Space Impossible has a huge new release out for you to get building a starship

I love space games, but I actually very much mind playing pixel games. So that's a big NO from me.

SDL is expanding gamepad support with 8Bitdo SN30 Pro, Google Stadia and more

How does SDL2 deals with identical joysticks? I have two Thurstmaster T.16000M and games only see one. On Windows it's no problem recognizing them as two separate joysticks, but on Linux games with SDL, they can only see one.

When I first played this game a few years ago, I was WTF is this! 700 hours later I understood why it is so addictive. You can replay as many times as you like and it's never the same. The class variety is amazing and refreshing. Will definitely get this update!

So when will this make it to Lutris runner? It is needed to run Star Citizen now.

I added this to my wishlist and will definitely buy one when it comes out on Linux.

Unity 2018.3.4 is out with some important fixes for Linux games

CreakThe Linux team at Unity grew a little ~6 months ago. You're starting to see improvements just now because the Unity version we work internally is between 3 to 6 months in advance with the released versions (right now I'm working on a feature for the future 2019.3 for instance).

Woho that's great to hear. You guys done a great job with the Unity Hub, it was a breeze to get started! Now the interface is a bit odd at times, hopefully it gets tackled as well.

Voc007I am enjoying the Unity Editor for Linux, just downloaded, however there is some kind of bug with the 4 way arrows, when i press one, i cant change directions , WASD and the keypad arrows work, only in game preview, if the game is built and run, the bug is gone.

I can confirm I got the exact same bug. Downloaded Unity from Unity Hub which was waaaaay easier than I thought.

pageroundIs Star Citizen actually installing via wine or do we still need to install in windows and copy the files over?
Because that would make my weekend!


Yes, it works fine now

What??? I spent weeks trying to get the damn game to work under Wine to no avail... I'll give it a shot with Proton now and see how it fairs.

Hollow Knight: Godmaster is the final free content update that's now out

It's not working for me in Ubuntu 18.04. It crashes immediately after a second or two. Seems to be happening to quite a few folks.

Valve officially confirm a new version of 'Steam Play' which includes a modified version of Wine

I decided to install Skyrim which I already had in my library but didn't play for years. I wasn't prepared for the shock that not only it runs quite flawlessly, but I was able to pickup exactly from where I left it 5 years ago!!

Imaging the nightmare users had to go through to get this working before. While I have my concerns that this could adversely affect Linux porting efforts since Proton would be justified as "good enough", it's a step in the right direction overall. Maybe Valve will use this to further expand the reach of SteamOS.
