External NTFS drive shows 0kb free for Steam library

My Home drive is nearly full, so I setup a second Steam library folder on my 6Tb external drive. However, Steam always shows it as having 0 kb free.

The drive has a lot of other stuff on it so reformatting in a ext3 or similar is out of the question. At a guess, it's a permissions issue, but I've nothing much to go on. Searches throw up Windows users having a similar issue with fixes that don't work.

I have set up the nofile limits correctly, yet lutris says they are not.. (archlinux) (wine esync)

Everything is in the title, my games are mostly cpu bound, I have hopes that esync would improve my fps.

ulimit -hn returns 524288 so it should be ok, but lutris is still complaining.. Does anyone know what could be wrong ?

Thank you very much.

Need help with game installation PES 10

I'm a noob in wine gaming and needed help with the installation of Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2010. Although I successfully installed the game the real problem is to run that thing. I've already tried running it and earlier was getting some error code, so I tried installing almost every directx dll and vcredist dll from winetricks, after this the game just closes itself without even showing the error code. I've checked the winehq website for possible solutions but can't find any, have seen people playing the game on wine on YouTube effortlessly. Please help me with this problem. I'll be really really thankful.

Heroes of The Storm on Linux - can't get it to work no matter what, help please?

Hello everyone,

I recently changed to linux only and I was quite happy with the fact that many reddit users were posting screenshots of the game running on linux. I followed advice from some of them but still not playable at all. A little hand fellow linux users?

hardware:

i7-8550U

8GB RAM, intel UHD 620 (iGPU only)

Manjaro Linux kernel 4.19.14-1, xfce DE

What I did: follow step by step the guide presented at

https://lutris.net/games/heroes-of-the-storm/

I triple checked the dependencies for blizzard app, for wine, for dxvk and esync value changes

How I installed: I first checked all dependencies; then I ran the install script from lutris website (using lutris...) which installed the battle net under wine (I waited for the login screen to close automatically, I did not sign in during installation). From lutris window, I clicked to run "Heroes of the Storm" and it lunched battle net. Working perfecttly fine, so I selected "install heroes of the storm" which showed no issues. I went to the "configure" option for the icon "heroes of the storm" where I enabled esync, set dxvk version 0.95. I launch it, battle net shows up, I log in successfuly, I click on the game heroes of the storm to launch it. I get to the initial game screen without any problem except for laggy mouse cursor. I then click on "play" tab (applies to other upper tabs too, when checking owned items etc) and the game totally freezes. Screen doesn't move, mouse cursor moves, fps count freezes also. Nothing goes on. I click to close the window and the system says that the application is busy and unresponding.

What I tried:

changing wine version: wine 3.21.tkg, 3.18.esyncenabled, 3.21.protonified, 4.0rc5.staging (this in particular says that esync is not compatible with it when I check the box esync). I tried different versions of dxvk. Vulkan is working (i checked with vkcube). I tried pba enabled and disabled, I tried a dxvk config file, I tried changing the runner (2 execuables with battle name), I changed the environment variables according to other users. I always get the same result or in a few cases the game quits without showing any game screen. Drivers ok, dependencies ok, every step from guides. Might be related to the fact that i only have iGPU? (all guides I found and people running it well were using discrete gpu).

Any help please?

NB: I don't know how to tweak wine prefixes and files unless I make them copy paste from other examples

PS: I have an egpu on the way, might it help in the issue?

PS2: please don't rant on this, I've spent loads of time researching and talking to users who had everything running well;

PS3: pretty please? It's the only game I play(ed).

Thanks in advance

[Help] can't get a game to work with proton

Hi, I just switch back to linux (mint) to try proton in steam. Pretty disapointing so far because I can't get any game to work with it.

I'm trying to get Eternal card game to work (ranked platinum on protondb). I tried the tweak some people use but it doesn't work either ("PROTON_NO_D3D11=1 %command%").

Is there anything special to do to get proton to work ?

Anyone try CS:GO, Day of Infamy, and other Source titles with forced Steam Play?

I know that the native versions of Source games like CS: GO and Day of Infamy can have some performance issues or they force the install of a bunch of 32-bit libraries. For example, DOI will not load for me on an AMD RX 580 with the latest Mesa unless I install a bunch of 32-bit libraries ahead of time.

It would be funny if these games like CS: GO perform better under WINE than native heh.

Anyone else had problems downloading games since yesterday's Steam beta update? "Content servers unreachable", or is there a problem in the UK?

Google has a billion answer for "Content servers unreachable" but none seems to help:

  • It's not a single, game, it's all games. Native and Proton.
  • Running xdg-open steam://flushconfig did clear my config, didn't help.
  • Clearing the download cache in settings did the same as the above. Still didn't help.
  • Wine on Steam can still download. Not an obvious networking issue.
  • Replacing the config.vdf list of steamcontent.com servers didn't work. More, as soon as Steam starts it puts the list back to how it was before.

Is Steam just down? I'm in the UK. 36 of the ~100 valve###.steamcontent.com don't ping from here. That's either because those servers don't respond to pings or they're dead, Jim. They all resolve, and all resolve to IPs that look right.

I don't believe it's a local DNS issue, I've resolved my config.vdf hosts here and on a selection of servers I co-locate in datacentres. All come back with the same results. Those servers that timeout locally also timeout in these DCs.

Anyone else in UK having issues? Is this Brexit kicking in? Hmm, that doesn't explain why it works in Wine though.

Mouse1 + Mouse2 button simultaneously?

OK is there a trick to getting mouse 1 and 2 buttons to function when clicking them at the same time? An example would be the dual wielding or casting in Skyrim. Mouse 1+2 simultaneously will dual cast instantly. In my Ubuntu system I have to click one button, then the next to do this.

Skyrim is no big deal but I stream Aliens vs. Predator 2010 from my Windows machine and play online. M1+M2 is block in that game and I cant seem to change the key mapping on that, so I am unable to compete at all which is a major drag.

Thanks for the help.

Opinion: It should be possible to run the Mac port through Proton if one exists

Because the job of converting from DirectX to OpenGL has already been done, and it's possible that Proton is choking on some games due to incomplete DirectX support. At the very least, it would be a good way of testing Proton's limitations.

Dying Light on amdgpu/Mesa ­— Who still can't run it?

I am the developer who created the initial fixes for Dying Light on Linux with AMD graphics on open source drivers (amdgpu/Mesa). It sounds like it fixed the game for many people, but I've heard that some users still cannot launch it. I have some time to look at this again, so I'm looking for cases where the game still does not work.

The game does work on my system. My configuration is as follows:

OS: Linux Mint 18.1
Kernel: 4.13.9
GPU: R9 290
Mesa: 19.0.0-devel (git-4149d41f2e); today's Git
LLVM: 7.0.1; tip of release\_70 branch as of today

The thing is, this is my dev machine, and I've compiled the entire graphics stack and a bunch of other libraries myself at this point; it might not reflect what most users are running. But I've had this game run on Mesa 17.2 (which is where the fix landed), 18.0, and probably some others in between.

If you'd like to help pinpoint the remaining issues with the game, please make a post that includes your:

  • Distribution
  • Hardware
  • Kernel version (uname -r)
  • Relevant Mesa bits (mesa/LLVM version); the output of glxinfo | grep 'OpenGL \(renderer\|core profile\)' should include these.
  • Relevant custom configuration or manually installed software/libraries, changes to the Steam runtime, etc.

Maybe we can find some common elements that provide some insight into the issues that still exist. If I were to venture a guess as to what's causing problems, I would say something about newer versions of some libraries on newer distros. My installation is pretty old at this point. I did try rebuilding my steam runtime (with steam --reset) just in case I changed something, but it didn't change anything with the game.

Some additional information that comes to mind that might help or interest some folks:

  • You must set MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE and MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE to at least 4.4/440 when you launch the game. The string I put in the Steam launch options is MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.4 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=440 %command%. This is necessary because the game does not properly request the version of OpenGL it needs. There's some discussion of the technical details of this here.
  • The game crashes for me if I change the fullscreen or vertical sync setting in-game, though it does appear to commit the change to the config file and take effect on the next run. I don't know why this happens, but the rest of the game should work regardless.
  • The black loading screen with the bar at the bottom takes a while because the shaders are recompiled every time. IIRC this is due to the game being statically linked with a version of zlib that is incompatible with the one Mesa uses for shader caching.
  • The game may have severe framerate drops in certain areas with the radeon driver, or with the amdgpu driver on kernel versions before 4.14, as some memory management changes were introduced in 4.14 that fixed this problem.

DXVK 0.95 problems

hey there r/linux_gaming

i've read the changelog of DXVK 0.95 and wanted to test out the AC Odyssey performance but when i switch from DXVK 0.93 or 0.94 i just get a black screen at the beginning the other DXVK versions work fine.

i own AC Odyssey through steam but an Uplay update broke it with proton so even the gnuutils workaround doesn't and using steam through wine i couldn't get it to work either so i run it through Uplay in wine which downloaded steam in wine and so far it worked perfectly except for the performance which is why i was really hyped for 0.95 but it doesn't work.

i tried other games only AC Odyssey is broken with DXVK 0.95 please help

Dev question: Now that Proton exists is it useful to do a full Linux port?

Hello everyone!
Our team has been working on a new game for some time now (a 2d platformer). Some months ago we did the porting of the game to Linux. This was a personal choice since Ive been wanting to support Linux since our previous project, but for that one we had to skip it. The Linux version took a few weeks to get it up and running and we are happy with it, but since then we learned about the release of Proton/Steam Play. After testing it we have to say that it works great so far! Now we have questions and we are curious if you think its worth to have a full Linux version that does not require Proton to work on systems. As a user, what would be the advantages?

Side question: Im personally not very experienced on Linux (but hey, Im learning new things everyday!) and have tried our standalone Linux build on Mint and Ubuntu. It works on my system, but dont know on which other distros should we test? Maybe do a close beta with Linux users?
Thanks for your feedback!

Game booster for Linux, does it exist?

Hello, I saw this game booster (Razer Cortex), but it's Windows-only. Is there any game booster for Linux? I tried to search for it, but i didn't find anything.

Poor Starcraft 2 performance using Lutris

I'm not sure what happened but I used to have a really good performance around 300-400fps in the beginning of a match, right now after try a bunch of runners (from 3.15 staging to 3.21 , esync,) I have the same performance on them, all them start around 195-200, I'm sure the Lutris had some more settings beside the cache, like some "__PBA" variable but I don't remember and couldn't find anything.

Simracing Wheel with Linux Support?

This question is asked once in a while, and with the rise of Proton compatible games I thought it would be a good idea to have an update on the matter.

I recently bought BeamNG Drive who works really well with Steamplay. I now feel the need to buy a proper Wheel/pedals/shifter.

Apparently Logitech (currently G29/920 FFB wheels) have native kernel support.

Thrustmaster does not support linux, howerver her001 made an open source driver : https://github.com/her001/tmdrv Sadly the T150 and T300 wheels are not fully supported at the moment.

Fanatec: I can't find solid information about any Linux support

Do you own a racing wheel with force feedback working under linux ?

How to overclock your AMD GPU on Linux

One thing I missed from Windows after my transition to Linux was the ability to easily adjust my GPU's clock speeds and voltages. I went to the godly Arch Wiki and found there's a way to overclock AMD GPUs, but some steps are not very clear and I had to do some googling to get everything working.

First things first, your kernel has to be at least version 4.17 and the driver amdgpu (not the proprietary amdgpu-pro). I suggest installing the latest mesa+amdgpu from this PPA for *buntu, but I don't know about other distros. It might not even be a necessary step.

You need to add the parameter amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff to your GRUB configuration. To do so, edit /etc/default/grub as root and add the parameter between the quotes of GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. Save, then run sudo update-grub2. Reboot.

Now, we need to find the file with our GPU's clocks and voltages. In my case it was in /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/, but you can find the directory by running readlink -f /sys/class/drm/card0/device.

The file we want to work with is called pp_od_clk_voltage. Mine looked like the following (my card is a Sapphire RX 580 Nitro+ 4GB):

OD_SCLK:
0:        300MHz        750mV
1:        600MHz        769mV
2:        900MHz        887mV
3:       1145MHz       1100mV
4:       1215MHz       1181mV
5:       1257MHz       1150mV
6:       1300MHz       1150mV
7:       1411MHz       1150mV
OD_MCLK:
0:        300MHz        750mV
1:       1000MHz        800mV
2:       1750MHz        950mV
OD_RANGE:
SCLK:     300MHz       2000MHz
MCLK:     300MHz       2250MHz
VDDC:     750mV        1200mV

We want to edit the P-state #7 for the core and #2 for the VRAM, as those are the values that our GPU is going to run at while under load. On Windows, my optimal values were 1750MHz for core and 2065MHz for memory, so I'm going to edit the file as follows:

sudo sh -c "echo 's 7 1450 1150' > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/pp_od_clk_voltage"

Where "s" means we're editing the core's values, 7 is the seventh P-state, 1450 is the speed we want in MHz, 1150 is the voltage in mV. Note that I didn't run sudo echo "s 7 1450 1150" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_od_clk_voltage like the Arch Wiki states, because it would throw an error and not apply the changes (this might have worked without "sudo" if we logged it as root with sudo su, but it's best not to do so for safety reasons). See here.

Same with the VRAM: sudo sh -c "echo 'm 2 2065 950' > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/pp_od_clk_voltage"

After these two commands the file is going to be the same except for the two lines of the P-states we just edited. We can check by running cat /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/pp_od_clk_voltage.

I didn't mess with voltages because I'm already satisfied with my results and I'm very paranoid about damaging my GPU. If you really want to, please be really careful as you might cause fatal damage to your card!

Once we are done, running sudo sh -c "echo 'c' > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/pp_od_clk_voltage" will apply the changes and the GPU will start running at those new frequencies when under load.

While I haven't found a way to actively monitor clock speeds la MSI Afterburner, I could see a sudden increase in FPS in Heaven Benchmark as soon as I applied the new clocks. I set the camera to free mode (so that it stops moving) and after applying the FPS went from 55-56 to 60-61!

(The guide on ArchWiki also has a command to change the maximum power consumption in Watts: I didn't mess with it as I wasn't sure what was a safe value)

Now there's one problem: every time we reboot our PC the clocks are going to reset. So how do we make them stick?

Assuming your distro has systemd, we can create a service that runs the three commands that edit and apply the clocks at boot. If your distro doesn't have systemd, you can follow these steps.

First, we need to create a script. I named mine "overclock" and put it in /usr/bin/. It looks like this:

#!/bin/sh
sudo sh -c "echo 's 7 1450 1150' > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/pp_od_clk_voltage"
sudo sh -c "echo 'm 2 2065 950' > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/pp_od_clk_voltage"
sudo sh -c "echo 'c' > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/pp_od_clk_voltage"

Then, we have to create a file in /etc/systemd/system/ with a .service extension. I named mine overclock.service:

[Unit]
Description=Increase GPU core and memory clocks

[Service]
Type=oneshot
ExecStart=/usr/bin/overclock

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

sudo systemctl enable overclock.service will enable our service. After rebooting it should automatically overclock the GPU. We can check if it did by running cat /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0/pp_od_clk_voltage.

(It's not necessary, but I also made a script that sets the GPU back to the stock clock speeds. I didn't make a service for it, I just put it in my Documents folder.)

So that should be it! Keep in mind that it might not work on any AMD GPU, in fact I couldn't find a way to do it on my Ryzen+Vega laptop (something with power saving mode I'm guessing), but it's always worth a try. This is my first "real" guide so any feedback is very much appreciated.

Can't record Monster Hunter World using OBS

Specs: i5-6600K, RX480, using Manjaro.

So I've been wanting to record this game for a while but for some reason this is the only game I'm having trouble with. I'm able to play and record with no issues at high settings games like DotA2, Rocket League, even Overwatch. But whenever I run MHWorld, as soon as I boot up OBS, fps counter on the OBS window goes down, and the video recorded stutters like crazy. Game runs perfectly tho.

I tried on both the default encoder (x264) and VAAPI, the same happens. Also tried lowering resolution or bitrate but it still lags. Does not happen on any other game I tested. Can anyone help me?

Mirror's edge keybind issues

I bought mirror's edge today after seeing it was gold on protondb. Upon starting the game I ran into an issue with keybinding.

I use a Dvorak keyboard layout. Most of the time this isn't a problem. Games either automatically recognise the layout and remap accordingly or I manually change the key binds.

The problem with mirror's edge however is that you can't bind punctuation keys to anything. For those not familiar with a Dvorak layout Q, W and E are ' , and .

Makes it hard to play when I can't rebind keys. Even when I switch to a QWERTY layout the game still detects a Dvorak layout and I have the same problems. Apparently this is a problem in windows too. The game doesn't allow rebinding of an action to any key. The only solution give on any of the forums I found was to use autohotkey which isn't possible on Linux.

Running Linux mine 19

Any idea how I can actually play this game?

Manjaro or Arch?

I'm thinking about moving over to linux in the middle of this year but I'm stuck between these 2 distros. Was dead set on arch until I heard it wasnt new user friendly. But manjaro is based of it and is new user friendly apparently. I am planning to use xfce because I like to be as light weight as possible with good customisation. I heard arch has a really good wiki and I'm all about stuff like that.

Bassically does anyone have any input that you think would be a good influence on this decision?

Newer kernels may break several games.

Due to change in PTRACE_POKEUSER hw breakpoint, using kernels 4.19 and newer will break some games.

A wine user posted a bug report(46472) explaining the situation. It is his bisect, not mine. Since reverting to

4.18, I now have Black Ops 2, F.E.A.R. 3 and Ghost Recon: Wildlands working. For me, they were broken with

newer kernels.

Question regarding gsync and multiple monitors

Hi all,

I recall reading somewhere that there was an issue with Linux users with multiple monitors, one with Gsync enabled, one without. This issue being gsync was more of a "all or nothing" setting, whereby either all connected monitors had to have gsync enabled, otherwise it couldn't be enabled.

I currently have a Dell Gsync + a secondary non gsync monitor. Curious to hear if this is still the case? Obviously I'd like to have gsync enabled on the applicable monitor, and still have use of the secondary one. Appreciate there have been driver updates since I last read that.

If anyone could clarify I would be grateful.

Thanks,

I really wish gaming on linux would be supported more.

I've been trying Linux for a couple days now and it's really amazing. Possibly better than windows in everyway, except one which is gaming. I truly wish developers supported Linux more but sadly it doesn't seem like it's going to happen. My favorite games which I researched before hand are said to run on Linux through steams proton capability and startup commands.

The first couple hours were great and it was the perfect OS I was always looking for. But after a while a host of bugs and issues started to show up. Mouse gets stuck in camera mode when in menus, mouse moves down and to the right when clicking. some menus broken. I'm really sad because I wanted Linux to be my all in one operating system. Sadly I think I'm going to have to go back to windows 10.

I thought about dual booting but switching between two operating systems just for gaming is not what I planned to do nor what I wanted.

Anyways just expressing my feelings towards the current situation of gaming on Linux. Anyone else feel the same way about it as me?

A game does not launch with Wine Staging

I have been playing GTA: San Andreas on my MacBook with Wine Staging App for over 2 years now. However, after I updated my macOS, the game does not launch anymore.

I am able to launch my samp.exe, but once I click to connect to a server nothing happens.

I have tried updating the Wine Staging to the newest version of 4.0-rc5, but that did not help, as the problem stayed the same.

Do you guys have any suggestions on how to get this to work or what other apps I could to launch the game?

Thanks in advance.

Discord says it needs an update(Update 0.0.7), AUR, flatpak and snap are all still on 0.06, anyone else?

Also, is the only thing i can do now to download the tar.gz from the website? (Or use alien to convert the .deb to pacman format)

Windowed mode...

I'm trying to run cs go on Ubuntu but it freezes then starts after a few seconds but it is always in windowed mode and I can't save settings because I can't access the lower part of the screen where I suppose a "save" button might be. How do I solve this issue. Thanks for your time.

World of Warships accusing proton & wine user of cheating

So, from time to time I play World of Warships. Up until middle of november I used to have a windows PCI passthrough setup for windows only games. But after so many microsoft shenanigans, I went full Linux (Arch to be specific). Now, initially I ran world of warships through Proton. But since the patcher on steam would cause HDD issues, I shifted the game to a manual install through their wargaming client, and ran it through its own wine prefix. The game has been unmodified. Just a barebones wine prefix which is just able to run the game. 2 weeks after my last playsession, I suddenly get an 'interesting' email from Wargaming. See attached image. Did wargaming introduce some easy anti cheat shenanigans or what? So right now I'm holding off playing the game until this is resolved.

Wargaming.net sent me a nice email.

Making drag and drop work inside of Wine?

I'm on Ubuntu 18.04 and trying to drag and drop some media files into Skybox Windows version. They appear with a length of 0:00 (not working). I then remove them and browse for the files, which I've placed inside Wine's C drive at /home/owner/.wine/drive_c/media_directory and adding it this way also doesn't seem to work (same 0:00 problem).

Anyone know how to do this properly?

(Proton) GTAV Single Player Works, Online Crashes, but Worked Previously

Lately I've been on a big GTA V hitch, and have been playing online with my friends for the past several days. The game has always worked perfectly, except since the 11th, the game has been instantly crashing when GTA Online loads. If I start in Singleplayer and then move into Online, it will seemingly crash at the point where I spawn. A friend did say that he saw me join his game briefly.

I've tried deleting every file related to the game and re-validating them to download all 76GB again. However, the crash still persists. I have a feeling it may have something to do with the fact that I exited the game during a weird moment, and perhaps it glitched my character's spawn or something. But before I try to get something from Rockstar, I wanted to see if anyone else in the community has experienced this problem before and potentially fixed it.

For the record, I have never modified this GTA install in any way whatsoever. I've only ever modded Singleplayer, but haven't done so since I ran Windows months ago.

Help with dotnet20 for mac

I've messed around w/ wine and wineskin a bit, and have gotten a 32 bit wrapper to work for steam. I also have gotten Victoria 2 (any paradox fans?) to run by directly running v2game.exe or changing the name of the exe to the launcher's name and manipulating steam to run it. I went onto the winehq page for vic2 and it said I either need to download dotnet20 or launch it via wine cmd. When using cmd, I can launch the game, but usually it crashes at some point and doesn't work well.

All in all, I need help to get dotnet20 on mac, and a video would be preferable, thanks a lot!

As shown in these pictures, certain angles Wrecking Ball is invisible and only Hammond model appears. At others, the ball isn't completely gone but is still glitched. This bug also applies to D.Va's mech, but I couldn't find any screenshots I thought I took of that. It's not really a problem since heroes are outlined in their team's color, but I'm curios to know if there is quick fix. I'm using the Lutris default settings (wine version tkg-3.21 and dxvk 0.93)

PSA: Alien Isolation and Civ V, run better in wine+dxvk than native ports

Just a PSA:

I've been messing around using Wine and DXVK on a few titles that have had issues with the native ports. I have had remarkably good results with Alien Isolation, as well as Civilization V

My system:Arch Linux (linux 4.20.0-arch1-1-ARCH)

Wine-staging 4.0rc4

DXVK 0.94

RX 470 on Mesa 18.3.1

AMD Phenom II X4 945

12 GB RAM

btrfs

Alien Isolation:

Advantages:

Works reasonably well with AMD cards on mesa. (Native port is a mess on AMD)

Surround sound works! (5.1 audio is missing in native version)Can use mods! (Alias Isolation is great for getting rid of the game's horrible aliasing)

Disadvantages:

None so far

Special instructions:

None so far (Only tested with 32-bit wineprefix)

Civ V:

Advantages:

Better mod support

Better performance

Anti-aliasing! (Yaaaaay!)

Disadvantages:

DRM works (Aspyr didn't enable steam DRM in native port)Fog of war doesn't look quite right on highest setting (haven't checked lower settings). Seems washed-out. Barely noticable.

Caveats:

32-bit wineprefix required

use dx11 version (duh)

Set "BicubicTerrainTessellation = 0" in GraphicsSettingsDX11.ini, or use lowest terrain tessellation in settings

[Help] How to solve the Dualshock 3 Glitch automatically when paired ?

Hi !

I'm spending the last two days, trying to pair successfully my Dualshock 3 controllers with Ubuntu 16.04.

The problem is, when I pair the controller using the Bluetooth manager, the mouse cursor doesn't behave correctly.

This problem was mentioned on this post : PS3 pad on Ubuntu 16.04 (4.13.0-26-generic) - overrides mouse and duplicates jsX events and also here : Playstation3 controller causes random mouse events on ubuntu 16, how to fix?

On both posts, the problem can be solved, using the following command :

Opening then closing instantly?

I'm excited to think I could potentially play Warblade in Wine, the problem is I installed the app and it just opens and instantly closes again so I have yet to get far enough to try.

If anybody is fluent in using Wine and has a few minutes free I would really appreciate if you could test the demo from the site?

http://www.warblade.as/

If the demo works then I think the full game will and if somebody could help verify then maybe I can fix the not opening issue or of I can open Wine then I will try myself.

Hurdles Migrating From Windows

There's always going to be things that are inconvenient migrating to new platforms. Things are often unfamiliar and sometimes tools you used previously don't support your new platform.

There's the obvious hurdles like "my games don't work" or Adobe that we really can't do anything about. There was a post earlier about someone making a GPU GUI tool which I think is awesome. It got me thinking about other areas of Linux where GUI tools are lacking making adoption harder on people.

This is really more focused toward people who switch recently. Is there anything that you had to do that didn't have a GUI for?

I think GUI front ends will help tremendously with platform adoption as it curbs the learning curve significantly. Just looking for thoughts and ideas. Anyone else agree?

PSA: For those running Gallium Nine. Try turning it off if the performance is unsatisfactory.

This just happened to me with Fallout NV: wine's own D3D9 implementation gave me smooth frames on Ultra settings while Native DX9 did not.

I checked the utilization and the CPU and GPU were not taxed 100% on both modes (far from it), so it seems there must be some pipeline stalls in some games or something for Gallium Nine.

If this is a known thing, I apologize.

I just thought Gallium Nine is always going to give better performance, because it did for me on most games. That's why I was surprised to see the default wine DX9 implementation give better performance.

  • CPU: FX6300
  • RAM: 16GB RAM
  • GPU: R9 270 with amdgpu drivers
  • wine: 4.0 rc2, PBA disabled, ESYNC enabled

AMDGPU-PRO not working with Vulkan

Hi there,

I am pretty new to the Radeon RX Vega 64 World (coming from Nvidia), in fact not even 24 hours old, so pardon me in advance, if I overlooked something. I got my vega yesterday and assembled it in a rig with a Ryzen 5 1600x and MSI B450 Mainboard. I installed Ubuntu Budgie and everything worked from the start, with the standard mesa driver, just a clean full Budgie install. I decided to install the AMDGPU-PRO driver, tho I am not sure yet, if I really need it. The good thing of this driver was so far that it showed the Power Draw of the card. The Mesa driver did not do that.

With the driver I started Fallout 76 via the standard lutris install (wine, DXVK, esync) and got the newest Vulkan version. The result was, the Bethesda Launcher was completly distorted. An unreadable graphical image. I tried the same with DOTA 2 and Vulkan drivers native for Linux and the same happened. Its a picture of a billion horizontal lines in different colors and different length and it is unreadable.

Then I uninstalled the Pro driver and reverted back to Standard Mesa and all went well. The Vulkan games started great.

I tried Deus Ex: Mankind Divided in its native Linux version and it worked fine with both drivers, so OpenGL seems to work. Yet I have short framedrops with the PRO driver in Deus Ex and a severe low framerate at around 15 fps at times. With Mesa driver there are no framedrops and the framerate doesnt go below 35 fps and most times runs at 50 fps. Resolution is 1080p, all set to Ultra (game seems to be badly integrated in Linux, cause that is way too low for a Vega 64).

Do you have experiences with the Pro driver and do I need it at all? Except for the power draw display for conky, I wouldnt see a need to use it; especially not, if Vulkan ain't working properly.

Thanks and have a nice weekend,

Greetings ~ent

Any xbox one gamepad support on linux with steam/proton in GTA V?

Hi. I have not bought a steam controller yet, and they might just work in linux and games. I can run gta v, but i want to use the gamepad and it works in big picture mode in linux, but not in the game when i launch it...

It seems like it don't respond in the game, but there should be a fix and i'm quite new in linux so i don't know much about it yet.. The game should support a gamepad in linux with steam right? Some of you might play it... Any idea what i can try to make it work? Thanks

Nvidia Optimus best options?

I'm looking to install Arch/an Arch derivative on my thinkpad t480 and want to do some light gaming on it. It has an mx150 dgpu.

If I only care about performance and don't care about actual dynamic switching (as in the OS switching between the gpus automatically), what's my best option? Would it just be to use nvidia-xrun and nothing else?

I've been building a Qt5 GUI overclocking tool for the Nvidia closed-source driver. Here's the first 0.1 release.

Linvidia is a new application that attempts to mimic the functionality of similar tools found on a certain proprietary competing operating system.

Here's a screenshot

You can try it out by downloading Linvidia20190110.AppImage, then making it executable:

chmod +x Linvidia20190110.AppImage

Although I don't game on Linux myself, instead opting for /r/VFIO, I want to provide this tool to the community in the hopes that it will lower the barrier of entry to Linux gaming and bring it slightly closer to parity with Windows.

Current features:

Automatic Coolbits enable via /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/linvidia.conf when run with kdesu/gksudo
GPU model and driver detection
GPU temperature, usage, VRAM usage monitoring
Core and memory overclocking
Overvolting
Manual fan control
Profile save/load

Planned future features:

Multi-GPU support
Enabling common driver tweaks such as NVreg_UsePageAttributeTable = 1
Custom fan curves

Hope someone manages to find this useful.

What do you all play with it that runs well? I do have favorites already with Open Source like Wesnoth, Urban Terror and 0A.D but some don't run well. I even tried Minetest and it runs slow. Not talking about emulators, just native games.

Steam should show friends that your playing on Linux

When steam has that pop-up saying "Josh is now playing CSGO" it should also say "on Linux". I think it would be a way to get the word out that Linux gaming is on the rise, with steamplay and all. Just a thought.

