GZDoom 3.2.3 released with improved Mesa driver support and more

abelthorneUnfortunately, the launcher (to select a WAD to run) is still broken on Ubuntu.
Is it? Works fine for me.

Has anyone played Juvenile Power Fantasy mod? It always crashes at the end of every level when I press the exit button. I hoped the updated version of GZDoom would not crash, but it still does. I get this error:
gzdoom-g3.2.3/src/s_sound.cpp:2684: int AF_DObject_S_ChangeMusic(VMValue*, TArray<VMValue>&, int, VMReturn*, int): Assertion `(paramnum) < numparam' failed.

Here's another way to look at the Linux market share on Steam

KetilThe money from selling under cost has to come from somewhere. For consoles it comes from the pricier games. If valve did the same with steam machines, then I am afraid the price of all steam games would increase, which would be bad for everyone except Valve.
From expanding the user base. More Steam users get Steam machines ⇒ they buy games on Steam for PC instead of those filthy consoles ⇒ more money for Gabe. Also, more Steam machines ⇒ more interested in Linux ports game publishers ⇒ more games for us. Maybe if Steam machines were $300-$400, we would already have GTA V on Linux. I wish Valve gave another chance to Steam machines, released new cheap but powerful enough versions, and sponsored porting of some big titles.

Steamspy says there are 275 million active users on Steam. 0.27% is about 750 thousand. Maybe it's true that Linux users migrate to Windows? Before PUBG and China, there were 150m and 1% respectively, which gave us 1.5 million of Linux users.

1xokThese games are also very popular outside China.
I mean, there are very few games popular in China. An average Chinese Steam account has GTA V, PUBG, CSGO/Dota and nothing else.

The most popular Steam games in China are Windows-only GTA V and PUBG, so even if there are millions of Linux users in China, they see no point joining Steam. Maybe if these games got Linux versions, we would see growth of Linux market share because of Chinese Linux users.

GOG adds Linux downloads for retro titles Earthworm Jim 1 & 2

Linux and Mac versions on GOG and Windows only on Steam? That's very unusual.
Aren't DOS versions of EWJ 1-2 inferior to SMD/SNES?
TcheyI never found any game close to Lost Vikings gameplay until today, by the way.
I heard The Cave is similar to this. Trine may remind The Lost Vikings too.

Tannenberg, the standalone expansion to Verdun, explodes into Early Access
18 November 2017 at 5:38 am UTC

It runs bad on my computer, about 20 fps while I have 45-80 in Verdun. Damn Unity.
I like Tannenberg so far with its 64 players, differing from Verdun map structure and Mosin rifles, but it's painful to play at 20 fps and 300 ms ping.

The game is very glitchy now, yesterday I joined a server, and many players (including me) couldn't even spawn there.

EikeWasn't it the only incentive ever of Valve for Windowsers to try Linux?
There is an achievement in Postal for launching the Mac or Linux version of it. 8.6% of gamers got it.
