Another point for Gryffindor... I mean Linux. (Forspoken on Polaris)

So Forspoken launched needing a DX feature level 12_1 which Polaris (RX 4XX and RX 5XX) does not have. The thing is that you can play it on Linux no problem through Proton.

Dead Space Remake

Now that the game is out is anyone having any issues running it or getting it too launch? I was able to launch it at first but closed it to move it to an nvme drive to help with in game load times and to go do some other stuff but when I came back to launch it, it locks up the whole computer, can't even caps lock. Running on nobara 37 with 6900xt, kernel 6.1.6-203.fsync.fc37.x86_64 and mesa 22.3.3 and proton experimental.

Why does the entire Dead Space series have no sound on linux? No one else has the issue

Since moving to endeavour OS, the entire dead space series is dead silent on my system. On my artix system audio worked fine. I'm guessing it's some 32 bit library I don't have installed but I wouldn't know which one, and it seems I'm the only person whos had this issue as searches bring nothing. It's not my audio out put either because I get sound in literally everything else

AntiMicroX How to Convert Throttle / Stop Repeated Input?

Hello everyone,

I'm using Antimicrox for my Flight Sticks to do flashcards (and certain games that require a single button press) on a program called Anki and it works very well!

One problem I've been encountering is that certain buttons have a .1s refresh rate when held, and this causes issues for me since I'm clicking a D pad on the side to pause a video. Usually I can't get exactly less than .1s.

Is there a way to set the click in such that it only gives a single "space" character no matter how long it is held? Or at least to increase the time to like 1s or something? I checked the advanced menu, but the documentation appers to be too sparse for me to know how to solve this on my own.

Thank you for the support! :) ^^

Minecraft running only at 24fps max

I installed Minecraft on Mint (21.1) and it's fps limit was 24 from the start. I've already searched for the problem but all I really got, that was the closest to my problem, was interfering processes, which I disabled after seeing same problem on this subreddit (only Nvidia GeForce). It still occurs. Everything was set to 60fps max or more - didn't work.

Please help

Oblivion options greyed out

Hello all,

Im trying to play tes4 oblivion on my Xfce Linux mint distro through steam and the options on the launcher are greyed out. I know this is a common problem with the solution answered many times, but when I follow the steps to solve it here, when I enter:

export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/22330/pfx/"

And then enter:

wine regedit

I get this.

If I enter wine regedit in a new terminal before exporting the prefix, it opens it fine but obviously for the wrong prefix.

All other walkthroughs I find online fail at a similar point. Also, Im pretty new to using wine. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

The Witcher 3 (v4.0 using DX12) + Radeon + RADV = Kernel Panic

there is opened bug inside MESA : https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/-/issues/2300

and a lot post inside protonDB: https://www.protondb.com/app/292030

Running The Witcher 3 after update 4.0 in DX12 mode after few minutes of perfect gaming the system completely freeze and require hard reset. i don't know if the bug is inside AMDgpu o RADV.

it is normal that some game has problem using proton, but in my opinion kernel should not be go in kernel panic (or just completely freeze). the bug is present up to kernel 6.1.8 and mesa 23

I write here because i try to give more visibility to this bug, and collect opinions. thanks

Mass Effect Legendary Edition help

I tried to install this game, but when running first time setup, it would consistently fail when installing EA App (step 1 of 5).

If I separately ran wine under the game's prefix and ran the ea app installer included with the game downloaded from steam, which ran perfectly, then tried to open the game through steam, EA app would show "temporarily lost connection".

Running the EA app from the game's wine prefix with normal wine instead of proton would not show the game as being installed, instead saying the game was managed through steam, and that I had to download it even though the game was already downloaded.

I have tried the fix of switching to proton experimental and repeatedly deleting the wine prefix upon install failure, but it never works unless I force EA app installation to the prefix through normal wine, and then I get stuck on "temporarily lost connection" instead of an EA login screen.

I've tried installing dotnet48 to the game's prefix with winetricks/protontricks, but that didn't get me past "temporarily lost connection ".

Are there any ways to resolve this? I am not getting the blank screen EA app bug at all, it's just refusing to connect to the internet.

Titanfall 2 Steam no DS controller and launch arguments

The game is on a Steam sale of 2.99E on Steam right now so go and grab it. Had a wonderful online experience last night!

I've got a problem with it tho. Doesn't seem to play nice with launch arguments in Steam. gamemoderun causes the EA app to crash and -novid argument does nothing. I don't have the Steam overlay in-game despite it being enabled in Steam. Also my DualSense doesn't work in the game.

I don't bother to get the -novid argument working that much but would like to get my controller working.

Tested the game with both Proton-Next and Experimental-Bleeding Edge.

Proprietary nvidia driver not working and nvidia-open acting weird

I've got RTX 3060 Arch Linux

Only driver my pc boots with is nvidia-open, proprietary nvidia or nvidia-vulkan are broken for some reason and don't let my pc initialize

Anyway, it's acting weird, some games like Total War: Warhammer, Hades, Crusader Kings 3, Frostpunk, Kenshi, XCOM 2 or Red Dead Redemption 2 work perfectly fine

Some require me to set PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 to launch and lack in performance or have visual artifacts

Some just don't work, for example Just Cause 3 only shows splash screen and crashes, even with WINED3D option

All of those games worked fine with proprietary driver on different device with older GPU

I'm not really experienced with drivers and stuff so I'm not even sure where to begin debugging those issues or look for clues, any help or suggestions would be appreciated

Can't install Vortex on my Deck using Steamtinkerlaunch...

So I'm having a bit of trouble with something. Vortex (Nexus's mod managing tool) is my regular mod manager on Windows, and I've had a bit of trouble getting it to work on my Steam Deck, since it's running on Linux. I thought that the Steamtinkerlaunch would be the solution to my problem, but not so much. Whatever option I select on the menu, be it 'Install' or "Download' brings me to a progress bar which tells me it's 'Installing Vortex' (and also something called 'Dotnet'). However, the progress bar does not progress whatsoever, and eventually it just gives up and redirects me back to the previous menu.

What am I doing wrong here? Isn't there something I require? I'm new to modding games in Linux so perhaps there is something I'm not doing correctly.

8bitdo Ultimate Bluetooth Controller - successful Bluetooth pairing, but Steam won't detect it

I've read a number of troubleshooting posts here about this controller, but haven't been able to find one with the issue I'm having.

I've paired the controller easily enough via Bluetooth. Pop_OS shows it in the list of bluetooth devices. No issues there.

However Steam won't recognise it, and tells me I have no controller connected. When I plug it in via USB, Steam detects it without issue and the controller works well.

What step(s) am I missing in order to have Steam recognise the controller as a Bluetooth device?

Apparently Wine 8.0 should have the DualSense's Haptic Feedback working OOTB

In the announcement of Wine 8.0, this change was announced:

Sony DualShock and DualSense controllers are supported when the hidraw backend is used, and exposed to applications in the same way as they are on Windows.

This is pretty much what we needed in order for DualSense's Haptics to work. The reason they didn't work this whole time was purely because the games were supposed to send audio to two channels on the controller, which was wrongly exposed in Linux/Wine before.

Unfortunately I'm traveling and I cannot test this, but theoretically it should now work. Also, it makes sense that this actually refers to the haptic feedback situation, because this was under discussion for more than one year in Wine's Gitlab. I cannot wait to test this, so if anyone can do it, please report it back here. Also, at the moment you'll probably need to patch some Proton version in order to use Wine 8.0, as I'm not knowledge if there's any Proton version that uses it.

Duplicated keystrokes in chatboxes when playing Terraria through Proton.

When typing in chatboxes (such as character naming or chat) the keystrokes duplicate. This only happens in chatboxes and when i am playing Terraria through proton. I know there is a native version of Terraria but I am having problems with it not recognizing my thumb buttons on my mouse (mouse4 and mouse5) so i switched to using proton. I am using proton experimental. Have any of you encountered this issue before and/or do you know any possible fix? The video showcases the problem.

Guide: Alpha test HDR on Linux!

Here I'm going to show you how to alpha test the HDR gamescope implementation on linux :

Our shopping cart will contain:

gamescope from latest git

running gamescope standalone

amdgpu

HDR monitor or TV

special gamescope patches for kernel

steam linux runtime soldier - beta

wine/dxvk/proton supporting HDR

currently only 3 distribution can do this easily, without the know-how that if possessed you wouldn't even need this guide.

let's start with

[Arch Linux & And derivatives] :

gamescope from latest git

this is easy enough to do just:

yay -S gamescope-git

running gamescope standalone

you will need this AUR Package: gamescope-session-git with this Patch: 0001-update-to-work-on-nobara-with-hdr.patch

and after applying the patch, building, and installing

a new entry along the desktop sessions will appear.

amdgpu

this only works on the amdgpu driver, i915/intel still needs a lot of work, and nvidia well nvidia, I'm hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

HDR monitor or TV

Duh!

special gamescope patches for kernel

linux kernel with Josh Ashton Kernel Patches

steam linux runtime soldier - beta

You will need to make you library show tools, where you will scroll to find steam linux runtime soldier open it's properties and click on BETAS, choose "client_beta"

wine/dxvk/proton supporting HDR

DXVK 2.1 with DXVK_HDR=1 or Proton experimental and/or ge 44 & higher

with that all done you should be able to log out and find new entry in your display manager log in and bam HDR! (hopefully, also stick to single monitor)

[Nobara Project (Fedora based)] :

gamescope from latest git + running gamescope standalone

sudo dnf install gamescope-session

after this

a new entry along the desktop sessions will appear.

amdgpu

this only works on the amdgpu driver, i915/intel still needs a lot of work, and nvidia well nvidia, I'm hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

HDR monitor or TV

Duh!

special gamescope patches for kernel

already included make sure to update to latest kernel though.

steam linux runtime soldier - beta

You will need to make you library show tools, where you will scroll to find steam linux runtime soldier open it's properties and click on BETAS, choose "client_beta"

wine/dxvk/proton supporting HDR

DXVK 2.1 with DXVK_HDR=1 or Proton experimental and/or ge 44 & higher

with that all done you should be able to log out and find new entry in your display manager log in and bam HDR! (hopefully, also stick to single monitor)

[PikaOS (Ubuntu based)] :

gamescope from latest git + running gamescope standalone

install pika game utilities from the welcome app

or use the terminal to do:

sudo apt install pika-gameutils-meta

after this

a new entry along the desktop sessions will appear.

amdgpu

this only works on the amdgpu driver, i915/intel still needs a lot of work, and nvidia well nvidia, I'm hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

HDR monitor or TV

Duh!

special gamescope patches for kernel

already included make sure to update to latest kernel though.

steam linux runtime soldier - beta

You will need to make you library show tools, where you will scroll to find steam linux runtime soldier open it's properties and click on BETAS, choose "client_beta"

wine/dxvk/proton supporting HDR

DXVK 2.1 with DXVK_HDR=1 or Proton experimental and/or ge 44 & higher

with that all done you should be able to log out and find new entry in your display manager log in and bam HDR! (hopefully, also stick to single monitor)

Note not all games will detect HDR

Known working games:

God of War

Gears of War 5

Shadow of the tomb raider

There's a huge difference in framerate limiters for games using Wine or Proton. Interesting for competitive gamers!

Hi everyone!

I've recently been trying to find out which of the available schedulers availabe in the linux-tkg repositories perform the best in a competitive setting, Overwatch 2 in this case. As I expected, apart from stock CFS, they all have the same marginal performance gain.

The settings I used are optimized for lowest input latency possible, most importantly limiting my FPS to a value where the GPU doesn't hit 100% load, 240fps in this case.

I was always using the ingame frame rate limiter for my tests, but then decided to try out the one built-in to DXVK, because Battle(non)sense said in a video that frame rate limiter quality can matter. And lo and behold, the DXVK limiter performs VASTLY better than the ingame one, which I set to maximum when using with the DXVK limiter. Check out the results:

https://imgur.com/a/0rVnUgV

As you can see, with CFS and BORE, the frametime is quite unstable. But the BMQ with DXVK frame rate limiter is almost a straight line. Perfect for competitive games! This is also not because BMQ is used, this is reproducable on all schedulers.

The full benchmark, with different schedulers, can be found here: https://flightlessmango.com/games/128479/logs/3599It's far from complete at the moment, I haven't found the time recently to update it, but I'll try and do more tests with more schedulers. There you can also see the full information about my system.

Maximum refresh rate 143.99 (ASUS)

It is an ASUS XF270H, the maximum refresh rate on my GNOME desktop (Arch) is 143.99.

More details- My brother just got a new LG 165hz 27inch monitor after this older Asus 144hz 27 inch monitor was having random blackouts. Me myself I have a LG 144hz 24 inch works great. He let me try the 144hz 27inch Asus and it worked but for some reason (using Arch GNOME Wayland) the maximum refresh rate was listed as 143.99hz. I'm not worried about that 0.01hz in terms of mUHh fRaMErAte but so that there aren't sync issues, for example games that have specific refresh rate settings such as Resident Evil Village, even though there it says 144 desktop says 143.99, and it instantly feels more choppy when it's set to that. I couldn't find much info when searching this so I switched back to my previous LG monitor because 144 just worked.

What could have been the cause for this 143.99? The ASUS monitor has lots of tweakable settings, could it be something with the monitor? Could it be that my GNOME install doesn't have Freesync/VRR support, it can't list 144 as the maximum range without that or something?

[Tech Support] dxvk:DXVKError, Return Code 768 on Oblivion, Can't Launch/Bad Performance

Hi, all.

Continuing my journey daily driving linux on older games. This week up is Oblivion, since I need to run a lighter machine for a week or two.

I own the GOG version and that's what I'm sticking with. However, getting it running was a nightmare.

I tried Lutris initially, with many different config combinations and runner options. Nothing appeared to go wrong. The install worked using both the GOG integration and the "GOG + Wine" lutris scripts.

The launcher initially would only open during the install. Eventually, I saw a user on Protondb post the following launch options can help getting the game to run:

PROTON_USE_WINED3D11=1

Adding this does allow me to open the launcher, but the game still fails to open in Lutris.

I'm currently using Lutris-GE-7.34 as my runner. Here are the logs:

Started initial process 338821 from gamemoderun /home/s3kshun-8/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-GE-Proton7-34-x86_64/bin/wine /home/s3kshun-8/Games/the-elder-scrolls-iv-oblivion/drive_c/game/Oblivion.exe PROTON_USE_WINED3D11=1 %command%
Start monitoring process.
gamemodeauto: 
fsync: up and running.
wine: Using setpriority to control niceness in the [-10,10] range
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'dxvk::DxvkError'
Monitored process exited.
Initial process has exited (return code: 768)
Exit with return code 768

I then tried in steam. Steam refused to even open the GOG installer unless using GE-proton-7.43 as the runner. The install eventually worked, and so does the game itself, when using the above launch options. Otherwise it fails the same way.

It seems slower than I'd like for it to be, which is part of the reason I'd like to get it out of a Steam install. I don't understand why it'd work with the latest proton-GE, but not Wine-GE.

I tried many different combinations of settings in Lutris, including disabling the runtime and preferring system libraries being disabled. The only thing that had any effect was disabling DXVK; the game now launches but runs with absolutely horrendous performance.

My next step will be to try and install DXVK inside the wine prefix Lutris is using, but I've never had to do that with any of my other games, I have doubts it'll be effective. I also tried manually installing DirectX and VC++ dependencies and that didn't help either.

Here's some system info:

How much discord doesn't care about linux

I opened a ticket in Discord support about not being able to share screen, they answered me:

"So sorry for the streaming trouble with your Linux"

The fix they gave me:

"Check your OS drivers are up to date, you can use Windows update to update your OS"

"To update your driver's check Windows Device Manager"

Why in the fucking world they are telling me to use Windows Update ON LINUX!!.

This kind of responses only could confuse new Linux users that go to discord support page.

Mesa 23.0 is upon us - and Intel seems to be serious about it

While browsing the Mesa repository I noticed that several Intel related bugs are marked as release blockers for the 23.0 release [1], some of them prominently gaming related. I wasn't expecting that and was very delighted that they elevated those issues to serious showstoppers.

Where is PAYDAY 2 renderer_settings.xml stored on Proton?

So, I installed Windows version of PAYDAY 2 through Proton for easy modding, and I wanted to edit renderer_settings.xml to get more FPS, but when i tried to find it, i doesn't find it. I know where is PAYDAY 2 renderer_settings.xml file stored on Windows. I know where is PAYDAY 2 renderer_settings.xml file stored on native Linux version. But there is no even single folder of PAYDAY 2 in AppData in Proton drive_c. Where is it stored in Proton?

Proton version is 4.11-13.

4:3 resolution on CS:GO wayland

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone got any tips regarding this issue. When I start my CS:GO on Wayland on any other resolution except my native resolution the scaling breaks the game like this: https://imgur.com/a/EAGnxXu. I'd really like to play on 4:3 stretched as I'm so used to it.

I already tried to use gamescope for scaling but the game just blackscreened.

On Xorg the scaling works as I want, but Wayland works very well otherwise so I'm trying to stick with it.

What's the state of gaming on Wayland?

I'm using an NVIDIA GPU, if it matters. I managed to get Wayland itself working. Even stuff like screen sharing seems to be working, but I haven't tried gaming yet. I don't expect it to be perfect, but how does it compare to Xorg? And does Proton natively support Wayland or will it end up using XWayland?

Proton itself has been a hit or miss for me even on X11. Doom Eternal performs better than it does on Windows, but Arkham Knight stutters too much and is unplayable.

( Godot + Nvidia ) Lower frame rate than windows?

I'm running a game project made in Godot on Pop_OS! which is giving me around 40-50fps. The game code is unoptimised and will be changed later, however, the same scene is running at full 60fps (the refresh rate of my screen) when running on Windows.

I downloaded Godot binary from the official website, I'm using the nvidia iso and updated the OS from the pop shop as well as the terminal. Is there something else I need to do to get smoother frame rates on Pop OS?

Here are my system specs:

i5-9300H

GTX 1650 Mobile

8 GB RAM

Gamer thinking of swapping to Linux, have some compatibility concerns.

I'm once again thinking that maybe I should swap to Linux, but I have some concerns about compatibility with my stuff. I play some sim racing, as well as flight sims. I don't really play iRacing much and only ever really with "free" content so don't mind much losing that game, since apparently people making it don't want to enable Linux support of EAC for some reason. Assetto Corsa and Assetto Corsa: Competitzione apparently does work with Linux and that's every racing game I play online anyways, so it's fine. DCS: World also can be get to work, so I'm not much worried about being left out from sim games if I swap.

But, there's some hardware I need to have working well for me to swap to Linux, which are:

Logitech G502 mouse (I need to have profiles for different games, auto swap when I launch game would be really good, but I guess I could manage without, probably)
Logitech G Pro X Wireless headset (I just need to have the volume wheel working, don't really care about anything else on the software for this, even tho the mic presets were pretty sweet since I easily found one where my voice sounds pretty natural)
Logitech X52 HOTAS (This has to work well, if there's any problems with accuracy, latency or such I won't even try to swap, software is meaningless if all buttons and such work)
Logitech G27 Racing Wheel (Same as above, but this also has to have way to make it feel like with these settings, and has to have way to change max rotation outside of the game)
Corsair K70 Keyboard (all media buttons and volume scroll wheel has to work)

I also have 3 monitor setup, where everything is stupidly different. Main monitor is 3440x1440 @144Hz Freesync monitor and using it with G-Sync enabled from Nvidia Control Panel and it has to work too, second one 1920x1080 @60Hz, and last one is which might give problems, since it's an old TV and I run it 1824x1036 @60Hz while it's actually only 720p TV. It doesn't matter which resolution I use, I have to scale it from the Nvidia Control Panel. It just doesn't look nearly as good when running it 720p, for some reason.

My PC is getting old also, but I don't think there will be problems with compatibility, just listing them anyways:

MSI Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon,
i7 7700k,
GTX 1070TI,
16GB DDR4 @3000MHz,
500GB M.2 NVME SSD,
250GB 2.5" SATA SSD,
And few basic HDDs.

So, is there something that will be obvious problem on Linux side? I'm thinking of Manjaro Plasma, don't even know why tho. Is there some distro I should check out that "works better" for gaming? I'm not completely new to Linux, but I'm super rusty with it and haven't used anything but hosting some servers on Debian in many years, and that was pretty much just copy pasting things from online. I used to run Linux like 15 years ago, but barely at all since then because gaming. I just would rather use Linux than Windows, but since I also play wide variety of games it hasn't really been possible, and now it looks like it's getting to the point where I might be able to jump back.

Thanks!

Elden Ring: moving left stick also presses weapon/spell switch

Has anyone run into this issue and knows a fix? Whenever I am moving the left stick (camera) on xbox one controller with dongle, the weapon/spell switch also gets pressed with corresponding direction. I tried enabling/disabling steam input, xbox controller support in Steam, switching Proton versions (GE, Experimental, 7, Next). Nothing seems to help. If I enable steam input, the buttons are mapped incorrectly, and A button, B button and canera do not work.

I am on last Pop OS, forgot version, installed like a week ago.

Thanks in advance

Gallium Nine causes gray dots/glitches. Any fix?

So, I have been experimenting on Gallium nine as a DXVK alternative and I got this weird issue/bug that I have never seen anyone else talking about. The performance seems ok but It couldn't render certain parts and appears as gray or white dots.

I tried it with lutris and zoo tycoon 2 but this happened on other some DX9 games also, which most of them are running fine with DXVK. It also sometimes outright crash with Gallium Nine while running fine on DXVK. I installed Gallium nine with winetricks and made sure it is installed properly using wine ninewinecfg . Currently downloading the Witcher 2 offline installer for testing.

Weirdly, Unigine Heaven benchmark works very well with no glitches, no gray dots, etc.

My setup are GPD Win Max 2020 with i5-1035G7 stock specification and Fedora KDE 37 with their fork of Linux 6.1.7.

Note: Please don't argue about whether there are performance benefit of using Gallium Nine over DXVK. I personally see slight performance increase in Unigine Heaven benchmark only. Like 1058 vs 1030-something with DXVK (The Gallium nine setup also has lower minimum FPS). I am more interested in using Gallium nine with older GPU that doesn't support Vulkan and whether it is better over using WineD3D.

Almost everytime I start up steam it downloads a 550ish MB update for Rise of the Tomb Raider...why?

Title says it all to be honest. For the past week or so (keep in mind the game has been installed for a lot longer), every time I launch steam, there's a 550 mb update it needs to download and validate.

And judging by the size, it seems ot be the same update. What's going on? Why does the same thing need to be downloaded multiple times?

Steam Library Folders need to be re-added on startup

Hey all, hoping someone can help me figure this one out!

I have multiple Steam games installed on a second and third SSD on my desktop (Kubuntu) and any time I reboot the machine, only games that are installed on my primary drive appear unless I go into Settings, Downloads, and then click on Steam Library Folders and manually re-add the other drives in the Storage Manager. Initially I thought it was because I didn't have the drives set to automatically mount on startup so I added them as entries in my fstab file but even after verifying that they now mount at startup, the library folders still needed to be manually re-added in Steam.

This is not a huge deal by any means but I was wondering if anyone has run into this and has a solution or if this even HAS a solution. Thanks in advance for any info!

The GNOME fullscreen issue is gone!

Sorry if it's obvious news by now but the GNOME fullscreen bug that caused fullscreen apps to go black when alt-tabbing has been fixed on my system through upstream updates. It was there for a few months and the only workaround was to move the game window to another workspace, now it is no longer necessary.

I use Arch with GNOME and the fix made its way into stable within the past few weeks, I would like to know has this change also reached Ubuntu or Fedora?

Gpu passthrough on a VM.

I was having a great time with zorin os and have all my files on it. Recently, a friend donated their high end gpu to me. I detest windows. I installed windows on a virtual machine to try to game that way but there is a huge performance limit and they want me to play high end games.

I'm now trying a single gpu passthrough on virtualbox. I know I'm stubborn and they want me to dualboot. I would hate to constantly have to switch between operating systems just to browse and access my files.

Why hasn't virtual machine passthrough been a focus for the linux community? Gaming being the main reason next to utility software drawing people to the operating system. I found that it was just a few people working on this gpu passthrough and actually got it working. I feel like if the community could win over the market if they streamlined virtual machines for the average person and enabled passthrough somehow.

Why is gpu passthrough and passthroughs in general not a worthwhile solution?

HeroicBashLauncher Problem

Wanted to launch my GOG games though Emulationstation so I tried the HeroicBashLauncher. It makes the launching script in the game files folder and then I make my own script pointing to the launch script. Game shows in Emulationstation and launches but a window pops up saying

Process Stopped

Please unzip or copy the HeroicBashLauncher folder to ~/Games/Heroic

The folder is there and if I click ok the game runs fine. Id really just like to be able to get rid of that window so the game would just launch cleanly. Any ideas?

[Question] The most efficient way to stream video + keyboard and mouse input over 1 Gbit Ethernet LAN

Hi,

I want to stream IO from my Windows computer to my Linux machine. Both devices have 1 Gbit ethernet card, and are connected to 1 Gbit ethernet switch. I tried using VNC through TigerVNC, but this solution have pretty low framerate with high latency. I also tried Steam Link, but on more graphically intense games image gets very blurry, sometimes Steam Link connect through internet instead of LAN which is terrible for performance, and is a propriatary solution (and I am not that big of a fan of proprietary software).
Is there any better solution out there?

input controller recognized but unresponsive

I play Steam games on Ubuntu 22.04 and have the 8bitdo Ultimate BT/2.4g Wireless controller working great in both d-input and Switch modes. In x-input mode, however, the controller is recognized but unresponsive. Evtest gives me the following, but when I run any evtest /dev/input/event2*, there is no signal.

Available devices:

/dev/input/event21: Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver

/dev/input/event22: Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver

/dev/input/event23: Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver

/dev/input/event24: Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver

/dev/input/event25: Microsoft X-Box 360 pad 0

/dev/input/event26: Microsoft X-Box 360 pad 1

/dev/input/event27: Microsoft X-Box 360 pad 2

/dev/input/event28: Microsoft X-Box 360 pad 3

I am trying to understand why there is no signal and what I can do to make the wires connect. I am also trying to understand why there are 4 different events for USB dongle and controller and not just one each. D-input doesn't seem to work in Lutris/Wine (recognized perfectly in wine control but not in-game) for playing the Witcher 3, so I am hoping I will have more luck with x-input.

Guide to install AMD, Intel or Nvidia drivers along with other tips

This video was for one of the comment about how to make the AMD 7900 Graphics driver work on Linux, but it went longer and covered other things, including:

- Microcode updates for Intel

- Firmware updates in general

- Installing / Updating Nvidia drivers

- Intel Arc updates

- Kernel Updates

- Bunch of other stuff

Main goal was to help out through my experience in running last December the 7900 XT on Ubuntu with a couple of games. Hope this serves and helps those that wanted to test it and let me know how it went in your case. Of course you should see a huge jump in performance versus the experience I had back in December.

Momodora 1 and 2 locked at 30 fps.

i'm trying to run Momodora 1 and 2 on Linux Mint
The game runs decent but is locked at 30 fps (the game is supposed to be 60 fps)

I've tried using Steam Proton, Lutris with recommended settings (Runner: lutris-7.2-2-x86_64), Wine and the latest Wine-Staging but in every case FPS is still locked at 30.
Log reports FPS as 60 although the program itself reports 30.

Can someone help me?

Info:
The game engine of Momodora 1 and 2 is Game Maker 7 and the game was released in 2010. In Wine configs i've used Windows 7 and Windows XP

Exe requires windows 10, but the wrapper is configured to version 6.1

I'm trying to help a colleague port some software on their mac. It's not a game, it's more like graphical software. Everything was going smoothly until the we ran the exe file through the wrapper and the installer returned an error message saying that we need to update to windows 10.

Is there a way to configure the windows version in wineskin? I assumed it was via engines but I can't figure it out.

Apex Legends constant shader caching.

Hi - I'm not new to Linux but new to proton. I've been trying to play Apex Legends, but have been suffering from endless "shader caching". I've left it on upwards of two and a half hours but it always gets stuck at the very end. I understand that people were previously using the apex-legends-cache on GitHub, but the deprecation notice says that this problem was effectively fixed with the updates to DXVK and the Nvidia drivers. Both of which are up to date on my system to my knowledge.

Do I just need to leave it on for an extremely long time? Or is there something I'm missing? Any way here are some details.

Proton: GE47

Launch options: gamemoderun %command% -eac_launcher_settings +fps_max 250

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 4800H

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile

Kernel: 6.1.7-arch1-1

How to set up Wine-Staging on Flatpak Heroic Launcher/Steam Deck?

