Gwent connection issues. Please help.

Hello,

I am using Linux, more specifically Pop_OS! 19.10 and I am having trouble playing the game.

I have installed the game and GOG Galaxy with Lutris and have in the past been able to play it just fine.

However recently, about 9 out of ten times, the game will give an error saying User is not signed in, to continue start the GOG Galaxy client and signed in, but the launcher is running, and I am signed in. I have tried the 1.2.67 and the 2.0 versions of the GOG Galaxy launcher to no avail, 9/10 times it gives the same error.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Why did you join linux?

Hello friends!

My reason for joining linux was, pretty different and esoteric from the rest of you.

I joined linux in 2015 by installing Ubuntu 15.10 on my laptop because , I needed a fortran compiler for CodeBlocks(don't ask) due to my infatuation with trying out nearly every programming language.(it was the honeymoon period and I was discovering programming as a new thing and got really excited)

So I installed Ubuntu 15.10 and went about on a journey to discover a very different operating system and approach to solving problems.

So I would like to hear your stories as well?

Dark souls via proton/steam

I'm trying to follow the advice from here on Linux mint 19.3 (Ubuntu 18.04), proton 5.05 and when trying many "bug/workaround" messages popped up. Others had the same problem which prompted the following remark:

Ok, what basically you need to: You need to create a new WINE prefix, which will need to be 32bit(in the "570940" folder which is the prefix for the DS one) After that you will be able to install vcrun 2017

I have no idea how to accomplish this. Any advice?

For example, how can I get a command line launch to see what errors DS is throwing?

MechWarrior 5 Co-Op no longer works in Wine

Hi folks, long time lurker first time poster. Title mostly says it all. I've purchased Mechwarrior 5 Mercs and have it running on Lutris through the Epic game store. I've successfully been playing Co-Op with a friend who is running the game on Windows 7. Last weekend we tried to fire it up (honestly unsure if it was after an update or not) and the game fails to connect. Irrespective of who is hosting, connection will fail. I've checked my local ufw and it's disabled. I'm at a loss. I don't know too much about getting lutris logs to see if there is an API error. Running lutris with -debug only gives me output for the Epic Launcher, not MW5 itself. Happy to try and suggestions. I've tried using various wine versions, from tkg-unity-4.1-x86_64, tkg-4.0-x86_64, to lutris-5.0-x86_64. All run the single player game fine, but can't do co-op.

Native Linux Game installing Windows Version

I am trying to install American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2, both of which are native Linux titles (as well as Windows). On Steam, I am trying to install it, with SteamPlay disabled for all titles (meaning it will install the Linux version if available, if not tell me its not available for my platform unless I set a Proton version in the settings of the game before installing). It lets me install without setting a Proton version, but then fails to start saying its missing the executable "/bin/American Truck Simulator/linux_x64/amtrucks". When I go to that folder, it has installed win_x64 instead of the Linux version.

Has anyone else had issues with this in the past? One thing, when I first got the game through the Humble Bundle, it was initially installed on Windows. Not sure if that is the issue.

Steam Support said to make sure im on Ubuntu, which doesnt really help much because I have tried it on Arch, Fedora as well as the latest Ubuntu LTS (like recommended by Steam) and had the same results from all 3 distros.

Unturned on GTX970

I was playing Unturned earlier and had to turn down the volume when I heard a strange noise. That noise was my GPU fans, which I never hear for any game. I opened PSensor and it was using 92% of memory, and the temperature was 75 Celsius. Is this normal or is my GPU getting old, now I'm worried lol.

Modern LAN based FPS with real life weapons?

Currently, my family is playing a lot of deathmatch AssaultCube, CS:GO (though we need tricks get it up and running) and Solider of Fortune.

We also played DUSK but only 2 of us that are in the house right now enjoy it.

Are there any linux native modern FPS with real life weapons with LAN support? Bonus points if it's on GOG.

SimpleScreenRecorder appreciation thread

If all you wanna do is record a gameplay, do yourself a favor and use https://www.maartenbaert.be/simplescreenrecorder/

I've tried OBS Studio, as recommended in many places (important thing, I'm playing on A8-7600 APU). Lost frames in capture, even in 720p 30fps, heavy framerate hit, too dark picture for fullscreen games - most likely gamma-related, the list goes on. Performance was just bad with both software encoding and vaapi.

And then I've tried SSR. OpenGL hijack didn't work with The Witcher 2, bummer. No vaapi support, bummer. With my hopes down, I've tried software encoding. At first, I wasn't even sure if it's working, framerate hit was that small. But it does, and it works perfectly.

Try it, you won't regret it.

Installing Steam Through Wine

Hey all!

I have a question about installing steam through wine. I've followed this tutorial video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zv3uzG0ku-U for information on how to play Fallout New Vegas on my MacBook Pro. I've done everything correct and then I find a dilemma.

When dragging SteamSetup.exe into the wine terminal and pressing enter, the Steam Setup menu appears. Then when it prompts me to choose an "install location" a pre made folder/file appears titled C:/Program Files (x86)\Steam\ After this I click install and i am met with a message saying "Error opening file for writing" and I cant continue. Can someone please help? If I choose another file it says it must be empty. I just wanna explore the Mojave wasteland for the 50th time during this quarantine!

THANKS!!!

Honest opinion on linux gaming for competitive titles

Hi r/linux_gaming

After using linux for gaming and daily use for more than 2 years, i decided to share my expirences, both good and bad. First off i am a gamer first, i always enjoyed playing games since i was little but has we all know gaming on linux wasn't "easy" has it is today.

I tried linux in mid 2016, i started with ubuntu 16.04 lts release, at the time i only played 2 games, Counter Strike Global Offensive and Dota 2. Those games thankfully ran natively on linux so i was happy but at the same time not so happy, mainly due to performance issues. In a game like Counter Strike where every frame matters i was seeing less 15-20% of the performance i had on windows, but then i thought okay if i lock my fps to 100 maybe i will get a much smoother experience. It partially solved the problem since in scrimms (5 vs 5) my fps would be stable but if i wanted to pratice my aim on a deathmatch server with 20 or more people on it, my fps would tank hard to the lower 50. But there was another major issue , on linux the mouse sensitivity just felt different from the windows counter part even with raw input enable in game, 1.25 sensitivity on counter strike with raw input on windows was cleary different from linux.

That's when i gave up on Counter Strike and decided to try Dota 2 , maybe it would run better since on windows i normally ran the game fine on high settings with the fps locked to 91. But yet again the experience was worse that on windows, at 1080p high settings i was barely getting 60 fps, and on heavy team fights with all the effects it could go down to the 35-40 fps range. That's when i decided to deleted the partition i had made to try linux.

Fastfoward to 2018 i decided to check linux and how gaming has evolved on it, and to my suprise the experience was drastically improve. Games ran much smoother with better fps, the installation method was easir overhall thanks to programms like lutris. I upgrade my graphics card before installing linux (from a GTX 660 TI to a RX 570), and this time i decided to go with manjaro linux.

Around this time i was already retiring from Counter Strike competitive scene and leaning more towards casual gaming. The very first game i tried after reinstalling linux was Overwatch, since around that time the game was really big and had a more active community. At 1080p medium settings with the fps locked at 81, the game was buttery smooth. After seeing such a good performance i decided to try the Dota 2 and Counter Strike Global Offensive. In Dota 2 with everything on low settings except texture quality the game ran fine above 90fps only dropping in heavy team fights. Now Counter Strike was still a big issue, playing with everything on low excepts shadows and texture that were set to medium i was seeing on scrimms 150-200 fps but still on deathmatchs servers with more than 20 people my computer would struggle maintaining 100fps, and the sensitivity was still felt different from windows.

Linux gaming has come a long way, but i fell like unless you got a decent computer you are going to be at a disavantage, but for casual gaming is an awesome alternative to windows.

I hope i made my opinion clear since english is not my first language.

My Computer Specs:

i5 3570 3.4Ghz

16 GB RAM 1600Mhz

RX 570 4GB

Is it possible to force MSAA on DXVK Direct11?

I see on the (https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/blob/master/dxvk.conf)[example] config that there is an option "d3d9.forceSwapchainMSAA", but no corresponding option for D3D11. I was going to put up an issue on the github repo for a similar option to be added into d3d11, but I saw that they ignore issues with no log files. Is there any way to do this?

Borderlands 3 Technical Observations (Performance Issues? Read This)

Since the release of Borderlands 3 on Steam, there has been a far greater quantity and frequency of submitted compatibility reports to the various venues for such matters. While this is excellent for resolving issues related to game functionality, most do not provide information about the actual performance that users are seeing nor any tweaks they have made for improved performance - most are just simply it works/it does not work reports. Furthermore, many of these posts did not note critical information about the user's graphics stack - particularly the ICD vendor, ICD version, Mesa version (if applicable), and (in the case of Mesa) whether ACO was enabled. It's also generally accepted that everyone is using DX11, although I have known DX12 to work on one occasion.

Over the the past week or two, I've been perplexed by the performance disparity between Windows and Linux, at least on my hardware. I initially ran the game on Linux and found that performance averaged 50 FPS at Low-ish settings at a resolution of 1080p, and dropped to about 38 FPS during "busy" scenes (e.g. battles with lots of particle effects, which is about 70% of any borderlands game). This finally bothered me enough as, given the hardware I'm using, I should be able to get minimum of 60FPS at 1440p with Bad Ass presets (Ultra, with increased Volumetric Fog and SSR). After yanking my one Windows drive out of the machine it was in (it travels from machine to machine), I ran the game in Windows for several hours (an experience that was very stressful, I do not want to use Windows for any extended period) and found that my suspicions about performance were correct. I was seeing an average 70FPS in Sanctuary and The Handsome Jackpot (two maps that seem to be extra greedy) at max settings. This showed a pretty big performance gap, especially compared to what users that did report performance figures with DXVK were seeing.

Obviously DXVK performance will always be, in theory, less than that of "native" DirectX as there is additional work going on to translate API calls and keep track of some things; however, the disparity here was still far too great. I also noticed that time spent per-frame on CPU tasks (per the in-game stats) was identical to (if not lower than, somehow) that of Windows - about 8ms per frame. Time per-frame spent on GPU tasks (per the in-game stats) was about 120%-200% of Windows - weird, right? Given that the upgrade from Mesa 19 to 20.0.0.2 did yield a moderate performance increase (but not much, about 9FPS - just enough to make some particularly bad battles "playable"), I figured that the Vulkan ICD could be sending less-than-optimal instructions to the GPU (or something to that effect). Going off that assumption, I tried Mesa 20.0.0.4 which (based on patch notes) I was not expecting to do anything special - and did not see any performance improvements. This morning, however, I thought about trying AMD's ICD. After setting up the game to use the AMD ICD instead of the system's Mesa ICD I noticed a dramatic performance improvement. We're talking 70 FPS at 1440p Ultra/Very High where I was previously seeing 48 FPS at 1080p Very Low. There were a few odd times when I was seeing weird behaviour (e.g. reported framerate is 100 FPS, actual framerate seems like 24 FPS), and I'm monkeying with things to try and rectify that, but it's overall a very promising option.

It should go without saying that all of the above information hasn't really been gathered in the most scientific manner. Nonetheless, each different configuration has been able to reproduce the same results I've attributed to it with the exception of the AMDVLK ICD (as I have only used it once thus far). With that being said, I still think that AMDVLK is probably the best option in my case for this game.

TL;DR: AMDVLK performance with Borderlands 3 is roughly 2x that of Mesa's Vulkan implementation


You can get AMDVLK from the AMDVLK github page, the actual source code is retrieved using google's repotool, so follow directions in the README to compile the ICD.

You can use the ICD with any application without having to install it or replace your existing ICD. To do this, copy amd_icd64.json from drivers/AMDVLK/Ubuntu/amd_icd64.json (in the root of the repo) to a convenient location, and modify the property .ICD.library_path in the JSON file such that it is the fully qualified path to ./icd/amdvlk64.so beneath the build directory.

When launching the game, add the fully qualified path to ./lib beneath build directory to the beginning of LD_LIBRARY_PATH and set VK_ICD_FILENAMES to the fully qualified path to your modified amd_icd64.json.

As a result, your launch command (for Steam) should look something like this: LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/path/to/amdvlk/build/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH" VK_ICD_FILENAMES="/path/to/amdvlk/icd.json" %command%.

Obviously, you can copy the files out of the build directory and put them wherever - I'm just doing this for my convenience. Also, this is really only applicable for people using Mesa's ICD as their system default.


An aside:

With the 5.5-GE-1 patchset, media playback ingame is supposedly fixed; however, I am already past the video display bit and have no way to verify whether this works beyond starting a new character and testing. What concerns me is that, in a fresh prefix with this version of Proton, I'm still not seeing startup movies (2K Logo, AMD Intro, Gearbox Logo, Claptrap Dancing, etc...). Because nobody has really produced any documentation of their experience with this patchset, I'm hoping that someone here can tell me what they are (or are not) seeing with the same version.

Street Fighter IV - WMV movies not playing

I'm running Ultra Street Fighter IV with wine 5.5 on Debian Buster (current stable). Everything runs fine except for game movies not playing. Running from the terminal I see following errors:

0009:err:gstreamer:gstdecoder_init_gst Failed to play stream.
004d:err:gstreamer:watch_bus decodebin5: Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in.
004d:err:gstreamer:watch_bus gstdecodebin2.c(4640): gst_decode_bin_expose (): /GstBin:bin5/GstDecodeBin:decodebin5:
no suitable plugins found:

This is a 32bit wine prefix with wmp9 installed via winetricks. I believe the problem isn't in the prefix itself but in my system lacking gstreamer WMV codecs. I've searched the web and found many people reporting similar issues with various games but no resolution that would work for me. A common advice was installing gstreamer ugly codecs in 32 bit version. Here are the gstreamer packages installed on my system:

gstreamer1.0-alsa:amd64
gstreamer1.0-alsa:i386
gstreamer1.0-gl:amd64
gstreamer1.0-gl:i386
gstreamer1.0-libav:amd64

gstreamer1.0-plugins-good:amd64
gstreamer1.0-plugins-good:i386
gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly:amd64
gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly:i386
gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio:amd64
gstreamer1.0-x:amd64

libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-0:i386
libgstreamer1.0-0:amd64
libgstreamer1.0-0:i386

Note that amd64 bit version of gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad is missing because it conflicts with the 32bit version, so it's either-or. Either way videos don't work. Anyone knows how to resolve this?

Remnants of the Precursors will open-source and start its public beta in 6 days (Easter)

Hello all. I've been told that this is a good subreddit to let everyone know the public beta for Remnants of the Precursors, a game under development for about 5 years, is imminent.

This game is written completely in Java and all of the code is going to be open-sourced under a copyleft GPL. There will be different licenses for different media types (code, art, writing and sound) since each of these creators has different wishes about distribution. The game will obviously run in Linux, and I've tuned it so that it will run on PCs as inexpensive as a Raspberry Pi.

Remnants of the Precursors is a very polished modernization of the original "Master of Orion" from 1993. Although the beta is not yet available for download, you will be able to get it from itch.io: https://rayfowler.itch.io/remnants-of-the-precursors

That page also gives a decent idea of the amazing art quality from that page. The Explorminate gaming website has been streaming the game quite a bit recently as the beta approaches, so there are VODs available if you want to see the gameplay: https://www.twitch.tv/explorminate/videos

If you have an interest in game development or simply want to see what a serious game developed in Java looks like (trust me, I've had a lot of doubters), then you should check out the public beta on Easter. Although I try to centralize all of the discussion about the game to the /r/rotp subreddit, I will respond to any questions about it here as well.

How does one force Wine to run in fullscreen?

I've installed Fallout Tactics and got it to work fine. The only problem is, the GOG version of the game forces some kind of high-res patch that makes the game run in full HD. When I go to the menu, I don't get any resolution options, it just always runs in 1080p. Everything in the game is really tiny on my 15" screen and it looks horrible, so I would like the resolution to be set to something lower. I can launch the game in virtual desktop, which does run it in low-res, but it's still in a tiny window in the middle of my HD screen, which is no good.

Is there a way to force virtual desktop to go fullscreen or some other way of launching an app in low-res?

How To Install And Run The Outer Worlds On Linux

Hi everyone.

As part of my running Windows games on Linux series on my YouTube channel, I have produced a video on installing and running The Outer Worlds through Lutris.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3B1qXjb9nO0

The main thing to bear in mind is NOT to use the The Outer Worlds Lutris script as this no longer allows you to launch the game, but instead use the Epic Games Store Lutris script.

I discovered this the hard way and had to re-download the game again, not the end of the world on my connection, but I can expect frustration on other peoples.

The second thing to bear in mind is that you need to run the Media Foundation Wine workaround if you want the cut scenes to play correctly.

In summary:

Step 1 Download The Epic Games Store Lutris Script

https://lutris.net/games/epic-games-store/

The process is automatic, and once finished sign into Epic Games Store and download the game.

If you get a prompt to install Wine mono, accept and install.

Step 2 Install The Media Foundation Workaround For Wine

https://github.com/z0z0z/mf-install

This script will allow the cut scenes to play, so download the script from the Github page, extract it and open up a Terminal in the extracted folder.

Type into a Terminal window, a command that references where The Outer Worlds is installed to on your system.

For example - WINEPREFIX="/home/ryanj/Games/epic-games-store" ./mf-install.sh

Once done, the game will launch.

Performance - on my system, I can maintain 1080p 60FPS with the exception of loading games or transitioning to new areas where my FPS takes a nose dive for about 10 seconds.

I suspect that this is due to shader cache compiling as once done, the game is smooth of anything.

Hopefully this will be helpful for someone, but any questions get in touch, and if you like my content, please consider subscribing.

Thanks

In these trying times, where all one can do is read and play games, I gathered a group of friends to play Team Fortress 2 together. The problem was, we couldn't figure out how to play in a server together. After much tinkering, I figured out a way. So this is a guide from noobs, for noobs.

The basic idea is to create a virtual network, so that people can join your server using your local IP address.

Disclaimer 1: Yes, I know that you can use serveme.tf to rent a server for free. It's a great service and a good alternative to hosting your own server, but there's a limited number of (freely) available servers, a time limit, plus the fact that you're making use of other people's generosity.

Disclaimer 2: Yes, I also know that you can just join a public server. But sometimes you just want to play a casual game with people you know, like the digital equivalent of a board game. Massively unbalanced fights, bots with names like [VALVE]N****rkiller and various other problems might just detract from that cozy atmosphere.

1) Preparations * Install Steam. * Install TF2 through Steam. This should all be pretty straightforward. * Install ZeroTier. This is the software we're going to be using to create our virtual network. It's available in the AUR for people on Arch(based), and for everyone else, the website does a good job of guiding you through the installation. (I guess Hamachi would do just as well here, but ZeroTier just does the trick for me.)

2) Creating a virtual network

  • Set up a virtual network in ZeroTier. Again, the website guides you through this process really well. Make the network private or public depending on your preference, and leave the other settings as they are unless you know what you're doing.
  • Connect to your network. Use the 16-digit network ID to connect your machine to the network. First, make sure the service is running by executing sudo zerotier-one. Then, in another terminal, run sudo zerotier-cli join [network ID].
  • Find your local IP address. Run ifconfig and write down the address that looks like 192.168.x.x. This is what your friends are going to use to enter your TF2 server.

3) Starting your game

  • Let your friends connect to your ZeroTier network. Make sure they install the program, and connect to your server in the same way you did. (The website also provides instructions for Windows and MacOS, just in case your friends are less than enlightened.) If the server is private, don't forget to approve new connections in the network settings.
  • Open TF2 and enable the developer console. You do this by going to Settings > Keyboard > Advanced > Enable Developer Console.
  • Create a TF2 server. The easiest way is to simply click Create a server in the main menu. Pick your map and tinker with the settings if you wish.
  • Let your friends connect by having them type the following line in the console: connect [IP]:27015, where [IP] is your local IP address that you found earlier. 27015 is the standard port through which they connect. They should be connected to your server as soon as they press enter.

4) Managing your game

  • Allow people to get onto the same team. My friends and I like to play in one team against bots. The game normally doesn't allow you to do that, however, because it automatically balances the numbers of players in each team. To disable this setting, type mp_teams_unbalance_limit 10 in the console, where 10 is just an arbitrarily high number that stands for the maximum allowable difference in number of players between teams.
  • Spawn some bots. First, set the bot difficulty with the command tf_bot_difficulty #. Change # to 0 (easy), 1, 2 or 3 (hard). Then, spawn your bots with tf_bot_add #, where # is the number of bots you want to create. You can specify their team colour and class if you want, in which case you can look here for more in-depth information.
  • Change maps with the command changelevel [mapname]. See here for a list of maps that support bots.
  • Restart your game with mp_restartgame_immediate 1. Useful if the game already started while you had to wait for people to join your server.

That's it!

There's a lot of stuff that I haven't figured out yet (like how to manage map rotation), but as a basic procedure, I think this works pretty well. Any tips, corrections and feedback are greatly appreciated!

Fullscreen on mac not working?

Hello there, I've recently met a problem with wine stable on my mac.

Usually, when I try with other games, the fullscreen option is visible and clickable. However, yesterday I was trying to boot up Umineko on my mac, and I found that the fullscreen option is unavailable. I've tried changing the display settings to HD on the configurations and unchecked the 'emulate a virtual desktop', but it still doesn't work. My mac is on Mojave 10.14.6.

Does anyone have any alternatives/solutions to this? Any help is appreciated, thank you!

Passing a GPU through VM

So I'm planning on switching to Linux. Gaming would work great for most games, however there's a couple that have that easyanicheat bs. For this I would need to use a VM and with not-so-great hardware, I'd like to have the least amount of performance loss possible. I know I can do this with passing through a graphics card however I'd like to still have the graphics card available for games in Linux. (Not at the same time, of course) What's a way I could do this easy after setup and not having to reboot each time I want to switch it? I was planning on using VirtualBox, however I'll take any suggestions for something better. Thanks!

Drivers for Ubuntu (ppa)

Installed Ubuntu on my laptop with a 2080 and i did:

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

when i go to software ad updates it shows unknown for device. then it list nvidia 435 (proprietary), nvidia 440 (open source), and xorg.

also when i turn on the laptop grub makes my screen go black with lines unless i immediately press E and type nomodeset. is there no way to have it automatically do that? kind of annoying to have to boot several times.

App wants to re-install; not appearing

I installed a game using Winebottler. The game is being run through DosBox, and the entire installation goes fine. However, when I go to run the game (by double-clicking the game's icon in my MAC OS finder), it wants to re-install.

Thing is, the Setup Wizard tells me that the game is already installed, and asks me if I want to overwrite. I can see the game in the emulated Windows directory, but it's not appearing in my MacOS directory.

Any ideas what might be happening?

Help with the Sims 3 on Steam (Manjaro)

I'm running Steam on Manjaro, and trying to run the Sims 3 under Proton 5.0-5. Whenever I launch it, the game launcher comes up, but all of the buttons are black and it closes after about five seconds. I've re-downloaded the game, tried running it with previous versions of Proton, and the same thing happens. If I try to use Steam Linux Runtime, it just refuses to run outright. Trying to run it directly under Wine or Lutris doesn't work, either. Any material I could find online say it will just work out of the box. Anything else I can do to get it to work?

Mapping unused mouse buttons to multiple clicks of other buttons

Hi all! I have a gaming mouse which has 5 buttons, 2 of which I never use (located near the thumb). I though it would be nice to use them as triggers (multiple clicks) for the usual left/right buttons, but I haven't been able to figure out how.

I did find out that these extra buttons are assigned numbers 8 and 9 using xev, and I could probably set up some script to say, repeat 100 clicks if I press the 8 button using xmodmap or similar, but the trick would be to start this trigger on ButtonPress and stop on ButtonRelease.

Anybody has ideas or experience on how to achieve this?

Nvidia optimus: runs with primusrun but crashes with nvidia-xrun

I'm trying to run Spyro Reignited Trilogy on steam in my computer with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M. I got it to run with very poor performance using primusrun, as usual, but when running it with nvidia-xrun, it crashes the x server. Does anyone have an idea of what this means and what I can do to get it running?

I usually run all games with nvidia-xrun because performance is incredibly better than primusrun, and this is the first time I find this situation where a game works according to the reports of others but not here, and also the first time I find a game that runs on primusrun and not with nvidia-xrun.

I appreciate any help!

Playing AoE2 HD on Mac, full guide from scratch

Hey guys,

I've seen a few people having trouble with it and helped some on another thread so I figured, why not write a full guide? Some steps might be useless for some but yeah I might as well be exhaustive.

Please note that first of all, before starting, you will have to pay 20$/ to buy AoE2 HD on your normal Steam for Mac. This is a kinda legal version of playing, you won't have it for free here.

Here we go.

__

CHAPTER 1 Installing PlayOnMac

  1. Download PlayOnMac installer www.playonmac.com
  2. Install PlayOnMac and try to open it.
  3. IF ok when you try to open it, skip to chapter 2. If you have a problem because PlayOnMac is an unidentified developer, follow the next steps.
  4. Stop trying and launch your terminal (alt+space to open spotlight, search terminal). We need to enable those unidentified devs
  5. In your terminal write sudo spctl --master-disable
  6. It will ask for your admin password, enter it (it's the one that unlocks your Mac when you start it). Nothing will appear when you write, it's normal. Just write the password and press enter.
  7. Once it's done you can go to System Preferences then Security
  8. In the general tab at the bottom you will have "Authorize apps dowloaded from..." you will now have a 3rd option that's normally hidden: "Everywhere". Select that. (You might need to unlock options first by clicking on the padlock and entering your password)
  9. Close everything.
  10. Open Finder -> Apps.
  11. On PlayOnMac do CTRL + click then open.
  12. It will verify it (might take a moment) and then open just fine. Congrat's yo'ure done with chapter &.
  13. You might want to lock your Mac security settings and hide the 3rd option again, as you wish. If you do well go back to your terminal and type this: sudo spctl --master-enable

CHAPTER 2 Installing and launching Steam

  1. Open PlayOnMac
  2. Click on the big + button to Install
  3. Search for Steam
  4. Select Steam (the one with the Steam icon) and click Install
  5. It might ask how much memory does your graphics board have... well chose what you have. And if you don't know go to top left corner -> "about this mac", you'll have your answer in the firs tab.
  6. You should now have Steam installed.
  7. Before launching it click on Steam and then Configure.
  8. In the window that pops, look for "wine version" and check if you have wine 3.17. If you do, good. If you don't search it on the left list and put it on the right list. Go back.
  9. In the same Configure window you should have a blank space for "Arguments". Steam had an update that fked Steam on PlayOnMac recently, so to be able to play copy paste the following code stuff: wine steam.exe -no-browser +open steam://open/minigameslist
  10. You can now launch Steam! It will probably do an update that will take some time. Sometimes after updates you'll have a bug window. It's ok just click on cancel and it will launch anyway.
  11. Enter your login and password for the account on which you bought AoE 2 HD.
  12. Yaayyy almost there, it should be open and you should see AoE2 HD. We're not done tho. Go to Chapter 3.

CHAPTER 3 Launching AoE2 HD

  1. Install AoE2 HD.
  2. Once fully installed, press ctrl and click on AoE2 HD.
  3. Click on properties
  4. Go to the "Local files" tab
  5. Click on "Browse local files"
  6. A windows 95 looking window will open.
  7. There you have two .exe files. One named "Launcher.exe", and another named "AoK HD.exe".
  8. Rename "Launcher.exe" to "Launcher2.exe"
  9. Then rename "AoK HD.exe" to "Launcher.exe"
  10. Close the windows, you're now ready to play!!
  11. Launch AoE2 HD. It might do some subscription validation stuff. If it goes through normally then well done, you are ready to play!!
  12. If not, press ctrl+c aaaand well done, you are ready to play!!

