Automatically select prefix by exe directory?

I have a bunch of old games that can all be ran in prefix 1. I also have newer games that can only be ran in prefix 2. I have the games separated into different directories based on the prefix they would use. I plan to install more later on, but I don't want to keep creating scripts/modifying shortcuts to change prefixes. Is it there a way to have Linux or WINE automatically switch between WINE prefixes based on the exe's directory?

How do I become a WINE wizard?

I left Windows years ago. Recently, I had an itch to play some of my old games, and now I have a few clients installed. Some games work great in WINE, and others just crash and burn. Every time this happens, I go to winehq.org to mess around settings and follow the instructions for the bugs. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but it's very hit and miss. How do I get better at this?

What's the status on Eyefinity-like desktop spanning solutions on Linux?

To clarify, I'm talking about spanning one virtual desktop across multiple monitors, a-la AMDs Eyefinity or Nvidia's Surround. I'm currently running AMD.

I can't find hardly anything anywhere online, and most of the references to eyefinity are 5+ years old and are simply referring to standard multi-monitor support (I guess eyefinity was originally the branded version of vanilla multi-montor?). There's suggestions that it can be done via standard randr commands, but I can't figure out how and I'm tired of borking my desktop resolution settings every time I play with it.

My use case is to trick X-plane 11 into thinking I have a single 3240x1920 display (three 1080 monitors in portrait, like so) since the developers put about 1% of the effort into Linux display options as they did in Windows.

Steam In-Home Streaming Hardware Encoding

I've heard from people that hardware encoding should work for Intel iGPUs but I can't for the life of me get it to work.

I have a 4790k and a RX 570 and dxvk is running great but I always bound to software encoding. I'm running arch, have the igup enabled in the bios and have the following packages installed.

extra/mesa 19.0.0-1 [installed] extra/libva-intel-driver 2.3.0-2 [installed] extra/intel-ucode 20180807.a-1 [installed] community/libva-utils 2.4.0-1 [installed] multilib/lib32-mesa 19.0.0-1 [installed] multilib/lib32-libva-intel-driver 2.3.0-1 [installed]

vainfo shows the following so I believe I have it installed correctly.

What's the best performing AMD driver right now?

Just got my first AMD gpu, an RX 580. But which driver should I use for the best performance? AMDGPU? AMDGPU-PRO? radeon? Free and open is a plus, but ultimately I want to use the one with the best performance right now.

Also, is there anything I need to do before switching from my current nvidia card to my new AMD card? Will Linux freak out if I plug my new card in without uninstalling the old driver, for example?

Thanks everyone. Sorry for the kind of basic question!

Can I just say how much I miss Planetside 2?

It ran fine under wine and it was exactly the kind of game I wanted. A pure shooter with a crazy population and sc-fi elements. I couldn't ask for more. I played the shit out of it.

Then came the beast we all know, Battleye. I haven't played Planetside 2 since. I've been holding out forever, hoping that some crazed wine developer will have a frankenstein moment and create the Battleye cure, but I don't think we'll ever see it before Planetside 2 is long-gone.

Civilization VI: Massive frame drop after a couple of minutes of playing

Hi guys, this is my first post in here.

I am running Ubuntu 18.10 and am trying to play Civ 6 on it, however, about 5-10 minutes after loading a map and playing just fine for a bit, the frame rate just drops massively. It still responds, but is extremely slow and laggy. After exiting the game, the whole system and all other applications also run extremely slow and laggy, until I reboot the system. I have tried different graphic levels, currently using medium settings.

I have a ASUS ZenBook Pro UX550VE (8gb RAM, Intel core i7, gtx 1050ti). The problem occured both with the Nvidia verison 390 drivers and with the 418 version, which I currently have installed. I haven't actively installed any other drivers, kernels or other stuff to affect or controll performance. The PowerMizer options in the Nvidia settings do not affect the problem.

Is there anyone out there with the same or similar problem?

Help with Rocket League?

I am sorry if this is not the correct place for this; if you do know of a better subreddit to seek guidance I will happily delete this post and crosspost it there. I am a simple man and I just want to have access to my favorite RC soccer game.

Hello world! I am a bit of a noob when it comes to Linux; we used Ubuntu at a company that I worked at and I was so impressed by the responsiveness that I recently made the jump on my personal computer. I followed the Guide and I am set up with the latest Nvidia drivers installed (418 for an Nvidia GTX 1070), etc. on Ubuntu 18.04. I can run most games just fine, but for whatever reason, Rocket League crashes upon opening and loading the Psyonix logo. I've searched the Rocket League subreddit, Steam forums, askubuntu.com, and other sources and haven't been able to find an answer despite my best efforts.

I've done clean installs of the Nvidia drivers and I'm not sure how exactly to proceed at this point. I've run RL before on this machine on Windows 10, Windows 8, Ubuntu 18.10 (made the initial switch last week), and Pop!_OS 18.10 (briefly switched before reinstalling Ubuntu).

If you can successfully help me out, I will make a donation to the charity of your choice.

Running a program as a regular Windows user?

I'm currently trying to install Spotify in Wine.

(I know there is a native client, I'm going to install it then go into it's Windows directory to get it's .exe file to put on a USB, so I can run it anywhere, and yeah supposedly doing that works)

But Spotify crashes during install saying that it should not be run with an admin account and instead as a regular user.

What should I do about this?

Frosty Mod Manager not working

I recently go Dragon Age Inquisition running, and wanted to add some of the mods I used when I was still on Windows, but the Frosty mod manager does not work for me under wine. Currently on 4.3 (Staging). I have a pastebin of what my console outputs when trying to run it through that, and a screenshot because there's a bit I could only see for a brief second before it gets pushed away by about 1000 lines of the same thing. I searched what I got from it, but didn't find anything helpful, so thought I'd come here.

Output from the console.

gamerOS: an Arch Linux & Steam Big Picture based gaming "OS"

I have been working on a little project I am calling gamerOS (https://github.com/alkazar/gamer-os). I am a former SteamOS devotee who became frustrated with its limitations, bugs and lack of apparent progress, so I made my own thing.

For now it is only a simple script that will install and setup a basic Arch Linux based system that boots into Steam big picture. It does include some extra niceties like SteamOS compositor plus (https://github.com/alkazar/steamos-compositor) which fixes many Linux games, and also works with Xbox One S controllers via bluetooth out of the box (support for the controller does vary by game though unfortunately).

It is still very rough around the edges and definitely not for those new to Linux. I do hope that, even as a simple installer script, someone will find it useful.

Lodbias on Linux?

Hey guys. Just dumped Windows a few months ago and been playing with Solus distro (Best one i found yet). So my PC specs arent the best in the world: AMD A4-6210 APU With R3 Graphics 8 GB RAM (DDR3 i think)

I used to play a lot of Csgo back in the day but since i got this PC that is a no no. A friend of mine also has a bad PC but he uses this thing called lodbias/lodadj to run cs go on higher fps from ~25 to ~40 altough the game looks like roblox with Guns.

So what I ask is, does Linux offer this type of "resource" or do I just forget about it?

Are some of the TKG builds in Lutris not working correctly?

I wasted about half a day figuring out what was wrong with my Arch install with regards to getting DXVK to work only to realize that my tkg builds are not working unless its 4.4 proton with faudio. Regular wine works fine but not tkg 4.4 or tkg 4.4 proton.

To add I was just trying to get the Witcher 3 goty to work but it kept coming up with a black screen. It would launch without dxvk ticked in lutris however.

Did anyone else have these issues or was it unique to me?

[Arch-based distros] Proton-tkg is out! Custom wine+proton builder tool.

If you're in a makepkg distro, TKG, author of official Lutris wine builds and other gaming-optimized packages, just released an addon for his wine-tkg that builds a custom proton build.

It benefits from the constant fixes and features wine-tkg has, so you will be able to finally have an updated proton without depending on Valve or rebased forks.

Check it out at https://github.com/Tk-Glitch/PKGBUILDS/tree/master/proton-tkg and remember to report issues and also drop a buck at his Patreon if you find it useful. His support is top-notch.

Fedora 29 steam proton games not launching (but I fixed it)

I've been trying out different distros lately, my steam games are on a separate drive entirely so steam on each distro can pick them up without downloading again.

On fedora 29 none of the steam proton games would launch. They all had slightly different (but I feel related) errors. World of warships and GTA V complained about not being able to connect to steam api. Company of heroes had a wine error which was something like "this does not appear to be a company of heroes product, please try running it from Steam". Weird because it was being run from steam!

I uninstalled company of heroes and reinstalled it again (same directory, nothing else changed on the system). It worked. Every other game then worked as well surprisingly.

Just wondering if anyone else had this issue or has any idea why what I did fixed it?

Tl;dr Couldn't launch any steam proton games on fedora. The steam library folder was not created on fedora originally. Uninstalling and reinstalling a single game fixed all of them. Why?

Request - help making prefix for older game

Hey guys I'm hoping to get some help making an older game run properly through Wine on Linux. The entire program works fine except for shaders, I think there's a chance just a couple settings need to be changed and it would work perfectly.

The program is OE-Cake, an old physics sandbox kinda like Phun or Powder Toy. When launching the program through Wine, the boring graphics modes work fine, but the Shader graphics modes are kinda broken. The "fire shader" and "air shader" will display on a black background, all the physics work fine, but it's almost like it's an overlay and the transparency wasn't enabled so you can only see the fire and not the particles that caused it. Is there any winetrick settings that change shaders or compatibility?
Also if you have an older computer running Linux with graphics in software (ie. old ATI cards that don't have signed blobs) things get even wierder. More effects are rendered in Shader mode, you can see certain materials with special effects such as Water, but it's still over a black background and the shader effects are not being blended with the rest of the particles. And in the lower graphics modes, the normally circular antialiased particles are now squares. These graphics problems seem to imply some kind of different handling of shaders by different graphics stacks in Linux, which makes me think there is probably just a setting or two to change.

18.04 Dying Light on Intel HD Whiskey Lake 3x8 GT2

Hello,

Can't seem to get Dying Light to launch under STEAM on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS on my laptop. I am using a System76 GalagoPro with and Intel i7-8565U with Intel HD Graphics (Whiskey Lake 3x8 GT2); 32 GB RAM.

I am using the Open Graphics Drivers PPA (https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/ubuntu/graphics-drivers) and am updated to the OpenGL Core 4.5; which should be enough for Dying Light. Because of versioning weirdness, I have manually overridden the OpenGL 3.0 designation with OpenGL 4.5 using the following "Set Launch Options" for the game, under Properties:

MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=450 %command%

The game does not give me the red dialogue warning, but crashes after the white progress bar finishes going across the screen. It never launches.

What am I doing wrong? Or is there even a solution for Dying Light on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS with an onboard Intel HD Graphics?

Thanks

Switching To Linux Has Made Gaming.. More Fun?

I don't know why I felt like sharing this and I wouldn't blame you if you decided to scroll right past it, but I do feel like sharing it so here you go:

Am I the only one who has found PC gaming is actually more fun on Linux?

How would having less games to choose from be more fun right?

And why would games be any more or less fun to play on a different OS?

It kinda sounds illogical, but weirdly that's been my experience.

Last year while I was still on Windows, I was increasingly feeling bored of gaming and had a total lack of interest in the games available. I wasn't seeing much that looked particularly appealing to me.

I switched to Linux shortly after the "Proton Bombshell" was dropped by Valve, it was what gave me the confidence to make the leap, after investigating my own game library and finding the majority of games in my library ran natively or via Proton.

Since switching to Linux, I've become a bit 'invested' I guess you could say in Linux gaming's future, I've really 'joined the team', and I've taken to buying games that have native Linux ports as a way of supporting the game devs that support Linux.

Seeing a game has a native Linux port is a bit of motivation for me to give it more consideration than I would in the past, so I've been buying more games, games I wouldn't have bought before because I didn't have enough interest in them.

Hence I've been playing more games too, games I would have never played before, and enjoying games I would have never expected to enjoy.

The games I'm seeing on Steam are also different to before, now I have my store preferences set to only show me games with native Linux ports, there are games on the front page I would have never seen before.

And is it me, or are games that run natively on Linux, usually better?

Maybe not in terms of budget and graphics, but usually better gameplay. Not because they run on Linux natively, that'd be silly, but I just mean generally the quality of gameplay in a game developed for multiple OSes is usually better than a game only developed for Windows?

I'm starting to think perhaps the reason why is because a game made by a game developer willing to support more platforms and more stores, especially something as still pretty niche as Linux, is a game developer that cares more about customer satisfaction than purely ROI decision making, and hence puts more effort into the quality of their gameplay as well for the same reason, and maybe that's why those games are better on average?

Even if I switched back to Windows at this point, I think I'd still aim for those Windows/Linux/Mac games because of this discovery.

There's also a lot of excitement in the Linux gaming crowd whenever a new big game comes out, rather than before on Windows where you just simply expect every new big game to be available, because why wouldn't it be. It kinda makes you pay attention more to new games and get a bit more excited if they're available to play. There's also a lot more 'community' in Linux gaming.

So yeah...

Since switching to Linux, weirdly with fewer games on offer, I've found myself buying and playing more games, more excited about the games I'm getting, and enjoying better games, .. so I'm weirdly having more fun than before.

Anyone else had that experience?

Drowning windowed mode

Hi everyone.

I need Drowning to run in windowed mode. Since the game is built with Unity, the game provides a configurator but no in-game options. I can select the resolution and the windowed mode, so when the game runs, i see the game window as i selected before, but then the game resize the window to fullscreen mode automatically and i can't do anything about it.

I tried setting these launch options:

-popupwindow
-screen-width 1280
-screen-height 800

The first gives no changes.

The other two force the main window to 1280x800 resolution, but then again the game resizes the window to 1920x1080 fullscreen.

There is no config file inside the game directory, the only one is boot.config but is empty.

I see that everytime i run the game, the configurator "resets" the resolution to 1920x1080.

Thank you for the support.

game ports for stadia (linux/vk)

From what I have read and heard games have to be ported to linux with vk to be offered on google stadia. Does this mean that ubisoft and others might offer their games directly to linux players?

If you're going to delete your Epic store account, let them know their lack of Linux support is an issue

Many are registering to Epic store in the hope "meh, free games; let's make an account, Maybe someday they will support Linux"

If you care about those free games (or bought some), that's okey: you don't want to erase your Epic account anyway. This is not about damaging yourself for ideological reasons.

but if... for whatever reason you're going to erase your Epic account, let them know being so actively against Linux adoption is not good.

Its not good for you

Its not good for the openness of the PC's platform (which is on conflict of interest between Microsoft's Xbox)

The process starts here:

https://epicgames.helpshift.com/a/fortnite/?l=en

Click "Contact US" select:

[Epic Accounts]

Platform:[PC]

"Use the drop-down selection that best describes your inquiry": [Delete Epic Games Account]

If you didn't buy any game over there (only for free): let them know the reason is they are being dishonest and fraudulent against Linux (even actively undermining indie's effort to support Linux) and you can on Steam you can buy&play even windows's only indie games thanks to Valve founding the open and commercially viable Proton project.

Try to be as much polite you can: no one care about arguments coming from mean and offensive people.

Don't address the people directly, its the "company design" behind being dishonest, not the honest workers over there.

Steam lutris and kodi on htpc

So I have a htpc Mac Mini 2011 with Intel graphics 3000 setup with a minimal install if Ubuntu server and Kodi which works great. I'm looking at setting up steam and lutris using the Kodi add-ons. I already have a user called Kodi which is configured to autologin and start Kodi.

What Is the best way to have a second user and xserver running when I need to configure games in lutris and wine and dxvk for the GUI things? With the plan being switching back to Kodi to launch the games with the lutris add-on.

Would it just be a better idea to just install steamos on a separate partition.

Sennheiser GSX 1000/1200 is almost perfect in Linux

I'm pretty impressed by this little box. It really does have no drivers; I have all features working 100% using only the standard snd_usb_audio driver. Independent voice volume, HRTF, EQ, the works. It's all here, accessible directly from the embedded panel on its face. If you want HRTF on Linux (outside of the half dozen games that implement it internally), drop everything and buy one, now.

It needs some minor workarounds:

  • It appears to want to report its volume level in absolute terms whenever the volume is changed. Linux doesn't understand the messages sent, and instead interprets it as multiple volume-down events, even if the volume was actually turned up.

The volume events you can ignore using a udev hwdb entry. Add this to a file in /etc/udev/hwdb.d:

evdev:input:b0003v1395p005E*
  KEYBOARD_KEY_C00EA=reserved

Then run systemd-hwdb update followed by udevadm trigger. Linux will now ignore the volume reporting. The hardware volume dial will still adjust volume as it controls the built-in amplifier. The volume control in the OS effectively becomes a gain control, so technically you have more functionality than you would if it were working as originally intended.

  • Channel mappings are incorrect; Center/LFE and rear L/R are swapped.
  • Pulse only recognizes the voice chat output, not the main output.

For the latter, the standard recommendation has been to add static sinks to your default.pa, but there's a cleaner way. See this bug for the "proper" solution, which also includes a clean workaround for the mixed up channels.

Note: 005E is the USB product ID for the 1000. If you have the 1200, you'll have to check lsusb and substitute appropriately.

Opening any game restarts my computer (Lutris/Wine)

So I've run in to a bit of a problem. I never ran into any issue beforehand when opening a game on Lutris, all of it would be smooth sailing, but now any time I open a game it black screens and then sends me back to the login screen. I'm running Linux Mint 19, I've been trying to tinker around with settings but to no avail. I'm at my wit's end with this problem, so if anyone has any solution I'd be very much thankful!

System crashing during certain games

So I'm not sure how I should troubleshoot this. A lot of games are working, but some games - including Stellaris, Hollow Knight and PC Building Simulator - are causing my computer to freeze up and forcing me to hard reset.

Stellaris freezes up as soon as I hit play in the launcher, and Hollow Knight and PC Building Sim freeze after 2-3 minutes of play. I can't look for errors in the terminal, because my entire system freezes. I cant find anyone having this problem with any of these games, and Stellaris and Hollow Knight have native support, so I have to assume it's a problem with Linux, or my drivers.

I am using Mint 19.1. Ryzen 5 2600 and Nvidia RTX 2080 with Nvidia drivers. 32 GB RAM.

How should I troubleshoot what the problem is?

This is baffling me. Wing Commander 5 installs and plays ok with wine.

But when I tried to use lutris and play on linux to manage it's prefrix and bottles won't I can't think of anything I did differently.

Is that just a Wine or game thing?

Overwatch improve performance

Today I installed overwatch via the lutris installation script and everything worked out fine. However I do still get a lot of FPS staggering. I get read that it will cease over time, and it got a lot better but isn't very playable yet. How long will it take to build up the shader cache (I've played 3hours+ today and am not content)?

Are there any other ways to improve performance?

Specs: i7 6700 rx480 Arch i3 Gamemode and lib32-gamemode are installed

One problem that I have noticed is that when setting the overwatch launcher to stay open after starting the game the performance drops drastically. As a result I have to use a second instance of battle.net in order to communicate with my friends but that's okay.

I use slightly lower settings than I windows (still almost everything high) and get around 150fps. However those 150fps often feel like 30 or less because of the staggering I mentioned.

Should I install dxvk from the aur in addition to the installation by wine?

An other problem I face is my mouse and keyboard loosing focus (especially when switching workspaces), basically forcing me to either move the game around different workspaces and try to regain for us or restart the game. Does anybody experience similar issues?

Thanks in advance!

AMDGPU issues: Resolution changes when screen is turned off

I'm running Kubuntu 18.04 on a Ryzen 2700X and rx480 with a 4KTV. More often than not, turning the screen off for any amount of time results in the resolution changing to something much lower than the 3840x2160 I'm using, and the fucking thing won't let me change it back in display settings until after rebooting. A google search reveals shit like this happening on AMD GPUs for 9 fucking years now. How the fuck can this not be fixed by now? Why is it so hard to force the settings to stay what the fuck I set them to?

Duck Game help

I'm trying to play Duck Game on Lubuntu 18.10 using this patch. After installing the patch and trying to launch it I get this error:

Unhandled Exception: System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'DuckGame.Program' from assembly 'DuckGame, Version=1.0.6451.27778, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.

I've looked it up and it seems to be caused by xna not being installed/updated, however I've installed mono and xna40 with winetricks and the problem still persists. If it makes any difference, I'm using a gtx 950 with the nvidia propietary driver 410.

Doom 3: BFG Edition on Mac

So not sure if this's the right subreddit to post this in, but I have a slight issue.

So I have Doom 3: BFG Edition from Steam.

My brother wants to play it, however, he only has a Mac and doesn't want to install Windows in it.

Is there a way to install it on his Mac via wine (also, I wouldn't mind if you ELI5 since my brother isn't that tech-savvy and I'm not into Macs)

Thanks in advance!

Lutris question and games sugestions wanted.

Lutris: I'm on Ubuntu. The websight sugests using wine staging. Problem: the games I've tried to get working with that crash. Where as with 4.0, might be 4.1 stable. Those same games were playable. Is that guide just not up to date? Seems kind of weird to suggest people use the beta version. To see if DXVK helps is it really as simple as turning that on in options? Wouldn't you need the libraries in the games directory so as lutris can find it? OO I feel like I might have missed something from how-to's.

Seperate question: Any ideas for fun space adventure games?. Something silly and tongue in cheek.

For Dead Cells I have to disable desktop mode to work properly

After disabling desktop mode and installing and running xboxdrv it worked

When I want to stream it to my debian machine it doesn't work even if xboxdrv runs on both machines

Steam detects it on both machines just fine

Machines Main Linux mint 19.1

Ps. For some reason DsFix 2.4 doesn't work as well

Is it normal to have some microstuttering on some games?

Switched to Linux earlier this week, decided to download a few games from steam and overwatch from lutris. It seems like every game I play has some slight choppiness or stutter every few seconds. Games that should be super easy to run like TF2 and CS:GO have this issue too. I'm running Ubuntu 18.10 and have an 8700k + 1080ti. Overwatch via lutris does the same thing.

I've already set cpufreq to "performance" as well as installing the latest Nvidia driver (I think 418). I'm out of ideas as to what could be causing the stutter.

Getting Battle.net and Heroes of the Storm to run on Mint

Hello Everyone :)

I finally decided to leave that Windows farce and move to Linux Mint. However, I need to have my Battle.net and Heroes of the Storm apps installed - this is my last bound to Windows and I am not likely to fully switch unless I make it work.I have tried several times with wine only, then using Lutris... To no avail.

I would be so happy if any of you could help me out here... :) I am a bit of a Linux noob by the way so I could have messed something up.

Machine basic specs:

Intel i7-8700K

nVidia Palit Geforce 1070Ti

This is what I have been doing:

  1. Install Linux Mint
  2. Switch to nvidia drivers through Driver Manager; reboot
  3. Then I continue with config through terminal:

https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/Wine-Dependencies :

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key

sudo apt-key add winehq.key

sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main'

sudo apt update

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging wine-staging wine-staging-i386

sudo apt install libgnutls30:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 libgpg-error0:i386 libxml2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libfreetype6:i386 libdbus-1-3:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386
  1. I continue with installing drivers:

https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/Installing-drivers

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

sudo apt update

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-418

sudo reboot

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paulo-miguel-dias/pkppa

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

sudo apt install libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386

sudo reboot

sudo apt install libvulkan1 libvulkan1:i386 
  1. Then I go to Lutris page and install:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lutris-team/lutris

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install lutris

  2. Then I configure Wine runner in Lutris to use DXVK and ESync

  3. I press Install on Battle.net subpage on Lutris portal and choose Lutris to open the link

  4. Installation process starts, Lutris asks me to install some additional Wine components.

  5. I get to choose the language for the installation in Blizzard installer

  6. There is a small pre-installation loading screen for Battle.net, it gets stuck on around 40% for a bit and then the error message from Blizzard appears, that the installation could not be completed:

https://i.redd.it/lknqqja0dvn21.png

Where did I go wrong? :(

ANY suggestions will be appreciated, thank you all in advance! :)

Lutris and Arch Linux

Simply amazing! So far I have the following running flawlessly. Albion Online ArcheRage Path of Exile Guild Wars II Warframe Rim World

A few of those were Linux native but they were touchy. The only one that just worked native was Rim World. Albion Online needed some encouragement and the other four didn't so much as flinch running through WINE. I also have Skyrim SE running via proton.

Caveats, ArcheAge will only run in dx9 and path of Exile will only run in dx11 via vulkan. Still as someone who's tried to ditch windows as a gamer for the past 20 years this the most amazing thing I've ever seen. Good job everyone!!!

Dolphin performance on Linux

Hello, guys!

I'm interested in playing some Wii games on my notebook. I have an Ideapad 330 (i5 8250U, which uses Intel UHD 620 as integrated GPU, 8gb DDR4, 240gb SSD Kingston A400 for / and /boot and 1tb HD 7200rpm for /home). I'm considering buying a wiimote + nunchuk and a usb bluetooth adapter, but before spending money on that, I want to know if I'm gonna have a good experience using Dolphin, since it is on Linux (I'm currently using Linux Mint 19) and I don't have a dedicated gpu.

Thanks for reading! =)

Orb v0.5 (2D RPG)

https://youtu.be/7El_REYKE5Q

Here's a (somewhat crappy) video of an RPG I'm developing for Linux. It's inspired by the goldbox series of AD&D RPGs from back in the 90s, especially the battles.