I've been using for many months "latest" Wine-GE downloaded from ProtonUp-Qt. It somehow worked, most of the time at least. Same treatment went to my desktop Arch installation, but after encountering more and more problems, I've looked to the issue page on Heroic GitHub. It seems that WineGE is a very outdated version of Wine, so I've installed Wine through normal pacman means, and changed Heroic from flatpak to AUR "normal" version. Oh boy, I can't even comprehend how seamless is the experience, and how much performance it gains, even compared to native Windows.

I would love to use the same Wine (7.22) version on Steam Deck, but since I'm pretty much limited to Flatpaks, there's my question. How to, and it is even possible?

Problems while installing proton ge

Hi i am using Heroic Launcher with Epic Games. There is a game called "Inside" I want to play. Some people says it works out of the box (maybe steam users) and some suggest using Proton GE. My problem is heroic doesn't install Proton GE whatever the version was. it just says: (10:37:24) INFO: [WineDownloader]: Start installation of wine version Proton-GE-Proton7-30 and it stays like that I installed heroic from the aur.

Mouse movements in 3D steam games are incredibly sensitive, even on the least sensitive settings.

I have recently built a new gaming PC. I have an AMD 7000 XT. I'm running Gentoo Linux with wayland, SDDM, dwl (like dwm but for wayland).

The graphics card works fine, but I think there's something wrong with my mouse or my drivers. I have tested out both 2D games (Hexcells and Slay the Spire) and 3D games (Doom 2016 and Slime Rancher 1). All of this is tested through Steam. In the 3D games, the mouse sensitivity is so high that it's unusable. Characters will just spin violently in a circle with the slightest movement.

Even after turning the in-game sensitivity to the lowest setting, and even after using the DPI button on my mouse to turn DPI to its lowest setting, 3D games are still unplayable.

I have attached my dmesg output here: https://pastebin.com/uqj0gunh

The only other thing I could find was an error in my Xorg.0.log file (I didn't think these logs existed for wayland but okay I guess):

[    26.018] (II) LoadModule: "fbdev"

How Do I Go About Debugging This? Diablo 2 Resurrected on Linux.

My OS is Ubunutu 22.10. I have wine installed (wine-7.0). I installed the vulkan dependencies, the latest nvidia drivers for my graphics card (geforce rtx 2070 super with 525 drivers). I have run this game on this computer in the past but now I am having issues. I tried with Lutris and without. This is the error that I get:

(unable to initialize graphics device...)

Here is the log when I run the executable for D2R via the command line and redirect the output.

How Do I Go About Debugging This? Diablo 2 Ressurected on Linux

My OS is Ubunutu 22.10. I have wine installed (wine-7.0). I installed the vulkan dependencies, the latest nvidia drivers for my graphics card (geforce rtx 2070 super with 525 drivers). I have run this game on this computer in the past but now I am having issues. I tried with Lutris and without. This is the error that I get:

(unable to initialize graphics device...)

Here is the log when I run the executable for D2R via the command line and redirect the output.

PSA: AMD GPUs are NOT completely better than Nvidia GPUs

I see most people in this subreddit praise AMD like it's our savior and bad-mouth Nvidia like it tried to harm us. This is why I feel like this subreddit needs to be taught the reality of the two different GPU brands on Linux

Sure, AMD has open-source drivers, but it doesn't mean it's better in every single way. For one, support for newer GPUs doesn't happen immediately. Get an RX 7900 XTX and try installing any distro, you're gonna spend a lot of time trying to get it even running. Also, even when distros start to offer an out-of-the-box experience, AMD GPUs still tend to have minor issues. In my case, I run PopOS with an RX 6600 XT and while it's mostly been going smoothly, I have dealt with occasional issues, like being randomly logged out while playing a game (In one case, it happened during a Multiversus game). Still, with AMD, you get open-source drivers, better Wayland support, and an out-of-the-box experience.

Now for Nvidia, support for newer GPUs usually come on day one. In one very recent case, when the RTX 4090 came out, a driver update to get it supported was issued by Nvidia. People also tend to ignore how Nvidia GPUs may have features someone may want/need (such as ray-tracing, DLSS, CUDA, etc). Sure, you may need to manually install the drivers, but once it's installed, you can expect a smooth experience that is slightly smoother than AMD. Nvidia does still have its downsides like its driver being partially open-source at most, and Wayland support not being on par with AMD, but that's really about it.

So really, neither provide the best experience. So deciding on your next GPU is gonna depend on what you need. If you just do gaming (like I do), AMD might be fine but expect newer GPUs to not be supported immediately. Go for Nvidia if you do content creation, use CUDA, or want better ray-tracing support. Don't blindly listen to the AMD shills out there (and don't listen to the Nvidia shills either).

Dead_Cells on Steam_Deck(Arch Linux) bugs audio when "waking" the deck up, help?

After checking in the SD and DC reddits, and finding no solution, I thought maybe getting to the "core" of the matter might help.

Game runs great after loading, but if you put the deck to sleep(tap the power button) and back on, the audio has a significant desync, and can only be resolved by restarting the game. Which kinda defeats the casual nature of the SD.
Any ideas? workaround? restart audio drivers macro or something? \_()_/

Thanks for the help!

A few questions about NVIDIA open GPU kernel module

I haven't played on PC in the past few years, I have a decent PC but I don't have a GPU, I'm considering buying one later this year but I have a few questions about the NVIDIA open GPU kernel module.

  • I'm correct to assume that being integrated into the kernel means that using bleeding edge kernels will no longer cause the driver to break?

  • Is this driver stable or still experimental?

  • Is performance worse, better or the same?

P.S.: I don't want anything from AMD, so please refrain from suggesting that I should buy an AMD GPU. I will decide between NVIDIA and Intel.

Does anyone know how to use windows steam games with ventura macos?

I have a friend that only owns an M1 mac mini 2022. They have ventura macos running and every time we try to get steam games for windows working, using wine or emulators, it doesn't work because they're all made for Catalina. Is there something I am missing here or is there no working packages for this version?

Can you run linux games on windows?

I've been looking around the subreddit and other places to see how to use NFTS formatted drives for linux gaming, the consensus seems to be don't use NFTS drives in linux gaming. So what if i were to wipe a drive, reformat it for linux and run that on windows? What kind of prolems would i run into? Would it even be possible to run the games on windwos due the how the executable files are made, is there a work around?

Is it better to just rip the bandaid off and reformat all of my mass storage drives but 1 and format them for linux? Are there any games I should be looking out for when uninstalling (loss of progress)?

Google Login doesn't work (Lutris)

I managed to install Rise of Kingdoms using Lutris and the game is now running fine thanks to a lot of help I got in this subreddit, but now I have problems with Google Account login.

I'm on ubuntu 22.04 using Lutris. Whenever I click on the google account login button, it opens a browser so I can login, but after I insert my gmail, it says the browser is not secure.

How do I open it in another browser or change Wine's default browser?

Help with an old visual basic game

Hello, I'm having trouble getting this old visual basic game from the 2000s to a playable state and was wondering if any of you Linux gurus/wizards could lend me a hand. The game is free to play on Steam so anyone can try it, however it is spanish-only for the time being and also you'll need to create an account to play.

This the game: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1956740/Argentum_Online/

Website: https://www.ao20.com.ar/

Also the game is libre under GPL license, the source code is on github: https://github.com/ao-org

You can even download the client and server which is cool.

Now on to the problems. First I used protontricks to install the visual basic runtime (vb6run) and the mfc42 dll since the game doesn't install them by default and it will straight up not launch without them. Now I'm able to get the game to run, the launcher works fine and I can login but once I'm logged it looks like crap (here's some pictures detailing the issue: https://imgur.com/a/dZtO0RE). Sadly this is as far as my troubleshooting abilities go, I tried different proton versions (experimental, stable, next, various proton GEs) all with the same result. Don't know if there's anything else I should be doing? I don't think this is relevant but I'm using latest PopOS, any info I'm missing please feel free to ask.

It's easy to install visual novels on Linux using protong/wine?

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking about moving to linux on my notebook. It's easy to install visual novels (basically stand alone exe games) on Wine/proton? I know that steam make everything easy, but many of them are not on steam so I wanted to know if I can still run them

I would use it a lot for that since it's a really light workload

Missing GStreamer plugin and decoders (Lutris)

I'm new to Wine and Lutris. I'm using Lutris on Ubuntu 22.04 and I have managed to install Rise of Kingdoms based on other posts that I found, but when I run the game, after I choose a civilization, the games freezes at "Loading 100%" screen. Everything runs fine in the game menu, until I choose a civilization and try to start the game.

I have googled it already and only found the solution for older ubuntu versions. I tried to install the GStreamer plugins like other guides mentioned, but it didn't work. I tried to run it on terminal so I can see what happened and I got the following errors:

Lags on macbook pro m1

Hello,

I tried to run skyrim and far cry 3 on Macbook Pro M1 via Wineskin. For the most part (except the main menu of skyrim), i saw very low fps even on lowest settings.
I am using latest "WS11WineCX64Bit22.0.1-1" engine. Are there any optimization to be made or is the wine engine correct? Or is it just lag due to using wineskin?

Thanks.

Stupid Question: Has anyone attempted to make a DirectX-equivalent for Linux?

See title.

I know there's render APIs like OpenGL, and Vulkan. What I'm asking is if any work has been done to reverse-engineer a DirectX copy? I imagine there's some potential legal peril if you were to crack open (disassemble) the compiled libraries and reconstruct them, but there's gotta be an API doc out there that says what constructs are provided, and what they're expected outputs are.

I'm a software developer, but I don't typically deal with systems-level code. That said, I've had to reverse-engineer a library or two over the years, so I know the process to a degree. I'm just wondering if someone might elucidate the topic for me, as it seems odd how many compatibility issues come up in discussions about Linux gaming

Advice Request: Multi-GPU Configuration

Hello, I'm looking for some advice getting cards setup on my rig. Let me describe my hardware.

eGPU: Razer Core X Chroma

eGPU card: RX 580 (stable) RTX 3090 (unstable)

Laptop: Razer Blade Advanced 15 (2021)

Laptop card: RTX 3070 + Intel built-in

OS: Ubuntu 22.04

The hardware of my blade seems to work fine with the RX 580. The drivers that end up getting loaded are the `i915` for the built-in Intel, `amdgpu` for the RX 580, and `nvidia-drm` for the RTX 3070. (The driver number for the nvidia card is 525) This configuration allows me to use the 3070 to game and turns the 580 into a glorified display adapter. This is fine for 95% of the usage of my machine. I want to start using the 3090 for playing some more graphically demanding games. Also to give my 3070 a rest as I'm sure the heat exposure of prolonged gaming sessions is not doing any favors for the longevity of the battery in my blade.

My assumptions going into this was that the Nvidia cards were going to play nice with each other since they are using the same driver. Both 30xx cards are showing up in the Nvidia settings tool. The fans spin. All signs of life are there. What is not there is anything at the login screen IF I have the monitors connected to the eGPU's card turned on. I've been able to get around this by typing blind to log-in to log in. At that point I get my desktop on the eGPU's monitors, but nothing on the built-in monitor. This is tolerable but the real problem is that some applications are not rendering correctly on the monitors that work. I found that VS code and firefox displayed no problem. Slack and Chrome were displaying a chunk of the desktop behind the window. The appropriate graphics would not render no matter the window size or min then maximizing the window. This tells me that there is a problem with the driver.

Any suggestions about how I might see if the driver is working alright?

My next steps are to attempt to disable the onboard 3070 with Bumblebee. If that doesn't work, I'm going to try to configure the 3090 as a sink in xrandr. Do those sound like reasonable things to do?

I found this article which outlines some of the complications that I am going to run into. Sounds like the most popular solution is to control workload with Bumblebee. Does that track with folks that are using Bumblebee for multi-GPU configurations?

Anyone have any luck launching vkBasalt or MangoHud with a native Linux game?

I've found that I can them to run in Proton games on Steam, but native Linux games, like Left 4 Dead 2 don't run either of them. MangoHud has a bit on their GitHub about LD_PRELOAD being overwritten in some games, but this doesn't seem to be the case for Left 4 Dead 2. Wondering if anyone else has dealt with this problem and found a solution.

I'm developing a colorful shoot 'em up for Linux with my own open source game engine: Eigengrau

Hello everyone,

I've been working on a shoot 'em up for quite some time now and I would like to share it here with you.

The game is called Eigengrau and it is a colorful shoot 'em up with varied and non-repetitive gameplay beyond the familiar shooting and dodging. Every situation, every enemy, and every boss offers a different handcrafted experience.

It is mainly inspired by games from Treasure and Nintendo, but also by my own passion for games which constantly offer new ideas and challenges.

The game is primarily developed on Fedora and is made with a custom and open source C++ game engine based on the SDL library. Of course it is not necessary anymore to create your own game engine, but I always had fun working on technology, figuring out how something works, and staying in control, and I think many people on this subreddit can relate to that. :-)

I plan to release this game in a couple of months on Steam and itch.io for Windows, Linux, and macOS. A demo is already available with stages 0+1+2 and I'm currently working on the remaining content, improvements, and fixes. You can also find more videos, screenshots, and info on the store pages.

And of course the Steam Deck should be fully supported. ;-)

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you! :-)
Martin

Difference between Basic Wine+DXVK, Wine-proton, Wine-Fshack

I couldn't find any clear answer about that.

I installed Wine 8+DXVK using this guide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4hL2o3a7jo

But then i installed Lutris and got access to different wine versions, some with proton and some with "Fshack".

I tried 2 games but i don't see any clear difference in framerate between the 3 versions,

Can someone explain to me what is the difference between the vanilla wine+dxvk, and the lutris version with Proton and the other one with fshack, which one should i use for better performance knowing that i have an old pc ?

Thanks for any anwser.

Steamtinkerlaunch issue with texgen and dyndolod for skyrim

When I try to launch texgen or dyndolod through MO2 via Steamtinkerlaunch, I get the error e-platformexception:TTaskDialog requires Windows Vista or later, and then either application will force close. Other tools such as wrye bash and sseedit work just fine, and texgen launches perfectly when run directly from the executable using just WINE. How can I fix this so that these applications can launch through steamtinkerlaunch mo2? (I want dyndolod and texgen to be connected to MO2's vfs).

Can I Passthrough my GPU in laptop [ASUS TUF FX505DT]?

I have Asus TUF FX505DT laptop whose specs are:

AMD Ryzen 3750H

Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650

32GB RAM (upgraded RAM recently) 3200MHZ

512 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD

Currently Windows 11.

I am installing a new SSD in it and since I have only 1 SSD slot old SSD has to go. I am doing this mainly because I want to have more space for games (work laptop is different).

In new SSD , I was thinking of installing linux either Ubuntu/Pop_OS or Arch based distro since I haven't tried Arch yet(except Manjaro). I wanted to know that can I passthrough GPU in any of these distros in laptop. I am thinking of installing windows 10/11 as VM inside linux for playing games.

Forza Horizon 4 stable on Nvidia with GE-Proton7-24 and MSSA disabled

After hours of tinkering, I finally found a way to play this game without any crashes (even after 4 consecutive hours, configuration tested 10 hours total) :

  • No Feral GameMode allowed (no gamemoderun %command% in steam Launch options)
  • You need to use GloriousEggroll GE-Proton7-24 (you can use ProtonUp-Qt)
  • Before the first run with GE-Proton7-24, remove the steamapps/compatdata/1293830 if it exists (in your steam install folder)
  • Before the first run with GE-Proton7-24, disable Shader Pre-Caching, then re-enable it to generate new cache (in Steam > Settings > Shader Pre-Caching)
  • In-game, disable MSAA in the video settings, you can set the other settings as you like

Tested on .deb and Flatpak Steam on two differents computers, with a 3050ti and a 3080.

Work with and without multiplayer enabled.

My main config :

  • Distro: Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS
  • Kernel: 5.15.0-58-generic
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • GPU Driver: NVIDIA 525.60.11
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-10600K @ 4.10GHz

Frequent steam crashing

Has steam been crashing constantly only when playing games recently for anyone? All of a sudden its crashing steam client and the game after about 5 minutes in game, problem is it just started doing this randomly not after any package updates or anything unless it was a steam update but steam updates itself so its a bit harder to tell if it started to happen after a steam update. Just trying to get a general idea on the issue, not expecting anyone to actually help solve it unless you have an idea what it may actually be.

Curious why I might have worse Apex Legends FPS with tkg-pds than -zen, any thoughts?

I just switched to Linux full time last month and was poking around with different optimizations and such, currently running Garuda with Linux-Zen.

I compiled and loaded up tkg-pds with 4ms RR, 1000hz polling, fysnc, and Zen2 architecture set (I'm likely blanking on other settings, but those seemed most relevant?) and my FPS in Apex (with almost all low-medium settings) tanked from an avg of 250-300 FPS (with zen) to 120-200 FPS (with tkg-pds).

I wonder if my Ryzen 5 3600xt is just shitting the bed with the different scheduler?

Other relevant specs:

3080ti, 48GB of RAM, Ryzen 3600xt (i know, i know, it's due for an upgrade soon), and an Hynix NVME.

I wonder if I recompiled tkg with a different scheduler if it might make a difference? I was kinda shocked to see such a dramatic drop in average performance. I did not run mangohud to see if there was specific improvements across other realms though.

Any thoughts would be neato! thanks

OOM - Organizes Obvious Mods - A Terminal Based MO for Bethesda Games

Hello everyone!

I've started making a mod organizer a few days ago, and it's finally in a state where it can be safely updated without forgetting your config.

https://github.com/cyberrumor/oom

I could use some testing to see what bugs are available to squash still.

It doesn't support FOMOD installers yet, but with some massaging you can still use it with FOMODS.

It should work with Skyrim, Skyrim SE, Oblivion, and Fallout 4. It could probably be made to work with other titles too but I either don't own them or haven't gotten around to testing them yet.

My goals for the project are to keep it lightweight and easy to use. I don't want to install anything with pip to use this. If you're on Arch, the only deps you should need are p7zip and python3 from the official repos. I don't plan on incorporating any sort of Nexus integration, dependency resolution, automated load order sorting, or hooks into external tools. I don't want to make a ton of commands that you have to memorize the syntax for to use it. I personally keep my load order pretty tight, and it's great for this.

I've only tested this while starting with a vanilla game state. It won't be able to scan your game dir for pre-existing plugins, but if they were already listed in Plugins.txt, you should still be able to rearrange them and enable/disable them.

This expects you to be using the distro version of Steam, not the Flatpak one. If you use the Flatpak Steam, it might still work, but you'll have to open up oom.py and tweak some stuff. If you're using GOG or wherever else the games released, you'll have to massage oom.py too.

Let me know if you made it crash and how, and I'll look into it.

Trying to run Tropico 6 from EGS in Lutris

Hello

So I have installed tropico 6 in Lutris through EGS. When I run the game though, it is stuck in the "initializing game" in the welcome to tropico screen. Won't go beyond that as it just has the loading circle going on forever.

Any suggestions?

Trouble with steam and sd card

Hi, i have a laptop with very low storage, so i wanted to install a couple of steam games on the 32gb sd card that i have. At first it worked and my games were installed and ran completely fine, but after i turned it off and on again, steam didn't recognize that the games were installed, even though all the files are still in the sd card and i can run the games from there. When i try to change the download destination folder, my sd card doesn't apear, only my main storage. I'm using Linux Mint 21.1 Xfce btw. Any suggestions to fix this so steam shows me the games from the sd card? (srry for the broken english)

Can somebody explain Gamescope and Wayland? (re: trying to learn Linux graphics stack)

I'm trying to learn about the Linux graphics stack (with a focus towards the Steam Deck and gaming) but I'm a bit confused. I'm coming from Windows which doesn't really have the concept of display server, compositors, window managers, desktop environments, etc.

Can somebody tell me if I'm understanding correctly?

Wayland is only a protocol/specification. Gamescope is an implementation of this protocol/server.

When you play a game on Steam (ie. Game Mode) it runs on Gamescope (server) and XWayland (client; x11 -> wayland translation).

1) When the Steam Deck boots into Game Mode, does the Steam Client run under Gamescope (ie. Wayland) ?

2) When you run a game (XWayland), does it create a separate "session" under Gamescope? If so, what does this mean?

3) KDE uses X11 (I think), so can Gamescope run on top of it or does Gamescope not work in Steam Deck Desktop mode?

4) What is a desktop environment (ie. KDE?). Is it just an X11/Wayland "application" (or "game" equivalent) ?

Thanks for any help in helping me understanding this!

Launching directly into a game using GeForce NOW Electron?

Hey yall, I have a question for those who use GFN-Electron. I love the client but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to use it to launch a game directly (bypassing the frontend where you manually select a game and hit PLAY). It appears to be possible based on this section of the Wiki:

Directly launching a game from the desktop

Launch a game manually as per usual through the GFN library.

Once the game is started, use theControl + Shift + Pkeyboard shortcutto create a desktop launcher for that game.

From now on, you can use that launcher to run that game directly, either straight from your desktop environment, or byadding it as a non-Steam gameand launching it straight through Steam.

However, when I hit CTRL + SHIFT + P after launching a game as instructed, nothing seems to happen. I'm also unclear on the terminology here, as I'm not sure what they mean by "launcher." Does it somehow build an AppImage? A .desktop entry file, which seems more likely? It's kinda vague.

For what it's worth I'm using the flatpak which is the latest release version, and this is on the Steam Deck desktop so Arch + KDE Plasma.

Introducing Friendly Linux Players (FLiP), an inclusive online gaming community of Linux enthusiasts

In mid 2017, I created the Friendly Linux Players community. My biggest goal: to provide a more specifically-inclusive Linux gaming community. The community is primarily focused around the Matrix space, and we are pretty small at the moment. I intended to share FLiP publicly once I had something more interesting to show, and I feel that I do now!

I recently got a Matrix bot that I've been creating into a minimally-viable state. The main feature is the ability for anyone in the community to schedule a gaming event through a CLI-like chat interface in the main Matrix room, without requiring moderator intervention.

Some of you may know me from my work years ago with SteamLUG, where I hosted gaming events, cohosted (among other work) the podcast (SteamLUG Cast), and acted as a moderator. When I created FLiP, one thing I dreamed of was to improve on the event hosting that SteamLUG had by allowing anyone to easily host. At the time, I envisioned this being through our website, but I'm pretty happy with the chat bot solution we have landed on!

If you have interest in an inclusive Linux gaming community, and especially if you want to join or host community gaming events, please join us!

Proton games won't launch for other users

I have 2 users on my PC. The "primary" one installed all the games and is the admin. The "secondary" one does have read write and execute permissions on the drive where the games are stored though.

I've run into an issue where games using proton won't launch on the secondary user. That user can update them, remove them, install them, but can't play games installed by the primary user. Native Linux games don't have this problem, so it seems to be a proton issue. This isn't just a limitation of proton though because these games used to run fine from both users.

Any ideas how to solve this? It's a huge hassle using one user for everything since they have very different Gnome extensions setup for different people.

Specs: Ryzen 3700x, RX 6800 XT, 16GB RAM. Games are installed on a 2TB hard drive, boot drive is 512GB NVME.

Clean solutions to Discord RPC on Wine?

This https://github.com/mellowagain/rpc-wine no longer works because Discord Rich Presence no longer uses discord-rpc.dll. And while https://github.com/0e4ef622/wine-discord-ipc-bridge works, it's annoying to have to go ALL the way to the .exe and start it for every single application I want to run; it only supports one at a time and closes itself when the application stops sending RPC. I can make it run along side Steam games fine to alleviate this annoyance, but for non-Steam games I am SOL because .desktop files only support a single system command, which can only contain one application at a time, but since I'd need to run two at a time to make it cleanly work with my non-Steam games, I would need to manually run it for any non-Steam game, making this .exe solution also not viable to CLEANLY solve this issue.

Are there any CLEAN solutions that work without me having to start something or take extra steps for every single game I run? Thanks

I know, with such new hardware would be way easier to just use a rolling release, but I have multiple distros on my PC and I prefer to stick to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS for the one I use for work. And no, Pop_OS is not an option, I really want to know if this can work with Ubuntu LTS.

As far as I know I need to satisfy the following requirements to make Ubuntu 22.04 to work with a Radeon RX 7900 XTX:

  1. Kernel 6.x+
  2. LLVM 15+
  3. Mesa 22.3+
  4. latest linux-firmware for /lib/firmware/amdgpu/ (and rebuild initramfs)

For the kernel I can fetch the latest from the kernel ppa, but what about the other 3? Are there any good and well known PPAs?

Btw, anyone manage to make this work on Ubuntu 22.04 or 22.10 already? Any known bugs?

The Evil Within 2 GOG Version on Heroic Games launcher won't start

So last week GOG gifted a free copy of The Evil Within 2, I downloaded it with Heroic and I tried it to start with Wine-lutris-GE-Proton7-35 and Wine-lutris-fshack-7.2 and it failed to launch. Am I missing something? I played some other games from GOG even old ones and with Wine-lutris-fshack-7.2 it always worked like butter.

I also checked on ProtonDB and is Gold rated.

I am running Nobara 37 (which is basicly is Fedora 37), I have an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X and a Nvidia 2080.

Audio problem in steam games

Anyone had a problem with the audio when running steam games?
Description: after awhile the game will start to have cracking audio then proceed on totally killing the sound.
I notice this only happens in my bluetooth headset, using the laptop speaker is fine.. however, outside steam game.. say browser youtube, spotify or even games from heroic launcher.. the bluetooth audio doesn't break.

LoL with OpenGL in Arch Linux

I know the megathread. I know Lutris. I know Google. I tried several methods, yet it ended up either freezing, closing or crashing. To explain:

Now, My iGPU is pretty old and it doesnt support Vulkan. It only supports OpenGL. I tried installing through Lutris and using OpenGL, but it didnt work. It seems kinda weird because Lutris works fine for others. I think Im doing something wrong. If any of you has a guide how to download league with opengl (lutris or not, doesnt matter ) please show me.

OpenGL is slow and I know it. Though , when I was using Windows and played League, it was running at around 70-80 fps. Mentioning the fact that linux uses much less ram compared to windows , i suppose that ram will make up for the slow pace of opengl. Also taking in consideration the fact that csgo with opengl run almost the same as it did when i had windows. Same for TF2. I will just give it a go.

If any of you can make a guide how to download it with OpenGL, or point me to a guide than i will be very greatful..

Has anyone got success with Microsoft Office on Wine

Sorry if this isn't gaming related but I am tired of having to keep that Spyware Windows on a virtual machine. I do not own a machine that runs either Windows or Mac natively (and I won't change that).

However, I need to use Microsoft Office for my University work. Libreoffice, OnlyOffice and other suites do not give me 100% compatibility. So I just want MS Office to work on wine.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible? I can even use an older version of MS Office, if it would be able to run on Wine or even Bottles.

Thanks :)

Modding skyrim on linux

Hello, I'm trying to get mods like skyrim together and skyui to work on linux. The only way I found to mod a steam copy of skyrim special edition on steam is through steamtinkerlaunch. However when trying either vortex or MO2 I have really bad framerate in-game. I have a Ryzen 9 7900, 32 GB of DDR5 RAM and a 3070 so I doubt the hardware is an issue, I also tested the same mods on a KVM Windows Guest and it performed fine. I want to get this working on linux because I can't get port forwarding working on my vm setup.

How to use a Stadia controller with bluetooth and SDL based games (Dead Cells, Bastion)

FYI - I am sharing this because it took a while to figure it out.

Somehow my freshly unlocked Stadia controller was not recognized by Dead Cells and Bastion when connected via bluetooth to my Arch Linux box. Both are SDL based games, so this will probably apply to similar games.

Adding this to my .bashrc

# taken from line 1451 of https://github.com/gabomdq/SDL_GameControllerDB/blob/master/gamecontrollerdb.txt

export SDL_GAMECONTROLLERCONFIG="05000000d11800000094000000010000,Stadia Controller,a:b0,b:b1,back:b6,dpdown:h0.4,dpleft:h0.8,dpright:h0.2,dpup:h0.1,guide:b8,leftshoulder:b4,leftstick:b9,lefttrigger:a5,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightshoulder:b5,rightstick:b10,righttrigger:a4,rightx:a2,righty:a3,start:b7,x:b2,y:b3,platform:Linux,"

made it work.

Fail to run Dead cells through Lutris with openal.hdll missing error

Basically i have dead cells from gog, and i'm using ubuntu 22.04.

I got the files and i tried to install it through lutris, but lutris didn't detect the game, so i installed it with basic wine and it worked, then i tried to detect the game folder with lutris and yet again it fails to detect the game, so i had to create a custom game profile by selectin the deadcells.exe.

