Splitgate gets an extended Beta, developers raise $10M

Quoting: Phlebiac
Quoting: MayeulCThe portals are interesting. I think they had this as some point in Quake World?

Weren't there some in Quake3 Arena?

Quoting: MayeulCI hope they can put out the fire from their servers before every other big game company starts to copy the concept.

I haven't seen mention of how they plan to monetize - are they selling cosmetic items?

They sell in-game currency, called Splitcoins, which can be used to buy cosmetics.

Proton GE gets some big updates but you may need to remove old Wine prefixes

Quoting: TriasOut of curiosity - will deleting and reinstalling the game will be enough?

No, because the game's files and the gane's Proton prefix are not stored in the same directory. If something is wrong with the prefix, nothing that happens to the game installation directory will have any affect on the prefix.

Wolfenstein - Blade of Agony Chapter 3 gets a teaser, overhauled Chapter 1 & 2 coming

Quoting: PlintslîchoWow, this looks amazing! I wasn't aware of this mod at all.

Quoting: aFoxNamedMorrisIt is not necessary to use WINE. You can play natively by dropping the game's .ipk3 into ~/.config/gzdoom and simply starting it by selecting it from GZDoom's game selector.

Seems like it's not that easy. Apparently, an old version of gzdoom is needed to run the game. I hope that they make the mod compatible with more up-to-date versions of gzdoom with the new chapter. :-)

Judging by the videos, they did a great job, nonetheless!

Ah, I see. I stand corrected! I shall edit my original post to reflect this.

Quoting: PendragonI just downloaded the Windows standalone package of Ch. 1 & 2 ... it seems like it runs great on WINE using Lutris.. just have to figure out how to keep my mouse restricted to one viewport

edit: d'oh of course.. had to set it so my other monitors 'power off' during play.. solves the problem

It is not necessary to use WINE. You can play natively by dropping the game's .ipk3 into ~/.config/gzdoom and simply starting it by selecting it from GZDoom's game selector.

EDIT: It turns out that the game is not compatible with the latest GZDoom, so it does not currently work native under Linux unless you acquire or compile an older build. Thanks, @Plintslîcho for making me aware of this!

You mean like Simula?
