Valve just put out another (smaller) Steam Play beta version

beniwtvFor me this was quite the update!

Star Trek: Bridge Crew, which is an Ubisoft game using Uplay just started working, IN VR, everything. Still can't believe it really. Nice job everyone involved!

Have we leapfrogged the year of Linux on the desktop and jumped straight into the year of Linux VR?

EikeExperimental is not as evil as it sounds and has got 396.54 at the moment:
I did install from experimental several times and didn't run into problems.
Of course: no guarantee.

I used to run unstable/experimental in Potato/Woody times, then got older and switched to testing. Now I don't have enough time to play, not to mention tinkering, so it's stable, with backports when I want some excitement

Edit: back on the topic, Lego Batman 3 works in DX10 mode, no glitches, no black screen issues.

I hope they'll update drivers in SteamOS just as fast.
Meanwhile, Debian is stuck with 390.

Ethan Lee to put FNA into 'maintenance mode indefinitely' while working out a deal to work on Steam Play's Proton

gojulSkyrim is perfectly playable on Proton but with crackling sound. Also you need to terminate it with kill -9 as normal quit results in a zombie process.

Got the underwater bug. Applying the workaround did the trick (there's a mandatory episode underwater with the thief guild mission). Did not remark the shader bug.

This does not describe a "perfectly playable game". This describes a game with annoying issues - many people are very sensitive to audio glitches, more than to video glitches.

It's on my wishlist. I hope you'll notify us when the bug is fixed, so I can grab the game.

Some thoughts on Valve’s new Steam Play feature and what it means for Linux gaming

This raises the bar for porting companies. It's a game works well in Proton right after launch, there's no money in porting it. If a native version launched through Proton offers cross play with Windows, a native port without cross play (Feral, cough, cough) is actually a regression - should we be able to choose is we want to run a port or a Windows version through Proton?

Violent twin-stick shooter 'Hatred' is now officially out for Linux

No, just no.

I didn't play Postal when I was an angst-driven youth and I'm not going to play Hatred when I'm a happy middle aged father.

Snap! The new Minecraft launcher now has another easy way to be installed on Linux

I have installed it using snap. The launcher works, the update downloaded properly, but the game fails to start.

Asugamesworkshop! Inquisitor martyr on mac and linux please!

Considering Dawn of War II and III, then Total War: Warhammer I and II, it would be great if we had all GW-licensed games on Linux. Then Valve could release a Warhammer-branded line of Steam Machines.

Well, obviously joking, but...

Looks like SteamOS 3.0 is on the way codenamed Clockwerk

mylkadoes anyone use steamos?
I do.

I do.

The only games I play on my Debian PC are those that require or work much better with a keyboard like Hacknet or Epistory, or those broken with Steam Controller like Psychonauts.