When i tried to launch the game, i got an error : failed to load openal.hdll, i can't understand the problem with lutris knowing that the game launch and work with basic ubuntu wine, but i really want to use all the game optimisations that come with lutris.

is there any way to fix this please ?

Does Linux Improve Gaming Performance on Low-End Devices?

I have a laptop with an i5-5300U and HD 5500 with 8GB's of RAM (so I'm talking REALLY low-end) and I'm curious if switching to Linux would bare any significant improvement in performance when it comes to gaming. I'm not super familiar with Linux but having a reason to would push me in that direction.

If there is potential for a performance increase then what Distro should I go towards exactly? I'd rather stay with something more mainstream like Ubuntu, Fedora, PopOS, ETC. Any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated!

Switch color mode to 16/32 bit? [wine]

So the game I'm trying to play (Katana ZERO through GOG) requires the display to have 16/32 bit color mode (https://i.imgur.com/G3oCM83.png). So far the only potential solution I've found so far is to use xephyr and then change the color mode through xephyr to 16 bit (xephyr gives you the option of 8/16/24 bit color depth).

The launcher that I'm using (Lutris) conveniently has an option to toggle Xephyr and also to choose the color mode. I tried doing it, but for some reason while xephyr seems to be working (the game opens up just fine and the title is xephyr) the same error message is shown and it crashes.

Any sort of help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Xbox Elite Series 2 / Xbox Series X controller remapping in the SDL2 layer prior to interpretation by game over xinput

Kind of at the end of my rope trying to figure this one out, spent weeks on this.

Playing Star Citizen and using an Xbox Elite Series 2 or Xbox Series X controller, connected via bluetooth. These two controllers happen to have the triggers built as axes not buttons.

Star Citizen specifically interprets controller input either as a "gamepad" if it comes in thru the xinput layer, or as a "joystick" if it comes in thru dinput or whatever is happening when you select "override" in the Wine Control Menu -> Game Controllers menu. The game very specifically has a feature set associated with gamepads specifically that I'm trying to take advantage of, and I also am trying to avoid a situation where my xbox controller and actual joystick HOSAS setup are not fighting over the a single joystick keymap. So the goal is to have the xbox controller come in thru xinput.

The issue is the right trigger axis gets interpreted as right stick up/down. Whoever decided this should be "axis 3" at microsoft engineering has caused me SO MUCH pain, because everything works except this. It means that gamepad causes wild scrolling thru the menu unless I hold the trigger exactly halfway down, within the deadzone.

The only remapping feature that exists in Linux that I'm aware is in the SDL2 layer, which should be able to communicate over the xinput layer. I have gone and created remapping SDL2 strings for my controller using multiple different tools, such as AntiMicroX. Those SDL2 strings are fed via Lutris launch options and via an arbitrarily named registry key string composed of the SDL2 remapping string. I have never been able to get the SDL2 remapping string to effectively remap the controller input in xinput despite attempting every possible configuration of registry key DWORD variables, Lutris launch options, WINE Control Panel -> Game Controller xinput/override/disable positions, everything.

I'm aware of the xpadneo project and at some point I pulled out the standard xpad kernel option and hooked in the new xpadneo kernel module and verified it was loaded in and running. It worked to recognize the controller, but in WINE Control Menu -> Game Controller options, I couldn't put the controller in the xinput category and could never get the game to recognize the controller as a "gamepad". AntiMicroX couldn't detect the inputs from the gamepad as well, and I needed it for a workaround where pulling the trigger axis causes mouseclicks so that trigger pull causes you to shoot (star citizen doesn't support mapping axis movement to a button command). I've written about my issue on the xpadneo developer discord but have had my issues addressed. The xone project is specifically for connections via some kind of microsoft dongle rather than bluetooth, where I am using bluetooth. It also does not have a remapping feature.

At every moment the controller is recognized as a dev/js device with correct input in the KDE menu, and as an event node with observerable event output in evtest. I've identified the hidraw node and chmod 666'd it to expose it to the game, in case the game could recognize the controller as a gamepad directly from hidraw input. I've had enabled and disabled the "autoconfigure joypads" option in Lutris.

The only constant has been using lutris-GE-Proton7-15-SC-x86_64 as my 'runner' for the game.

I just want the controller to be recognized as a gamepad in Star Citizen and to be mapped correctly, where the trigger axis isn't confused for one of the right stick axes, and ideally having the trigger axes mapped to buttons (but I already have a workaround with antimicrox).

Awful performance with GTA V (Rockstar Games Launcher version)

Hi, I have a problem with GTA V, the performance is very bad, it opens but it freezes when I try to move the character. I use the Rockstar Launcher so I can't select to use Proton or WineGE, also i can't use it through Lutris because Rockstar Games forces me to open the game through the Launcher. Any solution to use Proton or another way to play GTA V?

Switching Distros

Heya, So I am running Manjaro, and have things working, except of now and then breakages (not having latest packages which broke YUZU for instance), or lacking features (looking at DLSS), and I was thinking of switching to Archcraft or Arco or maybe even Fedora. I was wondering how I should do that as seamlessly as possible? I have a dedicated partition for Root, one for Home, the games are in a seperate drive, so I know that all I need to do is replace Root, and reinstall the needed packages, but will that keep my game saves for instance? and is there a way to simplify the install of packages?

Vulkan Shader Cache Stuttering getting worse?

So back when they added the graphics pipeline for compiling shaders for dxvk in the Vulkan Beta drivers a couple months ago everything was a breeze, Apex Legends compiled shaders so quickly, it took about 10 seconds every map to finish without DXVK_ASYNC. Same for Overwatch, took 10 seconds, both of them without any preloaded shader cache file.
Recently as time went by and nvidia driver updates happened its gotten worse. Apex takes about 5 minutes to compile, same with overwatch. Its not as bad as it used to be way back when, but its so much worse than a couple months ago. Is there a driver version that I should have stayed on?
Im using nvidia driver 525.85.05 on RTX 2070 Super right now. Did they revert some things or did it update to a worse version?

Games play once and then won't launch

Linux newbie here (dabbling for about a year).

Yesterday, I decided to make the switch from Windows to Pop Os. Everything went well and got Star Wars: The Old Republic running through Steam. After playing a couple of times, it stopped working: I would try to launch the game through Steam, but it wouldn't launch. I couldn't find a solution, so I decided to try Fedora. Same thing happened: got everything installed, played SWTOR a couple of times and then it failed to launch. Went back to Windows because I was fed up.

This morning, I turn my laptop (a Lenovo ideapad Gaming 3) on and Microsoft Edge pops up with a bunch of tabs for Shopping. Frustrated, I decide to take the plunge and try Arch. Again, got everything set up (wasn't as difficult as I thought and I really like the pacman and yay), including SWTOR through Steam. Played it a couple of times and again, it will not launch. I have spent the past hour on Google trying to find a fix. Now, I'm trying to install the game through Lutris (never tired it before though) to see if it works.

But, any ideas what's happening?

8bitdo ultimate config on Lutris/Wine

Proton/Steam Gaming with nvidia card: Pop OS vs Nobara

If I were going to be gaming as 30% of my use case, which distro should I be looking at in terms of Proton/Steam/nvidia support?

Either distro will handle the other 70% of my usage/workflow.

Pop OS is tried and true and has well-documented support for Team Green, but Nobara is focused on gaming and has a lot of nice gaming-focused features OOTB.

Just wondering what you peeps think. Nobara is also a pretty 'niche' distro and that concerns me.

What's strange is that I can still hear the music from the game, and the music stopped when I hit the sigterm section of REISUB, so I think it's probably graphics related (further backed up by the "INFO: task nvidia-modeset/:632 blocked for more than 122 seconds." messages in my journal. There's also whatever this is:

XBox Gyroscope?

From the title, you might assume if I'm asking if an Xbox controller has gyro (not what I'm doing).

Is there any software that would allow me to emulate a PlayStation controller (DS3, DS4, Dualsense) with an Xbox controller and either a wiimote or joycon?

Halo MCC MP

Hey, I'm trying to find a workaround on my mac to play MCC co op with friends but the anti cheat doesn't like virtual machines apparently. Anyone had experience with a method that might trick the anticheat or something? I hate that Microsoft never even tried to support Mac even though there are paying customers here

Glibc breaking EAC (half PSA half rant)

So I just got back and have been trying to play games, always having EAC tell me easy anti-cheat isn't working. Turns out

https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/issues/6051

Glib 2.36 is breaking EAC. Most people on non-rolling distros ought to be fine but I think gaming on linux has become popular enough this probably should have been tested at least once before it was pushed to the main arch repos since as far as I can tell this affects everyone who updates. (I get that with something like arch some breaks are to be expected but I mean, come on, how did no-one test this, linux gaming isn't exactly the niche thing it was a decade, or hell even a half decade ago now.)

Supposedly the flatpak version of the steam client ought to fix this, but I installed it and have the same error. So, fuck me I guess.

Red Dead Redemption Dont Start

Hello, im trying run red dead (Steam Version) on my computer, but but I always come up with this error "ERR_GFX_D3D_DEFERRED_MEM". When playing on windows worked normal, but I saw that this error also happens there for some people.

I saw in forums that it would be necessary to replace the vulkan by directx12 in the game configuration file that is in the document folder in windows, but I do not find this folder in linux, nor wine.

Could anyone tell you where I can find this folder with the game settings or if there is another way to solve?

I'm trying to access ProtonTricks - i installed a 32bit prefix of the game and now I have the "which packages would you like to install" menu window open

but there are no direct mentions as to DirectDraw or Direct3D, is it possible to install these modules and play the Steam version of the game?

I'm trying to access Windowed mode which causes this issue - regular game works fine - but it would be an awesome littly' clicky game to have running while watching a movie on the side.

My experience with trying to exclusively use Linux to game

Let me start off by saying that I've always used Linux. I got my passion to get into Computer Science and work in the field due to Ubuntu 12.04 over 10 years ago because my family couldn't afford a new computer when our core 2 duos couldn't run Windows that great anymore. So I have a lot of experience tweaking and messing around with the OS to get things where I want them.

I decided to try and move my gaming workflow to Linux because I spent more and more time under Linux when I am not gaming these days due to things like shairport-sync and easy effects since my desktop have the best speakers and subwoofer I own. However, I am starting to get extremely fed up with it. I swear I spend more time trying to fix the damn thing (screw network streaming issues too) than playing video games on my time off.

I target 120fps at 3440x1440 and the games just are not performing at all similar to Windows outside of games like Hades. Some games that people are reporting that they work perfectly fine DO NOT work perfectly fine on my setup with the exact settings that are used on ProtonDB. Halo Master Chief Collection is always one brought that works amazingly. I *expect* 120 fps locked like I get on Windows. Booting it up on Fedora 37 gives me a whooping 60-120fps stuttery mess of an experience and never stays locked at 120 fps, and it never stabilizes at any frame rate so you get a stuttery mess because it hops from 60 to 80 to 110 then back down to 65. `DXVK_ASYNC` does nothing for this awful performance. Windows does not exhibit this behavior so it is not my hardware. (Yes, I am using a Samsung NVME drive so read/write times aren't the cause here either)

The Steam Deck on the other hand is great and runs games for some reason that won't even boot on my PC. Black Ops 2 Zombies being a prime example, white screen on my PC when booting with the *same* version of Proton-GE on both of them. Steam Deck works, but PC refuses to do anything else other than a white screen. Tons of frame time issues on my PC when running Hot Pursuit Remastered at 60 fps on my ultrawide monitor at 1440P. Steam deck frametime for the same game is smooth as butter. I'm not sure what to make of this since it is way less powerful than my PC.

I will forever love Linux for programming and all of my server needs. I really like where the industry is going for gaming on Linux. But I just can't seem to ever get these magical experiences that everyone else is getting for gaming. That said though, I can't wait for more hardware running Linux.

Horizon Zero Dawn crashes Everytime

Hello,

I keep trying to boot up horizon zero dawn on steam. Runs pretty well. I get about 70-80 fps, but I seem to keep running into an issue whilst playing. Game seemingly runs fine until about a minute after. The game freezes for seemingly no reason. I can hear the game in the background as if its still running, but the display is frozen. Not sure if anyone can help me. Ive tried uninstalling, reinstalling, repairing local files, trying different proton versions. Nada. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

PUBG addict desperate for replacement

Switched to Linux a few months ago and my PUBG cravings have not gone away yet. Cuisine Royale ("""CRSED""") is the closest I've found but it's quite a goofy feeling game and not many people play it. But it's the only thing that can come close to giving me my PUBG gameplay loop fix.

Are there any other proper battle royal games on Linux that work that I'm forgetting? Besides Apex, it's great but it doesn't have the gritty third/first person looty one-man-show vibe that PUBG does.

Stay away from XTX SWFT210 RX6650XT

This thing even touts Linux support right on the box. It does not work to its full potential out of the box even on the newest drivers and kernel. If you don't want to have to use CoreCTRL or set your GPU clock to performance manually every single session, stay away from this card. Something refuses to allow the card to go beyond 700MHz when gaming, it needs to be manually set by the user. It is not yet ready for primetime, even on Windows.

I returned it and purchased an MSI RX6600XT. Slight downgrade but it works out of the box, no having to set clock speeds manually.

Low performance in CSGO

While running CSGO natively from Steam I have around 80-90 FPS in menu and around 25-40 FPS in match, in Danger Zone even less about 20-30FPS. Considering laptop specifications and the fact that CSGO is native on Linux, my performances should be way better, right? What can I do to make it happen?

So here are my specs, it's a Dell E5570:

i7 67820hq

16gb ram

Amd r7 m370

Performances are measured running the with DRI_PRIME=1 to force it to use my Disrete Graphics card, got a slight boost in performance but nothing big.

What do I lose (specific to gaming) by switching to linux full time?

I've been using Linux for over 20 years but I've always had a windows install for gaming. When I was younger I dual booted now I just run two machines + a KVM. I got my steam deck about a month ago and it's really made me consider making the switch full time. I play mostly single player games so anti-cheat is a non issue for me and the one online game i play runs great. I'm more concerned about specific features like DLSS and ray tracing. Do these work via proton/wine. So much of the info out there is old and can't be trusted. I've got my old gaming rig set up as a test machine. It games great but its running a 1080 so I can't really test DLSS RTX etc. I guess I'm just looking for a bit more info before I decide to make any big changes to my main rig.

Currently running a 3080 and 5900X if it's relevant. thanks for reading

Does Insurgency Sandstorm really work with Proton and EAC?

I decided to try playing Sandstorm again after seeing lots of good reports on protondb, but whenever I try and start it I just get EAC "unexpected error (#1)".

I remember it worked well a couple of years ago, but this was just because a recent update had meant EAC was inactive anyway and it soon stopped working. So I'm wondering if all these "works out the box" reports on protondb are just reports from people who tried the game soon after an update had been released and so EAC didn't matter.

I've tested EAC with fall guys on my PC and that still works fine. That's the only other game I have that I can test EAC with.

In Harmony - Call for collaborators

Hello everybody! I came up with an idea for a game that will be exclusive to Linux and I think it's easily realizable in Godot. I don't have the full GDD complete yet but if anyone interested the main idea is as follows:

Maya, an Electrical Engineer at the Saharian Solar Grid project is having serious pains on the back
of the right shoulder. She goes to the doctor but he can't find what's wrong with her.
The next night, she dreams of a human named Jenova who tells her than all humans on Earth are
clones of the First Humans that were put here to conquer the planet in harmony with other creatures.
We have failed though so they're coming to terminate us.

The Gitlab page of the game is here. Anyone who would like to participate or even fork the project is more than welcome to do so. I'm personally thinking of a Zelda-like game where the main character gets some magical abilities to save the world from the evil that exists in it. :)

"Dominion of Darkness" - text-based simulator of Dark Lord/Lady

"Dominion of Darkness is an interactive fiction/strategy text-based game in which the reader/player takes on the role of a Sauron-style Lord of Darkness with the goal of conquering the world. He will carry out his plans by making various decisions. He will build his army and send it into battles, weave intrigues and deceptions, create secret spy networks and sectarian cults, recruit agents and commanders, corrupt representatives of Free Peoples and sow discord among them, collect magical artifacts and perform sinister plots. Note one game takes about 1 hour, but the premise is that the game can be approached several times, each time making different decisions, getting different results and discovering something new. Feedback is very much welcome. Very, very much. https://adeptus7.itch.io/dominion

Dualshock 4 invisible everywhere outside of Wine whenever I launch Wine when android-udev installed

I have a Dualshock 4 V2 and an 8BitDo SN30 Pro+. I use them for gaming on Linux, and the latter I prefer to use in "Mac mode" (Dualshock 4 V1 emulation) because in the only other mode with analog triggers, XInput mode, I've noticed some input issues like the left stick freezing once in a while. Haven't seen any such issues with Mac mode or the Dualshock 4, but I have a different problem while the android-udev Arch package is installed, Wine appears to take some sort of "exclusive claim" over the gamepad. When I launch Wine, both pads (of which the 8BitDo pad in Mac mode) seem to disappear to all of my system except for Wine they're not in /dev/input/js, nowhere in /dev/input/by-id, not visible to Linux games. Programs running under Wine (including AntimicroX, Trackmania United Forever and Tony Hawk's Underground) do see them though. Haven't tried running Proton at the same time as Wine but Steam doesn't see the gamepad, so I'm not sure Proton would either.

I even looked at dmesg and found a path under /sys/devices (that is, /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.3/0000:02:00.0/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.3/), and I noticed that normally, the driver symlink there points to /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usbhid, and there's a subdirectory 0003:054C:05C4.0003 (as promised by dmesg) with a driver symlink pointing to /sys/bus/hid/drivers/sony. However, after I launch Wine, that subdirectory disappears and the driver symlink in the first directory points to usbfs instead of usbhid. After I wineserver -k to end every Wine process then sudo udevadm trigger, the driver symlink disappears altogether, but unplugging the controller and plugging it back in after killing Wine (whether or not I run the udevadm command) restores it to normal.

While writing this post, I discovered that the package android-udev (on Arch Linux), required by android-tools (ADB, Fastboot etc.), is directly connected to this issue. Removing it fixes it. The only possible reason I can see as to why it might be connected would be this part of the udev rules introduced there:

# Sony
ATTR{idVendor}=="054c", ENV{adb_user}="yes"

Thing is that this vendor ID is also the vendor ID for the Dualshock 4 and compatible controllers.

Does anyone have any idea why exactly this happens and how to fix this issue while keeping android-tools installed? If it helps, I've seen this issue in Linux kernel versions at least 6.1.1 to 6.1.7, Wine version 7.22 (same behavior in stable and staging).

Share Window Sound in Discord with One Click (Pipewire)

So I was trying somewhat automate the process of connecting sound ports for Pipewire and thought of filtering through all the available nodes in Pipewire with a PID. It occurred to me that you can get the PID of the process that owns a window with xprop, so why not combine these together?

https://github.com/behy10000/share-window-sound

All you need to do is to install jq, save the script somewhere and add two hotkeys if you like, or run the commands whenever you need to. See the repo for more info.

You can also use this if you want to quickly play a sound in the voice chat without sharing the screen.

I don't think this is an elegant solution and it will not perform well if the program has multiple processes, but this is just a proof of concept and I believe someone with a lot more experience and knowledge can make a better one using this method, or even better we get a third-party client that can share a window and its sound as you would in windows.

The script can be used for other programs too. Read the usage part of the repo for more info.

Problems with Proton

I have been using a GTS 450 for gaming and now have upgraded to a Vulkan capable GPU.

I was able to run my games through the Wine version of Steam (installed via PlayOnLinux). Now that I have a Vulkan GPU I cannot run GTA Vice City through Proton. The games are on a NTFS partition. I think it could be the partition, but I want someone experienced to tell me.

I do not want to deal with backups and formatting now (the disk is a 8TB one). If anyone has a solution to this (I did not try other games, but I think they are not going to work either(windows based games through proton)).

Steam doesn't convert PS4 controller input into XBOX input

As I've read steam should convert PS4 controller input into XBOX controller input for games that do not natively support PS4 controllers. However, this doesn't seem to be working for me.

I have turned on the settings for "PlayStation Configuration Support" via Big Picture on steam.

The games I've tried playing are:

Death Stranding, Which does have PS4 controller support and did work.

The Binding of Isaac, which does not have support and therefore did not work.

In all cases the controller was still working as the touch-pad still moved the cursor and the controller was able to navigate the Big Picture menu.

I have tried using ds4drv but to no avail, also tried playing games which did not work with and without Proton.

Linux recommendation for a Legion 5 with a 1660Ti

Hey guys, I want to remove Windows from my laptop and switch exlusively to Linux. Last time I did it on a Lenovo Y700 with a GTX 960M (Ubuntu LTS) and had a lot of driver issues causing screen flickering which I then reverted. Is anyone running the 1660Ti mobile on Linux here?

DXVK ASYNC was removed from ProtonGE

Keep in mind that DXVK_ASYNC is now removed (has no effect any more) and will be replaced with gpl in the drivers. AMD people can already enable it by adding RADV_PERFTEST=gpl to the steam launch commands.

Fall Guys with Esync shows significant improvement in FPS

I am using proton stable with Heroic Launcher. Fall Guys without esync will have huge FPS drops (~185 FPS) when there are tons of players running at the same area and have random stutters in the game. With esync, there is almost no stuttering happening and the FPS drops (~220 FPS) are much smaller. It even runs better than Windows .

Workaround for EA Games launcher issue

Some users were reporting that since Origin was replaced with the new EA Games launcher on Steam, they were having issues running any game that uses it. Myself included, I haven't been able to play BFV or Battlefront 2 since this switch happened, it would never get past the installation process. The reported Proton Experimental updates that provided protonfixes for this situation didn't work for me and it was persistent across different PCs and installations, basically tied to my account. I saw the EA Games launcher setup window try to do something then show a warning sign with no text.

Anyway, I've discovered my fix was to simply click Sign In on their site and login there through Steam by clicking the Steam logo. It'll immediately (re?)authenticate with Steam- and instantly this made all EA Games able to launch again. Just thought I was share this because I hadn't seen it shared before I found it myself, hope it helps someone, I'm super happy I can finally play my EA games again!

Controller goes wild on WoW

So I just started playing WoW and installed it through lutris (first time I install anything this way). Apart from getting a some error code (I just ignore it) every time I open battle.net and the game needing to update every time for like 5 seconds, it seems to work just fine.

However, I'm now too used to using a controller in an mmo since that's the way I play FFXIV (on PS5). So I look around and it seems you can do pretty much the same on WoW with a simple addon (I use a PS5 controller). I drop the files where I'm supposed to and start the game... Aaaand the camera just goes nuts. I thought it might just be a deadzone problem but any direction I press the sticks towards tries to activate like 3-4 different inputs on my action bar. Same with every button. I tried without the addon, and the same thing happens so I guess it is not just a problem with the addon.

Any guidance on this? I'm still pretty new to both WoW and Linux gaming (I mostly just play steam stuff which is easy)

Some extra information: I messed up the WoW installation a couple times (not reading instructions properly) so now I have 2 WoW installations showing up on lutris, one that doesn't run and one that runs fine (as described above)

Moving away from apple.. what laptops do you recommend?

Not sure if this is the right place so delete if needed.

Want to move away from apple's silicon as they are locking everything down & until there's a full linux gpu driver there's no way of gaming properly on them anymore. Also they want devs to pay them to use their app store for games on mac & I think they have to be exclusive to the mac app store so possibly not allowed on steam anymore.

I've been looking at Asus, Lenovo & HP laptops. Workstation or gaming types.

Anyone got recommendations on what they use?

Main thing is it must have a decent trackpad & screen. Everything else GPU CPU can vary.

Is ChimeraOS good for emulation and free games?

I am always Windows user and wanted to install Linux (cause I am bored of Windows). But I want OS distro to have console-like UI, support to emulation and FREE games (you know what I mean) for my old PC to play games before PS3/360 era. The closest one I found is OS called ChimeraOS which is built upon Steam's big picture mode. It's got dedicated gaming UI but I have no idea if it fulfills my other 2 requirements (they said it in their website that they support to emulation and non-steam games, but there's no more detailed articles about it). Anyone who are ChimeraOS users tell me if it's the right OS that fulfils all my 3 requirements? Or is there any other Linux distro better than this? Forgive me if it's stupid question but I have no idea about Linux systems and also this is first post in this sub.

Mu Online on Linux?

I'm currently using Fedora and always loved playing Mu. So I wanted to know if anyone knows how to make it work. I already tried installing it through Bottles, and Heroic Games Launcher, but none worked. On both I tried using wine-ge-proton7-35.

Even though the game is installed, it only gets me to the launcher. I think it might be something with the anti-cheat system, but I'm not sure, since I couldn't find which one it uses.

I appreciate any help.

My specs are:

  • 12Gb RAM
  • Intel Core i5-7200U
  • NVIDIA GeForce MX110 / Mesa Intel HD Graphics 620 (KBL GT2)
  • Fedora Workstation 37
  • Wayland

6650xt- GPU clock malfunctioning

Both when idle and when I am running an intensive game, my GPU clock shows 0Mhz:

cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_dpm_sclk

0: 0Mhz

1: 0Mhz

Enabling CoreCTRL does not change it. I do have the amdgpu feature mask kernel parameter enabled.

However, if I run this command to change the power level to performance manually, and then run the above afterward, it seems to "turn it on" (it needs to be done every login):

sudo sh -c "echo 'high' > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_dpm_force_performance_level"

cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_dpm_sclk

  1. 500Mhz
  1. 2575Mhz
  2. 2675MHz

Is this normal? If not, how should I go about fixing it? I use amdgpu/mesa and Arch with zen kernel. Could this be a mesa regression having to do with power profiles?

Could this be because I did a GPU upgrade without a reinstallation? It specifying card 0 makes me suspicious this may be the case. This isn't a very popular card, so I sort of feel like I'm on an island here. And for the record it has been about 2 weeks since I got this card and I still have yet to feel the benefits of my upgrade...unless I do the procedure above which improves my situation. linux-firmware-git helped slightly with some stutters but the card is still not fully up to speed for me by default using the latest stable mesa/amdgpu.

some thoughts about the tons of abandonware on steam

As you all may see, steam is full of EEA (eternally early access) games that will not ever come to light in a proper shape.

That's really a pity, and it should make everybody reflect on the business model things are taking inside (and eventually outside) steam store.

you probably have lots of examples, i may serve you some ones: Brawlerz arena and Drag Outer Zones are still in early access and probably will stay where they are. Other games have been "released" but blatantly discontinued, like Goatpunks, Trailblazers, Beasts of prey, eventually savage lands.

Vicious circle: Nobody buy a discontinued game, so the developer doesn't have funds to finish it.

My question is: it's this doom unavoidable? How can a developer sort out this vicious circle?

Just for hypothesis:

1) Release the game as a free to play and (if and when) interests rise, try to monetize with DLCs

2) Release game code as opensource and forget about it

3) creating a public site of auctions for the source codes of dead projects ( i mean this site would certify that a docker/VM with all bells and whistles to continue the development has been delivered)

4) Sell the source and licence to a "preservation" foundation (given the possibility it exists) and get a bunch of bucks. The foundation will harvest this dead projects and eventually revitalize them making them F2P, or opensource, deciding time after time.

The fourth possibility looks to me particularly intriguing. But would require the existence of some kind of ONG committed to that.

What do you think about this issue?

AoE2 DE unplayable on Linux Fedora 37 Steam Play + Proton

Hello, I need some help!

The game runs but I only get around 30 FPS (Proton 5.13-6) and it gets lower as the match progresses, with other Proton versions is even worse 12 FPS max. The menu is extremely laggy on any version.

My desktop PC: AMD Ryzen 5 1400 , 16GB RAM, Nvidia GT 1030 2GB, SSD

AoE2 Game Settings: * Graphic Presets: Low * Resolution: 1920x1080

Fedora 37 fresh installation, NVIDIA Driver Version: 525.78.01 (Proprietary)

Proton versions I've tried: Experimental, 7.0-5, GE-Proton7-45 and 5.13-6

Steam Launch options: gamemoderun %command% SKIPINTRO

(with feral gamemode enabled I get a slight performance improvement)

I've also tried switching to an Xorg session, and disabled V-Sync. On the Nvidia Server Settings program: Force Full Composition Pipeline OFF + Sync to VBlanck OFF+ Allow Flipping OFF + High Performance

Nothing seems to work, any ideas?

P/S 1: In Windows 10 the game runs flawlessly on Medium graphic presets. So I guess no HW problem.

P/S 2: Another game (Bad North) on Steam + Proton runs perfectly (280 FPS).

Overwatch 2 Movement Keys Sticking

Hi all,

So I'm on Pop OS have have been playing Overwatch 2 through Lutris, but I've noticed a weird problem where my movement keys will stick for no reason?

