Sliders were useful, mostly if the "charity" for a particular bundle was rather bad.

Quoting: tomaszgToo bad there is still no way to filter store and library by language support. I need that to find something the kids could play.
You can filter the store by language support on the search page.
Yeah, but it doesn't solve my issue. I can't use it to find a game with full language support. With preschool kids it is not enough to get subtitles.

Sad he had to apologize. It's only encouraging more attacks of this kind on other people.

It's funny that this manifesto is published on MS owned server...

Well, time to look for alternatives.

BTW. I'm surprised so few projects decided to move away from Github...

War Thunder gets a huge upgrade along with Vulkan by default on Linux (updated)

Quoting: cyberzxI am sorry that you had issue with running game under steam. We had been working hard last night to fix this bug. Now you may update the game and launch it from steam with overlays enabled.

Won't start for me from Steam. It keeps complaining about "D3D API not selected" (can't copy the message, the dialog doesn't allow it). From command line the same thing happens (before it was complaining about missing files/precompiled shaders). I had to reinstall the game from the scratch in a clean directory and now it starts flawlessly.

Notably the newly installed game is 2GB smaller (with full client of course), since the old directory contains quite a lot of outdated files.

I confirm black screen issues with launchers are gone. Still the game won't start for me. Complains about missing files and/or missing shaders in two message dialogs hidden in the background. There are some details there but they are not copy-pastable for some reason.

It didn't launch for me from Steam for a long time (I think since I bought my current video card). Now I have all described symptoms - black screen in launcher, game won't start (complains about missing shaders). I can't get it to work in any way.