Friendly reminder: if you liked a game, leave a positive review mentioning Linux

It's clear that Linux sales make up a small percentage of all sales. But there's another way we could make it worth it: by leaving positive reviews (Steam, GOG, others) for games we liked, mentioning Linux. I'm pretty sure reviews are very important for devs, I mean, who doesn't at least skim over them before buying a game?

Now excuse me, I have a couple of reviews to write :)

PS. I wonder if we should leave positive reviews for games that work well with proton too? At least for the ones that are whitelisted.

"Connection to download server lost. Reconnecting...".

I've tried with rockstar support but they just told me that they don't support Linux and they can't help me.

Resident Evil Remaster HD Setup Guide

I took me hours to get this working on Linux so I thought I'd give a guide in one place so others don't have the same problems.

There are two issues currently with RE:HD on Steam Proton, one is the lack of support for .wmv files so cutscenes become unskippable black screens. This is known and hopefully will be resolved in the future. The second is that it runs out of memory so crashes with Err08 after a short time. The good news is both these are fixable though a bit hacky.

For the cutscenes I effectively followed this post but I'll give the fill details here. As that poster states this will need to be redone on a Proton update (unless the issue is resolved).

Create a Wine Prefix if there isn't one:

$ WINEPREFIX=~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/304240/pfx winetricks

Copy the pfx/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Steam/ folder out of that, delete the prefix and create a 32 bit one:

$ cp -r ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/304240/pfx/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Steam/ ~
$ WINEPREFIX=~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/304240/pfx WINEARCH=win32 winetricks

Then install Windows Media Player 10, I also installed a few other libraries but have not tested to see if they're all necessary (I think the last is to stop audio crackling):

$ WINEPREFIX=pfx WINEARCH=win32 winetricks wmp10 d3dcompiler_43 d3dx9 xact_jun2010

Then you have to get the VC-1 codec from KB942423 (which I found on Lutris) and install that:

$ WINEPREFIX=~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/304240/pfx WINEARCH=win32 wine windowsmedia-kb942423-x86-intl.exe 

Then you have to change it back to 64 bit for Proton to work. Create a syswow64 directory in your pfx:

$ mkdir ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/304240/pfx/drive_c/windows/syswow64 

Move the Steam folder made at the beginning of this there to that syswow64 directory and set proton for 64 bit:

$ mv ~/Steam  ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/304240/pfx/drive_c/windows/syswow64 
$ cd ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Proton\ 3.7/
$ sed -i 's/wine64/wine/' proton

The cutscenes will work now, however if you run it quickly you will run into a memory error erro08. Thanks to the other Solus user on Protondb for this game for tipping me off on how to solve this.

You need to use a large memory extender LAA. To do this download CFF Explorer, install with wine and open it. Navigate to games executable bhd.exe and under Nt Headers -> File Header -> Characterstics hit "Click here" and enable "App can handle >2GB addressest". This will need to be redone if there is an update to the game giving a new exe.

After all that it works well on high settings.

I have not been able to get the door skipping mod to work, the exe version I found doesn't detect when the game is running. Other mods where you just replace and .arc file work fine though.

MMORPG classic fantasy-style, easy on the graphics, casual gamer-friendly?

A friend and I want to do some casual gaming and I don't own/plan to own any Windows devices. The other issue is that my PC is only running built-in Intel graphics (can't be graphics-intensive), so I am looking for a classic fantasy MMORPG that's casual gamer friendly (we both have jobs, so can't afford the time to do heavy griming or PVP action). Obviously it should either be available to Linux users on Steam or have a decent Linux client (running Mint 19 and RAM is not an issue). We don't mind paying a reasonable amount (either one-time or subscription) but don't want to mortgage our homes for in-game purchases either. TIA for any suggestions you guys can offer.

Wine wont work on my x86 based android tablet, it will crash after extracting files

Sorry for long post, i hope even through that somebody will help me :)

So i just got super excited (sorry if i misspleled that (or any other) word), when i find that i might be able run some windows apps or maybe even games on my tablet, its asus zenpad 10, runining android 5.0.2, and it has x86 based intel cpu. Dont know what more to say, feel free to ask for logs or any other details, but dont judge me if i ask u how to get them, ill try my best to provide all important details. Also Ill try to edit the post every time someone point to some relevant information that might help u guys :)

What i tried so far:

  • installed wine 4.0-rc3-x86 apk and it crashed straight after extraction which is part of first start, then installed crossover from play store, does the same thing except it didnt crashed after the first start extraction but in the middle of it

What Im going to try:

  • Im going to install wine 4.0-rc2-x86 apk

  • if it wont work im going to restart the tablet and try all of the above again till i get a working wine, if it wont work either i gues i will do a factory reset and try those 3 again

Me too!: Bye bye Ms***

I'd like to share my experience going 100% Linux few months ago, I think we (advanced users) need to share the experience to encourage others to do the same, is possible, we can get out of windows OSes, Is not the same is not perfect, but I think is necessary, and is possible for mostly everyone.

Is something that was in my mind for a long time, one of the main issues few month ago was the GPU, I had a R9 280x it has a poor performance, both drivers crashes in DE composite (Plasma) so I need to change it , and I bought a 1080, everything was fine and stable (Manjaro KDE user here)

Slowly I configure and install every game that I think I should need, and test other software and some needed things

Desktop environment: I play with mostly all desktops during lot of years and always return to KDE Plasma, it resolves all my needs, in my notebook , my bar behave as Mac one with a little integrated taskbar in same bar, in desktop pc, I have a windows like desktop with left taskbar, background images with timed changes, with a fences like configuration (folder widget), dark theme and transparency with desktop effects enabled (animations etc ) without any additional software.

Games: Overwatch was one, Lutris do the job very well. Rocket league, steam supports natively, and PS4/3 controllers works out of the box , triggers works as expected, same for steam controller. Path of exile, steam version works , but with random crashes and shuttering , but via lutris this game work almost perfect with a little shuttering.

Software: OBS perfect Blender as my main video editor Office libre office and I'll buy Kingsoft / WPS

as a developer I have some needs... JetBrains tools are native and exactly as in other OSes Visual studio code Citrix client, native support

And some not needed but happy to exist natively ... Telegram desktop Opera browser Chrome (for streaming services like Prime video or Netflix )

Peripherals: I get rid of my razer wolverine, and I bought some PS4 controllers, I have an ornata Chroma keyboard that has support via open razer , I have a MSI mouse that changes DPI via hardware button, so no software needed.

Steam stream to steam link , perfect performance (Linux host ) Some usb Wifi that I use in emergency situations.

The last windows day was a night that I woke because of HDD noise, after some logging and testing was W10 and nvidia telemetry when my monitor turns off after inactivity, I deactivate that telemetry few times but after some time it turns on again, so that was the last day, and that was my story, if any have some doubts leaving windows , comment below or send a pm, maybe I'll write a blog post with more details

I try to make this post little but explanatory, thanks for reading

Do you recommend Valve's SteamCMD for hosting (Steam) game servers or some third-party tool?

I'm currently stuck with my Killing Floor server and wonder if LinuxGSM (based on SteamCMD) is a clear improvement, assuming that your game is supported. Automated restart in the event of server crash sounds extremely promising, but as a novice user I can't immediately pick other major features outside of installer rules for ~90 titles and built-in server updater.

I assure you that this thread is not a tech-support request for my KF1 server in disguise but a general question as I plan hosting several other games once I get one running and configured.

Vega + Linux + AMDGPU - UI Tool for RPM

Hey

I'm using Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon with Kernel 4.18.0 and I have a problem with the fan speed.

Under Windows 10 the fan's start at 55, so 0 RPM untill I run PUBG but under Linux they start at the system startup (I think abou 500 RPM).

There is no UI and I have no idea how to set the fan speed to 0 RPM. I looking for something like MSI afterburn but I can't find nothing.

Any idea? With Nvidia I also can set 144Hz, on AMDGPU I don't have this option.

Has anyone ran a Killing Floor (2009) server recently?

I eventually got the server installed with extensive help, but I'm now stuck with the required open ports. I've checked the availability of each on my server with Telnet from a remote machine and get telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused error with every port, but I don't know if this means that the port is blocked or only not used at the moment.

I can launch the server with ./ucc-bin server command when in the System folder, but the launch currently hangs after:

UdpGameSpyUplink: Failed to resolve master server address, aborting.

I also get an error about their statistical server:

Couldn't resolve hostname killingfloor-crashreports.icculus.org.

This may be entirely irrelevant as both the crash report server and GameSpy (Arcade) are down. Tripwire has ceased development for the game and the last content update was released in 2014.

I don't see my server in "internet games" in the game (I don't know if direct IP connection is supported in KF1). I've changed the server name in KillingFloor.ini for easier discoverability.

full terminal output:

Missing Class Class Editor.TransBuffer

Does anyone have Blizzard voicechat working using wine?

Just like the title says, I am looking for help getting the blizzard/battlenet voice chat working. I use it while playing world of Warcraft pretty frequently on a Windows install. I have managed to get everything else from Windows working except this.

The audio options in game pick up all my audio devices, but when I go to the voicechat options in the settings menu in WoW, it has no unkown audio device. Can't hear or talk in the voicechat as one would expect.

Any thoughts?

how to play a windows game that is not available in steam?

someone knows how to install games other than steam in linux, for example battlefield 1. I want to install it on my pc with ubuntu 18.04 but I do not know how to launch it, obviously I have to use wine but I would have to run the origin launcher to install the game . The question is can you do that? I say you run the origin launcher and download the game and install it as in windows? and at the time of executing it, would it be the same as in windows?

Games does not work in fullscreen

Hello.

I use Ubuntu 16.04, wine-staging (4.0-rc2) {also tried wine-stable}, nouveau drivers {also tried proprietary nvidia drivers}. I experience problems with running games in fullscreen: I see only black screen, but I hear background sounds from game menu. When I enable virtual desktop emulation, all works, I can play game, except it runs only in 800x600 window even if I set my native (1366x768) resolution in `Graphics` tab. `-w` and `-h` keys are also shadowed by 800x600 settings. It appears in all games I've tried: Dead Space, Witcher, Syberia, Star Wars: Jedi Academy and others.

Status on Ubuntu 19.04 utilizing a Steam snap?

I saw a post at https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/11/ubuntu-19-04-release-features a little while back about Ubuntu 19.04 and one of the things they threw around was using Steam via a Snap package. If you followed Solus in the past few years, the now departed founder Ikey created the Linux Steam Integration (LSI) project for the OS which worked great. On top of that, there was some early implementation on using LSI for all operating systems that supported Snap packaging. I tried it and it was really convenient to have all of the libraries available out of the box. It was very helpful in getting 32-bit Source engine games like Day of Infamy up and running on my AMD RX 580.

Seeing that there hasn't been an update to the Snap package for quite some time, I'd like to see the status on a Canonical/Snapcrafters version of Steam running via Snap. Does anyone know the status on this?

Website or tool for searching for game availability on itch.io, GOG, and Steam?

If you had command line clients for all three, you could write a script or GUI to do it easily enough, but I figured I'd ask if anyone has seen a website or tool do this already. Searched and couldn't find anything.

If a game is on itch.io, I'd rather get it there, as it has an open source client and a bigger cut of the money goes to the devs.

If a game isn't on itch.io, but is on GOG, I'd consider getting it there rather than Steam.

Finally, if a game is only on Steam, I may consider supporting it there, but obviously DRM is bad, Steam doesn't tell you which games actually have DRM, and even if they don't requiring a close-source client to get them is also less cool than the other two game sources.

Dark Souls: Daughters of Ash works on Wine!

Just a few days ago, /u/Grimrukh released Daughters of Ash, a mod adding a huge amount of content to Dark Souls: PTDE. The mod is provided as a .exe, but it's stupid easy to get working with Wine (tested with 4.0-rc2).

Proof: screenshot (the etched ring is an item added by the mod)

  • First off, the mod requires UDSFM. This mod also comes as a .exe, but the author has uploaded the source to GitHub. Go ahead and clone that anywhere.
  • Run unpack_dark_souls_for_modding.pywith Python 2. It will probably complain about missing modules; all are available with pip.
  • When UDFSM is done, download DoA from Nexus Mods. Run the .exe with wine.

That's it! Make sure you also read the installation instructions for DoA, but it's pretty straightforward from here.

I had two issues though, which I'm not sure are caused by the mod: the intro cinematic was black and would not finish, so I couldn't properly start the game, and the game only used the top-left quarter of the screen.

  • The first issue is "fixed" by renaming $DARK_SOULS_INSTALL_FOLDER/DATA/movWW/fprg_opening.wmv.bak. This obviously just skips the intro cinematic.
  • The second issue is fixed by disabling antialiasing from the in-game options menu.

I haven't played beyond Firelink Shrine yet, so I can't say for sure other issues pop up, but it's looking pretty good so far.

Is anyone else having game pad issues with Unity games using Proton?

The short: I've noticed some games hard sticking to up and or left from the moment the game is launched. I haven't tested all of the games I own that use Unity, but the two of note I have currently installed to my testing install are The Initial (it's VERY obvious) and Touhou Luna Nights (it seems to be holding or randomly pressing "up" while attacking, but not left like The Initial). I've used multiple different controllers, wired and Bluetooth, Steam gamepad configuration and not, and they all behave exactly the same.

The reason it seems to be Unity games is that so far it's only been games that I know are made in Unity. In LN's case Mogura Engine 2 is using Unity and is probably part of the reason it doesn't also constantly move left, but I'm wondering if the Unity version used has a general effect on this control issue I'm seeing. Testing the pads with KDE's joystick input testing they work exactly as expected outside of Steam and these games. Other games (that work properly to begin with) work perfectly with with these pads as well.

Being weird enough to try to make it work despite a native version and after almost a year of trying, i've found the right combination : Proton 3.7 Beta + dxvk 0.94 (on lutris).

For those who are searching for a way to launch the WoC mod :

target the executable in the woc sub directory. ../XCOM2/XCom2-WarOfTheChosen/Binaries/Win64/XCom2.exe

fill as arguments : -noRedScreens -review

Doom 2016 with Proton shuts down computer when switching to Vulkan backend

When I switch to a Vulkan backend on Doom 2016 and accept the prompt to restart the game for the new settings to take effect, my entire computer instantly powers down. I haven't experienced a shutdown like this in any other situation and I've played a bunch of other games with steam play and/or Vulkan. I've tried reinstalling the game a few times with no luck. I've previously been able to enable Vulkan for the game in Windows.

I couldn't find a crash log anywhere in the Doom either in the home folder (/home/[user]/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/DOOM) or in proton's doom folder (/home/[user]/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/379720/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/Saved Games/id Software/DOOM/base). I also checked /var/log/kern.log in case it had any pertinent crash information but I didn't see anything there.

Does anyone have knowledge of this behavior or know other places I could look for some kind of an error message?

"ERROR! Failed to install app '215360' (Disk write failure)" when installing original Killing Floor server in SteamCMD

I've installed SteamCMD on Debian from the official repository, I've enabled non-free software following these instructions. I adhere the Valve SteamCMD wiki page and have now moved to the Tripwire wiki page.

When running app_update 215360 validate in SteamCMD, I get ERROR! Failed to install app '215360' (Disk write failure) error. I have logged in with a Steam account as KF1 doesn't support "anonymous login".

Issues with launching SteamCMD

I've installed SteamCMD on Debian from the official repository, I've enabled non-free software following these instructions. I adhere the Valve SteamCMD wiki page.

When running steamcmd I get -bash: steamcmd: command not found error. I suspect that my issues are related to creating a new user account for this program (as is suggested by Valve), I don't know at all how software is run under different accounts on Linux. The problem starts specifically here:

Open a terminal and start SteamCMD.

If you installed it using the package from repositories:

cd ~
steamcmd

Why I must return to the home folder (cd ~)? Does the OS always run SteamCMD on the newly created "steam" user account?

Valve is taking their sweet time approving any worthwhile game for Proton...

Since December, they approved only a couple indie shovelware games that devs probably ported to linux by themselves or something. Did the project fail or something? Because they have like 3 AAA games on their list right now, and 99% are shitty indie games that no one plays. So what's the deal with that? I sure hope they are sitting on 100 freshly approved games they are gonna release once a month or something, otherwise, all of this doesn't make sense...

Gpu passthrough acer nitro 5

Hey guys,

I would like to run Ubuntu or similar on my acer nitro 5 an515 51. I noticed that when in windows on this laptop, the cpu igpu is used for the os and the dedicated 1050 gpu is only used for games. Makes sense to me.

This got me curious, could I run Ubuntu on the igpu and then use gpu passthrough the pass the 1050 to a windows 10 vm? I really wanna run my main machine as Linux but this laptop is mostly used for games :)

How to force vsync off in Linux? (nvidia, dxvk)

Hello, I'm currently trying to play Duke3D 20th anniversary edition in Linux via Proton, and the game has vsync always enabled and terrible mouse lag. In Windows it's recommended to use the Nvidia control panel applet to force vsync off for this game, but how can I do this in Linux?

Things I tried so far:

  • unchecked "sync to vblank" in nvidia-settings => no effect
  • set __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=0 before starting game => no effect
  • disable window manager compositing => no effect (though it seems you can have compositing enabled without forced vsync anyway, unlike Windows)

I bought the game on sale mostly to get an official license for the extra episode to use with source ports anyway, but it'd be nice to be able to play it using the original engine too.

Ok so what if linux sucks for gaming right now, what can we do to fix it?

Be more appealing to our windows brethren? Even though of all the bad things they said about us today. It's not bad if it's valid criticism. So let's put our heads together and figure somethin out.

Battle.net: continuous cpu usage

Hey,

I recently installed the Battle.net app inside an empty 64bit wineprefix with just dxvk and corefonts installed. Today I noticed that the Battle.net app is always using about one fifth of one cpu core, whether it's minimized to tray or with an open window in foreground/background:

(i removed irrelevant processes from the screenshot)

I'm launching Battle.net using the .desktop file that was created by wine on my desktop:

env WINEPREFIX="/mnt/nvme-data/wine-prefixes/battle-net" /usr/bin/wine C:\\\\windows\\\\command\\\\start.exe /Unix /mnt/nvme-data/wine-prefixes/battle-net/dosdevices/c:/users/Public/Desktop/Battle.net.lnk

This is printed to console on start: https://gist.github.com/jkhsjdhjs/b37e8672701d310ce0ed33dd21793f2c

And this is logged when the app is running in background in intervals of about a minute:

00b0:fixme:msvcp:_Mtx_init_in_situ unknown flags ignored: 2
00b0:fixme:msvcp:_Mtx_init_in_situ unknown flags ignored: 2
00b0:fixme:msvcp:_Mtx_init_in_situ unknown flags ignored: 2
00b0:fixme:msvcp:_Mtx_init_in_situ unknown flags ignored: 2

I tried this solution, but as it just fixes high cpu usage of the agent it didn't work (I used /etc/hosts, not the hosts file located inside the wineprefix). I also deleted the cache located in C:\ProgramData\Blizzard Entertainment\Battle.net\Cache, but that didn't change anything either. Furthermore there is nothing being continuously logged to any of the logfiles in C:\ProgramData\Battle.net\Agent\Logs.

A friend told me that it doesn't happen on windows, so I'm posting this here.

Are you experiencing this problem too? I highly appreciate information on how I can debug/fix this problem! :)

Last but not least my system information:

CPU: Intel Core i5-7600K
GPU: nvidia GTX660 (driver 415.25)
Arch Linux (Kernel 4.20.0)
wine-4.0-rc4 (Staging)

How to use PCI-Passthrough on Ubuntu with VirtualBox?

My old PC died and I just bought a new one. Despite my new PC having a lot more power than my old one, it will also support VT-d. Specifically I decided on the i5 9600k. Which, if I got that correctly, would allow me to use PCI-Passthrough.

As I am not eager to setup dual booting and having to boot into another OS (and dedicate HDD space for it) every time I want to play a specific game which is currently not able to run via Proton or Wine, I looked up PCI passthrough.

The question is: How exactly do I set this up when I am using Ubuntu 18.04 and VirtualBox? All the guides I found were already a bit older and sometimes not too specific. So I am not sure if something has changed in the meantime. I would also like to hear if there are any potential downsides of PCI-Passthrough vs Dual Booting.

State of nVidia on laptops, can I get your feedback please?

Hey Folks,

So in the not-too-distant-future, I'm considering getting a Dell e7450 with an nVidia 840m. This hardware selection is extremely specific, so please don't fixate on trying to convince me for other hardware in this discussion, as that's not what I'm hoping to hear from you.

I would like to know what your experience has been with nVidia GPUs on your laptop, and which laptop and nVidia GPU you were using. Was it good? Bad? Why?

I'm primarily getting this laptop as a work horse, but the price bump to get an 840m variant seems to be worth it for some light gaming. I was wondering how that would realistically pan out in Ubuntu, or other Linux distros.

So, what's your experience? :)

All games instantly minimize when launching

Like the title says, all of my games instantly get minimized upon launching. They'll go fullscreen for a half-second then automatically minimize and send me back to the desktop. All I have to do is click on them in the dock and they work fine, but I'd like to fix this if possible. Googling only turns up issues with games minimizing when losing focus on multi-monitor setups, but I'm only using a single monitor.

Anyone else having problems with Linux native games after installing Wine-Staging?

I've recently installed Wine-Staging and Lutris to get some of my Windows-only games to run. I've been able to get BioShock Remastered to run, though things are a little twitchy.

I also have some games (through Steam) that are Linux-native, such as Tomb Raider 2013, Saints Row 3/4, and The Witcher 2. These previously were working fine, but now fail to run.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I've been looking through the Steam logs, but don't see an indication as to what's wrong.

I have previously run into this sort of problem, and I re-installed Ubuntu to get the Linux-native games going again.

Details:

Hardware: i5-3570S, Nvidia GT 740 2GB.

OS: Ubuntu 18.10

Nvidia driver: 415.25

Wine: 4.0~rc4~cosmic

AMD Link on Linux?

Long but irrelevant anecdote for context:

I recently build my first PC and wanted to put Ubuntu 18.xx on it so I could get the amdgpu-pro drivers for my RX570. Long story short: It didnt work. At some point I just went with 16.04 so I had something to work with. This week the 16.04 installation broke and the 18.04 partition magically started to work. (I did some unrelated software update and rebooted) now that I can properly play some games I wanted to know:

Are the gimmicks of the Radeon software adrenaline edition available for Linux? Id love to try them out.

Help me find out the forgotten name of this old Linux game...

Seriously, I've been thinking and searching, without success. So no screenshots to help...

I played this game in the early 2000s. It's a one-screen arcade game. You (and maybe other players) are controlling a ball and need to bash out other enemy balls closing in on you. You can get rid of them by bouncing them into the screen edge, and respectively you die when you get bounced around too much, lose control and touch the edge. Later there are harder stuff, like black holes, big balls etc. It was some great Newtonian fun. :)

Any help is appreciated!

Network multiplayer crash with Anno 1404 Venice

Hi all,

I tried to setup network play with my iMac, running on Mojave, but each time I create a lobby or try to join a game, the game crashes. The directx fix is done, I also installed vcr2005. The crash log is just empty except for:

> 6.01.2019 19:37:24] StackTrace (ThreadID 9, BuildInfo v2.01.5010, LogFile 0):

Perhaps somebody had the same problem and found a solution?

If other information is needed, tell me, I'm not sure what's important.

Thanks!

I've used steam play and games from steam works perfectly, BUT when i'm trying to install GTA V through wine it says i need to install Media Feature Pack which i can't install because as far as I know nothing can open .msu files in Linux.

My only problem is, that EAW is pretty boring, unless you mod it. So, I copied my favorite mod from a usb, and got to work installing it. Problem: The mod gives me a .bat to start the mod, and I have no idea how I should try running this.

Thanks alot to anyone who replies.

Cannot launch some games, native and otherwise

System info:

OS: Manjaro 18.0.2 Illyria

Kernel: x86_64 Linux 4.19.13-1-MANJARO

Uptime: 1d 1h 21m

Packages: 1131

Shell: bash 4.4.23

Resolution: 1920x1080

WM: i3

CPU: Intel Core i5-7300HQ @ 4x 3.5GHz [44.0C]

GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 with Max-Q Design

RAM: 1266MiB / 7841MiB

I have the latest updates (as of my uptime), and this is a weeks old problem. I've deleted many multiple games that I DID carry over from the factory windows 10 install, but I tried everything including deleting and reinstalling them with no luck. I just installed Ravenfield as of about 1 hour ago for the first time and the exact same problem is happening.

Skyrim, Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, Gothic 3, Dishonored, they all launch using proton and work flawlessly or damn near it.

Tabletop simulator, HL2, Geneshift, Mark of the Ninja Remastered, Cave Story +, 7D2D, Cities: Skylines all play pretty much flawlessly, natively.

So it's a little strange that multiple games just plain will not launch - a mix of native and proton - and produce the exact same results: zero output in terminal, and they flash "playing" and then "synching" for a total of about 200-400 milliseconds, then jack shit. No game, no log, nothing. I have "primusrun %command%" in every games launch options, I'm using optimus-manager and have set the nvidia card. I have nothing running except steam and my web browser (which has no effect). I've been using linux for years, in fact I just came to Manjaro from Arch because I wanted to *avoid* these issues because I don't always have time to stay blisteringly up-to-date to avoid issues with missing several weeks of updates. I almost want to return the laptop and just quit gaming. Nvidias bullshit/laziness in the linux realm have really soured my experience so far. I wish I had gone with an AMD laptop.

MGS: Phantom Pain (proton)

Ravenfield (native-ish)

Pathfinder: Kingmaker (native) - I refunded this one because I thought the problem was the game.

Now, heres the retarded bit: Ravenfield does exactly as I said above, but launches instantly when I open the executable in wine. What the actual shit? I'm in the process of reinstalling MGS so that'll have to be put on hold but I believe this boils down to one problem and not many, even though most games work fine.

None of the problem games were transfered from one disk to another, and none are leftovers from windows/previous install. They are all fresh, installed the the same, primary steam library, and have zero mods.

I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, any help would be greatly appreciated. I no longer have hours and hours per day to play games because of my job, so what little time I do have (1-2 hours on average) is being wasted trying to troubleshoot.

Doom (2016) with Intel Graphics

Hey all,

So this apparently works fine on Windows but I can't get the game to properly launch via Wine. It starts up, shows the splash videos but then when it gets to the menu there's simply nothing. I can see the cursor and the music is playing, but the actual menu itself is just black and the game isn't responding to any inputs. That's in Vulkan mode. In OpenGL mode it fails to start entirely complaining about a missing GL extension (which I believe is due to it trying to use compat mode, which games shouldn't be doing).

I'm wondering if the driver's missing something that is needed at this point, but was wondering if anything had managed to get the game working (in any way) using an Intel GPU.

Setup: Kernel 4.20.0-arch1-1-ARCH, Mesa 19.0.0-devel, Wine 4.0-rc5 (Staging Esync DXVK). GPU is an Intel Iris Plus 655.

CS:GO on LinuxMint 19

Hi guys,

I posted this question to the GlobalOffensive subreddit originally, but was suggested I should post it here as well, hopefully this question is more suitable for this userbase.

Anyway, I have the below setup:

- AMD Ryzen 5 1600

- Radeon R9 380X

- 16GB RAM

- game running on SSD

The problem is that I have pretty sever FPS issues. Normally I have around 50-60 (every video settings are set to the lowest), but when some action happens on the screen, then it goes down to 20-30. Depending on the map it can be a little bit better or worse.

I am trying to play on Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon (I know, I know, but still...)

This is the graphics information:

*-display

description: VGA compatible controller

product: Tonga XT / Amethyst XT [Radeon R9 380X / R9 M295X]

vendor: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]

physical id: 0

bus info: pci@0000:07:00.0

version: f1

width: 64 bits

clock: 33MHz

capabilities: vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom

configuration: driver=amdgpu latency=0

Should I be using a different driver, then the by default amdgpu?

I was reading about that and looks like I shouldn't install amdgpu-pro from the official site.

I hope that's not the max fps I can get out of this setup. Can somebody tell me what am I doing wrong?

What FPS do you have on a similar PC?

Do you have any other tips how can I increase my FPS?

Thanks

Wine: Unreal PT

Hi all,

Have downloaded Unreal PT to give it a quick try, and the game seems to run flawlessly on Wine so far. My system is OpenSUSE Tumbleweed with 4.19 kernel, Wine 4.0rc4 with dxvk 0.94.

The game is a remake of PT from the Playstation 4, though I haven't played the original. Obviously we'd prefer a native game but this version will do :-)

Cheers,

We must choose one TOP desktop-distro

As the author wrote in this article

https://www.linux.com/blog/2019/1/7-things-desktop-linux-needs-2019

We must choose "One Distro to Rule them All.

I propose to do a survey, what distr should be the main in the desktop segment.

My suggestion is Manjaro with Plasma DE.

Unreal Tournament 2004 had native Linux binaries and the servers are still up! (Link on how to play ONS-Torlan and CTF-FaceClassic for free via demo included in post)

I did not know this, but Unreal Tournament 2004 had native Linux binaries?! It works great on my (a little bit older) Laptop with Lubuntu.

The best thing: the servers are still up and people are playing!

You can download the demo including ONS-Torlan and CTF-FaceClassic at https://www.moddb.com/games/unreal-tournament-2004/downloads/ut2004-demo-v3334-for-linux/

I followed the installation instructions from the comment at the bottom:

  1. Run gunzip UT2004-LNX-Demo3334.run.gz to unzip.
  2. Then run sudo sh UT2004-LNX-Demo3334.run to install. You should be fine pressing ENTER on every question to select the default settings.
  3. There is a start menu entry for the game which you can click to start it. Or (if you didn't change the installation target directory) you can run it with sh /usr/local/games/ut2004demo/ut2004-demo.

In case of no sound with error open /dev/[sound/]dsp: No such file or directory you can install sudo apt-get install oss-compat and load the module sudo modprobe snd-pcm-oss.

Have fun! :-)

[Help post] steam won't load any pages beyond just the library.

I tried posting this in the thread but that place seems dead for anything new.

