I'm guessing those plans went up in smoke.

Linux has finally hit that almost mythical 1% user share on Steam again

I actually got 2 steam surveys yesterday, so I assume I'm the one that kicked it over 1 percent.

Seriously, though, I did wonder if they might be intentionally trying to show larger Linux numbers.

Quoting: DrMcCoyI'm still on roll20 on the third, and I really start to get annoyed by roll20 now :P. I'm so much happier with Foundry, it works really well.

I'm curious, why is the 3rd group still on roll20? Is it just the typical reluctance to change? I am on roll20 right now, and I hate it lol.

Does everyone in the party need to buy the software, or just the dm (the one hosting)?

EDIT: Nevermind, they answer this at the end of the video. Just one person in the party needs the software. Sounds like I should get this....

What have you been playing? Have a Sunday chat with us

That's really strange, so many ppl unable to play Metro Exodus. I'm frustrated for you. I have similar specs as some other ppl here, and it runs just fine. Unfortunately, I get seasick with a lot of FPS games, and this one really effects me so I can't really play it. Like, 20 minutes at a time, and then I am sick for the next hour, so I don't play much, lol.

BUT, I have rediscovered Last Epoch. It was in my "unplayable" folder. I decided to give it a go, and it works great. They also have made the game a LOT better since I last tried it to, so I am having a blast.

Manjaro KDE
kernel 5.10.26
amd ryzen 7 1700*
nvidia geforce rtx 2070

*Is this why I am getting better results with Metro?

Metro Exodus from 4A and Deep Silver has officially released for Linux

Lol, apparently I already have the game and didn't know it. Guess I'll try it out. It did one update while I wasn't looking. Now it is doing a second update that is 57 gb. Hopefully that is the real linux version, because I'd hate to download all that for nothing.

Hey, woah, don't go crazy!

Stupid joke, sorry. In all honesty, though, as a curious non-gnome user, I found your comments quite insightful. Thanks.

Quoting: dibzDuring the original shift from Gnome2 to Gnome3, awful multi-monitor support was why I jumped ship back then. After trying various alternatives, I discovered XFCE was "a better gnome2 then gnome2 ever was" and never looked back.

Gotta admit, I've been frustrated with KDE on this end, as well. Not sure I can stomach going back into time for xfce, but I will certainly consider it.

Okay, I absolutely love this game, but I have earned every possible achievement so a daily challenge will be great. I knew the dlc wear coming and I will definitely get it, but I didn't see that he was able to quit his job. That's awesome.
