DiRT 4 is officially coming to Linux, port from Feral Interactive

I have the feeling that now that feral have ported a couple of games with vulkan/metal the amount of ports is increasing again

DXVK 0.93 is out, helping out Dark Souls III, Overwatch and a new config option for shader compiling

sublet's be honest, most people won't wait for Feral.
Grab the Autumn sale discount at give it a go.
The port is announced for 2019.

Yes, I honestly feel sorry for Feral.
And considering Twitter posts by some of their devs,
they're quite worried about Steamplay/Proton. :/
As much as I value Feral's work, having to wait a year or so for a port when a bunch don't get cross-platform online play I completely understand why some won't wait. I hope Feral don't stop, as their work is fantastic but they will need to find a way to get ports out quicker. At least they seem to be announcing sooner now, so that's a good start.
For me personally there are more native games then I have time to play.
I used Proton/WINE for a couple of games that I played long before I started using linux, for example world of Warcraft and Starcraft2. I consider myself a casual gamer and when I have the choice between proton/wine game or a supported port by Feral I choose Feral port always.
The games I played with wine/DXVK, there have been no games that didn't require some sort of tweaking before it worked properly.
With Feral ports I've never encountered any big issues. Pres play and your ready to go. That feral games like total war have no multiplayer with Windows is not a problem for me. The multiplayer in Total war feels for me like a niche option anyways.

I bought the game and did a quick benchmark on my laptop with an 1060 Nvidia card with graphics set on high.

51fps in battle benchmark
62fps in campaign benchmark
54,6 in skaven benchmark

The game appears to run great!

Thanks for the port Feral!

RedjeWhen was the first GOL hardware survey?
Is once every 2 years not to long for the drop off?
It doesn't matter when the first was, that has no relevance on the drop-off.

The monthly data is gathered from what people have currently and honestly, who upgrades their PC multiple times a year? The answer is likely a minority of people and they are more likely to actually update their info here as well.
I agree with you that it is not useful for hardware info.
But on the other hand people who use Linux change their distro more often.
Maybe change the drop-off for distro's to like 1 year or 6 months perhaps?

Stardock CEO asking to see interest in Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation on Linux with Vulkan

I really like this game, it reminds me of starcraft2. I'm gonna buy it when it releases for Linux.

Canonical drop the Unity desktop environment for Ubuntu favour of going back to GNOME

I like the idea of new linux tech site, I hope you can make it more casual compared to phonorix .

I have mixed feeling about ubuntu dropping unity, altho unity7 has issues, I like the simplicity that it has.
The casual people that I showed Ubuntu most of the time like it more then other distro's because of the simplicity.

I hope Ubuntu 18.04 will keep the unity7/8 feeling. Imho it's important for ubuntu to keep its simplicity.

I have tested this on my system:
This are the results for me with nvidia 760 card and driver 378.13
Hollow Point: 67,66FPS openGL - 118,41FPS vulkan + 75,01%
Stronghold : 30,91FPS openGL - 73,49FPS vulkan +137,75%
Hope, Glory : 70,43FPS openGL - 103,44FPS vulkan + 46,87%
Landmover : 89,35FPS openGL - 126,95FPS vulkan + 42,08%

So far the game seems stable for me.

Thanks you Feral!