All i can do on steam is download, load and thankfully still play games, but i cannot do anything beyond that, no other pages will load, not friends or steam's store.

I've tried reinstalling it, deleting the cache, cookies, download cache and all to no avail. Can anyone help?

Steam Proton : Missing Textures VS Broken Camera

Hi there,

I'm trying to play Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus via Proton. https://steamcommunity.com/app/853140/discussions/

There is an important issue.

  • With no option, the game runs, but the textures of the robots are missing, and i can only see the weapons, making the game hardly enjoyable.

  • With some options, the textures are visible, but the camera is broken, always going fast and by itself to the bottom right corner, making the game unplayable.

Note : i do NOT have any gamepad, joystick etc plugged, only mouse+keyboard.

Note : i tried to change Proton versions, no effect.

So, here are my results so far.

Game doesn't start at all : PROTON_NO_D3D11

Camera broken, textures OK : PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1

Camera broken, textures OK : PROTON_USE_WINED3D

Camera broken, textures OK : -force-vulkan

Pink screen, must Alt+F4 : -force-glcore

Do you know any options that could "fix" this Broken Textures VS Broken Camera challenge ?

Help installing Magic the Gathering: Arena on Mint 19

I've scoured the net looking for help but nothing seems to work. The best resource I can find is the Lutris page, but the instructions don't work for me. When trying to run MTGA, Wine tells me I need to install DX11. After some fiddling and trying to setup DXVK, plus some random clicking, I can get past that error but the game still doesn't run (displays a blue screen then closes after a few seconds). I've tried to go about this a dozen different ways but I'm new to Linux so anything more is beyond me. :)

Space Engineers "works" in steam proton with *major* tweaks!

I've figured out how to get Proton to run Space Engineers and I hope to inform on how to properly replicate it.

Select Proton 3.16-6 as your runner.

Use drivers with STREAM OUTPUT patches. Both NVIDIA and AMD have them available. For brevity I will not include a guide but lots of other helpful ones are available. This is absolutely necessary or your window will be 100x100 pixels and then crash.

First, using (my) system wine 4.0rc4, install dotnet461 and vcrun2015 through winetricks to your proton prefix.

WINEPREFIX=????/steamapps/compatdata/244850/pfx/ winetricks -q dotnet461 vcrun2015

Next set your game version to [1.187], the latest version crashes after about 60 seconds, even if you manage to make it in game. Just give it a SIGKILL if it is stuck for you and get out.

Properties > BETAS > 1.187 Major Overhaul of Multiplayer

And finally for good measure I manually installed faudio directly compiled off of a git repo. This is probably unnecessary to the extreme as steam already packages it but I wanted to be sure before first run.

It works!

Caveats::

Major simulation speed issues, even with majority static unmoving objects the game suffers a degraded simulation speed and will perform notably worse in the CPU department. Probably needs dotnet fixes to smooth things out. Or some decent wine-mono additions down the line would bring it up to par.

You will only be able to use the 1.187 and below release of the game, the software lock totally breaks new versions. Let's hope by some miracle they revert whatever behavior was performed in the latest release. Not holding my breath though...

Voxel generation is absolutely obliterated. Asteroids look fine for the most part, barring some anemic generation around the fringes. Planets however generate massive gaping spikes in the heavens and deep pits descending into a hellish inky black darkness. You can build on top of them. I haven't dare ventured beneath.

World thumbnails are pink. This appears to be fixed in newer wine I have tested through the Lutris client.

I would like to make a shout out to anyone with connections to see if the developers, KeenSoftwareHouse, would appeal to a port compromise by making some additions to the Proton stack that would repair the broken functionality on the game currently. They've had requests for a linux port and even drew a poll that included a linux/mac/xbox port as an option with only 1% support in relation to other areas to target. See if you can contact them and instead of requesting changes to the game's structure to support the workings of Proton, see how warm they'd be to the idea of making changes to Proton to fix the game for the low cost of a few commits to free software!

Could be an opportunity to bring a working game running exclusively on Microsoft dependencies to heel on a free system and doing the same for many others currently utilizing dotnet. Frankly I'm shocked this works back as old as wine 3.16. It turns out the game needed faudio to stop crashing right before the title menu...

Mac And OpenGL 4.3

I'm pretty new to wine, but I want to know if there's any way to use versions of OpenGL past what Mac actually supports, even if it means taking a heavy loss in FPS. The Java program I'm trying to run requires 4.3, and I thought wine might be able to get around this limitation, but I receive this error:

Profile GL4 is not available on WindowsGraphicsDevice[type .windows, connection decon, unitID 0, handle 0x0, owner false, NullToolkitLock[obj 0x8c73f5]], but: [GLProfile[GL2ES1/GL2.hw], GLProfile[GL2ES2/GL2.hw], GLProfile[GL2/GL2.hw], GLProfile[GL2/GL2.hw], GLProfile[GL2GL3/GL2.hw]].

This seems to suggest wine doesn't allow using newer features of OpenGL than what Mac provides. Is this correct, or is there some way around this?

Tried to launch Warframe via Steam Play. Steam would prepare to launch game, but the game never boots.

I recently built a new rig right before Christmas and installed Linux Mint 19.1 as my OS. Wanting to try out Steam Play on Windows-only games, I tested out Warframe. However, I wouldn't even get a chance to test out how well it runs as the game would refuse to boot. Steam would "prepare to launch Warframe", but nothing happens after that. Is it a problem with that game in particular? Do I need to tweak the launch options? Or is it a driver issue?

Steam Controller needs to be paired again after disconnecting

How do I move files around within wine?

So I want to install a mod for Fallout New Vegas, which requires me to move the mod files into a folder in the game files. Only I can't figure out a way to move the files into that folder. For example, I'm on steam in wine, and I go to the New Vegas local files. That opens up the wine a file browser. I can't drag files from the desktop into the wine file browser, but I can see my desktop within the file browser and find the mod files there. However even then I can't a see any way to move those files into the requisite folder. Copy and paste doesn't work. So how do I move the mod files to the game's folder within the wine file browser?

RoE on Linux?

Hey all! I have been reading on it a lot already, and apparently the anti-cheat software for Ring of Elysium won't play nice with Linux.

I've not seen much specific discussion on this with Proton though?

I used to only use Linux (Debian and Arch) but with more and more of my friends getting into PCMR gaming, I switched back to Windows for my gaming PC a while back..and I'm pretty miserable. We love this game though, and I really don't want to stop playing it with them...but I really want to have a Windows free home again, haha.

Does anyone here have experience with RoE? Proton, Wine, Lutris, etc? I plan to test it myself when I can.

Thanks!

Rocket League memory leak

Right off the bat the linux version uses 3,5Gb ram vs 1,5 on windows, but I guess that's fine. What's more problematic though, is that the ram usage increases over time, and after 4-6 matches, it uses around 6gb of memory. I'm using Solus, and it does not matter if I enable the native runtimes via LSI or not. Are there anyone who experiences the same problem?

Getting Vortex to work with Wine 4.0

Currently running Wine 4.0rc4 and giving a few games a try. Skyrim SE works out of the box with nVidia 415.25 and DXVK 0.94 on Ubuntu 18.10. No audio issues. No getting stuck after character creation. Perfect performance. So I figured, it's probably about time I bogged this thing down with mods galore to see how far I can take it.

Problem is, I can't get Vortex to work. Not fully, anyway. Installs fine, though it seems to be 50/50 on freezing with a blank white splash screen, or starting up properly (also with a blank splash screen). No problem. 50/50 is better than nothing. It detects SSE just fine, so I added a mod with the drag and drop feature, where it successfully appeared in the mod list.

However, upon attempting to install the mod, the Vortex window turns white, and the terminal I launched it from shows the following message:

Unhandled Exception:
System.MissingMethodException: Method 'System.Web.Script.Serialization.ScriptIgnoreAttribute.get_ApplyToOverrides' not found.
[ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.MissingMethodException: Method 'System.Web.Script.Serialization.ScriptIgnoreAttribute.get_ApplyToOverrides' not found.

This seems to happen with any mod I've tried, including those of differing file formats (zip, rar, etc.)

winecfg only had dxvk overrides which are installed as per the instructions from the git page. Issue is identical over all operating system configurations.

Anyone had better luck?

So, here is my problem. I abandoned Windows to try playing on Linux, especifically, Solus Budgie 3.999. But every game I try, be it native supported or through Proton's SteamPlay they all have half the framerate I had on Windows 8.1 and double the CPU demand. Why?

So far I've only tested games through Steam: Limbo (Natively Supported), was using ~60% CPU; and Hitman 2 Silent Assassin (Steam Play) used the whole 100% of my poor Celeron. Both cases were also at 90C on both cores.

Here I saw that removing the Mesa drivers and installing the proprietary ones solved the issue for guy there, but I don't know if it's possible with the Intel drivers my system was using on Windows Solus is so much better than Windows and it would be a shame If I need to dual boot windows just to play games.

Best Gaming Distro?

Okay so i actually had Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS installed last week, but GNOME sucks so bad. it looks nice but i hate the lag when you click the grid (Show applications.) and it's also laggy when i move around any window.

everything was going well, but GNOME doesn't really run well on my laptop.

So i ended up deleting my whole linux install, now i have Windows 10 LTSC installed.

I am still on the look out for a good gaming distro, which also looks appealing and has good performance...

How is CrossOver different from Lutris or PlayOnLinux?

I've searched online & previous posts, but couldn't find any info on how CrossOver is better or worth the cost to purchase it, aside from the fact that it's funding the developers of Wine.

I tested the free trial, but it seemed harder to use than Lutris because I couldn't figure out how to add a standalone .exe to start (without an installer).

I'm new to gaming with Linux and would like to ditch Windows completely so I would appreciate any information on this, thank you.

DS4 being recognized as 2nd player gamepad. Only controller plugged in. Solus

My DS4 Controller works fine in most games, however it doesn't run properly in emulation and other games due to be recognized as a second gamepad instead of first gamepad. It is the only controller plugged into my pc.

How can I switch the gamepad to be 1st not 2nd?

On Solus. Thanks.

My email to THQ Nordic for Darksiders Support

Hi everyone-

For those of you who were around, THQ/Nordic at one point indicated a Linux version was in the works for Darksiders remastered and DS2. I believe they lost the core dev in charge of that and cancelled the project.

I believe the time is right to ask them to reconsider a small amount of support - Darksiders 2 appears to me to work flawlessly as is with Proton 3.16beta, and Darksiders 1 seems flawless except cutscenes do not play due to them being in .wmv format. A simple reencode and update and/or optional download would seem to be most of the functional part to getting steam whitelisted.

I will add my letter to the comments. They have a contact form on their website.

[Proton] Choosing between Linux and Windows native versions

Hi all,

As the topic says. I see this has been requested but that's all I've been able to find so far, is this a thing? My resolution this year also is to go 100% Linux and I'd like to see how a couple Linux native versions compare speedwise to running with Wine.

Cheers :D

Tearing in recorded gameplay

I have extreme tearing in my recorded gameplay since a few weeks, maybe it was a nvidia driver update or something else. I searchd long for a solution.

It seems tearfree recording with was not easy possible on cinnamon with nvidia hardware and simple screen recorder (desktop record) obs is no alternative for me. (no hevc support, not all dxvk games work with window record, same tearing if I use desktop record)

At the end the solution was to use openbox with compton and the xrender backend (glx backend has tearing, too). there is still a little bit tearing in some situations but it is a lot better than before.

For fun I did test a bit with ffmpeg again because I wanted to try record 2 audio streams + video streams in one mkv.
If somebody is interested

Is Debian incompatible with Steam games going Online?

I cannot seem to play online with any games through Steam.

Borderlands 2, Rocket League, nothing so far.

Only games outside of Steam, like Minecraft or Star Trek Online work just fine.

I can talk to Friends through Steam, my playing status changes when I launch a game. Steam is not in Offline mode.

Firefox works just fine too...

I just tried a clean Debian 9 Net Install too, followed only these two guides, did nothing else:

https://wiki.debian.org/Steam

https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers

Validated the game files through the Steam client, tried again, no luck.

Checked the router settings forwarded the UDP port range suggested here:

https://support.rocketleague.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001952554-CONNECTION-TROUBLESHOOTING-STEAM-

Even went as far as disabling the router's Firewall.

(I undid the changed to my router after testing, don't worry, because multilayer games from Steam work fine on my Windows OS, but I still wanted to give it a shot.)

Synced ntp pool.

My /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt is in the right location already using Debian.

The TAGame/Logs/Launch.log of Rocket League contained this:

https://privatebin.net/?fc24e73a906413cb#TQmihY7j9PsUucWznfI47AqapxXJFbhHUjTmpr3KzIc=

It does seem to have mismatch errors, it didn't have that before the re-installation of Debian, I think.

Any help would be appreciated! I want to switch over, OSS and Privacy are high on the list now. And I'm willing to try. But I really need help, I have this same issue for a couple of days now.

Xbox TWO [vs] PlayStation 5 [vs] MadBox ???

Saw this in my news feed today

https://www.thesixthaxis.com/2019/01/03/slightly-mad-studios-unexpectedly-announces-console-called-the-mad-box/

What are the chances this thing runs Linux or is a Collab possibly with Valve -- it basically touts the features I would expect from Steam Machines v2 like VR and 60 FPS @ 4k or whatnot.

The linux ditro i use (Funtoo) has decided the removal of multilib, so if i change to kits 1.3 i ll have no multilib and i wouldn't be able to install Steam unless i do chroot, its hard to believe a company as big can not release a native 64 bit version of steam.

Running steam without loading a desktop environment

I feel a bit of nostalgia for the days i had steamos on my self built console. Mainly because using steamos It seems you are really using a console. I ditched steamos essentially because was based on Debian instead of Ubuntu (this means for example the lack of ppas), and because the fact It was very hard to customize. But what i really liked was the fact It didn't load a d.e. , starting instead in steam BPM and forcing everything in full screen (see for example how this Can solve Pes 2018 behaviour as a comparison).

Now

If i want to simulate such a behaviour what Can i do? Afaik there is nothing in gdm,lightdm or something-dm that let me create a xorg+steambpm session without necessarily load a DE.

Got any idea?

Does Discord not like HDMI audio?

Not totally sure if this is 100% on topic but it's an issue I mainly run into while gaming...

I recently got a Sony AVR-DH790 and it's a huuuge improvement over my old speaker system. I even prefer it for headphones. I can play games on their own using it just fine, but talking on Discord is something it can't seem to handle. In 5.1 mode I can't hear anyone at all, and when I change to stereo I can but everyone is very delayed. Any audio in a game I'm playing at the same time also gets out of sync with the animations. Tried restarting it several times with the AVR on different settings, including "pure direct", still doesn't change anything.

Switching back to my USB headset everything works fine no problem. I'm just wondering if this is a Discord specific issue, a Pulse issue, or something else... I do get the problem even if all I'm doing is talking on Discord and not playing a game, all I'm saying is that it affects the game if I do both.

Tools for gaming on Linux with nVidia cards.

Hi there,

I have developed some tools to help assist in gaming on Linux for nVidia users that somewhat provides some of the functionality of MSI Afterburner.

This is based on Conky, so make sure you install that first.

The tools include a script for dynamically controlling GPU Fan Speed based on temperature, a script for toggling Conky to always show on top or be pushed to background, and a custom conkyrc file that displays the time has color-changing numbers for the temperatures on both your GPU and CPU, blue for cold, yellow for warm, red for HOT!

Instructions in the two ReadMe files.

https://github.com/GamingOnLinux/Linux-Gaming-Tools-NVIDIA

Tested and developed on Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon - you may have to alter some steps if you use a different system.

If you like this, please share it with your friends!

What was the best Linux game of 2018 and why?

My new year's resolution: Linux only!

Like most here I used Linux mostly, except for those pesky games that seemed to never really take up on Linux. I've been monitoring Steam Linux titles since the beginning, but as of earlier this year the count was still 80/250 titles on my account, with the best ones not in there. Of course I've been trying to buy games that do run on Linux, but you know, AAA titles man. But, suddenly, Proton!

Around Wine's 1.0 version (2002-ish?), I switched to Linux full-time for about a half year, and got quite a few titles to work, with then bleeding edge Transgaming. Of course, that did not keep up and I got tired with the tweaking required, so I put Windows back on my main (fastest) machine until the 31st. Since Proton came out, and the good reports over the last half year, I made up my mind: 2019 is the year of Linux on my desktop (and only Linux). Just in time for the new year, the setup completed, and yesterday I started GTA V and. it. just. werks.

Fantastic work! Although I'm late to bury Windows, this time thing are looking much more rosey than 2002 for gaming. Naturally, all other tasks I already executed mostly in Linux, and I feel good about not having to care about making things work in Windows anymore.

I'll stop my blogpost right here. Just wanted to share with you, and thank those that made this possible, and that I think includes the community that continued to push and ask for solid support for games on Linux. Cheers and have a great 2019!

Want to switch to Linux but always got back to Windows

Hello Linux users !

I am overthinking about switching to Linux for a few weeks ! I always try but end up getting back to Windows each time. I don't want to dual boot (it is annoying !), I am also thinking of VT-d but not sure it is the ideal solution. I really want to go to Linux but I have a few concerns, I hope that you can help me overcome them.

But first, my config : Intel Core i7 8700K NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti (stuck with nvidia since I have a G Sync monitor, I might should have chosen AMD if I knew) 32 GB RAM A few sound cards I own : SoundBlaster Z, SoundBlaster Omni, ASUS Essence STX II (I guess ASUS for Linux, but I had some crackling audio when I use Smart Volume Normalization in Windows, this is not a good point ...)

It is a powerful gaming rig and I intend to use its full power. I use my rig for everything, not only gaming.

My concerns (in order of importance) :

1- Hi-DPI ... I use two monitors, both 2560x1440 144 Hz, Hi-DPI in Linux is a pain for me ... Except for KDE, but I am not in fond of this DE. I heard Wayland handles it, but it is not mature enough compare to X.Org. Or maybe I am saying complete bullshit, let me know if it is.

2- Audio : I hate adjusting volume on some medias, in Windows there is a "Loudness Equalization" or Smart Volume for proprietary softwares/drivers (ASUS or Creative).

3- GPU fan curve settings, I did not find a convincing tool except nfancurve

4- Other hardware accesories such as Xbox Wireless Adapter (I have an Xbox One Elite Controller), but it is not a major concern.

5- Windows only softwares, but this is the least of my concerns, Wine should do the trick, I mainly think of MS Office.

I am ready to give up some games, but with Steam, Proton, Wine, DXVK, Lutris, I should be able to play most of them.

I am not afraid of using the command lines, but I try to avoid. I prefer GUI instead of command lines, please don't hate me :) I am maintly considering switching to Linux because I like the philosophy, to feel I control my system and not the other way around. I don't really care about privacy, but if I have a choice, I'd rather take it. I sincerely don't have any problems with Windows at all (some Linux users exagerrate with Windows Updates for example), it works well with me, it is only a matter of philosophy.

So, is Linux for me or not ? :)

Install Company of Heroes 2 windows version on Linux (Steam Proton)?

Because of technical difficulties CoH2 Feral's native port to Linux does not support crossplatform multiplayer (Win-Lin specifically). Since there are around ~5-10k online players and Linux usage on Steam is around 1% that means it's virtually impossible to find anyone to play with.

My question is: can anyone provide a tutorial on how to install windows version of CoH2 on Linux? Because of native port, there is no Lutris config and you cannot choose the platform on Steam play.

I tried Native2Proton - it downloaded the Win version of the game, I added the non-steam game, edited the launcher option, clicked play and... nothing happened.

I also tried to download the Win version via SteamCMD and then run /path/to/Proton-newest-version/proton run /path/to/RelicCoH2.exe adding various environmental variables like LD_PRELOAD but without luck - the command runs and nothing happens.

Any help would be highly appreciated!

Frustrations with state of linux graphics

This is both a request for advice as well as a little bit of a rant.

Let me explain why I am frustrated right now.
I am running a laptop with a dedicated nvidia 1060 as well as the intel igpu. I currently can switch between the two using prime-select and a system reboot. The state of optimus is a mess. It broke when I updated to Ubuntu 18.04 and only through extensive searching have I at least allowed it to work after a prime-select and reboot. Additionally it seems everyone is out of date with the newest state of prime/optimus/bumblebee and gives bad advice. It takes a long while to sort out exactly how to get things working.

Additionally something funky is going on with vulkan drivers. I have to type 'sudo vulkaninfo' after each reboot before vulkan applications will work. This includes anything running with DXVK and any native vulkan games (for example, the new valve game 'Artifact'). Here is an example of someone with the same issue. I have seen these posts all over so this is not an isolated issue for me: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1090945/ubuntu-18-04-vulkan-stopped-working-nvidia-drivers-proprietary

This also doesn't even begin to describe the pain of always having to figure out what broke every time the drivers are updated or I update my OS.

So all of this has led me to conclude I should stop using nvidia graphics cards. But what laptop can I get that has a dedicated AMD gpu? Is there one powerful enough to play all the modern games? Another option would be to get a laptop without a dedicated card and instead use an egpu. My current laptop is a razer blade and supports this. But then I have to haul around a box in order to play any games (since intel igpu doesn't support vulkan and its too slow for some games).

Is there a better solution? Lets assume price is no issue.

How is everyone else feeling about the current state of graphics and drivers in linux?

Linux Local Multiplayer Bonanza - Compatibility and Experiences

I was in my home town for the holidays, and took a gaming laptop with Ubuntu 18.04, four wireless Xbox 360 controllers, and an Xbox wireless receiver down with me. I took every opportunity to use them. Here's what I found.

Setup:

PC: Acer Aspire V15 Nitro

Graphics Card: GTX 1060

Inputs: 4 x Wireless Xbox 360 Controllers

XBOX 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver

Wireless Mouse and Keyboard

Xbox 360 controller setup.
After plugging in the dongle and turning in the controllers, they paired automatically. This step was actually easier than with Windows 8, where I invariably needed to manually set the receiver drivers.

Steam setup.
Followed the instructions on the steam website, including enabling the Steam Play beta feature for Wine/Proton Windows compatibility in Linux.

3d card setup.
Followed instructions to get latest Nvidia drivers here: http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/how-to-install-latest-nvidia-drivers-in-linux

The linked directions are out of date, though. I used Ubundu 'Software & Ubdates' to update to nvidia-driver-415.

TV setup.
Video worked out the box.
I could not get sound to play over HDMI for any amount of love, money, time, effort, research, or sacrifices to All-Mighty Utnubu. Annoying for movies, but it was not noticeable for game nights, when everyone's talking over the game anyway.

The games!

I'll go through the games I tried, any technical issues, and a brief comment on our experience. I'll also give a rating on a three star system:

3 stars: Would play whenever I had the chance.

2 stars: Enjoyed, but wouldn't be the first thing I'd bring out.

1 star: Not worth playing.

Unless otherwise noted, all of these games were launched via Steam.

Full controller support, up to 4 player:

Towerfall, Ascension
The best SSB clone that shares no mechanics with SSB. Up to four player ranged and melee arena combat. Intuitive controls that reward skill, wraparound arenas that reward awareness and planning, and lagging players are kept in the game with fair buffs and item hijinx that keep things close without ever feeling like blue shell BS. This was consistently the favorite, both in co-op and competitive. Teach the controls with an early Coop stage, then get into Competitive. Easy to get into and learn, this game is like an engine for generating 'did you see that?' moments. This would be a strong contender for my favorite local multiplayer game of all time.

***

Overcooked
Fun with the right crowd. Coordinate to assemble meals, until you're operating like a well cooking oiled machine.

***

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
A game of communication and puzzle solving. Only one player can see and manipulate the bomb, while the others have the manuals on PDF/printouts. I convinced my manager that playing this on company time would qualify as a team building exercise.

**

Spelunky
Lots of fun in co-op or competitive. Coop requires patience, caution, practice, and a high tolerance to/resistance in engaging in trolling.
Battle mode was chaotic fun.

***

Worms Reloaded
The controls took a while to figure out (). It only detected one controller, so we had to pass it around between turns. There was a bit of faffing to get into a game (even using the default teams), so you might want to give this a test before you invite people around. In fact, that would be my single biggest piece of advice: test these games by yourself before you share them. It's a bit of an embarrassing buzz kill to be fumbling around trying to get something working.

**

Bro Force
Big dumb fun. Move to the right and hold down fire. Nice semi competitive element at the end of the level, where you jump on the Choppa and abandon your friends.

**

Nexus
Flashy, sparkly, but kinda toothless dual stick shooter.

**

Jydge
Nexus is the spiritual successor to this game. It worked fine, but we didn't play much.

?

Ultimate Chicken Horse
Every round, players add elements to a level, then compete to be the first (or only) player to make it to the goal. Nice idea, but it can be easy to make a level practical unwinnable. This can be frustrating for players with weak platforming skills, and boring if they get wiped out early.

**

Hidden in Plain Sight
Just about worth the price of admission for the Race mode alone. Simultaneously try to have your avatar blend in with the NPCs as you sneak to the finish line, while identifying and sniping your rivals. Great for head games and trash talk.

***

Crawl
I want to love this game. Amazing visuals and sound design, with a premise where ghost players fight to be the one to murder and usurp the role of the hero player. The combat never felt right to me, and endings were often anticlimactic.

**

The Cave
This game was a joke, coop. The game appears to be designed for a single player, switching between characters to solve puzzles. The coop mode? Give each player control of a different character! Unfortunately, the camera only follows one player at a time, and the game requires you to split up to solve button/door puzzles. So it's functionally one player, taking turns to have focus.

*

Full controller support, 2 player:

Tooth and Tail
Gorgeous game that distills the essence if RTS into something that can be controlled with a controller, by maneuvering a General unit. Direct either your whole army, or a specific unit type, to attack or retreat to your position. The local multiplayer is limited to 2 player split screen skirmish maps, against each other or the AI. Fun enough for a few rounds. Some of the randomly generated maps were comically unbalanced.

**

Human Fall Flat
Ran, and worked with controllers. Not further tested, as it only supports 2 player split screen, and we had 4 players that night.

?

Nidhog

2 player fencing game, with a focus on feints and counters. Between choosing your stance, when to thrust, parry or counter, duck, jump or throw your weapon, it's like rock-paper-scissors squared in real time.

***

Playable on keyboard only.

You Don't Know Jack 4: The ride - up to 3 player
Trivia game for up to 3 players. Fun, but the host can be cringeworthy and long-winded at times. You're mostly using the keyboard to buzz in and pick an answer, so worked fine snuggling up with the keyboard on my lap.

**

Genital Jousting - up to 4 player
Minigame collection that gets more milage from its theme than from its mechanics. Only 4 buttons per player, so... also... worked fine, snuggled up on couch, with keyboard on my lap.

Non steam games - Full controller support, up to 4 player

Kaiju Super Datetech
Work with your friends to build a rolling, tumbling contraption which is both stable enough to make it to the finish line, and tall and sexy enough to seduce Godzilla. Slap bits on as you progress, and be pragmatic about what way up is 'down'. This was great fun.

***

Totemori
Build the highest tower, knock down or usurp your competitors towers. Pretty, quick to get into, with an intuitive interface. This game shines on a technical and artistic level, but falls down in that the box stacking/knocking over game play is chaotic and not much fun. You will frequently be stunned, which can be a boring, frustrating experience.

*

Did not run - reviews, where given, are from prior Windows experience - Up to 4 player.

Streets of Rogue.
Interesting real time roguelite that tries to do everything. Did not run via steam, but interestingly the game is listed in itch.io as being Linux compatible.

**

Mount your friends
I've had a lot of fun playing this competitively, with the following rule-set: play the default single player mode, and pass the controller around for each climber. The player that doesn't extend the height loses the round. Last player to lose a round loses the tournament. Losing 2 rounds eliminates you from the tournament. This is the same ruleset I use in Jenga.

Initially ran, but exited when any input was pressed.

Ran, but did not detect controllers - unplayable with shared mouse/keyboard. (Apparently) 4 player:

We need a tool like ProtonDB for native games

Proton is all new and shiny and it has this great community effort called ProtonDB, where we can easily check if the game runs, how it runs, what are some needed workarounds, there's even a browser extension that shows ProtonDB rating directly on the Steam page. It's absolutely great, but I increasingly feel that native games could use some of that as well.

Some time ago I started a steam curator focused on listing whether a given (Linux native) game works, how it works etc. But it's futile. It's too much for one person and also my results can be totally different than someone else's. That continuously leads me to thinking that having a tool like ProtonDB for native games would be immensely useful.

If we could just list a game and our specs (same as on ProtonDB), and (a bit differently) have a checklist to say if the game actually runs, is completable, unlocks achievements, works in fullscreen, has sound etc. etc. There are some problems typical for Linux ports, as well as some typical workarounds. I feel such a community-driven database would be even more useful than ProtonDB. I really hope to see it live and I'll be sure to fill it up regularly.

Native Linux Game vs. "Wine-Optimized" in terms of dev time?

We all know that sometimes, native linux game ports have to be completely recoded. However, since Proton, Wine, Lutris, DXVK made such a huge jump forward in 2018, i'm wondering how much more dev time it would take, if the devs would just code their game as "normal" Windows Version and make a Version that runs on Proton/Wine and support Linux that way?

There are many games thar already run pretty good, but some are just impossible to run, because of the way a launcher or something else has been coded, that's not really essential to playing the game - Elite Dangerous for example. The launcher runs some stupid .Net Version that's an absolute PITA to get running on anything. Assetto Corsa's Menu-System is pretty much the same stupid stuff...

Wouldn't it be a lot easier for the devs to just make sure it's compatible with some standard stuff that is working good in Proton/Wine?

[Meta] Could a new rule be added for positive brigading?

The What

/r//linux_gaming(and other Linux subreddits) currently allows posts linking to online polls, forum posts, or other mediums for gauging user interest in Linux/Linux gaming.

The Problem

Users from /r/linux_gaming(and other subreddits) participate in the linked medium when they have no intention of actually using or buying the software.

The Short Term Affect

Polling mediums are inflated with data from Linux users who have no actual interest in using or buying whatever the poll is about. Developers and content creators think that their game/app/whatever is going to be reasonably successful on Linux and as a result put lots of time and effort into it.

