Sonic Adventure DX 2004 FMV cutscenes?

Hey, I installed Xubuntu about a week or so ago and have been setting up my Windows games since. I seem to have fixed most of my problems, mainly having to do with my DS4 controller, but one still eludes me.

I've downloaded Sonic Adventure DX off of Steam and used the Dreamcast Conversion Mod to convert it to the 2004 version and add mods that make it resemble the original Dreamcast version more. However, right now when the intro cutscenes are supposed to play, I instead get a black screen. I can get around this by activating the Skip Intros code in Mod Manager, but I'm wondering if there's something I can do with winetricks to get the FMV cutscenes (the intro, plus the FMV Sonic Team logo that comes with the Dreamcast Conversion mod) to play.

Games zoomed into the top left corner

Hi everyone. I'm new to linux and figured I'd try out WINE. I installed play on Linux, and ran steam, from which I proceeded to install Call of Duty: World at War, as well as a few other games.

When I run any of these games in fullscreen, it goes to a 4:3 resolution, but inside that 4:3 window, the game is zoomed into the top left corner. Is there something I can do to fix this?

I'm using Wine version 2.12 staging if that helps.

Warframe has severe visual glitching when run with the DX11 test version on lutris

The framerates are actually really good but no matter what combination of settings I try I can't get the game playable state. If anyone knows how to fix this I would appreciate the help.

How's the Risen-games on WINE?

I see the Risen-series is on sale on Humble Store now, and I've been wanting to give them a try. Does anyone here have experience running them in WINE? I did get Risen 2 (without any expansions) from a Humble Bundle many moons ago, so I tried playing it, but.. it runs at 20-30fps, and it crashes when I try to save manually. It does have a Gold-rating on the appdb, so this is weird.. I also couldn't get my Xbox-controller working.

Old school game.. Be PORTED!

Hello! My name's giorgi,I've been recently digging through my old things and I found a CD for Prince of persia:Two Thrones,It's a relatively old game.I remeber play it when I was just a child,I got it as a gift from my uncles' son and I remember me,my brother and him playing this game a lot, though i never got to beat it. I had some issues with my old laptop and somehow managed to rid it of its windows OS,so I had to resort to the next best thing,Linux! I was wondering if I could get this old CD thingy to run on linux ubuntu,I don't know much about linux,but that's where you come in! I humbly request your aid in this quest! :D All that I did on my own is that I tried to run "Setup.exe" which didn't really do anything. So heres what's inside the CD:http://www.mediafire.com/file/nl4pwk48jk33l3w/P.O.P_TWO_TRONES.zip And thanks in advance! <3

HELP: A dilemma to take a leap.

I've been using windows since xp but as time flew I started to despise it. I don't wanna go into details of the hatred. But to the point I want to make. I've also used linux on virtual box in the pc. So many people advised me that running linux is risky. But I always loved it. The only problem is I never dared to leap or even make the leap. But as of now I strongly want to. The only thing that is actually keeping from going through with it is the fact a chunk of games are on my pc. Now I'm unsure if I go through will it even have a chance of running them on linux distros. Will there be proper drivers?

Is the leap worth the risk??? IDK suggestions guys.

P.s: Asking this question pretty hard for me. I know this sub gets these kind questions a lot. But I had to ask. IDK where else I could. Its been in my mind for a long time. I tried some other sites like quora(meh) but the responses were shallow and negative.

Alt-tab problem in games, even windowed

Currently playing Gwent and Freelancer on Wine-3.8 (staging) -

works great but both cannot alt-tab, even when set to windowed mode. Freelancer just freezes and maybe expected due to the age of the game, but gwent loses focus/half-freezes, meaning the game cursor still moves (which is a different cursor) and the game continues but it is not possible to click anything anymore. Any ideas about it? I found surprisingly few posts about it. I habe been using this prefix for a while, but cannot remember at what wine version it started. If you think I should try another wine version, please say which one.

Passthrough gaming, partitioning question

So, I'm setting new PC up, currently dualboot, but with GPU passthrough gaming in mind, as I want to move away of booting into Windows as much as possible. It's likely that I will still leave a small Windows partition in case I need to boot into a non-vm windows for whatever reason, but for gaming i'd like to not need to reboot.

Anyway.

*The question is how should I approach partitioning? *

Right now I have 2 m.2 SSDs, one is 250GB which I intend to use for OSes to install, and a separate 500GB one that I intend to use to store games, primarily. I have a separate drive for other data as well, so m.2 will be used primarily just as a dedicated steamgames drive :)

So, as I mentioned, the question is - how should I approach partitioning? Can I just format this 500GB drive as NTFS and pass it through to windows when it runs in VM? Which would also make it accessible directly by a regular Windows install, so I'll be free to either game in VM or switch to Windows for performance or in case some game does not want to play well in VM.

Is it the way to go, will it work like I assumed, or how should I approach it?

Thanks for your time! Reddit's awesome :)

Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition on Fedora 28

Hello guys,

I have a GOG version of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition installed on my Fedora 28 laptop, and I can't run it because there are no providers for some libraries needed by the game (specifically, libjson.so.0 and libssl.so.1.0.0). I installed everything else needed mostly by running dnf whatprovides but running that on those two libraries gives no results. Symlinking to ibjson.so.0 worked, but the game for some reason specifically requires OpenSSL 1.0.1 and/or 1.0.0 while the repos provide only 1.1.0 -- and that's where I'm stuck. I was usually able to run it on my older Linux machines without any tricks, so I guess this is a thing with Fedora 28 and its packages.

AMD vs nVidia for GPU Passthrough gaming

Hi all,

So, i've built my new PC, but there's still one more thing to buy - GPU.

Currently I have:

  • MOBO Asus strix z370-i
  • CPU i5 8600k
  • RAM 32 Gigs 3200 Corsair something
  • m.2 drives and all that
  • PSU CoolerMaster V650 [RS650-AFBAG1-EU]

Planning to use Ubuntu 18.04 KDE, which is downloading as I type this. Initially a dual boot system which will likely transition to full ubuntu use over time.

So I wonder if there's any difference in supportease of setup of GPU Passthrough VM with AMD or nVidia card?

Personally I always favored nVidia cards, mainly because of PhysX and CUDA as well as whole set of GameWorks goodies available only on nVidia. For example can't wait for the nVidia Flex to finally appear in some game.

So if it's the same, I'd go with nVidia. However if AMD is much better supported on Linux and specifically easier to use in a passthrough setup, AND they are generally cheaper... That would be enough pros for me to go for the red team.

Now that I think of it... I never even used an AMD card before, huh.

Thanks for your attention.

How to enable HDR + AA in Oblivion

Hi everybody.

I enabled HDR in Oblivion, but i can't enable AA so i'm trying to force it using Nvidia control panel.

However, if i choose "Override Application Settings" and set Antialiasing to 2x or 4x, i don't see any difference so i suppose it's not enabled at all.

So i created a profile, and these are the settings:

Oblivion

I checked the procname using htop. But i don't see any difference even with that.

I was wondering if it works in Wine applications... Suggestions?

Thanks!

Battlefield/angels-fall-first style game

Hey everyone, I’ve been enjoying linux gaming for around a year now, but I’ve noticed that a battlefield like game natively on linux isn’t available. Imagine how awesome it would be to have a game, with loads of players on one large map, with vehicles and all of that type of stuff. The closest I’ve found is Verdun, which focuses on realism, and doesn’t have vehicles, and war brokers, that can only get up to 16 players, and is somewhat clunky in map design, weapons handling, ui and vehicles. I don’t know if a battlefield style game is available on linux, so maybe you guys would know.

Possibly migrating to linux full-time, have a couple questions

Hello, I've been using Linux on my laptop a lot and I'd like to also use it on my desktop.

I just upgraded my computer and what's holding me back is, the last time I tried linux gaming, it wasn't very 'fluid' it felt choppy and had a performance drop when compared to windows.

Currently my specs are:

16 GB ddr4 RAM

GTX 1060 6GB

Ryzen 5 1600x 6-core processor

I also have a 4k monitor.. I mainly play WoW and Path of Exile. I was thinking of using Debian or possibly Ubuntu, I'm not sure which distro would be best for what I am looking for?

Thanks

At first I just tried logging into steam and got "You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:libGL.so.1" so I tried sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 but it wouldn't allow it.

[x-post from /r/RocketLeague] Max FPS on Linux significantly lower than Windows. Is there something wrong with my setup, or is Rocket League's Linux port just poorly optimized?

I have a GTX 950 that can usually run the game at about 250 FPS on Windows in freeplay with most of the extra visuals turned off and/or set to performance. However, with the same in-game video settings on Linux, I can only seem to get about 150 to 160 FPS, same freeplay map and everything. As such, adding in OBS recording on Linux easily pulls my framerate below the 144 that I'd need to match my monitor, and while by no means unplayable, it's hard to justify putting up with stuttering just so I don't need to boot into Windows.

Still, we're talking about a 40% drop in performance. Is Rocket League's Linux port just that poorly optimized? Or is it more likely that I've configured something wrong, overlooked some setting, or just otherwise somehow screwed something up?

Would gaming on Linux be faster than on macOS on my MacBook Air?

It's a MacBook Air, I know, not a gaming machine. I get it.

I don't plan on fully switching - I use software like GarageBand and Photoshop on the daily.

However, I thought I could dual-boot Linux and macOS, if Linux performs better in games like Rocket League and CS:GO.

Specs:

  • Intel Core i5-5210U

  • 8GB DDR3 RAM

  • Intel HD 6000 Graphics

Any help would be much appreciated!

PSA: Latest Steam update breaks controllers in Big Picture Mode

The May 16 steam update has completely disabled my twin F710 controllers on both Ubuntu and SteamOS in BPM. This update is largely around fixing controller issues, and instead has turned my controllers into paper-weights in BPM. However thankfully they still appear to work in game at this point.

Just a warning to others! Don't update if you can avoid it. This affects the stable steam client, not just the Beta!

No music in NBA 2K11 but sound effects works

Is trying to get NBA 2K11 to work properly but can't seem to get the music or in-game commentary to work. I have the same problem with NBA 2K13 and NBA 2K14. The biggest problem this causes is that in MyPlayer mode you can't get past the post-game conferences because the reporter will never ask the question.

The only error in the output that I think is related to the sound problem is:

Managing different wine versions

In life of people using wine, sooner or later comes a time when something won't work on your current version of wine, even if it did on older ones, or with different options.

That's why it's often good idea to use different versions and/or different prefixes.

And here comes the question – how do we manage all that? Here are some options I know:

1. Do it manually
When it comes to prefixes – that's actually not bad.
You can just add yourself little alias like "alias wine64='WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-64 WINEARCH=win64 wine', and suddenly we have quite easy way of running applications differently. Unfortunately, each prefix must still be added by hand and getting, keeping and managing different wine versions isn't as fun (it's still possible though).
Or maybe I'm just missing something.

2. PlayOnLinux
I don't know. I used it for a bit in the past, but for some reason it always rubs me wrong way. Also it won't allow me to simply create an empty profile with options I want. And it has bugs.

3. Lurtis
I only discovered this one today, while researching before starting this thread. It's nice and I might look further into it, but again, it seems to be lacking option to simply create a bottle with version and prefix that I could use however I want.

4. q4wine
Now, this one seems to have options I'm looking for, but holy shit, it's not intuitive, so after multiple tries I'm not even sure what it supposed to do.

How do you like to manage your mess (because when trying to install different games/applications with different dependencies it's bound to turn into a mess eventually)? What is the best way to go if I just want few different versions of wine on few different prefixes?

How to tell Wine which display to use for fullscreen?

Hello,

I'd like to run my game under Wine in fullscreen, but my Linux system has two physical displays and I'd like the game to run on one of them. But by default Wine always starts my game on the wrong one.

How do I tell Wine which monitor to use for my fullscreen game?

I also tried to run the game via qt4Wine, which offers an option to set the DISPLAY variable. Should I use this? Here's the relevant output from running the xrandr --current command:

Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 3200 x 1200, maximum 32767 x 32767 LVDS1 connected primary 1280x800+0+400 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 260mm x 160mm 1280x800 60.00+ 59.91 50.00 ...... DP2 connected 1920x1200+1280+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 520mm x 320mm 1920x1200 59.95+

I'd like the game to run fullscreen in DP2 instead of LVDS1 but I don't know how to tell Wine that.... Any help would be appreciated!

Should I upgrade from 16.04 to 18.04 yet?

Hi,

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04, with latest Nvidia drivers (got a 1080 GTX) and HWE extensions (i.e. kernel 4.13.0-41-generic). Everything is working ok, and I don't have any particular need to upgrade - should I do it or wait ~3/4 more months?

Thanks!

Switched DE, got significant performance boost

Switched from my usual Cinnamon/GNOME/KDE/etc juggling on my main rig to try Openbox for that nice minimalism aesthetic and what not, and found my fps is noticeably higher (from about 105±20% in Cinnamon to aprox 150±25% average in CS:GO).
I've seen previous posts and discussions, benchmarks even, that posit minimal differences between DEs, but here I am with my nice 30~50% fps gain and surprisingly nice Desktop (display scaling finally works properly now, too)
.
.
.
P.S.
Mayhaps the other DEs were misconfigured somehow or I've a particularly unfortunate setup with some special hiccup.
Could it have been a compositing or rendering issue? IIRC/AFAIK Cinnamon and GNOME like to fall back on software rendering without saying anything, maybe that has something to do with it...

Too early to install Ubuntu 18.04?

I'm trying to set up my system to dual-boot windows and linux. I went with ubuntu 18.04 because it's the latest LTS release and amd is being cool and auto-packaging drivers with it so I figured it would be an easy setup...

boy was I wrong.

Many apps aren't the latest versions even in software that was released months ago (gimp is still 2.8, VLC isn't at version 3 yet, etc. Steam refuses to install, I guess it doesn't see the amd drivers? I tried installing the pro drivers which only list they're compatible with 16.04 and that screwed everything up but funnily enough steam then would open, but all the window panes were graphically garbled like crazy. Is it better to stick with 16.04 right now?

should I go with a distro like Fedora instead?

Lutris 0.4.16 WILL BREAK OVERWATCH USING DXVK, AVOID

As a heads-up, the Lutris developers tried to make DXVK more convenient to setup in Lutris. Unfortunately, they clamped the code to version 0.50 based on the github releases. This specific release breaks Overwatch, and 0.51 actually fixes it.

Not only that, the Lutris developers did NOT announce how this new DXVK feature would work (so far as I can tell), and did NOT give you the option to adapt your existing prefixes to the new method as an OPTION. For me, it was a forced change.

The behaviour (from what I'm reading in the code), is it downloads DXVK release 0.50 and automatically slams the DLLs in the correct folders in your prefix (windows DLL folders, system32 and syswow64).

While this is a very convenient feature, unfortunately they don't give you ANY way to specify the DXVK version to install, nor give you the option to undo it.

What did I have to do too fix it?

  1. Remove lutris 0.4.16 (without purging configs)
  2. Install lutris 0.4.14 : http://download2.nust.na/pub4/sourceforge/a/ac/acoros/acoros/stable/pool/main/l/lutris/
  3. Re-install DXVK 0.51 (in my case I used this build : https://haagch.frickel.club/files/dxvk/r1113.26b319b/ )
  4. It should "just work" again, as so far it seems this is the only thing the Lutris change does.

Honestly, this is a well-intentioned feature, that executed at a coincidentally bad time. Kudos to Lutris devs on making this as simple to do as they have, but I myself would like to see more granular control over the DXVK version being installed per-prefix.

What really irks me, is that I had to read the source code to tell what exactly they did. This kind of a thing SHOULD BE DOCUMENTED IN RELEASE NOTES AND/OR A NEWS POST. To be more granular, I mean, the behaviour it will exhibit, and how to use it. They did announce this feature in the github release notes, but there were ZERO details on how it works, how to use it, and where it is in the GUI.

The relevant commit is here : https://github.com/lutris/lutris/commit/c96e8a3606a93da33a96c4766dbc65f906380008

And you can find the relevant version clamp in dxvk.py on line 17.

Enjoy! :D

Wine and JACK, is it still possible?

Some time ago Wine's audio part was rewritten and they dropped Jack support with it. This is especially important to me since I play a lot of rythm games and the latency caused by PulseAudio is enough to throw me off. I have tried setting the audio driver to ALSA through Winetricks but the latency is still higher than it was with Jack (or Windows). Is there still a method to make Wine use Jack?

Weird bug with Medieval 2 Total War

Ok so I run Solus (Budgie, updated) and I have the weirdest issue with Medieval 2 Total War.

When I launch the game, it starts just fine, but when the credits appear the video "freeze", the sound goes on but the video stops.

Here comes the weird part : when I try to go back to the desktop, using ALT+TAB, then the video starts back. Only problem, I have to continue being on the ALT+TAB mode for the video to go on, if I stop it freezes again.

I tried uninstalling the game, playing with Linux Steam Integration, but nothing worked so far.

Windows in VM, i5-8600k vs i7-8700k

Hello,

Deciding on a CPU for my new build, and since I plan to either use DualBoot or, ideally, a virtualized windows (with gpu passthrough) for gaming, I wonder which CPU is better. PC will be used primarily for entertainment, gaming, programming and occasional media editing. I have a separate rig for work.

The price difference is around 130-140$, and you get +6 more cores.

i5 gives you 6 cores, and overclock up to 5GHz (or even more) i7 gives you 12 cores, and turbo boost up to... 4.7 I think?

So which would be better for a Windows VM Gaming? Can I pass all 6 cores to a VM? I've read that it's not a good idea, but I may be wrong.

WHat about 5 cores? Is 1 core enough for a host to work?

I feel like ideal would be to give 4 cores to the windows client and leave 2 for host, but I can say for a fact that games will soon start relying on multiple cores more.

With i7 it's easy, 6 for host and 6 for VM, should be enough for years and years to come. But is it worth 140$?

Thanks for your time.

Lutris : Dxvk included but there's a trick

0.4.1.6 Latest version of Lutris integrates Dxvk dlls into its runtimes.

tricky effect : if you want dxvk to work on your games you have to manually tick the dxvk box for each and everyone of them.

Second surprise : the shipped dxvk is version 0.50 ($HOME/.local/share/lutris/runtime/dxvk/0.50).

You have to delete and copy the 0.51 content inside the 0.50 one to get it update as it somewhat bypasses the DLLs you copied in your prefixes....

Snap discord on Ubuntu 18.04 has massive memory problems

In my computer, using the snap discord version provided by ubuntu 18.04 on its software app causes gnome-shell to devour all my ram in a matter of minutes.

Installing the .deb package provided by discord on its web solve the problem, so its something related with the snap package.

I didn't find any info about this on my google searchs so if someone here is using the same distro can confirm/deny this behaviour?

Gaming on Linux in Windows VM - bans?

Hello, I'm building my new rig and considering finally using Linux as my primary OS, while only using Windows in VM with Passthrough for gaming and occasional other tasks that Linux can't handle (like Photoshop maybe).

But I've read somewhere that some games don't play well with VMs, that anti-cheating software can consider it cheating and ban you. Is this correct? If it is, it would be a huge dealbreaker, and I'll have to resort to dual-booting. Not a huge problem, considering, but a shame anyway.

Looking for an app to help streamline a tabletop rpg's math.

I'm not too sure if I should post this here or to /r/LinuxQuestions but I figure I'll try here first.

I have an ongoing Sci-Fi tabletop rpg going on with some friends and, they've managed to get themselves into a ship-to-ship combat situation that is very math heavy due to all the variables on the ship and, it's slowing combat down to a crawl.

Does anyone know of an app that can take a user defined equation/formula and then allow them to enter custom value's to determine the outcome?

METRO Last Light Redux

I'm testing GOG - METRO: Last Light Redux and have an interesting problem.

When using Wine 3.8 the game crashes because it can't find these specific Visual C - DLLs

  • 0028:err:module:import_dll Library MSVCP110.dll (which is needed by L"C:GOG GamesMetro Last Light Reduxmetro.exe") not found

  • 0028:err:module:import_dll Library MSVCR110.dll (which is needed by L"C:GOG GamesMetro Last Light ReduxPhysX3_x64.dll") not found

  • 0028:err:module:import_dll Library PhysX3_x64.dll (which is needed by L"C:GOG GamesMetro Last Light Reduxmetro.exe") not found

So I checked syswow64 and these are all there. Not sure why the metro.exe can't find them? Even Wine configuration shows them as (built-in/native). I even copied them to the parent dir where metro.exe exists and no go.

So of course I tried staging version and the game runs (with stinking pulseaudio crackling) but noticed this in the debug:

  • 000b:fixme:winediag:start_process Please mention your exact version when filing bug reports on winehq.org.

  • 002e:fixme:module:find_dll_file skipping L"C:windowssystem32MSVCP110.dll" because of wrong architecture

  • 002e:fixme:module:find_dll_file skipping L"C:windowssystem32msvcr110.dll" because of wrong architecture

Strange that Metro Last Light runs with staging and the DLLs are "skipped" somehow. I tried setting these overrides to "disabled" and that didn't help. How can these be skipped or recognized by the executable so I can run it in Wine 3.8?

Giveaway. I'm giving away free 3 copies of Stardew Valley

Hello /r/linux_gaming. I'm giving away 3 copies of Stardew Valley. The moderators were cool with me doing this giveaway.

Stardew Valley is a farming simulator, marriage simulator, and a RPG all in one. The game-play feels like Harvest Moon, but better in my opinion since you can fight monsters and help an alcoholic bus driver feed their addiction. Recently, online co-op was added, but that is in the 1.3 beta that owners of the game can opt into (The beta might only be on steam, but you might be able opt in to the beta via Humble Bundle).

Rules: If you want to try to win, you must post a single post in this thread. Linux gamers only.

You must post a comment in this thread on which marriage candidate in Stardew Valley is your favorite and why. If you already own a copy of the game, please post if you're willing to give your win (if I pick you) to someone else.

If the winner already has the game and isn't able to give their copy to someone else, I will pick someone else in the thread.

If you post multiple comments, only one of your comments will count. I will pick 3 people at random. The game is from the Humble Bundle website, so they're DMR free, but you can also copy the steam key and add it to your steam library if you use steam.

I will pick the winners tomorrow. Note for those who win: Please grab your keys asap when I do send them out. Failure to grab your key after 24 hours of announcing the winners, I'll give the key to another random person in the thread. Have a good day and happy gaming.

Poor performance in CS:GO with Intel HD 4600...

Hi everyone,

I want to preface this post by stating that I wasn't expecting phenomenal performance with the Intel HD 4600. In fact, I conceded that all of the video settings would be configured at their lowest with a meager HD (1280x720) resolution.

Unfortunately, the performance hasn't even met my low expectations. Although playing maps with small draw distances (i.e. Office) results in an acceptable 50-60 FPS and an overall good experience, playing maps with extended draw distances (i.e. Nuke, Shipped, etc.) results in a significant reduction in performance (can be as low as 20-30 FPS) with horrible input lag and stuttering.

I've used the command line arguments high and threads 8 (the processor is an Intel Core I7 4770), and also disabled multi-core rendering (which didn't make a difference, better or worse). I don't believe the CPU is the culprit, as the utilisation remains between 20-60% on all cores (occasionally, the utilisation will reach 100% on a single core).

Now, the simple solution would be to buy a dedicated video card. However, I have a small form factor (SFF) enclosure, which can only accommodate half-height video cards. I had a GTX 1050 previously which was the perfect compromise between size and performance, but sold it when I migrated to Linux due to issues associated with the proprietary drivers. Unfortunately, AMD's half-height video cards are severely lacking in performance, energy efficiency, and cost.

Is there anything else I could try?

Tuning your Linux system for Gaming Performance (important information for Threadripper users inside!)

Hello everyone.
Late last November, I built a new PC with a TR 1950X + RX 580 to replace my old PC, which housed a i5-750 + GTX 960. However, I found that although I used Linux on both my old and new system, I actually had a worse gaming experience on my new system than my old system!
There were some bugs in mesa's open-source radeonsi/radv drivers compared to NVIDIA's drivers GL/Vulkan drivers, for one, but these only showed up when running emulators (which tend to use the more advanced and less-used features in graphics APIs), this situation has been gotten better over time, and graphics driver bugs aren't the focus of this write-up.
What I'd like to focus on here is the performance issues I identified and addressed, giving me in the end a MUCH smoother gaming experience on Linux.

First, let's just briefly touch on graphics drivers, since they can have a significant effect on performance.
Mesa's development is fast enough that it tends to support things around the same time that NVIDIA's drivers do.
The problem is that Mesa doesn't have new-feature releases as frequently as NVIDIA's drivers do- mesa releases containing new features are only done four times a year (with weekly bugfix releases following each new-development release).
If you build mesa master yourself, you can get the latest updates whenever you want.
If you aren't used to building packages, lots of people use Arch Linux, in which case you can get the latest development release there, with Debian you can follow their testing or unstable branch and get the latest stable release there, etc. etc.

Threadripper CPUs are pretty unique amongst consumer CPUs- they're essentially two Ryzen CPUs glued together into one big package.
Each Ryzen chip is given one of two memory controllers on your system, so if you have two sticks of 8GB RAM and install each stick on opposite sides of the motherboard, 8GB of that RAM is owned by one of the Ryzen chips, and the other 8GB is owned by the other chip.
You can see all of this by running 'numactl -H'.
I've discovered issues with dolphin-emu stuttering on Threadripper, not due to shader compilation, but because of the wacky CPU- the memory allocator or scheduler did not assign all of dolphin-emu's memory and threads to just one of the two Ryzen chips, but split the processes and/or memory resources amongst both chips (sending data from one of the Ryzen chips to the other is slow apparently).
You can tell Linux to keep the process (and child processes') and memory to just one of the chips and do away with this CPU-side stuttering with numactl, for example: "numactl --cpunodebind=0 --membind=0 ./dolphin-emu"

On modern desktop systems with a healthy amount of RAM and swap, Linux tends to move data stored in RAM to the swap too aggressively by default.
If you leave a game open all the time, and some of the memory of a game gets moved from RAM to swap, you can get some really nasty stuttering and slowdowns when Linux reluctantly reads the game's allocated memory from swap back into RAM.
You can view and adjust this tendency via the "swappiness" value:
cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness (to see what the current swappiness value is) sysctl vm.swappiness=10 (this sets swappiness to 10, will be reset to 60 when you reboot)
To adjust permanently: edit "vm.swappiness" in /etc/sysctl.conf to equal 10, or add the line "vm.swappiness=10" if it does not exist.

