Total War: THREE KINGDOMS has been delayed

Isn't TK gonna have super small army sizes and no agents? Not gonna have much gameplay at all at this rate. Let's hope they fix up the AI at least, although the footage we've seen isn't encouraging.

vipor29valve needs to fix this problem.make the games think it is running in windows or something because alot of games are broken because of this drm crap.i have to use windows due to games not working.when it gets fixed ill ditch it for good.
Valve does have a whitelist of games for SteamPlay. It is quite tiny compared to the actual games that do work with Proton.

I do not think Paladins was ever on that list.

Too bad Valve hasn't publicly released the whitelist. It would make it easy to point people to games that should work.

A quick run over some details from the recent ProtonDB data

QuoteIt's also nice to see so many people trying out (and enjoying) The Witcher 3, with it being the second most popular game.

Yes, very nice seeing plagiarism get rewarded. Good lesson for everyone: want to be successful? Just steal some shit. As long as Moorcock doesn't get his share of the royalties, I'll keep advocating for people to boycott TW.

Space shooter 'Disputed Space' arrives on Linux offering up intense 3D action

tmtvlMan, we need more space sims, X2/3 and Vega Strike alone aren't cutting it for me.
Are you serious, or were you joking ironically, as in, 'that's what the state of the Space Sim was in Linux in, like, 2012 and look how far we've come'? As a big space gamer, I can attest that the the state of the space sim is quite good in Linux right now and we have little out there we can't play. We have:

Arc Savior (coming soon)
Disputed Space
Freespace 1 and 2 via Openspace (and its mods like the Battlestar Galactica inspired Diaspora)
Helium Rain
Overload (not really space, but I put Descent inspired shooters in this group)
Strike Suit Zero
X2/3/Rebirth (with the amazing X4 coming soon)

Windows titles via Proton or Wine that work:
Angels Fall First
Elite Dangerous
Eve Valkyrie
Executive Assault 2
Void Destroyer 1 and 2
I-War 1 and 2
Landinar Into the Void
House of the Dying Sun
Star Citizen
War Tech Fighters
XWing and XWvsTF classics

And that's just what I can think of off the top of my head. That's most of the recent and past all time genre greats. That's enough space gaming to play as a full time job, if you wished . The only space title in Windows I can think of that doesn't work on Linux via Proton right now that I desire is Spacebourne (and I plan on reaching out to that dev since it's an Unreal 4 engine game, and most of those should work), that's about it...

I did say "Space Sim", not "Space Shooter", didn't I? Don't get me wrong, I like Tachyon: The Fringe as much as the next guy, but there's a difference between "Shoot people in space" and "space sim". Although that is a big generalisation, so I should probably change it to "Space Sandbox". Also I don't count MMO's because there you just get trollololed into space dust.

Also also, lol X Rebirth, the black sheep of the series.

Revenge is a dish best served cold. It's very cold in space.

BeamboomTotally unrelated but:
Seeing screenshots like that, and then looking over at screenshots of our indie games... And... Yeah, well...

Yeah, indies are neat and all, but most just aren't worth it.

X2: The Threat. X3 is nice and all, but I love parking my ship inside of a station, it's the little thing that increases my immersion to the point where I just love flying around planning my economic empire.

I'd try it out if it didn't have CSD. Those things are the worst.

The Emperor's inquisition informs any and all that this would be heresy and orders those who would hold this opinion to report to their local Ordo Hereticus agent.

tony1abDon't reach them. Reach Valve. Reach Proton support forums.
They're who, proudly, want to make all the games playable in linux.
They will do their best to make it compatible by fixing things in proton's code by programming, or by making deals with the developers.

Is the game on the Steamplay whitelist? No? Then don't expect support. The whitelist exists for a reason.