The Long Term Affect

Developers look at sales data and realize that their game/app/whatever isn't as popular with the Linux crowd as their polling showed. They either abandon current Linux support or won't support Linux in the future.

When this becomes public and made aware to subreddits like /r/linux_gaming, Linux users turn on the developers and say things like the ones found here:

"This is why Proton is important. So we don't have to put up with some game devs."

"So they're blaming the OS because they couldn't make the game stable?"

"So he doesn't care about his own backers? Good riddance. Make better games next time."

And more. These kinds of comments aren't exclusive to that thread either. This is a frequent occurrence on these type of topics.

The Proposal

Don't allow posts directly linking to polling mediums or forum posts AND directly asking to promote Linux/Linux Gaming in the title.

The AND bit is kind of important. I'm personally of the opinion that polls should be allowed if they make it clear to only participate if you are actually interested

An example thread topic title:

Good: " would like your input on whether or not they should bring their game to Linux. Please show your support if interested."

BAD: " would like your input on whether or not they should bring their game to Linux. Show your support!"

In other words, bringing attention to something is OK. Asking or implying to artificially inflate user interest polling is not.

The Solution's Problems

Clearly there is no way to prevent users from artificially inflating user interest polling. It's going to happen regardless even if no call to action is made.

Likewise, whenever posts about developers getting frustrated with developing their software are made this rule change doesn't magically mean that people will be understanding.

However, I think a rule against positive brigading is still worthwhile as it at least makes it clear that positive brigading is against the rules and you shouldn't be doing it.

Can we maybe have a rule be put in place, please?

Batocera Linux question

Hello everyone,

I have been doing RPI gaming for quite some time and I am trying to dabble in repurposing a lot of old laptops to become dedicated mobile gaming machines. this is how i found the Batocera setup.

The inlcuded games work just fine on my HP Mini 1000 Yet I am having some issues getting my n64 rom to work on it. I copied over mario kart and everytime i run it, i get a black screen and it returns me to the main menu. Anyone encounter similar issues? I messed around with emulator settings but every variant gives me the same result.

Thanks in advance!

Still scratching my head about getting GTA5 to work even with scripts

Hi there,

I'm still having a hard time getting Grand Theft Auto V to work.

With my Social Club version I used this obviously recent installation script that seemed to get the game to work too.

Since the Social Club Launcher always just goes down to 0kbit/s in download for me under Linux, I wasted one hour to copy the game files from Windows to my Linux partition.

Seemed to work - which is great and the most progress I experienced so far - the game updates properly, shows the intro video before the loading screen appears.

From here however, the game just happens to load infinitely as I can't progress anymore and stuck on that loading screen unless the window gets closed.

So I'm just so helpless as to ask again if someone could help me out with getting ingame here.

Would be great if someone could :D

Nvidia tester needed...

Hey /r/linux_gaming, I am working since some time on a graphical system utility that provides information and allows to control overclock and fan speed of a modern Nvidia card.

https://i.redd.it/96mhjq0z0u721.png

(screenshot)

Currently I'm working on controlling the fan using a profile curve, instead of just setting a fixed value like the official Nvidia Settings software does (just to be clear, this feature is not implemented yet).

After that I am planning to add a separate screen with several chart showing how the values change over time, in a similar way to what GPUZ does on Windows.

I'm still heavily focusing on the code so I don't have a proper documentation available yet (just an half done readme with installation instructions).

Currently I'm looking testers with Nvidia cards (duh) willing to try an alpha build of the software and report issues/provide feedback.

The app should be quite safe to use, if you don't mess too much with the overclock and power limit features (in the end it's just a front end for the official nvidia-smi and nvidia-settings CLI tools).

If you are interested just write here or PM me. The app will be released under GPLv3 license and I can already provide full access to the code if you are interested.

Is there a way to run, for example, a FitGirl release, and install and run it on Linux?

Say you have a scene release, which obviously intended for a Windows OS.

If a particular game works properly with Proton with Steam. Would it be able to be played and installed through a scene release installation?

Does anyone perhaps even have experience with this?

Sorry if I'm unclear as to what I'm trying to ask here, before I try and make the switch from Windows to Debian myself. Or if this is against the guidelines to ask. (It didn't seem like it to me.)

Messed up my Proton install

Running Linux Mint 19, something of a noob when it comes to Linux.

So I discovered Proton just yesterday, and promptly attempted to install it via the git repo, got stuck in the instructions after setting up the build system. I realised shortly after this that apparently the whole process can be achieved through simply activating Proton via the Steam beta participation options in settings (I'm not sure this is correct, but none of the guides I've found to installing Proton mentions any other steps than this), so I tried doing that -- now I get my Windows games listed in the library as available, and they install and run updates just fine, but none of them work when I try to run them. My first thought here is that I somehow messed this up with the half-assed initial install, so I tried simply removing the opt directory I made for Proton during the initial install, remove and reinstall Steam, but none of this doesn't seem to do anything.

This seems like a fairly specific problem, so I doubt I'll find much help for it anywhere, and as mentioned I'm not exactly a Linux wizard, so... any good tips for how to sort this mess out?

Hello

I just found this group. Finally found my people!

I've had a Dual-Boot Linux/Windows box at home for years and finally switched over fully to Linux for gaming after I upgraded the storage to NVME and didn't want to waste the extra power on a Windows install.

I'm really pleased with how well the transition has been. Most of the games I play work fine (either natively or with Proton). Steam hasn't denied me a refund yet (only needed two so far) for a game that hasn't worked on Linux, even though I'm not running a supported OS (I'm running Arch).

Happy new year to everyone! Game on! ;)

Good news Yakuza penguins ( Proton - Yakuza 0 heavy / special / heat attack crash fix)

As people from the ProtonDB may be aware, there is a bug in Yakuza 0 that crashes the game when you try to do a heavy attack; though some had no problems. Fortunately, I got involved, going off previous info from the DB, and bumbled right over the solution, which a smarter person was able to point out on GitHub: The bug occurred when the path to the game included a folder with a "." in the name. So basically:

  1. On steam, go to Settings -> Downloads -> Steam Library Folders
  2. Add a library, a folder that doesn't have a "." anywhere in it's path. Mine was "/home/[user]/Yakuza0".
  3. Install Yakuza 0. At the bottom of the install pop-up, you'll be able to choose your library.
  4. After installing you should go back to your Steam library folders, as it will make your Yakuza 0 library the default.
  5. Das it, happy new year!

I'll make me own ProtonDB entry later, but I've got plans tonight :)

Esync, worth it for DOOM, maybe others

Hey Folks, so I just finished upgrading my nVidia drivers to 415.25, Vulkan to 1.1.92 and more ( details on gains here ).

Then I figured I would try Quake Champions via STEAM Play with this new setup. The performance didn't really seem better, so I went digging. Somehow I came across the info that Quake Champions runs better with Esync, and I followed this guide to do an A/B test.

Quake Champions did play better with Esync on, but marginally. It is now effectively "playable" in my opinion, on my really old rig.

Then I tried DOOM, and OMFG IT WAS WORTH IT. A/B testing I went from 60FPS to 90-110FPS in the same scene! And so far as I can tell all I changed was prepping for Esync (after the driver and such changes). I even retested my DOOM findings with a browser open (Chromium) with a Youtube video paused and some reddit stuff, and the performance was just as awesome! :O

I was sceptical about Esync, but it seems DOOM benefits MASSIVELY from it, and others may too. So consider following the linked guide for Esync. It's not a lot of work, and when it's available, it seems to pay off.

How I got setup with ubuntu/deb packages for Vulkan >1.1.88 (needed for Stream Output in DXVK 0.90+ & others)

The Lutris script from Overwatch was updated Dec 30 2018, and I was still on a rather older install of Overwatch using DXVK 0.80. The newer Overwatch Lutris script uses DXVK 0.94.

So I figured, hey, let's see if updating is worth it... and really, it was. But let me tell you what I had to do to get the Vulkan packages, because I cannot find a PPA that serves higher than Vulkan 1.1.82. FULLY DISCLOSURE, I'm not 100% sure if Stream Output is working with my method, but I THINK it does.

In this process, I also upgraded my nVidia drivers from 410 ( 410.78-0ubuntu1~gpu18.10.1 ) to 415 ( 415.25-0ubuntu0~gpu18.10.1 ) from the Graphics Driver PPA. This looked to be a requirement for Stream Output and latest DXVK versions.

I'm on:

  • Ubuntu 18.10 + XFCE4 + Compiz
  • i7 980x (CPU released in 2010 btw)
  • nVidia GTX 960
  • 24GB RAM
  • Spinning Rust drive (things seem to load faster now though after doing this...)

I arrived at the need to upgrade my Vulkan packages to newer versions, as the DXVK wiki docs say you need at least 1.1.88 to get Stream Output working, and I was on 1.1.82. The challenge was real, no PPA would serve higher than 1.1.82, even the Graphics PPA (CMON GUYS!). So I went hunting through the inter-butts, and found my solution.

I downloaded, and used "dpkg -i" to install, these packages (install libvulkan1-i386 BEFORE amd64):

Take note that LunarG.com is actually a/the primary developer of Vulkan SDK and other such things. So this is an official source.

These packages install Vulkan API 1.1.92, and when you "vulkaninfo | less" it shows "Vulkan Instance Version: 1.1.92". HOWEVER, "vulkaninfo | grep api" reports "apiVersion = 0x401054 (1.1.84)", and the DXVK HUD shows 1.1.84 too, so that's very confusing.

At this point, that's really all I did from a package perspective. Installing Overwatch from Lutris Dec 30 2018's script still has one minor hiccup (solution here : https://www.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/comments/abah99/lutris_overwatch_dec_30_2018_required_dll_could/ ).

Do also take note, this change to Drivers and Vulkan API should give me (and you) better performance in other games too, such as Quake Champions and others : https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/135 & https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/695

So... what are the RESULTS of this change? I gained a substantial amount of FPS! Please take these stats with a grain of salt. My computer is old as fuck, and I have ALL settings on LOW and AA is OFF too. These stats are also me running around as Junkrat in the Training map (target practice).

First:

  • overwatch testing, pre re-install, DXVK 0.80
  • FPS in practice range: 90-110FPS, peak 130FPS
  • nVidia Driver: 410.78-0ubuntu1~gpu18.10.1
  • vulkan: 1.1.82

Second:

  • DXVK 0.94 (latest Lutris Script as of Dec 30 2018)
  • FPS in practice range (after shader cache built): 110-135FPS, peak 140FPS
  • nVidia Driver: 410.78-0ubuntu1~gpu18.10.1
  • vulkan: 1.1.82

Third:

  • DXVK 0.94 (latest Lutris Script as of Dec 30 2018)
  • FPS in practice range (after shader cache built): 125-140FPS, peak 150FPS
  • nVidia Driver: 415.25-0ubuntu0~gpu18.10.1
  • vulkan: 1.1.92 (reported Vulkan API by HUD - 1.1.84???)

As you can see, the newer DXVK version, Graphics Drivers and Vulkan API gave me a very substantial FPS gain. Now let's see what the final setup is like with Medium and Epic settings, for the lolz.

Medium Preset Settings:

  • DXVK 0.94 (latest Lutris Script as of Dec 30 2018)
  • FPS in practice range (after shader cache built): 75-95FPS, peak 100FPS
  • nVidia Driver: 415.25-0ubuntu0~gpu18.10.1
  • vulkan: 1.1.92 (reported Vulkan API by HUD - 1.1.84???)

Epic Preset Settings:

  • DXVK 0.94 (latest Lutris Script as of Dec 30 2018)

If you find this info helpful, please upvote and comment. Also, I am building a website for my brand (BloodyIron) which will cover Gaming on Linux stuff like this (including YouTube videos), and other things. If you want to check back in the next few weeks, you should be able to find it at bloodyiron.ca (but it's not yet publicly accessible).

NVIDIA changing power management limit is not supported for GPU

I'm trying to undervolt my GTX 780 because I have a shitty PSU but when I try it says this:

Changing power management limit is not supported for GPU: 00000000:10:00.0.
Treating as warning and moving on.
All done.

Is there something I can do about this?

Lutris - Overwatch - Dec 30 2018 - Required DLL could not be found - "Solution"

I figured I'd try my hand at updating my Overwatch install through Lutris, to see if I get an FPS gain. So far, it's looking good.

But there's a weird issue I've encountered and I wanted to share my solution.

First, I'm on...

After I install Overwatch via Lutris and run Battle.Net, I get the error "A required DLL could not be found. Please download and reinstall Battle.net".

Now, with how good the Lutris scripts for Overwatch have been, this is annoying that I'm getting this. So what do I do?

Set DXVK for Overwatch to 0.80, launch Overwatch (battle.net), it will take you to login. Then close it, and set it back to 0.94 (latest as of this writing).

Yay now it should work! \o/

abysmal performance in civ V and civ VI

Hi,

I just recently assembled my desktop PC.
Specs include:

  1. Ryzen 2600
  2. Amd rx 570
  3. 16 gb ram 2400 mhz dual channel
  4. nvme samsung drive 250gb + micron 1100 250gb

I am using Xubunu 18.04 with kernel:

The thing is that games like Metro redux run on ultra fhd always over 100 fps and I've even managed to run witcher 3 with dxvk to run around 50-60 fps in fhd.

When I lunch Civ V/VI both stumble around ~20 fps.

Out of ideas i reinstalled os (thought that maybe playing around with drivers I've messed sth up)

What could possibly the reason for that behavior?
I was getting something like that on my notebook with intel hd 4000.

AMD users, what performance impact did 4.20 have on your games?

I downloaded the new kernel thinking it would perhaps increase my FPS by about 10% tops, but it ended up increasing Artifact's FPS from 15 to a solid 60 all maxed out, and Dota 2 from 45-55 to 70-100 with lower settings. Are you guys seeing similarly astonishing increases or is my laptop just an edge case? I have a Ryzen 2500U and RX 560X on this thing, and I'm guessing they simply added better support for the new Ryzen chip?

Playonlinux 5 redundant?

With advances of Lutris and q4wine, with compatible winetricks, would you say POL5 is no longer going to be needed?

I also notice a lack of development.

GTAV missing character models

After install, I got the error 9 from the social club, so I used winetricks to force install of corefonts, and now the game loads. But the game is missing character models:

https://imgur.com/NGluRAC

I've tried PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 as well as DXVK_CONFIG_FILE=/home/$USER/dxvk.conf:

dxgi.customDeviceId = 67DF

dxgi.customVendorId = 1002

I've tried almost every permutation of settings in graphics. for FXAA on/off, MSAA off/x2/x4/x8, VSync Half/Off/On, etc. The game performance seems good. Graphics are otherwise good. I can set the resolution to 800x600 or 1920x1080. Same performance and same models missing. I've also tried Proton 3.7-8, 3.16-4 and 3.16-6 beta. Video Memory used even with all settings maxed out is still only like 3gb out of the 8gb available.

Here are some extra screenshots. Some of the models show up during the cut scenes. Here's T loading the cash: https://imgur.com/8dAOWWt

And then the guard grabs Michael and you can see both models: https://imgur.com/tfnFlha

But when I switch to T to shoot him, both disappear except for Michael's hair: https://imgur.com/qytjngP

I've been googling for a couple of days but haven't actually run across anyone else with this issue. The only thing I've seen is one person mentioning to use the open source driver instead of the amd gpu pro driver, which I'm using. I'd prefer not to mess with that if I don't have to since that would surely impact some other games that I'm running. I'll try a different system with same hw and open source driver next week and report back.

If anyone has ran into this issue and had any luck getting past it, help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

How to increase mouse scroll wheel speed without imwheel?

My current mouse is the Logitech G203 Prodigy and I am looking for a way to increase the mouse wheel scroll speed without using the imwheel program.

I could not find a setting in the Logitech Gaming Software in Windows, but back when I was using Windows I used an AHK Accelerated Scrolling script which worked perfectly.

But now that I have switched to Linux, I cannot use that. imwheel does work in the regular desktop environment, but in games like Star Trek Online it works until I click on an internal window in the game then it reverts to the slower scroll speed. The game does not have a way to increase scroll speed natively.

Anyone have any solutions on how I can propagate imwheel into a game window, or any other alternative programs similar to https://autohotkey.com/board/topic/48426-accelerated-scrolling-script/

OS: Manjaro Linux 18 with GNOME.

wine32 low resolution graphics

I was playing Oblivion under wine in my Debian Stretch install. It worked perfectly with high details and smooth graphics, all I had to do is download d3dx9 using winetricks (because of the black skin bug) and tick the box 'emulate a virtual desktop'.

A week ago I moved to Linux Mint because Artifact needed newer vulkan drivers. I was using Mesa 13.0.6 in Debian and now I am using Mesa 18.0.5 in Mint. After installing a 32 bits wineprefix I noticed that the fonts in the winecfg menu have a poor resolution. The fonts in winecfg (which uses a 64 bits wine I think) look normal. Then Oblivion installs in the 32 bit prefix and it suggests that the best graphics configuration is 'very low'. The game runs only with very low graphics, otherwise it crashes.

These are some system outputs:

Using Reshade with Proton?

I'm playing Elder Scrolls Online via Steam with Proton (3.6.16-6 Beta) without any issues currently. Currently getting ~60 FPS on Max settings but I really wanted more eye candy by using ESO Graphics Extender which is based on Reshade.

It was already reported in this subreddit that Reshade is working with DXVK master using Lutris overrides..etc. Is there a guide on getting this to work with the latest Proton? I tried to run this command directly:

PROTON_DUMP_DEBUG_COMMANDS=1 STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH=/evo/SteamLibrary/steamapps/compatdata/306130 "/evo/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/Proton 3.16 Beta/proton" run "/evo/SteamLibrary/steamapps/c

ommon/Zenimax Online/Hook64/Hook64.exe"

But then keep getting this OpenVR error, which I have no idea how it is related.

Proton: Missing or invalid openvrpaths.vrpath file! [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/knro/.config/openvr/openvrpaths.vrpath'

I'm considering buying a gamepad or two - what should I get?

tl;dr I think I should buy some gamepads, but I fear buying expensive, crappy, and/or Linux-incompatible (that is, not driverless) products.

OK, this needs some context so you know where I'm coming from. Until recently, my DualShock 4 made for a lovely pad - on Windows all I needed was InputMapper, and on Linux all I needed was ds4drv. But on my new machine, ds4drv doesn't play nice and refuses to function without superuser permissions (which I am very unlikely to just hand over for a damn userspace driver). Furthermore, as I've brought up in an old thread on another subreddit, I was also looking for a simpler gamepad just for older game emulation (something that could handle NDS, SNES, and Saturn games all on one pad). Thus, I'm now looking for a pad or two for the purpose of Linux gaming new, and old. Before I continue, it should be noted that I fear native driverless Linux support for every product I'm about to name.

Firstly, I was pointed to the iBuffalo for a retro pad. The SNES style, I'm told, is fairly comfortable, and the Turbo button and USB-A cable also draw me in. Some reviewers are quite upset, however. The Fighting Commander is a bit odd, but somehow it still has my eye. I wouldn't consider it for modern titles, but it seems like it might be nice for retro games plus emulator hotkeys (e.g. save state, advance frame). Oh, and of course, it's expensive as hell.
As for modern games, the Steam Controller has been named several times by others in this sub, but it's an expensive pad and I'm not sure if I want to throw down that much money given the odd design. I ran across the G3w and while its design is VERY appealing almost exactly what I wanted, even a few user reviews really tarnish the product, and I'd rather not buy junk. The F310 also seems quite nice in its design (Logitech talks up the DPad, so that certainly intrigues me). The XI/DI switch is also extremely appealing. I could've sworn I've seen such a switch on another pad, but I can't find it.

That all put together, which should I get myself? Perhaps there's another pad you think would be better? Should I just use my DS4 anyways until the left stick finally gives up (it's already looking a bit beaten)? Thank you for reading this long post, and hopefully you can help me out.

Solus, RX 580, 1700X - Terrible performance in EUIV

So I build my new pc last week and installed Solus. I tried playing EUIV but I only get about 20fps max. Anyone who's played EUIV knows there is barely any "graphics" to speak of.

I'm not sure what to so. When I go into Solus's hardware driver program DoFlicky it says No drivers were found for your system. So I'm assuming that means everything is up to date?

I'm thinking it has to do with the software side of things. I found this sofware on AMD's website but I do not know how to install the Ubuntu version on Solus. Not even sure if it would really help.

I don't have too much experience with Linux and only started using Solus this week. I would appreciate some help. Thanks.

Lutris Wine Runners Not Updating

How do I update Lutris' Wine runners?

I've been playing League on Staging 3.18 for a long time now. That's the most recent staging version I have. I don't think I was doing anything special to update them a few months ago when I first got Lutris. What am I missing?

I tried to search online for how to do this, but didn't have much luck. I stumbled across a Trello page from two years ago where the developers were working on them automatically updating and this Reddit post that didn't get answered from last year.

PSA: Issues with the latest Civ 6 build on Linux

Just spent an hour on fixing this so hopefully, I can save someone some time/sanity. So the latest update for civ seems to add a launcher (and from my understanding, this has also been done for Civ 5. This launcher requires a symbol to be exported from an old version of fontconfig. This can be fixed by downgrading back to an older version of fontconfig. However, word of warning to those of you that use lightdm (or actually any display manager with a greeter) is that lightdm-slick-greeter, and possibly others, depend on the newer version of fontconfig which. rather enjoyably means, you'll boot in into lightdm dm crashing repeatedly, and possibly no access to any of the other ttys.

TL:DR - don't downgrade fontconfig if you use a greeter. Also, top tip, have at least one old kernel version to boot into in an emergency

Peculiar issues with Xbox One Controller

I've been using a Xbox 360 controller for a few years and ever since I got it it was plug and play and worked in any Steam game with controller support. Mainly Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Rocket League and Super Meat Boy. No problems.

The 360 controller got worn out so I got a Xbox One Controller. I unplugged the 360 controller, plugged in the Xbox One Controller, and booted. First game I try is Rocket League and it works perfectly.

Then I try Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and it's not working. The game says there's an unrecognized gamepad. I go into controls and see "Keyboard" and "Microsoft Xbox---" (the name gets cut off since it's so long). I go into the Xbox one and all the keybindings are blank. I search around and find other people with the issue. Someone posted a template so I can bind the proper buttons, because the game doesn't show the functions so I can bind the proper buttons...

Then I also find a thread saying I should go into Controller Settings in Big Picture Mode and select the Xbox Controller Support. I do that, open Isaac again, and now the gamepad works. I still get the "unrecognized gamepad" though, because for some reason I now have two gamepads listed under controls. One is the old one which has blank keybindings. The other one is a proper one with all the Xbox button icons.

After doing that, the gamepad won't work in Rocket League. I find this solution on steam forums which works perfectly, and I realise that when I went into Controller Settings last time, I checked the box for Xbox controller support, which was unselected when i played Rocket League.

How come my 360 controller worked flawlessly and now the One controller does this? Do I need to reset some settings? Should I just reinitiate steam so I get fresh configs?

Steam Proton: Fallout New Vegas

From what I've read it should be working out of the box, at least it should launch properly before I run into any minor issues, however whenever I try to launch it it says it's not installed. I read that this can happen on windows if a specific registry key isn't created for New Vegas, but I found it in the specific wine installation but the install path was just "\". And considering the game is technically installed outside of the wine prefix's C drive, I dunno if this is correct or not.

Doom 2016

I've just bought it on Steam sale, and I have to say it runs fantastic with Vulkan API (funnily enough even OpenGL is ok).

There's only one little thing that bothers me: I have a 21:9 display, but when I select 3440x1440 fullscreen I have the black bars on the sides. Any idea how to remove this? Again, not sure why it's happening, especially considering that the game shouldn't go through a 3D translation layer such as WineD3D nor DXVK.

Thanks!

Easy VSync with nvidia-xrun

I use nvidia-xrun to enable my optimus dGPU on demand, the only thing that was missing was actually working vsync.

After RTFM I finally found the solution: the nvidia-xrun script can be easily modified to enable vsync.

Just add modeset=1 to the line

 execute "sudo modprobe nvidia_drm"  

so it says

 execute "sudo modprobe nvidia_drm modeset=1"

I suggest making a user copy of the script for this.

That's it, working on-demand power with vsync.

If you are not using nvidia-xrun: that parameter can also be set as a kernel boot option: nvidia-drm.modeset=1

There is a guide on the arch wiki, this works too but you have to load the nvidia modules at boot for that. Arch and derivates make that easy via mkinitcpio, no clue how it works on other distros.

I use Manjaro with kernel 4.19 and nvidia 415.25.

As the title says, if only my gaming laptop hadn't overheated, Every thing is perfect in linux except for one thing, gaming temperatures, I have a Asus fx550ui whit AMD fx9830p and a AMD rx 460 discrete graphics. My problem is that the CPU/igpu skyrockets to 87c the discrete graphics is just 75c which is fine. if only I can figure out how to solve this I switch to linux permanently. I tried many distros, installed tlp thermald no luck, Is there anyone that can help me figure this out.

[wine] Cemu not launching correctly when launched from .desktop shorcut (Ubuntu)

First of all, Hi guys, as the title says, Cemu doesn't launch when launched from a desktop entry, these are the details:

-When launched directly from nautilus or from a terminal: the emu works perfectly, caches are loaded perfectly and emu runs as desired

-When launched from a .desktop shortcut: Cemu launches with incorrect config, game caches do not load correctly, i.e Smash 4 launches with wrong shader cache file (it launches with a very small one), the part on the "file" tab that shows recent games, shows games opened previously from a different version of the emulator, and the controller profiles do not display at all

Does proton work better depending on the distro?

I am currently using manjaro KDE with 4.19 kernal but I am hit and miss with proton. My question is would I get better results if I moved to kubuntu or fedora KDE spin? There are some things I love about manjaro but I just want the best gaming experience possible with Linux. And to be clear my hit and miss proton problems are on platinum and gold titles, I don't even try anything below gold.

Hi! We havent heard back from you and want to make sure we resolved your issue. If youre still experiencing the issue, please let us know by responding to this email, so we can help. If youre no longer having a problem, then no action is needed from you at this time. Thank you!


tl;dr Epic support tries to ignore the question, finally replying "the information you have requested is not readily available to us at the moment". It seems likely to me that Linux client of Epic Store is not on the roadmap at all.

Ping /u/TimSweeneyEpic for a chance to comment.

Throwaway, because I don't want Epic to be able to link my real identity and my Reddit account.

OUTLAST completely freezes my computer

Recently bought OUTLAST and it completely freezes my Ubuntu at the loading screen after the menu. I can still also hear the loading screen music playing.

It doesn't freeze if I use windowed mode but the game does not get past the loading screen.

Has anyone else had success? I was thinking of using Proton with the Windows version but I'm not sure how to get Steam to download the Windows version / Steam Play version while I'm running Linux.

Dark Souls II with Dualshock 4 in Lutris

I'm trying to set up Dark Souls II to play with a Dualshock 4 controller in Lutris, and it mostly works. Except L2 pulls up the gestures menu in addition to being a strong attack, and R2 pulls up the regular menu.

To the best of my understanding, x360ce should let me reconfigure things so Option is mapped to Start and nothing is mapped to Select, which would make all the controls work. But whenever I try using the "Run EXE inside wine prefix" option in Lutris to run x360ce.exe, nothing happens.

Rust is laggy and really slow

I have a pretty capable PC but Rust is really slow for me. Loading a server takes ages (10 mins or so) and I have lots of lag on higher settings, I barely hit 60FPS on pretty low settings and I have a RX 560 4GB.

Should I use the staging branch version instead? How do I fix this?

Any equivalent of RTSS's S-Sync?

I'm running a 7950 on my current machine and familiarising myself with Linux so I can feel at home when I build my next comp next year.

One program that has been a game changer for me has been RTSS and the recent scanline sync update. No frame tearing with minimal input lag which has been incredible for playing competitive shooters.

It's fair to assume that I will probably get a freesync monitor when I build my next pc and won't even need this, but I would like to game more without having to switch to Windows to enjoy the experience. Any ideas?

I just released Aether v3.0 - free/open source space tactics game based on Newtonian physics

Hi everyone,

I just released a major update to the game that I've been working on for quite a while.

Screenshots, video, and download can be found here: https://excarto.itch.io/aether

GitHub page: https://github.com/Excarto/Aether

Aether is a 2D real time tactics game based on pure Newtonian physics. Fleets are constructed from 10 different ship hulls, which can be equipped with various specialized weapons, sensors, fighters, and other systems.

The player has intricate control over various ship systems, power management, repairing, etc. But the most important aspect of the game is managing the momentum and positions of the units to gain a situational advantage. The units do not have any maximum speed, and there is no fixed frame of reference.

It has computer opponents and networked multiplayer.

Any feedback is welcome!

How to setup game in Lutris that's not in steam?

I have a non-steam version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. It's downloaded and ready to play. But how do I install and configure it from within Lutris?

I've used Lutris for other games but I always used the install script on Lutris for games. But the only one for this, is for Steam.

So what do I do?

Has anyone been able to get the Steam Link Android app to work? My controllers don't connect to games.

I'm running the steam link app on an Nvidia Shield, which is hard wired to the my router. My desktop is running Fedora 28 on Xorg, also wired. I've tried using both a PS3 and PS4 controllers. They're linked via blutooth to the shield.

I am able to connect to steam and browse in fullscreen just fine. However, when I launch a game the controller input isn't directed towards the game that I've launched. Also, sound isn't output over the app when streaming, which is weird and maybe related. I've tested this with Hollow Knight, Shovel Knight, and Crawl.

In Steam settings, the controller doesn't show up as a PS3/4 controller, but an Android generic gamepad. Is there something I'm missing? I'd love to get this resolved.

Steam not seeing games on another drive?!

Ubuntu Mate 18.04 64 Bit - On one of my HTPCs, I have a small SSD and a 1 TB HD. On this 1 TB HD is where my games are installed. I have a few games on the small SSD. I went to turn on Steam and now it can not see the games on the 1 TB HD. When I go to add it to the Steam Library under the mnt folder I get an error saying that it needs to be write-able. I can go into the drive and see all of my Steam games inside their correct folder. I ran an HD test and the test came back in good condition.

