A developer from Bohemia Interactive wants to know your interest in the Arma 3 Linux port
7 August 2018 at 3:37 pm UTC

jasonmI really feel them going with eON was a poor choice simply because ARMA III is a moving target and continually gets updates. Due to the fact, VP has to wait for a released product to start porting makes the entire process less than ideal. I'm all for eON for ports of games that are out fully and only get bug fixes but I don't think it's a good model for a title like this that is continually updated month after month.

Tanks DLC was supposed to be the last major official DLC though and we are pretty much at the end of Arma 3's active development life cycle which means updates are going to be less frequent. Knowing Bohemia though, I suspect they will still surprise us with one or two spontaneus DLC releases coming out of nowhere, just like they did with Arma 2 many years after development of that slowed down. I know they have been reaching out to third party studios to make further DLC for Arma 3 and I guess we will see where that goes.

Comandante ÑoñardoI hope that the delay of LIS: Before the storm is due to the addition of a VULKAN support.

I'm thinking it's probably Unity bugs, but could also be Vulkan I guess.

Yea I'm interested, but I haven't spent much time with it due to some issues. After the last update it constantly crashes a few minutes in so it's basically unplayable for me now. Earlier versions worked alright though, but the foliage texture flickering with mesa has always annoyed me and takes most of the fun out of it. Multiplayer compatibility has been another thing that takes the fun out of it. Once it works, is up to date and allows us to spend time on populated servers I'll definetly start playing again. Clocked >1400h playing and modding the game before I ditched Windows, so it's not like I'm unfamiliar with the game, but it seems to have changed a lot since then.

Please Feral, make this game come to macOS and Linux, and don't forget about Captain Spirit as well

The Linux beta of Arma 3 has been updated to 1.82

It's a bit of a shame that 1.84 is just around the corner for Windows users. I'm willing to bet they release it next thursday, so if you want to play in a crowded multiplayer-environment, you better do it now while you can. Nice to see they keep updating the ports though. I hope it releases without the experimental tag one day.

Company of Heroes 2 is now officially supported on AMD GPUs on Linux

And while they are updating older games, what about Wayland support? GNOME on x.org hasn't even been working for me after x.org 1.20 update earlier this year. I've had lots of problems with games running through xwayland. RotTR for example freezes at the splash screen before I even get to the main menu. Lots of games have huge frame-rate issues when using xwayland. I think the only game that runs well for me right now is Borderlands 2.

Edit; Okay, I just tried CoH2 for the first time in a while and it runs very well through xwayland.

Never had any problems, but it's nice to not have to see that popup about unsupported graphics every time I launch it
