The Steam Play whitelist just had a large update including The Witness and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
11 October 2018 at 12:29 pm UTC

NanobangI mean, it's nice that they linked the steamdb changes, but why wouldn't they update their own list proper and just use that?

You have it backwards - SteamDB is merely reporting changes made in Steam/Valve repositories, it is not a repository in itself. In other words, SteamDb is showing the changes they made to "their own list proper", just in a more convenient format for the general public.

Hi wintermute! Thanks for the correction. When I wrote about "the steamdb changes" I guess I was being lazy, using a shorthand. I was thinking about how steamdb changes because the information it is reporting changes. Maybe it would have been better written as something like, "... it's nice that they linked their expanded whitelist as reflected in the steamdb ...."

I appreciate your jumping in to help me, it's these acts of kindness that make the Linux community a---capital "C"---Community.

Is there a second official Steam Whitelist somewhere besides the original one? Or are they just not bothering to update their whitelist. I mean, it's nice that they linked the steamdb changes, but why wouldn't they update their own list proper and just use that? Am I missing something?

This niggle aside, it IS good to see evidence that the Steam crew are testing games.

dibzBetter .Net support would be HUGE for Wine, it's the bane of any linux user's winesperience. That and old windows kernel-level DRM, anyway.

Bonus XP for the word "winesperience."


Turn-based tactical RPG 'Vigilantes' to leave Early Access on Thursday
1 October 2018 at 12:08 pm UTC

I've been looking forward to the final release of this game for so long now that I don't entirely remember what it's even about. Vigilantes, apparently. Still, looking forward to this one coming out of Early access at last. Gonna kill me some criminals.

Lutris 0.4.20 is now out, to help you manage all your games plus some Overwatch testing

liamdaweTruthfully, I've not always had a great experience with Lutris. The interface needs a lot of work to make it more friendly ...

Same here. In fact, though I've no interest in making videos, I nevertheless seriously considered making one of me trying to use Lutris, so the devs could see what a confusing morass the UI was for a (or at least this) uninitiated user.

PlayOnLinux has a new alpha release out with an overhaul of the interface

I'm glad to see PoL is still alive and, if not kicking, twitching. This project was what opened Wine gaming up for me (almost a decade ago? Sheesh) and has a place in my heart because of that. I've never found much use for its scripts, but it was, and is, an excellent Wine management tool. Kudos PoL people!

The latest Steam Client Beta has some fixes for Steam Play, Steam Link improvements and so on

liamdaweYeah, we've been without the feature for a long time now I do wonder why it's not in.

You're too nice. We've been without the feature from forever. I wonder if Valve isn't waiting on something magical from Vulkan or some such. Whatever their reasons, my countenance darkens and I glower every time I think about it. Nah, I'm joking. I don't glower.

Another well written little peek behind the Linux community curtains. I love articles like this. Great job señor. Dawe.

Game store itch releases a brand new client, plus a small interview
12 September 2018 at 1:45 pm UTC

I think this,this is the Itch client I've been waiting for all these years!

First off, the default font is like an newly-tattooed, overweight girl in a beauty pageant: large, lovely, and legible. I still can't customize the font size, but pff, it can be read, and that's what writing's all about.

Additionally, I can point it to where I keep my games (on a data drive) and completely remove it from my ~/.config.

Lastly, the dark interface remains dark on all pages. It used to be dark on the home page, but turn eye wrenchingly bright white on the "Explore" pages. Is this simply because the itch client is using my GTK theme? (Materia Dark ftw!) If not, although I adore this deep dark delectable look, I hope they'll FUCKIN' AY it's about time!!

Hell, now I might actually start playing the games I have from XD
