Quoting: scaineYeah, as wvstolzing notes, you can still do the virtual camera on Linux, you just need to install v4l2loopback and the obs-v4l2sink. It's a bit fiddly to get working, true, but it's a tick box thereafter, which is really nice.
This reminds me that I was going to write an article on this. Got it set up for Fedora after some fiddling and now it's basically my everyday driver for various video conferences on Zoom, BBB, Jitsi, Teams, whatever.

Edith says: There's a nice article on pulse-effects over at Fedora Magazine btw: https://fedoramagazine.org/tune-up-your-sound-with-pulseeffects-speakers/

Challenging turn-based RPG 'Stoneshard' has a huge overhaul update out, price rising

Absolute lovely. Looks like someone made the homework on mediaeval buildings and stuff and mixed everything in a nice looking fantasy RPG. Getting Death or Glory: Das Erbe von Morgan vibes from this. Stoneshard goes totally on my wishlist.

Helheim Hassle is a seriously funny adventure puzzle-platforming mix

Quoting: Cyba.CowboyJust look at how many people are buying <insert VR solution> for use at home, and in the commercial market (e.g. family entertainment centers), VR is exploding.
Yeah… calm down.

This is GamingOnLinux.
This is a niche already.
And VR on Linux is a niche in a niche.

I didn't say I don't like it. I was just surprised.

I never expected so much discussions on this topic at all. I guess the interest in VR is really high for such a niche?

Quoting: ElectroDDSounds like that. One way I found to ease the feeling and not fall while standing ( I almost tripped myself while standing ), is to make a step forward, and stay that way ( don't know how to describe t better in english, i'm french please forgive me xD ). Feet spread not sideway but on the front and the back, like you want to walk.
Then when you start to wlk in the game in a direction, you'll naturally put your weight on the front or back leg, you'll still feel the discomfort but at least, you won't fall because your brain tell your body to.
Nice, thanks :) I think this is referred to as "lowering your weight" - or center of mass - in sports.

Quoting: ElectroDDConcerning the motion sickness in FPS, I tried alien isolation.
It's not motion sickness you experience, but the strange feeling that your legs are not moving while you move creating a feeling of weirdness in your brain and you kind of lose sense of orientation and tend to believe you're falling.
Sounds like Space Adaptation Syndrome. Does this compare? The description I mean. You've probably also never been to space before
