What's the best place buy DRM-free Linux games? I heard some of the Humble Bundle ones have trouble installing.

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 4 hours 25 min ago

I know about GOG as well, but I'm not sure if there are any problems with it or not. I've been mainly a Steam user up until now.

I know both lack clients unlike Steam. Could be seen as a plus.. depending how you look at it. No proprietary client required. Buuut, I'm unsure how easy games are to install and maintain (update, patch, etc) without one.

I'll be honest, I really miss World of Warcraft

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 5 hours 38 min ago

I wish Blizzard, the company that makes World of Warcraft, would release a linux client. I could dual boot Windows I suppose, but I switched to Linux on principle... just venting.

Wine and DirectX11

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 6 hours 17 min ago

So I was playing wow on my desktop and I get from around 5-17 fps (20 tops) in-game with the default wow API (DirectX11). If I change to directx9 the game runs at solid 60-70fps. Wine 3.0 released was released in January with DirectX11 support yet the fps are lower. Is this a game issue, or an issue on wine side (improvements need to be done)?

I'm trying to find an answer mostly because blizzard will kill support for directx9 and support only 11 and metal (I think they already killed OpenGL support). The gpu I'm using is an Nvidia 1050 ti with proprietary driver

Best Windows Themed Linux Distro For Gaming

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 9 hours 8 min ago

My question is simple, what's the best Linux Distro that resembles Windows(or has a really nice design not one of the old or ugly ones I've seen) and is focused on playing Windows games with Wine, I'd like to hear your suggestions because I am new to Linux Gaming and I am thinking of switching from Windows.

Mount & Blade: Warband Linux Issues

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 17 Jun 2018 - 11:01pm

Recently tried M&B:W on Linux and ran into some issues. I am not able to bring up the Configuration/Settings window, meaning I can't change modules or make changes to my graphic settings. I have tried this with both the GOG and Steam versions and have the same issues on both. If I try to launch the mbw_config_linux executable from the terminal I get:

"/home/jupiter/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/MountBlade Warband/mbw_config_linux: error while loading shared libraries: libfontconfig.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64"

Running "ldd mbw_config_linux" in terminal also shows a few missing libraries too (libfontconfig.so.1, libaudio.so.2, libglib-2.0.so.0, libpng12.so.0, libfreetype.so.6, libgobject-2.0.so.0, libSM.so.6, libICE.so.6, libXi.so.6, libXrender.so.1, libglib-2.0.so.0) if that matters at all.

So I just installed Fedora and got steam up, but hidpi ruins it :/

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 17 Jun 2018 - 10:24pm

After 8 long hours i even got NVIDIA drivers up and running (had problem with black logon screen, and the reason was not clear)...

So now i got steam up and even installed 2 games (portal 2 and Undertale).

Undertale starts in some teeny tiny window-mode, how do i tell Steam to play in... full screen?

Portal actually started in large, but in 4:3 640x480 size. but through the games config i could get the right settings to make it look good...

And i read that "big picture" would be good for Linux, so i started it, and i got some small rectangle in the left corner (rest was black) .. big picture my ass ;) . So, any way to fix that? But over in all, im impressed it actually worked to start games on Linux xD

[Lutris] HotS and DXVK

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 17 Jun 2018 - 8:23pm

Hi everyone,
I'm trying to install HotS with Lutris and I'm a little confuse when I read:

"If you are going to use DXVK: Enable DXVK, set version:0.53."

How do I do that exactly?
Also how do I set "Then set PBA_DISABLE=1"?

Thanks for the help!

State of Path of Exile and DXVK?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 17 Jun 2018 - 10:45am

I'm currently using KDE neon, lutris and a GTX 1070 with latest PPA drivers.

I have DXVK v.52 and the ge patched wine selected.

I am getting honestly pretty great performance, but there is a lot of hitching and microstutter with my 100hz display.

Frames spike between 80 and 120 multiple times per second, so I think there might be some setting I can do somewhere to smooth it out.

In 60hz mode everything is awesome.

Is there a better way to run Poe in Linux with DXVK? Different wine or some environment variables, etc?