Desktop operating systems like Linux are multitasking systems that try to schedule CPU and I/O time amongst several processes at once, but when gaming we want to make sure that the game process is given priority over most other processes.
You can run a game with higher CPU and I/O priorities by running the below command as root, replacing $user with the username of the user you want to run the command as, and $cmd with the game you want to run:
nice -n -10 ionice -c 1 -n 1 su $user -c "$cmd"

Recently everyone has been talking about Feral's performance tool, so I decided to save discussion on CPU and GPU performance governing for last. Feral's tool just adjusts the CPU governor to "performance", and doesn't mess with the GPU to the best of my knowledge, but there's also a similar setting you can set for the GPU which might result in better performance (I haven't done any benchmarking, but somebody should!)
Note this will make your CPU and GPU run at higher temperatures as they will be running at higher clock settings.
It would be good practice to only set your CPU/GPU this way when gaming, and to return them to "ondemand" (for the CPU) and "auto" (for the GPU) when not gaming.
The CPU governor can be set like this:
echo "performance" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor (repeat this for the number of logical CPUs/threads on your system)
The GPU can be set to always be on high-performance mode like this: echo "high" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_dpm_force_performance_level

With all of these tweaks made, it's possible to get smooth-as-butter gaming performance on a Linux system, even when running your game while many other processes are running in the background. (I tend to have hundreds upon hundreds of browser tabs open all the time...)
I hope you found some of this information useful!
I had a lot of fun learning more about Linux over the past several months.
I used to think stuttering and slowdowns were part-and-parcel of PC gaming,
but it turns out that if you learn to speak the language that desktop operating systems speak, you can tell your OS, CPU and GPU to conduct their business in a manner that gives you the best performance without compromising on multi-tasking.

Questions about GPU passthrough and VMs

So I don't currently have electricty (I live in a sort of a hut like structure), but I am building a new house and I should have it before too long so I have been thinking of fun computer projects. I am aware of the concept of playing games in a virtual machine using gpu passthrough to improve performance, and I was thinking of trying it out for fun.

-Can anyone suggest tutorials for getting into this?

-I have a gtx 1070 currently, would this be a good card to try it with? If I will need to get a second card to run Linux on what would people suggest? AMD or Nvida? I don't think it would need to be anything too crazy, just enough that nicely run my DE and ideally good open source drivers.

-I have a copy of windows for this computer, if I try to run this in a VM on the same computer will my windows copy work for that? I have only ever used the dual booting option, so I am not really familiar with VM in general.

-Finally, I plan to use arch linux for this, would that be a good choice, or would another distro be preferable. I currently use and like arch, but I don't care about the distro I use terribly and I have used ubuntu in the past and was happy enough with it.

CAN NOT LAUNCH STEAM

I'm new to Linux. I have Debian 9 stretch installed. I have tried every single way possible I could think to install it. As far as I know all dependencies are met. When I launch it the screen goes black for a split sec twice while it's doing it's update. As soon as it hits connecting user the system completely locks with a graphical error of slanted bars going across the screen. I have to hard reset any time it gets close to opening. I've gotten it to where it won't do that if I try to just open the program (Steam updates, then nothing happens). Still Freezes OS if I try to launch from terminal. Please someone help me, I spent at least 6 hours on this last night and I can't for the life of me figure out why it won't work.

Osiris: New Dawn - Wine 3.8

With wine 3.8, the game runs, but ground textures are messed up, alas you can no longer play in d3d9 mode, which used to work fine.If using DXVK, the ground renders fine, but due to lack of stream support, player character models and weapons etc render all messed up making the game unplayable :(

[tech help] Steam UI (library/store etc) doesn't show up after login

So I was trying to give someone steam family sharing access earlier tonight and since that was a slightly confusing process I logged out and back in to my steam account numerous times. Then all of a sudden the UI just didn't show up anymore after I entered the login, it just wouldn't show up - multiple steam processes were running fine. I started it in terminal to see the output:

https://pastebin.com/PCYEWheq

(the dbus error repeats endlessly)

Steam processes are there, it's running normally, I just don't see the UI. If someone starts a steam chat with me, I can see that window. I can also see the overlay popup that I have a new item in my inventory after steam starts. I tried logging into a different account and that works fine, everything appears the way it should. I tried "steam --reset", same result once I log into my account, the normal steam window doesn't show up. I tried to move the whole ~/.local/share/Steam folder to somewhere else because I figure it has something to do with some messed up config for my account. Steam starts and asks to download all that stuff again, I agree, it does, I login to my account, same shit. How do I fix this?

Help with front panel mic jack

I am trying to records gameplays and I am able to use mic from both my front and rear microphone 3.5mm jack of my cpu case. But I am able to use the slider for audio input of the mic in the rear panel but its locked in the front panel [image](https://i.imgur.com/hoEtfAz.png). So the sound recorded from the real panel is clear and loud. But the sound recorded from the front panel is barely hearable It is not possible for me to use the rear panel I only used it for testing. Generally I use the front panel as my headphone wire is not too long. I want to use the front panel audio slider be enable how can I fix it? I am new to linux and don't know much. I am using Ubuntu GNOME 16.04.2 x64. Please help me.

Trying to get World of Warcraft to run in wine 3.8, blank screen at launch no matter what

Been fighting with this for a few hours, and I'm admittedly a novice, but been furiously googling everything I could think of. I'm not necessarily new to Linux, but new to using Wine, so there may be something really simple I've misunderstood or just missed.

I installed the battle.net app successfully (been playing StarCraft II a lot lately, works perfectly well) and although the app itself is kinda busted (can't log in, but it shouldn't matter) I can install the games fine. I installed wow, and tried to run it through the app. No dice. Went to the wineprefix were I have it and ran the executable itself (WINEPREFIX=~/.winewow wine Wow-64.exe).

What happens is, it spits out this https://pastebin.com/Achf7Bpk in the terminal, and the screen goes blank (all I see is my wallpaper). I can open a terminal behind the frozen screen, or move it around different workspaces, but it just sits there until I kill it.

I tried running it with dx9, dx11, opengl, windowed, fullscreen, windowedfullscreen, tried lowering the settings, you name it. I read that MSAA makes the screen go black at any setting, so I copied my girlfriends Config.wtf file that shouldn't have MSAA enabled (since she doesn't have it on). I tried installing everything that had to do with directx through winetricks, but it seems that had nothing to do with anything.

On winehq it shows (slightly) outdated wine versions running really well, most reports seem to at the very least get the game to start up, and the majority running just fine. The latest one (wine 3.3) has very few issues at all.

Nobody else in the world seems to have my problems! So I must have fucked something up, but I have absolutely no idea what. I am running Arch, a very minimal install, so I find it most likely that I am missing something.

If anyone can help me, I'd be really glad.

When you install wine games with lutris using an installer, do they all install into the same prefix?

If so, how are you supposed to install games that use wine at the same time? Won't the installers all clobber each other?

worse overall performance compared to windows

hey everyone, since i've started gaming on linux i've noticed overall my performance is way worse compared to windows. i expect to get worse performance from wine/dxvk, however even in emulators like RPCS3 and Cemu, or native Linux Steam games vs native Windows Steam games, the performance is a lot worse.

in Rise of the Tomb Raider for example, my overall benchmark score was 59.75fps on windows. on linux it's 44.94fps. for RPCS3, i get ~8FPS worse than i would on windows (which makes no sense since PS3 OS is based on BSD). am i missing some essential step for setting up my machine?

[Issue] Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Black screen

So has anyone tried to look at the problem of this game with it's latest patch? I am just trying to gather the people who are interested so we can make it happen (who knows.. maybe it could be a fix for wine). Currently I am just waiting for the next patch, but now that I have some time over I can sit down and take a look on it. I am just trying to see if someone have looked into it before me.

I've tried the game with DXVK and the game runs but it would seem that it's trying to load an unsupported DX11 module. I wanted to avoid to go full wine log mode (because it takes about 5~10 minutes to run wine with it).

Install AMDGPU-PRO Vulkan driver next to RADV to fix glitches in DXVK/Vulkan Games

Many games that have graphical glitches on RADV are working fine with the AMDGPU-PRO driver, which uses a different shader compiler. You can install it next to RADV and use it with the VK_ICD_FILENAMES environmental variable. So it's a good way to test if a glitch is caused by DXVK or driver / shader-compiler bugs.

List of games i tested, that work fine/better with AMDGPU-PRO: World Of Warcraft, Tekken 7, Sword Art Online - Fatal Bullet, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, GTA 5, Nier: Automata, ARK: Survival Evolved.

But some games, like for example Witcher 3, are working better with RADV driver.

I used Radeon Software for Linux 18.20 for testing.

I extracted only the following files:

/opt/amdgpu-pro/lib/i386-linux-gnu/amdvlk32.so
/opt/amdgpu-pro/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/amdvlk64.so
/etc/vulkan/icd.d/amd_icd32.json
/etc/vulkan/icd.d/amd_icd64.json

from the packages vulkan-amdgpu-pro_18.20-579836_i386.deb and vulkan-amdgpu-pro_18.20-579836_amd64.deb.

Then start your game with VK_ICD_FILENAMES=/etc/vulkan/icd.d/amd_icd64.json wine game-x86-64.exe or VK_ICD_FILENAMES=/etc/vulkan/icd.d/amd_icd32.json wine game-i386.exe

Note: This is NOT the Open Source AMDVLK driver that uses llvm.

Improving Shadow of Mordor FPS on a Ryzen 5 2600X/GTX 1070

I have upgraded my computer from a i5-6500 to a R5 2600X (full specs at the end of the post ) . I have activated the XMP profile from the BIOS so the memory is running at 3200CL14.

Most games run faster than before, but Shadow of Mordor took a steep FPS dive. I ran the benchmark at 'Very High' settings at 1440p with the i5 and the R5. With the i5 minimum frame rate in the benchmark was around 43-44 FPS. With the Ryzen it's at 32-33 FPS, which is very low. For the record, it's about 80 on Windows.

I've found this excellent post from GoL : Shadow of Mordor on AMD Ryzen CPU suffers from a performance hit due to non-optimal thread scheduling and running the game with taskset -c 0-5 %command% gave a bump up to 40-41 minimum FPS.

Moving graphics settings to 'Medium' only gets me 2-3 FPS, so it definitely looks like the game is CPU-bound on my system.

I really want to get close to or above 60 minimum FPS, what can I do to achieve that?

Thanks.

What RPG games do you recommend?

Dear redditors of r/linux_gaming, I'm a huge fan of Linux and RPGs, so I was thinking if there is any game that you would recommend me that runs on Linux.

My preference is Linux native games, but Wine compatible is Ok as long as it runs fine (I prefer supporting Linux native gaming).

I don't care if it's First Person, Third Person or Isometric, but games with similar mechanics to, let's say, God of War(2018), Dark Souls, The Witcher or TES: Skyrim would be great. Do not feel limited to recommend me another game though, those are just preferences.

As of number of players, singleplayer is a must to me.

To make things easier, I played the following games:

  • Skyrim
  • Dark Souls
  • The Witcher 2
  • Divinity Original Sin
  • Bastion
  • Transistor
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown
  • Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
  • Hand of Fate
  • Wasteland

There was this post, but most of the recommendations I already played or were designed for co-op/multiplayer. Link above: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/895xxz/linix_gaming_rpg/

PC crashes after 5-10 minutes in game.

I just built a new PC and decided to go with Linux instead of windows this time, and I really love it, all my small RPG games work on wine and bitwig studio replaces ableton live. But I have one problem, when I play a somewhat intensive game for about 5 minutes my PC crashes.

I have an RX 480 and R7 2700x running on Ubuntu 18.04 using the beta MESA drivers, since there's no stable out for 18.04 yet, or I couldn't find it.

I've tested underclocking my system, monitoring CPU temps, running in very low resolutions and low settings, different audio devices and reinstalling drivers. But none of that has fixed it.

The main game I want to play is cities skylines. Does anyone have any idea what my problem might be? I have no idea what else to try.

Some of my games weren't launching earlier and its because I was missing a library

I posted earlier about not being able to launch Dying Light on Ubuntu 18.04, which for whatever reason worked in the earlier versions of Ubuntu as well as another flavor of 18.04. This issue also came up when I tried to launch Rocket League. Nothing would happen when trying to launch it. Going into the folder that held Rocket League's executable file and running the executable from the terminal showed this error:

./RocketLeague: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL2-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Running sudo apt install libsdl2-2.0 fixed the launch issues and everything runs like it did in the past! I don't know why I needed to do this or why 18.04 is different, but I thought I'd post this if the issue wasn't an obvious fix for anyone.

How do I set up MAME?

Hi,

I've always wondered how to set up MAME, does anyone knows? I thougth about asking here because well, I've been a Linux user for quite a long time (almost 20 years) and I've always had trouble trying to get MAME to work.

I guess I really never tried it hard enough, I have an old machine (dual core E5500 CPU with 2 gigs of RAM) where I spin up RetroArch to play some older titles sometimes, but MAME is really where it's at.

Does anyone knows where I can start? I tried SDLMAME without much success a few years ago, but if I can get it to work with RetroArch, that's even better.

Please let me know, thanks.

ONE DXVK SCRIPT: One script that set up all dxvk hassle

Hey guys, I have improved a lot of good DXVK scripts and made one simple script that eases our life.

All the user have to do is name the wineprefix

What this script does:

  • Create wineprefix with given name (~/wine/prefix/?)
  • Install vulkanskd and steam (winetricks)
  • Download latest Dxvk dll from Haag site!
  • Uses setup_dxvk.sh to symlink both 64/32 dll
  • add Wine-Vulkan regedit keys
  • creates winevulkan.json file on C:windows

[Hearthstone] Works fine, but "Program Error" windows after client is launched

I am running Hearthstone flawlessly, on playonlinux for months now, but I have problems I'm hoping to get fixed because they are quite annoying:

  • When Battle.net client is launched, I am bombarded with 3+ "Program Error" windows that says:

The program Battle.net Helper.exe has encountered a serious problem...

I close it and another appears, until I have closed ~3 or more of them. If I clock on "Show details", there's information which may be relevant if you guys need. My system information:

Wine build: wine-3.7 (Staging)
Platform: i386
Version: Windows 10
Host system: Linux
Host version: 4.16.7-1-ARCH (I'm on Arch Linux)
  • When I quit Hearthstone, I get the "Program Error" window that says:

The program Hearthstone.exe has encountered a serious problem...

  • When I quit Battle.net client, I get the "Program Error" window that says:

The program Battle.net Helper.exe has encountered a serious problem...

  • For some reason, I can't get my settings for playonlinux to run in wine/wine-staging. If I set up wine/wine-staging to use the same settings and launch Hearthstone, the window becomes messed up, there would be large black rectangles, and/or it would freeze. Is it expected that the settings do not translate 100% from playonlinux to wine? I thought playonlinux was merely a GUI frontend manager for wine applications--I really hope to ditch playonlinux as I don't use the interface at all and launch Hearthstone from the command line.

  • Is it possible to launch Hearthstone directly without launching the Battle.net client? I see this but was not able to get it to work and I wonder if that's because of wine.

Thanks and much appreciated.

TUTORIAL: How to reduce stuttering (NVIDIA)

WHAT IS ALL THIS ABOUT?:

Shader rendering on the fly is a heavy task for any game but especially for wine. That's why your graphic card drivers use a directory for that purpose.

For Mesa drivers: ~/.cache/mesa
For Nvidia privative drivers: ~/.NV

PROBLEM:

Nvidia has a soft limit of 128MB shader cache. A shared cache for ALL of your games. As you may have guessed, this is too little. Some games, need 500+MB just for themselves (for example: Zelda Breath of Wild).

SOLUTION:

Currently, there's no way to increase the size of this cache, BUT we have a way to tell Nvidia drivers to use a different shader cache directory for every game using the environment variables:

__GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE: '1'     
__GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE_PATH: '/a/directory/choosen/by/you'

EXAMPLE:

Processing img m2o1wh08j2x01...

Processing img 0rf7orncj2x01...

Processing img 05vieeldk2x01...

RESULTS YOU CAN EXPECT:

A great reduction of stuttering, and usually, 1-10 fps gain. Some games will become playable. This is, after about 1 hour of gameplay, once all shaders have been cached.

RESULTS YOU SHOULD NOT EXPECT:

This solution gives 128MB shader cache to every one of your games. It's a huge improvement! But as I said before, some games will require more than 128MB (only a few of them though). In this scenarios, there's currently no solution. If you experince this situation, I'd recommend you to write to Nvidia.

FINAL NOTES:

  • You can use PlayOnLinux if you preffer, or even set the environment variables manually if you use a standalone wineprefix. I just use Lutris because I like it.
  • The faster your SSD disk is, better results you can expect.
  • Some people even like to use a RAM disk for this purpose, with great results.
  • I don't know the current situation for AMD/Intel. I encourage you to research.

What is the current state of PUBG on Linux?

Hi folks!

I don't own the game myself, but would buy it, if it uns on Linux.

The game has been totally unplayable on release. But then things like DXVK came, so I don't think rendering is the problem for now. Also the last WINE updates sometimes mentioned big BattleEye stuff

What is the current state for now?

If it doesn't run, where is the problem? Is it something like "we need to solve little BattleEye things again" or "it won't let us run it on Linux and never will"?

League on Linux

So, I have finally joined the dark side... Literally I installed Arch and haven't chosen a DE. BUT WHEN I DO, my first game install will be League of Legends. Has anyone here played League on both Windows and Linux? If so did you notice any performance differences?

I know I can install it using WINE, and the game has a gold rating on the WINE app db, but I don't really know what that means from a performance stand point. League is pretty much the only game I sink any amount of time into, so I really need it function well. I am switching my daily driver from Windows 10 to Arch, if I can't play league properly, I may need to keep windows around.

PSA: Serious problems with GTX 1060 (6GB) and Nvidia 396.24 Driver

Hi Everyone,

Please be careful if you have a Nvidia GTX 1060 (6GB) and do NOT install the new stable 396.24 drivers. There are serious problems with this driver release in combination with this specific hardware. I've tried installing the drivers on Ubuntu 18.04 and Fedora 28 and had the same problems, a hard lockup when trying to start GDM. The only solution is to rollback to 390.48.

You can find more information about this issue here:

https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1033811/linux/linux-driver-390-works-396-doesn-t/

https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1032725/linux/396-18-02-neon-sddm-crash-on-boot-xid-62-nvrm-rm_init_adapter-failed-for-device-bearing-min-/

It also looks like some Windows users are also having problems with the latest driver in combination with the 1060.

It sucks to have spent so many hours trying to get 396.24 up and running only to figure out that it's a flaw in the drivers. Don't make the same mistake I did!

Running games w/ Wine -Question

I've been using Linux Distros for a few years now, and never really thought about fully converting over to Linux for gaming. I know that most of my video games have been on Windows as I've had dual-boot config going for awhile.

How good does Wine work with Windows games? I've been dying to completely go Linux and never have to look back. I know some Steam games work on Linux but not all (stupid).

TLDR: How good does wine work with Windows games? i.e. PUBG, FS17, R6.

[Guide] How to trigger a hardware survey

We all know how annoying it is to never get the steam hardware surveys. However, when I was poking around steam for my NCurses Steam Client, I found a nifty little trick...

Steam has a special browser protocol, and for whatever reason Valve left in some hooks to trigger surveys. All you need to do is launch steam with:

steam steam://takesurvey/<SURVEY_ID>

The ids I've found so far are:

  1. Dota 2 hardware survey
  2. CS:Go hardware survey
  3. SFM hardware survey
  4. Steam VR hardware survey

What is the state of PCI passthrough or Windows VM gaming in general (virtual GPUs, etc)?

Hello all, I dual boot Windows + GNU/Linux but I find a lot of the time I spend is on my Windows partition because that's where my games are.

I can only switch to Linux for gaming when 90% of the games I play are compatible at 70%+ performance. That means native gaming is not an option - only emulation via wine or VMs.

I have Intel an 6400T processor so I'm not sure if my processor even supports PCI passthrough. I know there was work on "virtual GPUs" so that you don't have to do PCI passthrough. What is the status on that?

So I'm trying to get DXVK running on my wineprefix.

I'm using Lutris. I followed the instructions and ran the setup script on my target wineprefix, and now I'm not sure what is next.

I tried enabling DXVK_HUD but it is not showing up in any games, and now I'm not sure it's even installed correctly. Did I miss a step? Need advice on how to proceed. Thanks!

Ark:Survival Evolved (APPEARS) to have massive memory leak?[Ubuntu 18][NVIDIA]

So I'm not 100% sure if this is a memory leak or if im doing something wrong(Very new to Linux) but this game ran (relatively) find on Ubuntu 17 but when I upgraded to Ubuntu 18 I have had some major issues.

Whenever I join a server I can load in just fine(doesn't crash on loading screen) and can walk around for about 5-10 seconds after which my entire system freezes for multiple minutes during which i cant alt+tab, use SUPER(windows) key or switch to a tty(virtual terminal). My only solution is to use MagicKeys REISUB or to SSH in and do "killall ShooterGame".

I recently thought that it could be due to swap so I started looking at ram usage around when this freeze occurs and what I found is that ark consumes 8GB of ram (my max ram) and consumes 8GB of SWAP(my max swap is 16GB)

Im guessing its maxing the ram which makes the system force some of the game into swap then it tries to load it so it slows everything wayyyyy down to a halt. Althought im obviously no expert on this topic.

Running:Ubuntu 18(Latest updates from 'sudo apt update' and 'sudo apt upgrade')GTX 750 Ti (Factory OC) with NVIDIA Proprietary 390 drivers(From 'Addition Drivers' tab of Updates & Software)I5-5690K Non-OC CPU

Things I've Tried:- /var/log/syslog shows nothing related to this- running the game's binary through a terminal shows nothing as output(well, nothing error-related)- running the game with '-log' OR 'LOG arkOutput.txt' launch options does nothing at all(Doesn't open a log window and doesn't output or even create the 'arkOutput.txt' file)- running the game with the '-lowmemory' launch option appears to do nothing at all towards memory usage- Have tried fresh install of Ubuntu, Drivers, And Ark multiple times.- Have tried disabling steam overlay- Have tried changing swappiness value to very low numbers(including 0)

CS-GO Fullscreen-Windowed mode minimizes with Alt+Tab

Hello, I'm running Arch Linux + Gnome 3.28.1 and for some reason CSGO refuses to go windowed fullscreen mode. When set to windowed full screen mode the game will minimize for any focus change or alt+tabbing. Also, in game if I have the overlay on and I recieve a steam message I will be minimized out of my game... This is an annoying bug to happen seeing as how well CSGO runs in arch. Anyone else have this issue or have any work arounds? This happened running in both Steam runtime and flatpack installations. Thanks.

Wine And Vulkan

Hi, why don't devs working on VK9, VKD3D, DXVK and the DX12 to Vulkan thingy(can't remember the name) start working on a big project together that aims to merge all those above?

Like wine3d does with multiple DX's.

VK9 Advantages Over Normal Wine

Hi, I've seen mentioned VK9, I know that it still needs to grow a little to be used widespread.

I have a question, with the advancements in wine won't this have minimal performance loss compared to windwos in DX9 Games? If so, why is VK9 important?

FPS limiter/No VSYNC?

In Windows, Cataylst Control Center has an option to limit the framerate of all applications without toggling VSYNC. This means that if the FPS goes below my monitor's refresh rate, it doesn't lower dramatically. Is there any way to do the same thing under Linux? In particular, Linux Mint 18.3?

Anyone know how to get Visual Novels running on WINE?

I've been trying to get If my Heart had Wings running through WINE for awhile now on solus but for some reason the game refuses to even start on 3.7 and will only start through i-386. I've tried every fix I can get my hands on but the game has consistency problems when it comes to cutscenes and dialogue options. Help sorting this out and just figuring WINE out in general would be appreciated

Desktop Mouse shows up in game

I'm playing Warframe through Lutris with DXVK and everything runs flawlessly except for the fact that the desktop mouse shows up in the middle of the game. So when I'm moving the view around, the desktop mouse is moving around the screen and it is very annoying. I've tried Fullscreen and Borderless Windowed mode and that doesn't make a difference. I'm running Ubuntu 17.10 and I've tried both wine 3.5 and 3.7 staging.

I am running Linux steam in the background so that I can use my steam controller to play the game, but I don't think that has anything to do with it.

Anyone have this experience with playing games in Wine or Warframe specifically? Anything I can do to make sure the desktop mouse doesn't show up? Thanks for the help.

Lutris + DXVK

When you manage wine versions on Lutris it's really easy to install a wine or wine staging version. Wouldn't it be great to install a wine DXVK version in the same way? Any info about this?

[WIP] Guide to getting Fortnite running with wine.