CHAPTER 4 Enjoy the wololoooo

There you go. I hope this helped you. If you're having trouble you can ask me and I'll try to help you, but this should be enough for 90% of cases.

Cheers!

How's your experience with Windows-only games that aren't officially released (fangames or old indie games basically)?

Proton and Lutris seem to cover commercially released games very well, but I'm kinda curious about games that are too obscure to be covered by these, like old fangames and indie games.

Lutris Sims 4 is not starting

Hello guys,

I've tried the last few days many solutions how to install and start Sims 4 for my little sister on lutris. By the way is undetected the soundcard and needed two days to fix it but that's another story.

I did every step which is described in the link below. Lutris is starting, Origin is installed and is starting, Sims 4 is installed but it is not starting. I already deactived the Origin-Ingame Launcher. I dont get any error message when starting. Just the starting button is actived but the games dont start.

Thanks for your help!

Strange performance differences with Valve Index on Linux and Windows (with advanced frame graphs)

I recently got a new system with a Ryzen 9 3900X, an RTX 2080 Ti and a Valve Index, intending to use it on Linux. Unfortunately, performance is way worse on Linux despite the systems performing similarly in a normal benchmark. First off, Unigine Superposition scores on Linux v Windows. Unfortunately, it's borked with the official Proton (textures missing) or Proton-GE (horribly low framerate) so only the OpenGL scores are really interesting.

Base system Linux: Up-to-date Fedora 31
Base system Windows: Up-to-date Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC N

Linux graphics driver: 440.62
Windows graphics driver: 445.75

System Setting Detail Score Avg FPS Min FPS
Linux High Compositor 13456 100 69
Linux High No Compositor 15739 118 74
Windows High DirectX 18948 142 101
Windows High OpenGL 16174 121 84
Linux Extreme Compositor 6420 48 36
Linux Extreme No Compositor 7447 56 43
Windows Extreme DirectX 8593 64 50
Windows Extreme OpenGL 7350 55 45

However, in VR the difference is startling - especially the way the graphs look.

Windows SteamVR: 1.10.32
Linux SteamVR: 1.11.5 beta

All graphs taken with 200% render scale and default settings unless indicated otherwise.

Linux, Unigine, VR Optimum: https://i.imgur.com/M7MPO0Q.png?1
Windows, Unigine, VR Optimum, DirectX: https://i.imgur.com/L5np2Zw.jpg?1
Windows, Unigine, VR Optimum, OpenGL: https://i.imgur.com/YHIQAGk.jpg?1

It's even more extreme in Vivecraft. I directly copied the MultiMC folder, so everything is exactly the same. This is walking around in explored territory after the game has settled down a bit. (Otherwise, it stutters badly on both systems.) I know Vivecraft wants you to use their internal supersampling setting instead of the Steam one but doing so crashes it on Linux and it's just about having a direct comparison.

This is with render distance 8, fancy graphics, DokuCraft textures, DocteurDread shaders on Low with God Rays and Lens Flares disabled. Otherwise default.

Windows, OpenGL: https://i.imgur.com/Q27FJs2.png?1
Linux, no legacy reprojection: https://i.imgur.com/YLBr7qp.png?1
Linux, legacy reprojection: https://i.imgur.com/CTY9CqN.png?1

Vivecraft uses OpenGL on both systems.

Can someone explain if these very different-looking graphs are even indicative of an issue or if they come down to differences in how graphics are rendered in general? It's not just that they look different, VR games are almost unplayable on Linux especially if you have a direct comparison - everything just feels much, much more fluent and natural on Windows.

What are other variables I may have missed here that I could try changing?

(I'll update with Superhot shortly as that, too, runs horrible on Linux and perfectly well on Windows. Changing legacy reprojection doesn't fix it. Just have to figure out how to transfer my save.)

Do we think Google Stadia being driven by Linux will have any meaningful effect on the Linux gaming eco system?

I firmly believe that Linux gaming can only really be a thing if big companies get onboard and find a way to make a profit. With Stadia being driven by Linux it's my understanding that the supported games (of which there are currently quite few) should have full Linux support.

What impact, if any, do people here think Stadia will have in this regard?

Wine registry key to "hide wine version from applications"

Hi! I wanted to ask if anybody knows how to add a registry key to "hide wine version from applications" while using wine-stable; I know that the option is clickable in wine-staging's winecfg, but anything above wine 5.0 is jerky in older machines (e.g. my 2013 ThinkPad), hence the question.

This option is currently required to run Blizzard's Battle.net app to play StarCraft in Linux at last, and it works wonders, but I get constant audio & video micropauses with wine-staging 5.1 and beyond.

My OS is Ubuntu 18.04 / elementaryOS 5.1.2, kernel 5.3, NVidia proprietary driver nvidia-340.

Limit FPS in wine/proton?

I'm trying to do a ttw playthrough of Fallout New Vegas and I've managed to get everything to work but for some reason the frame rate is capped at 144 fps (my monitor refresh speed) instead of the 60 that it's supposed to be and I can't seem to fix it with the game's ini files, is there any way to limit it in wine/proton or am I stuck with the physics engine running twice as fast as it should?

[Help] AMD & Origin

I've spent a few hours today trying to play The Sims 4. I have Origin installed and the game downloaded, but nothing happens when I hit 'Play.'

My setup - at least the important parts... Xubuntu 18.04 and an AMD Radeon. I'm using Lutris and followed this guide. Along the way to getting where I am, I updated my graphics drivers and .NET framework. Not sure what's missing.

Thanks in advance for your help! Let me know if you need more details.

Since I want to play csgo but dont have a good pc I searched for ways to boost performance and came across libstrangle. I tried downloading it just how it was written in the gitlab readme file, but when I try to execute the command in the terminal, it says that this command doesn't exist. I am asking for help that a beginner could understand. I use lubuntu(Incase it matters)

Running .exe opens wine menu instead

Hi,

I am trying to run a windoww application on Mac Catalina. When I double click the app even from the package content, it opens wineskin menu instead of opening the app. If I go to "Advanced" tab, I can see that the .exe is selected. If I do test run, it does not show me the logs.

P.S. Wineskin was included with the application I installed. So i did not have it preinstalled.

Wanting to give Linux another shot but first I have some questions

How is FreeSync coming along on Linux?

Does Linux suffer from the same issue as Windows 10 where multimonitor setups can experience microstuttering if Hardware accelerated content is playing on another monitor? ( https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/f57tk4/dwm_multiple_monitors_with_different_refresh_rate/ )

Lastly but most importantly. I always hear about these things called ACO... RADV... Mesa.. etc. How do I know which one to use in which scenarios?

Making games run faster on linux?

Using Linux on a chromebook (only computer I have access to at the moment). I got this game called LISA: The Painful RPG. When I opened it up, all the text was unreadable because letters and words were cropped out for one reason or another, and the game itself ran so slow that I had to go to the menu every few seconds to see what I was doing. Is there anyway to improve the games performance? I've tried clearing up space on my device, but it just didn't do anything.

Do you think we'll be able to run Valorant?

It's an upcoming FPS game by Riot. It's a fusion of CSGO and overwatch, with CSGO's simplicity and tactics and Overwatch's abilities and the heroes system. I don't know if it runs with either Easy Anti Cheat or DX12, because if it does, I don't think it can start on Linux.

Since the required specs are pretty low (intel core 2 duo and an HD 3000, so pretty low) I think it won't run on DX12, since the HD 3000 can't even run dx11 at all. But idk, what do you guys think?

I'm a pretty decent CS player, I've played it for a long while and I'd like to try something similar, yet so different and this looks really promising. You can get into the closed beta if you watch certain twitch channels (you can get drops). This is the link https://beta.playvalorant.com/

Help playing old game on wine (EZeroDivide error)

When I run the game I get a EZeroDivide error.

Thrustmaster TWCS in wine not showing all axes

Evening fellow wine gamers.

My wife bought me a HOTAS set up with a Thrustmaster TWCS throttle and a Thrustmaster T.16000M. I've been using them to play Star Citizen via Lutris, and have been loving it. I'm super looking forward to Squadron 42 sometime over the next 10 years (lol).

My problem is, though, that not all of the axes in the TWCS are present in Star Citizen. The 'rotary antenna' and the highest hat don't seem to show up in game. They are mapped to axes 7,8, and 9, and I suspect that anything past the first six axes are not making it to Star Citizen. (Nothing seems to trigger axis 6, I think it belongs to the optional rudders which I don't have). The T.16000M doesn't have any issues, but all of its axes are 0-5.

All axes report correctly in jstest and X-Plane 11, and when using either joydev or evdev based python programs that I scraped off of stack exchange (or wherever). I think the problem is in wine or DirectInput. Google has unfortunately been of no help in this case.

Has anyone heard of this, and know if there's a work around or configuration change I can make? I'd like to be able to use these axes if possible.

Thanks, and stay awesome fellow penguin people!

edit: words of out order.

PSA: How to Opt into the Proton 5.0-6 RC

It's a little different that what we're used to.

Ordinarily you would select your proton version in the Steam settings, but for the new 5.0-6 RC, you need to find the Proton tool in your library (you might have to change your library filter settings) and opt into the "next - " beta branch on the BETAS tab.

Trying to wrap my mind around how Steam handles shader caches.

From all that I've read on the subject, it seems like I just shouldn't really need to worry about it. I see a lot of different bits of information and advice on how to best deal with shader-compile stutter in games that use dxvk/proton. Am I wrong in assuming that for the most part, its just a fact of life and I should just deal with it until the cache is built?

I'm specifically referring to how Steam handles all of this. I am using an Nvidia GPU for now, and it appears that Steam utilizes dxvk's state cache alongside the nvidia GL cache and places them both in the game's respective folders (as opposed to "$HOME/.nv/GLCache").

In other words, do I even need to bother with using __GL_SHADER_DISK_CACHE_PATH=/path/to/location as a launch option since Steam appears to handle all of that for me?

What about Steam's shader precaching feature? Isn't the idea behind that to distribute precompiled shaders in order to prevent or at least reduce stuttering in the first place?

Its a lot of information and I'm pretty new at this, just trying to narrow down what I should try to focus on when tinkering with non-native games.

What was Linux gaming like before DXVK?

What was Linux gaming before, like just in general.

What package was used before DXVK was made?

Was their alot of performance problem?

Was it even possible to play online games in the olden days?

And lastly, how better has Linux gaming been since the release of DXVK?

A thought that's been on my head for the past couple of weeks. I've been using Linux (debian 10) for the past couple of months now, it works great for playing offline games, but most online games that I want to play doesn't support linux, like Rust and PUBG. Which sucks alot, cause Linux is a great OS but most online games doesn't work with Linux. Sorry for bad English, it is my main language I'm just bad at writing

Am I the only one who really is not a big fan of Proton?

There's very few cases I find where it works even on games which are rated platinum. Which I can run on my personal Wine prefix just fine. Despite tinkering with it over and over again. There's been a few fringe cases where it can run stuff my prefix cannot, but my experience with Proton has been overwhelmingly negative. I find it quite slow, to be lacking the very basics, IE: Fonts.

Don't get me wrong, it's not a horrible tool. But it doesn't work nearly as well as hyped up to. And I often find it easier to avoid using it all together, over using it. (Not to mention faster.) For a little more information, I use Manjaro, if that has anything to do with it.

Edit: Also to add to this, it's frustrating when you see a game rated as platinum, and have it not work for you, and be not be able to find information anywhere.

PS4 controller will not connect to Steam

So a few days ago I made a post about how my DS4 was not getting recognized by steam and I was using a USB wire to connect it to my PC.

Since then, I got a Bluetooth dongle for my PC so I could connect it that way. My PC is able to connect to my PC via Bluetooth however Steam sill does not recognize it in the general controller settings.

I have installed

python-pip

python-dev

ds4drv

However, when i run ds4drv it finds the controller but gives me this:

Unable to connect to detected device: Failed to set operational mode: [Errno 107] Transport endpoint is not connected

I am not really sure where to go from here. I am still pretty new to Linux (Ubuntu 19.10)

Strange mouse input lag in CS:GO under XFCE

Hi everyone, I had mouse input lag when I was playing CS:GO under XFCE and I've found sollution. Hope it will help someone. Everything you need, is to disable compositing while playing. The best way to do this is to add xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/use_compositing -s false; %command%; xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/use_compositing -s true into steam game launch params. * If you use gamemode, simply add gamemoderun before %command% * If you use custom launch params e.g. -novid, add them after %command%

Thanks to u/rage_311 for his helpful comment. I hope this post saved your time.

Overwatch: mouse issues while playing using Crossover

Hello there.
Recently when I try to play Overwatch on my Linux machine (I installed it via Crossover software), after first death/character change on my screen appears mouse cursor and I cannot aim. When I move the mouse, the game instead of moving a crosshair around moves cursor all over the screen while my character stares into one point.
I tried setting different wine options (Linux managing wine windows, "Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows" and "Emulate a virtual desktop") and in-game settings (resolution, fullscreen vs borderless window, aspect ratio, which monitor game should use etc).
Any suggestion what else could I try to fix this issue?

Yakuza 0 won't run with any DXVK version, except Manual

It's weird, cause it says: Default: 1.6, but when i choose 1.6 or any other version the game won't run at all. And additional to that, it runs in 20 fps on low, like it's not using GPU.

AC Odyssey higher average fps in dxvk than windows

I've run into a confusing schenario here. I was observing higher framerates in dxvk than in windows in assassin's creed odyssey so I ran the benchmark a few times: https://imgur.com/a/JFGTzMH
I added an extra run with volumetric clouds set to high and rest at ultra, as this is the settings I use to actually play the game.
Haven't really seen any nvidia benchmarks on this game, so could anyone confirm these findings? u/FlightlessMango 's benches use AMD cards, but apart from that I'm not aware of any other differences, even my cpu is exactly the same, i7 8700k@4.7ghz locked.

Note: The frametime spikes might be due to the compositor since the one I'm currently using can't be manually disabled and some games fail to disable it.

Full specs:
linux 5.6.2.5 tkg kernel with pds scheduler,
Proton 5.4 GE-3

Mac OS X 10.7.5 - Black screen on Steam

Hi guys. I have a MacBook Pro of a lot of years ago that can not be updated nowadays, the last version available is 10.7.5 as written in title.

I have followed this guide: How to run Steam on Older Macs

The problem is that, when Steam is installed, all I get is the normal Steam hub (Shop, Library Community, MyUserName), I can click on those but nothing shows, I only get a black screen.

What am I doing wrong? Please help!

Installing Games from Epic Game Store

Could anyone provide a general guide for best settings when installing Epic Game Store Games in Lutris manually (without a Lutris install script). I'm not really interested in supporting Epic but they do tend to throw up a lot of quality games for free and it would be great if we could get as many as possible running relatively easily.

Phoenix point working on Linux?

Hi!

So the devs removed the Linux support for this game which is sad since I'm getting bored to Xcom 2 long war and was looking forward of this.

But I read that Lutris could run this game from Epic game store? Does anyone have actual experience running this game with Lutris in the recent times?

The question is not meant as an offense against Yorha2B or Wine, you guys seriously do amazing job. Just curiosity.

I mean, there's less incentive for publisher to port the game if it already works with near-native performance. Or am I missing something?

Quadro P1000 GPU compatibility with Vulkan

I'm a total beginner in linux gaming, for a long time I've stucked with using steam and playing only games that have native compatibility. I decided to try Lutris because Epic Games Store was giving away World War Z for free (Still is until april 4th) and I didn't want to miss on that.

My problem is that I can't get DXVK to work with the game when using my dedicated GPU, if I don't use it the game runs but its very laggy to the point is barely playable, I'm using a laptop that has a Quadro P1000 (mobile) dedicated GPU and an integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 GPU. DXVK works only if I use the intel GPU.

Im pretty sure that lutris and Vulkan are installed correctly because everything works as long as I'm using my integrated GPU (Tested it by using vulkaninfo and vkcube commands and by running the game). It's only when I'm using the Quadro GPU that vulkan (and DXVK) doesn't work, I'm wondering if it's an unsolvable compatibility issue or if there's something I can do to fix it.

BTW I'm on a laptop running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, I'm also not a native english speaker so if my writing is a little weird I apologize

Wine running into Esync error with Halo SPV3.2 installer

Hey there,

Long time follower of this program but first time serious user,

Recently I've been using Wine to install Windows games on my mac. I found a nice port of Halo's campaign SPV3 courtesy of the porting team (https://portingteam.com/files/file/8348-halo-ce-spv3/ need to enable databases in account settings to view). However this port is out of date, version 3.1.6 is succeeded but V3.2.

I'm running the new versions installer in the wineskin with the proper .net framework but I keep getting an error. One part of the message repeats leading me to believe it is the problem. fixme:esync:do_esync eventfd not supported on this platform.

I am quite a noob at wine so I'm not sure if this is the problem or what it is related to. If need be I can post the whole log for clarification.

I have posted this to the SPV3 subreddit but I figured ya'll might be more knowledgeable at troubleshooting or pointing me in the right direction.

Any help is appreciated.

Risk of Rain 2 Help?

I'm attempting to play RoR2 on Linux Mint 19 with Steam, but it is not working. It either gets nearly launched and then crashes, or gets nearly launched, the progress bar window disappears, and Steam says it's running but it's not. I have an AMD Radeon R7 260x, and have made sure that I have the latest linux driver for that graphics card. I've reinstalled the game, verified the files, rebooted my computer, and tried all available versions of proton. The game has not worked at any point. I tried running the executable with Wine, and it nearly launched, then crashed, and returned a massive error. Any suggestions on how to get RoR2 to work?

Windows 10 or Linux (Mint) for a gaming PC?

I will sure want to ditch Windows, but as a gamer I just cant since most games are native to Windows. I got a student laptop which Ill install Linux into for sure after I end my shitty Access course (this is really useless). But I got another computer which mostly is for gaming. Im not really into dual-booting and fingering my F12 key until it decides to do as I say... The question is, Windows 10 or Linux for gaming only?

DOOM Eternal on AMD's GPUs.

Hello everyone.So, I wanted to play DOOM Eternal on Linux, but I couldn't get it to run and informations, tips & tricks and various guides to be able to run it are scattered around the internet. Since I finally got it to run at ~9FPS and then I got it to run properly at almost constant ~60FPS, I wanted to share with You my all-in-one guide for this game. Granted, steps mentioned here might differ, based on what hardware & distribution You're using, but I think that, even if it won't help You, then maybe at least it will give You some hints as to why it's not working/not running at good FPS.

To start this of, this is my hardware running fully updated openSUSE Tumbleweed:Ryzen 5 3500UVega 8 iGPU8GBs RAM DDR4 (2x4)512 NVMe SSD

First, the game requires Vulkan features, that are currently not available on most (all?) Linux distributions. They are being distributed via vulkan-loader, vulkan-icd-loader or similar package name. On openSUSE it's libvulkan1. The most recent version in Tumbleweed is 1.2-133, but this game requires 1.2-135. To get it installed on openSUSE You need to add an additional repo, like this one: https://software.opensuse.org/download/package?package=libvulkan1&project=home%3AAkaricchiYou can add it and install the package as simply as:zypper addrepo https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:Akaricchi/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/home:Akaricchi.repozypper refreshzypper install libvulkan1

Second, You need Vulkan components of proprietary AMDGPU-PRO drivers. Since on openSUSE installing AMDGPU-PRO drivers is only supported on openSUSE Leap and not Tumbleweed, the installation script provided by AMD will fail, when You will want to install everything. But luckily You don't need the whole thing, only the Vulkan parts of it. Do it like this:

  1. Download the drivers from here: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-amdgpu-unified-linux. In my case, I need to get the ones for SLED/SLES 15 SP1.
  2. Unpack them and inside You will find folders like doc, repodata and RPMS/DEBS, depending on what Your distibution is. There will also be two scripts amdgpu-install and amdgpu-pro-install.
  3. Run amdgpu-pro-install script and when Your package manager will ask You to install some packages, abort the installation with ^C (Ctrl + C). The only thing You really need from the script is that it will add a local repository to Your system.
  4. Now, You need to manually install required packages from that repo. In my case those are:amdgpu-core, amdgpu-pro-core & vulkan-amdgpu-pro.

Third, for now the game requires a custom Proton build, like the ones from Glorious Eggroll. To get it installed, You can do it manually https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/proton-ge-custom#installation or use this script https://github.com/flubberding/ProtonUpdater. You can do it like this:wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/flubberding/ProtonUpdater/master/cproton.shsudo chmod a+x cproton.sh./cproton.sh

Then run or restart Steam (if You use the script, then it will ask You if You want to restart Steam) and select this custom Proton build in DOOM Eternal's properties settings.

Fourth, the launch options. You have to add certain launch options to get the game up and running.Those are: RADV_PERFTEST=llvm %command% +in_terminal 1 +com_skipIntroVideo 1 +com_skipKeyPressOnLoadScreens 1 +com_skipSignInManager 1. You need to use RADV_PERFTEST=llvm, because the game currently doesn't work with Valve's ACO. Some people are recommending to also use PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1, but I didn't needed it. These commands will allow You to run the game and on my hardware I was getting wonderful ~9FPS (everything on Low or Off, screen res 960x540). This is because the AMDGPU driver Vulkan components are currently lacking as compared to those from their AMDGPU-PRO counterpart. BUT if You have read and followed the second step of this guide, You should have these components already installed. Now the only thing You need to do, is to point the game to these files. As I have learned from here: https://github.com/Tk-Glitch/PKGBUILDS/tree/master/amdgpu-pro-vulkan-only You can do it by adding this into the game's Steam launch options: VK_ICD_FILENAMES=/opt/amdgpu-pro/etc/vulkan/icd.d/amd_icd64.json.

After all this You should be able to run the game with a decent performance. On my hardware I was getting ~40FPS (everything on Low or Off, screen res 960x540). If You want to improve Your performance then You can do some stuff. After applying those tweaks game's performance went from ~40 to almost constant ~60FPS. On the Linux side You can use Feral's gamemode. On openSUSE Tumbleweed installing it is as simple as: zypper install gamemoded libgamemode0 lbgamemode0-32bit libgamemodeauto0 libgamemodeauto0-32bit. After that just add the gamemoderun to game's Steam launch options. As I learned from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIeMGobEFzA on the game's side You can create a simple text file with custom game options:

r_decalLifetimeMultiplier 0r_antialiasing 0r_lightDistanceFadeMultiplier 0r_shadowAtlasWidth 8

Save it as lowspec.txt or something and put it in the ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/DOOMEternal/base folder. After that, when You will run the game, press ~ and run this command: exec lowspec.txt. It should improve Your game's performance a bit.

I HOPE IT WILL HELP SOMEONE WITH THIS GAME.THANK YOU FOR READING.YOU'RE ALL TRULY WONDERFUL.HAVE A GOOD ONE.

PSA: Nvidia Beta Vulkan Driver 440.66.07 needs a patch to compile against Kernel 5.6.x

I decided to test out the new Nvidia beta driver (440.66.77), but I ran into problems compiling the kernel module. Turns out if you're on Kernel 5.6.x the Nvidia module code needs a patch to compile.

I found this very helpful information, including a patch you can download. The patch was originally created for an earlier version of the driver, but people reported that it was working with the beta driver.

https://gitlab.com/snippets/1945940

Note: I did not create this patch! Special thanks to Isaak I. Aleksandrov

I'm now running the beta driver on Fedora 32 beta (Kernel 5.6) and things are working great.

I've definitely noticed some nice performance improvements with VR as well!

It might be a while before the official version comes out *and* it hits upstream repos, so hopefully this helps some folks wanting to try out the new beta driver.

A big thanks to everyone who made Linux gaming what it is today

Inspired by the PCGamer.com article posted here, I'd like to do a personal shout-out to everyone who has made gaming on my OS of choice better. Not that my opinion matters more than others, but I think some articles don't mention some very important key figures. I won't also get everyone (that'd be too many) but still.

First off, I'd like to thank all the studios who've always supported Linux as a first class citizen when most people associated Linux with servers. Almost ironical today, I can still install and run UT2k4 on my machines today and play with almost 0 issues (I think I needed to change a library) and this might even be true for UT99. So while nowadays Epic and Linux are not the biggest love story, even back then some companies did the right thing, especially id who released the source code to their earlier games. S2 Games was also a studio whose Heroes of Newerth I only bought because they offered top notch Linux support.

Also thanks to the porting studios. RIP Loki software (they also did the UT99 port IIRC). They did great groundwork and proved Linux was a usable gaming platform.

Valve who tried to establish Linux more, though I'm not sure their actions were always 100% focused. Still, Steam on Linux has brought the Linux platform into the spotlight and led to a lot of optimizations, even by Valve themselves. While their big project - Steam Machines - has failed, they continue to push Linux performance beyond current limits, e.g. with the ACO compiler.

The WINE project, though it's not gaming only. Without it, I'd still need to boot Windows to do my taxes.

The mesa project.

AMD who not only opened up their documentation, but also basically designed Vulkan and turned it into an open spec. I consider the latter one of the cornerstones of modern gaming under Linux, especially non-native.

Special thanks I want to send out to doitsujin. While others were still wondering what could be done with Vulkan, he just went and did what a lot of people didn't even consider possible: a user-level translation layer between two completely different graphics APIs that has a very low performance overhead. While today sponsored by Valve, he did it just by himself and released it to the public for everyone to benefit. You are a hero and a legend.

Joshie, building upon the DXVK work so I can enjoy my old Direct3D 9 games

And of course everyone I forgot.

Ways of improving inputlag and latency in linux for games (help!)

Ok, so my last topic about this was deleted because windows is a better system for day to day use... (who would imagined...)

The thing is: Linux is behind windows when games are the main usage. Frame delivery is at least 1 frame behind. Sound is at least 3 from a perpective of a already late video frame.

The objetive here is: let's improve this! What can be done from a user perpective? The goal is: Linux parity with Windows when gaming.

So this happens as I install my first winepak. I've added the winepak repository earlier and it was no issues, I think something else must be wrong.

I'm not sure what all of this means, but I'd guess flatpak can't find signatures for certain winepak runtimes and therefore can't verify their authenticity. I don't know where to start solving this, I don't really want to disable the verification and there's not a lot of stuff about this on the internet.

[Giveaway][SteamCodes] Hiveswap: act 1 ; Hacknet

Hello, first of all, I'm not sure if this is the right place for this. If not, please let me know where should I post this.

I bought yesterday a Humble Bundle pack although I had already some of the games and have still those two games' codes. If anyone wants them I can PM them the link to add them to their steam account. They are both native games under linux.

Best regards.

A replacement

I have 2 keyboard and no controller, so being a cheap guy i am, i try to find workaround to play local multiplayer using two keyboard, and with the help of a guy in steam, i found 2 application that help me play quite a small of multiplayer game that would be otherwise impossible (With that being said, game that require a second joystick is still impossible, as using a second mouse is basically impossible)

I have use JoyToKey to emulate the keyboard into a controller, then x360ce to emulate the controller into xbox360 controller for game that dont accept some foreign controller driver.

Changing to linux, im having a little rough time. Any software that can complete the same task as this? Emulating a keyboard into a controller, then changing that into xbox 360 controller.

The mouse keeps escaping wc3 on wine (dual monitor setup)

Title says it all, I've been using sc2 on linux for years now and it's working flawlessly, even alt-tabbing to the second monitor there's almost no lag. However I've installed wc3 now (they changed the whole ui to be reforged like, even though I play with classic graphics and I don't even have reforged) and this whole cursor problem has made the game literally unplayable for me. I know it used to work before with old versions of wc3 (like when I tried two years ago or so). Anybody has this problem?

