Strategy adventure 'Pathway' from Robotality and Chucklefish has new footage, still coming to Linux

I'm very interested, the gameplay sounds my type of thing and it looks great visually.

Open source Morrowind game engine OpenMW has a new release up

Is there yet an option to disable the bright bleak distance fog? It can be a beautiful effect when done right but I absolutely can't stand how it looks in Morrowind.

MalAnd so, one day, they will buy third party games and release them exclusively on linux. And I will be forced to stand up for the windows junkies out there. This gaming world is so messed up.

if i had the fortnite money, i would totally do it

here you have metro.... but linux exclusive for 1 year
i brought you pc master race heavy rain.... but linux exclusive for 1 year
you like factorio... here you have it in 3D, called satisfactory.... but linux exclusive for 1 year
i heard you like RDR2, here we go.... but linux exclusive for 1 year

that would be so funny... 95% pc gamers pissed off, hackers start to build windows wrappers, to make it playable on windows

Windows users excited with a new version of "LINE" so they could test what Linux games are working on windows

Linux Is Next (Windows) Emulator.

ADD: (Forgot to add comments)

Like EA plans on Halcyon. I'm believed it when I see it for real.
Or LITE = LITE Is Totally an Emulator

Epic don't have literally infinite money and the period when appearing on their store constitutes free marketing and discoverability will end as well. We'll see how they do when they run out of cheap parlor tricks. Or expensive parlor tricks, I suppose.

Unity and UE developers getting strongly incentivized to improve their Linux support is fantastic. That alone is good enough news for me.

Proton 3.16-8 beta is out for Steam Play with DXVK 1.0 and game fixes
10 March 2019 at 12:35 pm UTC


I like the fact that know proton appears as a game update


i never installed proton as a tool and now i can select 3.16-8, but DXVK wasnt 1.0
after i installed proton as a toll its DXVK 1.0
why have they changed this?
What's the easiest way to check the version of the bundled DXVK?

I've tried using dgvoodoo in conjuction with DXVK and the results were actually somewhat impressive in certain cases. For example I was able to run Nocturne in my native resolution with forced antialising and anisotropic filtering, that was pretty neat. But are there any actual cases of games that it makes playable that weren't playable before?

mylkaand again............ VULKAN graphics cards are powerful enough to translate every dx9 only game to OPENGL with 100+ FPS.

Even low end integrated GPUs support Vulkan now. Vulkan support in GPUs has nothing to do with expected performance.

i dont think someone buys an IGP and wants to play AAA 3D games, because thats also pretty hard on windows
i know a ryzen 3 can play GTA5 on windows with 720p and low settings, but if you really want to play, you need a dedicated graphics card. i was expecting, that we are on the same page here. i said "card"... a card isnt an IGP, which you normally dont use for gaming

but maybe someone has a ryzen 3 and can test dishonored on it with proton

Vega 8 / Vega 11 suffer same problem and this problem is system shared memory is too slow compared for example ddr5 64bit 6000mhz

Amd needs put for example hbm, this can fix problem of actual igps but hbm is not cheap

it isnt really a problem, because these CPUs are not meant for gaming, except you are into stardew valley, nidhogg and point and click adventures
Well, you know what they say.
Any GPU is meant for gaming if you're brave enough.

hardpenguinMeanwhile I am here with a couple of niche games using D3D8 that are currently crashing in Wine
What are your games?

I'm still waiting for an obscure DX10 game Corpse of Discovery to render correctly which it still doesn't in Wine or DXK in spite of the recent successes.

Valve is getting back to focusing on gaming, with non-gaming videos being retired

scaineI suspect this is a (or another) reason that Steam devices didn't really take off. Playstation and Xbox both allow Netflix, Spotify and others on their consoles. Why would you buy a SteamPC that doesn't support any of that. Pretty ridiculous.
dubigrasuGood thing I guess.
I feared at one point that Valve deliberately ignored having Netflix/Amazon/etc apps available on their SteamOS/Steam Machines because they tried to push their own movie store.
Can't people just use the web clients on SteamOS?

Last time I checked, Netflix through web browsers was limited to 720p. There are workarounds, but for the masses, it's a no-go. You need an officially supported Netflix client (or Microsoft Edge) to get the 1080p+ resolution.
Can you link the workarounds, for posterity?
