Quoting: stan
Quoting: LinasI really don't get why people spend so much energy supporting a platform that is so anti-gaming like macOS.
Many Windows users are probably thinking the same thing about Linux.
Although the reason for that might be pure ignorance and/or arrogance. If you just mention Linux some "gamers" just turn away.

I was once assassinated for creating a socialist utopia bare of any problems but rich in personal freedom and culture. The right wing opposition had rather had a worse life instead. Walls are raised in people's minds first...

I'm curious what the new version has to offer and if that justifies a purchase.

What are you clicking on this weekend and what do you think about it?

Quoting: g000hSkyrim Special Edition - A little more testing. It works, but not the NPC audio (which is quite important to enjoy the game).
I have the same issue, but music doesn't work either. Maybe I'm missing some obscure package...

Quoting: FeistI´m playing "Prey" (2006) the great oldie that works spendid with Steam Play [..]
Did you know that there's a native version of Prey awaiting you, done by Ryan Gordon? Works splendid, even on Intel IGPs.

And everything else works as intended? What about screen rotation (I know Gnome can do this out of the box)? If all works then this will be my next notebook. ^_^

Quoting: GustyGhostI had to jump through flaming hoops and drag my rear through a thousand miles of glass shards to get my hands on a Raven Ridge (35W).
Made me laugh heartily.
Quoting: hummer010That hasn't been my recent experience with Raven Ridge (I've got an HP Envy x360 with a 2500u). I don't think I've had a lockup since I started using 4.18. I'm rolling my own kernel to get the touchscreen working, but I haven't made any changes specific to Ryzen or Vega.
How did you configure your kernel or what patches did you apply to make it work? I fancy buying a HP Envy x360, too but haven't been aware of touchscreen problems.

I'd love to check it out on my Kaby Lake U, should run easily. Last port fromm Icculus I tried on this system is Prey, which runs like a charm.

You can now pre-order the Linux-powered Atari VCS games console, a lot more details revealed

Inches are imperial either. ;) Welcoome to modern Europe. :D For anything else I love occult imperial measures, like e. g. ounces per cup (for density). :P

Nevertheless this console is outdated. I'm surprised AMD still delivers these APUs. Nothing for me - I'd rather have an NUC from AMD. That would be great.

Quoting: rea987
Quoting: Jewgeni Filippowitsch IwanowskiSince it has no built-in support for FullHD resolution I changed the following lines in ~/.prey/base/preyconfig.cfg

seta r_customHeight "1080"
seta r_customWidth "1920"
seta r_mode "-1"

The game supports resolutions up to 2560x1440 via .ini edit.

That's exactly what I have written... Everything okay with you?
