Quoting: BielFPsDoes this also help Fsync? or not yet?
no idea if that helps, but fsync has always worked for me with the tkg builds. he probably backported though?
i have been using fsync with all the versions since 5.9 till now with no problems.

You may want to avoid Linux Kernel 5.9 if you want fully supported NVIDIA drivers

afaik its only a problem for cuda and opencl. the driver itself works just fine.

455.22.04 seems Great. No Floating rocks in Horizon Zero Dawn anymore and also tiny 5-7% perf boost with those drivers. Performance in this game is still terrible though.

SteamTinkerLaunch is a huge all in one Linux wrapper tool for gaming

Woooah.. thats a whole lot of STUFF!
Really deep README.md as well.
Nice work. Looks like a great tool for people who want to fiddle with settings fast via GUI solutions.
Will have to test it out myself.

FOBIA - St. Dinfna Hotel is an upcoming psychological horror - try the demo

It looks Good, Performs mostly good. Has few heavy fps drops at times. Gameplay seems to be inspired by loads of other similar games. Inventory system is like in Resident Evil games. Voiceacting is quite bad though and needs a lot of improvements. It sounds quite cringe when a person is in a situation like this and telling "Those bastards, made a mess in here" or "Who's Knocking? Thats all i needed now."
It needs to be more terrifying in these types of situations. Why is the Door locked and someone is knocking?

Anyway.. Its promising, but voiceacting needs work is my opinion.

What have you been gaming on Linux lately? Come chat

Vintage Story - https://www.vintagestory.at - Nice Survival game. Has Complex crafting systems, seasons with great visuals and some exploration aspects. Not a finished game yet though, but have played it around 20-30 hours with a friend and we haven't really reached to the endgame crafting yet.

Warhammer Online - https://www.returnofreckoning.com - as always. My go to RvR/PvP MMORPG. Works wonderfully under wine.

DiRT Rally 2.0 - https://store.steampowered.com/app/690790/DiRT_Rally_20/ - Finished the Master Career mode and did some daily events. A proper Rally game. Works wonderfully with proton.

Horizon Zero Dawn - Not really playing it as its still quite broken visually and performs bad. But there's progress made with vkd3d. It now launches and runs somewhat. More to come.


edit:
As for Gamepad.. I have 2x Steam Controllers. I don't really use gamepad much for gaming. Keyboard warrior mostly. Some rare times when friends come over and we play some games from the couch, they work wonderfully though.

After an impressive demo and many teasers, art of rally releases September 23

I wonder whats the price gonna be.
Its an impressive game though, at least judging from the demo.

Quoting: Eike
Quoting: XpanderGreat to see you are using Linux PC wording. Need more of that!

I couldn't start the demo, altough there is one for Linux:
They've linked an exe file (and manually starting didn't work either).
Need less of that...

ahh that's not good.
i don't really care about the game myself anyway, i was just amazed by the Linux PC wording in the title