So I'll let go of WASD and my character will just infinitely move in some random direction. I can stop it by pressing that movement key, but it's really annoying. There are several times where I've been close to an edge and just run off the map because my character wouldn't stop moving.

I've seen this is an issue with Blizzard games in general, but I've tried all the advice I've seen online and nothing gets rid of it.

I've tried changing the precision mouse option, lowering my video quality, changing from fullscreen to windowed, nothing seems to work.

Any ideas?

Why performance differs between distros and can i make a distro performs as good as another?

I've been testing some distros and i noticed that some distros have better performance than others in my pc (Ryzen 3 2200G without GPU).

Linux Mint with XFCE, and with AwesomeWM have a better Uniengine Superposition score than PopOS for example, but the latest has better game performance and stability in Borderlands Pre Sequel than the others.

That said, i wanted to know if there's a way to apply such optimizations in another distro, because i wanted to use Arch because of it's up to date's packages (and the ArchInstall script facilitating the installation), but didn't wanted to try Manjaro because i felt it was to bloated.

Non-Steam Game Overlay Not Working

Usually when you add a Non-Steam game to Steam you get the in-game overlay this provides. While this may seem like a minor thing it does affect custom controller bindings on a per-game basis.

This is essential with the Steam controller as it means it defaults to the desktop configuration whenever I launch a Non-Steam game. So no editing on a per-game basis without hassles.

I have set a "controller" profile for the desktop configuration but its missing some key functionality such as 360 joystick for movement (at the moment the left joystick is setup like a d-pad for movement, not ideal).

Please if anyone knows how to fix this let me know. I've loaded SC-Controller which works great except for emulation where Cemu seems to get confused about which controller is running and input stops entirely. Thank you in advance!

gamemode VS CoreCTRL VS cpupower

I'm looking to find which is the best route to enable high performance mode / CPU frequency scaling on my Arch system with GNOME. I use an AMD RX6650xt. I am familiar with these 3 options, and as far as I know it they work like this, based on how I've used them on Arch:

Feral Gamemode- Disables the compositor of the desktop on a per-app basis via a launch command.

cpupower- Provides a systemd package that can be enabled to turn on high performance mode on boot, if configured and uncommented properly, system wide.

CoreCTRL- Does what is says, allows you to do this manually and take control of CPU / GPU clocks with GUI to boot.

Is there a difference between these 3 methods? Could just one suffice? Do they conflict with one another?

Performance mystery with Minecraft.

This is a head scratcher

Both my kids play minecraft java edition on a 11600k, 16GB RAM, nvme drives.

One uses an rtx3060, with fps in the hundreds.

The other upgraded from gtx1600 to rtx3070, but fps hardly went up, and ranges between 20 and 60.

Both run nvidia drivers on Ubuntu 22.10, xorg, with same freq scaling governor and driver.

Both have vsync disabled in nvidia-settings and in game.

What on earth is going on? Why didnt I see a massive fps jump when going rtx3070 w the second machine? I reduced the draw and sim dist, not much help. Graphics Q setting is the middle one.

Elden Ring: Yet another "Inappropriate Activity Detected" Error Experiencer.

Ok So I've been trolling forums for days attempting to find a fix for this, I'm kind of about to give up and either just use a Windows install or say "fuck it" and just forget about playing Elden Ring. So here's a rundown of what's going on, and I'm just hoping someone out there may have solved this problem for themself and may be able to help me out here:

OS: Void Linux, kernel 6.1.6_1. Relatively new install.
GPU: RTX 3070
CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x
Latest proprietary Nvidia drivers, latest steam package on my distro. Latest everything in the repo. Running the game isn't the problem, it plays fine offline, aside from a hideous audio crackling that probably comes from pulseaudio sampling rates or something.

Issue: Game launches fine, but upon pressing any button to proceed from the title screen, I am instantly met with an "Inappropriate Activity Detected" error that prevents me from playing online. One thing of note, is that the error happens INSTANTLY upon entering menu, pressing "Log In" button...most proton versions don't even prompt me with the "accept policy" boxes. This makes me think that it's not even attempting to connect to the servers, which suggests to me that maybe there's an issue with the EAC installation ? Don't know how to repair it though.

What I've tried to fix it: Verifying system locales, timezone, is set up properly. Proton versions
6.x, 7.x, experimental, bleeding edge experimental, GE-Proton7-45, GE-Proton7-43 (between each proton swap, compatdata deleted, files re-verified). Proton EAC Runtime installed/uninstalled. Reinstalling graphics drivers. Countless reboots. Unplugging peripherals. Beta version of steam. Moving Install locations. Reinstalling steam, elden ring many times. I'm not going to try flatpak, it's not worth it. Tried running the game via CLI to check for errors but i don't think it's worth figuring out either.

Is there ANYTHING else I'm missing before I just give up? I don't even really wanna play at this point, just kind of have something to prove. EAC is annoying.

Game freezes system in a bad way. Need a way t log

So i have a fresh install of garuda. Downloaded war thunder.

The game plays better somehow BUT at some point, either if i tab out and back in or it is about to load something like a loading screen the monitor freezes (still image of whatever was happening the moment of event.).

Audio plays normally so i don't think the system actually freezes but the monitor output certainly does. Nothing can be done, even ctrl+f* does nothing. The only way to "fix" the situation is to hold down the power button until my system ceases.

Is there a way for me to run it in the terminal and save every entry in a file?

When it happens i have to suffocate my system so the only way to see the wine entries it to have them saved and open the file after i "reboot".

Play world of warcraft in Linux

Hey guys good night!

I'm asking if someone of this community plays currently wow on Linux right now in 2023 with the actual expansion (Dragonflight) and do the "normal content": Raid and M+, and some PVP.

First of all I like try Linux because I like technology and experiment with that, I can go with windows, but is good have knowledge of others SO (and yeah, I listened so funny stories of Linux). My PC is "decent" so my intention to Linux wasn't get better performance, but yes to experience how well the game runs. Here my specs:

CPU: Ryzen 3400G GPU: Nvidia GTX 1650 RAM: Hyper X Fury at 2933Mhz Storage: Two SSD (128 and 512GB) and two HDD (320GB and 1TB) Board: B450M Gigabyte DS3H V2

I tried that last expansion in patch 9.2 two times and the experience was... Awfully , I mean: First time I tried to play wow with a Linux mint distro (cinnamon) and first of all, the installation wast too bad, but the real problem was when I launch the game and the textures were not renderize well ( I remember that first time I tried a m+, a mist of tirna schite +15 and in the path to the last boss the textures don't renderize well, was sanguine and the blood pools was seeing so bad LMAO) and when I lunch for the first time the game runs so bad, but the main problem was the game crashing in random moments with an error of "read memory" and I was so WTF... Well time later I tried Pop-OS because on the internet said that these distro was so good for videogames, and have support for GPU Nvidia, the experience was a bit better, but yeah, sometimes crashed with the same error of "Read memory" and to open the game you have to open first the launcher...that was a pain in the ass, was horrible.

So I'm was thinking these days of tried again with Linux mint (because that distro I liked more than Pop-OS), but I'm asking to you guys if someone tried this new expansion in Linux, and if works well (because I wanna play, don't break my head trying to fix how lunch the game and don't crash it.

Thanks for read this long post and I'm hopping for some responses!

PD: I see a video that "shows" the performance of dragonflight but only shows a travel of flight path, and his setup was full AMD (I know that and runs better on Linux that Nvidia)

Games stutter when watching YouTube on second monitor

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone else had hit this use case and could weigh in on how things work for them.

I like to play games (mostly Final Fantasy XIV) on my primary monitor (1440p 144Hz, FreeSync) while watching a YouTube video and having Discord open on my secondary (1080p 60Hz).

My problem:

When my game is fully using my GPU (~96-100% usage), I will see extremely consistent frame pacing issues via MangoHud, and my game will stutter. It seems to go away when I both pause my video and move Discord to a window with less going on (i.e. just text), no images.

Hardware

GPU: AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X

RAM: 32GB DDR4 @ 3600MHz

Software

I am using SwayWM (Wayland). Every application I have open is using flags to work natively on Wayland, including discord_arch_electron.

Happens with Firefox (with and without hardware acceleration forced on/off), Chrome (same story), and Discord, so far in my testing. Either using them individually, or together, it does not matter.

Additional Info

  • I am watching YouTube videos in 240p. This really shouldn't be taxing on my hardware.

  • The stutter used to be a lot worse. I improved it by running xrandr --output XWAYLAND0 --primary (interestingly requires re-running if I open Discord after my game is running, or it will always stutter... despite Discord running natively through Wayland).

  • Stutters still exist, but games are at least better using MangoHud's vsync=3 (FIFO VSync). Running without FIFO or Relaxed FIFO is unplayably bad (feels like < 20 fps despite reporting 100-140 most of the time).

  • Running Discord via browser makes no difference.

  • I am running my games with gamemoderun, setting my game to the highest niceness (-20) and manually setting Firefox and Discord to Very Low priority via gnome-system-monitor.

  • Trying a TkG kernel with the BORE scheduler did not help.

  • I even tried running # schedtool -F -p 99 $(pgrep ffxiv_dx11) for the hell of it. It made no difference.

It's not the end of the world, but I've been dealing with this issue for ages and haven't been able to fully resolve it. Hoping to get to the bottom of this. Thanks!

How to play Rise of Kingdoms using Lutris?

How to install Rise of Kingdoms using Lutris? I don't know anything about Wine at all, I was just trying to follow a few guides that I found and it didn't work.

https://www.reddit.com/r/wine_gaming/comments/ejoh2x/manually_installing_games_with_lutris/

I tried to follow steps 1 to 8 of the top answer from the topic above, but when I clicked on "Play", it started running, I got the first screen with the cup of wine, then it closed and was showing "Launching" where I clicked on "Play" before, and nothing happens.

Civilization VI bug on Ubuntu : can't save game options

Hello everybody!

I just managed to solve several problems that stopped me from play Civ 6 on Ubuntu, but now that I could finally open it I noticed I couldn't save any game options... I open the game options menu, change something, confirm, and if I close it and open it again (the menu), the changes are gone. What can I do? I saw some people had the same issue on windows because of their antivirus, but on Linux I don't know what's causing it.

Thank you so much in advance for helping me!

HDMI audio issues with A750 on Ubuntu 22.04... help?

System specs:

Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite WiFi

Ryzen 5 5600x

32 GB (2x16GB) Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 3600

1x500GB & 1x1TB NVMe SSDs

Intel Arc A750

Ubuntu 22.04

I built this system out of leftover parts after an upgrade as a HTPC/ couch gaming box, but I keep running into the same issue. About half the time, the HDMI audio doesn't work at all (still shows up in Settings > Sound), and when it does work, it will eventually drop out.

I followed Intel's guide on driver installation, but inevitably, it seems like they crash, resulting in either no audio through the HDMI connection (using a 4k120Hz TV) or a total system lockup.

I've tried multiple HDMI 2.1 cables, lowering the resolution to 1080p120, 1080p60, and multiple fresh installs over the last 2 weeks. I do have a spare SSD that I keep a Windows installation on, but I'd much rather stick with Linux. My main PC already runs Windows.

Any suggestions on what else to try?

Forza Horizon 5 crashing on NVIDIA

Installed Forza Horizon 5 through steam. Tried Proton Experimental and GE Proton 7.43.

Both have the same problem.

The game starts up and I can watch the first cutscene of the game. Then I drive for like 20 seconds. After that the game freezes completely and crashes a few moments later.

Is there a way to fix this? I already looked into ProtonDB but couldnt find any solutions there.

Amd software? Undervolting.

Hey.

I've been experimenting with linux gaming on and off for the last year and have finally decided to run dual boot untill win10 stops being suppored and then migrate completly, if not before.

This is my first time running an AMD GPU on linux. I'm running a 6700xt on linux Mint. I cant find any softwere with settings. I want to run a small undervolt and clock down a little to make the card nice and quiet. In windows this is trivial to do in adrenaline.

I have not found settings for freesync either.

Do any of you know how to do this in linux? I have only found one guide on the arch wiki and it seems both very complicated and risky (warns of HW faliure if you input the wrong values).

Thank you:)

For people interested in sharing Steam libraries between Windows and Linux but wanting the native Linux versions of games without having to redownload files each time you want to boot a game after having booted it up in Windows, this is the best solution I could find

This method uses duplicates of games in different folders, so use it only if you can afford the storage space to have duplicates of full games, before doing this have at least one duplicate just in case Steam decides to get funny and delete your game to re-download it.

Just keep in mind one thing, this has all worked for me so far but I don' t guarantee that it will always work, there is probably an easier way of doing this but I'm tired of dealing with this lmao.

So here's the tutorial:

  1. Create a Steam library for only Linux native games.

  2. Create a Steam library for games that are Windows only and that could be played via Proton.

  3. Download your native Linux games, or copy the Windows version from the Windows folder, if you do this second method you also have to copy the appmanifest_.acf file that is located in the steamapps folder in the SteamLibrary folder and the data for the game in the libraryfolders.vdf file that is located in the Steam/config folder (in this case I don' t have experience copying specific data for each game, you probably would have to change other info on the file so I'd rather copy all of the games in the particular SteamLibrary folder along with it's section in libraryfolders.vdf.

  4. In Windows, open Steam and go to Settings > Downloads > Steam Library Folders and select only the library folder that you're gonna be using in Windows.

  5. In Linux, open Steam and go to Settings > Downloads > Steam Library Folders and first select the folder that has only native Linux games 5a. If you copied your games from a prior Windows installation then cloase Steam and copy the appmanifest_.acf file to the steamapps folder in the SteamLibrary folder for your native Linux games, then open Steam and verify the game files through Steam (this should work, I think and it should also download the Linux files for the game in case that the version you copied was a Windows version)

  6. Test your games and reboot Linux Steam just in case.

  7. Open Linux Steam again and go to Settings > Downloads > Steam Library Folders, check that the library folder for your native Linux games is still acknowledged by Steam and if it does proceed to add the folder for your Windows only games.

  8. Now Steam should only care about the Linux folder for the Linux native games when booting them up from Linux and ignore that they are also installed in the Windows/Proton folder.

Preferably in a btrfs partition, I've read in the past that WinBtrfs can cause issues but I personally haven't experience any, only issues I've had has been with file permissions and ownership in Linux but that can be solved by chown and chmod.

Located in /home/.local/share/Steam in Linux and in Program Files (x86)/Steam in Windows.

Optional: Grab the libraryfolders.vdf file located in Steam/config after making sure your games are running well in each OS and not downloading anything and back them up into a folder that steam can not see, making sure you know which OS each libraryfolders.vdf file belongs to you'd have to rename them and then give them their original name once you copy them into Steam/config or back them up in separate folders, in Linux you could experience downloads for the games but this should only be shaders. This works in case that for some reason Linux Steam won't acknowledge your Steam Library Folders, in this case close Steam and replace the libraryfolders.vdf file in the Steam/config folder with the one you had backed up, you could also probably add them back in the UI but I don' t trust that.

Well I hope this helps anyone who for some reason wanted to do this just like me, since right now I don't have internet in my house outside of limited phone data, this helps to not have to re-download large chunks of a game, if there is something that doesn't work for you feel free to ask and I'll see if I can help.

Lutris/Wine gamepad support

I use a 3rd party Switch controller via USB without issue for all my Linux gaming via Lutris/Steam (e.g. Odyssey, RDR2, Sekiro). I recently purchased, installed and can successfully run the Witcher III via Lutris/Wine. My USB controller is detected and correctly configured in the Wine control panel, but my problem is that it is not detected in-game. When I connect the same controller via Bluetooth it IS detected, however (I cannot stomach the latency, so BT is not a viable option for me). The Witcher III is the only game I have installed in this way.

Any idea what could be causing this issue and what I might do to resolve it?

gnome-control-center-vrr updated

The mutter-vrr and gnome-control-center-vrr AUR packages that provide Variable Refresh Rate to GNOME Wayland support has finally been updated to GNOME 43. For about 2-3 months this feature was on available on Fedora/Nobara repos.

There is a bug with installation. If you encounter "pipe wire module already in use", install with yay -S mutter-vrr gnome-control-center-vrr --nocheck (makepkg -si --nocheck)

(To be honest, use this at your own risk, as the maintainer is proving themselves to not exactly provide the mostly stable experience over time. Having it installed before this and trying to update to GNOME 43 caused a dependency nightmare. But alas, it's working again for the moment.)

Skyrim SE, MO2, SKSE64 and missing music + character dialogue

I just want to preface that I have indeed been searching for a solution to this, but all the "solutions" I could find are several years out of date and don't work.

Anyway...

Skyrim SE vanilla runs fine through both the latest Proton and Proton GE. However, when I'm launching Skyrim with SKSE64 through Mod Organizer 2 I have missing music and missing NPC dialogue. Mods themselves, including mods that require the Script Extender, appear to be working fine, however.

Some technical info:

I'm running Ubuntu LTS 22.04.

Mod Organizer 2 is installed in the same Steam prefix Skyrim SE is using, and I launch it through Steam using either the latest Proton or Proton GE. I run SKSE64 as an executable in Mod Organizer 2. Other executable seems to be working fine this way: FNIS does its job, so does Bodyslide.

Has anyone recently got SKSE64 to work with Skyrim SE? If so, how?

How does the 5800x3d compare to its old variant the 5800x?

Hi all

I'm currently thinking about buying a 5800x3d and sell my 5800x or reusing it in a different build (got a 6600xt for free), That said I cant seem to find any decent benchmarks comparing the 5800x3d to the 5800x on linux. I know that the extra cache improves performance on windows up to 30% (maybe higher) on simulation type games. That said I cant say if those findings are transferable to linux. Also, would proton / wine benefit from the extra cache?

Phasmophobia bugs very hard on Steam

Hello,

For the first time in a long time, I decided to play a game (on Monjaro Linux with my friends). I never use my Linux to play, but the components of my machine allow me to do so.

I installed steam, configured steam to use proton and installed Phasmophobia. But when the game starts, I must be at 5 FPS...

Do you have any idea why? I think Manjaro is not using my GPU but my IGP. I don't know how to tell it to use the GPU instead.

Thanks!

Is an AMD Radeon RX 6600 8GB "too heavy" for playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-Mods(!) under WINE?

Hi, I wasn't sure whether ask in this or some pure hardware subreddit, but I think that you find people with experience or any solutions way rather here.

One year ago I bought a Desktop PC with following HW specifications:

Mainboard: ASUS A520M-K (I do not overclock anything)

RAM: 3200 MHz 2x8GB (16 GB RAM) 

CPU/Graphics: AMD Ryzen 5 5600G (with integrated radeon graphics although the Debian 11/Stable installer decided to use amdgpu instead of radeon, shared memory up to 8GB)

Hard Disk: / Storage: SanDisk Ultra 128GB SSD

Power Supply: 450W (more than enough - yet) 

Display: Good quality FHD Monitor (I am absolutely okay with the maximum resolution of 1920x1080, don't need higher res.)

Relevant OS & WINE Details:

Debian 11 (Stable), but apparently end of this year or next one Debian 12 will become stable which afaik uses stable branch of Wine 7.0 in their (yet "testing") repository.

KDE (from Debian Stable Repository)

Wine 5.0.3 (Debian 5.0.3-3), but can use Wine-Stable and Wine-Staging / Wine 7.0.x from WineHQ

Winetricks (from Debian Stable Repo.)

Interface for Wine: Depending on case , sometimes classic start from CLI, sometimes over q4wine.
Depends on the Game (Mod), some run well with DirectX 10.1, others run never over DirectX 9 but with (almost) maximum video/effect settings, but (with almost) no crashes or problems.

No GalliumNine. Reason: It apparently does not work with AMD "APUs"/IGFX (can't detect the iGPU's available memory / "virtual VRAM").

DXVK does not work (my iGPU's API stats are apparently already outdated since few weeks or months) so I am using
$winetricks --renderer=opengl && winetricks --videomemorysize=8192MB
and this runs well.

The games (mods) that I am exclusively interested in, are S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Chernobyl (1.5r6) and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of the Zone. I have a low budget but enough to afford some AMD/ATI GFX Card and I am thinking about buying the "AMD Radeon RX 6600 8GB" (~300 +/- 30 on Amazon Germany):

Tech. Specs of it:

https://www.amd.com/en/products/graphics/amd-radeon-rx-6600

I hope that I will be able to enjoy the mentioned mods maybe through DirectX 10.1/11 with maximum video settings. In the end, the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-games run even on my old 2014 Lenovo Notebook (B5400 with Intel HD 4000 as iGPU and 8 GB total RAM) smoothly although without dynamic lighting. The mods run not as smooth (but with lowest settings to avoid lags).

Plus I am someone who only buys some hardware which shouldn't have to be replaced before 5-7 years at least (or it breaks), so I hope that the mentioned dedicated GFX-card will be able to serve the next 7-10 years (I very doubt that I will need some more powerful GPU in this time, very maybe even after that as I adore only older games (released before 2010, 2016...) and mods of them which are already > 5 years old).

What do you think, is the RX 6600 "too heavy" and thus unneccessarily too expensive for my goals? I mean, if you'd say that some older/less powerful and cheaper would be a better solution due to by budget (without affecting my mentioned goals for the present time) then I of course would look and eventually decide myself for some cheaper card.

Thanks for your patience if you've read everything and thank you in advance everyone who can give me some hint, advice or share his/her experiences with that card, the games under wine and with other ded.GPUs!

How well does RX 6700 run on Linux + eGPU?

Hello, I'm considering to either get rx 6600 or rx 6700 (non xt) for an eGpu setup, there's not much information on RX 6700 (I keep seeing the xt version instead of non xt) so I'm wondering whether driver support for 6700 is decent on Linux compared to 6600? In particular, does the 6700 perform better than 6600 on Linux?

In my case, I will be using 1080p 144hz on gnome Wayland + i7-1250u. I'm curious if anyone has a similar setup and their experiences, thanks!

Exe. file flickering on Mac

Hey guys. I'm not tech savvy by any sense and would appreciate the help.

I just downloaded the old game Alchemy Deluxe from PopCap games and I got it to work but the screen keeps flickering. Wondering if someone could help me get it to work properly.

Thanks.

Reshade/Gshade causing MASSIVE Fps drops and Stuttering in Gothic 3, even WITHOUT Shaders. Game works completely smoothly without it.

Hello folks, I've recently gotten around to finishing both Gothic 1 & 2 and decided to try my hands on the 3rd game.

After following this 2018 remaster guide I decided to play a couple minutes of the game, and everything works perfectly smooth, 4k 60 fps and no stuttering! To reiterate, my installation is exactly the same as the one in the video.

The issue however appeared when I decided to try out a couple shaders. As soon as Gshade is injected into the game (DirectX 9), even with shaders completely disabled, the game becomes a stuttery mess, with freezes of up to 10 seconds (!!), rendering it completely unplayable! Yes, this happens even on the Main Menu for some odd reason... and actually using shaders makes no noticeable difference in framerate. Neither the previous games nor the Risen trilogy (I believe Risen 1 uses the same engine? not sure) had any issues using Gshade, which makes this especially baffling.

Things I also tried to do, with the same results:

-Using the latest Reshade (5.6.0)

-Using the previous-gen Reshade (4.9.1)

-Switching from the latest GE-Proton to Proton Experimental

-Trying standard Proton (7.0-5)

I don't really understand what could be causing such an issue. Perhaps something to do with d3d9.dll? Gothic 3 is already a tough game to run properly stutter-free on Windows, but it actually does work perfectly if I don't intend on using Reshade/Gshade. If someone has any clue as to what I could attempt in order to fix this, I'd be really thankful!

so enabling RADV_PERFTEST=gpl works the same way DXVK_ASYNC=1 does?

After telling this Proton-GE 7-45 get rid of DXVK ASync, I was wondering, is it true that enabling that option, which activates the Vulkan Graphics Pipeline Library, does the same thing DXVK ASync does? As DXVK ASync is something that has definitely worked a lot to me in games like Overwatch, it would be a pity that there were no other things like that

Rust can now be played on some EAC-enabled servers

Usually it's not possible play Rust on linux/steamdeck because of EasyAntiCheat (EAC). However, I recently found some servers that allowed to me connect despite EAC being enabled.

Here are the servers:

  • 64.40.9.26:28015 RustForNoobs.com | Solo Duo Trio | Monthly EU
  • 199.231.233.240:28015 Rusticated.com - Bedwars | Creative | Minigames | Arena
  • 64.40.9.165:28020 [EU] BekerMelk's Gun Aim Training Server
  • 64.40.9.165:28015 [EU] BekerMelk's Bow Aim Training Server

  • 64.40.8.181:28015 [US] BekerMelk's Bow Aim Training Server

I've contacted the admin of RustForNoobs/BekerMelk and he did not know about the linux support. He claims that is a sideeffect due to an optimized anticheat server configuration.

I have some questions about Linux support for Beitong gaming controllers:

Greetings,

I recently purchased some Beitong gaming controllers, they look high quality, and I really like the features that the Beitong controllers have.

Anyways, since Beitong controllers are PC controllers, do they have good Linux driver support?

And Beitong controllers require a proprietary app that has tracking software in it, in order to fully configure the Beitong controllers, but, does the Linux ecosystem have some good alternative tools, like gui tools to configure the Beitong controllers, to get the full benefits out of them?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Is Bottles have trouble for everyone else since the last update?

I've tried this out on a couple of distros and always with the same result, Bottles is failing to download dependencies, often corrupting them. Strangely on Pop if I start Bottles in the terminal then dependencies are downloaded just fine.

Is this just some quirk of my hardware or are other people seeing it?

Locked to 60hz with multi-monitor setup

I recently switched to primarily doing gaming on Linux, however any game I run is capped at 60hz despite turning vsync off wherever I could and setting the rate to 144. I have two monitors, one is 1920x1080@144hz while the other is 1600x900@60hz. It seems anything I run is capped at the lowest common refresh rate therefore I have to unplug my second monitor in order to get the full 144hz.

I'm using a Radeon 6900XT, Arch linux 6.1.6, KDE Plasma 5.26.5, and xorg-server 21.1.6-1 I'm not sure what logs would be relevant in this situation so feel free to ask.

GE-Proton7-45 Released

https://www.patreon.com/posts/77423139 https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/proton-ge-custom/releases/tag/GE-Proton7-45

Removed deprecated broken dxvk-async patch:

Upstream DXVK has implemented the GraphicsPipelineLibrary (GPL) back in August, which takes over dxvk-async's job:

https://www.khronos.org/blog/reducing-draw-time-hitching-with-vk-ext-graphics-pipeline-library doitsujin/dxvk#2798

Driver support for Nvidia was added in version 515.49.10: https://developer.nvidia.com/vulkan-driver

Driver support for AMD/RADV was added in August 2022 and is an ongoing WIP: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/-/merge_requests/17542

Per the above, it can be exposed/enabled for testing on AMD/RADV via: RADV_PERFTEST=gpl

dxvk-async now causes problems with the dxvk-cache, which is not something new users may know how to clear: Sporif/dxvk-async#55

In light of the above, in addition to the current rebase still not working properly, I am removing the dxvk-async patch from Proton-GE.

RIP dxvk-async 2018-2023

I have some questions about troubleshooting PC parts(specifically an Intel Arc a770 desktop graphics card) for a Linux gaming rig setup:

Greetings,

Quick overview of my setup:

motherboard: msi am4 mini itx

cpu: 5800x3d

gpu: intel arc a770 le

os: linux(nixos distro, but this issue has more to do with Linux itself)

Kernel: Linux 6.1.3

boot.kernelPackages = pkgs.linuxPackages_latest;

I managed to boot into linux fine, but the a770 does not render plasma or gnome desktops?

The PC keeps getting either booted directly into a console(plasma), or 1st it gets booted into a console and then it boots to a blank screen with a cursor at the top left?

I'm using the latest Linux kernel and system packages, so I have no idea why the a770 does not want to render?

Today I'm going to update the motherboards BIOS firmware software(I think it's behind by 3 years), and switch from xserver/xorg to wayland, to see if these changes fix the a770's rendering issue, if that does not work, then I have no idea what to do next?

Is there Linux terminal commands, or a gui tool that I can use to troubleshoot the a770 gpu, so I can see if it's even recognized by the PC, and working correctly?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Where are the Crysis 2 saved game files

and it shows that the saved game files are in:

/home/USER/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/2096600/pfx

However, there is nothing in there but dosdrives and in that directory, the c:\ drive doesnt point to a legitimate location:

c: -> ../drive_c
z: -> /

../drive_c doesnt exist.

Any ideas where these saved files are at?

CyberpowerPC/Linux

TLDR: Just want to share that prebuilt CyberpowerPCs work great for Linux gaming OOTB, and a little tip on how to update this BIOS in case they need to upgrade hardware in the future. Just random bits of my experience nothing serious or noteworthy, just in case it could help someone with the same setup.