Did some light googling and it turns this may be an older issue that comes up, now and then?

What are some free games that are not so "heavyweight" that I can play to test hardware on my live Linux system?

I'm trying out Solus 3.9999 with GNOME on a live USB. Have about 4.1 gigs of free space on the USB stick and just want to try out a game or two that is freeware and doesn't take up a ton of space. Either indie or AAA is fine, but be somewhat demanding on 3D graphics hardware. Xonotic looks nice but I don't think it meets the drive space requirements. Several gigs in size will not work of course, but a few hundred megs would be okay.

Xbox One S Wireless controller not working with Steam on Ubuntu 18.04

Last night I bought an Xbox One S Wireless controller (But I'm using it wired) to use with Steam. The controller isn't working with Steam at all, but everything else recognizes it and uses it fine, JSTest, Antimicro, Retroarch, etc. Here's what I've tried:
Updating to the lasted xpad driver

Using the SteamOS xpad driver

Trying xboxdrv which didn't recognize it

Restarting Steam
Restarting my PC

Changing to non-beta Steam

Reinstalling Steam

Using different ports

Fiddling with ever controller setting that didn't require a controller to be plugged in

NTFS compression alternative

I have some Playstation 1 and 2 ISOs and a lot of them can be compressed to save filezize. Is there a way to keep them compressed and still accessible to the emulators?

Or should I just format my media HDD to NTFS and use NTFS compression. This is what I was doing before and it worked great. Its ext4 now. Moving stuff back and forth to reformat it would be a pain though.

Kingdom Come Deliverance on Steam Play - prerequisites

I've seen a few recent threads around the internet talking about getting this game to work with Steam Play. I have Mint 19.

So far for me, it just does nothing when I launch the game - no error message.

My questions are around requirements:

  • I apparently need "LLVM". Is this link the most relevant place for instructions as pertains to my goal here? http://releases.llvm.org/7.0.1/docs/GettingStarted.html. If so, what am I supposed to do at the "make" stage. There are a few different "generator" options to choose from and this wasn't written with Steam Play in mind. Does it matter?
  • What Nvidia (I have 980ti) drivers do I need? I have 415.25 installed using that ppa source in terminal, not from Nvidia website.
  • I have copied all the files from Win64Shared to Win64 in game dir. Several people suggested this in threads I found.
  • Is there anything else I might be missing that makes this game not even launch?

Thanks

How does GameHub work?
  • I installed GameHub, added my GOG account, the app freezes trying to load thumbnails for my 95 games and crashes.
  • I open the app again, it takes me back to the 'add account' screen (though GOG is still listed as being added), I hit skip again it starts downloading all the thumbnails all over again and it crashes
  • After several attempts (every one requiring the app to sync my library from scratch, no matter how long I gave it), I managed to start installing a game. Once the game finishes downloading it asks me to select an executable and takes me to my root directory. I have no idea what it wants from me. I hit cancel and my installation progress is reset.
  • I start another download and I'm back at the 'select executable' screen again. What am I supposed to do here?

NVIDIA 1060 3GB to NVIDIA 2080 - No change in FPS

Hello!

I love linux. I know there will be better optimization in Windows, and I was willing to sacrifice some FPS. I am running a 1440p 144hz monitor and recently an NVIDIA 2080 went on sale for $620. I bought it and hoped I could make a greater switch to Linux as Overwatch is currently my most-played game, but the FPS suffer. After my upgrade to the 2080, I have found no change in FPS. I am running a Ryzen 1600, which I know is a little underpowered, but I didn't expect 0 change in FPS.

Is there something I can do, or is my CPU simply blocking me from better performance?

Killing floor 2 random crashes, any help or pointers?

Hi, killing floor 2 runs absolutely flawlessly on linux via proton. Except one massive problem. It crashes completely randomly. I have disabled esync, dx10, changed settings of all sorts and it still crashes with the exact same thing that is shoved into the clipboard.

My specs are

ryzen 1600, rx480, kernel 4.19, ubuntu 18.04, wine staging 4.0rc2, happens on all .16 versions of proton; have not tried the older .7 series.

Fatal error!

F3DAudioCalculate() Address = 0x8be790f7 (filename not found) 
Address = 0x5aaafb54 (filename not found)

Just before this happens the game stops rendering new frames, audio continues for a second or so and the game hard crashes.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

How do you install something in drive:c?

Just finished Fallout: New Vegas and am trying to install Fallout 3 using Wineskin Winery. I create a new wrapper, configure it all I wanted, then opened it and clicked install software. From there in finder I typed up the Fallout 3 installer (.exe) and when I click on it it gives me a small access denied popup then says that I need to install it in drive:c. But... how exactly do you do this again? For the life of me I cant remember how I installed FNV. Help.

Gamming on Linux

I have had it outright. I'm sick of windows not working well for me. So I'm switching to Linux, the distro I'm choosing is Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS and I want to know if some games will work on Linux.

GTA 5 and GTA Online Fortnite (both editions) World of Warcraft Overwatch and basically my whole collection of steam, battle.net, epic games, Uplay, and origin games.

I already know about Wine, Lutris, and Linux itsself and how to use the terminal but I mainly want to switch to get rid of windows 10.

Any comments are appreciated. Thanks

Metro 2033 Redux destroys my ram and cpu when loading

Hey guys, i just bought a few games while the steam sale was going on, and i purchased the Metro Redux Bundle, which includes Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux.

My main problem is with the 'Metro 2033 Redux' native linux port.

When im loading up a save or moving to a new area the game ramps up to use all of my 8 gigs of ram and 100% cpu, and gets my entire pc nearly frozen for about 5 minutes until it finishes loading.

I've tested on the wine version and it works great, with the exception of buggy sound ( which i might try using FAudio to fix) and less fps ( though i suspect it might just be the dxvk shader cache needing to build).

But i really would prefer to play it natively as i really hate using steam on wine.

My system is

Rx 480

i5-6600k@4ghz

8G of ram

running arch linux. i3wm

What ive tried:

Running in a different DE

using steam runtime instead of native

Bad performance with DS3 and proton

I expected Dark Souls 3 to run fine, as it's a whitelisted game, but I get ~40 fps with much stuttering when alone, an unplayable CPU-heater otherwise. Before returning the game I tought I'd ask for some magic tweak here :)

I tried running it with low settings, 1920x1080 (I have a 2560x1440 monitor, but that resolution lowers the framerate to ~10fps when alone).

CPU: Intel i7 4770
GPU: AMD R9 380 2GB
RAM: 8GB DDR3

btw i use arch

Run a WINE'd game at 144 hz?

When I play a game under WINE like WoW Classic (which has a setting in video for what the hz it should run at, basically a frame cap) it doesn't give the right information. On Windows, it would give me options up to 144, although only 120 worked. However, under WINE on Ubuntu 18.10, it only offers up to 65 hz. How can I force a refresh rate through WINE, or at least tell the game what refresh rate I support?

Linux Game Support

I would like to finally ring the death bell for Windows in my setups. I only have 1 Windows machine out of 5 and I only using it for gaming (obviously). I can't fully drop Windows because of the games that I do play and I haven't seen them being played on Linux yet.

- Any/ALL of the Tom Clancy Rainbox Six titles and Splinter Cell titles.

- Hitman Absolution

- Assassins Creed Black Flag & Origins

- Call of Duty multiplayer (yeah i'm old school)

- Dead by Daylight (by far the most important in my catalog)

I believe the lack of support in these type of games is due to the lack of DirectX 11 support in Linux.... but when?

R.U.S.E Crashes on start up ACCESS VIOLATION (Reading 0x00000000)

Hi all,

I am completely new to gaming on Linux as I just changed over from Windows after many years. I have both Steam-OS for Linux and Steam through WINE installed. Everytime I try to launch R.U.S.E the game it won't launch and I get errors in both WINE and Linux Steam. The WINE error is:

ACCESS VIOLATION (Reading 0x00000000)

(0)

And then gives a dump file.

Can anyone shed some light on this and possibly help me get this game working?

Thanks,

Help with creative destruction

Hello, does anyone has tried to run Creative Destruction on linux ?

I tried using steam but I was stcuck in the loading screen, saying (in chinese) that some files weren't right. I tried to reinstall it, using different version of proton. But none of them worked with the exact same error.

I tried using play on linux but it gave the same error that it cannot execute an .exe (Sorry I'm not at home right now I forgot the exact name, but I looked up on internet and It seems to be an internet explorer features something like that. Even on windows this error seems to happen, not on creative destruction) When I tried to launch Creative destruction it said that it was missing files.

I'm on manjaro with xfce (my system is up to date).

Sorry for the lack of precision, and sorry for any misspealling error I'm french.

World of Warcraft 8.1+ ElvUI: Major lag in raids

Not sure whether this is related to Wine, but since the 8.1 patch I am getting major lag during raid fights with ElvUI enabled. I have opened a bug ticket on the ElvUI bug tracker, and while it doesn't seem to be a widespread problem, there are some people that share my issues. Maybe it's wine related?

My FPS absolutely tanks whenever we enter combat in an Uldir raid. This was not the case with 8.0. I have tried completely reinstalling WoW in a fresh wineprefix, and only installing ElvUI with the default healer profile, but the issue remains. I have really curious whether:

1) Is there anyone playing 8.1 with Elvui and _not_ experiencing these issues during Uldir boss fights? If not, what profile are you using? (rDPS, mDPS, tank, healer)

2) Is there anyone playing 8.1 that notices the exact same issues?

OS: Antergos

Kernel: 4.19.12

DXVK: 0.94

Mesa: 18.3.1

GPU: Vega 64

Jurassic: World Evolution not working

Hi all,

Has anyone gotten this game to work on Wine? I'm getting a crash window from the game itself upon startup when I launch it from Steam (Proton).

From what I gather this game uses Denuvo DRM which could be the issue?

Anyways I'd really like to get this to work since my son is totally into dinosaurs at the moment :-)

How can I prevent my system from going to sleep whilst playing games?

So I finally got "wine" up and running using Lutris. The only game I've tried thus far is Mafia 2, which I play using a controller.

However the annoying thing is that I've set my monitor to shut off after 10 minutes of inactivity and for whatever reason, using the controller isn't being registered as activity. I'm not sure if this problem would exist were I playing with a k/m

Does anyone know what I can do?

I'm running Kubuntu 18.04

Opinion: r/linux_gaming seem very entitled ...

I've subbed here for a while and noticed that a lot of threads that I walk into are like: "if they don't support Linux well then fuck them too, you're not getting no money no you don't!". With a global desktop install base of 1% or less, why do you think you deserve any attention? This is the attitude you give when Linux is 50% of the PC desktop market, not 1%. It's a very entitleist attitude to have imo.

The majority of the PC market is Windows, it's painfully obvious that Linux (and Mac) is seriously not worth going through the initial pain of using a cross platform engine and all the testing that needs to be done, when there's other platforms out there that have a much larger pool of users (mobile & consoles) to target where said development & testing would be worth the returns. That 1% install base doesn't always mean 100% of them would buy their game - it's a very, very small platform with very small return on investment. By the time the devs have implemented all of those platforms, if you don't own at least one of them and were holding out for a Linux port well then you're just too small a group to care about.

If you don't want Linux to be dead last in the priority list of platforms to support, you need a large user base that can rival Windows - at least 5 to 10% to begin with - before barking up the tree (I'd say 20% at least). Instead of pestering developers to support a platform nobody uses, pester the Windows users to join the Linux world instead. The developers will come for the users, not the other way around.

Proton, Wine and DXVK are just a stepping stone to getting true developer attention, and we should be using the opportunity to up the Linux install base as soon as this is mature & stable enough.

Can I force a game (e.g. Soul Reaver) to run windowed mode in Proton?

I recently bought Soul Reaver (along with three other Legacy of Kain games) on Steam, and I discovered that the game has no built-in support for windowed mode. I tried running winecfg in the Proton WINEPREFIX for the game in order to set it to run in a virtual desktop window, but the pre-launch configuration window for Soul Reaver didn't render properly that way. I've read that a program called DXWnd is recommended to force the game to run windowed on Windows, but I can't find anything on how to do it in Linux.

Is there a way to force a Wine/Proton game to run in a window without using the virtual desktop winecfg option?

Everspace eats all the memory on Linux (and wants some moar)

Hi fellow Redditux,

I come here for help, in hope that someone there also knew this situation and find a way out.

I have Everspace running on my Xubuntu (please no debate about the distribution I picked <3) thanks to SteamOS you know what I mean.

I have 8Gb of RAM (DDR4), fully operational. It's basically twice what's required. I can launch the game (if Firefox is not running; it's not even a joke, I need 6 free Gb immediately free, however it will not be possible to play). I can then play with high quality without being bothered... for like 6 "maps".

Each map lets me see my free RAM getting lower and lower. When I launch the game, I can still rely on 1.5Gb of free memory (lol), but step by step, it gets full. Then comes the time when 99% of the memory is busy, and nothing can move. It actually doesn't take more than 20-30 minutes, so you'd said it's enough gaming time a day, idk?

I can't find anything online that helps. Solutions are about video quality, and I've tried 'em. Even if I put it as low as possible, the games keeps being too greedy, even at launch!

Has anyone there encountered this issue? And if no one did, have you any clue about where to investigate?

Anyway, thanks for reading; thanks for being positive about gaming on Linux; have a merry Christmas and a happy (free) new year!

PC build and Linux drivers recommendations before buying

In the following weeks I'm going to build a PC from scratch. Retiring my Notebook, going back to the Desktop. CPU, GPU, case, power source... you know the drill. Main purpose will be gaming but for any other purpose I will be using Linux (probably Mint or some other Debian based distro since is the one I use at work and I'm already familiar with). I will also try to game in Linux native as much as possible (aware of It's limitation).

So I'm asking for your advice: any brand I should avoid because of crappy driver support in Linux? Any recommendations? nVidea or ATi? Intel or AMD? What about chipsets?

Thanks in advance.

Deslan
Guide: Migrating to Linux in 2019 (Alternate version)

The original sticky can be found here. I thought it was overly complicated for a beginner to read, so I re-wrote it.

0. Before you get going

Why would you want to use Linux? In many cases it is faster, and allows you to get more out of your hardware (in some cases it is slower, usually in the case when the hardware drivers are not good; check if your hardware supports Linux before you switch). It is also free as in free beer; you don't have to pay for it, but giving some tips to the staff that is working on giving you a good experience is always a good idea. There are also some political or ideological reasons for choosing Linux; since it is open source code you know that there is no spy ware built in that will monitor you or how you use your computer (given of course that you don't use Google and Facebook and other services that use your open source platform to collect data anyway). The debate on why to choose Linux can go on for days, but for most people I guess that the major reason is that it's faster and you don't have to pay anything for it and you can still keep up with the latest versions of everything.

1. Getting started

You know how you can buy a Skoda Octavia, but the engine in it is the same as in the Audi A4 and that type of engine is also in the Volkswagen Beetle? If you want a cheap car you buy the Skoda, if you want high tech you buy the Audi, and if you want original styling you buy the Beetle, but they all run the same engine with the same fuel. Linux is kind of like the engine here; Linux is used in many different contexts and just like you can get a car styled to your needs you can get a distribution of Linux styled to your needs.

Each distribution has instructions on their home page how to get your system up and running using their packaging of Linux. Reading through that information before you get started will make things a lot easier for you.

There are three major style kits that comes with Linux; first is KDE which looks and behaves a lot like Windows, then there is Gnome which looks and behaves a lot like MacOS, and then there are some minor alternatives that we can group into a third option (common factor is basically they require less system resources).

If you are starting out with a Mac and want to switch to Linux, you will want to use Elementary OS.

If you are staring out on a PC with Windows and want to switch to Linux, you may also want to check out Elementary OS, because it is a good choice for beginners, but if you want a desktop more similar to Windows then Kubuntu with KDE or Linux Mint with Cinnamon are good options.

If you are starting out with old hardware or low cost budget laptop then things might be a bit slow for you. In this case, you should install Lubuntu which is using less system resources than other options.

2. Getting into it

All of these distributions of Linux have a software repository that you can access in one way or the other. Shouldn't be difficult to find, especially since you can install the same software in several different ways. Usually it is called something like Software Center. You may also have a more advanced tool called Synaptic, which does the same thing as the software center but with more options and technical stuff. Of course, you can also start a terminal (in Windows known as Command Line or Prompt or something such).

The Software Center is like your App Store on your phone; you can search for stuff and install it, sometimes you may need to pay for it and other times it is a free download.

In your Software Center (or equivalent) you will be able to find Steam, which you can log into and install all the games that support Linux. The Software Center also have a lot of simple free games you can just download and play. If the game you want to play supports Linux and is available on Steam, then you are done here.

If you have a Windows game that you want to play, there will be some difficulties, but many times it is possible if you are willing to do some work. Google is your friend in this case. For example, if I Google for "World of Warcraft on linux" I get this page: https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-play-world-of-warcraft-on-linux-with-wine

3. Getting ahead of yourself

Go to https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=popularity and look through the 305 different distributions they have listed according to popularity. Just like there are lots of different car models, there are lots of different distributions. It may take some time for you to find your favourite if you have peculiar tastes.

If you are actually running a company and just want to play a game on your lunch break, you will probably want to look at something like Fedora, CentOS, OpenSuSE, Debian, or Ubuntu.

If you are a programmer or suffer from OSD and want to tune every little number or knob in your computer, then go for Gentoo / Funtoo / Sabayon / Calculate Linux / or some other of those Gentoo derivatives. You will spend a lot of time compiling everything from scratch. If you just want to DIY then perhaps LFS (Linux From Scratch) is your thing.

If you are into that hacker and penetration testing and such thing, there are the Arch distributions, such as BlackArch. Also Kali Linux, which I believe was made famous in some hacker TV show. Really getting ahead of yourself if you are looking at this. Plenty of Arch users in gaming though, and they make some really good HowTo's on getting games running if you are using some obscure piece of hardware that doesn't work with general drivers.

You can spend years looking at different distributions and trying them out. Best bet is probably to ignore this chapter and go back to one of those first general ones. Even if Formula 1 cars were for free you wouldn't see people driving them around streets everywhere, because they're just really bad if you want to take your family somewhere or if you want to do some grocery shopping. Chances are, if you just sit down in a Formula 1 car you will kill yourself from lack of understanding. In the case of Linux, worst case you will end up thinking Linux sucks and go back to using Windows/MacOS, but it doesn't have to be that way. Just stick with ElementaryOS or something such until you are settled in.

4. Troubleshooting

Don't post in this thread if something doesn't work. I am not a support hotline.

The distribution you picked has a lot of support available. Frequently Asked Questions, Wikis, Forums, IRC chat rooms, etc. Thousands of people take it as a hobby to help you out, so it shouldn't be difficult to get sorted. Just go to the home page of your distribution and search your way forward from there.

Choosing a budget AMD graphic card

Hello everyone,

I'm looking to buy a budget AMD graphic card for my new PC build. Most of my usage will be programming but I'll play some games too.

The games I mostly play are not too demanding :

  • Dota 2
  • LoL
  • Artifact
  • CS:GO

I struggle to choose between RX 560, 570 and 580.

I'm also wondering if it could be usefull to buy a used card, I guess miners are selling their hardware now with bitcoin falling a lot in value. Does a card used for mining still work well enough to game on it ?

Hello all, Linux gaming is on a great spot rigth now, but I saw few games that don't work just for easyanticheat (Like squad, a game a bougth when I used windwos) and searching around seems like EAC used to work on some games with wine but now it isn't.

Hearts of Iron IV: Manually Install a Mod

I'm looking to install a mod manually in HOI4 as the github version is kept more up to date than the Steam Workshop release.

Unfortunatley the mod only gives the Windows directory path which is .../My Documents/Paradox Interactive/Hearts of Iron IV/mod.

Does anyone know how (if it's possible) to install a mod manually on Linux? HOI4 doesn't seem to make any files in home.

For reference the mod is End of a New Beginning:

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

Games Crashing

Hi, so my games crash (ex: TF2 and Payday, I'm sure others would crash too, but I mostly play these), these crashes only happen in one boot... Like, if I reboot the system it nevers happens again, but if it crashes and I start the game again on the same session it tends to crash, from 1 to 3 times a day. This happened 2 times (2 boots full of crashes, not crashes in total), no crash logs are created for the games, atleast they didn't create logs for these crashes. May be not fit in this subreddit, if this is the case pls send me a PM and I will remove this section.

I don't have crashlogs, TF2 doesn't even have them. Payday doesn't create them, which it should create.

I can't reproduce the problem, already updated my distro video drivers and kernel multiple times.

Distro: Arch.

Question about file system compatibility with Proton

I have been reading that Proton does not like NTFS at all and gives terrible performance and that I should install in Linux. I assume this means to install on an EXT4, but has anyone tested on other file system formats? If so, what works and what doesn't?

Anybody playing The Evil Within 2?

Just picked it up on steam because it's been on my steam wishlist for awhile and I really liked the first on my PS4. Suprisingly I can't find anything about it in terms of WINE/Proton, it dosn't even have a page on WineHQ, which I think is suprising as it's a AAA game.

After applying a fix to skip the intro video (the video that show the company that made it when you launch the game, not an intro video that plays when you start a new game) it seems to work almost flawlessly on Proton, performance isn't great but perfectly playable and I don't think thats a WINE issue.

However during chapter 3 it seems to crash very frequently for me, probably every 30 mins or so. Before that chapter I played it for 2 hours straight without any issues. Does anybody know how to fix the crashes?

No Keyboard Input When Playing Anomaly Mod using Lutris

Hello. I managed to boot into Anomaly Mod using Lutris (using wine-esync 3.14).

But I can't use my keyboard at all, there's totally no input.

Is there a specific library or component that I need to enable in Lutris/Wine in order to enable keyboard support?

--- --- ---

I have disabled all D3D10 and D3D11 libraries, otherwise I can't get it to run.

Currently running under DirectX 9.0 Enhanced mode.

Is linux port of Anomaly 2 actually working?

I just tried to run Anomaly 2 (bought on GOG) on Fedora 29 install and to my suprise its crashing just after the cinematics. I tried the following fix: https://www.gog.com/forum/anomaly_series/anomaly_warzone_earch_stuck_at_loading which worked on Fedora 28,27 and previous.

On Fedora 29 crash says:

X Error of failed request: GLXBadContextTag
Major opcode of failed request: 150 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
Serial number of failed request: 2953
Current serial number in output stream: 2953

Im running on latest nvidia driver (415.25). Did anyone else try to run this on Fedora or recent nvidia drivers perhaps?

Christmas Is Saved By Super Tux Kart

Mario Kart Wii at Christmas is a tradition for our (large) family. This year, we went travelling a little. When we arrived at the place to stay, we realised we'd forgotten to bring a SCART to VGA cable - shock horror!

Thankfully, I had my laptop and a copy of Super Tux Kart. The game has Wiimote support too, which means that we could play it just like we always used to.

And damn... STK holds up. It's no Mario Kart, but it's still a heap of fun. The tracks are beautiful, the powerups are... odd... and the controls feel great to use.

I could use Arch if someone known that its working there but I was getting sound problems on other game (alsa/pulseaudio stuff) so I go with Ubuntu for easiness.

Help launching steam with nvidia-xrun

I'm on a Dell XPS 15 9570 using nvidia-xrun-pm.

Steam works fine, but when I move to another tty and run "nvidia-xrun i3", steam just refuses to run. I get:

libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

I've done a little reading and other people with this problem say that installing "lib32-nvidia-utils" fixed this, but I've done that with no luck. Just spits out the same errors. It's obviously something with nvidia cause without nvidia-xrun, the Intel card opens steam perfectly.

Any ideas?

DXVK with Ryzen APUs (2200G, 2400G)

I've decided to upgrade my cheap Pentium G rig to a Ryzen, and with it I have been using Windows 7. That OS is getting long in the tooth and is not even supported with Ryzen APUs and I didn't want to consider Win10 so I wanted to start clean and use a formatted hard drive just for Linux and games in it.

What I was wondering though is how well the performance is with DXVK and the embedded Vega iGPUs, in particular the high profile games. Is there any performance difference with running games on modern engines on Win10 vs. Linux? Especially on the Vega 8 and 11? I have Manjaro Linux as I hear that the Arch-based Linuxes are among the best supporters of the Ryzen APUs right now, and plan to use Lutris for the gaming platform on most of my games.

DXVK on Clevo P151EM (GTX 660M)

Hi everyone,

not sure if that's even possible but can I run DXVK on my notebook somehow? AFAIK, display outputs go through the iGPU so I can't just disable the integrated graphics and only use the NVIDIA GPU. There's no option for this in the BIOS either.

I'm currently using Arch Linux with Bumblebee which doesn't support DXVK at all AFAIK.

However, it seems like I need to use Bumblebee to use my NVIDIA GPU.

Does anyone have a similar setup with DXVK running and can point me to the right direction? Or is it simply not possible?

Anyone know of a way to get .Net 3.0 to work in a 32bit wine prefix?

So, I have this game that's made for a 64bit architecture, but it needs .Net 3.0 to run small external settings menus. For the most part, I think .Net is only being used for the games settings application. If I run the games executable on it's own, it runs fine, I just can't adjust any of the games settings. Normally, this wouldn't be to big of an issue, but I need to change the games default language settings.

Now, I know that .Net isn't really well supported under 64bit WINE prefixes at the moment. But since the game seems to only use .Net to a limited extent, do you think it would be possible to get it to work?

Also, as a side note, the game was made in Unity3D and seems to use .XML files for managing settings. I found the file that seems to reference to the settings I need changed, but when I edit the .XML file nothing seems to be affected in game. Any ideas as to why this doesn't work?

---Additional info:

Game: It's an obscure title from Japan that doesn't seem to have any documentation on WineHQ.

Distro: Fedora 29 64bit

WINE Versions tested: Wine-staging 4.0-rc3, Proton 3.7, 3.16 and 3.16 beta (I know proton is steams implementation of WINE, but I don't know much about it. I just tested them since I had them installed)

Anyway, hope someone can help me out!

Ys VI - The Ark of Napishtim - Cutscenes not working/displaying

Hey there

The game runs smoothly but the cutscenes are not showing(it skips them). I'm assuming it's a .ddl missing but I don't know which. I tried some but it actually made the game launch only with a black screen so had to remove the prefixes and make a new one.

wine version is wine-3.0.4

Any help is appreciated

jstest-gtk (Gamepad settings) using 100% of CPU?

I have an off brand xbox360 type controller I got for Amazon back when I used Windows. It never worked very well in Windows BTW (its a p.o.s.)

this gamepad

I was hoping I'd get it to work in my Ubuntu MATE 18.04 computer to play PS2 games with PCSX2 but there seems to be no native support for the controller as far as I can tell.

I installed jstest-gtk through the main repos because configuring the controller through the terminal seems really complicated for me.

The only way I can get PCSX2 to find the pad in the controller config is to run jstest-gtk in the terminal and select the pad, check that it is working with calibration button, and minimize/keep jstest-gtk running while I play PCSX2 games.

My problem is that my CPU starts to max out and htop shows that it jstest is the culprit. As soon as I close it CPU usage drops down to normal.

Does anyone have the controller?

Does anyone have a solution or workaround for this?

Is there any better game-pad configuration tools out there?

And finally, is there any better controller anyone can recommend that Ubuntu will natively recognize or support?

Merry X-Mas yall..

Any way to map key combination involving super key for Steam overlay?

Is there any way I can map the Steam overlay to a combination with Super key? For example Super + Z. Is there a file somewhere I can edit manually to do this?

Please help with debugging in wine-3.0.3 (Ubuntu 3.0.3-2)

Ubuntu 18.10

When running CK2.exe in wine i get the same error over and over and i have no clue what to do. I'm at my wits end and the frustration is killing me.

wine CK2game.exe 
wine: Unhandled page fault on execute access to 0xffd6e1df at address 0xffd6e1df (thread 0009), starting debugger...
0009:err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0xffd6e1df

I installed .net and D9 through wine tricks i even made a new wine32 prefix and that didn't help.

I have 2 ways to install ck2 a codex installer folder and a folder with an .exe and bin info in it. The codex works and installs but wont run and gives me the error the .exe that came with bin info sometimes works but then wont run or the installer just freezes.

Failed to activate core devices

I recently had to re-install my os which had a painting program I downloaded that came ported through wineskins. when I was previously running high sierra it worked just fine but after re-installing high sierra and downloading the same program again, i get the Failed to Activate Core devices error. The version of wine used is 2.6.0 and I've also tried to run the program using xquartz, but all that does is open xquartz itself. Unchecking auto detect GPU is screen options doesn't solve the issue either.

Does anyone have any advice they can offer? :(

osu!lazer installer for Linux

Hey, i build a osu!lazer installer since quite a while and since my last work, it supports automatic dependency install scripts. Also languages packs are available.

Currently my scripts cover Ubuntu 18.04 and 16.04. English, German, Italian and Polish packs are included.

The process is quick and easy, it clones and compiles automatically.

Video: https://youtu.be/doMdNU4I-u4

Licensed as GPL3, You are welcome to fork it and send back pull requests, especially language packs or dependency install scripts are very welcome, but everything is greatly appreciated.

Trying to get Fallout 4 working - Help?

So, I mostly followed this video, I'm using wine 3.20 and latest dxvk (literally re-downloaded it 10 mins ago). I use PlayOnLinux as a wine prefix manager. I did try using Lutris, but it never even got to the bit where it downloads that game.

Command line option of -no-dwrite for steam text.

God rays refuse to turn off in any of the menus, but I have them (and volumetric lighting) set to off in all the setting files, and the startup console command to turn them off again.

I hit "PLAY" and it crashes.

What have I not done/what info is needed to figure out what I've not done?

WWE 2K19, Game runs all the way to a match but player models aren't visible

Debian 9, running nVidia 410 drivers from sid. DXVK .94 (experimented with older versions too), and TKG-3.21-Protonified.

The game appears to run really well, but player models are invisible. Everything else seems to work. Player models in-game and in the character creator are the only issue.

Can anyone recommend a fix?

