Other News about gaming on Linux
I made a very nice post asking about EAC and when they will be adding a working version for Proton/Wine they decided to delete it after a few hours and they seem to be doing the same to many Steam forum posts. Checkout my tweet about it. It’s something they can’t delete. Please retweet!/u/Dax0628
i have recently switched over to linux (from windows)
and so far i have loved it but when i opened up minecraft some of the audio sounded muffled
i found out later this was due to hrtf
but i didnt like it so i looked into finding a way to disable it
i found a few guides (on how to enable it)
and i tried using them but changing hrtf to off instead of on
but none of those worked
does anyone know how to disable it?submitted by /u/Kiing_Watermelon
Hello. I've read some articles, posts and documentation on running games on linux. Some weeks ago i bought Wd2 from ubisoft, i installed the uplay and uconnect and ran it through Lutris and wine but with no luck. On proton website it shows gold, but its through proton. Could there be a way of running the game straight or troigh runners? everytime i run wd2 it crashes with error.submitted by /u/_Emalo
Ok Hi so i am modding Fallout 4 GOTY from linux and it is working well enough. However my whole plan is to mod the game on my pc and then play with contoller via steam link on TV. But for that to work i need to run the game through steam.
The problem is that when i mod the game using Mod Organizer 2 on linux, the game thinks it is running on steam. It will even say on the steam library that Fallout 4 is running at the moment. And when i start up the game through the mod manager, it works like it should.
However, if i try to run the game through steam itself, so this means i have to close the mod manager and then run the game itself, it will not show any of the mods. The load order is totally empty when i do that through steam.
Anyone has any ideas? I really wanne play this game modded on my big screen TV with controller. And i need steam link for that.
Edit: i actually found out that steam link (that i have as an app on my tv) actuallly mirrors my entire pc screen. So i can just run fallout through MO2. However the controller does not seem to work. it does on the pc, but i think my tv needs the input for controller or start the game through steam.submitted by /u/Anakhsunamon

I'm saving for one of the top-tier 120/144Hz 4K monitors — Linux doesn't currently support HDR in the first place and all gaming-focused models (the professional ones cost thousands and in practice appear all be limited to 60Hz) generally at best support DisplayHDR 600, which is still considered as questionable.
Can it be guaranteed that when the OS doesn't support HDR no such feature will ever be enabled in the monitor?submitted by /u/metsasusi

I'm playing BioShock (first one, not remastered version) on Steam. Used to work well a couple days ago with Proton 6.3-6. Yesterday it didn't start, so i forced compatibility to Proton version to 5.13-6 and it ran well, i was just asked to reinstall DirectX. Now i've gotten the same problem but it doesnt work with either Experimental, 6.18-GE-2 nor 5.13-6, and sometimes it tells me to install DirectX again.
I have added the command "PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 PROTON_NO_FSYNC=1 %command% -nointro" suggested in ProtonDB's BioShock page. Same results.
With experimental it just says "running" in steam and then it closes itself. With other versions I at least get the small "BioShock" rectangle pop-up and then a black window that says the program isn't responding, and proceeds to close itself again.
Should I install the remastered version? Could it be because of a sysyem update (and how would i fix that)?
Using Pop!_OS 21.04.
Idk if i need to add more specs if it ran well before.
It's hard to find answers upon googling since all i find is about Remastered version and Infinite. If you have a link i can reffer to, please do attach it
Edit: seems to run with command "PROTON_NO_D3D11=1 PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command% -nointro" along with Proton Experimental. Still would like to know wtf is going on lol.submitted by /u/Emm-uh
So I have been a Linux user for more than 20 years, haven't used windows since. Been mainly a retro gamer/console gamer in that time. I was thinking about it and the last graphics card I bought was for Doom 3, so 16 years!?!
I've only been playing games that can run on APUs but now I want to try something more powerful.
The card I won (a chance to pay retail prices for. . .) is a GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3090 VISION OC 24GB Video Card, GV-N3090VISION OC-24GD, so plenty to handle any PC game. What is a game on Linux to test it out on?submitted by /u/second_exodous
Hey guys, I heard about the easy Anti Cheat announcement and I am amazed. I can finally switch to Linux full time. One question though, are there any games yet that have added the SDK to there game?submitted by /u/littletiger11
If you prefer GOG to buy your games from you can now pick up the absolute gem that is Dicey Dungeons.
A deck-builder with a difference, as you're not just going through dungeons collecting cards to use during battles, you're also rolling dice to activate these various cards. Some only work with even numbers, some odd numbers and some need specific numbers - there's a lot of varied combinations to play through thanks to this system.

- Six wildly different playable classes: Warrior, Thief, Robot, Jester, Inventor and Witch.
- Dozens of enemies, ranging from Vacuum Cleaners that want to suck your blood, to creatures from Irish mythology, to suave malevolent snowmen.
- A catchy, upbeat and energetic soundtrack by Chipzel (previously, the musician from Super Hexagon).
- Beautiful and adorable artwork by Marlowe Dobbe.
- Procedurally generated for endless play-throughs.
You absolutely should check out some of the mods that have been made for it too, some of them are absolutely huge. For example there's The Grab Bag adding in 200 new bits of equipment or MegaQuest which adds 6 whole new episodes to play through.GamingOnLinux.com taken from the RSS feed.
The issue tracker has more questions than answers, so you bet when the Steam Deck launches, Just Cause 2 will be unplayable.
However, if you install Lutris and use Wine Steam, it does work...
Do not condone piracy by asking people to replace EXEs. For games on both Steam and GOG, if you have the GOG copy and Steam copy of a game, you can replace the GOG EXE into your Steam folder. That's fine.submitted by /u/FurryJackman