I tried Fullscreen, windowed fullscreen, windowed, there's even an option in the menu that says "confine mouse cursor" and that not seem to do anything whatsoever. The mouse will just go to the edge (between the two monitors let's say) and "escape" through to the other monitor, and then I'll accidently do a click and it lags the game out, coming back takes 10-15 seconds and the mouse is never trapped inside.

Any help would be appreciated. I've been trying to stop using Windows for a few months (I've been able to never have to boot once in 5 months or so) but I really want to play this game and this has been bugging me so much. Ideally I wouldn't have to disable the second monitor also... Thanks!

Input lag and latency on games

Linux is an OS that is a bit far from being a system that commom users can use as Windows alternative. The whys can be found at google.com if you want to know more (Linux purists, please, this is a user perspective. Not a dev one ok? For commom users, Linux is pretty much too hard and inconvenient. I can give my motives for this if fits this topic at some point but they don't diverge from what you will find on internet about why Linux is far from being a serious system for daily use despite my desire of trash windows for good.)

That said, Linux is undeniable improving. Yet I find some problems that should be solved by now. Those are input lag and latency. They are much higher than windows and I think I found some of the culprits: The kernel (mainly because the scheduler), Xorg (yep, this must die ASAP) and window compositors (just why???). The 3 on top of each other causes even audio desync (somewhat behind the image). Some compositors for some weird reason drops the screen refresh rato to half... on a 1080ti...

Gamepad, besides the fact the majority don't have behavior parity with other systems, doen't seem to add to that. They're just anoying to make it work properly (I'm talking about DS4, SN30+ PRO and Xone bt controller. Incredible how mad these controllers are on Linux... Mainly the SN30. It's nuts...)

How you guys are improving the system latency and input lag to play games? And also fine tunning gamepad?

Please refrain from posting "it works in my computer" or "I don't have/see any problem". This reply is waste of time to everyone including those who post it.

How to install Roblox on Linux?

I wanted to run roblox on pop! os for my little brother. I'm showing him that linux>windows but I can't seem to find a way to install his favorite game.

I've searched this sub and other resources. Then, I found out that roblox doesn't work on wine since they added this anti-cheat feature and they see wine as a cheat program.

I'm really hoping there is a bypass to this or if people solved this. I searched it on AppDB and they rated it as garbage. Nothing works so far.

Now, I am asking for your help. How do we make this possible? How do we install Roblox on Linux. It's a matter of life and death. My 5 yo little brother needs to see how great linux gaming can be.

Please help me Linux community. You're my only hope.

[Guide] How to create a 32 bit prefix in Steam Play for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round: Core Fighters

The purpose of this guide is to illustrate how to set up the free game Dead or Alive 5 Last Round: Core Fighters in Steam Play. It also serves as a template on how to create a 32 bit prefix in Proton.

You need to set launch option PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command% in Steam to launch the game. You may experience some minor slowdown after the first few hours of gaming due to shader compilation.

For the cutscenes to work you will need to create a 32 bit Proton prefix.

Install Wine, cabextract and cURL. Once you are done they are not needed anymore. You may also need to install 32 bit drivers for your graphics adapter.

Launch the game at least once.

Issue the following command and modify the path according to the Proton version you are using:

$ ln -sf ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Proton\ 5.0/dist/lib/wine/dxvk/*.dll ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Dead\ or\ Alive\ 5\ Last\ Round/

$ cd ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/311730/

You need the latest revision of Winetricks to install wmp10. Not needed with the upcoming final release:

$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks

$ chmod +x winetricks

Note the final dot:

$ mv pfx/drive_c/Program\ Files\ (x86)/Steam/ .

$ rm -R pfx

Don't install Wine Mono and Wine Gecko and press OK to close the dialog:

$ WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/311730/pfx WINEARCH=win32 winecfg

Confirm everything in the dialogs and install wizard and close Windows Media Player. The install order of the packages matters. For example if you install wmp10 before qasf you will end up with a non working prefix:

$ WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/311730/pfx ./winetricks qasf wmp10 wmv9vcm quartz devenum

$ mkdir pfx/drive_c/windows/syswow64

$ mv Steam pfx/drive_c/Program\ Files/

$ rm winetricks

By the way, it took me days to come up with this. It was a royal pain in the lower back.

Is anybody else excited for the new discrete Intel GPUs?

I've been gaming exclusively on Linux for the last 3+ years and it's super exciting to see what's possible now compared to what was possible back then.

The one thing I've always struggled with is GPU selection.

I'm currently running a Nvidia RTX 2070. Previously I was using an AMD RX580, and before that a Nvidia 1060. I really do like the fact that AMD GPUs don't require a proprietary driver, but I've definitely run into some nasty bugs with AMD hardware that caused me to switch back to Nvidia the last go around.

This is where I think Intel GPUs could be a game changer. We get open drivers with potentially more stability and better performance. Maybe this increased pressure might actually cause Nvidia to open up their current drivers a bit more?

I would love to switch away from Nvidia at this point, so I hope Intel shakes up the market.

At this point I'm going to wait to see what both Intel & AMD have to offer. I think it would be very unlikely that I go with a Nvidia card again.

What do you folks think?

Best GPU which wouldn't be bottlenecked by i7-870

I'm building a low-cost gaming PC for emulating Wii games at 1080p (with Dolphin on Linux). It will live beneath my TV and so needs to be slim (less than 6 inches thick). Given this requirement, my options seem to be:

  • Build my own PC in a slim case.

  • Buy a SFF prebuilt such as Dell Optiplex from a few years ago and a low profile card like GTX 1050-Ti.

  • Buy a "slim desktop" prebuilt with a riser card and a full size GPU.
    The fastest of this type seems to be Optiplex 980 with i7-870 CPU.

The last option is the most economical, but I want to get a sense for how limiting the i7-870 would be. Would it bottleneck an RX 470? RX 480? Both of these cards are faster than the GTX 1050-Ti LP, and cheaper on the used market, so if the CPU isn't a bottleneck then the build seems like a great value.

My TV is 1080p but I may one day upgrade to 4K. I understand CPUs are less of a bottleneck at higher resolutions; do you think i7-870 with RX 480 or RX 580 would do okay with 4K Wii emulation?

CS:GO's new Map "Anubis" crashes on Linux. You may get a competitive cooldown

Valve released a new CS:GO update recently, which added two new maps to Scrimmage: Chlorine and Anubis. The latter one does not load on Linux. At all. The game will just crash. As you will not be able to connect to the competitive match, you will get a cooldown.

You can test this by joining a "Practice with Bots" match on Anubis.

I just wanted to post this here, so no one get's an unnecessary competitive cooldown when queueing for this map.

Would you be fine with pure Proton/Wine gaming?

Would you be OK if game publishers never produced another AAA native Linux title, but instead focused on Proton/Wine compatibility? Maybe even go as far as to say that the Proton/Wine compatible version didn't come out till a couple months after the initial release?

Why or why not?

No Chat in LoL client

Hey,

up first, I am new to Linux/Ubuntu so I might need some more detailed explanations on stuff, sorry for that!

I installed LoL via

snap install wine-platform
snap install leagueoflegends --edge --devmode

and it works. The only problem is, that I do not see my friend list or chats in the client. In game the chat works. I can invite ppl. to games. However for my friends I am "offline". I searched for this issue and found one post where a restart of the game helped. I tried it a couple of times without any success.

Does anybody know how to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

State of Mind - a hidden gem now discounted on GOG

I haven't seen this game mentioned often yet, thought I might recommend it now that it's on sale -75% on GOG. I played it a few months ago and really enjoyed it. It's basically an interactive story, not too much choices, but in an interesting sci-fi setting. It's in 3rd person view in 3D, you play different characters and see their view on the story as it evolves. It worked flawless on my RX560 GPU under Debian Bullseye (Testing). I could play it from the start to the end with my 8BitDo SN30 Pro+ without any bugs. The whole story took me around 10 hours of play time. Definitely worth the price.

So I downloaded this game, World War Z, of Epic Games. I'm playing it through Lutris. So far so good!

Now, I'm using a VPN, and I would like to whitelist the Epic Games client and the World War Z game so I wouldn't lag in-game. Turning my VPN on and off everytime I play World War Z gets really annoying.

I've managed to whitelist Steam and Steam games because the directories are easily Google-able; but I'm having no luck looking for solutions for Epic Games.

Any Linux Epic Games users here?

Wow!. Linux Gaming has evolved so much.

So I've been using linux for work for about 4 years now and I love it. I could set it up exactly the way I want. But for games, I've always used windows. I mostly play online games like pubg and apex legends. But I also enjoy playing single player games and play them time to time. So to me it doesn't made any sense to try gaming on linux since if I've to keep using windows for playing games like pubg, so why not install all the games at one place.

But now I've decided to ditch those games because frankly they are quite addicting and I couldn't able to do any work. So I decided to wipe my windows partition and use linux for everything.

So I have Just cause 3 on steam which I bought on sale and installed it on my linux os. And to my surprise, it just ran flawlessly. I was getting about 100 fps on windows with everything maxed out on 1080p. And in linux, it hovers around 90 fps.

Next I tried skyrim and It ran flawlessly too.

Last time I tried playing any game on linux, I had to use playonlinux and it wasn't a good experience. The game didn't run well and it was a laggy mess. Some games just refused to even launch.

At last I would like to thank all the devs who made it happen. Now I can enjoy playing games on my favourite operating system.

Also convinced my designer friend to switch to linux too. XD

Looking for some Linux testers for an upcoming game on Steam

Hello everyone,

My name is Ben, I'm an indie game developer making small games with Unity on Steam. I'm about to release a game and I need few testers using Linux to test if it works smoothly.

I runned few Linux tests during the Alpha two weeks ago with the help of some Linux people from this subreddit but I would like to run more to be sure.

The test will not need a lot of time, I just need you to check:
- The game starts correctly from Steam.

- The puzzles work correctly without lag (you can move piece, complete a puzzle [28 pieces puzzles are very easy])

- Music is working

- When you leave and start again, the completed puzzles are still completed.

- Steam achievements are working as intend.

If you have time to help me please join the Discord and I will send you a private message. Any Linux OS is interesting for me to test: https://discord.gg/mGDe5Sy

Setting up Virtual TV output for external devices

I'm looking around for some solutions where you can display an output to a virtual TV that acts as a second monitor and capturing the source coming from the device that wants to display and play video and audio feed. Specifically for game consoles where if you are wanting to stream or record something and you want to add a capture display for those game consoles and pipe it into the virtual display in real-time with little to no latency as if it were on another physical output display in its full native resolution and framerate, and then being able to take that virtual output and feed it into an application like OBS Studio which will capture the virtual display once you add it in.

I've looked at applications like VLC for capturing devices since it has that feature built-in, but it seems somewhat limited in what it can capture and display and seems like it might limited with bandwidth and not sure if it would work with capture card devices like Elgato HD60S. To be able to open the virtual display of the captured device as a window.

I was look at this https://github.com/tolga9009/elgato-gchd software here which is very experimental and in alpha but works somewhat with some Elgato capture cards which in turn creates a FIFO file which can be fed into OBS or another application, thing is though I'm not sure if I can output that FIFO into multiple applications, one into OBS and into another for just displaying as a regular TV output, and the video stream can't be paused in the application it's streaming to because it ends up breaking it.

Choosing a distro

Hello, I only really play Minecraft and Minecraft windows 10 while I wait for windows 10 to release on Linux I plan to dual boot with Linux, so far I have tried out arch which was honestly just annoying and Ubuntu which I dont like because it always set me to 60 hz after reboot Minecraft was locked at 60fps and I couldnt get in true full screen along with other things I didnt like about it. What is a good distro that would let me have true full screen and 144 hz and actually works well. Sorry for the wordy post

Having trouble with display for Sims 4.

Forgive me if I sound stupid - not super familiar with this stuff. Downloaded the entire Sims 4 package to test it out through nmac. Im currently using High Sierra and disabled gatekeeper and SIP. Everything seems to be functioning completely fine except for the display. The game only appears in the upper left corner, and the mouse hovers over buttons slightly off, as if the buttons are where the screen is supposed to be. I am unable to click on the menu options inside the game to look at in-game display settings because of the hovering issue. Other then that, everything runs completely fine as far as I can tell. Is anyone able to help me out with this?

Probarbly not Gamehub. Installing DLC problem KC:D

I must be doing it wrong!

Installed the windows game "Kingdom Come: Deliverance" and it runs fine, give or take.

Then I decided to install the DLC and the GoG DLC installer fails to detect the base game. The installers are all the same version 1.9.5.404-503_(35438) downloaded from GoG today.

The error is "! The base game was not detected. Please install the GoG version." Which it is.

The main Installers are under games/gog/_collections/

The dlc Installers are under games/gog/_collections//dlc

Main Game folder is games/gog/kingdom_come_deliverance

The Main games executable (kingdomcome.exe) lives in games/gog/kingdom_come_deliverance/bin/win64

Used the Wine windows program loader to launch from Dolphin and got the error.

Moved the dlc installer to the game folder and the Win64 folder.

What do I need to do to install the dlc? Is there a better way?

what's your experience with D9VK/DXVK performance on APUs/integrated graphics?

since i've switched from win10 to manjaro few days ago (not my first linux rodeo, been using it for years long time ago), i've decided to test out a few things.

shadowverse (card game) works perfectly under steam via dxvk, 60fps no problem.

tomb raider (2013) - that's interesting. people are reporting it to work better under dxvk than native version, and that's my experience as well, but the framerate is actually lower. on the same (mixed, mostly normal with maxed textures) settings in 720p, built-in benchmark showed 40-46fps for native vs 34-40fps for dxvk, but native version had some weird stuttering. as a result, windows version under dxvk is a lot smoother.

but when it comes to the witcher 2... well. lets say it's better and worse than expected at the same time.

native version works like a charm - it's hard to tell if it's slower, since back when i was playing it under windows, it was in 1280x1024, and now it obviously won't run smoothly in 1080p (same APU, different monitor), but in 720p it seems to have comparable performance but with higher settings enabled (AA with sharpening, DoF). will know for sure when i'll get to a location i've benchmarked back then under windows. perfectly playable though, and looks great.

i've tried windows version from gog as well, under wine (default from manjaro) with dxvk thrown into the mix, it required some winetricks to get it working, and then... almost 2 times slower than native version on the same settings. like... that shouldn't happen. i saw people reporting it to work better than native version under windows, yet here we are.

one thing coming to mind is some issue with vsync and compositing, but that shouldn't be the case. granted, i've got tearfree enabled for amdgpu and kwin running on auto vsync via opengl 3.1 with the ability to block compositing disabled, but personally i hate things running without vsync and with higher than refresh rate framerate. kwin shows 60fps, glxgears shows 60fps, shadowverse shows 60fps via DXVK, witcher 2 (both native and running via wine) somehow manage to bypass all that vsync and reach hundreds of fps in the menu unless i'll enable vsync in settings, which - interestingly - seems to have no impact on gameplay performance whatsoever in either version. i assume they're still going through kwin (should be) and it just intelligently disables vsync for them as fullscreen apps, but compositing impact is close to zero anyway, certainly not in the "2x slower than expected" ballpark.

the only other option is d9vk performance drop, related to... what? APU/integrated graphics and the way memory management works on those? windows version of the witcher 2 was running via d9vk, i've tested tomb raider as well with dx9 forced via regedit and it worked more or less identical performance-wise as it did with dx11, just a bit less stable (crashes when changing some settings) - under windows tomb raider's performance benefits heavily from switching to dx9, not sure if that's the case under dxvk in general.

btw, same witcher 2 install, but going through wine's built-in dx9 support, has even worse performance than when using d9vk. considering that when using d9vk, it's running almost 2 times slower than it should be, that's an achievement... but in case of wine's d3d and the witcher 2, to be expected.

i may try installing windows version of the witcher 2 from gog using steam play to see if it's any better later on, so far i've tried running it via steam's proton using the wine prefix i had with latest dxvk release, and the only difference was in using proton's screen scaling instead of resolution switch, performance was the same. considering how good the native version is, and how much trouble it was to make the game run under wine, i may as well pass on that.

TL;DR: on A8-7600 APU, dxvk seems to work great, but at least some games using dx9 and going through d9vk (the witcher 2) are getting much lower performance than expected.

thoughts?

Created OpenGL EXE program, with DLL, how to run with wine

I created a.exe program (OpenGL with libraries statically linked) and a single dll: freeglut.dll in the same folder (a.exe and freeglut.dll in same folder, it works in windows)

I 'cd' to that folder which has the exe and run:

wine a.exe

but it says:

002a:err:module:import_dll Loading library freeglut.dll (which is needed by L"Z:\\home\\shlomi\\Desktop\\opengl\\submission11\\computer_graphics_20562_submission_11\\a.exe") failed (error c000007b).

The a.exe does work in windows 10

It is compiled in linux, also works in linux (if compiled to linux build, of course) (it is cross-platform program)

Also it is 64 bit program (all lib and dlls)

Should my thinkpad x200 be good enough for in-home streaming?

Had this laying around, so figured Id use it in the basement hooked up to the TV so I can watch Plex, browse the web, and also use it as a steam streaming machine.

Host PC:

  • Ryzen 1700
  • Vega 56
  • 16GB of RAM

Streaming PC:

  • Thinkpad x200
  • P8600 Core2duo
  • PopOS
  • 4GB RAM
  • Small SSD
  • GM45 graphics (I think)

Both hooked up with Ethernet btw.

Games I tried with results:

  • Doom 2016 - extremely laggy input - were talking close to a half a second.
  • Tricky Towers - works, but audio comes out from Office PC
  • Cook serve delicious 2 - works 100%
  • Turbo Pug DX - works but sound on office PC
  • stardew valley - works 100% but input is a little laggy.

Ive tried using my phone before over 5GHz wifi, and it seemed to perform better than this (One plus 5T).

Is this computer too old? Seems more powerful than a steam link, but maybe there is something different about them that make them better at streaming.

Overwatch freezes my entire system

So, I used to have little to no problem running Overwatch on my previous Nvidia Rig. But now that I have switched to AMD, the game just freezes my entire setup.

I'm using the latest lutris runner (5.2) GPU 5700 CPU Ryzen 7 3700X 16 GB Ram

I can hold the game at 100+ fps on ultra but every now and then I have to reset the system. So far I tried any AMD GPU related fix but unsuccessful and I don't want to go back to windows just for one game.

Battlefield1942 glitchy sounds effects

(Using wineskin) To make BF1942 run at a playable frame rate I used 1.2 and 1.3 engines, but every time a sound effect plays, it stops immediately (for example, if someone yells "MEDIC" I hear "ME" ) .I tried to mess up with in-game sound options trying to make it work, achieving nothing. So I tried using newer engines. Using some of them I could ear perfectly sounds, but at the cost of quite low framerate, and some other didn't even work. There is a way to fix sounds( without changing engine )?

Ps: not a big expert about wine and these stuff, so I apologize if I say something stupid about this topic.

GUI to control LEDs and MFD of a Logitech/Saitek X52 (just in time for X4: Split Vendetta!)

Hi everyone, I just published GX52, a GUI app that allows to control the LEDs and MFD of a Logitech/Saitek X52 (Pro).

LEDs

MFD

I know it is for a super small niche of users (how many Linux users own a Saitek X52?) but, since I put some effort in writing it, I wanted to let the other few owners know that finally, like in Windows, there is a GUI to control the LEDs and MFD of our H.O.T.A.S.!

This is also the right time to dust the X52 off because tomorrow X4: Split Vendetta will be released!

If you are interested, the app is available on Flathub or, if you don't like it, it is always possible to run it from the source (it's written in Python and GTK).

The project website is here: https://gitlab.com/leinardi/gx52

A little disclaimer: I only own an X52 Pro so I developed the support for the X52 blindly. If something doesn't work for you simply open a new issue on the tracker and I'll try to fix it as soon as possible.

Mount & Blade II : Bannerlord thread

So, the game by default doesn't launch because of BattleEye.

I managed to launch the game with proton 5.0 and get to the brightness callibration screen by renaming Bannerlord.exe to TaleWorlds.MountAndBlade.Launcher.exe (skipping the launcher to get directly to the game) but I am stuck here as the input doesn't work (mouse and keyboard).

Running Bannerlord.Native.exe doesn't get me as far as it crashes during the first loading screen.

Any idea welcome.

Borderlands 3 - Performance & Hardware Comparison

While it seems most users (myself included) have gotten BL3 working without issue, it would appear that there is quite some variation in performance for different individuals.

In my case, for instance, I dug up a Windows SSD and found that I could run the game at 1440p with Ultra presets and get about 70FPS; however, I have been unable to get a stable 60FPS with Proton/Wine at 1080p, much less 1440p, at Very Low settings. At 1080p Very Low I find that I get about 50 FPS average, with Ultra seeing 43 FPS, and 1440p seeing about 38 FPS with any settings. I should also add that turning off my second display should (in theory) give a minor performance increase due to some bad DPM issues with AMDGPU's vega20 support.

This might seem par for the course; however, the one other set of performance figures I've seen for Linux saw the fellow doing the benchmark getting ~80FPS at (what I assume was) 1080p - roughly matching his Windows benchmark results.

What is almost certainly happening here is that the system is not able to get instructions and data to the GPU as fast as possible, which is acceptable to some degree given that a translation layer is in use here (DXVK); however, the extent to which this is a problem seems to far exceed the norm. The CPU sits at maybe ~50% utilization when running the game with all logical cores in use as is to be expected, while CPU utilization is not always the best indicator for this, I would expect it to be a little higher if it were that much of a bottleneck.

For reference, relevant configuration details are as follows

  • Radeon VII
  • i7-4790k (replacing this is on my to-do list, but it's not happening any time soon)
  • 32GB of RAM
  • 2x 2160x1440p monitors, one is running at 144hz and the other 60hz (having both at 144hz will cause the Radeon VII's SMU to get very upset)
  • Kernel 5.6.0-rc6 off of Linus' branch. The kernel is preemptible. No idle dynticks.

I'm using GloriousEggroll's Proton kang, specifically the prebuilt 5.4-3 release. esync is disabled. The game itself is launched with texture streaming disabled (-notexturestreaming), which more or less eliminates all stutter.

I'd like to know what other people are working with, in terms of hardware and software, and what performance figures they are seeing as well as what settings they are using and what tweaks (if any) have been made.

Techinical Issue

Hey Y'all,

Have used playonmac for a while and has been fine for playing some Elderscrolls games on my mac.

However I have been trying to run a windows version of steam to play Age of Empires 2 I bought on the steam store which can only be run on mac.

I installed a Steam.exe and had to change my playonmac windows version to get the thing to start; however I get this error in the debug:

c:\buildslave\steam_rel_client_win32\build\src\common\net.cpp (2009) : Assertion Failed: Unable to set default socket options, error 10022

And all the text in the Steam window is displaying as squares.

Any ideas for solutions?

Thanks,

Tom

Failed to Launch Steam Game

Hi everyone, sorry for bad English, but I'm new to linux gaming and currently having some problem with Proton, or at least that's what I thought. The problem is that I can't launch Monster Hunter World, whenever I try to launch it from either Steam or through command line, the game windows would appear for a brief moment and then immediately close. I've tried both Proton 5.0-5 as well as GE Proton 5.4, but still no result.

Hardware specs:

- Nvidia GTX1650 8GB
- 8gb RAM
- Intel core i5 9300H

Something to note:

I have steam installed on a separate hard drive from where the games are installed. Both are ext4 partition.

I've ensured that the graphics drivers are installed and working.

Ensuring Steam is running using the Steam Runtime.

Both python 2.7 and python 3 are installed.

Given my user the permission for the drive.

KOF98-GOG crashes - Wine 5.0

Mount and Blade: Bannerlord fails to launch using Steam/proton

Setting the game's launch options to PROTON_LOG=1 %command% and reading the resulting log produces a useful failure message toward the end:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'ManagedStarter, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies.


It would be great if someone more experienced could weigh in; I've done next to no troubleshooting of Proton prior to this so bear with me, but here is some relevant info:

Top of the steam-*.log file:

======================
Proton: 1584918606 proton-5.0-5b
SteamGameId: 261550
Command: ['/media/kyle/nvme/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/Mount & Blade II Bannerlord/bin/W    in64_Shipping_Client/TaleWorlds.MountAndBlade.Launcher.exe']                               
Options: {'forcelgadd'}
======================

System:

Distro:Debian GNU/Linux bullseye/sid
Kernel:5.4.0-3-amd64
RAM:8 GB
GPU Driver:4.5 Mesa 19.3.2
GPU:AMD Radeon R9 Fury
CPU:AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core

I see variations of fatal errors involving System.IO.FileNotFoundException google searches, most involve .NET libraries. Borderlands 2 had similar errors, culprits seem to be DirectX or .NET as far as I can tell. In the past I've used protontricks $steam_app_id d3dx9_41, but it didn't work this time.

One thread suggested renaming the launcher .exe file, which I tried with a few of the files under steamapps/common/Mount & Blade II Bannerlord/bin/Win64_Shipping_Client/ as well to no avail.

I just did my morning pacman update and was delighted to see that Mesa 20 has finally made it into the Arch common repo.

This is the release that brought stability and improved performance to many Navi users (myself included) who were using git builds. Getting it into the mainline repo should make things a lot better for a lot of people, including downstream distros.

[Arch] Freesync display flickering in games?

When playing games with VRR enabled, I get heav flickering (to black screen for DXVK, stuttering if a native game) if the frame rate gets low (below ~70fps).

My machine:

  • Arch Linux 5.5.13
  • DE: Budgie
  • Display: X11
  • AMD5700XT
  • MESA 20.0.2-1
  • GPU powermode set to 'High'
  • 144hz display. 40-144hz VRR range

I have 20-amdgpu.conf set to enable VRR and the Xorg logs confirm that on bootup.

Everything I can find from searching online suggests that it was an issue present in Mesa 19, and was likely to be fixed in 19.1 (and 19.3 for Vulkan). I can't really find anything relevant after that.

Note this only happens in games, the display works normally.

Does anyone have any ideas? Or can they point me in a direction of getting a fix?

Many thanks

Gwent is crashing on startup

Hi, hope someone will be able to help a newb out.. I tried to install Gwent via Galaxy client (lutris and pure wine staging) and while it did install ok it crashes right after clicking play.. if I'd start it via exec directly it works up to the login phase - since I do not launch it via galaxy it won't let me sign in.. unfortunately debbuging the output of Galaxy does not reveal anything useful and the game runs if launched standalone.. Have anyone experienced anything similar? Using latest Lutris and wine-staging 5.5

Tac-Sim alternatives

I've given in trying to get ARMA to run on Linux, and apparently even if I do get it running lots of the features won't work.

Does anyone know of any other tactical simulation games that would work on Linux?

I've taken a look at Insurgency, Warface and a few others but they are all either really basic graphics or too "run and gun" counter-strike/quake style for my tastes. I want something as close to arma or better in terms of complexity - a sim, not a moba.

how to install xbox/DS4 controller to play games through lutris/layonlinux?

to make it short, steam since has linux native installer(version) all games works fine, but when i install games through lutris/playonlinux (origin.uplay,epic,gog,etc) they dont detect my controller, all games only play through kb/m.

there is any extra steps to add xbox controller to work on both lutris/playonlinux so i can play my games that arent on steam with a controller?

note: i tried various distros and lts and non lts and had no success yet. any help or tutorial website or video or trick would be very appreciated :)

Ubuntu Mate 18.04 - Unable to install latest WINE

I don't mess with WINE much these days but I decided to try out some free Windows games that came my way and I purged WINE 3.0 to install WINE 5.0 and now I'm in an endless loop of missing dependencies

When I do this

  • sudo apt install winehq-stable

I get

Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation:

from there if I keep following these Depends that are missing I just come back full circle. I'm probably not explaining it right but let me know what you need to assist. Thanks.

