D9VK for translating D3D9 to Vulkan in Wine has a big new release out
29 May 2019 at 8:46 pm UTC Likes: 3

Awesome! I was playing A Hat in Time through Proton, but the performance was quite bad. Switched to d9vk and it was incredibly fast, but I experienced some crashes. Seems those are fixed now!

trawzPlayed it for a bit - very fun, minor issue though: the game shows PlayStation controls when I'm using an Xbox controller. It's fine in the menus though.

That's odd, I'm using an AfterGlow Xbox 360 controller and the promps are the correct ones.

I'm using the official Xbox One controller and also have a regular 360 controller attached. I'll probably report it to the developers soon.

DragonRuby Game Toolkit, a cross-platform way to make games with Ruby

I'm learning some Ruby at the moment to develop a website with Rails, coming from some C# ASP.NET MVC 5 experience it's pretty good and much more Linux-friendly so far. Game development with it also sounds Interesting to say the least!

Risk of Rain 2 works very nicely on Linux thanks to Steam Play, it's also pretty crazy

I got this one as a gift. It's a really fun game, but I'm not sure if I'd have picked it up myself if it didn't come to Linux officially. It gets a little repetitive after a while, but some content updates should deal with that.

Details on how Slay the Spire sold on Linux plus some thoughts

I would've expected higher than 0.82%. To me it seems a lot of Linux gamers are attracted to smaller indie games like Slay the Spire.

NVIDIA have put out a new Linux beta driver with support for 'G-SYNC Compatible monitors'
31 January 2019 at 10:37 am UTC

QuoteAccording to Linux YouTuber star Xpander69, who I spoke to and has tested it out, the new G-SYNC Compatible feature will only work with one monitor enabled and the game will have to be in fullscreen. Shame, as that would make it pretty useless for me personally with two monitors I use heavily.

It kinda sounds like this is only the case when using synchronization features from a FreeSync monitor on an NVIDIA card, but this also happens when using regular G-Sync. Just wanted to clear that up.
