Really bad experience with F1 2019

Hi, after switching full time with Linux (pop os) I wanted to play some games. Gta V, Minecraft and rocket league run perfectly (gta v is a bit stutter but hey, at least it runs). I wanted to play battlefield 1 but its a no go. So I decided to play f1 2019. So the game boots on dx11 but on dx12 is a black screen. After that I get really low FPS, like 10 or less. I tried various version of proton (experimental, 5.13 and the new Proton GE) but I still get a laggy experience. Has anyone else had this issue? I7 7700 Gtx 780

Proton games crashing when losing focus.

Title. I'm running Arch on intel with integrated graphics. My window manager is dwm. I've tested with multiple games, muliple proton versions, multiple kernel versions, with/without picom running, and with/without xf86-video-intel but no matter what I do, if the game loses focus, it will turn black, go silent, and need to be exited. It's doing this on games like cuphead which are supposed to be officially supported on proton and have no reports of this problem on protondb. I'm not sure what exactly about my configuration could be causing this. My window manager, dwm, has a patch I installed after encountering this problem that fixes some floating window problems specific to steam, but it didn't fix this.

From just my neofetch output, I'm running kernel 5.10.8-arch1-1, a resolution of 1920x1080, an i5-8250U, and Intel UHD Graphics 620. I'm not sure what other logs would be helpful, just ask and I'll provide them.

Blops 3, AC Valhalla/Odyssey, and Halo MCC

I've been trying to make the full-time switch to a Linux only machine for awhile now but those games have been preventing me from making the switch permanent, currently I'm running a dual boot between Mint and W10

Are there ways of getting these games in particular to run using Proton, Lutris, Wine, Looking glass, or a VM with pci passthrough?? If not should I just keep my dual boot and just do all my gaming on windows??

[WarThunder] [gamemode] Getting Gaijin to add Gamemode integration to WarThunder

I made a thread on the WarThunder suggestion forum for Gaijin to add WarThunder integration
https://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/513215-linux-gamemode-integration/

If you do not know what gamemode is, it is a computer optimizer that is bundled into some Linux distros that increase performance for games by optimizing stuff from CPU governors to IO scheduling for the game to have the best performance.

I placed benchmarks for my devices, I'm hoping others can benchmark in a similar way to hopefully get it added to WarThunder

I'm trying to play Pokemon Uranium on Arch Linux with wine-staging but I keep getting the error "Failed to initialize DirectX Audio" on start. I'm using the 32-bit prefix, installed all AMD's 32-bit graphics drivers, and installed some DirectX components through winetricks.

Installing Everspace 2 with steam's proton on Linux for GOG owners

Hi there pilots! I thought I'd share the instructions for installing the game from GOG and using it with Steam and the proton wrapper for wine. (This is a xpost to EverspaceGame subreddit)

PS: I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and have had no issues.

  • Download all seven installation files from GOG.Make sure all the executables are stored in the same directory.
  • In Steam menus: "Games" -> "Add non-steam game".
  • Select "All files" in the "File fype" drop-down, and find the first everspace 2 install file from gog.As of writing this is "setup_everspacetm_2_0.4.16214_(64bit)_(44266).exe"
  • "ADD SELECTED PROGRAMS"
  • Find the entry created, which should share the name of the executable.
  • Right click it and in properties, enable compatibility, and use the latest proton version (5.13-5).
  • Hit the big green "Play", which should start the installer for the game.NB: When done hit "Exit". I don't know if the option to play the game directly in the installer works, and even if it does, you still might want to be able to run the game at a later point, so we need to make some more changes.

This should have installed the game into the built-in WINE-based file system that steam/proton has created for this particular installation.

The next step could be described and followed blindly, but better to know how to fish. In fact, I insist. I'll assume you know rudimentary commands look around and change directories.

In a terminal, go to your steamapps directory (probably ~/.steam/steam/steampps)

In the "compatdata" folder, there is a digits-only directory for each steam game you've installed in this way. You might only have one, or there might be several. The numbered folders are game ids.

Since we started out by adding a setup file, running the game again will just trigger this setup file, but in the same wine context we installed the game into. We probably want to play the game instead, and to do that we need to specify which executable to use to run the game.

So let's search for paths that contain the word "everspace".

find . | grep -i everspace | grep exe

In my case, I find a bunch of files, but in particular "Everspace2.exe" and "Everspace2_GOG.exe" look promising. I didn't know this ahead of time, but looking through the list of executables, that one looked good.

Make a note of the path to this file.

  • Right click the game entry again, and give it a nicer name, like "Everspace 2".
  • Click the "Browse..." button and find the location from earlier. In my case this was
    ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/4234811412/pfx/drive_c/GOG Games/EVERSPACE 2/Everspace2.exe
    But you shouldn't rely on it.
  • Under "LAUNCH OPTIONS", typically what you want to do is find your game in the protondb website (https://www.protondb.com/app/1128920) and see if there are any suggested launch options that solves issues.
  • Play the game!
  • Bonus: Click the square to the left of where you set the title and find an image to use. Find one of your own, or use image-magic to convert the icon from the installation.
    • Install imagemagick: sudo apt install imagemagick
    • Find possible icons (from compatdata earlier): find . | grep -i everspace | grep ico
    • Convert the icon to a png that steam accepts, in my case:convert './4234811412/pfx/drive_c/GOG Games/EVERSPACE 2/goggame-1205406003.ico' /tmp/everspace2.png
    • This creates several files of different sizes named everspace2-*.png.
    • Copy the one you want to use and put it somewhere that isn't /tmp, as this content will be deleted next time you log in. I chose the largest everspace2-6.png, and put it in the install dir.cp /tmp/everspace2-6.png './4234811412/pfx/drive_c/GOG Games/EVERSPACE 2/everspace_icon.png'
    • And use this in the thumbnail selection for the game entry in steam.

Viewsonic Elite XG270QG G-sync monitor - unable to activate after fresh install

Hi,

I recently did fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04 on my SSD. My intention is to use it only for Xplane 11. All went well. But then I realised that the G-sync is not activated. I checked in Nvidia settings and it says two things:

- G-sync monitor is unvalidated

- G-sync is not active

I was able to turn of compositor and then it was showing tha G-sync is active, but still with "G-sync monitor is unvalidated"

It seems to my like it cant recognize that my monitor is full G-sync. It is not G-sync compatible but full G-sync. I was using this monitor in X-plane 11 for last year in Win10 and there is G-sync working perfectly.

Also, I realised that when I turn of compositor It was able to tell me that G-sync is "sort of" active but only with 60Hz frequency. At that moment I could find field "activate G-sync/G-sync compatible display" in Nvidia settings. Once I changed the frequency of the monitor to more than 60hz (in my case 85hz or 100hz) this choice "activate G-sync/G-sync compatible display" completely dissapered from Nvidia settings.

- I have installed newest Nvidia for Linux, version 460

Pardon me, but I have not big experience with Linux. I can manage instalation, settings, some basic staff, but I am unfamiliar with such a troubleshooting. What I know that Linux is giving me higher stability while using the simulator and it also give me a significant perfomance increase, in my case 15percent ( around 16 fps more). I just dont see the G-sync working at all, because the screen tearing is present all the time, even is it says that G-sync is active, but still unvalidated.

Thank you for help/advice

How to Play Epic Games on Linux - Heroic Games Launcher Legendary GUI

Hi guys, with the first stable release of Heroic Games Launcher, I thought I would create a quick video covering the installation process and using the tool.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJjdi0AsrFg&feature=youtu.be

As always, you can see the written instructions below.

Installation Requirements - Wine, Wine Tricks & DXVK

Install both Wine and Wine Tricks using your distribution's package manager.

For example, for Ubuntu based distributions, use the following Terminal command:

sudo apt install wine winetricks  

https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk

Download the latest version from the releases pages, extract it and open a Terminal window in folder with the installation script.

Then run the following command referencing your default Wine prefix location, which for me is "home/ryan/.wine"

export WINEPREFIX=/home/ryanj/.wine  

Then run the installation DXVK script.

./setup_dxvk.sh install   

Installing And Running Heroic

https://github.com/flavioislima/HeroicGamesLauncher

Navigate to the Releases page, download the installation package that is relevant to your system, install it, and launch Heroic.

First, you need to associate your Epic Account with Heroic, so click on the link, copy and paste the SID information, and login.

You should now be presented with your game library, so to install a game, click on the artwork, click the Install button, optionally specifying an installation location.

The default is your Home directory, but either way, once the process is complete, launch the game.

Using Difference Version of Wine / Proton

Heroic will allow you to run a game using a different version of Wine or even with custom version of Proton such as Proton-GE.

To do that, click on the Settings tab, and choose what compatibility tool you wish to use from the drop-down menu.

You can also specify launch options here as well.

All credit goes to u/flavioislima for this brilliant tool.

But as always, if you found this helpful, check out my channel for more Linux tutorials aimed at new users, and subscribe if you like what you see.

Thanks

Ryan

Why is the main language of proton c++ and of wine C, i thought that proton is pretty close to wine, with only some fixes here and there.

title. Proton has to be close to upstream in order to use the wine updates, like 6.0, right? Why is it then reprogrammed in another programming language?

AMD RX 6800 XT driver question.

I've got a 6800 XT on the way, and though I've been using linux for ages by now I've never used it with a Radeon-card before (which is not entirely true, in my first foray into linux I got burned horribly by a radeon-card that just didn't work).

So, a couple of questions:

- Which driver do I use? I see stuff like AMDGPU-PRO, AMDVLK, mesa and AMDGPU-open. Which one would I want to use for performance?

- What would be best practice when transitioning from an Nvidia-card to this card without trashing the system and needing a reinstall? I don't suppose it'll "just work" if I change the card and boot the machine without some driver uninstalling/installing.

On Manjaro XFCE btw.

What happened to lutris?

I miss the old game importing. It just worked. Whatever this is now doesn't work at all. All my steam games show under the steam tab now but lutris is unable to see what is installed or what is not. I can click install on some of the games and lutris will realize its already installed and add it to games tab, other games under the steam tab i try to install lutris will try to have me install the wine steam version. Pressing the sync button does absolutely nothing. This lutris feels like a downgrade.

CES 2021 Ryzen 5000 + RTX 30 series laptops

I'm in the market for a new gaming laptop (previously had a Razer), with a spend somewhere around $2,500. Amongst the hot items @ CES this year, which do you suppose will have the best Linux support? FWIW, I tend to bounce around distros with fairly quick package/kernel updates.

The Razer was okay... no thanks to the company, but instead to the Open-Razer project & the Razer Linux Discord server. Not that interested in them this time around since they're stuck on 10th gen Intel still. I think the ASUS G15 looks appealing, but I don't really know how well the current model is supported running Linux. The asus-nb-ctrl repo looks interesting...

If you were looking to buy a Linux gaming laptop this year, what would it be?

Why can't you use programs like mangohud globally for OpenGL games?

I talked with the flightlessmango and he said that it's a kernel security problem,and that's the reason it doesn't work.

But what is a security problem with that?

I don't get it.

And is there really no way to use Mangohud globally for OpenGL games (or any other system load hud program)?

Cause if there's one thing I hate,then it's adding games to launchers just to use Mangohud.

[AMD Ryzen] tip: using cpuset to potentially improve your gaming experience

Hello!

I come back to you guys to tell you about something "new" I have been fiddling around for a while, related to the peculiarity of AMD Ryzen's cache topology (I have no idea how intel's are and if what I am about to talk about applies to it).

As you may know, AMD Ryzen have this "chiplet" approach to cores, where cores are organized in "islands" of 8 cores, called CCDs. In zen/zen+/zen2, each CCD has two groups of 4 cores, called CCX, that have a shared L3 cache. L1, L2 cache, as far as I know, is always specific to each core.

The interesting idea I had is: what if I give an entire CCX to Overwatch, and redirect every other process to other CCX (I have a 3700X), wouldn't that make my game go faster ? I expected that to reduce the amount of cache misses since basically 16MB of L3 cache is reserved to Overwatch and friends (Wine, DXVK, Kernel). I didn't do a good benchmark on this, but out of own feel, it's slightly better. But the amazing thing with this is that my game is unaffected by what is happening in the other CCX: be it a heavy compilation or streaming with a software encoder like x264.

I finally wrote about it on my little github repo (about stuff related to linux gaming), for those who are interested. With scripts that work for the 3700X and lutris in particular, they can be adapted to whatever Ryzen you have if you read a few docs. If it's super interesting I may write a more complete redirection script for everyone to use, a la "gamemode".

If some of you have the strength to benchmark this, you are welcome to share your findings!

See ya for some other Linux fiddling

LFG similar to Destiny 2's Rumble PVP that's Linux native.

My friends and family are really liking Rumble PVP mode in Destiny 2 on Stadia. We are looking for a Linux native game similar to it in which we can host our own server. Retail or freeware does not mater so long as we can self host to just play with our ppl.

Rumble in D2 is good we often get the first match together when we sign on after that first match the game seperates us and we hardly find ourselves in the same match.

We are use to running our own servers for games like Doom (1993), Quake, UT99, UT2K4 and Solider of Fortune.

We are looking for something similar to what Rumble offers:

  • Our own personal load out
  • Play in 3rd person for those that want to
  • FFA gameplay and maps

Right now the only thing we can think of was the early days of Savage when some servers were just DM fest. Currently, my brother, some of my kids are downloading it now to see if it's a match for what want.

WoW Classic - intermittent freezes

I've been playing WoW Classic on Linux for a while with no issues, however recently I started to get intermittent freezes lasting 3-4 seconds every minute or so. The game runs at 120 fps locked in 4K resolution aside from these intermittent freezes. Other games like Witcher 3, Horizon Zero Dawn, RDR2 and Cyberpunk 2077 do not exhibit this issue (though CP2077 has some other issues with flickering textures). When the freeze happens, the rest of the system is still responsive; I can use Firefox to play videos for instance. I monitored the GPU clocks with radeontop during the freezes, and it seems like GPU utilization is 0% and clocks go down to idle clocks during the freeze.

I am running Debian Testing (bullseye) with Mesa 20.3.2, 5.10.4 kernel and Gnome 3.38. The issue occurs both on Wayland and Xorg. Wine version is 6.0 installed from WineHQ, although I tried different versions as well and they have this issue too. DXVK version is 1.7.1, the latest version downloaded by Lutris, though I also tried different DXVK versions. Interestingly, it also happens if I disable DXVK, but much less commonly.

Journalctl, dmesg or the Lutris logs do not display any errors.

My hardware is as follows:

-CPU: Ryzen 5900X

-GPU: Radeon 6900XT

-RAM: Crucial Ballistix 32 GB 3600MHz CL16, OC'd to 3733MHz, running with 1:1:1 FCLK:UCLK:MCLK

-Motherboard: MSI x570 Tomahawk

I have fairly cutting edge hardware, which I guess is the source of the issues. Did anyone else run into the same problem? I saw this post in Manjaro forums describing the same issue but there is no solution presented https://forum.manjaro.org/t/world-of-warcraft-occasional-freezes/25328

CS 1.6 latency and overall frustration

Hi! I'm big fan of CS 1.6 and this game is unplayable with how it currently runs on my Lenovo Y50-70. I got Intel and Nvidia. I added prime-run %command% in Steam launch options and now it's smooth at least. But huge problem is latency. I can't get it lower than 40. I'm not a pro player but I'm pretty good but on Linux I suck. It's so hard to play as I'm sure I see enemy later than it actually appears. My reaction most likely is delayed. It's so frustrating as I feel like i must be very lucky to even get a kill during a round but I play game since 2002 and I'm not a noob by any means. I have tried some common settings like cl_cmdrate 101 cl_updaterate 101 ex_interp .01 rate 99999 but i don't notice any difference. Maybe on linux there are other options? I use manjaro xfce. Also I noticed CL error red colored text on right upper corner during 15 vs 15 users. I hope someone can help. I also tried *.exe versions with wine and latency is down to 10 and seems like I can get more kills but it just wasn't running smooth which is so ridiculous.. I mean this is an old game and my computer should run this effortlessly. Dunno..

Anybody got London Racer: World Challenge working?

Hi there,

I just found an old copy of this game called "London Racer World Challenge" (mediocre game from 2003). I was wondering, did anyone get it working? And if so, how?

It'd just be funny if I can get it to run is all.

Thanks!!

Social Club ingame menu - cursor missing

Hello,

I am amazed how many games work on Linux. But I have one issue with R* games. RDR2 Online and GTA V online. If I open ingame Social Club Overlay (to join friend/add friend etc) for the first time I have cursor visible, second time UI elements are highlighted but no cursor. That a problematic, like a lot. As I have to guess x,y coordinates of my mouse and hope I am not wrong when trying to click. That quite annoing.

This bug is in Lutris and Proton, it persist even with Steam as X session. So it has nothing to do with display manager, nor wine version as I tried multiple version from 4 to 6 and even proton version also GE proton. And nor the games - it exist in GTA V and RDR 2.

I wonder if someone here was able to fix this. As the ingame SC menu is basicaly unusable.

Your gamer friends that use Windows

This is going to sound probably odd, but I switched to Linux because I like the environment, that I can make it my own, the ease of the terminal and the ability to still play a lot of my games. I'd say 90% of my friends are Windows gamers which I have no problem with. Alot of the play DRM games which we know is not really feasible for now on Linux (crossed fingers for 5.11 and beyond).

Does this bother you that you cannot team up in these games? I'm kind of looking to make some Linux gamer friends as well, I know that sounds a little sad but why not both share an interest in Linux and help when we hit a wall with something not running.

I know I could dual boot but I'd rather not, just curious how you have found the transition to Linux, how your windows friends react to it and whether or not its created an obstacle?

Hello, is there a way to make wine not print everything in the terminal when running a program? Like quiet or silent?

Using mod organizer 2, the terminal is printing text constantly in the terminal even when not actively using it and slowly and constantly increases CPU load. How can I make it run as a background process or not print anything? I can't find anything in the wine documentation

A nVidia Linux OS does NOT include MESA! Ever! True or False?

http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/460.32.03/README/index.html

"Mesa is a dependency to a LOT of other softwares "???

Like what?

OpenCL Open-Source Compute support NVIDIA Tegra embedded graphics? Which use OpenSource NOUVEAU?

No its not.

We're talking about the correct installation of the nVidia Proprietory Blob and its verified benched performance.

The only way nVidia is installed correctly is by Setting the correct UEFI BIOS Protocols: NoSecBootEver, NoCSM_Ever,DMA BuFF, IOMMU, PCI-e_64bitBAR, memaper if needed, increase paging cache if on 460.32?, echi/xhci, PAT, hPAT, NUMA? and others

Blacklisting Nouveau, Setting DRM, Resolution / DPI in Xorg.conf, X11.conf, GRUB, DM, DE and others as an example.

Install, config.and run ACPI, Sensors support, edid,fwup, check your pci-ids are correct and others things.

Install supporting nVidia libs, System libs. Codecs, libsdl2 and other things

Stop Apparmor. Check apparmor parsing logs after nVidia install.

Someone said everything runs better without apparmor?

Then kill the Display head with " telint 3 '. Then purge ALL Video drivers, Accel, libs and obsolete package configs. Purge it all everything. Dead head allows to purge cleanly. Then install nVidia as root not sudo with all-recommends. Then finish configuring.

When purging mesa: If your getting mesa specific dependency issues when purging mesa and the Head is Dead then your nVidia Driver is installed INCORRECTLY. And if its working it will be using frankenlibs. If it works at all.

Nvidia GeForce drivers and Catalyst Proprietary Graphics Drivers REPLACE ALL OF MESA. VDPAU is implemented in X11 software device drivers... but relies on acceleration features in the hardware GPU. The nVidia Prop. "Driver" uses VDPAU / NVDECODE / NVENCODE /NVIDIA-UTILS (Name/Package Varies w/ Distro) for Hardware video acceleration / compute API.

note: Dont install NVIDIA-UTILS because you read it here it might be packaged as Vulkan-Utils or something else in you Distro. Installing Ubuntu Main Repo "nvidia-utils" and Graphics PPA "Vulkan-utils" might cause poor performance or worse.

Mesa, also called Mesa3D and The Mesa 3D Graphics Library. MESA is an open source software implementation of OpenGL, Vulkan, and other graphics API specifications. Mesa translates these specifications to vendor-specific graphics hardware drivers. AMD and INTEL are the main Vendors that fund the Mesa Project.

IF YOU HAVE SOME GL APPS CRASHING ON NVIDIA?

If your X11 starts, but OpenGL applications crash. You likely have a problem with other libraries in the way, or there are stale symlinks. Sometimes all it takes is rerunning "ldconfig"

NOTE!:"ldconfig" might create the wrong symlinks.

You'll need to check if the GLX and NV-GLX extensions are there? If theyre NOT its most likely a problem loading the glx module, or its not able implicitly load GLcore. You should check your X config file and make sure that you are actually loading glx. If your X config file is correct, Check the X log file for warnings/errors related to GLX. You'll also need to check that all of the necessary symlinks are in place.

IF YOU HAVE POOR PERFORMACE OR CRASHING?

If nVidia Vulkan fails with ". libGL error: failed to load driver:"? Maybe launching STEAM?

Its not uncommon for this ERROR to occur after an update.

If the GLX client library is ANYTHING other than GLVND libGL.so.1? then you'll need to either remove the library that is blocking/ conflicting. Or adjust the Dynamic Loader Search Path using the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

Rememdber "ldconfig" may create the wrong symlinks.

Check If there are other libraries whose "soname" conflicts with the NVIDIA libraries. MESA BREAKS NVIDIA An example of a library that often creates conflicts is "/usr/lib/mesa/libGL.so*

(Option 1.) Your going to need to purge the uneeded conflicting MESA packages and ALL nVidia packages and configs.. Then reinstall the nvidia driver with i386 support to reinstall the nVidia Libs. " sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386" .

Option 2. If you absolutely need that conflicting Mesa .Lib? Then youll need to create an alternate simlink solution. google it.

NVIDIA: VULKAN ERROR "Nvidia_-_vulkan_is_not_working_and_can_not_initialize" error

If Vulkan is not working and can not initialize??? Check if you have any other Vulkan driver installed? It will most likely prevent Nvidia's Vulkan Driver from being detected. Purge conflicting Mesa and or Vulkan versions. This can also include wrong versions of Vulkan-tools

Worth it?

I'm a software dev and mainly a linux user: I use it for anything but adobe and gaming stuff, for which I use Windows against my will.

So, it is worthwhile to try and set up all my steam games and adobe utils in linux (say ubuntu or any other debian based distro)? I use Windows for these purposes the same reason I use ubuntu for anything else: I like plug and play and finding and installing stuff quickly. Furthermore, I would appreciate if someone can point out details about stability and performance specially in games (pubg, battlefront, total war... To name a few).

Thanks!

Is there any way to run Steam windows games without proton?

I have an older computer, and can't really upgrade right now, I have a bunch of games on my Steam Windows account, but proton completely refuses to even try to run them because my card is not compatible.

Yet I can play Linux games which require 3d acceleration fine (not great, but they run).

Has anyone run into this problem before and know what to do?

Skyrim SE on Linux - is it possible to use the 'Download with manager' on nexus with mod organizer 2?

I've got Skyrim running and MO2 installed in the same prefix so it knows where everything is. The final step is if it is feasible to use the download with manager option on the nexus site. This seems complicated as the browser in linux will not interact with a wine prefix. Maybe installing a windows native browser in the same prefix will work?

Random Crashes with Proton

I have problem where games through Proton crash at random times. The video freezes but I can hear sound. I alt+tab and have to kill game. I can play native Linux games for long time fine, but Proton game like AC: Odyssey I can play usually for few hours and it maybe will/won't crash and Rocket League crashes even more.

Info:

Arch, nvidia drivers 460.32.03-1 (same problem with 455 and 450, ...)

Proton 5.13 and Experimental both same issue

I got error log once but haven't again, I remember issue seemed to be "VK error device lost" in Proton log before crashes

Playstation 5 Controller is unreliable for someone else?

I got the Playstation 5 Controller running Manjaro with Kernel 5.10.8-1 (tried stable Kernel aswell; no difference) and the HID-Playstation module. The Controller is working fine in ever test environment. Evtest working, wine control joy.cpl working, works in Steam Big Picture mode, but it is not getting picked up in games 99% of the time. I tried several games like Control or Hades. I start the game but the controller does not register and does not work. I close the game, start again, close, start, ... and for some reason it might work one time. Closing the game and starting again will unlikely have the controller work a second time. I do not understand what the problem might be or what I can do. Anyone else using the PS5 controller and has some knowledge about how to have it work consistently? Any help would be great. Thanks!

Help me decide if linux or not

I'm building at the moment my pc and I wanted to use Linux for the first time since I really hate windows. But I've read a bit about it and essentially, linux is better for everything but gaming. Now that's a bit a problem since I only do game. I want to play dragon age, the witcher and of course skyrim with many mods. And hopefully also a few other games in the future lol

I just wanted to ask, is it really a nightmare? Or is doable for someone who never used linux before? I mean is it worth it? Since I've spend so much time just planning my build and fighting for parts, I guess I'm a bit tired and just want to finally enjoy a game again

Support Feedback| Age of Empires 2, Empire at war and other games not launching when using Proton 5.13-5 via Steam but works on Proton 5.0-10 on Manjaro Gnome Linux Wayland

Hi,

I thought I might start an discussion here to see who affected. I have a basic Intel driven Thinkpad T450s and noticed after the recent upgrade to Proton 5.13-5 on Steam that the games I normally play will just launch and then shut down before the game graphically launches.

The end result is I have used the Steam compatibility settings to use the Previous version of Proton 5.0-10 which works correctly.

System I play on:

inxi -b

System: Host: sol Kernel: 5.4.85-1-MANJARO x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: GNOME 3.38.2

Distro: Manjaro Linux

Machine: Type: Laptop System: LENOVO product: 20BXCTO1WW v: ThinkPad T450s

CPU: Info: Dual Core Intel Core i5-5300U [MT MCP] speed: 2295 MHz min/max: 500/2900 MHz

Graphics: Device-1: Intel HD Graphics 5500 driver: i915 v: kernel

Device-2: Lite-On Integrated Camera type: USB driver: uvcvideo

Display: wayland server: X.org 1.20.10 driver: intel

resolution:

OpenGL: renderer: Mesa Intel HD Graphics 5500 (BDW GT2) v: 4.6 Mesa 20.3.1

Games I play where I have used same approach in Steam:

(1) Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition

(2) Homeworld The Deserts of Karak

(3) Empire at War (with Thrawns Revenge and Fall of the Republic).

I did not post a Steam/Proton bug as I have been reading through historical bugs and not sure it will be looked at.

Do you have a compatible Vulkan installable client driver (ICD) installed?

Please look at the Getting Started guide for additional information.

Finally got Spore (With modAPI) Working With Wine

I'm using the gog version of Spore on an ext4 partition.

Took a lot of attempts, I might not be the first since I found this but from looking at the script (couldn't install) it doesn't seem to anything special, regular wine with the right dotnet can install SporeModAPI but installing .sporemod files or using the mod launcher won't work.

Mods I got working:

  • Dark Injection
  • Reshade (use this guide)
  • Cheap cell parts
  • Rehatched (shaders and textures/models)
  • 4gb exe patch (patched SporeApp.exe file using Windows, not really necessary)
  • Spore graphics fix - this is a manual install
  • sneky graphics

What I did:

First I used Lutris to download lutris-6.0-rc1 (5.7 should work too).

Then I ran the lutris executable on my 32bit prefix, try making a new prefix like this:

WINEPREFIX=/home/user/Games/lutris32/ env WINE=/home/user/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-6.0-rc1-x86_64/bin/wine WINEARCH="win32" winecfgThen install d3dcompiler:

WINEPREFIX=/home/user/Games/lutris32/ winetricks d3dcompiler_47

.net is a bit tricky, you can use this to get dotnet471:

export WINEPREFIX=/home/user/Games/lutris32wget 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/5/A/95A9616B-7A37-4AF6-BC36-D6EA96C8DAAE/dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe'

wget 'http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/E/6/9E63300C-0941-4B45-A0EC-0008F96DD480/NDP471-KB4033342-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe'

winecfg #set to Windows xp

wine dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe

winecfg #set to win7 and add mscoree override as native (in libraries)wine NDP471-KB4033342-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe

You should be able to install modAPILauncher now:

WINEPREFIX=/home/user/Games/lutris32/ env WINE=/home/user/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-6.0-rc1-x86_64/bin/wine wine Spore\ ModAPI\ Launcher\ Kit\ Setup\ 1-1-0-39.exe

Finally Install spore using lutris32 prefix, make sure it works (run from SporeBinEP1) and then try installing mods (run mod installer from ProgramFiles in prefix).