I bought this prebuilt gaming PC in 2017. It was on a great sale at Best Buy at the time. It came with Windows but has not once booted into Windows, I got rid of it immediately in place of Linux. Over these years I've been able to rock Linux OOTB on this thing, especially since switching to Arch this past and using latest drivers/linux-firmware-git for my RX6650xt.

A few times however I had issues that were hard to pin down, especially during the GPU upgrade. It turns out it was because this thing comes with a custom Cyberpower BIOS on it. I recently discovered this from a post with an exact setup as me and updated using this hard to find link on the Asrock website, this is the only page where Asrock has released a bios update for this specific board for Cyberpower, and it was just this past December. But the thing is, you need a certain previous bios version to be able to upgrade at all, I was stuck on P1.30 version for so long and any upgrades required P2.00. Long story short I first had to dig and find this, and now the aforementioned new Asrock BIOS update works. This bios also primes me for a CPU upgrade I believe. The usual page for the bios updates shown here never worked for me, simply failed to flash. My Linux experience became even more OOTB after I did this update, it is nice to have access to Resizable BAR/Above 4g MMIO options. Of course do UEFI/Bios updates at your own risk.

I guess I'd just like to throw all this out there, to be the only result for this Cyberpower PC using Linux, to confirm to anyone who could end up here that it works great, and where to find the proper BIOS update links. It works with any and every distro you throw at it, I've tried tons. Ubuntu, Fedora, Arch, Solus and even Void provided OOTB experiences for me.

Motherboard: ASROCK B450M Pro4-CB

Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 2600

RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3600Mhz (2 x 8GB)

GPU: MSI RX580 4GB (Upgraded to XFX RX6650xt)

Storage1: 256GB SSD (removed, replaced with M.2 NVME)

Storage2: 1TB WD HDD (removed)

etcetcetc experiences

It comes with a 650W power supply, info I had to email Cyberpower myself about because the label isn't visible on the inside and they don't list the specs anywhere. However, it isn't consistent, my brother purchased this same PC on the same day back in 2017, and upgraded to a 6700xt which takes 2 PCIe plugs. My power supply came with an extra cable required to use it, while his didn't. We swapped power supplies so he could use his card properly. So there isn't complete consistency or reliability on their end, but I can still confirm the systems run great for penguins. Also, on this specific build, using an NVME drive prevents the SATA ports from working.

This brother I mention all the time is a Windows user. Came with 10 he upgraded to 11. Believe it or not he has all sort of issues, ironic considering he's using the "OOTB OS". AMD Radeon software stops opening when there's a Windows update, his hardware gets hot, the PC freezes/shuts down often. He had to go find chipset driver when updating to RX6700xt. Windows is also super slow to initialize and perform on his SATA SSD, but this could be from the 10>11 update.

When I install Fedora on this PC, it gives me 2 Fedora UEFI boot options. No, it's not the kernel one or the grub one that's expected, it's an extra UEFI boot entry for Fedora altogether. I could get rid of it with efibootmgr but it would always find its way back. Only Fedora did this. And for some reason Fedora took forever to boot, like 3 times longer than other distros. I might give it another shot in the future since I've updated this BIOS now. I've used and praised Solus Linux in the past, a distro with a questionable reputation that has always stumped me. I'm wondering now if it's just that Solus worked so well with this particular setup that I was having such a good time with it? I'm clung to Arch however since I need the latest drivers/firmware for my RX6650xt, it works on an up to date Solus, but I simply feel in better hands with Arch.

Does it work inside games themselves? No, doesn't see any movement at all

Looking for advice on running games on linux vs windows (Elden ring &amp; Insurgency Sandstorm

I hope the title is not to vague. I have switched to Linux Mint about 3 weeks ago and so far Im loving it. I got Dayz and Witcher 3 to run fantastic and way better then they did for me on windows. Im having an issue however with two games right now when it comes to performance. Those games are Elden Ring and Insurgency Sandstorm. Now I dont have the best pc I definitely need to upgrade but I was on windows and after doing a little tinkering was Abel to play both games with a smooth 30 or more fps. I got elden ring to a decent state I think but I just cant figure out sandstorm. Im just looking for any advice on things I could tinker with.

What is the best distribution for gaming?

I recently built a PC for gaming. Which distribution provides the best gaming performance? And what modifications are best done for maximum performance? I am currently running Fedora 37 with GNOME on this PC. But perhaps there is something better? I do not have very powerful hardware, I use an AMD APU without a powerful discrete graphics card, so performance is important to me.

Apex Legends running with double the FPS on random startups (Random as in 4 in 100)

Specs: Ryzen 5800H + Radeon 6600M + 16GB RAM
Configuration : Arch Linux, linux-tkg using gamemoderun DXVK_ASYNC with proton GE and the whole shebang. You get it.
In Game Settings : All settings Low with TSAA and 4x Tex Filtering 8GB VRAM

So the only consistent to benchmark FPS in the game is when you are dropping from the dropship (whole map is rendered and puts decent load on GPU) From my testing on Windows the FPS ranges from 90 - 100 mostly and the mouse movement feels extremely smooth. But on Linux the FPS the fps hovers arounds 50 fps and even when the fps eventually reaches the 130 - 140 (Once on the ground) the mouse movement and video still feels ever so stuttery (high max frametimes)

But then I have experienced a anomaly about four times when the game FPS was significantly higher. FPS during drop time ranges from 80 - 90 . And the game feels just as smooth as Windows. All times when the anomaly occurred I had butter smooth game play for multiple matches. But as soon as I restart the game it goes back to its old state with lower FPS.

The only thing I noticed is that when the anomaly happened I was playing Team Fortress 2 right before closing it and opening Apex. But have never been able to consistently reproduce it.

Other Notes: Whenever the anomaly happens CPU usage is SIGNIFICANTLY lower. (25 - 30% instead of the usual 50 - 60%) and GPU TDP is doubled (from 35ish to 70W) indicating some sort of CPU bottleneck in the default state. I have tried using the latest mesa via mesa-tkg and tried various RADV_PERFTEST and RADV_DEBUG flags but nothing can reproduce the anomaly

A few AMD (and RX 7000 related) questions

Hi. I'm a laptop gamer since like ~2007 so I'm not really interested in desktops. RX 7000 mobile series is supposed to roll out in February, I'm thinking of giving AMD another chance but I'm unsure about a few things. If someone could answer them, it would really help me.

  • 1) I've seen some threads about bad drivers (7000 specific), I understand that it takes some time for the drivers to appear, especially in non-rolling distros. I use Arch (btw), is this something I should be worried about? If so, how long does it usually take for the drivers to mature when it comes to new GPUs?
  • 2) Anyone tried the AV1 encoder in OBS? It's supposed to be really good. RX 6000 only had VAAPI which was limited to 30 fps and the quality was inferior compared to Nvidia's NVENC
  • 3) Does ray tracing work with Mesa drivers? I don't really care about it but it would be great if it worked one day
  • 4) If a demanding game only supports DLSS, can I somehow force FSR via Proton to achieve a similar effect?
  • 5) If I want to use the dedicated GPU on a laptop, I just put DRI_PRIME=1 %command% in launch parameters for every single game, right? No need to force the dedicated card to be always on or something like that, correct?
  • 6) If there's an AMD laptop Linux gamer, can you briefly describe the overal experience?

Thanks. By the way I really only use Linux so if something won't work properly, it simply won't work. Using Windows in any way is not an option for me. I'm currently using an RTX 3060 and it works really well.

Civilization VI is crashing after first successful run.

Civilization VI runs perfectly fine at first launch and when I close it it wouldn't launch again until I delete the .../compatdata/287090 directory (Steam App ID of the game). It has been happening since 4 something months. Debian sid (XFCE w/ X11) here (I apt dist-upgrade around 2 times a month). As you understand many packages have been updated within that time yet this issue persists. GPU is 5700 XT.

Proton Experimental, 6.3, 7.0.5, 7.0.6, Proton GE whatever-version; don't solve this.
Whether it's DXVK or VK3D3 it doesn't make a difference. Driver is Mesa 22.3 from Debian's official sid repository. (Also tried many Mesa 23.0 dev builds since last two months, nothing solves this, I don't think it's a Mesa problem, but I don't know for sure)

Task Manager appears to be showing this weird behavior with this t2gp.exe service, it seems to be stuck in infinite loop of crash-and-restart events. Following is a screenshot of that.

https://ibb.co/GHpzYD5

This is the full command-line in XFCE's Task Manager in the above pic that keeps crashing and restarting infinitely (Steam keeps showing "Stop" status on the button as if the game is running fine):
C:\users\steamuser\AppData\Local\T2GP Launcher\app-1.7.1.4891\t2gp.exe --type=utility --utility-sub-type=storage.mojom.StorageService --lang=en-US --service-sandbox-type=utility --user-agent-product=Chrome/99.2.12+045f0a55639341ecc --lang=en-US --user-data-dir=C:\users\steamuser\AppData\Local\CEF\User Data --log-file=C:\users\steamuser\AppData\Local\T2GP Launcher\app-1.7.1.4891\debug.log --mojo-platform-channel-handle=616 --field-trial-handle=644,i,9389553664038462638,13056714446316385555,131072 --disable-features=CalculateNativeWinOcclusion,WinUseBrowserSpellChecker /prefetch:8

When I click on Stop button in Steam to close the game, that service stops as well and and everything goes back to normal (Button on Steam shows "Play"). I have to delete the .../compatdata/287090 directory again (only the 287090 one) to launch the game successfully (only for one time).

As you can see in the command line, the service is logging to debug.log. This is what debug.log (found in ../compatdata/289070/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/AppData/Local/T2GP Launcher/app-1.7.1.4891/ directory) is shows of the recent crash event.

Confusing hellspawn that is running Painkiller series on linux

I've ran this game before on linux, via Wine/Lutris flawlessly. Not sure why, but ever since I swapped to newer pc, on Wine/Lutris, there's no audio, and on Steam, it has audio, but it's borderline unusable due to scuffed resolution. Should I try n run the game with pulseaudio?
OS: Arch w/ kernel 6.1.6
Audio: Pipewire

Heroes of Newerth (shut down MOBA) revived by the community

Context:

Heroes of Newerth (HoN) was a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game originally developed by S2 Games for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The game idea was derived from the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne custom map Defense of the Ancients and was S2 Games' first MOBA title. The game was released on May 12, 2010, and re-released as a free-to-play game on July 29, 2011. On May 5, 2015, Heroes of Newerth development duties passed to Frostburn Studios, with the development team moving over to the new company. The service ceased operations on June 20, 2022.

News:

A community project named Project Kongor revived Heroes of Newerth 2 months after its shut down with community servers and custom launcher in 5th August 2022.

[By 5th January 2023] Project KONGOR had 4 700 players online and a grand total of 1 000 000 games played since August 2022.

Guide:

1) Register in Project Kongor website.

2) Download and extract clean HoN for Linux.

3) Download and extract launcher-linux-beta4 into previously extracted HoNClean folder.

4) Launch the game with following command within HoNClean folder;

LC_ALL=C ./launcher

5) Login the game with Project Kongor account.

Troubleshooting:

If the game crashes at launch, remove ~/.Heroes of Newerth/settings/startup.cfg file, create a new startup.cfg in the same directory, add following line in it;

SetSave "gl_modesetting" "" "0"

How do I ACKTHUALLY install Dolphin Emulator on Ubuntu?

This site simply says to just paste a series of codes. I did exactly that, word for word. I even took the step to enable "Universe Repository" like it said to, but every time it says dolphin-emu has no instillation candidate.

Their own download site which refers to "Download for Windows, Mac and Linux" doesn't even have any actual Linux downloads (Other than a version for Ubuntu that's a decade old and won't execute.)

Simply running sudo apt install dolphin-emu reports that the package is missing. Does it no longer exist or became obsolete? All the steps in this video seem to no longer work.

So how do I ACKTHUALLY install it? All the instructions I've followed report that it is unavailable. Can someone be a sweetie and make a .appimage of it? It seems like this bloke posted one, but the link seems to have expired.

linux-firmware-git solved EVERYTHING (6650xt)

I had problems getting my brand new RX6650xt up to speed on Linux. After searching a bit I've come to realize it's probably something to do with how unpopular this card is in the first place, I could only find a handful of users reporting about it at all in regards to Linux. But I found a pattern for every single one of these: their solution was installing linux-firmware-git. On Arch it was as simple as yay -S linux-firmware-git and I got it from AUR. Instantly, finally, I finally feel the effects of getting a new GPU. Could someone help me understand how exactly this solved my issue?

Since this is a git package, is it safe to assume the stable version will get these changes soon?

How can I have different levels for MangoHud similar to the Steam Deck?

I've seen videos of the Steam Deck updating MangoHud verbosity levels on the fly. Would I be correct to assume that behind the scenes, moving the slider just copies a pre-configured config file to the default MangoHud.conf? Is the Steam Deck using an existing script for that? If not, does that mean I would have to write a custom script to emulate that behavior?

7900xtx in Linux update: poor performance in Linux?

I recently made a post about trying to use Ubuntu with a 7900xtx, and how I did a oopsie forgetting that latest hardware requires the latest Mesa and kernel. Now I got Linux working with my GPU, both Ubuntu and Fedora. I'll explain what I had to do to use my GPU in those, as well as compare performance across those distors against Windows(spoilers: it's not looking good for linux)

Ubuntu 22.10: Updated Kernel to 6.16, Mesa to 23, LLVM 15

  • Won't show grub->could not edit nomodeset ,so I had to use my 7700x's RDNA2 iGPU (plugged the DP cable into my motherboard)
  • Use Ubuntu mainline Linux kernel 6.16(Download .deb and install with dpkg)
  • Use oigaf PPA to update Mesa and LLVM(kisak PPA's Mesa 22.3 is unusable. Immediately crashes)
  • ISSUE: Frequently crashes. Screen freeze->goes black->Comes back but system unresponsive.

Fedora 37: Updated Kernel to 6.16, Mesa to 22.3, LLVM 15

  • DOES NOT WORK OUT OF THE BOX, contrary to many comments. Has to be updated.
  • This one at least shows grub menus. I used recovery mode(basic graphics) to boot into OS and update
  • No need for 3rd party repos. Just sudo dnf update and sudo dnf upgrade
  • ISSUE: gdm just can't seem to handle two displays. Have to unplug one display to Log in(only initially). After first session login, dual displays work fine.

Performance- Settings: 4K native, Fullscreen, All settings max(except for PUBG). Main monitor: 4K 144, Secondary monitor: 4K 60.

OS Team Fortress 2 Cities:Skylines (610K population, 25-tile full) PUBG Battlegrounds
Windows 270~300 fps 40~70 fps 130~ fps
Ubuntu 20~30 fps 5~10 fps N/A
Fedora 15~27 fps 5~10 fps N/A

Conclusion: Performance is around a tenth of what's normal. Can't game on linux until performance normalizes. Feelsbadman

PS: coming from NVIDIA+X11, Wayland feels fkin awesome. Constant smooth 144Hz when dragging windows around/element animations. Too bad it constantly crashes(on Ubuntu and just can't play games)

Bejeweled Twist music - echo, reverb?

Bejeweled Twist music - echo, reverb?

Hi, I have a mysterious issue and I wonder if someone has helpful advice or even experience.

Bejeweled Twist under wine isn't quite playing its music properly. (It's MO3 music, the compressed tracker MOD tracker format by Ian Luck.)

I've copied the same application from linux to Windows-10-in-a-VM, so the libraries of the game--notably including bass.dll, the audio & music library--are the same.

Reverb and echo effects are missing when wine runs the game.

Gameplay recording here: http://bejeweledtwister.ml1.net.user.fm/audio_issue/

First I play in Windows 10 in VirtualBox, to hear how it should be.

  1. At 0:06, a gameplay song starts. One of the lead instruments has nice echo (delay).
  2. At 0:46, the Challenge Menu song starts. Almost every single instrument in this track has nice echo/delay and reverb, which makes it very atmospheric and spacey, as it obviously should be.
  3. At 1:20, the Survivor Challenge song starts. The lead and background instruments of this song need their delay and reverb to fill the empty spaces and emphasize their distance and loneliness.

At 2:08, I pull up the same game in Wine on debian bullseye (kde/plasma).

I do the same things:

  1. at 2:19, a gameplay song,
  2. at 2:54, the Challenge menu, and
  3. at 3:12, the Survivor challenge.

Notice especially how the Challenge menu and Survivor music (skaven's songs) are lacking a lot without the delay/echo, and even in the regular gameplay section, one of the instruments is missing it too. It sounds dry, spaced out, and like something is missing. ...which is totally right, heh.

From a technical viewpoint, I can't guess how this can be! Is bass.dll asking for something from Windows that wine doesn't provide, in order to make this delay effect? But it's smart enough to proceed without it, in the wine case? There's no corruption and no crashing, simply missing instrument effects. Is Bejeweled not using bass.dll, but something else that Windows provides, to do the same? I feel like this is very unlikely since from what I understand about tracker music, this should totally be self-contained in the tracker playback code (and mo3 is a format which goes hand in hand with BASS)... I know from software like OpenMPT that reverb & echo can be "extra" features that may well be missing from playback system to playback system. But since Bejeweled Twist ships bass.dll, I'm really surprised at how this can actually turn out so specifically different, in this case!

I have a feeling debugging and/or reverse engineering will be the only thing that can actually answer the question. Can anyone brainstorm an idea with me? I worry that this is far too specific of a problem for someone else to have experience with this already, haha.

Baldur's Gate 3 - Great FPS in single player, super low in multi???

Hello,

I'm sorta new to linux, using Mint 21.1 and while I've really not had many issues with gaming I tried playing Baldur's Gate 3 last night with my buddies and when we got in game I was maxing out around 25 fps. Super unplayable. I messed with all my settings and no matter what I did it was incredibly stuttery. The weird thing is the game runs just fine if I'm in solo with 4 characters so I don't really get what's tanking it so hard. I'm averaging between 150 and 200 fps on ultra in solo so to be getting 25 is crazy low. I had to make them pause so I could boot back into windows just to play for the night but I'd love to get this solved so I can stick to my linux journey as much as possible.

Brief system specs are 10700k, 3080ti, 32gb ddr4, nvme, the works. Should have no trouble running anything. I'm launching the game using proton experimental and I've tried both Vulkan and DX11, no noticeable difference between the two.

Any help here or even pointing me in the right direction would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Nobara vs OpenSuse Tumbleweed for freshly released Hardware?

I have not seen any discussion comparing these two. I think at the end of the day, I will probably try both and see what I like. I am leaning towards Nobara currently.

Right now I am running kubuntu 22.04 LTS, I have a 7900 XTX Graphics card and a Ryzen 9 7950X. I was able to get these working (using the amdgpu-install script from AMD), but I am missing some features (and some games don't even work) without the Linux 6 kernel. When I updated the Kernel manually I ran into other issues, so I am thinking of just trying a distro that keep more up to date releases instead of debugging the current issues updating the kernel.

My thoughts on these:

OpenSuse Tumbleweed:

  • Rolling releases, so I can get features the fastest, but I am a bit afraid of instability with such frequent releases.
  • No KDE distro, I think. I know I can install this myself but I like it when it comes with the distro, since it probably means they tested it.

Nobara:

  • Geared towards gaming!
  • Frequent releases, it looks like about every month. This seems like a good balance between getting new features and stability.
    • Question: Does this mean I can easily update to each release when they come out?
  • KDE variant included.

I would love to hear if others have any thoughts!

Just updated my Stadia controller with the Google Bluetooth update. Yeah, it's now a BT controller.

Google released an update today for converting your Stadia controller into a Bluetooth controller. I say "convert," because once you go BT, you can't go back to WiFi for playing on Stadia. Not that it matters, of course. I did it and it works fine, just like a normal Bluetooth controller. It's detected as generic gamepad in Steam. Tested and working in Ubuntu and Windows 11.

They're offering the BT conversion, plus updates, for a year.

Here's the link:

Wanting to switch but one game is holding me back

Hey!

I've been wanting to switch from Windows to pop_os for a couple of months now (been binging youtube videos and I want to try linux out)

I can easily sacrifice adobe, and from online research it seems as if all the game engines I use for my level design work in Linux (unity, unreal, gms2). There's just one problem

Most of the games I play are stated to work with proton or are native to linux. However I play overwatch 2 with my girlfriend, it's the one game we play together. Overwatch is the only game I don't play on steam, and I'm getting mixed feelings on if it works on linux.

I know this post might seem silly, but I really want to make the plunge into linux but I just want to confirm that I'll still be able to play one game with my girlfriend.

Steam Link Static Audio Issue

When using the Steam Link app to stream from my desktop PC I eventually start to have issues with audio static that gets progressively worse. The issue seems to start after a brief glitch where the audio cuts out but returns. When the audio returns it sounds fine at first but within ~5-10 minutes static is noticeable and gets worse and worse until I close the game, stop remote play, and start remote play again. This problem happens regardless of what game is being played, only with the Steam Link app, and only if I am streaming from Linux (no issues streaming from Windows on the same PC). The Steam Link app is running on a Raspberry Pi 4 4GB and my desktop PC is running Manjaro. Has anyone else experienced this problem, or have suggestions on how to fix/troubleshoot the problem?

Mangohud says framerate is 60fps, but looks like only 30 is being displayed

im running a fresh install of Nobara Official on wayland, running with an rx 6700 xt and i9 9900k

basically some games,, on steam like Sonic Frontiers or Nier Automata report 60 fps framerate but it looks like 30 somehow. i compared it to playing the same games on my window install because i thought i was going crazy, but the difference is clear as day, like some games on linux wont let me see all the frames it says im getting.

i have not had problems in witcher 3, hades or cs go, as those games can reach 144 fps its smooth as butter when displaying the frames, so im guessing its only some games? is there anything i can do to get the other games to ACTUALLY display all the frames or is this just a linux quirk?

Upgraded GPU, performance no better

I've been having performance issues in my games for a month now. I couldn't narrow it down, it got to the point where everyone was telling my GPU was bad or overheating. It's sent me on such a rabbit hole that I literally bought a new GPU, RX580 to a RX6700xt. It worked out the box thanks to new kernel, but to say the least I'm disappointed in the results, I have yet to feel the "wow performance so much better" effect that comes with new hardware, despite getting high frames in some games. Something is undoubtably up with my system, I cannot figure it out. My afformentioned brother and I use the exact same hardware to play GTAV but he is using Windows. He can run the game so smoothly compared to me it's like I didn't even upgrade. It runs sort of decently for a few minutes then it becomes a slow stutters mess. It should be able to play this fine on my hardware. Please, please help me find out the issue, I cannot afford to give up my Linux gaming journey, I need to figure this out.

Idk where else to even start anymore. I'll just put a bunch of notes.

  • Asrock b450M Pro / RX6700xt / 16GB DDR4 / Ryzen 5 2600 / 1TB NVME
  • I use Arch with GNOME Wayland. I have a Freesync monitor but no support for VRR yet. This isn't the issue however- using xorg with VariableRefresh doesn't help my performance.
  • I use the zen kernel. I use Feral game mode for all of my games on Steam.
  • I use Feral Gamemode. I do not have a system-wide CPU scheduler such as cpupower or corectrl because of this. My drivers come from either the latest Mesa or kernel's amdgpu. I've tried setting cpupower to high performance and it did nothing.
  • I have tried one other distro, Solus Budgie(xorg), but it has the same performance issue. This led me to believe it's a Mesa bug but I've come to doubt it, as I cannot find any info on it besides a "mesa leak" that was only discussed on this sub briefly a few weeks ago. If I install Windows, the games all run flawlessly.
  • The GPU is plugged into PCI 3.0, but this shouldn't be what is causing the performance issue. Again, brother on same hardware, works great for him.
  • It isn't CPU bottleneck. I should be able to play every game I'm trying at much much higher performance. MY GPU is over twice as powerful as before but it feels like I literally haven't upgraded a thing. My CPU never reaches 100 even when playing the most intensive games. Even old games such as Source games where I can get 100 frames, it simply does not look at smooth as it should, those frames should give me fantastic performance, but it looks more like 30fps.
  • I have checked bios settings, tried resetting them, tried all sorts of variables. Nothing. I can start a game with false hope seeing that it's running great, then shortly after it dips to like 50fps. Just me apparently. I'm going crazy here I swear.
  • I have mitigations=off as kernel parameter. Disabling it doesn't help the performance.
  • It isn't dust or heat. The inside of my PC is so clean it smells like isopropyl alcohol and a tropical paradise. Windows plays the same games great, it is a software thing. I have only tried gaming on rolling distros using latest mesa/amdgpu. It must be something I'm forgetting to enable, something like that. I will find it, I must, performance shouldn't be this bad and troubleshooting involves narrowing it down until the issue is found. I'm so narrow into the rabbit hole I've gone bald from pulling my hair out, I've tried every performance tweak and fix you could imagine.
  • I once believed I thought I solved the issue by setting my 144hz monitor to 120, but that was also false hope.

Where else can I look to investigate why I cannot get Linux games to perform as well as they should or run smooth on my system? GPU upgrade didn't work. I am running out of things to try. What could be the cause of such bad performance for over a month now, followed by me not noticing a performance increase from a GPU upgrade? Isn't that supposed to be like the main upgrade the user can notice from the increase in frame rate? I haven't actually been able to sit and play a game on my Linux system with good performance for over a month now, I am genuinely desperate.

RX 6600 XT green screen and then reboot

I've been having this issue with my 6600 XT ever since I got it where the screen with flash green and and then reboot my PC. I don't know if this is specific to linux, but I was able to recreate it on both Arch and Fedora. I have yet to fully test on windows.

I've googled and googled and googled, searching through various forums and tried numerous things trying to get this resolved, but nothing has worked.

Specs:

  • Motherboard: ASRock ab350 Pro4
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
  • GPU: XFX RX 6600 XT
  • RAM: 64 GBs at 2666 MHz
  • Kernel: 6.1.6-zen1-1
  • OS: Arch Linux

Things I've tried:

  • Testing on a fresh install of Fedora, resulting in the same exact issue
  • Looking at this reddit post with the same issue for the 5700 XT, someone in the comments suggested to set an environment variable if I was getting a certain log from amdgpu, I didn't get the log.
  • Reseating the GPU, as well as switching it to the other x16 pcie lane
  • setting this kernel parameter: radeon.dpm=0
  • Testing on both Wayland and X11
  • Switching monitors, and also switching between HDMI and DisplayPort
  • Testing with the previous graphics card I was using, an RX 570, and had no issues.

There are probably some things I've missed that I've tried, but those are the major ones that I can think of. I'm not sure if this is a problem with my GPU, a Linux specific issue, an issue with my motherboard, an issue with my PSU (which I just bought recently) or any other assortment of issues. If anyone could help with any potential solutions or point me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it.

Frametime issues with DXVK and VKD3D on 6700 XT on Arch

Hi,

I don't know what changed, but over the last few weeks, maybe after a bunch of updates, DXVK and VKD3D broke for me on games that were otherwise working perfectly, like Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Deus Ex Mankind Divided, both using their own versions of Proton that were working fine.

I've tried everything I could to make it work -- in the case of N Sane Trilogy, back when it used to work fine, I found that the way to smooth out the frametime and the stuttering was to boost the GPU and the CPU to max speed, worked fine every single time... except now. It just won't run smooth anymore, the framerate is all over the place, completely stuttery, like vsync isn't applying correctly.

I've also tried to run it both with TearFree enabled or disabled, tried enabling or disabling vsync in game as well, see which of the settings will produce a smooth framerate again -- no dice. the frametime graph is one huge line that is going up and down so fast, it just looks like a big one. It doesn't maintain 60 fps anymore either, sometimes dropping 58-56... to me, it's unplayable like this, since I can't even fully disable both tearfree and vsync game and at least have a teary but still playable gameplay.

On DXMD, when using VKD3D, the issue is even more egregious -- frametime goes up to 100 ms and framerate tanks to 10 FPS. Just what is going on? I tried downgrading Mesa (I was using 23.1-devel, went back to stable lib32-mesa and mesa 22.3) changing the kernel to lts, maybe changing around the otherwise perfectly working proton setups that both games had... Nothing, and I just don't understand why it wouldn't output the same smooth framerate it used to.

Another thing to note -- I have both TearFree and VariableRefresh set to true, altho most of the time I use a non VRR TV -- sometimes I do use a monitor that's connected to the same PC, but this configuration gave me no problems in the past so that's why it's like this.

Here's the only 2 files I really tampered with, the TearFree conf file and the environment file.

