I just bought 7 copies 3 weeks ago for our youthcentre.

i mean, they donate to open source projects, thats fine. but is this the only reason to buy system76?

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

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

Well Linux-native VR titles (both OpenGL and Vulkan) worked for quite some time, we even maintain a list here:

Now, Windows VR games are another story. So far, these are running fine for me (or have been a week ago):
- Beat Saber (is on the official Proton compatibility list)
- Star Trek: Bridge Crew
- Star Wars Droid Repair Bay
- Far Space VR
- Budget Cuts

I do intend to buy and test more games shortly, but it's looking *very* promising at the moment!

BUdget Cuts works fine for you? You tested it some levels or just the very entry of the game? I don't see any robots when i try to start the game and comparing it with the i am not the only one.

Hot on the heels of the latest release of the Vulkan API, DXVK 0.90 is now out with Stream Output support

Yeah! Now i only have to wait till this get implemented in Proton, and than i can finally play a whole bunch of vr-games under linux. like gorn, holopoint, budget cuts.... dreams really come true!

Valve have updated the Beta of Steam Play which fixes VR games, fullscreen improvements and more

i see no change in VR since the new proton. Games that ran before are still running, games that didn't start before now don't start either. Would be interesting, if someone has other experiences.

Valve are already pushing ahead with updates to Steam Play's Proton with a beta channel
25 August 2018 at 4:53 pm UTC

With the Beta all tested VR-Games (Budget Cuts, King Graffiti, Holopoint, Gorn, Onward, TheLab, Rick&MOrty) dont even start anymore.

Valve's Steam Play should work better today, as DXVK was left in debug mode causing a performance drop

i really like the new steamplay , but my favorite games dont work, because of the old wine they're using, i asume. hope they will upgrade soon
