Quoting: CyrilHow about its support outside Steam?
It comes up as a /dev/js* controller and all the buttons work as you'd expect. No gyro or touchpad though

Quoting: 0aTTThe PC is replaced by tablets and phones.
Definitly not for gaming. The mobile market is full of shallow cash grabs and most people know that console/pc are where quality games are released

The Hacker bots pretty much only target the official servers so community servers are the way to go by far.

Linux distro Fedora 33 may get DXVK as the default for Wine

Quoting: Alm888Sure, I can "blacklist", uninstall and purge everything, but if Fedora goes down the "fork-path" it will hinder upstream improvements even more so (than wine-staging).
DXVK is definitely not a fork in any way, maybe you're getting mixed up with proton? The proposal page even outlines how you would blacklist the package in case you didn't already know:
QuoteUsers would be able to opt-out from using DXVK by adding 'exclude=wine-dxvk*' into /etc/dnf/dnf.conf and removing wine-dxvk package.

Quoting: Alm888I do not need DXVK in any way or form. Yet, I am (or will be) forcefully fed it from F33 onward
All they're doing is making wine-dxvk a recommended package for wine. Literally just blacklist the package no one is forcing you to use anything. This is a change to give the average user who may not even know about dxvk better compatibility/performance out of the box, if you don't want it you can just not use it.

Quoting: Alm888The last thing I want in the distro I use is some 3rd-party fork instead of upstream version. Otherwise WINE won't have any patches from Fedora anymore, as (rumor has it) DXVK does not play nice with WINE, outright conflicting with its libraries.
DXVK is just dll files. Theres no patch or fork required

Valve moves on from OpenVR, goes all-in with OpenXR for SteamVR
25 June 2020 at 8:06 pm UTC

Now developers can just target OpenXR instead of having to maintain both SteamVR (OpenVR) and Oculus (OVR) modes. It should make cross compatibility between standalone headsets much better as well because right now they all use their own apis. has a huge bundle going to support 'Racial Justice and Equality'

The bundle is worth it for Night in the Woods alone imo that game never goes on sale. The fact that it's going to a good cause just makes it even better :D

Finally! We've been bottlenecked by a 32-bit os for too long. I just hope theyre making good progress on that vulkan driver.
