Latest Indie Royale bundle has a whopping 1 Linux game!
By , 8 November 2012 at 5:43 pm UTC

For sure getting shafted. I own already like up to 3 or 4 times the same games from the humble indie bundle, I think that's enough… yeaaa might be, 'specially if it's to give money to a bad copy of the humble indie bundle which not care about linux platform at all (I looked many times, I saw like… maybe 1/6 linux games which either suck, or were already released in the humble indie bundle before) But as you said… might be a way to get AT LEAST one cheap game for those who missed HIB

Northland should be next FYI.

Hopefully the operation will be successful for RuneSoft and other games will come.

I don't know what is the impact of this forum, and I don't know how popular Desura is among Linux users (I only discovered it few weeks ago thanks to LGP).

Good luck !

Again, a little more expensive than it probably should be, but if it is true that RuneSoft has committed to some actual new ports being on the way, I am willing to cut them a little slack.

EDIT: Here is the confirmation:
Quoting: kratz00t[LEFT]All I can say for now is, we are working on Airline Tycoon Deluxe and Northland, they will be available on Desura really soon. Next up will be Jack Keane and the Ankh series. The Ankh series will also include Ankh 3 for Linux for the first time ever, but probably not this year. [/LEFT][LEFT]At the moment there is no final decision about all the other games yet.[/LEFT]

Great to hear, if it is so!

I hope it's written better than MC.

Either way, I'd rather have the other scrolls on Linux :D

Steam Closed Beta Now Live!

It's annoying I've no idea why apps won't scale but get boxed out.

Ah, it just letter-boxed it on my laptop and scaled on my desktop, I never really experienced any issues of this kind.

I changed it fine from the settings, why look for the config?

Annoyingly there are some texture bugs (surfaces completely white).

Also, why can't devs just use the bloody XDG specs? Even just hardcoding it to .local/share/ is better than dumping everything in the home directory...

Okay so Killing Floor on intel HD4000 at 1920x1080 resolution = good performance, awesome work!

By Liam Dawe, 10 November 2012 at 11:17 am UTC

Yup and even though it installs with a resolution of 800x600 (lolqut) i managed to find the config to change it, haven't tested performance yet though.

Well, either way KF is now updated for everyone.

Steam Closed Beta Now Live!
By Cheeseness, 10 November 2012 at 4:53 am UTC

Quoting: "Anon, post: 6260"All the games have the binaries, but only for the beta-testers. KF is on Linux, TF2 is on Linux and CKII is on Linux, but only for the lucky 1000 (and UDS attendees).

This isn't the case. Everything that you already own that has Linux listed under "validoslist" in its CDR will show up in your games list, but only games that appear [URL='http://store.steampowered.com/search#os=linux']here[/URL] actually have published content, even for beta participants (so, for example, Rochard appears in everybody who has it's game list, but installing it only creates an empty folder).

For anybody who's poking around with a distro other than Ubuntu, I'm trying to keep a current list maintained [URL='http://steamcommunity.com/groups/steam-linux/discussions/0/882965239594443552/']here[/URL]. So far, people have reported Fedora, Arch, Gentoo, Mint, OpenSUSE, and a couple of flavours of Debian, along with a nice range of WMs/DEs.

A friend of mine used to play and loved it, I will be getting it.

Also, anyone got any idea how good Red Orchestra is? It's coming to Linux as well, but I've no idea whether it's worth getting. Hopefully the second one will come eventually as well, but for that we'd need Unreal 3...

By , 9 November 2012 at 7:43 pm UTC

Yeah, I really hope I can get in for the sake of KF and that they release L4D2 in the next round. They work well enough under Wine, but now that they are coming, I don't want to put up with Wine!

By Liam Dawe, 9 November 2012 at 7:17 pm UTC

They also just added a load of character pack DLC's for Killing Floor :)

By Liam Dawe, 9 November 2012 at 7:15 pm UTC

Well i reckon another week maybe until the next round of invites, I love Killing Floor so I hope I am in the next batch to play it again!

Well, with Steam you have to buy into their philosophy. If you don't, you are left in the cold. That is true in general.

In this specific case though, we will have to wait and see, and it is still in closed beta after all. I am really kind of perplexed by all the people jumping into this thing so quickly and in some ways leaving their good sense at the door - it is still very early yet, so calm down and down everyone and maybe learn a little bit of patience.

Says someone who is personally not terribly interested I know. But still...