This is v0.5 of the game and there's still a ways to go. As you can see, a lot of the graphics need updating and implementing, but the main framework of the game is there. Not sure when it'll be finished, but I'm hoping within the next 18 months, depending on other things, such as real life!

This'll be a commercial game when it's done, but it won't be expensive - probably no more than 8 or so.

Anyone did wine 4.x esperiments with .net installers?

I'd like to know if someone tried to manage . net installers to work (ex. Styx master of Shadows) as It seems recent wine builds are patched to solve many issues about that.

LostInLinuxAgain
Make Path of Exile, via Lutris, always/only run on a specific monitor.

I have the following setup:

  • 27" Acer - Primary display HDMI-0

  • 24" Samsung, to the right, DVI-D-0

I want the game to run on my 27" Acer display, and I'm trying to figure out how set things up so it does so, without jumping through hoops each time. Just run the damn game and it's on the correct display.

Right now, it 'sometimes' starts on the 27" Acer, if i open terminal, caja, lutris, click on the windows a couple times, then run the game. Sometimes.

Other times, or if I forget to do the digital hokey-pokey, running the game turns off my 27" Acer, moves everything to my 24", and when I exit the game, my Display settings are changed to 'Same image in all monitors', with 27" Acer not showing until i uncheck that, then have to move the Acer back to the left of the 24" in Monitor preferences.

I've tried devilspie, gdevilspie, lutris/poe configs to be using hdmi-0, xorg.conf has my Acer as Monitor 0.

Still, the game will randomly shut off my 27", and run on the 24". I'm so fucking, fucking frustrated...

I'm new to Linux, and have sorted most of my issues from googling, but haven't been able to nail this down.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

How is the gog integration on lutris going?

Unable to use controller in Rocket League - Fedora 30

I've been unsuccessfully trying to get my controllers working Rocket League for the past few days. I've been trying a Switch Pro controller and a Wii U Pro controller (which registers as a generic controller, I think). Both work fine in just about every other game and in Steam BPM, but in RL they don't respond at all. If I set the "Steam Input (beta)" option in RL to "auto" I'm able to navigate the menus, but in-game only the pause button works. This leads me to believe that the controllers are registered as P2, while keyboard/mouse is P1 (I've tried unplugging keyboard/mouse, didn't work). I've messed around with just about every combination of controller settings in Steam and tried some different udev rules. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Gameranger + stronghold crusader hd on wine

Hello everyone, i was trying to make it work both Gameranger and stronghold crusader hd multiplayer. I'm actually on Kubuntu 18.04, i have all dependencies and everything is up to date. Stronghold is installed from steam, so i'm using proton 3.16-8 with his own prefix.From the beginning everything worked with the exception of multiplayer, that was glitched so i had to use protontricks and install windows directplay. So far so good, the only thing left was installing gameranger. Initially i've followed the instructions from here :

https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=20206

"Install flash player Install mfc40.dll and mfc42.dll Override dnsapi.dll (native only) into your winecfg."

using again protontricks. Then with Lutris i've installed gameranger in the same prefix of Stronghold using as runner Proton.After installation everything worked fine even in this scenario. I was able to login,chat, join lobby etc.

Gameranger was able to detect the game and also to launch it when a multiplayer game started.
Problem is that when the game is launched i got endless loading screen while contacting the host if i'm trying to join a match, or on the other hand players are unable to enter in my game if i'm hosting. My connection is good and i've already everything set for playing LAN games (port forwarding and so on). I can't figure out what's the problem/what i'm missing. Thank you for reading

How can I make wine tell the program that I'm using that it's offline?

So, I recently bought Watch Dogs 2 on Steam at 85% off. At the price that it was, and since I seem to be one of the only people who liked the first Watch Dogs somewhat, I figured I'd buy it.

Like some of it's proton db reports would suggest (https://www.protondb.com/app/447040) it manages to show a little splash screen, then it does nothing else.

When installing it, I had seen that Proton also installed some stuff related to EAC. So what I'm hoping to do is if I can manage to convince the game that I'm actually offline, then hopefully EAC will back off and the game will launch (non of the online features are very important). If anybody else knows any other ways pass EAC then I will give those a try as well.

So how can I make Proton/Wine tell the program that I'm offline? Tried google and surprisingly coulden't find anything.

Just fyi don't restart your steam client if you haven't yet, the latest patch requires thai language support and libthai.so.0 + all it's dependencies (quite a few) to be installed to render (you can still access the game library but not the store, news, reviews, etc...anything rendered by the web engine won't show) These packages right now do NOT seem to be in official repos for most distros, been trying to get them to compile manually but i have lots of missing deps I'm having to hunt down and it doesn't seem to like some of the package versions on my system

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - Initial report

Hi,

The game runs perfect for me - almost too perfect (requires G-Sync/Freesync on, otherwise you'll see micro stutters when your GPU is faster or slower than 60 FPS). Maxed out is constant 60 FPS and ... what can I say? It's basically an improved version of DkS3 engine, hence was just expecting the same. So far seems to be like a day-1 perfect release.

Any question do let me know.

Cheers!

Tell Paradox you are interested in Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 for Linux

Paradox just announced Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. Yes, the long awaited sequel to Bloodlines which many were waiting for since Paradox bought White Wolf.

The game will be developed by Hardsuit Labs studio. Paradox are generally Linux friendly, so may be they'll release it for Linux too? So far good news is that they plan to release it DRM-free on GOG.

I opened a thread on Paradox forum to ask for Linux release:

https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/bloodlines-2-for-linux.1162040/

Feel free to comment there and tell them that you are interested.

OpenRA - Classic strategy games, rebuilt for the modern era

Today we decided to play with Westwood Studio's late nineties strategic titles: Red Alert, Tiberian Dawn and Dune 2000. All, without Wine or any other type of emulation, but using only what Linux offers . OpenRA is the answer to questions about how to do something like that. This carefully recreated Open Source engine is common to all three games.
OpenRA, in fact, allows Red Alert to work in a practically perfect way, just as Julius succeeds withCesar III. The engine comes with a built-in wizard, which requires only a few mouse clicks to download the original assets of the chosen game. The titles are very similar, but the graphics are practically unique for each of them. With OpenRA, therefore, the plot remains in a secondary position and it does not matter if the war takes place in a parallel timeline where Nazi Germany does not exist.

The game, in any case, always takes into consideration the classic confrontation between East and West. Regardless of the front you choose, the things to do are always the same: to build a powerful and productive military economy, extract gold, train soldiers and attack the enemy as soon as possible. In this regard, if you can launch an offensive before your opponent does, you will undoubtedly have the advantage.
OpenRA is a complete and highly developed game with intelligent robots, multiplayer modes and a rich set of missions, as well as fun tricks and characters. You will therefore appreciate the quality of OpenRA in a number of ways, including the well-designed interface where most actions can be taken from the keys. Finally, you'll enjoy a powerful network mode, ideal for the most ferocious battles with friends, as well as an exceptional game speed.

What a difference a year makes!

Around this time last year, I still had lingering concerns over Linux's gaming future. After the failed launch of steam machines and Valves apparent silence in the whole Linux gaming sphere, I must admit I was somewhat worried.

WINE 3.0 was launched, although it came without an active 'staging' team. It really felt that the whole Linux gaming world that had been built up until then was crumbling beneath us.

Sure there were those of us who understood that the whole mesa/llvm stuff needed sorting out at a fundamental level and that may be why Valve etc. were quiet, but we were scared.

Then something magical happened. DXVK arrived, staging got a new team, Mesa had some major updates and the flow of Linux native titles and ports started to look promising again.

Roll on August and Valve actually do the unthinkable, they put WINE into steam!

Since then the progress of Linux, Vulkan, Steamplay and the whole ecosystem has tranformed gaming on Linux to an almost unbelievable experience.

Roll on the future, and thank you to all involved in making this my 'year of the Linux desktop'!

Heh guys. Is there any recommended distribution for just gaming?? Also anyone know if I could use this on Manjaro or something no Debian?

Hey guys. So in short I have a extra pc I want to use as just a gaming machine for the fun of it.

Is there any distro thats recommended by any chance? I could only get my game to work on manjaro ( not Ubuntu :( but the issue is my WiFi dongle for Linux which was so easy to set up with Ubuntu I cant figure out how or if I can on Manjaro :(

[Opinion] There is a benefit about Google Stadia that is not discussed enough

Let me preface this by saying that I am not a fan of cloud gaming. I enjoy having the games on my own PC. But, then again, I also said that about music and movies...

Nevertheless, what doesn't seem to be spoken much is that Stadia is a new gaming platform, and it will run "native" on Linux. With this I mean, as native as in Windows. Linux will not be a second-class citizen with Stadia.

I don't know If I want Stadia to be a complete success, but if it does, at least for people using it, it will be one less barrier to Linux adoption. Games will run as good and as easily on as on Windows.

Google seems to be trying to make gaming ubiquitous and platform-agnostic, almost like web browsing. If it succeeds one less reason to use Windows, that can't be all that bad.

Upgrading hardware, have some questions

I am upgrading the bottleneck in my somewhat older PC. I have a 2600k, 12gb ddr3 (one of my mobo RAM slots died lol), and will soon be swapping out a GTX 760 for a 980. I intend on doing 1080p gaming and I would like to start recording, since this card really didn't let me do that and get any bit decent framerate.

I have been lurking for a while in the shadows, watching all of the support and love linux has been getting for games. I am familiar enough with Mint to install stuff and google things I don't know, but the reason for my post is I am wondering what kind of support Linux has for screen capture and video editing. Is this worth making the switch with the hardware I have? Any recommendations on stuff for me to read up on?

Thanks

LTT Gaming on Linux Update

Hey r/linux_gaming, as you're probably aware by virtue of me posting here, I'm about to take you up on your generous offer for input on the next Linux gaming update! That's not to say I want you to do all the work - I'm mostly looking for suggestions and feedback on how the state of Linux gaming has changed since our last video. I've got some info on most of this stuff already, but I'd really like feedback from people who experience it on the daily.

Specifically:

  1. Is there any pressing errata that we should address in the new update?
  2. What distro would you guys most like to see represented? I'm leaning towards Manjaro for its up to date packages, good hardware detection, customization potential, and pre-installed Steam client, but I'd like to hear your thoughts and experiences on daily driver distros.
  3. From what I understand, anti-cheat is still a problem for Proton, as EasyAntiCheat and similar don't like to play ball. Has there been any progress on that front?
  4. How is the ultrawide and high refresh rate experience under Linux right now (both things that can occasionally cause issues on Windows)?
  5. What are the games you most want to see working on Proton? (ProtonDB shows PUBG and Rainbow Six Siege on the top 10)
  6. What games perform closest to, or if any, even better than they would natively?
  7. How does Proton typically fare with games and applications that are not on Steam?
  8. How is the driver situation right now (eg. open source nouveau / amdgpu vs binary nvidia / amdgpu-pro)? How do older GPUs and integrated graphics fare in this regard?
    I see on Phoronix that the open source amdgpu driver got FreeSync support as of kernel 4.21, and 5.0 enables support for integrated eDP displays. What features are still missing from amdgpu that are present in amdgpu-pro? This seems to be a major plus for AMD users, since the open source nouveau driver AFAICT doesn't have G-SYNC or FreeSync support (nor meaningful Turing support, for that matter, unless there's more news on it that I'm missing)
  9. Are there any other important questions that you feel should be answered in the video that haven't been covered?
  10. Disregarding Proton, what methods are you guys using most often for gaming on Linux? How prevalent are solutions like Looking Glass, and are there games that work better on stock Wine? What about native titles?
  11. Emulators? I seem to recall bsnes/higan's byuu mentioning that it's possible to get extremely low latency and console-exact frame rates using VRR on BSD. Anyone have any experiences with that in Linux? Would you need to bypass PulseAudio and use straight ALSA for best results?

... Okay, that's probably more than can be covered all at once, but the more info I have, the better I'll be able to address the most important items. I really appreciate any input you guys might have here, as I'd like to keep going on the Linux content and the more correct we can be and the more user-friendly we can make it, the more people will be willing to give Linux a shot.

Microstutters in games on Ubuntu 18.04

Hey everyone, I'm here with a performance issue on Ubuntu 18.04 - I've tried playing GTA V via Proton, CS:GO and Dota 2 and in each of the games I'd have rather stable FPS until I would start moving, shooting or whatever. After that, FPS would drop to 10-20 and screen would freeze for ~1 second, which would occur every 30 seconds or so.

I switched to Windows a few weeks ago and now came back to Linux, but I've never had any issues like that earlier. Before switching to Windows, I also had Ubuntu 18.04 installed and all the games ran flawlessly. CS:GO had constant 100+ FPS, same as Dota 2. Hell, I could even run Witcher 3 with no problem, but now I feel like somethings wrong with my OS and that something important is missing. So, both native and SteamPlay games run awfully bad and I have no idea what to do. Right now I use Nvidia drivers 396.54, but I also tried using 390 and 410, none if which helped.

My specs:
i5-7200U

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX

8GB RAM

Kernel: x86_64 Linux 4.18.0-16-generic

Ubisoft linux game plan was..... stadia?

Going back on 2014 ubisoft said this https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTYzOTI . According to google they are working on stadia from 2013 on. So it seems the one & only linux plan of ubisoft was stadia itself. Nothing more than this.

Nvidia flipping and games

I've wondering how flipping is related to Vulkan/DXVK(it's pointed that this option is related only to OpenGL)? Because in D3D11 games i saw very strange behavior with this option and V-sync(in game) turned "on". For example Dark Souls 3: in some places FPS capping to 30 and draw calls limited to 1300+, but rest of the game it's 45-50+ FPS, but if you turn flipping "off" draw calls jumps to 1800+. Another game is Witcher 3: framerate is really crappy with flipping "on" but if you turn V-sync off it's went to normal. Similar results you can obtain if run game in 'Windowed mode"(works in DS3). I've searched internet and DXVK issue tracker but found nothing, so if you can explain me why this is happening i would be grateful! Thanks and sorry if i wrote something wrong: English is not my native language.

Will Google Stadia increase the number of native Linux games

Google recently revealed their game streaming platform: Stadia.

According to google it runs on AMD cards and the OS is Linux,

Do you think this will increase the number of native Linux games?

Assassin's creed Odyssey ran on Stadia, but has no native Linux version we as players can buy. It's sad that even though a native Linux version was made we cannot run it ;-(

Do you think this will always be the case, or that our software support will increase with the help of Stadia?

Just another Epic Game Store rant

Because if I don't vent I'm going to pop.

For so long, Linux has struggled to truly get accepted by the gaming world, and to enter the gaming market. It has been a continuous uphill battle since Linux first existed. For many Windows gamers, like I once was, I always wanted to use Linux as my main OS but just couldn't surrender to the idea of not being able to play over 95% of the games coming out on the market. We've been forced to just accept whatever Microsoft dishes out because of products they don't even create.

And now, just in the last 12 months, we've seen something happen, something beautiful, with the majority of games on Steam becoming playable on Linux, and things look fantastic for the first time, like there's a new bright future on the horizon, where you can buy your games from Steam, GoG, then play them on any OS, Windows, Mac or Linux. The timing couldn't be anymore perfect, with the end of Windows 7's support just on the horizon next year, and Windows 10 despised by 1/3rd of Steam Windows gamers, there's the real chance of Microsoft's stranglehold on the OS market slipping and Linux potentially finally gaining some actual users. Even if only a small portion of the Windows 7 holdouts switched over, it would be enough for Linux to become a mainstream OS and inevitably other companies would start to support it, and for the Windows monopoly to finally end.

A certainty? No, but a *good chance*, the best we've ever had!

And along comes fucking Epic and Tim Sweeney.

They make a rubbish tower defence zombie shooter early access thing that no one has any interest in, PUBG suddenly explodes on Steam and does really well, and Epic's response is to just make their game into a cheap asset flipping battle royale clone with a f2p model and lootboxes. Worst of all, this low effort unimaginative crap is a huge success, makes a fortune off young gamers in the worst way possible, and Epic has more cashflow than they've ever dreamed of and did nothing to truly earn it.

Their first move? Commence immediately an underhanded anticonsumer battle against Valve and Steam to just literally buy marketshare by grabbing as many 'Coming Soon' games off Steam's shelves before they release, and try to force consumers to come use their store.

There are many victims from this but one of them is Linux. Games like Metro Exodus. That game was platinum on ProtonDB on release, it just worked, it would have been a crowning achievement for Linux gaming, to have a great AAA game release and be playable on day 1 on Linux with nothing but a click.

But instead, now those games are locked up on the Epic Game Store, and Tim Sweeney didn't think it was important enough to even have search functionality or wishlists or reviews on his store before buying exclusives, let alone a native Linux client.

I can't describe the frustration of thinking we're almost finally there, it's so close we can almost reach it, Linux gaming can finally become viable thanks to so many stars aligning at the right time, another 6 or 12 months of things just continuing the way they were and likely 90% of games on Steam would be playable and huge swarms of people could potentially make the leap. Couldn't ask for a better set of circumstances for Linux to gain marketshare.

Only the whole plan is being sabotaged by Epic, just because they have no idea what real competition is and feel entitled to just buy their way into the market.

I use to like Epic as a company, now I can't name a single company in gaming I despise more than Epic. I personally plan to never send them even a cent for as long as I play games, I'd rather go outside and become a normal person than even install their store to play even my favourite games even if I could.

My fear is, that news headline recently that said 'Linux gaming is on a life-support system called Steam' is probably correct, and if Steam were to go under or struggle, so too would the only chance in a generation for Linux gaming and indirectly Linux itself to actually gain some marketshare. But even if Steam survives, these exclusives and this fragmentation of the market is going to result in many consumers giving in, and buying their games on EGS instead of Steam, locking them into a Windows only store, thus making it hard again to convince them to switch unless they want to rebuy those games on Steam after a year of exclusivity.

It shouldn't be possible for one company to just storm into a market and do all this damage by just buying everything up, and consumers shouldn't accept it, but it's happening. Is there any hope? Will Epic eventually run out of money before they succeed and eventually give in and stop poaching every game coming to Steam and killing the best Linux friendly gaming platform we have? Or are we doomed to spend another decade just waiting and hoping for another chance?

Can't get steam to launch

New to linux, just installed mint. I'm trying to get steam to launch, but can't. It just doesn't launch. Here's what I'm getting in the terminal when launching steam:

Running Steam on linuxmint 19.1 64-bit

STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically

Pins up-to-date!

/home/********/.local/share/Steam/steam.sh: line 828: 
/home/********/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/run.sh: No 
such file or directory

Seems like maybe a corrupted install? Is it saying it can't find the file it's supposed to run?

Everything I found online was people saying "Install from the software manager" and that fixing everyone's problem. I did install from the software manager. I've tried uninstalling/purging and reinstalling, but nothing is working....

Nvidia Drivers 418.56 Released

Release highlights since 418.43: Updated nvidia-settings to disable line wrapping when outputting to a non-terminal in command-line mode. From GitHub pull request:

https://github.com/NVIDIA/nvidia-settings/pull/37

Updated the nvidia-settings control panel to more accurately reflect the current availability of G-SYNC or G-SYNC compatible display settings. Added support for the following GPUs: GeForce MX230 GeForce MX250

Fixed a bug which could sometimes cause Vulkan applications to lock up the GPU when freeing large chunks of memory on systems with PRIME enabled. Updated the driver to restrict use of the GPU performance counters to system administrators by default. The previous more permissive behavior can be restored by setting NVreg_RestrictProfilingToAdminUsers=0 when loading nvidia.ko.

Issues when origin, specifically Mirrors Edge Catalyst.

So I'm trying to play the game and this has been my experience with origin. Looking to see if anyone else has seen something similar. I'm running Manjaro, Nvidia 418 drivers, 1080ti just to clear any of that.

To lead with, I did disable the in-game overlay and tried all the different tips from the lutris page.

I've installed origin first through lutris, it runs perfect and downloaded the game no problem. Then I go to launch the game, it pops up in a little black window and sits for about 20 seconds and then quits and goes back to origin.

Next, I did the mirrors edge catalyst script for lutris. The game when finally download runs perfect. However, origin freezes during the download every other minute, requiring a hard reset of origin, turning the 15 minute download process into an hour long process.

Does anybody have any tips or experiences with this ?

Crackling audio when installed with Lutris and Proton

Hey all,

I'm having a bit of a problem and hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

I recently decided to ditch Windows and go with a Linux desktop (Ubuntu 18.04). I installed wine 4.0, created some prefixes, and was successfully able to run many of my previously installed (via Windows) games with little to no issue.

However, I tried installing Deus Ex: Human Revolution through Steam Proton and though the game ran, it had crackling audio. Tried installing it via Lutris with the same result, crackling audio.

Setup my own 32bit wine prefix, got Steam to run and installed Deus Ex and this time it runs with no audio problems.

Unfortunately one of the Steam games I want to play, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, doesn't work when I install it via my self-made steam wine prefix (black screen when it launches), but it does run if I install it via Lutris, unfortunately with the crackling audio just like Deus Ex. FWIW, I tried installing a third game through Lutris (Star Citizen) but ended up with the same problem. Tried reducing pulseaudio latency (default-fragment-size-msec) but it didn't help.

Soundcard is a Soundblaster X-Fi Platinum (EMU20k1), CPU i5-4690k, 32GB RAM.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Civ 6, AC Odyssey on Linux?

I used Linux exclusively for over 10 years.

Was never a gamer, but recently started. For this I bought Windows 10 and on this PC I just run my games. Even though I have almost no interaction with Windows, it get's annoying from time to time. So I would like to see whether I can play my games on Linux instead.

Has someone played:

Civilizations VI

Assassins Creed Oddysey

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

via Proton on Linux?

I only used wine in the past. Now not sure how to get Proton but didn't look into it yet. Wanted to see if anybody plays those games on Linux first.

Transitioned to gnu/linux, but encountering problems with framerates.

Hi, so I just transitioned from Windows to Manjaro and want to use it as my daily driver. I am prepared for the hellhole that is getting wine to work with all kinds of games, but alot of the games I play actually support linux natively so thats nice.

I do have an issue though. I run xfce as my desktop environment, but everything is choppy. I tried switching over to Plasma, and wouldnt you know the issue was resolved. But I didnt like the interface and I want xfce4 to work. I have the latest propietary nvidiot drivers :)

What happends is that after configuring the Nvidia settings to run my monitors at 144Hz, I can feel it on my mouse, but literally everything else including games like garrys mod feel extremely choppy, as if it was still stuck running on 60 Hz. As noted earlier, it did work with Plasma just fine, but with xfce4 it doesn't work no matter how hard I try. Tried the composition pipeline settings etc. What do I have to do to get things working?

Best regards, A person that really wants to migrate to GNU/Linux for good.

Can no Man's sky visions run on ubuntu 18.04 with mesa drivers on integrated graphics?

I was interested because I wanted NMS on my Linux computer (I use minimal settings in nms so I'm okay with lag and stuff from non-discrete graphics) and j wanted to know if it can even run since I keep getting an error with AL saying that the current for the thread is being destroyed, there might be a possible leak. That error manifests itself as a black screen, then a gray screen that doesn't change. If anybody knows anything about this, I would be very happy. It may just be that my graphics aren't good enough, but the game dev splash won't even load, so I'm unsure.

How To Set Monitor Preference For Renpy ?

Anyone know if there is a config file for Renpy games where you can specify which monitor they use ? Renpy games always open on my secondary monitor if I fullscreen them and none of the games has a monitor option. I tried asking on the Renpy reddit but they just said it was an OS issue. Well it is as it only happens on Linux for me but it also only happens on Renpy games on Linux for me.

Gears of War for Windows (DVD) with Lutris on Linux

Processing img dmew4w3hm5n21...

Hi Gamers,

Gears of War (2006, DVD Version) is running with Lutris on Linux at the highest settings - flawless.

I'm using tkg-protonified-4.1-x86_64 with DXVK 1.0.1 for Direct3D 10.0 to Vulkan 1.1.101 with Nvidia 418.43.

But, always the second try is working correct it I click at "Play" inside of Lutris. I have to debug that with the logs.

Intro videos are all working and if the game starts, it is really working. No stutter. Also Games for Windows Live (offline) is working.

The window in the screenshot has a resolution of 1920x1080. My fullscreen resolution is 2560x1440.

I will update this post. I took a few hours to get it working. On my watch it's 11:48 pm. I'm done :)

Any idea why the second click on play starts the screen ? It's an Unreal Engine 3 game.

Regards,

Frank

Microsoft recently revealed that they are "porting" DirectX12 to Windows 7 and 8

This lull over Vulkan treading water at best with DirectX12 is only temporary due to fractured install base, meaning going forward all games will now just pick DirectX12 and I don't know the state of that translation layer.

Google's gaming push is VERY important, and you are missing the forest for the trees. OpenGL was once very healthy and then MS just crushed it.

Google is battling with MS, not Valve.

Can you use Wineskin to run downloaded Origin games?

So here's the deal. I have a Mac, my first Mac, and I purchased and downloaded The Sims 3 along with some expansions. Some I had as disks but a few I had bought through Origin itself. One of these was Late Night. Which I found out later doesn't work on Macs for whatever reason.

I know people use Wineskin to run PC games on their Mac; is there any way I can uninstall my games and then reinstall though Wineskin so that my Late Night expansion will also work? I'm not very tech-savvy so I really have no idea what to do, but it's frustrating to have paid $20 for a game I can't play on my computer.

