Eagerly waiting for Steam Winter Sales. That would be a Proton focused sale season for me.

LeopardI wonder if that happens on SteamOS as well.

It looks like salty shores is broken on MacOS and Linux (including SteamOS).

Wow , didn't expect that.

tuubiI think the beach is the only one that regularly exhibits the audio bug for me. That's where it happened in Liam's recent Rocket League stream as well. I almost never play anything but the regular soccar though. Might also happen on some of the special arenas.

I've contacted Psyonix but they said , we only support SteamOS , Linux support is in beta.

LeopardLast updates of RL had performance improvements.

Sadly , missing sounds in certain maps after awhile still an issue.

which maps? I haven't been playing for a while because I suck at it and everyone else got good but just this week me and my kids decided to give it a go again, and it works wonderfully! speed is great, and no crashes anymore after match. really enjoying it.

though.. still getting a goal is a bit of a chance of luck for me but i don't care much about that, I kind of just love playing it beacause it's ridiculous. it's about playing, not necessarily about winning. (for me)

Beach map had that issue. I no longer come across this map on Rumble.

Map with Town in the name ( a little banjo tune plays at the beginning ) have that issue too.

Quake Champions still has network error.

Aspyr Media are getting a little help from Intel for the long-delayed Linux patch to Civilization VI

SadL..personally I had no issues with Civ V or Civ VI ..should I feel lucky?

Regardless, I really like Civilization series (big fan since 1991) and I want a native build (obviously it's always good to have other options like proton/wine as well).

The previous comments make me worry a bit about future compatibility. I would hate it if my next gpu (or pc for that matter) had issues running these games. Hopefully Aspyr will fix the issue and then focus on improving the port.

From what i understand , they both using AMD gpu's. I'm on Nvidia like you and never had a problem.

TemplarGRPerhaps support for amdgpu and radeonsi would be fine as well. IIRC CIV VI has no official support for those drivers at all and there are a lot of serious issues with the port when attempting to run them on Linux using MESA...

It doesn't help that the ports of Civ V and Beyond earth are BROKEN and crash constantly...

I am very dissappointed with Aspyr i don't remember a single port from them without serious issues. Especially when those games become older, they tend to break in many ways... I just hope Civ VII port goes to Feral...

I have Civ5 , Fahrenheit , Borderlands 2 from Aspyr and they work without issues. Though i'm on Nvidia.

Whitewolfe80question on mesa performance and mad max i have a 4gb rx 550 being used on friend windows build ... he gets about 55/60 fps at 1080p med on windows 10.


RX 550, 60 fps in Mad Max, 1080p, medium??
Dude, I find that somewhat hard to believe... but I'll take your word for it. Accepting those numbers as correct, I'd say the performance will be fine in Linux with Mesa (although there isn't much actual performance to begin with in this little runt of a card. )

The RX 550 is about as powerful as a handful of pocket lint. Comparable to the pathetic GTX 1030. Very low end cards, to call them 'gaming cards' would be extremely generous... but hey, if it runs, it runs, right?

I have a low profile RX 550 myself in a tiny HP machine so I'm allowed to sh*t on this card.

Well so far under linux and using the mesa drivers the rx 550 delivers 30 fps in the desert and about 23/27 in camps at 1080p putting it down to 768p (high) and sees a return of 42 in camps and around 50 in desert. To be honest the figure surprised me given i had heard how bad this card was but i did at least see it with my own eyes granted i didnt sit and watch for 30 minutes it was more like 5 minutes. However he seems to be happy with the fact he can run it he basically plays mad max csgo and rocket league so he is more than happy with linux so far granted its only been two days but still hopefully he sticks with it.

Did you turn on Vulkan renderer of Mad Max?

kibblesProton came out and I only had about two games to test it with since I only buy linux native ports. Luckily one of them was DOOM, just couldn't pass that one up. I waited and waited for feral to port it and finally caved. Great game, feral really missed some sweet sweet $ with that one...

It's not like Feral can just say to them that they are going to do that. They need permission. And this is Bethesda, they'll never give it. And to show my support for their rigidity, I'll never buy anything that benefits them.

I think otherwise at that situation. Because of id Software.

Reasons :

1-) They made a great show with Vulkan on both Doom and Wolfenstein 2. They literally brought awareness from all sides.

2-) Historically , id Software is a great company. Even when all industry goes for MS Api's , they sticked to open graphics api's like OGL. And today with Vulkan.

3-) They are really Linux friendly actually but Bethesda won't let them to do that sadly.

So even my money goes to Bethesda , i know i can play id Software games with no performance impact on my Linux system thanks to their api choices. Also Valve will provide support for these titles. At least whitelisted ones.