This is *not* guaranteed to work. If you have any issues, send me them, and I'll change the guide. This is tested on arch, so don't send me issues if you're not on it. Also, wine-gecko is probably required. By the way, if you a battleye user like me, you are shit out of luck in terms of battle royale. );

1) Compile wine-staging-git on the AUR to grap dependencies, or get them another way, idk how

2) Download wine with my custom patches, right here:

https://me ga.nz/#!KotTyLgI!ZzEpmuE6g5VSxzGwe6KWmgL3PU_LXtyyrhYHVRLkhE4

3) Compile it, you can find a guide for how to compile wine [here](https://wiki.winehq.org/Building_Wine#Shared_WoW64)

4) Install Epic Games Launcher. Download the msi, run it through winefile (double click on it) or msiexec, and when it goes to white and red, close wine.

5) Add prefix/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Epic Games/Launcher/Portal/Binaries/Win32/EpicGamesLauncher.exe as an application in winecfg, and disable shcore for it.

6) To launch the launcher, be sure to provide it with "-SkipBuildPatchPrereq -OpenGL" parameters

7) If fortnite doesn't open when you click on it, kill the fortnite process and try, try again.

Anybody running GPU pass-through for gaming on Ubuntu 18?

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 18 and was considering trying out GPU pass-trough (this would be my first time). I'd like to know how easy it is to get the GPU back to the host machine? I ask because I want to occasionally run Windows for games, but most of the time use the Linux for machine learning ... so I would need the GPU to be available to the linux machine. Is a reboot required every-time for these back and forth changes?

Retroarch was working fine until plugging in 360 controller

Previously I was using a Rumblepad 2, everything worked swimmingly. Then I plug in the wireless receiver and connect a 360 controller, then I start up RA and my wireless keyboard and controller behave really weirdly or not at all.

When both the keyboard and controller use "udev" input driver, my keyboard left and right work at insane speeds and controller doesn't work at all.

When keyboard uses "udev" and controller uses "x", same as above.

Scratch that, tried the above again and nothing works. Since using the 360 wireless, they both just want to work when they feel like it, it seems. Outside RA, the controller and keyboard work fine for games any everything else.

Thanks for any input.

STARBO Menu Buttons Not Working in Fullscreen

When I launch STARBO in windowed mode I am able to click on the menu buttons to start the game or adjust volume, etc but when I launch in fullscreen mode none of the menu buttons work and I have to force close the game using ALT-F4. I have tried on the following systems so far with the same result:

AMD FX-9590 | 16GB DDR3-2133 | MSI RX 580 8GB Gaming X | Mesa 18.0.2 | Samsung 850 Evo 250GB | Solus 3 | Kernel 4.15.18-65.current

Intel C2D E7200 | 5GB DDR2-667 | AMD Radeon HD7570 1GB | Mesa 17.2.8 | 80GB HDD | Linux Mint 18.3 64 | Kernel 4.13.0-37.generic

Intel C2Q Q6700 | 8GB DDR2-667 | Nvidia GT 240 1GB | driver 340.104 | 120GB Mushkin SSD | Linux Mint 18.3 64 | Kernel 4.10.0-38.generic

Different distros, different hardware, different monitors/refresh, different GPU drivers, different kernel. Tried to narrow down the cause as much as I could. Any ideas ?

Windows -&gt; Linux OS Migration Planning

Greetings, humans,

I'm no stranger to Linux gaming. I've been back and forth, in the past, on Windows vs. Linux, for gaming. The ultimate deal breaker, each time, was Wine. My needs are quite simple: A multi-machine arcade emulator, and a working Wine install. Primarily, I use one program, Final Fantasy XI, which resides within the Wine install, however, in the past, I've ran into difficulties with a buggy Direct Input system, in that attaching a Dualshock 4, via USB, would cause instability, which resulted in an unplayble environment.

Q. Has anyone tested this configuration, lately? If so, what were your results? My last tests utilized Wine 2.0.

Danke!

Question : Unity 5 and Magic arena.

Magic arena is a promising upcoming Magic the gathering online game (think of heartstone for magic). It's still in closed beta but the dev are using unity 5. My question is : does unity 5 support linux easily ?

It's an important question because we still don't have a good and polished tcg experience on Linux and Magic being the greatest TCG for decades, it being available on Linux with an heartstone like level of polishness and conveniance would be huge. Heartstone has many flaws, but the level of polishness and conveniance is great.

There's also another great news about TGC game on Linux : Valve has announced artifact, a Dota 2 TGC. It's designed by Richard Garfield, the father of Magic. Valve always support Linux for some times now, it's also a great dev. Good time.

How is Oxygen Not Included?

I was looking for a chill game and stumbled upon Oxygen Not Included, it looks sweet and I like the art style. I'm looking for feedback on how it runs on Linux, I also have a few questions.

  • It's stable?
  • The game feels complete or still looks like an alpha project?
  • Does it support ultrawide monitors (21:9)?

Thanks in advance.

Trying to get a DS4 controller to work with wineskin on macOS. Please help. Thanks.

I'm using wineskin-2.6.2 with WS9Wine2.22. I just want my DS4 controller to be recognized as a input device so I can use it to play games. Is that hard to do? I mean, I tried to install x360ce, it doesn't do anything. I click on install software and select the exe but there is no output until eventually there will be a message "oops wineskin couldn't find the exe" or whatever. Same with DS4Windows. Can someone finally, once and for all, provide proper instructions for macOS users? Thanks a lot.

Just recently booted into Windows after buying a new FS monitor and hot damn freesync really is great! Gameplay is much smoother platform-wide and it's really a shame that we don't have it on Linux yet (or do we?). Is there any word on when we might see FS support mainlined, possibly with kernel 4.17, 4.18, or even 5.0?

Problem with Midair on wine with dxvk

Midair (free to play, requires steam) runs under a 64bit wine prefix (3.7), but I am not impressed by performance. When I try to run it with dxvk it says wine has not been compiled with vulkan support. I am using POL to manage wine versions. Do I need a different wine version? If so, where do I get it and how do I install it in my wine prefix? Thanks in advance for any help!

Yet another help running DOOM 2016 on linux mint thread

Hi everyone.

I feel stuck with running DOOM on Linux Mint 18.3. I have installed PlayOnLinux and set up a v-drive for DOOM, put a Steam installation there and downloaded the game itself. When I try to run the game I get 2 options: 1. setting r_renderAPI to 1 prevents the game from starting. Completely. 2. setting in to 0 leads to game crash with a non-informative log (Access Violation with an empty callstack).

The V-Drive is set up as a 64-bit installation, windows 10 (tried several with no luck), wine 3.7. The hardware includes Intel Core i5-7400 and GeForce GTX 1050 2GB (with 396 driver installed).

Any help is greatly appreciated

Witcher 3 Mods just work! LOL

Witcher 3 as most games on PC receives a lot of improvements called as mod.

As for Witcher 3 mods, manually installing is the only viable way as Nexus and Witcher 3mod manager do not even open!

Anyway, installing manually ain't that hassle as most mods are in its final release and won't receive any update.

So far the most (important) mods as AutoLoot, Fast Travel, Disable into/storybook, Slot, Nitpicker, are working...

There must be more working but I would be careful as most of them can conflict with each other...

There is a tool to fix those conflict but so far I could not make it (work) haha

Anyway, Playing Witcher 3 as on Windows + Mods and same performance...

Wine, Vulkan and Dxvk teams are amazing.

THANKS!

Organizing local/online Linux gamer tools?

I have a solid group of linux gamers that I meet with regularly (bi-weekly, though lately we've doing weekly events).

Right now we are using Google Hangouts to organize the games we plan on playing, which home it will be played at, any custom maps or models we want to have loaded and other finer details.

90% of the gamers in this group are not on Steam and now many of them are de-Googled. So we now need a new tool to organize games. Emails are currently being used but it's not as effective as we are all working and responding to emails seems to be a chore.

What are some linux based or browser based tools that other use to keep schedule games organized?

Things we do not want to use:

  • Social media
  • Steam

Also if we have to use Wine, it's a no go.

Two GPUs, one for Linux one for VM?

Hello!

Been about eight years since I have looked at linux for gaming, I run Arch on my personal laptop but my gaming rig has always been windows. Just had a few general questions I was hoping you guys could guide me through.

  • How significant is GPU pass through performance loss these days?
  • Is running a VM for games or using something like Wine the preferred method?
  • Can I use my old GTX 670 for running linux and use my GTX 1080 as a pass through to the Windows VM only?

Thanks for the help, I appreciate it!

HALP! Path of Exile players?

Hi!

First post here, please be gently :3

Rig: i7 2600k, 16BG RAM, 1070GTX, SSD, 4k 60hz display. Lutris, Wine staging 3.6, DX9, GLSL turned off. CSMT on. Nvidia proprietary drivers. Kubuntu 18.04 fresh install.

I can't get it to work smooth. Max. fps is like 30fps and there are some lag spikes occuring every 5 sec or so. I've tried things like decreasing resolution to 1920x1080, turned off post prosessing, shadows, reverb etc. No help or not difference at all... Latency is quite stable, thats not a problem. --noasync, --waitforpreload etc. have been tested too... Noasync helps a bit but not much. In Win10 I have stable 60fps and not problems at all. Am I missing some libs or something else essential?

I'm a longtime user of (K)L)X)Ubuntu since version 7.04. Only thing that keeps me dual booting to Win10 is Path of Exile. I'd like to get rid of Windows for once and for all. PoE is literally the only thing preventing it now.

Changing a distro is possible if thats going to make a difference. Arch, Mint and Fedora are quite a familiar already besides Ubuntu and its derivates.

I hope someone is running PoE as nice and smooth as I've been reading from some subs and can help me out in this situation.

I hope someone is running PoE as nice and smooth as I've been reading from some subs and can help me out in this situation.

Tip: Start WINE games faster by building with --without-fontconfig

Normally, WINE packages are built with fontconfig support, meaning if you use it in your distro, WINE will load all your fonts first (which obviously isn't relevant for the game you're trying to start)

To speed it up, you can rely on the fonts installed in your WINE prefix and build WINE with the --without-fontconfig option when you use ./configure

You can also check the AUR if you need help building in another distro

Beware - so far there is no Wine PPA for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

A bug report exists, but so far there is no PPA for Ubuntu 18.04. If you already have wine installed and you upgrade in place you're probably ok, but if you do a full wipe and install you'll be wine-less (apart from the ancient version in Ubuntu's library) for the time being.

F1 2017 strange performance

So i bought F1 2017 yesterday and i compared my benchmark results with the phoronix results ( https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=f12017-23-gpus ). However, my RX480 is somehow only producing 27-35 FPS at 1440p and everything at the highest settings. I turned V-Sync off and i think i also turned it off with env-variables for Mesa in general.

Im running Antergos, most recent updates and so on. Has anyone had those issues as well? FPS are pretty much rock stable, no noticable stuttering even at indicated 27 FPS...i'm a bit stumped. How can i check if it's running in OpenGL or Vulkan?

Civ VI - Sound drops during loading game save

I am having this random and annoying issue with Civ VI (Steam, R&F DLC). When the game is loading from save, about half way through Mr. Bean's narration, the audio stutters. At this point, Mr. Bean will either continue through his epic reading of the era's intro, or, 67% of the time, drop all sound. At this point, I have to quit, relaunch, and cross fingers. Oddly, it seems that the game loads successfully with sound after two failed attempts. Third times a charm?!

Arch Linux / i3wm Ryzen 5 1600 8GB RAM / 4GB swap fully updated

This stutter happened also on different hardware but never resulted in a loss of sound. This is really getting annoying and I am not really sure how to fix. Anyone having a similar issue or have an idea what could be causing this?

Got audio to work in Skyrim SE, but getting a slight ticking noise

So, first i tried getting Old Skyrim to work but i was having some audio issues with that. after digging a bit online, i found that i can force Xaudio2_6 native as a dll and that fixed all my audio problems with that version.

I then tried running the special edition with DXVK, but seeing online that nobody on winehq has found an audio fix, i tried forcing xaudio2_6, but that did nothing. so i forced xaudio2_7 and audio works! including voices and music, but it has a ticking noise from wherever the sound comes from.

For example if the audio is coming from the left i get ticking in my left ear and vice versa

has anybody else tried testing this?, or possibly knows a fix?

My setup is this

Overwatch + DXVK = Some sounds not rendering?

I'm not entirely sure if this is relevant to me using DXVK, but some sounds seem to not be rendering. How can I tell? Well, when I play junkrat, his weapon doesn't make the sounds that it normally should.

So I'm concerned I am missing other sounds.

  • Overwatch
  • DXVK DLLs as of May 3 2018
  • Wine 3.6-Staging

Not sure what other info to provide that's helpful in this case.

Steam in Wine generating 50gb+ logs?

Hey so I'm running Steam through wine, playing games like Deus Ex Human Revolution, Quake Live, Xenonauts, and House of the Dying Sun. In fact, those are the only games I have installed for it. When I launch winesteam through Lutris, a bunch of files are generated in the directory '~/.local/share/lutris/runners/winesteam/prefix64/drive_c/users/k/Local Settings/Application Data/CEF/User Data/Crashpad/reports'.

I'd like to know if anyone has any idea why this is happening, as it's filling up my SSD each time that I launch winesteam. These 4 games in no way reach 55gb. I googled the problem, but the only thing I could find is that the logs are being saved into the wrong location for certain people in 2016. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

World of Warcraft Beta: DXVK works

There has been a steady stream of posts asking about DXVK with WoW and the answer is always: it might work in the next expansion as they're making DX11 a requirement. I got a beta invite a couple days ago and decided to test if I can run it with DXVK. After testing it seems DXVK works fairly well, I've participated in a couple raid tests so regular gameplay works fine.

I've not done extensive performance testing, the only comparison I have done was stand at a random spot which really kills my framerate and test how it was running with Staging 3.7/Staging 3.7+PBA/Staging 3.7+DXVK by exiting game and starting with each of the three setups. Regular staging got 12 FPS, PBA had 36 FPS and DXVK 47 FPS. Regular in-game performance is usually higher. As far as CPU use with DXVK my processor stays at ~50% on all 4 cores, the other setups have 1-2 cores consistently near 90-100%.

Both fullscreen and windowed modes have some issues currently for me, but it seems those issues not DXVK related as they happen also without. I'll have to investigate further later with these. DXVK also still prints out "DXGI: CheckInterfaceSupport: No D3D10 Support", which means https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/commit/77d0424d7fc98e883eca28c075bb72e51f44ce48 may have been enough to fake D3D10 support for fixing launching the beta client.

  • CPU: i5-2320
  • GPU: GTX 960 (driver 390.48)
  • Wine: Staging 3.7
  • DXVK: built from 5e1f478
  • WoW graphics settings for the comparison: Preset 7

Gaming on a Chromebook

Hello, I've been looking at Linux distros for gaming, and I'm wondering if they'd be able to run well on my Acer Chromebook 14. I want to be able to install wine-staging-nine and run Gallium Nine, but I'm not even sure if that's possible on a Chromebook.

As far as I know, wine-staging-nine is only available through certain distros. I'm using GalliumOS currently, and it's fine, my only problem being that (as far as I know) I can't install wine-staging-nine.

What is the best gaming Linux distro for Chromebook specifically? Also, can Chromebooks even run Gallium Nine at all? All help appreciated.

Installing Ubuntu MATE 18.04 on the Gigabyte Aero 15x v8-CF2

I recently took the plunge and shelled out for a Gigabyte Aero 15x v8-CF2. Spec highlights are:

  • Intel Core i7-8750H (6 cores, 12 HT)
  • Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 Max-Q (2048 CUDA Cores, 8GB VRAM)
  • 16GB DDR4 RAM (Upgraded later to 32 GB with the addition of another 16GB DIMM)
  • 512 GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (with a 2nd spare NVMe/SATA PCI-E slot available)
  • 15.6" narrow-bezel 1080p IPS Panel @ 144Hz

I love this machine, and it's perfect for my needs. I do not plan to dual boot, but I plan to get a new 1TB Samsung 970 NVMe to put in the 2nd slot, when they come out/when my bank account recovers.

The insides look like this.

Installing was not quite straightforward, and since I couldn't find anything online detailing other peoples' experiences, I thought I'd post my own.

Booting from USB

First thing I did when I unboxed it was boot Clonezilla from a USB drive to take a full disk image of the Windows install. This was not straightforward.

This machine does not support booting in 'Legacy BIOS' mode at all, so if the OS doesn't support UEFI mode, you're snookered.

The standard firmware settings were mostly fine (supporting all USB modes, etc.), so I just disabled SecureBoot.

Fortunately, Clonezilla's Ubuntu-based testing branch does boot in EFI mode. I downloaded the version based on Ubuntu Bionic from:

https://clonezilla.org/downloads/download.php?branch=alternative_testing_2

...then blatted it onto a smallish USB drive with Tuxboot (see install details at https://tuxboot.org/download/), and then told the Aero to boot off USB via the F12 boot menu.

Clonezilla

I then connected a network cable from the Aero into the same gigabit switch to which I have my fileserver connected (an HP Proliant Microserver, since you asked). I told Clonezilla to use 'partclone > nttfsclone > dd' mode to take images of all partitions on the Aero's NVMe, via SSH, and then take and verify SHA256 checksums of each partition.

This took a few hours, but I am not going to dual-boot this thing, so I want a backup, just in case.

Ubuntu-MATE 18.04 LTS Install

Using Tuxboot, I prepared a new Ubuntu-MATE Bionic Live USB and booted it from the F12 menu.

I chose the 'Try out Ubuntu' grub option, just to make sure Ubuntu would boot to the desktop on this machine. It did. So far, so good.

I initiated a full install, erasing all existing partitions, and using an encrypted root in LVM. The install went normally, and I rebooted when prompted, removing the USB drive before the POST.

First Boot Failure

After the Gigabyte POST splash screen, the screen just went black.

I swore repeatedly.

The neighbours called the police.

After calming down, I googled on another machine, and found that this was probably a combination of two issues:

  1. The nouveau (Open-source Nvidia) driver does not support Nvidia graphics cards made since the Bush presidency. It locks up the entire system if you try. Thanks, Obama.
  2. Intel Coffee-Lake support is apparently still in Alpha, despite various Ubuntu forum posts saying it will be standard as of Bionic, in kernel 4.15.

Hacks to Get the Damn Thing to Boot

  • First, to prevent nouveau ballsing things up, I disabled the discrete graphics in the EFI setup menu, forcing it to use the Intel on-board graphics.

    • I re-enabled it later after installing the Nvidia closed-source binary blob driver, which threatens our software freedom, but has the virtue of actually working.
  • Second I modified the grub kernel line to include i915.alpha_support=1.

    • Subsequent reboots after failed boots make the grub menu visible. Using this menu, I edited the default boot entry to include i915.alpha_support=1. Mine looks like this:

      linux   /vmlinuz-4.15.0-20-generic root=/dev/mapper/ubuntu--mate--vg-root ro  quiet splash i915.alpha_support=1 $vt_handoff
      
    • Once booted successfully, I made this change permanent by appending this to the 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT' variable at the top of the /etc/default/grub file. Like so:

      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i915.alpha_support=1"
      
    • I then ran 'sudo grub-mkconfig' after editing the /etc/default/grub file to apply the change.

Successful Boot

Woo! It booted to the desktop!

But without the Nvidia card, this is just an overpriced ultrabook, so I then used the 'Additional Drivers' dialog in the 'Software & Updates' applet to install the 'NVIDIA driver metapackage from nvidia-driver-390 (proprietory, tested)'.

Fortunately, once installed, this does all the blacklisting of the nouveau kernel module automagically, meaning there is no risk of it trying to use the smashy-crashy nouveau driver.

I then rebooted, then re-enabled the discrete graphics within the EFI menu.

Successful Boot with Nvidia Graphics

And that's it! Everything is now nice & stable in Ubuntu!

I installed Steam, Crossover, etc. to make sure all my favourite games work.

I installed Tombraider (2013) (holy crap, has it really been that long?), maxxed-out all the graphics settings and performed a benchmark. The FPS never fell below 180.

Any questions?

Since info about Linux on this laptop is very sparse online, I'll be happy to answer any reasonable questions about this, to the best of my ability.

Testing requested for new (3.3+) xinput/gamepad support

Since wine 3.3 new sdl based gamepad/xinput support arrived in wine.

This should make (at least some) gamepads recognized in wine without workarounds like dumbxinputemu, x360ce or koku-xinput.

Now Aric Stewart is requesting feedback at the following bug about xinput support

If you have a gamepad and some xinput game (specially the ones mentioned at the bug report), you can try it under wine 3.3+ with no such workarounds, and please report in that bug, that will give Aric feedback so he can close the bug or maybe fix any remaining issues.

Also, since the new support uses SDL, I believe you can set SDL_GAMECONTROLLERCONFIG environment variable as explained in koko-xinput if your mapping is wrong.

Also note in some games bad mapping maybe can be fixed by running "wine control" and disabling controllers there (that controls dinput support that sometimes conflicts with xinput support).

Also the following thread can have interesting information, as well as this article

If for some reason you can't or won't report at the bugtracker, feel free to post any thoughts, issues, workarounds etc in this thread :)

Any testing and reporting at the aforementioned bug will surely be appreciated by Aric.

Heads up: Steam Client and any spawned windows can't be dragged when in HiDPI mode on Linux Mint with Cinnamon.

First off, for those who are experiencing this and need to move a Steam window to a more convenient location, no need to panic. At least on Mint with Cinnamon, holding down Alt and dragging works (this should work for any window for that matter).

Of course, I'd very much like to know if there is a proper fix for this. I've confirmed that disabling UI scaling makes the window movable again, but that's not an option on a 4K monitor. Also, this hasn't happened on Unity, so maybe something in Cinnamon settings is causing this?

Mouse movement not fully registering in games

I rarely run games on linux through wine but lately I've seriously tried. My biggest issue seems that for most games, mouse input doesn't fully register, meaning every bit of mouse movement I do moves the cursor normally but with wine games I've tried, I have to move the mouse a lot more for it to register the movement. I could change the mouse speed but it still seems weird. Is it something to do with acceleration or polling rate in wine?

Top 100 games played on Steam (May 2018)

At the end of last year I posted here about an analysis of the top 10 and top 100 games played on Steam and how many had Linux support.

The results then were:

  • 6 out of the top 10

  • 47 out of the top 100

The results today are:

  • 7 out of the top 10

  • 42 out of the top 100

I also took a look at daily peak players and found that at today's peak 1,719,417 out of 4,025,075 or about 43% of players were playing a Linux supported game. The numbers are quite heavily skewed by PUBG which accounts for 1,599,724 players at peak today. Excluding PUBG, we have 1,719,417 out of 2,425,351 players or around 70% of players playing Linux supported games.

Gaming on KVM/QEMU without GPU passthrough ?

/Gaming on a VM is pretty decent nowadays since it works quite well on VMWare Workstation since version 11.

I do also know that you can play on VirtualBox, but peformance is bad and glitches often happens. IIRC, some people said this was because its 3D renderer was based on Wine's, and that'd why things would never work properly since "it's garbage" (correct me if I'm wrong).

 

But what about KVM/QEMU then, is there some sort of graphics API command translation like VMWare workstation does (so without GPU passthrough) ?

What about the performance and drawbacks ?

I am planning to buy a gaming laptop. I will definitely install Linux on it (probably dual-booting with Windows), so I am fishing here for advice.

Budget : around 1200$ (can go a little higher if needed)

What I care about :

  • Linux compatibility : First and foremost. No driver issues, no locked UEFI bullshit.

  • A good GPU : at least a GTX1050 Ti. I am open to AMD also.

  • A good CPU : well-balanced with the CPU, so I am guessing a i7 or a good i5. Also open to AMD.

  • RAM : at least 8 GB, with the possibility to upgrade.

  • Disk : SSD at least 256 GB. HDD is a no-no.

  • A decent keyboard

  • Can be opened easily or at least without risk of breaking it apart. Seriously, how the fuck can manufacturers sell something that cannot be opened for dust cleaning ? It's like selling something with a death countdown on it.

What I don't care about :

  • Optical drive

  • USB-C

  • Good speakers : I use a headset most of the time.

  • Silence : Bring on the decibels.

  • Any screen resolution higher than 1920x1080.

  • Huge battery life : It's going to stay plugged most of the time.

  • ** Wifi norm AC ** : As if my internet service was good enough for that.

  • A numpad

  • The design : I don't care if it is ugly as a brick.

  • Christmas ornaments : RGB lighting, fancy colors, "look at me I'm a gamerz" inscriptions, etc.

What would be nice (but not a deal-breaker if there isn't) :

  • Metal body

  • Non-glossy screen

  • Backlit keyboard

  • 2nd drive bay

  • Decent camera and integrated mic

GTA V/Overwatch + 396.24 + DXVK = Artefacting

So I've been running 390.xx with GTA V and Overwatch + DXVK quite well (specifically 0.42 of DXVK).

I saw that 396.24 is now available in the Nvidia Graphics Driver PPA for Ubuntu, and I've heard good things, so figured I'd try it out.

Problem is, I get artefacting up the wazoo with both GTA V and Overwatch, where before I was not getting artefacting at all. And I mean, the kind of artefacting that looks like the GPU is dying (it's not dying btw).

I tried switching the GTA V install to the DXVK daily build for today (May 3 2018), but that did not resolve it.

I then tried switching the GTA V install from WINE 3.5-staging too 3.7-staging, that did not resolve it.

I suspect I'm missing something small here, but I'm not sure what. Anyone with some keen ideas?

  • Ubuntu 17.10 (will move to 18.04 soon)
  • 3x1920x1080 (game plays on middle monitor)
  • GTX 960
  • i7-980x
  • 24GB RAM
  • XFCE + Compiz
  • Lutris

Albion Online

The wife and I have been having a lot of fun playing Albion Online the past week. The Linux support is pretty impressive, as far as games of this scale go. I had to manually install libsdl2-2.0-0 on two out of three systems, all running the same patch level of Mint 18.3, so that's something to keep in mind. Otherwise it's stable and pretty fun...

