Natural Selection 2 goes 64bit, performance improvements and some Linux breakage
7 October 2017 at 8:54 pm UTC

QuoteLinux 64bit client has issue on start-up. This can be fixed by recreating the symlinks for FMOD libraries (in the x64 sub-folder within the NS2 install directory):
ln -sf libfmodex64-4.44.58.so libfmodex64.so
ln -sf libfmodevent64-4.44.58.so libfmodevent64.so
ln -sf libfmodeventnet64-4.44.58.so libfmodeventnet64.so

Reinstalled this game and had to do the above, that was mentioned in the changelog. In addition I also had to install sndio from aur to get it working. Also before these steps you need to opt in the beta

Wine Staging 2.18 is out with fixes for Battle.net, Uplay & Origin also bugs fixed with Overwatch

14That's some great news. While I've steered away from using Wine, once I nuke my Windows 7 installation in the year 2020, there may be a game or two that I can't live without.

Some games that I can live without but would be nice to have:
PUBG
HotS
Skyrim (already beat it, but kinda want to play through it again)
Elder Scrolls Online
Guild Wars 2
Battlefield 4
Starcraft II

Out of those games, I've only been playing PUBG lately. While I would miss playing that with my friends, It's not a road block for me ditching Windows once it loses all support.

As far as I know HotS, Skyrim, GW2 and SC2 should work through wine...(at least they worked quite well the last time I played them.)

minidouany suggestion on MMORPG that runs natively on linux or without much trouble through wine?
I play Star wars the old republic through wine, and as far as I know World of warcraft also runs perfectly through wine. But as far as I know there aren't currently any _good_ mmorpg games that run natively on linux...