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amdgpu.conf

Section "Device"

Identifier "AMD"

Driver "amdgpu"

Warframe - Lutris Install not launching

Hello,

I am trying to get Warframe running on Linux via Lutris, but I have had no luck so far. After the game installs, and I exit as per the scripts instructions, it says that the launcher .exe cannot be found. Changing the launcher to point to Warframes .exe causes it to launch, then quickly turn back off. I have confirmed that the necessary graphics drivers are installed. World of Tanks works perfectly through Lutris, while Installing Warframe through wine-staging works mostly fine (except for the lack of any graphical textures rendering).
Is there something else I need to do to get Warframe working in Lutris?

Should I use in-game vsync on Wayland?

I've been wondering what is the best way to handle the vsync option in games when using Wayland. Given that Wayland already has some sort of system-wide vsync already (or triple buffering, or whatever else you categorize it as) is it best to disable vsync in games, as to not "double" this effect? Or do these technologies not interfere with one another? Or does this differ depending on the game? I use GNOME Wayland on Arch. I should also add that I have a 144hz Freesync monitor, but do not have VRR support on GNOME Wayland. I can never tell if vsync off or on is the right way to go, I'm prone to placebo when I try to test it myself.

What about in the case of an older game such as Counter Strike or CSGO that I can achieve hundreds of frames in, but has no real frame limiter, should vsync be enabled there (on Wayland)?

Trying to get vortex on linux for mods not sure which one i should use?

Hey so I'm new to modding on Linux as i tend to just go to my windows duel boot for mods due to tools like vortex and such making my life a lot easier. But i did a small search for the best way to get vortex working on Linux and everyone said the lutris scripts are the best. But i can see 2 on their page and I'm not sure how to choose which one to go for as there's no rating system or anything.

Does anyone have experience with installing vortex on Linux? If so which script should I go with/Is lutris even the recommended way to do this? Hell I'll even take another mod manager if you got a recommendation. I just don't wanna do everything manually anymore.

(I'm on archcraft if that helps too)

Pop_OS: Streaming on Twitch using OBS - All capture methods result in a poor/lagging stream and/or game.

Hardware: i7 11700k Radeon 6700xt 32gb DDR4 @ 3600mhz 4x monitors (59hz,165hz,144hz,60hz)

I switched from an Nvidia 2070 to the amd 6700xt about two weeks ago. I was experiencing poor performance streaming both in game as well as poor results on Twitch. After making the switch I can't say I notice any difference in streaming performance.

I have read that differing refresh rates are bad and it will default to the lowest, but I'm definitely not even getting 60hz. Most games are unplayable when I stream, way less than 60. And this problem only exists when I stream. If I play off stream all games run great no matter what my refresh rates are set to.

The odd thing that I noticed is that every time this happened my in game fps counter would report 70, 90, 130 fps just like normal. It just never actually felt like that fps was being achieves. Some games would report 100 fps while it actually felt like 15.

I've tried both X and Wayland, the issue seems to persist with either. I've tried both pipewire and xcomposite for window capture. I can't say one works better than the other, but depending on the game that seems to be the case. Screen capture was pretty bad and I'd like to avoid using that for streaming anyway.

The OBS version available on the pop shop is a few versions behind the version available from OBS's website maybe I should try that?

At the end of the day I want to stream from Linux to promote its usability as a daily driver as well as a gaming platform. Which honestly it does quite well, but to actually capture that is a whole other story. Pretty much all if my streams have devolved into troubleshooting streams, or have ended prematurely due to technical issues.

Does this experience sound familiar to anyone? Am I doing something wrong here?

Wine keeps crashing when i try to run an EXE

There is 2 games i've been trying to run on mac, a Jojo fangame called "The seventh stand user" and a Pokemon fangame called "How you survive a Pokemon journey"

Now, as i understand, i have to use the command "winecfg" to open wine preloader and add the exe file to wine in there, i did it with both games

The Jojo fangame (RPG_RT.exe) works although the text is buggy and has weird kerning that makes it hard to read at times, but it is playable, meanwhile when i try to open the Pokemon game the wine icon shows up on the deck but it dissapears as soon as i click somewhere else, and it never loads

https://preview.redd.it/qibz33dlfhca1.png?width=405&format=png&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=8da16b06f7e6a1cdb3bf6b6716f169144b660918

The Jojo game only works when i rightclick it and use Open with Wine, when i try to use "wine file.exe" in the terminal both of them show me the same error message of "0009:err:module:__wine_process_init L"C:\\windows\\system32\\game.exe" not found"

I'm using MacOs 10.14.6 with the latest version of Wine Stable and XQuartz 2.7.7

(I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but in finder, the Jojo game has all caps like in wine preloader, while the other game has a capital G but every time i add it it shows as uncapitalized)

Nvidia 3070ti (high?) IDLE voltage

Good evening folks!

I have a nvidia 3070 ti (well yes, I know nvidia is on linux .... but it is what it is) . and I managed it to undervolt the GPU whit "overclock" and then setting an offset.

While it works fine on gaming (coming from round about 1100 mV to 900 mV) the gpu dosn`t seem to go into an correct idle state.

If the GPU does nearly nothing (just desktop and 3 terminals) it drains about 837,500 mV which is imho way too high for just display an static image on 2 displays. (Well the 2 displays have 165hz but and one is an ultraqhd while the other is a full HD display, but does this really need nearly as much voltage as on gaming?)

My settings:

OS: EndeavourOS
GPU: 3070 ti FE
Nvidia Driver: 525.78.01
Kernel: 6.1.6-zen1-1-zen

Undervoltingsettings I set:

sudo nvidia-smi -pm 1
sudo nvidia-smi -i 0 -pl 260
sudo nvidia-smi -i 0 -lgc 210,1890
/usr/bin/nvidia-settings -a "[gpu:0]/GPUGraphicsClockOffsetAllPerformanceLevels=220"
/usr/bin/nvidia-settings -a "[gpu:0]/GPUPowerMizerMode=0"

P-State seems to be P0, which means performance, I did not figured it out, how I can set the p12 (power saving) state on idle...

I appreciate any help (excluding the "buy an AMD card" one, its already on the todo list for the next upgrade)

Just ordered a 6800xt after using nvidia for the past 10 years. Should I use TKGs mesa or mesa-git over the standard mesa driver in the arch repo?

Haven't owned an AMD gpu since the HD 6000 series (bit confusing since the new cards have the same name). Since I use linux and 6800xt are a sane price now I just went for it before they go up again or are out of stock. Sadly I missed out on a 6900xt for 590 by mere minutes as they had upgraded to a RTX 4080 and were looking to sell. Anyway since I'm not too familiar with AMD cards under linux I wondered if anyone could give me pointers. I've read that using the TKG mesa driver that some games have better RT - although I'm not too bothered about RT it's a nice bonus to have. Also is undervolting possible under linux with amd cards? It's a bit of a pain on nvidia cards afaik

Need help to decide how to move forward currently owning Pascal-based Nvidia GPU (1080Ti)

Hello,

I recently tried linux gaming for the first time, after a long time of feeling "dirty" to dual boot with Windows 10 ONLY to play games. It's the last thing that keeps me from moving on, especially seeing where company is heading with Windows 11.

My weirdness aside, I tested out Nobara Linux 37 and was really suprised how most of games worked after minor preparations. But here's the thing - I built PC with GeForce 1080Ti, so Pascal architecture. It was over four years ago, I needed to squeeze most of games I wanted to play, so didn't mind having Windows for gaming and Linux for everything else, including work. Now I feel that I can finally switch to Linux 100%, but here's my specs:

GPU: Palit GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GameRock 11GB GDDR5X

CPU: Intel i7-8700

RAM: HyperX 16GB 2666MHz Fury Black CL16 (2x8GB)

Motherboard: ASUS TUF Z390-PLUS GAMING

PSU: be quiet! 600W Pure Power

Storage: Samsung 500GB M.2 PCIe NVMe 970 EVO (Windows) + Samsung 250GB 970 EVO M.2 2280 NVMe (Linux)

CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock

Case: be quiet! Pure Base 600

You see this setup has a lot of problems, but it is my first PC build and it was before or just as Nvidia announced new architecture cards and AMD started their new line of products. Also I think I should go for AMD CPU.

My goal is to have reliable 60 frames on 1440p resolution, Medium/High/Ultra settings are less important, same goes for Native/FXR/DLSS.

So there's couple to many problems with this setup to future proof gaming on linux. 1080Ti craps out playing Elden Ring, and it will probably be the case for the rest of DX12 games (have to test CP2077, but I expect same results) - of course I can play no problem, even online, coop/invasions didn't bother me much, but constant stuttering is distracting.

My sit-n-chill go-to game No Man's Sky - works like a butter launched directly from Steam with some FXR tinkering, but I also have more current gameplay on GOG Galaxy - and installing it through it causing more problems with performance - I think it's down to some clever configuration to make it work, get shaders etc. But Steam is ok too.

I was suprised that some multiplayer time-wasters like Mordhau and Killing Floor 2 worked without any troubles - both are based on UE4, so maybe that's it.

So...probably most of my library works, but most recent titles don't. Now I see three solutions:

1) Nuclear: cry a lot, replace literally every part to make it work with most recent GPUs (here I would love to know your top picks) - motherboard, cause old Intel socket, new CPU, power supply because it's only 600W and of course new GPU.

2) Balanced: Downgrade (but not really?) - switch to something like RTX 3060Ti or RX 6600 XT (also - love to know your picks) or maybe even something like Intel Arc A750, seeing rapid development of drivers. Use FXR/DLSS, although there's so many informations to digest that I already forgot how DLSS is currently supported on linux

3) Acceptance: my current solution - keep smaller partition with debloated Windows on it, play on Linux where it's possible, play on Windows where it's not (like 10-20% of cases?). By the time Windows 11 will be a must for some reason, I will probably be ready for option 1 or 2 anyway.

On the side note - I don't think it's safe to use same distribution for gaming and day-to-day work, especially if distro elevates privileges to simplify some things, but if someone could correct me or confirm, that would be great :)

TL;DR: I want to replace my 1080Ti with something more recent because of Pascal architecture problems on DX12 games, I don't mind possible "downgrade" in favor of using FXR/DLSS, I need stable 60fps on 1440p resolution. My current spec is probably a bottleneck for more powerful cards, but I might consider switching everything in the future. Also I know close to nothing about all technologies involved in making linux capable of running games, so sorry if my post is too vague, but I need a plan and find it hard to make one.

And of course I'm really happy to see how far Linux got in terms of compatibility with games. It's really mindblowing and can potentially open doors to other things (Adobe will probably just add another lock and chain their doors, but I digress). I'm all for it, had a lot of problems with proprietary software other than games, often hindering my work and creating blinding, harmful trends on the market, so it's always great to see movements like that, cause they show that it's possible to go past those artificial limitations and locking users to one ecosystem. But it's a different, long subject.

Thanks in advance and have a nice day :)

My Quest 2 isn't connecting to my Linux computer

I keep trying to access the internal files so i can manually add Bone lab mods, however a day or two ago every time since i try to get into the Quest 2 it keeps displaying a error saying: "Unhandled error message; The name :1.172 was not provided by any .service files" can anyone help me with fixing this? If something bad happens to my game i can't recover my save data and mods. And also some mods i have to manually fix by taking out a sub-folder that house all the mod files that should really be with the other mod folders. I've tested several cords, and I've eliminated any that can't work from the equation. Ive tried updating the quest 2 and my computer, I'm at a loss here.

Steam Tinker Launch not saving custom command

I'm trying to run RDR2 with a mod menu, however when I set the .exe and set "use custom command" and "fork custom command," I select "save and exit." The game doesn't launch and I go back to Steam Tinker where it shows I still have those two boxes checked but the custom command has been set back to "PlayRDR2.exe". Is there a workaround for this or a way to fix it?

Audio stutters in games using Proton, native games and other apps have no issue at all.

Title.

Basically, whenever I play a semi-intensive game using proton, the audio stutters, even tho the fps might be fine. The games that this happens are Hades and Persona 4 Golden, with the second one using Proton GE.

This has been happening for a long time, and I have tried many fixes, but none of them worked. (Most were relate to the /etc/pulse/daemon.config file, and others simply told me to remove pulseaudio and try pipewire)

Today I decided to test if this is linux itself that is lagging, or just the game, and I found that only the game's audio lags, as spotify was able to play songs as normal, with no issues at all. Another test I made a while ago also showed me that I had around 2gb of RAM left while playing P4, and that the game was also using around 50 - 60% of my CPU, so that's not the problem, especially considering that this never happened on Windows.

Does anyone know the solution to this? Or, if not, at least the cause? It makes these games basically unplayable with sound, and I really enjoy the music and voice acting in both of them.

System specs:

Operating System: Kubuntu 22.04

KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.7

KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0

Qt Version: 5.15.3

Shutting down of Google Stadia is a net negative for the Linux Gaming ecosystem

I'm not a fan of Google by any means. And I think it's natural many expected Stadia to be dead on arrival thanks to the infamous history of project shutdowns by Google. Compared to Valve which gained a strong goodwill in the linux gameing community and heavily invests into open-source technologies like Arch, KDE, Vulkan, Proton, DXVK, the list goes on, Google and Stadia though used Linux, didn't give anything back to the community. They didn't have to though, the fact that they used Linux meant they used Vulkan and they did and it was a good thing. It was another incentive for developers to target the API. But now that Stadia's gone, there is one less incentive.With Microsoft acquiring more and more developer studios, they most certainly are gonna make it arbitrary to utilize Directx 12 to develop in-house games. And it's sad especially when ID tech showed with DOOM games what you can achieve by using Vulkan. rant over

RDR2 does the impossible: Wayland tearing

Finally saw some screen tearing on my system for the first time since switching to Wayland. I'm not looking for support solving it, I'd just like to explore how this is possible at all on Wayland. It seems even on Windows, Red Dead Redemption 2 / Red Dead Online has a serious screen tearing problem with the DX11 Vulkan version, the one that works so well with Proton. I can achieve a greatly high frame rate on my RX6900xt, but no matter what combination of in-game vsync triple buffering and even Freesync on xorg, the tearing doesn't go away, it looks like spacetime is being ripped apart halfway through my screen, it is especially noticeable in gameplay recordings.

In the past on xorg even with VRR enabled, when I'd see screen tearing on my monitor, it wouldn't show up in gameplay recordings for some reason. RDR2 is the exception, leading me to speculate that it's something to do with how the game is rendering itself rather than an actual frametime issue. So I just sort of have to live with it, but it is very very noticeable in gameplay recordings.

Does this also happen on the Steam Deck? Has anyone else experienced this anywhere? Although it wasn't Wayland's fault, it was the first time seeing any tearing on Wayland at all since the years I've been using it, sort of nostalgic honestly.

Decky Plugins on Desktop Steam?

Hi guys, on my Steam Deck I use this amazing set of steam extensions called decky-loader which extends the steam client UI to add a bunch of cool things. The plugins I consider must-haves include the Proton-Badge plugin, which tells you the proton db rating in the banner of each game, the steam-db artwork plugin, which allows you to change all the graphics for steam games in the UI, and the HowLongToBeat plugin which shows you how long it takes most people to complete a game.

Does anyone know if it's possible to get this widget to work on the standard Linux steam client? After having used the steam deck for months with these plugins it really feels like a huge step backwards using the vanilla steam linux desktop client.

Linux equivalent to the Power Options menu in Windows?

I use an HP Omen laptop which are notorious for the cpu overheating when gaming which causes slowdowns in game. On Windows, setting the maximum process state to anything below 100% would fix that issue for me, but I don't seem to find that option on Linux at least by default.

Are there any apps where I can freely limit the CPU Processes? Preferably with a GUI.

Solution for crash/freeze when changing settings:

go to: "drive_c/users/admin/Documents/Need For Speed(TM) Unbound/settings" in proton or wine folder (where game is installed) (look steamapps folder if steam user) open with a txt editor PROFILEOPTIONS_profile and change GstRender.OverallGraphicsQuality to 4 for highest or 3 for high and GstRender.upsampler to 1 for fsr.

You can also change individual settings from here.

I decided to do this mini "tutorial" because I have seen a lot of people with this problem with no solution online. I'd post this to protondb but i can't figure out why my posts aren't showing up there.

Also I'm using X11

Reshade using Wine on Proton

Hi!
I'm fairly new to Linux gaming and so I need some help running Reshade.
I bought a Steam Deck and I've installed PCSX2 to play some old PS2 games.
I usually play PCSX2 using Reshade so I can change the look of some games (mainly GT4).

I installed Wine so I could run the .exe to install Reshade and it works. Problem is, it asks me to select the .exe from the game I want to change. But it's the linux version of PCSX2 so there is no .exe to select, I'd wager?

I tried the different method of placing the dll's and ini's directly onto the PCSX2 folder but alas, there is no .exe for Reshade to link to.

Can you guys help me?
I'm sorry if it's a bit to confusing to understand my problem, English isn't my first language.

If any additional info is needed or missing, tell me and I'll give it to you.

Option to apply different audio effects to different sources at the same time

I can use EasyEffects to apply various audio effects. For example, I can use noise suppression on the voice chat of my teammates, and level the volume so that everyone is equally loud. I love this, and I use it every day.

I can also use EasyEffects to make quiet game sounds louder. That's also great, but it appears that I can't use it at the same time.

Do you know an option so that I can do both things?

Memory clock stuck low on the 7900XTX

Hi folks! I recently bought a Sapphire 7900XTX FE. I've had some issues with the temps, but not as bad as others (mine plateau at around 95C and I think I can lower those with some water cooling once EK releases blocks).

My real issue is with the Memory clock. The reference memory clock is supposed to be 2500MHz, but mine is always stuck at 1249MHz regardless of load, temperature or anything else. It stays there from 60C to 95C, never moving. I'm tracking this in CoreCtrl, and I can see the line denoting that clock never moving! Shader clock ramps up and down completely normally, so no issues with that. The following command also confirms the same thing that CoreCtrl shows.

 cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_dpm_mclk
0: 96Mhz
1: 456Mhz
2: 772Mhz
3: 1249Mhz *

Now, I have 2 identical 7900XTX and they both exhibit this behavior. Performance on the other hand seems to be decent, so I'm thinking this may be a driver bug, displaying this incorrectly.

I just want to see if anyone else is experiencing the same or if they have any clue how I can start to track down this problem.

My specs:

  • Motherboard: Asrock X570 Taichi
  • PSU: Corsair RM850i
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X (24) @ 3.700GHz
  • GPU: AMD ATI Radeon 7900 XTX
  • RAM: 4x8GB G.Skill Trident Z Neo running stable @ 3666 MHz
  • OS: Arch Linux
  • DE: Plasma 5.26.5
  • Kernel: 6.1.3-arch1-1
  • Mesa: 23.0.0_devel

Some benchmarks:

  • Furmark @ 3840x2160 = 368 AVG FPS
  • Unigine Heaven @ 2560x1440 = 180 AVG FPS
  • GravityMark @ 2560x1440 = 320AVG FPS

CSGO Crashes when joining a lobby/game

Hello, I've been running on arch linux for the past couple of months and tried to run CSGO, but ran into an issue where it came up to a black screen. I saw on another post that you had to install gperftools and mv libtcmalloc_minimal.so.0 to libtcmalloc_minimal.so.0.orig in the csgo directory then copy /usr/lib/libtcmalloc_minimal_debug.so.4(current version) to libtcmalloc_minimal.so.0 in the CSGO directory. I did that, and the game launched, but when I tried to join a lobby with my friends or even play a game, my game would instantly crash. Does anyone have a solution to this or maybe troubleshooting recommendations?

Seriously using Proton GE and having swapped to Nobara Im getting 120fps on a Nvidia GTX 1660 and 9th gen i5 on an old MSI, playing Subnautica and Borderlands 3. The amount of development and buttery smooth game play is incredible. Linux gaming has come a long way from where it was even a year ago. TLDR; incredible software enhancements making old hardware run like new again, thanks Nobara dev.

Kudos to Bas Nieuwenhuizen for figuring out the crash issue!

Just tested performance with RX 6800 XT and 2560x1440 and it's like 12 fps on medium preset, lol. But at least with those patches it's not crashing :)

Using an Xbox Elite controller in Star Citizen: cannot resolve axis mapping issue

I have an Xbox Elite controller. Really amazing controller. One of its features however is that the two triggers are axes.

I'm trying set it up in Star Citizen but I'm having trouble being able to map a pull along the trigger axis to the fire weapon command (which requires a button, not axis input). I have inserted SDL2 controller mapping strings into the Lutris system options, created a Antimicrox gamepad map file and have that in Lutris system options, adjusted the WINE registry, and changed things around in the Game Controllers menu in WINE.

This is what I've gotten so far:

WINE Control Panel -> Game Controllers -> Connected (xinput device)

Every time I have the controller in xinput device (an input layer that translates devices into an Xbox Original/Xbox 360 controller), I find the trigger axis causes constant upscrolling in the options menu (it's being misunderstood as "up-down" on the right stick). I have to hold the trigger exactly in the middle within the deadzone to prevent the controller from scrolling the menu crazily. I also find that the right stick yaw axis is not properly calibrated in xinput and it drifts right at rest and I can't look left. This happens irrespective of SDL2 string or antimicrox gamepad profile in the Lutrix config, or presence of "Map Controllers" registry DWORD = "0" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /System/CurrentControlSet/Services/winebus. I have "saved" a calibration in antimicrox to no apparent effect (albeit the the input looks fine in that app, it's just the xinput layer that is miscalibrated).

WINE Control Panel -> Game Controllers -> Connected [override]

Without "Map Controllers" registry DWORD = "0" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /System/CurrentControlSet/Services/winebus I got no recognizable controller input ingame

With "Map Controllers" registry DWORD = "0" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /System/CurrentControlSet/Services/winebus The controller registers as a joystick. Every axis is calibrated correctly and there is no uncontrollable menu scrolling, but the issue is the trigger registers as an axis and neither SDL2 strings or antimicrox gamepad profiles are actually remapping it to a button, and the game does not support mapping an axis to firearm - fire, it only supports a button.

tl;dr: Basically, the Elite controller is coming in all weird in the xinput layer (which should really be seen as obsolete anyway) with no help from an included SDL2 controller map string, meanwhile when in override with that registery DWORD active the SDL2 string or antimicrox controller mapping don't actually remap the trigger into button. All I need is not to have the wonky input from the xinput player, and have the trigger axis remapped as a button for a game I'm launching via Lutris but nothing seems to work.

Hey fellow and much smarter Linux users! Have a quick question about gaming on Linux (probably Ubuntu distro) on the MacBook Pro in 2015!

Will moving over to Linux possibly improve gaming performance for Minecraft? Have an extra laptop and the kids are looking to play together and this 2015 laptop plays okay ish around 20/27 fps!

Would switching over to Ubuntu possibly up the fps?

Titles using Easy Anti-Cheat having issues with Steam Overlay fixable with gamescope

I am playing Insurgency Sandstorm and recently Steam Overlay stopped working. It's required to invite friends to the same group. It worked fine before the latest Frenzy mode 'update'. I am not sure what caused it exactly.

Anyway, a similar (or exact same) issue was reported years ago https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/issues/5794.

Apparently, the EAC window 'steals Steam Overlay', and when the game loads it will not initialize. To fool that, a single window using gamescope keeps the Steam Overlay open.

I am using 21:9 3440x1440 and I set the game as borderless window, so my launch command is:

gamescope -b -W 3440 -H 1440 -w 3440 -h 1440 %command%

-b make the window borderless
-W output width
-H output height
-w game width
-h game height

gamescope --help for rest and keyboard shortcuts.

The game froze for me on splash screen when I was trying it out, so you might run gamescope without any parameters which for 16:9 screens is all you need. 21:9 is awesome for FPS tho.

For Arch Linux gamescope is in community repo.

AMD Rewards on Linux!

Historically, you have not been able to redeem AMD Rewards on a Linux system as they require you to download a verification .exe tool to verify the AMD product. There's a few previous posts about this such as this.

I recently purchased a Ryzen 5 5600 CPU from Amazon which came with an AMD Reward for a game. I thought I'd try to go through the redemption process anyways, and sure enough I was initially hit by the same roadblock. After emailing their support (just in case), they informed me that they have a (working) beta version of the PVT script for Linux!

They provided me the standard link amdrewards.com/pvt as well as some basic instructions for making the script executable and running it. The thing they didn't mention was the site detects what OS you're using and automatically downloads the version for your system. I assume this is just "Windows or Linux" at this point, but I haven't tested further. I initially logged in on my Windows machine, and the one button only downloaded the .exe.

A few things to mention: the Linux server I'm using this CPU in is headless, and you have to log into the PVT site to download the script. I could have maybe messed around with a wget or curl script, but I wasn't sure how to get past the login, and I know there are tools to spoof the OS from the browser you're using, Brave in my case. But I happen to have Linux on a laptop. After signing in to the AMD Rewards site, it downloaded the pvt.sh script just fine. I followed a few prompts, but the process took only a minute or two to complete. After it finished, I re-loaded the AMD Rewards site, and my credit was waiting for me! I just had to authorize their site to use my Steam profile, and the game was immediately added to my library.

Just a note, it appears that my account login information is obfuscated into the script as it recognized my account during the redemption process. I haven't dug through the almost-31k line script yet, but I couldn't find my account details using any common text search tools. There was no prompt during the script to sign in, but at one point it did show my account email address, and this was from the headless server which had certainly logged into their site. As such, you probably wouldn't be able to have someone else download the script and then just run it on your system, at least not without signing into the AMD Rewards site on their system.

TL;DR - You can activate AMD Rewards on Linux now. You have to sign into https://www.amdrewards.com/pvt on a Linux system, and the "Download Product Verification Tool" button will download a pvt.sh script. Run the script, follow the prompts, and after it completes you will be able to redeem the item on your account.

Red Dead Redemption 2, lighting bugs on RX 7900 XT

Hey, i recently picked up a 7900 XT and gave RDR2 another go and noticed some lightning bugs, as can be seen in the screenshot here, i think this might be a bug in the driver, but would like someone to confirm this before i file a bug report to the devs.

I'll provide some more general information here:

GPU: Radeon RX 7900 XT GPU driver: mesa-git 1:23.1.0_devel.165238.4fb2463a37f-1 (installed through (1)) Lutris Runner: lutris-GE-proton-7-35

(1) mesa-git unofficial repository

Besides the lighting bugs the game runs mostly fine on basically maxed settings (except for some in the advanced section) with some crashes, where used VRAM spikes to the full 20GB of the card and the game just doesn't respond anymore and i have to kill the process.

Grand Theft Auto IV on Linux

I have purchased and modded this game on Windows 7 when my gpu was alive. I tried dxwrapper on there to remove stutter, it does work though but it comes back when switching to tbogt or tlad.

The reason I brought dxwrapper to this post is last time on Mint 20.3, I tried running it with dxwrapper in Lutris.

So does Dxvk completely solves the stutter issue or such.

I will be having a hard time anyway to play it with an old gpu from late 2000s on Linux since it doesn't support Vulkan and OpenGL 4.

I also want to use Steam for remote playing on phone. I did tried but I do need Rx 570.

Also will moonlight or sunshine will alter fps or such on Rx 570?

Happy gaming guys and girls.

Mouse jitter when in game?

Hello good people.

I am seriously getting annoyed with a specific issue I am having. Right now I am forced to use Wayland session for actual VRR support and with Wayland session I get jittery mouse movement in certain games, its not that the game is jittering, just the mouse cursor, which makes it hard to determine where the F I am going to click. I am using an Odyssey G9 at 5120x1440 (120hz as 240hz is not working because of DSC). I am using EndeavourOS with all the latest updates.

Has anyone else here faced this same issue and know a fix? For example, running Final Fantasy 14 with Lutris introduces this mouse jittery movement, same as Diablo 2 Resurrected through Lutris. There have been occasions where some steam games does the same, but not nearly as frequent.

Thanks peeps.

Is Fortnite now possible on Linux?

I have been wondering if its now possible to play it on Linux through Heroic or anything else.

This question came to my mind when I asked my cousin if he wants Linux Mint for single player games. He does play online though. He is close to selling his pc, he already games on ps4 mostly gta 5 and fortnite. I just want to know this please.

I guess the Easy Anti Cheat or whatever this game uses could still be giving problems

Currently pcless me for now, that is why asking here.

Stay calm, positive, civil and happy gaming.

[Need help] Getting transparent popup error when installing Steam

Hi,

Trying for hours to install the Windows Steam version but it fails all the time. I get an error but cannot see the content... so it's not obvious. Note that's the same for the Steam installer, text is transparent.

I tried with multiple tools:

- CrossOver (exact error described here)

- Portal Kit (stuck on installing installing winetrick vcrun2017, no error message)

- Wineskin Winery (exact error described here)

- PlayOnMac (their website is down, and comments are not great... I'm not a fan to take the runnable from elsewhere)

See below what it looks like. Note that I'm on MacOS Ventura on a Intel based processor (Macbook Pro 2020).