Installing Mesa-Git and LLVM-SVN

In order to be able to properly use DXVK on my Vega 64 GPU I need to upgrade to the latest Mesa-Git and LLVM-SVN. I am running on Fedora 28. The upgrade is rather easy via these two repositories:

https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/che/mesa/ https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/che/llvm/

However, the Wine package has the older Mesa 18.0.1 and LLVM 6.0.0 as dependencies. If I force an upgrade via dnf update --best --allowerasing, both Mesa and LLVM are properly updated to the latest versions via above repositories, however, Wine is automatically removed because it depends on the older Mesa / LLVM versions.

If I then try to reinstall Wine again, it wants to downgrade Mesa and LLVM again in order to install wine... Does anyone happen to know how I can install Wine / keep Wine installed with the latest Mesa / LLVM versions? Thank you very much in advance :)

[Wine] Nvidia 396.24 Next-Gen Compiler Comparison in Overwatch

I made a video comparing how Nvidia's new and old compilers perform in Overwatch.
(Timestamps: 00:15 - New Compiler and 06:52 - Old Compiler)

It appears that the new compiler significantly reduces shader compilation related stuttering in Overwatch. You can find all my specs and distro information in the description of the video.

Grim Dawn doesn't launch, just locks up

Dark Souls III DXVK Nvidia Beta 396.24

Im unable to record video for this one as just opening OBS drops frames by 70%. but if you play the game with the newer beta drivers 396.24, performance is much much better. up to a 20 - 30 fps differnce for me. do remember that these are beta drivers and system lockups are common, just closing OBS caused my whole system to freeze.

PSA: (wine) dark souls prepare to die being removed from steam

I'm unsure if the "remastered" version it is being replaced with will be as wine friendly. If you already have the game on steam you will still be able to download and play it after it gets delisted, but you won't be able to buy it after that happens. Unless feral does a port...

What is gaming on Linux REALLY like?

So I'm no stranger to Linux. I used it as my main system for about, six months I'd say. Started with Ubuntu and eventually moved up to Antergos (starting from "Base" as they call it). But during this time, I was always dual booting with Windows in order to play the many games I had in my Steam library. I didn't really bother trying many games in WINE, POL, etc because as a laptop user I didn't have any room to lose a few frames.

I got a new computer recently, and have been running straight Windows. Honestly, I'm really not a fan, and would love to go back to using Linux full time. But how is the compatibility for most games? Will I notice many problems playing games anywhere from 2000-2018? The only one I'm a little bit worried about is Overwatch, which apparently works but still has some problems. I can dual boot if I need to, but would rather not bother with Windows at all. I know with some tweaky magic you can run games pretty well through a VM with GPU passthrough, but I have a Ryzen processor without an igpu and only 4GB of RAM, so I don't really have the extra resources to run them that way.

Nvidia Drivers 396.24 Released

Added support for the following GPUs:

GeForce GTX 1050 with Max-Q Design

Quadro P3200

Quadro P4200

Fixed a regression that caused the current MetaMode's ViewPortIn and ViewPortOut settings to be preserved across RandR modesets.

The driver now clears ViewPortIn and ViewPortOut when the mode is set through RandR, restoring the behavior that existed prior to the regression.

Improved error reporting in the Vulkan driver if libnvidia-glvkspirv.so, the new Vulkan SPIR-V compiler added in 396.24, cannot be found at run time.

Fixed performance regressions and corruption issues in the new Vulkan SPIR-V compiler.

Added support for 32-bit PCI domains throughout the NVIDIA driver stack.

This support is required for running Linux VMs with recent versions of the pci_hyperv driver on top of Hyper-V.

Updated the SLI Mosaic configuration page in nvidia-settings to make more layout configurations available, including configurations that do not utilize all of the available displays.

Added reporting of EGL information to nvidia-settings.

Added support for a new Vulkan SPIR-V compiler which reduces shader compilation time and shader system memory consumption.

A new environment variable can be used to enable (1) (default) or disable (0) the new compiler if errors in existing applications are found:

__GL_NextGenCompiler=<int>

The following application profile setting with the same definition is also available:

{ "pattern" : [], "profile" : [ "NextGenCompiler", <int> ] }

The old compiler is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.

Updated nvidia-installer to recognize partial libglvnd installations which are missing only optional libraries.

This allows the installer to continue installation by default when libglvnd is installed without libOpenGL.so, as is frequently the case with distribution-provided libglvnd installations.

Improved performance of the following Vulkan APIs:

vkAllocateMemory()

vkBindBufferMemory()

vkBindImageMemory()

Fixed a bug that caused the NV_CTRL_STEREO_SWAP_MODE setting for quad-buffered stereo visuals to not be preserved across modesets or VT switches.

Added a new global X configuration option "AllowExternalGpus", which defaults to disabled, but can be enabled to allow eGPUs and other surprise-removable GPUs to be configured with X screens.

Added support for X.Org xserver ABI 24 (xorg-server 1.20).

Improved nvidia-bug-report.sh to check for kern.log which is the default kernel log-file location for many Debian-based Linux distributions.

Fixed a bug which could cause X servers that export a Video Driver ABI earlier than 0.8 to crash when running X11 applications which call XRenderAddTraps().

Battlefield 1 has a weird inversed input issue

Basically mouse input is just messed up. Trying to look in any direction forces the view in the opposite direction with some sort of jittery lag on top. But the fps is fine.

It was working fine a week or so ago, then suddenly this issue popped up. I'm using Arch Linux, wine-staging 3.7, latest dxvk dll from here, win10 prefix with steam, origin and vcrun2013 installed. Wine's optional dependencies are installed too.

I think I remember someone else having this issue before. It's strange because BF4 runs fine in the same prefix. As a last resort I'll try a new prefix, but I'm averse to doing that since origin can be such a pain with importing games.

Can't get SOMA to run with 2 screens attached

The game runs fine, if I only have my monitor plugged in. As soon as I also attach my TV, the game is stuck at the loading stage right after launch, with my screens both black. I've tried deleting the settings and manually setting the resolution in the config file, to no avail. Anyone with more luck?

This is starting to become an annoying pattern with a lot of (Unity?) games on Linux. If you deviate from the most basic screen setup, problems are likely. The older the game, the worse.

Can you play Windows games on Linux using a VirtualBox?

So I've been going between Windows and Linux for a long time. The only thing that is preventing me from leaving that shitty spyware is games. Even though the gaming scene has drastically improved over the last years since I first started using Linux, it is still lacking. The game I want to play is Paladins. The game used to run on Wine, but ever since they implemented the anti-cheat, it can no longer run. I don't want to dual boot. So can I play online games on Maximum using a VirtualBox on Ubuntu? Since the game is an online fps, I want to be able to play with a decent frame rate.

My laptop is failry powerful. I have a Lenovo Legion Y520, spec:

RAM: 16 GB DDR4

Nividia GeForce 1050ti 4 GB

Processor: 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ

Paladins specification(recommended) :

VideoCard: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 / AMD Radeon HD 6950 or better with 768 MB+ of VRAM (DirectX 11 Compatible)

CPU: Intel Core i5-750, 2.67 GHz / AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 GHz

GTA5 does not run via Steam with Wine-staging 3.7

I just purchased GTA5 since others have been able to run it with recent versions of Wine. I am able to login to steam (with a blank web interface for most areas) However, Wine displays a poorly formatted Social Club login screen and a dialog box when launching the game:

env WINEPREFIX="/home/jeff/.wine" wine C:windowscommandstart.exe /Unix /home/jeff/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/Public/Desktop/Steam.lnk -no-cfe-sandbox

"The program subprocess.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close" "Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x00000034 in 64-bit code (0x000000018314b35e)."

The social club login screen then refreshes and most of the page is missing (including the ability to login). The logs and term output reference a problem with a certificate used by the Social Club launcher but I don't know if that is the root cause.

I included the end of the terminal output as well as the cef_log.txt output.

I'm running mint 18.3 using the wine repos. I'm new to wine so does anyone have tips for troubleshooting this?

Is there a step by step guide to build dxvk on Linux (i.e. Ubuntu)?

Hi,

As per subject, is there a step-by-step guide to build dxvk on Linux (i.e. Ubuntu LTS?). What I'm looking for is something which mentions all the dependencies with clear install instructions (unfortunately the README.md is not very precise in this regard...)

Cheers!

What games have savedata crossplatform with Windows?

Hi!

Before all: sorry if the question is silly or stupid!

I'm doing a whole project regarding games and their savedata (tr;dr: is a savedata manager ) and I'm going to "port" the software on Linux.

Or at least this is was my idea.

The software aim very high: want to do something truly undone.

So I was thinking to make a complete cross-platform save sharing: Start a game on Windows and continue to play on the Linux version of the game, or vice versa.

Because I'm a very newbie Linux user and I never played any Linux games, I have to design this very well before actually moving into this world.

Now, would you like to help me answering these 2 questions:

  • Do you actually know in what frequency savegames are straight compatible (= no binary or hex modification required) through the Windows and Linux version of the same game? Can you make some examples?

  • There is really need for an "homemade cloud" and backup savedata managing for Linux? There are a lot of users that didn't use something like Steam Cloud and want to do something more "complicated" but more personal and flexible?

Sorry for the silly questions. I'm going to install my Linux Mint for gaming for the first time, so please be patient :D

New wrappers seem to have stopped working for me, what am I doing wrong?

Okay, so to this point in my wine-using career, I've been able to make new wrappers through wineskin winery no problem. However, a few weeks ago I tried making one for my windows Steam account and it just stopped working. I was able to install Steam through the .exe, but it told me there were no new executables (I checked, there were) and after manually picking it through the advanced options, it just refused to work.

Furthermore, it won't install anything through winetricks. It just skips to "winetricks commands finished" without actually doing anything, and it won't let me try anything again until I've killed wineskin processes.

Weirdly, though, I can still run all my old wrappers no problem.

QEMU Performance Without GPU Passthrough?

I hear that QEMU is a good virtualization software. I’ve tried to use Virtualbox, but the performance was bad even for basic tasks. I want to avoid GPU passthrough, because I hate doing things that I don’t understand, because if I screw it up, I have to figure out how to put it back. Is the performance at least on level with physical Windows performance (like 75% instead of 99%)?

If I have to do GPU passthrough, I found a guide I would be comfortable using, but it seemed to be somewhat unpopular. Is there any major reason this guide is bad?:

Coffee Crisis - Final Mixer/Twitch testing on Linux!

Thanks for the support last time!

This is our first game with Mixer & Twitch integration, and it's been invaluable to get feedback on timing, voting frequency, etc. The "big" issue we've had to deal with is that Mixer testing requires individual privileges be set for each streamer participating before a public release.

Thank you Linux friends! You can request a key to test here: https://megacatstudios.com/pages/coffee-crisis-playtest-request

Last time through, linux gaming helped us with... - Large sized monitor resolution bugs - Some mixer timing bugs - Linux specific controller bug

Thanks in advance!

Unable to launch Dying Light on Ubuntu 18.04

I was playing last night on ubuntu budgie 18.04 and decided to switch to regular Ubuntu 18.04 and now the game will not start.

  

After clicking "Play Dying Light", I get a messing in terminal saying that:

D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace

dbus[3525]: arguments to dbus_type_is_basic() were incorrect, assertion "dbus_type_is_valid (typecode) || typecode == DBUS_TYPE_INVALID" failed in file ../../../dbus/dbus-signature.c line 323.

This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.

CSGO Framerate on Ubuntu

Hello all,

I'm here to ask for some advice: I recently upgraded my CPU, motherboard, and ram (Ryzen 5 1600, Asus B350-F, 8 Gb DDR4 2133 MHz but one stick is dead so only 4 Gb for now) hoping to get some better frames. However, I'm still getting an average of ~80 FPS with bad stuttering issues (often when there is "action" the frame rate drops significantly). The game is certainly playable; it just degrades my performance. I will admit that my GPU is a rather weak Radeon HD 5770. However, I see benchmarks where people have the same GPU and worse specs getting better, more consistent frame rate. Could there be something I'm missing?

UT4 - No sound.

Hello, last week, I was trying out UT4 (because the Linux port of both the game and the engine itself, UE4, have utterly broken renderers, probably related to their OpenGL implementation.)

With DXVK and Wine-Staging-3.6 setup on Gentoo, I would give it a near-platinum rating. Very playable on medium settings with my GTX 970.

However, I have since had to re-install my gentoo setup due to a compiler configuration issue. Without remembering my exact setup, I have gotten wine-staging, dxvk, xact, dsound all configured to run UT4 again. However, while everything seems to be in order, there is no sound. Simply no sound is being played from the game, and no pulseaudio source is created. Tried outputting sound to either alsa or pulse, no dice. I had it working last time, I am not sure what is different this time.

wireless xbox 360 controller randomly changing buttons while playing Halo 2 PC

I am running into a very peculiar little issue when playing Halo 2: Project Cartographer under wine on Ubuntu 18.04 (ran into same issue on 17.10). Out of the box the gamepad works flawlessly but in Halo 2 PC the axis and buttons are all wrong (and the game doesn't allow me to remap them). Remapping or changing order in jstest-gtk has no effect.

I managed to get the mapping right by using an xinput.dll I got from x360ce and also got the same by using kozec's (https://github.com/kozec/dumbxinputemu/releases/tag/v0.3.3)[dumbxinputemu]. But for some reasons every now and then while playing the axis and buttons get all mangled again for just maybe 5 to 10 seconds, and then it goes back to normal.

Other Wine games like Halo 1 Custom Edition do not suffer from this. Same goes for native linux games. No problems there.

Does anyone have any idea what this might possibly be?

Disabling Mouse Acceleration in Ubuntu Mate 18.04

Hey, so I finally switched over to Linux full time (sort of accidentally while not paying attention while partitioning; oops) and I'm really digging it so far.

However, I'm pretty sure I have mouse acceleration enabled somehow and I hate mouse acceleration and can't seem to get it to go away. I generally play a lot of casual games so it doesn't matter all that much unless I'm playing Dota 2 and it becomes really hard to play with any sort of accuracy. I have tried to use the -useforcedmparms -noforcemacce lauch options but it didn't seem to change anything.

The 'Mouse Preferences' in Mate seem to have sliders for Pointer Speed and Sensitivity but there isn't an option to turn it "off" they are both at the "Slowest" or "Lowest" they can go.

played (game playtime tracker) v0.1.0

Hello fellow Linux gamers! I just tagged v0.1.0 of played, a game playtime tracker.

Current features

  • play game [executable [args...]]: Tracks session start and end time. If executable and arguments are not provided, starts with the last known ones.
  • Experimental idle time tracking using xprintidle (not shown in reports yet though).
  • stats [-n|--limit limit] [game]: shows total sessions and playtime for games.
  • last [-n|--limit limit]: show last games played.
  • sessions [game]: show individual sessions and their length.
  • Uses sqlite database internally, so you can run queries on the data yourself.
  • Can track Lutris games with: played play game lutris lutris:rungame/gameid.
  • Can track Steam games if you set launch options to played play game %command%.

I would appreciate if you give it a spin, and drop me some feedback, either by commenting here, or by opening an issue!

I Need Your Support For Something I Discovered About GOG. Not Respecting Their DRM-Free Policy.

If you guys want GOG to wake up I need your support by upvoting, sharing, and commenting on this post here. https://www.reddit.com/r/gog/comments/8fhbxo/gog_failed_at_something_that_made_me_drive_toward/

As many of you know GOG never made a GOG Galaxy for us and we've been waiting for years for the day to come. I wanted to play a game that I successfully made it run and what is stopping me to enjoy this awesome game is not being able to run GOG Galaxy, but also they are forcing me and others to run GOG Galaxy so that we can have online features. This is against what DRM-Free and what we agreed on. DRM-Free means that when we buy a game we shouldn't have any restriction whatsoever, that the game is fully ours and we have all the features included with it, and it doesn't matter whether we run Windows, macOS or Linux. they didn't respect that and I do not want CD PROJEKT RED running away from this, because if we let it happen they will keep doing it again, telling the lie that GOG Galaxy is optional and we will wait longer, perhaps we will never have this damn client. So please, if DRM-Free means a lot to you, support me.

Purple Martians (A free game I made)

This is a free game I wrote that works in linux:

https://www.allegro.cc/depot/PurpleMartians

I have been working on this game for 20 years. Its been through many changes.

I have just recently released version 7.0 and it's never been as polished and bug free.

Its written in C and uses the game library 'Allegro' which means that it can run on many different platforms.

It works exactly the same across windows and linux, including 8 player LAN networked multiplayer.

I have tested it on the following systems: Windows XP Windows 7 Windows 10 ubuntu-16.04.4-desktop-amd64 ubuntu-17.10.1-desktop-amd64 linuxmint-18.3-cinnamon-64bit elementaryos-0.4.1-stable.20180214 antergos-18.4-x86_64 CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveGNOME-1708.iso CentOS-7-x86_64-LiveKDE-1708.iso Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-27-1.6

The game is a simple platformer in the spirit of mario, lode runner, etc. You run around a level, shooting bad guys, throwing bombs, riding rockets, getting items like keys and switch blocks.

When you play in multiplayer mode, you have the option to cooperate with the other players, or try to kill them too!

I hand drew all the bitmaps, and coded everything from scratch. The networked game play was the hardest. I use the library 'libnet' to get a platform independent way to create network connections and exchange packets. From there I created my own custom methods for synchronizing the game state.

The display methods are really slick too: - You can switch from full screen to windowed mode with F12. - You can resize and move the window the normal way by clicking and dragging. - You can zoom in and out of the level with F5 and F6 All of these can be done in the middle of playing a game!

How much would you pay for something as awesome as that?

But wait! Don't answer yet! There's more!

It also comes with a very well done level editor so you can create your own levels. It has a very nice set of help screens, with colored text, graphics and animations.

All for the low low price of $0

So give my game a try and send me a comment, or better, a new level I can play.

Trouble running If My Heart Had Wings with patch in Wineskin

So, when I want to play a Steam game that doesn't have a Mac version, I run the Windows version of Steam through Wineskin. Usually, this works just fine. And the visual novel If My Heart Had Wings works just fine as well, with the aid of a few Winetricks and K-Lite codecs. But IMHHW notoriously received an atrocious, at times unreadable translation and heavy censorship, so fans collaborated on a patch to retranslate the game and restore content that had been cut or censored, and when that patch is installed, the game cannot save or load. While quicksaving and quickloading from the menu above the textbox after starting the game from the beginning works, clicking save or load from any menu causes a near instantaneous crash. My computer is running OSX Yosemite and my Wineskin wrapper version is Wineskin 2.6.2 and its engine is WS9Wine2.22. If more information is needed I can hopefully provide it. I just want to play this game in a way that I can read it and understand it! Thanks in advance for any help!

Vanquish refuses to take the right monitor/resolution

I installed Vanquish via Lutris, I have two monitors, one is 1080p and the other is 1680x1050. No matter what, if both monitors are on, Vanquish will open in either of them, but it will think it's in the second (1050p) monitor, the game options say Monitor 1, but I can't change that, and the resolution doesn't go higher than 1680x1050.

Here's what I tried:

  • Setting the game to fullscreen, windowed, and borderless
  • Moving the game from one monitor to the other
  • From Lutris, setting the game to launch in either monitor 1 or monitor 2, makes no difference
  • Added -w 1920 -h 1080 to steam launcher
  • Turned off second monitor via xrandr: Now this actually works, but I'm not gonna turn off my goddam monitor every time I want to play this game. I thought that if I turned it off, launched the game, set it to 1080p, then turned on the other monitor, the game would remember and stay on 1080p but nope.

Using arch linux and i3, if that's relevant.

Stream Output support has landed in wined3d!

Wine 3.7 brings an important improvement in d3d11 support: Stream Output.

Somehow it's not in the release notes, but this is an important milestone, and a missing feature that was affecting almost all Unity 5 games in d3d11 mode (many are d3d11 exclusive).

Ever run a unity game and noticed invisible or partially invisible models? This has now been fixed for good.

This will bring most unity 5 games from basically "garbage" support to "gold" or platinum" so... You know the deal!!:

Now is the moment to test your unity 5 games and report how it's working on the wine appdb, also report any remaining bugs in wine bugzilla.

This all goes thanks to the great ongoing work by the wine devs in improving wine d3d support, particularly in this release, we can thank: Józef Kucia, Henri Verbeet, Matteo Bruni and Nikolay Sivov, with special mention to newcomer Valentin Gabriel Mitrea. Thank you guys and to everyone involved in reporting and debugging the issues!!!!!!!!

The Wine Title I Played Most This Week Was...

Hi all. The title says it all. What did you use Wine for most this past week? Please list only one and any special details of making it work. I hope this will be a nice way for all of us to discover some titles.

For me, it was: Star Wars, Republic Commando

This from 2004 or 5 I think. Newer Wine versions don't run it (at least my Steam version). I was running it on 2.12 Staging via POL. Also, I was using a host of mods from moddb.com for wider, higher res textures (I was playing at 1440p), slowing down the mouse, and loading the main menu correctly, etc. It's highly recommended. It's my favorite era of Star Wars, the voice acting is terrific, all the expected franchise elements are there (music, sounds, etc), and the single player game is carefully crafted in a manner increasingly rare in this multiplayer-first age.

Hint: Use Ferals GameMode to set your Nvidia GPU to Performance mode

The new GameMode version in git master gained the ability to execute custom user scripts.
So i thought why not use it with nvidia-settings to set the GPU also into performance mode in addition to the CPU.

I used the example gamemode.ini, put it to /usr/share/gamemode/ and added this on the end:

[custom]
; Custom scripts (executed using the shell) when gamemode starts and ends
start=notify-send "GameMode started"
    nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUPowerMizerMode=1

end=notify-send "GameMode ended"

Tutorial: Installing DXVK in PlayOnLinux
  1. Download "wine-staging-3.5-x86_64.tar.gz" from: https://lutris.net/files/runners/ Extract it to: /home/your_user_name/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-amd64/
  2. Create a 64 bit virtual drive in PlayOnLinux and select "staging-3.5-x86_64" as the wine version, lets assume we name the virtual drive as DXVK
  3. Download "VulkanSDK-1.0.65.0-Installer.exe" from: https://vulkan.lunarg.com/sdk/home#windows and install it into virtual drive
  4. Open virtual drive's directory and put "winevulkan.json" from my archive into: /drive_c/windows/
  5. Open regedit for virtual drive from PlayOnLinux and import "Vulkan_1.reg and Vulkan_2.reg" from my archive
  6. Open PlayOnLinux and select the virtual drive DXVK from configure menu and click on "Make a new shortcut from this virtual drive" find "cube" from the list and select it, name the shortcut as "cube_vulkan_test" or something like that and launch it. If it works you will see a spinning cube in a small window, that means vulkan is working.
  7. Assuming vulkan is working, we can install dxvk. Open virtual drive's directory and put 64 bit dll's from my archive into: /drive_c/windows/system32/ and 32 bit dll's into: /drive_c/windows/syswow64/ You can find latest dxvk dll's from: https://haagch.frickel.club/files/dxvk/latest/
  8. Open Configure Wine for our DXVK wirtual drive from PlayOnLinux and set "d3d11 and dxgi" to native in Libraries tab. That's it.

If you want to enable DXVK hud; click on your game's or steam's (if you are testing a steam game) shortcut in PlayonLinux and hit the Configure button, then in the configuration window select Miscellaneous tab, at the bottom you will see a field that say "Command to exec before running the program" add this line in that field and close the configuration window.

export DXVK_HUD=devinfo,fps

AMD or Nvidia for emulation on Linux?

This seems like a hard choice: I was thinking of getting a Nvidia 1050ti/1060 for Dolphin/Cemu/PCSX2+3. Goal is mainly 1080p but I also have a 4k monitor which I'd experiment with if it didn't cost too much extra.

Was thinking Nvidia because the consensus seems to be it's better for emulation. But then I got told on /buildapc that Nvida has driver issues on Linux, and that AMD is better supported.

Anyone have any advice/experiences/recommendations?

Back to trying Linux gaming after the recent project dx-vk!

My config is i5 7400, 16gb DDR4, GTX 1070 running on a fresh Antergos install. Proprietary driver is installed and running:

[forchita@tarc ~]$ lspci -k | grep -A 2 -E "(VGA|3D)"
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP104 [GeForce GTX 1070] (rev a1)
    Subsystem: Device 196e:11a0
    Kernel driver in use: nvidia

I installed these wine packages and created a 64 bit Wine prefix and installed Steam. I then installed dx_vk using $ setup_dxvk64 and configured the dlls as native in winecfg.

I linked the games folder from a separate Partition and it was recognized by Steam. When running it, I get the splash screen, then the intro videos. Then in the menu, I can hear the music but nothing shows up. The screen stays dark.

Can you guys help me? I suspect it's the redist. Should I install them with winetricks or manually? I know this game works: see this video

Thanks in advance!

Paladins On Linux in 2018?

Has anyone had any experience playing Paladins on linux in 2018? It's one of my must have games, cause i really enjoy playing it. I'd even be willing to buy a product like Crossover if it could manage to play Paladins at a decent FPS (Stable 30+)

I hear Overwatch works fine when using Crossover (a game I personally don't find as enjoyable but I see why people enjoy it.) Just wanted to see if anyone had any positive experiences with Paladins in 2018

Is there a Vulkan FPS limiter library like libstranöle?

Sometimes there is high input latency when a game uses Vsync, but without Vsync the GPU heats up a lot (Current example: Rise of the Tomb Raider). For OpenGL games there is libstrangle but that won't work for Vulkan games, obviously :)

Does anyone know a library which can do the same for Vulkan games?

What Linux distro would you recommend for a Windows gamer looking to make the switch?

