  • Proton Experimental expands NVIDIA DLSS support on Linux to DirectX 11 titles | GamingOnLinux

    Only a few days ago Proton Experimental saw an update to pull in NVIDIA DLSS support for DirectX 12 and as of today's update this has expanded to DirectX 11 titles too.

    It's still currently disabled by default with you needing to make a small adjustment to turn it on. This can be added to individual games by setting PROTON_HIDE_NVIDIA_GPU=0 PROTON_ENABLE_NVAPI=1 %command% in the launch options. Or you can try PROTON_ENABLE_NVAPI=1 %command% with "dxgi.nvapiHack = False" in a DXVK config file.

    There's also an update to newer DXVK that includes the latest development work and you should find that Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is now playable with it. The Proton changelog can be found here.

  • Euro Truck Sim 2 and American Truck Sim get expanded multiplayer with mod support | GamingOnLinux

    SCS Software have begun expanding what's possible with the newly introduced Convoy Mode multiplayer in both their truck sims Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator.

    Now available in Open Beta for owners is the 1.42 update, which adds it the "very loud request" of mod support to Convoy. Not an easy task since everything needs to match between players and online support is difficult at the best of times for developers to get right. Speaking on their blog they mentioned the challenge of "profile recovery when a crucial MOD is removed or changed, and visualizing what MODs are missing from the Steam Workshop when players join a server that contains modifications".

  • Valve cancels Dota 2 live audience and refunds ticket sales for The International 2021 | GamingOnLinux

    Seems like Valve can't catch a break with The International 2021 thanks to COVID-19. After having to move venues, they've now cancelled and refunded all live tickets. This is a pretty big blow to the biggest esports event of the year, with it having the biggest prize-pool ever for a single event at $40,018,195.

  • GTA III & Vice City reverse-engineered code taken down on GitHub again by Take-Two DMCA

    The saga continues for the GTA III and Vice City code that was reverse engineered and available on GitHub, as it has now been taken down once again from a DMCA request.

    For the second time the code repository on GitHub is no more, with it linking to the public DMCA notice that shows Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP acting for Take-Two Interactive Software. It requested a take down of all repositories (including forks) of the code and brings up the recent lawsuit filed against the developers involved in the code

  • How To Install and Get Started with Itch on Ubuntu Linux

    Gaming on Linux has been a bit complex. Since most game developers don’t release versions for Linux, however, using the Stream might have solved a bit of that issue. True gamers always love to play the independent video game that is not developed by professionals, but they are playing to the fun. If you have been an old-school gamer and had been using the Itch desktop client on your other operating systems for a while, you can now install and use the Itch tool on your Ubuntu machines as well and enjoy the full Itch.io experience.

    After you install the Itch tool, you can browse games, update games, and play right there in the application. Itch allows you to pay for the games and play your desired paid games without any hassle.

  • Valheim adds a Jack-o-turnip and tweaks melee weapons to use less Stamina | GamingOnLinux

    Following on from the big Hearth & Home update Iron Gate has tweaked Valheim once more, along with adding a new spooky themed item to build.

    This follows on from the update released on September 17 which once again rebalanced HP / Stamina on most foods along with some bug fixes. Today though it's a bit of a bigger patch enabling you to build the Halloween themed Jack-o-turnip for a limited time. There's plenty more though like melee weapons use less stamina and the Fulings have become more menacing, since they have some new battle tactics.

  • Recruit witches, train them up and battle in the upcoming Stardander | GamingOnLinux

    During your time as head you will accept witches into your school, train them up, guide them through turn-based battles and support them through navigate magical school life.

  • Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory levels up with a new ET: Legacy release | GamingOnLinux

    Based upon the source code release of the classic multiplayer shooter Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, the ET: Legacy project continues maturing on modern platforms with ET: Legacy 2.78 out now. This is easily the best and suggested way to actually play Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory now, as ET: Legacy comes with a ton of improvements over the original while keeping the gameplay intact.

    This release is part of their effort to speed up development and they said version 2.78 had a focus on "improving the competitive side of things" along with other general fixes.

