MMO mouses in 2018

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 12. Juni 2018 - 19:58

Hello

I used, so far:

- Roccat Nyth: the community driver is perfectly working, but the right click died after a few months. Also, i can't reach all the 12 thumb buttons, so i use only 9 of them (and it's still easy to miss-click, i probably should use only 6, but as a MMO player, i need a LOT of them...).

- Razer Naga (the very first one, back in... 2010?). I can't talk about the community driver, because i used it only with Windows. I had the same problem with thumb buttons, even worst than with the Roccat Nyth. I only managed to use 6 of the 12 available.

I heard of:

- MadCatz MMOTE. A lot of bad comments (the wheel seem very fragile), the design seem very weird (the thumb buttons are not aligned).

- Corsair SCIMITAR pro. A lot of bad comments on Corsair in the linux forums, considering the driver.

- Razer Naga Hex v2. Less thumb buttons, as it's for MOBAs. But maybe more useful for me, as i have a hard time using 12 buttons.

- Razer Naga Chroma. The new "12 buttons for the thumb" mouse from Razer. I suppose i won't be able to reach them (it's the same size as the old one, right?).

- Logitech g600.

- Redragon M901 Perdition. Very cheap.

- Redragon M990 LEGEND. Very cheap. So much buttons... (16 for the thumb).

- UtechSmart Venus. Very cheap. I read somewhere it's bigger than the other MMO mouses. Maybe i should try that one, so i can use more of the side buttons. But what about the linux driver (i found nothing about it on Google)?

What are your experiences with MMO mouses and Linux ? Any advice ?

7 games available on PC we need on Linux.

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 12. Juni 2018 - 16:27

The gaming side of Linux need to attract more players in order to be considered as a viable alternative to windows. To attract more players, we don't just need any games to be ported on Linux, we need popular and attractive games. We all have our opinion on the matter, but I think we should put our preference aside and try to build a list of important games that should be on Linux, not just games we - individually - want to be ported on the platform.

I won't put independant games, since I think we mostly get all the best indie games ported on Linux already.

As a long time player myself, here's a "top 10" clickbait list of games I consider important to make Linux grows as a viable alternative to windows for gaming :

  • PUBG/Fortnite :

Those two are the first obvious choice that come to my mind. They have massive playerbases, they're multiplayers games and they're often the sole reason why some people have a PC in a first place. I'm not a huge fan of the genre (too much downtime), but let's not fool ourselves, those two games could help Linux like no other games.

I was hesitant to put them at first since PUBG is a technical mess and Fortnite gameplay is as shallow as it can get. I thought - like many of us - that the BR trend would eat the 2018 E3 and put those two in a difficult position, but E3 is over now and those two games might seem like they'll have no strong competition for the years to come.

  • Tekken 7/8/9... :

Outside of Skullgirls, fighting-games that support Linux are rare. Tekken 7 is thought to be the best Tekken ever released, even better than the famous T5DR. Tekken 7 is not just a good fighting game, it's also a true technical showcase and could run on a toaster. Like PUBG/Fortnite, it's also a multiplayer game with a dedicated fanbase. It's also the most popular classical fighting game on Steam right now : even if you add the active playerbase of SFV, KOFIV and DBZF, it would still be less than the active playerbase of Tekken 7. It's also more popular than Mortal Kombat X, Killer instinct and Injustice 2 (and also a far better fighting game than those, to be honest).

I also don't think Bandai Namco would drop the UE4 engine in the future and from what I heard here and there, UE4 might make it easier for the dev to support Linux in the future. Porting Tekken 7 would streamlined the workflow for the next iterations of the franchise and make Tekken the fighting game franchise on Linux.

  • Overwatch/Heartstone :

I hate overwatch and heartstone with a passion, but let's be honest, those Blizzard games are not just populars, they're also here to stay. Fortnite, Heartstone and Overwatch are important if we want to win the OS battle with the youngest generations because those generations mostly play those games and nothing else.

  • Dark Souls 3 :

Many people consider the first Dark Souls as the best one, but it's mostly nostalgy bias. I've played all them recently for the first time and the third is the best one without any hesitations. I'd only put Bloodborne above it, but unfortunately, it's a Sony title bound to the Playstation.

It's hard to have nothing but utter respect for this franchise. It's hard, it doesn't hold your hand, the landscape and atmosphere are breath-taking, the game is brutal and the fights are engaging. If we - Linux gaming players - would have to chose one single solo game to port to the platform, I think it would be this one.

