Low FPS on deep rock galactic

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 11:39pm

I normally play on my archlinux system using my 1060 6gb, everything on low, fps never goes down 160 fps, but i recently bought a rx 580 8gb for my wife, that uses arch too and has the same CPU as me, but for some reason her game goes down to 70-80 fps, and the CPU usage never passes 20-30% and the GPU cant pass 40% use, you guys have this issue on deep rock using amd too?

Counter-Strike 2, no audio

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 11:39pm

CS2 just replaced CSGO. It runs great out the box (not requiring the libtcmalloc fix I'll add) but the issue is there's no sound anywhere. Trying all the options available under audio devices in the game don't work. Anyone else experiencing this? (6650xt/Ryzen 5 5600x/Arch/GNOME Wayland/Pipewire)

Genshin Impact 4.1 Status

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 11:36pm

It is with a heavy heart that I must report Genshin Impact still 4.1 works fine on Proton (desktop Linux and Steam Deck) for the time being. Still under observation - the usual grace period is two business weeks, after which we should be sure about whether 4.1 will work for the usual 6 weeks.

heavy heart you son of a----

Our poor wallets are crying here :P

Hello everyone,

I'm having trouble with Crab Champions not loading properly. I've already updated my drivers, checked ProtonDB, reinstalled the game, and verified game files, but nothing seems to be working.

If anyone has any suggestions or solutions, I would greatly appreciate your help.

CS2 Linux binary not released yet.

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 10:50pm

After receiving a 6GB update, this error is given after attempting to launch

Looks like they haven't properly released the Linux binary for CS2 yet.

UPDATE: Binary released but audio is not working, at least not for me on Fedora 38

Starfield with SFSE and mods

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 10:00pm

For those that are playing Starfield with SFSE and mods (Mod manager), How?

So far I have installed all mods manually as I have no idea how to get Mod Manager or Vortex working with Starfield. (I have both working with Fallout 4 in Bottles)

launching vanilla Starfield from Steam works fine.

I've tried the method, rename SFSE - Starfield.exe and launching from Steam. SFSE and Starfield both run but crash when loading in or starting a new game.

I've tried adding SFSE as a non Steam game. This worked fine up until the latest update and now it just crashes before I even get to the game screen.

I've tried Steam tinker launch but have no idea how to use it. Ive tried to install Mod Manager with it and nothing seems to happen.

I've seen posts of people using these programs and SFSE just fine on Linux I'd like some advice on how.

CS2 Linux support?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 8:44pm

Counter Strike: Global Offensive had a very nice native Linux version. Counter Strike 2 has been in beta for several months, but has not supported Linux yet. Does anyone know the status on a Linux native CS2 version - or even a version that is going to be runnable via Proton? It looks likely that CS2 will release today...

L4D2 (Native linux build) has a diagonal screen tear line across the screen on vulkan?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 7:32pm

Os: Linux Mint 21.1 Cpu: Intel Core i7 7500U @ 2.40hz × 2 Gpu: Nvidia Geforce 940mx When i try to run l4d2 with the -vulkan argument on, there is a diagonal screen tearing line whenever the camera is moving a lot (very noticable on campaign openings and when shaking the camera) across the screen that is really annoying, even with vsync triple buffer on, any ideas on how to fix?

How would i disable my nVidia GPU for a specific game on an optimus laptop so i could use my amd iGPU?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 7:29pm

I've got a laptop running fedora gnome with an nvidia card. I want to disable the nvidia gpu for some less demanding games to preserve battery. How can i do this? Is there a proton command to use the amd igpu only?

Laptop: Acer Nitro 5 AN515-45

CPU: Ryzen 5 5600h

OS: Fedora 38

kernel Linux 6.4.15-200.fc38.x86_64

dGPU: RTX 3060 laptop gpu (this uses optimus meaning it can only post to the hdmi port)

iGPU: AMD Renoir

Should I upgrade from an Nvidia GPU to an AMD?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 5:46pm

Ok I have a EVGA 3070 Ti FTW 3

The card has been awesome! However I have a deal lined up where I can sell this card and essentially buy a brand new power color 6800 XT Red Dragon for almost the same cost. In my brain I think "Free Upgrade" or "Upgrade for only $50"

If I was on Windows I wouldn't care enough as I love team green cards but I miss being able to just use Linux with one less thing to worry about when gaming and how sometimes the NVidia drivers break games and you need to roll back. Plus the 6800xt is a good amount better.

Should I make the change? Why or why not? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Fallout 4 won't launch

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 5:04pm

So as the title says for some reason when i try to launch fallout 4 from steam it act for a moment like it's launching but then it just shuts down without showing me a window and then the button to start the game comes back.

I can't really think why this happens, i've tried re-installing the game and using proton version 6.3 to no avail and im out of ideas so im hoping someone here has an idea for me.

Distant Worlds 2 now seems to work on linux

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 5:00pm

As subject - many of us had been waiting on this for quite a while.

Use the beta branch in steam. Use proton experimental, no tweaks beyond that.

Didn't test DW1 - that also had problems.

Borderlands 3 via Epic Games not starting

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 27 Sep 2023 - 4:57pm

I installed Garuda to get rid of Windows and tried playing some games. Some work like a charm, e.g. War Thunder or Ace Combat 7 (both via Steam).

When trying to play Borderlands 3 (via Epic Games directly and via Lutris (also Epic Games)) but without success. I cannot see a load generated to pre-compile shaders (neither CPU (checked with htop) nor GPU (checked with nvidia-smi)).

I am quite new to gaming on Linux. Could anybody please give me some hints on how to debug such cases - especially this and of course in general for the future?
