dosbox-staging, a 'soft' forking of DOSBox to work on advanced features has a first release

Hopefully this will better coordinate all the efforts from different DOSBOX variants into a single branch, and perhaps a prebuilt deb release for lazy Ubuntu folks like me?

I use this at the moment and has MT-32 support via munt.

It's a little like a cat-ified version of SimCopter, added to wishlist.

Played a demo of this at EGX 2018, as I really enjoyed Endless Ocean (Wii) back in the day, and this shows a lot of promise!

Is there anyway to force Steam to download the Windows version of a game (911 Operator), rather than a broken and now unsupported Linux version?

I tried to do this via SteamCMD, which I managed to force download it, but as soon as I launch the Steam Client, it does an update and download the Linux version.

Oddly satisfying to launch SimCity 4 directly from Steam Linux after force whitelisting. I know it's been gold status in Wine for ages, but just click and play without any messing about is great.

Now if I can just get the A-train games to work I'm golden :D

Last Black Friday in November the wheel costs £129.99 at Amazon and Currys. Currys even did a bundle with the gear shift for an extra £30 (by memory).

It's now £180+, blimey that shot up!

Riskers, the game inspired by classic GTA & Hotline Miami arrives on Linux

Looking forward to the patch, as of right now the game just crash to desktop for me when I try clicking on New Game in the main menu.

SimAirport allows you to design, build, and manage every aspect of an airport & now Linux supported

Been playing this and really enjoying it! The developers are very active responding to threads, release near daily updates on the Edge branch to test new features and fixes, and been very supportive on the Linux threads.

I just wish more developers take this approach.

In case if anyone pre-ordered this via Games Republic (which has now shut), the developer has transferred them to the Humble Store.