WINEPREFIX=/home/user/Games/lutris32/ env WINE=/home/user/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-6.0-rc1-x86_64/bin/wine wine SporeApp.exe #cd to SporeBinEP1

Add a new game in Lutris, set prefix and point exec to the ModAPI launcher (ProgramFiles in prefix)

If ModAPI asks to update select no.

I have done this twice now so this should be reproducible.

Bugs:

I did get the weird terrain generation bug with jagged terrain but after making Lutris launcher entry that went away (terrain got fixed). So something about default Lutris options must have fixed it.

Also another bug is where the game crashes when evolving from cell stage. The workaround is to run from SporeBin (regular spore) temporarily.

Other than these 2 issues the only other problem is an occasional lag spike, likely just my pc performance. For me this is still a better experience than running spore on Windows 10, I get lots of crashes/bugs on there.

In ModAPI installer you can move the window around if you are unable to select/open a file.

Failed Attempts:

I tried this with a clean 32bit prefix and dotnet471, modAPI did get installed, but I could only install .package files and the mod launcher wouldn't work either. Also while messing with wine/proton/proton ge I had other weird issues like not being able to run from SporeBinEP1 (galactic adventures). Can't remember all the details but I tried a lot of things and this is the only method where everything works.

Any tips/help to play Red Dead 2? I can't get past the Rockstar social club verification

Telling me to solve the puzzle to prove I'm real. But there is no puzzle, it's blank. There's an option for audio, but it won't play. There's an option to download the audio, which I have done, play it in a different app and then type in the numbers that it says. But after I type it in and click verify, nothing happens.

How do I start the game? Is there a way around verification?

DOTA2: mouse pointer vanishing/flickering during teamfights

I'm on fedora 32 with xorg and sometimes, mostly during teamfights, my mouse tend to disappear. I don't know if it could be caused by the amount of effects on screen or if it's due to my intel video chipset but I've already turned the effects to a minimum and still my pointer is kind of flickering.

Is there a setting which could help with this problem? I tried the vulcan render option in game, but I take a hit on my fps and I'd like to avoid it. Did anyone tried wayland on fedora 32?

Sandbox survival pvp games

Any suggestion on decent sandbox survival games that support linux (since rust is dead on linux), that has a similar play style to rust (fight, build base, buid farms, raid other people), what I've been bored of:

Ark survival evolved, crappy pvp, buggy as hell, unstable;

7 days to die, the obnoxious hitboxes and stiff character really bored me out;

don't starve/toghether, really nice but no creative constructions of machines and farming really bored me out;

terraria, awesome but I've played so much of it I can't even anymore;

minetest, meh, character too stiff and no way to mod it to have a fluid character movement as minecraft have, indeed nice , but meh;

Non linux native:

space engineers, bored me because of poor performances;

conan exiles, buggy as hell, poor performances;

rust, it really ticked me off how the linux community have been called toxic, by the most toxic game dev in gamedev history, I still love the game but I can't even anymore, love-hate relationship;

SCUM, poor performances, if you manage to get it to work, the best game for me so far, waiting for better performance;

Anyone has other games in this style that i have missed?

I've been playing the alpha of Valheim (seemingly developed on linux, the alpha version has been removed from itch), and waiting for a beta key, it feels and play really nice and it's really my type of environment and background story (viking survival, action pvp with parry and dodge, building, destructible environment, lots of exploration with dungeons and biomes, magic & alchemy, ships fights)

Stalker Call of Pripyat not working

So yesterday I bought the steam version of Stalker COP and for some reason, whenever I try to start a new game it just crashes with an error stating that my "video card doesn't meet the game's requirements". This is pretty weird considering that I have a GTX1050 and while it's a pretty bad GPU nowadays, it's certainly more than capable of handling a 2009 game.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Is 5500 xt worth here

In my country(India) Powercolor 5500 xt costs ~$264. While galax 1660 super costs ~$278. I have heard that amd drivers are better in linux, on the other hand I have heard 1660s is better bang for the buck. Keeping that in mind which one should I go for? Or should I wait for the rumoured 3050 series?

P.S. I would be using arch. The prices are from online sites. Offline prices may vary. hope I can find 5500xt for cheaper :P

I can't play KOTOR no matter what I try

No matter what I do KOTOR won't play after making a new character. The steam launcher opens the game starts and after I finish the character creation and click play the game fully loads the loading bar and crashes.

I have used the custom version people use in protondb https://www.protondb.com/app/32370 I have also "FullScreen=0" to play in windowed mode. I have used both OpenSource and proprietary AMD drivers. Tried changing the resolution and refresh rate. As well plenty other "fixes" I googled which I do not recall at the moment.

I have been trying to make this game run for at least 2 months and no luck.

Is there any hope?

WINE prefixes

Hello all,

I am running Pop_OS! 20.10 and have installed Steam and enabled Steam Play. I've done quite a bit of research regarding gaming's state on Linux and to my understanding Proton is a huge part of making that successful.

I decided to give Metro 2033 (non-Redux version) a try. Did not choose that title for any particular reason and have not tried to run any other titles. Doing nothing else (except enabling Proton logging so I can see what's happening), I get a log file basically saying that my GPU doesn't support Vulkan. Ok, fine. So then I add "PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1" to the launch options of the game. Now the log file indicates that my WINE prefix is 64-bit and the game is expecting a 32-bit one (indicator to me is "Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x00000000 in 32-bit code (0x007a003d)" with some additional platform information towards the end of the file showing that it's i386).

I saw Steam auto-install Proton 5.13-5 upon the first launch of the game. I see the pre-configured WINE prefix directory for the game under ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/compatdata//pfx. My question is, why am I encountering this bitness error if Steam itself configured this custom WINE prefix for this particular game?

The game does run if I let it run in "safe mode" (not really sure what that means).

If it matters, my interim GPU is an R9 270X.

Look forward to understanding this stuff more.

Thanks,
MP

Tested input on a few other applications and in-game comms with no problem. Only app having issue seems to be Discord. Any troubleshooting tips?

Already ran sudo apt remove discord, then deleted ~/.config/discord directory. Reinstalled with no luck. Same headset+mic combo works with discord on Windows partition.

I cant run games on vulkan no more? my gpu died?

Sooo weird, I don't even know what the problem is. So 2 days ago I was playing my steam games just fine. I shut the computer down, go to sleep than start it up later on the next day. I try to play a game I was playing the day before and it runs slow as fuck, running in opengl and freezes up like 10 seconds in. Wtf?

I try to play another game, same thing. They all open up in opengl and runs like shit. Feels like my GPU isn't being used. So okay... I try different proton versions, nothing. I check if I am missing drivers, nope. I try reinstalling vulkan, no avail. I reinstall kubuntu, still problems. I distro hop to linux mint, STILL problems. The OS recognizes my GPU, I watch streams, videos and there is no problem. I ran an opengl benchmark, it worked flawlessly.

What is going on? Because I have no clue... it's not the software right, as I've distro hopped and I still have problems. It has to be hardware? But I don't understand, my GPU is working afaik. Anyone have any good ideas on how I should approach this?

Heroic Game Launcher issues

So I installed the new version that came out today, but it did not fix my issue. I experienced the same thing on the previous version.

My problem:

When I try to launch the game 'Control,' I am able to get to the main menu. When I start the campaign, I get a black screen with audio in the background. Sometimes I can get part of the opening cutscene to play after a few seconds, and sometimes I just get a black screen. But it always crashes before I can get to the actual gameplay. Skipping the cutscene crashes the game.

I tried both lutris-6.0-rc1-x86_64 and Wine default.

I have a RTX 2060 SUPER and am using the 460 driver on Ubuntu 20.10.

Maybe /u/flaviofearn can offer some help, but anyone can chime in.

What should I do at the beginning, or does playing on linux worth it?

Hi

So I just bought an old gaming laptop "2016 it was gaming, but now..." and I used to use linux ( zorin light ) before that as daily os. ( because my hardware were way too poor to run any other distro smooth )

Now I use pop os because of my gpu. ( nvidia gtx 950m )

Full spec of laptop is:

  • nvidia gtx 950m 4gb gddr5
  • core i7-6700hq 8-core 3.5gh
  • 8gb ddr4 ram
  • 1 TB HDD
  • 128 GB SSD

First thing is:

does playing with linux worth it?

So some of my friend suggested to install windows 10 home on my hdd and use that for gaming. And some others suggested to use proton ( they suggested to use GE version with lutris or steam lunches it self )

I've watched some videos about playing on linux or windows and some comparisons between dx11,dx12,dxvk,vkd3d. Well I've seen that for some games, dxvk is much better than dx11, like rage 2 or dmc5. But my friends said that those are dxvk and not proton, and that proton will run games much better and faster.

Well about installing windows 10, I don't wanna see grub screen everything I turn on my laptop...

If there's a good way to use linux for gaming as good as possible, I would appreciate it if you clear me about those things.

Second thing ( I'm just gonna ask it hear, if it's OK... )

how to run proton on lutris?

Well read some things about playing games with proton on lutris.

Well after I installed steam, it didn't install proton ( which I think its normal and I should build it )

So hears the thing. Should I change setting in lutris for proton? Like turning dxvk/vkd3d off or on, or enabling Esync or fsync?

I reaaaally appreciate it if you make me clear about all these things... I've been looking for playing my games on linux very much. Installing windows is verrrry messed up for gaming... I just wanna use my games on linux right after I ended my works with other things.

PS: I'm aiming for new games ( not very new, like games till 2019 ) like my laptop is capable to run ac odyssey on 30 fps on 1080 medium settings.

Steam randomly dumping core with SIGABRT

I'm running Steam on Fedora (33), and I've now had at least two games hang randomly (and somewhat rarely) mid-game. When looking at the systemd logs with journalctl, I've found the following happening around the same time:

Jan 16 22:47:43 hostname systemd-coredump[372660]: Process 365735 (steam) of user 1000 dumped core.

   Stack trace of thread 365735:

That made me wonder if it's actually the game hanging, or Steam crashing and the game hanging as a result at some point when trying to communicate with the Steam process, or something.

I haven't found any useful logs for the games, so that's just speculation. Based on the timestamp, though, it seemed like the Steam crash could have preceded the game hanging.

Looking at the core dump info with coredumpctl, it seems the Steam process got handed a SIGABRT, and the stack trace makes it look like it got sent when Steam was trying to free some memory, so that makes me wonder if it's a bug in Steam trying to do a double free or something. I don't know enough judge that, though, and since I haven't really found much of anything with some quick googling (and I'm of course not running the officially supported distro), I'm a bit wary of reporting an issue since I'm not sure if something's just off on my system.

Has anybody run into something similar?

Small guide: How to run the GOG Linux version of FlatOut 2 with Lutris

Hi everyone,

I run Manjaro and love playing Flatout 2, and was very disappointed when audio stopped working. No single fix found online worked for me.

Luckily I managed to fix it myself and wanted to share it, just in case someone else'd ever run into similar issues.

  1. Install the game using the regular GOG Linux installer
  2. Manually add it to Lutris (do not import it)
  3. Install the Lutris 4.15 version of Wine (under "manage versions")
  4. Configure the game (FlatOut2.exe, not *.sh) to run trough this version of wine
  5. Turn off Esync, Fsync, and DXVK
  6. Game will now run the way it should!!

Hope it can be of help!

Epic Games says that i use an outdated Windows Version.

So i installed GTA V using Lutris. When GTA V is finished Downloading and started, it gives an error message that states That Windows XP and Windows Vista isn't supported anymore. I think its because it try's to install Social Club. I tried Reinstalling with Lutris and also just GTA neither works.
thanks.

Dota 2 problem

Hi guys, I have a problem with dota. When I run it it spends a long time with a buggy black screen instead of usual and it takes longer time. Game makes static background noise too. When I find a game instead of loading screen there is a red screen and then I join game. But this 8snt the end. I see unloaded hero menu and it wont load untill baning and few picking phases end making me be atleast one of 2 last pickers of the team. Soun is still filled with static. At the end of the game before I go to post game I again suffer trough long black screen (sound track will play trough this black screen) and by the time I come to post game chat everyone is gone..... Any way to fix this? I tried it on Linux Mint and Opensuse. Same problem.

Emulation on Linux (GPU help request)

Hi,

I would like to use my old PC which is an Intel i5 750 (4) @ 2.661GHz (mainly) for emulation. I'm fed up trying to get my current GPU working (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti) as I can't get it to work correctly (It seems to be stuck at 640x480 with the NVidia drivers (I've been trying for about a year, numerous updates of the driver & the kernel haven't helped..) The only spare monitor I have available is DVI only.

Can anyone advise on a cheap AMD card that would run reDream (Dreamcast) at full speed?I was looking at a Radeon R7 240. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

Runtimesoldier folder not present?

So, helped a friend get pop os, got everything setup. Upon helping him get Mangohud I realized he did not have the runtimesoldier folder in root or home.

Now this is important becuase Mangohud won't launch without editing two lines of the startup file within runtimesoldier.

I have done some googs and I havnt found anyone with a simar issue.

This is probably a simple fix but Iv run out of ideas so if any of you intelligent lads or gals could drop some knowledge that would be great.

He's running > pop os 20.10 Gtx 1060 i7??? Has all the drivers installed with Nvida x working (pop os comes with most of the drivers ready)

Basically is there a way to obtain that folder?

The weird thing is I run pop too with no issues. The only difference is that I'm full Amd.

Does gaming on linux can make GPU Overheating ?

Hi everyone,

I would like to know if there is poeple getting overtheat issues when gaming on Linux ? I'm trying to full move from Windows to Linux, so far i love it, better than Windows, i feel better, coming from a "hackintosh" dualboot, only my linux install is left now as i feel Manjaro Gnome have the feeling of "osx" , or maybe...

I'm still quite a "noob" on linux gaming, i've some trouble to launch some games, i'm using Proton and i've a custom version of Proton too (proton-ge) witch it's working pretty good on some games, but the only games i really played since i'm on linux where benchmark, like the benchmark for Far Cry 5, because i didn't had the time to really play a game this month. Now that i'm free, i tried and ... i never been so scared.

PS : i'm using Lutris too but every game i tried on lutris was never a good experience, specially huge issue with audio.

I was playing Far Cry 5, the first try for about 10 minutes, at the begining the game runs very smootly, but after the introduction (when they go to the helicopter) i started to get HUGE lags, like i'm playing on a 3340X1440 screen, my GPU is getting old, so i know i will never have anymore "60FPS" on high, that doesn't really bother me, the game was running with +- 40 FPS then huge drop to 2 FPS.

I quit the game, asking myself if it wasn't a issue with the proton version that i was running (proton-ge) and switched to proton 5.13. I restart the game and.. it again, runs well except.. after 5 minutes, the huge lag come back.

Then , I heard a "blowing" like wind, at first I thought it was coming from my game and when I took off my headphones... it was my graphic card that ventilating at its maximum, I've clearly never heard it make so much noise before...

The weird thing is that for the type of GPU i've, it's not "uncommon", i got the same temperatures on Windows when i play games : 80C, I also noticed that my case was very hot especially where the graphic card is located and i never heard it getting so loud. CPU was around 57C

I quited the game immediatly, and the fans started spinning much slower in a fraction of a second and i still can't understand because, everything was still very hot

Since yesterday I unfortunately don't dare to play under Linux anymore, it's as if I was "traumatized" by the experience and I have a strong fear of damaging my card by continuing this way, especially since it's not really the time to think about buying a new one with the current prices ... and I don't understand how it could have happened, I have some hypothessis but I don't know if they are the right ones:

1 - I think that the temperatures reported by my graphic card (at least under linux) were bad and much more important than what mangohud was displaying.

2 - The fan curve is wrong, witch could explain why it got very quiet just after pressing ALT+F4 like nothing happend

for the moment I decided to reinstall Windows as a dualboot, just to be able to play, and keep Linux as the main operating system but i feel is not really a "solution".. (but at least i don't have compatibility issue anymore.. let's say that)

Have other people had the same problem as me among you?

Here is a quick summary of my config (start to be old i know) :

CPU : AMD FX 8320 - Black Edition (important to precise, i don't have a early models of FX that were overheating, mine stay "cool" (55-60C ingame)

GPU : AMD R9 290 from Sapphire (Sapphire AMD R9 290 TRI-X)

CASE : Phantek P400 with two pressure fan on the front, one on the top of the heasink and one behind

Thank's you for reading me :)

6900XT - Unsupported Graphics Card &amp; Vulcan-Capable Drivers Required Errors

So I've finally managed to get hold of the parts for my new PC build but I'm having some issues getting everything working. I'm running a new install of Pop_OS 20.10 on a 5600X and 6900XT (yeah, probably not well balanced parts, I know...) I have tested it on Windows and everything seemed to be working fine.

When trying to play games, I get terrible (1FPS in the menu) performance. When I run Feral Interactive games, I get their error messages saying my GPU or GPU driver isn't supported and that I need Vulcan-capable drivers. I ran "sudo apt install mesa-vulkan-drivers" as in their FAQs but it fires back that I already have the latest installed.

I'm fairly new to Linux so not sure how to check what GPU driver I'm using or how to update it, but when I tried to follow AMD's instructions to download and install from their website, it said Pop wasn't supported.

Any help is massively appreciated!

Star Citizen - Linux Users

I installed some new ram on my computer and Windows 10 has rid my license . . . so out of continued frustration with Microsoft, I am vowing to switch to Linux.

What linux distro is best for Star Citizen? What linux distro is the easiest to get Star Citizen running?

One thing I noticed in the past is my motherboard or nvidia graphics card wont allow Ubuntu to ramp up my fans. There seems to be a conflict with something to do with pulse width something something ... iirc it was what linux used to detect and control fans, or read temps on the mobo?

Goal is to have full control over my system, I want to run my fans at 40% regardless of load use. Thanks for any tips you can provide.

Ways to change DPI other than libratbag/piper?

kb macro tools

Heya, wondering if anybody of you has come across a keyboard macro tool. I miss my beloved X-mouse Button Control dearly. I tried Autokey and that is very capable, function-wise, however it introduces stutter to games even on the simplest of macros (press 3 buttons with sleeps in between) and thats a definite no :/

Wine &amp; Lutris now thinks I have a GTX 470 after ""upgrading"" to lastest nvidia driver.

After upgrading to the latest nvidia drivers to the 460.xx (only because games wouldn't even start on 455) lutris and wine think my GPU is a 470. Like I was getting bad performance in Thief Gold. Nvidia are absolutely terrible with linux drivers, each update seems to get more broken. Like the underscan and viewport features are broken as well. It wouldn't really matter if it was cosmetic but performance in games feels worse

Disabling Switch controller IMU joystick on ubuntu/configure Mupen64?

I'm trying to connect two controllers (a ps4 controller and a Nintendo Switch pro controller) to my Ubuntu 20.04 computer to play n64 games on mupen64.

I've gotten all the controllers to be detected (using joycond for the pro controller), and they show up just fine in jstest-gtk, but my problem is that the pro controller shows up as two controllers: one for the regular buttons/joysticks and one for the motion controls.

This would be fine (And is fine in for example Dolphin, which works great with two controllers), if it weren't for the fact that mupen64 on startup will load all joysticks and connect them in a certain order, and there's NO way to disable a controller or even switch places. So player 1 will be the pro controller ("regular" buttons/joysticks), player 2 will be the motion controls (that is, unusable) and player 3 will be my ps4 controller...

There is a file ~/.config/mupen64plus/mupen64plus.cfg where you can set "plugged" to "False", but it seems to never be read from - but it will be written to whenever mupen64 starts (so any changes to this file is overridden on start).

How do I either disable the IMU joystick, or force mupen64 to switch which joystick is used for a certain player?

Why won't the compatibility tools won't work?

I try to launch a game that isn't natively supported, and it doesn't even work for a second. It flashes "Stop X" for a second and then immediately reverts back to "Play" (talking about the play button next to a game). No screens pop-up, no apps open, nothing! And when I try to launch Proton (regardless of version) it gives me an error saying "An error occurred while updating Proton *insert version* (invalid app configuration)" I tried the stuff that was written in the troubleshooting page but nothing worked. And neither does Steam Linux Runtime help. I tried turning it on, enabling it, trying to launch it as if it were a game, and same issue with Proton. This happened last time I reinstalled my OS as well. If anyone knows a fix please tell me.

Steam or Proton resolution problem

Hi!

I have a problem that steam or proton have problem with showing the entire screen when playing in 4K. It looks like this:

https://ibb.co/LRZSXhT

I'm wondering if anyone had the same problem and knows how to solve it. If I lower the resolution to 1920x1080 there is no problem. But as soon I try 3820x2160 it becomes like this.

I have tried Glorious Eggroll, gamemode. I tried to set it to 4K in launch options aswell.

But I'm quite clueless to why this happens. So not shure how to troubleshoot.

Thanks in advance!

Need help with Wineskin on High Sierra

For starters, I'm a Windows user with little to no Mac experience, trying to get The Sims 1 to run on my girlfriend's Mac. So if I seem to have missed some basic aspect here, please be patient with me.

TL;DR: I can't seem to install wrappers to Wineskin. Using High Sierra (10.13.6) or get it to work. What am I doing wrong? Please help.

So I've read that Wineskin Winery is supposedly a great tool to get Windows games to run on Mac. I've downloaded it and noticed I have no wrappers to installed and the guide tells me I have to do that myself. Fair enough, so I click the little plus button to do that, as the guide directed me, and nothing happens. I try that a few more times, still nothing.

So now I try to do it manually. I click on "Download Packages Manually" and then I'm taken to a blank white page reading only "pageok" in the upper left corner. Somebody on reddit mentions the developer's stopped supporting it and their page is down. Okay, so how am I supposed to find an engine now?

So I try googling an engine instead. Find one on GitHub that I download. The readme tells me to place it in Library/Application Support/Wineskin/Engines, only there is no Wineskin folder in Application Support. Searching for "Wineskin" only turns up an empty folder somewhere else. Okay, I shrug, and create a Wineskin folder in AppSupport, then an engine folder therein, and place the engine there. Fire up Wineskin, and still nothing.

Somebody else on reddit mentions using Unofficial Wineskin Winery instead, so I look for that. Turns out what I find is only good for Catalina and upward, so my High Sierra is no good. Looking around some more, I still can't find any version that's for High Sierra.

So what am I missing? Do I need to get Wine proper for this to work (no such requirement has been mentioned anywhere else so I didn't know in that case). Do I simply need to update the OS? If so, how do I do that? Will anything be lost in the process (which is what my girlfriend fears, which I assume is why she hasn't updated any). Is there something else I need?

I've been sitting for hours trying to get it to work now. VMWare couldn't install for some reason so that's a bust, and Wineskin feels like an empty shell at this point. I'm really at the end of my rope here, really frustrated, and I just want something that'll work for me.

Hope this description is detailed enough to make sense of the situation. Looking forward to any advice you might have. Thanks beforehand!

Daikatana and Serious Sam 2's Linux native ports added to Luxtorpeda for Steam

Context 1:

John Romero's Daikatana is a first-person shooter video game developed by Ion Storm for Microsoft Windows and Nintendo 64, and released in 2000.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daikatana

Serious Sam II is the sequel to Serious Sam is an equally un-serious first-person shooter with everything blown out of proportion.

https://serioussam.fandom.com/wiki/Serious_Sam_2

Context 2:

[Luxtorpeda is a] Steam Play compatibility tool to run games using native Linux engines.

News:

Luxtorpeda has added Daikatana 1.3 and Serious Sam 2 Linux beta to its repos. Thanks to that, native ports of those games can be played as a Steam game.

Installation:

Follow "Installation (using tarball)" method, pick Luxtorpeda as Steam Play compatibility tool for those games, then install and run the game as usual.

https://github.com/luxtorpeda-dev/luxtorpeda#installation-using-tarball

Notes:

  • Daikatana: For your own sanity, disable sidekicks and enable unlimited saves.
  • Serious Sam 2: Due to closure of GameSpy, SS2 Linux version doesn't support online multiplayer; for online multiplayer use Windows version via Proton instead.

I tried to reinstall and verify the integrity of the files, but it all seemed fine.

I tried to run with Proton 4.11-13, but it didn't work

I tried steam steam://run/234140 and you guessed it, it didn't work. The output is:

Why is Steam using one core always but doing nothing?

I don't know if this is a problem and what happens there. Steam is open in the background with GUI closed and it should do nothing (no updates and no game in the background). After starting Steam, no problems. But after some time, I see a spike in one of my cpu cores always 100% maxed out constantly. But Steam shouldn't do anything. This is like hours and does not stop.

So looking into system monitor shows 13% usage (4 cores with hyper-threading, 100/8=12.5=~13) without stopping. But it says it is inactive and in waiting state: https://i.imgur.com/vtetlBq.png (sorry German, but that does not matter at all). And the strange thing is, it shows that the files are named ubuntu12_32 and so on: https://i.imgur.com/ecF14Dm.png

21208 KB    /home/tuncay/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steamclient.so
5356 KB /home/tuncay/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/friendsui.so
3552 KB /home/tuncay/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam

Why?

Now, I don't know what info to provide, so please be gentle with me. I just made the switch from Ubuntu to Manjaro and don't know if this was present on Ubuntu too.

Razer Mouse DPI Control

So i have a razer mouse:

  • Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1532:005c Razer USA, Ltd Razer DeathAdder Elite

It has these DPI settings on the DPI change buttons

  • 800
  • 1800
  • 4500
  • 9000
  • 16000

Is there a way to change these numbers? i find 1800 too much and 800 not enough and when i bump the button and end up with 9000 dpi i would really like a keyboard control to set set the DPI to something reasonable at the very least

I can set the DPI in razergenie, but it looks to lack a command line interface

Is there at least some way to read/write the DPI from the command line? then at least i could make a script to watch the DPI and auto correct it to something usable

So iv seen a couple people here not being able to launch the epic games launcher form lutris.

the fix is to run a custom wine proton version using this > https://github.com/lutris/wine/releases/tag/lutris-5.21

Yes i know lutris removed the ability to add proton versions that is why with this version it works when you add it to the prefix.

hope that helps the few who are struggling to get epic to work after the update.

Anyone know if it's possible to make it show the correct game title?

Steam system requirements?

Dumb newbie questions warning: if steam system requirements for Linux games say Ubuntu 12, for example, that would also work for Mint 20?

Also, if I decide I want to switch back to Windows at some point can I do that on this new build Im working on without losing access to the games I bought for Linux on steam?

A question to Valve - (Approximately) when will we get support for EAC and BE?

I recently got back into shooters.
I played some games in my library, but after that got boring I bought Arma 3.
The best way to play Arma is multiplayer, and Arma uses BattlEye. But at least it has singleplayer, and unprotected servers.

After that, I tried Apex legends, which uses EAC. The game will log you off if you don't start EAC.
I can't even play single-player or training, and it's frustrating AF.

Is anybody else getting stick drift on the PS5 Dualsense ONLY when using the official HID-Playstation-dkms driver?

I've tested steam and gamepad-tester.com. Both confirm this. I'm only getting any stick drift when using the official HID-playstation-dkms driver vs no driver / using playstation support on steam.

I'd like to know if anyone also has this issue and if you might have a fix for it.

I'd like to keep using the driver since it tells me my battery level and make the mute mic button work.

Thanks in advance!

Problems with most Visual Novels, videos won't play, game is crashing

Hi!

I've been trying to get some VN's to work but I am running into problems with some of them, using either Crossover or Wineskin. They're working fine inside Parallels VM but I don't really want to use VM just for these relatively simple VNs if could be okay on Wineskin or Crossover.

CLANNAD HD: Running great, but the videos doesn't work. There are three options at Movie Settings for video playback: MCI, DirectShow, Windows Media Player

  • MCI: Black screen, bringing back to menu, window popping up saying change video playback
  • DirectShow: bringing back to menu, window popping up saying change video playback
  • Windows Media Player: Instant crash

(same with Tomoyo After - It's a Wonderful Life)

Hoshizora no Memoria - wish upon a shooting star:

The game quits with an error after a scene change. First it had a problem with locale, so I ran the game with "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8" and Windows XP mode, but it's crashing when I inside the game and it starts to move to the next scene.

https://preview.redd.it/71yp6gvythb61.png?width=799&format=png&auto=webp&s=079008dd9a216507146a05a3d5dda4262ec19596

Summer Pockets: Same problem as with Clannad, when a video should be played it's just skipping it.

Little Busters: The game won't start at all.

