Keith Packard's video from 'LinuxConfAu 2018' talking about Virtual Reality and Linux is up

TheSHEEEPQuite honestly, I still see VR as little more than a gimmick.

I can see absolutely no breakthrough for a tech that requires you to have a rather clunky and heavy ...
i just bought a vive at christmas on second hand market (450€ it was for 1 year warranty left) and i dont think its heavy at all. i barely feel it when fighting in VR. just the cables are a mess, but this will be solved in the future.

QuoteAnd don't even get me started on most of the games made specifically for VR. Horrible stuff. Remove the VR aspect from them and what you're left with is games that wouldn't even sell on mobile because of simplicity and bad design.
maybe we have to overthink how games have to be made for VR. Its not done with the same mechanics we are used to. for example i played GORN for hours now and maybe the design is simple but it is a lot of fun, because you hack and slay with your own hands and arms. you would never think, that this game is such fun on old fashioned monitors. But ducking and strafing in real , blocking and hacking too brought me fun for hours (and its a very good exercise too )

i didn't tried fallout 4 yet, so i cant compare how fascinating it is in a "real" AAA-Game. Yet i am struggeling to make the Vive work on linux, just to see that there are no games to play in vr right now (everspace works i heared, will test this)

Insurgency: Sandstorm will have a delayed Linux (and Mac) release, story-campaign cancelled for now

nPHYN1T3I was super excited for this but after how New World Interactive "ended" the first Insurgency I won't buy their products anymore. That whole we're discontinuing support and forcing 3rd party spyware on you while breaking the game UI and adding a ton of other problems before we "leave" fiasco.

Lack of campaign is just another big nail in the coffin that says they can't hold things together, deliver what they promise and that they have serious direction issues.

i still play insurgency from time to time, and i mentioned nothing like you wrote above.
what do you mean? What did i miss?

A quick fix for the bug, not be shown ingame is , to set the "crash_handler" in /steamapps/common/dayonfinfamy/ to NOT executable.
Works with insurgency too.
