Skyrim on Linux

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 21. Mai 2020 - 01:02

I switched exclusively to Arch Linux recently and I'm impressed with the performance. Skyrim is a game I play a lot on PS4, but was unplayable on Windows 10 for my system with Intel HD Graphics. On Linux running through lutris with the latest wine version I get higher and smoother fps even with mods installed. Not only that, but the game launches and closes far quicker.

Any good alternatives to Lutris

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 21. Mai 2020 - 00:19

I like lutris in all but it just seems clanky. When I am downloading a game it doesn't show the progress (for example). Does anyone have better alternatives?

Doom Eternal: id Software is going to remove anti-cheat in the next update

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20. Mai 2020 - 23:38

Despite our best intentions, feedback from players has made it clear that we must re-evaluate our approach to anti-cheat integration. With that, we will be removing the anti-cheat technology from the game in our next PC update. As we examine any future of anti-cheat in DOOM Eternal, at a minimum we must consider giving campaign-only players the ability to play without anti-cheat software installed

How could I make lan/multiplayer games split screen ?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20. Mai 2020 - 21:17

Hello everyone !

I'm going to be frank : I want to have two clients of a single game, each one handled by a keyboard and a mouse or a gamepad.

I'm searching for a "Universal Split Screen" type of program on linux. I'm on Ubuntu 20.04, with a gaming laptop (so great perfs, but single GPU, no multiseat possible)

I've heard about Xephyr, but couldn't make it work properly with for example minecraft.

Do you have any advice ?

Thanks in advance, I love this sub :)

unpack, mount, install and play

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20. Mai 2020 - 21:09

What does this mean? The file I've downloaded is a .rar file. These are the install instructions(the title). The files inside the rar file are .r07, .r08, .r09, .r10, .r11 ...(1 through 44) with also a .sfv, a .nfo file and another .rar. Can anyone give me a rough idea of the installation process for this?

EA to open source part of Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert

Gaming on Linux - 20. Mai 2020 - 20:56

With the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection releasing next month for Windows, EA had a bit of an announcement to make today in regards to open source.

Posting on Reddit as well as the Steam page, EA announced that both Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert will see their data being opened up. They will release "TiberianDawn.dll and RedAlert.dll and their corresponding source code under the GPL version 3.0 license". This is being done, they say, as a result of a collaboration between them and the community and they went with the GPL to "ensure compatibility with projects like CnCNet and Open RA".

This is quite surprising, I will admit. They already released the originals free back in 2010, during the 15th anniversary so this sounds like a nice step further. If it helps other projects reimplement more of them, then that's a win-win for everyone. Hopefully they will eventually do the same for more.

Although the Remastered Collection won't officially support Linux, do check out OpenRA if you haven't before, which supports the classic Westwood strategy games in a free and open source game engine. It's not fully the same, due to plenty of modernization but it's close and has support for a lot of the single-player campaigns, AI battles and cross-platform online play.

Feels like we're currently living in upside-down land. We have EA doing actual open source under the GPL, and on the other side we have id Software who used to release their game engines as open source now putting invasive anti-cheat into them like with DOOM Eternal.

Bioshock Remastered with extremely blurry textures

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20. Mai 2020 - 20:41

As title says, I'm trying to play Bioshock Remastered but the textures are so blurry that I'm unable to. Here's a link to how bad it is: https://i.imgur.com/PN4EOmz.png. I've seen people having this issue before in other Bioshock games and they some of them solved it by manually changing the amount of VRAM the game detected. I was unable to find this configuration in any of the game files.

I'm using Linux Mint 19.3 with a GeForce 1060 6gb. I'm running Bioshock through Proton 5.0-7 and I've also tried it with some other versions that I don't recall exactly. I'm ok with playing the original one, but it won't launch at all, so I'm really stuck here.

Has anyone got Mafia II: Definitive Edition running in Proton or Lutris?

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20. Mai 2020 - 20:27

The game is probably too new for ProtonDB because I didn't see it there or on the Lutris site.

Has anyone tinkered with this one yet? The original release needed a few workarounds, which I'm not afraid of, but I was wondering if there was anything different for the Definitive Edition?

Serious Sam 4 announced for August, confirmed for Stadia

Gaming on Linux - 20. Mai 2020 - 19:33

Serious Sam 4 from Croteam and Devolver Digital finally has a release window with it announced for August.

Croteam returns with a high-powered prequel to the Serious Sam series that scales up chaos to unprecedented levels. The classic Serious Sam formula is revamped by putting an unstoppable arsenal up against an unimaginable number of enemies that requires players to circle-strafe and backpedal-blast their way out of impossible situations.

It was just announced for Windows on Steam and Stadia too, so Linux fans using Stadia will be able to play it hopefully without any issues right away. Sadly, they removed mention of both Linux and macOS from the Steam store page back in April (SteamDB).

Some of what to expect from it can be seen in the below videos:

Watch video on YouTube.com

Croteam were one of the first companies to bring their games to Linux, back when Steam arrived for us in 2013. Since then they continued Linux support with Talos Principle and Serious Sam Fusion. Alen Ladavac, one of the Croteam co-founders actually left for Stadia last year too so it's not a surprise to see Stadia support continue.

We've emailed Devolver Digital, the publisher, to see if they have any comment on Linux desktop support. Otherwise it's Stadia and perhaps the Steam Play Proton compatibility layer for desktop Linux.

There's also a big Serious Sam Sale live on Steam now.

Found an app that does Xbox game streaming to Linux

Reddit Linux_Gaming - 20. Mai 2020 - 19:21

So I have been looking for some way to stream my Xbox to my Linux box without using dual boot and the Xbox app on Win10; virtualization was an utter failure, but then I found this project on github. All you have to do is use pip to install it, authenticate it with your Microsoft credentials, then run it and start playing. Video and audio were slightly choppy but it’s still pretty good. However, it cannot turn the Xbox on for you, so you either have to use a voice assistant, Xoon, this python script, or the actual controller (assuming you are within range). The project seems abandoned as of now, but maybe some of use could contribute?

tl;dr Free Xbox game streaming app for Linux, works pretty well, link