In Crossover 20.0.2 I have:

  • Windows XP and Windows 10 64-bit bottles
  • CoreFonts, DirectX9, ffdshow_rev4532 and LAVFilters-0.70.2 installed
  • Tried to install wmp10 from CrossOvers main site, but the CrossTie does nothing
  • Tried to install wmp10 from another provided link, wmp installer says "This version requires Windows XP 32-bit" although I tried with Windows XP bottle
  • Used LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 to have Japanese locale

In Wineskin I have:

  • Installed winetricks: allcodecs, DirectShow, wmp9, wmp11, dx9, ffdshow
  • wmp10 fails to install in winetricks
  • Windows XP mode in winecfg
  • Used LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 to have Japanese locale
  • wrapper: 2.9.0.7-rc4, engine: WS11WineCX64bit20.0.0

OS: macOS Big Sur 11.1, MBP15,2

ffdshow is working because I played a game called "If my Heart Had Wings", and it's played the videos perfectly, but not in Clannad and Summer Pockets.

I didn't found any guide for VNs, or they're are really outdated.

Is there any VN players out there? If yes, please help me with this! What should I install?

I really appreciate any help.

Thank you very much.

Why does my GTX 980 perform poorly on Linux with DX12 games?

DX11 games run alright, but in DX12 games the performance is like a quarter of what I get on Windows. I heard that Vkd3d is awful on Pascal cards, does this extend down to Maxwell cards too?

Games I've tried as an example are Horizon Zero Dawn and Ghostrunner

If yes I suppose I'll just wait until I can upgrade.

Help

Whenever I play CS:GO on Pop!_OS 20.10 i notice that i have around 120 FPS in game when I use the dedicated GPU option, but the frame rate keeps dropping as I play, the lowest it reaches is 50 FPS. The game becomes stuttered and it loses the initial smoothness. Is there any way I can fix this? Also isn't hybrid graphics supposed to switch to the dedicated NVIDIA gpu on its own for games? Unless i explicitly mention it, I get only 20 FPS as the game continues using the Intel Graphics.

Battlefront 2 Celebration Edition Free on EGS - Anyone got it to run on Linux?

mandatory URL: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/star-wars-battlefront-2/home

The problem is the following:

A. Install Origin with Lutris and from there install Battlefront 2 2020 that you previously redeemed in EGS.

Results: the game installs ok but then I can't launch it because EGS is not installed in there and the stupid game seems to need both launchers.

B. Install EGS with Lutris and from there install Battlefront 2 2020 that in its turn will install Origin for you.

Result: EGS installs Origin just fine but then Origin fails to install the game at 17% everytime with or without Lutris runtime enabled I get VC++ redistributable package failed to install.

Been 6 hours run out of ideas, anyone care to shed a light?

(all the packages described here: https://github.com/lutris/docs/blob/master/Origin.md are installed and my drivers are mesa-git, been running games in both EGS and Origin just fine up until this one)

Winetricks not starting with Lutris wine runners in terminal.

Trying to run winetricks using the lutris wine runners in terminal. However I keep getting errors.

I also tried in fresh Pop_OS and 2 fresh manjaro installs and always get same error.

I am trying to run this:

WINEPREFIX=/run/media/michael/LinuxGaming/games/novarotest/ ~/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-5.7-11-x86_64/bin/wine64 winetricks -q dotnet45

is this not correct?

The error is with all versions of lutris wine runners.

Works with my system wine like normal.

I can't figure it out.

If I run winecfg instead of winetricks, I get same error but winecfg still loads.

Looking For Cheap GPU

Hey, I'm really lost when it comes to video cards so I thought the gamers would be the people to ask. I'm looking for something under $150 that is NOT nvidia. I really don't game but I would like to be open to some light gaming. My main requirement is for some HW acceleration for graphic design, plex server transcoding and HW acceleration in a web browser if I can get it configured. I would prefer that it be able to handle 4k but I probably won't have a 4k monitor for years so that's not a big deal. I had an Nvidia 1050 TI but decided I wanted to go with something with an open source driver. I have a Dell 790 MT that can fit a full sized card, but I have a slight preference for low profile so that I can have more options if I move it to another computer. The power supply is upgraded to a 700 Watt EVGA so I should be able to power anything I can afford. It would go in a PCIE x 16 slot. Thanks!

Wine release 6.0
The Wine team is proud to announce that the stable release Wine 6.0
is now available.

This release represents a year of development effort and over 8,300
individual changes. It contains a large number of improvements that
are listed in the release notes below. The areas of major changes are:

  - Core modules in PE format.
  - Vulkan backend for WineD3D.
  - DirectShow and Media Foundation support.
  - Text console redesign.

This release is dedicated to the memory of Ken Thomases, who passed
away just before Christmas at the age of 51. Ken was an incredibly
brilliant developer, and the mastermind behind the macOS support in
Wine. We all miss his skills, his patience, and his dark sense of
humor.

The source is available from the following locations:

  https://dl.winehq.org/wine/source/6.0/wine-6.0.tar.xz
  http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/wine/source/6.0/wine-6.0.tar.xz

Binary packages for various distributions will be available from:

  https://www.winehq.org/download

You will find documentation on https://www.winehq.org/documentation

You can also get the current source directly from the git
repository. Check https://www.winehq.org/git for details.

Wine is available thanks to the work of many people. See the file
AUTHORS in the distribution for the complete list.

----------------------------------------------------------------

What's new in Wine 6.0
======================


*** PE modules

- The core DLLs, including NTDLL, KERNEL32, GDI32, USER32, etc. are
  built in PE format. This should help a number of copy protection
  schemes that check that the DLL files on disk match the in-memory
  contents.

- There is a new mechanism to associate a Unix library with a PE
  module, to make it possible to call Unix libraries from PE for the
  functions that can't be handled with Win32 APIs.
  These libraries are found by replacing the PE module file extension
  with .so, for instance ntdll.dll -> ntdll.so. They have to be
  located next to the PE file on disk.

- Winelib modules no longer link against libwine.so, or require it at
  run-time. This is a backwards incompatible change, meaning that
  modules built with Wine 6.0 won't run on older Wine versions.

- The libwine library is no longer used, but it's still provided to
  support running Winelib modules built against older versions. It is
  deprecated however, and will be removed in a future Wine
  release. Applications that explicitly call libwine functions will
  need to be changed to call equivalent Win32 or Unix APIs instead.
  As a consequence, the wine/library.h header has also been removed.

- PE modules can be built with their debug information split to a
  separate file, to reduce the size of the files installed into the
  Wine prefix.


*** Direct3D

- An experimental Vulkan renderer for WineD3D is implemented. This
  requires the vkd3d-shader library in order to translate Direct3D
  shaders to SPIR-V shaders. In this release, shader support in the
  Vulkan renderer is limited to shader model 4 and 5 shaders. In
  practice, that limits its usefulness to Direct3D 10 and 11
  applications. The Vulkan renderer can be enabled by setting the
  Direct3D "renderer" registry setting to "vulkan".

- The following Direct3D 11 features are implemented:
  - Per render-target ("independent") blend states.
  - Dual-source blending.
  - Multi-sample anti-aliasing sample masks.
  - Several more capability queries.

- Support for Direct3D 9 alpha-to-coverage multi-sampling is
  implemented.

- When the EXT_framebuffer_multisample_blit_scaled OpenGL extension is
  available, scaled multi-sample resolve operations can happen as a
  single operation.

- When the ARB_buffer_storage OpenGL extension is available, it will
  be used to allocate OpenGL buffer objects. This can result in minor
  performance improvements with some application and driver
  combinations.

- The Direct3D graphics card database recognizes more graphics cards,
  and the reported driver versions have been updated.

- New or modified HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D registry keys:
  - "renderer" (REG_SZ)
    The backend API to target. This existing setting has an additional
    valid value in this release: "vulkan". Possible values are now
    "gl" (default) for OpenGL, "gdi" or "no3d" for GDI, and "vulkan"
    for Vulkan.
  - "csmt" (REG_DWORD)
    Enable or disable multi-threaded command stream features. This
    existing setting has an additional valid bit-field value in this
    release. Valid bit-fields in this release are:
    - 0x1 Enable the multi-threaded command stream feature.
    - 0x2 Enable serialization between multiple command streams in the
          same application. This feature is primarily useful for
          applications using multiple Direct3D instances from
          different threads, in combination with OpenGL drivers that
          do not properly support multi-threaded access themselves. As
          of this release, this is known to affect Microsoft Office
          2013 and later versions in combination with the Mesa-based
          Nouveau driver.
    Note that this setting is a bit-field; in order to enable both
    features above, set this to 0x3.

- Removed HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D registry key:
  - "DirectDrawRenderer"
    This setting was previously deprecated in favor of the "renderer"
    setting, and has been removed in this release.


*** D3DX

- Drawing text using the ID3DXFont interface is implemented.

- The ID3D12ShaderReflection shader reflection interface is
  implemented.

- The D3DX10GetImageInfoFromMemory() and related image information
  query functions are implemented.


*** Graphics

- Drawing arcs, ellipses and rounded rectangles using the Direct2D API
  is implemented.

- The standard sRGB color profile is installed into the prefix, for
  applications that expect to load it directly.

- The Null display driver can be used as a proper display driver, for
  cases when a user interface is not needed.

- WindowsCodecs supports decoding images in DDS (DirectDraw Surface)
  and JPEG-XR formats, as well as encoding images to GIF format.

- The Vulkan driver creates the JSON manifest and registry entry used
  by the official Vulkan loader.

- The Vulkan driver supports up to version 1.2.162 of the Vulkan spec.

- There are a number of improvements in GdiPlus, including support for
  widening lines, more hatch styles, and more record types in
  metafiles.


*** Audio / video

- The Media Foundation framework is more complete, including:
  - Initial Media Session implementation for state changes and data
    flow.
  - Initial Streaming Audio Renderer (SAR) pipeline component
    implementation.
  - Initial Video Renderer implementation, a pipeline component
    hosting EVR mixer and presenter.
  - Initial Topology Loader implementation.
  - Various fixes for the Source Reader.
  - Initial Media Engine implementation.
  - Asynchronous queues functionality is moved to rtworkq.dll.

- The AMStream (ActiveMovie Multimedia Streaming) library is more
  fully implemented, including support for streaming and sample
  management.

- The Video Mixing Renderer supports the following features:
  - Windowless and renderless mode.
  - Automatic stretching and resizing of the video to match the window
    size.
  - Hardware-accelerated color space conversion of YUV formats, if
    supported by the underlying Direct3D implementation.
  - Preservation of video aspect ratio via letterboxing.

- The Video Mixing Renderer is used as the default video renderer if
  supported by the underlying Direct3D implementation, replacing the
  GDI video renderer.

- The DirectShow File Writer filter is implemented.

- The DirectX Media Object (DMO) Wrapper filter is implemented. DMOs
  can be automatically enumerated and plugged into the filter graph.

- The video capture filter supports reporting more information about
  video formats, including supported sizes and frame rates.

- More Media Detector APIs are implemented.

- The GStreamer wrapper filter supports video and audio format
  conversion within the GStreamer pipeline. This obviates the need for
  extra transform filters, and accordingly the GStreamer-based YUV to
  ARGB converter, audio converter, and mp3 decoder have been
  removed. Any video can be output in any of several RGB and YUV
  formats, allowing for better performance in some cases.

- The Enhanced Video Renderer (EVR) contains an initial default mixer
  and presenter implementation using DXVA2 API.

- The XACT3 (Cross-platform Audio Creation) engine library and
  interfaces are implemented through FAudio.


*** Text and fonts

- Text console support is reimplemented, using the architecture of
  recent Windows versions, which is closer to the Unix way of doing
  things. In particular:

  - Pseudo consoles are implemented (equivalent to Unix pseudo TTYs).

  - All console handling is done in the ConHost process. WineConsole
    is now only a thin wrapper around ConHost.

  - ConHost handles VT escape sequences, meaning that the Unix Curses
    library is no longer needed.

- Default shaping features are enabled for all scripts in
  DirectWrite. All types of GSUB/GPOS lookups are supported.

- In DirectWrite, CMAP data is read directly from the font without
  global cache or a need to create FreeType objects, for improved
  performance.

- The font initialization in GDI32 avoids loading fonts through
  FreeType when possible, for faster startup times. The font registry
  cache is also more efficient.

- The Uniscribe support in the USP10 library is moved into GDI32, as
  per recent Windows versions.

- An initial version of the Webdings font is implemented, with only a
  few glyphs at this point.


*** Input devices

- Raw input devices and messages are implemented, and used by
  DirectInput instead of less efficient low-level hooks.

- An initial USB kernel driver is implemented, based on the LibUSB
  library, to provide access to USB devices.

- Mouse position history is implemented, for games that want more
  precise mouse positions.

- SDL controller mappings can be set through the
  'SDL_GAMECONTROLLERCONFIG' environment variable.

- Plug & Play device notifications are implemented.


*** Desktop integration

- Display settings are retrieved through XRandR 1.4 if available. This
  also provides support for multiple display orientations.

- There is a consistent view of the graphics adapters across the X11,
  OpenGL and Vulkan APIs.

- The desktop work area layout is supported on multi-monitor setups
  using the _GTK_WORKAREAS property.


*** Internationalization

- Unicode character tables are based on version 13.0.0 of the Unicode
  Standard.

- Unicode normalization is fully standard-compliant, including support
  for Hangul, supplementary character planes, and IDN normalization.

- Codepage and other Unicode tables are stored in external NLS files
  compatible with Windows. This makes it possible to test with the
  native files to track down character mapping issues.

- Codepage mapping tables are generated from Microsoft's Open
  Specification data for better compatibility.

- Unicode linguistic case mappings for languages like Turkish are
  implemented.

- Codepage 708 (Arabic ASMO) is supported.


*** Kernel

- Windows version compatibility mode is implemented, to only report
  the newest Windows versions to applications that have declared that
  they support them.

- INI file mappings are implemented, to redirect .ini file entries to
  registry keys.

- Many more NT kernel objects and functions are implemented, to
  support anti-cheat systems that load kernel drivers.

- A NetIO.sys kernel driver is implemented, to support copy protection
  drivers that want to access the network.

- AVX registers are supported in register contexts and exception
  handling on x86 platforms.

- The Kernel User Shared Data block contains up-to-date timestamps, to
  avoid system calls when retrieving the current time counter.


*** C Runtime

- The C runtime import libraries provide the necessary runtime support
  so that PE modules no longer depend on the MinGW runtime.

- The Wine modules are all built against the new UCRT runtime.

- Winegcc uses the new UCRT runtime by default, unless an older C
  runtime library is explicitly imported.

- The C runtime supports Windows locales that use the UTF-8 codepage.

- A number of C runtime math functions are implemented internally
  based on code from the Musl C library, to avoid depending on the
  system math library.

- Floating point formatting is reimplemented in the C runtime to avoid
  depending on the system printf function.


*** Internet and networking

- The Gecko engine is updated to version 2.47.2.

- The WebSocket API is implemented.

- JScript and VBScript report the correct location for errors in
  scripts.

- There are various improvements to the LDAP and Active Directory
  Service support.

- There is an initial implementation of the NDIS network driver.

- The OLE data link dialog supports configuring the ODBC data
  connection.


*** Cryptography

- The BCrypt library supports additional algorithms, including DSA
  keys and the 3DES cipher.

- The DSSENH (Digital Signatures) Cryptographic Provider is
  implemented, and enabled by default.


*** Alternative platforms

- Support for exception handling and stack unwinding on ARM platforms
  (both 32-bit and 64-bit) should be on par with the x86
  architectures.

- There is initial support for ARM64 on macOS, for the new Apple
  Silicon.

- Support for the obsolete 32-bit PowerPC architecture is removed. It
  had been broken for some time already.

- Case-insensitive filesystem optimizations are enabled on FreeBSD.


*** Builtin applications

- WineCfg supports querying and modifying the configured Windows
  version through the command line with a new /v option.

- The Shell Folders configuration in WineCfg also supports the
  Downloads and Templates folders.

- The removable drive autodetection has been removed in WineCfg, now
  that the dbus dynamic device support is stable.

- The FSUTIL tool supports a 'hardlink' command to create hard links.

- The FIND tool supports searching multiple files, in addition to
  standard input.

- The WHOAMI tool is implemented to display the current username.


*** Development tools

- Winegcc supports generating PDB files when building PE DLLs, for
  compatibility with Windows debuggers.

- DbgHelp supports GNU-style debug information also in PE files.

- Winegcc can generate an import library directly when building a DLL,
  with the '-Wl,--out-implib' option.

- The various build tools also look for include and library files in
  paths relative to the tool binary, to allow relocatable Winelib
  installations.

- The Resource Compiler (wrc) and Message Compiler (wmc) use the
  external NLS files for codepage conversions. If necessary, the path
  to the external files can be specified with the '--nls-dir' option.

- There are various improvements in the gdb proxy mode in WineDbg,
  including support for hardware watchpoints, and for loading symbols
  from PE modules.

- The Message Compiler (wmc) handles the Unicode BOM to detect the
  input file format.

- The Resource Compiler (wrc) has a '--utf8' option to specify UTF-8
  input, as an alternative to putting #pragma codepage inside the
  file.

- The IDL compiler (widl) supports a WinRT mode, and various
  constructs specific to that mode.

- The IDL compiler (widl) supports custom attributes in type
  libraries.


*** Build infrastructure

- Makefiles are no longer recursive; a single Makefile is generated to
  build the entire tree, with correct dependencies between modules.

- Automake-style silent build rules are supported. They are disabled
  by default, but can be enabled by passing the '--enable-silent-rules'
  option to configure.

- The new LLVM-MinGW compiler is supported for PE cross-compilation.

- Building with the Clang compiler in MSVC mode is supported.

- A '-syscall' entry point flag is supported in spec files, to
  generate NT-style system call entry points.


*** Miscellaneous

- The Mono engine is updated to version 5.1.1, containing the open
  sourced parts of the WPF framework, and initial replacements for
  some of the closed source parts.

- Most modules have been converted to use wide-character string
  constants like L"abc" instead of explicit arrays, for more readable
  code.

- Many of the less common timezones (for various remote islands) are
  supported.

- Listviews and image buttons are supported in MSI installers.

- There is initial support for the Print Ticket API.


*** New external dependencies

- The LibUSB library is used to implement the USB driver.

- The VkD3D-Shader library is used to translate Direct3D shaders to
  SPIR-V shaders for the WineD3D Vulkan renderer.

- The Curses, GLU, and Zlib libraries are no longer used.

Chilling game recommendations? Historically have liked strategy and city builders but open to other stuff

I am also into open world games and rpgs however for the former I doubt my 2013 computer can handle much in that regard and for the latter I recently played pathfinder kingmaker and pillars of eternity and have gone off both so that itch is scratched atm. Kingmaker with their fucking timers ruined it for me but POE I guess I will take another nibble at soon.

I am feeling like a nice chill rts or god/city builder type.

I have not kept in touch with gaming coming out in the last ten years really there might be new genres and the like so open to other things that might fit the bill. Love things like railroad tycoon and settlers and caesar games of the genres I mentioned.

I have played a couple of total war games but never really caught the bug with those, found them quite dry tbh.

New monitor, not sure I'm using gsync/freesync

I'm using a DP cable to a freesync monitor connected to my Nvidia 1070. Freesync Premium is enabled on the monitor and Gsync in Nvidia settings as well as the overaly. I've tried 5 games so far, 1 native and 4 Proton, and I just get the "normal" Nvidia overlay, doesn't say Gsync is enabled. Any tips? Does it work with Proton/Wine games? I'm googling but the googles do nothing for me.

Origin will not install games, they all have the error VC++ could not be installed, please help

Ok, I have one of my computer on Ubuntu 20.04.1 for the last 5 months with Lutris installed and Origin installed on it. All the games installed there without issue and most of them will play. Now, on my 2 other desktop computer builds, I installed Ubuntu 20.04.1 for better privacy and security since everything is falling apart. Lutris installs and Origin installs and logs in without issue. However, no matter what I install, like Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017), it fails to installs and gets a VCC error. The Lutris runtime is not disabled.

I am sure there is a solution but I have not found it so, any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Slow frame rate

Hey there!

I'm having a hard time to set up my notebook. so lets begin by the beginning, I have a Chromebook pixel 2015 LS (i7 16gb/64gb). Because it's relative strong hardware to run chrome OS, I decide to search some ways to get most of its hardware, so I found 2 ways to do that. First one was my most promissory way, which was to modify it's bios then replace chrome OS to windows or Linux, but I failed that because when I install windows or Linux, my external monitor does not work (there is no reason why). So I've tried my second shot with crouton, here I got further but still did not get where I want, I already customize it as I wanted, installed all my needed programs, but I'm having some trouble with some applications (especially) that require somehow a graphic acceleration.

So my actual scenario is: I have installed on my Chromebook Xubuntu and updated it to 20.04 LTE, already installed a bunch of graphics drivers such as mesa-utils, vulkan-tools (but not sure if I've installed all applications and drivers needed to run games properly), but when I start programs like google web designer, figma or steam and steam games, things get little weird, there is some non sense drop of performance like: when I start borderlands 2, the opening screen runs smoothly, then a credit screen appears it got laggy, after that, there is a short cut scene which back to normal running smoothly, then when the menu show's up, it get like 10 fps.

There is some additional information that may tell you something, that is the second time that I install crouton, the first time I got almost everything up and running as I wanted on Ubuntu 18.04 LTE (especially games, I was able to play borderlands 2 smoothly, and I even could run some games with proton such as need for speed shift), to do that the only different thing that Ive done, was purge a Intel driver (which makes screen flickering on Ubuntu 18.04) and did not upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04. (but then, I screwed up trying to update to 20.04 LTE, a bunch of applications crashed and I haven't done the backup)

PS: the Intel application that I purged at the first time, I don't know what it is exactly, I found someone having the same flickering issue at Ubuntu 18.04 and done what he was told to, but now that i needed again this command line, i could not find :(

Is there any way to lock my cursor to a windowed game?

Hello! I recently posted here looking for advice on which distro to go for when switching from windows. I'm dual booted into Majaro right now, and I haven't launched into windows since installing it! But recently, I've run into a problem

I watch a lot of media while playing games. I'm on an Ultrawide (3440x1440) so I usually play certain games in windowed mode. I noticed that when I move my cursor too far, it goes outside of the window. Some games this would be fixed with an alt-tab out and back into the program for some reason. But right now, I'm playing Hyper Light Drifter. My only real option to play this game is windowed mode, and the mouse cursor will not stay in screen. For a game of this nature especially, it's extremely frustrating.

I found a few fixes when looking it up, but I couldn't find any solutions for Linux, only windows. If anyone knows of any way to lock my cursor to a game window, it would be greatly appreciated. If you need any more info let me know! Thanks for reading.

More info: I'm running Hyper Light Drifter via steam (using a Linux-native version)

Anyone having issues with Lutris and Nvidia's 460 driver?

I've installed Lutris and Epic Game Store on Ubuntu 20.10, and then installed Mortal Shell. However, when I try to open the game, it says that there's an issue with my Nvidia driver and that I should install driver 441.

I also get this:

Your application is built to load COOKED content. No COOKED content was found; This usually means you did not cook content for this build.

It also may indicate missing cooked data for a shader platform(e.g., OpenGL under Windows)

Has anyone else come across this?

Monthly active Linux users on Steam - close to 1 million

Valve put out a year in review for 2020, showing they've increased to 120 million monthly active users overall.

That puts the Linux number at close to 1 million monthly active users.

I've updated the GOL Steam Tracker to note this, at the bottom.

0.78% (December 2020's number for Linux) of 120 million = 936,000

New Linux user here, need help setting up CoreCtrl

Hi! I am new to Linux and I am interested in gaming on Linux. One thing that I have on Windows is my RX 580 overclock profile in the radeon settings. I recently discovered the CoreCtrl program so I gave it a download. However, it needs some setup so that the user can access full GPU controls.

This portion of the setup is on the wiki, (here's the link - https://gitlab.com/corectrl/corectrl/-/wikis/Setup) Right now I've only done the first command so that CoreCtrl launches on startup. I can't understand the rest. Could anyone help?

I did the 'pkaction --version' command and got .105, so I'm guessing that I use the first one. However, I don't understand it.

In the notes it says "replace your-user-group" with my user group name. I'm such a noob, so how do I find my user group name?

Later in the post under "full AMD GPU controls" it says that "you need to append the boot parameter

amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff

to your bootloader configuration and reboot."

It gives Grub as an example but how do I know which one I am using? Sorry If I don't know much of the Linux file management system.

My distro is Pop_OS! 20.10 if that helps!

So i am one of the people that doesn't trust windows but i am a gamer too. So i looked online after an alternative to windows and i found out that you can run windows in a kvm and still use Linux. But as my excitement got up it broke down very fast after i heard that it can be detected by anticheats like EAC etc. Is there anyway for me to hide from the detection and still enjoy games that is meant for "real windows"?

Query/Help regarding 144 Hz monitor

Greetings Penguins,

I recently upgraded my monitor from 1080p@60 Hz to 1080p@144 Hz ; everthing looks buttery smooth. But, I am wondering why Gnome 3 settings shows 143.85Hz instead of 144 Hz ? Is there anyway to achieve exact 144 Hz of refresh rate on Gnome 3 ?

My xorg.conf : config

My nvidia-settings : IMGs

xrandr output :

Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 32767 x 32767
DVI-D-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

DP-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI-2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

Things I tried :

  • deleting ~/.config/monitors.xml
  • Manually setting using xrandr
  • Played Desperados 3, and in menu screen with vsync on, it does reach 144 Hz, though I observed - it fluctuates between 143fps and 144fps.

My HW details :

  • MSI Optix G241
  • Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti

All I am trying to achieve is remaining 0.15Hz ; any help in troubleshooting will be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

How To Install And Run Spyro Reignited Trilogy On Linux

Hi everyone.

Continuing with my series covering installing and running Windows developed games on Linux, this time we are covering Spyro Reignited Trilogy.

First of all, the game runs out of the box using the latest version of Proton, however none of the cutscenes will play, instead they will be skipped.

The solution is to use Glorious Eggroll's Proton-GE build if you want the cut scenes to play.

As always, I have created a quick video outlaying the steps.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzFA5KFJnBw&feature=youtu.be

But for people who prefer a written guide, see below.

Step 1 - Install Latest Driver for Your GPU

This can be done multiple ways, but depending on your distribution, you will usually have some form of GUI tool that handles this task for you.

https://github.com/lutris/docs/blob/master/InstallingDrivers.md

Alternatively, you can use the Terminal.

For example, for Ubuntu distributions with nVidia hardware, use the following Terminal commands in sequence:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa 
sudo apt update 
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-460 
sudo apt install libvulkan1 libvulkan1:i386 
reboot  

Step 2 Install Steam and Enable Proton

Steam can be installed through your distributions package manager, either using a GUI tool or through the Terminal.

For example, on Ubuntu based distribution, it is the following command:

sudo apt install steam  

Once installed, launch Steam, apply any updates and sign into your account.

By default, you will not be able to install the game it is has not been officially whitelisted by Valve as Proton compatible.

But this can be overwritten by navigating to Steam / Steam Play / Advanced, ticking the Enable Steam Play for all other titles, and selecting the latest version of Proton.

Reboot Steam once done.

To fix the cutscenes, we need to use a custom version of Proton.

https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/proton-ge-custom

I recommend Glorious Eggrolls Proton-GE build, which can be downloaed from the Release tab on the right-hand side.

Scroll down to the latest release, and download and extract the tar.gz archive, and once this archive is extracted, make a copy of the Proton-GE folder.

Next open up your Home directory, and enable Hidden files, navigate to. steam / root and create a new folder called compatibilitytools.d, and inside this folder, paste the Proton-GE folder you copied earlier.

Restart Steam if still open, and now when you right click on the Properties of the game and choose the Compatibility tab, you can tick the Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool and select the Proton-GE build from the list.

As always, if you found this helpful, please consider checking out other tutorials, and subscribe if you like what you see.

Thanks

Ryan

Realm of Order, a cross-platform multiplayer city building game.

Hi Linux Gaming,

I'd like to announce Realm of Order, an entropically stable, multiplayer city building game. Starting in a procedural world, in ancient times, build cities to expand your culture! Each citizen has unique needs that you need to meet in order to progress in the game. Use religion to shape the citizens to your will, or occupy the cities of your peers so they comply with your orders!

Designed as large-scale drop-in drop-out session, where progress is made by developing a robust resource network.

I'm a big fan of city-building games and I've always wanted to play them with friends, however, practically every city-builder that is released is singleplayer. That's why I'm designing one with multiplayer in mind and at the same time bringing original ideas to the genre.

The game started as a mod for 0AD, however, it soon outgrew their engine and I have been building a new one to support the large worlds and multiplayer features of Realm of Order. Linux is my primary platform and the game will have first-class Linux support.

The core engine is implemented (including multiplayer) and we have the assets, what's left to develop is the UI & gameplay.

However, there's just the two of us working on the game and neither of us have any marketing experience or connections to promote the game. We are thinking of starting a Kickstarter or Patreon to fund the remaining development time however, I want to find out if there is a community for this kind of game.

So please let me know if you think this game should exist and whether or not you would consider funding the game on Patreon or Kickstarter.