Don't know how to formulate the question so I'm just going to explain my problem

This is the 3rd time wine decides to eliminate all files within a bottle (? Is this the right term? Kind of a noob) I really don't know what the problem is/was. Been playing for modded tes oblivion a couple of weeks with no problem whatsoever. Suddenly got a message that original files are not being found. Checked the packaged contents of the app, no files inside any folder. Wtf happened! Lost days of modding and playing with no answer, again! I really can't remembert if I did something that may cause this type of behavior but I don't think so. Any ideas?? Would be very appreciated

A few questions about steam and software in general.

These questions aren't that important since everything already works, but still I'm curious.

Today I installed steam for the first time, and it updated itself. How come my other software from repos require me to run #yum update . Why don't more programs do this type of updating like steam client?

I downloaded and installed a game (SpeedRunners). In system requirements for that game it says windows required. On protondb it says the game is native? Isn't this contradictory?

I don't have proton installed (that I know of), so I figured I will have to $wine .../steam/path/to/SpeedRunners to run it. But for the hell of it, first I tried running it from steam client and it worked. Why did it work? Does it not require wine after all? I checked what's going on with htop, and I had some ubuntu12_32 and ubuntu12_64 processes going on, even though my distro is not ubuntu, it is CentOS.

With Mount and Blade: Bannerlord releasing tomorrow, I was wondering if anyone has had any success getting the current closed beta version to run on linux? I am using the latest proton, and after renaming the executable I am able to get through the launcher and open the game, but sadly mouse clicks are not recognized in the main menu. Moving the cursor works fine, but clicks are not recognized for some reason. The game was running fine for me before the latest version, and I would really like to confirm it can work before buying it tomorrow.

Capture Card that works on Linux

Hey Everyone,

I've been willing to live stream some stuff lately from my switch.
I am however unwilling to switch to Windows to do so.
For this reason I'm looking for a Capture card that works with Linux(Prefer to not have to install extra software)

In an older post I've read Avermedia seems to provide this (at least for their older models)
So my question would be would a more current capture card like the 'Live Gamer ULTRA ' work with Linux, does anyone have any experience with it?

Other recommendations for capture cards that work with Linux, and you experiences with them would be welcome also.

Browser using WINE

Hey folks,

I'm running a game that wants to open a browser in Windows to set up a web account. When I click the "authenticate in browser" thingie, nothing happens. I can only assume this is because... well, there is no browser installed in the WINEPREFIX.

Does anyone know how to get a browser installed? Maybe a winetricks verb? I don't need a fully fledged GOOD browser (Chrome or whatever), just need something that will let me create this web account and get into the game.

Thank you very much.

New to Linux gamin, some questions

I recently decided that since I'm in college for computer science it was time to bite the bullet and get a good Linux machine. I ordered a System76 Thelio, maxed out about as much as I could afford & I plan to run Pop!_OS on it. I am super tempted to buy GTFO as my first game purchase, but I noticed that it's in early access. ProtonDB says that GTFO runs pretty well on Linux, but I'm concerned that as the game is developed that may no longer be the case. Is it generally a risky idea to buy an early access game for a Linux machine? Also please throw any other tips you have my way, I'm competent with Ubuntu but I'm no expert.

WoW: Wotlk - pressed keys lock after alt-tab or when other window gets focus while I hold keys.

I'm playing WoW Wrath of The Lich King through wine. Whenever some other window get focused, in example when discord restarts, the keys I'm holding are being still active in game. I.e. when I'm moving forward (holding "W") and discord restarts, it gets focused (equivalent of alt-tabbing game and switching to discord) my character still moves forward like I'm holding "W" button. For me it happens almost always when something pops off in background and I'm losing focus, my friend on his other OS has same problem.

I didn't find any reports regarding this.

Wine version: 5.4 (Staging)
Kernel: 5.5.13-arch-1 (Endeavour OS)
Wow version: Wotlk 3.3.5a
Does anyone have an idea what could it be and what could be possible fixes?

From what I can tell, the Oculus does not have good Linux support but the following headsets do:

  • Vive ($1000)
  • Vive Pro ($1200)
  • Vive Cosmos?* ($700)
  • Valve Index ($1000)

* I can't find much info on the Vive Cosmos, but that's the one I was considering the most.

Hardware

My hardware:

  • i5-6500 3.2 GHz processor
  • RX 480 8 GB video card
  • 16 GB of RAM

Is the above enough? If not, would getting the RX 5700 be sufficient?

Thanks!

Use your quarantine time to inprove protondb !

Hi everyone,

Like a lots of people worldwide i'm in quarantine for a good chunk of time.

So I was looking at my library in protondb.com and realized that I had little games that had not enough reports on proton or outdated reports !

Then I took 1 hour yesteday to download and quickly test them (I do not have a big librairy and I don't have fiber)

Of course if you have a massive library it will take a lot more time but the idea here is to provide reports for little games not AAA (You can for exemple avoid DOOM that as the biggest platinum score of protondb)

So if you want to improve the database of playable games on linux please do not hesitate to participate it's really simple and in the long run can make a lot for the linux gaming community !

Have a great day !

(Yes I know, improve not inprove, can't modify the title sadly :D )

DS4 controller not detected on Steam.

Hello,

I am trying to connect my PS4 controller to my PC to play on steam. I am doing this through the micro usb wire because my PC does not have bluetooth.

However, when I go into the steam settings and say Playstation configuration support, my controller is still not detected. I also installed the ds4drv in the terminal.

So far, only the trackpad works as the mouse but nothing else.

Any help is appreciated.

gaming on local network

so i wanted to play this game https://store.steampowered.com/app/289460/RC_Cars/

with my siblings because we used to play it back in the day so we wanted to revisit it.

we have 5 PCs/laptops, one of the laptops is running linux, Fedora 31, others have windows 10

game runs on fedora great with steam proton, the only problem is that it doesnt show any servers that are made on our local network and it cant create games too

windows machines can see each other, but the one with linux cant see them

few days ago we played age of mythology on our local network and laptop with linux could create games and could join games created by windows machines so idk why we have problem with this game

do you know if i can do anything about it?

Borderlands 3 won't launch. Linux Mint. Steam

Hey, I waited for this game to come to steam before buying, and when I bought it I was aware that I'd have to do some fiddling to get the videos to work. However, the game won't even launch (Apparently you need this to generate some files before fixing the videos). I press play and it goes for about ten seconds then stops and gives me the option to launch again. Any advice?

WineHQ alternative ?

Is there an alternative to WineHQ for Vulkan ?

Like VulkanHQ where I can see how well DX10-11 games are supported by Vulkan + wine.

From my experience it seems that some games are real pain to run in DX11 with Vulkan while others are super easy. Just wondering if there is a place I can check for compatibility before buying certain titles...

Are we at the point that linux gaming is better than Mac?

I have been thinking about Linux and Mac gaming and what has been going on recently and have not seen a lot of development of mac gaming recently. I did notice from a comment from a Reddit post about what improved in Linux gaming.

"* Almost every game that's ported to Mac is also ported to Linux * Linux has Vulkan which is widely supported. Mac's equivalent is Metal which is not so well supported, and a very old version of OpenGL * Vulkan support means DXVK, which allows you to play most AAA games from the last few years. * SteamPlay/Proton is available on Linux, but not on Mac"

What are everyone's thoughts on this?

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Anomaly 1.5.0 not starting?

Hello,

I have played Anomaly 1.4.0 before (around 1 year ago), and I wanted to get back into it. I installed version 1.5.0 but I have two problems.

The startup screen shows up but clicking on the "settings" option doesn't work, nothing happens (I don't know if it's the same in Windows or not, I doubt it or else it would have been fixed?)

I can start a new game, but it crashed very shortly after with a dialog box just saying "Crash, consult the log" but the log is empty.

This is with wine-staging 5.4 (but 5.2 or 5.3 didn't work either), in d3dx9 mode with/without dxvk (tested with both the D3DX9 relevant libraries installed with winetricks or DXVK installed with winetricks); I also tried installing vcrun2017 native, since WINEDEBUG=+loaddll shows that vcruntime140.dll is a dependency). I start the AnomalyDX9.exe with wine.

I reinstalled 1.4.0 to test it and it works perfectly. So has anybody succeeded in getting 1.5.0 running in wine? Thanks!

Use phone as an xbox controller in ubuntu/debian

Hello people, I just published a project where you can use your phone as an xbox-controller, it is built on top of the awesome yoke.

It took me a while to make everything work, specially with steam, so I decided to simplify everything and share it, if you find something missing please let me know, and open an issue.

I've been playing with a friend, both using our phones, and I've connected the pc to the tv. I'm really happy with the result. Of course is not like a proper joystick, but for silly games it works perfectly.

Go to the repo yoke-xbox-controller and follow the instructions.

Basically this are the changes from yoke:

  • New xbox controller theme
  • SDL_GAMECONTROLLERCONFIG already created to play with steam
  • Removed the other joysticks
  • Includes apk working for android > 9 devices.

Trying DXVK on Arch with Radv/mesa-git

So, im fairly new to linux and i must start saying that its running on a ps4, therefore:

Im using mesa-git drivers on a AMD LIVERPOOL gpu that should be vulkan compatible (tested with vulkaninfo) yet DXVK 1.6 skips my adapter even with the dxvk_filter_adapter argument.

The game im trying to run is dark souls 1, and D9VK works but the framerates and stuttering are terrible.

Any insights on this? I'm assuming i cant recompile my kernel (4.14.93-dirty) since its running on a ps4.

Trying to play Age of Empires II: DE. No idea what I'm doing. Willing to pay for help.

I have limited knowledge of computers and honestly have no interest in learning. I just want to play the game.

I tried to download this following these instructions: https://gist.github.com/contra/554f541f7fa93c12499e0829439860eb

I've got to the point where I'm on Steam and on the mini library but when I click install on the game it says an error message and "invalid platform." After some googling I wrote "NoStartUp" in the launch options. A few pages also suggested editing something under "Local Files" but it's not letting me click on any of those options.

I'm using wine version 4.21 as anything higher wouldn't run steam at all - it just crashed. I'm on MacOs Mojave 10.14.

If someone could help me in an ELI5 kind of way then I'm happy to tip or buy you a game or a pizza or something along those lines. I've already bought a game I can't play so I've already wasted 15 today anyway.

Cheers.

[HELP] cracked windows game from codex failed to load graphics using wine in mac

[my lazy-ass explanation of why I chose to not buy the game] Quarantine time has got me and my gf (lives about 3hours, by car, away from me) bored. Video calls got lame so we wanted to play games. Weve eyed this multiplayer farming game for awhile now. Ive searched most places where you can get pirated games but all Ive found was the windows version of this game and my gf runs a mac high sierra. Theres a paid mac version on steam but weve got no money to support the devs yet.

[skippable content] Shes been really grumpy since I cant find her a crack for mac and shes really not into tech and gaming so this was a rare chance for us to play together. So I instructed her to download wine for her mac (all this is through VC only so imagine what Ive been through hahaha). My only knowledge on wine though is through some youtube videos.

Basically, weve got the windows version of steam running on her mac, and weve added the cracked game to her account. The problem is we keep getting an error titled Failed to initialize player and the details, Failed to initialize graphics, make sure you have directX 11 installed, have up to date drivers and have not disable 3d acceleration in display settings. InitializeEngineGraphics failed. Ive been on it for hours now and I really dont know that much about mac and wine so, I am humbly asking for help. Thanks abunch! :>

Oh btw, we used wine stable, were both students, and were also broke and new to this whole thing. so yeah, young, dumb, and broke. Im sorry if my english is bad, im not that fluent with it.

Thanks againn

Giving away closed beta keys for our next game Making it Home

Hi all,

We just started sending out beta keys for our next game Making it Home.

To get a steam beta key sign up here.

You can read more about the game here and watch the trailer below.

It's a game about build a vehicle to travel across America. You'll build sails, electric engines and other weird stuff and jump around your vehicle managing all those things.

The game was made in Unity3D so should be pretty linux friendly generally. We're going to be running a close beta up until our early access launch and would love to get some feedback!

Hello,

I would like to limit fps to 60 in old Windows games (like Heroes 3) to not waste resource and trying it with libstrangle. However I've got this error:

A search for the best “it just works” distro for the Mag-15 to game on

Hi everyone! This is my first post. I figured I would share my search for the best it just works distro to use on the Eluktronics Mag-15 (also from multiple other online retailers by different names world wide). I figured Id share it here because many who buy the Mag do so to do gaming on the side and likely want to be able to game under Linux as well. I also decided to do this because throughout the various subs Im in I see posts from time to time what is the best Linux distro for the Mag? I figured Id do some investigation into what I found to be the best as far as ease of use for people who are new to Linux.

The tl;dr - Pop_OS is the fastest to get up and running in the it just works category. I have more info below, but if you are looking for a distro recommendation, I wouldnt look any further than that one.

So your first question might be What is your criteria for it just works?

I made this criteria simple: -Installs Nvida and WiFi drivers from the get go -Does GPU swapping from the get go -is quick to install the essentials, like Steam

Your next question is likely, What distros did you test?

I tested the following: -Manjaro -Zorin OS -Elementary OS -Linux Mint -Pop_OS

Heres my experiences with each:

Manjaro: I really like Manjaro, unfortunately it, and almost every other distro, failed with switchable graphics out of the box. Manjaro I decided to attempt getting this to work on my own. Im not a Linux expert, but have used the OS on and off for a couple decades now. So Im not completely an invalid at the terminal and getting things working.

I was able to get switchable graphics working on Manjaro, but due to the rolling release aspect of Manjaro it broke the first time I installed an update. GDM stopped properly working and shutting down causing the OS to hang. Manjaro, for the most part, did work really well out of the box. The amount of software and hardware it supports is pretty fantastic. Especially when you add AUR to pamac.

Based on my first experience Id actually like to come back and try Manjaro again in the future. Maybe when I have access to my desktop again, which doesnt have switchable graphics and will just work.

Due to my struggle to get switchable graphics working consistently and how long it took to get them working properly in the first place I decided to make a base requirement for future distros to have this work out of box rather than fiddle with it. So I didnt have this requirement when I first started.

Linux Mint: So the default go to beginner distro didnt work out of box in a few different ways. Mint was actually the last distro I used full time before I swapped to OSX for a period of time. I generally have good things to say about it, and if youre new to Linux I do think its worth a check.

On the Mag I found that it didnt properly install WiFi drivers and worse it wouldnt recognize that I was physically plugged into a router. Im not sure what the problem with this was and why it didnt work, but not having internet to attempt getting other things setup was kind of drag.

Im not sure if this will also be your experience, because in general I do think Mint is a fantastic distro, but it was mine. So I swiftly moved to the next distros.

Zorin OS: Zorin did not do switchable graphics out of the box as far as I could see. I also was really annoyed that it took it upon itself to install Grub on a completely different hard drive (my windows drive). This lead to me having to futz around with uninstalling that from windows on my windows drive. This is the only OS I tested that did this and I think its worth a mention.

Zorin did support my WiFi out of box and the GPU, just not switching. Onto the next distro.

Elementary OS: This was basically the same experience, minus installing Grub on a different SDD than the install drive, as Zorin. Mostly everything just worked, but no switchable graphics.

Pop_OS: Everything worked out of box. Now I will add Ive had some ups and downs still with Pop over time. I just did another clean install so well see how this one goes, but it does have a weird legacy WiFi issue (which finally seems to be resolved in the installer, but if you have the Mag and dont see WiFi you might want to backpruge the old WiFi drivers) and it sometimes has some odd performance issues Ive experienced.

In general though it does just kind of work out of the box. It wasnt long from install to playing Dark Souls III at a locked 60FPS with some proton and settings tweaking on high settings. Maybe an hour with download time included (obviously the download time will vary on your internet connection).

Ive also found once Synaptic package manager is installed on Pop it takes care of like 90% of everything that isnt installed by default.

The only other thing that really takes an installing is the unofficial Avell keyboard control program so you can change the keyboard RGB settings, but even that is pretty easy to do with the instructions from their github page.

Important Note: This review will likely be out of date after Ubuntu 20.04 gets released and each of these distros fork it (minus Manjaro which is Arch and will likely have some of this stuff sooner). I wanted to test a daily build of 20.04, but sadly the download seemed to be throttled where Im at (the total download ETA was TWO DAYS, so yeah I was definitely being throttled compared to the 60 minutes or less all the others took for comparable sizes).

Ubuntu 20.04 has some pretty major hardware support updates that should make most distros work better out of box for most machines. For example it is my understanding that 20.04 will actually download a custom kernel if it best supports your computers hardware during setup. Which is pretty rad. Also it should include Gnome 3.36 which supports graphics switching out of the box.

So while my conclusion is Pop OS is the best out of box experience on the Mag-15 its really for now, in May things may change pretty substantially for these distros Hell I would assume with Manjaro being a rolling release, youll probably see some of these things in it a lot sooner.

Im pretty excited at how user friendly Linux is getting these days. More people using it means over time easier options to do everything in Linux and more hardware support. Which will make it a great OS for power users and casuals a like. Sure the Terminal is great, but sometimes dont you just want something to work in a click or two via a GUI?

If youve made it this far, do you think that there are other Distros I should try that currently work as well as I found Pop to work? Let me know! Id love to install them and give them a go. For example I didnt test Fedora, but part of that is my bias against that distro from way back in the day in how difficult I felt it was to use. To be fair I havent tried Red Hat or Fedora in over a decade.

Trying to play a game: only the UI shows, no graphics

I'm aware this is probably a really noob question. I'm not new to Linux but I'm new to Linux gaming.

OS: Linux Mint 19.3 Game: 7 Days to Die Graphics Card: AMD Radeon RX 570

I followed the instructions in this link for AMD Mesa open-source drivers, but it didn't solve anything. Maybe I need to do something to activate them? I don't know how to check the status.

Am I missing something obvious here?

Has anyone had anyu luck in getting Civ IV to work on Linux?

I'm was initially drawn to Lutris due ot its promise of an installation wizard for helping you install windows games into Linux. On its site, there are no special instructions given which made me think the game would run just fine.

I went out and specifically bought this version to play (I was using the original release cds before this) but could not get it to install using Lutris. There would always be a runtime error and the installer would crash. I could still load up the game, but it would only be the base game and not any of the expansions (which in all honesty are necessary to play the game).

I really would like to play the game, but don't know how to get it running.

Does anyone have any clue?

Anyone interested to learn how to write an openvr game?

Now that HalfLife: Alyx lacks playable performance for me I want to start to (learn how to) code something in VR myself. Native linux, of course.

Any other C++ coders interested in joining me in this quest? You need to own a VR headset, but any should do since I intend to use openvr that should hide the specifics of the hardware from the programmer.

Step number 1: Find the best documentation of openvr. Hopefully also some hello world example to have a start.

Feral GameMode, Lutris and Steam

I've got a question regarding gamemode:

I've been trying to get it to activate when I start a steam game with Lutris, yet gamemode is never shown as active. When I start a game I installed with Lutris(like World of Tanks for example) gamemode is active. How do I make every single Steam game use Gamemode without manually writing in the launch options?

Trying to get these games to run! Would love some help!

I've been trying to get these two Native Windows things to run in Linux: Contract Wars and Ironsight (partially because I want to play them and partially because I appreciate the challenge). I also don't accept anti cheat as a reason not to try.

Ironsight is run under steam. When attempting to run it in proton, its launcher is opened in a poorly drawn window, and then proceeds to vanish in the background and become unresponsive. I've tried messing with the proton prefix (messing with the DirectX dlls, and installing dotnet45 via winetricks), but nothing actually seems to work. Every instance of someone else running it that I know simply points out that the anti cheat doesn't allow things like wine and proton, but based on the way the software behaves, I think something else is going on. I want to keep trying, until I know that I'm being blocked by anti-cheat. I know that the launcher uses IE, but can't see how to use this in wine.

The second game, Contract Wars, has had marginally more success. I have managed to get the game to run, and the launcher to run, but only in separate attempts. I cannot get the launcher to open the game. When I can get the game to run it stays in a loading loop, and does not progress. I believe this is because it requires info from the launcher to run (thus the continuous loading loop). At first, the launcher would only cause a black screen to appear, but with dontnet45 installed, the launcher renders in pure white, with a button in the corner saying "start game." upon clicking this button, nothing happens. I have only found a few instances of an attempt to make this game compatible). No one, has included their methodology to a sufficient extent that I could understand it.

If you're really good with wine, I would appreciate your help.

thanks!

Media Foundation Wine Workaround Not Installing

Hello. I recently got a game on Steam built for windows. I'm trying to run it over linux (ubuntu) via the Steam Play services with proton 5. However, upon running the game it crashes at the splash screen. To avoid this, I was directed to the Media Foundation Wine Workaround but upon running it says that "./mf-install.sh: line 12: wine: command not found". I'm apparently missing something and was hoping for some help

Uplay in linux

Hello, I have managed to install uplay in Linux through steam, however, steam installs a new instance of uplay for each uplay game. This creates issues because I have to sign in to uplay again whenever I launch a game.

Is there any way to tell steam to use the already installed instance of uplay when installing a new uplay game.

Thanks in advance

So not exactly gaming, but graphics driver related....

I used my Ubuntu machine for gaming, and mostly succesfully now with all the helpful guides on ProtonDB!

I am also trying to use my machine with Folding@Home when I'm not gaming. CPU jobs work just fine, however GPU jobs don't. I have the GPU set up as a work-unit, and Folding@Home will acquire a job for the GPU-WU, but it will never start. Continuously trys to start the job until it times out, from the log I have this each time it trys to run the job:

Failed to start core: OpenCL device matching slot 1 not found, try setting 'opencl-index' manually

So I've tried the obvious option on the 'opencl-index' settings, but no luck... My googling so far points at this being a driver issue... Anyone got some basic troubleshooting advice to start with here?

  • Release: Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic)
  • GNOME: 3.28.2 (Ubuntu)
  • Kernel: 5.3.0-42-generic
  • CPU: i7-4770
  • GPU: AMD RX480 8GB

and if I run 'lshw -c video':

       product: Ellesmere [Radeon RX 470/480/570/570X/580/580X/590]
       vendor: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]
       physical id: 0
       bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0
       version: c7
       width: 64 bits
       clock: 33MHz
       capabilities: pm pciexpress msi vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom

The AMD Pro graphics drier was downloaded and installed from the AMD website directly. So... Any ideas?

Installing Game Kills Memory with Processes

I installed SangFroid Tale of Werewolves 3 times today and at the end of the GOG installer my computer slows to a halt. All of my memory is used up and I bare killed Wine to save it.

I noticed in the System Monitor hundreds of these two processes:

  • icacls
  • wineconsole

I was unable to kill them individually, but PlayOnLinux has a "Kill all processes" button that saved the day.

What is going on?

Diablo 2 - no sound

Sorry for making this post, but I've already been googling for hours.

I run Diablo 2 with wine and everything works perfectly except there's no sound. I can't even click on the sound options in game - they are greyed out and unclickable.

In the log file I found this:
DirectSound error: DSERR_INVALIDPARAM returned on DirectSoundCreate
Couldn't initialize DirectSound

I may have obtained this game in morally questionable ways and I intend to buy it if the gameplay is good and if the problems are solved

What I tried: pressing ctrl+s ingame, changing compatibility to windows xp in winecfg, fiddled with dsound library in winecfg, running wine as sudo, uninstalling pulseaudio to try if alsa works. Nothing worked.

DS4 is a hit and miss. Debian testing.

How do you guys utilize your DS4 and which games have you successfully played with it.

Steam controller settings work most of the time but when it comes to other launchers like Uplay it just straight up doesn't work.

I'm using DS4drv and I was thinking that maybe I should install DS4Windows in my wine drive(?) I used it before in the same laptop that is now my Linux daily driver.

Trying to Run Warhammer 2: Total War on Ubuntu (and failing!), Please Help!

Hello everyone. I am brand new to Linux. Kinda bad at it, too, so I have difficulty navigating all the jargon.

I'm trying to get Warhammer 2 to run on my system. If I run the game on Ubuntu's Steam, I get a weird launcher (like a tech support launcher, with buttons for readme, support, etc) with a message that says "System does not support 3D API required by this game!"

At first I tried to find Vulkan API files for Linux/AMD. I don't know if I was successful getting Vulkan libraries set up (not sure what I am doing, just Googling similar problems and running recommended scripts in the terminal), but this error has stayed the same.

So then I changed tactics and tried to download Lutris. From Lutris, I downloaded both Wine and Wine Steam.

I figure out how to run Warhammer 2 through Wine, so I opened Wine Steam, redownloaded Warhammer II, and ran it from there. Wine Steam is wonky: the UI keeps glitching, the friends list doesn't load, and it says my SSL certificates are not valid so the Steam popup ads are all blank. But I was able to start up Warhammer II. From there, the Warhammer II launcher is normal (all the Total War games listed at the top with the normal Play button), but when I click "Play" there is no video. I can hear the logos and opening cinematic. When it gets to the menu, I can even click on buttons. No video.

In the Wine Steam runner options on Lutris, I tried enabling DXVK, because to my understanding that is supposed to mimic / use Vulkan (?? or something?), buuut, when I hit Save, close the runner options, and re-open them, the "Enable DXVK" switch is turned back off again. So I'm guessing there is something I need to do in the terminal so I can enable that option, but I can't find out what.

Does anyone have any idea how to get this game to work? I don't care if I need to get a different emulation tool, or whatever. I just want to play the game. I've been working on this pretty much nonstop today and yesterday, and reframing my question in Google over and over is starting to feel like slamming my head into a brick wall.

For reference, I'm running Ubuntu on AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, and my graphics card is a Geforce RTX 2080 Super.

Any advice is appreciated. Remember, I suck with Linux so please talk dumb at me lol. I crossposted this to r/LinuxForNoobs and r/totalwar . Thank you!!

[Guide] How to bypass the clock speed and voltage limitations on RX 5*00 cards, in linux

I spent about a day trying to figure out how to do this, and I couldn't find anything on the internet that would help. After throwing shit at a wall for all that time, I finally managed to get some to stick, so I thought it would be a good idea to share this information. I have only tested this on my RX 5700, but in theory it should work with other RDNA1 graphics card. I do not take responsibility for any damage caused by this guide, and as a casual linux user I'm not well-versed in anything that I'm about to say, so you might want to wait for others to check this. It is assumed that you already know how to overclock a graphics card using the AMDGPU kernel module.

Setting up prerequisites

Wine is required to run the windows program we will be using. You can download the program here.

We will also need a python script called upp to check the powerplay tables, as well as ghex to do some hex editing:

sudo apt install python3-pip ghex
pip3 install upp

Step 1: Dump your GPU's BIOS

First you must find where it is located. Execute the following commands in a terminal:

lspci # List PCI-E devices
find /sys/devices/pci0000:00/ | grep rom # List all files containing the term "rom" in /sys/devices/pci0000:00

In the output of the first command, you have to find your graphics card, and make note of the numbers at the beginning of it's line. For example, my output is:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] Raven/Raven2 Root Complex

2a:00.0 SATA controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] FCH SATA Controller [AHCI mode] (rev 61)

In the output of the second command, you need to find a file named "rom" contained in a folder named after those numbers you just found. For example, on my system the output is:

/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.2/0000:13:00.2/0000:20:06.0/0000:27:00.0/rom
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.2/0000:13:00.1/rom
#THIS IS THE CORRECT ONE# /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.1/0000:10:00.0/0000:11:00.0/0000:12:00.0/rom

Finally, read the BIOS out of the correct file into a backup file, with a .rom extension:

cat /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.1/0000:10:00.0/0000:11:00.0/0000:12:00.0/rom > $(pwd)/vbios.rom

Step 2: Read the file into the windows tool

Install the windows tool that you downloaded, and run it's installer. Once you have the program itself running, click "Load" in the bottom left corner, and select the BIOS file that you created. The program should load a bunch of values. Go to the "Overdrive limits" tab, and modify the limits you want (feel free to set them as high as possible, it shouldn't be dangerous unless you don't trust yourself not to set them that high in your overclocking)

When you are done modifying the values you want, hit "Save" in the bottom left corner.

