Free first-person shooter-strategy 'Unvanquished' is now properly open source

Quoting: illwieckzDo you used our official build (using the updater or the universal zip archive)?
If yes, can you try this instead? https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/unvanquished/

-- illwieckz from Unvanquished
Both the updater and universal zip contain an executable called daemon which gives the Segmentation fault.

So I tried the AUR:
[user@arch unvanquished]$ makepkg -sci
==> Making package: unvanquished 0.51.1-1 (Wed 23 Sep 2020 10:40:01 PM CEST)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Installing missing dependencies...
error: target not found: unvanquished-data>=0.51.1
==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies.
==> Missing dependencies:
  -> unvanquished-data>=0.51.1
==> Checking buildtime dependencies...
==> ERROR: Could not resolve all dependencies.


Okay... Then this:
[user@arch unvanquished-data]$ makepkg -sci
==> Making package: unvanquished-data 0.51.1-1 (Wed 23 Sep 2020 10:41:18 PM CEST)

Blasphemous confirmed to release for Linux on September 21

It was on Steam sale not that long ago. I should've would've could've bought it, if I knew this in advance. :) Ah well, next time.

You do the same, right ? I don’t miss a step ?
I had this same issue on Arch.

Valve moves on from OpenVR, goes all-in with OpenXR for SteamVR
26 June 2020 at 5:52 pm UTC

I wonder what happens when you point this:
~/.config/openxr/1/active_runtime.json
to Monado and start an OpenXR application in Steam.

I tried installing Monado using the Getting Started, but after this I already gave up:  
~/monado/src/xrt/targets/openxr/install_active_runtime.sh: line 7: DESTDIR: unbound variable
FAILED: meson-install

Very nice. I'd wish a copy. Who wouldn't. :)

Quoting: FaalhaasLately I have been sucked into the YUR community. Closing the fitness center due to corona was a big enabler, but now I am becoming addicted. What YUR stuff can you actually do in Linux (besides Beat Saber and Discord)?
Damn, I didn't even know what you were talking about until I googled it. So it's a workout program for VR games? Does it work on Linux, and if so, how?
YUR is the biggest VR fitness community. They use Discord to communitate (which runs natively on Linux). Now I am participating three times a week ( Synth Riders, Audica, Audio Trip ). Several games have intregrated their watch.

Despite many games getting platinum or gold on ProtonDB, I was having trouble starting some. So every time I participate I switch to Windows, which is starting to annoy me for obvious reasons. :)

Maybe you'll have better luck. :D

Quoting: CorbenHonorable mentions are Synth Riders, OhShape and Pistol Whip. All nice rhythm based music VR games, which give you also a nice workout. There is even YUR integration for BS, SR and OhShape from within the game, to count your burnt calories. And the Synth Riders as well as the OhShape devs are looking into a configurable 3rd person cam by my request, so a mixed reality stream would be feasible.


Yeah, not native Linux games, I know, but GTFO works flawless (platinum rating) and Beat Saber is whitelisted by Valve for Proton.

WRATH: Aeon of Ruin to officially launch in February 2021

Well, rather a good game than a rushed one I suppose. :)

Why does getting out of early access nowadays take longer than getting out a baby? Nevertheless, I bought it and probably will start playing in 2021.

Denuvo Anti-Cheat to support Steam Play Proton, being removed from DOOM Eternal

Quoting: andy155The game is junk anyway compared to Doom 2016
I would like to use his arguments why Doom Eternal is junk compared to Doom 2016 to substantiate why Doom 2016 is junk compared to Doom 1993. :)