Don't hesitate to ask any questions!

You will find our social media links on the (bare-bones) landing-page. https://realmoforder.com

PS: There are a couple of development screenshots in the discord.

16% of the downloads from a small game I created is from Linux users

I created a small game last weekend (The Hunt for my GirlFriend that can be downloaded from https://beer119.itch.io/the-hunt-for-my-girlfriend ) while trying to learn Godot. It is a simple 2d platforme with 2 levels.

And I can see that 16% of the downloads are Linux users. That shows that there is Linux users out there that is hungrey for games.

How can I create application menu shortcuts of steam games?

I don't wanna have desktop shortcuts,I want Application Menu shortcuts,but you can't make that directly in steam.

So what would be cool would be to be able to change that if I click on "create desktop shortcut" that it creates the shortcut in the application menu instead of desktop.

I already asked that but the only answers said how to link desktop shortcuts and application menu shortcuts from steam automatically,but I don't wanna have desktop shortcuts in the first place.

Cities Skylines seems to have many visual glitches for me.

Things disappear and reappear depending on the camera angle, it is an old problem that seems to be getting worse, a few months ago I played and it had less significant visual glitches in the forest view, and I played again a few days ago and everything is glitching. This is on manjaro 20.2.1 with an rx 580 8gb and core i7 8700k. Is this a problem others are having? How can I fix it? https://imgur.com/a/RVnuUb3 (sorry for random freezes those are not the game's fault)

Ghost Recon Wildlands &amp; Breakpoint.

I've got steam installed and have played some Windows games via proton, but has anybody played the above games that require uplay to play. They are the two main Windows games that I play now, along with a modded GTA V and Fallout 4.

I did try Lutris once and playonlinux but didn't have much luck at the time.

So wondering if anybody has tried lately and has any tips or reviews.

Considering making Linux the VM rather than the other way around

Considering making Linux the VM rather than the other way around

Wanted to get y'all's input on this. I was blessed with a brand new 3080 for Christmas, an upgrade from my 1070ti, and I thought that I would give Linux another try. My last attempt at it was pretty disastrous because of my affiliation to team green.

Constant crashing, segmentation faults in my browsers, nothing just werks, it was just a perfect storm of instability. And that made me really sad! Because I love Linux and the features that it has over Windows. I love the look and feel of my desktop, I love that I can just type whatever programs I want into the terminal and the OS crawls out and installs everything for me.

But at the end of the day, when I am sitting at my desktop, I am always doing one of three things: writing music (which requires that I run Windows for Finale and Reaper), shitposting on the internet, and playing video games

And despite me being fairly savvy, and willing to put some time into troubleshooting and reading to get things to work, it's just awful, to be honest with you. I loaded up Doom Eternal, which everybody on proton db says should just work, and I can't even get into the game. Even after trying to debug it, it just crashes. Which I would be okay with but, *everything* just crashes, my browser tabs, my entire desktop, it's really no bueno.

Which brings me to my question. Have any of y'all daily driven a system where you run Linux in a VM, inside Windows, rather than the other way around? My desktop basically always stays on permanently anyway, if I have to suffer through a few seconds of clicking around in Windows to get to my Linux, but it's perfectly stable, and I can just tab back over whenever I want to play video games, I think that would be an okay trade-off.

What do y'all think?

World of Warcraft mouse bug

Hi. Wow is the game I play the most and I saw flightless mango did a video showing how great performance is under Linux. Even beating windows.

I have tried using both manjaro and pop os. I can install and run the game just fine. It runs smooth in every way except one. The mouse jumps around when I click and move the camera. It's hard to replicate immediately but after a few seconds of moving the camera it will just jump really fast in the direction I'm moving it. I have tried the stuff I have seen here, using wine staging, enabling vsync. Capping the frame rate. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

How do I get games on Linux to recognize my Gamecube controller outside of Dolphin?

Hey everyone, so on Windows I typically play single player games with the Gamecube controller using the official Nintendo adapter through programs such as "Wii U USB GCN Adapter" (to have it recognized by the game / emulator as a vjoy device) and sometimes X360CE when needed to mask it as a Xbox 360 controller. Is something like this possible on Linux, preferably as noob friendly as possible? I don't currently have a Linux distro installed as I wasn't able to find much on this, but it'd greatly help me switch off Windows for good. The distro I was using was Q4OS Trinity, based on Debian Stable, and I'll more than likely be using the same distro if this is possible. Thanks.

Can't play proton games

Hi. Im trying to play some games on linux, but I can't. I tried with "Prominence Poker" and "Wolf among us" just to test and I couldn't play anyone.

Pominence Poker just don't open, I see the little banner and steam saying "openning" but then it just closes and steam button changes from playing to play. And Wolf among us opens, but it runs really bad, cinematic freezes and it's unplayable.

I know that they don't have native support for Linux, but according to protonDB and the reports of several users both games runs perfectly on Linux:

https://www.protondb.com/app/250320

https://www.protondb.com/app/384180

I already did these things:

1) steam settings-> steam play-> "Enable steam play for supported tittles" and "enable steam play for all other titles"

2) Game properties->Compatibility-> Force the use of a specific steam play compatibility tool:

Proton 5.13-4, 5.0-10 and 4.11-13 (olders proton say that I have directX 10 and I need 11)

3) Install all Mesa Drivers according to Arch linux wiki, with the following package:

lib32-mesa

xf86-video-amdgpu

libva-mesa-.driver and lib32-libva-mesa-driver

mesa-vdpau and lib32-mesa-vdpau

4) Use newest Kernel (5.9.16-1) and LTS kernel (5.4.85-1)

Any idea why I can't open those games?

Specs: Intel I5-4460, 8GB RAM with AMD R7 370 NITRO (4GB Vram)

Os: Manjaro Linux 20.2.1

Steam: Tried both available packages, Steam (runtime) and Steam (native)

Thanks!

Any idea how to do a remotely play a Steam single player game together with someone?

This might sound like a bit of a weird question but I'm playing a through Kingdom Come Deliverance which I'm completing with my friend. We used to do turns on who plays whenever we'd meet, but want to be able to do the same thing through a remotely, like how Steam Remote Play works. I've also looked into solutions like Parsec, but it seems like that only supports Windows as a host and I'm currently running Arch Linux.

Do you guys have any ideas on how to make the steam Remote Play Together feature work with other steam games that the developers haven't implemented the features for? I've managed to spoof steam into thinking Lutris is a remote play together game, but as soon as I run another game within Lutris steam will trigger to me playing a different steam game. This will in theory work with non-steam games and/or DRM-free games, but all games that requires Steam to open them will not work through this method to my knowledge.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated :)

Equivalent to AMD overdrive for linux ?

I'd like to slightly overclock my APU (A9-9400) to its "turbo-core" clock.

When I used to have windows, the clock was constantly to the turbo-core clock, and with AMD overdrive I could manage a bit of software overclock.

With gamemode enabled, the turbo-core frequency works as long as the CPU is not under load but drops as soon as I request more performance... Is this possible on linux ? Software or system files idk

Edit: BIOS is locked and it is a laptop so no options for a real clean overclock

Overclocking Radeon Pro VII

I am trying to overclock and undervolt the Radeon Pro VII card and not having much luck. I am running Ubuntu 20.04 (kernel 5.4.0-58-generic) and have the AMDGPU-Pro v20.45 drivers installed. I have added the following kernel parameter amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff.

I have the performance level in "manual":

echo "manual" > /sys/class/drm/card1/device/power_dpm_force_performance_level

Unfortunately all commands I send to pp_od_clk_voltage results in an error:

echo "s 8 1800 1060" > pp_od_clk_voltage

-bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument

I cannot read table from the pp_od_clk_voltage, it just returns empty results:

cat /sys/class/drm/card1/device/pp_od_clk_voltage

OD_RANGE:

But can read the pp_dpm_sclk and pp_dpm_mclk:

root@ethminer1:/sys/class/drm/card1/device# cat pp_dpm_sclk

0: 859Mhz

1: 860Mhz

2: 1153Mhz

3: 1316Mhz *

Any managed to get Venice Unleashed run on Linux?

I have BF3 installed on Steam, but I can only play the campaign. The reason is that BF3 uses a hybrid server browser, that uses a website to find servers and then launches the game.

Back in 2011 was great, as I could find friends playing, or populated servers and then open then game.

Venice Unleashed is a great MOD that literally resurrected BF3 and servers are once again full. Why not, it was one of the best online FPS I have ever played.

VU installs itself in a separate folder and into the configuration adds where BF3 is located.
I suppose this would be an easy to do installation, but my Wine knowledge doesn't go that far.

Anybody tried it and managed to get it working?

Any generic guides on how it would be possible to achieve that?

I cannot find it in Lutris nor Proton and I am a bit surprised, considering how popular this game was and is again...

Could anyone help diagnose this wine error? Failed request 151 (151)

I'm trying to play the game Underrail, on winehq it has a gold rating. However when I try to run it I get this in the log. I use a nvidia card with nvidia proprietary drivers and it seems to have an issue with this somewhere. The gold tester on winehq was using open source intel drivers.

Proton v Proton-GE performance on RTX2070

Hi all

Just curious, as I have only been 'gaming' on Linux for a few months with my new laptop.

I'm running Fedora 33 kernel 5.9.16, with the latest 460 Nvidia drivers.

I have a large Steam collection, but currently flipping between Assassins Creed Odyssey, GTAV, Halo, Sea of Thieves and a few others. No matter which official Proton flavour I select, Experimental, 5.13-4, 5.0.10 or older, I get very slow performance on my games. They install perfectly using the official Proton, but just really choppy performance in-game. (5-20fps).

If I use Proton-GE 5.9-GE8 everything runs perfectly. Only issue is some games don't install correctly, so I switch to experimental for install, then back to GE.

Proton GE 5.21 only works properly with GTA IV (not 5) but sucks like official Proton for everything else.

Is there something that does not work correctly on Nvidia cards with Proton official? Is there a game command to use in Steam that would fix the sluggish performance?

Is there also something that GE 5.21 uses from official Proton that would also affect this version?

I'm a little concerned that going forward, that if my new game purchases don't run on 5.9-GE8, I'll be out of luck with terrible performance.

Just curious as to why other people have luck with official Proton but it does not work well on anything I have. I've tried over 20 games with similar results.

Refresh rate capped to 60 fps on Linux VM on Windows

Hi, I'd like to run a Linux VM on my Windows 10 laptop. The issue is that I cannot seem to get anything more than a 60 Hz refresh rate for my display when running the VM. My display supports up to 144 Hz, and I'd like to take advantage of that. I've heard that maybe passing through my GPU can help but I really don't know how that works and everything I searched led me to a guide trying to run a Windows VM on Linux not the other way round. Is there anything I can do to get this working?

I can run Cyberpunk and Doom Eternal on ParrotOS Steam!

I refused to give up my Windows installation primarily because I could get recent games working on my linux distro. Today I realised that if I install the add ons in the software centre (vulkan drivers, proton compatibility community edition etc) the games now work!!!

Ive been using Linux for years and only ran a few games that would working using the normal proton compatibility version - the community build did the trick and I am so damn happy!

GTA V + SHV = DirectX error (modding issue)

Hello guys. I have spent many weeks doing trial and error figuring out how to make a Proton prefix compatible for GTAV modding.

Recently, as I switched back to experimenting on Proton 5.0, I started getting an issue I never had before "directx texture creation failed", which happens when a library loaded by ScriptHookV requires loading graphics/images to work. An example of that is Menyoo. Did anyone have that problem?

Weirdest part is, I remember solving it on my own, but I forgot what fixed it after wiping the prefix.

On my latest prefix I have used winetricks on top of Wine 5.11 (using WINE=) to install d3dcompiler_42 d3dcompiler_43 d3dcompiler_47 d3dx10 d3dx10_43 d3dx11_42 d3dx11_43 d3dx9 vcrun2012 vcrun2017 dotnet452 dotnet462 according to this post. I added dotnet462 to the list as I intentionally aimed for a Wine version with greatest support to install with.

Pretty much out of the question since the main issue is about SHV, but I added a DLL override for dinput8, too.

I would be very grateful if you could help me with this as it would enable me to get the most out of modding on Linux. Also, I am still working on my complete modding guide for the game with the goal of making it easy enough for newbies to enjoy modding.

Thank you!

Lutris - NovaRo Installer problem

Hi everyone,

I'm having some trouble installing NovaRo on my machine.

I'm using a Surface Book with Performance Base, Ubuntu 20.10, Lutris 0.5.8.2, fresh install.

I've installed Wine first and proceeded to use the installer: https://lutris.net/games/novaro/

I've referenced the instalation with the .exe file I downloaded from NovaRo page: https://www.novaragnarok.com/?module=main&action=download

But during the installation, some error show up. It keeps looping through this code, and doesn't finish anything:

016b:err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7bd59980 "/home/ubuntu/buildbot/runners/wine/wine-src/dlls/ntdll/loader.c: fls_section" wait timed out in thread 016b, blocked by 0111, retrying (60 sec)0174:err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7bd59980 "/home/ubuntu/buildbot/runners/wine/wine-src/dlls/ntdll/loader.c: fls_section" wait timed out in thread 0174, blocked by 0192, retrying (60 sec)0053:err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7bd59980 "/home/ubuntu/buildbot/runners/wine/wine-src/dlls/ntdll/loader.c: fls_section" wait timed out in thread 0053, blocked by 0178, retrying (60 sec)

I tried Disable Lutris Runtime, but didn't work. It gives me 'No file provided'.

Folks on the NovaRo Discord suggested me posting here to see if you can help me out.

Steam Source-based Mods Compatibility

Anyone have success with mods on Steam? Not ones hosted on Steam, they seem to work ok but more specifically HL 1&2 mods that Steam doesn't host where you have to manually download and place in the sourcemods folder? Coming from Windows, none work for me and the only links I found about it were very old.

Did anyone manage to make MangoHud work using the env variable PRESSURE_VESSEL_FILESYSTEMS_RO?

I'm trying to get MangoHud to work with Proton 5.13-4 or Proton Experimental and Death Stranding.

I tried to use the PRESSURE_VESSEL_FILESYSTEMS_RO environmental variable but is not working.

I tried with this launch option:

PRESSURE_VESSEL_FILESYSTEMS_RO="$MANGOHUD_CONFIGFILE" mangohud %command%

and this:

PRESSURE_VESSEL_FILESYSTEMS_RO="/home/leinardi/.config/MangoHud/MangoHud.conf" mangohud %command%

with no luck.

I'm using Mongo 0.6.1 and Ubuntu 20.10.

Switching Distro

Hey guys, I have been a Linux Mint Cinnamon user for the past quarter year and while I was happy with it, I sometimes found myself quite annoyed because of the window manager and the lack of customization. So I want to switch distro and I am undecided between Kubuntu and Manjaro, both of which seem to be quite suitable for gaming. But I thought I'd ask the community and what you use (I am also very open for any other distros you might recommend) The only thing I want is to be able to use the KDE desktop environment, but that's all.

Arctis 7 with Linux?

Is someone here using the wireless Arctis 7 headset on Linux or has at least tested it? It seems to me that the price practically includes it's software, AFAIK only runs on Windows. I would not care about in-depth customization if the overall sound quality was fine. Does it have significant drawbacks in audio quality because of the missing Steelseries software or is it just fine? Any other impressions of the headphone, that I should consider before buying?

What also would be cool would be that the voice changed mic is a different input than the normal mic without voicechanging,so that if I scam tech support scammers,that the guys in Discord could hear me without the voice changer,but the scammer does.

Reading the Ryzen 5000 series tdie temperature

I just got a Ryzen 5800X and I would like to check the temperature of if while I'm gaming, just to be sure that everything is fine.

I do no need to see the temperature on a OSD, like with MangoHud, I just want to find a way to read the tdie temperature directly from Linux, like I was used to do with the 3000 series.

I know that Kernel 5.10 will bring this feature, but I'm running Ubuntu 20.10 and I was wondering if there is anything that can work with Kernel 5.8.

Is it an option to checkout the source of k10temp module and build and run it on my current 5.8 kernel?

Has anyone manage to read the Zen3 temperature from Linux, without using a Kernel 5.10?

Is it safe to use Kernel 5.10 on Ubuntu 20.10? I have an Nvidia card, any known issue with kernel 5.10 and Nvidia?

Enabling mods in The Witcher 2 (Proton)

I have installed directly the windows version using proton. Then I installed "rebalance combat" mod using Wine. During the installation I've set the following directory: $HOME/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/the witcher 2/

But I'm unable to enable it. In the game launcher, when I select the mods option, the mod I installed is not listed. However, if I go to $HOME/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/the witcher 2/bin and launch userContentManager.exe with wine, the mod is listed! But if I select to enable it and try to save, I can not!

https://i.ibb.co/2WDZwz3/Screenshot-from-2021-01-10-21-40-29.png

Because as you can see, it's pointing to a bad directory. The correct one should be this: $HOME/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/20920/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/My Documents/Witcher 2/Config/UserContent.ini

I've tried to workaround it by editing the file directly, putting

[Packages]
Mount=fcr2_a1
Mount=fcr2_a2
Mount=fcr2_a3
Mount=fcr2_a4
Mount=fcr2_arena

(as reference https://steamcommunity.com/linkfilter/?url=https://forums.cdprojektred.com/index.php?threads/user-content-manager-cannot-detect-a-mod-heres-a-workaround.433/)

but it didn't work. I think i'm very close, but still...

Any suggestions?

Music playback weirdly depending on application focus while sound effects work

I am playing Banished (GOG version) on ubuntu 20.04

Launching it with a fresh wine install worked out of the box.

The catch: Sound effects are perfectly audible but music only plays if the focus magically makes it happen. I.E.: If i launch the game, set windowed mode and then click on my File manager window for example to take the focus away from the game and start clicking back and forth between Banished and my File manager then sometimes the music will be playing while the focus is on Banished and sometimes Banished will stay silent when regaining focus. (Banished consistently gets muted when losing focus.)

Now i've read a few posts about people having issues with the music or sound in general when running this game through wine but seeing as the music itself is able to be played back on my setup i feel like there must be something else going on.

How can i go about debugging this issue and finding the actual crux?

Hexen II Native

Picked up Hexen II in a GOG sale and found a great engine to play it native in Linux

FTEQW (triptohell.info)
https://fte.triptohell.info/downloads

https://youtu.be/lOSNTT4NlcM

I still had to install Hexen II in PlayOnLinux to install the game, but all I had to do was download fteqw64, move it to the Hexen II folder and launch with Terminal. Now I have more OpenGL widescreen options, lighting option and more... kinda like GZDoom

Wine: Steam Mac: Is there anyway I can open the properties window for a game without the web browser working?

I'm having some problems with TF2, which I installed through WINE on my Mac since I'm running Big Sur, and I want to be able to Verify the Integrity of the Game Files, but since I can't use the Web Browser, the properties window won't open. Is there anyway I can fix this?

Lutris does crash on start: File not found in load_dxvk_versions() (Ubuntu, Intel UHD605)

Hey everyone, I'm kind of stuck getting lutris to work, since it always crashs when i try to start it. Crash report tells me that the load_dxvk_versions() function crashes. This feels kinda weird because my UHD605 doesnt support vulkan at all. Is Vulkan necessary for lutris? Can I disable it? Couldnt really find a config file.

Need help choosing a new monitor. Should I get a Freesync monitor, or one with a higher resolution/refresh rate?

Hello everyone! I'm needing some help choosing a new monitor. I'm wondering if I should consider getting a Freesync monitor, or if I should instead focus on a higher resolution or refresh rate?

My gaming rig specs:

  • Ryzen 5 1600AF cpu (oc'd to 3.5ghz)
  • RX 5500 XT 8gb gpu
  • 16gb DDR4 ram
  • BenQ RL2455HM (24" screen, 1920x1080p@60hz, 1ms response time)

What I want out of a gaming monitor:

  • Budget of $100-$200 usd
  • I'm fine with 1080p or 1440p, not interested in 4K yet as it's too expensive and I doubt my rig could handle it
  • Freesync at 60hz or plain vsync at 120/144 hz? ( <-- This is the real question)

Any particular monitor recommendations welcome!

EternalModInjector - Shell Edition - You can now install Doom Eternal mods on Linux

Almost two months ago, I made a post on /r/linux_gaming explaining how to install DE mods on Linux by using a Windows VM. The only thing stopping mods from running was the batch file required to load them as it used command extensions, which aren't supported by Wine.

I was planning to make a shell conversion, but a busy schedule(and overall lazyness) prevented that from happening. Thankfully, that's changed and now the file is complete.

Github

Gitlab

Special thanks to /u/PowerBall253. He reached out to me earlier this week and knew nothing about shell(just batch), but I can't stress enough how much I appreciate his help. This project would've stayed in limbo had he not reached out. My schedule was still a mess so I couldn't contribute as much as I wanted, but, thanks to him, we got it working in less than a week. Seriously, it's impressive how fast he picked up on shell. By the end I was more of the research and testing guy than an actuall contributor.

Also, special thanks to the batch files creator Zwip-Zwap Zapony for helping us with a lite version of the file so we can get it done faster. It may have been scrapped, but it did put us on the right track.

We'll continue maintaining the project and updating it with subsequent DE updates.

Note: both of us ran Manjaro(his Arch installation proved Linus right about nvidia), so any feedback on other distros is welcome.

You can download mods from NexusMods or DoomEternalMods.com

I finally got rid of NVIDIA. Best decision I could take.

Since I built this PC on 2013, I've been using a 660 GTX NVIDIA card. It was a good card back in the day, nowadays a bit outdated, but it is still working and I didn't need a more powerful card for my gaming needs. What I needed, on the other hand, was to get rid of the NVIDIA driver, which has been working awfully with my linux system for years - and more so recently.

This week I finally got a 5500 XT AMD card. After all the comments I've read about AMD graphics being the better option, I really was expecting things to improve. And oh yeah, they did. I couldn't be happier!

Here's a list of issues I had with NVIDIA, which a I don't have anymore after switching to AMD (some of them I didn't even know there were due to NVIDIA lol):

  • No screen tearing. I've been trying to solve the screen tearing with NVIDIA drivers for years, but no workaround worked for me. It was a delight to see that AMD drivers simply didn't have any screen tearing out of the box.
  • Resolution on terminal mode is the native monitor resolution. I didn't even know this was possible.
  • OpenGL compositor doesn't crash after a while (Plasma/Kwin). I can finally turn on composition without fear.
  • My second monitor resolution (connected via VGA-to-DVI adapter) is recognized right. With NVIDIA, I had to manually add the values to a Xorg configuration file (it worked with nouveau tho, but see below).
  • Steam's Big Picture menu doesn't flash to black while on Remote Play.
  • Recently, the system froze randomly - usually while playing or streaming. This surely was due to NVIDIA, because it didn't happen to me since I changed the card.
  • I can just use LIBRE drivers, which I'm proud of. Every time I tried to use nouveau, my system froze. Additionally, I saved some space uninstalling the propietary driver.
  • Overall the system is more responsive and loads faster (although this can also be due to the graphics card just being better - I transitioned from a 2GB VRAM graphics card to a 8 GB VRAM one...).

This has been a lot of QoL changes to my life. While the NVIDIA card worked, I wasn't obtaining the most out of it. Now I see what I was missing. I can try things like sway, expect things to just work without manual intervention, and stop avoiding things that didn't even work before. This is heaven.

What Remains of Edith Finch (GOG Version) does not run due to outdated shader model

I tried both the lutris installer and regular wine (with vcrun 2015 and dxvk) and both times when I try to launch the game it gives me an error saying Global Shader Model is outdated, possibly because my gpu doesn't support Shader Model 5. However, my GPU supports even Shader Model 6.4 and the game runs under windows.

Steam not working via wine

hello i have a question regarding this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0lddZcC9PE&list=WL&index=2&t=189s i tried installing the windows steam using this method so i could play a only-windows game but it doesn't work everything is alright till the application converts via wine it doesn't have the steam icon but the application default one and when i try to open it it quits almost immediately not showing anything. I also tried doing this with older version of steam but i get the same result. Normally i'd ask the author of the video but they seem no longer active on that account. I have mac os mojave and macbook air 2017. If this method is no longer working do you know any that do work?

PipeWire audio is so good now

I have tried PipeWire again now with the 0.3.19 release. 0.3.18 was somewhat flunky I had duplicated audio devices and other issues, making the overall effort not worth it.

Now, with 0.3.19, Linux audio for me is better than ever before, no exaggeration. Let me tell you the reasons and why I'm posting it in /r/linux_gaming.

First off, if you're happy with Pulseaudio and it leaves nothing to be desired for you, there's no immediate reason to switch. It isn't bad or obsolete.

What makes PipeWire so good for me is the possibility to use the JACK tools to reroute audio freely. No virtual sinks, no arcane shell commands. Just fire up catia and connect sources and sinks as you see fit. Easy as pie. You want to stream a game, but exclude your VoIP audio? Just reroute your game's and maybe other outputs into OBS and you're good to go. Literally no thinking required. I have not noticed any latency using this method while it's always been a pain with pulse both to remember the proper commands, setting the outputs and fighting the latency. All of that is history with PipeWire.

In addition to those goodies, it just works. My bluetooth audio works, my Pulseaudio applications work (this includes my WINE applications, both input and output), everything is as expected. Browser, audio players, you name it. PipeWire has made tremendous progress the last months and it's not slowing down. Kudos to all contributors. I can unironically say that this is the future of Linux audio.

I don't know if there's a solution for networked audio like Pulse has, I don't use something like that anymore.

If your repository has the latest version, you should give it a try.

CrossOver on Mac: Games Load but Only Show Black Screen

I'm using CrossOver version 20.0.2 on Mac OS and noticed a lot of games load but only a black screen appears. The menus appear and there is sound, but nothing actually appears when I'm in the game.

After some trial and error it seems that this only happens in games that use Unreal Engine 4.

I purchased CrossOver as an easy way to play two Windows only games on my Mac: A Plague Tale and Witcher 3. Both of these games work perfectly and perform extremely well.

I've set the bottle to use DXVK for D3D11 and performance enhanced graphics. I've also tried installing various dependencies (DX3D for games/C++/etc.) but can't get any UE4 engine games to work.

This is not a huge deal for me as CrossOver is working well with the games I wanted to play, but it would also be nice if I could load some others sometime.

Any ideas as how to fix this?

I'm running MacOS Big Sur on a 2016 MBP (non touch bar) with 16GB of RAM and a Radeon RX580 8GB eGPU.

Cross platform remote play?

Hello all.

My friends all play on windows, and we wanted to play some local multiplayer games together (remotely). Steam remote play works, but only for a select few titles.

I also know of software like TeamViewer, vnc, etc. But they don't have controller support, and are obviously not designed with gaming in mind.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I should add, I use arch (btw). Nvidia GPU (using proprietary drivers), intel CPU. Don't think the exact specs matter, but if they do, lemme know and I'll post.

Mac Crossover error occurs when running Windows Steam -- Dark Souls 2 and 3

Hey all, I truly apologize for being a super noob at this, but I recently bought Dark Souls 2 and 3 on Steam-- they're both only playable on Steam for Windows and I've tried many many many times at this point to get it working using Wine and even the trial version of Crossover for Mac (to no avail). I feel like I'm bashing my head against the wall here.

I cannot find solutions to the error log that pops up. If y'all can help me I'd be extremely grateful. This same error happens when I tried same deal on PlayOnMac and Crossover both. Obviously they're both version of Wine, but I was hoping that Crossover would be an easy fix.

Here's what happens when I try to hit Play for either game through Steam:

Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x00000000 in 64-bit code (0x000000014095825b).

Looking for a MUD Client like zMUD

So, probably not what most Linux gamers are thinking, but I'm looking for a mudding client that is similar to zmud/cmud. Currently using mudlet and it's not pleasant. Lots of folks recommend gmud, but it's not available on Linux that I'm aware of. (Using Arch, naturally with AUR.)

I'm mostly looking for color 'triggers'; a CLI/command line that is separated, that is, it isn't typed in with the rest of the text (mudlet also shows my pw too); bindings where I can use my numpad to move; and similar old zmud options. I don't need any 'reaction' triggers (as they're not allowed on the mud I'm on) or mapping options, just I guess something *like* zmud. That being said, I have an old CD somewhere around here, which would require me to reinstall my DVD player...

Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions, I'd be glad to check it out!

Thanks in advance.

Anybody got PS5 DualSense Controller Motion working?

Pretty much what the title says.

If so, what are you using it with. Over Bluetooth or cable. Any software to install, setup etc.

I'm trying to get it to work with Dolphin-Emu but so far having no luck and all I get from google is stuff like this;

Sony Publishes An Official Linux Driver For PlayStation 5 DualSense Controller

I'm running Manjaro on Kernel 5.9

Everything else works, it's just the motion and I don't know how to test it.

