OpenSAGE, an early WIP game engine for Command & Conquer: Generals adds Linux support
25 June 2018 at 9:56 am UTC Likes: 2

legluondunetBut we have already OpenRA to play Command and Conquer and it does it very well, why create another project?
Command and Conquer Generals uses a vastly different engine than the early C&C, C&C:Red Alert and Dune titles, hence it is not compatible with OpenRA to say the least - very, very loose and ugly explanation.

slaapliedjeWow, the performance is absolutely terrible. I play Rise of the Tomb Raider with no issues at 2560x1440, but this game just chokes at that resolution, even as far as the menus are slow to react when you mouse over the items.
Wut? There's pretty much definitely something wrong with your OS. Looking at your rig, it should be an absolute breeze to run as it runs perfectly fine on both my desktop and laptop.
desktop: i7-4790k + gtx1070
laptop: i5-8350U + integrated intel UHD620
If there aren't any logs to go by, maybe open a ticket in steam forums regarding the performance? The devs might be able to track it down.

... btw, are you using proprietary nvidia drivers? My testing was ran on 396.24 prop drivers where it performed excellent.

Warining! Shameless self-promotion inbound! DON'T LOOK!
An awesome game!

Looks like Nightdive Studios enhanced version of 'Turok' might be coming to Linux (update: it's out!)

I loved this game back in the day but never managed to finish it - well, now's the perfect time!

The developer behind DXVK probably has a ton of great job offers in his mailbox already I imagine.

A fresh DXVK release is out with fixes for NVIDIA, RADV and multiple game improvements

evergreencan somebody tell me if dxvk is good enough for buying far cry 5 and playing with it?
I don't have FarCry5 myself to test, but from what I heard from Xpander, it runs really well under DXVK at the moment. I'll link him here so he could provide more info.

I don't usually dig these types of games, however the setting looks too good to pass up. I'll be waiting.

"I love DRM free games!" - Just putting it out there... you know.

zebHas anyone tried to run the Vulkan version of Doom 2016? It starts, but at the very beginning, during the Bethesda logo video, image stutters and freezes. I am using Arch, 64-bit, with a 64-bit wine prefix.
Doom has pretty much been working via Wine since its release. As it supports Vulkan API by default, there is no need for DXVK or similar as Linux GPU drivers natively support Vulkan anyway. Haven't tested it with wine3.x though, but I doubt they have broken it.
The last I tried it was with wine2.3-staging and it worked right out of the box with a fresh wineprefix - if the new one gives you trouble, you could try it with this older wine version.

Point & click horror game 'Without Escape' to have Linux support, launching April 24th

Looks like something up my alley - will definitely give this one a go.
I wish the game also had 21:9 support, however the lacking of it is understandable due to the pre-rendered nature of the product:
