The latest Steam Client Beta should fix downloads and updates on Linux
4 November 2016 at 1:24 am UTC Likes: 1

ElectricPrismI should dig my Dual Shock 4 out of the car and see if it's improved enough to replace my X360 for FPS.

Did it work for you? I've been trying it since the first beta, but the DS4 controllers just stop working when I set Steam to recognize them as such.

The latest Steam Client Beta has sorta broken downloads and updates for some Linux users

For anyone having this issue, please consider taking the time to post in this Steam Bug Report thread and hope Valve check it in a timely manner..

Using Nvidia's NVENC with OBS Studio makes Linux game recording really great

Yes! I was finally able to use nvenc under OBS and it was totally worth the effort..

Seriously, I never though it would be possible to get this footage from an i5, but this article made it possible

Thank you very much for this!

The latest Steam Client Beta adds native support for the PS4 Dual Shock Controller
1 November 2016 at 3:54 pm UTC

AimelaWell, I tried this in my Arch Linux install and it doesn't seem to work. When I enable the option for it and reconnect the controller, it no longer becomes recognized by Steam and won't control the BPM interface until I turn the option off and and reconnect the controller again. Seems like it may be an issue with the Steam client that will require Valve to fix it.

Same under Ubuntu 16.04 *sigh*.. The "good" news is that it also stopped working under bluetooth (which means it is recognized as a PS4 controller that way), so this could be just a missing kernel rule (or unloaded rule, considering the fact that I haven't yet restarted my machine after updating Steam) just like the Steam Controller initially required.

I'll report back is I find something interesting after work..

Coincidentally, I just uploaded 2 videos with some gameplay if anyone is interested in taking a look in how it plays:

Vanguard Princess, a popular 2D fighting game is now on Linux & SteamOS

In case anyone is having problems with the Steam Controller, is because the Steam Overlay doesn't work in this game (regardless of version apparently).. A quick solution would be to add a the controller remap template to an activator button in the Desktop config (I have this done with the RB as activator, being the mapped RB/LB assigned to the grips).

The incredibly cool looking first-person adventure game 'Valley' looks like it's heading to Linux

So many good games.. So little time and money to get them all..

The Linux gaming status has changed so dramatically in the last few years, that my wallet has been increasingly feeling it even though I abandoned console gaming altogether half a year ago!

That said, I'll give this game a try once it arrives!

Aspyr Media are teasing something to come in three days time (updated)

Well, apparently the whole thing ended being nothing more than hot air:

In more interesting news however Layer of Fear is $8! . . . in the same link . . . which I accidentally bought . . . again.. (if someone is interested in an extra Steam key of that game, contact me through a PM)

Planet Nomads looks incredible and it's officially coming to Linux this month

And now I feel like an a**hole for spending $60 on the GOG version of NMS (even though in all fairness the game runs perfectly under WINE with Steam overlay integration and a Steam Controller)..

Oh well.. At least it will keep me occupied until this game arrives!

Overlord, Overlord: Raising Hell and Overlord II (new port!) released on Steam for Linux
26 July 2016 at 4:54 pm UTC

Aaaaand . . . nope.

A ~120MB download for the first OL, followed by a missing executable.. not so unexpected considering the vp installer size was ~2GB..

Also 0b downloads when trying the other 2.

Don't buy from Steam (yet)..

Edit: Just to be clear, I bought the classic pack for $20 like half an hour before posting, AFTER it had a SteamOS icon added. Also, still nothing but if something changes, I will edit this as soon as I notice.

Edit 2: Overlord 1 is working now, gamepad support included.. Didn't have time to try the 2nd, but it was also downloading 2GB so I assume it's also working fine.. Kudos to VP for a very good and stable port!