Tried via steam and also installed from the AUR hid-playstation-dkms to see if it works.

Would also like to see if it will work in X4 Foundations.

How can I Make ROBLOX Run Faster on a Virtual Machine (VM)?

Hello! I'm trying to run Roblox on a virtual machine since I'm wanting to move to a Linux OS soon. I've managed to get 50-60 fps (feels more like 25-40) on Arsenal; however, sometimes I get lag spikes that last a few hundred milliseconds and happen every 10-30 seconds. I have my graphics at the lowest settings.

Is there any way to make it run faster? I have 1gb VRAM allocated, 4gb RAM allocated, and 2 cores allocated. I'm using VMWare Workstation Player 16.

Regarding cs:go with r5 4500u

First of all, i didn't expect it to work so easily. I had assumed that i would have to tweak a lot to get games working. The only thing i had to do was to add -nojoy in launch options. Thank you valve for doing so much for gaming in linux.

My specs: Hp envy x360 Ryzen 5 4500U 8gb RAM(512 MB allocated as VRAM)

PopOS 20.10

I installed cs:go , with default settings(1080p , all high) , i am getting 30-40 fps. I reduced the resolution ro 900p and only saw a 5 fps boost.

I use the stock driver , should i be using amdgpu for better performance.

Is there a sweet spot i can configure to get 45+ fps consistently. I just play casually and would like it to be pretty as well.

Why do Launchers like Lutris and Gamehub create other executables instead of configuring the existing one?

So I tried some Game Launchers,and a thing they share is,that instead of configuring the base files from the added game,it creates a new one and launches that,why is that so?

I mean cause of that I have to delete the old normal shortcuts and add new ones every single time.

All tabs show nothing but a grey box

Installed wine-staging + windows steam on my linux machine, and everything seemed to work fine until steam actually booted after the install widget completed. Every tab I click just shows a grey box, meaning there's no way for me to navigate the app. If anyone knows a solution for this, it would be much appreciated!

Assetto corsa install fails

I would like to ask some help regarding a protontricks installation. I cant really make sense of the errors that I get.

On ProtonDB I saw that many people could run the game by installing .net with protontricks.

When I tried to run the command "protontricks 244210 dotnet472", the .net installer started but it could not finish the installation successfully.

When the installation fails, I get the following message.

0120:err:msi:execute_script Execution of script 0 halted; action L"[C:\\windows\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v4.0.30319\\;C:\\windows\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v4.0.30319\\ISymWrapper.dll;78168<=>S-1-5-21-0-0-0-1000<=>{F5B09CFD-F0B2-36AF-8DF4-1DF6B63FC7B4}]CA_InstallAssemblyDef.3643236F_FC70_11D3_A536_0090278A1BB8" returned 1603
0120:err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"InstallFinalize" returned 1603

Before that, a bunch of times the following message is printed with different dotnet versions.

You are using a 64-bit WINEPREFIX. Note that many verbs only install 32-bit versions of packages. If you encounter problems, please retest in a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX before reporting a bug.

there is no .wine directory on my macbook even after running games on wine

First of all: I use Winebottler to run stuff on Wine.

Hi! I installed a game with Winebottler but it won't let me save, it displays an error message saying "Directory 'Z:\\Save\' couldn't be created (error 5: access denied.)", so I thought I could either change where the Z drive is located so that it'll have permissions, or make the save folder myself. I searched where does Wine store its files on google and literally everybody says it's on ~/.wine, wich is just not true, at least on my computer. I've searched everywhere with the terminal, even activated the locate command, and it just won't find the damn .wine folder. People have said that it gets automatically created once you run an app with wine, but I've done that many times already and even finished a different game like this, so there HAS to be a prefix somewhere on the damn computer, but for some cryptic reason it's not where it should be or doesn't have the same name as everyone else's.

I can't get Hades to work on OpenSuse with proton.

When i go to protondb Hades has platinum rating. Everybody is able to get it to run flawlessly. When i try to run it using DirectX I get a black screen with no sound and nothing happens. With Vulkan I get an error message saying (Vulkan initialisation has failed. Unable to use Vulkan. Please launch executable with DirectX. Hades did not detect graphical device. Please make sure one is connected and has up to date drivers.)

My GPU is connected and Mesa drivers are installed. This happens with proton version 4.11-13, 5.0-10, 5.13-4 and Experimental. I can play Bayonetta and Red Alert 3 with v4.11 without any problems. So I don't see how driver is the problem.

I have OpenSuse Leap 15.2 with kernel 5.3.18 and Mesa is 19.3.4

Does anyone have similar problems?

Steam proton seems to use OpenGL?

Currently I have two protons installed, official proton that comes from steam and proton-GE. I was trying to get DXVK hud working but it seems to work only when I run the game with proton-GE. However I can get steam proton to display Gallium HUD, which works only for OpenGL applications? What is really happening there?

I run proton with proton run game.exe from the command line with DXVK_HUD=1 set in the environment. The game is "A hat in time". Running from proton-GE I also get DXVK log so I can confirm it runs with Vulkan, but steam proton does not print any logs even with PROTON_LOG=1 set.

Help with vkBasalt

I'm trying to get vkBasalt to work, and while it does apply an extremely light sharpening effect I can toggle on and off, that's it. I've tried editing the conf file, but it changes nothing, I've tried building one from scratch, and it still does nothing. I attempted to add a few reshade effects but got nowhere with that. How the heck am I supposed to get this to work? I've already read the readme and it doesn't make a whole lot of sense (I am a linux noob, mostly).

In case it's pertinent, I'm on Manjaro and installed from the AUR. Current hardware configuration is nVidia 1080, Intel 6700k, 16gb RAM.

Need help running an obscure old game (jarkanoid3) for my parents

Back in windows xp times my parent loved the game jarkanoid 3 (available for free here) but since they updated to windows 7 the game no longer work on windows, I though that I could get it to work on linux but for now I have found no luck. I installed it by running the executable through wine, the installation process works fine but then, when I launch the game executable through wine it doesn't work with no particularly meaningful error message (as far as I have found). I then tried to launch it with lutris and the lastest wine version it didn't launch at all, then with proton version 5.0, 4.11 and 3.16 with no difference between them.

The only error message I have is

0009:err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {e1211353-8e94-11d1-8808-00c04fc2c602} not registered 0009:err:ole:create_server class {e1211353-8e94-11d1-8808-00c04fc2c602} not registered 0009:err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object {e1211353-8e94-11d1-8808-00c04fc2c602} could be created for context 0x5

I see a lot of missing files here, so I tried running sudo lutris
in case it was a permissions issue, which yielded this.

sudo: lutris: command not found 

Suffice it to say I am pretty dumbfounded. As far as I can tell, wine is installed correctly, as I am able to run other programs with it flawlessly. I think DXVK is correctly installed, but the only way I am aware of checking is by running the vulkaninfo
command.

Any help would be much appreciated.

GRUB not recognizing high poll rate keyboard

So I recently go a Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 mechanical keyboard with brown switches. Prior to that I had a logitech G15 (the original) that I have had since, idk, 2005 haha. I duel boot Manjaro and Windows 10. I've noticed that if the keyboard is not set to BIOS mode, that when I boot, GRUB is not recognizing the keyboard and I cannot make a selection. Is there a BIOS setting or GRUB setting I can change to ensure it is recognized when it is set to a higher polling rate? Its just a PITA if I forget and I get stuck booting to one OS or the other.

I'm also using a USB switch (2.0), as I use the kb+m and Monitor for work as well. I've been coming up short on the internet except for remember to keep the keyboard in legacy mode. I did not have these issues with my old keyboard so it is definitely related to the high poll rate of this keyboard.

Thanks in advance :)

Steam link - Hardware encoding issue with Nvidia GPU

When I check "enable hardware encoding" in remote play settings, the stream is really slow and laggy, way more than when it's unchecked. But I'd like to play with a better quality and even at "balanced" I start to get some lag in software mode. Only the "fast" mode is okay. I'm running ubuntu 20.04 with Nvidia RTX 2070 Super. My bandwidth souldn't be a problem either, I got 100mb/s in network test through steam link.

I'm streaming to a raspberry pi 4B

I also had to set the number of encoding threads to 1 since when I set it to auto or 2+ it creates some lag.

If some linux folks are around, I'd appreciate some help to figure out how to get the hardware encoding working properly.

Thanks

I keep getting the warning: Haswell Vulkan support is incomplete. Is this a bug, or is it something I can fix?

Recently installed Diablo II, running it through Lutris. Initially, I couldn't run the game at all, but I got it to work by disabling Esync. I don't know if that's related. I could try forcing it to run on one core.

Does Origin work well on Steam using Proton?

Origin is/has been notorious with problems on Wine and you have to pray to the gaming gods every time you spend what may be hours downloading a game only to have it fail on install and then hours searching to resolve the issue, if you can at all. Is the Steam/Origin experience any better? I'm almost tempted to re-buy on Steam if it is.

Graphics Tablets

So I recently bought myself an xp pen g640 because it apparently is supported by the digimend drivers - the tablet works - but... The smoothing and delay of the inputs is huge (the tab itself shouldn't have a lot if any hardware smoothing). When I try to draw a line in krita it still moves a couple millimetres when I stopped moving the pen - using this to play osu! does not work in any way. When I hover the pen over the tablet it kinda works better but still worse than my other tablet (intuos s which has hw smoothing and is ok but noticeable) but as soon as you put the tip onto the tablet it's really bad.

Tried stuff from thepoon's guide as well but I still have that input delay and "after smoothing"

I already bound the tablet to the wacom driver settings (they work) but I still have the problem of the latency. I didn't really get anywhere with tinkering around with xinput either.

Does someone have an idea on how to fix this? (must be somewhere but I don't know where to look anymore)

(OS: Kubuntu 20.04)

GTA V -- Epic Games + Lutris -- Support for Windows XP and Windows Vista has ended

Hi all,

I've purchased the game from Epic Games and tried this:

https://lutris.net/games/grand-theft-auto-v/

and I get this:
"Sorry, your current Windows OS isn't supported and Support for windows XP and Windows Vista has ended. Please visit Rockstar Games Support"

I've seen others with the same in issue in the lutris page.
The game installs via Epic Games launcher correctly but when trying to launch shows the following

"Sorry, your current Windows OS isn't supported and Support for windows XP and Windows Vista has ended. Please visit Rockstar Games Support"

and then:
"Sorry, your current Windows OS isn't supported"
and finally:

"Unable to launch game, please verify your game data"

I've tried winecfg from terminal and it is set to Windows 10. (the system one, not sure how to change the specific for the game)

Also, tried a new modded PlayGTAV.exe but did not help

Tried few reinstalls but did not find a solution.

Any assistance much appreciated

Thank you in advance

Overwatch crashing presumably at the final stages of shader compiling

Hi, I just installed overwatch on my system and it runs surprisingly well for my craptop, even while shader compiling. I messed in the testing areas and tutorials while it compiled and joined a deathmatch for a bit. I messed for about an hour. Then, the game crashed. Since then, every time I boot the game, it presumably continues shader compiling (there's a text on the bottom left that says so) and crashes about 30 seconds later. My guess is that it's crashing at a certain point in the shader compilation process, that's why I could play for an hour before but it takes only 30 seconds now to crash. I installed the game with the manual lutris script and I provided the overwatch setup installer that I got from battle net. The installation went smoothly and without issues. I got a "general error" crash at the game startup a couple of times, but a bit of insistnace made it seemingly go away. I tried using the following wine versions: lutris-wine 5.0/5.7/6.0, all behaved the same. I tried esync and fsync, both behaved the same. So, I'm kinda puzzled. I'll leave my full system information below, but as a summary, here it is:

GPU: Intel HD 4000
CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m
RAM: 8GB DDR3
OS: Manjaro KDE

I'm aware that my GPU has incomplete Vulkan support, but hey, if I was playing the game just fine, I don't see why that should be an issue. Here's my complete system info. Also, here's the log that lutris generated. I think the important part is this bit here:

MESA-INTEL: error: ../mesa-20.3.1/src/intel/vulkan/anv_batch_chain.c:1856: execbuf2 failed: Bad address (VK_ERROR_DEVICE_LOST)
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.avail/05-reset-dirs-sample.conf", line 6: unknown element "reset-dirs"

Trying to play TF2 messes up a lot...

So I installed Wine and did the 64 bit thing for my Mac so I could play steam games TF2 and other games Mac wouldn't let me play, and it actually worked pretty well. Steam looked good and it wasn't slow, pretty much the same speed as the regular Steam. I booted up TF2, and it was looking good. Off the bat, I noticed that I couldn't see anything but TF2. If I lowered or raised the volume, I wouldn't see it go up, it would just happen. It took a bit longer to load in, and then I started to see the real problems. every time I would click a button, ANY button, it would freeze for a couple seconds and then continue. The music would replay a second over and over during these freezing times, and it would get very annoying. I then tried to go to the my windows menu by pressing F3 so I can go into Safari and search something up, but no matter how many times I pressed it, it never worked. I couldn't even move my mouse to the bottom to see my dock. I tried to go into the options to see if I could click anything to make this work, but it froze, and it didn't unfreeze. At this point, the same note in the song played over and over again while I frantically moved my mouse around to see if I could click any button to get me out of that hell but no, the only thing I could do was restart my entire computer. I have restarted my computer twice already. I just want to play TF2...

Should games share Wineprefixes?

Hi, sorry if this was asked before, i didn't even know how to phrase the question.

Hypothetic situation:

If i wanted to install a Blizzard game, i need their launcher, so i would install it with Lutris and then add the game on top of that, afther that i have one wineprefix with both the launcher and the game installed.

What if i wanted to install another game? Does it go on the same wineprefix? Do i need to create different prefixes for the launcher and the games? Was it wrong to install both on the same place?

I believe the same questions applies to Origin, Epic Store (in case anyone uses it) and GOG if they ever release their launcher on Linux.

Thanks!

How can I show terminal logs with winetricks?

Hello, I used Winetricks to install custom dll and/or Windows components, however, my app is crashing and I would like to debug it with terminal logs.

I know that this command:

WINEPREFIX=~/.wineprefix wine $HOME'/games/game.exe'

is very useful to gather WINE logs, but unfortunately I can't use it for wineprefixes created by Winetricks.

proton 5.X and lutris emulators don't launch

hi, a while ago, proton 5.x and emulators on lutris launching games

i checked on proton db, and the games got gold or better

i tried running the game in lutris, the same problem happened

tried proton-GE-cutom, same problem happened

tried PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 %command%, didn't fix the problem

normal wine works

proton versions before 5.X work

launching the emulators them selves, not through lutris, works completely fine

my disk is EXt4

Running a mod for a steam game on Arch Linux

So I recently bought Nier: Automata. And by recently I mean this morning. I'm enjoying the game, but the controls due to a bad port are awful as it is meant for a controller. I unfortunately do not have a controller. So I did some searching and found a mod called NAIOM. It claims to overhaul the controls which is exactly what I'm looking for. The problem, however, is that the mod requires you to use a .exe file to configure controls. I'm not the best with arch so my only idea was to use wine, but when running it using wine nothing happens. Is there a way for me to run the file properly? And if so, will it even matter?

How good is Linux for indie games?

As above.

How does Linux fare in comparison to other OS platforms such as Android and Mac when it comes to game developer support? At the same time, how healthy is Linux gaming in comparison to console ecosystems (such as the indie friendly Switch)?

Is there a chance that Linux might make significant inroads within the next few years?

What is the best game controller for Linux as of 2021?

Hi, I have some games on Steam that work better with controller (to name few: Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth, Dark Souls 3 and Super Meat Boy). I heard that DualSense is going to have official driver in the kernel with all of its features (except adaptive triggers for which Linux itself doesn't have support). The Steam Controller is looking great as well but it's getting hard to get since it's not being sold anymore and quite pricy. There are many more other but I do not know much about them.

Do you use any and if you do, which one? Do you have any recommendations?

Hey fellow Linux gamers! I was just wondering, since the PS5 runs on Linux, do you think AAA game developers will start working on supporting Linux more? What are your thoughts/opinions on that?

I was thinking since the PS5 runs Linux, developers of AAA games will have to do Linux support if they want their games to run on the PS5, which should in turn automatically add native Linux support right? Or we could even install the PS5 distro on a PC and have some kinda hackplaystation?

StarCraft Remastered crashes randomly during game

Hi folks,

I've been trying to seek any solution to my problem, but I didn't succeed to it.

When I play StarCraft Remastered, often the game crashes randomly during the game.

It only stops and I go back to my "desktop".

I'm using Lutris to run the game and I still don't know where to go to check what's wrong with the game. I tried to use different version of DXVK, Wine version, etc., still the same. I've tried to downgrade the kernel, same issue.

Here's the log from "Show wine logs" in the Lutris app.

https://pastebin.com/fr6CY0bU

Here's the log from the file StarCraft_d3d11.log located in
/home/jp/Games/battlenet/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/StarCraft/x86_64/

https://pastebin.com/dDHDgMXW

Here's the output of the command "vulkaninfo"

https://pastebin.com/YWj1ttgT

Do you guys have any idea?

I'm running on Arch Linux with kernel :

In /home/dan/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Proton 5.13 I tried running STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH=/home/dan/.proton ./proton run ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Satisfactory/FactoryGame.exe and I got this output:

ERROR: ld.so: object 'libgtk3-nocsd.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored.

I can't figure out how to fix kernal32.dll. Proton game files have been reinstalled and verified. apt removeed and apt installed wine again. Restarted steam, logged out then in, and rebooted the whole machine.

How do I fix wine: could not load kernel32.dll, status c0000135?

nVidia Unix 460 Release!!! Long Lived Branch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=NVIDIA-460.32.03-Linux

https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/168347/en-us

https://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/460.32.03/README/index.html

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA


Release highlights since 460.27.04: With Official Vulkan Ray-Tracing

Added support for the following GPUs:

A40 T500 A100-SXM4-80GB Added a new NoInterlacedModes token to the NVIDIA X drivers ModeValidation option, to allow preventing interlaced modes from being validated. Refer to the X Config Options appendix of the driver README for further details.

Fixed a bug that could cause X clients to crash when closing display connections to the X server.

Fixed a bug that could cause the X server to configure DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport displays in an inconsistent order.

Fixed an interaction problem with 5.4 and newer Linux kernels that caused a performance regression when allocating system memory.


NVIDIA today released the 460.32.03 Linux graphics driver as their first stable release in the 460 driver series.

Back before the holidays NVIDIA published the 460.27.04 beta Linux driver with firmed up Vulkan ray-tracing support and many other changes. The NVIDIA 460.32.03 driver out today is the stable version of that prior beta driver.

Thus with today's NVIDIA 460.32.03 driver are mostly of the previously noted changes including Vulkan ray-tracing in KHR form, NVIDIA RTX A6000 series support, Reverse PRIME Bypass, various other new Vulkan extensions added, VDPAU video acceleration improvements, experimental S0ix suspend-to-idle support, and many bug fixes. - Added support for the following GPUs: RTX A6000 - Fixed a bug that could cause detailed timing information for displays with a large number of detailed timings to be truncated in the X log. - Fixed a bug that prevented scaled display resolutions configured via the nvidia-settings control panel from being reported by RandR. - Fixed a bug with the SLI Mosaic Mode configuration dialog in nvidia-settings that left displays enabled when they were not needed in the selected configuration. - Added support for RandR rotation and reflection while using an NVIDIA-driven display as a PRIME Display Offload sink. - Added support for "Reverse PRIME Bypass", an optimization that bypasses the bandwidth overhead of PRIME Render Offload and PRIME Display Offload in conditions where a render offload application is fullscreen, unredirected, and visible only on a given NVIDIA-driven PRIME Display Offload output. Use of the optimization is reported in the X log when verbose logging is enabled in the X server. - Add support for the VK_KHR_acceleration_structure extension. - Add support for the VK_KHR_ray_tracing_pipeline extension. - Add support for the VK_KHR_ray_query extension. - Add support for the VK_KHR_pipeline_library extension. - Add support for the VK_KHR_deferred_host_operations extension. - Removed the MetaMode string truncation warning for older X Servers when saving the X Configuration file from nvidia-settings. - Add support for the VK_NV_fragment_shading_rate_enums extension. - Fixed a bug where copying from an X11 pixmap to an RGB overlay window would exhibit corruption. - Fixed an issue with VK_ACCESS_MEMORY_READ_BIT and VK_ACCESS_MEMORY_WRITE_BIT when used as part of a render pass. - Add support for the VK_KHR_fragment_shading_rate extension. - Add support for the VK_KHR_shader_terminate_invocation extension. - Reduce host memory consumption for descriptor memory in cases where the pNext chain contains a structure of type - VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_DESCRIPTOR_SET_VARIABLE_DESCRIPTOR_COUNT_ALLOCATE_INFO. - Increased the default size for new OpenGL/Vulkan Shader Disk Cache location to 1024MB. Note that caches with paths containing "/.nv/ will continue to use the previous default of 128MB unless the size is manually overridden. For more information see the "OpenGL Shader Disk Cache" section in the "Specifying OpenGL Environment Variable Settings" chapter of the README. - Changed the default location for new OpenGL/Vulkan Shader Disk Caches. If the location is not manually overridden and a cache is detected in the previous default location, that location will be used instead of the new default location. For more information see the "OpenGL Shader Disk Cache" section in the "Specifying OpenGL Environment Variable Settings" chapter of the README. - Add support for the VK_EXT_shader_image_atomic_int64 extension. - Add support for the VK_KHR_copy_commands2 extension. - Allow importing cached memory via VK_EXT_external_memory_host. - Removed support for the following deprecated frame lock NV-CONTROL attributes: NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_MASTER NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_SLAVES NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_MASTERABLE NV_CTRL_FRAMELOCK_SLAVEABLE - Default AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration to True such that the NVIDIA X driver succeeds when launching the X server even if there are no display devices connected. - RRGetCrtcInfo will now return Rotate_0 instead of 0 as the active rotation for disabled CRTCs. - Improved the NVIDIA VDPAU implementation of VdpVideoSurfaceGetBitsYCbCr and VdpVideoSurfacePutBitsYCbCr when using planar or semi-planar formats. This helps applications that transfer data between VDPAU video surfaces and system memory. - Added initial experimental support for S0ix-based system suspend (suspend-to-idle). This feature is platform and GPU dependent, so the feature will be disabled by default. To enable this feature, refer to the 'powermanagement' section of the README. - Fixed an issue where Vulkan applications would fail to initialize if the connected X11 Server did not expose support for GLX. - Improved the memory allocation strategy in nvidia-modeset.ko to reduce the likelihood of out-of-memory errors, which typically manifest as "page allocation failure" messages in the kernel log. - Added a new "NoInterlacedModes" token to the NVIDIA X driver's "ModeValidation" option, to allow preventing interlaced modes from being validated. Refer to the "X Config Options" appendix of the driver README for further details. - Fixed a bug that could cause X clients to crash when closing display connections to the X server. - Fixed a bug that could cause the X server to configure DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport displays in an inconsistent order. - Fixed an interaction problem with 5.4 and newer Linux kernels that caused a performance regression when allocating system memory.

Running a wrapper again

So I'm using wineskin on my macbook air (Big Sur), and I'm trying to figure out how to run a wrapper again after I already went through the process of installing it. So I already installed the app and it opened and worked and all that, I closed it and now i'm trying to open it again. Do I install it all over again? or is there another way? Thank you!

Cyberpunk 2077 GPU hang "Failed to pin framebuffer" (mesa-git, RX 580)

(I know that tech support posts are usually not appreciated here, but hopefully this is detailed enough to be helpful to someone else as well)

I'm trying to get Cyberpunk 2077 running with Proton, but going to certain (most) places in the game causes the GPU to hang with this in dmesg:

amdgpu 0000:08:00.0: amdgpu: 0000000001ce2671 pin failed
[drm:dm_plane_helper_prepare_fb [amdgpu]] *ERROR* Failed to pin framebuffer with error -12

Essentially, I can load a save in simpler location (such as a non-detailed street or an apartment block) and the game runs fine, but the moment I go to a more complex location with more NPCs and lighting (like going down on an elevator from an apartment block), the game first slows down drastically (with neither CPU or GPU being at full usage) and then hangs the GPU (usually until I restart the display manager from ssh).

I know the game requires mesa-git, which I do have, and vulkaninfo reports VK_VALVE_mutable_descriptor as supported. I've also tested with stable mesa just to be sure, the issue is the same. I do not have AMDVLK or AMDGPU-PRO installed.

I've also tried capturing VKD3D logs, and the only lines that seem to appear as the issue occurs are:

224:fixme:d3d12_command_list_update_dynamic_state: Binding VBO with stride 9, but required alignment is 4.
204:warn:d3d12_pipeline_library_load_pipeline: Pipeline "-804275142" does not exist.

Distro: Fedora 33 (issue also appears on Arch with mesa-git from AUR)

Using Switch Pro Controller on steam games

Hi guys I bought a switch pro controller because I heard that steam does support this game pad. But then I cant seem to connect it properly. Steam does recognise the controller, but steam games do not.

I did a bunch of stuff that I dont even remember. At last I used this: https://github.com/TheWaveWarden/SwitchProConLinuxUSB

For once Steam recognised my controller as Xbox.. and the home button doesnt light up while it can still control the mouse.. And then when I restart steam it gets back to recognising it as switch pro controller, and I can click the buttons pretty well on the big picture.

All joysticks and buttons seems to work well on steam page&big picture. I can even control mouse on page outside steam by using pro controller.

But then when the game runs (overcooked 2, ultimate chicken horse...) they dont recognise my controller keys except the screenshot and home buttons. So weird. Is there anyway to fix this?

Can't launch games with Steam anymore (error at start)

Hi everyone!!

I'm playing on Manjaro Linux through Steam (SteamPlay, Proton) since August, everything run just fine till I got a kernel update, after that both of the two games I have give me an error after clicking on "play" button, loading, then crashing.

The first kernel causing this issue was 5.9.11-3-MANJARO, recent update to 5.10.2-2-MANJARO didn't fix it, the 'safe kernel' which were still be able to play the games was 5.8.(I don't remember it all tho)...
Kind people tried to help me here (where I've also found out others were having the same troubles), but I've tried every workaround and I'm still having the issue, and I'm not still sure of what's causing it. However -not being an expert of any kind so correct me if I'm mistaking- I guess kernel is definitely involved, since I've tried reinstall both Steam and the games and nothing happened, and I got this in an error log (full text at the end of the post):

kernelbase.dll caused an Unknown exception type (0x20474343)

in module kernelbase.dll at 0033:7b01193e.

Thank in advance to everyone willing to help me out of this!!

P.S.: Here it is the error.log file I got after Outer Wilds crashing on start-up: https://we.tl/t-IKITcSkNc1

Is there a specific place to keep an eye on regarding anticheat &amp; kernel driver support in Wine?

Perhaps a mailing list or person? Other than Guy1524, searching "anticheat" on this subreddit and https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2020/07/more-progress-on-easy-anti-cheat-in-wine-proton-coming I haven't been able to find much more specific info other than EAC working then not working and something to do with work on a memory mapper?

I ask this because I'm patiently waiting for the day that nProtect GameGuard (a anticheat that uses a kernel driver) works and I'd love to track progress on kernel drivers in Wine, if any.

I know that multiplayer doesn't work because of EAC but that doesn't bother me as I have no interest in online mp but if EAC is required for coop then it could be a problem.

Has anyone tried this? I am trying to avoid buying 2 copies if its not an option.

Thanks.

Monitor Options for Gaming on Linux?

Hey guys,

I'm curious what other Linux gamers are running for monitors and what limitations you have found with them on Linux.

I personally have been running a pair of 24" Dell 1080p/60hz IPS monitors for the last couple of months; they have been great for general desktop use, but they aren't exactly fast and I am really getting tired of smearing/tearing in games. I have an AMD GPU and setting "TearFree on" (basically global triple buffered vysnc) in my Xorg config stops the tearing, but FPS and other fast paced games feel floaty and slow as a result.

I wound up selling one of the monitors the other day with the intention of replacing it with a 24" 144hz TN display, but after some research I found out that FreeSync doesn't work with multiple monitors under X and that the refresh rate will be locked at 144hz on the desktop which will cause stuttering/tearing on the second, 60hz monitor.

I understand that MM FreeSync support and proper multiple refresh rate handling may be coming to Mutter in Gnome 40+, but then you have the overhead of Xwayland on top of the overhead of Proton to deal with. Until then, my understanding is that you have to physically unplug your second monitor for support under X since just disabling the display in xrandr apparently isn't enough.

I'm kind of at a lost as to what to do, but here are the options I am considering;

  • Go with a single 144hz FS display and give up the additional screen real estate for work
  • Go back to dual 60hz monitors and deal with the tearing
  • Switch to an 21:9 ultrawide with FreeSync (LG 29WN600-W maybe) and deal with games/programs that don't support the resolution.
  • Give up on trying to game on Linux and read more books

Thanks!

