Paladins, the team-based shooter seems to work well with Steam Play
21 January 2019 at 9:38 pm UTC

PatolaSome people are saying that if you get the EAC DLLs of Paladins and use it in other EAC games (overwriting their version), the game starts working under Linux. Maybe it works for the Darwin Project?

Interesting. Do you have any report of someone making that work with dead by daylight ?

Big improvement from the previous benchmark. I'm surprised my old hardware seems to still be relevant.

Running Project_Borealis-Vulkan_Lowend.sh results in a UNreal engine crash.

Just to let you know, I'd love a key. Looks like a game with lots of potential.

minidouI shouldn't ?
Of course not.

QuoteNext year, if you are using either Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS, you will be prompted to upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. For normal release users, this upgrade should happen with the release of 17.10.

As a result of this decision there will no longer be a separate GNOME flavor of Ubuntu. The development teams from both Ubuntu GNOME and Ubuntu Desktop will be merging resources and focusing on a single combined release, that provides the best of both GNOME and Ubuntu.
You should upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04
Oh well. It's actually Ubuntu 18.04 (vanilla), but with the gnome session. My bad.

minidouCommunity based survey integrated into steam could be enough of an improvement. Would help a lot the devs so they know what can be tested for whitelisting, too.

Imagine, you try a game with proton, once you close it you get a popup to rate your experience 1-5.
Then you can compile stats on steam website "this game has 83% review with proton". Or even better, in the client "this game has 27% rate with proton for users with a similar system".
Great idea! But... Are you really using Ubuntu GNOME right now?

I shouldn't ?

NeptNutzQUESTION: Once this goes stable, what's to stop every desktop gamer jumping to Linux, especially with bright new horizons like Mesa 18, RADV, and Linux completely smacking the pants off Windows with the new Threadripper?

Anti cheat softwares.

No wonder Wine and DXVK are doing great recently.

QuoteThey will enable many more titles as progress on it all continues.

It is possible to try other games too :

Quoteenthusiast users are also able to try playing non-whitelisted games using an override switch in the Steam client

There's also a much welcomed GRAPHICS DRIVERS QUICKSTART to help setup vulkan and DXVK on other distros.