Step 3: Modify the MorePowerTool file to be usable as a PowerPlay table

Create a copy of your current PowerPlay table as so:

sudo su
cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_table > realppt.mpt

Open both the file you saved, and this PowerPlay table copy in ghex. The MorePowerTool file will contain a PowerPlay table around 100 bytes in. Find the point in the MorePowerTool file at which it resembles the copy of the PowerPlay table, and then remove the data before that by selecting it and pressing backspace. If you did it correctly, it should not be readable in the upp tool we installed at the beginning of this tutorial:

upp -i [MODIFIED POWERPLAY TABLE FILE] dump

You may want to run "upp dump" without a file, to compare your current powerplay table to the modified one you created. Writing a corrupt or invalid powerplay table could cause permanent damage to your graphics card, so take time to ensure that they are identical (apart from the changes which could be attributed to the modifications you have made). If upp spits out an error in response to the above command, it means that you have not done the past two steps correctly.

Step 4: Write the new PowerPlay table

sudo su
cat [MODIFIED POWERPLAY TABLE FILE] > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_table

Once the deed has been done, you should check that the values applied correctly:

cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage

Example output:

OD_SCLK:
0: 800Mhz
1: 1850Mhz
OD_MCLK:
1: 875MHz
OD_VDDC_CURVE:
0: 800MHz @ 715mV
1: 1325MHz @ 741mV
2: 1850MHz @ 975mV
OD_RANGE:
# The OD_RANGE section specifies the limits applied to your GPU. In my case the maximum core clock speed has been lifted from 1850Mhz to 1900Mhz
SCLK:     800Mhz       1900Mhz
MCLK:     625Mhz        930Mhz
VDDC_CURVE_SCLK[0]:     800Mhz       1900Mhz
VDDC_CURVE_VOLT[0]:     800mV        1200mV
VDDC_CURVE_SCLK[1]:     800Mhz       1900Mhz
VDDC_CURVE_VOLT[1]:     800mV        1200mV
VDDC_CURVE_SCLK[2]:     800Mhz       1900Mhz
VDDC_CURVE_VOLT[2]:     800mV        1200mV

Note that the PowerPlay tables are temporary and a new one is created every reboot. You would have to create some kind of a script to automate this last step, and make the changes permanent. Happy overclocking! :)

Steam Remote Play with Linux host - blank screen issue when host is fullscreen

Hi all,

I'm playing round with Remote Play so I can stream from my desktop (Pop OS 19.10, Ryzen 3600, RTX 2070 Super) to a laptop (various, X1 Carbon, Thinkpad T450s). I don't see there should be any hardware problem: I've run it with a Windows host on the same machine with no problems, but would prefer to use Linux as that also permits easier SSH remote control of the host for this and a bunch of other stuff.

The issue: streaming from a Linux host works only when before streaming, the Steam game is set to 1080p (i.e. the resolution of the laptop) and windowed mode. And this can only be done directly on the host: otherwise, the client just shows a blank screen (with audio).

(With the Windows host, the game plays at 4k on the host and 1080p on the client with no issues).

Anyone have any idea how I can troubleshoot/fix this?

Satisfactory with Mods?

Hi, I was able to get Satisfactory running just by installing the Epic Games Launcher via Lutris. Installation via Epic Games Launcher was fine and the game runs great.

I tried to get the new Mod Launcher from here running and it installed just fine. Installed some mods via the Mod launcher and can see that it put its files in subdirs of Satisfactory. SML ended up in loaders subdir and the mods them self in mods subdir.

But Satisfactory doesn't actually loads the launcher and mods, be it started from SML or Epic. I found some log files, but they did not contain anything helpful.

Was someone successful in setting up SML and if so how did you do it?

Thx for your help.

How is it that many games works better with proton than Native?

Obviously the resources that are put into porting to linux are limited. But without assuming complete incompetence it's weird that concentrated effort into making a specific game work on linux become inferior to just sticking a translation layer on the exit point?
(Obviously I not close to understanding how these things work technically. That's why I'm asking.)

Also it is likely that we'll see Developers stright out stop porting their games to linux in the traditional sense and instead optimise it for proton? (possibly as a seperate build from the main windows one.)

Does Wine or DXVK have feature like pre-cache?

Hi I'm new Linux gamer. I'm trying to make some games work on Linux.

Some games perform nice through steamplay.

But when I tring to play the World War Z there r so many freeze during playing.

when load complete I can get in the game immediately but when I try to move or look around the screen looks like freezed. After a while it become playable.

The screen will freeze again several seconds after I start move.

And once I keep playing like that for the whole chapter, I'll get a flawless experience when next time I start the same chapter. I think it may be due to the shader cache. So I wonder if there is any method to generate pre-cache?

BTW there is the system information.

How to execute fitgirls-repack with wine/lutris/proton??

Hello!

I downloaded Metal Gear V and Dishonored (fitgirls-repack versions) and I am wondering how to execute those games with wine/lutris/proton.

I executed with wine the installer and all files are extracted successfully but when I try to open with wine it says "Unable to load library steamclient64.dll". Then I copied that library to game's folder but same error...

With Lutris it ask me to install the game but i have installed already. Is there a way to run it directly without installing it?

Thanks

AMD GPU poor performance on Dota2

Hello,

Can you please help me with Dota & AMD RX 580.

I have very low performance with this VGA (about 10 - 60FPS).

I have tried Dota vulkan too, but the performance is not different.

Before, I used GTX 750Ti and the performance is very good, I always get stable 60FPS (I limit it). They both have the same profile.

I didn't test with other games.

My OS: Arch linux with normal kernel.

Driver: opensource AMD driver

Hello guys, I'm trying to set up 2 screens on my computer, one through the integrated gpu and one through the dedicated GPU. This works out of the box on my Windows 10 drive after enabling the iGPU on the BIOS. I tried a few things to make it work on Manjaro but no luck so far. I read about someone that got it working out of the box by using the nouveau driver, but it didn't work for me, although it was the closest I got, for a second both screens got messed up and showed a window on the screen connected to the igpu but that was just it.

Just a heads up - Doom Eternal can be played to completion on Linux

As per the title really. I have managed to complete Doom Eternal using the DRM free exe on Linux using Proton GE.

! Graphics set to Medium Quality !

I was getting anywhere from 60fps in places to a dismal 20ish on certain levels (its as if the game is still rendering things that cant be seen and the gfx card bogs down).

6500k@4.5GHz / GTX1070 (Prop driver 440.64) / Vulkan 1.2.131

I did experience a crash to desktop maybe 6 or 7 times during my play through and it normally seemed to happen when I was just getting to the end of a major battle resulting in me having to do it all over again so if you don't have a lot of patience maybe wait until the stability improves.

When you do complete it, make sure you watch the credits to see a small after credits scene.

As for the game itself. Personally I think Doom 2016 is much better. This one has way too much dependency on ammo management and on the higher difficulties (I did it on nightmare) you spend most of your time running away from enemies whilst trying to single out a weaker one so you can use you chainsaw and get back into the fight.

I will say the game does get a little better after you are 2/3 of the way through the game and have all the upgrades because your ammo seems to last much longer. I wouldn't tell some one not to play it but just beware that this game is probably not what you are expecting when compared to Doom 2016.

A quick guide on how to install FOnline: Reloaded a MMORPG based on Fallout 2 on Linux

For those of you curious about what exactly FOnline: Reloaded is here is a quote from their website which you can find here:

FOnline: Reloaded is a free to play post-nuclear MMORPG based on FOnline: 2238, an award-winning game set three years before the events of Fallout 2. FOnline: Reloaded provides you with a unique opportunity to revisit the ruins of California and explore the familiar locales from Fallout 1 and Fallout 2.

FOnline: Reloaded is a player-driven, persistent world MMORPG that allows you to participate in a wide range of activities, which range from faction wars to exploration, mining, scavenging for resources, caravan raids and more. The game puts a lot of emphasis on team play and dynamic, unscripted PvP action, but there is absolutely nothing to stop you from focusing on PvE dungeons or role-play.

FOnline: Reloaded is powered by the latest iteration of the FOnline Engine, which was created from scratch by Cvet and which is capable of utilizing assets imported from the original Fallout games, as well as Fallout: Tactics, Arcanum and Baldurs Gate. The development of this engine started back in 2004 and continues to this day.

Our server offers several improvements over the traditional FOnline: 2238 formula. We believe in creating a fair, balanced and reliable gaming environment for all the players involved. This allowed us to present you with a game which is both perfectly stable and relatively bug-free.


In order to get started you should first download the client. You can find it here. After that you should install Lutris (instructions on that vary but you can find out how to get it installed on their download page).

Locate where you would typically install a game for Lutris and create a folder (maybe something like FOnline: Reloaded but it is up to you) and empty the FOnlineReloaded.zip file into the folder you created.

Open up Lutris and click the plus sign in the top left corner. You should enter the add a new game menu. Enter a name and select Wine under the Runner section. Switch on over to the game options tab, for the Executable section locate the folder you created and put the FOnlineReloaded files into and select the file FOnline.exe, and lastly under the Working Directory section select the folder where everything is located. Click save and give it a go


I figured I would type this up because I haven't seen anyone else try to play FOnline: Reloaded on Linux before and it may end up helping someone who was curious about giving it a try. I imagine there are still easier ways to get it setup that I didn't think of so feel free to comment below with suggestions as they would be much appreciated

Revert back to linux version after forcing proton?

Hi!

I was trying to get Hypnospace Outlaw running with the native version but after some googling it turns out it's basically "bugged" (at least on Arch? unsure ) and they are gonna patch it.

Because of this I figured I would try to force proton and play using that... After re-installing the game on proton and having that crash as well, I wanted to go back to the Linux version of the game ( if i'm gonna mess around to get the game running, might as well try with the native version first ). Turns out that no matter what I do, steam keeps downloading the windows version. I've unchecked proton both for Hypnospace Outlaw itself and the "force proton for all games"-thing, game still downloads the windows build.

Google was of no help, anyone else run into this? Any idea what I could do to fix it? ( Besides nuking .steam, which wouldn't be a big problem but it's annoying and seems a bit stupid )

Thanks!

open-source platform game engine/editor called the PGE Project

https://wohlsoft.ru/PGE/

For short, it's a foss drag-and-drop platform game engine writen in c++, similar to super mario maker but it can do more cool stuffs like entire games (episodes), It is tested on ubuntu and mint, I tried it on xubuntu and it just worked like a snes cartridge from 1990.

How it came to be:

Before super mario maker, there was super mario fan-game called super mario bros x aka smbx (you might already know it). It was great! Nintendo DMCA-nuked it! it's still downloadable from the website (https://www.supermariobrosx.org/) but it stopped receiving updates. Fortunately, many derivatives started appearing, but this one is more than a fan-game; it's basically like scummvm, one app that can run some games natively.

notes:

* Extract the "configuration packages" (data used by one or more "episodes") in /configs, create it if it doesn't exist.

* Extract the "episodes" (scenarios/stories) or standalone levels in /worlds, create it if it doesn't exist.

* I had to read pge_engine.readme.txt to find the two previous notes, it also contains other informations like the default controls so you read it too.

* You can download content from the official forum right here: https://wohlsoft.ru/forum/viewforum.php?f=52&sid=136171ce8d548222a996267caac5cb55

* You can also download smbx 1.3 episodes from it's website: https://www.supermariobrosx.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=36, you will need the 'Super Mario Brothers X 1.3 Compatible' configuration package, just download it from https://wohlsoft.ru/config_packs/ and extract it in /configs.

2D browser game: where to start

Im a software development student in my last semester at a two year trade school. This term we have been tasked with a capstone project that displays what we have learned, as well as challenges us to implement software we want to work with. For my project idea, I decided I wanted to host my own Wordpress website and deploy a basic 2D web game to said website. On top of that I want to integrate firebase to my web game so players can save their progress or stats. Furthermore, my hopes are my game can be played from most browsers, be it mobile or desktop, so that I am able to show off my project to potential employers. My questions are these:

  1. What game engine will achieve my goals? Im currently running Pop!os 19.10, and Im looking into unity instant games.
  2. What are some free online resources I should start with? Ive never done any game development, but Ive built webpages, Android & IOS apps, deployed LAMP stacks, and integrated+managed MySQL in webpages(including Wordpress).
  3. I have until June 6th to complete this project. Am I biting off more than I can chew? Keep in mind I only want to create a simple 2D game with basic movement.

Based on my own research, here's what I've come across that indicate I might be able to pull this off:

Any help or advice I could get would be greatly appreciated. Ive always wanted to make a game, and now I have an opportunity to do so in an official capacity. Hopefully I can get something working and maybe Ill post it on Reddit after I complete my project.

TLDR; Want to create basic 2D browser game and deploy it to a wordpress site. Would be developed on a laptop running Pop!Os 19.10. Where should I start and what are some resources I should look into?

Certain Steam games bypass Steam Input entirely?

Certain Steam games seem to hook my DualShock 4 directly, bypassing Steam's controller config entirely. These range from Linux native games to games run through Proton. I'm not sure what's going on.

Examples of games with this behavior:

  • Princess Remedy in a World of Hurt (Proton; hooks PS4 controller badly, ignores everything Steam Input sets)
  • Danganronpa 1 and 2 (native; ignores emulated controller inputs; doesn't ignore emulated KB/M inputs)

Games that notably work:

  • A Hat in Time (Proton; has in-game controller support but also allows Steam emulation without double-input)
  • Baba is You (native; Same as A Hat in Time)

I'm completely stumped as to what causes this (I assume some weird implementation of controller libraries in these games, but I have no idea)

I'm running Arch Linux and I've already done the stuff in this thread so I'm stumped. Any advice?

LEGO games do not work when using Proton

Hi there,

I've been trying to replay a few LEGO games using Proton recently and found that I could not get a single one to work properly. They all used to boot up and play flawlessly but now they either go to a black screen or crash instantly. I noticed that if the game is stuck on a black screen it is labelled as "Zombie" in my task manager and has to be force killed. The games I have tested were the following:

  • Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Stuck on black screen)

  • Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Crashes instantly)

  • The Hobbit (Crashes instantly)

  • The Lord of the Rings (Stuck on black screen)

I've tried posting these issues in the Proton issue tracker but since the games seem to run flawlessly for the majority of people I have not found any solutions. Almost every other game that I run through Proton works fine so I am very confused as to what's causing these all to have issues.

I am running Kubuntu 19.10 with a nvidia gtx 1080ti with up to date drivers. I've tested each of the games with Proton 5.0, 4.11 and 4.2 and have encountered the same issue on each.

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

wine-staging keyboard layout problem

Hello everyone,

when I start any application in wine-staging my keyboard layout inside that application gets messed up. To be particular I have a German keyboard layout and when I press "v" I get a "" and when I press "" it prints "d". This problem does not occur in default wine and I have this problem on both my machines which are running on arch. I tried different keyboard layouts just for testing and only the German ones seem to be wrong inside wine-staging.

I'm using xorg and kde plasma if that is important.

Any suggestions are appreciated and stay save.

SKSE Plugins not working anymore (Proton-GE)

Is anybody else unable to play Skyrim Special Edition with any SKSE64 Plugin mods now ? This all used to work, and plugins are all latest versions but any plugins at all and the game simply won't load. Some the little terminal that Proton-GE runs SKSE64 in will just never get as far as loading the game (Better Jumping for example), others like Ultimate Combat - the game opens but the main menu never loads, just sits there with that stupid spinning circle load icon for ever.

In either case - it's impossible to play. All other mods work fine, including those using the script extender alone - it's just plugin-based mods that break. This is bothersome though - there are some awesome mods that use SKSE64 plugins (I mentioned two above).

If anybody has a fix for this, I would greatly appreciate it.

ckb-next manjaro no device detected

Hi, Running latest manjaro kde and ckb-next from AUR, with scimitar pro mouse. Most times on startup I need to unplug and reconnect the mouse for ckb to recognize the mouse otherwise its saying no device detected after restart. Does anyone have any advice about where to start troubleshooting this? I've tried both the regular release and the git release in the AUR, both have same issue.

I have manjaro mate currently with i5 4th gen and internal gpu with 8gb RAM. Not great fps in dota when compared to windows. Using gamemode in lutris

Should i switch to Pop OS?

What will be marginal improvement in fps?

If pop os yields better performance, will I be able to upgrade after ubuntu 20.04 is released?

Thanks in advance

Best DXVK version for Far Cry 4?

Basically newer versions of DXVK (1.6) will run with near-native performance, but with horrible glitches that make trees appear and reappear randomly + some weird lines all over the place.

On the other hand, older versions (0.61) run with severely crippled performance, but without all the artifacts.

My question is, which DXVK version gives the best performances, without the artifacts? Had any8ne tested?

Dragon Age Origins - Ultimate Edition - Running Flawlessly So Far Under Steam/Proton 5.0-5

Game: Dragon Age Origins - Ultimate Edition

My setup:

OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64

Kernel: 5.4.27-1-MANJARO

CPU: Intel i5-9600K (6) @ 4.600GHz

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER

Memory: 15935MiB

Steamplay: Proton 5.0-5

Overlays: turn all off

Issues: Sometimes the game will not recognize the keyboard. This is an old issue that happens under Window$. The solution is to either run the game in 'Window' mode or while in game hit ctrl+alt keys to regain keyboard control.

Notes: Proton has come along way.

Ubuntu and 32-bit gaming

Hey guys, I use Gentoo as a daily driver and its great, but its not been the best for gaming as I have had issues building DXVK. Not an issue, because I dont really use it for gaming, but I am planning on making a dedicated gaming box for my TV and I want to use retro arch and emulationstation as well as Steam. I know Ubuntu has long been the gold standard for gaming, especially with Steam, but I remember all of the drama with 32-bit support last summer. I know Canonical said theyd continue support for now, but they are going to remove it in the future. Im wondering what you guys think is the best set and forget distro for a dedicated gaming machine. Im pretty well versed in distros and I use Ubuntu 18.04 as a server at my house and its incredible. Super stable. I also love Debian, but I think its packages are a bit too old for a dedicated gaming machine. Arch is ok but it crashes too often (in my experience, using it as set and forget was painful. I used to use it as a daily driver but I grew tired of it.) Im leaning towards Manjaro but I worry it will have much of the same issues as Arch did. Honestly I would prefer something systemd free, but I know thats probably not super realistic for what Im aiming for here.

If Canonical had not made that decision, Ubuntu would be the obvious choice here, but here we are. What do you guys think?

Measuring Frametime?

Just recently got into Linux gaming and it's absolutely fantastic. How do I measure 95% and 99% frametime in a 90 second measurement? I can't install the AMD Adrenaline drivers because Ubuntu 20.04 isn't supported yet and not sure if it's like its windows counterpart. In Windows I would use CapFrameX. I'm confused how to do this with games with the Proton compatiblity layer.

Skyrim (oldrim) crashing intermittently with and without mods, any ideas?

Skyrim, running under Proton GE and Lutris for mod support, is crashing intermittently - mainly when loading new cells (area transitions or chunk loading). The crashing occurred prior to modding and seems to increase in frequency the more I play on this save. Does anybody have any idea on how to fix this or at least decrease the frequency of the crashes?

Why EAC/BattlEye is unlikely to work under wine anytime soon

I don't know anything about the internals of either anticheat solution, but from a little bit of knowledge of wine's internals (I'm no expert, so some details may be wrong), I'll try to explain:

Both EAC and BattlEye require kernel drivers in order to work, and wine quite simply doesn't have a kernel.

One could argue that wineserver technically fills that role, and while that is somewhat accurate, it only fills the role at a superficial level, only enough so that wine itself can work. It works through IPC (inter-process communication), using unix sockets, which is obviously completely different from how windows works (primarily through syscalls and special files, like linux actually). By the way, this is mainly why esync and fsync have such a huge performance increase, because they reduce the reliance on wineserver (unix sockets), the latency can cause pretty significant slowdowns for games.

Can wine add support for kernel drivers? Theoretically: probably. But it would require a significant restructuring of the entire way wine has worked for the last 20 or so years. The server alone is ~50,000 lines of code, and ntdll (the main dll that interfaces with the kernel) is ~125,000 lines of code. Not all of it would have to be rewritten (e.g. a lot of ntdll just calls other ntdll functions), but I would be highly surprised if a very significant portion wouldn't have to be rewritten. This is an enormous undertaking, especially if it's taken by the EAC or BattlEye developers, who's main area of expertise lies in anticheat under windows, not emulating windows under linux. Short of hiring many wine developers (which unfortunately there are relatively few of, the majority of which are already employed by codeweavers, collabora, or valve), it's not going to be in any way an easy project for them. Even if they were to hire experienced wine developers, it would probably still take a really significant amount of time (I'd say at least 2 years, but I'm speaking out of my hat here).

So then comes option #2: create a separate, weaker system built specifically for wine... and change the target of cheaters to instead be about either using wine, or making windows look like it's wine, so that they can cheat more easily. Apparently EAC tried to do this (there were a few wine-staging patches relating to this at some point), but I'd be surprised if this was really a realistic goal for them. Unless they were to create a userspace anticheat that were strong enough, which would lead us to...

Option #3: Make the anticheat work entirely in userspace. It might not be a terrible idea (Denuvo has proven this to be somewhat possible), but obviously this would require a good amount of restructuring on their side in order to work, especially to avoid weakening the protection.

Anticheat companies have an incredible technical challenge ahead of them, whatever option they choose.

(Just to be clear here, I'm not endorsing the use of kernel mode anticheats, denuvo, or epic's strategies. I know they're all controversial, this post is only focusing on the technical side, not the ethical or political side. I don't have any kind of insider information on whether they are actively working on it or not. All I'm saying is, if they are, it's very likely going to take them a while).

Just a small vent, Fuck Epic and their shenanigans against Linux.

Before acquiring EAC, they said that they had plans to make their anti-cheat work under Proton. Since Epic bought them out, we have seen a complete reversal of anything regarding Linux support, and I wouldn't be surprised if they removed EAC's native support for Linux games entirely, just like they did shortly after acquiring Psyoinix. (After they were bought out, they recently dropped linux support entirely with a shitty reason that we all know is just so they can hurt the industry.)

and holy shit, I essentially have had to stay put EXCLUSIVELY - Epic LOVES that!! - on my Windows partition rather than my Linux partition. The games I play on the regular are:

  • Apex Legends (EAC)
  • Halo Master Chief Collection (EAC)
  • Rust (EAC)
  • Rocket League (Fucked by Epic)
  • PUBG (BattleEye, not related to Epic)

FOUR out of FIVE are unable to be played EVEN THROUGH STEAM'S PROTON, and it's ALL because Epic FUCKS whatever they touch.

Thank you for listening.

Morrowind MGE XE Mod - Cannot get it to work in Wine or Proton

Has anyone tried this guide of mine lately with Wine or Proton? I now cannot get this to work for Proton or Wine. I do not know if it is something to do with winetricks, weather Wine or Proton does not come with Microsoft .NET, or if Microsoft .NET is not installing when you create new Wine or Proton prefixes.

I spend 8 hours yesterday and 4 hours today trying to get MGE XE installed and setup in Proton and Wine and I cannot get this to work for the life of me.

Disgaea PC &amp; Proton (all versions up to 5.0.5)

I've tried getting Disgaea PC running on linux and the game is almost completely working with proton with one major exception: If you change it to full screen or full screen windowed mode you can't start the game again.

Full screen doesn't work at all and the only way to get it to work again is to delete the file "~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Disgaea PC/game.cfg" (Or making that file read only before changing settings)

How and where should I report issue's (and possible work-arounds) with Proton?

So, is there any way to play GeForce Now (Without GPU passthrough)?

I'm currently on Windows 10 and I really want to switch back to Linux and I think that GeForce Now would be perfect as my good connection would allow me to play the few game's I can't play on Linux. I've heard Wine doesn't work, I know Virtual Machine's don't as it thinks the GPU is too weak to handle it, and I'm not sure about emulating it on Android.

I know I could do the phone method and simply use Steam to connect to the Nvidia machines, but I also want to play League which I can't do on that and League will soon no longer support Linux with Lutris due to anti-cheat changes.

Any help would be appreciated!

Seems that NVIDIA silently axed their GTC talk about Nouveau

A few months ago, Phoronix reported that an NVIDIA engineer would have having a talk about Nouveau at their GTC conference, "including signed firmware behavior, documentation, and patches; and NVIDIA kernel drivers". Following the link now reveals no talks, and I cannot find any talks by John Hubbard.

Very unfortunate indeed if it is the case that they are cancelling the talk. It would have been great to hear what plans they have regarding Nouveau, especially seeing as this mentions one of the greater, if not the greatest, issue there currently is in regards to Linux' open NVIDIA driver: signed firmware handling.

Hoping whatever they had plans for still will happen.

Advice on choosing an AMD laptop for gaming with Linux

So I've recently come to a conclusion that I'd like to upgrade my laptop to one that is better for gaming. Currently, I have a Lenovo T460p with an nvidia 940MX card. I'm not a heavy gamer, so it's doing fine, but this combo does have its limits. I'm also getting tired of nvidia's problems and having to run proprietary drivers so these limits usually involve the nvidia card throwing a fit forcing me to use the inbuilt Intel card. As an example I'm currently playing OpenMorrowind and my card doesn't do antialiasing so if I want antialiasing I have to play with the Intel card :/. I'm slowly starting to investigate options for a new laptop. I'm in no rush so the fact that coronavirus is impacting supply isn't an immediate problem for this as I can wait.

I would like an AMD laptop so that I can finally run games using the kernel's open source graphics drivers. However, when googling I found it hard to identify any good candidates for a gaming laptop from AMD. I guess they are just not as common as nvidia and the extra Linux requirement complicates matters a bit.

My question is: what's a good AMD laptop to get for gaming with Linux?

I always use Fedora KDE as my distro so generally I run a recent kernel.

Games that I would like to play on high-res are things like: divinity 2, skyrim, and definitely baldur's gate 3 when it comes out. Somewhat demanding, but not the hottest and freshest AAA games. It's actually actually more important for me that the hardware is well supported and doesn't require fiddling around.

Open to suggestions for a new Linux user!

I've dabbled in Ubuntu before but I'm really taking the opportunity to dive into Linux properly now. More and more I've found the adjustments I make to Windows are becoming the lipstick on the proverbial pig. But I don't know if I can completely make the jump if my programs don't work just right. Typically I use my PC for heavy word processing and video editing, but most of my usual programs should be relatively minor to get working compared to my plethora of games. I'm testing Ubuntu atm since it's got the larger userbase, but I'm all for a different distro if games will work with better stability or have less issues to start with. Intel CPU shifting to AMD when the next gen arrives, and NVIDIA for graphics.

I'm going to ask about my other programs elsewhere since this isn't a support forum apparently, but I currently run quite a few game launchers that I'd love to get running on Linux. These include GOG Galaxy 2.0, Steam, Uplay, Origin, Blizzard, Xbox for PC (the Beta app thing for GamePass Ultimate), WoT, Runescape, Minecraft Java, LoL, Star Citizen. I'll typically just screen record using OBS.

I've had mixed success with Wine and Lutris for getting my programs working. Steam works fine, Uplay has been a mixed bag, Origin fails to install on Lutris because it can't get access to a particular file, and Blizzard seems to be a little dodgy. Am I better off running a VM for a lot of these, or should it theoretically be fairly simple for me to write my own installers for Lutris to get a lot of these edge-case games working? I'm also quite aware that some games just aren't going to work for whatever reason, but I want to avoid using a VM if I can.