Geometry Dash will not run at the correct refresh rate with dual monitors.

I've just installed a new monitor, a Pixio PX248, using a DisplayPort 1.2 cable, alongside my existing Hanns G HL198 which is connected by an HDMI to VGA cable.

With Geometry Dash (but not other games) the game runs with a cap of 75 fps as if it were running on my HL198 monitor, rather than my new one. But I can get GD to run at 144 if the Pixio is the only monitor plugged in, but this isn't ideal as I want to be able to use two monitors when playing geometry dash (and I use the monitor's speakers for sound).

Other games I've tried (doom eternal, Totally Accurate Battle Simulator, Raft) work correctly following this command however GD still does not:

xrandr --output DP-0 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --rate 143.99 --output HDMI-0 --mode 1440x900 --rate 74.98 --left-of DP-0

In case it was a kernel or grub issue I tried passing the boot parameter 'video=DP-0:e video=HDMI-0:d' but it didn't seem to make a difference.

I tried a couple of things to do with the X server, but don't really know what is the right approach. So far I tried including the xrandr command in ~/.Xresources and ~/.xinitrc. Is this likely to be worth further investigation? I can provide X logs if that would help.

In summary, what I'm after is for both monitors to be in use but for GD (and everything else) to run at 144 Hz on the screen that supports it.

OS specs: Arch linux running with stock kernel version 5.10.4, nvidia drivers version 455.45

10fps in csgo

I have been playing csgo on ubuntu for over a week, and it mostly been fine. But yesterday I ran into a problem, where after finding a danger zone match, my game crashed. But it now doesn't matter, cause reinstalling steam and restarting pc fixed that. But now, after I reinstalled back my game, it is running at 10 fps in menu. My launch options are -full -novid, and fps_max is set to 400 in settings. I am using a GT 1030 gpu. The video settings seem to be the same as before, and in windows this usually yields ~120fps in menu

Weird Experience Playing ClusterTrucks with Wine.

I am doing Linux Gaming for quite a while and have played Doom 3 , Spelunky ,through wine quite a lot.

But recently I copied files from my brother's Clustertruck installation into my Linux Laptop.

I have installed wine and winetricks along with lutris which enables me to run the above games through wine.

When I run Clustertruck the biggest problem is massive stuttering of the game. I was thinking that my integrated gpu is stressed .But when checked I found that while the game is stuttering the gpu is at 2% usage and while running smoothly the GPU is at 40-60% usage.I seems to me wine is not using my iGPU sometimes for rendering.

Is there a solution to my problem, and Why?

My Specs:

Acer Aspire E5-575

RAM: 12GB

CPU:i3-6006U

iGPU:Intel HD Skylake 520

Motherboard:Acer Ironman_SK

Is CSGO's trusted launch broken on Linux?

I've recently been having issues with "substantially" and "significantly" lower trust factor warnings on CSGO, in spite of the fact that I feel like I've done nothing to deserve it. There was a big shift when I ran flatpak update and updated the flatpak'ed version of Steam, so I submitted an Issue to the manifest's github page.

https://github.com/flathub/com.valvesoftware.Steam/issues/689

As you can see, someone is claiming that CSGO's trusted launch option is a Windows-specific feature - which is lame as the option to check whether it's enabled returns true when I load the game.

Does anyone have any more information about this? I've emailed Valve, but not received any response.

proper way to install custom kernels ? (Liquorix, Zen, tkg etc)

is there a proper way to install custom kernels ? everytime i tried, even with the prebuilt ones i always ended up with problems (like the nvidia driver breaking or the OS not booting at all and sometimes just a bunch of errors fly while booting but no apparent side effects)

I'm planning on installing Artix Linux (Arch Linux but easy to install and without systemd) soon and i wish to have some more info, i'm also open to suggestion as to which kernel to use, as long as they have fsync and feral gamemode.

i'm also open to suggestion as to how to optimize and make life easier when running an nivida card, i have a GTX 1060 6GB and it likes to have issues with window compositing no matter what DE i use. (lag and low framerates)

and also to if i should use another sound driver than Pulseaudio, i've heard JACK is nice, but i want good audio without too much expense on the performance.

Should I install Doom Eternal on Ubuntu 20.04 or on Win 10?

I have both Ubuntu and Win 10 installed on my laptop (XMG Fusion 15, GTX1660Ti), I was looking online and I saw that there was a slight performance drop on Ubuntu with an AMD GPU, so I have a couple questions:

  1. Can I even run it on Ubuntu with a Nvidia GPU?
  2. Has anybody else compared the two and have they seen a drop in performance?
  3. Is there any advantage of installing it to Ubuntu?
  4. Now this one might be very dumb but I'm a massive idiot sometimes so bare with me. If I install it on an external hard drive can I just plug in the hard drive and play on both? (sry if this is dumb)

Thanks a lot in advance.

Are Bluetooth headphones viable for Linux gaming?

From what I gather, on Windows the latency of regular Bluetooth audio is so bad that even just watching movies is a problem -- but then Windows' Bluetooth stack is notoriously bad and I'm not even sure if it supports the more advanced audio codecs, like aptX [LL/HD] or Sony's LDAC. Linux' does, in theory.

So, does anyone (happily) play with BT headphones? Is anyone using aptX, especially LL, or LDAC successfully to bring latency down?

(I don't play anything remotely competitive, but having out-of-sync audio would bother me in, say, Witcher 3 as well.)

xbox gamepad stopped working with specific games

I don't even know if this is the right place to post this but since I couldn't find anything more explicit I assume there's no problem on asking this here.

So, I was playing Pummel Party using a xbox 360 gamepad, when the game crashed, I relaunched it as normal and somehow the controller stopped working.

Right after that I went on to test the controller on other games such as Stardew Valley, in which the controller was working just fine. It also doesn't seem to show anything out of the normal when I test it using jstest-gtk.

I am currently using kubuntu 20.04 and the kernel version is 5.4.0-58-generic

I already tried reinstalling the game but it just doesn't seem to work, if there is any fix for this I'd be grateful to know it. Thanks in advance.

Yet another Roblox on Linux post

So far, I've been able to get Roblox to run on my PC (Running Manjaro), but after around 5-10 seconds, I get kicked

So a few things I really wanna know.

  1. Why specifically can't Linux decode the anti-bot packet Roblox sends? (Like, how does it work)
  2. Is there a possibility that said packet could (eventually) be decoded by using Wine?
  3. How come scam bot developers are able to bypass the anti-bot check?

Not necessarily trying to find out how to fix it (mainly just wanna know what's happening with it), but a way to play Roblox on Linux would be great.

If any of y'all could help, it would be greatly appreciated, thanks :D

Cannot control the game after switching to different window and back

So i downloaded PTCGO and everything works just fine. Only exception being that when i switch to a different program (with Alt-Tab fe.) and then switch back, i cannot control it. The game doesn't freeze, it still runs but wherever i click, the game doesn't respond to it.

Another problem is that when i press the exit button in the game, the game just freezes. I don't think this is that big of a deal tho. I can always kill it from terminal.

So far i was responding to both instances by killing the program from terminal and starting it again. It's nothing gamebreaking but it is an inconvenience.

Oh and also, the game installer isn't the usual .exe file. It's an .msi. I don't know if it makes a difference but it might be worth mentioning.

Best DE/Distro to play CS:GO

Hi, I'm suffering from a huge CPU bottleneck on CS:GO, so I am trying to improve as much as possible the performance.

I currently use Ubuntu+GNOME, but I have read that this DE can be CPU heavy. My setup is an AMD A9-9400 APU with 8GB of ram, and the CPU is almost always above 90% of usage in game causing a bad average experience (I am aiming at 30 stable FPS to casually play with my friends).

Which DE or Distro do you recommand to me to improve a little bit the results ?

Thanks a lot

Running obvious infected warez with wine

So - this is more of a thought experiment. I was recently put in the position of using an application got from torrents - you know, the usual cracked application stuff. And of course it was for Windows and of course I ran it with wine. And I was reminiscing the times when I was scared like hell to run this kind of software on my normal Windows install. And I was wondering - what damage can this software do under wine? I see wine has the users folder mapped to home and everything - it has write access to it and all - but could it "infect" in a different way the wine runtime? Could it replace a "windows" dll that wine has with an infected one and do all kinds of nasty stuff? How protected am I from a normal windows virus if I execute the virus in wine?

Epic Games Launcher setup wizard ends prematurely, likely rundll32.exe related

I am trying to setup Epic Games Launcher but the setup Wizard gets ended prematurely. This is most likely related to the Wine Program Error window I get reading "The program rundll32.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. This can be caused a problem in the program or a deficiency in Wine. You may want to check the Application Database for tips about running this application." I uploaded a txt file of the details given by Wine: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mle7Mn3LLzRteGTXaeH-yFCtRbyJHU7h/view?usp=sharing I haven't been able to find a solution for this problem online.

Odriod and the rg351m

So I have a question and I dont know where to go to get this answered so here I am. Both the odriod go super and the rg351m are going to be on Linux. With that information would it be possible to share one micro sd card between them both so I dont have to worry about saves and such. Of course this is assuming that it is possible with the previous models.

Thank you for your time. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong place.

A friend gave me Tropico 6 as a gift. I'm happy but performance could be better

So I have a Gtx 1080 Asus with a core I7490k, with 32GB of Ram and I have to say that I'm kinda disappointed with how it runs. I installed in on an SSD too and it still is giving me FPS of around 30-67 depending on where the camera is zoomed in. Does Kalypso Media not care about Linux gamers? Also why only Windowed mode and windowed fullscreen?

Run a game on my dgpu and crash

Hello

I have a hybrid system with iGPU: Intel Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics and dGPU: AMD Radeon R7 M260, I configurated the system to work with amdgpu driver and my command line for execute games is: `DRI_PRIME=1 VK_ICD_FILENAMES=/usr/share/vulkan/icd.d/amd_icd64.json:/usr/share/vulkan/icd.d/amd_icd32.json [program]`

The game that I been testing is LoL on lutris/snap (crash before open the client for download) and I tested Darwing Project on Steam(crash after accept the Easy Anti-cheat pop-up) both use Vulkan but I search about my dgpu and there is no problem with the support, the only error(most warnings) on vulkaninfo are:

ERROR: [Loader Message] Code 0 : /usr/lib32/amdvlk32.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32 

ERROR: [Loader Message] Code 0 : /usr/lib32/libvulkan_intel.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32 ERROR: [Loader Message] Code 0 : /usr/lib32/libvulkan_radeon.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32 MESA-INTEL: warning: Haswell Vulkan support is incomplete

And I know that Intel Haswell is not full supported that the main reason I use my AMD card.

Basically the title. I have tried both lutris-6.0-rc1-x86_64, Proton 5.13, and Proton Experimental and nothing worked. Is there something I am doing wrong?

Basically I am asking: what settings do I need to have to get the game running?

Sharing a fix to make laptop touchpads usable once again for playing 1st person shooters (aiming, mouselook, shots not being registered)

I have good news! I can play 1st person shooters on the touchpad once again!
I can finally use a product that I spent good money on! What a concept! LOL

I knew that something was off, but I couldn't pinpoint what it was...
Took me almost 2 months of fiddling around with my new laptop but I eventually found linux commands to "fix" my touchpad and now I can play 1st person shooters on it again. There's the xinput command but there's also a less documented one out there, the synclient command (special fine tune settings for the synaptics driver)
With the synclient command, I was able to disable right-click when I have two fingers resting in the touchpad (example: you are running and aiming in game, and you try to press the fire button at the same time... it's likely that your fire action will not be registered by the mousepad, it will recognize it as right-click instead)
And also reduced the "size" of the right-click button (it is a button-less touchpad, buttons are virtual, defined by software)
These were the commands, for anyone interested:

xinput set-prop 11 300 1, 1, 2  

synclient RightButtonAreaLeft=2100  

Mouse acceleration is irrelevant, makes no difference.
Also worthy of mention, I'm using MX Linux, which is a stand-alone distribution based on Debian that still uses the Synaptics driver (better!!) rather than the libinput driver. I found it to be the best linux distro at the moment when it comes to touchpad mouse movement. If you're desperate, it's worth a try.

Final observation: I still suck at Quake!! LOOOOOOL

Poor performance with intel Xe

Hi,I recently switched to a Dell XPS 9310 with a i7-1165G7 and i noticed that i have inconsistent FPS(10fps for 20sec and then constant 60fps for like 10min) even on little game like hollow knight.It doesn't seem to be a thermal throttling (the CPU is always bellow 76C)When it happens, the CPU frequency drop as low as 800hzThe issue does not append when I turn turbo boot off in the bios.

I read that i might be a TDP limit (like when the CPU or the IGPU turbo boost the other does not have enough power but i don't know).I would like to know how can I fix this or, at least set the turbo boot within Linuxthank you in advance

I have done some benchmark:

Among Us pls

Hi ladies, I'm trying to run Among Us on an Arch system only using Wine (5.22) bcos fk Steam.

All works smoothly except I can't host an online game nor join one. Screen goes black.

I can access the internet from wine so that's not the issue, I must be doing something wrong with the game specifically.

I've tried versions 11.4, 11.17 and 12.5 with no luck and exactly the same outcome.

Any Ideas?

How do you customize Elite Series 2 paddle button bindings?

I'm using the Elite Series 2 controller, working great out of the box under 5.4.80-2-MANJARO with USB. However, I can't seem to customize the paddle buttons. When I try to bind the paddles in Rocket League they just show up as A, B, X, and Y, unless I have the "default" profile selected on the controller (no lights on), in which case trying to bind the paddles doesn't do anything at all, as described here. So I can't seem to customize the paddles independently of ABXY.

Is it possible to bind the paddle buttons on the Elite Series 2 under Linux?

Is the DualSense PS5 Controller supposed to be fully working already? I got one but it doesn't work very well...

TL;DR -> The title.

So, I played Detroit: Becoming Human with a DS4 that from a friend and the experience was excellent: everything in game worked perfectly (key mapping, touchpad, gyroscope, led colors, etc). I really liked how the DS4 was perfectly supported out of the box and that I could even use the touchpad to control the mouse outside the games. After the DualSense was announced I followed the Linux support news with great interest and I was pleased to see that both Valve and Sony took actions in actively supporting it (the first on Steam and the second releasing FOSS drivers). So I decided to buy a DS and I got it today.

I connected the DS via USB cable and Steams's Big Picture is detecting it as a Play Station 5 Controller. I also updated the udev rules to be sure that the Dual Sense changes were there, before connecting it and I already rebooted the PC after the changes.

The first disappointment I got is that the trackpad is not controlling the mouse cursor, like it used to do with the DS4.

I then started Detroit: Becoming Human to see if, at least in games, it works correctly and, to my big disappointment, the controller is recognized as an XBox controller and all the buttons on the DS seems to do absolutely nothing (the Analog and DPad seems to work fine: I can change the selected menu item with them).

Death Stranding doesn't recognize it at all (I can't even change the menu selected item, like I can do in D:BH).

Am I doing something wrong?

My understanding is that Steam should have full support for this Controller already: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2020/11/valve-expand-steam-input-to-support-more-of-the-ps5-dualsense-controller

I'm using Ubuntu 20.10. I've opted in for the Steam Client Beta. I can start Big Picture pressing the PS button on the controller.

Nvidia or Radeon?

Good evening, all! :)
With the new hardware that's come out recently I've been wanting to do a system upgrade. I currently have an RX 590 in my rig and it just doesn't cut it on my 1440p@144hz monitor. There's RTX 3060Tis and RTX 3070s in stock here, but no RX 6800XTs. Raytracing doesn't really matter, just the general performance and game support. My question is, what's the situation right now with Nvidia cards? Do RTX cards work fine or should I wait for who knows how long to snatch an RX 6800XT?

Weird keyboard mapping issue while running Battle.net.

Hello, thought I should also ask about this here.

I'm having a really weird issue when running Battle.net and any games using it, namely Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft.

Everything seems to be running fine, but for some outlandish reason when I hit the "v" key it registers as "".

I'm using KDE Plasma with the finnish keyboard layout. Installed Battle.net through Lutris.

The issue seems to appear with some Wine versions, and not in others. Older Wine versions like lutris-4.16-x86_64 don't have the problem, but using them causes WoW to crash on launch. Using newer Wine versions like 5.22 Staging and lutris-5.2-x86_64 will launch the game, but the keys will be messed up.

Changing keyboard layouts to english doesn't work. Reinstalling Battle.net and the games doesn't work. I've also tried using different DXVK versions and a bunch of different Wine versions. Sometimes I can get it to work but I have no idea what's causing it or fixing it. I think I got it to work once by crashing the game on a newer Wine version and switching to an older version after that.

This is by far the most absurd bug I've ever come across. Would really like to know if anybody else has ever had an issue like this and any possible suggestions on how to fix it.

Wineskin does not save wrapper

I'm desperate. I run on Catalina 10.15.7 and downloaded the "WS11WineCX64Bit19.0.1-1" Engine and updated to the Wrapper version "Wineskin-2.9.0.7-rc1". When I try to create a Wrapper it creates and says: "Wrapper Creation Finished" in the background it's still spinning and saying "busy". Even stated finished, when clicking on the button "view wrapper in finder" it won't show up and also the folder it sais: "Created in" does not exist. Somehow it seems not to really create or save the wrappers. I'm glad for any help...

Looking to move completely over to Linux, looking for advice!

Hello! First of all, sorry for my ignorance in this field. I've always been a Windows user. Until now, I haven't had the confidence or knowledge I needed to make this switch. As you read from the title, I'm looking to completely move over to Linux from Windows 10. Since I can remember, it's kind of rubbed me the wrong way that I can purchase each part of my PC, personally assemble it, pay $100 for Windows, and yet, it feels like I don't own my own PC, and that Microsoft has the final word.

The poor search functionality, the lack of privacy, and lack of customization options, have always gotten under my skin. Recently I was forced an update that completely ruined all of my third party customization I had done. And this is far from the first time.

So, here I am. Looking for some Distro recommendations! I've always wanted to move over to Linux, and I'm only recently discovering how much support has gone towards my most common use-case for my machine: Gaming! I'm looking for a Distro that will perform well for Gaming, and I also highly prioritize Customization, and Security/Privacy. I'm willing to put in work on my end, as long as there are resources that can help me troubleshoot well enough. I'm no genius, but I'm fairly tech-savvy. My plan is to Dual boot into a a few different Distros over time, and once I can safely say I won't need Windows at all, I plan to wipe it completely.

I'm a full-AMD system! I've heard that GPU drivers are a lot easier for AMD users so I thought I'd put it out there in case anyone was wondering!

I also from time-to-time use video/photo editing programs. No adobe suite though, I use Capture One Pro since I use a Fujifilm camera, and I use Davinci Resolve for video editing. From my searches, Capture One is not supported on Linux. Would I be able to work around this, and any other applications with a similar problem? (I know there are workarounds for games, but I'm ignorant to the rest). Thanks for reading! If there are any questions, or recommendations, drop them below :)

Sorry if this is too long-winded for some, here's a TL;DR

-Looking for Linux Distro for Gaming, high customization, security, and privacy are all -big- bonuses.
-How good are Workarounds for Applications with no native Linux support?
-Thanks for your help <3

Fashionably late to the party, I finally made the jump

I've always been a computer guy. My first computer was one of those lunchbox 8086s with a built-in green screen, two floppy drives, and a keyboard that clipped on to cover it all. I loved that damn thing, though I was too young to understand what I had. I built dozens of systems from pick-a-part dealers back in the day.

The problem was I had no exposure to Linux. Home? DOS and Windows. School? Windows (when we had access to computers - Detroit Public Schools...).

It wasn't until about 10 years ago that I started messing around with Linux and only as a hobby. I never used it as my daily driver because "LInuX iS bAd fOR gAMiNg". Which I do. I game (not as much as I used to - marriage and kids will do that) but I also code a little bit and I like to write short stories (not published yet, maybe soon). I've tested nearly every distro out there. Both in VMs and on a spare old machines. Anyways, like I said, Linux was never my daily driver.

Over the past few years, though, I've become more and more frustrated with Windows. It's felt like I don't own my hardware. Like Microsoft actually owned it and I was just using it at their convenience. Windows 10 finally cinched it for me. A few weeks ago, I ran out of patience. I made the jump and I couldn't be happier that I did.

The funny part is, gaming across the board is FASTER on Linux than it was for me on Windows. AND I'm on a laptop that has a hybrid graphics setup - Ryzen/RX560x. I'm simply blown away. To be fair, I had to do a bit of tweaking cli-wise but that's no big deal.

I've found software that is equivalent (better in some cases) to what I was using on Windows. Barring that, I'm able to run all my old Windows software through Wine (I haven't found anything yet that hasn't run). I can customize my system to my liking. Steam works like a charm. PlayOnLinux is working great.

In short, I switched to Linux from Windows and lost precisely nothing.

Though, I have heard rumors that Blizzard is dropping the banhammer on people playing their games through PlayOnLinux. Fingers crossed I stay under the radar - Diablo3 is a guilty pleasure of mine still.

I'm using Manjaro KDE, for anyone who might wonder.

New Proton user first impressions

I haven't been a PC gamer in close to 20 years, and I haven't been a Windows user for most of that time as well. Today, I finally finished building my new Linux rig after a bit of a saga getting the parts (first CPU was DOA). I had been reading for months about how much gaming on Linux had improved over the years and I was eager to experience it for myself, and quite frankly, I'm astounded. In under an hour, I went from a blank drive to having a fully functioning system running Pop_OS and playing a supposedly Windows-only game installed from Steam with nothing but a few straightforward clicks in GUIs to get there. No manual configuration, no hours spent googling... Just click click click click go.

My hat goes off to Valve and Steam and everyone that made this possible. I look forward to continuing to see where this goes.

Deconstructing Oculus Link?

Hello gents, Recently I got an oculus quest headset. It is really good except for the fact that the oculus app which is required to use steamvr and the likes is windows only!

What I'm thinking of as a solution is we should reverse-engineer the Link protocol in order to create an adapting layer for unix. It doesn't seem like that hard of a project compared to some other stuff that's out there.

I have had two ideas for something like this, and i'm wondering which one would be easier, either deconstructing the binary that the windows app uses, which is .net, OR we could use a usb protocol analyzer to deconstruct the signals being sent by the app and build from there.

If you're interested in helping maybe I could make like a matrix, discord or irc chat for it.

Doing something like this would be a huge score for linux gaming since it would get rid of a huge hold-back for finally ditching windows.

[Discussion] I built a Linux specific mod manager (for Fallout: New Vegas)

Hey all,

I wanted to share - even though its incredibly rough - this to get some feedback, see if the idea has legs. I got it far enough that its working for me and I'm happy the general approach works.

In short, I wanted to play Fallout: New Vegas over the holidays and got incredibly frustrated with trying to get mods working through SteamPlay. I could not figure out how to make Mod Manager 2 run under proton correctly, nor could I seem to find anyone else who managed to make it work.

So I wrote my own mod manager: https://git.sr.ht/~vodik/modder

The basic approach is to repurpose overlayfs for ordered mod loading. Mods are installed into separate folders in the filesystem, and then layered on top of each other on top of the base game install.

After that, a little bit of magic is needed to write out an updated plugins.txt.

This mod loader should be easily repurposable for other Gamebyro games, but I'm curious how general the core idea could be to other games.

Guys im trying to run EGS and...

So Im using both Wine and Lutris to install the Epic Games Launcher onto my ubuntu machine. I found a decently new tutorial on youtube by Novaspirit Gaming. I followed it and everything matched except for Winetricks.

When I installed winetricks and typed winetricks in the terminal, instead of giving the usual info, it warned me about downloading the 64-bit version. It also brought a prompt up for creating wineprefixes. (I have no idea how it works)

Secondly, when the EGS installation was finishing, the WINEPREFIX text in the terminal gave me a different result. Instead of a smooth sailing like in the video, it gave me two error messages telling me there is missing info. When it finished installing, EGS crashes anytime i click it from Lutris.

I need help in resolving this winetricks situation.

CPU Temps Higher Than Windows In Game

Hi,

This isn't really a big deal, but it's been slightly bugging me so thought I'd ask here as I couldn't really find many threads discussing it. I dual-boot Windows 10 & Arch, using XFCE DE. I'm using an i9-9900k with a Kraken x62 (gkraken is wonderful <3 ), and my temps are a bit weird when running games via proton (Haven't checked if this also happens with native linux games).

Running Yakuza Kiwami 2 & Hades [only games I have installed atm] and I notice the same thing when I start them up. The CPU temp jumps right away to 45-50 degrees and generally stays there - so this isn't really a big deal. When Idle, CPU temps hover around 25-30 degrees, which is a bit less than running windows idle. Though, running those same games in windows, the CPU temp hovers around 35 degrees. GPU temps are the exact same between the two, if not a few degrees less on linux than windows. This is with the same fan curves and pump speed for both cpu frequency, etc... And I'm capped at 60fps, which both reach and maintain.

I don't know if it's because proton itself putting more strain on the CPU, since it happens right when I launch the game, and some threads hop between 100% usage and 40% usage, while average cpu usage is around 20%, and since in both windows and linux, a certain temperature is maintained. If I were to guess, this'd make sense, but a 15-20 degree increase seems a bit much so I'm wondering if anyones experienced a similar thing.

Much appreciated.

Strange CS:GO Problem sometimes fixed by reboot

Hi there,

I have a strange problem that occurs roughly 30% of the time on my Arch Linux installation.

I have a i5 3570K and GTX 660 which can play CS:GO okay, normally.

So, sometimes, when I start CS:GO, I get 10 FPS in the menu and in game, right from the beginning. Nothing I can do to fix it without rebooting.

Then most times a single reboot helps and I get normal (60 - 150) FPS again. Other times two times reboot does the trick.

Now I'm here rebooting my PC 20 times in a row and still getting shitty FPS. I just want to play some CS:GO. Help me please

Has anyone had this problem?

Thank in advance

Playonlinux and Gnome Favorites Bar?

My first post here got locked for some reason, but this IS "gaming" related, so allow me to explain the reason I posted here and not on r/winehq. This subreddit has over 26k users, and currently 160 members online, r/winehq has less than 1.5k and currently 10 members online. The likelihood of my question being answered here is significantly higher, AND it IS about Playonlinux (game installation program). The question has nothing to do with the actual software I installed with Playonlinux, but it's about Playonlinux itself. So I've edited my post to comply with the rules here *facepalm*

I'm running Pop_OS! 20.10, I just bought the latest "minecraft", (Finally upgrading from "older minecraft version", I don't remember how I installed it before because it was many moons ago, I found a post about how to install "older minecraft version" with Playonlinux, I'm assuming this is what I used, or something similar to, and the same process still worked. But I can't access "minecraft" outside of Playonlinux.

On my computer I had Wine, Winetricks, and Playonlinux all installed. I just wanted to start over from scratch so I uninstalled everything to relearn this process in the event of future updates.

I now current have Wine 5.22, Playonlinux, and "minecraft" installed. I installed "minecraft" through Playonlinux and I can't figure out how to add a "minecraft" shortcut to the Favorites bar in Gnome. I tried adding a shortcut from Playonlinux which adds a .desktop file to the desktop, but that does nothing. I can't search for "minecraft" in Activities, can't add that .desktop to favorites, can't even open the file, just opens in a text editor to show me the command it wants to use.

Whatever I did before with "older minecraft version", I had an icon in the favorites bar, just one click, bingo, bango, "minecraft" opened, everything was good, everything worked, simple. Now with this install, everything still works, but I have to open Playonlinux first, and then open "minecraft" from there, if I close Playonlinux, it closes "minecraft".

So, anyone know how to get an installed "game" from Playonlinux to be searchable on Gnome's Activity screen and add it to the Favorites bar the way I had it before so I don't have to open Playonlinux everytime?

DualSense and Steam Link - does it work?

Hi fellow Linux gamers,

I need another controller and think of buying the Sony DualSense controller.

As it is supported by Steam and an official driver is heading to the Linux kernel, it should be a solid choice for Linux. And of course it seems to be a very good controller.

But the big question for me is: Can I use it with my Steam Link?

Has someone tried it or has information?

Playing CSGO on the highest settings was no problem for 2 days, than some microstutter, up to 1-2secs, happend from time to time. AntiAliasing is off, player contrast disabled, multicore rendering disabled, fullscreen and Feral's Gamemode active.

Tried to change all the settings without success, CPU and GPU in performance and powersaving mode didnt changed anything. CPU and GPU dont run really hot or at 100% either. Also did a fresh install of CSGO but nothing removed these laggs from time to time.

Any help would be awesome.

[Discussion] We miss a FOSS couch-friendly game dashboard, so why not just make one?

