Set Phasers to fun! Stage 9 lets you explore the Enterprise-D from Star Trek The Next Generation on Linux

armageddon51Hum, great idea but it needs a lot of work. Remind me of years ago graphics. A bit like this game "Titanic Honor and Glory" with the Unreal engine too but no where near the exquisite graphics. There is a windows demo but sadly no Linux, yet.

And all this time in the "not so" turbo-lift.
I wouldn't be so hard on them. It's a amateur, fan made labor of love as far as I understand. I'm happy it exists....

wvstolzingNice... Can you go down inside the battle station, and detach the saucer part?
I think I saw online somewhere that you can. There's lots of fun functionality, like practicing at the phaser range or flying a shuttle out of the ship. SO excited this is coming to Linux!

SpaceBourne might see a Linux version, according to demand after release

Anyone else having graphics issues on NVIDIA since the update?

A developer from Bohemia Interactive wants to know your interest in the Arma 3 Linux port

Interested, but was waiting for a sign of more solid support than "experimental" before buying. If they're gonna back it, I'm gonna buy it...

ElvanexI freaking love this game! But sadly, I've been having crashing issues with it as well. :/ Hopefully they get it fixed soon.
They replied to me, apparently it's an issue with the NVIDIA 396.24 driver. They're recommending the 390 driver.
Sorry, I realize this reply is a month late. lol. But I actually have an AMD card nowadays, and the crashing has yet to be fixed.
No worries! Have you opened a bug report I can highlight to them?

Sadly, I have not. I figured that it's probably a known issue at this point, and that it will be fixed in time. I probably should do that though.
Sadly on all fronts, it's a very known issue, and this hasn't been fixed since at least April. We're going into 4 months of this. Of course, if you roll back to the 390 driver, it's fine (and performance for the 390 drivers is overall better than 396, actually), but if you use DXVK, the older drivers can't use the newer DXVK. Heads you lose, tails you lose. The devs say this is a completely Unity engine thing and they're powerless to help.

Liam, if you know, have you heard what's up with Unity? Their drivers have had NVIDIA problems for months now....

Facepunch are no longer selling the Linux version of the survival game Rust (updated)

I have zero horse in the this race, but find it hilarious that the dev implies that:

1) Only the Linux community is toxic (eyeroll). Has he been in, well, almost any other Windows gaming forum at all for the sophomoric, hateful, entitled views there? Hahahaha....

2) Only Linux is a broken platform (eyeroll again). There are so many broken games, compromised engines, etc etc on Windows and, well, every other platform that to pretend it's only us is absurd.

tonRGenuine question, I know Unity engine reputation never had being better but...

Why Unity reputation are getting worse since in the last 2-3 months?
I'm talking about the whole (outside Linux) gaming community in general.

Speaking only from what I've seen, I think Unity has had some bugs that have been show stoppers for a few Linux games in particular. For example, Tannenberg, which I love, sadly hasn't worked since the NVIDIA 390 drivers for me, and that was back in, like, April. And for those of us using DXVK, 396 series drivers are required. I think Unity has been slow (if at all?) to respond...

A look at some top Linux games released in 2018

KabouikHelium Rain will most likely release in 1.0 this year, and it is already a real jewel in its current state, the gameplay is great and there is a lot of depth in the mechanics and the economy. It's not only a good game by Linux standards (a platform on which fewer games are available), but I believe it's also one of the best space games so far, including Windows-only games.
+1 to everything you wrote. Helium Rain also I believe has had over 10% of all sales be Linux. Sadly, I think it's gotten zero attention in the Windows gaming world, where Star Citizen and Elite are sucking all the oxygen from everyone else and plow over all space gaming news there.

+1 to Overload as well.

Also (remotely) possible for 2018 is X4 for Linux, which has a 2018 windows launch date.

NVIDIA pushed out two new Linux drivers recently with 396.45 and 390.77
22 July 2018 at 3:05 am UTC

Avehicle7887Can anyone confirm if the 396.45 driver fixes UE4 engine games?
This driver fixes the UE4 white screen issues, I tested both Everspace and Ruiner and they're back to normal. Also DXVK 0.63 works with this version.

Any idea if it fixes the Unity bug (ex: Tannenberg)?