I'm a huge privacy advocate so windows 10 does not sit well with me, even with massive modifications to remove the built-in OS spyware and with Windows 7 support fully ending soon I was thinking of an alternative.

ZorinOS looked like a nice alternative claiming it can run many Windows Applications and Games.

Linux and OpenGL vs. Windows and DirectX - Same image quality?

Hi,

short question, where I unfortunately could not find an answer: Is the graphic quality of a game, which runs under linux and OpenGL the same or equal to Windows with DirectX?

The reason for this question: Currently I'm playing with a Windows VM and PCIe passthrough of my nvidia GTX 1080. But more and more games support Linux natively so that I can play this games with Linux directly.

Unfortunately I have high demands on the graphics and I heard often than OpenGL has not the same power as DirectX. Is this true? Or is the image result with the same settings identical but only the FPS on another level (regardless of better or worse)?

Has somebody any information or experience with that? Thank you!

PSA: Please take the time to write reviews for Linux games.

The developers really appreciate reviews, especially new releases and indie games that can get lost in the flood of games (on Steam especially). Secondly, by briefly mentioning Linux in your review, you're helping Linux users be confident that the game works fine on Linux. Finally, you're reminding all readers how viable Linux is as a gaming platform, and perhaps inviting them to consider using or developing for Linux, or to do some gaming on a Linux machine in addition to their gaming rig.

Marc Ecko's Getting Up

Get the steam version for widescreen/hires support.

If you don't want to pay for it, buy it on steam and then refund it before you play it.

There's no copy protection/DRM in the steam version.

The irony of this is that if you go to 0x2C1 in the games exe you will see that whoever added wide screen support thought that the cracked scene release would be a perfect starting point before re-selling the game on steam.

Who wants to remove SafeDisc protection when DEViANCE did it for you in 2006!

anyway - if you're reading this you want to play the game right?

set: d3d8 (native, builtin) msvcp71 (native) msvcr71 (native)

works 100% on a fresh 64 bit prefix with wine 3.5.

YMMV if you change anything else.

If you search around you can find a game controller config that maps with xpad, just make sure to also bind the use key/E.

Preferred desktop environment for gaming?

Hello /linux_gaming/,

Was just curious if there was a preferred desktop environment for gaming.

Rise of the Tomb Raider instability?

Has anyone here experienced any instability when running Rise of the Tomb Raider? The game's been crashing constantly for me, to the point where it's nigh on unplayable.

System info:

  • CPU: R7 1700 Stock Speeds
  • RAM: 16GB 2666MHz (Stock)
  • GPU: GTX970 with the recommended 396.18 drivers
  • OS: Arch Linux, KDE, Latest kernel with VFIO patches

Not sure if related, but my performance hasn't been matching what some other people have been posting at all. I'm seeing frequent dips into the mid-40s early game no matter what settings I use. Anyone having a similar experience?

Anyone use any recent AMD GPU's? I'm helping a friend build a PC and I want to suggest an AMD GPU but I'm not real familiar with them in the Linux realm. My last attempt with an AMD GPU (Radeon HD 7770) was awful and I switched to Nvidia. I'm totally ok with suggesting he get a 1060 but I'm really curious how the AMD drivers and support have come along since my 7770.

Trying to get Space Engineers to work with Vulkan.

Hi. I wanted to run Space Engineers on linux (Ubuntu 18.40 x64 to be exact). Since DX11 emulation is lacking in wine I've decided to use DXVK. Here are the steps I took:

*Create a fresh 64bit prefix with wine 3.6 on PlayOnLinux (cant use regular wine because I cant set a x64 prefix even if I write WINEARCH=64bit WINEPREFIX=~/.wine in terminal). *Install dotnet461 and vcrun2017 via winetricks (this game requires them to work so mono is out of the question). *Install DXVK https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/ *Download mscoree.dll and replace all 15KB placeholders in C:/windows. (needed to remove "dll not found" errors) *Download MSVCR120_CLR0400.dll and place it in C:/windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework64/v4.0.30319. (needed to remove "dll not found" errors) *Install vulkansdk via winetricks as shown here: https://github.com/roderickc/wine-vulkan *Add DXVK=devinfo,fps to run parametrs and --force-vulkan to the game's run parameters in Steam.

And here is the error I get:

Distro most optimized for wine gaming?

I tried VFIO gpu passthrough to a windows 7 VM, using Linux Mint as my host, and I had weird issues. SO I'm looking to just stick with games that can be played via Wine and stick to just running Linux and to hell with VFIO.

So I'm trying to decide what distro would be most optimized for gaming with Wine ( or more specifically playonlinux ).

I'm thinking Solus or just Ubuntu. My only complaint with Ubuntu is that the kernel is always pretty far behind, which seems important for gaming?

This is the Police draws the OS mouse cursor and the game's mouse cursor. Is there a fix for this?

It seems to do this all the time if I launch the default version of the game, and in the alternate OpenGL version of the game, I only see the game's cursor. Unfortunately, it launches the game on my left monitor instead of my right monitor, so when I drag the window over to the right monitor, the OS cursor appears again. I tried launching the game with gdevilspie settings to make it launch on the right monitor every time, but that just means that it always gives me the double cursor bug. Is there a fix for this? Or failing that, a way to make the OS cursor invisible via a toggle? It's a minor gripe, I admit, but it's one I'd rather not have at all.

Rise of the Tomb Raider Vega 64 + i7 4770 performance

I just bought Rise of the Tomb Raider (looking forward to actually playing it, no time at the moment!! At least the benchmarks make good wallpaper!) I have Ubuntu 17.10, Padoka, vega 64, i7 4770, 16gb@1600CL9

I'm getting much worse FPS (by about 25% or sometimes worse) than the benchmarks on for example here: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=tomb-raider-20&num=1 including especially much lower minimum rates.

They're using a much newer i7 and DDR4 memory. Does such a big difference in performance sound right between CPUs? Any thoughts?

I've been thinking about making the leap to Ryzen in the future but I didn't think CPU was supposed to make this much difference to gaming. Am feeling somewhat surprised.

I can post some of my actual benchmarks if anyone cares.

Comments:

Hi there. For this benchmark i recorded about 70000 frames, then i picked 5000 random frames to make graphs and statistics. As you can see, performances are slightly different between High and Mid-Low quality graphics with a maximum of 25% more FPS on Mid-Low quality graphics. Some stutters and drops occur when speed is set to 3, otherwise the game runs pretty smooth even in large areas. There is no particular advice i'd give you... If you see the screenshots, graphics are not so different between High and Medium quality, so if you have a low-end system and notice some lag, you can low some graphics and enjoy the game without issues.

Feel free to ask me any questions and please tell me if you like this kind of stuff and if it could be useful for you, thanks.

SIMS 4 DLC disappears?! High Sierra

Hello

I have installed Sims 4 correctly and even played multiple times with the DLC. However when I restart the game the DLC disappears and it seems to load randomly???

I play with Wineskin 2.6.2, engine: WS9Wine2.22 and installed vcrun2010 - 2017.

How can I fix this???!

Indie games from PAX Paris

Hello everyone,

Over the week-end I went to Play by PAX Paris, a PAX-like game expo. In Paris. Duh :)

It's the first year of the expo so it was rather small but there were some interesting indie games on display.

Of course I asked the devs if Linux support was to be expected and to my surprise, a lot of them said yes!

Here's a list of the games I tried and some info. I'm probably not going to explain them very well so please check out the trailers to get a better idea of the gameplay!

All of the games will come to Steam, I'm sorry but I didn't think to ask about GOG.

As you might expect, most of these are made with Unity

Altero

A puzzle-platformer where you need to die in order to advance through the level. I really liked the concept on this one, the art and gameplay both appealed to me, it reminded me both of Limbo and The Talos Principle but with its own very strong identity. Maybe don't play it if you're depressed. The dev told me he was rather surprised at how many people had asked him about a Linux version, he didn't think there would be this much demand. That was nice to hear, good job us!

Coming out in august

Trailer https://youtu.be/lo6D9Zm6WPI

Steam http://store.steampowered.com/app/567590/

Official website http://www.altero-game.com/

Shift quantum

Another puzzle-platformer with a clever twist, I really liked this one. It seems rather straightforward, you just have to get to the exit but you need to swith between two opposite dimensions to do so : you start with dark platforms and a white backgroud, when you switch the background becomes white platforms and the black platforms become the background AND the level flips around 180 degrees, it can be pretty disorientating at first. I'd kind of given up on this game because of the windows-only icon on their Steam page but the studio rep told me it would definitely be on Linux. Half of their devs were on Linux at there was never any doubt in their mind the game would be available for us even though they don't expect much in the way of sales.

They have a level editor, that should be fun!

A rare UE4 game in a sea of Unity.

Release Date Spring

Trailer https://youtu.be/rUIS_10sMWk

Eugenics

"Build your own distopia" : You control the gene pool of a population and build babies that fit your needs and vision. The interface and art style are pretty minimalistic but the gameplay seemed to have a lot of depth to it. The devs told us they had absolutely no problem porting the game with Unity.

Trailer https://youtu.be/R8j-IfPqoKI no gameplay, see the website for screenshots

Official website http://eugenicsgame.com/press/sheet.php?p=eugenics

Orphan age

You take charge of a bunch of orphans struggling to survive in a futuristic, cyberpunk civil war. The developer compared the overall gameplay to the Sims but the look and feel is very far from that : he said he couldn't get a publisher on board because none of them wanted to back a game where children could die...

There is a creation page for your main character, stats and character traits determine how fast and well you can do some things and also influence dialog options. The children can talk among themselves to decide what course of action they want to take. They can become friends or not like each other, some may decide to leave the group if they're not taken care of well enough or stick with you even if it means starving to death.

There will be a Kickstarter for the game soon, backers can receive an interactive, multiple-endings visual novel to dig deeper into the lore.

Understandably development is focused on Windows right now but the dev was really enthusiastic about Linux. He mentionned he might be coming around here to say hi :)

Trailer https://youtu.be/ZM4fHxc5gVs

Official website http://studioblackflag.com/orphan-age/

Main Frames

Another clever platformer. The world is a computer desktop and you're a pixel stick-man jumping from window to window. Some windows can be moved around, some are fixed, some have various, sometimes deadly obstacles. Often the easiest path is not the obvious one.

Trailer https://youtu.be/sAPQrqNQpsA

Dead cells

This one needs no introduction, the Linux version has been upcoming for a while and isn't very far away now.

oQo

Yet another Unity game, still in development, there's a Linux demo!

This one is an abstract, laid-back experience. You're a ...? Thing? And you need to cross the screen by riding sound waves... Just watch the trailer, you'll get it. I enjoyed it.

DEMO https://oqogame.com/demo/

Trailer https://youtu.be/bB4eFuYG3MU

Save me Mr Tako

A retro-style platformer that looks like a Super-Game Boy homebrew. I didn't actually play this one but from what I could see it looked to be rather fun with some clever gameplay tricks. There's also a Linux demo, I haven't tried it yet though.

Demo http://www.indiedb.com/games/tasukete-tako-san-save-me-mr-tako/downloads/tasukete-tako-san-save-me-mr-tako-demo-linux

Paralights

This one is rather early in development, it was at the tech-demo stage. They have a rather good puzzle-platformer concept where some elements of the level appear or disappear depending on the light (red, green or blue). It's a poor explaination, check out the trailer you'll see what I mean. It's pretty good! Once again it's a Unity game so Linux is probable but they are still very early in development, trying to get an editor on board, so not dealing with cross platform at this stage.

Trailer https://youtu.be/iy1tGLIzY2E

Hack tag

A 2 player coop game. It's out for Windows and Mac at the moment, no Linux date yet

Steam thread about Linux: https://steamcommunity.com/app/622770/discussions/5/1697167168516896787/

One player is a stealthy field agent, has to go through the level stealing data from computers while avoiding guards and cameras that can put you in lockup.

The other hacker navigates the nodes of the network, can open locked doors, shut cameras off for a few seconds or distract guards by making phones ring. An anti-virus can catch you and put you in quarantine. If one player gets caught the other can free them. If both are caught it's game over.

Online coop is possible but some minigames require rather intense communication so split screen seems to be the way to go there. There is a single player mode that requires you to switch between both roles but the dev admitted it could be rather stressful!

Trailer https://youtu.be/CufeyuYQnEA

Stay safe

The dev actually chuckled a little bit when I asked about Linux support, they're clearely busy just finishing the game at the moment and cross platform is the last thing on their mind. Again, it's Unity so we'll see.

If you thought Distance was too easy, this is the game for you! The tracks are pretty short, meant to be finished in about 20 seconds each... if you don't crash and burn that is. No checkpoints, you just try again and again until you get it right.

Release Date May 2018

Steam store.steampowered.com/app/818140/

Official website https://www.staysafe.rocks/

Genetic Disasters

Another one where the devs are just busy finishing the game and will worry about cross platform when the bills start getting paid.

It's a 4 player coop twin-stick shooter, you have to fight your way through procedurally generated dungeons. Great art style IMO but not my kind of game tough.

Trailer https://youtu.be/8sBM7WVKIeE

Double Kick Heroes

I actually didn't talk to the dev for this one and I have no idea if they have plans for a Linux port, it's in early access for Windows and Mac at the moment.

It looks like an old school shoot-em-up, you play a hard rock band blasting zombies running after your car... Only looks like though, because it's actually a rhythm game. Really not my cup of tea, gameplay-wise. I really liked the art direction and music though.

Elgato HD60s work with VM?

Hello, I recently switched over from Windows for gaming and want to use my Elgato HD60s to get a video feed from console, but as most of you know, there isn't any support from Elgato for Linux. I've looked into the third party drivers, but there is still only support for the Elgato HD. I've been trying to get it to work with a windows VM and a usb redirect (tried KVM and Virtualbox), but no luck just yet. I get the drivers installed and the most I get is a blank feed and on Virtualbox i get a "1fps" icon when using the capture program.

Has anyone had any luck with a VM or have any suggestions to try?

What's the status of VR on Linux right now?

I didn't find anything too recent with Google, but some of the less old stuff didn't seem too promising, and even stuff related to gaming in general looked a bit worring.

I haven't been following the Linux scene for a while; but I'm about to buy a laptop and hoped to avoid Win10 and take the opportunity to finally make the jump to Linux. While I wasn't expecting perfect performance on max settings and perfect stability, I had assumed things would've gotten a lot better since I last looked into switching to Linux many years ago; but some of the more recent stuff I read online didn't seem too promising

Does VR work in general? Can I work on VR stuff in Unreal Engine on Linux? Are there ways to have non-VR games working in VR with adequate performance, either full immersion or even just simply a virtual 3D screen (not a flat floating rectangle with a picture, but a "window" into the game's world, with paralax and stuff)?

And regarding games in general, is it possible to get good performance (at least with high end hardware)? What's the situation regarding compatibility with Wine? What about the selection of native games?

And about controls, is there something equivalent to GlovePIE/FreePIE on Linux, something that will let me use whatever input device I want (Wiimote, Dualshock3, Razer Hydra, Vive controllers, MIDI instruments etc) with programmable remapping (not just 1:1, but doing calculations, conditionals, loops etc) into virtual joysticks, mouses, keyboard etc, even on games that weren't meant to be played with those devices (emulating those conventional input devices, so games think a real hardware of that type is being used), using an easy but powerful scripting language?

I'll be getting a high end laptop, should I be worried about drivers and such?

Oh, and on a slightly more niche topic, does disk encryption make much difference in the performance of games and such? Since this will be a laptop and not gonna just be sitting in my own room, I was hoping to have everything encrypted to be a little safer.

Ah, and one final question for the moment: does it matter much what distro I'll use? I was thinking about going with Mint, to have something suitable for general usage, cause I remember people were saying good things about it some time ago; but should I go for something else, keeping in mind I won't be just gaming with this machine?

DXVK + GTA V + nVidia 960 GTX = Can't get it up

OMFG I'm pulling my hair out. I've gone through so many guides to try to get GTA V to run via DXVK. All the youtube videos make it look so easy, yet I can't for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong.

So, let me see if I forgot anything...

  1. The WINEPREFIX needs to have Vulkan SDK installed (done)
  2. I have the latest (as of this writing) DXVK DLLs in the wow64 and system32 folders (supposedly 32bit goes in wow64, and 64bit goes in system32? I don't even know what to believe any more)
  3. I have the 64bit and 32bit vulkan packages installed in my environment, and vulkaninfo sees my GPU and says a whole lot of things my GPU can do (had to use less to read it).
  4. I have tried setting the ENV variable DXVK_FEATURE_LEVEL=10_1 (as per : https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/88 ), as well as unsetting it.
  5. I am using Lutris to do all this btw (including the wine builds served through lutris).
  6. I've tried 3.5-staging, 3.4-staging, 3.3-vulkan
  7. I had to set it to Win XP to get past the Rockstar Social loading circle of death.
  8. I tried the SRV shader stuff, and uhh, that didn't go anywhere. Plus I saw some notes saying that's debug only stuff, and really shouldn't be enabled anyways. So... I dunno!
  9. I've made sure I'm on nVidia blob 390.xx
  10. I'm on Ubuntu 17.10 + XFCE4 + Compiz (sue me)
  11. My prefix is running in a WINE virtual desktop (1280x720 for ezmode)

So what happens? Well, the Rockstar Social picks up my profile (yay!), then launches the game. Then after some hard drive activity gta5.exe crashes, yay!

I've scoured the internet so hard today, I am at a loss as to what I'm doing wrong. I really don't want to have to compile anything, as that is a pig to maintain (updates).

Any tips?

Star Trek Online

Hey guys,

A little while ago I had this game running perfectly. I'm running arch, graphics card is a Vega 56 /w latest stable mesa. But lately I've been having an issue where any mouse input is really laggy, the FPS actually seems to be very good put say, panning around with the mouse is delayed by a good entire second.

I've tried with and without DXVK (dxvk didn't run at all) and with and without CSMT on wine-staging 3.6. Setting fullscreen, windows or windows fullscreen in game don't make a difference, and changing the actual graphics settings in-game doesn't make a difference either. I've tried emulating a desktop, nothing makes any difference.

I don't have a lot of windows games but I don't think any other wine games have this issue. Anyone have any ideas about how to get this going correctly?

back again with controller issues

Guess I'll start posting stuff every other day now =:

I recently switched from using my steamlink exclusively for gaming with a controller to having my computer plugged directly into the tv.

Now that I am going straight from the computer to the display (tv), I am having issues with the controller (both the steam controller as well as a ps4 controller) -- whereas before it all worked just fine.

The problem is for SOME of the games, not all of them. For both controllers, albeit in different manners, the inputs are not being correctly recognized. For example in Broforce, the "start" button is recognized as the "b" button on the steam controller, whereas moving up on the ps4 controller will make it go down.

I am on manjaro linux using nvidia prop drivers. Things I have tried:

  1. changing kernels. was on 4.14 lts. installed 4.16 but no change.

  2. removing all other peripherals.

  3. adding and removing support for the various 3rd party controllers in the steam settings.

  4. using a community controller setup.

  5. probably other things that I am forgetting.

I am at wits end at this point. Anyone have any solutions for me? Thanks in advance!

Help! Cannot increase mouse polling rate.

So I'm quite new to linux in general, and for the past few days I've been trying to configure polling rate of my generic usb mouse.

I did everything:

  • Apending "-r usbhid" and "usbhid mousepoll=2" to /etc/modules
  • Adding "options usbhid mousepoll=4" into /etc/modprobe.d/usbhid.conf
  • Adding usbhid.mousepoll=2 to kernel command line

But none of the above works. evhz still reports my mouse polling rate being 125Hz.

Any help will be appreciated. I will provide more info if needed.

Skyrim Legendary Edition : two problems with it

Hi. I'm using Wine Staging 3.6 and have two problems with Skyrim.

First ; NPC voices etc are missing. I tried to do winetricks xact , terminal said it's already installed. But nothing has changed.

Second: Since normal quitting from game ( Esc- quit to desktop ) hangs the system i'm doing Alt+F4. But when i do this and ran Skyrim again on same login , mouse starts to act offset. I set virtual desktop for it and opened mouse catching on fullscreen but it is still the same.

Third but also not so important : Skyrim Script Extender is not working. I need it to use SkyUI mod.

I hope we can sort these out.

I don't like using Lutris or PoL so these are out of options.

Bluestacks .exe file won't run for unknown reasons. Any help?

I'm running High Sierra, and downloaded wine using a .pkg file. When I try to open Bluestacks, it loads for a second, then a window opens and immediately closes in the top left corner. There is some text in said window, but it flashes on and off the screen so quickly it is impossible to read. Then the program closes. Any ideas as to what's wrong?

Freesync multi-monitor support with amdgpu?

Looking at the AMDGPU-PRO drivers I just realized that you can't enable Freesync if there's more than one monitor connected which is a huge downside. When Freesync gets implemented in amdgpu will it have the same limitation? If it will is there any chance that'll it work with multihead setups in the future or is that just an inherent limitation of multihead support on Xorg? What about Wayland? I'm going to have to strongly reconsider getting a Freesync monitor if multihead won't work at all.

Has anyone gotten El Dewrito 0.6/Halo Online to run in newer versions of wine?

I checked in winehq's appdb and it looks like the most recent test is marked as old and tested on 2.21-staging. A new version was released yesterday and I was curious if anyone had gotten any progress with it in a newer version of Wine.

I tried installing it and giving it a go last night but was only able to get the game to launch to a black screen, which then exits before any content loads. Once I was able to get the mouse cursor to appear after installing the DXVK DLLs but still it loaded to a black screen and then exited. I don't really know what I'm doing when it comes to reading the debug output in PlayOnLinux.

I remember reading about this, but I cannot, for the life of me, find the correct snap command to install it. I am not talking about the bleeding edge, dev stuff, just the release. I went to the Github page but only found tar files and no snap commands. Is this not out yet?

Hats off to you Feral!

Sorry for the noise, but I wanted to say thank you so much to Feral for the RotTR port! It took a tiny bit of work to get it running (upgrading Mesa, optionally installing the Gamemode thingy) but WOW it runs amazing! I was a little worried that my machine wouldn't cut it, but it's running silky smooth at high settings for me, and I am so impressed! Thank you so much for all your hard work on this!

Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition bizarre issue

Okay, I have no clue how to start googling this one. I bought bgee & bg2ee on gog today. Installed bgee, had fun time figuring out how to get it work with the libs ive got installed and then launched and technically it launched. My issue is that the first menu is in miniscule resolution and about none of the buttons work. When I click quit it takes me to bg main menu but the menu shows only half of the screen, formatted to the right side of my monitor. I cannot click any of the buttons (of the two that is visible, namely new game and options). At this point, I cannot do anything. I cannot use the menu to quit bgee and I cannot alt tab out of it or anything with only thing left for me is to hard reset my computer.

I have no idea how I would start to google this issue. I cannot give any terminal output nor screenshots about the issue since after launching I cannot access anything on my computer anymore. Its stuck in the menu and I have to hard reset.

So, yeah. This is certainly a thing. Fun times.

Cannot get Vulkan to work under wine since version 3.3 What else can I do?

I have been trying unsuccessfully to get Vulkan to work in wine since I updated to wine 3.3 from version 2.21. I am currently using wine 3.6 and I couldn't get it working for any of the version in between either.

I am running Arch and have a fully updated system. I have an NVIDIA 1060 and can run Vulkan games just fine natively, so I know all the drivers and everything are installed and working just fine on the linux end.

I think it is some kind of driver issue on the wine side. I say this because when I try to run DOOM 2016 with vulkan the doom console comes up with an error saying it can't find the appropriate drivers. I have tried setting up DXVK and when I activate the two .dll files needed in the winecfg I can no longer launch the blizzard app, it says I am missing a dll and to reinstall the launcher, which I tried but got the same erro, I can run steam just fine however.

I have tried getting it working by installing the vulkan patched versions of wine from the AUR, no go. I have reinstalled my video drivers, I have run the overwatch installer from lutris, which I am not sure worked since I have never used Lutris before.

Any suggestions you guys have would be great! Thanks for your help.

I'm also using Nvidia drivers, which apparently might be the cause for this? That or libcrypto? Please help.

What is optimal wine staging version/setup to run Overwatch?

Hi,

As per subject I'm now playing Overwatch on Linux only (Ubuntu 16.04 with HWE) and I've been using wine staging 2.4 for sometime.

The game was choppy (I know, OpenGL compiling shaders and runtime and whatnot), but since staging 3.6 came to the Ubuntu wine staging PPA, the game seems even choppier, with definitely less FPS than before.

I have CSMT enabled.

What do you suggest to get optimal performance?

Thanks!

No stuttering at all unlike most linux games i've tried on my desktop even with a Ryzen 7 1700 and a GTX 1070. I've got to say that i'm impressed. This was my first good linux gaming experience. If only more titles ran properly on linux.

UPDATE: to the controller &amp; black screen issues with Rise of the Tomb Raider

Many of you know that instead of actually playing the game, I have been spending my free time the last 24 hours or so trying to debug my issues. I had 2 issues:

  1. I had a black screen with a cursor when BPM was enabled. I could only run it in regular steam mode.
  2. Neither the steam controller nor my ps4 controller would actually work.

It took me a while to figure out that these were 2 different issues. Anyway, the solution for the first problem came from Feral support:

  • Open the Steam Client.
  • Click Settings in the top menu bar.
  • In the dropdown that appears, click Preferences.
  • In the new window that opens, select Controller in the left list, then click 'General Controller Settings'
  • Another window will open. Ensure that PS4 and Xbox Configuration Support are not checked

I did this, and suddenly both controllers worked in game. The solution to the black screen issue came from falmear (thank you):

"In BPM it seems that if you disable the Steam Overlay, then the game will load and not show a black screen. However the controller still doesn't work."

I had to google how to disable the steam overlay. From the menu, it is Steam>Settings>In-Game: uncheck the box that says "enable the steam overlay while in-game".

