The excellent SC Controller project adds Bluetooth support

DoctorJunglistHas anyone figured out a way to make the Steam controller work for Wine gaming? I tried it with the SC Controller driver, but the button mappings are messed up (at least in Tekken 7).

dumbxinput <- I'm using this (or perhaps a variation of it). Works for The Witcher 3 & Darksiders Warmastered Edition, at least. Haven't tried much else yet.

Edit: in combination with the SC Controller

Civilization VI: Rise and Fall expansion arrives on Linux tomorrow (actually out now)

beko…is platform cross playing sorted out?

from Aspyrs' blog:
QuoteQ: Civilization VI: Why no Mac/Linux cross platform multiplayer yet with Windows? Where’s Rise & Fall?

A: We have been working since launch to support cross-platform multiplayer. Unfortunately we’ve faced some daunting game breaking bugs which have resulted in much more development effort for all teams and cross-platform multiplayer delays. We truly want to bring this feature to our audience and appreciate everyone’s patience. You’ll be the first to know when a fix has been implemented, approved and deemed prime time ready.

Rise and Fall for Mac and Linux is still in development. We’re looking at late March/early April for their release.

FeralCongratulations @IOInteractive and @HITMAN! You've always been one of our favourite partners. We look forward to many more hits to come.

KeyrockQuick, someone from Feral send IO Interactive a congratulatory encouraging tweet... and a nice card... and a batch of delicious cookies.


The various games ported to us under Square Enix banner would imply Ferals' good relations are with them. That tweet implies more direct relations with the studios.
The wait and see approach is most fitting now, I believe

Obsidian and Paradox team up for new RPG called Tyranny and it's coming to Linux

soulsourceWait, weren't the Obsidian developers cautious about any new Linux releases? I remember something about it not being worthwhile and such....

They clarified later on that since they've now got the know-how, giving linux support isn't such an ordeal as it was the first time around.

Certainly wasn't expecting this, a guaranteed buy!

I'd kill two individuals of EAs' choosing to get BioWare titles, as well as SW:Battlefront on Linux.
Your loss EA.