This may look like the error described in this thread but not sure: https://www.codeweavers.com/support/forums/general/?t=27;msg=271440

Maybe a missing font to get the context of the error? But how to fix this?

I checked Privacy&Security all the time and MacOS never blocked something from Wine...

Thank you,

Tips and rule of thumbs for gaming on Intel Arc?

Hi all!

TL;DR: Are there any knowns tips and tricks for Arc users that should be applied on the spot, for general usage, not just some picked games? Maybe some Proton run parameters?

I've been using Arch Linux as my main OS for many years now. Thanks to ease of use of Proton, I can even game on it and my KVM VM is rarely being used.

Few days ago I bought Intel Arc A770 GPU (upgrade(?) from GTX 1070).
I know there's a lot of problems and rumours about the first gen Intel's GPUs but it is cheap card and I wanted to try some new piece of hardware and be, for the first time, an early adaptor. In the worst case scenario I am ready to buy AMD's GPU on spot and put that Arc on eBay.

But to the point: I tested a few games I like to play in the free time and most of them works just fine, what was surprising (RDR2, Control, Isonozo, Metro Exodus, L.A. Noire etc. - range from 2010 to 2022).
But some of them, like Ready or Not or Ghostwire: Tokyo aren't working very well.

RoN crashes at start when I try to use DX11, on DX12 it gives me a black screen with menu music.
Ghostwire shows me splash screens and then throws at me "UE4: Fatal error".

And I was wondering: are there any knowns tips and tricks for Arc users that should be applied on the spot, for general usage, not just some picked games? Maybe some Proton run parameters?

I recently treated myself with a huge upgrade from my 6700K/2060 to 7700X/7900XTX. One tiny oversight: my main OS, ubuntu, did not support the new GPU. I've also tried installing pop_os 22.04 due to someone's recommendation, but the kernel stdout was clear: boot hang on "changing output from efi video to amdgpu". I overlooked the fact that you need linux 6.0+ to use the 7900 series, and unable to even get to GRUB, now I'm stuck with windows for months.

My question is: did nobody get caught off-guard with this? Not a single soul who has this issue? Did noone using Debian/Ubuntu upgrade, or is it that everyone who have upgraded are all using some rolling release distro? Also, can someone recommend a distro that will work out of the box with my GPU?

I had work to do: updating some software that I wrote to the hardware upgrade... And looks like I'll be wasting all my break and instead be forced to do that when the semester begins, when I'll be busy AF.

Having some trouble getting s.t.a.l.k.e.r. call of pripyat working, notorious " your video card doesn't meet game requirements"

Hi guys, ive JUST switched over to Linux mint after being on windows pretty much exclusively for almost 15 years, I recently got s.t.a.l.k.e.r. call of pripyat and i love the game, have been sinking a lot of time into it but i went to boot up the game with steam and got a crash on startup with a generic error of "your video card doesn't meet game requirements". Looking online it seems like this is a an issue with not having the DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer, but i could very much be wrong. Ill post my info below + what I've tried so far:

  1. clearing AppData folder
  2. Changing resolution in user.ltx file
  3. Changing default graphics within the user.ltx file
  4. Changing resolution
  5. Deleting shadercache
  6. Trying proton layers
  7. Forcing proton

I'm really bummed out that i cant seem to get it to work, looking at proton Db this error seems to be a hit or a miss for most people, I am on Mint, Ver 21.1, 5600x and RX 6800XT. Any and all help would be appreciated, thanks!

text only games that fit on a 46 column display?

I have an Arduino hooked up over USB and I wrote some code that takes in serial data and spits it out onto a CRT using TVOut, I have enough escape codes implemented to run some sort of basic text adventure or roguelike, but sadly I haven't found one that would work for me as I'm limited to 46 columns, I tried nethack but it isn't very playable

I need bottles or wine. Besides that if it is possible to be able to play them.

[TIP] Installing TKG-PDS on Ubuntu or Pop-OS

What I did to install TKG custom kernel with PDS sceduler on POP-OS 22.04 jammy with working nvidia driver(you can game):
for those unaware of the tkg custom kernel it's simple a fsync patched kernel with customizations tailored to specific setups.. meaning it can squeeze performance in your pc.
What to do to install:
take note of your stock kernel version: uname -r
also do nvidia-smi and if it's installed you can see your nvidia version there

Now make sure you have enough disk space 50> GB to compile .deb files

if all that is done you will go to the page of linux-tkg:
https://github.com/Frogging-Family/linux-tkg
and follow the instruction for debian and ubuntu derivatives section

it will take a while 2+ hours on my system (im on ryzen 5 4600H)

you also need internet connection when compiling.

What to put on the prompts when installing:

if you are asked for the kernel version to be compiled/installed

this is the most important part. it is important that you use the closest kernel version to stock or nvidia drivers will not work ex.
6.0.6(stock)
options:

0)6.2
1)6.1
2)6.0.5 or 6.0.7 <-- you will choose this one
3)5.15

also there will be prompts for the scheduler which really vital too . for me i used PDS (this will depend on the number of cores in your system or if ur computer processor is Intel/AMD .. The default for this is CFS)
on all other prompts that come after i simply hit enter. except for the microarchitecture part. you need to put your processor family there

after all this steps is done it will compile for a while (2+ hrs)

then you will be prompt to put [Y/n] in the end to install . Put [Y] and it will install then you need to restart the pc and run the custom kernel in the GRUB menu.. or boot menu.

then if all is well then you will open terminal

uname -r

you will see your kernel tkg suffixed

nvidia-smi

check if is working.. In total i spent 15 hrs to figure this out and now I can say its totally worth it and also rewarding at the same time

if you follow this guide it will take you way less time than mine. to install the custom kernel.

Fullscreen vs Borderless windowed, does it make a difference?

Has anyone put actual numbers into this? I'm wondering if borderless windowed nets you a performance penalty because of the extra processing from the compositor(?).

For example, playing Monster Hunter: Rise on Windows, I had frequent stutters and some slowdowns which I imagine are due to the Windows compositor forcing triple buffer v-sync on top of the game's own v-sync when running borderless. Fullscreen fixed it, would this be true for GNOME or KDE as well?

TL;DR: does borderless windowed perform worse than fullscreen due to desktop environment compositing

terrible performance on nobara with i3.

i'm hovering around 200 - 240fps with the official nobara gnome DE, but it drops to 100ish when using i3 (overwatch2, bottles with dxvk_async). and it feels like it's running at 30fps.

i remember having no performance problems when i used arch w/ bspwm a year ago (csgo). on windows i'm running warzone2 at around 80-100fps and it doesn't feel nearly as bad as overwatch2 on my i3.

something is obviously terribly wrong. why does it work fine in gnome but borks in i3?

happy to provide more in-depth info when needed. any help is appreciated.

Fractional scaling woes with Proton games

I'm using Nobara 37 (default version with GNOME 3) and, if I enable fractional scaling (125% for example), the resolution in my Steam games is broken. It shows lower resolutions that my monitor's native resolution.

When I ran into this issue in Windows, I could just configure the executable to ignore the scaling but I can't find any such fix or workaround here, and Google is failing me.

Has anyone run into this before, and if so, is there a way to use actual fractional scaling (not just pumping up font size) while still having games use my monitor's native resolution?

Wine 7.0.1 via lutris 0.5.12 says esync not found with wine

Hello, I installed wine-7.0.1 yesterday via the instructions on their website and lutris 0.5.12 via luris-releases . I had Nier - Automata installed on my windows directory so I added the game using Wine runner and platform Windows. It gave the error that the wine version I have does not support esync.

How do I go forth solving this?

From what I read online, wine version 5.20+ and lutris -.5.9+ have sync enabled by default,

My system does support Esync, from what I checked Lutris Docs: HowToEsync with the output of ulimit -Hn being ``1048576`` .

Issues with mods in Ready or Not on Linux

Hello everyone,

I'm playing Ready or Not and it works fine overall. Just when I try to install mods I'm stuck. When I click the "mods" button in the main menu I get an error saying mod.io SDK was not initialized. I can only click ok in the message, nothing else.

I also tried Deep Rock Galactic, which does also use mod.io and there it works fine.

Binding of Isaac extreme lag when moving while shooting

I thought Binding of Isaac would be a good game to test a new Ubuntu install because it allegedly runs on linux without needing proton, but there appears to be extreme visual delay when moving while shooting. if I rapidly change directions while shooting I can completely freeze the rendering and it takes about 15 seconds to catch back up. why would this be happening?

Unreal Tournament 469c Steam Linux Install + 4K Textures Install Instructions

Quick guide on how I got UT99 running with the latest patch (489c) and 4k Textures. Running this on Garuda (Arch-based) Linux

Unreal Tournament 469c Steam Linux Install + 4K Textures Install Instructions

  1. Install Unreal Tournament Game of the Year (GOTY) Edition from Steam
  2. Change the compatibility in Steam to Proton, in my case I'm using GloriousEggrolls proton fork (GE-Proton7-43) found here: https://github.com/GloriousEggroll/proton-ge-custom/releases
  3. Download the latest Windows Patch from https://github.com/OldUnreal/UnrealTournamentPatches/releases, I used OldUnreal-UTPatch469c-Windows.exe (183 MB) from Oct 30, 2022. I imagine the Windows Zip File would work as well. Note I tried both linux tar.bz2 files but after extracting over my UT install I'd get the UT splash screen and then a critical error (UTMenu.SlotWindow), might have been which renderer I was selecting but I didn't experiment too much.
  4. Run OldUnreal-UTPatch469c-Windows.exe via Wine, when prompted point the installer to your /SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/Unreal Tournament/ folder.
  5. Start up Unreal Tournament via steam and configure your preferences. Note Version should show [Version 469c - Release] in the Upper Right Hand corner of the UT Desktop
  6. Quit the game
  7. Download UT Bonus Pack 4 (If you already have Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition, you only need Bonus Pack 4, 1-3 are included in the GOTY edition.) Note I found the zip version here:https://unrealarchive.org/patches-updates/unreal-tournament/bonus-packs/bonus-pack-4/index.html Note2 Direct link that worked as of 1/14/2023: https://f002.backblazeb2.com/file/unreal-archive-files/updates/Unreal%20Tournament/Bonus%20Packs/utbonuspack4-zip.zip
  8. Download the UT 4k Texture pack from https://www.moddb.com/mods/ut99hd Note Direct Link: https://www.moddb.com/downloads/start/197930?referer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.moddb.com%2Fmods%2Fut99hd Note2 This is a pretty big download at 7.2GB
  9. Extract the textures to your /SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/Unreal Tournament/Textures/ folder, overwrite everything when it asks you (you'll see that the file sizes are much bigger compared to what was in there.) Example: Factory.utx was 545.2KiB compared to 16.7Mib from the 4k pack. 9.Launch the game via steam, everything should be up to date and with 4k textures now installed. Note I experience some graphical artifacts in the menus and on text, I run at a resolution of 3440x1440 on an Ultrawide so I thought maybe that was the cause but Gaming on Linux has an install video for running UT on a Steam Deck and it shows similar corruption: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSXH3RwnqB4 If anyone knows why / a fix let me know and I'll update this guide accordingly.

Suggestions for a gaming controller?

I've recently made the jump over to Pop!_OS and have been enjoying it so far. Unfortunately, my current desk/chair set up isn't the best ergonomically and so I'm having a little bit of shoulder pain with extended sessions. Looking to pick up a controller to help mitigate this somewhat.

I wanted to get some input as to what controllers you all might recommend. I'm leaning towards the GuliKit KingKong 2 although also considering the Xbox One controller or Dualsense 5. I'm leaning away from the Dualsense partly because I don't want a microphone attached to my stuff and also because the Xbox layout is my preference; my understanding is that it's also the default on screen prompt for most games.

Are there any particular features or things to think about with the different models? I play mostly FPS, indies, and RPGs and don't care too much about retro or Nintendo stuff at this point. Mostly through Steam as well.

Thanks!

Best All-In-One Gaming options

Hi All,

So, my wife has decided to start learning how to play FPS games. She is an accountant by trade, but has recently been intrigued by computer games. Perhaps this is due to my trying to teach her MTG and that not working out so well and the desire to play games together ;) .

She is not one for flashy RGB and the whole gamer imagery, but rather conservative in what a computer "Should" look like.

That said, she was interested not in a huge desktop or oversized laptop like we use to play games, but one of those "All-in-one" computers - something that she can use to play some older FPS games - like Quake, Quake 2, HL1/HL2, etc... and also do her day to day finances and other web browsing/email, etc.

She is also not interested in Windows or Mac (Yay, I have taught her well :-D ), so something that would run Linux without issue.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Gaming on risc-v as of now

I am aware that only boards have started shipping and such. Not much mass produced though with risc-v.

If Valve and the whole community were to bring proton/wine on risc-v arch on linux, would it solve the performance per watt stuff like Apple did with M1 (Android user here) e.g battery duration or hours, fanless design and maybe more.

Also what Windows games are playable on risc-v?

I keep thinking of Sony Psp, ps vita, Xperia play, Gameboy Advance and Nintendo Switch. Recently looked at Gpd Win 4 and it reminded me of what psp 2 would look like.

Again please stay calm, positive and healthy. Just a discussion.

Maybe in 2026 or even 2029 are we going to have Steam Deck with Risc-V arch?

The reason I am making this post is because x86 and arm still have licensing costs, while risc-v is free and open source.

And also because Arm is acting weird lately.

Peace.

Constant stuttering on cyberpunk, anyone else?

I had to reinstall my system the other day because I screwed it up and now I'm getting constant stuttering on cyberpunk, it looks like a heartbeat idling and in movement it's all over the place, my system should be more than capable of handling it (6900xt and 5800x3d). I'm not 100% sure that it wasn't happening before reinstall, but I don't remember being this stuttery. I've already checked my installation and I have all the correct package installed. Just wandering if it's just me.

Ubisoft facing the storm. the analysis of the CEO seems too simplistic.

Uh, Yves guillemot is admitting the not so cool period Ubisoft is facing (see this article https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/ubisofts-ceo-reportedly-tells-staff-the-onus-is-on-them-to-reverse-the-companys-fortunes/ ). In his words of possible desperation, I can't see a serious analysis of what's really happening.

Some of you will say: how is this relevant to linux gaming?

Well.... I'd say much more you can imagine.

First of all, Ubisoft seems the Microsoft of videogames: bloated and wallgardened. Ubisoft games consume a lot of space, use an unnecessary, bugged, cumbersome, useless launcher. Things that may annoy the user.

Second: Ubisoft has never been linux friendly. That may be odd for a mainly French sw house, but that's it. 10 years ago they said they were formulating "a linux plan", 10 years later the one linux they approached has been the superdoomed stadia. They haven't ever say a word about proton support in their games, and when stadia closed, they didn't release any linux binary. Neither for testing purpose.

Third: vulkan is also another mystery. Stadia could have been an excuse to start developing in vulkan side by side with dx12 (ex:somebody says rebellion?). Nope. Ubisoft will stick to dx12.

Fourth: Ubisoft games have generally a steep (hehe) learning curve. Once you get in touch, you are already interested in other products of someone else.

Dear yves, you have been a piece of history of the videogaming. I respect you. But maybe it's now time to step out and leave.

And switch to a linux friendly CEO.

Games in Heroic Games Launcher don't recognize my controller.

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this but the Heroic Games Launcher subreddit seems pretty inactive and i wasn't really able to find someone that had the same issue.

I wanted to play Rocket League (from Epic Games Launcher) on Linux Mint 21.1 using Heroic Games Launcher. The game runs just fine bit it doesn't recognize my controller (8Bitdo ultimate) at all.

What i tried:

  • Adding the Heroic Games Launcher to steam as a non steam game and launching it trough steam.
  • Adding Rocket League as a non steam game using the "Add to Steam option" in the launcher and launching it trough steam.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Problems with DX12 emulation on RX6800

I got a new machine setup today with a RX6800 and I can't seem to launch DX12 games with proton.

kernel: 5.10.0-20-amd64
Using amdgpu driver (mesa-vulkan-drivers v20.3.5)

Launching a windows game with DX12 from proton gives errors:

Halo Infinite:

Linux Gaming Distro For a Noob

So Im very relatively new to Linux, and I recently got a gaming laptop that I want to dual boot with Linux. Im only familiar with Pop OS, Ubuntu and my main driver is Fedora, so Im not sure which Distro would be suitable for a new learner. I like Pop OS and Ive heard good things about Nobara. Never used Arch, Manjaro or Gentoo so Im not sure this is a good time to learn it. What do you guys recommend?

Game pass games on Linux?

Afaik the only way to access game pass for PC games is through the Xbox app, which is a wrapper for MS Store which obviously isn't I'm Linux so I doubt it's possible.

But I did recently start dual booting Kubuntu and have seen significant performance increases in my compatible Steam games and have an ongoing game pass subscription so has anyone found a workaround or is it a lost cause?

No Audio with 4k TV connected

Hello I got a complicated problem.

I am trying to play games on my 4k tv with 5.1 surround sound.

I have my Linux Desktop running latest Garuda Linux (kernel 6.1.5) with an rx590 graphics card connected to a Denon AVR-S750H.

If I set my display resolution to 1080x1920 the audio works great, surround sound and display work fine. But if I set my display resolution to 3840x2160 then my audio no longer works but the display is fine.

I am using pipewire (0.3.64) by the way to handle my audio.

I will add edits below of any commands you guys want me to run.

KDE Plasma Wayland. Mouse stutter in the games menu, but not in game itself

Running Arch with KDE Plasma and Wayland. VRR enabled. The issue is with Elder Scrolls Online. On menus (character selection, screen, map, inventory etc.) the mouse movement is very stuttery. Seems like the mouse itself skips frames. During gameplay, the mouse is fine though. The issue isn't present under X11, but with X11 alt-tabbing crashes the game which under Wayland doesn't happen.

Problem with rebinding buttons and axes in xboxdrv

When rebinding buttons and axes in ui-buttonmap and ui-axismap, if I end up with a button/axis unbound it gets removed from the device entirely.

So as an example, A, B, X, and Y would be buttons 0, 1, 2, and 3, respectively
if I rebind A to, say, RB, and don't have any other buttons rebound to be A, the order changes
now B, X, and Y are 0, 1, and 2, respectively, so now all my buttons past A (and since A is 0, in this case that would be every button) are now bound incorrectly, and the same is true when remapping an axis.

Apex Legends: Anti-Cheat Error?

Hello everyone. I'm running plain Arch Linux, so im pretty sure I'm probably missing some package, but I installed Apex Legends through Steam with Steam Play set to Proton Experimental a few days ago. The game boots up and can play properly, but about a minute or two after launch, it kicks me out and gives me an error like "Client is not running anti-cheat".

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Again, I'm on plain Arch, not something like Majaro or Arco, so I'm willing to bet I'm missing something EAC needs to be recognized. Just assume I have nothing else in particular installed for this.

Thank you in advance!!!

Skyrim crashes on startup until I enter this command: PROTON_USE_WINED3D=1 %command%

Until a few days ago SKyrim modded was working fine but suddenly it crashes instantly but it's very curious because it only crashes when you go out to the open world, indoors it it doesn't crash. I have tried skyrim with absolutely no mods and it also happened.

But the moment I put that command in the launch parameters it works again as before. The problem apart from the lowering of frames by the command is that I'm in SteamDeck and when I go to gaming mode the game does not even open because it does not recognize the command.

Does anyone know what is happening and how can I fix it?

I have tried to do a clean install and verify the files through Steam.

Not gaming related, but I need some help...

I've been trying to run a piece of software that uses TurboActivate to validate application keys in Crossover. I've successfully installed the app and everything seems to work, but the activation screen gives me this error when I input my info:

Activation Error: There are network adapters on the system that are disabled and TuboActivate couldn't read their hardware properties (even after trying and failing to enable the adapters automatically. Enable the network adapters, re -run the function, and TurboActivate will be able to "remember" the adapters even if the adapters are disabled in the future.

I'm assuming this has to do with some Crossover network setting, but I have no clue.

Hogswart legacy will be SD verified

Hello again, David! We reached out to the Hogwarts Legacy team for you and were able to confirm that the game WILL be Steam Deck verified on launch. We hope this helps with your decision! Take care. Tweet

Did it get verified (will probably use anticheat) because Valve got involved, as the game will be played by tons people, or did the devs take initiative themselves? Either way this, like Elden Ring, is another good sign that going forward new games with anticheat will be more likely to support Deck.

Help configuring manual WINE prefix to use Nvidia DLSS

EDIT Now, in the process of typing all of this I suppose it served as a sort of a sanity check and its literally at this next step where I figured out where my problem was - there was no DLL override set for nvapi64.dll and as soon as I did this, I got DLSS to show up as an option.

Since I've spent all of this time typing all of this out, I'm just gonna go ahead and post it anyway so it can be indexed by a search engine and might be useful to someone else.


I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong, but clearly something isn't right and I'm just not seeing it.

As far as I can tell, all of the required components are in place but no matter what I try, I can't get DLSS to show up in games. Raytracing works without any issues, however. Here's what I've got to work with:

OS: Arch Linux

GPU: RTX 2080 Super, driver version 525.78

Game: Control Ultimate Edition from GOG

wine-tkg-valve - compiled with desired patches

dxvk-bin - installed via AUR - version 2.0

vkd3d-proton - installed via AUR - version 2.8

dxvk-nvapi - manual installation - version 0.6


Now, it should be noted that everything works via Proton (I also own the game on Steam).

Using what proton does as a reference, I am manually setting everything up because I prefer to do it this way whenever I can. I understand its not as convenient as using Steam/Proton, Lutris, Bottles, etc - but its just how I like to do things.

My manual prefix, as far as I can tell, contains everything that would be present in the aforementioned runners. The game launches fine and I can play the game in either dx11 or dx12 modes. When using dx12 I can setup and configure all settings except DLSS, which remains a greyed out box. Raytracing works without any issues.

I've copied the nvapi64.dll/nvapi.dll files to their respective system32/syswow64 directories in the prefix.

I've also copied the _nvngx.dll and nvngx.dll files from /usr/lib/nvidia/wine to the system32 directory as well.

Launch Variables Used:

DXVK_ENABLE_NVAPI=1

I've also created a dxvk.conf file next to Control.exe for good measure, with dxgi.nvapiHack = False -- even though this shouldn't be necessary with dxvk 2.0 with the above environment variable set.

I've made sure all of the DLL overrides are set to native, then builtin. dxvk, vkd3d-proton, etc. all have handy scripts which set overrides accordingly.

Any advice on what to do next?

Im in the process of buying a new laptop and huge fan of Linux (been on Nobara for the past year). Going back to Windows is a firm no.

That being said, Id love to support a company that believes in open-source and the Linux community. Im eyeing the Oryx Pro Advanced and wanted to know other peoples experience with their laptop after a year or so of use.

Is the hardware holding up? Any motherboard or graphics issues? Hows gaming?

Cyberpunk 2077 odd black visual artifacts on objects with DLSS

https://reddit.com/link/10a7eco/video/8ssyf15arnba1/player

Ive got an odd issue that I havent been able to find any answers on, or even seen other people have a similar issue. As you can see in the video (apologies for the low frame rate, OBS was having issues), on certain objects in CP77 (generally on buildings/roads, the issue is much more common in Night City than in the Badlands) will have a black kind of shimmering on certain surfaces, which usually happens for only a second or two. The effect will usually re-appear on the same surface, or at least in a similar area with a similar effect. I believe moving around makes it more prevalent, rather than staying still and simply looking around. The odd thing is that this is only an issue with DLSS, regardless of which mode it is set to (I generally stick to quality, but again, all modes are affected). With FSR or no up-scaling on, the effect goes away. This doesnt happen in any other games that I have DLSS on for, so it appears to be a Cyberpunk specific issue. This happens on all versions of Proton (that support DLSS), regardless of the Steam launch parameters. Changing the game's quality settings doesn't seem to have any effect (including ray-tracing), or at least any combination I've tried hasn't fixed it. Has anyone seen something similar and know where to find some information to fix it?

Specs/general information:

  • OS: Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 3070
  • Nvidia Driver Version: 525.60.11
  • DLSS: Quality Mode
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700
  • Proton Version: Experimental
  • Steam/Proton Launch arguments: None

Skyrim mods that require an exe?

Hello everyone. I'm giving Skyrim modding on Linux another chance, and so far everything is working perfectly find. I installed it using RocketBacon's MO2 script on plain Arch (KDE), and everything went perfectly fine after installing ProtonTricks and setting Skyrim to use a specific version of proton. SKSE works fine after manually updating it. MO2 works fine and handles nexus links just fine. ENB runs magnificently. Im not getting any stuttering or framerate issues. This is about as close to JustWorks as I've ever gotten. There is just one problem.

Some mods require you to run an exe to generate specific files pertaining to custom character animations, like FNIS, Nemesis Engine, and BodySlide. I can install those like regular mods, but when I try to load the exe into MO2 directly, they dont open at all. I can open them from Dolphin File Manager with Wine, and they'll open just fine, but they'll say something like "Skyrim Data Folder Not Found".

I have a hunch that they might work if I install them the old ways (directly to the Skyrim directory, not through MO2 since that installs mods on a separate directory), and just run it from there using Wine directly, but I wanted to ask if anyone here found a better solution to this?

Yes I have Skyrim and MO2 installed under the same partition (the "Z-drive"). No I will not install an alternative mod that doesn't need exe generators, the whole point of this is to have my custom CBBE adult mods, I'd rather go back to Windows.

Any input is appreciated! I might even post a full tutorial video on YouTube if I figure this out.

Can 120hz instead of 144hz improve performance?

Would it be correct or incorrect to assume that dropping my monitor down from 144hz to 120hz would use less power/resources?

I recently upgraded my GPU but it turns out my CPU is too slow for it so it doesn't benefit me much, kinda sucks. Would using 120hz "help"? Does the system use more power / resources for 144? Can you even tell the difference?

I've heard it said here that using different refresh rates leads to different results power/resource wise, I'm trying to find which is ideal for my RX6600 / Rysen 5 2600

Problems only with Steam?

Ive been using Arch for years, and gaming has been smooth. Lutris has been awesome, and all my games are from GOG. I dont like DRM, but recently I wanted to play Fallout 4, and Total War. Also I will need Steam when Starfield releases, so I figured its time to install Steam. And this has been the most frustrating experience Ive had using Linux. My PS5 controller works with wine by default, it just emulates an Xbox controller, and all my games work with it. I never had to install anything. Steam on the other hand detects it correctly, but refuses to emulate an Xbox controller. I went into general controller setting and enabled PlayStation support, and I enabled Steam input on Fallout 4. It still doesnt work. It worked flawlessly on Steam when I was on Windows years ago, and I dont know what changed. Also Fallout 4 will launch and play fine once, If I quit and start it again later it closes itself after intro. The only solution is to restart my PC. Also Medieval 2 Total War doesnt work at all. Not the Linux version or the Windows version through Proton. It closes when i hit new campaign or when I go into video options. I have over 50 games on GOG and they all work flawlessly through Lutris. So I dont think its a problem with my system, but I also know so many of you have no issues with Steam so Im kinda stumped. AMD 3600X CPU AMD 5700XT GPU 16GB 3000MHZ Ram latest version of Arch, and using XFCE. Also sorry if Its hard to read. I typed this on a phone, and Im at work so I wont be able to do anything until I get home thanks in advanced.

I cant get my 8BitDo Ultimate controller to work.

How the heck do i get this thing to work on linux. Reading through the comments on this sub, everyone is saying how easy it is, but im still not able to connect it to my pc. First, i tried linux mint... the 8BitDo Ultimate doesnt work via 2.4Ghz (it appears in steam controller setting as a nintendo switch controller for like 2 seconds and then it just disapears and reapears indefinetly) it also doesnt work wired, and not even over bluetooth (the controller tries to connect over bluetooth but then mint spits out some error message). My 8BitDo Pro 2 is the same story, the only difference being that it worked wired... once and now it doesnt connect via a cable anymore. So i tried switching to pop os... on pop os both of the controllers connect just fine in the bluetooth settings but steam doesnt recognize them at all. 2.4Ghz and wired didnt work at all on pop os. So i switched back to linux mint and now the controllers dont even appear in the bluetooth menu. I tried updating the firmware on both of the controllers, i tried different cables and bluetooth dongles, but still no luck connecting them. Does anyone here have any tips on how to fix this?

Two Worlds gaming on Steam

For childhood nostalgics ;D

Instruction:

  1. Go to the library with games and choose the game Two Worlds.
  2. Right-click on the context menu and select the "Properties" menu.
  3. Go to the "BETAS" tab and enter the beta test password.
  4. On the same tab, select the desired branch.
  5. Wait for the update and play.

