winepak, a project to get Windows games packaged with Wine & Flatpak for an easy Linux installation
13 June 2018 at 9:30 pm UTC

A flatpack of wine version 1.6 sounds much easier, but would it work as I expect?

Probably. I'm assuming a known to work wine version gets bundled with each game in the winepaks

Now I'm surprised. Wasn't there an Amiga(?) game with a similar name?

I couldn't say. Just remember playing it on the N64 as a kid!

KimyrielleBeing my brutally honest self...thanks, but we don't need yet another garage game on Linux. We got a few thousand of these. What's Turok anyway? What we need at this point are AAA titles. Stuff that makes people go "Wow, you Penguin people can play THAT???" Icculus is a human porting machine who can get anything ported you throw at him. His talents are completely wasted porting B list games. Again, what's Turok? Somebody go convince Bethesda or a company like it to let him have a go at their back catalog. Please?

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)
22 March 2018 at 11:51 am UTC

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.

AMD have now officially open-sourced their 'AMDVLK' Linux Vulkan driver

As far as I know my APU/dGPU laptop with a 8670M (HAINAN) doesn't have amdgpu kernel support (yet). Will have to try and see if this actually works.

IO Interactive retains the rights to HITMAN and becomes fully independent

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
