, so thankfully it doesn't matter: https://github.com/OpenRCT2/OpenRCT2/releases/download/v0.4.3/OpenRCT2-0.4.3-windows-installer-x64.exe

    Ugh, this list is a mess - literally everything is listed twice, so there are 8 entries when there should only be 4. If you look at the github release, there are correctly only four windows downloads (excluding symbols): https://github.com/OpenRCT2/OpenRCT2/releases/tag/v0.4.3
