Want to play Track Mania Nations Forever on Linux using Wine? There's a snap for that
13 June 2018 at 9:22 pm UTC

This game has worked in wine for years with pretty good performance even. I have had countless hours of online fun with this game under linux back in the days. This game and WoW were the first games i played in wine back in 2006-2007 and they both worked pretty good.

Valve have released a new Steam Beta Client with a richer Discord-like chat interface
12 June 2018 at 9:13 pm UTC

I like the direction overall, and nice features but there are major issues:

  • tab bar in the chat window needs resize option badly, way too big and waste of space
  • text input field and buttons on the bottom are way too big and need resize options
  • spaces between messages are way too big and waste a lot of space. Compact mode would be nice
  • no drag and drop for pictures, sending pictures from the button will open up super bad steam navigation window, where its almost impossible to find the file you wanted to upload
  • let us disable game groups from our friends list
  • give names to the windows so wmctrl can be used, atm all of them have just group name Steam but no actual window name
thats all atm from my fast testing.

persistent open world battle royale? if that works i'm interested.
Trailer doesn't reveal much at all though, needs some actual gameplay footage, rather than trailers first person camera without any info.

Beep boop the Feral Interactive port radar has a UFO sighting for a new Linux port

DisharmonicMy guess would be this https://store.steampowered.com/app/414340/Hellblade_Senuas_Sacrifice/

this is actually pretty good guess. I don't know much about this game, but given its popularity and huge thread asking for Linux support + its an UE4 game and has very positive reviews, it should fit right in.

It's Shadow of the Tomb Raider - just totally random guess

amazing, can't wait till its in early access or finished.


INSOMNIA_The_ArkThanks for your support, people! If you have any questions - we are here to answer.

I have only one question. Will you use Vulkan API or OpenGL for the Linux client? (afaik its UE4 game)

XpanderNot much time to play anything on the weekends, but managed to do the Dirt Rally GoL league event and played/gonna play some GTA V wit the help of DXVK. If i have some more time i will try to play more Rise of the Tomb Raider also.

What is your setup for GTAV? once it loads up i cant use the keyboard as it freezes hard for a good 10 seconds with any input, mouse movement is fine though. Is wine-staging required for DXVK with GTAV? currently testing on normal wine 3.8

i have staging yes and 3.7 atm. no such issues for me