Lenovo Legion Play leaked: Handheld game console running Android

Gaming

Lenovo may be developing an Android-powered handheld gaming device called the Lenovo Legion Play.

The company hasn’t officially announce the Legion Play yet, and might never do so, but a set of images found on the Lenovo website indicate that the company was at least considering introducing the handheld game console earlier this year.

[...]

If Lenovo does decide to bring the Legion Play to market, it wouldn’t be Lenovo’s first Android-powered handheld gaming device. The company launched the $500 Legion Phone Duel for the Chinese market last summer, and followed up this spring with the Legion Phone Duel 2, a $925 phone with a 144 Hz AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, at least 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, RGB lighting on the back, plus a cooling fan.

  • Valve Enables Experimental Nvidia DLSS Support For DirectX 12 in Proton | Tom's Hardware

    Valve's Steam Deck console runs Arch Linux. It uses the Proton compatibility layer to translate Windows-specific API calls to Linux API calls, thus allowing Windows games to work in Linux. This latest experimental update will benefit Linux gamers in general, but it will also benefit the Steam Deck tremendously.

  • Best Emulators To Play Free Games On PC And Mobile

    Emulators have become an essential part of the modern-day gaming experience. Nowadays, gamers prefer to play their favorite games on their chosen platforms. However, this is only possible with the help of emulators. We have gone ahead and put together a list of some of the best emulators for PS2, PS3, Nintendo, and Android games.

  • For a third month in a row, Linux remains above 1% on the Steam Hardware Survey | GamingOnLinux

    I still can't quite believe it but the Linux user share on Steam has not only remained above 1% for three months, it's actually risen again. We continue to track it each month on our dedicated page but I think it deserves a mention again.

    This has been relatively big news for a few months now as we covered when it initially hit 1% again, and last month where it actually stuck. As of September 2021, Linux has managed to hit 1.05% on the Steam Hardware Survey.

  • Epic Games To Release AntiCheat For Linux

    The day I’ve been looking forward to for years. When I first started blogging in 2014, I published a number of pieces about Linux gaming. Readers were not interested in Linux gaming at the time since it required too much portability of tools, especially anti-cheat software.

    In some ways, porting games to Linux seems tough due to anti-cheat software, but as Steam Play and Proton ported hundreds of recent games for Linux, Linux users felt excited about more game developers releasing their software for Linux. Recently, one of the biggest gaming platforms Epic announced its anticheat being made available for Linux and Mac. It is exciting news as you will soon be able to play Epic games on Linux.

Games: Debian GNU/Linux Experience, Godot 3.3.4, and Steam

Filed under
Gaming

  • Wine, Windows programs, and gaming on Debian GNU/Linux. The XBOX 360 controller is “just working” now!

    PC gaming, for me, is sort of a hit or miss thing.

    Even though Wine (If you’re feeling cheeky, the “Linux Subsystem for Windows”) and, for that matter, Steam with Proton, a Wine fork optimized for gaming, have advanced a lot.

    I use laptops, and the only way to get a GPU upgrade with a laptop is to buy a new laptop.

    (Well, external GPUs are becoming more of a thing, but I’m not really sure where the GNU/Linux support stands on that, and if it would mean a proprietary driver, no thanks anyway.)

    Anyway, even up to a couple of years ago, controllers under Wine were dicey and even getting an XBOX 360 controller to be recognized involved terrible hacks involving a userspace driver, blacklisting a kernel module (xpad), and then installing an XBOX 360 controller emulator program for Windows in Wine so you could map the output of the actual hardware to an emulated version of the controller, which would send it along to video games.

    What a pain in the ass! I mean, not as much of one as installing a GNU/Linux distribution in the 90s with winmodems and having to tell X your modelines, under pains and penalties of potentially frying your computer monitor. (How uncivilized!). Modern GNU/Linux should be no more difficult than a small tweak here, a tweak there, and you’re done. At it’s very worst, no problem is likely to come up that would be worse than something that could come up under Windows.

