Happy birthday GOL. Thanks for being a great daily read.

Half-Life: Alyx support for Linux aiming to arrive with Vulkan support post-release
18 March 2020 at 4:47 pm UTC

Quoting: kusochiWoah! Is this the first Source 2 game with Vulkan?


This is great news, and makes me even happier that I nabbed an Index (which gets you a complimentary copy of HL:A) in the latest batch, knowing that I can play on launch day.

Psyonix are ending support for Rocket League on both Linux and macOS (updated)

Oh good, they're still supporting Windows 7. An operating system which recently lost support from its actual developer. :D

But seriously, as a daily player I am crying internally.

Some thoughts on Linux gaming in 2019, an end of year review

QuoteWe're still small, we are a niche market and we're going to remain that way likely for some time.

What, if anything, do you think will move the needle in this regard?

I can see SteamPlay 2.0 causing an increase in our marketshare on Steam's hardware survey, but only if the number of AAA "Whitelist" games is increased dramatically, updated regularly, and marketed widely. It seems like so many PC gamers are completely unaware of how easy it is to have a near-complete experience on Linux these days. So far it doesn't look like Valve is ready to do those things, and is content to work in the background to improve the underlying technology, so I think we'll stay where we are for the near future.

Thanks for another good year of content Liam, and best wishes to all for the festive season.

Is this game working on Linux with the Steam Controller yet? It wasn't recognised last time I tried to play. Shame as it looks spectacular.

It's so heartening to see Feral stick with porting for us through all the changes that are taking place in the Linux and wider PC platform. Proton, Stadia etc are all disruptive to their business model but the proof is in the pudding, it's still worth porting the odd big game.

Thanks Feral!

You may want to hold off on Linux Kernel 5.3 and systemd 243 if you use a gamepad

Quoting: FaalhaasThis new systemd messed me up as well. I have to do a sudo modprobe uinput to get the Steam Controller working in-game.

Even after that, some games did not detect my buttons, so I even reinstalled the OS. Now it's working with modprobe.

Was one of those games Rocket League by any chance? The modprobe command didn't seem to do anything to get my steam controller working again.

There's not many websites I check every day, but GOL is one of them!

Big congrats to the GOL team on a wonderful resource for Linux gamers and the wider community.