A couple of notes: I did not have the issue that falmear had with the controller. The controller worked for me. I am guessing it has to do with the solution the first problem (see above). Also, disabling the steam overlay obviously means that you cannot change controller configurations while the game is running. Not ideal, but I will take it.

Once I did these two things, I ran some basic tests. Everything worked like gravy when running directly from my computer. Both the steam controller and the ps4 controller worked, and no black screen (yay!). I then tested it out on my steamlink, and there was a black screen on the tv (boo!). So, the steamlink still does not work. Add that to the growing list of games and I think I'm going to start using my steamlink as a coaster and hook my computer directly to the tv. Let me know of course if anyone has a solution to the remaining problem with the steamlink.

Anyway, sorry for the wall of text. I thought it might be helpful for people.

Borderlands 2 crashes any time it tries to play a pre-rendered video.

Xubuntu 17.10

After doing some debugging, it appears to be related to GLIBC somehow.

Using the -nostartupvideos launch parameter gets me ingame, but the game will crash if I go to any area that triggers a pre-rendered video.

Tried asking around in the Steam boards (Huge mistake!), and I got useless advice like disabling all videos or giving up and installing Windows, neither of which are acceptable "solutions."

Further data available upon request.

Rise of the Tomb Raider: Steam OS and Solus

Just gave it a shot on my ancient Steam Machine (Alienware Alpha, 860M, i3, 8GB, 387 driver). On medium settings the benchmark shows average fps in the 40s but a high range (roughly 18-70). Presumably if we ever see an update to the 397 driver this will improve. Lots of pop in, but definitely playable.

On Solus it doesn't launch at all on the 391 driver. There's no way to install the beta driver on Solus without possibly breaking the system, so I'm SOOL for now.

black screen with Rise of the Tomb Raider

I originally thought that the black screen was due to my steamlink. But, apparently it goes black if I try to launch it in BPM. The game runs just fine if I play it in regular steam. But, because I cannot use BPM, that means that I also cannot use a controller.

I would like to use a controller. Do others have this problem, and has anyone found a solution?

I have emailed Feral support, so I'll update if they give me something useful that isn't "update your nvidia driver".

How to add PlayOnLinux games to steam library

Hey guys, I would like to add a game I have installed via PlayOnLinux to my steam library so I can run it directly. The command to run it would be

but using that as the target doesn't seem to work. Any ideas? For now I can just open playonlinux and then select the game, but that means I have to maintain multiple controller configs. Thanks!

Did Nvidia ever fix bug 1963500?

The title pretty much sums it up, I just updated my Nvidia driver from 375.39 to 390.48 and I've noticed a massive loss in performance in titles that utilize my GPU a lot (as in Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, The Witcher 2, etc). Nvidia claimed they would release a workaround in the 390 driver but I've yet to find any mention of it since the driver was pre-beta. More info on the bug is here, Thanks.

Replacing an FX-9590 with Ryzen 1300X

Outside of basic stuff all I do is game. It is the only heavy task I do with my PC. I have noticed for a while that not many Linux games use more than 4 cores and some use even less. This means that my FX-9590, which was holding it's own on Windows, doesn't do well on Linux. I am hoping to be able to go Ryzen soon but I doubt I will be able to afford a Ryzen 1600X that I want and will most likely have to settle for a Ryzen 1300X. It's tough to find benchmarks comparing the two on Linux. Any thoughts as to whether the 1300X would be a worthy upgrade for my FX-9590 ? On Windows benchmarks the 1300X doesn't really beat the FX-9590 in many games but those are also testing games that aren't on Linux so they don't really matter. I also know that new Ryzen chips are coming out but they are the 2600X and 2700X not really in the same price range as the 1300X.

gldriverquery.exe error with Steam on Wine Staging 3.5

Has anyone gotten (or defeated) this error message installing Steam with Wine Staging 3.5? My Steam install randomly crashes a minute or two after lauching and getting that error message. I've installed C++ 2015 (which fixed this for some people) without any change. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks!

HELP: Connecting a Pro Switch Controller via USB

So I have found several posts/articles/videos on the internet regarding how to use a Switch Pro USB Controller on a laptop running Linux Mint (dual boot with Windows). I am wanting to use this controller in Retroarch. I have found where the driver is located:

https://github.com/shinyquagsire23/HID-Joy-Con-Whispering/

Can anyone walk me through exactly how to make this happen? I have tried cloning this to my desktop, but then the folder just sits there and nothing happens. Do I need to do something further? I also read that I need to compile the “uinputdriver”, but it appears as if there is already a “Makefile” in the folder. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am new to Linux, but just to make it clear, I have spent HOURS trying to make this work on my own. Time to throw in the towel LOL. Thanks in advance.

Headphone spartial sound

Hello.

I have a feature on my sound card called "Dolby Headphone" - it could take any 2 channel sound output and virtually simulate it passing through a room, so it feels like the sound is coming from speakers in front of you, instead of the traditional headphone feel where the sound is coming from the sides. Unfortunately, the Linux driver doesn't support that.

I'm very used to that feature. I find it difficult to listen to headphones without the 3D sound feeling it tends to create. Is there a way to recreate it under Linux ? I'm even willing to buy additional sound equipment, like a receiver, if it could do that.

The traditional Linux philosophy is "if it doesn't exist, I'll do it myself", so I had some success by passing the entire system sound output to some ladspa filters (reverb + bass boost) , but it's not working that well since I'm not entirely sure which filters to use and with which settings, and it's very easy to mess up the sound.

Could you help me with that ?

Is there any FPS limiter that works with wine?

Question is in title. I'm trying to play old game that doesn't have vsync, or fps limiter, and it's logic is tied to fps. I end up with superfast gameplay.

Also, the game is free, if any wine gurus want to try to get it working.

I wrote a USB driver for the Nintendo Switch ProController for linux

Tadaa, here is my uinput driver for the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Go to this repository and follow the instructions listed there: https://github.com/FrotBot/SwitchProConLinuxUSB The controller is USB only and can support only one controller at the moment. Feel free to give me the heat about bad coding, how it's not a kernel driver and everything else in the comment section! :-) When runnning, the ProCon will be interpreted as a native XBox360 controller, which is what most games seem to like these days.

No Man's Sky - Wine-staging 3.6 - Arch Linux - Current state?

I am attempting to get No Man's Sky GOG working with Arch Linux, wine-staging 3.6-1. My GPU is AMD Raedon RX 550, CPU Ryzen 5 1600.

I was able to install using a 64bit prefix. The game launches, menus work, but the graphics are totally broken. I get to a white screen with menu overlay, but when (seemingly) the game is supposed to start (display something!), nothing happens. I can go into a menu of settings, but returning produces blinking of the menu and ghosting of previous start menus.

Any thoughts? I haven't found anything online recently.

Getting Fallout NV to play with PlayonLinux

Lately I've been wanting to play some NV on my Chromebook (Celeron N3060/Intel HD 400 which should play decently), so I've dual booted Ubuntu 16.04 through Crouton. With PlayonLinux, I got Steam up and running but when I got New Vegas installed it simply crashes before anything starts at all. Does anyone know if this game needs to be installed specially or should the steam client install through PlayonLinux be enough? Thanks in advance

edit: I should mention that I installed the game onto a flash drive

Mingine a new open source game engine

I am new to open source development but have been a long time GNU/Linux lover. So when I heard my teacher was making a open source game engine I volunteered to help make it cross platform. Right now it is working on the big three platforms but I need to add installation documentation. We would love it if some people would test it out and tell me what you think.

Flat sound with wwise middleware. why?

https://www.audiokinetic.com/products/wwise/ i noticed a big difference in sound deepness between wwise-powered games (example: codemasters titles, mekazoo) and titles like deus ex:mankind divided and tomb raider, and i can't figure why. wwise games seems to be too flat, positional audio is weak and environmental occlusion is just a bit even when you can maximize this setting. on contrast, titles like deus ex:md and tomb raider have stunning audio with the same hardware, so the problem are neither my headphones nor the audio chip. is there any kind of setting i can manipulate to achieve a better audio performance?

Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom works fine but doesn't save properly [3.6 Staging, DXVK 0.42, GTX 760, 396.18-1 Beta]

The game works mostly fine but the one thing really preventing me from playing anymore is that it either creates a corrupted save file or doesn't create one at all.

I'm trying to get my hands on a proper save file from the beginning of the game to see if I can load it initially, save to it, then continue from it. If anyone can provide one I'd be grateful since I don't have anything running Windows to do it myself.

Otherwise there are some minor problems:

When starting the client sometimes the all sound starts glitching which I can solve for the rest of the game session by switching to another window and back.

Occasional small scale texture glitching, nothing overly annoying.

Cannot switch to Fullscreen mode from Windowed.

The importance of MESA support ?

I'm still learning Linux, but sometime it's tough. I heard about MESA a lot, I read that it was some kind of API like Vulkan and DX. But also learned that it wasn't OpenGL. What was wrong about OpenGL (or Vulkan now) that pushed someone to create MESA and people to root for it ? It is just the fact that its alternative (OpenGL, Vulkan) are not open-source ?

It's really confusing to learn about API for a linux newbie like me, but I'm trying hard.

Need help with Hearthstone and League of Legends.

Hey guys, really novice at gaming on linux here. So I've recently transitioned to Linux, tho I still keep dualboot for some games.
My intention is to just use Windows for some apps I really need and for some demanding games, so I would like to be able to play not so demanding games through wine.
So I''ve tried to install League of legends through some ways.
First I tried Playonlinux, installed it without tweaking any settings and it would crash before the launcher even appeared, so after some googling I installed it using wine staging 2.21, and it would work but the screen wouldn't go fullscreen, it would act as a normal window, not a game one (I tried some solutions result of my googling but neither of them would work), and also sound wouldn't work.
So after that I tried Lutris, and it worked waaaay better, it would work perfectly, audio, fullscreen... you name it, but it would crash if I try to minimize the game, and the resolution is a bit screwed :/.
My other try, Hearthstone, I just tried it in Lutris, installed all the dependencies and followed the official guide in Lutris Hearthstone page to install it, but when I launch it, the battle.net login screen will appear, but where the login button should be displayed, just appears a loading animation that never ends, so I'm unable to log in.

EDIT: Do you guys also know if there's a way to play my unsupported Steam games through wine?

Thank you for any help and forgive my awful English ^

Angels Fall First (Wine 3.5 staging)

Just an update on this DX9 title (no dxvk needed). With Wine 3.5 staging and anti aliasing turned off in game (otherwise there are visual artifacts), I can launch the 64 bit version of this game and play smoothly in 1440p. The most recent game edition (18?) has (finally) some performance optimization and the game runs, looks, and plays gloriously, both solo and online. 45 players (human + bots) battle it out on the ground, skies, and space. It's wonderful.

[dxvk] Eve: Valkyrie Warlords and House of the Dying Sun work!

I'm a space sim/combat fan and never thought I'd see these DX11 titles working so fast on Wine. With Wine 3.5 staging and dxvk installed (although my Steam is crashing frequently with it) both of these titles work perfectly so far and look great. Eve: VW worked best forcing a windowed launch option and forcing the resolution, both by launch string in Steam preferences for the game, but it's perfect from there.

I'm terrified to try Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen, because then I'd never go to work...

ds4drv configurations

What are you configurations with ds4drv that lets you use the PS4 controller on Linux?

Mine is just subliminal basic things, nothing fancy, no advanced configurations. But some configurations work, while others don't. The only issue I have is not being able to turn off that trackpad on the controller. I can try manually disable it through xinput but then the rest of the controller doesn't function for say emulators, but I can still press the PS Button and change configured profiles. The other thing I have problem with too is that when ds4drv daemon is running, it'll create an input for it but the controller will also add 2 additional inputs so I end up with something like this;

/dev/input/js0
/dev/input/js1
/dev/input/js2

3 separate inputs like if they're 3 controllers, but they're infact 3 inputs for one controller. Main one /dev/input/js0 ran by ds4drv-daemon, /dev/input/js1 is Motion Sensors from the controller with no button inputs, and finally /dev/input/js2 which is basically the controller again, but without the Motion Sensors, but will instead be labeled Microsoft X-Box 360 pad in jstest-gtk or any other application that detects a controller input.

I have in my config to specifically disable the trackpad-mouse option to false, and set the controller to run in emulate-xpad there's also sometimes a bit of an input delay with the controller with some games.

Hi I'm trying to setup DXVK on a GTX 760 Dual, I am on an unsupported driver 375.39 and was wondering if a driver update is needed or if it's the actual graphics card since I've heard that the Kepler series of cards doesn't expose D3D_FEATURE_LEVEL_11_0, anyways if anyone has a kepler card I'd be interested to see if a driver update fixes this.

Wine vs wine-staging vs wine-vulkan vs DXVK - Checking in to see if I understood the differences correctly

Hello fellow Linux users.

I'm not a huge gamer, but ever since I fully switched to Linux only (no dual-boot) I put wine & co on my "to research" list as I'd still like to play Doom 2016 every now and then.

So I did some research and this is what I found out:

Wine: Translates DX11 to OpenGL

Wine-Staging: Translates DX11 to OpenGL, basically Wine with a few extra optimisations

Wine-Vulkan: Translates DX11 to Vulkan

DXVK: Vulkan addon for wine (?)

However I still have a few questions that I'm not 100% sure about:

  1. What's the difference between DXVK and Wine-Vulkan?

  2. Does Wine-Vulkan/DXVK translate OpenGL to Vulkan or also Vulkan to Vulkan? From what I researched it seems at least Wine-Vulkan can do both. Is that true? Can both do it?

  3. I would like to play Doom 2016 in Vulkan - Should I be looking at DXVK or Wine-Vulkan? I would say the latter, but I'm not really that sure, because I don't know what the exact differences between DXVK and Wine-Vulkan are.

Thanks a lot in advance, I hope this is of interest to others as well!

I've got a 32bit wine prefix and I've installed DirectX9 via winetricks. If I look in winecfg you can see a bunch of dx9_~ installed.

There are no messages in console at all.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun - bug getting past mission 1.

Got this a while back, played about 10 minutes worth just to check it worked. All seemed good so last week I had a proper go. Really enjoyed getting through mission 1 but can't progress. For the start of the next mission I get a completely green screen while a voice over plays out then stuck on that screen forever. Hitting ESC to go to menu exits to desktop. Some googling came up with various 'stuck at blank screen' issues (both Windows & Linux) where a suggested fix was to delete a game state file. These were all a couple of years old and there doesn't appear to be any such file on my system - I recall coming across a dev post saying they were going to remove it. Any one come across this issue recently and got suggestions as to how to progress? System is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a generic desktop: Intel i7 CPU and GTX 1070 GPU. Other Unity games that support Linux have worked fine to date.

Another @Mostly_Linux Giveaway! Tesla vs. Lovecraft is native and awesome!

We've partnered up with 10tons Ltd. to offer five copies of Tesla vs. Lovecraft to members of the Linux and @Mostly_Linux community!

We're giving away two copies here on this subreddit and two copies away to our followers on [Twitter](www.twitter.com/Mostly_Linux) and to listeners of our still very much in beta #Mostly_Gaming podcast.

We're working with developers and publishers to promote their games to Linux gamers and Mostly_Linux gamers and looking to expand the base of Linux gaming.

Here's how to enter:

We want the games to go to Linux gamers - so post a screenshot of your Linux desktop with the hashtag #WeLove10TonsLTD somewhere on the screen. It can be a camera shot of your monitor, a screen capture or anything else. It must be Linux (and please specify your distro!) and it must say #WeLove10tonsLTD.

We'll pick two winners this Friday from the entries here on the sub. Note that we're going to post the screenshots of your desktop on Twitter so don't post anything private!

Thanks for participating and good luck!

Hey, we updated our small game jam game and added Linux support!

Hey, like the title says, our small game jam game has now a Linux build. We tested it on the 64-bit versions of Ubuntu 16.4. and Solus. There's a x86 build included just in case someone has an old system and wants to play it :D (but we didn't test the x86 version). It's a short decision based narrative game, free and should only take you about 5-15 minutes to complete :)

https://smokesomefrogs.itch.io/news-or-truths

It was made during the #fakejam in Berlin and we updated it afterwards to clean up some rough edges and add the aforementioned Linux build.

Nascent DXVK Compatibility List

People keep asking for one these so I slapped something together really quick. Please feel free to submit anything you can find, including D3D11 titles that are known not to work with DXVK. I'll be backing the list up regularly in case someone messes it up, intentionally or not, but this is only a temporary home. Hopefully this data can be added to the GamingonLinux Wiki or another more appropriate location soon. u/liamdawe Would you be interested?

Far Cry 5 in-game benchmark (low settings). Wine 3.5 and dxvk 0.42

Currently using an Nvidia 680 as my R9 Fury is borked and I'm waiting for RMA.

Currently there are a lot of bugs graphically and even though it might be my GPU, I'm also pretty sure that wine requires some fixes for this game. I had to put everything on low and resolution scaling on 0.5 as to not go over my VRAM of 2gb.

Wine was not modified in any way (except for dxvk)

I only made this post so people can see that it's possible and can test for themselves.

New stable release of PySolFC — an open-source collection of over 1,000 card Solitaire/Mahjong games

PySolFC is a free and open-source collection of over 1,000 card Solitaire and Mahjong games with many features and solver/analysis tools. It is almost 20 years old, and the current development efforts are concentrated on the GitHub repository.

The PySolFC developers are happy to announce a new stable release, 2.2.0, of PySolFC (the last one was in distant 2009!). Among the new features are:

  • Compatibility with both Python 3.x and Python 2.7.
  • Support for the Kivy user-interface toolkit, for Android devices and other systems.
  • A Microsoft Windows binary installer.
  • Support for dealing all Freecell Pro deals by specifying "ms100000", or similar, as the seed.
  • Support for the Black Hole and All in a Row solver was added.
  • Test suite and CI have been added to the repository.
  • The code now passes flake8 validation.

You can find download links for current Windows, source code, and Android versions. Packages for Linux/BSD/etc. distributions and operating systems should be made available soon from the downstream packagers.

Future plans:

  • Vector-based fully scalable cards and graphics
  • Large-scale cardsets for HD displays
  • An online, WWW-based version

If you want to help, we need:

  • Programmers
  • Graphic designers who would help with improving the app’s look
  • People to help with documentation and translations
  • People who would spread the word
  • Testers / QA people
  • Monetary donations - see this page

We will gladly answer any questions!

Remember that apart from this thread you can also contact us using the FOSS Card Games group, and using the ##pysol chat room on Freenode (note the double octothorpe/hash-sign/pound-sign).

A final note is that while we are using GitHub for version control, and accept pull requests and issue reports, we are still hosting the main site and the downloads on SourceForge.net. See the explanation for details.

What video card for Wine gaming?

In the last, AMD was a great contender if Wine gaming was a major portion of your Linux gaming. Especially with Gallium, the performance bump was noteable and often times major.

With the latest shift in rapid development of dxvk and the later Wine staging versions, which manufacturer is the best route for Wine gaming? Does AMD have a noteable lead in regards to dxvk as well as Gallium? Or do Nvidias closed source drivers still have the edge?

I'm considering a horizontal switch from a GTX 780 to a R9 290X. A buddy has an old one that I could use and I want to buy an AMD card in the future anyway, but likely am waiting for the next generation of CPUs for a full PC upgrade. It seems a lot of great things are coming from AMD, particularly a full FOSS stack once they transition AMDGPU-PRO.

Anyway, if anyone has some benchmarks or experience with how these compare in performance as of late, that would be awesome. The latest improvements are really exciting and I'm hoping to dive into dxvk in particular really soon

Linux user buying a mainstream AAA Win-only game (DXVK), why developers should still adopt again?

Nothing much to add, lot of people if flooding to Linux because their are upset with Microsoft policy.

Most of this people don't actually want an open platform, but a "Windows, just not quite Windows". For this people is natural to focus 100% on DXVK which is exactly what they are after "Windows, just not quite Windows".

If we're talking about a developer deploying Linux packages, new indie release of games with day1 linux support or game going in early access with Linux native binaries, Feral announcing a new linux port for a AAA game... and then you come here posting random DXVK video of mainstream games whose developer absolutely ignore Linux. You're damaging the function of this subreddit to bring into sight what's going on with linux gaming adoption among the industry (DXVK is a cool project, but definitely is not Linux adoption/awareness among publisher/developer).

If you tell someone "look, I am already playing your game here".. what's your expection, what do you think it will happen? The publisher running towards you yelling something like "noooo; don't do it! have my native port instead! here!"!?

Can't get Starcraft II or any Battle.net Title to work

Last night I installed Starcraft II and Hearthstone through Lutris without a problem (my system runs Fedora 27 with an AMD HD7850 running with radeon open source drivers). This morning, I tried to launch them and right after logging in Battle.net the screen went black with an error window (check pic). I googled that error message and saw a bunch of things ranging from installing mscorefonts, installing some packages in order to avoid a dependency hell in wine, both of which I already did prior to installing, but I reinstalled them just in case; and renaming Battle.net Helper.exe to something else (in that case the login window won't even let me show the buttons to log in). The error says it is related to not meeting the minimum specs or having outdated or corrupted drivers. I think I meet the requirements and my system is updated.

Error code: https://i.redd.it/kj32ifuoe8s01.png

I don't know what to do, any help is appreciated

Lutris Highlights

I recently setup Lutris and am really loving it. So far the Windows games I've tried in Wine are StarCraft II, League of Legends, and Skyrim all with great success. I think I need to do some minor tweaking, but I also hope to get Fallout 4, Homeworld Remastered, and The Sims 3 working as well.

I want to try more games! This will completely replace my need for a Windows dual boot, and I'm immensely excited! I have yet to try out DXVK, but it looks very tempting!

I want to know what other great games run surprisingly well in Lutris. Respond with your favorites! Bonus points for more recent games.

DXVK with nvidia-optimus setup

Hi folks,

Someone managed to get the DXVK working with a nvidia-optimus setup? I have a Dell 7567 with a discrete GTX 1050ti. As bumblebee doesn't work with Vulkan, I have two separate environments (normal X and nvidia-xrun), with the first I can run intel-vulkan applications and with the last I can run nvidia-vulkan applications normally but when it comes to the DXVK, it works with the Intel IGP but with nvidia I get the following errors:

err: DxvkSurface::createSurface: Surface not supported by device err: DxgiSwapChain: Failed to create presenter or back buffer

And then, the application crashes.

So I beg your wisdom for help!!

Question about wine gaming - Do they run better or worse? (MAC)

In the past, I had a copy of Windows so running Windows with Bootcamp was quite good. I was able to run most games with my Late-2013 Mac.

Recently, that option no longer exists, and I am stuck with using Wine to run Windows games. I am using a software called Crossover which uses Wine to run Windows applications.

Will running games on Steam (with Wine) run better or worse than using Steam for Mac and only running Mac games? Also, let's say I have a game that is less demanding in requrirements but DOES NOT SUPPORT MAC and a game that is more demanding but supports Mac. Will running the game (w/o Mac support) on Wine have a better performance than running the game (W/ mac support) despite the system requirement differences?

With the new NVIDIA beta drivers (which offer improvements to Vulkan calls), finally Dark Souls III works for my system. The FPS is choppy - around 20-25ish, but no crash on load, no crash after the character creation screen, it seems like you can play through the whole game now.

The sad state of VR on Linux :/

This article was posted in Feb 2017, https://www.engadget.com/2017/02/22/valve-launches-steamvr-support-for-linux/ and its April 2018 but VR still doesn't work for the most part out of the box on Linux, Why is it that the Linux community is always lacking in terms on new technology adoption. Linux also seems to be not supported by any of the VR headset companies officially how come none of the Linux giants like Redhat (Gnome), OpenSuse, KDE haven't yet reached out to any of these VR developer companies for official support. Most of the community is fighting over desktop space but hey wake up the year of the desktop is dead and gone its time to move over to the next technologies like VR and voice and motion control and fancier stuff. Most of the blame game seems to be put on GPU manufacturer shoulders around here like shooting Nvidia down but in reality it seems the developers here just don't have any interest in even trying to support newer stuff.

Developers sure seem interested in bumping desktop versions 3.26 to 3.28 or 4 to 5 year by year but its become like one year you colour the icon red and call it a new release and the next year its blue and you call it a new release there is hardly any innovation left in this space. Wouldn't you rather put your money on a Linux companies, desktop environment that plans to support VR and adopt future technologies.

Getting Okami HD to run?

Hello, I've tried to install Okami HD without any luck. I've tried with Wineskin WS9Wine 2.22. I was able to install it but when I try to open it nothing happens. Would anyone be able to help figure this out? Excuse my lack of knowledge, but with a little bit of help to just point me in the right direction will be enough. Thanks

RafiLinux
Trying to remember two old linux games.

Back in the late 90's too early Y2K, I picked up my first physical copy of a Linux game from a local gaming store. It was on sale for $2.99. It was a hidden spot game centered around mystical kung fu. I picked it up because on the box it said it openly supported Linux and all of it's variations and it was the first time I saw a game do that on a commercial box inside of a store. When you found the hidden spots, it would open up a cut scene from a mock-ish kung fu film that did not exist. It had 2 main characters and 1 villain who looked like Raiden. It was mostly parody stuff making fun of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat but the game was foreign with subtitles. At the end of the game when you found all of the hidden spots, you were treated to the devs goofing around and they had a series of desktops in the background that the characters from the game destroyed except for the computer running Slackware. The characters would stop and one of the devs was screaming to them about how long it took him to get that machine up and running and he would beat them up to Benny Hill Music.

Another game that I am trying to remember was a 5 min game from an early game jam were you spent your time in a shack fighting off hordes of shadow monsters and every now and then the narrator would pause the game and give you a choice of weapon (Uzi or Shotgun) then later on you would pick which parts of the shack would break and the type of monsters you had to face.

