The Rocket League 'Tournaments Update' is now out, official GOL tournament info

nitroflowThey still need to add profile picture to the report options because there are some pretty nasty people out there with some pretty nasty profile pictures. Happened to me once with a premade team of idiots with burner accounts and had to resort to hunting down the steam profiles for it to be properly reported.

You should report these through steam directly - here.

Anyway, signed up and ready!

XCOM 2 for Linux has been updated, also there's a new XCOM 2 Collection
2 February 2018 at 11:06 am UTC

BarbariandudeI'm very confident the update was about the AMD issues for XCOM 2: War of the Chosen that I've been going back and forth with them about for a few weeks now. Their devs discovered my crash was due to "export MESA_NO_ERROR=1" in an environment configuration bash file. After finding the workaround for me, they told me they'd work on a patch to fix that problem for everybody; this is probably that patch.

Yup, correct, it has that fix - For what it's worth Mesa had the bug report here a while back, the fix had been live but had to be reversed due to unrelated complications.

The patch does also have many other fixes though, including changes to be in sync with the Windows updates.

Planet Nomads drops plans to have co-op and multiplayer

Worth noting Subnautica has been successful with this model, though I get the impression they may still add MP some time in the future.

Mesa has a few more games in the threaded OpenGL whitelist as of today

ShmerlDoes glthread use all available cores, or it's limited to certain number of threads?

IIRC it only offloads the driver work to a second thread, GL is still basically a single command queue so there's not a huge amount more than can be done in the driver.

If anyone isn't at the event but is nearby Cambridge then feel free to come to the beer festival afterwards and say hi

There's going to be a Vulkan event in the UK, Feral Interactive & Croteam will be attending

FWIW while there's limited space for the talks, the beer festival is open to all afterwards!

The talks will be pretty hardcore dev focussed anyway (but will be uploaded afterwards), so if you're more interested in saying hi to devs then come on down to the festival instead.

Mesa now has a shader cache in Mesa-git for r600/radeonsi
23 February 2017 at 9:05 am UTC

eldersnakeWell Deus Ex: MD certainly loads a bit quicker. And now a cache folder with about 70MB worth of stuff has been created in my /tmp/cache folder (I have the mesa cache flag set to put the cache there, not sure if its totally necessary).

Quick note - /tmp will get trashed on a reboot, depending on how your tmpfs is set up, so if you want to keep those fast load times across reboots you might wanna move it to disk somewhere