[Noob query] Creating 64bit virtual drives on PlayOnMac

Hello r/wine_gaming

I've never used wine and steam together before, so I was surprised when I was able to get steam to work perfectly well with PlayOnMac. However, the games I'm trying to run are 64bit, and don't have compatibility with the PlayOnMac virtual drive, which is automatically 32bit. I'm not really sure how to create a program that's 62bit instead, as I'm at the latest Wine and PlayOnMac versions.

[Noob query] Running 64bit steam games in PlayOnMac

This is really my first time using Wine together with steam, and when launching 64bit games via steam, I get a popup that says my version of windows is not 64bit. I've tried changing the wine version to the latest build, and I have also changed the windows version under "wine configuration", but haven't made progress. Is there any way to access a 64bit version of wine in PlayOnMac? i feel like I'm missing something obvious

[Troubleshooting]: Can not launch Civ 6 on Arch Linux

Hi everyone, a recent update seems to have caused this issue. When running steam-runtime / steam-native from console, this is what I see:

./gameGuide/Civ6: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol: FT_Done_MM_Var arch

The suggested workaround I have seen so far is to launch the game using the following options

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

This does seem to launch something (i.e. steam says the game is running), but I dont see the game window. I think I have hit the limit of my google skills, so I was wondering if anyone has seen similar issues and if so, if they were able to solve them.

EDIT: I see the same behavior using both steam-runtime and steam-native packages.

Thanks!

I have a Broadwell dual-core, hyper-threaded CPU with Intel HD graphics and a discrete R5 330m card which I use to play. I can play on low without stutter, but I played on medium details well on Windows 10. Does anyone else who play WT struggle on GCN 1.0 cards?

OS: Arch Linux, latest Mesa and kernel (4.19.12 atm in Arch), amdgpu and GNOME on Wayland.

World of Warcaft Wotlk 3.3.5 on Fedora 27 camera issue

I am having an issue with the camera in World of Warcraft. The issue appears in every single version of WoW (tried it on Vanilla, WOTLK and BFA). The problem is that when I try to move the camera (regardless whether with the left or right mouse button) the camera starts spinning uncontrollably making the game unplayable.

Firstly, I was running WoW only with wine (`wine WoW.exe`). Today I followed [a tutorial](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3P-zLYirSOU&t=554s) and I am having the exact same problem. The tutorial basically sets PlayOnLinux, with wine 1.6.2 and d3x9.

Has anyone also experienced this and knows how to fix it or how to install World of Warcraft on Linux to run normally?

Separating gaming from other stuff you do on your machine

One of the reasons I am currently doing the switch to Linux is that I want to use have more control over my system and run more libre software. I want more security and no non-free software looking through all my data or doing other stuff in the background. On the other hand, I also want to play some games.

Do you separate gaming from other stuff you do? Into a separate user? A separate linux install? A virtual machine? A separate physical machine? A docker container? Or do you just use your same environment for everything?

Do games (e.g. steam games) typically install on the system or user level? Do they bring always-on background processes (e.g. on my current Mac the most annoying thing are updaters that run in the background and pop up from time to time)?

Thanks!

Help on Gaming on a basic laptop for travel with linux

I'm quite a newbie on Linux, I've used it for a long time but never dug under the hood. So now I have this laptop that I switched to Linux (Fedora 29 Workstation - I know most of people doesn't like fedora, but I feel comfortable with since I never dug into linux as I said), the laptop in question is an HP with those specs: - Intel i7 - 5500U (2 cores 4 thread at 2.6ghz if I'm right) - 8gbs ddr4 ram - Ati Radeon R5 M330 2gbs gpu

When it had windows on it, it was running games in an acceptable way, not good, not decent, acceptable.

Now with linux gaming is almost impossible. But as far as I can guess it's not linux fault, I didn't installed any driver for the video card I just trusted that the distro would have done it for me.

Now that I'm travelling quite a lot for work purposes I'd like to play my usual games while I fly. Games like life is strange (on windows with minimum settings was acceptable), the long dark and also stuff like Minecraft (yes I'm a 25y/o grown ass man with a decent job and I like to relax building stuff on minecraft).

All of this was possible on windows but I can't manage to do that on Fedora.

Anyone can help me with this? Would be much appreciated

Can't fix tearing + stuttering - Nvidia 980ti / Proprietary / KDE / Kubuntu

I can't seem to fix tearing on my computer. I've tried a range of solutions, from forcing full composition to this: http://mondotech.blogspot.com/2015/01/fix-screen-tearing-issues-with-mint-17.html?m=1 to this: https://www.maketecheasier.com/get-rid-screen-tearing-linux/ to playing left 4 dead 2. Out of all of these, the only option that works is to just play left 4 dead 2, since that is the ONLY thing I can run on my system that doesn't screen tear or stutter for some reason. Firefox, chromium, tf2, csgo, https://www.testufo.com/ all exhibit horrible stuttering and/or screen tearing.

I can't get Wayland working because Nvidia decided to be a big of dicks (what a surprise!) and not support GBM, so until EGLStreams patches are ready for Kwin, I'm stuck on X11. If there's a solution for this, and it would grant me tear-free video through Wayland, I'm up for that too.

Please help. I have been using linux for 4 years now and, if I where to fix screen tearing & stuttering, it would be the first time in those 4 years that I'd ever experience tear-free, stutter-free Linux. Obligatory "wayland plz sooner". Thanks.

I can use wine to open applications.

So I had to re install Linux mint a week or so ago, and I didnt get around to installing wine till today. I had an wine32 missing error but I was able to fix it and install. I can open winecfg, I can do wine version and the .wine folder is there everything seems fine but I couldnt use wine to open an application. So I tried the iexplorer that is in wine and that doesnt open either.

I am on Linux mint, wine stable, and it is set to win 7. I think I use to have the development version, but I dont know if I have to uninstall and reinstall wine to switch it.

Your year with Linux Gaming - 2018

Been on Linux for a long time. I wanted to start a post, maybe even make it an annual thing about what you liked/disliked/did/didn't do regarding Linux gaming.

  • 2018
  • GOG - Picked up 27 games my favorite being Ruiner and The Fall Part 2: Unbound.
  • itch.io - Picked up 8 games my favorite being Butcher and Pawarumi.
  • Steam - Pick up 16 games my favorite being Tekken 7 (Steamplay), Ultra Street Fighter IV (Steamplay) and Shadow of Mordor.

Started this year with my Steam account already 6 months of non-use and I did not start using it again til Steamplay was on my horizon. Glad that I did. So many fighting games that I wanted to try out were working and it was/still is a blast to get these. Also coordinatings games with the family is easier and while Doomseeker and Xonotic was cool for coordinating games without Steam it was not as smooth.

GOG is OK but I am starting to feel the urge to jump on the bandwagon for to push for them to make a client for us. For the most part I only pick up SP games that I really want to play but I am more of a local MP player with some online thrown in for the mix up from time to time so this has been that strong of an urge.

itch.io is great and getting better their new client grew on me.

Lutris did not get used that much this year but I continue to support and advocate for others into Wine games to use it and support it.

It's been an awesome year and I hope all the devs and people behind that scene supporting and promoting Linux are getting all their wishes fulfilled as the new year comes.

Now to get to this backlog!

Skyrim audio issues using Steam Play

I am new to gaming in Linux, but as I now spend most of my time here (Ubuntu 18.04) I eventually had to give it a try to avoid the hassle of switching between OSes.

So I installed Steam, enabled Steam Play and downloaded Skyrim. It runs, cool.

However, as seems to be the issue with a number of other users, both music and character voices do not work for some reason. A popular solution is found in https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/99i4se/, but it seems like a few of us still can't quite get it to work.

If someone knows how to fix this, it'd be greatly appreciated by me and the other unlucky folks.

2 cursors because can’t make wrapper go fullscreen (MAC OSX)

I recently download Fallout: New Vegas for my mac using wine and when I run the wrapper it automatically opens up a window with the game but I cant go fullscreen at all. The game has a cursor of its own along with the mac cursor so when I try to use things in game it exits the game because the mac cursor clicks off of the window. There is no fullscreen option for the game and no fullscreen option in the toolbar. Is there a way for me to make the game go fullscreen so I can have just one cursor and play the game?

Mass Effect Andromeda: Miserable performance on GTX1050Ti!

I am running Arch with wine-4.0-rc3 (Staging), DXVK 0.94, and nvidia 415.25-4 on a GTX 1050Ti.

Even on the lowest settings the game is continuously stuttering and the FPS drops to 5-15. Occasionally it goes up, but as soon as you start moving around it drops again. It's unbearable.

I can run games like Doom, Crysis 2, etc., with highest settings with stable performance.

Does it really take a GTX 1080 to run Mass Effect Andromeda with ok results? It run perfectly fine on the same box running Windows 10 - just to note that it's not the hardware.

Looking for feedback on Goliath Envious FX, the scaleable successor to GoliathOUFX.

As anyone with a 4K or 1440p monitor and has used GoliathOUFX knows, GoliathOUFX has no scaling and is/was locked to a non negotiable size that was only usable at 1080p. That's a major problem. An effort was made to improved this so that you can scale it by an launch argument(just as it is currently in Goliath Envious FX) however as it turns out, UI scaling isn't as simple as multiplying pixel values by a number. Things broke when using one scale value but looked fine in other and nothing was pixel perfect.

So I've decided to do a GUI redo called Goliath Envious FX which:

A. is scalable.

B. is much more expandable(features/content)

C. resizable and uses system decorations

Which are all very nice improvements IMO. Goliath Envious FX will dynamically adapt to it's current size, making UI elements smaller or bigger depending on size using JavaFX's property binding to make width/heights of various components a percentage of the parent UI element(AKA Responsive Design). Anything that can't be done this way(or easily anyway) is just scaled using the input scaling argument which results in not 1:1 UI scaling but not unusable and/or ugly UI.

Not everything is perfect however. In addition to above, I personally feel like the new UI lacks the straightforwardness of the old design(one of the things I would really like feedback on) and there are glaring problems with JavaFX's UI resizing performance that causes the white background to show when resizing as well as UI components showing horizontal scrollbars(and staying there until window resize), and when slow resizing when unmaximizing the window.

And so I'm looking for feedback on this new UI. For 4K and 1440p users, do you find the UI scaling usable and without any weird glitching? Is there enough margin/padding/spacing around UI components? Should content be moved elsewhere? Should I used a different UI component for something? Is the text in the bottom left corner enough feedback on whether or not something as been applied?

You can download it here. The requirements for running is the same as GoliathOUFX. This is a beta version with everything but NvXConfig(coolbits setting) and OSD implemented. The way overclocking is done under the hood is all the same it's just the UI that is different. You can change the UI scaling by doing:

./GoliathEnviousFX --scale 2

for 4k or:

./GoliathEnviousFX --scale 1.5

for 1440p. If you are using a 1080p monitor you can change this value to get a larger font/UI but more text will hide as you increase the scaling.

If you aren't able to download or use it and want to give your input, here is a screenshot.

So, when a platinum game inevitably doesn't work on my pc, but the process keeps running, how do I then kill the process I don't know the name of, or have a window for?

Besides exiting steam...

My task manager is the update-y type because apparently someone thinks I want to know my processes in real time, and not a nice list where I can find my program and click "end process". (so it's useless). The ctrl esc whatever trick where you get a death skull on your mouse to kill a window also doesn't work because there is no window. Just an invisible process running.

What do?

Laptop discussion

Building a laptop to suit seems difficult to impossible these days with what is available to us as opposed to desktop solutions. I've noticed that most of them come with those horrible chicklet keyboards and likely sabotaged to lock somebody into windows 10. Good thing with things like Steam is more games are linux compatible now, which has always been a hurdle for deciding to just use ubuntu and be done with the windows nightmare. As I see current events, something like windows 10 is so abusive that I cannot tolerate this under any circumstance. Of course, laptops are always hit or miss and I've always been a Lenovo Thinkpad fan for their cross-platform compatibility, however, it appears they chose to become scum as well. Any laptop successes out there running Ubuntu and Steam with games like csgo, l4d2 or perhaps newer ones? With a decent keyboard? I'd hate to drop 2k and have it be an expensive paperweight.

Need help with Hybrid Graphics Laptop

Hey folks,

I run a debian laptop using the latest version 9.6, this is mostly a work laptop but I would love to be able to play some games on it from time to time, Steam Play was easy to setup, but dealing with drivers on a hybrid laptop have really pushed my patience to it's limits.

I've followed countless tutorials on how to deal with bumblebee and alike, then was told that you just needed nvidia drivers to run Steam Play games using nvidia-xrun prefix, but whatever I do, I just end up with either a blank screen on reboot after installing drivers, or a non-working GPU, forcing me to purge everything I installed.

Did any of you ever experienced this and found a clear solution ?Thanks in advance for your answers

Additionnal Info:

-Laptop reference is MSI GE60-2PE, with an I7 4710HQ, and a GTX 860M, both recognized by lspci command

-My sources.list is running contrib and non-free

X4. Any progress?

I was wondering if anyone has made X4 work for them. With the latest Proton beta, I get past the splash screen into something that looks like it should be a menu, but nothing happens there. Anyone with a different experience?

winehq-staging vs wine-staging

I have fully removed Windows now but when I went to setup a few games with Lutris it said to make sure I had wine and everything. I added the repo from winehq and got the following:

Last metadata expiration check: 0:10:59 ago on Sat 22 Dec 2018 08:23:06 PM EST.

(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages or '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages)

I think this is because wine-core was a dependency of Lutris.

I was able to install the regular wine-staging package. Does anyone know what the difference is?

Gothic lags like hell

A few days ago I felt nostalgia and decided to play Gothic I. After a bit of tinkering I got it to work in Wine (3.12-staging to be precise) through Lutris. The install script that Lutris offers didn't work for me and I had to look up some things online, but the game starts, yay! (had to winetricks -q directmusic).

I've installed the PlayerKit and SystemPack mods (which do stuff and remove 30 fps cap, allowing the game to run as fast as possible).

Now, Gothic is a very old game, and my computer has no problems with it, after start this piece of digital entertainment runs butter-smooth.

However, after playing it a bit, I'm noticing it's starting to stutter. And with time performance gets worse and worse! I had the will to play it until about 12 fps, then I decided it was just unenjoyable. How can this be fixed? Gothic is such a gem and I remember running it in Wine 1.7-something. (It was awful by the way, my computer was rubbish back then).

I got the game from GOG if that helps, also, my specs:

Lutris BF4 installs, but won't launch (DXGI: Present param not supported)

So I've got BF4 installed and Origins is working great in Ubuntu 18.10, but BF4 syncs with the cloud, I get a screen flash, and then nothing. From what I'm gathering I'm having an issue with Microsoft's DXGI but I have not a clue where to begin to solve it. I'm running a Ryzen 7 2700x, Geforce GTX 1070 system.

I went to the File Browser and browsed to the DirectX, PunkBuster and Visual C directories and installed those manually as well. DirectX and PunkBuster installed as if they hadn't been installed, and Visual C asked to repair or to exit since it was already installed. I'm not sure if I need to be installing a different version of DirectX than what is in that folder? Anywho....

My terminal says:

Legend of Heroes - Zero no Kiseki: Text is all gibberish

Hey there

The game is playable but I have a couple problems. First, the cutscenes are cut(they don't show, it skips to the next playable scene or just shows a black screen where you press a key and it skips to the playable scene). Second, the text on dialogues and playable scenes is all gibberish.

https://i.redd.it/aas0lhok9w521.png

However, the menus, for example, are showing the letters/text correctly:

https://i.redd.it/b46n2ycp9w521.png

This is the output I get when running it from terminal:

https://i.redd.it/bibm9eidbw521.png

The "fixme" keeps going, never stops. The voices are not working, but to be honest that's the least of the problems. I just need the cutscenes to show and the text to show the right letters on the dialogue scenes.

Any help is welcome.

How I was able to get GoG and DRM-Free Humble games to work almost all the time.

Ive created a collection of libraries that i took from the steam runtime. Now i have a portable "library of libraries" that i can use on GoG games, Humble Games, and pretty much any Linux executable. The library contains over 400 different dependencies for both 64 and 32 bit, this ensures that almost ANY game will have proper dependencies.

What i had to do.

In order to get the game to work i first tested it with a simple command that changes the path of libraries to my custom folder with the dependencies. This was the first command i used.

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/$USER/Documents/LinuxLibraries/i386/

You can instantly see what was wrong here, i only pointed it to the 32 bit libraries so if it was 64 bit it didnt work, so i tried to make a script that automatically detected the arch of the executable. But that was WAY over-complicated, so instead i did this:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/$USER/Documents/LinuxLibraries/i386/:/home/$USER/Documents/LinuxLibraries/x86_64/

This command sets the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to two different directories for both 64 bit and 32 bit. So i had it working 100% of the time. But it isn't perfect, i needed a way to use this without having to type it in every single time; so i was able to add this line to the start.sh scripts in order to get them to run it without having to type it in the terminal.

In Conclusion.

GoG doesnt take care of its Linux audience well so its our job to take care of each-other for now. I plan on adding a auto-patcher and hopefully a GUI to make it easier to use. Here is the link.

As of right now the Steam Play Wine version does not work so a native version would be great. If we all leave a comment on this discussion post I bet that would help accelerate the release. Thanks!

ARMA and TeamSpeak in the same Proton Container/Installenvironment

Hello,

would love to check out Linux again in a personal gaming environment. I use it on a daily and professional basis on my job. That said: How can I run a Game (ARMA 3 in this instance) and TeamSpeak in a same environment due some dlls need to "see" each other for a communication mod like TFAR or ACRE? Or can I just go ahead, install TS through Proton/Wine as well and get going with the interlink between the game (mod) and the TeamSpeak plugin?

Thanks alot for your help!

Games Keep Crashing

Hi I'm having trouble with keeping Magic the Gathering Arena from crashing every like 25 minutes. I'm using the latest versions of wine and lutris to run them I believe, and the game runs fine until it crashes, but when I'm in a game, it will just out of nowhere just crash while I'm playing. I don't know what the problem is, and I have no experience with all of this.

I just want to play games on my chromebook :(

PS. I do also have steam and play games on there, and in the past never had any problems with random crashes, so I don't believe it is something wrong with my equipment. The game is also on the lowest graphics mode.

Thanks!

How to set up gallium nine wine in ubuntu 18.10

there's all this excitement about how 18.10 officially supports gallium nine but there are no installation tutorials.

how is it done?

when you add the gallium nine wine repository : sudo add-apt-repository ppa:commendsarnex/winedri3

it says : IMPORTANT: This PPA only supports Bionic now

So, what good reason is there for mesa-vulcan not being included with proton, or Steam telling you that you need to download an outside dependency, instead of playing dumb with a random error?

So, apparently, the only way to make your game work with Proton is to have your game not work, google various parts of an error for hours, and then finding in some obscure part of the internet, a person telling another guy to check the proton github and find the special section to make it run on ubuntu, and then it tells you you need mesa-vulcan dependency.

Like, genious, why not just giving me an automatic option to download it them , or downloading it automatically, instead of playing dumb?

What reason, seriously, is there that a person has to go through all these steps to get an essential piece of software, without which half your games won't work? Adding some bozos random repository whose link might become dead whenever.

Like, why all the extra steps? Does Valve want peopel to be able to paly games, or to become Linux users who like to go on an adventure hunt every time they want something to work?

Gimme 1 reason, just 1 tiny reason, please.

blackscreen when trying to launch games through lutris

Today I updated Manjaro and installed the nvidia beta drivers from the official repos. I also updated lutris I have worked out that It's not the driver as games through proton run fine. I have tried using protonified build and my Uplay games as well as windows steam games that worked fine in the past blackscreen and need to be force quit. Things were working fine in the past through lutris.

PC freezes completely having to use case button to turn of after sometime gaming.

Hello, not sure if this is the correct to post it but I have tried multiple times to fix this and its killing me.

I am running Elementary OS Juno (5.0, based on Ubuntu 18.04) with latest mesa drivers from Padoka Stable.

It happens with some games, like Dying Light, Tabletop Simulator or Dolphin emulator (specifically running Metroid Prime 2). I play for some time, 10-20 minutes and then the pc completely freezes, forcing me to use the hardware button to turn off the pc, I can't use the reset button on my case because it wont do anything. I have to hold the power button on my case to turn off the pc.

This has happened since running Loki (based on 16.04 ubuntu). Playing on windows partition does not result in freezes.

Temperatures seem normal never going above 80. GPU or CPU.

CPU: Intel i7-4820K (8) @ 4.500GHz

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7970/8970

Memory: 3387MiB / 11929MiB

Porting over emulators for Debian 8 BSD and other packages.

I am wanting to be able to make packages from source code. I have tried the Debian foums and they have not been of any use. I am looking for help in how to do this. As for my experiance with source code it is not much. I have compiled three programs for linux. I have used source compiles on package managers for OSX. So it is not much. As for why it is because the distro I am using does not have many packages. I am looking mostly for updates to packages, drivers, and games that mostly are emulators.

The distro I am using is Debian BSD 8. Debain made a BSD version that lasted up to Jessie aka Debian 8. I found the latest version to be Debian 8 BSD RC 3 for both 32bit and 64bit. The defualt repo's that come with the ISO's don't work. That means you have to use the ones on the web site. Out side of the ones on the one Debian mirrors page no other mirrors or repos work. I tried the multimida repos and it does not work. I tried to use ppa's and none of those work ether.

I know that there are no other repo's exist out here do to the changes made by Debian/kfreebsd 8 Jessie. I tried the ppa scr method and it did not work. Then I dried using Gdebi and it does not work ether. This is because it is based on K/freebsd and there are changes. While the architechure is for the x86 cpu becuase of these debs and binarys don't work.

For example I like to be able to update XFCE to version 4.12. The latest version is 4.13 and 4.14 and they are only for Ubuntu 18.04/Debiain 9. I have used 4.12 on Ubuntu 16.04 and it is quite nice. The main issue is that this verson on Debian BSD 8 is super out of date and could be causing some GTK issues I am having with some of the programs I want to install.

I am using Linux Mint 18 as my main system. The reason is it just works right now. I tried Debian BSD 8 on my laptop. While it boots it does not finish installing. This is because the system uses the kernel of FreeBSD 10. The current version of FreeBSD is version 12. The laptop is HPStream PC that came out in 2014. It works on Linux Mint 17.2 and 17.3, but not 17.1. It is most likly do to drivers. I wan't to be able to get the distro to run on my hardware. That is why building the kernel is some thing else on the list. I also need support for my Xbox 360 controler too. Also it would be nice if I could get the BFS driver or the GD-ROM driver from NetBSD.

I am also a gamer and I like emulators. There is VBA-gtk and Higan and nether of them work. VBA-gtk does not run at all. Higan does not have open gl support. I also use VBAm, mGBA, medusa, snes9x, gens-gs, kega-fusion, cen64-qt, m64.py, muppen-qt, ect. Most have debs for Ubuntu and I would like to get them working.

As for why I am doing it is because I am stuck. I am not liking where Linux is going at the moment. I also don't like how FreeBSD is going at right now. I am from the Linux Mint side of things as I just want things to work. That does not happen for me with linux or FreeBSD. I also LIKE the idea of a FreeBSD system that has an easy to use binary package installer that does not have to be reinstalled every two years. I don't care about the SystemD debate about how things should be done.

I don't have much experiance with compileing. Most things I have compiled ether are part of a package system or they use standard make files. I found out that many devs use this thing called cmake and that Debain users lover it. It is hard for me to understand. i want to be able to compile these programs and make them into deb files so I can ether host them or put them on a DVD. I am on Cmake 3.01 and most programs need at least cmake 3.1 and that means I have to update cmake and there is not update to camke in the repo.

I tried to do reasearch on using this program and all the videos are about cmake for programs, but not for compilers. MOST OF THE GUIDS ARE NOT FOR NORMAL PEOPLE.

What [headset] to choose for Linux, in 2019 ?

Hi

A long time ago, the answer i got was pretty simple: "anything USB with self contained sound card - you will have problems with everything else".

Is it still true ?

It was for me: i got problems with everything bluetooth, and my usb headset with a self contained sound card worked out of the box - but linux was never very efficient at choosing it when i plug it.

What do you use/recommend ?

I'm looking for something with a mic i can easily mute/unmute, no "false leather" (the thing that crumble after a year), big size (i have a big head, i wear glasses), good quality (price below 200), maybe wireless (if the delay is non existent - all the bluetooth headset i used had around 1sec delay, which was unusable), form factor "around the ears" (i always been hurt by headset about 1h after using them, i hope that form factor can help with pain).

Warframe Crashes during the First Quest on the Orb Vallis

It seems to be crashing when something loads in. There are multiple times when it crashes in the first mission:

  1. A few seconds after the loading elevator
  2. After procuring all of the supply caches, before engaging the drone
  3. After defeating 30 enemies after hacking the drone
  4. While defeating the 30 enemies while hacking the drone

Here is a gist of the log file.

I'm running a GTX 860M, running 415.25. As far as Wine goes, I'm using wine[-devel]-4.0-rc2 with DXVK 0.94. The overrides for Warframe.x64.exe are only d3d11 (native) and dxgi (native), because I have the dlls in the folder which the executable is located.

PSA: if you are getting stuttering in some games, check your CPU governor policy

I feel like an idiot. I installed Rise of Tomb Raider, and the game launcher notified me that my CPU governor was set incorrectly. I check cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor and it says "ondemand". I'm on Fedora so I installed kernel-tools and then

sudo systemctl enable --now cpupower

this set the governor to performance, now the fan is a bit noisier but most games are working great without slowdowns. Day of Infamy usually stuttered a lot playing coop, and Tannenberg had regular fps drops.

So, check your CPU governor policy.

Help, I Can't run a game shell file

Hi guys, I'm a Linux noob (just have it since a few weeks) and I've downloaded Full Throttle Remastered when it was free on GOG last week. I tried to make it work today but I'm stuck on the first step as I can't even run the installer shell file that I've downloaded. While using the Terminal it says that the file can't be found.

When I open the shell file with gedit it says that the file is loading, but it takes ages (10 minutes for 1%) and it uses a lot of memory.

What have I missed?

I use Ubuntu 16.04.

Thanks for your help

Alternatives to Steam OS

A use Fedora since it first came out and Red Hat before that. When Steam for Linux came out I first used it on Fedora, but because of the incompatibilities and manual tweaking I changed my gaming system to Steam OS instead. First, it used to work fine. But for about a year now, I ran into some serious issues: games not working because of outdated drivers and Proton not working because Steam OS is not the intended target (really!). I changed from NVidia graphics to ATI but other than not having to worry about the binary driver it did not really improve things.

I am not wondering of changing from Steam OS to Ubuntu (which is the only supported distribution for Proton according to the developers on GitHub) would be a good idea. Maybe someone can answer the following questions:

1.) Are (Mesa) drivers kept up to date on Ubuntu or is there a any good community repository for this which does not break the system all the time?

2.) For the best experience (mostly game compatibility), should the latest release or LTS release be used?

3.) Can save games be migrated from Steam OS to a Steam installation on Ubuntu?

4.) Is controller support (Xbox pad as well as Steam OS controller) the same as on Steam OS?

5.) Is there a way to boot into fullscreen Steam on Ubuntu?

6.) Anything else important?

Is the "support" just basically about graphics APIs?

What I mean is that like for example is the Just Cause 4 not supported on Linux just because it uses DirectX and not OpenGL or is there something more to that "support".

recommendations for my current situation?

I know that library of VR linux games is very slim if any, but that brings me to idea, how well stuff like oculus or computer-to-cardboard streaming software runs under Crossover ? I paid for crossover, I'm happy with it but can it run oculus or computer-to-cardboard streaming software without(or with minor) problems ? Is there someone from metrix who can tell me personal experience how well those things does / does not run ?

Buy an RX-580 that was used for mining?

Local guy has a Sapphire Nitro RX-580 8GB card he's selling used for $150. Was listed with a bunch of other cards, so I asked if it was used for mining. He said he bought it new about a year ago, tried to mine with it but couldn't get it right, and didn't like the way AMD miners worked. So it sat in a drawer since then and is practically new. Couldn't tell you if the guy also sells used cars for a living. Any advice is appreciated on:

1) Any way I could tell by looking / testing the card if it's actually low-hours? I'm familiar with the Heaven benchmark software, if that helps.

2) I mostly play Rocket League on a Lubuntu 16 machine with an ASRock Pro v3, 16GB DDR3. Currently has a GTX 750 1GB that is getting too stuttery to play. Any issues with putting an RX-580 in that config (once I get my new 600w power supply)?

Thanks for the input, all. I can't wait for a new GPU so I can get back to watching 12-year-olds kick my ass at 60fps.

PokerStars on Linux Help

Hi guys, I've used wine to allow me to play poker using the pokerstars client. I want to use a poker tracker alongside my game to improve my odds. I recently tried pokertracker 4 and Jivaro. Pokertracker 4 failed in the installation when I was prompted to install a package the software uses and the installation failed. Jivaro installed successfully but I was not able to get the HUD working in client. Can someone help me set up a poker HUD for pokerstars?

I think I picked the right time to quit Windows entirely

So, I've been using Linux for a couple years now in a dual boot with W8.1. Early on, I very, very quickly transitioned into Linux for 95% of my non-gaming daily stuff (reddit and... other stuff?), but kept Windows for gaming mostly. It was immediately clear to me that Linux (Mint) was exactly what I wanted out of an OS, and Windows was... not.

Well, a few weeks ago I just said fuck it, I've had enough of Windows, and I'll just suck it up with the loss of games and see how it goes (I am not the most in-tune person to current events in Linuxland lol)

Apparently this was not the sacrifice I thought it would be...

Anyway, I just wanted to say this is an awesome time to be a Linux gamer, and I think with the opening up of gaming to Linux users, Windows is going to have to fight hard to keep its market share over the coming decade. I'm sure there's a ton of people like me who hate(d) using Windows but always said "I can't do Linux because of my games". This has to be the start of a tidal wave of gamers migrating out of Windows. Exciting times, and for once in a good way!

tl;dr: I should've been subbed to this sub for the past year at least.

Seeking a WINE+DXVK Guide

So I've been running Ubuntu 18.04 exclusively since about October with pretty solid results. 90% of my games run fluidly without issue.