Hear me out for a second: Steam Big Picture is great. Really, I mean it! Sadly that's not the whole story, though.

The analysis

The last two and a half years have been a wild, wild ride for Linux enthusiasts who want to play games on their favourite distros.

We went from hoping our favourite games will run inside a manually configured Wineprefix (using that slowwwww WineD3D translation layer) to having Valve treating us with Steam Play and Proton, effectively cutting out a lot of the pain that was once daily routine. While this is certainly great, and people who have their games library on Steam for the most part benefit a lot from this, this isn't true for everyone.

That's where the open source community really shines. Thanks to awesome developers, we have masterpieces like Lutris, PlayOnLinux and GameHub readily available to us to manage and install games from other storefronts.

This is actually fine for everyone but some categories of people:

  • People who want a way to just launch their games from just one place and within a reasonable amount of time.
    GameHub already tries to solve this problem and it even has controller support, but it still lacks compatibility with some well known storefronts/wrappers;
  • Console players trying to migrate to PC for their gaming needs;
  • People who just prefer to sit on a couch and play games with their controller.

The new struggle

This is Bob. Bob is a Linux user with a decent computer and a gamepad. He wants to get his hands on {insert a well supported triple-A title name here}. Bob knows that getting the game on Steam would be ideal, since it will just run fine under Proton and ProtonDB rankings are good enough. However, there's a flash sale for the same game over at GOG. Bob is now conflicted: will he save some bucks and get the game on GOG or just go the safe way and buy it for the full price on Steam?

A: Bob chooses to buy the game on Steam; he values his time and he just wants to enjoy the game, after all.

B: Bob chooses to buy the game on GOG; he values his pocket money more than his time. He will, then, spend his time trying to get his game installed either manually or via Lutris/GameHub. However, he may lose some days before he gets his gamepad set up just about right.

Case B is where the pitfalls of current day Linux gaming really show themselves; and if you, like Bob, enjoy couch gaming or any kind of gaming that doesn't rely on a standard mouse and keyboard configuration, you're easily screwed if you don't own the game on Steam.

To compare it to Cyberpunk 2077's environment, Steam Play is Night City, and life's painfully hard outside of it. (And that's basically what Valve wants IMHO)

(To be totally fair, every reference to GOG is casual and actually it applies to other storefronts as well)

(No I am not hinting at Cyberpunk 2077 when I said {insert a well supported triple-A title name here})

"Oh but that's not a problem, you can..."

  • "...drop your controller shilling and just use keyboard and mouse like every PC gamer should do! PC MASTER RACE YEEEEAH"
    or
  • "...just buy an Xbox controller, which is supported everywhere and it always shows you the correct button prompts"

I shouldn't have to say this, but this is really not a solution. People have preferences, and I wouldn't ever switch from my DualShock 4 and my DualSense, not even for all the money in the world tbf.

  • "...add your game to your Steam library and leverage both Steam Big Picture and Steam Input's controller remapper"

Valid use case, however, I would need to make another paragraph just to discuss Big Picture. Get ready, here it is.

Steam Big Picture is just not that great

Sure, with time we learned that it's just plain better to spam game launchers/wrappers' devs basically the same feature request: "please add a command or URI handle to launch games from Steam Big Picture".

This is fine, but I always got a bit nervous about that: why should Steam always be at the core of my Linux gaming experience? Besides, it's not that Big Picture is especially cool either.

It just sat there, with its blue shades and plain old UI/UX since years now. It takes you a lot of time to jump into the action from the "main menu" of Big Picture. Heck, the Xbox 360 "Metro" dashboard was quicker and it actually offered a way better user experience; and mind you it launched before Big Picture was available to the general public.

Adding non-Steam games to the library makes the entire library look messy after a while, with missing banners, icons, inaccurate titles and so on and so forth. Besides, we won't get news and achievements history, and the playtime won't be as accurate. That's quite the disappointment.

The disappointment in Big Picture doesn't really end here either: in my experience, I always saw it lagging behind when I were to navigate through menus and launch games. This alone makes me want to ditch it and stay away from it, but that's not even the whole story; it freezed and crashed on me multiple times (even on Windows tbf). I wonder why Valve's devs are still putting that much effort into maintaining it without realizing the bad design and crappy UX they're basically giving to users. (I mean, not that they seem to be willing to bite the bullet and fix it either; the Friends tab is just the mouse-friendly desktop version but fullscreen. Awful).

The final nail in the coffin is Steam Input, really. Don't get me wrong, Steam Input's legacy is totally respectable, but it doesn't work as well on Linux as it does on Windows; not in my experience, at least.

For those who don't know, the logic applied here is the same as it is on Windows: if the game is owned on Steam and if it uses Steam Input API, then the controller is basically handled by that API and the game will also display correct button prompts for whichever game you're playing.

The problem manifests itself when playing games which don't use Steam Input API. For those games, developers can still make official controller mappings that will remap your controller to an Xbox one internally but still show the accurate prompts to you. A quick example would be the entire Yakuza franchise. However, this does not work on Linux. I imagine this is some kind of limitation that I hope will get fixed at some point, but this basically makes every game which would support accurate button prompts on Windows look bad on Linux under the same conditions (also, anyone besides me gets confused when seeing Xbox's X button and its resemblance in shape and color to PS' Cross button? Yeah that made me miss multiple quick time events on Yakuza 0. I hate it).

Finally, non-Steam games and Steam games without official controller mappings will just assign a "default" mapping to your favourite controller, which could be either fine or horrendously wrong. And still, Xbox prompts.

It doesn't have to be this way

I believe in the Linux gaming community, and I am looking forward to bring something new to the table. Enter my idea which doesn't even have a name for now.

But wait a moment, who am I again? I am the same girl who took r/unixporn by storm on April 2020 with the Glasscord project (for those who missed it, it was Discord/VSCode + transparent, blurry background).

I am trying to plan out and make an entire console-like dashboard for Linux desktops (and maybe Windows, though that's not a priority for now).

Hold on a second, cowboy! From here on we're talking hypothetical stuff!

The goal is really just making a modern TV- and gamepad-friendly dashboard (and game overlay) that really unifies all of your games (installable and installed) and makes you get into the action in seconds, just like it is on consoles.

Avoiding XKCD's prophecy

I don't want to just make another game launcher like Lutris or another attempt at GameHub but TV-sized. Instead, I want to take advantage of those projects to build what is, essentially, a GUI frontend to them.

As I am imagining it, the dashboard should be fully modular. Plugins for Steam, RetroArch, Lutris, Legendary, Itch, GameHub, et cetera, can then be made to add games into the dashboard. Other plugins for ProtonDB, IGDB and Metacritic could also provide useful information regarding game plot, game ratings and Proton compatibility ratings.

Finally, plugins for Discord or Mumble could add party chat support to the dashboard so that you don't really have to alt-tab out of the game you're playing to switch voice channels or send screenshots or a quick message to a friend.

Essentially, everything is a plugin and every plugin provides useful features to the dashboard.

On the topic of controller remapping

The dashboard should natively support as many controllers as possible. In the long run, I plan on kickstarting a controller remapper that can actually remap from and to a reasonable variety of controllers (for example, remapping a DualSense to a DualShock 4); and that would obviously get a plugin for the dashboard in the long run.

Keyboard and mouse, please?

If the idea actually catches up, I might also make a desktop suited GUI for keyboard and mouse people. Though, that's not the main focus for now and I doubt that'll be needed anyway.

Feedback is welcome!

As it stands, I am still not touching any code. I will probably outline the theoretical functionality of every core component and make some concept UI/UX designs before doing so.

Also, I am looking for people willing to help with this idea. If you're a developer or UI/UX designer and you want to make Linux (couch) gaming better, you're invited to join me in this crazy adventure.

I will read each and every comment about this idea here (and in my Discord server) and reply as soon as possible.

(Note for the moderators: Please forgive me if I'm using the wrong flair, maybe I am)

WoW black screen with DXVK

My Intel UHD 620 laptop can't seem to render the game. When I start it from Lutris, the game is black, but I can see the cursor. If I press enter to login, the loading screen is visible, but after that the screen returns to black. Though if I press enter and /quit, the game quits so it's definitely working, just that nothing is being displayed.

I've tried Wine 5.20, 5.22, and the Lutris 6.0rc2, and several DXVK versions.

The game works without DXVK, but there are graphical glitches and FPS is low.

I have installed every driver and library that was listed in the Lutris github docs, and the only answer I have found on the internet is disabling streaming, which has already been removed from the client entirely.

lutris -d does not print out any relevant information, and Wow_d3d11.log's only relevant information is this:

err:   D3D11: Cannot create texture:
err:     Format:  90
err:     Extent:  1920x1080x1
err:     Samples: 1
err:     Layers:  1
err:     Levels:  1
err:     Usage:   a8
err:     Flags:   0

I'm using Gnome 3.38 on Wayland. Any ideas on what's going wrong?

Lutris stuck on Creating Wine prefix

Hi everyone,

Every time I try to install something that depends on Wine, it stucks on Creating Wine prefix, without going on. If I launch Lutris from terminal, I have no useful output. (It just says Creating a win64 prefix in /home/user/Data/LutrisLibrary/[game folder]).

The strange thing is that wine works fine, and I can create prefixes manually with

WINEPREFIX=path winecfg

I use

  • wine-5.22 (Staging) (also tried with standard version, same result)
  • Lutris 0.5.8.1
  • SO: archlinux, everything up to date

Any ideas? Can't find useful informations around.

Thanks in advance!

can drive encryption stop proton games from launching?

hello, i recently switched to pop os 20.04, i am love it, but i am facing a problem, proton games don't want to launch, the games prepare to launch, the button says "running", but no window appears, and it shuts down a few moments later(side note: my emulators are facing the same problem)

i checked on proton db, and the games got gold or better

i tried running the game in lutris, the same problem happened

tried proton-GE-cutom, same problem happened

tried PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 %command%, didn't fix the problem

normal wine works

so i have a question, could it be that i encrypted my drive? i didn't have this problem on ubuntu, where my drive wasn't encrypted.

so could it be the encryption?

and is there a way to un-encrypt my drive?

StarCitizen - Linux Users Group wishes you a happy new year !

Happy New Year !

Linux Users Group at StarCitizen wishes you all a happy new year and a healthy experience with the best spacesim ever been worked on !

Both, Wine and StarCitizen are under heavy development and our mission is, to keep the game playable under Linux.

Now, that we have a new year and #LUG hit 1300 members today, its again time for a feedback from our last years acvtivities.

The year was terrible hard for the games development.

Worldwide spread development-studios are working 24/7 to bring the game to reality.

Then the big desaster, Wuhan lockdown, worldwide lockdowns, the switch to homeoffice for the devs, we cant even imagine the scale, changes have shaken the whole CIG ship.

That resulted in all kind of issues, including a nasty bug that made the game work really bad for a couple months.

We are very happy, the ship is back on course, so the second half of the last year was somewhat exciting, when it comes to playing StarCitizen on Linux :D

Last nights meeting was as well another point, to remind myself on posting here, so let me post our main news thread from 2020, to give you a picture about what happened last year ...

So what has happened ?

Our network of friends got bigger in first place.

We could win awesome people, gamers, developers and freaks over the last year.

It seems a lot of people want this ship going up and as avid SC players, we know, why :)

Then there is born a couple other cool inventions over the last year, like ..

.. a LUG-Helper script, that helps you setting stuff around SC on your Linux very easy

.. modifications on MangoHud to show more relevant infos, like the wine version in use and so on ..

.. support for wine runners in all colors, with fsync, with experimental patches for the joystick issue and so on, done by .. ya, us all :D

.. maintaining the Lutris install script

.. more bugreports for wine

.. meeting, testing, networking, community .. its really pluffy in da house u/LUG <3

You can join #LUG over here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/orgs/LUG

It is ofcause mainly about StarCitizen, but we are Penguins at heart and you know, the Linux universe is huge ..

So this is our news thread for the 2020 news ..

-/-

[28 December 2020]
A new version of our lug-helper has been released! It can now download, install, and remove lutris runners! Thanks to u/Termuellinator for his help adding these features. https://github.com/the-sane/lug-helper/releases/tag/v1.3

[27 November 2020]
The wine-staging patch msvcrt-Math_precision causes the char to fall through the planet and the sound goes scary scratching crazy.
That means, a full wine-5.22 (Staging) will cause issues with SC.
The fix came 10 hours after release, so it will not be in until the rebased 5.23 staging patches release.

[12 October 2020]
A commit in wine-5.19 caused a regression with the launcher, the launcher window stays plain white.
Thanks to u/dev_zero who found the offending commit.
Bugreport is here: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49991

[09 October 2020]
There is an issue with shadows/lighting in 3.11 for RADV users.
Here is the issue report u/dev_zero created https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/-/issues/3615

[07 October 2020]
Avoid updating to launcher v1.4.5 which was pulled by CIG.
Link to previous launcher https://install.robertsspaceindustries.com/star-citizen/RSI-Setup-1.4.4.exe

[03 October 2020]
The launcher crashes on load.
Thats an issue by the launcher using 3d accelleration, what failed for some players.
To prevent the crash, use a gl override option like this:
wine "RSI Launcher.exe" "--use-gl=osmesa"
See bugreport here: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49633

[18 September 2020]
u/dev_zero found a commit in dxvk 1.7.1 that enabled a vulkan extension that was not fully supported in mesa(radv) for AMDgpu users.
It was fixed by Valve's Pierre-Loup and available in the latest mesa master.

[20 August 2020]
u/Yuritau found an issue with our runners dropping a thread error, when Lutris has the switch "Prefer System Libraries" set to ON.
To get over the thread issue if you have it, you need to make sure to keep that switch OFF!

Please send a log to u/beniwtv about these crashes, the Lutris devs want to know about these crashes to fix their runtime.

[16 August 2020]
MangoHud has approved the changes to our little wine version string experiment to their master 
Thanks to u/dev_zero ,who did all the code work, we could improve MangoHud to show a wine version string 
Get in touch with this great configurable game overlay hud here:
https://github.com/flightlessmango/MangoHud

[13 August 2020]
Member u/theSane has written a script that can verify the vm.max_map_count setting, as well as backup your controller settings!
Please help test and give feedback on what else it could have!
https://github.com/the-sane/lug-helper

[02 August 2020]
#LUG has hit 1200 members today 

[19 July 2020]
u/dev_zero has made a pullrequest at MangoHud to implement the changes for a wine version string and color selection of that string.
To test it, clone the right gitbranch:
git clone -b wine2 https://github.com/gort818/MangoHud.git mangohud
next join the mangohud directory and enter

./build.sh build
./build.sh package
./build.sh install

Your mangohud config is in /home/you/.config/MangoHud/MangoHud.conf .
Visit that file and edit it for your needs.
To show the wine version in the overlay, add wine=1 to the config file.
To change the color, add wine_color=0x22bb88 as example to the config file as well.

[05 July 2020]
Thanks to u/pstn we now have a Mumble server to test! Check it out: mumble.xndr.de
Mumble should have packages in almost every distro, too!

[03 July 2020]
Mike_Scott solved the issue with the wine version string in MangoHud.
After /dev/null put a lot effort in creating the backyard for a wine version string in MangoHud, Mike_Scott could fix a nasty issue.
Expect a official MangoHud addition, that can show the current used wine version 

[02 July 2020]
Molotov spend a lot of time to investigate the microphone issue with StarCitizen.
He made a bugreport and provided a patch to Bugzilla here:
https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49501

[24 June 2020]
Bug 49007 got fixed with tonights wine commits. The current version is wine-5.11-111-g1f6423f778.
You can see the issue here: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49007
You can expect up2date Lutris runners for wine-5.11 soon, wine-5.12 will run StarCitizen out of the box again.
u/molotov_sh has released an experimental runner with this patch at https://github.com/snatella/wine-runner-sc/releases/tag/wine-1f6423f7-voip

[20 June 2020]
New TKG runners (Wine 5.10 / 5.11) with the VOIP patches (@molotov_sh will be skipping those due to the extensive patches required, so get them here):
https://github.com/Frogging-Family/wine-tkg-git/releases/tag/5.10.r0.g8648971f
https://github.com/Frogging-Family/wine-tkg-git/releases/tag/5.11.r0.g3d9a9272

[12 June 2020]
New LUG Lutris runner with VOIP support released by u/molotov_sh: https://github.com/snatella/wine-runner-sc/releases
u/Tatumkhamun released a tool to easily download and update LUG Lutris runners, sc-runner-updater (feedback welcome!)
https://github.com/richardtatum/sc-runner-updater
DXVK async patch to make shader compiling faster by u/dev_zero
https://github.com/gort818/dxvk/releases/download/async/dxvk-async.tar.gz

Warning: Async leads to shaders missing while they are loading, and doesn't block the game. Hence, it could be regarded as cheating by anti-cheat software. 
While SC does not yet have anti-cheat (as far as we know), use at your own risk!

-/-

So there is no native Linux client yet, but its still working pretty nice under wine so far.

Next year i will report again some news from our part of the universe as the game is growing and growing, its a cool experience for a scientific mind :)

Gamers will need to have some more patience yet, but testers may forget they are testing, while playing it :D

So again, #LUG wishes you all a healthy and successfull new year !!!

Cya later^^

ROBLOX on Wine

Hi there!So I'm not that new to Linux, but I am one of those users who relies on Google searches and such to use the commands. I am also a ROBLOX player and I play it on WIndows.I just wanted to know, before I make a full time switch from my dual boot to a single OS system, if apps are able to run through Wine immediately when launched without being configured to do so.Thank you, and stay safe!

Just to clarify. What I mean is ROBLOX launches through the web but is a stand-alone application. Through my experiences, ROBLOX never tends to launch. Is there a way to fix that?

Question for Game Developers on Linux

This question is meant for industry professionals to up and coming game developers what is stopping you from natively supporting linux ,is it the amount of time it takes the tools needed to do so ,the small market share linux has , or the amount distros ,or just not knowing how to natively support it ?

I am generally curious.

PS4 DualShock general question

Running Arch and well, want to use the DS4 for certain games, however... some games only offer support for Xbox360/etc controllers.

Not using Steam but PlayOnLinux btw. In Steam DS4 work out the box as Ive read so thats not an issue.

Seen the package ds4drv on the AUR that basically allows a DS4 to be mapped as an Xbox controller, but... that would replace the bluez-utils package if I decide to install it.

Question is: should I remove bluez-utils will it break the bluetooth functionality? If anyone knows of a different approach please let me know.

Civ 5 problems semi launching

So some background knowledge here, I am somewhat new to linux. Though I am familiar with it, I recently just finished paying off my gaming laptop which ran windows so since it is out of warranty I decided to plunge into Ubuntu. Now I recently built a gaming desktop that I play 90% of my games but I still want to use this laptop for some more portable casual gaming.

Ive had Civ V in my steam library and downloaded it since it runs native on linux but I have had nothing but trouble. So when I run it through straight linux the launcher does not even pop up it just jumps right into a windowed version of the game that I cannot click anything in the window. The cursor moves just fine but cannot click on any buttons within it. So then I tried switching to the latest stable proton (5.13?) and the launcher pops up but nothing comes up when I click on the play button.

I would love to just chill and play civ 5 and if possible play with the vox populi mod but I would understand if thats not possible. Just looking for some help here.

Thanks in advance and I am already loving the switch!

Easy Anti-Cheat on Linux?

Hey guys, I was wondering if somebody could clarify this for me:

I know that anti-cheat is a big problem when trying to play games on Linux (Rainbow Six Siege, ...).

However, while browsing the internet I saw, that Easy Anti-Cheat officially supports Linux. Is that true?

If so, why is anti-cheat still such a problem?

Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition - Simple resolution fix

I have seen many people complain about the full-screen support of NWN:EE, people can't resize their resolution and are forced to play in native resolution.. there's a very very simple solution to this, a simple script:

  1. Change desktop resolution
  2. Start game
  3. Change desktop resolution back to native

Example file startGame.sh, placed where the game files and executable are.

#!/bin/bash
myOutput='DVI-I-1' # Define your output screen to change
myRes='1024x768' # Desired resolution for NWN:EE
nativeRes='1920x1080' # Native resolution

xrandr --output $myOutput --mode $myRes
./nwmain-linux
xrandr --output $myOutput --mode $nativeRes

The game executable in my case is nwmain-linux and my display output is DVI-I-1, yours might be different as well as your desired resolution.. you can identify your display by simply running xrandr, it will show you displays and available modes - make sure you u, in a multi-monitor setup make sure your resize the desired screen.

To use the script, simply run it (you might need to set file permissions to allow it to run with chmod).

Is steamlink available for ARM in general or ONLY Raspbian?

I've just now heard about the release to Raspberry Pis. I'm going to have a Pyra soon, which is also ARM, and that thing won't be running Raspbian--it'll basically just be running regular debian. Is there any way I can install steamlink onto it, or am I just plain boned? It seems bizarre and pointless for Valve to make it exclusive to just one distribution...

Cant install ESO

Hi guys, my friend just gifted me the Elder Scrolls Online, but he got the standalone (not the steam) version. That's fine as apparently the steam version is just a wrapper for the ESO launcher anyway. Its a well known on and off problem that the ESO updater sometimes has trouble connecting to the servers, something to do with ca-certificates, I followed the steps to fix this, but its still not working. I had error 0 before the certificate fix, now j have error 8. I will get some proper output when I get chance later.

I'm on Debian bullseye (currently testing), anyone have any idea of a possible fix?

Why do indie games support linux natively more often than AAA games?

Just an observation I made, from my (small) library. Games like Witcher 3, Horizon, GTA and apex don't natively support linux, while most (but not all) of my indie games support linux. There are some exceptions like tomb raider which supports linux, and subnautica which doesn't, but generally games follow this pattern. Any reason in particular or is it just because of sample selection bias?

Any good game launcher alternative to Gamehub and Lutris?

I don't like Lutris,I like Gamehub more,but that doesn't have all features,so I wanna try an alternative.

For Lutris ,I don't like that pretty much no feature requests from any users will be added.

For Gamehub,the devs are answering people very fast (I did 20 feature requests and questions 3 days ago and many of them are already answered,for Lutris some feature requests from 1 month ago aren't being answered),so I like Gamehub more.

But even Gamehub doesn't have all the features I want and it takes time to add them for the devs,so can you recommend me some game launchers?

And before anyone recommends "PlayOnLinux",that's not what I want,what I want is a program,where I can add windows/Linux/Emulated games easily and change which env vars and commands every game uses and being able to launch the games there.

Using Linux, I'm creating a better version of Stardew Valley. Am I a moron?

I just released my first development blog ever. I'm not a professional game developer. I decided that I might as well start at the top. I might as well try recreating what is probably the most successful indie game ever created -- Stardew Valley.

Here's my development blog.

https://www.commonwombat.com/blog/

My game which doesn't yet have much game play at this point is early in it's development.

Soon, I will release youtube videos chronically the technical challenges that I have faced in attempting to reverse engineer a truly great game, when honestly, I'm not a game developer. I'm an application software engineer.

My game will eventually have a theme and setting completely different than Stardew Valley.

Am I moron for attempting to do this?

Rumble effects in games not firing

Having a lot of trouble with this, and can't find any recent info on the topic, so thought I'd try here.

Rumble effects have stopped working in games on either of my controllers (Xbox One controller and 8bitdo SN30 Pro). They both connect via bluetooth and use the xpadneo driver. They rumble when turned on (which is correct behaviour per the driver) and I can force a rumble out of them with fftest, so my assumption is that it isn't a driver issue.

In games though, I get nothing. My first thought was this might be a WINE issue, so I tried changing Proton versions for a few games in Steam, but nothing from the several versions between 4.11 and 5.13 I tried made a difference. I also don't know that I own any native games with rumble support, so I'm unable to confirm if it's WINE specific. I know there's been issues with rumble events in the past.

Otherwise, I'm just running a standard Manjaro install, up to date. Annoyingly I don't really know exactly when the rumble stopped working, as I hadn't used a controller in games for months, and by the time I noticed this there had of course been a whole host of updates.

Any suggestions, or anyone else having this issue?

Fullscreen in virtual desktop

For some forgotten reason i think that "Emulate virtual desktop" should be borderless when emulated resolution matches desktop's. And indeed, it works fine when game's resolution also matches desktop's. But when i decrease game's resolution the game became windowed even if it set to fullscreen in game's settings.

I'm not sure if it's an expected behaviout or i should to report the bug.

uninstall app icon bloatware

Hi I tried looking everywhere on r/elementaryos or on the wine sites but i can't find any answers to my problem. when I install windows games the shortcut to the game shows up in the applications menu, which is great! However, a lot of the time all the uninstall links also show up in the applications menu making it very cluttered.

I'm on elementary os, the most up to date one. I need someone to tell me how to remove all the uninstall apps from showing up in the slingshot/applications menu please. I'm posting this here because when I follow the applications directory it does not show the wine applications so I was wondering whether they have their own directory somewhere for shortcuts.

Uninstalling the game seems to leave the shortcuts behind which is super annoying. I have attached an image of the problem.

OBS now suddenly lags the hell out of all my games, especially Titanfall 2.

I have absolutely zero clue what went wrong, I used to be able to record gameplay of Titanfall 2 but now if I even fire up the encoder my game will become unplayable. CS:GO has a similar problem now but alot more subtle and forgettable. I have not changed my drivers, changed DXVK, or done anything of the sort. The only thing I can think of that I've done before the issue began was:

  • Install Salad.io (I always close it before doing anything else)
  • Upgrade to an Ultrawide Monitor
  • Upgrade to another SSD which I use for dual booting, my Linux OS is not stored on the new one, hence I find this detail irrelevant.

Please help

What Sim racing wheel works?

I am hoping to get more into sim racing, and playing truck simulator, currently I am still using my Logitech Driving force pro, and its loud and is not to good, I usually find myself back with my steam controller.

Really looking between a fanatec CSL this one or a thrust master like this TS-XW but trying to find out if either of these wheels play nice in Linux is pretty mind numbing, I see both were working in Dirt Rally, but I also play automobilista 2, and assetto Corsca, and possible RFactor 2 and Iracing if I get to them at some point.

Is there competitors that work better? I just don't want another loud FFB cheap gear driven wheel. Any advice is welcome ty

Single pc vs duel pc streaming setup

NOTE: posting here cause this is a linux gaming-centric group. if there is a better place to post this...please let me know....thanks

so i currently stream on twitch with my current rig (skylake build from 5 years ago). i am currently looking to move to a more current setup. here are the 2 options im considering....

Option 1 (single pc) https://pcpartpicker.com/user/ninjaijr/saved/GRxrvK

Go with a fully AMD current gen based rig and stream via x264 (cpu render/encode). With it being mid to high range i think it can handle running both streaming and encode/render tasks

Option 2 (Duel PC) Main PC - https://pcpartpicker.com/user/ninjaijr/saved/N77PFT

Streaming PC - https://pcpartpicker.com/user/ninjaijr/saved/R9dCdC

split up the workload and have 1 more bare bones pc to ONLY do the encoding/rendering (NVENC) and put the left over budget into a 2nd pc to do the gaming.

in regards to current prices-

i'm likely not going to build these until around the march 2021 time frame at the earliest so currently im looking at MSRP pricing as i HOPE the current cpu/gpu market will stabilize by then

What i am currently thinking.....

  1. go with the single pc build as listed above

OR

  1. try to get my Stream only PC to around $500 and build a upper mid range Current gen AMD gaming rig

Stream only minimum requirements -1660 super or better

im thinking a zen or zen 2 cpu paired with 8/16 GB 3200 memory

looking for help in getting my streaming only build to around $500

Could I switch to linux on my potato PC?

My specs are as follows: CPU: Intel i5 2400 RAM: 8 GB GPU: GTX 1650 Super

I'm frustrated with Windows 10 and I've wanted to fully switch to Manjaro or something. I'm not sure if it's a good idea. Games I play: CS:GO, Left 4 Dead 2, Elite Dangerous, MGSV, Gmod and Rainbow Six Siege. The main reason I hesitate is that I have a Nvidia GPU and I've heard that Nvidia support for linux is bad. Will I see performance downgrades if I make the switch?

Gyelfars -- is not ready for prime time

I don't know when or where the best time or place to present my 'unpresentable' game is. Since I'm entering the content focused phase of development I've opted to post about Gyelfars now when feedback is most likely to make a difference. I'm letting my limitations steer the boat so I'm not married to any specific idea. I also can't pursue any given idea because of said limitations.

I will likely create an appimage going forward to work with Ubuntu 16.04. If requested, I'll do it sooner rather than later.

Linux is the lead development platform thus will have more frequently updated builds.

The current version is 0.5.33 available at:

https://setsobotswana.itch.io/gyelfars <-- Most convenient for rapid updates.

https://gamejolt.com/games/setsobotswana/552139 <-- Haven't automated update process yet.

