NVIDIA have a new Vulkan Beta Driver out for Linux - helping DOOM Eternal on Steam Play
1 April 2020 at 10:07 pm UTC Likes: 2

The way I do it (xubuntu):

- Download the driver
- chmod +x on the package
- log into to tty1, run > sudo service lightdm stop
- launch the package, follow the instructions
- sudo service lightdm start

there you go, there's a chance you might have to do it again next time you update you kernel.

I'm getting 120+ FPS @ 1440p Ultra Nightmare settings now :) (RTX 2080)

New Steam Client Beta up with Linux updates, Valve prepping Proton 5.0-5

lejimsterI'm a bit confused. Is Doom Eternal working or not on Protom yet? Unless denuvo is supported in proton I'm guessing we will have to wait like we did with Doom?

A lot of Denuvo games work with Proton, they even corrected Denuvo-related bugs recently for Arkham Knight and Just Cause 3

subHas somebody already coined a term like greenwashing - just FOSS-related?

Fosswashing?
Openwashing?
Librewashing?
Gnuwashing?
Tuxwashing?

Take your pick! ^^

Borderlands 3, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and Ghost Recon Breakpoint out this week on Google Stadia

tmtvldoes that mean that there is a Linux version of Xenoverse 2? They should put that on Steam.

I suppose there's nothing preventing Google or the game's devs from using Wine/Proton + DXVK to run Windows games on Stadia. Xenoverse 2 is rated Gold/Platinum on ProtonDB.

Avehicle7887it doesn't mean devs are willing to release it for a normal Linux desktop (support costs, the usual distro difference excuse etc).

Let's hope the Steam Linux Runtime will get rid of that issue...

Wasn't Borderlands 3 supposed to be a 6 month Epic exclusive?!

D9VK is no more as it merges with DXVK, making DXVK a D3D 9/10/11 to Vulkan layer

With this and Wine 5.0 on the horizon we should be getting a pretty good Proton upgrade soon, eh?

TheRiddickCommon phrases or even words from the dictionary shouldn't be trademark-able, within reason.
A lot of titles of book/game series are somewhat common words or phrases. "Foundation", "Dark Material", "Call of Duty" just to name a few.
If someone, today, tried to name a book series or game "Goosebumps" (a commonely used word/expression), they would get the pants sued off them for trademark infringement and they wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

That statement makes it sound like they got bored of their own game...

Relaxing flying sim with a morphing bird 'Fugl' has a nice big update

I'll have to give it another go, it looks really cool but it was totally unplayable last time I tried it, completely unresponsive controls I could only spiral to the ground at full speed :/