But I'm using 3 different front-ends for WINE to basically accomplish that. Some games I pump through Lutris, some through PlayOnLinux, some through Crossover.

I checked the sidebar and did some rudimentary searching, but with little result. I'm hoping for a guide to setting up WINE and DXVK, to hopefully reduce the amount of software I'm using to accomplish the same goal. My ideal would be setting up a WINE prefix that can just handle gaming, straight up- the goal any of us have, I'm sure, but for now I'd just settle for being able to cut down on WINE front-ends.

Am I a madman?

Steam - 'invalid platform' for one PC game only

I use a Mac and I bought a PC-only game on Steam today (Pro Cycling Manager 2018). I've tried both Playonmac and Crossover, and in both cases Steam installs fine, but I still get the invalid platform error for this game when I try to install it.

I have other PC games, such as the Elder Scrolls games, and I can install those as normal.

Why might this game alone not work, is there anything I can try to fix this?

Thanks!

Best Linux distro for gaming?

I'm finally moving from Windows 10. I just can't take anymore of those bugs and data collection practises. I have used Linux a little bit before but not that much I could fix every problem and thing etc. without help on the Internet.

So I'm looking good Linux distro for gaming (Steam mainly). I would also enjoy stability, privacy & security. I don't like that OS collects data about me. I have tried Ubuntu before but I got some weird vertical lines on it. I read it was related to GNOME thing which Ubuntu uses so maybe I should then use non-GNOME Linux (or what is it even?). Or was the issue even related to it, I'm not expert at these things. Also I don't like Ubuntu privacy problems.

Also I have some questions about drivers too. I'm using Nvidia Gtx 1060 as GPU and I have always installed official drivers fom manufacturer site on Windows. So how does driver things work on Linux? Like should I install GPU driver from Nvidia? I have heard that default Linux GPU driver sucks on performance and displays things on wrong resolution (just like Windows). And what about other drivers from my motherboard company? I'm using ASUS motherboard. Where I should find those drivers or does Linux provides by default best drivers? (I have heard that Debian doesn't provide drivers?). And ASUS doesn't even seems to provide Linux drivers. Btw here is my motherboard:

https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z170-P/

And final question:

Does Linux install some drivers automatically like Windows?

Fun games similar to DayZ that isn't Rust?

LOVED DayZ SA. But it's "full release" to 1.0 is a shitshow, and doesn't work on Linux anyway. I really like the:

  • exploration
  • survival aspects, crafting, fishing etc.
  • PVP was lots of fun, mainly bc of how difficult it was to be accurate in shooting.
  • Meeting folks was fun too.
  • I liked the realistic rendering too. Unlike games like Rust which looks like a cartoon to me.

Any other games with this feeling/experience? I don't like Rust bc it feels too cartoony and is too heavily based on crafting.

Help with Virtualization.

I don't know where else to ask for this kind of stuff, thank you for reading and possibly helping.

I'm trying to set up TWO Virtual Machines, 1 Linux Mint, 1 Windows 10.

I want Linux Mint as my main 'OS' for gaming and use Windows 10 for those pesky anti-cheat games.

I only have a SINGLE GPU, NO IGPU

So I was looking around, and the only thing I can find that fits my needs is unRAID, which runs as a headless client that I can control even from my phone , but I also read a lot online that unRAID is making you pay for things you can do for free and that I should use things like Proxmox, KVM or ESXI, but those require having a distro installed, which is impossible for me since I don't have a second GPU to dedicate to it to passthrough to my currently running VM.

So basically I want to run 2 VMs(one at a time) with a single GPU passing through to whichever VM asks for it. I also want to do this on a single computer.

How do I do this? Or is there somewhere I can go for a tutorial for this exact or similar scenario? I can't find any good information that doesn't just point fingers to "use X or Y". I was really interested in unRAID because it just runs off a USB and requires no GPU since it's controlled through the local network on a web browser.

Thanks for taking the time to read, sorry if this information is actually readily available and maybe I just didn't use the right keywords searching or something.

PC BUILD: Can only fit a single GPU as well.
CPU: Ryzen 2700x

GPU: Vega 64

Playing Counter Strike Source with Proton

Hello,

I'd like to play some CSS on my laptop running Manjaro. I know there's a native port of CSS to linux but it runs really badly with only OpenGL support. I thought I could use some DXVK to see how it goes. It's such a shame that Steam doesn't let you install the Windows build and use Proton.

So I've downloaded the Windows release with steamcmd, and installed Proton. Everything is going well so far, I can launch the game just fine with STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH=~/.proton/ python3 /home/myname/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Proton\ 3.7/proton run /home/myname/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/CSSW/hl2.exe -game cstrike -w 1920 -h 1080.

Then whenever I try to launch a local game or join a server, it tells me my CD key is invalid. When I'm ingame, my Steam client tells me I'm just "online" and not "in game", so I guess there's no IPC at all with my client.

Do I have to add parameters to the command, add an environment variable, or launch this from a steam program?

Is there some documentation I could read about this?

Thanks!

Googles Project Stream is Damn Interesting.

I'm on Fedora 29 and got accepted into Googles Project Stream trial. They basically promised a free Assassins Creed Odyssey key just for trying the same game out over on Project Stream. I got accepted yesterday and this morning I figured I'd give it a try. Honestly, I'm stunned. There are no loading screens, graphics are pretty damn HD at 4K. No tearing, no hiccups, it's responsive and overall a 9/10 experience. I'm running it through Google's Chrome browser.

As for 9/10 I don't have Alt+Tab (gotta pause the game, holding escape). The first fight as Alexio something happened where Alexio locked on straight ahead and made fighting the enemies on my flanks feel really broken. On the KDE spin, I can't take a great screenshot without capturing my other 4K monitor and without pausing the game. I'll upload the shot I did take in a comment later.

Overall, in the end, I'm incredibly impressed. We've all been here before but Google imho has it figured out and I hope to see more games come down like this. I do hope we end up owning our games and can download them but if streaming them was the only option that made Windows only titles run anything like it is now, I'll seriously consider it.

Anyone know if the game is being served by a Linux machine?

So how often does Steam intend to update the Proton list with "platinum" windows games that work out of the box on Linux?

I've been sitting here on my Dark souls 3 which is running, but nothing happens, so I wouldn't say it's "platinum", but whatever. I'd like my "linux compatible " list to get updated, so I can play some more games. Gambling with my whole library would be kinda sucky because every game on protondb has bad and good reviews. Like, people say Vice gity is gold, but to me and one other guy, the mouse is rotating. So yea. No.

Also, put the Protondb link somewhere where people can actualyl see it, and say "check this whether your game is compatible", to prevent noobs from asking questions about whether their game works or not.

[Question - maybe offer] Are these games playable on Linux and/or Linux-Steam by someone who doesn't want to become an Arch dev just for a game?

I bought a graphics card (MSI Radeon RX 570) for a new computer build. It's not a gaming compy, but if it games, great. I'm running Linux Mint on it, though I suppose I could run some other distro. The card came with 2 free game downloads. I don't know if I can use them.

My question: are these playable with a reasonable (not insane) amount of effort/setup by someone who is a Linux user but certainly not a developer or coder or even Arch user?

I get my choice of 2 of the following:

  • Resident Evil 2
  • Devil May Cry 5
  • Tom Clancy's The Division 2

I used to have a Steam account (about 10 years ago), but haven't used it in a long time. It would be worth getting back into the Steam world if that would make pretty games like these run. Edit: IDK if Steam is an option, now that I think about it; the Newegg digital offer is through AMDRewards, so maybe that can't be Steam? Also, maybe this is because I bought an AMD processor, not the graphics card?

I'm a very occasional gamer. I don't game much because I'd prefer to keep my day job, and I know how I get with a good game (kind of like how an opium addict gets with some good heroin). The graphics card was a decent price (for me) even without the free game offer. Therefore, if it's a lot of hassle to make these work with a Linux distribution, or if they just won't work any time soon, I'll offer the download codes for cheap (or trade, maybe for a game I could run) to someone who can use them.

Any advice? Experience? Telling me I'm a casual and I should GTFO? Just kidding; don't say the last one, unless it's phrased nicely, please.

Team Fortress 2 doesn't start

I haven't played Team Fortress 2 in monthes and seeing that there was a new update, I wanted to check it. To my surprise, the game doesn't start anymore. I click play, my avatar border goes green (meaning "in game") for a second, then back to blue. Not even a black screen, nothing. Tried to run Steam from a terminal to get an output and I get absolutely nothing in it when clicking play.

I've tried to check the files integrity, i've tried CS:GO which runs fine (besides the usual issues), so it doesn't seem to be a general issue with Source games. Other games work fine too (just tried Hitman).

I suspect this is an issue with the update but as my hardware has changed since last time I played TF2, I'm a bit in the dark.

So, has anybody been able to launch TF2 since yesterday's update?

Please recommend me some hardware-heavy Linux games!

I have been using Linux pretty extensively for a few years (mostly Ubuntu and Mint) on my laptop and I love it, but I'm pretty new to gaming on Linux. I've run a few games natively (some lighter Steam titles, some good classics like UrW or DorfFort etc), played around with DOSBox and emulators, but my laptop is pretty weak so didn't do much else. Now I am in the process of building a new desktop, since my old one is pretty shit by now. And also as a christmas gift for myself/treat after having survived 4 months of 80h/week work + college murder combo.

I've picked the parts mostly for low price, but getting a 390X was an informed decision - my "research" shows that AMD cards are just better for Linux. And I got it super cheap as well.

The build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/4L9YzY

RAM here is wrong since the die I chose (Crucial 1x16GB 2400 CL17) was not on the list. And I chose that die mostly because it looked *NORMAL*, instead of the disgusting RGB GAMING style. No PSU yet, I will be buying it tomorrow - but don't worry, I know my shit enough not to fry anything. CPU is still in transit, but will probably get here tomorrow. Future plans are getting a second SSD (although 480GB is absolutely enough for me for now, and I also have a 1TB external HDD for other storage) and a second RAM die, but I thought it would be overkill right now. Also, I will be using two 1080p@60Hz screens - it's what I got and it's good enough. Upgrading to anything better is nowhere on the horizon. Also, I usually don't do OC. If I ever do OC, it will be after tedious hours of research so nothing burns, safety first. ;-)

I am planning to run Debian Stretch, with either LXDE or Xfce (can't decide - throw your vote). I will do my homework with drivers and stuff, install Steam and all that jazz. Wine is fine, obviously.

Now to the question: what can I throw at this PC to really feel like I have upgraded, and see the holy power of Linux gaming? I will definitely be running Rust at high (my current desktop was struggling at absolute lowest of the low, with only the draw distance at some sensible level), Stellaris (medium was fine graphically, but endgame was a chore thanks to my gen4 i3) and Ark (sub-20fps at low, more or less unplayable). I will try anything interesting as long as it is proven to run on Linux (it's fine if I have to do some tinkering though), but I am out of inspiration for what I even should be trying. And this is only about reasonably graphics-heavy, "benchmark" games - the stuff I usually play is rather light and most of it runs natively on Linux. For those games, I barely needed to upgrade.

I suppose this is a cry for help - I want to prove to myself that building this PC was not a complete waste of money.

In my recent searches trying to find drivers and utilities to manage sensitivity and LEDs of my Logitech gaming mouse. I could not find a consolidated list of utilities for managing peripherals like these so I decided to create on.

AMD GPU Passthrough Help.

First, thank you for taking the time to read my post and possibly help!

I'm not 'new' to reddit but I barely use it so sorry if there may be a post extremely similar to mine, but I promise I did some searching!

Onto the problem, I'm planning on putting together a new PC with a Ryzen 2700x, Radon RX 590 inside an Evolv Shift, so there's the first hitch, it only supports a single GPU but I just can't let this case go, it's too good looking.

So, I've done some digging and such through several reddit forums like r/VFIO (I don't know where else to look, or if there's other, better options other than VFIO) and here as well for ways to do GPU Passthrough with a single GPU, and have that same GPU work for both Linux Host AND Windows Guest(both local). I've read threads of unbinding and rebinding the GPU as needed without rebooting and using something like lookinglass in order to view the windows VM. I don't mind the GPU sometimes getting stuck and not rebinding and having to reboot either since I will be running off an 860 EVO for Linux, I just don't want to dualboot because Windows can be nasty to boot managers.

I also plan on using Linux Mint 19. (I currently use this on my laptop for uni and game testing)

I also want to mention that I have tried this before with 2 GPUS but I eventually gave up when I couldn't get it to work, mostly because I killed by GPU when I took the cooler off because the fans weren't spinning...I fixed the fans by plugging them into a motherboard header, but either the card was dead or it didn't like not having fans plugged into its own board...

So yeah, is it possible? Are there any guides into getting this to work? Since all I can find are guides with dual GPUs and most of the information is over a year old so I don't know how relevant any of it could be.

Again sorry if there may be something similar to this, reddit's not my forte.

If I was to build a new PC, that was not meant to run windows but needed to have maximum benefit when gaming with Steam (or just in general), what hardware (vendors, versions, ...) should i best consider?

Or could it be that the one thing i should aim for is an AMD GPU instead of Nvidia?

All tips welcome!

Foxhole from Steam - PlayOnMac crash [help]

Hello,

I've managed to install 64bit Steam with PlayOnMac and also edit the config.vdf file by inserting the content hosts. After downloading and installing Foxhole trough Steam, apparently with success, the game crashes at start. I'm using macOS Mojave.

The error is Fatal Error:

Unhandled exception: page fault read access to 0x000000a8 in 64-bit code...
Register dump:
...
...
...
System information:
Wine build: wine-3.17
Platform: x86_64
Version: Windows 7
Host system: Darwin
Host version: 18.2.0

Also, I've tried to run the War.exe file in the Terminal. I have brew with wine and winetricks installed, but no success on that either.

Is there a fix or workaround for this issue? Thanks in advance.

Linux Gaming Help

Alright, this post is about VFIO, Lookinglass and such.

I've been finding some slightly confusing information about running a Linux host with a Windows guest and being able to swap the GPU between the two freely, and how it's possible but it's buggy in the whole "release and catching" cycles with Nvidia GPUS, but it's more reliable on AMD GPUS(which I plan on getting). I've tried getting KVM to work and eventually gave up because I just couldn't get it to work andd I had 2 GPUs at the time.

I'm planning on putting together a new computer, specifically using a Ryzen 2700x and an RX 590 inside a Phanteks Evolv Shift, which does not fit more than 1 GPU and I want to ditch windows, is it possible to swap the GPU freely between the two OS's without reboots, hell rebooting would honestly not be that bad since I'd be running off an 860 EVO.

Oh and I'm planning on using Linux MINT 19.

Anyone know if NBA 2k15 works in Proton? I don't wanna download 50 gigs, and then realize that the game won't even start like I have with Dark Souls 3.

Does anyone know whether NBA 2k15 works with Proton out of the box. I don't know how to do configurations ,and how to use wine, so I hope someone knows .

Tnx!

also, I heard Dark souls 1 works good, can anyone confirm.

I confirm to you that Dirt 3 complete works sublime, even better than on windows. Codemasters games seem to work nicely with Proton for some reason, I dunno.

Bad performance in games

I have tried playing CSS and CSGO on linux. Although I have very high fps, there is screen tearing/sluggish performance when I move the camera. This happens with both games but unfortunately I don't have any other game that I can play natively on Linux to test. On Windows both games perform very well.

I have an Optimus laptop with CPU i7-6700HQ and GPU Nvidia Geforce GTX 950m. I use the proprietary drivers (latest version). I have tried changing the settings, enabling vsync, etc but nothing works. Is this a problem related to Nvidia? How can I fix that?

Trying to install BTD6 with Wine

I'm trying to install BTD6 through the use of a wrapper because that's the way a tutorial I watched about a year ago said to do it so I've installed steam via winetricks and everything works fine but on the steam download page for BTD6 it says my software isn't available on my current platform, but some other games are available to be installed. I've tried changing the windows version in the CFG but that hasn't made any difference, does anyone know where I might be going wrong?

If it helps I'm also getting an error with the steam web helper that makes it need to close.

I'm using Wineskin Wrapper 2.6.2 and engine WS9WineStaging 2.21

How I got Steam Link Working with PlayOnMac

Hey guys,

Thought I'd post this here so that hopefully someone else can use this to play windows games on mac via steam link.

So here's the drill.

Step 1:

Steam mac version of steam and log in as normal.

Step 2:

Install PlayOnMac

Step 3:

Install Steam via play on mac

Step 3.5:

I've found that steam tends to have issues connecting on playonmac so here are two things that may help

https://www.playonmac.com/en/comments-1142.html

https://www.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/comments/8r0gh6/steam_in_winedevel_content_servers_unreachable/

Step 4:

Install game on PlayOnMac version of steam

Step 5:

Add PlayOnMac to Mac version of steam.

Step 6:

Use the info on this page to boot steam link to desktop instead of big picture (you can skip this step if you want but I found big picture too laggy to use)

https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/143388408896908567/

Step 7:

Making sure PlayOnMac and the Windows version of steam are shutdown connect the steam link to the mac version of steam. Follow the instructions to get it working if it's your first time launching it.

Step 8:

Launch PlayOnMac via the Mac version of steam. Then Launch the windows version of steam.

Step 9:

From here you can launch any windows game. From what I've found controller support works fine via the steam link so there shouldn't be anything to worry about there, if not here are some mac drivers for the ps3 and xbox 360 controllers that you can install and it might help http://tattiebogle.net/index.php/ProjectRoot

From here it's up to you. From my experience this should work on anything that's a Macbook Air 2013 or above but lag may apply. Audio lag seems to be an issue here but from playonmac not the steam link so that's probably just the pc not being up to scratch. I got this working because my girlfriend wanted to be able to play lego games on her mac, and then play them on the tv so it has only really been tested with some old games, not sure how it would play out for newer titles but it just depends on how fast your mac is :) Hopefully this helps someone out there :) Happy gaming

I liked your ingratitude so much, that I went through the top 100-200 ranked steam linux games to recommend you the best ones

DISCLAIMER: ALL these games are recommended. They are the top of the pops. You can safely ignore any of my comments. But I just point to the shortcommings that some of them have. These 20 or so games are the most useable ones from rank 100 to rank 200. See how there is a lot less good games here than in the top 100? That just proves my theory of indie shovelware being mainly linux oriented, whereas AAA games aren't.

Name of Game Would I personally buy it Comment
Epistory YES Nice text typing game, has nice card icons
Psychonauts YES A Classic.Costs 99 cents. There is no excuse not to get it on sale
Total was Medieval 2 NO Cancerous EULA from a Cancerous Developer which had Spyware in the launcher until recently. But a solid total war game
Steamworld Heist MAYBE Nice looking turn based sniping game. Fishy. Had DLC
Shenzen IO DEFINITELY Already told you to buy all Zachtronics games
Prison Architect MAYBE People like it, so its good I guess. Normie vibe
Rogue Legacy YES Normie Castlevania with a spin and mediocre draw style
Braid DEFINITELY Its that time manupilation platformer. The next achievement after 25% completion is 1.1% completion called Speed Run. Asian speedrunner gang strikes again
Hyper Light Drifter NO Speedrun and bossrush achievements strike again, but now its 50% of achievements rather than just 1. Otherwise solid game
Steamworld Dig 2 MAYBE When you start it, you are greeted with a nice big this was financed by the European Comission. So you know that the devs didnt have to base their game around human rights and minorities and stuff like that, and made it exactly like they wanted it.
Momodora Reverie DEFINITELY Solid metroidvania
Rocket League NO Scummy DLC achievements and basically a dead game
Brutal Legend MAYBE Nice metal game that transforms from a normal third person game to an Overlord game at the end, and you gotta literally play a strategy game as endgame on servers which are dead
Shadow Warrior YES If you are 9 years old and get a chuckle out of wang Dong and like to shoot at bullet sponges Serious sam -style, then this is for you
Battle Chef brigade DEFINITELY Sublime Mix between 2d platformer and connect 3. Highly recommend
Dungeons of Dredmor NO Nice roguelike, but too many hard achievements and DLC
Saints row 4 YES If you like a game for 4 year olds that has terrible car controls and takes place in space and you can be gay with other people, then pick this
American Truck Simulator YES Ugh, I used to play this a lot, but Im just annoyed by it now. When you get enough fuck you money, you can just put a brick on the gas pedal and avoid traffic and go through red lights and play an infinitely more interesting game that way. If you have a wheel and shifter, it might be interesting to you from that aspect, but I dont so I paly need for speed with it
Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor YES Asassins creed meets Lord of the Rings. EULA is without cancer, but has DLC. Think its worth it
Guacamelee NO I wouldnt buy it because I find the mexican stereotypes annoying, but it is a solid game, with already on platinum edition or whatever, so you get a lot of content for pennies. Wait for a sale and get it.

Overwatch stuttering after game launches, slowly goes away

I recently installed Overwatch via Lutris. When I first load the game up and get into a game, fps is lowered quite a bit by the stuttering. Eventually it goes away and the game preforms almost perfectly, however it is quite bothersome to have to mess around in a custom game for a few minutes before I get to play every time I load the game. Any suggestions/fixes?

Edit: Probably a good idea to mention that I have nvidia graphics and i'm running the lutirs suggested version of wine and dxvk for overwatch

How to Play Anomaly Mod (Stalker Call of Pripyat, GoG Version) on Lutris or PlayonLinux?

Hello everyone.

I have Stalker Call of Pripyat, GoG version downloaded on my Solus distribution.

I like to play Anomaly mod on it.

Could someone kindly provide step-by-step instructions on running it via either PoL or Lutris?

Will there be any tangible differences in performance between PoL or Lutris?

I'm running Intel C2D E8400, 8GB RAM, Nvidia GT 1030, Xonar DG, and 500GB SSD.

I'm very new to Linux gaming so will appreciate detailed instructions.

Thanks very much.

Best Up To Date 32bit Distro for Retro Gaming?

I recently came across a "decent" Optiplex GX620. It used a 32bit system, and I'm curious as too what 32bit Distro would be best for this system?

Specs:

CPU: Intel Celeron D 2.66 GHz Single Core Processor (I know, Bad)

Memory: Originally 1gb of DDR2 Ram, I had old extra DDR2 sticks lying around and upgraded it to 4gb.

Hard Drive: 250 GB

Optical Drive: DVD R/RW

USB Ports 8 Total (Rear: 6, Front: 2)

Expansion Slots 2 - PCI Slot 1 - PCI-e x16

GPU: It did not have a GPU with it, and I happen to have an old Radeon HD 7570 at 1gb which has a clock speed of 650 MHz and Memory Clock of 900 MHz

Anyway, after the upgrades I put into it. I'm also aware of the bottlenecking, but I'm not too concerned, I bought the tower for $1 and didnt put anymore money into the tower itself.

Knowing all this, what would be the best distro route in going?

Running steam isolated/sandboxed on linux?

I was looking into firejail, bubblewrap and chroot to run steam in a sandbox, but it looks like it's going to be more trouble than it's worth (security issues, compatibility issues etc).

So I'm thinking about doing the following :

  • create a separate user account on my system.

  • install steam and then revoke sudo permissions for the user.

This way steam and the games can't really mess with the rest of the system and any security issues are confined to a non-sudo user.

What do you think about this approach? Pros and cons?

Wine crashes after I try to exit Fallout 3

I installed FO3 using Lutris (the default setup, no tweaks) and the game runs fine (I think, haven't played it much). However the annoying thing is that if I hit quit, I go to a nonresponsive black screen, that essentially freezes my computer.

I can't alt+tab out of it or do anything else really except hit the reset button.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and how to fix it?

Wine and Denuvo's spyware

Seeing as Denuvo is getting ever more popular and we are now able to play several titles infected with it, I have one big question: how does Wine handle Denuvo?

From my understanding, Denuvo performs lots of NT kernel calls and reads the entire RAM contents. This doesn't sound desirable, so does Wine try its best to pass along whatever Denuvo requests, or does it bypass it somehow? I've tried looking through the Wine mailing list, but never found any technical details.

There are a few games I'd like to pick up when they're cheap thanks to SteamPlay, but the presence of Denuvo makes me feel uneasy about playing them outside of a Virtual Machine. Can anyone here provide any insight?

I went through the top 100 Linux games on Steam, and recommended you the ones that are good.
Name of Game Would I personally buy it Comment
Portal 2 NO Annoying mainstream shit. Dae le CaEk iS a LyE?!?
Witcher 3 NO Stupid in-your-face popular culture refferences ruining a good game.
Terraria YES 2D Minecraft, too hard achievements
Hotline Miami YES Modern classic with annoyingly interesting music
A HAT in Time DEFINITELY Super mario 64-like game, Slightly ruined by the addition of hard mode that you wont be able to complete. BUT, there is a cool difficulty adjuster. A true gem, unironically
Dishonored YES Classic, but dont play 2 and the shit with the black chick.
Eternal Senia DEFINITELY One can not believe that such an epic game can be made in a shitty rpg maker. Lots of effort and soul went into this. True unironical gem
Garrys mod NO Shit game that has a stupid achievement where you have to afk for 1 year permanently. Hope the guy who came up with that achievement gets cancer as a prace for all the cncer he has caused worldwide
Broforce/Expendabros MAYBE Hard achievements
Mark of the ninja DEFINITELY Nice solid game. Released a remaster recently where all people got it for free who had the original game.
Saints row the third MAYBE Third party EULA, Cornering with a car gives you cancer. But its the best between the shitty 2 and the over the top autistic 4
Nekopara MAYBE Dont let anyone see you have this in your library or it will be a weird conversation
Ribi-rabi MAYBE Has DLC and steam leaderboards, which you cant opt-out of
Ori and The blind Forest YES Epic game, only downside the impossible hard speedrun achievements which dont go well with the casual audience this might attract
Bastion DEFINITELY If you dont have this, buy it, its great
Celeste MAYBE Looks cool, havent played it
Cuphead NO Buy this if you want to get instant cancer and pull your hair out because of luck-based bullshit
Slime Rancher MAYBE To quote a review guy: you put slimes into concentration camps and take their shit and feed it to other slimes
Binding of Isaac NO Good time waster, hard achievements, weird backstory, nice gameplay, overhyped by normies
Bioshock Infinite NO I hate this game. It ruined the bioshock franchise. Its not even bioshock, its bullshit. If you like flashy colors, and getting manipulated by marketing into buying a solid shooter that has nothing to do with bioshock, go for it.
Crypt of the Necrodancer NO Used to be good, but now it has online modes and daily challenges and is litteres with stupid overpriced DLC
Fallout New Vegas YES Best Fallout, fite me
Batman Arkham Asylum MAYBE Has EULA, but nothing fishy in it like data collection, so maybe Ill even buy it. Used to avoid it, but Played it cracked a billion years ago.
Danganrompa MAYBE No idea what this game is about, but people say its good
Shovel Knight NO Epic game, butimpossible achievements ruin everything once again
Hollow knight no Also, an epic game, but the achievements are even more impossible, so screw it and its stupid developers
Dust: elysian tail DEFINITELY Solid one, no drawbacks, slightly weird overdramatic voices, but solid story
Trine 2 DEFINITELY Buy all 3 Trine Games, but dont buy the cancer that is Nine parchments because it will just litter your inventory with shit you cant sell, and oyu gotta be online to get chest loot
Deep space waifu MAYBE Dont let your mom see you play this
Talos Princible NO Feels like a shitty fps sandbox game someone made in unreal engine with a sprinkle of 2deep4me pseudointelectual bs
TY the tasmanian tiger DEFINITELY Toi de Taismainian toigah is a solid retro game like banjo kazooie or super mario 64 that has you throw boomerangs at stuff, and everyone calls you maite
Batman Arkham City MAYBE Same as other batman
Princess Remedy MAYBE Get some of that ol retro vibe in here
Shadow tactics DEFINITELY At first looks and feels like a shitty unity game, which it is, but the story and characters,m and mechanics are so good and fun. It is desperados. And Desperados 3 will be based on this game. Solid,
Recettear YES Nice rpg game where you have a shop and farm stuff to sell
Skyrim YES You will end up as a sneky thief archer anyway
Besiege YES In early access for a hundred years, getting along fine, since I bought it 20 years ago. Luckily, I get frustrated after a level or two, so the development can keep up
Dead Cells YES Ok game, you unlock weapons and run around until you die, and then you unlock new stuff. Nice time waster. Im playing this right now
Transisitr DEFINITELY Even though I feel like every game after Bastion has been worse and worrse, transistor still has super nice gameplay, although the story and voices are 2deep4me, and end up being annoying
VVVVV NO I would love to get this game so much. I love the songs in it. The sogs are epic, and the gameplay is funn . Too bad the shitty devs thought it would be fun to insert a speedrun achievement for the korean speedrunners, so a normal person cant get 100%
Age of Empires 2 NO A classic Le gem of ur childhood. Now with more grainy pixels to burn your eyes, and a facebook button on the main menu. Nice! ;P
Super meat boy NO Hard and DLC, and overhyped just like isaac

Where does Proton install dependencies like DirectX or Visual C++ Redistributable?

Does Steam pack it somewhere in the game file, or somewhere secret inside the steam folder for non-redundancy, or does it pit it somewhere random on your Linux? Can Steam even put stuff on your Linux, and make folders and stuff? I don't wanna litter my rig. If I install a game, I want that redistributable uninstalled when I delete it, you feel me?

So where does it put that stuff?

I want to create an open source game console based on Linux

Ive been dabbling thoughts about this idea for a long time. Both Xbox and PlayStation do not have open source hardware or software, and Windows itself is not an open source OS. I was thinking, just like how the Xbox OS is based off the Windows OS, there could be a game OS which was based off Ubuntu. Im not sure if I could do this because Steam isnt open source but I was thinking of modifying Steam and Ubuntu, and probably creating another background program which allowed the user to fully install and manage games from the Steam dash. The OS would be Steam oriented and would be installed on an open source system. Additionally the OS would be touch screen friendly. I really want to take advantage of the fact we can run some of these more basic games on ARM processors. The idea of an open source game OS which comes on an open source, easy to take apart and upgradeable console, with the ability to also install it on an ARM system is just so cool.