Doom Eternal was just announced for Stadia. Stadia run Linux. Therefore Id Software has a version of Doom Eternal that run on Linux.

Can we bug them about getting some support for the Steam version?

Yes, we can hope for Proton compatibility, but if you remember when Doom 2016 came out? The beta worked fine in Wine, but the release had Denuvo DRM that made it unplayable. (although Denuvo isn't as hard to crack as it used to be)

Having issues using controller inside of games using proton.

Hi everyone,

So I tried playing Witcher 3 using big picture and proton with a 360 controller knock off. The controller works fine in the steam menu and the button to bring up the steam interface also works inside of the game. The game displays the controller buttons instead of the kb and mouse buttons in its own interface. But none of the commands from the controller are responsive. Has anyone had this issue, and did they find a workaround that they would be willing to share with me?

Stadia

Stadia is the new streaming game platform from Google. I'm excited for the platform in general, but they just announced that they are built on Linux and Vulkan. This is especially exciting because it should help drive developers towards native Linux implementations.

Doom Eternal was apparently developed on Vulkan, and so they were able to get easily migrate into Stadia. So again, any that might be leary of diving into deployment right off, the ability to quickly transition to Stadia should help drive further development.

Problems with my freesync screen and kernel versions higher than 4.19 in Ubuntu 18.04.2

Hi everyone.

Since freesync is now finally happening I decided to give it a try and encountered this problems when I use a kernel version higher than the 4.19. I use UKUU to install newer kernel versions.

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNJ2kJ8hsHA

I used my smartphone because recorder software (like OBS) doesn't capture the problems. So I guess it must be my screen? Also the same problem happens when I move over youtube videos in the browser.

Screen: iiyama G2530HSU 75hz

GPU: AMD Raedon RX 570

Mesa: 4.19.1 (Padoka bleeding edge ppa - I also have the same problems with the stable padoka ppa)

CPU: Intel i5-3350P

If anyone has an idea, I would be really happy

Why the epic store is vac gor everyone

Without steam I would never have been able to stay a gamer. As a I'm currently studying I can build up a sizable library spending $25 each steam sale.

I'm also on Linux valve actually cares and puts work into projects like proton and native Linux games. I will tolerate Uplay, blizzard and origin as they work fine through wine/dxvk and have functional clients with minimum features such as achievements, cloud saves , friend lists etc.

They don't have timed exclusives and are doing their own thing e.g EA games are only available through origin Ubisoft games require Uplay. They aren't trying to directly compete with valve no tined exclusives.

Tell me windows users do you feel the same way ? Here are some more reasons not to use the epic store

1 epic is owned by a Chinese company 2 the epic stores scans your C drive and other files in windows. Worse than M$ in my opinion. 3 the EULA states that once you create an account everything is owned by epic again worse than the windows EULA 4 missing core features 5 timed exclusives exclusive to windows 6 epic tried to steal valves game information All valve has to go to kill the epic store is change their revenue split with developers

For people concerned about your game launcher / client scanning your systems files....FIREJAIL!

I see lots of posts not just in thsi sub about programs / clients / launchers / etc scanning your private documents... this has been easy to stop for years now even on windows... SANDBOXING! namely Firejail on linux (sandboxie on windows) you can always look up all the different ways people sandbox things with firejail on linux but in terms of gaming i'll just post what I do with all my games both Steam and stand-alone things in playonlinux / lutris:
you can create "private" (empty) /home directories where your games will sit and launch from using this command:

'firejail --private=(location) steam'

this would launch steam in what looks to be a complete empty home directory, so that if steam decided it wanted to see your nude pictures it could try to scan your computer and get nothing.
I personally create a hidden folder in my home directory called ".firejail" and within that folder I create new folder for each game, or other program I want to run completely privately.

So just a more specific example, if I wanted to run Rocket League, I would make a folder in /home/(username)/.firejail/ called something short but memorable to rocket league, like rockleag. Then I would create a short probably on my desktop with the command:
'firejail --private=/home/(username)/.firejail/rockleag/ steam'
This launches steam in that private home directory, the trick is that whatever you install in that walled off steam will only be there, so your normal steam you open without firejail won't have that game installed.

I'm a privacy nut so I create a new steam account for every game I buy, then I create private homes for each game and launch each steam completely walled off from each other...

So just so we know, you have options to guard your privacy, try it out before something bad happens, don't wait until some company does something shitty and then complain about it.

Hollow Knight + Manjaro + X1 Extreme

The specs of the X1 Extreme should have zero issues playing Hollow Knight at more than acceptable frame rates at 1920 x 1080. This is proven out by the fact that, in windowed mode at that resolution, it sits at 60fps (limited by primusrun) all day with no issues.

As soon as I tick fullscreen (and still have 1080p selected), it stretches to fill the screen and frame rates plummet to 20-30. It's almost as if Hollow Knight (or Unity) is internally rendering whatever resolution I select, but not actually changing the mode of the display and forcing the GPU to render the full 4k anyway.

My testing up to this point has led me to turn all graphics features as low as possible to eliminate that as a possible cause.

When I start the game fullscreen, it automatically has 3840 x 2160 selected regardless of passing arguments to the launcher, and the resolution cannot be changed - I can set it to the absolute lowest (or any other resolution), and it will look pixelated, but the frame rates do not improve. There is not even the expected 'flicker' when you change video modes in most other games. Even when I choose to keep the new resolution, the video options menu does not display the selected resolution but instead switches back to 3840 x 2160 and continues to look super pixelated.

Compared to other games, let's use Cuphead as an example, I can primusrun that game from steam and change the resolution to 1080p where the frame rates are excellent. That game is also unplayable at 4k, so it seems clear to me that Cuphead is setting the video mode or changing the resolution using some other mechanism that takes a ton of load off the GPU, while Hollow Knight / Unity is doing something differently that just doesn't work to set a lower resolution on a hidpi display.

I have tried primusrun, optirun, and optirun -b primus with a litany of options. According to the research I've conducted before reaching out here, this line "should" work:

vblank_mode=0 optirun -b primus %command% -screen-height 1080 -screen-width 1920 -screen-fullscreen 1 -window-mode exclusive

I'm lost for anything I could be doing differently or whether there's a workaround (like maybe some xrandr hackery) I could employ. So far this is the only game I've installed on this device that has had any issues with resolution or framerates, and most of the ones I've been playing lately are using proton, so it's a little perplexing that a game with a native linux port doesn't seem to be able to handle changes in resolution in a predictable and useful way.

Lutris doesn't recognize runners installed with pacman

TL;DR - Title + latest version of every package (no git or testing versions)

I'm kind of new to linux, I started to use arch as my daily driver in both my laptop and desktop in last september and I'm loving it so far!

Thanks to this community installing most of my favorite games has been a walk in the park! I was able to play almost all my steam games (native and windows+wine) thru lutris and everything just works great (except Assassins Creed but I can't have everything).

So recently, having seen a post in this community, I decided to give emulators a try. I'm trying to play ps1 and ps2 games at the moment and I will try nintendo DS games in the future.

I already managed to play ps1 games with ePSXe but I'm moving to retroarch due to lutris integration.

My question is: having installed retroarch (for ps1) and PCSX2 (for ps2) with pacman how can I integrate them with lutris?

Lutris doesn't seem to recognize them as runners as it did with steam. It installs them again in its folder.

How can I make retroarch and PCSX2 being installed and managed by pacman and recognized by lutris?

Does anyone play CSGO Danger Zone at 1440p resolution?

Whenever I play CSGO Danger Zone at 2560x1440 resolution, my game crashes when pulling out my tablet after deployment. If I play at 1920x1080 resolution, it never crashes. (This is not the deploy bug from a while ago.)

I've submitted a bug here but haven't gotten much response. TLDR: I've tried all different combinations of hardware, settings, etc, but the only thing that makes a difference is what resolution I play.

The fact that I can't find anyone else who has posted about this problem makes me think it must be something about my configuration, but I've verified game files, rebuilt shader caches, completely reinstalled CSGO, and nothing helps.... I'm kind at my wit's end with this.

Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone else regularly play Danger Zone at 1440 on NVIDIA hardware without crashing? Is it just me?? What else can I try?

Reshade working in Wine &gt;= 4.3

All right here is a followup on one of my posts a few months ago about Reshade working with DXVK. This time its not about DXVK, but running Reshade with wined3d.

The problem with Reshade was that it always crashed with a stack overflow when using Wine's wGL and directX solutions. After digging in both code bases for some time, looking at the logs, tracing and discussions with some really helpful frogs, we found the problem. Reshade is hooking functions that are called internally in other functions in wine, which it also hooks. This resulted in cyclic calling of Reshade=>Wine=>Reshade functions (the stack overflow mentioned above). Problem found time to fix it!

The solution to this problem is pretty trivial and often used in wine, when programs hook internally used functions. A static wrapper function. There would have also been the possibility of changing the order of the called functions in wine, but I was advised to do it this way. The submitted patches have been merged in time for wine 4.3, which means people can easily try it out themselves.

Now that the introduction is done lets get to the fun part!

What is Reshade?

See https://reshade.me/ or use the preferred search engine of your choice.

How do I use Reshade?

  • Know the architecture of your application. To figure this out, if you don't know it already, run file your_program.exe and look at the output.
    x86-64 is 64Bit and 80386 is for 32Bit
  • Get Wine >=4.3, because this won't work with older versions!
  • Get the d3dcompiler_47.dll that matches the program architecture.
    64Bit: https://lutris.net/files/tools/dll/d3dcompiler_47.dll
    32Bit: http://dege.freeweb.hu/dgVoodoo2/D3DCompiler_47.zip
  • Get the shaders/textures for Reshade: https://github.com/crosire/reshade-shaders
  • Get Reshade: https://reshade.me/downloads/ReShade_Setup_4.2.1.exe
    You don't have to run the setup in Wine. It is easier to extract the exe with the unzip program of your choice! The executable contains both a 32 and 64Bit Reshade.dll.
  • Move everything into the program folder:
    d3dcompiler.dll, shader/texture folders, Reshade.dll
    Make sure you don't mix architectures!
  • Rename the Reshade.dll to the graphics API you want to hook.
    d3d9.dll for Directx9
    dxgi.dll for Directx11
  • Set the dll overrides in winecfg:
    d3dcompiler_47.dll: native
    d3d9/dxgi: native, builtin

You should be all set now to run your application with Reshade. Maybe you need to add the path to the shader/textures under the settings tab, but that's about it. I will edit the post to add missing information, if there is anything I forgot.

Cheers,Riesi

The linux build of Rust has been completely unplayable for over a week. There is no official developer response.

As you may or may not be aware the linux build of Unity game engine, Rust, crashes when launched from nvidia cards immediately and on AMD all mobile entities explode into a mess of eye shattering polygons, with weird colors and reflections shooting off all materials and items in hands exploding to cover screens so as to blind you when you put anything in hand. It was well received last week in a linux_gaming reddit post that they had an update.

This all began when the developers upgraded the engine to try and better support linux with Vulkan, which was an excellent way to boost framerates. It ended up bricking the current build of the game.

The developers have made no official response to either roll back the game nor about the cause of the issue or how they're addressing it. And from the heat on the forums I am unsure if the developers are even aware there is an issue or are paying attention to any bug reports at all coming from linux users.

It has been down since last Thursday and tensions are getting heated on the forums for the few of us that do want to still play the game but physically cannot. Users are already trying to reproduce the issue on their own Unity builds and may have reproduced the error and the fix for it even as Facepunch carries on unaware.

The only thing of note was a dev responding that the game playtested fine on their nondescript "Ubuntu install with the latest drivers"

Hoping for some support egging out an official statement from the developers to calm folks down!

https://twitter.com/playrust

Be kind, but please help Tweet @playrust to see if we can get an official & public response or time table on when they can address the fact that the game is entirely unplayable on every linux machine.

What dependencies do I need to make full use of window script hosting?

So I need to run some .bat files to update some component of my game (Elder scroll online harvest map addon), so far the script can't seem to execute wscript.createobject and said something about can't complete automation or something.

Do not install Steam and Epic Store in same Proton/Wine prefix, ever

Epic Store is being accused of accessing private Steam user data without permission. If you're willing to install Epic Store for some reason, do not install it in the same Proton/Wine prefix with Steam.

Resident Evil 2 Remake

I decided to run the game through Proton, and it's having some weird mouse glitch where the game simply won't allow me to scroll or use the right click in the menus. This glitch also affects the gameplay, as I end up either not being able to aim at all due to right mouse button not working, or am unable to stop aiming due to the right mouse button not working. If anyone else tries this game through Proton, I hope you will have better success at running it smoothly than I have.

Can't get Overwatch working on Solus

hello guys, I am quite new to dxvk,lutris and therefore need help.

I am on Solus and finished setting up dxvk, lutris and in my case overwatch with the newest official Nvidia drivers from the repo, I basically followed the GitHub wiki (lutris,dxvk).

My Problems:

  1. I must launch lutris over the terminal otherwise it's saying something like "System limits for Esync are not set", but they are.

2.When I start Overwatch it's throwing an error saying that it can't detect my gpu, but I got a gtx970

Is it a driver issue because that is what I am thinking, currently running on the newest stable gpu driver release.

CS GO extreme latency on Ubuntu 18

Last I used linux was about a half year ago, and I used to play CS GO without any problems. Now I returned to Ubuntu, installed CS GO, and it is extremely unplayable. Everything "teleports" around. I have tried:

- Reinstalling Ubuntu

- Disabling 801.11n

- I have tried playing other games like:

- Left 4 Dead

- WoW with wine

- Distance

None of them have any problems, so I know it's not the network connection. Anyone here met this problem?

steam installation deb9 libstdc++.so.6 missing although it's installed

New Debian 9, downloaded the steam.deb from the website, installed it and got messages of missing libraries. Installed them as well and got "libstdc++6 is already the newest version (6.3.0-18+deb9u1)." while trying to install that one. If I start steam it keeps telling me that I'm missing it.
Does anybody has an idea on how to fix that?

I am ready to change, but my hardware is probably not..

I am ready to change to Ubuntu, but I feel my hardware will give me more headaches than it should.

I have an old gaming laptop with 2 graphics card (Intel + nvidia). From what I've gathered running this duo is a pain in the ass on Linux, and have to log off to switch between the 2 cards.

Another thing I heard is that if the laptop has dual fans, one may not work.

After all this, is it Really worth having linux on my computer?

TIL Resident Evil 7 now works! Currently playing on wine-staging 4.2 using dxvk 1.01. Max settings no hiccups using a GTX 1080

Gotta follow the instructions in the link and it should work! This is huge imo. windows media foundation was a huge roadblock, but with this I'm now at 100% of all games I played on Windows playing in Linux land.

Now if only I could host games via parsec ...

A question about bundling properly.

I should preference that I've been flying by the seat of my pants getting my games to work. I'm not entirely confident in my ability to properly bundle .exe files into self contained apps. I use wine to play about two old windows games. Roller Coaster Tycoon and Sim City 2000. Other than using these programs I know just about nothing about how emulation works so please bear with me.

Before the Mojave update I had manage to perfectly create a self contained app containing RCT, complete with save files. Since the update the app bundle is broken, so I decided to reinstall Wine, Winebottler, and start from scratch. But I can't seem to configure the bundle to run smoothly. From the beginning of opening the app, my entire MCB will hang, along with really choppy frame rates in full screen.

If anyone has some advice for me or knows of a wine trick to apply to the prefix that can help reslove this issue I would be very grateful. (Maybe even help get my old saves back?)

How to play SuperTuxKart with multiple people on one computer. Actual HOW TO, not a question.

The first thing you need to do is create multiple users. To do this go to Settings and then add new users. Select offline user if you don't want to mess with passwords and email.

Then go to the input device section and add a new 'input device' for each additional player you want to add. If you don't do this, multiplayer won't work. They'll have to be different buttons for each new keyboard device you add, though you'll actually be all playing on the same keyboard. Not a problem, because you can easily play with one hand. When you make each new 'device' setting, make note of which button is the 'Select' button for each setting. (You'll have to scroll down to find it.) leave the arrow keys the same for each 'device', because you'll only use those one at a time.

Then go to the multiplayer menu and take turns selecting you characters. First hit the 'select' button and then navigate through setting the user and characters you want. When you are done, click 'select' to finish, then the next user hits their 'select' button and does the same thing.

When everyone has selected their characters, it will take you to the Race Setup where you can select your track and level. Be sure to remember which keys each character has to use and you're good to go.

Secret World Legends, anyone get it to work on recent WINE?

I'm trying to get FUNCOMs "followup" to their MMO The Secret World, Secret World Legends running in recent versions of WINE. Back in the day, I was albe to get The Secret World running in WINE pertty well, but that was a few years ago. Trying to get Secret World Legends running has proved beyond my capabilites. I was wondering if anyone here has gotten it running in a recent version of WINE, and if you have, how you did it?

What I've personally tried...

  • wine (standard) - 4.2, no native libs, also with vcrun2015, d3dx9, and d3dcomplier_43 native.
  • wine (staging) - 4.2, no native libs, also with vcrun2015, d3dx9 and d3dcompiler_43
  • wine (staging, gallium nine) - 4.1, with the above replacements.
  • wine (proton) - 3.16, no modifications

With all of them, the install will hang at the final part where it attempts to invoke "ClientPatcher.exe". If I attempt to invoke "ClientPatcher.exe" on it's own, it crashes, and asks me politely to send a bug report to FUNCOM. The error in the console is, when it actually throws one, is "cannot find install dirctory". I'm completely at a loss, and I hope that one of you can point me in a more functional direction.

Desume (Wine) Kills Battery and Processor?

I have a Dell xps 9370 and i am running desume (win version) with wine on a 4k display. I have used desume on lots of other platforms and PCs, but i have never seen desume consume so many resources at once. I have a core i7. When i openened wine for the first time and ran desume, it was so tiny, presumably because wine is scaled for a lower res display. So i changed the dpi settings to play the game and as it is running i notice that my 8 threads are being hammered at 50% usage and i can play for 3 or 4 hours before draining the battery completely. I think i understand the issues but is there a work around or something i dont know? I dont really want to switch to the linux version of Desume because it seems to lack alot of functionality. (mainly cheats)

How do I set up Wine to work?

Everytime I create a prefix I struggle a lot with setting up. I find issues as winetricks conflicting dlls/runtimes installations if I do it in certain order, or just not placing stuff where should be when it successfully finished, dlls not being found by the game even when having them installed even when trying different overrides or copying the missing dll into the game folder to try if it at least works that way.

I recently had to reinstall the OS and have to go with all that mess again. I do know roughly what things I have to install to run most games, for the other things I can rely on log messages to guide myself. The problem arises when, for example, I launch a game after recently installed directx11 with winetricks, but it somehow ask me for directX11 dlls and when I search they aren't there.

Is there a way or an order to do the stuff or at least a tutorial on how to set up the most common things? Like all directX versions, DXVK, C++ visual basic 20xx, etc. so it works without having to spend a lot of hours struggling with this?

nVidia - NVAPI and Wine

Thanks to a little project that made NVAPI able to be compiled as a standalone thing that you can install in the same way as DXVK, i have messed around with various stuff to implement some "real" readouts from the Linux equivalent of NVAPI - NVCtrl.

If anyone want to give it a test, and see what comes out in the other end, feel free to download here: https://github.com/SveSop/nvapi_standalone

This only works with nVidia proprietary drivers, and not nouveau. You also need a current libnvctrl for your distro to get this working. Afaik installing the nVidia drivers manually from the website should provide this aswell.

You would need meson/ninja to build this. If you already build DXVK, you should have whatever needed, but feel free to comment any build problems that arise on the "Issues tab" on on github.

PS. A nice app to test some readouts from your graphics card is GPU Caps Viewer. This can be downloaded from here : http://www.ozone3d.net/gpu_caps_viewer/

When did the shader issue in overwatch go away?

I just installed Overwatch via the Lutris Battle.net installer along with dxvk 1.01 and mesa vulkan drivers. I installed overwatch and played a match and I did not need to wait for the cache to fill for the performance to catch up. Ran at 1080p Low settings on a 980 ti and i was locked at 60fps the whole time. Im just curious cause last time i tried this 6-7 months ago there where a few more hiccups.

Trying to read data from optical disk(, I trying to play Heroes of Might and Magic 5)

So I got this HMM5 DVD-ROM, I am trying to read the data from it and input it to wine, but I am stuck not knowing what to do.

I have tried mounting it with, sudo mount /dev/sr0 /media/cdrm but I got no luck.

I have also tried sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrm, did not work.

When I do sudo lshw I get the output:

` *-scsi:2

      physical id: 3

      logical name: scsi2

      capabilities: emulated

    *-cdrom

            physical id: 0

            logical name: /dev/cdrom`

Note that is says "status=ready" when the DVD-ROM is in the reader. And when I try to use wodim --devices or wodim -scanbus all I get is this error msg:

`wodim: No such file or directory.

Cannot open SCSI driver!

For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.

For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.

For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from

the wodim documentation.`

It would be nice if you lads could help me, it would be great. (Thanks in advanced)

[Troubleshooting] Cannot launch Civ 6 on Fedora

Hello,

I recently bought Civ 6 on a humble bundle, and when going to launch the game the "preparing to launch" window appears, then closes and nothing happens. So far, I've tried adding \LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6 %command% \`` to the launch options, and have tried creating a steam_appid.txt file to Civ's directory and adding its appid, as posted here, and still no dice.

I do see that when I launch the game, I get

ERROR: ld.so: object '/home/"me"/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored.

ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libfreetype.so.6' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored.

./GameGuide/Civ6: symbol lookup error: /lib64/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol: FT_Done_MM_Var

as errors. I'm continuing to troubleshoot this, and any help and insight would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

Quick question about alt-tabbing

I have tried some Linux distributions on my older laptop however when I'm in a game and I need to alt-tab or switch to another program, Linux seems to take a much longer time to do so compared to Windows and it can be a bit more laggy at times. Normally I would agree that Linux is faster in every way but switching between games and windows seems to be a lot slower and less responsive.

Anyone else experienced this issue or is it just me?

I recently purchased two PDP Controllers. Individually, there are no problems whatsoever. In native games, everything works fine as well since PDP Controller support is in the kernel since 4.15. Using two in Proton introduces problems I wasn't having with the official Microsoft XBox One Controllers.

Proton seems to recognize both as the same controller. If two are connected, one is usable and the other doesn't do anything. Connecting one while another is plugged in will cause the newly plugged in one to be used as input leaving the other one doing nothing.

I have tried using xboxdrv instead of xpad but that only made matters worse.

I have confirmed this happens in both Kubuntu 18.10 and Arch, both using Kernel 5.0.2.

Any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated.

Witcher3 on linux – DLC, expansions, mods

Hello

I have played Witcher3 now, the main story, and like it a lot. It works fine on my Ubuntu machine, except a few minor details.

I got the game from gog.com and installed with Lutris.

Now I wonder if I can upgrade it with DLC, expansion packs, or mods?

I wonder if this will work with Linux, as most tools for instance for installing mods, are windows centric.

Anyone here have any experience with this? How did you do it?

Overwatch use Proton?

I have Overwatch installed using Lutris and I find it's performance to be okay, but it really lags a lot when there is a sudden jump in FPS.

I used this guide: https://forums.lutris.net/t/got-overwatch-working-with-proton/3999

But when I click Play in the Blizzard Launcher, it goes to Launching..., then back to Play. I even removed the new proton folder and configured the Wine version to use either Proton 3.16 Beta or Proton 3.7. But the result is the same. When I revert to the Wine version of tkg-4.0-x86_64 it works. Basically I cannot use Proton with Overwatch. I have even changed DXVK versions to 1.0.1 and 0.90, but no success.

Running Manjaro GNOME, Kernel 5.0.1-1.

Steam Windows Restores (what works for me and what doesn't)

After using Linux on and off since '93, I think there's enough compatibility for me to start making the full jump from windows. Yay! As I migrate my games over, figured I'd just keep a post updated with what works for me to restore from my windows backups.

  • Doom: All 80 gigs restored without issue.
  • TW: Warhammer I: Must redownload
  • TW: Warhammer II: Must redownload
  • Battletech: Must redownload
  • XPlane 11.31: Most files restoring from backup.

More to come as I go.

Games in foreign languages: where to find them?

Hey there, guys!

I don't know if this is the right subreddit to make this question, but anyway, there it goes:

I like learning languages and I like playing video-games, and I like it even more when I can do both at the same time.

For a while I've been using Steam to play games with foreign audio and/or subtitles and it does wonders to my listening comprehension, vocabulary acquisition etc.

The thing is that I recently switched to Linux, so I haven't been playing a whole lot. The only game I've on my Linux machine is The Elder Scrolls Morrowind (using OpenMW), but I'd like to find more wannabe-polyglot-friendly games. I've installed Steam, but since there a whole community about Linux Gaming I imagined it wouldn't hurt to ask if there are other platforms where I can discover new games to play & learn.

P.s.: forgive my quirky English.

Windows to Ubuntu

I have always preferred linux for servers, and I primarily run all Ubuntu except for when not possible.

I tried gaming on Ubuntu in about 2013, but I've been hearing a lot of buzz around it again, with 'Proton'.

How good is it, is it worth the switch? ( I really dislike windows at somepoints)

My hardware is a 2700x and a Vega 64, I've heard great things about Linux AMD drivers, do you forsee any issues?