Looking forward to potentially becoming a gaming penguin!

TLDR: lots of games, not much exp. with coding, want to get games running smooth as possible

SteamPlay/Proton wont launch any games that are on my secondary hard drive.

Somewhat new to Linux, using Ubuntu 18.04.

So I have a secondary HDD setup that I want to use to install all my games to (used it for the same thing on windows). It is setup as NTFS format.

Any game that runs on Linux natively will install and launch/play perfectly fine on my secondary hard drive. But any game that needs to use Proton wont launch from my secondary HDD at all, I hit the "play" button, "play" button turns into a "stop" button as if its trying to launch, then the steam logo appears as if its still trying to launch, then nothing happens and the button goes back to saying "play"

If I install a game that requires Proton on my primary hard drive, which is an SSD on ext4 format, the games will run perfectly fine other than some regular proton issues (which 95% is just the game having no audio and fixed by just having to insert a launch setting into steam)

Why would this issue be happening? should I format my secondary HDD to ext4 as well? The reason I want this issue worked out is because my SSD is only 250gb while my secondary HDD is 1tb. So I cant really go installing all my games on my SSD.

Thanks in advance for anybody willing to assist :)

Hi guys, I'm trying to run Warzone on Manjaro since my friends won't stop bugging me about it and this is the only way they'll shut up. I downloaded the game but when I try to launch, it says it has "encountered a serious problem and needs to close". Here's a full output:

https://pastebin.com/zfmWr441

Anyone know how I can get this working? My system is running the latest version of Manjaro with Deepin DE and has a Xeon X5650, 16GB of RAM, and an RX 570. Thanks!

Fallen Order: Good News / Bad News

The good news:

With the latest Proton releases, SW Jedi: Fallen Order became playable out of the box when installed via Steam / using SteamPlay.

The bad news:

EA just forced an Origin update which fails, so no longer able to log in to Origin -- so can no longer launch the game. (It says you can stay offline and play, but that takes you to a password dialog that won't validate you without being online!)

Issues starting game

Sorry for the vaguaty but I am trying to help get a windows game currently in production work with wine.

The game fails if ran on anything older than windows 8, that was an easy fix (set to windows 10).

Right now the new issue is it crashes on launch with the error:

Assertion failed: (((HRESULT)(HResult) >= 0) [File:E:\\Projects
\\UnrealEngine\Engine\Plugins\Runtime\WindowsMoviePlayer\Source
\WindowsMoviePlayer\Private\WindowsMovieStreamer.cpp\ [Line: 588]

I am pretty new to actually tweaking wine to get games working, any help would be appreciated.

Game requirements:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 3.30GHz or better / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3.50GHz or better
System Memory: 8GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or better / AMD Radeon HD 7950 or better

Civilization VI - Intel Graphics Card

Hi, Im using Ubuntu in my dual GPU laptop which has Intel graphics card and Nvidia GTX960M. When I play Civilization 6, there is only Intel graphics card option in Graphics Settings of the game. Im choosing Use Nvidia card from PRIME menu, it still shows only Intel card in-game settings. Is there any possibility that it runs on Nvidia beside this thing? If its still running on Intel, is there any way to make it run on Nvidia?

My second question is, there is a mod in Civ 6 named YnAMP, its a map pack but its not compatible with Linux, Ive subscribed this mod in Workshop and tried to run the game with Proton, the game didnt start, only grey screen appeared. How can I use that mod in my Linux system. Thanks.

Recommendations for a Desktop Mic for gaming on linux?

I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with preferably <$100 desktop mics on linux, specifically for gaming / possibly streaming. My headset mic isn't cutting it anymore and I would prefer to get something that sits on the desk anyways. I was wondering if there are any decent USB mics out there that will "Just Work" out of the box?

CSGO: how do I get more FPS?

I have a Lenovo B50-10 laptop, the specs are: - CPU: Intel Celeron N2840 Dual Core @ 2.6GHz; - GPU: Integrated graphics; - RAM: 4GB; - OS: Ubuntu 19.10.

I already have a custom autoexec.cfg: https://gamebanana.com/scripts/8983

Is there any way to boost performance? I already have all settings as low as possible. I don't care about graphics, I just want to get more FPS. I currently get around 30 FPS but it always stutters and lags.

ReShade for Skyrim Special Edition - almost working

Hello everyone, I'm trying to use ReShade on Skyrim SE as ENB generates broken and flickery shaders on LODs. It injects itself fine and I can start the game no problems, except that the hotkey to open the GUI doesn't work, thus preventing me from pointing it to the ReShade preset.

Half Life Alyx first test with proton

Just a quick fyi, in case you consider buying it or are just curious: the game started fine ootb via proton and was mostly pretty smooth playable. It is absolutely amazing and the details are breathtaking! SteamVR crashed though after 45 minutes playtime after entering the train wagon and I had forcefully quit it! Haven't tried yet if this is reproducable, but pretty sure other reports follow shortly

What's your favourite game?

A: "What's your favourite game?"

B: "Wine Gaming"

A: "Excuse me?"

B: "Yes, yes, Wine Gaming is my favourite game and do you know why? No let me explain:

It's a narrative walking simulator: Sometimes you need to walk through several Github issues for some fixes or patches to apply them in the right order.

It's a RPG: When you need to disguise your system as a specific version of Windows. Or when you need to install several different components in the right order, change some config files afterwards, run it, close it, change something else and switch windows versions back and forth in order to apply various different fixes.

It's retro: When you need to limit the amount of CPU cores visible to a game to make it run or to limit the amount of virtual memory.

It's souls-like: When you applied the wrong fix, winetricks eg. and screwed everything up and need to start all over again or from the latest "checkpoint". And when something is very frustrating since no matter what you try you're unable to make it work.

It's a puzzle: When you need to carefully remember things you did before to change something later on accordingly. Or if you need to think around several corners to get the right solution.

It's an adventure: when things work astonishing well and performs even better then on windows or simply if you re think all the things you did to make it work it even feels more like an adventure.

It's a point & click: when you click through a winetricks dialogue to imagine what fix you can try next.

It's a coop: When you work with several people together to solve the same problem to make it work for everyone. Or when you write Play on Linux or Lutris installer scripts.

It's a battle royale: When you battle against some hostile developers to make the thing work anyway no matter what they screw up in their latest updates.

It's a hide and seek: When you play online and know the dev do not like Wine gamers and ban them for no reason but are unable to detect you since they do not know.

Yes, yes. Wine Gaming is truly my most favourite game in the past 15 years which I have a very HUGE amount of play time in.

What's yours?"

A small tip, when You're installing game mods with `wine`.

For example, You have a game You bought from Steam and it's located in the default `~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/` folder. This mod also isn't available in Steam Workshop and You NEED to run the installer via `wine` (it's not an archive You can just extract to game's main folder), so Lutris and such tools are also not much of a help.

Since `~/.steam` is a hidden folder mods installers running via `wine` won't be able to see it. But there is a solution!

  1. Simply copying & pasting the full path to the game's main folder (or the exact location, where it needs to be) ine the installation path.

  2. Creating a symlink, either directly to the games folder or the folder above it (like `~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common` in my example). Then installing mods via `wine` will be much simpler and easy to do.

I hope this small tip will help someone! :D

Good day/night and happy gaming!

Example below:

Update on supporting Denuvo workarounds - Testing wanted

Here's the patch: https://gist.github.com/qsniyg/ba6c8f6edf97a6bfc34be532972410cf

Would anyone mind testing this on games with codex's cracks for denuvo? It works with Sunset Overdrive (not denuvo, but fails without this patch), but fails with MGSVTPP (and yes, I set winmm to native,builtin).

Make sure to compile this on top of wine-staging instead of wine (otherwise it won't work).

If you can't or don't know how to, let me know and I'll send you a precompiled ntdll.dll.

The reason I'm asking for testing instead of doing it myself is that I currently cannot test for a while (lack of disk space, the only other denuvo games I own being pretty huge), so I'm curious if MGSVTPP is a separate issue, or if all denuvo games fail. In any case though, this should at least help non-denuvo games to run with codex's cracks :)

If you're curious, here's the research thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/comments/fg4ecu/some_research_regarding_later_denuvo_workarounds/

Thanks in advance! I'm hoping to find the cause and fix it for good :)

(Mods, I hope this kind of post is okay? I'm not advocating piracy, as I wrote in the other post, I own the games myself)

GE proton not showing in steam play picker, POE is unplayable

~/.steam/root/compatibilitytools.d$ ls -al

total 430836

drwxr-xr-x 3 manderso manderso 4096 Mar 22 21:08 .

I've also tried where the files in Proton-5.4-GE-2 show in the compatibilitytools.d directory, but starting up Steam and clicking the "Force the user of a specific Steam play compatibility tool" will not show the new proton. What am I doing wrong here?

This is on Pop-OS 19.10, running Mesa 19.2.8, on an RX560. I wiped my previous install of Ubuntu 19.10 this afternoon, and while POE was stuttering, it was playable.

Unfortunately, I didn't look at my steamplay or driver settings before wiping.

Thanks for any help.

Wine compatible with Mac OS 10.9.5?

I'm new at this and trying to run Steam in order to play Age of Empires against my brother as we both pass the quarantine time. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, I'm unable to update my current MacBook past 10.9.5. The newest version of Wine failed for me without installing Steam at all, version 1.7.51 completed installation but wouldnt open the program, and now with Wine 2.0 I can get Steam to open, but it crashes shortly thereafter. Any advice would be appreciated -- even if it's just to say that it's hopeless :(

How would I go about getting NFS Most Wanted (2005) to work on High Sierra?

Hey guys, just thought about having a blast from the past during the quarantine. What version of wine and what dependencies should I install to be able to play the OG nfs most wanted on High Sierra? I tried the latest wine from winehq, all three versions and they just hang at the first run when it's supposed to install mono and gecko. Tried some random older versions and 4.0.1 did work but this time the game crashed on launch. Would really appreciate the help.

GPU for Linux gaming in 4k

Hello everyone. I'm building a new computer and I was wondering which GPU to choose. For context, I currently own two 4k Dell displays which I mostly use for programming and office work. But I like to play games from time to time. Since I want to do most of it on linux, which GPU should I choose? I would be going for a 2080 ti because of it's power and the cuda technology. But what about drivers? In my old GPU the AMD (well, ATI) GPU work just fine without any problems. I don't necessarily need ultra settings in games, but medium/high settings should work with > 60 fps. So, would you choose the 2080 ti to have power (and CUDA) with some hustle or a 5700 XT which will not be as powerfull. Please tell me what you think.

The performance is indeed a nightmare even if this fits to DOOM but it's not fun to play.

GPU usage 100% but 8 - 13 FPS what the hell!?

Spoiler: on Windows 10 this game does not even start for me btw.

I don't know what they screwed up but using Vulkan as API and than causing this poor performance on Linux MUST be intention I can't explain this otherwise or NVidia has something missing in their Linux driver which wouldn't surprise me either.

Issues with SKSE64 in Skyrim SE

Since Proton 5.x.x (also GE Versions) SKSE either crashes after failing to load certain plugins (Engine Fixes, RaceMenu, etc) or if I disable certain plugins the starts I load a save and after the loading screen I just get a black screen. The music still plays, but my system locks up and I have to do a hard reset. When using Proton 4.11 everything works thing with all of my mods, using the known fAudio fix and sometimes having to Alt F4 when the game freezes when exiting (but this are known issues which should have been fixed in newer Proton Versions).

Has anybody experienced similar problems?

What is thermal throttling

I have an amd 8750 and a R9 280X.

Not very recent hardware but at a beginning for say 10 minutes I am able to run doom 2016 at ultra settings with a very decent 60-70 fps (my monitor is 60, so what's wrong with that).

Using last proton and amdgpu open source drivers.

After, as I said, 10 minutes, things get hotter and I have moments, not so short, when fps drop to 20. Then I die or get severely injured because it's not very playble anymore.

Both the cpu and vga temperatures seems ok. 70 for cpu, got with command sensors after rapidly switching to a terminal. VGA temp around 75-80, by looking at radeon-tool on the other monitor.

What can be the problem? Is RAM in theory the possible cause? What else can it be?

Thanks a lot,...

(Mac) COD:WAW Sound Issues through Steam

I've been using Wine for quite some time and I've encountered plenty of bugs and issues that I was able to fix and overcome myself, albeit tedious. Last night friends mentioned hey let's play COD:WAW, they went ahead and bought it for me and gifted it to me and I'd pay them at a later date etc.

I got it working through some time just generally loading and working, played some maps, though I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the sound to work. This is the first time I've encountered this specific issue and the majority of what I see is a fix directly on Windows where you just change your sound device from 16bit to 32bit. That of course isn't the case on Mac.

I've been playing COD:WAW through Porting Kit (http://portingkit.com) and my actual Steam account which, surprisingly, works very well. Though I think this issue I'm experiencing is a global Mac wine problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

New to wine, need help accessing a game in my Steam library using wine on Mac

I downloaded wine to run Steam so I could play Spelunky on my Mac. I'm able to open Steam but none of the windows (store, library, etc) load so I can't access my games unless I click on the icon on my toolbar in the upper right hand corner of my desktop, but even then I can only see the games I have already downloaded before I did all this wine stuff. My native Steam app won't let me download Spelunky since it's only supported on Windows. Anybody have any ideas on a work around here? I'm very new to all of this.

Thanks!

Different PC and another IP. Indeed the game worked out of the box yesterday...

Can I play non-steam games through proton?

I bought GTA5 through Green Man Gaming several years ago. Any way I can "import" (not sure if that's the right term) the game into Steam and play it through Proton? I know there's a Steam version of GTA5 so that suggests it's possible. I did some googling for how to play GTA5 on Linux but all the results I found explained how to set up Wine and Lutris and all that and I was hoping there was a simpler way by using Proton.

Elite Dangerous, i3 WM &amp; multiple monitor setup - high res not supported?

Hi,

I'm running Fedora 31, AMD Radeon 5700XT and play Elite Dangerous via Steam/Proton on my three monitors setup. All is fine when I'm using Gnome (Classic): I can play the game with 3440x1440 resolution, high details - it's just great, I love it.

But when using i3 as my windows manager I can only play the game in a low resolution (1920x1080). The menu Options -> Graphics -> Display -> Resolution within the game doesn't offer higher resolutions (which it does, when I play under Gnome).

I'm configuring my monitor setup within ./config/i3/config like this:

exec --no-startup-id xrandr --output HDMI-A-2 --pos 0x0 --output HDMI-A-3 --pos 1920x0 --mode 3440x1440 --output DisplayPort-1 --pos 5360x0

Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem? Thank you!

Searching for games for 8yr old

Hi Linux gamers,

I am searching for games, that are suitable for my 8yr old kid.

Only thing i found was Abzu.

  • It should be free of violence
  • Using brain would be nice. Solving Puzzles or build thingsBut of course not too hard for that age
  • Must run on Linux (native or Proton doesn't matter to me)
  • Must support german language

It is hard to find things like that on Steam, as the filters did not help me. And hentai puzzle girl games are not what I am searching for...

If you have a few recommendations, please let me know. Thanks!

WoW and DXVK: Any way to launch Bnet launcher and WoW.exe separately?

Since yesterday, Lutris is not able to launch Battle.net app with DXVK enabled (It started not working after (I think) I switched GPU to Intel, then switched it back to NVIDIA). When I disable DXVK, Wow has extremely low fps. Is there a way to launch them in Lutris separately OR with different launch options? Because on Lutris, I installed both Battle.net and World of Warcraft to try to launch them separately, but Wow starts its own Bnet and it disconnects the other. I'm stuck in this paradox, please help me.

xbox one wireless controller wont connect

hey guys as it says above i am trying to connect my xbox one wireless controller with my linux machine currently running the most recent mint, now for whatever reason it wont connect with my actual gaming linux machine but will connect to my netbook linux machine.

so im just wondering what it could possibly be. Basically when i try to do the bluetooth connection ie i put the controller in pair mode and then select the controller on my computer. now what seems to happen is it initially connects for a few seconds cause i get the connected notification but immediately after it says disconnected, while the controller stays in pairing mode.

now i would just connect it via usb but all my ports are taken AND the controllers usb port is broken so i have to do it via bluetooth.

i even tried this xboxdrv program thing but for whatever reason im getting stuck on actuating a service my machine keeps saying it doesnt exist.

this is the code i am trying to use

sudo systemctl enable xboxdrv.service and it returns this

Failed to enable unit: Unit file xboxdrv.service does not exist.

thanks in advance for any help

Game engine / editor / sdk for Linux (nav mesh update)

Hi - I've been working on a free pluggable / ECS (Entity Component System) based engine for Linux (www.fireflytech.org) in my spare time. It's available as an .AppImage (currently have only built / tested on Ubuntu 18.04 and CentOS 8). It's a work in progress but is a plugin-based editor / engine, built using c++, cmake and opengl 3.3 core profile. I use Qt for the editor gui (only) and SDL2 for a x-platform rendering window / context. It's getting slightly less unusable with each release so wanted to share in case it's of interest.

This week added support for componentised navigation meshes, crowds, agents and obstacles (using Mikko Mononen's excellent recst library):

https://youtu.be/FZaHrKoGoKw

A video of the 1 minute Linux ECS plugin creation (if you want to add your own components and systems): https://youtu.be/E5DEkip51s8 (NB. You need to set the path to your ECS plugin as demo'd towards the end of the video so the engine can find / load your plugin).

Now working on publishing to Android (OpenGL ES 3.2) which is very close :-)

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Road To The North: no flashlight ?

Hello,

I remember playing other STALKER mods 1 ou 2 years ago without problem. But here, with wine-staging 5.3, on Fedora 31, with NVIDIA drivers 440.64 on a RTX2060 , I can't get the flashlight to work: I press the key for the flashlight, I hear its sound, I see a brief flash but it doesn't light anything after that.

I have tried the rendering modes available to the games: DX8, DX9 , DX10 and DX11 (I have the DXVK 1.5 installed); DX10 and DX11 crash with an error in D3DX11GetImageInfoFromMemory / function CRendeer::texture_load / file ..\xRenderDX10\dx10Texture.cpp for the ui_font_hud_01.dds file.

DX8 and the various DX9 modes work, but I don't have the flashlight...

Anybody has an idea? Thanks!

Doom 64 works great in Proton

I know a lot of people are upset about Doom Eternal not working, but just wanted to point this out since it was the other Doom release today. It seems like some people are having trouble with Nvidia cards, but it works perfectly on my Intel HD Graphics and many are reporting that it works on AMD as well. Oddly it worked fine on first launch with the default settings, but I had to manually set it to 5.0-4 on subsequent launches.

Why asking questions here about Linux gaming is forbidden?

I had a previous issue with a controller that didn't work fine on Linux, and I thought that asking here is the right place for it, because it is related to gaming on Linux, but it got deleted, because this subreddit is not a support forum. I know it is not a support forum, but r/linux_gaming_help is almost abandoned, and I have to request to post. Something is wrong here?! It is like if I have a question, there is no place to go. Also, posting anything to r/linux is almost impossible, because they deleted all my previous posts about Linux. People say that the Linux community is so great, and helpful, but reality is a different thing.

I know that this post will be deleted, or drawn with downvotes, but I had to get that out of my chest, because I am so frustrated.

Rebinding keys for company of heroes 2 in steam

Hello,

In coh2 the standard key for the map is quite badly bound even though the map mode is quite handy, but until +- last summer, the last time I played it, it was quite easy to swap keys with "xmodmap -e".

Apparently this now doesn't work anymore, so I guess either steam or the game is able to override that command, but I have absolutely no idea how.

Is anyone able to help me? Thanks.

Using Proton for non-Steam games?

Hey folks, quick question. I've been using Linux for a looong time, so I'm looking for technical detail here. For games that I don't run on Steam, I use the latest WINE+DXVK... works really well.

In the past, like in the first few months of DXVK, I have seen some people using Proton to run external games (not on Steam), but it was complicated and required a lot of hacking about.

The other day I installed Glorious Eggroll's Proton 5.4-GE beta or whatever for a Steam game that benefits from it (Warframe). But now that people are rolling tarballs like this, is there a simple way to use that for non-Steam games?

For instance, when I run Elder Scrolls Online, I use wine-5.4-staging and DXVK 1.5.5 in a isolated prefix:

WINEPREFIX=/home/merc/ESO wine C:\blah\ESO.exe

If I wanted to try the Proton 5.4-GE tarball to set up another prefix for ESO (using Proton external to Steam), how would I go about that?

Thanks very much for any info you guys can give.

Do you think it will be possible to run Nucleus Co-Op via WINE?

Hey there,

Nucleus Co-Op is a tool that allows running multiple instances of the same game and lets people to play in split-screen mode. As it is great for playing Windows games that otherwise don't feature such mode, I wonder if it is/will be possible to make it run via WINE? Thanks!

Failback black screen

Hello:

I purchased Failback on Steam yesterday:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/864540/Fallback/

But I'm not able to make it run on Linux Mint 19.3. The game start just fine and I can modify the settings but when starting a new game a black screen appears. I have tried with different Proton versions with no luck.

This game doesn't have any review in ProtonDB, and I have run the game in windows and after the new game button a video appears, so I assume that maybe some vide codecs are missing or something like that.

Could you please advise how can I trace the game in order to verify the reasons of this blac screen? any of you have tried this particular game?

At least in Spain is on sale 90% off

No game on ANY platform has done this as well.

I know it is elderly, but it is free and Open (no revenue here,) a complete game (3-4 game types depending how you count, FPS, RTS, Tactics, Melee) with clan system, etc.

The Developers play! A regular ('CIA...') compiled 64-bit packages for Ubuntu, etc.

I want a western hemisphere group of servers!

A couple more Open Source devs that like the game can take it to the newest code/engine.

That feature sharpen up everything in gaming at least on the games on Windows and the performance was great. Are there anyone working on such filters on Linux? Ik that it was originally an AMD feature and therefore it's open source.

Nes emulator on Ubuntu 18.04 possible?

I would like to be able to play nes games on my Ubuntu 18.04 desktop. Bonus points for being able to launch from Kodi. I have tried add ons with Kodi and have had no luck. Followed several online tutorials and just can't seem to get it to work. Is there something else I can try? Does steam integrate with Kodi and can I play old nes games? Any help appreciated

Is Anyone Buying Doom Eternal Tomorrow/Already Pre-Purchased It?

So, it looks like the RE3 Demo is working on Linux, which bodes well for the full game working. Well, Doom Eternal, which seems to be amazing from the reviews I've seen, is releasing in a few hours. Is anyone buying it tomorrow to test on Linux, or already preordered it? Thought it'd be nice to see if it works on day one, which I kind of suspect it will, as DOOM 2016 is a whitelisted Proton title, and iD's Doom devs are rather Linux-friendly, and some of them are "Linux Heads" themselves.

New WoW Patch (3/19/2020) Crashes game on launch

I'm looking to see what happened to the game now that I with the new patch that launched it seems to crash. As of now I'm currently running of Lutris with the lutris-nofshack-4.15-x86_64 runner because that runner seems to fix the issue with multiple key presses not registering. The Crash is as follows:

ERROR #132 (0x85100084) Fatal exception!

"The memory could not be "read""

I do remember when a similar issue happened we just downgraded the battle.net folder in the wow directory or deleted it and didn't let it patch it worked, but I'm looking for that post to clarify that was the case before just removing files.

Anyone else running into this issue and have any work arounds? I know blizzard doesn't support us running on linux so we have to figure it out on our own.

What I've tried

I have tried verifying the integrity of the game cache, and it all looks fine.

The common solution online seems to be setting the following environment variable, either by launch setting via Steam or just export:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libopenal.so.1 %command%.

I tried setting this both via Steam and in a bash environment to no avail. I did verify that the file existed in /usr/lib32. It's also worth noting that setting this in a terminal environment yields the following message every time I run a command: ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libopenal.so.1' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored.. The Arch wiki said this can be safely ignored, though.

Another suggestion is:

LD_PRELOAD='./libcxxrt.so:/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6:/usr/lib32/libopenal.so.1' %command% but this similarly did nothing.

I also tried including the name of the library mentioned in the dmesg output to the LD_PRELOAD argument, but that also did nothing.

Furthermore, some people suggested that on CPUs with more than 8 threads, it was necessary to call the binary via taskset. I did try this, despite only having 4 threads, but that didn't work.

System info

Solus 64-bit, kernel ver. 5.5.7. Processor is an Intel Core i5-8250U. I have 8GB of RAM. Not sure what else is relevant, but I'm happy to provide details as needed. It looks like I may need to use Wine at this point.

I just played through the entire Resident Evil 3 demo on Ubuntu perfectly fine

AFAIK, it works straight out of the box. HOWEVER, I did recently play through RE:2, and for that I needed to install this thing.

Not sure if that installer affects all Wine programs or just RE:2, so if you can't get RE:3 to work it might be a good idea to try installing that.

The only issue I noticed was that graphics were set to the lowest setting by default because the game detected my GPU as having 0 VRAM. This was a problem with RE:2 as well.

Low performance after reinstall

I was playing The Talos Principle in my laptop. It worked out of the box with the default configuration, so I assume it is not a hardware specs problem. I was using Linux Mint 19.1.

After a failed update that messed my computer I had to format and reinstall. Now I am running Linux Mint 19.3, but the game has several problems. It crashes often on startup and it runs sometimes with very low performance and occasional freezes.

I would really appreciate any help, have no idea about how to solve the problem. I have installed the graphic drivers

apt install libvulkan1 mesa-vulkan-drivers vulkan-utils

and added this command to the launch options to make sure the game uses the GPU.

DRI_PRIME=1 %command%

My GPU is a hybrid AMD:

Struggling a bit with Nvidia drivers and Optimus here...

Debian 10 user here.

I tried to set up steam for fun and explore linux gaming for a change. Honestly its kind of a mixed bag. Hardly any of my windows games are supported and a few ones that I tried with the emulation tools didn't work at all. Guess that's why they are listed as unsupported. Half-life 2 runs alright though, if a bit slow considering its age. But I imagine its probably fine if I was using my nvidia chipset.

OK. I can install the nvidia drivers just fine. I have bumblebee installed ok. When I go to install primus to allow switching it throws up:

"The NVIDIA driver that is being installed (version 390.116) does not match the nvidia kernel module currently loaded (version 418.74)."

So it looks like its trying to break my driver install. I actually let this pass through the first time and of course it broke everything so I had to go back and purge all my nvidia packages and start over. Looks like its using my Intel HD graphics by default. I don't think I can switch without primus. What I would like to do is just run purely off the dedicated chipset from boot. Is there an easy way to do that? I don't care about battery life currently because this laptop has a weak battery and is plugged in 24/7 anyways. Also is it correct that if I use gnome I'll see a performance hit because of the compositing being used? I installed Xfce but I honestly don't see any performance difference between Gnome and Xfce running on the intel graphics.

Also thanks to anyone that responds. You redditors always warm my day up with your helpful responses!

Lutris installer hangs after directory select on GOG games

Hi! I've been using Lutris for months with no problems whatsoever, but recently I started to be unable to install GOG games. When I select the installation directory the window doesn't advance to the download section of the installation.

What am I doing wrong and how can I fix this?

Anything else related to modern games?

Is navi (5700 xt) stable on linux?

Hi everyone! Long story short, i have a 2070 super atm and running arch linux as my sole distro and operating system for awhile now. Everything has been running great. Along with my gsync display. Lately ive been thinking about picking up a 5700 xt since it offers similar performance to my 2070 super but to have full linux integration and never really have to worry about nvidia supporting X, Y, or Z. Ive already purchased a new freesync display a month ago in anticipation. Which ironically runs great with my 2070 super in untested gsync compatibility mode.