How can I make WINE save stuff?

Hello to all and I wish a MERRY HAPPY New Year, as the last one was a bit rough.

So, I recently switched to Linux(xUbuntu, fyi) and I'm happy about it tbh, for the most part. As per usual, the Linux support for games was... Lacking, to the least.

I managed to find a LoL site/github link that allowed me to return to the Rift and I also battled the great Modded Minecraft and Java environment boss, but WINE has me defeated.

I have some .exe/Windows executable games(which I won't like out of fear of being judged and/or getting the post removed), which are offline and enjoy playing overall. The thing is, they have some sort of a "progress" system(think of it like levels in LoL, the more you play, the higher your level and the rewards you can have) and whenever I close the game and restart it at a later time, all progress is lost(back to level 1 on my sh*tty LoL analogy).

So, is there a way to configure WINE to save game progress? Like, say to it somehow: "Oi mate, take the changes from before and after the game was closed and save them. AND be able to read them as well next time I open it up!!!!". Appreciate every piece of advice and information.

Thanks and happy holidays! :D

How smooth is gaming on Linux compared to Windows?

Since PC specifications will strongly determine the performance of games, here's what I'm running:

GTX 1080

i7 6700k @ 4.2GHz

850 EVO SSD

Z170-A Motherboard

16GB Kingston Black RAM

That's basically what I'm rocking at the moment. Here's a couple que4stions I have in regards to Linux gaming in general:

I have a G-SYNC monitor, and I know that Linux now supports these, but does it support them well? For example, on G-SYNC typically, you have to use a frame-limiter to limit below your monitor refresh rate, turn v-sync on in NVCP and off in-game, etc. My question is, are you able to do this in Linux? I know Linux sorta has an NVCP, but I know from what I've read it's far less feature rich I think? Not super sure though!

Next, I know Proton is iffy with some titles, but are those titles easy to get working? For example, I love Persona 4 Golden, and plan on replaying it again in the future. I sunk over a hundred hours already on Windows, but if I swap to Linux, I'm afraid it won't work. It has a gold rating on ProtonDB, and some say that with a couple tweaks you can get it running very well, but how difficult is it to tweak proton to get it to work correctly? I'm not someone who finds it easy to tinker with things sometimes, so this is very important to me.

Next, how smooth are Linux-native games compared to other platforms? Does it run them fairly well?

Thanks a ton guys!!

Valve Index display not being detected by SteamVR or xrandr

I recently got a Valve Index and decided to switch back to Linux after a long time. After installing Ubuntu 20.10, I have attempted to connect the DisplayPort cable of the Index via a DisplayPort to Thunderbolt adapter on my machine (which works on Windows), however when I launch SteamVR, I get a 307 (From what I have read that means a component of SteamVR isn't working which I suspect is an issue with the display connection after reading the logs). xrandr doesn't detect anything connected to DP-0 or DP-1 either. I have attempted to update Nvidia GPU drivers, DisplayLink drivers, and SteamVR installations, as well as search Google for a bunch of different keywords, however I have come up empty. Any help would be appreciated.

I love my move to Linux, this time it just feels complete!

Alrighty, I am not new to Linux. I am though happier with this resent switch because of gaming. Literally everything works!

I finally feel like Linux can take over the pc market. Because the only thing Im still having issues with is my GPU drives. After that, its going to be smooth sailings.

I do hope that epic, uplay, and GOG make a native app with proton. Its the only way the games are playable. And its only going to get better!

I do want to see Adobe acrobat, Word, and Excel. Also any video encoder stuff get ported to Linux. Its time we have a fighting chance in the professional and everyday users.

Until then, I got my iPad for Adobe acrobat, word, and excel. I can also access Microsoft Office online with my outlook account.

Detroit become human, not launching

The game just simply won't launch, i just got it on sale with steam yesterday, for the last 24 hours, I have scoured the internet for help, I have read protondb (game doesn't even generate those vk.bin files mentioned in several posts), I have read everything else associated with this. Game jsut simply won't launch. Heck, I ran steam(both native and runtime) from console and there wasn't anything wrong there either

I jsut simply have given up, I tried everything, so now I ask you guys for help

My specs are

Arch, amd 3800x, 5700xt, Mesa (the one in repositories, not git), amdgpu, llvm.

Any help will be appreciated

Joint display issue with Epic + Lutris

I have recently come across this issue where Borderlands 2 (and other games) launched from the Epic Games Launcher (launched through Lutris) repeatedly launches on my laptop display. FYI, I have a 17" Eurocom connected to an external 35" display. Whenever I launch a game from Epic, it switches off the external display (irrespective of whether it is set as the primary/secondary display), and launches the game on the laptop display, and on top of that with a weird resolution! Even turning off the laptop display, and setting the whole thing on a single display (external) does not help, as the external display is switched off, and the game(s) launch on the laptop display.

On the other hand, Steam, and even Battle.Net works just fine, with no glitches whatsoever. What's got me confounded is that Epic used to work just fine in the past. Any hints or suggestions is highly appreciated!

Cheers, Tux-folks!

Some steam play games don't start in the foreground and crash after a few seconds

So, I am on Linux Mint 20. This recently started happening, unsure why to be specific. I download and install a steam play game. On clicking Play, it changes the button into Stop but the game never launches in the foreground. After a while, assuming the game crashes in the background, it changes the button into Play again.

Chat Function in SuperTuxKart

I just started playing SuperTuxKart online. How do you chat with other players during a race? I see the messages at the bottom of the screen but I can't figure out how they're doing that. I've spent over an hour looking for the answer and can't find anything. I thought about asking in the lobby, but I've already been given a hard time about being a noob. No need to draw more attention to my inexperience.

Can only see top left corner of fullscreen Proton games on 4k monitor

As the title says, Proton games in fullscreen assume my display is 1080p, so I can only see the top left corner of them. The only fix seems to be setting my entire OS to 1080p. Anyone know of a launch option that could fix this? Thank you.

(to clarify, I don't actually game in 4K, I play at 1080p scaled up)

Temtem on Wine

Greetings,

I'm trying to run Temtem in steam with proton 5.13 and it's with horrible performance. Even though it's running in my nvidia card I'm having 5fps. In Windows the game runs at 60 fps in 1080p, in Linux I managed to get 30fps avg ONCE and I don't know whats going on.

I'm running the latest proprietary drivers from nvidia in Manjaro with kernel `linux 5.9-16`.

What can I do to get better performance or what do I need to search to understand what's going on?

The game is labeled Platinum in protondb.

Thanks in advance.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey (Uplay) silent crash on load w/ dxvk

AC:O for me is silently crashing in the middle of the loading screen of the actual game, like when you start new game / start benchmark, etc. The game itself starts and works fine up until I actually try loading it. This wasn't a problem with wined3d tho, but the game is unplayable with it. (12fps, garbled graphics, but at least it loads and is playable.)

wine: 6.0-rc4-tkg (tried with 5.22 aswell) dxvk: 1.7.4 Arch Linux 5.10.2-tkg-upds Nvidia GPU

Wine problems with bluetooth gamepad

Hello everyone, I'm playing a game with lutris. It will run fine with Wine 6.0 rc[1,2,3,4] but it won't run with wine-proton (kron4ek's builds). But, my gamepad won't be mapped correctly over bluetooth on Wine 6.0 (the one that works with my game), the Wine Control Panel shows my gamepad this way, while wine-proton, on some games that it works, will show my gamepad this way. and it will map my buttons correctly. So, is there anyway to implant the way wine-proton 5.13-4 handles bluetooth gamepads inside wine 6.0? All my prefixes are set to Windows 10. My gamepad is a Xbox One S working through bluetooth with a generic bluetooth dongle. Using it wired works fine on both wines. Thank you!

The native Games Launcher for Epic Games is here: Heroic Games Launcher

HI!

Thanks for all the support I got on the last few days! :D

I just want to say that I'm releasing the beta version of the HGL - Heroic Games Launcher, quite limited for now in terms of features, but working with the basic stuff.

I got thousands of ideas for the name but I think Heroic is nice because resembles Legendary and is easy to remember! :)Check the link for the Github. For now, there is only an AppImage, but I'll release binaries like deb, rpm and, post on AUR very soon.

Github: https://github.com/flavioislima/HeroicGamesLauncher

Feature available right now:

  • Login with an existing Epic Games account
  • See the whole library
  • Check basic information about your Games
  • Install/Uninstall Games
  • Play games using the default wine and default prefix
  • Sync saves with the cloud (kind of bugged)
  • Open game page on Epic Store
  • Search for the game on ProtonDB

Planned features

  • Customized installation options
  • Play game with custom wine (Proton maybe but can be bugs)
  • Sync installed games with an existing Epic Games installation folder
  • Get the Free game of the week
  • Logout (why not?)
  • Put the Legendary binary along with the Heroic one (Not 100% sure about this one)

Thanks!

MIDI playback is not functional

Thought I'd put it out there, even though that feature is probably barely used nowadays. And yes, I know about the MIDI page on wineHQ's website, nothing works

I start fluidsynth via fluidsynth -a pulseaudio /home/username/Downloads/gm.sf2

It all works fine via aplaymidi -p128:0 ./file.mid

I then tried to start RPG Maker XP, no music can be heard

I then try the regex thing, creating an entry with the value "CurrentInstrument"="#1", or "CurrentInstrument"="128:0"

Still nothing. Not that its a big deal, just frustrating that wine claims to support MIDI when in fact it does not actually seem to support it

Things I have tried and observed the same issue :

  • Changing xbox driver from default xpad to steamos-xpad
  • Updating xpad-git-dkms from AUR
  • Changing driver to xboxdrv
  • Tried different USB ports and USB cable as well
  • Disabling auto-suspend (I don't know if I used the right udev rules)

Some other info :

  • OS : ArchLinux
  • Motherboard : Gigabyte H410M-S2 (Upgraded from Asus H110M-C : It used to work fine with no such error couple months ago)

Can someone please help me out to fix this ? Please note that, I haven't faced any issue while using the controller for gaming, but the logs still points out that something is wrong.

Elite Dangerous launcher (Epic Games version)

Has anyone gotten it to work?

I wanted to try it since I got the game for free. Launcher starts up with dotnet452 installed but as soon as I hit the "Link" button to link my account it freezes/crashes. Tried it with the modified version Wine Mono too and same thing there.

Is there any other way to link the Epic account with Frontier?

Steam on Wine is Offline ?

The steam on wine shows as if I am offline,
and the game library is completely empty.

I use a macOS 10.9.5 on 13" mid 2012
Wine 5.0 Stable

This is how it looks
https://imgur.com/EyegXn5

I also get an error for "The program (unidentified) has encountered a serious problem and needs to close..."

This can be a problem caused by a problem in the program or a deficiency in Wine. You may want to check the Application Database for tips about running this application.

This appeared when I tried to open steam on Wine (Stable) on mac (OS 10.9.5)

Any suggestions on how to solve this?
I was also having another problem same as this https://www.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/comments/gtjn04/cant_login_to_steam/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share

I haven't tried out the solution suggested on the second problem because I believe the first problem may be the real problem.

Steam launches with empty screens. Is this connected to the "vulkandriverquery64.exe" error prompts I get on launch?

Hi everybody,

I'll get my apologies out of the way first...
1) for asking a question that may have been asked several times before - I've scoured the sub, but nothing I've read has got me anywhere
2) for being a novice with Wine.

I'm sorry!


Ok, so I've recently installed Wine Stable v-5.0 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.6, simply because I want to play the desktop version of Among Us.

My upgraded Macbook Pro 9,2 (Mid-2012) is faaar from a gaming machine, I know, but I play a handful of games on it via native Steam, and would expect it to manage Among Us, if only it were available on Mac.

When launching Steam (version is up to date) via Wine, it logs me in fine and the interface loads, however every tab is empty. I can play with settings, and view my games list, but the Store is entirely blank and I can't see my profile or pretty much anything else.

Upon launch I get two program error prompts: both "vulkandriverquery.exe" and the "64" equivalent encounter serious problems and have to close - the details of which are undecipherable to me but I can share if useful. I'm wondering if these errors are the cause of Steam tabs not loading content, or if it is an unrelated issue? Do I need Vulkan implementation to be able have Steam fully working? Why isn't it already there in Wine?

I'm used to finding bottlenecks with my hardware. I've upgraded my RAM and to SSD, but my GPU - Intel HD4000 - is often problematic, and my CPU - Intel i5-3210M @ 2.50GHz - equally so. Nonetheless, I expect it can actually do this with some tweaking. I wonder if my GPU does not support vulkan, but this brings me back to "do I actually need vulkan?"

Is there any work around, or methods I can try to get Steam fully operational via Wine? Or is there another method I can try to play this game with as little expenditure as possible, short of installing Windows via Bootcamp? - I'm reluctant to do this, but only because that seems to be the consensus, the details of which I'm hazy on.

Any & all advice appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Minimizing with nvidia-drm modeset=1 causes low fps

Hello, I'm using nvidia-drm modeset to enable/disable v-sync, and when I was playing games without v-sync everything was fine, now I wanted to enabled v-sync and I noticed that when v-sync is enabled (options nvidia-drm modeset=1) it causes low fps when minimizing game.

I'm playing with virtual wine desktop enabled to make game window always active, and when I minimize wine desktop I'm not getting 60 fps anymore, I'm getting between 0.5 and 30.0, this causes some problems for me. Same happens with glxgears on host system.

For me it looks like it's something to do with priority, i.e. when you minimze window, it becomes not so important, so it's priority gets lower and thus it cannot render frames so frequently anymore. But how can I prevent it from happening without disabling v-sync (modeset=0) ?

The Sims 2 on Ubuntu using Lutris: cannot locate CD-ROM

Hi there, I've been trying to get The Sims 2 to work on Ubuntu 20.04 using Lutris 0.5.8, but I've had no luck. I downloaded the game for Windows through https://oldgamesdownload.com/the-sims-2/, and installed it using Lutris.

It seems like everything went well, but when I try to run the .exe file, I get an error about the CD-ROM not being found. I still have the ISO file mounted, which should serve as a kind of emulation the CD-ROM, but it doesn't seem to work. Is there a way for Wine to recognize this ISO file as a CD-ROM?

(I might be asking this in the wrong subreddit, so please tell me if this is not appropriate here.)

GTA V on Steam POM launcher issues

Trying to get GTA V to launch through Steam on POM. Every time it launches it runs the First time Setup window, and the Rockstar Games Launcher pops up for ~1/4 a second and immediately crashes. POM then says it was unable to find the launcher (despite it just launching and crashing). Placing the launcher exe in the proper location manually does not change this, and opening via the launcher causes the same 1/4 second launch and crash cycle

I'm Working on a native Epic Games Launcher for Linux. Help me with a good name for it

Hi!

I was planning for a few weeks and started working today on a native Epic Games Launcher for Linux that uses the awesome Legendary as the 'backend'.
I know that we can install Epic Games using Lutris and most of the games there are DRM Free and that makes it easy to configure them on Lutris, but, anyway, with a native app we can do other things like:

  • Configure how the game will be launched, wine/proton version, wineprefix, etc.
  • Load the entire library of games.
  • Sync saves with the cloud.
  • Sync installation with installed EGS tore on a windows partition.
  • Get the weekly free games directly from the app.
  • Open the game page on the epic store.
  • And other stuff.

The stack that I'm using is Electron + React + Typescript.
And, like I said, it uses Legendary to do almost everything I've planned, I'll use other APIs for other stuff as well.

So I just don't know how to call it. For now, it is Epic4Linux but I don't know if I like it enough to keep it

A quick preview:

WoW classic error 132 on PopOS/lutris

Hey guys,

I have wow classic installed on PopOS 20.04 and randomly get error 132 crashes. I have tried messing with different dxvk and wine versions in the lutris config. Sometimes I'll go an entire day without crashing and sometimes it will happen 2+ times an hour. Last night I tried installed it again in lutris on a different ssd and played through an entire raid with no issues at all. Woke up this morning and crashed 3 times in 2 hours. Is there any recommendations or lutris/wine config changes that could help this? I have also tried adding -d3d11legacy and -d3d12 cli options to the client in the blizzard launcher but neither seem to do much.

Thanks

Macbook pro catalina 10.15.6 -Running WOW TBC with crossover - any ideas for the optimal experience?

I tried running TBC (atlantis karazhan) with an exe. client through something called 'Crossover' which uses the bottle system for booting exe files. But i dont think it runs well. Do anyone in here have another solution, can u make it run smoother with other settings in crossover?

Some uses Playonmac, but cant find a versions that fits catalina?

I dont want a windows partition on my internal hardrive to clutter up space -

other ideas i had:

make a partition on an SSD with an old macOS.

Make a windows partition on an SSD

Use another 'wine like program that runs smoother.

Any thoughts for the optimal experience? 'buy a windows computer' ofc. But kinda takes all the fun out of the challenge! - Merry xmas everyone

PlayOnLinux 4.3.4 issues with PANGO (Cairo?) + PYTHON

Hi, I have an issue executing PlayOnLinux in PopOS, i possibly messed up something, I am quite sure that I messed up something. Concerning PlayOnLinux version: 4.3.4

This is the error message, that I receive when starting PlayOnLinux:Looking for python... 2.7.18 - wxversion(s): 3.0-gtk3selected1**Pango:ERROR:../pango/pangofc-fontmap.c:1408:pango_fc_font_map_list_families: assertion failed: (res == FcResultMatch)Bail out!

What should I install/reinstall/check to fix this issue, which libraries and versions do I need to fix this issue? My error looks similar to those issues:

Best regards.

Nvidia application profiles and Proton

Nvidia application profiles and Proton

So how is this supposed to work? Let's say the main game executable is called "TekkenGame-Win64-Shipping.exe", if I add a new profile and tell the driver to use it when process name matches "TekkenGame-Win64-Shipping.exe" it does not work. I've also tried "*TekkenGame-Win64-Shipping.exe*", "*TEKKEN*" and the full wine path to the executable, ie. "Z:\mnt\samssd\steamlib_win\steamapps\common\TEKKEN 7\TekkenGame\Binaries\Win64\TekkenGame-Win64_Shipping.exe" (which seems to be the actual process name string that eg. ps in terminal shows).

I remember I did once get an application profile to work on a Windows game (Doom 2016) but I don't remember how exactly I did it anymore. :( Also, that game is a GL/Vulkan native game and does not need to be run using DXVK, perhaps that might have made a difference?

I want to force high quality antialiasing in the game (I don't think DXVK can do this via dxvk.conf*, seems it can only force anisotropic filtering...) and I can do that with the global settings in nvidia-settings, but obviously I'd prefer to do that only for certain programs. Forcing AA everywhere makes other games unnecessarily slow, can cause bugs, and also makes text in the Steam client and other applications appear blurry.

The way I've determined the application profile isn't taking effect is edges still look more jagged than when I'm booted into Windows or using the global adjustments in nvidia-settings, and also the small FPS overlay from the nvidia driver isn't appearing even though I have set GLShowGraphicsOSD=true in the application profile.

* well actually it can, but only for certain older D3D9 games

I cannot download Wine with playonmac for my MacBook pro 15 inch 2012

I have everything installed and coded correctly in Terminal. I installed PlayonMac - searched for Steam but it says Steam download failed via Wine. I click on Steam - hit install - it has me choose a virtual drive and then it says Wine 5.02 failed. I did updates, restarts, redownloads, but it will not download steam on playonmac through Wine. Seems like wine is the problem. Someone please help??? I cannot figure it out and I am not great at this so no judgement!

Less than ideal performance in Gothic 2 NotR

Hello, felt a bit nostalgic and decided to install Gothic 2 NotR, with all the mods (Fix 2.6, System Pack, Player Kit, Widescreen Fix) that make running this game possible on Windows - hey, it's almost 20 years old. To my disappointment, in some areas FPS drops below 30. This surprises me because my PC should be more than able to run such an old game in at least 60 FPS.

Here are my specs, by the way:

System:    Kernel: 5.9.14-arch1-1 x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: i3 4.19 Distro: Arch Linux 
Memory:    RAM: total: 7.74 GiB used: 1.16 GiB (15.0%) required. 
CPU:       Info: Quad Core Intel Core i5-7400 [MCP] speed: 800 MHz min/max: 800/3500 MHz 
Graphics:  Device-1: NVIDIA GM107 [GeForce GTX 750 Ti] driver: nvidia v: 455.45.01 
           Display: server: X.Org 1.20.10 driver: nvidia resolution: 1920x1080~75Hz 
           OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GTX 750 Ti/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 455.45.01 

Any ideas how to speed things up? I've already tried installing the D3D11 renderer mod alongside with DXVK and using this little program, but no luck there, the framerate stays the same. What I find odd, is that some people claim Gothic 2 runs better in Wine than on Windows.


Edit: I forgot to mention, I'm using the GOG version of the game.

I preserved long lost Linux native releases of Rune and Rune: Halls of Valhalla

Context:

Rune is a third-person hack and slash game developed by Human Head Studios and published by Gathering of Developers. The game uses a modified version of Unreal Engine 1 designed for third-person melee-oriented combat.

https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Rune

Both the base game and expansion were ported to Linux by Loki Software. Ryan C. Gordon, a former Loki employee, would also later port Human Head's 2006 title Prey.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rune_(video_game)

Issue:

Due to sudden closure of Loki Software, its retail releases are hard to come by. As the Rune: Halls of Valhalla expansion has been released shortly before the closure of Loki, it is literally not possible to find Linux version of the expansion physically or even digitally whereas Linux version of the base game has made its way to different sites. That resulted native Linux version to remain incompatible with multiplayer servers due to lack of expansion pack. Although, there exists a Russian version that converts the Windows version of the expansion into Linux version, that version is not fully compatible with every server and prone to crash.

News:

I finally managed to obtain Linux version of the expansion thanks to a fellow redditor. As a holiday present to r/Linux_Gaming community, I uploaded the base game, expansion as well as ready to go installation to Internet Archive.

https://archive.org/details/Rune_Halls_of_Valhalla_Linux

Original developer Human Head Studios unfortunately shut down in 2019, its staff has been absorbed by Bethesda Softworks to form a new studio named Roundhouse Studios. You can purchase Windows releases on Steam and GOG.

  • Steam:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/210950/Rune_Classic/

Rune Classic (Direct3D only): Rune + Rune: HoV with some visual updates.

  • GOG:

https://www.gog.com/game/rune_classic

Rune Classic (Direct3D only) + Rune Gold (Direct3D, OpenGL): Rune + Rune: HoV

mouse input lag in Wine games

Borderlands 3 and Doom Eternal both have noticeable mouse input lag that makes it annoying to play them. Borderlands 3 runs Wine-Staging while Doom Eternal is on Proton. As a comparison, Borderlands 2 which has a native Linux port has no input lag what so ever, but that maybe because it uses OpenGL. Doom uses Vulkan while Borderlands 3 uses DXVK. My GPU is a AMD R9 Fury and I'm running Linux Mint 20. Can someone please help?

How to Install and Run Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order on Linux - Origin / Lutris &amp; Steam Proton Methods

Hi guys.

As part of my ongoing series covering installing and running Windows developed games on Linux.

This time I am covering Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, and as usual I have produced a quick video aimed at new users of Linux.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-nsUJEH1wQ&feature=youtu.be

But for people who prefer written guides, see below.

Lutris Method

https://lutris.net/

Install Wine through your distributions Software Store or using a Terminal commands, for example on Ubuntu based distributions, the command is:

sudo apt install wine

https://lutris.net/downloads/

Install Lutris using the recommend installation method for your distribution, for example, for Ubuntu based distributions, using the following three Terminal commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lutris-team/lutris   
sudo apt update   
sudo apt install lutris    

Next, search for the game within the Lutris source option, choose the Origin script and click on the Install button.

For some extra performance if you have an nVidia GPU, you can add the following to the Environment variables.

__GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE_SKIP_CLEANUP=1   

Steam Method

Install Steam through your package manager, either using a Software Store or through the Terminal, for example on an Ubuntu based distribution, the Terminal command is:

sudo apt install steam    

So once Steam is installed, open Steam, and sign into your account.

By default, Steam will not allow you to install the game, and run it with Proton but this can be easily resolved by navigating to Steam / Settings / Steam Play / Advance, and ticking the Enable Steam Play for all other titles option.

Restart Steam once done, and you will now be able to install, launch the game and sign into your Origin account.

https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/proton-ge-custom

Although the game is playable at this stage, you will notice that some of the games instructional videos when you choose a Force power.

To resolve this, install Glorious Eggroll's Proton-GE Proton build. you will need to use a custom version of Proton, called Proton-GE.

First, click on the releases tab on the right-hand side of the page, scroll down to the assets section of the latest release, download the tar.gz archive and extract the Proton-GE folder inside.

Next, open your Home directory, enable Hidden Files, navigate to. steam / root / and in this folder create a new folder called compatibilitytools.d, and paste the Proton-GE folder inside.

Restart Steam if already open.

Now right click on the games properties, and under the General tab, tick the Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool, and select the Proton-GE build.

Once again, for some extra performance if you have an nVidia GPU, you can add the following to the games custom launcher:

__GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE_SKIP_CLEANUP=1 %command%    

Finally, for some reason Origin likes to write to the Origin folder periodically which can cause stuttering, but it is possible to disable this by making the Origin folder read only.

Right clicking on the games Properties, navigate to the LOCAL FILES tab, and click BROWSE LOCAL FILES.

Navigate to steamapps / compatdata / 1172380 / pfx / drive_c / users / steamuser / Application Data and open a Terminal window in this folder.

Type the following command: chmod -R -w Origin

This tweak can also be applied to the Lutris method.

As always if you found this helpful, please consider checking out my channel for more tutorials likes these.

Thanks

Ryan

My .steam file disappears when I try to go to where it should be

Hey! so I'm using steam on ubuntu 20.04 and have started to try and get Vortex Mod Manager working. However, when I try to add a search path, I noticed that my .steam file disappears from my home page. The only way I can access my game files is through the browse local files option on steam which I can't really do on vortex.

when I look at the properties of my .steam folder it says its parent folder is /home/[MyUsername] yet when I look its nowhere to be found.

how can I make it so my .steam folder will show up?

Linux Steam Third-Party controller not detected solved

Hi, i recently use my third party controller pdp deluxe+ for switch and Steam wasn't able to detect my controller on linux.

Solution

I use this command in the terminal and search for my controller --> lusb

output:Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0e6f:0188 Logic3 Afterglow Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller

idVendor = 0e6f

idProduct= 0188

Open a file manager in sudo mode and go to /lib/udev/rules.d/and edit the file: 60-steam-input.rules

I added those lines, you just need to edit idVendor and idProduct for your controller -->

# Pdp Deluxe+

KERNEL=="hidraw*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0e6f", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0188", MODE="0660", TAG+="uaccess"

Then restart your computer.

AOE2

Hi guys,

Im trying to play AOE2: Ultimate Edition on Mac Big Sur 11.1. Ive tried looking through all forums and guides to solve this but cant find a solution - apologies if Ive overlooked something.

So installed playonmac -> steam -> configure and added winesteam.exe-no-browser+open steam... to open with small mode. This was because normal steam large mode was just black screen with error message steam browser is disabled because no-browser was specified on Steam command line

After doing this, I was able to download the game. Then, when I click play, nothing happens.

I have tried to right click on the game and go to properties to change the local files -> rename AoK.exe solution but when I right click and try to open properties, nothing happens.

WineHQ doesnt seem to have a solution to this either... wine version is 4.12.1 when I click on configure wine

Can anyone help me with a solution so I can play this classic game?

Thanks in advance,

Wine(lutris) doesnt make use of my GPU - Simcity 4

I have just installed Simcity 4 Deluxe (SC4) with Lutris. The game is running without bugs or anything.

But the performance are quite bad. After monitoring my GPU I realised it is not used by wine.

The problem is not because of the game, I can see in its log that a graphic card is detected (the default GTX 470).

The game is directX (DX9 ?).

Also here are the logs from Lutris :

Brand new to Wine and it always "stops" working when I create a wrapper

I used Gcenx's unofficial version and I am baffled how to use it. (I am on Mojave 10.14.6) I select a WS9 engine, update to the most recent wrapper version, then select "Create New Blank Wrapper." After selecting a name that contains only letters, numbers, '-', and '_', the application asks for whether or not I want to install Gecko, I select my choice, then the application stops responding. The only thing it does now is just make a "Wineskin Winery is currently busy" window when I click on the broken window.

I am definitely doing something wrong. This is probably due to my incredibly narrow knowledge of anything computer related.

Thanks

Warlords Battlecry III

Has anyone here by chance gotten WB3 to work on Linux? I have tried both The Protectors and the Steam Version through both wine and Proton but nothing seems to work.

I can get base WB3 to launch with Proton, but it's unbearably slow and laggy - the guides online are all Windows-based and worthless.
