SteamVR 1.9 is out, Linux VR users may want to opt into a Beta
19 December 2019 at 7:16 am UTC

Quoting: MatomboI'm now owing a Valve index but i sadly must admit that steamvr for linux is still more or less a beta overall:
Camera not working
Audio not working without tinkering
Mic not working without tinkering
Reprojection is causing headdache inducing flickering
And the constant rumbling bug in the controllers (i guess that's what they are refering to the "rare" stuck haptics bug, which isn't quite so rare)

However, despite this I'm havin a blast playing Serious Sam and Talos Principle und other games using proton ^^.

I was thinking to buy a Valve index as an Xmas Present for me but I guess it will have to wait since nothing is working..

Another big SteamVR update is out now, with plenty of Linux fixes for VR enthusiasts

I am thinking to get Valve Index VR as Xmas Present, I wonder if its worth it to use it under Linux.

Also I wonder how is VR under Linux , do we have enough titles or at the end is not worth it?

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition released with Linux support
6 November 2019 at 9:36 am UTC

Friends playing planet Zoo and other waiting for STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order™ to be released in a couple of days.
Some other already pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077....

And here is me trying to convince myself to get that game on steam since I already have it on a PS4 a year ago.

Is almost 2020 and still we dont get newly released games in Linux , I wonder if that will ever change.
Waiting for Proton compatibility or ports after a year is not an option for Gamers.

Bendy and the Ink Machine & Prison Architect going cheap in the new Humble Very Positive Bundle 3
17 July 2019 at 6:26 am UTC

Quoting: PhlebiacSteam said I already own Bendy and the Ink Machine (probably some prior bundle). However, it says the executable is missing; in fact, installing it just yielded an empty directory here. Is it working for anyone else?

Edit: verifying integrity in Steam says everything is good, so it must be an empty depot or something.

Edit 2: maybe I just had the demo, and they screwed up when they merged everything together:
Apr 27, 2017 Bendy and the Ink Machine Complimentary

I think complimentary means to play it for a while or for a review/testing but some developers give you a lifetime complimentary licenses for their games.

Anyway you can remove the complimentary and add the humble license.

Unity have now properly announced Linux support for the Unity Editor

I was vouching for Unreal Engine to be the best Gaming Engine For Linux but it seems that Unity is the way to go if you are a Linux Game Developer.

Find GamingOnLinux useful? Your support would be appreciated

Well I am no more into gaming as much as I used to , literally no time at all but I visit Gaming on Linux often I Can say as well as other gaming sites.

Gamingonlinux was one of the first sites I visited and contributed.
I used to donate in the past with paypal and then patreon and donated some games as well for giveaways when GamingOnLinux had their Anniversary etc.
When I Stopped donating for some time , I lost my support badge and ended with an ugly white theme even though Liam said that it will be forever for people who donated, well that pissed me off a bit since the black theme was only for Supporters so I ended up creating my own theme.

Well since I Stopped/reduced gaming I stopped as well from donating and even if I had the intention to donate via paypal I would still have the limitations of black theme or whatever else is for premium members so instead of donating to Gamingonlinux I have donated to phoronix, plex and some oher services for lifetime subscription and if I feel like I could donate some more from time to time.

Is good to have supporters but dont kick away the people who have supported you in the past.
It was just a badge and a black theme and instead of let us have it you just kick us out.

People who have donated even 1$ should have the black theme and badge support
People who continuously support you via patreon or paypal or other method ,these people should have access to black theme , exclusive articles , steam keys etc.

Anyway I just expressed my complain like it or not , find ways to attract people and keep also your visitors and past contributors happy.

Have a nice day ..