Nvidia Drivers kernel 5.0 Manjaro

I have a Nvidia GPU :( I tried updating my drivers from the run file instead of my distros repo I updated my kernel which caused problems.

Taken from previous post https://www.reddit.com/r/linux4noobs/comments/b19x9o/nvidia_drivers_kernel_50/

"I tried updating my Kernel using nvidia 4.18.30 installed via .run file. To Kernel version 5.0-1 via manjaro settings manager. I rebooted and lightdm crashed probably due to the proprietary driver. Kernel 4.20 worked fine. Is this a common problem and why people recommend going with AMD?"

Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Addition - Installation Errors

I've just recently made the switch to Linux, and am trying to get some of my games working through Steam Play and/or Wine. The one causing the most problems right now is DOS2, which I've been unable to successfully launch through steam, even after following the instructions in the ProtonDB site. The furthest I get is the game launching to a black screen with the in-game cursor. Has anyone else been able to work through this issue?

Getting GRID 2 to run successfully

With the Humble giveaway I thought I'd have a go at getting Grid 2 to work as it is showing as Borked in the Proton database. Turns out it can be made to run, with some effort and as long as you don't mind using a crack:

1) Create a 32-bit wine prefix and copy your downloaded game files to the desired directory.

2) Using winetricks, install the following: dxvk dotnet35 d3dcompiler_43 d3dx9 vcrun2010 xact.

3) Install PROPHET crack.

4) Profit!

I initially tried using the unmodified Steam installation but as it is a 64-bit prefix, dotnet35 would not install. Eventually I resolved to create new prefix and install the game along with the no-Steam crack to smooth the process.

The game ran smoothly without dxvk for the first race but then due to some serious polygon madness I needed to install dxvk to continue playing!

Game runs fine with my OpenSUSE Tumbleweed system: AMD FX-9370, 16Gb RAM, GTX 970 (418.42.02 driver) and Logitech F710.

[Lutris] Updating from 415 to 418 drivers broke Origin

I was having severe hangs playing BFV (like 20sec every 5min), so I updated to 418. Now I can't launch Origin at all, with or without DXVK enabled. Given that the hangs were a bit game-breaking before, I'm not sure what to do.

No errors pop up. It just doesn't load.

Insurgency Sandstorm Linux community server?

I was checking this game's protondb entry on a whim and it says that it runs fine, but fails (as expected) to connect to official servers with EAC turned on, leaving only community servers to play on (which may or may not have anticheat at the whim of the admin). All along, I thought you couldn't even connect to multiplayer without it!

https://steamcommunity.com/app/581320/discussions/1/1750106661710658576/

Apparently the latter are unranked and don't give you XP or currency or something like that, and I thought, well, who cares? I looked through the Steam discussion page and on the subreddit and didn't find much mention of a publicized community server explicitly for Linux users that intentionally has EAC disabled. But the server client can be quite readily deployed on a Linux server.

Is there a Proton players community server that you know of? If not, is there interest in making one? I looked through server trackers, but there is no granular information about whether EAC is enabled or not on each server.

Questions from a transitioning gamer

Hi,

I am in the middle of fully switching to Linux, and removing Windows completely from my life. I have a few questions about Windows games on Linux.

I like to tinker with stuff, so I got Wine installed, with DXVK on top of it, but I cannot get Esync to work, as that requires Lutris, and I do not really need all of it.

  1. So, Wine is the basis for all Windows gaming on Linux. Its 2 additional components for better performance and compatibility are DXVK and Esync. No others. Am I correct?

  2. What exactly is Proton? I know what it does and that it is Wine based, but does it also include DXVK and Esync? Does it include anything else on top of it?

  3. Can I just install Steam, get Proton, and not have to be bothered with setting up manually Wine and everything on top of it? Or do I still need a separate Wine installation for things not covered by Proton (if there are any)?

  4. If I want to not have to open Steam everytime I open a game I have from GoG for example, can I run proton without Steam? (I have Arch right now, with everything I have talked about installed, to experiment, but I did not find a way to run Proton stand-alone) Or do I need Steam with Proton, + another standalone Proton installation that I can get from its Github repo?

  5. Is Proton (both Steam and repo) a stand-alone package, with no extra dependencies, and with Wine included inside of it?

  6. Right now I can install a GoG game with Wine, add it to Steam and launch it with Proton. Can Proton (Steam or standalone) actually install the games? I would guess so since they're just exe files.

Sorry for the large number of questions, but Google searches only partly answer my questions.

While it's the first time I look into Windows gaming on Linux, I am using it at work as a development environment, so you can get technical with me if you need.

Thank you very much!

Steam Link Anywhere =&gt; Steam Play as a service confirmed?

I do not take credit for this theory, but when proton launched I did hear someone speculating that it was the first step to Valve spinning up a large amount of powerful Linux servers as a streaming service similar to Playstation Now. With this announcement of the Steam Link dedicated hardware, Steam Link app, and Raspberry Pi's running Steam Link being able to stream off network with sufficient up and download speeds, I was reminded again about this theory. This would be the logical "next step" to testing the platform to turn Steam Play into something you could subscribe to and play from a larger library you don't actually own.

Not saying I like the service idea, but I do love the idea of going anywhere and playing my PC games on a my Phone, RasPi or Link.

Thoughts?

World of Warcraft freezes machine

The other day I was messing around with WINE builds trying to get WoW set up with vkd3d, I ended up make installing a build that didn't work, must have made a mistake along the way, anyway, afterwards I tried to run WoW through Lutris as usual (WINE version: 3.21 tkg, DXVK: 0.94 + ESYNC) to notice that it wasn't working; when I tried to launch WoW through Battle.net it immediately crashed and gave me ERROR #132 ACCESS_VIOLATION "The memory could not be "read"."

In my troubleshooting process I changed the Windows version for the prefix from 7 to 10, and launching WoW was once again successful, however, as soon as I log into a character, within 1-10 seconds, my system will freeze and I'll be unable to recover, ingame audio keeps playing, but I can't do anything (can't $mod+shift+q, can't switch TTY, can't reboot) so I end up having to hard reboot.

I ended up removing WINE with sudo make uninstall and manually deleted vkd3d, did a full reinstall of all WINE related things on my system, nuked the PREFIX made a new one, downloaded the game again, nothing works.

Already tried a myriad of changes but no dice thus far, any help would be highly appreciated!

Ubuntu ways to improve performance

Compared to windows my games are almost identical performance however they randomly drop frames on Ubuntu, with firefox open in the background and a youtube video playing the games performance is severely degreased.

My nvidea driver version is 410.104.

Ive set my cpu governor to always use performance rather than on demand.

Its virtually a stock install with the exception of installing nvidea driver, changing the governor and installing steam. Ive obviously updated it too.

My windows drive is on an ssd so I can understand the generally slower loading of everything but not the reason for huge performance drop with firefox/+youtube open in the background playing a 1080p video.

Manjaro vs Opensuse Tumbleweed for gaming?

Anyone have any opinions on this? I am on Tumbleweed right now, but im curious about the other side of things. I have googled and seen posts (on the Manjaro subreddit) about how Manjaro is better. Posts on Opensuse forums about someone switching to Tumbleweed from Manjaro.

Anyone here tried both? What are your thoughts? Obviously each distros respective forum/subreddit will be a bit biased towards that distro so would be cool to hear from anyone who just wanted thing to work and play games :)

Gaming on Windows via VM?

Hi.

I was thinking about changing my main computer over to linux. The only issue is all the softwares, games and drivers which is not supported for linux.

So I was thinking having a VM in linux running Windows, where I can install all the softwares and games which is not possible to get to linux.

Has anyone tried gaming via Virtual Machine to Windows?

How is the performance?

I'm using 3 60hz monitors and 1 165hz monitor (165hz monitor for gaming)

Yet another gamer about ready to make the switch

So, for a couple of months I've been using MX Linux on my laptop, which I use mostly for browsing the net and watching Netflix, but I've also done some light gaming on it. I haven't done much work in the terminal yet, I'm still a noob, but I'm not too intimidated by it.

I'm considering installing Linux as dual-boot on my current desktop/gaming PC to try out using Linux for gaming a bit more. This computer is from 2011 with an Intel i7 CPU and a GTX 980 ti GPU (post 2011 addition, obviously).

I'm also planning to build a new gaming PC this year, which would potentially be a Linux PC if I end up liking it.

I prefer to play single player games like Borderlands, Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Witcher etc, but also play Elder Scrolls Online (non-Steam version).

My questions are:

  • Should I be aware of anything specifically when installing Linux on my current gaming PC?

  • When I build a new gaming PC are there any hardware choices I can make to make it more likely to work smoothly with Linux?

  • With the games I'm playing, are there anything I should be aware of, or anything I can do to make my life easier?

Instructions: Installing Windows GOG DOSBOX Games on Linux (No WINE), Creating .Desktop Launcher

Much of this information is available separately in various forums and older threads, but I haven't found complete and thorough information all in one location. I hope this info is helpful.

The following steps provide Linux instructions for installing a GOG DOSBOX game released for windows (.exe) without using WINE, creating a custom icon, and creating a custom .desktop shortcut in the application menu for quickly launching the game. These instructions were created on Debian/GNOME but should work on Ubuntu/GNOME , etc.

INSTALLING DOSBOX GAME-----------------------------

  1. Download DOSBOX Windows offline installer from GOG.

  1. Create directory for relevant desired DOS game in DOS games directory; e.g.: ~/.dosbox/games/

  1. Copy .EXE to valid directory.

  1. Open terminal in directory and run innoextract on .exe, for example: innoextract setup_homm2_gold_2.1.0.29.exe

  1. Navigate to the extracted app directory.

  1. Find the *_single.conf file (this is a dosbox launch configuration file) and open it with a text editor; the paths in this file will need to be updated to work for Linux (some games require mounting a disk so two paths will need to be updated."

  1. Update the mount and imgmount lines by referencing an absolute path to the Linux files (change backslashes to slashes, etc.). Here is an example of a completed Heroes of Might and Magic 2 "dosboxhomm2_single.conf" file; in this example, the app directory in Linux is mounted as the c drive in DOSBOX and then the .inst file is simply referenced from c.

[IPX]

Enable=0

Connection=0

ipx=false

[autoexec]

# Lines in this section will be run at startup.

@ECHO OFF

cls

mount C "~/.dosbox/games/homm2/app"

c:

imgmount d ".\homm2~1.inst" -t iso -fs iso

cls

heroes2.exe

exit

  1. The game can be launched from the terminal using the dosbox command referencing the two .conf files, for example:

dosbox -conf ~/.dosbox/games/homm2/app/dosboxhomm2.conf -conf ~/.dosbox/games/homm2/app/dosboxhomm2_single.conf

CREATING A CUSTOM ICON-----------------------------

  1. Copy .png of 32x32 (or other dimension) to the appropriate subfolder in: usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32

Note: this will require opening Nautilus in root or copying using terminal; for GOG DOSBOX games, icons are typically located in the app directory of the extracted .exe.

  1. Refresh the icon cache by opening terminal and running: sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/hicolor/

CREATING THE .DESKTOP SHORTCUT FILE----------------

  1. Navigate to ~/.local/share/applications/

  1. create a new .desktop file using a text editor appropriately named with the .desktop suffix; for example: HoMM2.desktop.

  1. Create the .desktop file using the referenced template below (HoMM2 .desktop file).

Note: the icon value will be the name of the .png saved in the usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32 directory in the previous section.

[Desktop Entry]

Version=1.0

Name=HoMM2

Comment=Test the terminal running a command inside it

Exec=gnome-terminal -e "bash -c 'dosbox -conf ~/.dosbox/games/homm2/app/dosboxhomm2.conf -conf ~/.dosbox/games/homm2/app/dosboxhomm2_single.conf'"

Icon=goggame1207658785.0

Terminal=false

Type=Application

Categories=Application;

  1. Log out and back in, and the shortcut showing the game icon will appear in the gnome application menu.

Framerate plummets only when moving mouse, all of a sudden!

This happens in both Wine 4.3 Staging and Steam Proton. I'm using KDE Neon (Ubuntu 18.04) and Intel HD graphics.

The problem seems similar to this earlier post but there wasn't anything there that helped. I'm not sure when it started, but just like a month or two ago I could run Oblivion fine via Steam's Proton.

I tried installing Trackmania 2 via Steam and that worked mostly fine except when I move the mouse, the FPS plummets to the point of locking up for a few seconds and it's unplayable. You don't really play it with a mouse so I thought it was just a weird game-specific issue. Today I tried to get Jedi Knight working and the framerate was single digits and totally unplayable. I thought it was a game-specific thing -- I decided to try to figure it out later.

But Oblivion also does the same thing now. It didn't before, and I'm not sure what's changed in the meantime. There were some kernel updates -- maybe it's something to do with mouse drivers? As far as I can tell this only happens in Wine -- native Linux ports like Dusk, GZDoom, Turok, Din's Legacy have no issues.

I tried disabling compositing, I tried the thing linked on that earlier post. Nothing has fixed it so far. Unplugging my mouse and trying to use the trackpad does the same thing. Keyboard input doesn't seem to -- that's how I was playing Trackmania 2 without really noticing the problem.

Does anybody have any idea? Seeing as how someone else has this same issue, there must be something going on.

Systems specs for all AMD gaming build

I'm looking to replace my windows game server with a Linux one. I've tested it with a 2500k I had laying around but the low thread count can't keep up with the software encoding.

With that being said I have a few questions.

  1. How many cores would I need to ensure smooth gameplay while using in home streaming?
  2. Are there any plans for hardware encoding for in home streaming on AMD?
  3. I'm guessing HEVC is a pipe dream at this point on AMD but does it work oh Nvidia and or Intel?

MineClone 2 (0.50.1) released and is now available through the online content section of Minetest 5.0

MineClone 2 is a mod that aims to make Minetest be similar to Minecraft, and is the closest one to achieving this from what I know.

You can download the flatpak version for all distros with the following command, or see the download section for distro-specific packages.

If you don't have flatpak, see here.

If you have flatpak, install Minetest 5 with this:

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo && flatpak install flathub net.minetest.Minetest

Run Minetest (should be in your menu now, if not you can "flatpak run net.minetest.Minetest"), and look in Content tab > browse online content > search for mineclone or change to the "Games" section.

Lifelong Windows Gamer Wanting to Switch To Linux

In December, I got a 500GB SSD for Christmas and wiped my 250GB SSD that I was using. Well, I've been hearing a lot about Linux and how it's better for gaming than it used to be, thing is without gaming I would just bail on Windows all together. But I'm nervous so I wanna set up a dual boot Linux/Windows 10 setup. Is this a good idea? What should I know? What Distro works best for gaming? Any tips are appreciated!

In case it affects anything I run a Ryzen 2700x with Vega 64 on a X470 MSI Carbon MOBO.

We need support for paid-for software baked into the common package managers instead of different update mechanisms for each proprietary platform

It might sound counter-intuitive but supporting proprietary software "natively" would give people more freedom. Platforms like Steam use their update function as a weapon to lock-in customers, inertia is a powerful thing. Gog and co. that don't provide a proper update mechanism are not very compelling as a result. What if instead of a proprietary updater you could simply use your standard package manager?

Add a platform's repo to your manager once. Buy a game from that platform using a gpg key on your keyring. Whenever you request to install or update a game the repo checks you have the right to do so before proceeding. By standardising the install/update process you make it as easy for a user to maintain a game bought from Steam as from a bedroom dev selling direct. It lowers the barrier of entry for different platforms to come along with possibly different feature sets and give them a better chance to compete. Supporting non-x86 could be viable and seamless. The benefits and drawbacks are precisely those that come with a standard package manager and there's a reason they are used so widely.

It sounds like such a simple concept that it may well exist but if it does it's not being used. It should be the way things are done.

Microsoft just threw in the towel. Am I the only one who sees this as incredibly bad for Linux Gaming?

Valve and Steam are unarguably the single biggest reason that Linux is a viable option for so many Gamers. Valve has invested so heavily in Linux because Microsoft pushing their native appstore on Windows represents an existential threat to the entire existence of Steam and Valve's primary revenue source.

Yesterday, that may have started to change. Halo was announced for Steam. I see that and I hear Microsoft saying "look, here is our biggest IP and our most anticipated PC game in years. We're putting it on Steam. We're not going to use our exclusivity powers to push our own store." To me, Halo on Steam looks like Microsoft throwing in the towel.

Next moves? If I was Microsoft and I really wanted to get in bed with Steam, I try to get aggressive Xbox/Steam integration. Crossplay with Steam, letting you invite XBL friends into your Steam games (and vice versa). Then, just to prove it's "awesome", release Minecraft on Steam (because why not).

IMHO, Microsoft and Valve getting along is not good for Linux gaming.

If I was Tim Sweeney, I would get Epic on Linux before this happens. (it's also possible that Microsoft will release Halo on Epic store and that would make any threat to Epic nonexistent)

I don't know what's going to happen, but I know Halo on Steam is not good for Linux Gaming.

League of Legends laggy despite having high in-game FPS

Hello. I'm using the latest Manjaro Gnome distro. I've installed the experimental League of legends DXVK+dgvoodoo2 via Lutris and for the most part it's working great. I'm getting 200 fps locked almost all the time but the game still feels like it's locked at 60 despite the high in-game FPS. It's quite annoying for me as I'm using a 144hz monitor.

I'm using an Nvidia 1080ti with the latest driver. I've disabled G-sync and flipping from the driver settings.Force Composition Pipeline is also disabled.

I also tried the normal staging version of the game but it suffers from the same problem + the FPS are down by like 50%. Is it gnome that's limiting my FPS and what do you reckon I can do about it?

List of EAC/Battleye games with native support

Could you help me fill in the table below so that we have a definitive guide on which games have a native multiplayer client, which do not, and which are planned -- and any additional notes? A lot of these games I haven't even heard of, so your input would be welcome.

Below is a list of all EAC supported games from this page: https://www.easy.ac/en-us/partners/

I am not finding an official list of Battleye games -- can anyone share one?

I believe there are generally three categories: simply no support, natively or through Wine; native support or through Wine; or planned support.

Graphics Driver Updates

Hi everybody! What do you all do when it comes to updating your GPU drivers? Browsing ProtonDB, it looks like a lot of people tend to use very recent drivers. For some reason, I had assumed most people gaming on Linux try to stay a step or two behind so as to avoid regressions. Perhaps its cause only a limited set of versions show up when searching for proprietary drivers in Ubuntu and none ever seem to be current.

Also, how would I go about keeping my driver up to date? Would I need to Apt Install the specific driver every single time I want to update, or is it possible for Apt to know there is a new driver? Correct me if I am wrong but to install a GPU driver with Apt, you have to enter its specific driver version (i.e. putting the number 418.43 in the command when I apt install)

Thanks guys!

Broken Winepath?

I've come across a really strange error when I went to go run an application in wine, not sure what's going on but I get this;

wine: chdir to /home/user/.wine:/home/user/.cargo/bin:/home/user/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games
 : No such file or directory

I have setup 2 seperate wine prefixes specifically to separate 32-bit and 64-bit versions of wine which looks like this;

WINEPREFIX=/home/user/.wine:/home/user/.cargo/bin:/home/user/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games

WINEPREFIX32=/home/user/.wine:/home/user/.cargo/bin:/home/user/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games

I don't see what's wrong with these path prefixes, and there doesn't seem to be any trailing : semicolons or extras anywhere.

An open letter to Linus Tech Tips: We are happy to help

Hi there Linus,
I'm a sub and a linux gamer. I really enjoyed your linux videos with Wendell and your first Proton video. I also noticed that there are always heated discussions in the comment section because of things that people said they could have been researched better. I'm talking about, for example, the fact that you picked an older nVidia driver version, or that the video didn't show some workaround for some proton games, or the fact that you suggested to download some stuff from the web instead of using the repo, etc...
I understand that Linux is a very alien world when you first approach it and that passionate Linux users are quick to criticize things that are not correct. So here's my point: I think I can spear for everyone when I say that for your next Proton video "We are happy to help".

Are you unsure about some aspects of Proton? Feel free to ask!
Proton workarounds are a pain in the ass? Ask away!
You don't know what's better between developer drivers and regular drivers? Ask us!
WTF even is vulkan_icd_loader? Seriously, we are here.

I'm not saying that we should review the script, because I think that it would be too far, but we can certainly have a discussion, and certainly we are happy to help.

Signed,
The average Linux gamer

I have disabled IPv6 but still having the same issue.

Lutris - Game won't launch

I recently started using Lutris to play The Sims 4 and so far it had always worked just fine, until today. I clicked on the game's shortcut icon on my desktop and Lutris opened, but Origin won't launch. The play/stop button just says stop, and pushing it, then pushing play, doesn't work. I've quit and reopened Lutris but that did nothing. I tried to launch the only other game I have on Lutris which is Knights of the Old Republic, and it worked just fine, so I'm thinking maybe the issue is with Origin. Any idea what's going wrong here?

Sims 4 is $5 on Origin right now. Here's how to get it running on Linux.

Hey everyone. I just bought the Sims 4 for $5 online. Here is the link to that. Normally this isn't the kind of thing I'm into, but for that price it's worth it.

Getting it to run, however was a huge challenge for me because even though Sims 4 has a platinum rating on winehq, Origin, the steam like client that you need to run the game legally, is garbage and I couldn't find any up to date instructions to get it to work.

Here is the instructions for Origin.

After that Sims should be a breeze.

Good luck YMMV.

Linux for me?

Good afternoon all,

I recently just built my computer and was focusing on overclocking the entire system (which was very successful). Now that I've overclocked pretty much everything I could, my brain needs a new muse. So I suppose I will spend all the rest of my brain cells learning linux. The last time I used it was back in 2007 (my I.T. tech class) where my teacher gave me a live version of Knoppix. I'm not really sure what I want to do, I'm a heavy gamer but my readings show its really no use for me to try to game competitively. With anti cheats being very precarious and not versatile. So maybe down the road I'd like to game on Linux. Any good distros for a higher-end PC? And one I can kinda maneuver around with and learn something?

My big question is..... I have a M2 drive for windows, which has the OS and everything on it. I also have an SSD as a backup file / random storage. How I would make this as easy as possible maybe for dual boot? Any suggestions?

Thanks in advanced!

Civilization VI has to sync after every round. Fedora 29

I've installed steam from the rpm-fusion repository

I had to use

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/libfreetype.so.6 %command%

as the launch command for it to even launch.

But now in multiplayer over steam with 3 friends (who run windows) the game has to resync after every turn.

(With resync i mean going to the loading screen for ~20s)

Any way to fix this? Or a better solution for the custom launch command?

[Help] Sony Dual-Shock 3 on Ubuntu 16.04 - How to connect 4 controllers sucessfully ?

Hi Everyone!

I'm struggling for some months, to connect more than 2 PS3 DualShock 3 on Ubuntu 16.04.

I mainly use this machine for emulation and Indie Games on Steam.

My problem is the following.

Hopping to get rid of the Xbox 360 controllers that I use, I've got four genuine PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 controllers.

They are great, as the built-in battery helps a lot when compared to the Xbox 360 ones.

Well, at first, I've tried to pair the four controllers using SixAd [SixAd Repo], from the RetroPie script.

It worked magically, just like the PS3 way of connecting. The pairing process go without problem.

But with SixAd, I can't connect more than 2 Joysticks at same time.
When I try to connect joysticks 3 and 4, the lights just blink.

If I disconnect one of the already connected controllers, the next one in line, connects successfully.

After that, I started to research in other ways to connect the joysticks.

I've discovered that Ubuntu out of the box, has drivers for DualShock3, but in a newer version of the Kernel, a regression was made by a Sony employee to make the joystick accelerometer, behave like a mouse (WTF!?!?) Link here : On Reddit and here On Ask Ubuntu.

Well, now I'm asking for a little help.

I have an idea, of Blacklisting the accelerometer part of the controller, so it behaves like a normal controller.

I've tried the solutions on the Reddit post Above, but none of those worked automatically.

Other thing that I tought, was to revert the Kernel to the old version, but truth is, i really don't know how to do it.

Also, is there any way, to compile the newer Kernel, using the old version of the drivers that worked on the past?

I know that those last two sugestions I got above, are fairly advanced, but I really like to solve this.

If anybody could help I will be glad.

Thanks in advance!

What kind of games can I play?

Hello - I have a RTX 2060 6GB and I use KDE Neon. At this moment, I have windows 10 dual-boot with KDE Neon. Because most of the games I play are on windows. I usually have been playing recently, Rainbow Six Siege.

I know of WINE, and don't have any clue how good/or bad this works. Essentially I want to make the transition to fully Linux as at work I use windows and I fucking despise it. Yes, I'm a SysAdmin as well.

Can someone lead me in the right direction? Should I stay with Windows 10/KDE boot for the time being? What are some sorts of games I could play.

Yolomouse or alternative for Linux Gaming? (PoE)

I'm a big Path of Exile fan, but the in-game mouse gets completely lost most of the time to my crappy eyes.

Yolomouse took care of that in Windows, perfectly, but I can't get it to work through wine.

I've got it installed in the same wine prefix as PoE, running at the same time, in the same 'Windows instance' as PoE, but cannot get it to even see that Poe is running.

I've tried copying over PoE profiles from a Win 7 machine, but no luck that either.

I'm guessing I have to give up on that dream combination, but does anyone have a working solution, or alternative?