You can also play it on online and the active playerbase is still high (around 10 000 players daily, even more popular than the recently released Dark Souls remastered).

  • Sonic and all-stars racing transformed :

This one might seem like an odd choice, but it could be great on Linux. It's a multiplayer title you can also play in local with your friend, it features fairly popular characters, it's a polished game that could run on a toaster and it's the closest we have to Mario Kart on PC. To many, SAASRT is even better than Mario Kart 8, which is not a small feat. Mario Kart is popular and I feel that Sonic Racing transformed could be popular on Linux for some reasons. It's the last on this list, but I think it could still be a nice addition to Linux.

What do you think ? Would you add another one ?

Mavericks is a Battle Royale game with unique open-world mechanics that plans Linux support with Vulkan

Gaming on Linux - 12. Juni 2018 - 15:36

Tags: Action, Coming Soon, Teaser, Battle Royale, Vulkan

Mavericks [Official Site] seems to be a rather interesting shooter, one that will have both an open world mode and a Battle Royale mode and it turns out it plans Linux support too. Although, it actually seems like the two modes are essentially blended together.

I had never heard of it until today, when it was pointed out in our Discord channel, that the CEO of Automaton Games himself confirmed it on reddit a few months ago:

Hi there,

Yes, there will be a Linux version of Mavericks (in fact we already use Linux for all game-related workers and servers, including physics and game logic)! Sadly, it is unlikely to be at launch, but the majority of the work has already been done for native Linux support (no need for porting). The delay is that we must first make sure the Vulkan renderer is production-ready. It's getting there, but we don't have a fixed date. We will make an announcement as soon as we do :)

James

What makes Mavericks sounds extremely interesting, is the persisent open-world approach it will take. You risk everything, but you have progression. There's a lot of information, so do check their official site to learn more.

They also released a new trailer during E3:

I've also emailed them today, to see if we can get some more information on their Linux plans. Stay tuned.

Thanks for the tip, NuSuey!

Hyperspace Delivery Service is a very retro looking strategy and adventure game coming to Linux

Gaming on Linux - 12. Juni 2018 - 15:03

Tags: Steam, Indie Game, Coming Soon, Action, Adventure, Strategy

Do you like the sound of trading, space combat, retro FPS combat, resource management and more? Hyperspace Delivery Service [Official Site] has all of that.

According to the game description, you were hired by the Hyperspace Delivery Service to make a perilous journey across known space for a special delivery. During your travels, you will need to manage your fuel, oxygen, food, and various other supplies. On top of that, you will be dealing with pirates with 3D space combat, fight on the ground with retro-inspired FPS combat and much more.

Coming sometime in "Early 2019" according to the Steam page, the developer confirmed to me personally that it will support Linux too.

Take a look at the new teaser trailer:

Third-person shooter Crazy Justice finally has a new trailer, possible release next week

Gaming on Linux - 12. Juni 2018 - 14:15

Tags: Battle Royale, Steam, Coming Soon, Action, Indie Game

For those excited to finally get a proper Battle Royale game on Linux, come check the latest trailer and information on Crazy Justice.

To be clear, it will have multiple game modes and a story, I'm just super excited for the BR mode.

They're showing it off at The MIX, an event that happens during E3 to highlight interesting indie games as opposed to the massive power-house AAA developer and publishers that E3 shines the light on.

As for the release date, it's looking like next week could finally be it. While in the last article (even more details there) they suggested it would be this week, it seems they didn't want to give away that they were at a proper event this week (or they weren't supposed to until the event organisers announced the lineup anyway), so next week is a lot more likely given what they've been saying in the Q&A sessions.

It will be a game we will livestream and play with the community, so be sure to follow us on Twitch.

Don't Starve: Hamlet DLC delayed until December

Gaming on Linux - 12. Juni 2018 - 14:04

Tags: DLC, Coming Soon, Indie Game, Survival

Klei have announced that the Don't Starve: Hamlet expansion that was announced in September last year, has moved to a December release.

Originally, they were planning a Q1/Q2 release. Here's what they said about the delay:

Hey everybody.

We're not quite where we want Hamlet to be yet so we're moving out the date to December 2018. We're sorry for the delay, it's just taking us a bit longer than we anticipated to fill out as much content as we are aiming for. We know people have been patiently waiting for more news; so for now, enjoy a fun gameplay trailer we made to give you a taste of what we've got in store for you in Don't Starve: Hamlet.

