Various doubts about Superpowers

Hi, i have some doubts:

  1. Is possible to run Superpowers in a 32-bit machine using Lubuntu 16.04? (Lubuntu is an Ubuntu "flavor" that uses LXDE as gui)
  2. Can i use my own version (or fork) of Superpowers for an Indie Game Studio? (i mean, legally, is there an obstacle for that in the license)
  3. Is there a chance to use the Steamworks API in Superpowers as plugin or something?
  4. What are the minimum requirements for using Superpowers?
      1. I have a "rig" (got it for free, can't complain) with: An Intel Celeron D (2.13 Ghz), in a ASRock P4VM800 Motherboard with a RAM slot (512 Mb DDR 400 Mhz), with an Nvidia Geforce4 MX 440, and HDD SATA 80Gb Western DIgital.

    2. Basically no one cares, for example, many game maker tool forked from Cocos2D-x, but if I have to do this I may choose a Lua basedone

    4.It's really fun to see an old rig stil up and running, I have a atom N2760 which can run Chrome and most superpowers 2D and 3D games. I also have an old desktop with P4 and GF5200 which runs many games well.

    Yes you can use your own version.No problem with that (just dont forget to tell this is a fork of superpowers).

    Thanks for the responses, after a deep investigation and testing, i went able to run some superpowers test games in that old rig, but the editor... it cannot even open a test 2d platform game. The main problem was the GPU that requires the privative NVIDIA legacy driver v96 that's only compatible with linux kernel 2.6 and lower and xorg v1.9 and lower, so i installed Linux Mint 13 and the propietary driver and it works!

    Fortunately, my soon to be brother-in-law generously give me an old netbook that can run the superpowers editor and a few little things more, the only bad new is that only has working drivers for windows 7 32bits (is an obscure model of the Atom series, the infamus D2500, bundled with a Intel NM10 mothermoard, even intel can't produce new drivers because that series of processor was produced by Image Technologies, a crappy company that is not interested in making or mantein drivers for their products)

    It is important to note that in order to run superpowers you need a device that can run webGL. At this point in time, this isn't an issue anymore as many devices include support for it, but it should definitely be considered.