Specifically, I need to increase the size, and change the colour, of the in-game cursor. (or overlay? I don't know...whatever may work)

Thanks for any input, cheers all.

Turn off cursor-shaking for Steam Controller

hello,

I have a Steam Controller.

I want it not to shake and make a noise if i am scrolling with the mouse (right pad), but I can't find an option for it.

Is there any?

I also installed SC-Controller but also couldn't find an option to disable this there.

Issues with AMD Vega GPU voltage control

I recently moved over to Linux from windows 7, after upgrading my rig to recent gen hardware.

I built myself a full AMD rig with a Ryzen 2600 CPU and RX Vega 64, I'm super stocked with my build

Currently I'm Mint 19.1 with Kernel 5 and mesa 19 (Not that this matters, as running Fedora 29 on stock kernel 4.20, had the same issue)

Due to the sheer amount of heat the Vega generates, I was looking to undervolt my GPU to improve performance.

Testing under windows 10, the GPU sees some nice gains with changing the voltage in the overdrive tool. Temps where down and clocks remained higher after the tweak.

I ran these tests before heading into the Linux territory, as I wanted to see how it worked in windows and create a bit of a base mark to test against in Linux.

After the windows test, I thought, great, now to just replicate these settings in Linux.

Wrong!

This did anything but improve the situation.

I've set up everything, creating the mask in grub and am successfully writing settings to the GPU.

As soon as I modify the voltage and load the GPU, the voltage control goes wacky.

The voltages abide to the new settings, but only in the hysteresis/dead band around the clock in that P state.

Soon as the clocks move out of this band, the voltages go max, i.e. 1.2V.

Like if I set P state P6 1550MHz @ 1000mV and P7 1620MHz @ 1050mV, if the clock is around 1550MHz, I will see that it has set the voltage to 1000mV, but if that freq increase to, say, 1580MHz, the GPU will be set to 1200mV.

This is not just an issue reading the value, as the GPU performs worse after the tweak.

My GPU also unfortunately has coil whine (I'm in the middle of RMA'ing it), but this does give audio cues with load and frame rate.

The GPU totally changes pitch when it moves in and out of the set voltage. The GPU whine will be quieter when it landed in the reduced voltage state, and immediately increases once it jumps to the 1.2V state. The issue is also that it jumps between the reduced voltage and full voltage when it is boarder line, as the GPU starts to throttle when the voltages jump to 1.2V

I don't understand why it doesn't create a curve between these points, and all the tutorials I've seen, no one has complained about this when undervolting.

         P5                  P6                   P7
-------|     |-------------|     |--------------|     |-----1200mV
       |_____|             |_____|              |_____|
        980mV               1000mV              1050mV

Essentially this is how I see the GPU react to my new voltage profile.

So far, the best result I get from my card is to just change the power limit to 300W and leave the clocks stock, and I get a nice bit of performance and a massive amount of heat I must deal with.

Does anyone have advice for this situation?

Opinion on using Linux for gaming

Not sure if this is the place to post this but I am in need of third-party opinion on whether I should use Windows or Linux for gaming. Some of you might think that I am asking a stupid question, but I am stuck... I am not sure what to choose.

Introduction

A little overview on my experience with Linux to help you with your opinion. I started using Linux in 2009, but during that time I was basically fooling around with the system, I was very curious about what Linux is and just seemed cool. I stopped using it for a while until a few years ago in 2014, I did quite a bit of distro hopping till the end of 2015 from Ubuntu, to mint, to fedora, and finally to openSUSE. I wasn't satisfied with any of those distros, which lead me to use Arch Linux in 2016 since it is minimal and I can have the freedom to customised it to however I want. I had being using Arch Linux from then till today.

All those years, I haven't really gamed on Linux before because of crappy hardware and internet in South Africa. I am now living in Taiwan and recently built myself a new PC. I am planning on playing:

  • Monster Hunter: World
  • DotA 2 (Works since... Steam)
  • Anthem
  • Apex Legends (Heard that EAC will cause the game to not work on Linux, which is very unfortunate)
  • World of Warcraft - WotLK (Private servers, this I know works on linux with wine)
  • Spellbreaker
  • Torchlight Frontiers

Why did I use Linux?

I am a full stack web developer using Java and Nodejs. Used to be a PHP developer but didn't really like the syntax. I find that developing on Linux is so much better than on Windows, and I would like to have that same experience with gaming. I am quite well acquainted with the terminal, I am able to create my own bash scripts.

What rig do I have currently?

I am currently using dual-boot setup on my laptop. Windows for gaming, photoshop, and illustrator work. Arch Linux for programming purposes. That laptop has NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M, and Intel CPU i5... 4th generation I believe (Don't remember, typing this at work).

What is my new rig's hardware?

  • CPU: Intel core i7 8700
  • Motherboard: GIGABYTE B360 aorus gaming 3 wifi
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • RAM: 16GB
  • SSD: 500GB
  • HDD: 2TB

What is causing me to struggle with my decision making?

  • Not sure how well those games I want to play will run on Linux.
  • Apex Legends not working on Linux
  • Photoshop and illustrator. Have tried to get these to work on Wine but failed or it ran very slow, probably because I tested it on my old laptop.
  • Drivers for motherboard and graphic's card. I had tried to get the graphic's card to work before since my laptop had an integrated graphic's card installed, linux keeps selecting that one and not my NVIDIA one. Since I am using an Intel Motherboard, it will do the same? Not quite sure.

Sorry for the long post, but hopefully someone is able to help me decide.

I want to ditch Windows and start gaming on Linux, but don't know how to get playable performance.

Whenever I've tried playing games on linux in the past, the games have been almost unplayable even though many other users report being able to play those same games just fine. Im not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Which distro would you reccomend? I currently use Pop OS because of the out of the box Nvidia support and I've had lots of issues with screen tearing on other distros such as Ubuntu. I always have issues trying to manually install the Nvidia drivers and can never seem to get them to work properly.

My specs: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Raven Ridge ASRock B450M-HDV motherboard 16gb DDR4 Corsair Vengance RAM Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU with 2gb memory

Elite: Dangerous is using the wrong GPU with Proton

Hello Wine Gamers.

I need some help in order to run Elite: Dangerous on an all-AMD system.

Thing is, my system has a Ryzen 2400G with built-in Vega GPU (that I need if I want host video while passing the discrete GPU to a VM) and an a discrete Radeon RX580. The motherboard is an ASUS ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming.

Due to the way my UEFI BIOS works, when it's set up to allow both GPUs, the Vega is always selected as boot GPU, no matter what I try. The result of this is that Vulkan enumerates the built-in Vega as device 0 and the RX580 as 1.

When I run ED, it starts reeealy slow, because it takes the Vega as the primary GPU, and it gives me no option to change after I get to the settings menu, which means even setting the game to 1080p, low settings, it still runs like crap.

I tried setting DXVK_FILTER_DEVICE_NAME to 'AMD RADV POLARIS10' in an attempt to force it to use the RX580, but the result is the game generates an error, saying that a suitable GPU could no be found.

Is there any way to hide the built-in GPU from Vulkan/DXVK without detaching the device from the kernel driver ?

Thanks in advance.

It's like owning a console.

Sometimes people ask me what it's like gaming in Linux. I tell them it's like owning a console. I know when I buy a PS4 that I'm not going to get most of the games that come out for the Switch or the Xbone, and vice versa. That doesn't make it a terrible decision or a bad platform.

This analogy has helped convey it to some people who otherwise didn't get it. I hope some of you can use it.

Militant Windows Users

It can be so exhausting being a Linux user who wants to play games or even just a Linux user. People can be so rude and use marketshare or whatever they can to beat you down and try to make you use Windows. People literally go out of their way to call you an idiot for using Linux.

Does this happen to you guys frequently? I dont even feel like I can go to community forums or whatever cause as soon as I mention Linux I'm apparently a tech newbie loser who needs to die. I feel like the only thing to do is to completely pull out of those communities which is really just a no solution solution.

Its really hard to stay civil when youre getting berated and insulted.

I know that this is just a rant and has probably been talked about many times. I think the only thing worse would be a FreeBSD user in a Windows dominated community.

Issue with Paradox games and AMD vega?

Hello guys, I have an issue that seems to happen with some newer Paradox games(Hoi4 and Cities Skylines) and the AMD Vega 8 APU.

Now this APU was very unstable upon release, so newer kernels have fixed so many bugs, but this one bug persists and HoI4 is one of my favourite games. I am on kernel 4.20 ATM.

Basically whenever I play HoI4 or Cities skylines, after an hour or so(random, sometimes minutes sometimes, several hours), my PC goes into a complete lock up(mouse not moving, nothing moving).

Any ideas to help me out?

Why do games based on same engines, like Path, Unity and Unreal Engine perform so diffrently on the same machine but for different games?

Hi, so I own several games which are either based on Unity, Path or Unreal Engine and while on one side games perform quite well, others do absolutely not. This of course takes into consideration a configuration of medium or sometimes lowest graphics pre- setting and same resolution for the same Engine but different game.

For example Unity 3d: Layers of Fear vs Among the Sleep vs The Long Dark: All set to medium, 720p : Among the Sleep simply rocks with high settings while the other two must be tuned down heavily to be playable...

Unreal Engine: Outlast vs Alien Rage vs Life is Strange: Alien Rage is somewhat unplaybale in 720p while the other two rock in medium settings....

Path Engine: The Witcher 2 vs Shadow of Mordor: I can tune around in Witcher and never get more than 20fps while Shadow of Mordor can be tweaked to a playable point....

I have a dated Thinkpad with an 4980hq, Iris Graphics. One would argue that most games are not optimized for Intel graphics but for Nvidia and AMD, bla bla bla. I get and accept that. BUT we are not only talking about games but the underlying engine, which on one hand seems to be perfectly capable to produce good results and then on the other hand not. Why is this so?

Battle.net App: Failing to run Agent

This may be a long post because I'm very new to wine, and I only know enough to know how much I don't. I'm going to give you a rundown of everything I've done since trying to start this 24 hours ago.

Note: I'm able to post more info as needed, but since I don't know what will be helpful I'll keep it to a minimum until requested.

Yesterday I installed Linux Mint 19, updated it to the latest version, installed nvidia drivers (running a GeForce 1080) and I had installed PlayOnLinux from the Software Manager.

I attempted to install Battle.net because I'm trying to get World of Warcraft up and running without a dependency on Windows to do so. I would then realize that I couldn't even get the installer to do much of anything but error out of the gate.

Fast forward to an hour of reading forum posts that didn't quite describe my problem, I decided 'screw it, I'll do it manually!' and I installed Wine Staging (latest Bionic) through the winehq repos. And then imagine my surprise: everything was working perfectly!

Except for crashes upon loading in-game for WoW. The game launched just fine, but logging in with a character would cause everything to come crashing down.

I decided that instead of trying to keep going it the manual route, I'd give Lutris a shot.

DXVK setup instructions had me download a later nvidia driver (from 390 -> 418) and a couple of Vulkan related packages. Now here's where things got highly frustrating for me.

Like the fool I am I decided to delete my old wine prefix in favor of the new one that was being created, and then I hit the roadblock I've been unable to get around ever since.

Stuck on Updating Agent, followed by an error message sending me to BLZBNTBTS0000005C.

I've tried several things. I've installed every dependency and missing library I could find, hoping that someone else's problem had been fixed in the way mine could be. Except that none of them worked. All of the dependencies I'd taken care of when following setup guides on the Lutris site.

So finding myself pining for the critical errors I'd gotten before, albeit further in the process (because at least the launcher worked perfectly), I decided to recreate it and go back to wine-staging 4.3, and install the application again...

And I was met with the same error as through Lutris. I went so far as to clear wine from my system entirely and reinstall, thinking that it would help, but no luck. I'm very unsure as to what's going on, but I'm sure it has to be a configuration error, as I know that it can work.

I've tried installing IE inside the prefix, various library overrides that pop up when the error code is mentioned, and I'm still stuck on that error screen.

I don't post on Reddit often, but this has me completely stumped. Any help is appreciated, and as I've stated before, specific information is available upon request. Consider me your proxy to my system.

Thank you again.

Wanting to move to Linux

As the title says, I've been looking to move to linux because of crappy windows bloatware. The thing is, my experience with Linux (Mainly Kubuntu and Manjaro) it's pretty minimum. My pc specs are I have an Atlhon 200GE, 8GB of RAM at 2666mhz and integrated radeon vega 3, it's really low-end but I can play almost anything I want smoothly (On low presets, obviously). I only use my pc for gaming, I mainly play GTA V and LoL. Does anyone have any advice regarding drivers and that sort of thing that migh help me? Or will my experience with gaming on Linux will be bad because of my hardware? Any help will be appreciated.

Install Tafferpatch for Thief II

hello,

I want to play Thief2 via Steam/Proton.

I am on Mint 19.1

In ProtonDB https://www.protondb.com/app/211740 it says I download Tafferpatch and then execute this:

But I get

In fact the folder 211740 does not exist.

Then I tried to execute only

Why do some game controllers only work in some games?

My XB1 pad works basically always, but that PS1 controller I'm using through a 3rd party adapter doesn't work in some games, like MK10 right now.

Sometimes it depends on whether I have 3rd party controller support enabled in Steam. At times I need that switched off, sometimes on. But what if it just doesn't work? Is there something you can still do, or are you just SOL then because the game is just doing something stupid? I was under the impression that the difference between XInput and DInput doesn't matter in Linux and it should just work.

Hi,

so I really like this game but I do experience some strange behavior. If I start the game, it has micro lags from the start, it's no shader stutter, cause sound hangs as well. If I then change the window type to anything from anything (fullscreen, windowed, borderless) the stutter is gone. That would be no problem, if not the shader cache starts building a new after that. It's no dxvk stutter, cause the sound lags as well. I applied kron4ks FAudio build from github but it didn't change a thing.

Do you maybe have an idea, what could be going on?

My system specs: R5 1600x / Vega 64 undervolted, custom liquid cooled, 16 GB RAM, Linux 5.0 and padoka-devel Mesa maxed to the latest, dxvk 1.0, wine 4.2-tkg.

Thank you in advance, Greetings ~ent

My daughters and I all have it on our computers, made our online accounts, and tried everything we could think of, but can't figure it out.

When I look online, it appears that there is a screen that allows for setting up a server, but can't find that screen.

Has this not been implemented?

I don't know if its been laid out on this sub, but if you're a fan of both Linux and Eve Online you've either jumped through hoops to get this game to play, or failed completely like i have, until now.

Installing Eve through Steam with Proton and latest graphics drivers it runs, easy. The launcher is indeed a bit twitchy and graphics of the actual game client is running about 95%, for me. GO FORTH AND PLAY!

*please excuse, I'm a bit excited*

For example if I add that miguel repo to Ubuntu 18.04 and get the latest stable mesa (18.3.3 i think) but leave the kernel at 4.15 is that okay? Seems okay but I wonder if doing this is asking for trouble down the road.

On a related note, what are the implications of updating the kernel and mesa on an increasingly aging base platform like 18.04? Is this also something that could go wrong?

Hi. Hopefully it is allowed to ask for support here.

I went and installed Grim Dawn via Lutris 0.5. I've also got wine-staging 4.2 installed. The installer finishes installing Grim Dawn, DX9 Redist, several Visual C++ runtimes, but then fails in Visual C++ Redist 2012 (x64). The error Wine throws is "Runtime Error (at 73:1379):" When I click ok, wine throws another error; "Runtime Error (at 211:814): Out of Global Vars range." When I click OK again, wine throws error "Invalid Opcode".

Is this something I should fix? If yes, how?

And when I launch the game, either I get nothing but black screen, or instead of black screen I get nothing or I get the loading screen that appears before main screen, but loading never finishes. In each three cases I have no choice but to terminate the process.

Running on Manjaro, Ryzen 1700 and GeForce 1070 with NVIDIA proprietary drivers.

Folks,

Using G-Sync/FreeSync is a game changer (no pun intended). Even if the framerate is between 40-60, the screen is very smooth and it does make a difference. Colossal.

I have been running G-Sync/FreeSync on my Acer XR341CK and it works ok - please note this is a proper FreeSync monitor.

I've been testing both OpenGL and Vulkan titles, they all work with G-Sync/FreeSync.

The downside so far is that every n minutes (can be 3 or 5 or more), the screen suddenly turns black. No crash no nothing, and after 3 seconds comes back. I've removed all the auto-locks and screensaver options, seems to happen less often.

What's your experience so far?

I've managed to launch Original Sin 1 EE from gog using these instructions: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/User:Gnanini/Divinity:_Original_Sin_EE_-_GoG

Link to code: https://gist.github.com/romanoaugusto88/eb6a2598fb10d1468da6f4497b0fa2de#file-divos-hack-c-L27

However, once I start playing, every few seconds the screen goes black for a while, and then back to normal. It seems to do so at random, but frequency makes the game unplayable. I've read that disabling shader cache helps, but I'm not sure how this applies to AMDGPU drivers on Linux. My specs:
Distribution: Arch Linux

CPU: A10-6800k
GPU: RX 470, with AMDGPU driver
Any ideas how to fix that? I've considered trying to run Windows version through Wine, but I'd rather do it as a last resort.

There have been a lot of rumblings about the lack of GOG Galaxy support for Linux. On one hand, I kind of have to roll my eyes at this because not having to deal with a launcher is one of the big appeals of GOG to me. But I do get that this comes with the downside of not getting updates automaticallyhaving a built-in update system was the #1 appeal of Steam in the days before everyone had fast enough Internet to buy all their games online.

However, Linux is the one and only OS that has an update system built right in that's not locked down to software bought through its own app store. So far I've only ever seen it used to update free software, but would it be possible for a storefront like GOG to hook into it as well? Some rudimentary searching tells me that it's possible for repos to require authentication, which would be necessary to keep just anyone from adding the URLs and getting all the games for free. Presumably, the task of generating and pairing the necessary access keys, as well as hooking into their repo and adding the relevant packages, could be accomplished by adding some shell scripts to the installer.

Is it really as simple as I'm making it out to be, or is there something I'm missing? I only vaguely understand how most of this stuff works.

*and possibly rpm; I haven't touched a RedHat-based distro since before I had Internet access so I wouldn't know what the differences are

Hi,

I've been running into an issue when alt-tabbing fullscreen games running through wine. It seems like every time I alt-tab out of the game and then return to it, my game shrinks into a tiny screen and appears in the top left corner of my monitor. The rest of the screen is black. No matter how many times I try alt tabbing back or clicking around I cannot fix the issue. I always have to close the game and reopen it.

Does anyone else experience this? I'm using KDE, the latest proton betas and the proprietary nvidia driver.

Thanks.

Leo_Verto

Disclaimer: The game doesn't run well at all, all the issues listed here are still present, the most annoying one being the constant stuttering of video and audio.

This seems to be caused by the game's poor use of multithreading and it maxing out a single core at nearly all times.

If all this doesn't deter you from trying anyways, here's how I managed to run Space Engineers from Steam using Proton:

proton-wine

First of all you'll Wine 4.2 which is newer than the version shipped with Proton. Fortunately there's already an existing project called wine-proton for upgrading the built-in Wine and someone in one of the Github issues has figured out how to add this to the Proton version selection menu in Steam.

  1. Create ~/.steam/steam/compatibilitytools.d/proton-wine and enter it.
  2. Create compatibilitytool.vdf in that folder containing the following:

    "compatibilitytools"
    {
      "compat_tools"
      {
        "proton-localbuild" // Internal name of this tool
        {
          // Can register this tool with Steam in two ways:
          //
          // - The tool can be placed as a subdirectory in compatibilitytools.d, in which case this
          //   should be '.'
          //
          // - This manifest can be placed directly in compatibilitytools.d, in which case this should
          //   be the relative or absolute path to the tool's dist directory.
          "install_path" "."
    
          // For this template, we're going to substitute the display_name key in here, e.g.:
          "display_name" "Wine Proton"
    
          "from_oslist"  "windows"
          "to_oslist"    "linux"
        }
      }
    }
    
  3. Copy Proton files from $STEAM_LIBRARY/steamapps/common/Proton 3.16 Beta/ into this directory. Replace $STEAM_LIBRARY with your default library's path.

  4. Download wine-proton from here and unpack it over the existing Proton files in the current directory. i.e. dist/ should be merged into dist/.

.NET

Next we'll have to install .NET 4.7.2 using either winetricks or protontricks:

For the latter run protontricks 244850 dotnet472 and click through all the installers.

FAudio

The last thing we need is FAudio to fix ingame audio. Install it from Kron4ek/FAudio-Builds.

Now you can start Space Engineers from Steam. The intro video doesn't play for some reason so you'll have to press a LMB or ESC to skip the video and enter the menuonce the game has loaded.

You may occasionally get a rundll32.exe warning but just answering it with "No" has worked fine for me.

Again, thanks to /u/LinuxDweller for doing most of the work needed to get to this point, your guides have been invaluable! I hope by writing this one someone more knowledgeable than me may be able to more easily debug the game and to work towards finally making it playable.

hello,

I just installed Battle.net/Overwatch via Lutris's Script via the Link from their website.

The installer runs and finished with a error (which is normal?).

When I then want to start Battle.net, I get a windows, that only says 'No file provided'.

I then tried to install Origin/Battlefield V and I get the same Error, when I want to start the game.

I looked in the options of battle.net and it points to

~/Games/overwatch/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Battle.net/Battle.net.exe

But the folder battle.net under Program Files (x86) does not exist.

Same for Origin: It creates the prefix, but under Program files there is no folder called "Origin".

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm trying to install nvidia-driver-418 from the Ubuntu repo, but I've also installed HWE

sudo apt install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04

Main Issue is that when I try to install this driver, I get the following:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 nvidia-driver-418 : Depends: xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-418 (= 418.43-0ubuntu0~18.04.1) but it is not going to be installed
                     Depends: libnvidia-cfg1-418 (= 418.43-0ubuntu0~18.04.1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

If then I specify:

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-418 xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-418 libnvidia-cfg1-418

I can then see that all the *hwe* packages would be removed.

Is it happening for you also? What would suggest doing?

Should I install it by removing the hwe, then reinstall hwe again?

Thanks!

Now, if I try to do the same downloading the 2017 version with 2 chapters, that is, taking out only the boa_c2.pk3 and running: ./gzdoom boa_c2.pk3 I get a window with the "2 errors while parsing DECORATE scripts" message.

Seeing that I couldn't run that, I tried downloading the latest WolfenDoom repo and building it myself. If I try with my installed gzdoom, that is: gzdoom wolf_boa-8a95f7985-20190307.pk3 , I get "4 errors while parsing DECORATE scripts" but if I try with the compiled gzdoom ./gzdoom wolf_boa-8a95f7985-20190307.pk3 I can get it to work, but it breaks on the weapons tutorial.

Can someone help me with this? I'm very new to gzdoom. Thank you!

Hay all.

I am looking for an emulator for my Ubuntu MATE distro. Is there a way to install Recalbox or RetroPi on my desktop setup? Both are good emulators but i haven't found a way to install it on my desktop. Thanks in advance!

I have a GeForce 1060 so it should be compatible. I tried running VulkanInfo as suggested online and I received

/build/vulkan-tools-nPkOV5/vulkan-tools-1.1.97+dfsg1/vulkaninfo/vulkaninfo.c:3845: failed with VK_ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED

What is happening and what can I do to fix it? I'm new to Linux so please go easy on the vocab and any procedures. Thanks!

Is UED2.5 (or 3?) UT2004 editor issue fixed? The issues, which I believe, were: 1. Unable to click on brushes or it's surface or to change surface texture; 2. Unable to right click to call menu in all editor's windows; 3. Unable to add actors into the world;

The last time I saw WINEhq mentioned a fix (or known of a bug and still pending for solutions) was in Wine 2.14.

I have The Sims 3 from Stream and it runs great in Ubuntu 18.04.2. My kids and I love it, but the clothes and hair are so dated and kinda boring. I have been trying to install some mods but the structure of the directories is different than windows. I'm wondering if anyone in here successfully modded TS3 in Linux?

On Debain with any OpenGL game (TF2, Half-Life 2, GZDoom, Minecraft) I'm having an issue where it freezes after every 15 minutes to an hour of playing and I have to sysreq out to restart X. I'm on the latest amdgpu driver in the Debian Testing repo. This doesn't happen in any non-OpenGL games, GZDoom with the original Doom software renderer runs fine. Anyone know what the issue could be?

I recently switched cards from an old NVIDIA to an AMD RX 580. I am on Ubuntu 18.10 and it supposedly has Mesa drivers installed and ready to use. The thing is, all the games run really slow, or consume a lot of RAM so I run out of it before loading, or just use the CPU like a Thread-ripper running with an FX clock at full speed. The OS is obviously not using the card at even a decent potential.

At first, I had a generic driver and then proceeded to install a drivers package from the padoka PPA which let me at least have the desktop at a higher resolution than 720p and then tried some games. Afterwards, I tried installing the amd-pro drivers, but the packages breaks mid installation and returns an error code.

I don't know what driver am I even using anymore, because in "additional drivers" it doesn't list any driver. Checking the Mesa drivers from terminal with

dpkg -l | grep mesa

it returns all the preinstalled libraries that comes with newer Ubuntu releases. I searched how to enable the Mesa drivers, but all the posts I saw everyone reluctantly answer that they already come installed and I shouldn't do anything more about it.

I have the Road Redemption game(latest version ) on Linux.

I had earlier experienced this game on windows and it was horrible experience.

