Following the footsteps on Fallout and Wasteland, ATOM RPG Trudograd is out now
16 September 2021 at 6:30 am UTC

There is a Russian voice over pack for the original ATOM RPG. Its a shame they can't just hire a team to do a English voiceover dlc, I wouldn't even mind paying $5 or $10 for such a thing. (and for original game)

what engine is it using? looks like valves engine or something.

Zink driver for OpenGL over Vulkan adds more game support like Metro: Last Light

AMDGPU's generally have a good OpenGL implementation now also. Thought I haven't testing much OGL games recently and I do have a 6800XT atm so its kind of expected to perform well.

Been using this with xanmod kernel for a while. It mostly works but there are some games that don't like it and will refuse to launch. Mostly older 32bit games.

100 million for a f2p game¿

Is it a micro-transaction hellscape game?

Wine development release 6.17 is out with continued work for the GDI syscall interface
11 September 2021 at 12:43 am UTC

Can anyone list some specific use cases for this GDI system? do games even benefit or is this more of a application thing? (which is ok imo, applications under wine are always finicky)

PS4 emulator Spine gets a new demo release

Quoting: SpykerA bit too shady for me to test it now.
I'll wait until it's properly open-sourced.

Just run it inside a container or whatever people use for security these days. I don't really do this myself as I only use a very specific selection of software atm, but it should prevent the app from backdooring into your real filesystem. (assuming they'd do something like that, which I'd highly doubt)

Also I wonder how this works since allot of PS4 titles required updating online to play; I guess that can work if it connects to a PS4 account but no doubt Sony would ban any attempts at online multiplayer.

It's a shame really that Sony doesn't endorse such projects; it be nice to see a Sony Online store for PC and Linux just like how Microsoft has captured so many people with their Xbox Game Pass for PC deal. Which btw is blocked from running under Linux... walled gardens are just crap imo!

With the level of telemetry data hoovering going on under Windows OS's, NOBODY should be paying for the stupid OS! NOBODY!

War Thunder has another major upgrade out with 'Direct Hit'

Quoting: BrisseIt's by design and very deliberate. It's how they make money. To be frank, IMO it's a disgusting business model.

I'd be more ok with it as a f2p model if it wasn't just price gouging on dubious returns. You pay $60usd for a tank, just a tank, or plane... its just a giant ripoff really. Meanwhile the Russians pay like 1/4th that price....

Just not interested in such tactics any more; even world of tanks is/was more reasonable.

Clearing up what games will and won't run on the Steam Deck

I heard VAC doesn't work either via proton, but I don't know which games use that. (counterstrike?)

Haven't played this for months. Kind of got tired of the grind; I do have premium vehicles but without the premium account it just takes too much time to even earn silver in this game to afford all the new vehicles.

Doubt it will ever change.