The core aspect of this idea is, I love consoles but I dont like how they can be hard to repair and cant be upgraded. Plus theres no kidding games on consoles. I love to build PCs but on a dedicated game system theres a lot of extra stuff Windows OS and even Ubuntu OS has that a gamer would never end up touching.

I though to myself how cool would it be to have the ability to still mod games, build custom console systems, and treat it like a PC game environment while maintaining a game console theme to the OS. Ive seen the living room version of Steam but essentially its just a PC designed to boot Steam on startup. For modding and other things the user would need to go through the same normal steps as they would on a PC. As my first OS development project I think Im going to try this out!

Initial space base building game development

For the last couple months I have been writing a game that combine some of my favourite concepts. I wanted a Factorio like game with more TIS-100 like programming, more multi-player strategy and longer end game.

The working title is "Junk". It is essentially a base building game set in space. You gather resources by collecting space junk. The junk needs to be separated based on quality and usefulness. The parts can be used to make useful ship components. Each component is made from other parts and can be broken down to the original parts. Because gathering junk is slow with just one ship, you should be able to construct other ships that can be automated to gather the resources for you. Your ships continue harvesting while you are away from the computer as it has all been programmed and automated.

Screenshots

Link to game. You will need SDL2 and SDL2_image libraries.

If people are interested I can walk through the controls and working functionality. Currently the ship that is provided can be controlled using the arrow keys. Press Space and it will try and find a junk ball and go towards it. WASD move you around the ship. Scroll to zoom. Left Ctrl will show the values on the wires. Red/Green dots are wire connection points. Left click to create a new wire, right click to disconnect.

All the development is on Linux and I don't have plans for a Windows version (not having Windows machine to test on). Tell me what you think and if you think it is worth continuing development.

Can someone explain Steam for Linux

What is Steam for Linux? Is it just a Linux version of Steam? Additionally what is proton support and do only games with proton support show up on Steam for Linux or do all games including the unsupported ones show up?

On steams website there is no Proton support icon only a Windows logo and Mac logo. Once Steam is installed on Linux how do I know which games are supported and which are not? Theres literally no information on this anywhere.

and of course screen tearing when it's off, even though vsync and flip presentation is on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, seriously, I'm searching for a game, any game that works on Linux, just now. And I notice that the vaaaaaast majority is useless indie shovelware. And I really can't find anything good to play. Like, unironically, this is the truth. You may not like it, but it's the goddman truth.

If I didn't have to go out in 7 mins, I would legit get the top 100 linux games list sorted by score, and I would legit know to tell you exactly why each of those games sucks, or I already have it. Like, it's annoying. I have to buy myself a 20$ giftcard just so I can buy a 1$ game from a fishy key website, and I 'm searching what to spend my other 19$ on, and I seriously can't find anything. I'm already at the 40th tab. My eyes are getting tired from all he shovelware.

Ugh... there should be some kind of sort that doesn't sort by indie, but AAA.

anyway, just wanted to do arealitycheck on you guys, so you don't get too hyped up.

Any hope of amd quick stream?

Hello everyone. Everyone here is probably familiar with amds top notch support with Mesa, however, they seem to have left out the other features, such as a GUI, relive and now quick stream. Do you think well ever have a chance to get this feature, or should we get comfortable with steam in home streaming.

Low-latency streaming of video and audio over the internet

Hello fellow Linux gamers,

I would like to stream video and audio with low-latency to a friend. We've tried various tools with no satisfactory results:

- Discord only supports audio streaming on the Windows client

- TeamViewer doesn't support presentation mode with the current Linux client

- OBS Studio with nginx/RTMP has a delay of about 4 seconds

- Parsec only supports Ubuntu as a sink, not as a source

I would like to get a latency of less than 1.5 seconds.

Do you know any tools I missed or have you already managed to stream with low-latency?

Do we need an AMDVLK PPA?

I only just discovered the existence of the AMDVLK driver, but it seems to have excellent performance, and a fairly regular release schedule. Is there a PPA to let Ubuntu users easily/automatically update their AMDVLK driver?

If not, I'm happy to look into setting one up, I just wanted to check beforehand.

Content Servers Unavailable?

macOS Mojave 10.14.2

I downloaded both WINE and PlayOnMac in order to try out some Windows games through Steam. My first test subject is Worms Armageddon. Followed tutorials online, everything went smoothly until I tried to install the game itself. Ive been trying to troubleshoot the content servers unavailable issue for about 3 hours now, and Im no closer to a solution than when I started.

Any advice is appreciated, especially if you have experienced this problem recently and have are willing to help me through this problem.

Monster Hunter: World - Your experience

Dear Linux gamers fellows,

Are you playing MH:W? If yes, what is your overall experience?

In my case:

  • Game runs perfectly almost same performance as Windows
  • The joypad is a mess to setup - but this also happens on Windows (you have to setup and register it in Steam and then enable the Steam Overlay?)
  • When playing movies the game crashes because CAPCOM hasn't implemented error checking on a particular API to playback movies - this is a showstopper when ending the game, but can easily worked around with help of friends community (by basically having someone load your savegame, play the movie and save it again to give it back to you - playing this particular movie is a requirement to finish the game)
  • Unfortunately the game sometimes randomly crashes - or better the Nvidia 415 drivers do crash making the game unstable (I wouldn't blame this on the game but on the drivers because only the rendering threads crash and you can see the same on dmesg)

All in all the experience could be perfect if not for the last couple of issues - but nothing transcendental so far. Of course I'll try using 410 and if 4th point gets tackled, the 3rd should be easily workable...

What is your view so far?

Ps. I could be biased because I have approx ~1000 hours on PS4 :-)

Pool of Radiance 2, Ruins of Myth Drannor NOW WORKING under Linux Kubuntu 18.10 WINE 3.0.3-2 (AMD Tonga graphics, AMD 8-core Phenom-2 FX CPU)

So, a few days ago, i got the old buggy D&D 3.x game, Pool of Radiance 2, Ruins of Myth Drannor, fully patched v1.4, working for LINUX under WINE :) I am using the Kubuntu 18.10 LIVE DVD with a few mods... I had to install a WINE32 PREFIX in order to get it installed and fully patched and working, properly. YES I DO own the CDs so this is not "piracy" FYI just a "how to" or seeking help to help others get their own copies working (at least under GNU / Linux)

How can i help others also get it to work? Right now, or thus far, the ONLY problem is that the game crashes to desktop once you go to visit the tree stump to issue the special "Knocking Word" command ... I don't know how to fix that? Other than that, and up till that point, EVERYTHING in the game has been working great! All combat and everything else... just not at the tree stump? :-\

Here was the output from the command line running WINE + the POR executable:

kubuntu@kubuntu:~/por14$ env WINEPREFIX="/home/kubuntu/.wine32" wine-stable C:\\__Games\\POR\\Pool\ II.exe

Battlenet on KDE?

I was looking to install Battlenet through Lutris. But I see on github that there are issues with KDE, is this still the case?

https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/Game:-Blizzard-App

The installer window does not show up, installation is stuck Usually it's caused by missing wine dependencies, but sometimes it's a result of an unknown bug in KDE. There are no known workarounds to this, so the only solution is to use another DE.

How can I improve my performance in Guild Wars 2?

So I bought Guild Wars 2 on black friday, and finally got around to installing it yesterday. Performance is pretty poor, however. I started out with around 20fps. After some googling, I got about 40fps, which is not too bad. It isn't entirely stable though, so I wanted to ask if anyone here is playing GW2, and how I can optimize performance as much as possible.

What helped for me was enabling CSMT, and setting the -dx9single argument in Lutris. I have heard about fancy methods of converting DirectX 9 to Vulkan though, which sounds awesome in practice. Has anyone here tried something like this? What other tweaks can be used?

I played the free version of this game a lot on the same rig when I was using Windows a year and a half ago. Performance was excellent, but I do of course know that there is some performance loss when playing in WINE.

Can't install Battle.net with Lutris as part of the Overwatch install

Hey guys! I hope you can help me, as I've been going through dozens of tutorials, guides, forums and articles, but to no avail. No matter what I try, I still end up getting the "Game executable not found" error, even though my drive is ext4.

I'm trying to install Overwatch through Lutris, have met all the other criteria and dependencies, but as it needs to install Battle.net, it freezes at about 40%, saying to "Try again later", although I'm sure it's an issue on my end.

Here are a few screenshots of the errors I took, if you guys could spare a few minutes to throw an eye on them, maybe you know the solution! I'd appreciate it greatly, and thank you so much in advance!

Bejeweled 3 was whitelisted on Proton. Can you guys get me a key from one of those fishy key sites?

Hey guys, I really wanna play Bejeweled 3, but I live in a village without a bank, and I don't have credit cards and stuff because of muh privacy, and I really want to play this game. (I dunno why). So I thought, maybe you guys can feel the christmas spirit before mods remove this, and make my day, as much as I make yours with my shitty memes. If you are a trader or whatever, I have Amnesia Collection, and Shadowrun Returns: deluxe keys to compensate, you which cummulatively are worth more, so I dunno. Maybe we can share some Linux love and stuff like that I dunno. Thanks!

War Thunder stability/performance issues in both Native and Wine... A letter to Gaijin.

Gaijin, we need to talk.

Since patch 1.77, the performance of the OpenGL 3.0 version of the Native Linux client is abysmal. Only hitting 20fps in heavy battles on well speced machines. Not to mention there's a black ground textures issue with the latest Nvidia drivers using OpenGL that has seen no traction towards a bugfix.

Then there's Vulkan. You were kind enough to talk to GamingOnLinux about your Vulkan plans, but because it was never meant to be public, bug reports for Vulkan went ignored and there have been no bugfixes on that front, even though it performs the best when it works... (not to mention the issue with black screening certain compositors)

So some of us were then forced to Wine + DXVK. With the Transform Feedback enabled Wine versions and appropriate display drivers, suddenly it was a stable experience again... until this past week...

1.83.1.x introduced a crash on login bug that is reproducible when trying to use DirectX 11 as the renderer, and if you're able to get into the game, the Tank Battle benchmark now crashes 100% of the time. Tested with both DXVK 0.93 and 0.94, and WINEDLLOVERRIDES="d3d11,dxgi=b" and that made no difference, ruling out DXVK as the cause. In fact it was worse on wined3d11, crashing differently on login.

War Thunder has so many issues right now through the various ways of playing it that it's basically almost unplayable if you're talking rock solid stability and performance. Something needs to be done about this so that it doesn't go stale in the back of someone's mind, because of a low market share. You were proud to bring a Linux client and were ambitious on your Vulkan plans, where's the fruits of that labor? Right now these issues are extremely frustrating compared to the Windows and Mac experiences.

Now with Proton on Steam the default game is running fine and all but installing Modorganizer?

I download wine and installed modorganizer the program runs fine but doesn't realize steam is running (obviously). How do I integrate Proton with wine?

can I sort of run windows program with Proton?

Dual Boot Editing

Hey, I am just about to get into using Linux for gaming and other tasks.

Since Windows is still going to be my primary OS, I was wondering if I can edit the dual boot, for instance when holding F1 on boot I boot into Mint and when I don't do anything, I boot into windows.

Though Isn't a big deal, I would just love to do this.

Thank You for any Help you may contribute

Can someone help with AMDGPU-Pro Driver installation? Ubuntu MATE 18.04.1

I installed the AMDGPU-Pro driver (I think) but I dont think it is being used correctly.

I downloaded the 18.30 package and followed the directions
sudo tar -xJvf
cd into the file I extracted then ran:
sudo ./amdgpu-pro-install -y

after I rebooted I ran sudo lshw -c video
output:

I ran glxinfo | grep OpenGL version and got this:

I ran dpkg -l amdgpu-pro and got this output:

So is the driver installed correctly? I dont know because lshw -c video shows the drivers are still amdgpu and the dpkg -l command shows the pro-18.30 and it looks like there was an error or reinstall required? I dont know how to read the output

Thank you for your time.

Graveyard Keeper Graphical Error? (LINUX NOOB)

Hello Everyone,

I own an Acer R11 Chromebook, and I only know enough about Linux to launch Linux capable games through Steam... So, be chill with me if I don't use all the right jargon or haven't provided enough of the right information.

Graveyard Keeper ran just fine for me when it was released a few months ago. I haven't played in a while, but I booted it up today, and got a messy graphical error. Here's a sample:

[Fedora 28] Unable to get esync to work

I'm on Fedora 28, (Linux desky 4.19.7-200.fc28.x86_64) trying to get esync to work via Lutris. I've followed the guide from Lutris on how to setup esync for a systemd system. The problem is that ulimit -Hn doesn't report this updated value. I've rebooted multiple times to no avail. Because of this, when I select esync in Lutris, I'm told my limits are incorrect.

$ cat /etc/systemd/system.conf | grep NOFILE

DefaultLimitNOFILE=1048576

$ cat /etc/systemd/user.conf | grep NOFILE

DefaultLimitNOFILE=1048576

$ ulimit -Hn

Any idea how to fix this?

War Thunder via Wine crashes on login/loading certain maps (100% crashes loading Tank Battle benchmark)

This was not an issue on patch 1.83.0.x but as soon as the game updated to 1.83.1.x, logging in for the first time can crash the game. Tested on both Tkg and vanilla Wine Staging 3.21 and made sure it was not a issue with Esync or DXVK.

There's an active thread on the issue here: https://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/435530-183113-freezes-on-wine-while-trying-to-log-in/

The native client regressed to OpenGL 3 which tanks performance heavily. The Vulkan renderer is not supposed to be public yet, and suffers crashes that aren't addressed, so Wine + DXVK (as of patch 1.83.0.x) was the best way to play the game on Linux.

If you're having trouble, it's not just you.

So, does Steam automatically add approved Proton games to my Linux +SteamOS library filter list?

Hey guys!

I was just browsing my pathetic Linux-compliant library of Steam games (literally cut my games by 70%), after switching to Linux, and I realized that Dark Souls 3 isn't a Linux game, but it is on the "approved" list for Proton.

Does that mean that games which the Proton project deems playable enough to pass, will start appearing randomly on my list? Is there a way to test games and report back whether they work, or suggest which games they should work on? Is the goal to port the whole steam library, or only popular games?

Because I have some old games like Vice city, and they do run, which is great, but in some kind of safety mode with 640x480 that you can't change.

Anyway, I don't know what to play. I lost, like all my will for gaming after changing to Linux. I play Dead Cells for like 10 mins per day and that's it. Wanted to try Saints Row 2 (which is legit for linux), but it lagged and sucked. Wish they didn't have that ridiculous drift mechanic, and would make more realistic physics on at least Vice city levels, and then it would be a totally enjoyable sandbox experience. I have mark of the ninja remastered to get all my achievements again, but I'm not in the mood. I'm in the mood for some driving. Project cars is too heavy. Monster hunter world will definitely work - not. . I think I'll try to install dirt 3 for driving fun, and okami for other fun, and see if they work..

Aye, bros, We'll be seeing each other when I inevitably come back to ask you how the hell you change proton and wine settings, but until then... let's play bejewelled 3, I dunno, I saw it on the list of approved games. Never bought "grampa games", but seems I'll be getting into that now... ;P

Doom stopped running in full screen

Hi, so today I wanted to play Doom (2016) again using Steam and Proton. It worked before flawlessly, so I did not expect much hassle.

However, I found it would not launch into full screen any more, but only into a borderless window that is much too small to even fit the menu.

Screenshot

When I try to continue the game regardless, I get stuck at this screen.

I didn't do much expect regularly updating Steam and Ubuntu.

Right now I'm running Proton 3.16-4 through Steam. I've set +r_renderapi 1 to run the game in Vulkan mode.

No sound with Lutris

My distro is Artix Linux (runit, LXQT). I'm only using ALSA and pulseaudio is not installed.

Whenever I try to launch a game through Lutris it doesn't play any sound. However when I use the distro wine package without Lutris, sound works without any issues. How could that be? The wine version I'm using is tkg-nopulse-3.21. I've also forced ALSA output through winecfg though unfortunately it didn't change a thing.

Is Ryzen APU 2000 series now stable on Ubuntu 18.10 ?

I'm still not sure what to choose between Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G but I like to know how stable they are in gaming on Ubuntu 18.10 or on Ubuntu-based distros with Linux kernel 4.18.

Has anyone here tested them on Windows games through Steam Play 2.0 ?

The build will use InWin Chopin so gaming performance will be limited to the processor's iGPU.

Thanks.

KKND remake 0.10 released !

Hi guys !

So yesterday the OpenRA-based KKND remake, issued it's first public release ! It's open source and available for download for linux/mac/windows on their website :

https://www.kknd-game.com

This is a multiplayer release, only skirmish and no missions for now.

Works quite well, there is some bugs (like destroying a building in a middle of a research is crashing the game) and the AI is unfinished yet (can't build derricks and workaround by having infinite ressources, meaning you can't win against in a 1vs1 setting), but besides that it is working well.

It's aways nice to see old game like this one ressurected by open source engines. Heard that red alert 2 and tiberian sun are following this path. This is exciting ! Now if somebody will also remake dark colony, fallen heaven and war wind, it will be absolutely perfect ! :)

Enjoy !

Integrating Wine, DXVK, and VKD3D into a Linux distro.

I apologize if the title sounds stupid, I'm not a programmer and I do not have a deep understanding of how the Linux kernel works.

From a PC gamer's perspective, having a Proton-like functionality built-in with the Linux distro would be great for running DRM-free Windows games on Linux. Just double-click the game's .exe file and the Linux distro would automatically detect you are trying to run a Windows program then would do the necessary stuff to make the game run like it's a native Linux game.

I do not hate Steam and I'm actually enjoying playing Windows games on Linux through Steam Play 2.0 but I also want to play DRM-free Windows games on Linux without hassle.

If what I ask is possible, why are major Linux distros not doing it?

Thanks.

My laptop's NVIDIA graphics card is enabled and selected but some games do not use it

I'm running Ubuntu 18. I've made sure to install my graphics card correctly, and if I type in the command 'prime-select query' it says I'm using my nvidia graphics card and not my integrated intel one. If I go to settings and check details, it says that it's using my nvidia graphics card. In nvidia settings it is selected to be used. So, it should be using this graphics card.

However, certain games do not seem to use it or have it as an option. For instance, in Civilization 6, it has a setting to pick which GPU to use but my nvidia gpu isn't even an option. However in other games my graphics card will be used, so it seems that it is at least working some of the time?

Is there something I might be missing or something I should try?

GTA V runs GREAT. Loving this so much

I'm running the social club version in Kubuntu 18.04. My specs are:

AMD FX 6350 cpu R9 390x video card

with Mesa 18.3.0 drivers

Whatever version of Vulkan that comes with this ppa https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/pkppa


Running the game in Lutris, I'm using 0.94 DXVK, esync-staging-pba-3.18-x86_64

Issues

I was having issues with it starting and it was solved by deleting the .part files in the GTA install directory.

I also had issues with a zlib error when I tried to start single player. Fixed by adding -verify to the start parameters in Lutris for the game (right click game in Lutris and go to configure)

Last issue I had was mouse movement being limited in-game. Solved by changing setting in-game, for mouse movement, to "windows".

 

Did the first couple missions in-game with some high speed driving and my frames were great, no stutters or anything. I completely forgot I was playing on Linux. So excited

Valve silently removed the option to not update games - now they must be updated to play

Yet another reason to use alternatives such as itch.io and GOG, this requirement means you have to accept an update and get no say in the matter. For example, this means you have to accept any change a dev pushes, or the update may break your mods and you're not able to continue playing on an older version until those mods are updated for the newer one.

Steam already takes away various freedoms of yours, and this is yet another. It's better to support developers who give us Linux support in return on platforms which care about our freedom more than Valve does.

Buying the cheapest/oldest Vulkan-supporting card

I'm looking to upgrade my graphics card just a tiny bit, from my current R9 270X maybe to an R9 290X, which I know is supported by AMDGPU-PRO, and thus supports Vulkan. I want to do this so I can run compatible games with Proton/DXVK on Linux. I don't overly care about performance, I just want access to Windows games that I can't play now. Is this a bad idea? Or will newer cards support a newer version of Vulkan that might be better in some way?

Who uses AMDVLK and where is it going?

Hello /r/linux_gaming

My understanding is that:

  1. AMD develops AMDGPU - a kernel module
  2. AMD does not contribute to Mesa (according to this)
  3. AMD did not develop RADV, Mesa's AMD GPU drivers which uses AMDGPU.
  4. AMD developed AMDVLK, an open source driver that competes with MESA's RADV

Now, what is the deal with AMDVLK? Is is packaged anywhere? Who uses it, and how does one install it? It is never going to make it to Mesa, is it?

Its great that AMD contributes to an open source driver, but my understanding is that nobody uses it?

Has anyone tried Mixed Reality kits on Linux?

There's been a lot of MR kits marked as "windows MR compatible" but still can't get a clear info about the difference between those kits (as in ace's , dell's, lenovo's) and an HTC or Oculus.

Can those be used with steam on linux? The price difference is quite huge here in Argentina.

How to deal with older Steam games that use shifty software such as GameSpy for matchmaking?

Hey guys!

I just installed Saints row 2 on steam, and when you go into the game, there is a giant GameSpy logo. I don't want to have any online features, and let alone some extra program installed. And since Linux isn't good with blocking programs, how can I protect myself from dangers of old programs or unwanted online features?

Also, how can I check whether the game installed that fishy program somewhere or not? Can steam do this on Linux? I know some games on Windows install extra programs for stuff like physics and whatnot.

Please help!

Clarify something about nvidia-xrun

Disclaimer: I am very new to Linux, so be patient with me please.

Right, let's start off by listing my system. I am using Acer Helios 300 with Arch and using i3-gaps and KDE as my WM and DE respectively.

So, I've read the nvidia-xrun on Arch Wiki, and the guide in here. My question is that if I were to open 2 tty, 1st one uses Intel card, 2nd one uses Nvidia card, is it possible that i have to turn off the 2nd tty (is there even a way to turn off?) to only use Intel card or I can just switch between tty to only utilize one of them? Thanks in advance.

Everytime Steam restarts, a bunch of games have o byte downloads queued.

And most times when I "update" them, they immediately say "ready to play". Then if I restart steam, those same games will be queued for downloads.

Controller problems

Hi everybody, I'm having problems with Portal games and my Xbox 360 wired controller.

When I use xpad as driver, buttons are very misconfigured (for example, LT is Start, I cannot look up etc.). And when I use xboxdrv, vibrations doesn't work. This applies only for Portal games.

Any ideas?

Linux Programmer needs help with unlocking PS3 Hardware acceleration

Hello, first off I'd like to point out that this is in no way my work, I was just asked by the person who is doing this, to post it here for them. He programmer is in need of skilled and knowledgeable programmers who have a solid foundation for Linux and how it operates, people who are also familiar with the architecture of the PS3 would also be nice to have. I know this isn't the most ideal place to post this, but it is the most frequented Linux sub with active people, that isn't just a big number of subscribers who don't contribute.

He's looking for people to give his current work to and help contribute to the project from their homes. He hasn't gone open source yet, and mainly does all this on his down time.

Here is the progress so far http://www.psx-place.com/threads/6x-update-dec-08-hw-acceleration-rsx-project-update-by-renerebe.21370/

Here is his latest video, of him working on his downtime, and coding while on a plane (the guy is dedicated) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhsLDAe3ddM&lc=z23wc3vpmre1ibc5b04t1aokghwidiz4cmj5ohestenlbk0h00410.1544604344291018

Moun&amp;Blade-like Freeman: Guerilla Warfare is likely getting Linux-Support after release

The game currently runs fine using Wine and DXVK (it is only available via Steam but is not using Steam DRM. Doesn't start with Steam Play). But I asked them via mail if they have a Linux version in the works.

Here's their answer:

Hello :) We are planing to port the game to Linux after release. But still not sure yet. Best regards, Tina, KK Game Studio

Updated Origin with the updater script, but it still thinks it's outdated

So I installed Origin through Lutris, and updated it using the script that came bundled with it. Didn't work.

I tried using the WINEPREFIX method (I downloaded another copy). It didn't work, either.

FYI, I didn't update it using Origin at all.

Discord developer makes a verbal commitment to future Discord Store Linux support!

This is great news. I thought this comment from /u/vishnevsky was worth sharing with you all!

https://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/a65z5o/in_2019_the_discord_store_will_allow_all/ebseohn/

Good news! Everything we built for the store actually works great on macOS and Linux. A lot of our devs use those platforms internally. We just wanted to focus on releasing Windows first to make sure everything works, and to be honest thats where most of our users are. We will definitely bring things to all platforms!

For anyone who hasn't heard, this comment is accompanied by the news that Discord is going to be opening up their platform for self-publishing, with a very competitive and developer-friendly 90:10 revenue split. If they follow through on their verbal commitment to supporting Linux in the near future, this is potentially a very good thing.

Need Help with Going Online on Playonmac

Hey there,

So yeah, question is in the title. My Steam can't go online on Playonmac, and I've tried a few things. One tip from browsing was to use "-no-cef-sandbox", though that didn't work. Next I tried to set my Wine version back, though I didn't really know what to expect there.

I can login and install games, but the store along with profile page viewing is inaccessible and I'd like to see whether my friends are on.

Thanks for any help.

Back to AMD graphics question on Kernel and other utilities

Well guess who is back?

You all here were pretty helpful when it came to nvidia cards. Thank you to anyone who suggested a fix for me. Sadly the 1070ti didnt work out for me due to game-specific issues. So I sold it again and bought a new vega (a sapphire vega56 pulse)

So a few questions for you here once again. Since I had a RX480 so I didnt really cared what driver I used or which kernel. First my system specs:

OS: Arch Linux with kernel 4.19.8

driver: open-source mesa-git (latest)

CPU: Ryzen 1700 (not that it would matter)

GPU: Sapphire Vega56 Pulse

So my questions then:

- I read on phoronix that the kernels 4.20 and 4.21 can improve performance on vega. So I looked up in the arch wiki to find that the linux-git package I used earlier is out of date and only version 4.18. So I started looking for alternative kernel from and found a few in the versions 4.20 and 4.21. Now I am unsure which could benefit me.
In the AUR I first found linux-mainline (4.20) and three kernels which seem to have some optimization for amd: linux-amd-staging-drm-next-git (4.20) , linux-amd-git (4.21) and linux-amd-wip-git (4.21). Do you have some experience with with either of those kernels? Or is it not worth it to update from 4.19?

- are there any tools or programs I should be aware of? I know vegas run best when undervolted. So I went on to undervolt it, but well the terminal-method dont went well for me, its not really intuitive, is there any tool available to control voltage and fan-speed for example? Are there tools you can recommend me?

- do you maybe have any tips for gaming on vega in general? Is there something I should be aware of?

Again thank you to everyone willing to help me. If this post isnt really right in this sub please let me know, where to post it. Since I have some kernel related questions too.

Is it possible to play games like Undertale, which are available on Steam for Linux, for free? I mean, how do I use the torrented version in ubuntu, preferably without Wine(Since I've heard it causes FPS drops?)

My PC is pretty low specced (i3 7100u, 8gb ram, Intel 620HD), that's why I'd like a way to play natively without Wine

Increase poor performance on Linux while Gaming

Hi,

I am having the following issue. Some games, especially X-Plane 11, seem to bring really bad performance. For example I am getting around 10 to 15 fps. Looking at the ingame frame rate, I can see that the GPU is almost idle, which adds up to the Nvidia settings, where it also seems to be cool. However, CPU times are shows fluctuating between 0.0800 and 0.1000 hence causing the drop of frames. In the menu I can see, that only 750 MB VRAM are used of the 4 GB. So this is likely not an issue as well.

I have checked HTOP with XP running and I see that about 50% of the memory is being used.. between 7 - 8 GB out of my 16. Which seems to be fine. CPU Load however is fluctuating... It is around 60 to 70% CPU usage, but it happens to go up to 90 or even 100%, which is when XP or other games would freeze and frames would drop to 1 or 2 fps before slowly going back up again.

I have checked if I am actually using the Nvidia drivers. I do. I use 415. I have also changed my GPU in Nvidia settings to performance mode and I have set my CPU to performance more from within Mint 19, to have it run at full power. None of these having any effect. I have also tried to reduce openGL Quality in Nvidia setting to no avail. I would guess, that this is because of the issue being the CPU and not the GPU.

I have an average CPU, an A8 with 4 x 3 Ghz processors, 16GB of RAM and 4 GB VRAM (GTX 1050-Ti). So on medium CPU Settings (XP Settings split between GPU and CPU settings) it should be working fine. In addition, I have run XP for testing on Windows 10 on the same machine. XP11 and Process Lasso (or any other game with process lasso) would give me 25 to 35 fps at the same airport, same aircraft, where with Linux Mint I am just getting 15 to 19 fps. So something seems to be really wrong here.

I wonder if there is anything I missed? Anything else I can try? Even the XP Devs say that Linux should bring better performance with XP11 than Windows and it is the same for many other games as well. Yet, it appears that for me the opposite is the case.

Is Doom 2016 REALLY compatible with Steam Play

Hello there, I'm fairly new to attempting to game on linux. I recently switched over since hackentoshing for mojave is not currently compatible with nvidia and I've decided to stay on linux for steam play. Steam play sounds AMAZING and I've gotten Cuphead and Call of Duty world at war working out of the box. However, I've tried everything with Doom 2016 even +r_renderAPI 1 for Vulkan and +r_renderAPI 0 for OpenGL and nothing works. OpenGL sometimes works but plays terribly and breaks when I try to enable Vulkan in the game menu and restart. My build is fairly decent: 6600k/Gtx 1060 and everything plays great under windows. Is there anything else I can try to get Doom 2016 to work under linux with steam play?

Can anyone recommend a good tutorial on how to use Lutris?

I've been trying to get some Windows games working with little success (incredibly low tech proficiency). Initially I was trying to use PoL, but was having little success with manual installation.

However I gandered over to Lutris and it turns out that they do have several of the games I'm interested in, in addition the version of the game I already have.

So I'm hoping to have greater success with Lutris.

I guess one thing I need help with is when I first heard of Lutris I was turned off by the thought of needing to create an account. However I seem to recall someone mentioning in passing that this wasn't necessary.

So to clarify: I'm looking for a guide to use Lutris's installer setup without creating an online account