Honestly, this kind of delay is okay. Klei have exceptional quality in their games, so I know when they delay something it's one of the few times I'm truly not worried.

They also put up a new trailer:

As a big fan of Don't Starve, I'm quite excited to give it a go. As usual, the style Klei have here is simply amazing, like those incredibly cute little ladybird-type bugs you see that suddenly have a ginormous mouth that opens to gnaw at you when they get close.

Wine 3.10 is out with improved Vulkan support and more

Gaming on Linux - 12. Juni 2018 - 11:03

Tags: Wine

Another interesting Wine release became available yesterday, with Wine 3.10 bringing more Direct 3D 12 and Vulkan work.

Here's their highlights of what's new:

  • Swapchain support in Direct 3D 12.
  • Vulkan support updated to the latest spec.
  • Debugger support for Wow64 processes.
  • Still more support for the Task Scheduler.

As for bug fixes, they noted 17 had been checked off. These include issues being solved with Neverwinter Nights 2, Max Payne 3, World of Tanks and more. Although, to be clear as always, bugs being noted as solved in the release announcements doesn't necessarily mean they were fixed by this release, some are older bugs being marked off (which is good anyway).

Incredibly progress as always, pleasing to see for those few Windows games in my library that are likely never to come to Linux that I might attempt in Wine one day.

Looks like Harebrained Schemes are working on the Linux build of BATTLETECH now

Gaming on Linux - 12. Juni 2018 - 10:56

Tags: Strategy, Coming Soon

Good news for all those waiting on the mech strategy game BATTLETECH [Official Site], as there's hints of it actually coming soon now.

On TuxDB, a Linux content depot was detected. Looking into it further on SteamDB, it seems it's true and they've been working on the Linux content. Of course, we still have no idea when it will actually release for us, but this is a very good sign.

They did say back in May, that the Linux version was a high priority for the post-launch roadmap. They are also aiming for a bigger update either this month or July, so perhaps the Linux version will release along side that? Who knows, but we will of course notify you of any changes.

From original BATTLETECH/MechWarrior creator Jordan Weisman and the developers of the award-winning Shadowrun Returns series comes the next-generation of turn-based tactical 'Mech combat. 

The year is 3025 and the galaxy is trapped in a cycle of perpetual war, fought by noble houses with enormous, mechanized combat vehicles called BattleMechs. Take command of your own mercenary outfit of 'Mechs and the MechWarriors that pilot them, struggling to stay afloat as you find yourself drawn into a brutal interstellar civil war. Upgrade your starfaring base of operations, negotiate mercenary contracts with feudal lords, repair and maintain your stable of aging BattleMechs, and execute devastating combat tactics to defeat your enemies on the battlefield.

As a huge fan of turn-based strategy games and anything to do with massive mech units, I've been eagerly waiting this one. Still a shame it was delayed, let's hope they've used that time to make the Linux version work well.

Looking for a FPS counter overlay program

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 12. Juni 2018 - 07:09

Hi,

I am looking for a Fraps-like program that can display an in-game overlay showing the current FPS.

I know the Steam Overlay has this capability, but I would like something that works even for non-Steam games (and Steam games where the overlay is broken).

What I've found so far :

  • VoGLPerf : Only works for Steam games, it seems.
  • GLXOSD : promising but unfortunately discontinued.
  • Gallium HUD : doesn't work with NVidia proprietary drivers.

Any other ?

Thanks.

Linux has too small a marketshare for us to consider it a viable option

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 12. Juni 2018 - 05:03

"Of course, we'll jump into developing for VR straight away!"

Is this hypocrisy? According to Steam, more people play on Linux than have a VR headset. What's the difference, is their money greener?

Nvidia 396 drivers bad, or something else?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 12. Juni 2018 - 05:00

Recently distrohopped again, going from Ubuntu to Arch. Installed drivers, vulkan, whatever, but performance has fucking tanked. I used to get 140+ FPS in DOOM on ultra settings, now the game lags and is a stuttering, unplayable mess on medium. WoW with dxvk, I get barely 30 FPS in semi-crowded areas. All this on a GTX 1080.

Downgrading drivers is a bit of a pain, so I'm just wondering if it's the driver or something else at this point
