War Thunder may replace OpenGL and DirectX 9 with Vulkan in "the near future"

SchattenspiegelFor the Linux version it would be awesome - we might actually hope to get properly working anti aliasing then instead of fx-screenblur-aa.
That would only leave 5.1/7.1 surround sound on my wish list then.

If your GPU can handle it, you can change the backgroundScale:r=1 parameter in config.blk to a number higher than 1 for true multisampling. My GTX1080 could handle 2x oversampling at 1920x1200 (so, downsample from 3840x2400) with still stable +60fps on otherwise generally very high or maxed settings. And it looks fantastic.

You might have to make the the config.blk file read only afterwards before launching the game - as it's an unsupported value, the game will try to revert it, otherwise.

M@GOidI hope they keep this behavior for SteamOS, because I believe it can cause problems on a conventional distro were users are costumed in changing video drivers all the time.

Why should this cause problems?

If you change video driver, the old cache should become invalid, get deleted and replaced.

This is actually excellent. I've been curious about the game, but I wasn't sure I would get into it. I will definitely try this, and it might easily earn a purchase if it turns out worthwhile.

So, I played… Undertale

To me it will forever remain one of the most important stories in my life.

I feel sorry for the people who can't enjoy it.

Everyone has a different taste and it's fine to dislike what others enjoy, but I have the feeling that if you don't enjoy this one, you have to be missing something.

What have you been playing recently and what do you think about it?

Night In The Woods.

It resonates a lot with how I feel these days. It's a lot like Undertale.

mirvI dislike anyone trying to make games reliant on closed source libraries. Even if it's an independent lib for now, I'm sure Valve will want it tied into Steam as well. I have similar problems with SteamWorks too. Guess it'd be ok as optional, but I'd rather them pushing something FOSS.

They can't just make it FOSS because they haven't developed it themselves in the first place.

E: Actually, no, they do own it apparently - Valve acquired that company a month ago. That still kind of explains the license isn't completely sorted out yet.

I am still not aware of any case when Valve would provide something for free and without strings attached only to change it later. Steamworks and everything else have been a clear deal right off the bat.

ShmerlWill it work as an independent library in the actual games, or it's tied to Steam?

It's an independent library.