After lowering my graphics to suit my laptop,I really enjoy playing and it is smooth experience.

But,when i run campaign mode(storymode),it starts lagging.Then even the Classic mode(quick races) lags. I need to restart that.

I later found the configs(savegame) located as xml via which i completed the game :) . Then,i found that only first mission of campaign (storymode) caused the lags.

Why?

My idea is simple and pitched towards Valve.

As a way of promoting Mac and Linux/SteamOS (primarily Linux) as platforms for gaming, and also to fight off Epic's aggressive moves against Steam, would Valve consider offering a reduced take of sales to game developers for all games that support all three OSes supported by Steam?

For example:

70% sales cut for non-multiplatform games, and 80% sales cut for multiplatform games.

Cons:

- A reduction in revenue from multiplatform games

Pros:

- Fights off Epic's aggressive moves against Steam by offering developers a chance for a better cut of sales on Steam while getting something back in return for it for Steam's community.

- Encourages adoption of Mac and Linux for gaming, something Valve is openly committed to. For developers who do not consider Mac and Linux sales significant enough to warrant ports, the increased revenue from a better take of each sale could be enough to justify a native port. More native ports of Mac and Linux games would increase the userbase of both Mac and Linux, discouraging adoption of Epic, Origin, Windows Store, UPlay and other Windows-only game stores.

Obviously this idea is pitched at Valve, and I hope someone from Valve might notice this and at least give it a minute of thought, but I do wonder what others here will think of the idea as well, and if anyone thinks such an idea could work.

Hi all,

I've got this Debian box which I used to run World of Warcraft under Wine with no problem around early Legion (7.x). Things had changed so I haven't been using it for WoW for a while. And just about a week ago I've decided to run WoW on it again. Battle.net runs updates fine, but when I run WoW, all I got is this small error dialog box: "Game Initialization Failed: I".

I've tried a lot things I could think of, like different wine versions from Debian to WineHQ repo and to those in Lutris, 3.x and 4.x), the scan and repair in Battle.net, reinstall from scratch (fresh wineprefix and fresh Bnet/WoW install), Wine Windows version 7,8,10. I've tried running some tests and they run fine (DirectX11 test, Vulkan works, DXVK works, etc).

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I have an XBox 1 controller wired into my computer. However, when I launch games with Proton, the games never get input from the controller.

I have installed xpad, xboxdrv, and xpadneo, but I still cannot get anything from the controller in-game. I have tried to modprobe of them. However, one thing to note is that doing sudo modprobe xboxdrv gives me the error:

modprobe: FATAL: Module xboxdrv not found in directory /lib/modules/4.18.0-16-generic

The controller is recognized when I do jstest-gtk, and I can navigate around Steam big picture mode using the controller. However, when I launch a game with Proton, the game can't get anything from the controller. I have tried with Monster Hunter World and 20xx.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04 and Proton 3.7. Let me know what other information would be helpful here.

I have been trying to play Stalker Anomaly on Lutris v 0.5.0 to no avail.

I'm on Solus Linux.

I already have one "Anomaly" folder that is updated to Anomaly v1.5.0, beta 2.4, so there's that.

Under Lutris, I created a wine prefix under /home/games

I then shifted the entire Anomaly folder to /home/games/drive_c

So now my Anomaly folder resides amongst other default folders created under wine such as ProgramData, Program Files and Program Files (x86).

I did not install anything extra using Winetricks.

All correct?

I've been playing Unreal Tournament 4 using Steam's Steam Play for a while now. I decided to try the game in Lutris but it looks like it doesn't run. This is what I get:

LogWindows:Error: === Critical error: ===
LogWindows:Error:

I also tried wine 3.21 and 4.3. If I select "Proton 3.16 Beta" in Lutris, the game works. Any ideas?

EDIT: The game runs with wine 4.2 tkg. Very odd.

Hi! I decided to install Worms Armageddon on my Linux laptop (running Lunix Lite) using Steam Play. It works fine, but the screen and where my mouse points is offset up a little bit in the Wine Desktop. The bottom of the desktop window is a black bar, and the top is cut off. My mouse does not point where it actually points. In order to select something, I have to position my mouse slightly under what I want to select (about the width of the black bar at the bottom). It seems that my mouse is effectively offset by the same amount as the Wine desktop is.

Any help would be appreciated!

Recently I've been having some issues with League of Legends. A few weeks ago I was playing using Lutris and the game stopped working. When on the log on screen it would give an error message that it was offline. Then like a week later the issue went away without me making any changes.

Things seemed good of a while, but then a few days ago the same problem came back out of the blue. This time I decided to tinker a bit and discovered a few things. I went into the Configure option on the game and discovered that if i switch the WINE version thingy to 4.3 or 4.0 that it no longer shows the Offline error message, I'm able to log in and get as far as the lobby, but when I try to start a game the game won't load and kicks me back to the lobby instantly. At least logging in allows me to communicate with my in game friends and let them know I'm not dead. Switching back to the previous default 3.19 or 3.21 or whatever takes it back to the previous error message about it being offline.

Anyhow, to give a little bit more background I'm new to Linux gaming as I decided to ditch Windows only a few weeks ago. I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and loving it! I'm by no means a Linux power user, but I'm also not such a noob that not afraid of tinkering. Any advice on what things I should try are greatly appreciated.

Right out of the gate I am less than impressed at Steam's data gathering ability:

Computer Information:
    Manufacturer:  Unknown
    Model:  Unknown
    Form Factor: Laptop
    No Touch Input Detected

They got the laptop part right. I don't know off the top of my head how to identify that there's a touchpad AND a touchscreen, but they work so Steam can probably find out. The manufacturer and model are definitely available in relatively standard places:

$ cat /sys/class/dmi/id/bios_vendor
Dell Inc.
$ cat /sys/class/dmi/id/board_vendor
Dell Inc.
$ cat /sys/class/dmi/id/chassis_vendor

    Primary VRAM Not Detected

I am sad that the survey decided to run on one of the rare times I launch Steam with my intel card active instead of my nVidia card. I am sad that they can't let you relaunch the client and run the survey on a different configuration, but I guess people would abuse a feature like that. Most of the info is right, except that my primary display is 3840x2160 and apparently it's misreading my scaling configuration? Also I have no idea why it can't detect my VRAM:

I'd love to know why it missed the info that it missed, and if there's anything I could do on my end to make the survey more accurate next time.

What is the best, if you have the money, graphics card for Gaming on Linux?

Forewarning: I am biased towards AMD cards because of Open Source drivers. However, i'm willing to listen to arguments for nVidia.

KerfuffleV2

But it requires a bit of work.


Disclaimer: It seems to be working for me but I can make no guarantees. If following these instructions breaks your system then I am not responsible. You should consider this to just be a guide of the general approach to get it working - if you don't understand the steps then it's probably better to just wait for a package that supports kernel 5.0.


I have it running on Ubuntu with the driver installed from graphics-drivers PPA. If you have in installed on a different distro then stuff like the paths things exist at may vary.

You will need the patch from this comment (which I didn't make): http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=2476#comment-52542

However that patch needs to be applied with -p2 but as far as I know there isn't a way to make dkms automatically do that. So here is a pre-stripped version: https://gist.github.com/KerfuffleV2/21460c0cea10c4a00ce3145020190412

On Ubuntu you should have a /usr/src/nvidia-415.27 directory. Put the patch in the patches subdirectory and call it buildfix_kernel_5.0.patch

Then edit /usr/src/nvidia-415.27/dkms.conf and add these lines:

PATCH[1]="buildfix_kernel_5.0.patch"
PATCH_MATCH[1]="^5."

That should make dkms automatically apply the patch, but only when building the module for 5.x kernels.

At that point you should be able to install the debs for the 5.0 kernel from https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.0/

If you already installed that kernel and the dkms part failed then you can force dkms to recompile and install it with this command:

dkms install -k 5.0.0-050000-generic/x86_64 nvidia/415.27

It seems like the patch was actually made for 415.25 so it seems likely that the same steps would work for getting that version going on kernel 5.0 also.

I remember a while ago it was announced that 3.16 came out of beta. However it doesn't show this on my copy of steam. It still says 3.16 beta. Is it just a matter of time before it auto updates or do I need to do something?

I am on Ubuntu 18.04 and installed steam through the official repos.

03/05/2019 22:41:55 CEST

enjoimadcow

I have it installed and running on Ubuntu 18.04 by installing it through lutris with wine 4.0 staging and adding winetricks msxml3, vcrun2010, flash. I also have msvcr100.dll and d3dx11_42 set to native, along with dxvk enabled. It runs and it runs alright.

But I feel like I am having pretty poor performance. I have a 2600 and a 1060 and get 15-20 fps in town and around 35-40 fps in the world. Playable but annoying none the less. Turning things off and disabling vsync provides minimal improvements (5ish fps gain)

Is this as good as I should expect or is there something I'm missing?

hello,

I have Dual-boot with Linux Mint and Windwos 10 on my PC.
Whenever I switch to the other OS and start Steam, it has to Update almost all of my Steam-games.
I am using the same folder as Library for Windows and Linux.

Is there any way, that I can keep the Linux and Windows files in the same Library-folder, so it doesnt have to download a ton of updates, whenever I switch to the other OS?

Thanks.

So I've been playing a lot of Xenonauts lately, which is Mac supported actually, but recently I've been playing around with some of the mods on the Steam Workshop. Problem is many of them require the windows version of the game to function. So I download PlayOnMac and I'm able to install Steam and everything goes smoothly. Since, I've run the game numerous times without issues other than the so-so performance which is to be expected. However, today the game froze during a loading screen and I had to force-quit and from that point on the game has failed to reach the main menu, freezing and giving me this program error:

https://pastebin.com/ULCNswA5

I've been doing some searching online and on this subreddit and found another case that seemed to be the same issue here: https://www.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/comments/96ks7s/oblivion_unhandled_exception_page_fault_on_read/ however I tried adding a library to disable 'winegstreamer' with no luck. I'm not super versed in this kind of thing but I'm very good at following instructions so if anyone had any ideas it'd be a big help.

Kubuntu 18.10

Vmware workstation 15

Vm is running Windows 7

CPU: i5-4460

GPU: R9 390

So I fired up a Windows 7 vm just to tinker with and see if maybe one day I could actually ditch my Windows install completely. I loaded up unigen heaven out of curiosity expecting maybe 10-15 fps at max. But it ran great. Like 75+ fps in all situations and my gpu was heating up and being used like it should be. in dx11 mode too. Is this really how easy it is now? Why aren't we shouting this from the rooftops? Need to do more testing but I think that should be more than enough performance for the last few games I couldn't get running on linux

But that is from Wine itself, since other programs that work well show this very same messages too, although I don't see this last line 0009:fixme:heap:RtlSetHeapInformation (nil) 1 (nil) 0 stub in programs that works well.

.

I have to say that althoughI cannot play the game, the Civ3 Editor (Civ3Edit.exe) works pretty fine

$ wine32 wine Civ3Edit.exe
0012:fixme:heap:RtlSetHeapInformation (nil) 1 (nil) 0 stub
0012:fixme:process:SetProcessDEPPolicy (1): stub

I noticed these mouse symptoms first when playing Dead Frontier 2 in Steam with Proton.

Everything works fine for a while, then all of a sudden the mouse no longer works in the menu. Just stops all together. I found if you alt-tab out and alt+tab back into the game, the mouse now works in the menu... but, now the mouse goes CRAZY in game. The slightest movement of the mouse makes my character spin around super fast and its completely unplayable.

I tested a GOG game this morning Phoning Home (Unity engine) and the exact symptoms occurred... so now I know its not the specific game causing the problem. I'm not sure if Dead Frontier 2 is made in Unity engine... probably is.

But has anyone else seen this problem?

I am working on a tutorial for some of the games I play via Wine. Not about how to get them working but about how to play them. I am trying to take screenshots during gameplay but screenshots are not working unless I pre-program the screenshot application to take a screenshot in the future but this is not always accurate for many of the games that I am trying to capture key moments.

Ubuntu Mate 18.04 64 LTS

Games: Street Fighter Alpha 2, Virtua Fighter PC and Virtua Fighter 2 PC

All of these games work but screenshots are busted.

I have used Linux as the primary gaming platform for the last few years. And I am beginning to wonder why people believe that you cannot play games on Linux.

Why do people still think it is not possible? It was hard 10 years ago but today it is easy.

I'm playing Warframe through Steam Play, Proton.

Yesterday I've spent the entire day on getting Warframe to start. Now, I finally managed to start it. The new problem however is that it will crash after about 5 minutes of playing.

I'm using Ubuntu 18.04, GPU Radeon R7 260X / 360, Proton 3.16-7 Beta.

I am in desperate need of a new GPU, and I have a really limited budget, came across a RX 570 on Ebay for $20. Comes from China, has positive feedback, and the sellers page hasn't been deleted(which would mean its a bad account)

Curious if I should take the chance on this or skip it?

Im concerned that the most powerful Navi GPU wont be more powerful than the Radeon VII. Additionally, the Radeon VII seems to be a pretty limited release.

Do you guys think I should jump on a Radeon VII as soon as I can, or just wait for Navi?

I have an old-ish laptop that I have installed Lubuntu on a few days ago to make it functional again. I wanted to get some games on it so I installed Steam and decided to try their new Proton compatibility layer to see if I could get Windows games to work. I tried several games (Steam and non-Steam) but it would always just say "Preparing to launch..." then just close without doing anything, which is odd seen as native Linux games start just fine. At this point I decided to look into it and sure enough I don't have a Proton folder in my Steam library. I tried pretty much everything I could think of: Trying different Proton versions, different games, changing install locations, re-installing steam, etc... But nothing worked, Proton just refuses to download.

Is there any way to "force" Steam to install Proton?

For context, regular Wine runs perfectly on this PC and I also checked to make sure I have all of the required dependencies (such as Python)

We are supporting Linux with our new game Faerie Solitaire Harvest ( https://store.steampowered.com/app/348910/Faerie_Solitaire_Harvest/ wishlist! it's releasing on Easter)

I have a few friends with Linux who have been able to test but I need more Linux testers before release to verify all is good. Mainly I am interested if it runs properly, exits properly, behaves as you expect a well behaved Linux program to run.

Please comment if you are interested in helping with your Linux version and I'll send some beta Steam keys. We'll support DRM free version with full release but for this beta Steam is a requirement because of convenience.

how does it run with proton/wine+dxvk? 30fps+ on ultra with hairworks off/mix of ultra/high?

and the most important thing, is there any stuttering? how about with framerate locked to 30fps in game - or, preferably, to 32fps in game's config (LimitFPS=32 in user.settings)? if there's no stuttering, what's your setup - xorg/wayland, compositor, tearfree on/off? do you happen to have youtube video of it running?

i'll be upgrading my PC a little bit and i'm torn between RX 560 and GTX 1050 - nvidia has its own problems (issues with kwin and so on), but it has a little bit higher performance. amd on the other hand has open drivers, which are constantly evolving, so as long as performance isn't a lot worse than under windows (i know there's a penalty, the question is - how big, every youtuber benchmarking witcher 3 under linux seems to have RX 480/580 in case of amd) and there's no stuttering, i'll be happy to get RX 560.

thanks in advance for all your replies.

Hello together,

I guess that there are many rooms with the topic "linux gaming" out there at Discord.

There are many rooms which hosts a few of us linux gamers.

Does it makes sense to collect these Discord rooms for new Reddit members ?

I found this one: https://discordapp.com/invite/linuxgaming and I don't know if it is related to this reddit page "linux_gaming".

The Discord "linuxgaming" room has 2.501 members at the moment. I know that Lutris has also it's own room inside of Discord. And also some Linux YouTube members/players have their own rooms.

Perhaps we can collect some of them ?

Hi,

Just a FYI for people looking at upgrading to kernel 5.0 with nvidia drivers.

As of 3/4/2018 I've not been able to get the 415.x driver set to load on drm recompile, and the 418.x set has a gcc-8.2 dependency(which I upgraded to), but it still failed to recompile on kernel 5.0. The nvidia_drm fails to load on 5.0.

Not sure if it's a kernel switch issue, or packaging issue, or what. But on the Ubuntu based kernel it's not working well in testing. Fair warning. Stay on 4.20.x or lower if you are using Nvidia.

Building a Mini-ITX gaming/video editing rig with a Ryzen 7 2700x auto-overclocked with XFR 2 and Precision Boost enabled so I need optimal cooling for the processor. Corsair seems to be one of the only options with some Linux software on Git as each company makes their own proprietary software to control the fans and RGB lighting. But that open source software for Corsair coolers appears to only work with certain coolers.

Do you know of any liquid coolers that have excellent Linux support so I can tweak the fan speeds and the RGB lighting?

Hi there Lutris users and curious minds !

Some may have noticed I didn't post the 4.2 builds changelog here, even though I did share the changes on Discord.

The reason is pretty simple. I am maintaining the source side and Strider (Lutris's daddy) builds when he can. That creates some variable offset between when the source is ready to build and when you guys can actually find the builds available in Lutris. I have been trying to always post here when I know for sure Strider is building or when some builds are already uploaded, but that's far from ideal considering we're not in the same timezone.

"Where is the frickin' 4.3 changelog then?", you may ask.

So I have decided to simply host a changelog here : https://github.com/Tk-Glitch/PKGBUILDS/blob/master/wine-tkg-git/wine-tkg-profiles/wine-tkg-lutris.changelog

I have also added the link to that page for future reference : https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/Wine-Builds

Hopefully you'll find that solution to be better as well. See you around!

Hi all,

I've been opted in to Steam Beta for a while now and haven't had much trouble with some Windows-only games working with SteamPlay (ie. Fallout 1, Westerado and Kathy Rain). I haven't been on my Linux laptop in a while (using GalliumOS 2.0 on a Chromebook), but suddenly my Windows-only games are stating they're "NOT ON SteamOS" (in big screen, or not offering any Play options outside of big screen). I still have the opt-in for Steam Beta checked off, so I'm not sure where the problem would be to start.

Going through Steam Beta changelogs and searches don't give any hint it's a problem outside of my computer. I verified my local files for these games and there's still no option to play on Linux. Has anyone seen this or know of a fix?

Thanks in advance!

I recently bought Anchorhead from itch.io and downloaded the linux version so I could play it on my laptop (running BunsenLabs). However, the archive seems to only have an exe file to run it. There aren't any readmes included either.

I've encountered a few small games meant to be made compatible with linux that only have exe files in the past and never found out how to intall then properly. Is there an official way to do it?

After months of having trouble launching some games and needing manual tweaks all over the board(i used to think it was because of my AMD card), i found out the reason: my games storage folder is called "armazm", which some games translates as "armaz?m", which means their entire configuration is messed up and nothing just works.

I wish this was a popup on the wine installation process, it's really hard to debug and i only found out about it by chance. Should have known better than using special characters though, but if anyone is having weird, impossible to debug launching or crashing problems that output nothing, maybe check your folder structure.

I've tried a lot of settings in the Nvidia panel and the game but I never get the fps from the reviews in the Phoronix website and some youtube videos with similar setups. In almost every setup I get similar results, with improvements of maybe 10-20fps at most. Every benchmark usually starts at around 30fps and increases up to around 60fps in the front view when the car is not visible. When the cockpit appears the fps go down again to around 40fps.

I've tried with all game graphics presets and the results are not so different from one to one another, just a few fps difference, except on "very low". In the very low preset I can get between 110-180fps. In the low level it goes down to 35-70fps.

Tested at 1920x1080.

Hardware:

AMD FX-8350

Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB

8GB RAM

Software:

Debian Stretch/Buster

Nvidia 390.87 or 415.27

Settings:

No Vsync, Flip on, Performance CPU governor, Powermizer set to max performance, no antialiasing or multisampling, resolutions 1920x1080/2560x1080/2560x1440

I have a 4GB GTX 980 and it seems like wine or DXVK aren't passing gpu VRAM information correctly. This warning only applies to me changing texture settings, i cannot get them past 'low' on either game, and they have entirely different engines. I had similar problems launching StarCraft 2 recently too with an error that said either 'starcraft 2 requires shader model 3.0' or 'graphics device is not available at this time'. Does anyone have any clue what's wrong?

edit: wine 4.2tkg, Antergos, lutris, DXVK 1.0, esync on. I'm trying to DXUP starcraft 2 to DX11 as well, but quake is natively DX11

I'm attempting to install the complete edition of Civilization IV, the GOG version.

I installed Wine by following the instructions on it's installation page. Civilization IV installs fine when I double click it's installation .exe . I've encountered a bug where it quite often crashes when I try to load the game. I see that others have had the same problem and found a solution to it by using a winetrick:

https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=10158

I saw that Lutris seems to make it easy to play with Wine Tricks, so I've tried to install the game from there. Only problem is, when I do so I receive this error:

The executable at path /home/honeybeeoverlord/Games/sid-meiers-civilization-iv-the-complete-edition/drive_c/GOG Games/Civilization IV Complete/Civ4/Civilization4.exe can't be found, please check the destination folder. Check the destination folder, some parts of the installation process may have not completed successfully.

I tried to get it to work through Proton, I enabled Steam Play for games I don't own on Steam, but all it seems to do is try to launch Lutris. Bit confused about how to use Proton.

I'm unsure how to proceed. Any help is appreciated

No output errors, the game doesn't even crash, it just hangs in there in a black screen, no sound, no input. I can easily escape and close the game, it didn't even have the decency to freeze me! I'm using arch, on mesa 18.3.4 and opengl 4.5, a lot of people over on https://www.protondb.com/app/335300 seem to be having no problems with the game, and since i'm getting no output, i thought it was weird and would welcome any kind of help. Also tried the lutris installed, same exact thing happens, this doesn't happen with other games.

To avoid any spoilers, the cutscene after defeating the monster that ranks you up to HR 29 seems like a known-crash to desktop for some users with Nvidia cards on both Windows, and for me, Linux. Does anyone know of a way of getting past this? I saw somewhere that logging into Steam on another machine that is not affected, running your character through the cutscene and then saving it works, but I'd like to avoid that if possible.

Thanks!

When I run Monster Hunter World, I get the following screen on the main menu: https://imgur.com/8t4FImK

I am able to see the intended background for a brief moment (less than 1 second), and then it switches to a very bright and sparkling white effect that takes over the whole background.

If I start the game, then I am able to see the cinematic just fine. However, once the game starts again all I can see is white.

I am on Ubuntu 18.04. My GPU is Nvidia GTX 960, and my driver is nvidia-driver-390. My monitor is 1920x1080.

What can I test to get more information here? Does anyone know what this issue is? I'm not even sure how to describe it.

https://github.com/FNA-XNA/FAudio/releases/tag/19.03

New Features:

FAudio now has proper versioning in its soname

Lowered CMake minimum requirement to 2.8.12

FACT: Full support for loop points in streaming WaveBanks

Fixes:

Various warning fixes in the headers for compilers new and old

Add some more validation checks for the various FilterParameters calls

Optimized source/submix processing to not copy data when resampling is skipped

SetOutputVoices now properly uses FAUDIO_SEND_USEFILTER for each output voice

Hacky fix for invalid source formats where SubFormat is IEEE_FLOAT but wBitsPerSample is 16 (aka: prototype)

Submixes now use the same resampler as sources, potentially lowering quality but fixing an issue where submixes that resampled their input would increasingly lag behind the rest of the audio graph

FACT:

Fix infinite-looping Sounds with track variation but no effect variation

Fix end-of-stream behavior for streaming WaveBanks

Hi, we're (defun games ()) a small indie studio working on Spycursion, our ambitious hacking and epsionage MMO. If any of this sounds familiar, it's because we posted to this Subreddit a few months back. We got some pretty good feedback so we wanted to post here again now that the Kickstarter is live.

Spycursion is an ambitious MMO that uses realistic hacking. The game will be accessible to people with zero hacking/coding skills, who we hope will be able to pick up some real-life skills, but we also want to make it rewarding to those who already have some degree of expertise. We want it to be a good tool for people to develop their skills. We also hope it will encourage people to develop more of an interest in the field.

Obviously, we're supporting Linux or we wouldn't be posting here :P

We would love your feedback on the hacking and MMO elements of the game.

To stay up to date on the latest updates and developments follow our Twitter: @DefunGames

Thanks for reading, and we hope you'll check out our exciting project!

I'm on mint, and I can't help noticing how far behind I am on releases. I'm on 18.04 Ubuntu with a 4.15 kernel and 390 nvidia drivers to start with... Seems to be not quite bleeding edge. I started on mint because durr beginner, but I'm more confident now, though I want to stay in the debverse as I'm accustomed to it.

I'd really like to go with Debian sid, but everyone seems to be trashing it, so should I just do Ubuntu unstable then?

With tax season rolling around, and a half-decent check coming back to me this year, i've begun to start eyeing a VR set. With my recent full conversion to Arch in the past month or so, though, its made me start to wonder what the game support is like on linux. I've heard that natively it almost doesn't exist so i'm not getting my hopes up on that front, but im curious to hear how Proton and the like have affected it. Is VR gaming currently going well on Linux, or would I need to go back to having a small windows dual boot shoved on some random drive somewhere?

(And on a side note, should I go with a Rift or a Vive?)

