Still Warhammer Online: Return of Reckoning. Runs amazingly with wine+DXVK. Using vkbasalt with sharpness, smaa and fakehdr to make it look better in 2020. Lots of great PvP action.

Quoting: Whitewolfe80
Quoting: XpanderWarhammer Online - Return Of Reckoning Private server. Been playing it for the Last 6 months or so. Love the epic PvP Battles in this game. Keep Sieges, Fortresses and City Sieges. Currently also leveling an alt, Sorceress Class, which is really powerful, but dies quick if caught :)
Spoiler, click me

is warhammer still going thought they killed the game off

Its a Private Server that has been running since 2014. Official game was shut down at the end of 2013, yes. Honestly in this private server the game is even better than it was during the live. Class balance is much better, Lots of server optimizations also that let you actually have 500+ people on the screen fighting with decent framerate etc. Also its free with no cashshop or anything :) Lots of people playing also.. prime times there are 3000+ people on the server fighting

Missing out on VibranceGUI for Linux? There's a project for that and now a fork for AMD too

I don't really get why you would extra tool for that as nvidia-settings also provides those features. But having for both vendors in the same place is a good thing ofc.

Get ready to putt as 'Golf With Your Friends' releases on May 19

Quoting: EhvisI do hope they fix the Linux (OpenGL) issues before final release. It is a fantastic game for the price, but I don't think they really test the OpenGL builds as the new worlds start out with tons of LOD/clipping issues. The last two courses were full of them, which makes it not so fun to play.

yeah i hope that too. it runs good and looks good but some courses are really buggy on linux client. like you said clipping issues and lighting issues. But other than that its awesome fun with friends. lots of screams!

Google has opened up their Stadia game streaming service, two months free Pro too

Quoting: Ehvis
Quoting: Xpanderso its 14 countries only? where the F is the list of countries?...

I thought it might have been the countries that Stadia has released in, but that's purely a guess.

I signed up through the android app.

yeah through android app it says the app is not available for your country...
its stupid that it just says "something went wrong" on the browser then. its like windows errors.

Warhammer Online - Like the last 4-5 months, great PvP MMORPG. Return of Reckoning server.

DOOM Eternal - Since the nvidia 440.66.07 performance is great. runs extremely smoothly. Cutscenes are bit annoying at times but rest of the game is amazing.

MangoHud, the excellent Linux overlay layer adds OpenGL support in addition to Vulkan

I know there has been some issues with launchers in the past, is it possible to bypass the launcher in that game?

sadly nope. its needed for authentication
