Quoting: robvv
Quoting: RafiLinuxPicked up the GOG version. The offline installer is behind and not working properly. Someone already posted about it on the GOG forums. If it's not patched by Friday, I'm afraid I will have to ask for refund. Demo was fun but day 1 launch issues is something I'm just not OK with.

The Steam version has been updated several times since release and the devs seem fairly responsive in the Steam forums, though the Dark Souls kidz whining about how Hellpoint isn't Dark Souls do lower the quality of discussion. Might be worth replacing your GOG version with the Steam version. You can even make it DRM-free by dropping the Goldberg emulator in there!
Ha, how is it not Dark Souls? The only thing I've even noticed different in the gameplay is sometimes the 'souls' that drop are dropped as little cubes, which you keep if you die. Other than that, the gameplay and even the level design seems very similar.

This is so crazy to me, why would anyone not have their Discord notifications turned off permanently?
As soon as you are on pretty much ANY server, you'll just get constant ding-ding-ding noises. Doesn't allow any kind of activity without constantly being interrupted.

I mean, hey, at least it's not the ICQ-Oh-Oh!.
I had some sort of PTSD from that for many years..... Like I'd wake up thinking someone messaged me, but they hadn't... it was terrible.

Quoting: WorMzyCan't play for long with keyboard and mouse because the camera can only move ~720 degrees before it stops going in that direction.

Had good fun playing with a Steam controller though, doesn't seem to have the same issues.
Much like the Dark Souls games this is clearly modeled after. It seems to be made to be played with a gamepad.

System76 are teasing their own brand Keyboard again

Quoting: fleskTwo things I really dislike on standard keyboards:
  • Windows key

  • Caps Lock key

Awesome thing about the Roccat keyboards, the Capslock is moved to a place where you have to hold down another key to press a key to enable it. Granted, like anything else on those keyboards, you can change where it is assigned.

I am kind of a keyboard nut, so I will most likely pick one of these up. Surprised they don't do what Roccat does and just have firmware inside the keyboard that gets flashed by the software config. It has been useful there, as I can move keyboard or mouse to another computer and not lose any function.

Quoting: EikeI'm on 450.57 on Debian stable (using Debian packages). Yes, I absolutely couldn't resist. :-)
Did you use debtap?

Erm, no, I'm using Debian...
(I had to mention because I always hear how Debian is behind. :-) )
Still prefer Debian after all these years. It just works, is unassuming in that they don't try to push things on you, and overall is one of the most stable, even if you use unstable!

Somehow so many distributions have been built upon it, trying to make it better in one way or another, but most of them have inevitably failed.

The only one so far that has managed to successfully spawn off of it is Ubuntu, but they are again trying to do un-debian things, so a lot of people are switching.

I got a bunch of glitches from light sources on it, seemed to be better when I maxed out some things and changed AA, but not sure exactly which setting it was yet, figured I'd try in Arch with latest drivers... and then I got sidetracked purchasing a ThinkVision P44w-10....

Quoting: Liam Dawe
Quoting: Nick_AvemLooks pretty neat. Does anyone know whether it is using Vulkan or OpenGl?
Vulkan, at least from the GOG version, not tested the Steam build.
Can confirm Steam version uses Vulkan (at least I assume 'creating vulkan shaders' is an indicator that it does). About to start playing!

Designed for big-screen TV gaming, the SteamOS-like 'GamerOS' has a new release

Quoting: MohandevirPlagman was quite clear that they were seriously considering an alternative to Debian. SteamOS 2.0 is based on Debian 8, which is now eol and SteamOS 3.0 (Debian 9) was never released:

https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/seems-valve-do-intend-to-go-back-to-steamos-at-some-point.16291

Seems quite indicative to me:
"I wouldn't expect much more movement on Debian-based Brewmaster at this point, however."
That was one guy who more or less ranted that he didn't like .deb packaging.
Wasn't quite clear that whatever team they have working on it agreed.

Also, I thought they had a beta on 9 or 10?