  • Maintenance release: Godot 3.3.4

    While we're busy working on both the upcoming Godot 4.0 and 3.4 releases (with a dev snapshot for 3.4 beta 5 available now), we still cherry-pick important bug fixes to the 3.3 branch regularly for maintenance releases (see our release policy).

    Godot 3.3.3 was released a month ago, and a handful of important fixes have been queued in the 3.3 branch since then. Most notably, users of the GDScript LSP in Visual Studio Code have been experiencing crashes in 3.3.3, which are fixed in this new Godot 3.3.4.

    Note: Version numbers can be confusing with three branches worked on in parallel - this release is 3.3.4, i.e. a maintenance update to the 3.3 branch. This is not the upcoming 3.4 feature release.

    Godot 3.3.4, like all future 3.3.x releases, focuses purely on bug fixes, and aims to preserve compatibility. It is a recommended upgrade for all Godot 3.3 users.

  • Steam Next Fest is live again with demos, livestreams and more | GamingOnLinux

    This is another wonderful chance to test out various games before they see a full release. For the games included in the event, they are supposed to be releasing somewhere between October 7, 2021 and May 1, 2022 so even if you find something you like it might be a while before you get to see the full complete thing.

  • Cyberpunk speedrunner platformer Aeon Drive is out now starring Kira Buckland | GamingOnLinux

    Developer 2Awesome Studio has released Aeon Drive, a cyberpunk themed platformer with a speedrunning theme.

    Aeon Drive stars Jackelyne, a space ranger desperate to get home. Voiced by actress Kira Buckland, who is best known for the voice of 2B in Nier: Automata, Reimi Sugimoto in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable, Trucy Wright in the Ace Attorney series, and Hiyoko Saionji in the Danganronpa series (and a lot more). Armed with a power sword and teleportation dagger, Jackelyne must dash through the neon-infused metropolis of Neo Barcelona, using time and space-bending abilities to find all the drive cores to fix her ship - and save the city from doom.

    Kicking off at 10 AM PST / 5 PM UTC it will see a big sale with hundreds of titles discounted, so you might want to start filling up your wishlist. There will also be around 18 hours of streaming from developers, which is being done in partnership with Auroch Digital. Starting off with Robert Kurvitz, lead writer and designer on Disco Elysium.

  • The upcoming No VR Mod for Half-Life: Alyx shows off amazing progress | GamingOnLinux

    I consider Half-Life: Alyx played in VR to be one of the greatest gaming experiences I've ever had but for a lot of people it's just not possible and so the No VR Mod is in progress.

    For whatever reason some cannot use VR be it due to price, physical ability and more. But if you still want to be able to experience the story first-hand you're currently a bit stuck. There are a few hacky mods floating around to enable mouse/keyboard support but they're all really quite rough. The No VR Mod looks like a different breed though, with smooth movement and it all just looks good.

  • XIGNCODE3 anti-cheat working towards Steam Deck support by launch | GamingOnLinux

    XIGNCODE3 is another popular anti-cheat like Easy Anti-Cheat and BattlEye that currently causes issues for Linux and it's going to hopefully see support (thanks Reddit) for Linux and the Steam Deck by launch.

    It’s been a few years since Valve released the Index virtual reality headset, which sells for $499 and up (with an emphasis on the “up” if you want wireless controllers and sensors required to get the most out of it).

    Now a couple of reports suggest that Valve is working on new VR headsets, including a model that may be a standalone model that can be used without a PC, much like Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2. But there’s a difference between “working on” and planning to release.

    Back in June we reported on a patent from Valve that indicated work progressing towards their next VR headset and it appears the codename is Deckard. Once again coming from VR reporter "SadlyItsBradley" (Brad Lynch) it a new YouTube video.

    Keep in mind that it's all still speculation, and from what we know of Valve they do have quite a habit of prototyping a lot of different things at any one time and the majority never see the light of day for consumers. That said, a VR headset from Valve that can go standalone and be hooked up to a PC would be a logical step to enable more people to check it out (and hopefully bring the price down?).
