Change "download demo" button
« on: 11 Feb 2018, 07:48 »
On the AGS website, if you tag a game as commercial, then the "download game" button becomes a "download demo" button. However, numerous commercial games do not have a demo. It would be nice if there were more option for this, e.g. "open store" or "purchase from Steam".

I've been meaning to ask. Could we add a Linux button in addition to the windows one?

I can make the buttons if needed.

I'm currently working refactoring the website.  I'll try to take your requests into account!

Please don't make it one of these friggin' "tablet sites", with five words and a 1080p image of actors smiling every scroll.

+1 on the suggestions. (nod)

Found it rather hard to figure out which commercial games had a demo and which didn't.

Refactoring, not redesigning!

Sorry to bump this thread again, but I'm again having the same problem as last year. I find a commercial game, click the "download demo" and I'm sent to a site where there is no demo. >:(

All game types now open a modal, showing the various operating system and download type options.  For freeware games it's download link and mirror link, for commercial games it's store page link and demo link.  Each of these types can be repeated per platform.
