What are you playing this weekend?

Posted by , | Views: 13,115

It's the weekend already? It's also September! When did that happen?

This weekend's main dish is going to be Two Point Hospital, the recent release that has you build a hospital and cure people from some really strange and slightly amusing afflications. So far it seems pretty good and runs really nicely. I will have some proper thoughts up early next week on that!

I've no doubt I will also be diving into some more BlazeRush (70% off on Humble) and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (60% off on Humble). Both of which I'm loving in local multiplayer with the mini-me.

Doom in Steam Play is also on the radar. I have to say I am really impressed with it, some good demon slaying to be had. The Vulkan performance is nuts, so smooth!

So the question is: what are you playing this weekend? Do let us know what you think about it!

Well I finally got Skyrim to work just now so I may be playing that during my spare time tomorrow.

This link did the trick https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/99i4se/skyrim_on_linux_steam_play_no_voiceno_music_audio/

BUT I made xaudio2_6 Native & Xaudio2_7 Builtin, now I just have to figure out a way to stop it freezing on exit.

WorMzyI've been playing Mass Effect using Steam Play. For the most part, it's worked well. There have been a few crashes, but I think that's probably just the game rather than Proton.

Did you have to do anything special to make audio work? When I run Mass Effect using Steam Play, the intro audio works, and then the game is quiet.

trawzI got This is the Police and Bioshock Infinite yesterday, and I still need to finish Undertales genocide route, but I can't get past Undyne. Anyone have tips?

Samsai did it on stream. It's a matter of try, try, try and if you die, try again.

Yeah, there's an asound override you need to do in winecfg: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40898

After that, sound works fine. For my system I had to run winecfg with the following prefix:
WINEPREFIX=/media/steam-ext4-fast/steamapps
compatdata/17460/pfx winecfg
you'll need to adjust your your setup.

Thank you, I'll give it a try.

Edit: I used the information in this link to force software audio, Mass Effect audio fix. It works perfectly now.

So many Proton games played. I haven't done anything with it apart from a few tests. Native FTW!

Except that I was playing Jackbox for the entire evening in a birthday stream.

Sorry to disappoint but I am clocking 173h on Two Worlds II, a Windows game I adore, via playonlinux + wine-staging... And also some Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop via Proton. Is not that I don't have Linux games, it's just that it opened up so much to me that I can't help but experiment!
