Transhuman Design has removed the Linux version of BUTCHER due to issues in favour of Steam Play

appetrosyanSDL versions are even worse: it's the same kind of indirection, simply less flexible and far less maintainable. Why do we insist that a compiled closed-source POSIX executable is better than an interpreted foreign one?
The SDL dig doesn't make sense, but of course a closed source native build is better than a closed source "interpreted" one, if everything else is equal. ("Interpreted" in quotes because Wine isn't really an interpreter.)

A bad native Linux port VS a good wrap job is a bit different, but this doesn't mean the wrapper is the better technical solution. Using one is simpler than writing a truly portable game though, especially if you don't really know your target platform, and it might work just fine. Or it might not.

tuubiThere's also the "Proprietary Development GPU Drivers" PPA by the same team that currently still has 396.54.05, but should update to .06 soon.



I ran the files in terminal and in software update its still showing 390 and 396 alone
Should i purge and reinstall ?
They only have a package per driver series, so nvidia-driver-396 is the right (meta)package to install. Current version in that PPA is 396.54.05.

massatt212how do i install NVIDIA 396.54.06 on Ubuntu or should i go with NVIDIA 410.57 (Im not sure is 410.57 have the beta updates of 396.54.06)

Since you're probably using the graphics-drivers PPA, just wait until the new driver is put into there. It should then be available as a separate option in the Driver Manager, or of course you can install it via the command line.

Looks like a decent puzzle game at a low price. Wake me up when it's properly finished.

LeopardFeral should seriously consider using DXVK for old titles. For example : Tomb Raider 2013
Why? Seemed to work just fine when I last tried it. If it performs better with DXVK for you, does it do so on all supported hardware out of the box? I doubt it's even worth the QA.

That's why.

Results with DXVK is even better. That is from 2016.
The Linux port was updated for better performance after that video was made, as confirmed by the comments. I don't doubt that it might still perform better with Wine/DXVK, but that doesn't mean ditching their native port for a Wine wrapper and redoing the QA would be worth it for Feral. I might agree with you if their port was horribly bad, but it just isn't.

Adventure game 'The Darkside Detective: Season 2' is on Kickstarter

I have no doubt the Kickstarter will succeed based on how much people enjoyed Season 1.

Quote...you can grab it from Humble Store which includes both a GOG and Steam key.
Are you sure it's a GOG key and not a DRM-free download directly from Humble? That's how it usually works. I don't see a mention of GOG anywhere.

Not an entry. I just wanted to doodle a TUX-Wing.