I'm thinking of upgrading my GPU while performance is okay in steamplay/dxvk and native titles it could be better I regularly get around 25-30fps in AAAs from 2015 and around 45-50 in 460 titles running through wine. However anything new would most likely cripple my GPU. I've also started recording gameplay would a more powerful gpu make a difference? I'm looking at playing at 1080p 60fps in games at the lowest cost possible as I'm still studying preferably NVIDIA however I'm sure AMD with open source drivers would be fine as well. The rest of my hardware is fine with a i5 6500 and 16gb of ram

First time using Wine. I followed the instructions and installed Wine and Lutris. I used Lutris to select CivIV installer, for some unknown reason it couldn't install it.

I ended up double clicking the .exe installation file, and it installed the game without any problems.

So far I've encountered two problems.

1) when I load a game, not always but over half the time the game ends up freezing and stops responding. I see that Wine gives me an error, but I can't see it because the game has forced the focus. Is there a command like alt-tab, or even ctrl-alt-del I can use to escape from the game? I've been restarting the manually restarting the computer when this happens because I don't know how else to continue using my computer.

2) some parts of the game where there should be a graphics , like diplomacy, technology and espionage screen, there's dark pink colour there instead which is irritating to the eyes.

If I work out how to install through lutris, might these problems fix themselves? Feeling pretty clueless about all this so any feedback is appreciated.

psy-q

When installing oibaf's amdgpu driver, I see that it pulls in libllvm at 7.0.1. His documentation says the drivers are built with the "latest LLVM", so I wonder if that means 7.0.1 or 8.x from git?

I notice massive hangs when playing e.g. The Witcher 3 on an RX 580. 4 - 5 seconds of freeze every time a new shader comes up. So I was wondering if that's normal or if it might be caused by LLVM 7.0.1 and might go away once the driver is built with something newer.

I found the RADV GPU hang issue mentioned on the DXVK wiki.

Hey guys what's up?

I was distro-hopping these days, and saving my .steam and .local Steam related files untouched to don't have problems with my Bioshock Infinite save, that's actually quite advanced. It worked well on many distributions, since i installed the Steam-installer or something on Ubuntu everything just went wrong:

1- Steam was not recognizing my previous saves, data and configuration.

2- I had to put .local as the default Steam library through settings, it "worked", i mean, the saves and games were recognized, but the saves are just giving a "files corruption" on my saves os something. It's awful to see everything there but just not working.
3 - Camed back to Solus (where I am right now), to see if things worked on a different Steam installation and to stop distro-hopping. Problem persist.

Do you guys have any suggestion? Maybe i should destroy .steam files, and conserve the .local and try to install Steam again in Solus? I don't know how these things work on Steam.

I think the Bioshock Infinite save files are stored at:

/home/myuser/.local/share/Steam/userdata/122113920/8870/remote/SaveData/

and similar content seems to exist at:

/home/myuser/.steam/userdata/122113920/8870/remote

Ty for the attention!

RulerOfOlympus

So,here's the thing,i'm running Win10 LTSC right now,but only because of games.

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

My specs are as follows:

Operating System: Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 64-bit

System Model: HP EliteBook 8540w

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.60GHz (8 CPUs), ~1.6GHz

Memory: 14336MB RAM

Available OS Memory: 14262MB RAM

Card name: NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M

Dedicated Memory: 970 MB

Current Mode: 1366 x 768 (32 bit) (60Hz)

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

So,in terms of gaming,it's mostly League of Legends,or some other game i feel like going back to.

I'm a huge emulation fan(PSP comes to mind),but,considering my specs,i'd like suggestions on any good distro for gaming,and what games can i run natively or in wine with this machine.

From what i gather,my Quadro FX is a workhorse GPU,with very good OpenGL support,amongst other things.

Any reccomendations? Suggestions? Driver issues?

Thanks in advance!

LinuxDweller

So eight months ago I've started messing with Vulkan in order to run this game: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/8ekh1t/trying_to_get_space_engineers_to_work_with_vulkan/?sort=new I was inactive in the wine community due to my college and internship but recently I've regained interest in getting this game to work. It was hard but today, after month of trying I've finally got the 1.188 version of Space Engineers to work with no single crash. There are still issues though, listed below:

  • stuttering music which happens even if the framerate is good
  • thumbnails in "New Game" menu are rendered as purple rectangles, while in "Load Game' menu are not rendered at all. This might be due to a missing or broken lib in my OS (Ubuntu 19.04) but I haven't tested it in case it may fix one thing and break x amount of others
  • some mods break the download process. You either get an "mod download failed please check mod config" error in-game or the mod download will simply hang indefinitley. I haven't found anything that could lead me to the reason why some mods break the download process and some work fine. Note that this only affects downloading the mod not the functionality. If it downloads it's going to work just like on Windows.

Below is the list of mods that I've tested and break the download process:

  • Starwars Hangar Fields
  • Modular Encounter Spawner
  • Dual Head 1x1 Advanced Rotor
  • Bigger Large Drill Range
  • HUD Compass
  • Edge Be Gone
  • Deuterium Fusion Reactors
  • VCZ Multifloor Elevator
  • Text HUD API (and any mod that depends on it)
  • Easier Grid Takeover
  • NPC Android Crew
  • Cat Eye's skybox
  • DefenseShields
  • GSF energy weapons
  • Smarter Suit
  • Nanite Control Factory (the official version, server-friendly variant works)

You can try my POL5 script here: https://github.com/PhoenicisOrg/scripts/pull/725/files

Or follow these steps:

  1. Get the 418.43 drivers if you're on Nvidia graphics card. I don't have a AMD one but I assume you need the latest drivers. Feel free to test this if you own a card form team red ;)
  2. Get Wine 4.2. Older versions do not display the splash screen correctly and they do not fix the aforementioned issues.
  3. Create a 64 bit wineprefix.
  4. Install dotnet472, vcrun2017, DXVK (the latest version) and faudio (at this moment winetricks have an outdated version so you have to manually install it).
  5. Open winecfg and set all xaudio2_x dlls (from 0 to 9) to "native,builtin". Without this the game will run on 1.187 but not on 1.188.
  6. Install steam via winetricks. The overlay will be disabled by default but you can remove the gameoverlayrenderer entry from the "Libraries" tab in winecfg and from my play-testing it makes no difference.
  7. Install the game.

So that's pretty much it. Feel free to leave a feedback and try to include log files if you encounter any issue not listed.

According to WineHQ - https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=8130 - It should run with a noCD patch.

I have the original disc. I use it around 14.04 but I don't remember doing anything outside of putting wine on the setup file and installing.

Any got any tips for this install?

I still got the physical of the Prepare to Die Edition of Dark Souls and would like to install it to try out linux gaming, but so far I had no luck getting it to run. I managed to install it, but running the exe never worked(getting issues like " 0009:fixme:msvcrt:__clean_type_info_names_internal (0x384538) stub").

I am aware of this guide: http://www.gamersonlinux.com/forum/threads/dark-souls-guide.1693/, but it only covers a Steam installation.

I wondered if the physical edition is simply too old maybe? I even thought about downloading an iso file of the game(since I own it already) that might have received post-release updates(I think there was one that removed GFWL, which might cause problems right?) As you can see, I'm fairly new and clueless about all of this. The online guides I found are all about Steamplay or include Steam's linux version in some ways. Are there any guides for this kind of thing(and maybe GFWL cases in general), or do you know how to best do this?

Any_Scheme

I'm trying to import an apk on mcpelauncher so I can play Minecraft multiplayer with Android and stuff (so please don't suggest the Java version). But with every version I tried (1.11, 1.10, 1.9...) I get that the apk isn't compatible, with the terminal saying when I try without the GUI that libminecraftpe.so is missing (when I try extracting through mcpelauncher-extract it also points this out after extracting). Does anyone have any idea of what may be happening?

Side question: Does anyone know if mcpelauncher supports controllers? And if multiplayer works fine with other platforms?

Thanks a lot

Specs:

Manjaro fully updated with the latest NVIDIA driver

GTX 1060 W/Max-Q Design (6 gb version)

Core i5-7300hq @ 3.5

8gb ram

256gb NVMe (os, EXT4)

420gb SSD (steam library, EXT4)

MGSV:TPP, Project Cars 2, Tomb Raider 2013 w/proton (but not native), and retroarch with vulkan set as video driver - each of these displays the exact same problem in varying degrees and frequency: they hang up and free up, repeatedly. MGSV is almost playable if you have a shipping container full of patience. PC2 is a fucking slide show being ran by someone with a short attention span. Tomb Raider is about on par with MGSV. Retroarch is just a fucking mess.

Now when I originally posted this I just badly explained that some shit was wrong and I wasn't happy about it. A month later I chilled the fuck out and made a proper post with specs and better descriptions but I still didn't get anywhere ( though a lot of people did their best, and I am very grateful to them).

Now, I am going to make one last post and cross post it for coverage and then I'm either going to have a working gaming laptop or I'm going to mail NVIDIA an envelope full of cow shit.

Here's something I didn't have last time: video of the issue

This evening I installed retroarch and fired up my totally homemade with my own hands backup of Tetris Attack for SNES. I played for a bit and had an idea - I changed the video driver from GL to Vulkan and I'll give you 3 guesses what familiar problem immediately started happening!

I am fairly certain that this isn't a resource issue because:

  1. Recording software didn't make the problem worse at all,

  2. The same games ran fine on windows which uses more resources to begin with, and

  3. If emulating an SNES stresses out an i5@3.5GHz w/8GB DDR4 ram all on an NVMe SSD, then I'm amazed the thing can fucking turn on.

I've ran multiple tests throughout this entire ordeal, and I can tell you that MGSV uses barely 2 gb ram and AT MOST 70% cpu.

So in closing, does anybody have any idea what the hell is going on that would make a 30 year old 2D Tetris game stutter exactly like MGSV is doing, and is it related to Vulkan?

Also, fuck nvidia with a white hot 30 ton beam of tungsten carbide.

You can guess where this came from, but if anyone wants a copy of the game then please PM me. First come, first served :-)

I recently discovered that SDL added support for outputting to the GPU directly (akin to Wayland). Since then I've been trying out different programs/games.

Here is my current list

https://gist.github.com/parkerlreed/2449dcdc67a1cd9d41aff7d461f58148

And for a more recent game, Ion Maiden actually works! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENBOVMnXCnc

Testing on Arch Linux with the stock sdl2 package. Should work for both Intel and AMD GPUs running from a tty (switching to an unused one works too)

If anybody has suggestions of programs/games to try in this mode, let me know!

I bought the new Fallout and currently it runs only on windows. I tried to install it to my Ubuntu 18.10 with kernel 4.20 also. I've played succrsfully Fallout 3 and New Vegas with wine (just plug and play) before. Fallout 76 seems to be more difficult. Is it possible at all? I installed the Bethesda launcher with wine to download the game,, but Bethesda doesn't laubch at all.

So I am asking something like step-by-step instructions to make it work so great as older releases. If it matters, I am running a Nvidia gpu currently, but I am able to buy an AMD gpu if required.

I haven't tried to install Lutris or PlayOnLinux yet. I never made any game to run with those on my previous Ubuntu 18.04 install.

Hello fellow linux-gamers

I am here to ask a rather specific question, so let me explain.

First up system-specs: System: Arch @ 5.0rc7 graphics-driver: mesa-git 19.0 Card: vega 56

I recently got into playing Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet (The Game is based on Unreal Engine 4). Very recently I face an issue where in-game there is like a yellow filter over the game.

Just reading today in the latest dxvk-release (1.0) this exact issue seems to be fixed for the proprietary driver. So I guess it would be worth a try with the open-source one.

Now my problem. SAO: Fatal Bullet runs only using proton3.16-4 anything newer and the game will not launch.

So my question is can I build proton3.16-4 against dxvk 1.0 instead of 0.90 which is used by default? Or is there a way to use dxvk 1.0 with proton?

At the moment all is fine, since I use a snapshot which is a bit older. But on updating the system I will face that issue again.

I am about to install a SSD drive and I am thinking of switching for a different distro. Right now I'm on Xubuntu and I feel like I need something different. I was thinking MX Linux 18. Gaming is very important so I want to have as much support as Ubuntu have. Should I stay or go for Debian?

Thanks!

Playing Rise of the Tomb Raider. I follow the instructions on github. There's some wording that confuses me, in the part about:

Requesting GameMode

After installing libgamemodeauto.so.0
simply preload it into the game:

gamemoderun ./game

Or edit the steam launch options:

gamemoderun %command%

  1. What does preload it into the game mean?
  2. How should i interpret the syntax for steam launch options? Do they mean gamemoderun %performance% or gamemoderun performance ?

I just assume that the gamemodes are performance and powersave, I haven't found an actual list in the readme...

Thank you for your help!

I play Thronebreaker on Ubuntu 18.10 with Wine Staging 4.2. GOG version, using Galaxy.

It has a well known issue in that after the initial loading screen, it displays a black screen that can't be passed. This actually comes from videos that can't be played. From what I've understood, it's because it uses some Windows Media framework and comes embedded with a version from Windows 10 that Wine can't manage. There's a way to fix this by manually installing said framework version from Windows 7.

By gathering infos from a bug report for DXVK (related to a different game but that's the same issue), I did the following:

  • install the Windows stuff through Winetricks and the use of python-installcab-master

    winetricks mf && install-mf-64.sh

  • add stuff in the ergistry (that one and that one)

  • register two extra libs needed that don't seem to be done at step 1

    wine regsvr32 msmpeg2vdec.dll && wine64 regsvr32 msmpeg2vdec.dll && wine regsvr32 msmpeg2adec.dll && wine64 regsvr32 msmpeg2adec.dll

  • copy mfplat.dll (version 12.0.7601.23471 from Win 7 64 bit) in the game's directory.

While the game can now properly play the videos and be playable, it still happens randomly that I get a black screen instead, in which case I have to kill the process and start again. I usually need to run it two or three times before it works, which is a bit annoying, though manageable. More annoying: there are also videos at the end of each act that can break, so I have to kill the process, run the game again, redo a bunch of stuff (mainly dialogues) and hope that the video will work.

Anybody knows if there's a fix that works 100% of the time? Maybe I missed something in the installation I did, or there are specific options to set in winecfg, or maybe there are other versions of that Windows Media that are known to work better?

After trying several different ways of this and the Lutris script, I ended up with a conclusion: the update changed how networking is done in their client. This because older versions of WINE - where it should then work on - experience the exact same issue. I ended up browsing to the logs it makes itself, and voila.

From the logs (9 times this):

Of which there's a comparable terminal output of which I think plays a role in this:

Okay I already have linux installed on my college laptop but I always wanted it to be installed on my main gaming laptop as well. Especially after realising windows has a universal backdoor, yeah miss we with that shit Microsoft.

Though gaming is really pulling me back to do so. I've been following things like proton for quite some time. I have some questions I'd like answered:

  • Can I run AAA games like the witcher 3, Assassin's creed, gta, etc. (Especially witcher 3) right after their out.

  • Does it work with non DRM games? What if my game is a pirated copy, would it work?

  • Is there any performance degrade?

I have a problem -- I am trying to get the latest staging build for Wine (4.2) with vkd3d (that has been patched for WoW) working to get good framerates (50-60+) on my system so I can continue to play WoW. However WoW is not detecting my video card (well, integrated graphics). I have Intel HD Graphics 620 (rev 02) integrated graphics in my laptop. But WoW is only seeing Intel HD Graphics 4000, which from what I can tell, is a "fallback" option when WoW cannot detect the video card correctly. My specs are:

  • Linux Mint 19.2 (Tara)
  • Wine 4.2~bionic, set to Windows 10
  • vkd3d 1.1cybmod22-bionic~1ppa1 (from cybermax-dexter/vkd3d, a version of vkd3d specifically patched to work with WoW)
  • vulkan 1.1.97.0~rc1-lunarg18.04.1.1 from the Padoka Stable PPA (mesa implementation)
  • mesa 18.3.3-1~b~padoka0 (from same PPA as vulkan)

I have verified that vkd3d is working, as I can run the two demos for it (gears-vkd3d & triangle-vkd3d) without issues. Which means that I can get DirectX 12 apps running in Wine.

However, when I start WoW, and go to the System -> Advanced section, I only see DirectX 11 as an option, and the only video card seen is as I have said, Intel HD Graphics 4000.

The problem is that HD 4000 is not DirectX 12 capable, only DirectX 11. The HD 620 is DirectX 12 capable. I need to get WoW to correctly identify my card, and I am at a loss.

I am hoping someone else has experienced this and/or solved it. Or that someone could point me down the path of figuring out how to resolve this. I know my system is more than capable of doing what I need to play WoW, I just find it frustrating that it isn't working as desired.

Thanks for any help.

I know that Mesa has to do with graphics drivers, but I'm pretty lost on it all around. Here's my dilemma: I have a free-sync monitor, glxinfo reports it as VRR-capable, and that's it. I can't get it to run freesync. The internet says update to Mesa 19, and I can't seem to do that either, adding PPA's and what not, I stay on 18.2

I'm lost in what Mesa even is exactly, when there's also amdgpu, and amdgpu-pro.

I'm having problems with steam not opening. I have tried downloading using

>apt install steam

and when I click on the icon nothing happens, at all.

I also tried using the Ubuntu Software application and it does the same thing.

I have looked all over online but nothing I have tried has worked at all. I'm not super great with terminal, but I have used it in the past. When I tried typing the command

> steam

as a lot of people during my google searches, this is what would come up

> tar: This does not look like a tar archive

> xz: (stdin): File format not recognized

> tar: Child returned status 1

> tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

> find: /home/kj/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime: No such file or directory

I have no idea what to do at this point, and this sub seemed like the best one to reach out to.

I hope somebody has run in to this before and knows how to help, thanks!

Hello everyone, I have been having some performance issues with Saints Row 4 and have a story to tell about it. Last summer, I finally bit the bullet and made my very own gaming PC with an AMD RX 580 8GB and an Intel i5-8400.

After building my PC, I installed Xubuntu 18.04 and began to play since I heard (perhaps incorrectly) that AMD GPUs were "plug and play" and nothing really had to be done. So after updating all my software and installing Steam, I began to start playing on my new rig. Every game that I played (SR4, Mad Max, Portal, Wii Emulation, and so on) all worked great and I generally could run them on max setting with pretty good frame rates. On SR4 specifically, I got around 80 FPS (with a ton of enemies on screen) to about 130 FPS (with few things happening).

But eventually I went on a distro-hopping session (around the first of the year or so when I had time off from university) to look at distros that weren't Ubuntu based (had been on Ubuntu based distros since the release of Ubuntu 16.04) and eventually decided on Fedora. Went on a gaming break due to college and also my job and hadn't gamed that much only to have decided to go back to Xubuntu as I wasn't that happy with Fedora as a daily driver for reasons unrelated to gaming. But when I went to try playing Saints Row 4 again (on the new install of Xubuntu), I had noticed massive drops in performance. Now I only had around 30-60 FPS on medium settings with consistent drops (normally stays along 50-60 but then goes down to 40 or worse) to the point where the game is unplayable.

Because of this I have tried multiple things such as

  • Re-installing the game
  • Re-installing Xubuntu
  • Updating the AMD drivers
  • Updating the kernel on Ubuntu to 4.20 via ukuu
  • Trying other distros (Solus, Fedora, and various Ubuntu based distros)
  • Using different DEs (xfce, GNOME, Budgie, and MATE)

But none of it works for me even though I installed Xubuntu the same way that I did back in the summer of last year. So does anyone have an idea of what could be wrong with SR4? I have tried playing my other games and can't see any huge differences in terms of performance. Thanks for everything!

so this is what ive tried-

  1. running it in wine
  2. running it in steam
  3. running it in lutris

only one that worked is lutris and it runs at 15 fps everywhere. I can't enable dxvk in lutris because it wont let me and I made sure all the dlls required were in the wineprefix. I've also tried running sc2switcher.exe to directly launch the game but even that didn't change anything. I've read every thread I found searching and still don't know the answer.

Howdy,

I am fiddling around with wine and various old games (DX9 mostly). I realized that I had tremendous performance troubles while on another machine everything went smoothly. I then figured that the only difference was I had compositing enabled on that slow one.

Now I've turned it off: before I could barely move my mouse, and everything was sluggish. Reported fps seem to be similar but everything is more fluid now.

Can it be compositing has such a negative impact? The machine has a dedicated AMD HD 8790M while the other machine just has Intel integrated GFX.

The AMD card performs 2 x better as well in heaven benchmarks, but I barely notice differences in wine games.

The Intel actually performs much better with compositing than the one with the dedicated AMD.

Is it just some buggy driver issue, or is wine because in general not recommended with compositing?

NB: I noticed that wine+MS Office crashes my WM when compositing is enabled .... spooky, ey!

Hello,

I've been attempting to install DXVK to WINE. I use Mac WINE with Vulkan enabled through MoltenVK. (I know, shitty choice of computer, but the choice wasn't mine.) Whenever I run:

export WINEPREFIX=/Users//.wine

winetricks --force setup_dxvk.verb

it seems to start, but then I get this:

./setup_dxvk.verb: No such file or directory

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

_QWERTY_YTREWQ_

So, last Saturday I got my new PC. My old PC was from 2012, and other then the NVIDIA GTX 1080, it was time for a upgrade.

Went with a full AMD CPU this time and bought a RX 580 as well just to test it out how AMD would do on Linux, since I heard great things about it.

I was expecting to put in my GTX 1080 in a few weeks but I might just run with this until AMD releases their new 7nm Navi's.

In my previous system, I was playing vanilla World of Warcraft from time to time. I have 2 monitors, and my left monitor is vertical.

The issue I had was that WoW would always open on the vertical monitor, even-though it was not my main monitor.

I also could not run the game higher than 1024x768.

I blamed this issue on Linux. Maybe it was a weird quirk that happened with WoW and Wine and Linux.

Well, I installed vanilla WoW again and it opens correctly on the main monitor and I have all the resolutions available to me.

It also runs a lot better then it did on my old system. I had a Intel 3rd Gen CPU that was running at 4GHz and boosted to 4,6, but I couldn't get a FPS higher then around 80.

With my RX 580 and a Ryzen 7 2700x I am running at my max monitor;s refresh (144Hz).

Pleasantly surprised how this all worked out and how good the AMD open-source driver is.

Guess I might as well sell my 1080 for some easy money.

I can't figure out what I have done wrong during the installation process. Does anyone have any clue as to how I might fix this issue? It might help to know that I'm using Linux Mint 19.1 as my OS.

Hey guys!

I just googled emulators for Linux the other day because I can count on my fingers the amount of games that both suit my needs, and work on proton, and what do you know - feckin dolphin works on Linux. That opens a whole world of the best games ever made on the best consoles ever.

Are there any obstacles I should know about? Does everything work nice? Does it need shitty third party bioses like that PS emulator? Man, I hope It supports Wii-u, that would mean it supports BOTW. But it's ok, I haven't played any game on the Wii either, so I got a lot to catch up :D

For the past week I've been looking over a ton of Distros and with some user help from here, and tons of videos looked over, I narrowed it down to..

Just staying with Solus, using Antergos, or using Manjaro.

I decided to try out Manjaro, considering, Antergos just throws you the most updates daily, sometimes more than once a day while Manjaro, like Solus, sits on it for abit, and waits for stability before releasing it. I really like that idea behind rolling releases, such as Solus.

I had a hard time deciding on KDE or Xfce as my DE, but ultimately decided on Xfce due to the customization and how sleek it looks on Manjaro..

I have never used an Arch based distribution before and I'm not sure where to begin as I head into this.

With Solus, my drivers were ready for me on the first install, and updated in the Software Suite.

Can I expect the same with Manjaro?

With Ubuntu/Debian based distro's it was a disaster trying to get my GPU set up properly, especially Linux Mint, was such a headache.

GPU: MSI R7 250 2gb OC'd edition, considered GCN 1.0 and still experimental under Linux as far as I last read (Fall 2018)

CPU: Phenom II x4 960t

My issue in the past was that, while Vulkan is amazingly beautiful and faster on Windows when using Emulators like Dolphin, or playing a game like Mad Max using the Vulkan API, I easily exceed in frames on Vulkan more than I do on DirectX or OpenGL.

When I last used Linux (Solus) I couldn't run Emulators at all.

Dolphin would crash when using Vulkan or be extremely slow using OpenGL.

PCSX2 would just crash to the desktop after trying to load a game.

Madmax however ran completely fine using Vulkan, actually better than it does on Windows.

I'm not sure what I was missing or what went wrong but it seems I can use Vulkan in games but when it came to emulators I couldn't, and my OpenGL performance was even worse than it is on Windows, which was a huge shock to me considering how much better Mesa is at OpenGL than Radeon software is on Windows.

I have been looking for the Arch Wiki and I can't really find an answer to my question.

Would be hugely appreciated if someone, or someones would be kind enough to help walk me through the first few steps of getting the drivers, and such.

I really want to ditch Windows, but if I can't even run something simple like PCSX2 or Dolphin, it really hurts lol.

  • overwatch-start.sh

xmodmap -e "keycode 37 = Control_R"

  • overwatch-exit.sh

xmodmap -e "keycode 37 = Control_L"

They both work correctly by using ./overwatch-start.sh but if I add them in lutris in pre and post launch, they won't work. Nothing happens. Any idea of what's happening?

Some help would be appreciated.

Also how is everything getting Anthem to run? I can get into the main menu but actually starting the game causes the game to crash in the loading screen with an error message about creatingtexture3d related to directx

It was a nice period in 2017 that LOL runs nicely in Wine without special configuration. But when I try to play this game again, it crashes when enter game mode (client works perfectly). I googled it and it is caused by LOL's anticheat system. I installed Wine Staging 4.2 which contains latest patches but doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thanks!