Anyone remember these? If so - the names would be a help - it's been bothering me that I forgot these names.

How to Uninstall Lutris?

I installed Lutris, and it didn't work (please don't ask what was wrong, I just want to uninstall). Unfortunately, the webpage does not offer uninstallation instructions. I also don't understand what some of the commands were doing when I installed (I know, dumb idea).

I used the Ubuntu installation instructions, and the command I don't understand is the top one.

Thanks in advance.

FPS game benchmarking tool?

I'm looking for some sort of Linux native tool that captures and outputs frames-per-second, similar to how GLXOSD does it for frametime. Preferably, I'd like to also get an average FPS for the entire test duration.

Is there a program out there that does this? If so, what?

HOWTO: Vulkan and DXVK in Wine 3.4+

04/13/2018 04:12:23 CEST

roothorick
HOWTO: Vulkan and DXVK in Wine 3.4+

The big thing that a lot of people miss: DXVK is dependent on Vulkan working inside Wine. If Wine's Vulkan isn't working, DXVK won't work. And if Vulkan doesn't work in native-space, Wine's Vulkan won't work. So there's three levels that need to all be set up: Native Vulkan, Wine Vulkan, and DXVK itself.

This is written with Ubuntu package names. Shouldn't be too hard to find what you need for your own distro. I'm also assuming you're running a 64bit OS.

Part 1: Native Vulkan

If you have hardware OpenGL, you have most of the pieces at this level already. Install appropriate Vulkan drivers: nvidia-390 (libnvidia-gl-390 for 18.04) for Nvidia binary drivers, mesa-vulkan-drivers AND mesa-vulkan-drivers:i386 for everything else. libvulkan1 and libvulkan1:i386 are probably already installed as a dependency, but check. I recommend installing vulkan-utils and running vulkaninfo to verify that Vulkan is functional and sees your card.

Part 2: Wine Vulkan

You will have to do the below once each for all of your Wine prefixes. I'm assuming of course that you have Wine itself installed and working.

  1. Set WINEPREFIX appropriately.
  2. Download this and save to $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Windows/winevulkan.json
  3. Download this and execute it thus: wine64 regedit winevulkan.reg. The wine64 part is important!

I strongly recommend that at this point you download the Vulkan SDK (winetricks vulkansdk) and run the cube example therein, both the 64bit and 32bit versions, to verify that you do indeed have a fully working Vulkan setup.

Vulkan in Wine should now be fully functional. If you don't care about DXVK, you're done!

Part 3: DXVK

  1. Install MinGW-W64. There's a bit of a gotcha here: DXVK requires MinGW-W64 GCC/G++ 6.x or newer (possibly 7.x, try it and let me know). Rolling-release distros will probably be fine, but many people running fixed-release distros (particluarly Ubuntu pre-17.10) will need to do some legwork to get a new enough version on their system, or use a separate machine/dualboot/Docker/VM to compile under a newer distro. (I recommend the latter, to be honest.) Ubuntu 17.10 and newer can simply install the mingw-w64 metapackage to get everything they need. Also, you will need the POSIX threads version; for the Ubuntu official packages, simply sudo update-alternatives --config i686-w64-mingw32-gcc and select /usr/bin/x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++-posix from the list, then do likewise for i686-w64-mingw32-g++, x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc, and x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++.
  2. Install other build dependencies, namely meson ninja-build libvulkan-dev
  3. One last dependency not available in official Ubuntu repositories or any PPA I can find. Download glslang (for Linux) and unpack it someplace. Add the appropriate folders therein to PATH, INCLUDE, and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
  4. Download and unpack (or git clone) DXVK someplace.
  5. Enter the unpacked sources and build:

    meson --prefix="$PWD/32" --cross-file build-win32.txt build.w32 ninja -C build.w32 install meson --prefix="$PWD/64" --cross-file build-win64.txt build.w64 ninja -C build.w64 install

  6. Set your WINEPREFIX, then 32/bin/setup_dxvk.sh; 64/bin/setup_dxvk.sh. (Run them directly i.e. not with sh; they use bash extensions.) Repeat for each prefix in which you want to use DXVK.

Hang onto the DXVK source directory for easy updating, but also because the actual DXVK binaries are inside the 32/ and 64/ folders. If you want to put them elsewhere, adjust the prefix arguments to meson appropriately and run setup_dxvk.sh from the new locations.

DX11 applications should now use DXVK. You can turn it off with 32/bin/setup_dxvk.sh reset; 64/bin/setup_dxvk.sh reset and on again by calling the scripts normally. You can also have it enabled in some prefixes, but not others.

"Safe" to buy LiS: Before The Storm now?

So, Before The Storm is now available with a Tux/Linux icon over on Humble (Regular version (40% off), Deluxe edition). It only comes as a Steam key.

But over on Steam itself it still only has a Windows icon! So, if I buy it now, on Humble or on Steam, and register it on Steam now, will it be registered as a Linux sale?

I've seen some times that Humble hasn't added the Linux icon even some time after a game has been released for Linux on Steam. This is the first time, I think, I've seen it have the Linux icon before Steam. So, is it safe?

Anyone able to successfully run UE4 games in Wine?

I'm testing a game called ABZU and it refuses to run. Getting some visual C and DotNet errors, but have applied vcrun2015 and dotnet45... still no go.

Its a Direct X 11 game, so maybe using DXVK will help?

Play next week's hyped Switch release on Linux today!

On the 20th, a lightly remastered version of retro title The Way (2016) is being released on the Nintendo Switch. This game is a retro-platformer heavily inspired by "cinematic platformers" Another World and Flashback from the 1990s. (Developer AMA for the new release here.)

It's available on Linux/SteamOS now, so some of you may wish to play the "new Switch release" on Linux before it's released for the Nintendo. Yes, the thread title is a bit of clickbait, but we should celebrate platforms wins, not ignore them.

Need help writing a shell script to launch my game.

I have successfully installed a modified version of Tony Hawk's Underground 2 called THUG PRO. I have been launching it via WineFile but I would like to cut that process down to one click if I can.

I am having trouble changing directories once I'm in my "c_Drive"

The directory is drive_c/users/(My user name)/ Local Settings/Application Data/ Thug Pro / and the EXE file is THUGProLauncher.exe

I also have to force wine to run this in 32bit mode by using this command:

export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-thugpro WINEARCH=win32.

Any help is much appreciated.

How to use steam://run/440 on 32bit Linux

I installed a minimal Debian install on an old MacBook (with iceWM) and I installed steam. Given that my Debian installation is i386, and Steam web browser does not support i386, I cannot add TF2 to my library so I can play it through the Steam browser. So i go to firefox and I go to steam web site and I find TF2 and I press Play Now, well, Firefox cannot handle steam://run/440, could anyone guide me on how to get this working.

Disgusted with Windows, what are the best ways to game on Linux?

Despite being a long time Windows user, I am somewhat acquainted with Ubuntu, but know nil about gaming on Linux. This new update Microsoft put out, once again, caused more problems for my PC. Really sick of dealing with the flat out disrespect for user privacy, updates installing bloatware, etc. In your opinion, what Linux OS is regarded as "the best" (for gaming) and what are some of your favorite titles available?

Battlefield 4 (DXVK) not starting - what did I miss?

Hi folks!

Since the last release, people reported that Battlefield 4 is finally runable via DXVK. I'm using wine-staging-3.5 (without CSMT activated) and bla bla bla, as stated in this Lutris installer.

When I'm starting BF4 now, Origin disappears for 1 second, but then comes back again with an error/crash.

I fired up Origin in a terminal and this is the output when I start Battlefield4: https://pastebin.com/rDGNQRUF2

BF4 is being started at about line 730, the process itself is being shown at line 953, crashing half a second after that.

There is also a little discussion on the Lutris forums, but without much success on solving the problem. I also created a step-by-step on how I installed BF4:

My steps for now:

  1. Installing Origin via Lutris
  2. Setting Wine version to staging-3.5
  3. WINEPREFIX=~/Games/origin/ setup_dxvk64 (via AUR package on Arch)

I then moved the whole folder to another disk and symlinked it to ~/Games/origin/, as BF4 needs an unreasonable amount of available disk space. This worked for any other game, so I don't think that's the problem. If I don't do this (with about 90 GB free space), the installation of BF4 doesn't finish. No error, no nothing, it simple doesn't come to an end (after several hours).

  1. Downloading and installing BF4. (I deactivated DLCs to have a faster result)
  2. That DirectX error shown earlier
  3. cd ~/Games/origin/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Origin Games/Battlefield 4/__Installer/directx/redist && rm *.cab
  4. Now installation finishes!
  5. Starting the game and just get this error: https://i.imgur.com/o2YGkFf.png

I'm trying on Arch Linux (everything up-to-date) with the latest nvidia proprietary drivers. Do you have any idea on what I missed out to get it running?

Questions about dxvk

I would like to have basic infos in dxvk like:

1) is there any updated list of working dxvk games? (I'd like to know for example if anyone got working gas guzzlers Extreme with It).

2)is there a Plan, a target winehq release, to merge dxvk with wine-devel, wine-staging branch?

3)is anyone preparing tools or something similar to avoid vulkan-sdk install for the use of dxvk? What is lutris team doing about actually?

Thanks for response.

amggpu working wine setup using Gallium Nine

So I recycled an R9 290X that used to be a mining card into my media center and game machine, which is using Linux Mint 18. Nothing fancy, configuring both grub (radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1) and X11 (Driver "amdgpu" etc), I had the amdgpu recognized and "Direct Rendering" enabled. Tried it with a couple of native games, worked as expected.

Now wine was a totally different story, not a single game that used to work with the previous nvidia card (GTX 560) I had on this machine would launch, each one of them crashing over d3dx9. I tried many wine versions and flavors, various native or builtin combinations, no luck. I also tried using the radeon driver instead, same story. So I was about to fallback to the previous _nvidia card when I remembered about Gallium Nine and gave a try to these two repositories:

This time it's a totally different story, every single game I tried works, and fast! I definitely recommend this setup to anyone struggling with amdgpu and wine as it happen to be a very straightforward upgrade.

Setting up Uplay with DXVK on Lutris

Just looking to set up Uplay but have been been having issues. Got the script from: https://lutris.net/games/uplay/ and after installing it just crashes. I told it to run the executable UbisoftGameLauncher.exe and it launches, but when I try to import my games it just says all the files are corrupt. I also tried changing the executable to default to UbisoftGameLauncher.exe and it just crashes at that point. Only way to get it launching at all is by clicking "run exe within wine prefix" every time.

How to play Far Cry 4 and Far Cry Primal on GNU/Linux tutorial

Far Cry Primal in-game: https://imgur.com/a/medDY

  1. Install Wine Staging 3.5, Winetricks and Lutris, then download DXVK (64-bit). I get my DXVK files from: https://haagch.frickel.club/files/dxvk/latest/64/bin/ . If you do not trust this, feel free to compile the dlls yourself, the repo is located here: https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk
  2. Open Lutris and click on the '+' to add a new game. Once the 'Add a new game' menu is open, check 'Show advanced options'. After that, in the 'Game info' tab, name it to how you please. For the runner, click on 'Wine (Runs Windows Games)'
  3. While still in Lutris, click on the 'Game options' tab. Set the executable to either Far Cry 4's .exe or Far Cry Primal's .exe. With 'Wine prefix', that's up to you on where you want it stored. I just place it into my game directory, e.g.: /run/media/administrator/Storage/Games/Far Cry Primal/wine. With 'Prefix architecture', set it to '64-bit'.
  4. While still in Lutris, click on the 'Runner options' tab and ensure that the 'Wine version' is on Wine staging 3.5. (Optional, for DXVK's HUD) Now click on the 'System options' tab, then scroll down to where it says 'Environment variables'. Click on 'Add', double-click the key, and add in 'DXVK_HUD'. Now double-click on the value, and add in '1'. More information on the HUD is here in README.MD: https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk . Setting DXVK_HUD = 1 is equivilant to DXVK_HUD = devinfo,fps. Once you've finished that, click on 'Save'.
  5. While in Lutris, right-click on your newly added game, then click 'Wine configuration' to generate your wine prefix.
  6. Open a terminal, then type "WINEPREFIX=''/directory/to/your/recently/created/wine/prefix' winetricks xact d3dcompiler_43".
  7. Change the directory of the terminal to where you downloaded DXVK (d3d11.dll, dxgi,dll and setup_dxvk.sh), then type "WINEPREFIX=''/directory/to/your/recently/created/wine/prefix' bash setup_dxvk.sh".
  8. Final step. In the termial, type "WINEPREFIX=''/directory/to/your/recently/created/wine/prefix' winecfg". In the 'Applications' tab, make sure the Windows version is set to 'Windows XP'. Now click on the 'Libraries' tab, and ensure that you see the following: *d3dcompiler_43 (native), d3d11 (native), dxgi (native), xaudio2_0 to 9 (native,builtin). If you do not, type in the textbox where you see 'New override for library' the missing override and press enter. Then click the recently added item, click 'Edit', then set the load order accordingly.
  9. Now we play. Go to Lutris, click on the recently added game and click play. Enjoy.

P.S. I used NVIDIA's proprietary drivers.

Trying to configure USB SNES Controller

I recently got a Samsung Chromebook, and promptly installed Xfce on it because I hate ChromeOS with a passion. I'm currently using it as a way to learn and understand Linux.

I purchased a USB SNES Controller with the goal of playing emulators (You can't really do anything else with it). Problem is, it doesn't recognize the controller. I installed a bunch of things to try and get this thing to work, followed countless tutorials, read hundreds of articles, nothing worked.

I even found out that /dev/input/js0 doesn't even exist.

If anyone can offer advice or help, that'd be great. I'll elaborate on everything as much as I can.

I didn't text the FPS but if I had to guess it's in the 40's to 50's range. The movement is really jittery and janky. It's not as fluid and silky as on Windows. But I'm not going back to Windows, that's not an option.

Very Strange Skyrim WINE Bug

Skyrim has a very strange bug, that I have tested with a new save, vanilla save, and an old save, that is constant across all. You know how in the intro to Skyrim, how far you can turn your head left/right is restricted, well, that persists throughout the entire game for me, even on saves I didn't play through the intro on Linux (when I used to dual-boot). Any ideas?

How does playing online games on linux works ?
  • If I play CSGO (steam game) on linux, will I be playing only with linux players or is the player base shared between linux and windows version of the game ? Same for say, Skullgirls ?
  • Is there any online linux (native, non-wine) game ?
  • How does that work from a server perspective ? Do the dev have to set their server in a particular way or is there some kind of "library" that allows you to matchmake windows and linux players ?

Sid Meier's Civilization Beyond Earth

Hi there

Have some issue with Sid Meier's Civilization Beyond Earth on Steam.

If i launch from GUI the game fails to start. It says running for a short time then just stops. This is from steam runtime. Steam native fails to launch. After login the window disappears , i can see a process for Steam but ... nothing.

I tried to run the game from CLI and got the following :

$ ./CivBE

./CivBE: /usr/lib32/libcurl-gnutls.so.4: no version information available (required by ./CivBE)

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; no appID found.

Either launch the game from Steam, or put the file steam_appid.txt containing the correct appID in your game folder.

Note : I did go through some Arch help and made sure I have all the libraries installed

Any advice how to get it working or what to check next would be appreciated.

Distro : Antergos

Current Kernel : 4.15.15-1

Nvidia driver : 390.48-3

Cpu : AMD FX8350

Help : Vulkan demos on wine-staging-3.5 unable to load compatible Vulkan ICD.

I'm running Arch Linux with wine-staging-nine-3.5 I've installed vulkan-icd-loader and vulkan-intel. Native linux applications using vulkan work fine. However, when I try to run windows vulkan demo apps from the LunarG sdk via wine, I get : wine cube.exe A message box (from the demo) pops up telling me I don't have a compatible Vulkan ICD, and that VK_KHR_surface extension could not be found. But the same demos work fine when compiled natively for Linux. What should I do?

killall processes, but only from a specific WINEPREFIX

Hey folks!

I guess the title says it all. I use Lutris for running my games and often I have like two seperate prefixes open.

So Lutris has its own "Stop" button, which kills all processes of the last started WINE prefix, but when I start the second game/prefix, then only processes of the second prefix are affected.

Is there a command with which I can kill apps/processes ONLY from a specific WINE prefix?

E.g. I start from those two prefixes:

  • ~/Games/mygame
  • ~/Games/dickbutt

Now I only want to kill the processes of ~/Games/mygame

[tech support] Hearthstone only displays silhouette of cursor

I can't figure out why Hearthstone only displays the silhouette of my cursor. The game runs fine otherwise, no issues. It's just sort of annoying and ugly. It is for every single curor in game, the same for turning a page, same for the waiting logo, every one. Here's an image for example.

How to use multiple Wine versions without building them from source?

As the title says.

I used POL to achieve that, but now I wanted to install Wine 3.5-staging and POL doesn't have it available for download. I tried building it from source, but I just couldn't get it to work (all the dependencies, ugh). I could just remove POL, but I have old prefixes there with different Wine versions, which I still use.

Is there a way to get all these Wine versions + prefixes and use them alongside without POL? And get newer Wine versions in the future?

Low FPS on CSGO

Hello !

I'm playing CSGO exclusively under Linux for some time now, and it's working great, but I still have way lower FPS than under Windows. I have around 200fps max on Competitive matchs which is already great (It depend on the map tho, it can drop to 100fps sometimes which is bad because I have a 165hz monitor), but when I play on community servers with more people, it drops to lower than 60fps on the same competitive maps, so I think I'm CPU limited.

Is there any tips ? I'm running i3 without any compositor (I kill compton when I start the game), I have a GTX 1080 and an i7 5820k. (I also have a 1050 but when I play, I start an X server on the 1080 and play on here, I don't know if it's relevant).

Thanks !

gamelord12
I played a bunch of games at PAX East. Here are my thoughts and the outlook on Linux support for each one.

Hiya, folks. I switched to Linux as my main OS right around this time last year, so it's nice to know which of the games on the show floor are actually relevant to me. For those of you who didn't get the chance to go to Boston yourselves, I asked all the developers I could about Linux support for their games. These games are listed in a platform agnostic order of my opinion. In other words, not all of them support Linux, but if they did, the ones at the bottom would be the ones that I'm most likely to buy, and the ones at the top would be the ones I'm least likely to buy.

Religion

This is a real time strategy game where you play as a prophet of a futuristic religion and recruit followers to do your bidding. Once a citizen is converted, you can spend resources to change that unit to a particular type, like a warrior. Unfortunately, we ran into technical problems during the demo that made selecting all units of a particular type extraordinarily difficult. Additionally, English is very much not the devs' first language, and the voice acting was not great.

Linux support: A Tux icon was present in the trailer. It was one of only two games I found with a Tux icon, where most choose to just say "Steam" or "Humble" or "GOG".

Golem Gates

Another real time strategy game (I'm not biased against the genre by putting these two so low on the list, I swear), but this one has a card game aspect to it as well. You assemble a deck of units and gain energy over time, not unlike Clash Royale or Hearthstone, except the developer had a very clear "no MTX bullshit" mantra that I respected. You are encouraged to capture control points that expand your maximum energy cap so that you can destroy your enemy's main base. There's also a single player story campaign with unique twists on the design. It seems both neat and elegantly simple, though it might be a bit slow for my tastes. I'll admit I didn't get my hands on this one to say for sure, but I talked to the dev while watching others play.

Linux support: They forked an old version of Unreal where they weren't happy with Mac support. They note that Fortnite seems to be running well on Mac, so they'll likely revisit that and attempt Linux support after testing a Switch version.

Rico

The developer of this game said he took his inspiration from Rainbow Six Vegas, but I never played that one. I played a ton of Rainbow Six 1 and 3, and this doesn't feel like that. I would probably describe it as the cross section of Left 4 Dead and the Call of Duty "breach and clear" sections, playable in 2 player coop split screen. It seemed to be generating a level rather than loading one, as though you're intended to replay it a lot. I had fun with it, and we had an exciting round that ended in victory with only seconds left on the clock, but I got the impression that the game might be too simple to hold my attention for very long.

Linux support: The developer was non-committal on Linux support, but said that it would be out on Windows on Steam near the end of the year "for now". I read that to mean "no Linux support", but I've been surprised before.

City of Brass

This is a 3D roguelike where you have a whip and a sword. Even if you didn't have a whip, I'd say the game took some inspiration from the original Castlevania in that attacking is a very deliberate, delayed motion. The levels are littered with objects to throw, blow up, grapple to, or lure enemies into, but the actual actions that your character can do feel very limited. I don't know how else to describe it, because I've definitely played simpler games that I enjoy more, but it just felt like the only thing they wanted to do is pull an enemy toward you with your whip, then follow it up with a slash. Perhaps the complexity ramps up in later levels.

Linux support: I couldn't find a dev to talk to, but judging from the Steam forums, it doesn't look like this is coming to Linux.

Brawlout

I am a huge fan of Smash Bros. I'll always get the new Nintendo console as a result. This is an indie Smash clone, and it's not the first. However, this one feels a lot like Smash 4, and my skills carry over effortlessly. The biggest difference I found is that there is no shield; only spot dodging. That does change things up a lot. I played as an ultra patriotic bald eagle named Senator Feathers, which I'm way into. Also, the main character from Guacamelee is a guest character. It's got only the slightest amount of jank to it, and the Switch version has longer load times than I'm comfortable with, but it was still pretty cool.

Linux support: "We have one Mac player and one Linux player who say it works on WINE." So in other words, "unlikely".

Mothergunship

This is a level based bullet hell FPS that feels a lot like late 90s shooters and moves at a similar speed. You've got a left hand weapon and a right hand weapon, and you can do some minor crafting at mid-level shops. It's kind of simplistic and had a lot of stops and starts for load times, but it felt good to play.

Linux support: The guy I asked about Linux support went and asked the programmer, out of earshot about Linux support, and I think I saw the programmer laugh at the question. No plans for Linux.

Trailblazers

They didn't use these words, but I think the best way to describe this game is "Splatoon, if it was a racing game". It's played in teams of two, and you lay down paint of your color that provides a boost to you and your teammates on subsequent laps. Because you get points for laying down paint and boosting on it, you can win even if you don't come in first place. It played well enough, but I only got to race against the AI. I'm not sure if I was terrible at the game or if the AI isn't very interesting, but even though we won, I hardly saw the AI after the first lap.

Linux support: This is the only other game I found with a Tux logo on its sign. It was one of the tallest signs there, too, so I could see it from across the show floor.

Super Meat Boy Forever

Even though it's a runner, it still feels a lot like Meat Boy, and as a result, makes you feel badass for finishing a level. That being said, most of my deaths could have been avoided if I simply had the ability to stop running or turn around, like you could in the previous game, so it feels weird for the series to regress in that way.

Linux support: I didn't get a chance to ask about Linux support, but I get the feeling it'll just happen eventually anyway. Tick off all the checkboxes for platform support and such.

Dark Devotion

I'm not sure I really like the name "soulslike" as a genre, but...it's a 2D soulslike. The art and animations are great, but I'm not sure I'm super fond of the controls. They're sluggish and deliberate like Castlevania attacks, but the boss fight in the demo didn't seem to play by the same rules. One of the reasons people like Artorias in Dark Souls is that it feels like he's got the same limits as you do, but this boss just felt like he could attack and block faster than you can do anything to him, and I wasn't a fan of that. Perhaps I'm just bad at it though.

Linux support: "No guarantees", but he would like to support as many platforms as possible, and after consoles, he'd like to look into it.

Antigraviator

I love the hell out of F-Zero GX, and it's been 15 years since its release. I really just want that game exactly but in HD and online. This game is a lot like F-Zero. It's got hover cars and a great sense of speed. It doesn't have an announcer to scream "YOU'VE GOT BOOST POWER! YEAH, THE FINAL LAP! YOU'RE GOING THE WRONG WAY!". The absence of that dumb announcer that I love so much does not do this game any favors, and it doesn't seem like you can side swipe other cars or angle your boosters off of jumps for extra air. Apart from that though, it seems like a fine F-Zero clone.

Linux support: "Probably". They don't have a Linux build now, but they did on an old version a while back. It's a Unity game though, so they want to do one. They were more hesitant about a Mac build, since they don't own a Mac to test it on.

QUBE 2

You guys know what this is. It's a puzzle game about blocks that takes cues from Portal. A sequel to the other puzzle game about blocks that takes cues from Portal. I didn't play it, but I talked to the dev.

Linux support: "You're the third person to ask me about Linux. If we get enough requests, we'll do it". I swear I didn't just ask him three times.

Below

So this is a roguelike but also not. You start every game from a ship coming ashore, and you explore an overworld that doesn't change, but apparently once you get into a dungeon, then things are randomized. I didn't get a good sense of it from the demo, but it sure is beautiful. After a little bit of combat, I ended up dying twice from floor traps, which wasn't great, since trekking back from the ship takes quite some time. The developer tells me you can unlock Dark Souls-esque shortcuts as you go along to ease the penalty for dying. Starting from that ship was a hell of a penalty for a show floor demo though.

Linux support: Sounds like Microsoft bought this one. Xbox One and Windows only.

Wormhole Wars

I'll also state up front that I didn't get to play this one either. It bills itself as Halo + Portal, and that seems to be entirely accurate. I have enjoyed my share of Halo in the past, and this seemed to nail what it was going for. Changing a long range fight to a short range fight in a matter of seconds, via portals, is an interesting hook, and I would have totally believed that it was a new mode added to Halo 5 if you told me that and showed me footage for this game. Except it was played on mouse and keyboard. Unfortunately it's multiplayer-only in a crowded market; it may not live for very long.

