The T'au invade Warhammer 40,000: Gladius in a new expansion out now
26 February 2020 at 10:38 pm UTC Likes: 1

Quoting: ExpalphalogWish I could play this. I am a huge 4X game fan and a colossal Warhammer nerd. Sadly the game won't run at all for me. I just get a black screen that has to be killed from the console.

Try Proton. I was a huge fan of this game, but it broke on SteamOS (old ass glibc)sometime around the Chaos DLC, and it never ran in Proton. Sucked for me but no hard feelings really. Tested the other night and as of 5.x, Gladius is working in proton, so I'm back. Tempted to buy Chaos and Tau, but gonna wait a bit. Very happy about this though.

Microsoft Teams is now available on Linux

This is good news. I use Teams at work with Trello to communicate progress on projects with some of the guys. We are too cheap for JIRA. Ive been forced to use the web client, which only works in Firefox, which ain't a browser that I use for anything else, so this eliminates that. I'm happy about this.

Hello Games continue fixing up Linux issues for No Man's Sky in Steam Play

Love these guys, love this game.

I know they are working hard to clear up some bad karma from the release with all these free updates, but I'd gladly drop more $$$ on a full-fledged expansion.

Quoting: razing32Whelp , here's a purchase i regret.
It does not start on Linux.
It crashes on my old Windows laptop before i finish one turn.
Here's a refund in the making.
Will wait for some pointers on the linux issues but may ask for a refund before it's too late.

What distro? You probably wanna find the binary and run " ldd gladius.bin" from a terminal and look at the dependencies.

No, but there is an unassigned, open issue from Sept 2018 that covers the same territory:

https://github.com/ValveSoftware/SteamOS/issues/649

Quoting: liamdaweno one focuses on it, not even Valve at the moment.

Word.

No. A week before that post on the Gladius forums, I posted on the SteamOS forums asking if we'd ever see a glibc update. I was attempting to get back into Gladius in advance of the expansion release, but ran into the aforementioned dependency issues. But if you've ever visited that forum, you'll know it's a ghost town:

After no official response there, and no joy from the Gladius forums a week later, I decided to stop screaming into the void and just play some more No Man's Sky.

Quoting: wazz4657This game is dope, but I gotta call out the "well supported" comment...it's not. This is another in a line of games broken on SteamOS and other distros (glibc), and I've spoken to them on the forums, there are no plans to fix. I know how the game goes, and they can't support every distro, and if I'm being honest I could play this on one of my Ubuntu machines, so I'm just bitching...but my gaming rig is SteamOS, and this will likely never run there again. Wasted my $$$ on all the DLC up till now, but I will not be buying this xpac, unfortunately.
I'll bite. It worked perfectly on Ubuntu, also works on Manjaro (although the launch scripts supplied with the GOG version seems iffy, have to launch the game directly - will let them know).

SteamOS rarely sees updates, it's also one of the smallest minorities in distribution use. I don't expect any single developer to focus effort on SteamOS until Valve are ready to put the light back on it and more people use it.

Edit: Even looking over the SteamOS support topic, they did try to help and did include the extra libs they said they would (verified with a fresh download from GOG).


Fair enough,however none of those libs were any of the ones SteamOS needed. Realistically, if what they are claiming to support is Ubuntu 18.04, then they need to say that and remove "SteamOS + Linux" in their min requirement. I'm pretty sure I've seen games that have Ubuntu specifically listed, without SteamOS.

That was my post, and really all I asked was "Hey this is broken on SteamOS, any plans to fix" to which the answer was "no"....which I understand to some degree, but that needs to be advertised. If you dig through those forums, you'll find another post (also by me) from when the game first launched. It was broken on SteamOS then as well: https://steamcommunity.com/app/489630/discussions/5/2534848209917927591/

Which I fixed by pulling the file from a Stretch repo. I'm curious as to whether it ever actually worked on SteamOS at any point....but seeing how I'm the only person who brought it up,I get that not many are using SteamOS. All good, but no more $$$ for DLC from this guy.

Seems that the Linux version of Supraland will not be heading to GOG (updated)

Quoting: appetrosyanJust because YOU haven't put DRM in your game, by publishing on Steam you're restricting my ability to share it. For example, I can lend a GOG game to a friend. He can play the game at the same time as I am playing something else. I can't do that on Steam.


Not really judging or trying to engage, as I'm almost 40 and I've done a fair amount of this in the past myself (not anymore).....but this is textbook piracy. This probably ain't the best argument to make.
