What's the difference between your method of wrapping and say for example a Lutris install ? Could the two be merged or am i missing something.

Wouldn't it be great if at least older GOG Linux titles shipped as flatpack with your script work having set the correct wine version, configs and other libs. That way games could be bought and run with one click without the need for as much external work and user input.

The FPS 'Insurgency: Sandstorm' has a new teaser trailer

liamdaweAre you excited for it?

Yes and no. It looks graphically great, but im kind of tired of desert storm based conflicts in games.One sided hackneyed formulas that have been done to death.

That said, Il probably buy it if the reviews are good.

Microsoft is rumoured to be looking to buy Valve, EA and others

I am generally curious when the world is going to realize that unregulated wild-west markets do not work, and the economy needs meaningful competition to function... *sigh*

Careful there Kimy before the free-marketeers storm the thread



(Not taking any particular side btw)

Realistic racing game 'DRAG' coming to Linux soon, built on Linux and it looks astonishing

ThorstenFolkersHi guys,

thanks for the feedback!

Will there be other vehicles than the one buggy type, like racing trucks ? What about skins ?



Spoiler, click me
(also will there be hats)

The 'GPD Win 2' could be an interesting device for Linux gaming on the go

i need this thing but i don't need this thing.

So cool that Linux works ootb with very little tweaks needed. It's getting easier for people to say that Linux just works and harder for people to say Windows just works.

Nice write up. Remember playing this on triple monitors the easy setting of resolution and FOV was a plus.

Steam hits another record of over 18.5 million concurrent users online

TheRiddickFor a company making crazy amounts of money, you'd think they could hire a army of programmers and problem solvers at least short term to sort out the performance issues and porting it to Linux

In theory given recent developments wouldn't it be possible to hire a few people to test & bundle up dozens if not hundreds of DX9/DX10 games in a Wine flatpack ? where all the dependencies are met and working without any extra configuration required. Just download and run as a normal steam application through the client.
There shouldn't be any licensing problems with that either and there technically still windows applications sold through steam just for Linux. Im surprised GOG hasn't done this yet or at least played with the idea.

Quote... They must be spending a fair bit on blow and hookers or something... a common developer success trap.

From what i have seen of their offices it would more likely be Sweets and energy drinks.

imagine what Valve could do if they used some of that money to really give SteamOS a push.
Maybe Steam will release SteamOS 2 when VR is more mature on Linux. That would be called SteamOSVR or VROS .. or because it's gen one VR... Steam 'V1R0S'

VK9, the project to get Direct3D 9 applications to run with Vulkan reached another milestone

neowiz73I'm surprised VK9 isn't in the list for apps for favorite FOSS project.

And yet early on i saw some people ( not on this forum ) claim it was a waste of time