Linux support: I couldn't find a developer to ask, but I tweeted them, and hopefully they respond. One of the devs' dads was fielding questions, and he didn't really know any answers to technical stuff.

Soul Calibur VI

The last Soul Calibur I played was 2, on the GameCube. I love that game. It's been long enough that I could go for another one. Mitsurugi is still fun to play as.

Linux support: There's no indication this game will come to Linux, all of the technical people are in Japan, and their basically-booth-babe representatives probably don't even know what Linux is.

Black Future '88

Because this game needs every buzz word, it's a 2D roguelike Metroidvania action shooter set in a cyberpunk future. The controls are really tight, and it feels good to play. The hook here is that in addition to a health bar, you've got a clock that's continually counting down. The upgrades and pickups you get throughout play will listen trade health for time or time for health. I got an upgrade at one point that, if memory serves, took half of my health but gave me +3 seconds per kill. I liked what I played.

Linux support: After having to go through three exhibitors in the booth, I finally got the answer (quite politely): "Not coming to Linux. I can definitively say that".

Disco Elysium

A detective RPG that they describe as Baldur's Gate + True Detective. There's a lot of good narration and foreshadowing of whatever psychological thriller story that they're setting up. There are plentiful opportunities for skill checks, and the game always exposes the math and dice rolls behind the result. The presentation is on point, and beyond that, it seems like they still respect the player enough to come up with your own deductions about the crime scene (your options will differ depending on the results of earlier skill checks, who you talked to, and what you said or did not say to those people). It was a strong, though lengthy, showroom demo.

Linux support: They've gotten a lot of requests for Linux support, and they'll be looking into it after initial launch this summer. They don't anticipate any roadblocks, but they don't want to commit to a "yes" just yet.

Blazing Chrome

An obvious titular reference to Gibson's Burning Chrome. I posted a thread on this subreddit not long ago about Genesis emulators because I wanted to play Contra Hard Corps after discovering it on Giant Bomb in a recent video series. I passed by this game on the show floor, saw the character select screen, and immediately recognized that this game is channeling Contra Hard Corps. I played it myself, loved it, shot things with a laser whip, died in a fun boss fight, and can't express enough about how happy I am that there's a modern game like this. I didn't have headphones on to see if the music is as good as its predecessor, but this looks like a long lost Neo Geo arcade game. It's a little slower than Contra, evoking Metal Slug a bit.

Linux support: There was no dev around to ask about Linux support, but GOL reported a while back that it's going to happen. That seems to be the best info we have right now.

Door Kickers: Action Squad

This was way better than I expected. I'm a big fan of the first Door Kickers, so I wasn't thrilled to see this announced before seeing footage of Door Kickers 2. That being said, I played it with a friend of mine, and the action is quick and tactical. Coop requires communication, which is cool. I do have to wonder how good of a single player game it will make.

Linux support: "Yeah, definitely". Right on. In early access, it's only on Windows right now though.

Due Process

You've probably seen videos of this one. It was announced shortly after Rainbow Six: Siege was shown off at E3 with canned voice chatter, and these basically designed a better Rainbow Six than Rainbow Six. Siege is great, and the occasional match with my friends is one of my few use cases for Windows still, but it's a bit exhausting having to learn like 40 characters with different abilities and a dozen maps so that you can know at all what you're doing. Due Process is more meat-and-potatoes, and it has a planning phase where you can draw on the map. The map will be different every time you play, so there's no memorization in play here. You come up with a plan and try to outsmart your opponents. It's awesome. I do fear for a developer of their size and their ability to both grow a stable audience and combat cheating. It'll be out "when it's done".

Linux support: Windows only. This was especially funny because a Windows update box came up on someone's computer mid-match, and it sounded like they'd been battling that all weekend. The community manager tried to pass it off as though the problem was that the computers had been in storage and not updated for six months, but we all know the truth. We know that they could have updated on Wednesday and Windows still would have been a pain about it.

Dead Cells

This has been growing quite the following in early access on Windows, and having finally played it now, it's no secret why. It's damn fun to play. It's a roguelike 2D action game, focused primarily on melee combat, with a handful of Dark Souls in its formula. It's early access, but it felt more polished than most final releases I've played.

Linux support: There was someone filling in for the developers in the booth due to surgery (it didn't sound serious, but hopefully they get better soon). Her official answer was "ask us after consoles". Still, the FAQ on the Steam forums has me feeling pretty good about the chances on this one.

Surviving Mars crashes System76 Galago Pro in Linux but runs fine in Win 10

I'm trying to play Surviving Mars on my System76 Galago Pro in Solus and on Neon/KDE. On both operating systems, I can get to the main menu, but when I either load a game or start a new game the splash displays, music starts and.... nothing. I have tried dialing back the video settings to minimum (speculating that the Galago's integrated Intel graphics might be the culprit) with no success.

Following the same steps, the game launches without a complaint in Steam on default settings.

Any notion what the problem may be, or what I may be able to do? EB

Fallout 4 wine-staging 3.5 with dsound patch, dxvk, archlinux: no sound in main menu and no voices in game

Hello, I am trying to get Fallout 4 to work in wine. I'm working on a fresh win64 prefix, where I installed dxvk 64 bit from here (https://haagch.frickel.club/files/dxvk/latest/64/bin/).

I patched wine-staging 3.5 myself to add the dsound patch, and after that the game launched (was suffering from black screen issue before).

I do get in game, but the sound is partial. The sound from the "Please stand by" screen seems to be working fine, but there is no audio in the main menu, and when I get in game it seems to work, but I cannot hear any voices.

I tried running winetricks xact, but every time I get this: https://hastebin.com/qiculanebo.rb.

I also tried to change the audio subsystem for the prefix to ALSA, with no difference.

I have the following overrides set up:

  • *gameoverlayrenderer disabled
  • d3d11 native
  • dxgi native
  • winegstreamer disabled
  • xaudio* native, builtin

If you could help me getting at least the voices working that'd be great.

Also, while we're at it I have another problem related to the mouse: I have enabled the "automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows" option, but I have a weird issue in game: I can move the mouse left indefinitely, but if I move it right at some point it just stops moving (mind that I have a second monitor on my right).

Thank you in advance, hope you can help me figuring this out.

Please help with StarCraft 2 and WINE

Hello everyone,

I am cross-posting this from r/linux_gaming as suggested: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/8apv8f/please_help_with_starcraft_2_and_wine/

I'm back to Fedora 27 after an year break due to SSD space limitation, however after an unwanted updated was installed by Microsoft on my Windows 10, I made sure to make the space. I'm extremely happy that I did because now I remember and experience all of the benefits of the OS.

I do have a Windows 10 partition, but I would prefer to not have to use it most of the time, save for the few games that refuse to run on Linux. I remember that an year or so ago, I managed to run Battle.Net under WINE rendering all content perfectly with a simple "winetricks dotnet40" and I was getting comparable performance in StarCraft 2 to Windows.

Now on the latest WINE and Battle.Net however, I cannot do either of the above. Even though I have troubleshooted this issue my entire day yesterday, read through the entire WineHQ page (and tried every workaround listed there), searched every topic I could find, tested under multiple WINE versions (latest on my distro WINE 3.4.1, wine-staging 2.21, wine-staging 2.10) I cannot get Battle.Net to display content correctly or StarCraft 2 to run with acceptable performance.

Regarding Battle.Net, I have tried multiple workarounds and fixes using winetricks on WINE 3.4.1, including corefonts vcrun2015 dotnet35 dotnet40 dotnet46 ie8 and Windows XP, Windows 7, 32-bit, 64-bit prefixes. I have tested for hours every different combination but nothing renders the content correctly. What gets closest is wine-staging 2.21 but it doesn't render text correctly. I think this might be fixed by dotnet40 or corefonts, but the problem is I cannot install winetricks on that version (winetricks only works with WINE 3.4, I tried installing it manually).

Ignoring the above issues with rendering web elements, I can get StarCraft 2 to launch just fine, but I am getting at most choppy 50-60 frames. I went back to Windows 10 to compare the performance, and in the absolutely identical situation (map start) I was getting smooth 120-130 FPS. Before this was fixed by enabling CMTS in WINE. In some cases maybe Windows would perform better, but it finally made things acceptable. Enabling this setting now doesn't seem to help me. I tried enabling it with winetricks on WINE 3.4 (even though it should be enabled by default from WINE 3.3 as far as I saw in the changelogs) or enabling it in wine-staging, but again same awful performance. Note that this was also tested on the multiple setups, versions, different prefixes and everything.

Please help me out with this. Has anyone managed to get it working and functioning normally with acceptable performance? What steps do I need to do? Or has the performance been broken and degraded through the patches and that's just how it is currently...

PS: Note that this shouldn't be an issue with my graphics drivers or anything. I have installed nVidia drivers and am updated to the latest drivers and Fedora patches. Dota 2 is running just fine (albeit a weird bug that causes chopping if I have any desktop elements below the game that are not minimised, which I don't remember before) with just 10 FPS less than in Windows 10 on average.

Please help with StarCraft 2 and WINE

Hello everyone,

I'm back to Fedora 27 after an year break due to SSD space limitation, however after an unwanted updated was installed by Microsoft on my Windows 10, I made sure to make the space. I'm extremely happy that I did because now I remember and experience all of the benefits of the OS.

I do have a Windows 10 partition, but I would prefer to not have to use it most of the time, save for the few games that refuse to run on Linux. I remember that an year or so ago, I managed to run Battle.Net under WINE rendering all content perfectly with a simple "winetricks dotnet40" and I was getting comparable performance in StarCraft 2 to Windows.

Now on the latest WINE and Battle.Net however, I cannot do either of the above. Even though I have troubleshooted this issue my entire day yesterday, read through the entire WineHQ page (and tried every workaround listed there), searched every topic I could find, tested under multiple WINE versions (latest on my distro WINE 3.4.1, wine-staging 2.21, wine-staging 2.10) I cannot get Battle.Net to display content correctly or StarCraft 2 to run with acceptable performance.

Regarding Battle.Net, I have tried multiple workarounds and fixes using winetricks on WINE 3.4.1, including corefonts vcrun2015 dotnet35 dotnet40 dotnet46 ie8 and Windows XP, Windows 7, 32-bit, 64-bit prefixes.

Our beta Podcast

[Talk] [Tech] [Gaming] @Mostly_Linux on #Mostly_Gaming (Episode beta 0.02)

SFW. Some mild language. The podcast is currently in season 0, a beta season as we work through the kinks. Have received good feedback on sound quality and length of music. We've ordered new recording equipment for the premiere, likely next month. We're mostly testing out the technology now. We're adding a co-host when we move to launch. Sharing it here as an "early access".

Apologies for the low quality.

In this episode we talk about Rush and Ready Player One, the Weekly Rant this week is ok Far Cry 5 Reviews, we review the New Dell XPS 13, and our journey through Linux distro land as we decide what to pair with it.

The podcast focuses on videogames, with a focus on Linux and freedom. It bends libertarianish and often mixes views on politics and current events into a weekly rant.

Some of these links may not yet be active as we're waiting for approval. The RSS link is the best bet it the website.

Do I join the Linux Gaming Community?
 Giving up Windows completely will most likely never happen to me. However I do have an old PC that has just been sitting in a closet for a year now. I have been meaning to sell it, however the hassle of having my information on the HDD has delayed me in doing so. 
 Currently, it does seem slightly appealing to me to actually install Linux on it and connect it to my monitor as well so I can have a Linux and a Windows system. There will most likely be no major benefit from this other than the fact I get to play around with the Linux OS.
 The PC has a GeForce 970 and AMD FX 8350 inside of it. It has received no love for a year and turning it into a Linux would offer me more of a reason to have it out. Do I turn my old PC into a Linux System?

Battle.net

I may need some help. I am having issue with the Battle.net client.

I am on wine 3.5-1 (also tried staging) and the client does install nicely BUT the menu buttons are absent and I am unable to login to my account.

Any advice ?

Battle.net with DXVK

With all the DXVK hype lately i wanted to try it too and so i'm trying to set up Battle.net for DXVK and it doesn't work. I made a new 64bit prefix with staging-3.5, copied the dxvk files (d3d11.dll and dxgi.dll) to system32, set the dlls to native and run the installer.

When the installer is done i get a window saying: A required DLL could not be found. Please download and reinstall Battle.net.

The installer went through, but when i try to start Battle.net, i get the same error. I have also copied the dlls next to the Battle.net Launcher.exe and in the Battle.net.9997 folder where all the other dlls actually are. No changes at all.

Did i miss something?

DiRT Rally still not working for me, any ideas?

Hey guys, have any of you been able to run DiRT Rally lately? I am running Ubuntu 17.10, with NVIDIA 390.48, and it crashes just after clicking play on the Feral launcher. I have tried the 'LANG=C %command%' launch option to no effect.

Comments:

Hi there. As you can see, performances are not very good on mid-low end systems for XCOM: Enemy Unknown. A very strange thing for a 2012 game. And another question: why performances are so bad even if System Requirements says that i should expect 60+ FPS @ 1080p resolution? Simple. Because Linux requirements are so much higher than Windows requirements for this game. That's pretty inexplicable. For instance Windows requires 4 GB of RAM as recommended, while Linux requires 8 GB. Twice. That's why my system struggles to give any good performance.

However i should say that the game is pretty much playable and enjoyable with rare stuttering moments at medium/low settings.

Feel free to ask me any questions and please tell me if you like this kind of stuff and if it could be useful for you, thanks.

[Help] World of Tanks ( wine + dxvk )

I've been trying to make WoT run with wine + dxvk. Problem is that every time I run the game, the virtual desktop opens for 3 seconds and then closes.
I've been runing the WoT_installer through Lutris, with:

system-wide
.Installed libvulkan1, vulkan-utils, mesa-vulkan-drivers (64bit drivers)
.Installed Nvidia binary drivers - version 384.11

Lutris
.Created 64bit wineprefix
.Installed (64-bit) 3.5-stagging wine version ( disabled CMST )
.Installed d3dx9_36, vcrun2008, corefonts, msxml3, wininet. ( Couldn't install ie7 in 64bit prefix )
.d3d11 and dxgi add to winecfg ( dll library ) and set to native
.added dxvk 64bit dlls to wineprefix I created earlier -> driver C -> windows -> system32 and replace them with old ones

So, after the installation of World of Tanks ends and virtual desktop closes, I change the executable from WoT_installer to WoT_Launcher.exe that is placed in my 64bit wineprefix.

So after all of this I decided to run my WoT_Launcher with wine3.5-stagging but from terminal so I can get some feedback on what's going on. The error is:

0009:err:module:load_builtin_dll failed to load .so lib for builtin L"WLDAP32.dll": libldap_r-2.4.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 0009:err:module:import_dll Loading library WLDAP32.dll (which is needed by L"Z:home komaGamesWorld_of_Tanksdrive_cGamesWorld_of_TanksWoTLauncher.exe") failed (error c000007a). 0009:err:module:attach_dlls Importing dlls for L"Z:home komaGamesWorld_of_Tanksdrive_cGamesWorld_of_TanksWoTLauncher.exe" failed, status c0000135

Anyone can help me with this ?

UE3-based sequel Outlast 2 too complex to port - here's hoping for a UE4 upgrade for their future games!

They're citing the increased complexity of their UE3-based sequel as well as an issue with getting whomever ported the first one to do this one. I hope the porter comes back eventually, and that Outlast 3, if there is one, will be using UE4 for easy porting!

If you're interested in the game (or in porting it) feel free to email them at support@redbarrelsgames.com

Hello,

Thank you for the interest, we have no plan of porting Outlast II to linux as of now, the first one was a pretty straightforward Unreal 3 Engine port, but we changed a lot in the second one. Also the original game was ported by people outside of Red Barrels and we do not have enough know-how to easily port it.

AMD R9 390 artifacts when playing games

I'm experiencing screen artifacts when playing games. I don't experience artifacts when i'm on the desktop.

I also have a 144hz screen. The artifacts become more common with 144hz than 60hz.

The driver in use is the open source radeon driver. I tried also with the original ubuntu 17.10 kernel, 4.15 and now 4.16 but i still have this issue :(

I don't have artifacts when playing on Windows. This is the only thing keeping me from switching 100% to Linux :(((

Last update broke compatibility with ALL of my games

all of my games either flat don't do ANYthing or if i'm lucky a error or crash but, they fail to even try to launch. the only game i got working was Ultimate Doom. it seems like any game that uses the video card no longer works.

i've never seen such a regression before and there are no new available drives from the ubuntu PPA from nvidia.

i'm on 3.5 staging with prop drivers. did the temporary PPA required to make staggin work conflict with the old PPA or something?

Total War Attila freezes on splash screen with Padoka (Works with vanilla Ubuntu)

Total War Attila freezes on splash screen with Padoka (Works with vanilla Ubuntu)

Annoyingly the game seems to work when it doesn't have the focus, so I can get to the title screen and watch the animation there. As soon as it gets the focus again it freezes again.

System: Ubuntu 18.04, Padoka Stable, i7 4770, R9 290

Any ideas what I can do other than removing the newer drivers provided by the Padoka PPA? Anyone else seeing this problem or just me?

Xbox Controller no longer recognised after recent system update

My Xbox controller has worked with Wine out of the box for many months now, perhaps as much as a year. (Before that, I was using xboxdrv and overriding xinput1_3 in winecfg.)

However following a recent update, it is no longer recognised in many of my Wine games. It still works fine in native games, and also in Skyrim. It is also recognised perfectly in the Wine control panel.

My first assumption was it was the Wine 3.5 release, however when I try the games in 3.4 via PoL, the gamepad is still not recognised.

So there must be some other package which was updated that has interfered with Wine getting access to it. Unfortunately, over 90 packages were updated including the Linux kernel.

At the moment all I can think of to track down the cause of this is to downgrade each of the updated packages one at a time until the controller is recognised again. This could take quite a long time, especially if I have to rollback the kernel.

Has anyone else noticed their controller stop working in Wine? Does anyone have any suggestion of how I could track down the culprit, or possible candidates for the package that might be the cause?

Many thanks.

Ubuntu + AMD mesa 18: steam link colors messed up

Hi, After upgrade to Mesa 18.0.0 - padoka PPA my life is ruined :(

Steam now looks like this:

Wine Questions

Hi, can I have both 32 and 64 bit wine installed at the same time?

I've heard that wine needs 32 bit gpu drivers and libraries, can I have both 32 bit and 64 bit installed? Won't this cause problems because of having both 32 and 64 bit versions installed of the gpu drivers?

SHIFT + 2 in Minecraft won't switch to slot

Hi, I have a problem I'm not sure has been brought up before:

I just downloaded Minecraft on my new Linux System. Everything works great with the exception of a minor issue. If I'm holding shift and I press 2, it will not switch to that slot. Every other item in my hotbar works exactly like it should, just the 2 key. I remapped it to see if it did anything, that works, but SHIFT + 2 does not.

Additional information: I am using Linux Mint, on Cinnamon, which means I'm using GMOME.

Any luck with Titanfall 2?

I was going through the fixes for the new 3.5 release and noticed this:

43518  Titanfall2 needs bcrypt.dll.BCryptExportKey 
(OpaqueKeyBlob format)

I was wondering if that meant that either Titanfall2 support is being worked on or if someone got it to work. I installed Origin and TF2 on a 3.5-staging-pba-git version but couldn't get the game to launch. Should I try using DXVK?

Thanks!

Fortnite works with wine 3.5 ??

I have seen a new version of wine with some new features:

"There are new patches to Wine-Staging 3.5 to support Implicit MTA, stubbing out some more functions that are needed for the BattlEye game anti-cheat software, adding in a function needed to make Rise of the Tomb Raider happy, fixed 1D texture support, and other fixes and code additions. "

Does this mean that It will be possible to play Fortnite with linux?

I have tried severals ways to run this game, but nothing is working:

There doesn't really appear to be a resource/wiki about game development for Linux. Shouldn't there be one?.

gamingonlinux.com has a list of engines but that's about it. I'd like there to be some public resource we can point towards when developers have questions or concerns, particularly "porting quickstarts" for people already using a common engine. "Running on Unity? Here's how to generate Linux binaries, and here are common gotchas that might come up and how to deal with them" etc.

Should we just edit the gamingonlinux wiki or start something new? What do people think?

Yet another Overwatch DXVK post

I'm kind of stumped with getting Overwatch to run using DXVK. I know that if I can't figure it out, I probably shouldn't be doing it, But we don't learn unless we try...

I've grabbed Wine staging 3.5 via Lutris and set overwatch to use it, I've also dropped the two x86 dlls files into the launching folder and set them both to native using wine config. I can get battle.net to launch fine, but it just freezes when I attempt to launch Overwatch. I've also tried manually launching the game using Wine, gets to the login screen and then crashes. I'm using Arch, so wondering whether there is something I have overlooked installing. Any help would be much appreciated!

Color settings Dell S2716DGR A08 on Nvidia Control Panel?

I was wanting to calibrate the colors on my Dell S2716DGR A08. However, all the info that I have found pertains to the Windows version of the NVCP settings, which I have set on my Windows drive.

The Linux NVCP is quite a bit different and I'm not exactly sure how to calibrate the colors correctly or what settings to use. Does anyone have this monitor with Linux and has set the colors correctly?

I am using Manjaro KDE with the latest updates if that info is needed.

Warframe crashes on start on wine-staging 3.5?

Hello,

I have seen a few mentions of this problem on various webpages, bu no real information about it: on wine-staging 3.4, warframe started and I could play (it crashed after about 5 minutes but still started); however with 3.5 staging it crashes from launch, with not much info about why:

2.733 Error [Info]: Assertion Failure

Does anybody have any hint/info? Thanks!

How do I run Overwatch with DXVK, Wine 3.5 and Bumblebee on an NVIDIA Optimus laptop?

I've got Bumblebee and the proprietary NVIDIA driver (version 390.48) set up properly. All I have to do is run programs with either optirun or primusrun (depending on the program) to use my NVIDIA GTX 960m GPU.

I'm using Wine Staging 3.5 configured as Windows 10. I've managed to get DXVK setup by using this package from openSUSE's OBS (I use Tumbleweed) and then running winedxvk64 and winedxvk32 in my Wine prefix (WINEPREFIX=~/Games/other-wine/dxvk/). Overwatch and Battle.net installed easily. If DXVK was not setup properly, then Battle.net would have crashed during installation, saying it couldn't locate d3d11.dll and dxgi.dll.

The only problem is that whenever I try to run primusrun wine Overwatch.exe, I get a message saying this:

No compatible graphics hardware was found.

(0xE0070160)

After searching around, it seems the people who get this message the most are using Intel GPUs, which makes sense. However, I'm using a laptop that can switch from an Intel GPU to an NVIDIA GPU on demand. I have a theory that the game somehow thinks it's using Intel or some unknown GPU even though it's being run through my NVIDIA GPU.

I need to find a way to verify and solve that problem. Maybe I need to configure something? Maybe I can trick the game into thinking I'm using a GTX 960m somehow?

Install SteamOS on a blank partition?

I cannot seem to find a standard usb install media (such as a iso) to go about installing SteamOS on another partition of my hdd. I have seen the legacy iso, but I have uefi setup and would like to use a uefi installation method without wiping any OSes I already have. Is what I want to do not possible?

How feasible is linux gaming, now?

Is linux gaming good enough to make the switch now, or not? I don't mind having to do minor configurations with every game.

I have some humble bundle keys gathering dust, giving them away! [Linux games]

Just realized my humble bundle account has some game keys lying around, and I already have the games, so...

These are the games (all of them have Linux support, of course):

  • A Virus Named Tom
  • AI War: Fleet Command
  • Monster Loves You
  • Q.U.B.E: Director's Cut
  • Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball
  • Rocket Birds: Hardboiled Chicken
  • ROCKETSROCKETSROCKETS
  • Screencheat
  • Sid Meier's Civilization IV: The Complete Edition
  • Spirits
  • Super Hexagon
  • The Swapper
  • Waking Mars
  • World of Goo

Rules:

  • user account must be at least 1 month old
  • one key per user
  • must play on Linux :P

Ask for the game here and I'll send the humble bundle gift link by PM!

Have fun! I personally like Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball, Screencheat and Super Hexagon :)

Can't promise to send the key very fast, I'm not a bot :P just wait a couple of minutes/hours and I'll definitely send it to you (if nobody asked for it first)

PS: posting only here at /r/linux_gaming because I know they will be played in the master race OS :D

Status of wine-pba with AMD on mesa

Can anyone explain the current status for this project with open source AMD drivers? There seems to be a problem with ARB_buffer_storage on mesa so this project doesn't do much on AMD. Is this still true?

Wine-Staging PPA?

Hi,

I used to run Wine-Staging, before it went away. I then switched to Wine 3.0.

Wine-Staging has been resumed in the meantime and going strong - but apparently I can't find a Debian/Ubuntu repository that hosts it.

Does one exist?

Donate / Support Vulkan?

Hi! I want to contribute to Linux gaming since I am pretty disappointed that Windows is the only "viable*" gaming OS, mostly because of DirectX, so I would like to donate / contribute (I work full time at 2 jobs, don't link me to any development stuff, I don't have such time :P ), but there don't seem to be any donate buttons on Kronos Group's website (I assume its past that stage and their associations with companies supplies them with the founds). Is there a relevant way to support Vulkan / cross-platform graphics API, since I really believe this is the best way to make Linux gaming grow and, in my personnal little utopia, overthrow DirectX

Thank!

Alex

Gungeon on linux

It looks like it would work nearly as well as it does on windows -- for clarification this is the linux version on linux steam -- however, i have noticed pushing both left click and right click results in nothing happening whereas on windows before i switched doing that would usually result in firing + dodge roll or atleast do something, the way it is now it just causes my character to not do either and it ruins the port for me, any way i can fix this? Maybe switch to the windows version?
