ArehandoroI wish they look into including some m.2 SSD out of the box and deprecate the sd card. Also wish had the money to do a cluster with several of them

Not an nvme but this is at least better than an SD card:

Saw that but will still require having an external SSD connected via USB to it (just nit-picking here haha)

No it just so happens that it runs in current Chromium but not current Firefox (needs Nightly), since I didn't have Nightly Firefox installed I just used what I had available for a timely shot. I'm not clever enough to be that snarky.

Stadia Pro subscribers get 5 new games on June 1
By RafiLinux, 29 May 2020 at 6:32 pm UTC Likes: 1

t3gTo be honest, I could do without these Stadia posts. Stadia is a closed platform that takes away all your rights since you are basically paying monthly and full price per game to interact with a video on another server. Once that service is gone or Google gets bored of it, you lose access to $60 games.

I of course game on Steam and try to buy on GOG when I can. I like the DRM free nature and can archive my games if I want. It’s one of the last outlets where I still feel like I’m getting something that will last.

Stadia being “Linux” is just like saying macOS is “BSD” due these companies taking free software and locking it down into their own walled gardens.

Many of the games on Steam and GOG are closed source also...I hear you, though. Also games are not $60. They have some games going as low as $5 to $10. I picked up MK11 for $30 and they accepted free gift cards from Gpay so that's a win since you can earn that elsewhere in the same way that ppl sell items on Steam to buy games.

A Linux gamer can play games on Stadia on their Linux desktop that alone is reason enough to cover, IMO.

They should release it as a free demo as-is.

Love the game. It's like a turn-based Starcraft. Works beautifully on Linux. The new faction dlcs are nice especially the one with tyranids.
Game AI is quite decent as in units retreat when they get overwhelmed but not that smart as to outmaneuver you. But, then again, I've mostly played on normal on large maps with 2v2v2v2 alliances.

He's not ruling it out for the future, though.

I think they clearly want a place in the burgeoning all-purpose (incl. desktop use) SBC market; perhaps they'll have to introduce a 'pro' line or something, to compete among the ~$100 boards that are gaining traction (& some of them are x86 based, which has its attractions). The 4GB & 8GB models no longer fit the original 'mission statement' (so to speak) of the RPi foundation.

Although I'm the first to admit that I really like what can be done with the raspberry pi, for me the Pi4 is actually a little too much. Once the power requirements went up basically, I deemed it beyond the whole purpose I was originally interested in them in the first place.

Otherwise I'd just go for an Intel NUC of some description.

Hence for now I'm sticking with a raspberry pi 3.

Path of Exile adds a Vulkan Beta, another step closer to Linux support
By Pangaea, 29 May 2020 at 4:54 pm UTC

Is the game still a zoom-zoom speedorama and right-click and the screen dies kinda game? It was fun for a while, but all that grinding and headache inducing game got boring.

Nice if it's eventually properly supported on Linux, though. Worked perfect for me with DXVK a year or two ago, mind you.

It's technically free to play, but that isn't going to be a very practical solution for very long. Too much loot, different 'currency', and loads of stuff from different "leagues", and very small stacking sizes for most things. UI design is geared towards selling extra stashes, and of course there are more microtransctions than you can wave a very large stick at too.

Oh well, it was fun for a while, but that kind of gameplay simply wasn't for me. Not enough Pavlovian genes

TheRiddickAlso the whole concept of how it works is pretty bad, you pay full price for the game you can't take home, then you must pay to USE the service on top...

Your concept of how it works is misinformed. You do NOT have to pay to use Stadia, it's free. You CAN pay for a Pro subscription to unlock higher resolutions and "free" monthly games, but that's optional.

If I quit my Pro membership today I'd still be able to play Doom and RDR2 on Stadia free of charge, at 1080P resolution.

Every time I get a black screen that just sits there until the game stops responding.

First things first, which driver version are you using?

I ended up figuring it out. I had to set VK_ICD_FILENAMES="/usr/share/vulkan/icd.d/nvidia_icd.json" as a Launch Option, otherwise the game tried to find that data in the WINE C:\Users\steamuser\My Documents\My Games\Path Of Fire directory

And my driver version is 440.82

Eben Upton mentioned that in an interview a couple of months ago. They're still very conscious about building to a price and backwards compatibility (they agonized quite a bit over switching to USB-C for the PSU, for example, but the power requirements demanded it). So any new storage connections would have to be in addition to the existing ones, at least for the first model with them, and right now that would add too much to the price. He's not ruling it out for the future, though.

By TheRiddick, 29 May 2020 at 3:33 pm UTC

The point of my post is that people are not really caring much about Stadia or if it gets 5 new games. I may raise a eyebrow if they add 100 new games a month... but 5 is pretty crappy.

Also the whole concept of how it works is pretty bad, you pay full price for the game you can't take home, then you must pay to USE the service on top... WHY don't they just include a flat rate price per month and let people play everything much like how game services on consoles work that give you a big collection of stuff to play for free..

BUT its like talking to a brick wall...

iskaputtDoes anyone use one of these things with a USB DAC? I have an Odroid C2 and audio via USB has been broken since forever. Tried about every distribution under the sun, but all produce some kind of noise or clicks in the audio output.

My plan was to have a multimedia station with batteries included. Kodi, MPD, RetroArch and maybe some server applications like Mumble. I want to connect the audio to my old stereo.

Yes, although i have found I²S DAC hats much better like a hifiberry

@tuubi I guess that is to be expected. Not a big deal but it takes a while with lots of games installed. So I will probably switch to using Mesa drivers that don't update daily

NagezahnMaybe the title is a bit misleading. You can export your games to HTML5 for a while already. New is indeed the editor can also be run in a browser.
How is it in any way misleading? It's talking about Godot Engine, not exported games, which as you clearly see and commented yourself is new. Nothing about calling it misleading makes sense. I've added the word "editor" to the title to make it explicitly clear in any case.
Well, the engine is running the games (and yes, the editor, too). To be able to run a game in the browser it must be able to run the engine (which comes as JS and webassembly). There are some restrictions, though, what is supported when exporting to HTML5. So the news is, for me, that the HTML5-export of the engine is now capable of running the editor.

The title of the linked blog post explicitly speaks of the editor as well:

Stadia Pro subscribers get 5 new games on June 1

t3g

Then turn them off in the control panel? Bye Felicia.

bye

Here's my thoughts on why I use Stadia. Stadia is Linux and DOES help Linux gaming. It's up to developers/publishers to bring their games to desktop Linux.

If DOOM Eternal was on Linux, I would have bought it on steam. If RDR2 was on Linux, I would have bought it on steam. But they're not and I'm not about to rent a Windows machine in the cloud just to play the games I want to play but cannot on Linux (DOOM Eternal on proton could break after any update, as already proven).

QuoteNative Linux Release > Supported Proton Release > Stadia > Unsupported/Non-legal tweaks

I will buy Metro Exodus on steam...once it comes to Linux.

But the editor is a Godot app too. The Godot editor is basically a Godot game. So if games run in webbrowser, the editor will maybe aswell ;)