Today I actually pulled the trigger and order a sapphire 5700 xt pulse on amazon. But as I was reading a post on phoronix, I came across three freedesktop links regarding navi stability:

These issues appear to be months old with complaints coming in just a few hours ago. Even with current 5.5 kernel and 5.6RC. They concerned me enough I cancelled my order on amazon. These issues seem awfully similar to issues windows users have been complaining about and its made me deeply concerned about navis state on linux.

So i came here to ask those with 5700 xts, how has it been running for you? On phoronix all I can find is vega and polaris users talking about how it runs well for them and the few 5700 xt owners complained of those issues.

Shouldn't Lutris force ALL downloads to have a checksum?

I'm using it for the first time and it feels like a security issue waiting to happen. Even if you trust Lutris' infrastructure 100%, you still have other forms of network/local attacks or external machines getting compromised. One of the installers even downloaded files from Digital Ocean (CDN or VPS).

OT: I also wished they went with a more "reproducible" format, and that you could edit the installers easily before clicking on start

Far Cry Primal... Stumped

Anybody have any luck getting Far Cry Primal to work on Linux? I'm sure I must be doing something wrong cuz I can't seem to get it to work... I looked on Lutris and there's 3 different options: a DXVK version, a Steam version and an installer for UPlay. I tried just installing the game directly from Steam and then install UPlay from Lutris, but the game says UPlay is not installed and UPlay can't find the game. I tried installing UPlay directly to the Far Cry Primal folder, but it says there's already files in that folder and UPlay won't install correctly. Any suggestions?

Psychonauts on Arch Linux

Purchased Psychonauts on gog.com. Can't get the linux version to work so I have the windows version a shot with wine 5.4 on arch linux. Upon launch I'm greeted by a window telling me to install DirectX 9.0c.

Tried running it from lutris and it tells me it can't find a 32bpp display.....even after I install DX9 in lutris.

Has anyone had success with getting psychonauts to work in on WINE?

Been out of the PC world for a while....Hardware suggestions?

I dabbled with Knoppix in the late 90s/early 2000s and loved Linux back then, but I was never smart enough to figure out how to run games on it so I stuck with Win 98/XP/etc. Fast forward to now - I ditched winblows about 5 years, bought a NUC and installed Mint on it and have never looked back...pretty much every computer device in my house has some flavor of Linux on it now (I'm sure you are all aware of the addiction haha).

NUC under Mint is running great - have a nice DOSBox setup going, playing tons of games from GoG that run natively on Linux, etc. but it's hardware capabilities are lacking for heavy gaming. I'm looking to get back into PC gaming online and would like to build a rig.

The problem is that I'm so old the only graphics card I can name off the top of my head is a 9800 :)

I've noticed nVidia has something called RTX out that is supposedly amazing. Are the Linux drivers up-to-snuff? Any motherboards I should focus on that would be particularly best with Linux?

A game pad oriented DE?

Is there any viable game pad oriented desktop environment, like no keyboard needed at all?

I guess steam big picture / steam OS is what comes to mind first, but its not open source (which I dont care license wise, just that its not as portable) and isnt really a desktop environment. You cant access a lot of settings for example. Oh and you cannot really login directly to steam big picture on other distros.

Speaking of which, a log in / display manager that supports joystick input would be cool too...

I also know that the Atari VCS (yeah:/) is also working on such thing, but still the same problems as the steam big picture, with added support for some system settings and some web apps. But thats not here now and quite frankly I wouldnt expect it to come any time soon.

The last 2 I know of are emulation-station and kodi which can work together but honestly setting up from scratch is time consuming and even then youd miss some functionality such as an acceptable web browser and the problem of a login manager persists.

So overall my question is: Is there any game pad / couch oriented GNU + Linux desktop? And if not then is there anyone working on such thing. If the answer to that is no too then what do you think is the best solution? (Other than getting a wireless mouse that is)

Problem with ANNO 1701 using WINE on High Sierra Mac OS together with Hamachi

Hi All,
During the coronavirus, my friends and I are trying to find ways to enjoy ourselves a little bit. Therefore, we are looking to play ANNO 1701 using Hamachi/Gameranger using Mac High Sierra and wine.
We have all installed ANNO 1701 AD. [GOG] using wine, then we all installed Hamachi on high sierra.
However, we are unable to connect/find each other games (we are playing from different homes but are connected using Hamachi). How to solve this? (we are no computer experts, so we don't have any clue)?
The same holds for age of empires III, of which we all have the mac OS version (does not work with Hamachi and Gameranger).
We have thought of the following possibilities:
Something with network properties? I remember that on Windows, you had to do something with the LAN settings and Hamachi.
Use gameranger in combination with wine? But how?
Something with the router?
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Trying to WINE/Proton Hammer Editor on Ubuntu 18.04

Hammer itself is NOT a game, however it is a tool used for some videogames to make maps. I figured you guys&gals might like taking a stab at this puzzle. I do apologize if it is too far off topic.

So, some background. A friend wanted me to give mapping a spin with hammer for some CS:GO mapping. Normally(when attempting this the way they'd like) you'd be on a windows installation, and you'd just download the SDK, and run hammer.

Now, I have a windows installation, but linux is my main. Obviously I would prefer to use it. So I set to work trying to get hammer to work through wine.

When running it in my two prefixs, it whines that it's missing DLLs and can't launch; specifically, tier0.dll and vstdlib.dll (error here). Obviously you can't quite just search these up and download them (more times than not).

Luckily I had a friend handy and asked him for the DLLs, and he supplied me with them, only to be met with this error.

a few days later I came back, and thought, "What about using Proton to run it?"

So I went ahead and passed it through proton via:

dovahkin@Wolfpack-Alpha:~/steamdir/steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/$ PROTON_LOG=1 STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH=~/.proton/ ~/steamdir/steam/steamapps/common/Proton\ 4.2/proton run bin/hammer.exe

Got this response.

Goes without saying hammer is not meant to be ran on linux, and I am doing something completely outside the lines, but I'd like to try!

How to run Attack on Titan 2 under wine

After one and a half days of rather intense debugging, I've finally got it working! Here are the steps:

  • Create a 64-bit wine prefix
  • winetricks qasf
  • Copy wmvcore.dll, wmasf.dll and mfperfhelper.dll from a windows 10 installation to your wine prefix/windows/system32, and set them all to native under winecfg
  • Install the media foundation libraries
  • Apply this patch I wrote to wine, autoreconf, build it, and either use that version of wine, or copy dlls/nullvidc/nullvidc.dll to wineprefix/windows/system32
  • Under regedit, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32, create a new string value, name is vidc.WMV3 and value is nullvidc.dll
  • winetricks xact_x64 (faudio currently crashes)
  • Optionally replace all wmv's under FILE to be MOVIE/LOGO_KT.wmv, as otherwise you'll be staring at a blank screen for however long it takes for the video to finish
  • winetricks d3dcompiler_43 and install DXVK (optional, but improves performance)
  • Either use vanilla wine, or use wine-staging without the raw input patches. There's still significant input issues, but you'll at least be able to move your mouse. Probably better to use a controller though.

No cutscenes, performance is really bad, and it's nearly unplayable with a mouse and keyboard. But it's technically playable now!

I'll probably wait until media foundation support is properly integrated into wine before writing proper patches to submit to wine in order to make this game playable without all of these steps.

Driver Parallel Lines Gamepad Support

I got DPL on GOG for cheap and thought I'd give it a try on my Mac. Installed via CrossOver, all dandy. Game runs super smooth.

So I thought, why not try use a gamepad? The game does have native gamepad support (or so I'm told), so I connected my Logitech F310 to see what happens. Well, nothing happens. The game doesn't recognise it.

I heard it runs well with an Xbox controller -- is there any hope my F310 will do the trick natively?

Far Cry 5/New Dawn Tutorial, Co Op Also works

First you need to get the newest wine tkg from github.

Then you need to install uplay in a wineprefix, also dxvk (can be done using winetricks), then create a script to launch uplay in the right prefix, preferably with esync of fsync.

Then download far cry 5/new dawn, and create another script file to launch far cry 5/new dawn, again preferably with esync/fsync.

Normal gameplay should work by just launching the script.

To make Co op work, you need to enable the uplay overlay, then open uplay first, open the uplay chat window, then open the other script for far cry 5/new dawn, then the other person invites you, and you accept the invite using the uplay chat window. (This is because the uplay overlay doesn't work and just gets stuck on top of the game.), You can also invite the other player but there will be an anoying gray bar at the bottom saying that you invited them, and you can't get rid of it.

Also yes, the game runs a little worse with the overlay enabled, but you can't play co op without it.

My script files here on github for the people who need them: https://github.com/ThunderBoyU/Winescriptfiles

Hope i helped someone with this.

Help with running Roller Coaster Tycoon on Mac OS 10.14.6 Mojave

Hey all,

I had previously purchased/downloaded an original RCT file from GOG games and it previously worked using Wine on a previous version of Mac...but something about Mojave doesn't like it. I already went through some troubleshooting and downloaded XQuartz, and the game at least opens now, but the graphics are all messed up....as you can see in the video.

Is there any sort of easy fix here?? I'm finding myself in a wormhole of adding packages and edits etc and I just want to play the freakin game!

Need suggestions for games, but it is tricky to find one because of my requirements.

My situation is tricky, so help me out! The game must be lightweight, 64bit, no Steam.

I have an old laptop running CentOS7 and I'd like to play some games on it. I'd like to be able to buy and download from a website, because compiling and packaging Steam for my OS is too difficult a task for me. Needs to be 64bit because I only have 64bit wine in repository. Needs to be lightweight because of my old specs: i5 4200m, 6gb ram.

If you have any suggestions (if such a game even exists lol) help me out please :)

Setting Linux Mint Up For Gaming Tutorial

Hi everyone.

So I recently was testing Linux Mint out for gaming, and I did not realise how much installation you actually need to do to get it set up ready for gaming, DXVK, Wine, Esync etc.

Well certainly in comparison to a distribution such as Pop OS which is what I usually recommend to new users of Linux who want to game.

Anyway, here is a video tutorial on what I actually did.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyzhIeQL1uM&feature=youtu.be

And for people who prefer written instructions, see below.

NVIDIA GPU Terminal installation:

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

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt update

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-440 libnvidia-gl-440 libnvidia-gl-440:i386

sudo apt install libvulkan1 libvulkan1:i386

Reboot to apply settings.

AMD GPU Terminal installation:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kisak/kisak-mesa

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

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

sudo apt install mesa-vulkan-drivers mesa-vulkan-drivers:i386

Reboot to apply settings.

ENABLE ESYNC

Adding DefaultLimitNOFILE=524288 to both the system.conf and user.conf files found at /etc/systemd will enable Esync.

Reboot to apply.

INSTALL WINE

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

sudo apt-key add winehq.key sudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the below two records and save.

deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main

deb https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Emulators:/Wine:/Debian/xUbuntu_18.04/ ./

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys DFA175A75104960E

sudo apt update sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

INSTALL LUTRIS

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

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install lutris

INSTALL STEAM AND ENABLE PROTON FOR ALL GAMES

sudo apt install steam

Once installed, sign in and navigate to Steam / Settings / Steam Play, tick the Enable Steam Play for all other titles and click OK once done.

INSTALL GAMEMODE

sudo apt install meson libsystemd-dev pkg-config ninja-build git libdbus-1-dev libinih-dev

git clone https://github.com/FeralInteractive/gamemode.git

cd gamemode

git checkout 1.5.1

./bootstrap.sh

Reboot to apply.

Sorry it is so long winded, but that's what you have to do in Linux Mint.

I always appreciated constructive criticism as well :)

Road redemption issues

This is my PC: Ryzen 3 2200G (Vega 8 iGPU) 8 GB RAM 3000MHz dual channel (64MB are only used for VRAM) OS: Manjaro Gnome kyria

So here are a couple of things that are grinding my gears since I first installed the game: 1) Every time I launch it, a message pops up saying that the game is not responding and if I want either wait or force quit. If I don't choose anything in matter of seconds the game starts normally 2) Now most of the times I paly this game I have YouTube in Firefox in the background playing music. While music is playing, if the game runs into a loading screen, it will freeze the entire system and the music will be put in that annoying loop where the last sound that played get repeated to infinity. There have been times where I left it and it got back to normal, but it doesn't happen very often and I'm getting really sick of this.

Do you have anything to suggest ? Thanks in advance

GPU passthough/looking glass help

Hello everybody.

I might need help with understanding the gpu passtrough and looking glass on my pop_os.

The Setup:

I want to play windows games like R6 on my pop_os. Now, you can not really do that natively. So I used google and Youtube and find out that I can use something called looking glass. And That I need to make a gpu passtrough.

The thing that I dont really understand is, how many GPUs do I need? I have only one, my RX560 and Ryzen 5 1600 as CPU.

Is it possible to use looking glass only with one GPU. Would the VM be working sort of like real machine (I know there will be performance hit)? And I dont need another set of mouse and keyboard right. :-)

Thank you for your help

Borderlands 3 Proton 5.0.4 - can't connect to friends

I'm having a weird issue. I can connect to shift gearbox, but when joining friends I just get 'joining group...' for a while and then a connection error.

What's weird as well is that I can't view my friends' stats in the social.. it's all 0%.
I've tried setting my DMZ.. port forwarded all necessary ports. I'm running out of ideas.

I'm running Fedora 31. And I can find people in matchmaking games :/

Gecko Package?

Hello, i am a complete noob when it comes to linux, so sorry for the dumb question but why does PlayOnLinux prompt everytime something like gecko package not found (and another one too, cant remember the name, there are always 2 popups), so it downloads it very single time i am installing something new and as my internet is very slow, it is very frustrating.

Can i do something to install this package once and for all?

Hope i explained my problem clearly, english is not my first language so sorry about that.

Thanks

Why Do Several DLL-Injection Mods Not Work via Wine?

Several games have mods that require DLL-Injection, such as BetterSADX for Sonic Adventure, and most notably FAR for NieR:Automata. However, as far as I can tell, some DLL-Injection mods do work. For instance, in my testing my mods for Fallout: New Vegas all worked fine in the past. To my knowledge, they use some form of DLL-Injection. I also think that Wine allows DLL overrides using winecfg, but as far as I know when used with mods, specifically BetterSADX, it results in a crash.

I'm aware that the likes of FAR doesn't work on Linux. I'm not exactly asking for support on how to get them to work, but I'd like an idea as to why they don't work. Maybe even an indication on whether or not it could be possible in the future to implement it, or if it's something we may never get. I realise that in regards to gaming under Wine this is related to mods, which are unofficial on Windows and aren't guaranteed to work all the time on the target platform let alone under a layer like Wine.

I'd love to be able to play Sonic Adventure with BetterSADX or NieR:Automata with FAR so I can have some HD texture packs, which is what prompted this post. I remember reading a while ago that specifically related to FAR, there was an issue with some low-level DXGI stuff (very technical, I know) that DXVK doesn't implement. I could be wrong here though.

Basically, why does DLL-Injection for mods sometimes not work, and could mods like FAR ever work under Wine?

Looking to buy a pre-built desktop for steam (dota2)

Hi all,

Covid-19 helping, I'm stuck at home. My macbook pro 2016 battery goes down when I'm playing dota2 with a 27" external screen plugged in (screen is a HP Z27n. It works fine using the built-in screen, but using the external screen results in more than 61W being used, which is the limit of the charger).

I'm looking to (quickly) buy a desktop computer to play on instead of the macbook pro.

  • do you have recommandations for builds I can find on Amazon (or other retailer available in Europe)

  • what's the current state of AMD vs NVidia for graphic processing? And performance with Steam? (I'm really out of the loop w.r.t. Vulkan nouveau and all that jazz)

Thanks!

What prophylactic measures do you take when playing online?

Do you containerize the game client or Steam, using firejail or another containerizing tool?

What about games that infuriatingly rely on P2P, where it's easy for a malicious player to sniff your connection? Do you try to obfuscate your IP?

Do you generally just roll with it? Or do you prefer to have a quarantined box that you only play games on?

Do you avoid online games altogether?

How is mod support on Linux?

I'm upgrading my PC, and since I will have a bit of headroom on performance, I feel like now is the time to switch my primary boot drive to Linux.

Those of you who run a shared Steam library between Linux and Windows, how do you like it?

Title says it all, just wondering how people are getting by with utilizing shared Steam libraries.

I just set mine up and tested a few games out and honestly can't really tell that it's running off an NTFS filesystem. In some instances, it's actually solved a lot of problems for me in specific titles.

Here's the guide I followed to ensure ntfs permissions were setup correctly fwiw. I also made sure the symlink for the compdata folder was setup correctly.

I know that NTFS read/write speeds obviously won't be as fast on Linux compared to Windows but, again, based on my limited testing I haven't been able to tell the difference.

Anyone else have any thoughts or potential issues that I should look out for in the future?

Continue Posting PlayOnLinux Guides?

TLDR; Should I keep testing games in POL and posting guides even though Proton and Lutris are handling most Windows games?

I have spent the last 7 years testing my library of Windows games in PlayOnLinux/Wine an posting step-by-step guides every week. This is my side hobby and I really love learning which games run and how to run them. Not to mention discover new indie games that may never get a Linux port.

Since Valve has pushed their fork of Wine (Proton) with a lot of success and Lutris is handling scripted installers and GOG gaming... where does that put PlayOnLinux?

There is still a large community for PlayOnLinux and it still receives updated versions of Wine and updates to Components (Packages, DLLs). I only test with Manual installations and have found that 95% of my games run GREAT with Wine and DXVK. As my untested list of games dwindles, I have focused on itch.io games, student projects, demos and betas.

I feel PlayOnLinux has succeeded in the test-of-time, but not with ease-of-use like Steam or Lutris.

Do you think there is still a need for gaming with a Wine frontend like PlayOnLinux and how-to-guides?

Sound quality of Arctis 7 on Fedora 31

I just recently got myself a pair of the Steelseries Arctis 7 headphones and am a little concerned with the sound/mic quality. While the headphones/mic works ootb the quality seems a little lacking. The speakers seem like they need to be cranked up to nearly max at all times and my friends say that the mic sounds pretty gainy/low quality.

Is there something special I need to do to set them up to make them sound better? I was under the impression that pulseaudio was up to date enough to have good support for the Arctis headphones.

Does anyone else have experience with this? Otherwise I might return them. If that's the case does anyone have good recommendations on headphones?

Probably a stupid question but can I run BO2 Plutonium on Wine on MacOS Catalina?

Hey r/wine_gaming!

I've wanted to play Plutonium for so long and tried installing on an old Toshiba Satellite but kept getting timed out because that computer can't pick up 5G WiFI (I don't have Ethernet available).

However my MacBook can. It can also run CS:GO and modded Minecraft just fine. I tried BootCamp but I didn't wanna lose half of my hard drive to booting Windows just to play CoD.

I did a little research and found that Catalina can't run 32 bit applications but don't know if Plutonium is 32 bit or in fact 64 bit. In theory 64 bit apps should be fine and might work, however I need validation before I do anything.

Thanks in advance!

Is it normal for NVidia GPUs to have overfilled memory?

Hey there. Was wondering about that question in title, mainly because dualbooting with Win10 made me realise that, while performance in games is understandably different between the two OSes, Linux has that weird issue with VRAM being constantly overfilled. The PC here has a GTX 1050Ti with 4GB VRAM, as well as 8GB RAM, and runs proprietary drivers. Affected games include, but not limited to: Elite Dangerous, No Man's Sky, Rocket League, Warframe, Risk of Rain 2; although 4 out of 5 these titles are being run with Proton, with Rocket League being the only exception until recently. So, on the issue: while playing stuff on Win10, the GPU only had its memory filled by 60-80% as reported by the task manager, and OBS could use the hardware encoder at any time regardless of VRAM/RAM load (even with full RAM). The memory usage changed depending on graphics settings of games, as expected. On Linux across multiple distros, however, after 10 minutes of running any decently-demanding 3D game, the VRAM usage tops off at 99% as reported by nvidia-settings, and freezes there. It happens always, regardless of games' graphics settings, and regardless of anything else (firefox?) running in background. On top of that, OBS could only start using the hardware encoder if both RAM and VRAM have at least 1-2GBs free, otherwise fails with an error that is described on the internet as OBS not having enough RAM. Well, back to the question then - is it normal to have overfilled VRAM with proprietary NVidia drivers?

Borderlands 3 Co-Op

I have played through all the Borderlands games with my daughter using only a single Steam account. All of them have worked perfectly until Borderlands 3. Tested over the weekend using the "LAN" settings. Each computer see's the other game running, but when connecting it "times out"

In the past I have been able to successfully run each Borderlands using Steam Offline, or one Steam is online (host) and the other is offline (guest). Both are on the internet.

  • Borderlands 1
  • Borderlands 2
  • Borderlands Pre-Sequel

The key is to sign into Steam with your account online with the first computer. Launch Borderlands

Then sign into Steam on the with the same account on the second computer, then set Steam offline. Launch Borderlands and set network to "LAN" and connect to the online host.

This worked even with Pre-Sequel which was a Native Port

Not sure if they changed something or the fact that we are using GloriousEggRolls Proton fork?

Can anyone else confirm if you can connect in this same fashion?

Game suggestions for integrated graphics

Hi All,

Considering that it looks like we're all going to be spending quite a lot of time sitting at home, I think I'd like to get into a bit of gaming.

I really enjoy creative/builder/survival/puzzle type games as opposed to action/combat oriented stuff. Some of my favorite games in the past have been Myst/Riven, Oblivion, Minecraft.

The catch is that my current computer is a laptop with Intel integrated graphics (and not a particularly new one either):

  • i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz
  • Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (Intel HD 4400 I think)
  • 8 GB ram

So, does anyone have a suggestion for any games that I might enjoy that would be able to run on my computer?

I need a tiny bit of help regarding the TUI

The situation is simple:

I need 6 sets of 6 literals each. Those literals must be logically united in the scale of set, sets must be very different and literals within the set should be very easy to distinguish (they will be used as indexes-coordinates).

At this moment I have:

    _literals[0] = {"1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6"};
    _literals[1] = {"A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F"};
    _literals[2] = {"", "", "", "", "", ""};
    _literals[3] = {"", "", "", "", "", ""};
    _literals[4] = {"", "", "", "$", "", ""};
    _literals[5] = {"+", "-", "", "", "", "="};    

I especially don't like chess figurines.

Do you have ideas?

P.S. Why this subreddit? Because this program is game, it will work under Linux and I haven't found more adequate subreddit.

Multi monitor VSync

Hi,

First of all, I always play with VSync on. Always did it because for me the stuttering is unbearable and since I have bought a G-Sync display I have never even thought of turning it off.

When playing games through Wine (or Proton) some games run at my main monitor refresh rate (100fps) while some other locks to 60, which is the refresh rate of my second monitor.

In particular I have experienced something strange with League of Legends, old versions of the Lutris installer locked the game to 60, the newer ones locks it to 100

I now am experiencing this issue in particular with Payday 2, I am playing the Proton version (Proton-5.1-GE-2) because the native wouldn't even allow me to use greater resolutions then 1920x1080 on my multi monitor setup, but it locks down VSync maximum fps.

Why does this happen? Is there any fix?

Running Rainbow 6 siege on Linux

Show gpu temperature in overlay for proton games

Is there a good way to show gpu temperature information in the overlay for games in steams proton layer? I tried DXVK_HUD and it works for fps and other gpu statistics, but not temperature. Gallium hud only works for opengl titles.

It would be pretty handy, as i have a somewhat loud RX 5700 card that needs a customized fan curve for different games to not be annoying.

Atelier Ryza black screen after developer splash logos

When I first tried running the game I got a white screen after the developer splash logos. I did some research and found a way to fix it putting this "d3d9.deferSurfaceCreation = True" in dxvk.conf in the directory of atelier ryza. But I now get a black screen that turns white if I tab out and back in.

Im on manjaro

Is there any way to play a Steam game under proton if it has a Linux version?

set xbox 360 controller config like 8bitdo n30 pro

hi all, I have an xbox 360s (bluetooth) controller that i can't get to work with don't starve. The game detects the Left-Trigger key always pressed.

Subsequently I tried to use the 8Bitdo N30 Pro joystick and everything worked perfectly, so I investigated using the KDE "Joystick" program and I found that the two joysticks have a different mapping: for example the X button of the xbox controller is the button 5, while the button located in the same position in the 8bitdo controller (Y) is button 3.

Also what worries me most is that the left trigger is mapped on axis 3 in the 8bitdo controller but is mapped on axis 5 in the xbox controller! I believe it is precisely this that prevents me from playing because any key I want to press in the game is always detected the left trigger.

Anyone know how to change the xbox joystick mapping to match the 8bitdo one?

Borderlands 3 online play on Linux?

Hey there I am seeking for a confirmation if it generally works or not.

I know Borderlands 3 works on Linux with some media foundation tweaks also with Proton since I bought the game today and played it on Steam and applied the fixes to make the intro videos work.

However I wanted to play with my friends (also on Steam) but I can not connect to SHiFT and always get a Network Error and can not change my "privacy" settings beyond Local only or LAN. Not open for all, not invitations only and not friends only. Also via Social -> SHiFT it tells me I am in offline mode.

The issue seems to be that I am unable to connect to the SHiFT Servers and therefore unable to play with my Friends at all.

I did a bit of research and found out Windows guys also have a lot of trouble getting online in SHiFT one of my friends did faced this issue too. However it was solvable for her by installing the free Golden Weapon Pack Skin DLC. And un-select it again in the DLC settings in Steam, restart BL3 and was able to join the party of another friend of mine.

Tried the same but no luck whatsoever.

Can anyone confirm SHiFT working on Linux inside BL3 or online play in general, is there some sort of Anti CHeat preventing the whole thing? Denuvo seems to work since I can start a single player game, run the Benchmark and such.

BL2 via Proton plus SHiFT works fine btw.

Tutorial On Running Borderlands 3 Using Steam Proton

Hi everyone.

Since Borderlands 3 is now no-longer an exclusive to the Epic Game Store :)

I was curious on how to get the game working on Steam using Proton, and as expected I had to do some tweaking to get the cutscenes working and progress the campaign.

So this is how I got it working.

Video tutorial:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_3efgSkJSc

Text instructions:

Install Python2

Arch based distributions via Terminal: sudo pacman -S python2

Ubuntu based distributions via Terminal: sudo apt install python2

Install first Media Foundation Wine Workaround

https://github.com/z0z0z/mf-install

You will need to download and extract the zip file, and then open up a terminal in the extracted folder with the mf-install.sh file inside.

Type the following into the terminal that corresponds to where the game is installed, so for me it is: WINEPREFIX="/home/ryanj/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/397540/pfx" ./mf-install.sh

Download second Media Foundation Wine Workaround

https://github.com/z0z0z/mf-installcab

Again, download and extract the zip file, and open up a terminal in the folder that has the install-mf-64.sh file.

Only this time, type instead the following into the terminal line: WINEPREFIX="/home/ryanj/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/397540/pfx" ./install-mf-64.sh

Once again, make sure to reference your games installation path.

Finally, inside the same folder will be a mfplat.dll file, so copy that to the games installation path.

In my case it is: /home/ryanj/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 3/

Once done, the game is all set up and all cutscenes will be working.

In terms of performance, you will immediately notice that the first time the introduction cinematic plays, it will lag, like a lot.

This is normal as the game is compiling shaders in the background, and you will experience this slightly once you load a game or transition to a new area.

Aside from that, the performance is pretty good, the majority of the time it is 1080p 60FPS on my hardware but your millage may vary.

Why does everyone care so much about rocket league support getting dropped?