You would thing android being close to Linux there are going to be some decent emulators for android like Bluestacks for Windows, because of my low-end laptop, used to play PUBG Mobile on Windows with emulator 60fps, unfortunately there is no Emulator on Linux to run the game.

Makes me wonder why is there no Android Emulator on Linux yet there are like 10 on Windows ?

How is Linux for gaming in 2019? I had planned to switch back in 2017 but went against it because a lot of my games weren't supported - and I didn't want to have to run multiple OS systems all the time. Is this still the case?

I would love to ditch Windows and currently the only thing stopping me is gaming. Are new games supported like BFV or would I still have to use Windows for that?

The games I currently play: Warframe, Battlefield 4/5, Garry's Mod, Anthem and Truck Simulator (multiplayer).

Question is pretty much in the title.

I have two problems with Xserver currently (not looking for solutions tbh just giving context to my question). Im on a 4k monitor and I have to use 100% or 200% or 300% etc scaling. 150% scaling (seems to be known as fractional scaling?) is perfect but it is not easily possible.

Also I have a 1080p second monitor. If I set 200% scaling on my 4k, it also sets 200% on my second monitor which isn't ideal. I can't scale per display.

I have googled and looked into the solutions for these issues but they vary and seem like something I don't want to mess with for now. Neither of my scaling issues are huge problems though, I can live with it. However wayland is touted as being able to solve stuff like this. So it makes me wonder if there are any other implications with Wayland?

tl;dr Will it break every game? Will it be seamless and games won't even know wayland is there etc? How is it likely to play out?

How good is the support of Linux kernel 4.18 on old hardware?

I saw a used desktop bundle with monitor and keyboard that sells for Php 8,000. Current exchange rate here is $1 = Php53 (US dollar to Philippine Peso). The desktop bundle has an Athlon II X2.

There is also another desktop bundle but it has a Core i3 LGA 1155.

Just want to buy it for the sake of playing with old hardware. Maybe plug in a brand new Radeon RX 550 and see how far it can go with the latest indie games.

Thanks

Lubuntu 18.04 for some reason steam uninstalled it self I couldn't run it with command: steam

Re-installed it with sudo apt-get install steam, and it worked, logged it and all of the games that were installed previously were showing as not installed. For some reason I though its good idea to delete the folder manually of steam and reinstall it again, went in .local/share and deleted .steam it was about 50 Gbs, next thing I did sudo apt-get remove steam and then sudo apt-get install steam. Now this is the error I get: pc@PC:~$ steam tar: This does not look like a tar archive xz: (stdin): File format not recognized tar: Child returned status 1 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now find: /home/pc/.steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime: No such file or directory

Thanks for taking the time to read.

Changing clocks and voltages on the Radeon VII is slightly different from the previous Vega cards and i haven't found much information on this, thus i figured i'd dump my findings here.

Note that the /sys/ path used in my command might be different for you if you have more than a single GPU installed!

Making it work

If you aren't on a bleeding edge dist you will need to grab the vega20 firmware files from the linux-firmware git repository and place them under /lib/firmware/ for the card to work. Besides this the needed packages etc are the same as for other AMD cards. You will want at least kernel 4.20 and Mesa 18.3 to properly use the Radeon VII.

In order to be able to change voltages and clocks you will have to add amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff to your kernel command line. Additionally you need to set the performance level to manual which is done with the following command. echo "manual" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_dpm_force_performance_level

Reading the current values

To read the currently applied clocks and voltages use cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage which will give you an output similar to the following.

OD_SCLK: 0: 808Mhz 1: 1801Mhz OD_MCLK: 1: 1000Mhz OD_VDDC_CURVE: 0: 808Mhz 713mV 1: 1304Mhz 767mV 2: 1801Mhz 1032mV OD_RANGE: SCLK: 808Mhz 2200Mhz MCLK: 351Mhz 1200Mhz VDDC_CURVE_SCLK[0]: 808Mhz 2200Mhz VDDC_CURVE_VOLT[0]: 738mV 1218mV VDDC_CURVE_SCLK[1]: 808Mhz 2200Mhz VDDC_CURVE_VOLT[1]: 738mV 1218mV VDDC_CURVE_SCLK[2]: 808Mhz 2200Mhz VDDC_CURVE_VOLT[2]: 738mV 1218mV

OD_SCLK: shows the minimum and maximum core clocks. In my case the card will automatically pick any frequency between 808 MHz and 1801 Mhz.

OD_MCLK: shows the memory clock. This one is fixed and does not change.

OD_VDDC_CURVE: is the voltage curve consisting of three clock:voltage points. The most interesting here is point 2 which for my card shows a stock voltage of 1032 mV. This is also the one you are most likely going to change.

OD_RANGE: shows the valid input range for each setting.

Changing the core voltage

The following example shows setting the core voltage to 950 mV for a frequency of 1801 MHz.

echo "vc 2 1801 950" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage echo "c" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage

The first command is vc . The other points can be changed as well but there likely isn't much need to. The changes are not applied until the second command is run to commit.

The new voltage only appears to apply on a frequency change, thus if you use fixed clocks make sure to set the voltage first and then set the clock second.

Changing the core clock

For the core clock we can change the minimum and the maximum clock. The following commands set a minimum of 1000 MHz and a maximum of 1850 Mhz. echo "s 0 1000" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage echo "s 1 1800" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage echo "c" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage

Again the changes are not applied until the last command commits them.

Changing the memory clock

Changing the memory clock is almost the same as the core clock, just that there is only a single fixed frequency. The following sets a memory frequency of 1100 MHz

echo "m 1 1100" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage echo "c" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage

Changing the power limit

To set a power limit of 300W use the following: echo "300000000" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon2/power1_cap

No need to commit on this one. Reading the same file gives you the current value in microWatts.

Changing the fan speed

The fans can be manually controlled with:

echo "1" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon2/pwm1_enable echo "255" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon2/pwm1

The first command sets the fan mode to 1 = manual. Other options are 0 = disabled and 2 = automatic. Setting it to manual will stop the fans until you provide a value with the second command which sets the PWM duty cycle with a value from 0 to 255.

Setting pwm1_enable back to 2 will return to automatic fan control.

Use with wine/DXVK

The automatic clock and fan control does not seem to play overly well with dxvk games from what i found. I would get plenty of micro stutters and thermal throttling despite only little load on the card.

The microstutters were fixed by setting minimum and maximum core clocks to be the same so that there is no up and down clocking. Additionally raising the power limit seems to have helped a bit as well.

echo "300000000" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/hwmon/hwmon2/power1_cap echo "s 0 1800" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage echo "s 1 1800" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage echo "c" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage

For the thermal throttling i simply set the fans manually for now. Though i guess one could write a script for that to handle them based on the current temperature.

With these changes applied the stutters are pretty much gone and things run very smooth.

Some overclocking results

And to finish heres some overclocking results with Superposition benchmark scores for my card.

Core Clock|Memory Clock|Core Voltage|Superposition Score(4k)|Max Temp :---|:---|:--- 1800 MHz|1000 MHz|1032 mv|6566|88.0 C 1800 MHz|1000 MHz|950 mv|6532|75.0 C 1800 MHz|1100 MHz|950 mv|6644 (+1.3%)|77.0 C 1800 MHz|1200 MHz|950 mv|6768 (+3.2%)|79.0 C 1900 MHz|1000 MHz|1010 mv|6803 (+3.7%)|86.0 C 2000 MHz|1000 MHz|1060 mv|7059 (+7.6%)|99.0 C 2050 MHz|1000 MHz|1090 mv|7177 (+9.4%)|107.0 C 2000 MHz|1200 MHz|1060 mv|7330 (+11.8%)|101.0 C 2050 MHz|1200 MHz|1090 mv|7472 (+13.9%)|109.0 C

Core voltages shown are as reported by sensors during the benchmark.

Hey, I switched to MX Linux and want to use some emulators like I did on windows. So I plugged in the switch pro controller and it didn't work. So I tried my gamecube controller to pc adapter the input was really weird not usable. It did weird things the whole time it emulates the mouse. So I tried my xbox one controller and it has the same problem. So anyway to calibrate the gamepads and that they don't emulate a mouse?

Hello, so I have been debating returning to Linux. I currently run a Phenom II x4 960t with an MSI R7 250 2gb ddr3 special edition and 16gb of ram.

I'm not necessarily looking for a lightweight distro either, just something that works well with gaming, preferably bleeding edge like Solus, but not a requirement, has a comfortable desktop environment similar to Budgie on Solus, and is noob friendly. (I'm not that experienced in Linux, but I know my way around somewhat)

I've used in the past..

Ubuntu Mate, Solus, Sparky Linux, antiX, Mint 19, Lubuntu and Kubuntu.

I'm currently interested in..

Peppermint, Antergos, Fedora 29, MX Linux, Ubuntu (never tried default Ubuntu) , and I really like the look of Parrot OS.

I'm not looking to test out a bunch of different Distros, so im video searching and researching for awhile til I'm ready to settle. Looking for opinions :)

grady_vuckovic

Please don't immediately throw fruit at me, or yell or anything..

I'm not even saying I'm totally on board with this idea myself, I just wanted to toss the idea out here, for a healthy conversation and friendly debate on the merits, pros and cons, of this idea.

The idea is pretty simple:

Game developers port games to the platforms that are worth porting to. A platform is worth porting to, if there are lots of sales from that platform. Lots of sales means 'worth it', very few sales means 'not worth it'. Remember at one point, even the PC platform overall wasn't getting certain games, because PC was perceived as a platform full of pirates, and hence 'not worth it', because lots of users didn't necessarily mean lots of sales.

The GNU/Linux platform has always been seen as 'Not worth it', because there are fewer potential customers.

What if, to make up for lower overall numbers, if the Linux gaming community made up for that, partially at least, by buying native Linux games twice (or more) on multiple accounts as a show of support to any game developer that supports Linux?

Crazy idea? Dumb? Could work? Brilliant?

Share what you think, I'd love to see a debate over the merits of this idea.

(And if it has merit, a possible name for this idea to help spread it? 'Two for Linux'? 'Penguins Tip?')

I was checking out Distrowatch and it seems MX Linux is #1 in the last 3 months. I've never heard of it until now.

What are your thoughts of it as being a daily driver for gaming?

Why is there stuttering in some Windows games running on Linux through Steam Play? It disappears after I have played it long enough. Games I played that exhibit the behavior I mentioned are:

  1. The Witcher 3
  2. Prey (2017)
  3. Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  4. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

It was already asked in this subreddit and it was said that the cause is the shader cache being built. If that is the case, can the shader cache be built prior to launching the game? Why or why not?

Sorry if I sound stupid, I'm no programmer. I hope someone can explain it in an easy to understand manner.

Thanks

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to run SteamVR in Debian Stretch, but it's a hit-or-miss experience. Sometimes my HTC Vive boots up just fine and I'm able to move around the mountain home scenery and even get into a game, and other times nothing happens. Also, more often-than-not, when I try to open SteamVR from within Steam, my entire computer locks up, and I'm forced to perform a REISUB. This also usually happens if I do successfully make it into a game and try to bring up the Steam settings. I'm running an Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti using the proprietary 410.104 driver directly from Nvidia's website. I've also set up the udev rules that are mentioned in the README.md of https://github.com/ValveSoftware/SteamVR-for-Linux. I have a suspicion that the culprit is that I'm trying to run the SteamVR app from within Big Picture mode, but then sometimes it works and I don't know what to think.

If anyone knows of any solutions, or if I'm just out of luck because I'm using stable Debian, I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.2 and using an Xbox 360 controller with Lutris to play games. I'm not having issues with other games and the controller is detected by the wine joysticks window. The game loads perfectly fine after some minor tweaking and I can play with Keyboard and Mouse however when I try to use the controller no input is detected.

I'm using the winesteam runner in Lutris to play this game an have tried using x360ce, playing around with the different settings and some other things I cant fully remember everything I've attempted but I don't even know where to look from here so if anyone could shed some light on this situation it would be appreciated.

My humble two pennies on the Endaget article:

https://www.engadget.com/2019/02/19/linux-gaming-steam-valve-epic-games-store/

This kind of "journalism" is "encouraged" (one way or another) by MS marketing team because they are quaking in fear and having to work extra hard to stay relevant.

Like how often does engadget even bother writing anything serious about Linux? https://www.engadget.com/tag/linux/ , nearly all of these articles are at best tangential to Linux (Android, Chrome, Steam). Engadget covers bits of clever hardware, but all of a sudden we have a long wall of text covering Linux just to claim that it's in danger of becoming irrelevant? Ok whatever.

Fortunately the Streisand effect is a thing and having a popular media channel post something like this will get more eyes on the idea that gaming on Linux is a thing (that Valve and many other talented people support).

TLDR; The FUD machine means that MS is really scared and all the sycophants are following to tow the party line, cue Streisand Effect, GLHF!

Just wanted to see if anyone else has been having this problem before I submit a bug report.

I recently bought a new 1440p 144hz monitor (ASUS ROG Swift PG279QZ) and replaced my Nvidia GTX970 with a Nvidia RTX2070. I love CS:GO's Danger Zone mode, but it was repeatedly crashing under my new setup. After trying every combination of new and old hardware, I've narrowed it down to the resolution. If I play at 1440p, the crash happens in every match, regardless of which gfx card I'm using. The crash never happens when playing at 1080p, again regardless of the card. I've verified the game files and I've reinstalled the game, with no luck. It happens regardless of whether I use steam-native or steam-runtime. It happens whether I'm windowed or fullscreen.

The crash happens when pulling out my tablet. The crash has never happened in the warm-up phase, no matter how many times I switch to the tablet. It only happens after the match has started, and usually not until after a minute or two into the game. I've tried switching to the tablet multiple times, and usually it will work a couple of times, but inevitably it will crash. The crash has never happened during any other game mode.

The dmesg output for the crash is:

csgo_linux64[941]: segfault at 20d739bd0 ip 00007eff7f1abdf1 sp 00007fffc58b8600 error 4 in vguimatsurface_client.so[7eff7f0be000+179000]

There are practically no google results for "vguimatsurface_client" that seem relevant to me.

I don't think this is the same as #1908 because it doesn't happen until well after I've deployed and landed.

Anyone else experience this? Any suggestions about what I could try?

Hi there,

I know in several games the overlay is not working but I wanted to take a closer look at it. I am playing Star Citizen and launch it via Lutris what I launch via steam. The overlay is preloaded and kept correctly till in the game. In game I can open the community overlay, have the fps counter in the corner, yet can't take Screenshots. I have tried playing with the keybind but had no luck. It just doesn't work at all.

Do you may be have a hint on what could be wrong?

Thank you in advance, greetings ~ent

Not sure of this against the subs rules remove if so.

Just thought it was interesting at the complete contemp some people have against even asking a developer if we might see a Linux port.

Hopefully with the continued work done by Linux developers themselves and valve with the development of proton this hostility will disappear.

I'm currently running on an old build in need of revitalization.

SSD Primary, 1TB HDD

GTX 960

MSI 970 ATX

AMD FX6300 @3.5GHz w/Fan Cooling (Worst decision ever)

8GB DDR3 RAM

And I plan to do a budget upgrade to:

Intel Pentium Gold 5400 @3.7GHz Dual-Core w/hyperthreading and watercooling

8GB (for now) DDR4 RAM

MSI B360 Mortar Titanium MicroATX

Before you start asking 'why', yes this "upgrade" is technically still out of date, but the 5400 is an AMAZING bang-for-buck upgrade comparatively to the issue-ridden FX6300, notably one of the worst AMD CPU's in recent history. However, the change to this socket type will easily allow for upgrades to more recent generation Intel's down the line without requiring a Mobo upgrade.

YOUR HONOR, WHERE IS THE QUESTION?

My plan is to upgrade to Linux (likely Ubuntu), and I have been itching to upgrade before the parts are ordered, so I want to know if swapping parts after the install is done will be more hassle than it's worth, or will Ubuntu adapt to the new parts relatively well similar to how windows 10 does these days (which I'll admit, throwing an SSD of an already installed Windows into a new build and it booting first try is one of the best things they've done in a while)?

BringBackManaPots

Everywhere I look, the question "how does linux wine work" yields a ton of how-to videos that deal with installing and using wine. But how does it work under the hood? When wine is "translating windows systems calls", is it really anything more than a collection of shell scripts that swap dos commands with bash commands?

Or is wine something hairier? Does wine translate machine code? What's really going on that makes it so difficult to develop - and why does every game seem to have its own wine configs/prefixes?

I've currently got an R9 290x and it's been a great card but it's starting to get a little long in the tooth, especially with the performance cost for some titles from switching to Linux. It doesn't officially support Vulkan and I've been looking to replace it.

I just don't know what would be a worthwhile upgrade. I know that AMD has been doing good work with their Linux drivers, but most people still seem to be running Nvidia. I'm trying to stay under $300 and I'm prioritizing Linux support and Proton performance.

Any advice?

Hi there.
I do not know if I am at the right place to ask such question but anyway.

I wanted to play with a friend using Hamachi. But we faced the problem that we cannot see each other in-game. We can ping each other PC.

So the question is: Is there any solution for this?

P.S.: I'm on mac running WC3 via Wine and he is on Windows. (I know that you can buy it. And that I should buy PC instead)

Thanks.

I have been trying to get a program known as LOOT running under wine. According to this guide in order to get it running I need to set dwrite.dll to (native, builtin) which is fine but, I also need to set libcef.dll to (native, builtin). The issue with setting libcef.dll to (native, builtin) is that it doesn't exist in the libraries tab. I have tried downloading and adding it to C:/windows/system32 but it still doesn't show up in the libraries tab.

I would appreciate any help with getting this dll file added to my wine prefix.

Hello all, I have been trying to get Bioshock Remastered (GOG edition) to work for the past few days with the manually downloaded files from the website.

So far, using Lutris, tried various versions of WINE (tkg or not from 3.21 to 4.2) with and without DXVK. No dice, whereby I will get to the splash "Bioshock" screen whereby it will then crash to black. Enabling esync will not even get to this screen.

On top of all this, I have tried running Bioshock Remastered through GOG Galaxy (itself running through WINE), however this does not seem to make a difference, and the logs aren't particularly clear, since they just refer to GOG itself.

Host system:

  • OS: Arch Linux
  • WM: i3
  • Kernel: 4.20.11.arch1-1
  • Nvidia Driver: 415.27.0
  • Video Card: GTX 1080

With all the wine variants, I have used winecfg to add the following libraries:

  • d3d10 (native)
  • d3d10_1 (native)
  • d3d10core (native)
  • d3d11 (native)
  • dxgi (native)

And set it to Windows 7 (or 10).

I have also (using winetricks) made sure to install mscorefonts for this. Furthermore, I have tried with and without the /SILENT option to the game options.

Currently, I have 'installed' the game through GOG Galaxy, in the hope that it stop the creation of the /home/user/Documents/BioShockHD, and to keep my system more tidy, however it leads to the same logs and crashes as manually installing the game from the separate files.

The logs seem to remain the same (or similar), regardless of what I do. So I am unsure of where to go next with this.

Any help would be appreciated and I hope you have a nice day.

Hi, complete retard here, I was following this guide for getting Steam PC games to work on Mac, specifically The Last Remnant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciOb5NkTCaA

Everything was working fine until I clicked "play", and all I get is a windowed Black Screen. Sometimes it plays the "Square-Enix" and Unreal Engine logos before going to an endless black screen again. Is there any fix for this?

Hey guys,

I'm new in LinuxGaming, switched from Win10 to Ubuntu 18.04 few weeks ago.

Now i found out how to use SteamPlay and Proton and i really like the idea!

But my problem is, that i can't start Games with SteamPlay under using AMDGPU-PRO.

My Main game is CS:GO, whichs works perfectly with amdgpu-pro, got 200fps in average.

So, i deinstalled all amd drivers and used mesa 19, now Steamplay Games working nicely, for example Skyrim Special Edition or Catan Universe, but my CSGO Frames droping down to 100 and when shooting and stuff under it goes under 60fps with really lags.

After installing amdgpu again, csgo works perfectly

Can someone help me? I really want to use Ubuntu further!

Like many others here I've had success running RE2 with Steam/Proton. I can start the campaign and begin playing but when the level changes the game will hang indefinately while showing "now loading" in the bottom left corner. The only way to exit the game is to force close, which will then produce this message.

Hello,

In the past i had some issues running frostpunk on my system. I had frequent chrashes and at the beginning it was really dark for me.

My kernel version: 4.20.8-200.fc29.x86_64

My wine version: 4.20

My game version: GoG

My graphics card: Nvidia 1060, with nvidia driver.

0) Log in on a xorg session

1) Frostpunk on my linux is a ram beast. Make sure to have as minimum ram consumption in the background for the best result.

2) Disable Esync

3) Enable DXVK, else the game will be really dark

4) set the key nvapi,nvapi64 to enabeld

That was all enjoy a long and deadly winter. :)

Im going to do a new PC build, later this year, and I figured Id give Linux gaming a try during that time, too. Ive been caring more and more about DRM-free products and open-source software in recent year, so it feels like something I need to at leave give a chance. Although, I have a few questions.

  1. Ive heard that AMD offer better driver support, but Nvidia currently has objectively better price to performance graphics cards.

  2. I dont use Steam, I use GOG. Is there a way to use Proton with my Windows GOG games to make them run on Linux?

  3. Im planning on going with a 3440x1440p 144Hz monitor with my next build. Are there any support issues for running games on Linux, on an ultrawide and/or high refresh rate monitor?

  4. Im assuming I wont be able to do nifty, but pointless, RGB stuff with my components in Linux? As far as Ive seen, all of that software supports only Windows.

I really want as close to an ultimate gaming experience with this next build. Although, I also want to support DRM-free and open-source software as much as possible. So Id prefer to go with both an AMD CPU and GPU, as well as continuing to prioritize GOG for my games. Although, I dont want to spend all this money to have an extremely lack luster gaming experience. So Ill probably use the Epic Store when I have no alternative. I might even go with Nvidia, but AMDs Navi doesnt look promising.

Most of all that I want to play will be Classic WoW at 3440x1440p/144FPS. If I can manage to do that well on Linux, I could at least be happy with that and dual boot Windows for other games.

Hi, I'm kinda new here so if I'm doing something wrong please point it out.

Hi I've been following this guide: (https://linuxconfig.org/improve-your-wine-gaming-on-linux-with-dxvk) on how to install dxvk and I've got up as far as when i need to install vulkan itself, I can't seem to install the package vulcan-utils because it has vulkan-tools as a dependency and when i install vulkan-tools manually and then try to install vulkan-utils it gives me either the same error or that installing vulkan-tools has broken the vulkan-utils package. Any help is much appreciated.

What do you guys think about getting to use Ray-Tracing in a native Linux application (for what ever reason)?
Cool or just another senseless tool?

In my case I think it would be cool to play around on a Linux box, it kind of feels a Linux environment would be cool to play in when it comes to efficiency (referring to open source drivers help everyone to see the faults thus improve the magnitude of your playground/workstation/toolset). Discuss away... or don't.

Hello Linux lovers! Here to announce https://arena.sh/ a web-based browser I've made with focus on open-source arena shooter games that work on all platforms. Upon viewing server details, besides the official download links, terminal commands are also generated to launch the games. Here, I mostly utilize the find command with low depth (so should find the bin quick). Of course, games like QuakeWorld already have their URI scheme, so should work right away without need of a command. In past weeks, I just wanted to make it a bit stable before sharing. Thanks for trying out!

As I ready to build my new system, I'm torn between purchasing a either an nVidia 1070, or AMD 590 (not sure on the Vegas) . I'd like to know who is providing the best driver support these days? Thanks!

Hey guys.

I love linux but there's something that still hold me back from removing my Windows partition altogether.

I usually like to play android games and having an emulator is really handy. Sadly, there's no such thing as Nox, Memu or BlueStack for linux. But I naively thought I could play android games on linux as long as I have an emulator.

The reality is that, I've tried all type of emulator I could find on linux (Androidx86, Genymotion, Anbox, RemixOS, ect) but all of them fail to install 80% of the games I want to play. On the play store they are marked as "incompatible", and when I try to manually install their APKs, I get this half-assed fucked up message: "App not installed". Both on my physical phone and on the emulators on Windows 100% of these games run.

I really don't know what the heck is going on with Linux so that a simple game cannot be installed on ALL of the emulators you can find on the market.

I need some help guys.

I've seen a decent number of post that either directly address, or spark up conversation and debate about the ease-of-use and performance of proton/steam play. The typical contributions fall into two camps typically: a) the user clicked play and more or less never even noticed that the game wasn't running natively or b) the user posts a short essay outlining every tweak and hack they had to employ only to spend more time trying to get the game to run than playing it.

I've been running Linux exclusively for almost 3 years now I think.. And I have noticed that in my experience, when a game doesn't just work I actually would rather just play something else. I can't figure out if it's laziness, or growing disinterest in modern games, or some sort of subconscious bias against things I can't use on Linux.

Anyone else feeling like this? Steam, for all the credit valve is due for proton and Linux support, is a cesspool of a digital storefront and I think using it as a Linux user filters out a huge quantity of garbage. I've found some absolutely fantastic games since switching to Linux because they weren't lost in the tsunami of trash on windows.

For me, the longer I use Linux for gaming, the less I want to play games;
