SteamLUG Event - Guns Of Icarus Online Gameplay
By intok, 28 October 2013 at 2:26 pm UTC

We recently had another go at GoI, http://steamcommunity.com/groups/steamlug/discussions/2/864979008514700730/#c810939351218390395

If anyone is interested, I still have 2 keys for the GoI to trade.

We could use more people playing it so when we have another event we can have at least 2 ships fully staffed for better coordination.

Quote from abelthorneI've had a lot of performances issues with L4D2 on Linux (a lot of input lag, stuttering, micro-freezes, fps drop...) and was hoping that they came from a lack of optimization during the beta but nope, still the same now... :/
Yeah, I suffer from some stuttering too, it always happens on the begining of each campaign and when I shoot for the first time, some moment here and there but it runs smooth (much better with my GeForce than with AMD, a festival of bugs for me), the lack of menu music wasn´t fixed yet but major problems were.

personally im really hoping for civ5 and portal 2(and pretty please skyrim). multiplayer fps died for me after quake3 : ) but there are obviously loads of people playing cs:go so yah, they should port it first.

Quote from berarmaReally interesting, I'd like to play it, we lack this kind of game. I've asked them about buying this game DRM-free, Steam-free.
really? have you missed out on war thunder, for example.
and if steam is such a big problem for ya, war thunder does not require steam, it is free and pretty well built and runs awesome with wine. (i've heard talk about a future native linux build... but i have no useful info on that)

7 Days To Die Taken Down From Steam
By intok, 28 October 2013 at 7:26 am UTC

Quotethe 7 Days To Die developers purchased models from the Unity store which were ripped from Killing Floor

Wait, wait, wait...

How is this not Unity3D's problem for selling the models to the 7 Days To Die team that they didn't own? This is a case of the 7 Days To Die team unwittingly being sold counterfeit goods, not of them ripping someone else off.

Red Orchestra 2 And Tripwire's Future Titles To Come To Linux
By philip550c, 28 October 2013 at 6:00 am UTC

I am happy to report that this weekend I played a nice LAN game of Killing Floor and all of my textures worked, including the flashlight. It looks like they solved the Nvidia texture bugs, I am so happy about this, thank you tripwire, we played for hours and we will be doing another round really soon. I still need to check it on my laptop just in case but I bet it works.

Steam is a bit chaotic for me...

Steam linux could use already linux ported games like Torchlight 1 and Psychonauts.
I hope that SEGA will not stop with Football Manager 2014.
Until than i will buy Akaneiro: Demon Hunter next month, because it looks promising on the video, bit like Torchlight and Diablo...

Quote from scaineAs for the next game, I'm really, really hoping for Portal 2. CSGO would be nice too, but most of my friends have moved on from that game, so a quality single-player experience in Portal 2 would be superb.

I hope they fixed my issue of being kicked every time I try to join multiplayer. I hope the next game is portal 2 since I really dislike the counter strike series. But both would be nice. Then all that's needed is alien swarm. Once portal 2 is released we will start getting games that were using that engine as well.

Quote from unstableI am using only Xubuntu 13.10, but steam for Linux is useless for me without Torchlight 2, Sonic Generations, Evoland, Final Fantasy 7, etc...

Steam for Linux needs more time, but is it worth to me or others to wait?

It's a tricky situation. How do we communicate demand to developers and still play the games we like which don't support Linux?

Personally, I've more of less stopped playing non-native games. It seems like a small sacrifice to make to avoid skewing market size figures - on Steam, when a Linux user purchases a Windows only game, that makes for a difference of two sales in favour of Windows (+1 Windows sale and -1 Linux sale because Steam doesn't let you purchase a game for yourself a second time when a native version becomes available). Worse still, if Windows only developers see that sort of buying behaviour, they may believe that they are able to service the Linux market without a native port.

IMO most played games should have higher priority, see the stats:

http://store.steampowered.com/stats/

So yea is probably better for CS:GO to come first. But they might be working on porting more than 1.

wow so very weird, reading how devs are opting to support linux/steamOS and indecisive about osX.

Thanks uncle Gabe !!

If linux keeps getting more support I can see many osX apps and users passing on to linux in the coming years. Linux could become number 2 rather quickly.

Yea I can't wait for CS:GO already got it and all I'm running is Linux so I haven't even played it yet, just waiting.

Well, performances are better when I use Openbox rather than Unity. And they're quite good in other Source games (HL2, TF2, Dota 2), even with Unity; that's why I thought it came from the fact that the game was in beta and didn't really bother reporting a bug. Anyway, the issues are probably driver-related (ATI Catalyst for the win, yayyy...).

And Portal 2 would be great, yeah (it's quite fun in 2 players co-op too).

Neocolonialism World Manipulation Strategy

Reminds me of Uplink.
Also, the map looks like a Gall-Peters projection, which seems like it would make sense in this kind of game.
Oh well, some equal area projection at least.

QuoteRed Baron will support Linux.
We want to let you know why. Because it's Open. We like Open. As Indie Game Developers for 20 years, we have had to fight the gatekeepers for access to their walled gardens. We want to let the players decide what games they want. We welcome an open, competitive market because we believe we can deliver as much value in our game as anyone else. We'd rather put all our time and effort into making the best possible game.
We haven't yet decided on whether or not to include OSX support.
We will support SteamOS.
The exact quote. Might want to update this post.

Input lag on Valve games is often fixed by simply turning off the Steam Overlay. Probably not a great option on a multi-player game like L4D2 though! I'm lucky that I get perfect performance in Ubuntu with that game. Most games in fact. I hope it gets fixed for you. Probably not too late to file a bug on github.

As for the next game, I'm really, really hoping for Portal 2. CSGO would be nice too, but most of my friends have moved on from that game, so a quality single-player experience in Portal 2 would be superb.