Arent we kind of used to not having linux support on games? Not like its the norm yet. Linux users are a very small part of the player base at the end of the day theyre a corporation who wants to make money so I can see why they dont want to waste their time maintaining something that almost no one will use. The native port was awful anyways, I played it through proton since it ran much better. It had a bunch of graphical glitches too. In all we arent really losing anything.

Help! Skyrim audio issues.

I am using PortingKit for mac and i installed Skyrim, when i run it the audio is crackling and popping making the game unplayable. i googled it, some solved the same issue by changing frequency in Audio MIDI setup, but that didn't work for me, some said to override x_audio or something, it also didn't work. does anyone know a fix? thanks

P.S: i am on MacOS mojave and also the audio of the game is pretty low volume, and changing frequency in MIDI setup lessened the crackling but they were still there.

trying to get battlenet installed on pop os with Lutris but no luck

Hi,

I installed (or at least I think I did) all the wine and dxvk dependencies by following the GitHub wiki and some other guides but I cant get the installer to finish.

The traditional windows style gui box shows up and I can see its trying to install it but before it makes any progress it (at this point its right after I decide where to install the application to, such as `Program Files` or something else and it tells me how much space the application requires) it tells me that there was an error.

Whats weird is that Lutris seems ok with this becuase the tile for overwatch loads into my Lutris library and I can launch it but when I try to do that it says no file found. Probably because nothing got written to it yet.

So yea if anyone can offer some help, I was told this would be a few clicks to get it up and running but I must not be doing the right sequence of clicks or something.

Am I supposed to install something else? I was under the impression that it would just install whatever it needs (from blizzard) for me.

If it helps I am running pop os 19.10 (fresh install) with a Vega 64 and AMD 2700x.

Any help would be really appreciated.

New Cod / Blizzard Games Dont Launch

Ive recently moved to Linux Manjaro, and i was amazed when i saw the fps that i could get in cs go(Windows: 250- with drops, Linux 290+ if i not block in 300), so i wanted to test windows games,specially the new Call Of Duty Warzone and to see their performance and of course play with my friends, but im having a problem, ive managed to put blizzard launcher working with wine,but the game dont launch, ive searched and see a lot of post but none helped me,and some commands i dont event know where to put them (yaourt specially).

This are the links that ive checked:

https://www.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/comments/ebx3a8/blizzard_games_wont_launch/ and all links mentioned on the post

https://forum.manjaro.org/t/blizzard-app/43025/2

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VU5q3bnWG6Y

But was confusing to me, someone can help in a way that i could understand? xD

I tried using lutris, wine32,wine64, winetricks,change winecfg, but the game still dont open, and in some cases the blizzard launcher dont open tho (for example using wine32)

PC Specs:

I5-7600

Nvidia GTX1050TI 4GB (I have all drivers for the graphics card installed)

Cannot get past launcher for FFXIV

This is driving me mad. The new launcher doesn't work at the moment and the workaround, according to several searches, is to set browser 1 in the boot.cfg to use the old launcher. This does not work. In fact no matter what I set it to, the new and broken launcher is all that shows up. I am using the Lutris installer on Arch linux and have tried multiple wine versions. Lutris 5.2 4.21 ge 4.10 and the latest ge 5.2. Depending on which wine version I use sometimes the launcher gives me a grey screen with the game logo. Sometimes it says HTTPS error and closes itself. Sometimes it just sits on the (blank) new launcher and does nothing. As far as I can tell, the game should run fine if I can bypass the launcher issue. Any ideas?

Planning to build a new machine that's going to run Manjaro

So I've been planning to build a new pc for gaming and Productivity, and the OS I want on it is Manjaro KDE. So I've been wondering if there are any sort of parts that are compatible or not with Linux and if there will be any problems because of my parts or maybe workarounds for it or at least something to keep in mind before purchasing. The main specs for my new pc would be:

Ryzen 7 3800x, Nvidia RTX 2070, 16gb RAM 3200mhz, MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX motherboard, 2x Seagate BarraCuda Compute 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drives (It's cheaper for me to buy 2 1tb ssds instead of one 2tb ssd)

Steam proton no compatdata folder

I just installed borderlands 3 and it ran fine until I hit a cinematic that I couldn't continue through. It looks as it's because the media foundation fix "mf-install" hasn't been installed.

When I try to run run the wineprefix command to install it I don't don't have the compatdata folder. I tried making the folder, the steam app ID folder, and the pfx folder manually but the wineprefix command still says it's an invalid directory.

Any ideas on how to get steam to make these directories accordingly or another fix?

Thank you

RGB lighting questions

Have all Corsair peripherals and now an Evga RTX 2060 super with RGB and now I'm hoping to find any kind of software or command for controlling the lights even to just turn them off. The card flashes blue and green so if I can't change it then I'll just turn them off. Anyone got any ideas?

Feral GameMode Crashes Rise Of The Tomb Raider

Using Feral GameMode 1.5-1 in steam launch options with gamemoderun %command% makes Rise Of The Tomb Raider crash.

Just wanted to see if anybody else could confirm this, gamemode seems to work just fine for other titles and used work for Rise Of The Tomb Raider, but since last update for Manjaro this is no longer the case.

Removing gamemoderun %command% fixes the issue but would like to get the best possible performance :)

CSGO and steam on Pixelbook

First, steam has a flickering black screen whenever it's open, but the more important thing is that the game stops launching right after you start. Does anyone know how to fix this? ( Preferably the second)

GOG Crysis under Wine crashes immediately

Games way too dark.

Hi everyone, it's my first post here. Anyways, so I was gonna play some Amnesia TDD, the game itself runs with no problems at all except for the fact that it's way too dark. When I used Windows I could just use a slider in the game to adjust the "brightness" (It didn't really change the brightness but made the colors brighter so the game appear brighter).

Im using a laptop btw (It's a MSI GF63 8RD)

How do I fix this issue? The game is way too dark to be enjoyable.

Here are my specs:

CPU: i5-8300H
iGPU: Intel UHD 630
dGPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 ti with max-Q design.
RAM: 8GB.

Model: MSI GF63 8RD.

How would I install GMDX (a .exe file) for Deus Ex (2000)?

I already have my Steam settings configured so I can download and use most games with Proton/Steam Play. I use Proton's 5.0-3 version. If someone could write out step by step how to do it, that'd be wonderful! Sorry for any inconvenience!

Has anyone experience with Eco?

Im really interested in playing Eco but Im a bit worried about how its running on linux?
On the shop site its a windows only title, however on SteamDB and ProtonDB its declared as native. I searched their forum and found a post about the linux support. Unfortunately there are missing some features, but thats not a big deal for me.

My main question is: Has anyone any experience with performance on this game at the current state?

TIA

Shovel Knight Showdown is awesome!

Man. I got today off of work and been meaning to try this one out for a bit. My family and I have been playing games and watching movies for the most part. Boot up Showdown and gave it a good try and I'm in love with it. Excellent controls and fun battles. Going to add it to my rotation to see if I can get more of my people into it.

Unity game doesn’t launch through Lutris with Proton 5.04

The Unity Game, i am trying to launch with Proton 5.04 in Lutris shows a window with a loading bar without text, which quickly closes. Lutris then shows the game as running but there is no sound or video. The game works fine when launched through steam as a non-steam game with Proton 5.04 in the very same wine prefix. Any ideas what steam is doing differently then Lutris here? THANKS!

Jedi Fallen Order

Hi there!

So, I somehow I got Origin and Jedi Fallen Order installed and the game works so far. There are some graphical glitches sometimes that I can deal with but the performance is just awful. I haven't had this issue with the other games I installed through Lutris (MTG Arena, SWTOR and LoL). Do you have any suggestions on how to maybe increase the performance of this particular game?And yes I am certain my PC (9600k oced to 4,8gHz and RTX 2070) should be able to run the game in 1440p on med to high at 60 FPS, it did it without any problems on windows :D

Thanks in advance!

Overwatch installation stuck

Hello, I am having issues with a fresh installation of Overwatch via Lutris. Battle.net launcher was getting stuck at waiting for agent, so I deleted the directory in ProgramData as recommended here. I had to wait several minutes until it allowed me to select an installation directory, but now it's stuck at "Waiting..." in main launcher window. It doesn't seem to do anything (almost zero IO and CPU stress) for over 10 minutes now. It cannot be paused "You can't pause yet. Please wait.". I had OW running on this machine before, so dependencies should be alright (I am using Manjaro). Any idea what might be wrong?

Overwatch works with d9vk, but doesn't with dxvk

In case with d9vk it runs instantly. But with dxvk all I'm getting is blackscreen. And i was waiting quiet some time, so i don't think it's loading.

Here's Overwatch configurations

And driver version

It's 1050 TI

Edit: I'm using Ubuntu 2nd day in my life, so I might just asking some dumb question I could fix it in 1 min, so sorry.

Anyone else unable to launch Monster Hunter World after its latest update even on the latest proton?

HI everyone,

I saw the post recently about Proton 5.0-4 being released, and with it having improved performance for MHW, I thought that'll be great to try out over GE's custom proton fix. Yet, I also noticed MHW had an update, and so I downloaded that. The game is, unfortunately, no longer launching on either the GE runner or the latest proton. In fact, I switched out various proton versions in the drop down list, including a slightly older GE that I knew worked, and not only do none of them work, the denuvo anti-cheat kicked in and locked me out the game for 24 hours :(

I verified game files, no go. I reinstalled the game last night and tried it again, and no go. Apparently the update for Windows users ran into some conflict with antivirus, and of course, the only solution posted to people having problems after the update is to add an exception to their lists. But well, we're on Linux; antivirus isn't a thing and yet the game still isn't running.

Has anyone else ran into this problem? Any ideas on how to work the problem? Here are my specs for reference:

  • OS: Arch Linux
  • KERNEL: 5.5.7-arch1-1
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 @ 3.30GHz
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970
  • GPU DRIVER: NVIDIA 440.64
  • RAM: 8 GB

Gamers who switched from Windows to Linux

WAS REMOVED FROM LINUX SUB(Thought the sub was for linux overall posting)

Hi everyone I am really loving linux but i personally find it lacking tons of basic features that need to be added manually which is silly imo.

But my main personal issue is Gaming. Yes proton has improved vastly over 2019 and is becoming better near bi weekly now in 2020.

But if you as a gamer are now on linux , what games do you play? How does performance differ if at all? What gpu,cpu ? Freesync or gsync?

I play AAA titles. What distro do you use? I LOVE ubuntus look and feel.

Anticheats are not the enemy. But what are the options on bypassing the blocking of anticheat running games?

PSA: Don't buy Aspyr game ports

...at least if you care about cross-platform multiplayer support and don't plan on using Proton.

They have a track record of not supporting their games.

The Linux port of Borderlands 2 by them is a great example of this: the port has had broken cross-platform support for about an entire year now, with promises that the update would come later..

Now supposedly the MacOS port of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 by them also has broken cross-platform support and the only "fix" is to use a discord server.

Nor do they go back and fix the performance problems that plague their ports. Borderlands 2 on Linux is probably one of the worst Linux ports in terms of performance there is, second to maybe the port of Dying Light: The Following Edition.

Please, unless you hate yourself only play singleplayer(even then, performance sucks) or plan on using Proton, don't give them any more money. They are a shitty company that doesn't support their products.

i am not sure how many thing can be a problem for this. from what i know the custom kernal that made for bypassing the anti cheat is one problem(is this what the game dev is aware of ?) but why cant we just lock it just for genetic or other custom kernal that been verified with some key then let the anti cheat check/verify the kernal before run the game?

Call of Duty: Warzone port to linux

Will the game be ported to linux via wine and available on lutris? I'm still pretty new to linux in general, I haven't seen the game's settings yet but I heard it uses dx12, which apparently doesn't have a compatibility layer to vulkan (?). The api dxvk supports are dx11/dx12 (right?) and d9vk is for dx9 (according to lutris). How's the development on a compatibility layer from dx12 to vk or it's not even possible to do so?

PS4 DS4 Controller (connected via USB) not working ingame (Brawlhalla; Arch)

I used to play Brawlhalla via Lutris on Arch and it worked flawlessly for 100h of playtime, DS4 worked out of the box , never had any issues.

But since a few weeks (I guess, i don't know exactly) the sticks, arrows (cross) and buttons are not recognized in Brawlhalla itself anymore. The touchpad is still able to move the mouse, but thats all. I also switched running the game with Steam itself and via Proton, but the result remains the same.

Anyone got any idea? I've already read throug a lot of threads, but none solved the issue. I want to emphasize again, that it worked out of the box for quite a long time

xinput lists the controler, and the sticks/buttons also work in BigPictureMode, literally the only thing that is not working is within the game.

Does anyone have an idea how one might be able to solve this?

Thanks in advance!

Linux: Suggestion for first distro

At the moment I am looking at dual booting my current windows 10 as I am fairly certain there will be that "one" application I need not working on Linux and I have a long list of apps/games. The primary driving factor is having Windows 10 breaking their patch with something major each once in awhile... Murphy's law and all that jazz.

I notice that Windows 10 can't read the file format Linux uses which is unfortunate but understandable. This create some limitation on where to install my Linux OS as all of my existing hard drives are NTFS/singular partition and contain some non-trivial amount of data on them. I only have room for a nvme m.2 drive, I think not sure about an extra SATA port, at the moment which is expensive. I can create a new partition on an already formatted hard drive somewhere but that can run into some risk on it's own.

I may do some programming from time to time and while I don't use any windows products which seems to be a saving grace right now. I do use open office and other minor productivity apps.

I have dual monitor.

I also like to run my Valve Index VR from time to time (can't wait for Alyx: Half Life). I also run Ubiplay, EA origins, Battle net, Steam, and finally but not least GOG. Obviously gaming is something I bleed!

I do have some software that runs peripheral that might be tricky to get support for such as orbweaver and razer mouse and g.skill keyboard.

I do have more than a passing familiar with terminal CMD from DOS/Windows 95 (Yes I am that old!), playing around with Raspberry Pi, using linux in college classes and, for career etc...

Currently, I am leaning toward either Ubuntu or Pop or Manjaro. Which Linux distro you think I should start with?

No sound when playing Prototype 2 on Linux

So I installed Prototype 2 and ran it using Wine. The game boots up, plays as expected and the performance is really good. However there is no sound. I tried changing the sound from pulse audio to alsa and oss, but that didn't work. This is the first game it happens on and I can't figure out why. There are no errors or warning when launching the game.

Any ideas?

Anyone prefers GOG over Steam?

For a Linux user, Steam seems to be the most obvious choice for buying games. That's a no surprise. Gabe Newell is afraid of Microsoft having too much control over Steam's main income source, that is the Windows platform, for which majority of games are developed. They are pushing and investing in Linux, so they can have a viable, alternative platform with a non-zero userbase, which is not controlled by someone else. Basically, they are trying to solve the "chicken and egg" problem. That's great, and the whole community can benefit from tools like Proton or graphics stack improvements, and can hope for more native games, once the userbase grows significantly in the future.

Now, I don't know what are your reasons for using Linux instead of Windows, but one of my reasons is to not depend on a operating system that has so much in common with spyware and malware. And I don't like running things I have no control of. But there's a similar problem with Steam. It's because everything revolves around their client. Downloading and running games is tied to the client by design. It doesn't matter whether the game has DRM or not, you are expected to always run your games through the Steam client, by design. There are DMR-free games, but Steam does nothing to provide an alternative way of running them, as it's not benefiting them.

So, it's all tied to their proprietary client, which is kind of a black box. It tracks your playtime, records achievements etc. which you can't opt out from. That data can be used for profiling, tracking your habits and so on. The update mechanism has no concept of deactivation, only deferring or limiting. You are supposed to update your games eventually. It feels like a walled garden and I absolutely hate that feeling. Furthermore, it can be dangerous, as it has a remote command execution support. It can basically uninstall a game and silently remove its contents from the hard disk without even telling you. Also, there used to be a shell script bug in the Steam client few years ago, so it could rm -rf'd the whole home directory. This can give you an idea about my concerns. So, basically many concepts of an externally managed platform, that I really don't like, unfortunately apply to Steam as well.

And now about GOG. They don't give a shit about Linux users, in terms of providing innovative solutions. Lack of the Galaxy client for Linux is a prime example of that attitude. Also, many games that have native Linux ports are available only as Windows releases on GOG, like Metro or X-COM series. Although personally I couldn't care less about the client, I think it's lame not to create it as a cross-platform application, given so many toolkits and frameworks are available. Despite that, I still prefer GOG, just because my impression on it is exactly the opposite to the walled garden feeling that I constantly have while interacting with Steam. They still have many native Linux games, which I'm interested in though.

Games distributed by GOG can be downloaded without using any kind of a proprietary client. However, they can be downloaded with third-party clients, because it's not as obfuscated as Steam's backend. Also, games packaged and distributed by GOG are self-contained by design, so I don't need to run any useless client, just to be able to play them. I can move them to another PC and they will work right off the bat. No mandatory time tracking, no achievements bullshit etc. Only my OS and the game, no imposed store-related things running in the background. It can be as simple as "I've paid for the game, you give me the game, see you again later, now fuck off". I really like and appreciate that it's possible, thanks to DRM-free builds and their stance on it. And if I want a more modern, launcher-like experience, there is Lutris or Minigalaxy.

Steam is obviously far ahead of GOG in terms of game availability, user experience and Linux support. I can see this is enough reason for the major part of the community to trust them and put all their eggs in one basket. For me, not so much, because convenience, and a significant part of the great user experience provided by Steam, is exchanged for giving unnecessary control over things I've paid for, and over my computer, to an external entity whose decisions are driven purely by money flow. I didn't like being in such situation when I used Windows years ago, and I'd like to avoid being in a similar situation when I'm using Linux, even when it's about stupid games.

And just like Steam is trying to get rid of Microsoft's influence on the gaming market, if it succeeds, it'll end up being a single entity controlling the majority of the gaming market by itself, utilizing open-source technology, yes, but at it's core still being a walled garden.

In the end, life is too short to argue about every single thing, and it's of course perfectly fine if you prefer convenience, even at some additional cost (not in terms of money). But, for example, life is also too short to play all the great games, so I don't find it to be a huge issue when something's not available on GOG, haha. Each platform has its pros and cons. I'm curious what are your thoughts on this?

Quick Review of Regata OS for Gaming

Hi everyone.

So as part of my ongoing series looking at Linux distributions that are aimed at gamers, I am this time looking at Regata OS, a distribution based on the rolling release OpenSUSE build Tumbleweed.

https://youtu.be/P3pU_DmNOtk

In summary, it has two unique pieces of software, Regata Software Store which as expected hosts a wide variety of both open source and proprietary software.

And more impressively the Regata OS Game Access, which could be described as Lutris but with a much better front end, where end users just need to click install, and everything is done automatically for them.

Unfortunately, although this makes it great for new users, more advanced users will not be able make the same modifications to Wine versions, enabling custom commands, and environmental variables.

You are effectively left to the mercy of Game Access on whether the game will run or not, although it is a nice touch that Gamemode is preinstalled and enabled by default.

Also Steam is not preinstalled, and Game Access does not have integration with your Steam library, but if it did then that would a great reason to use it.

I will say that in terms of presentation, both of the applications, and the distribution as a whole looks very professional, its just a shame its not based on a more popular distribution such as Arch or Ubuntu.

So personally for me a mixed bag, but for someone looking for an easy to use one stop click distribution, than Regata OS could be for you.

So what do you guys think, and have you heard of any other distribution that could be worth a look at?

PSA: there are a couple of dudes reverse engineering some open source Oculus CV1 and DK2 drivers!

I have 0 coding skills, but I would love to help them in some way. So if any of you have a CV1 or a DK2 and think you could help them you should go for it!

They have made leaps and bounds of progress since I first checked 6 months ago, and I cant wait to see more! Thanks for your time!

Is there a way to use MangoHUD outside of gaming?

I really like the look of MangoHUD and want to use it as a way to monitor system usage/temperatures outside of gaming, i.e. when rendering projects, etc.

Is this possible? Is there somewhere else I should look for a simple system/temperature GUI monitor?

Running a Ryzen 9 and Vega 56.

Escape from Tarkov?

I've recently heard of a workaround for Escape from Tarkov and battleye. Allegedly it doesn't disable battleye but does allow Linux users to play the game. Does anybody know of this? The guy I was talking to said you just had to remove a line from somewhere.

Clarification on whether or not steamplay is enabled for linux native titles?

Hello everyone, I recently redid my PC build and decided to ditch windows in favor of linux (yeah!). I've dabbled a bit with proton in the past and have already noticed it is leaps and bounds better than it was, even just 6 months ago.

I'm wondering if there is a clear cut way to see whether or not steam play is enabled for a linux native port or not.

I have enabled Steam Play for all titles in the settings but does this mean it automatically enables steam play for native titles as well, or would I still have to manually set it per title? I don't see an obvious indicator whether it is running native or not with Steam Play enabled for all titles. I'd hope its not an all or nothing approach since I'd rather have control over which native titles get the compatibility layer, and which ones do not.

Hope this makes sense!

Fortnite on Linux

I don't have Linux but I'm considering to use Manjaro or Mint over Windows, if it can fulfill my needs (if it can't then I'll just dual boot them.) My first need is Fortnite's (and R6S) compatibility on Linux. I've done research about Fortnite's compatibility on Linux and what I found is concerning. For now I want to confirm if Linux works on Linux and it's performance on any of the distros. (I'm getting a Ryzen 5 2600x and a RX 570 or 580.) I'd Linux doesn't work then what can do to support Linux.

Thank you and have a nice day.

this is the only thing that's been holding me back from switching to linux. i don't know if my (shitty, 200, low-end) laptop can even support it. i cannot even open it to see or modify the hardware! so i was wondering if its able to handle 2 OSs or to buy an external drive? or to just keep the money and wait to buy a pc i know i will never get cuz i cannot save money in my position ?

controller not working in trails in the sky

hey guys so I mentioned before that a game I been playing called trails in the sky. has broken controller support when i use winetricks custom dinput8.dll to enable voice overs in the game. so i thought it was just the mods fault and thats it. but I tried playing the game in windows and in windows controller support works fine with the mod. So whats breaking controller support is the dinput8 provided by the winetricks verb. Mabye im misunderstanding how wine tricks works and if so my bad but installing the dinput8 verb breaks controller support if I then remove it controller support works again. I more courious about this than anything .

How to tie Steam's /sub/ and /bundle/ packages to the store pages?

Buying a bundle can cost less than the specific game you're looking for, to my knowledge any notification or warning is never shown if you proceed with your (sub-optimal) purchase. As an example, Dirt Rally 2.0 is selling all DLC separetely, not listed on the store page at all where buying the DLC would cost several times as much.

to explain the bundle types:

/sub/ packages don't take your owned games into account, but can give a "bulk-discount" example https://store.steampowered.com/sub/376282/
/bundle/ packages give a relative discount based on the games you own example https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/5838/

Perhaps SteamDB keeps track of the bundle pages?

Having problem starting Zero-K linux portable build

Hello guys,

I'm using Ubuntu 19.10. I downloaded this highly regarded RTS game from https://zerok.itch.io/zero-k

I specifically selected the semi-portable build, and installed the prerequisite packages listed in the page except libcurl3 since it's superseded by libcurl4.

When execute the game it crash with exception. Anyone had a similar experience or know how to fix it.

Thanks.

Is there a clear way to use a Dualshock 4 v2 [CUH-ZCT2E] to play games with Xbox 360 controller support only?

Hi everyone!
I am searching a way to play Bloodstained RoTN via controller, but as I unhappily discovered, it only works with Xbox controllers.
Working my way around this issue on Windows was pretty straightforward, but doing the same on Linux seems a nightmare (and in my opinion it should not be like this at all).
I tried the `ds4drv` emulation driver hoping for it to work even if it's discontinued software, but it seems my gamepad model isn't supported.

To be clear, I am running the DRM-Free version of BS:RoTN. No Steam Overlay is involved here (it would have been too simple)

trouble running steam

I'm super new to this.

So I got wine and xquartz. Then I downloaded the windows version of steam. When I try to run it one of two things happens:

1) I get the "connecting to steam account" window for a long time and then it disappears and nothing happens or 2) it opens the steam store, but the content of the steam store never loads.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks

SteamVR on a laptop

When I first got my HTC Vive, I ran it for a full year on low-end hardware: a laptop with a 6th gen Intel i7 and NVIDIA 960M graphics. It really sucked but it was worth the experience with VR.

Now I'm running it on a proper desktop and it is not the portable system like it used to be. My laptop can barely run it at 70% resolution with sickening reprojection. I decided to then revive the now 4 year old laptop with Pop!_OS Linux. (Pop!_OS being based on Ubuntu, which is recommended by Valve)

SteamVR refuses to function. I've seen several posts around the internet showing how it's working but I just can't get there. It always says "A component of SteamVR has stopped working". It detects the headset, controllers, and lighthouses, but it won't show anything in the headset. Pop!_OS came installed with the latest NVIDIA proprietary drivers and I've tried the SteamVR Beta and linux_temp beta. Both of which resulted in the same error message and behavior. Is there any way to run SteamVR on a laptop with Linux?

RE2Remake (Proton Steam) )problem to install mf-installcab

Hello,

Originally W10 users, I switched to a Linux distribution (I use Linux Mint) that since recently, I use Proton to play my originally planned Steam games under Windows, I have no particular worries except for RE2 Remake, I can't install Installcab to fix the "Capcom present" intro bug.

https://github.com/z0z0z/mf-installcab

Before following the installation, to begin with, I didn't know what it meant, so I found this tutorial on the Internet: https://www.addictivetips.com/ubuntu-linux-tips/create-wine-prefixes-on-linux/.

Then, the path to install the "install-mf-64.sh" script can be different for different users and in my case, at home, the first path is "/home/myname/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata", and I don't have the folders "883710" and "pfx" as on the tuto, these are in: "/media/myname/SSHD/Steam/steamapps/compatdata", I install my games on my SSHD and Linux Mint is installed on my SSD.

So I don't know which path is the right one, I tried several times with both, and each time I run the "install-mf-64.sh" script I get the message "WINEPREFIX not set", while I followed the tuto to install another Wine prefix.

https://www.protondb.com/app/883710

Any help for me? Thanks

Anyone attempted to play Call of Duty Warzone?

Wanted to check it out with some friends, installed Battle.net from Lutris, went through the agonizing 80+GB download, and when I tried to play the game, I clicked "play", appeared to be "launching" for 30 seconds, and then goes back to play.

All dependencies were installed, no window ever appeared, on open source drivers with an RX480. Tried with and without Esync, but to no avail. I tried to know which anti cheat method was used, but I found no information, albeit with a limited search.

Anyone got this thing working?

Then I tried installing via the manual install shindig in my default wine prefix. This made winetricks throw a hissy fit about installing the packages, so I created a fresh, x32 wine prefix, first installed the suggested packages, then installed MOULa, same issue. I also tried in each iteration to use the PhysX installer in the instalation folder after install: no dice, same issue recurs. In each case the outcome remains the same, stack dump upon accepting TOS, when the game is supposed to launch.

If anyone has any inspiration I'd be much obliged!

Linux/Windows setup using two separate drives

Hi guys, I'm getting a desktop PC today that comes with a 500 GB SSD pre-installed with Windows. Not only is it my first desktop PC, but will also be the first time I will game with Linux! I also bought a fresh 1 TB SSD and I'm wondering how I should use it. I'm thinking one of two options:

A) 500 GB all Windows, 1 TB all Linux

B) 500 GB partitioned between Linux and Windows, and use the 1 TB as secondary storage, separating my games for Linux and Windows between two folders

The benefit of option A is that if one drive malfunctioned, I'd keep the other OS intact. On the other hand, with option B, I can install all Windows binaries on the 1 TB and easily access them on either OS via native Windows or Wine/Proton.

I'm leaning towards option B, but would there be anything else important to consider?