For Linux users:Branch: linuxbetaPassword: TW1LinuxBETA

Write in the launch option vblank_mode=3 %command% to activate vertical refresh and CoreCtrl to adjust your CPU or GPU performance, for me the GPU always ran 100% no matter what I did.
I have a R9 380x 4G in CoreCtrl I created Two Worlds profile and set core 829MHz, Memory 700MHz and Power limit 80Watt, in game I have no more than 50C before I had 70C to 95C and 200-500fps.

GPU Passtrough/Multi GPU system. HW accelerated VM's.

I'm upgrading my PC and I'm not interested in buying Windows 11 license so I'm planning to go Linux since most of the games I play already support it. I bought i9-13900K and I have RTX 3070.

I need to also run virtual machines with GPU acceleration for other programs. Last time I tried GPU passthrough ~5 years ago it required two GPU's. I've ran Manjaro for years on my work PC and +15 years Ubuntu servers so I'm pretty familiar with Linux. I'll have 500GB NVME for dual booting Windows just in case I need it.

I have 4 high resolution displays, one of them is the ultrawide I game on others I need for programming. Should I buy another GPU, thinking of Intel Arc A380, so I could run 3 displays off it and run ultrawide with RTX 3070? I could also connect both GPU's to my main ultrawide display and just switch input if needed while still running the 3 other displays off the Arc. AV1 is also of interest for me.

What would be most convenient setup for running GPU accelerated QEMU+KVM Windows 10 VM? Do I need second GPU? Is iGPU of i9 any use for virtual machines? Is Arc support in 6.2 Kernel stable/usable? Any resources you could share on would be appreciated thank you!

Hi, me again, a slightly different issue with a VKB joystick

I have a pair of them. One is the latest nxt premium right, which shows up perfectly fine, no need for the virtual joystick/HID that they can setup.

The other is the same, other than it's the Left hand model. I'm thinking this may be playing a part, in how the buttons are organized.

With the left, in the configuration, it's counting 4 pov's as buttons, taking up space within the 32, even though they don't show up that way in anything I'm testing. They show up as axes, even when switching modes, it just changes to a different pair of axes. Because of the placement, 3 of the buttons are pushed out of the magical 32 that can be seen on a controller in games like Elite Dangerous.

Using my wife's pc to use their configuration, it creates the necessary virtual/logical controller, and the 3 extra buttons(2 x speed trigger buttons, and center push on the grey side hat if it matters). Those 3 buttons show up there.

But when plugging it into my pc, only the main one is showing up.

How to get 4K@120Hz to work over HDMI (AMD Radeon RX 6800XT)?

Hi,

I'm having trouble getting 4K to work at 120Hz over HDMI when my Radeon RX 6800XT is connected to my TV (Philips 55PUS9206). I tried a few "Ultra High Speed HDMI" (HDMI 2.1) certified cables before realizing that AMD is unlikely to enable the feature in the FOSS driver due to some legal issues. It's really difficult to get more information on this subject.

However, since the issue should only affect the FOSS driver, I'm wondering if the proprietary driver will work. Does anyone have experience with it?

For the record, I know Displayport will work, but my TV doesn't have a DP input. The only DP->HDMI adapter that should work is the "Uptab Displayport 1.4 to HDMI 2.1 8K 60Hz or 4K 120Hz HDR Active Aadapter". Unfortunately, VRR isn't supported and it's a bit pricey.

Thanks in advance :-)

Thinking about buying a new laptop. Or maybe not.

Hello, Linux Gaming.

I have been thinking about buying a new laptop recently. My current one has a Nvidia GTX 1050, a Ryzen 5 2500U, 16 GB Ram and a 512 GB SSD. It serves me well: I don't usually play AAA titles (the latest I played was a FarCry 5), as I prefer indie games. I also do art as a hobby and Blender and Krita runs well enough (as long as I don't build any complex scenes in Blender).

The problem is: Win11 doesn't support my CPU (crazy, right?) and Win10 support will end in 2025.
In the Linux side of things, Nvidia still not giving a damn about Wayland, so I am stuck using X.Org (which I come to understand, it is falling apart already as it is pretty old).

My plan is to sell my current laptop I buy a new one, probably choosing between an AMD Vega (8 or 10) Graphics or an Intel Iris, as I can't find any laptop with an AMD discrete graphics card.

Therefore I ask you guys:

a) If I choose an iGPU, from those I mentioned above, instead a Nvidia dGPU will be that bad of an idea? Is a 1050, even being older that those, still better than them?

b) Is X.Org that bad? This alone is making me think of ditching Nvidia for an iGPU, as I feel it is holding me back! (For example, with an iGPU I would be able to use both Linux and Win11 if I wanted!). For example, if I use X.Org in a Gnome environment, I can kiss all my 2d games goodbye as the tearing becomes extreme.

c) This is not about gaming, but does graphics tablets works under Wayland? I heard people complaining that they don't...

Thanks in advance!

Setting game fps/refresh rate per application?

I've attempted to try and search this out on Google, but unfortunately didn't come up with too much. The game in question is Deponia: The Complete Journey. If you run higher than 60hz refresh rate on the game, the inventory becomes hard to manage, taking several clicks to pick up an item.

I've already tried running the game with different proton runners and setting the DXVK framerate to 60 in the Steam launch commands. There were no results. Even setting it to 30, I could see it just wasn't working. Another way I found was to use the Nvidia Server Settings, but it's unlike anything I've ever seen. On Windows, I'd just use Nvidia Inspector to fix it.

The game itself works natively on Linux through Steam. I'm fairly new to Linux and currently running Manjaro KDE. I looked at the profile settings on the Nvidia X Server app, but rather than mess with it and break something, I figured I'd ask people that have more knowledge about something like this first.

Enter the Dungeon and controller support

I'm having a really weird issue with the game. It simply does not recognize my controllers in any way.

I've tried both with a Dualsense and a DS4, and the results are similar. The controller is detected and I can select them in configs, but input detection is very weird. It only detects buttons when I'm moving the controller (possibly because of sensor inputs). Shaking the controller also causes the game to press up/down buttons as well.

I've tried emulating a X360 controller, using and disabling steam input and everything. I have no idea of what to do. Anyone had similar issues?

7.1 surround obviously works on my system. I play my own tf fork with the darkplaces engine on arch at the moment and there the eight channels work fine, but in wine I can only set it to 5.1.

Did I do something wrong or is this just how things are at the moment?

Tried following a solution here: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=389134 and X11 is now busted and won't detect GPU.

Kubuntu: Live media wouldn't boot.

Manjaro: Live media boots but all displays tear and flicker with no cursor.

I'm hearing OpenSuse Tumbleweed, Nobara, and Garuda are handling the hardware ok, but I'm not sure which of the three would be the best or if there's something even better than those 3. Thoughts?

Guild Wars 2 - Which version ?

Hi,

I'm planning to switch my gaming laptop to Fedora Linux to try the OS a little more. This week, Ibstarted Guild Wars 2 on my Windows 10 desktop and I enjo it !

My questions are :

Does the Lutris version (and similar software) launch the Steam version or the "official" one ? ( Similar to W10 where you can install steam or through the website with their launcher)

If these versions are not the same : Where is the best place to install/play GW2 ? Lutris, Steam etc... ?

Thanks and have a nice day !

Change game icon in dock? (macOS)

I'm running Thief Gold in a new wineskin wrapper on a M1 MBP -- when I start the game by clicking the icon in Finder it runs, but instead of 'Thief Gold' it shows as 'wine64-preloader' in the dock and has a different icon.

I already tried changing the icon for 'wine64-preloader' by tracking it down in Wineskin > Thief Gold > Contents > SharedSupport > wine > bin in typical macOS fashion (Get Info > change icon in upper left), but that doesn't change anything in the dock when I run the game. Also tried changing the icon in Wineskin Advanced settings but no change to the actual dock icon that pops up when running.

Is there a way to change the icon for this? I know it's nitpicky, but I'm a perfectionist Mac user ffs.

Warlander upcoming free to play action hack 'n slash MMO. Linux/Steamdeck support, community help needed!

Warlander this upcoming free to play action hack 'n slash MMO would need some love from the Linux community to prove dev's that we are plenty. Currently problem seems to be the Sentry Anti-Cheat that's just popping a black box on startup.

Earlier developer stated on steam forums that they would have a look into it if there would be enough support for it.

We currently have no plans for Linux support, but if there's enough support for it we'll look into it. So please go upvote the suggestion here: https://warlander.featureupvote.com/suggestions/328833/feature-linux-support

No registration needed for the vote, so go for it!

Does anyone have experience using dual VKB joysticks?

I'm on Arch, playing Elite Dangerous through proton.

I've disabled steam controller support.

The right stick has worked flawlessly with my twcs throttle for the past few weeks, and the left stick came in. For some reason, the left is being picked up by Elite(at least) as an xbox controller, and the inputs are all over the place. The Z twist one direction isn't picked up at all, the other is picked up as one of the triggers. Half the buttons don't register since this has at least that many more than a gamepad on it's own.

This is what I get from dmesg:

Old Windows CD-ROM games on Linux?

Hey everyone! I finally did it, made the move to Linux and I love it. It might be luck, but so far I haven't encountered problems that could not be solved.

As per the title, I'm wondering if it's possible to use old games that I still have the CD-ROM for on Linux. For example, I have the original version of Baldur's Gate 2 and I would like to go through it again. My guess is that I could probably try to get it working through Wine, but I have no idea how how to do it or where to start. Any recommendations for a tutorial or instructions? My Google Du is not giving me much information, I'm probably not searching properly.

Any tip is welcome. Thanks!

Any way to kill the connections to Unreal Tournament 2004 master servers once they are down?

i don't know if Epic mentioned they will push an update after the UT2K4 master server shutdown has happened but does anyone know how we can turn off the connections to them once they do if Epic will not?
No point in seeing them in my firewall logs after if they will never be up again. I tested it out and when i block them it just says "The UT2004 master server could not be reached. Please try again later." (which will never be because Epic is garbage and doesn't care about killing UT) however the address ut2004master1.epicgames.com ut2004master2.epicgames.com will spam my firewall for no reason after the shutdown.
I already tried asking on the unreal tournament sub but my account is too new so it got autoremoved.
Thx

Why is there no option for wine to have case folding?

I know that there is a case folding option for ext4. Why is it not possible to do the same thing just for wine - but on any file system?

Wouldn't that be pretty easy to implement? From what I understand, when a windows program does file operations, they go to wine, and wine translates them to Linux file operations. From what I see, it should be possible to convert everything to lower case, and the thing is done, right?

crashing steam games on linux mint with RX 7900 XTX

inxi -Fxz and crash log: https://pastebin.com/weuxKtKM

I just got my new gpu and have been spending days trying to figure out how to get games running.

What's weird is that it was crashing differently before I installed a mesa update? (unsure if this is what changed but I think it was.) I didn't save the full crash logs from before but it seemed to be unable to access the 32 bit drivers from what I was reading (which seemed to be installed correctly, but obviously i could be missing something), and from my google history the logs included:

err:kerberos:kerberos_LsaApInitializePackage no Kerberos support, expect problems
err:winediag:X11DRV_WineGL_InitOpenglInfo Direct rendering is disabled, most likely your OpenGL drivers haven't been installed correctly

This was with proton-ge, it was giving me yet other errors before i tried proton-ge, now it is giving me similar looking error messages whatever proton version i try:

16739.297:0060:006c:trace:seh:dispatch_exception code=6ba flags=0 addr=000000007B01260E ip=000000007B01260E tid=006c
16739.297:0060:006c:warn:seh:dispatch_exception unknown exception (code=6ba) raised

I have primarily been trying to launch cyberpunk but this behavior exists for a couple of the games I have tried.

Any help is appreciated

StarCraft 2 not selecting correct GPU

Running Battle.Net with prime-run wine64 failed entirely, only the integrated version works. Putting "__NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia" into the "additional command line arguments" in the launcher also failed to force it. The game refuses to run through wine, only the launcher works. Lutris on my installation (Garuda Linux) doesn't do anything at all. What is going on? What do I do?

NVK driver successfully runs vkQuake (poorly)

It's really slow and the rendering is not correct. All level geometry is missing, with only enemies and items visible. But it runs.

Any Nvidia GPU Maxwell and up should work. Older kernels work but 6.2 is recommended as it has stability fixes to Nouveau.

NFS:Heat worked fine yesterday , yet not today

Hi,
I rebooted my Debian desktop today and cant seem to get NFS heat to launch , I press play , it starts, and then just nothing happens and the game stops running on steam. Proton 7.0.5 by the way. I presume its due to EA just not launching.

I tried running steam through the command line and got this :

Conspiracy Theory Time: Microsoft is planning a ultimatum for Open Source APIs

I'm kind of paranoid about Microsoft's new Dozen driver which is a layer driver that translates Vulkan calls and Spirv-v shaders into D3D12 calls and DXIL shaders. Continuing, we all know that microsoft always does something thinking about profiting and exterminating competitors, so there is something quite strange, which is microsoft's investment in implementing layer drivers for directX12, both CLon12 and the Gallium Driver D3D12 that translates opengl to D3D12, that it may seem normal until then because they are old APIs, but now implementing modern APIs like Vulkan on top of DirectX12 is very strange, both are modern APIs and Vulkan has native support for linux and that's where my conspiracy theory comes in, microsoft has invested in tests with closed systems without support for installation outside the Microsoft Store, like Windows 10 S, and apparently this was just the beginning, I believe that microsoft wants to close the siege in the next windows and make like Apple just accept an API preventing competition in the case of Apple is Metal, in the case of the next windows it would be D3D12 that in itself is already scary if microsoft in its next windows or ed low-cost option removing support for vulkan and other APIs this may lessen the incentive for games to implement Vulkan by default, as just having D3D12 many devs would have no reason to invest in Vulkan, as vulkan drivers would just be vulkan drivers layer that will certainly decrease performance and further abstract access to hardware, in addition to every layer driver has its limitations, microsoft has added in some documentation including Mesa3D the assumption of modern platforms that only support D3D12 that by itself it's already very strange, finally I leave the conspiracy in the air

Anyone else having trouble with Roblox lately?

My kid wanted Roblox for Xmas, so I installed it on both of our laptops, both running Mint 20.3. When I installed it, I set up accounts for us both and made sure that everything worked properly.

Since Xmas though, I can't access either of our profiles through the app. Both have the same issue, where the profile page seems to open, but is just white and non responsive. Eventually Roblox crashes.

I can access both profiles through Chrome, and everything else seems to be working ok, but it's a bit jarring to get a crash if we forget to not click the profile button.

We're using the Flatpak that should have everything set up ready, but I've tried a manual installation too with the same issue.

Any ideas please?

Lets say you play a game that saves data(replays) to the proton prefix. Is there a way to recover the data lost when the version of proton you use for that game is updated. Or do I need to write a cron job to back up everything. I can give some examples if the above is not clear.

How do I run old school runescape on arch based systems?

I am running manjaro and want to play osrs. On ubuntu there was a functional snap package, there is supposed to be an aur https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/osrs-launcher, which the documentation wants me to use but it says

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: Option UseConcMarkSweepGC was deprecated in version 9.0 and will likely be removed in a future release. 

Unrecognized VM option 'UseParNewGC' Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine. Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

I tried installing java 8, but it refused to run it with anything except java 17 or 11. I ran just by typing out the name (osrs-launcher).

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Dualsense Support w/Gyro

Hello,

I am currently using Wine through CrossOver to run Steam on my M1 Max. I was able to get Steam's controller configurator, big picture mode, library, etc. all working after troubleshooting it for days! Was very excited to get it working and booting into some games, e.g., Gunfire Reborn. However, where I was quickly deflated was realizing my Dualsense controller, while being recognized as a Dualsense controller on Steam in CrossOver, doesn't support Gyro. Does anyone know about any workarounds to this issue? Not being able to use my Steam-input custom configurations pretty much kills Mac gaming for me, so I hope there is a solution to this issue.

How to get Minecraft running on pure Wayland?

Recently I stumbled across a post that mentioned running Minecraft (Java Edition) on pure Wayland without the need of XWayland. I know that this is only supposed to work for version newer than 1.13 which is not an issue for me. Also Minecraft is the last puzzle piece of my system that requires XWayland.

Specs:

Graphics Driver: amdgpu

Launcher: Prismlauncher (fork of PolyMC which is a fork of MultiMC)

Distro: Gentoo

Compositor: Hyprland (wlroots-based)

Mesa-version: 22.2.5

Java-version: 17

  • While doing research, I found this article that mentions a mod that should make Minecraft work with Wayland, but the link doesn't work anymore.
  • Also I found this project (that belongs to the same person who wrote the article mentioned above, so I assume this is an updated version with a different name). I followed the steps for my Distribution (Gentoo) but it still doesn't launch (without XWayland that is).

There are 2 things in the logs that might hint on the issue, but putting them into google doesn't bring up any results that are even remotly related to my issue.

  • Backend library: LWJGL version 3.3.1 build 7 missing software! (we will try basic console input)
  • GLFW error 65548: Wayland: The platform does not support setting the input focus

Migrated to Linux Mint 21.1 and Games are running better, how is it possible?

Hi, I recently migrated from Windows 10 to Linux Mint 21.1 just to see how linux is going in terms of usability and games performance. Since 2007 I have been doing this periodically because I always like the linux idea and all.

My main gaming platform is Steam and I already knew that online games that uses anticheat like PUBG would not work and thats ok.

But what surprised me the most was how the performance, in terms of FPS and loading times, was superior in Mint.

I have tested the same games I played on Windows and here are a few things I noticed:

  1. Setting the games graphics quality to the highest possible did not seem to affect the FPS at all. Considering that when I entered the games, the FPS were already high (100 to 140 fps). It felt like my system was being able to run the same games on ultra quality;
  2. Even on full screen, I was able to multitask between other things in my computer without any freezing and slowness in the transition that I used to perceive in Windows;
  3. I could open games at the same time and performance would be consistent. To affect the FPS counter I had to open 4 games at the same time. Yeah, I really stress tested the system;
  4. Proton was able to run all the Windows exclusive games with equal or superior performance. That made no sense to me, because Windows native games should run better on windows, no?

My system is:

  • processor: i7 6700k 4ghz
  • graphics card: Nvidea GTX 1660 Super
  • RAM Memory: 16 GB
  • 960 SSD KINGSTON

Can someone explain me what is happening? Because I am really suprised, in a positive way.

GPU upgrade has me wary

Been using this RX580 4GB since 2017. Has worked phenomenally up until recently, it's starting to show its age in newer games. Just bought an RX6500XT on sale. Was very pleased to see that I didn't have to reinstall Arch, I just plugged the new one in and it simply worked. Driver comes from either Mesa's amdgpu or the kernel. But with new hardware comes new worries about wether or not I'm going to be missing out on the full potential of this card. I already know Freesync support and mostly plug & play features would be right there on Windows but I have no intentions on going back, I recall having frustrating issues where the AMD Radeon software caused input lag and had a bug where the software simply wouldn't open after Windows updates. I went through the roller coaster of reconsidering Windows along with this new card because "I only game on this PC I just want it to work" but being reminded of all those issues, I will steer clear even if that means a little less performance. TLDR I'm a penguin.

Anyway I'm already sacrificing some performance on my end by using GNOME Wayland and not having VRR support, so before I get settled with this thing is there a way I can assure that it is running as it should, like a test to compare or something? So far I've only tried TF2 and Guild Wars 2 and they run great but still I am wary that as an Arch user, and having installed manually, there's something I could have missed over time being out-of-the-loop about graphics/performance stuff. The AMD Radeon software on Windows may have been buggy and a latency-hog, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't have some great QOL features like image sharpening frame boosting/limiting technologies antilag PROPER Freesync enabling, and so on. Caused some input latency but made the game appear very very smooth like water and crisp, an effect that's hard to replicate on Linux despite being able to achieve higher framerates sometimes. And I have tried Plasma's Wayland VRR and GNOME xorg VRR, they do not look nearly as smooth as they should, so for Linux I just turn it off, especially for GNOME Wayland. Another sacrifice I'm willing to live with for being a penguin.

DisplayLink monitor vs Ubuntu 22.04

I got a portable monitor with the specs:

  • Brand: Asus
  • Model: ZenScreen MB-165B
  • Port: USB-C

And I have a laptop with the specs (please let me know if more info is needed):

  • Brand: Lenovo
  • Model: Ideapad Y700-14ISK
  • OS: dual boot (Ubuntu 22.04 / Windows 10)
  • Graphic card: AMD Radeon

The monitor works fine with Windows 10 after I install the drivers. With the Ubuntu, however, things do not work. I tried installing the driver suggested by ASUS specific for this model, the most recent official Display Link driver, and the community script. All have give the same result: installation is said to be successful and asks me to reboot. I reboot and connect the screen. Screen turns on and keeps black. No display is detected. In Additional Drivers there is no drivers listed.

Some places ask to check if the monitor is a DisplayLink one using the command:

$ lsusb -d 17e9

When I use it, I get a generic message as there was no DisplayLink driver connected:

Usage: lsusb [options]...
List USB devices
  -v, --verbose
      Increase verbosity (show descriptors)
  -s [[bus]:][devnum]

  -V, --version
      Show version of program

But when I do a simple listing with $ lsusb, I get to see the device listed and detected in the 4th line:

So is my monitor recognized as a DisplayLink one or not?

Any advice?

Laptop overheats with older games

Basically the tittle: I have a Dell Inspiron 3505 (AMD Athlon Silver 3050u with Raven2 graphics and 8gb of ram + ssd and hdd) with Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS

I'm not really sure since I'm still learning new things but everytime I try to play an old game like Geneforge, SimCity 4, Fallout 2 through Wine or some others like Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds on Steam with Proton-GE, my laptop goes straight up to 70/80 or in some cases 90C. I'm really worried about that. Already have tried updating video drivers, cleaning the dust and changing the thermal paste, but nothing does much.

The thing is other recent games run better than those old ones, even some 3D ones; so I would like to know what's wrong here. Any ideas?

Steam library folder is non executable when trying to set up btrfs drive as a shared game library

I just purchased a 2tb ssd to be the shared steam drive between my nobara and win10 installs. Formatted it to btrfs as was suggested by someone else on here and set up winbtrfs on linux. Then populated the drive vis windows.

When i switch to nobara and try to set up a steam drive in settings it says Steam library folder not executable anyone know how to change this?

Ive tried taking ownership via gnome disks, ive tried editing mount options to make it always mount as my account being the owner, but no dice. Any help would be appreciated.

DS3 analog triggers not working under Wine/Proton

Hello! It seems that my DS3's analog trigger aren't being detected as analog, it only functions as digital buttons (on/off). So far I have tested this with GTAV only, where I first noticed that I can't accelerate cars smoothly.

From what I understand Wine uses SDL to kinda emulate XInput, so I did set this in /etc/environment: SDL_GAMECONTROLLERCONFIG=050000004c05000068020000008000001356616,PS3 Controller,platform:Linux,a:b0,b:b1,x:b3,y:b2,back:b8,start:b9,guide:b10,leftshoulder:b4,rightshoulder:b5,leftstick:b11,rightstick:b12,leftx:a0,lefty:a1,rightx:a3,righty:a4,lefttrigger:b6,righttrigger:b7,dpup:b13,dpleft:b15,dpdown:b14,dpright:b16

I had checked this with SDL Gamepad Tool, and I've verified that the analog triggers works there (tried to push it gradually and it registers the input). But games still behave as if it is digital.

I've also tried xboxdrv, which works, but it's not exactly native. Anybody got some ideas? Thanks!

Armello doesn't launch anymore - Steam, Ubuntu 22.10

I'm playing Armello through Steam on Ubuntu 22.10. Until a few days ago, it used to run without any issue.

Since a few days, the game won't launch anymore. I get a black screen with a pointer instead and nothing happens. It happened a few times before, but it always worked again after a reboot. Not anymore, it happened every time I tried.

I uninstalled and installed the game again, checked the game data integrity with Steam and found no issue, I can access Steam Cloud without any problem, and I get no error messages at any point...

Anyone else has the same problem ? Do you know what could cause this and how I can fix it ?

[Tech Support] Diablo 2/D2DX Failing Due to DX11?

Hey all, this one's a doozy so I'm gonna dump as much as I can in here.

I'm on an ASUS g512lws, 2070S, 10700H. I was running Pop! OS until a couple days ago, when I switched to Endeavour.

I installed asus-linux and xanmod-rog kernel, then migrated my lutris library over. Most of my older games, including D2, were trashed. Everything else runs perfectly, even better than before. (Fixed stuttering in GoW, too)

Previously I had a bunch of issues in Pop! getting Median XL to work, let alone installing Diablo 2, so I got the battle.net installers off a windows PC and manually installed them through Lutris, then copied in Median XL, then D2DX. I set the Windows version for all the game's .exe files to 7, and the game ran perfectly after that, 60fps, AA, all that.

I first tried to install D2 in Endeavour by using the median XL script in Lutris, like I did in PoP! os. That actually seemed to work okay until I tried adding in D2DX.

I got errors mentioned in the following three github issues for D2DX:

https://github.com/bolrog/d2dx/issues/180

https://github.com/bolrog/d2dx/issues/112

I checked my config file and made sure it was `d2dx.cfg` but to no avail. It's definitely named correctly.

This error seemed to indicate to me it was an issue with DX11, somehow, as my machine actually referenced line `187` instead of `183` of this file:https://github.com/bolrog/d2dx/blob/main/src/d2dx/RenderContext.cpp

https://github.com/bolrog/d2dx/issues/152

I screwed with this one for a while. With `nocompatmodefix` enabled, I tried enabling AND disabling vsync with the Windows version in wine set to XP, 7, and 10. Didn't help.

After this I gave up and tried installing manually, like I described above in my working method for pop. That also caused the same issues. I also tried a few different wine versions, including GE-7.34 which I usually run, Lutris WINE, my system WINE, and proton on a lark. No specific runner seemed to help.

I then did it once more, updated through bnet, and added Sven's glide instead, no median. It sorta works but the menus are all screwed up and I have to alt-tab each time I enter/exit the main menu, so twice just to get in-game.

Alright, so I gave up once more. This finally did it.

I used the Median XL script from Lutris and installed. This time, I skipped installing the windows launcher entirely. It kicked back the, "Cannot create string longer than 0xfffff characters" error.

The linux launcher had a host of other issues, so I never use it normally - BUT, it did patch the game and allow it to work. FINALLY.

Can anyone suggest a better install method? I know I'm gonna have to do this shit again eventually.
I think it might be an interesting idea to try a manual installation and script that out.

Decided to run the Cyberpunk 2077 bench on various popular distros, here are some results + thoughts

So I decided to make the jump back to Linux from Windows 11, after getting tired of Windows being so... Windows. Before making the jump to my distro of choice (Manjaro) I decided to use my set-up to quickly install and run the bench I usually use to see how things stacked up between distros. The results of my little experiment surprised me, and not in the way I expected! But before that...

Disclaimer 1: While I have a Ryzen 9 5950X/64GB DDR4@3200/3060TI, do not expect my performance to match "real-world" performance in Cyberpunk on similar set-ups (especially GPU-wise). I run an unRAID server which serves two different VMs and my Gaming/Linux VM runs 8C/16T on on CCD paired with 32GB of RAM. While all of that is more than enough to run pretty much anything I want, there is a performance penalty to running VMs, especially if you want to dodge all the shady anti-VMs anti-cheats. As it stands with almost two years of experience in this and all my cherry-picked XML optimizations, performance is around 85-90% of what "bare-metal" (as in, not in a VM) would be. So if frame-rate seems a bit off by 3060TI standards, that's why.

Disclaimer 2: This is not a "this distro is better than that one" thread nor to I want to fuel that kind of discourse. This was just a fun little experiment I did for myself, and decided to share with you guys. This is far from scientific and is just one man's crazy idea of afternoon fun.

-------------------------------

Distros Chosen

-------------------------------

The distros I installed and ran the game in were:

- Ubuntu 22.10

- Manjaro KDE 22.0

- Garuda Dragonized 221019

- PopOS! 22.04

- Linux Mint 22.1 Cinnamon

Three other distros didn't qualify for different reasons which I will list below:

HoloISO (Unofficial SteamOS): Didn't boot, likely because I have nVidia hardware.

MXLinux: Didn't like the partition setup I configured and didn't even install GRUB. Likely a fuck-up on my side, but in a world where distros (especially Arch-Based) are so easy to install and set-up with manual partitioning, it made me just say fuck it. I really wanted to keep my second partition so I didn't have to reinstall Cyberpunk every time.

EndeavourOS: Love the look, love the installer, had no default GUI package manager installed. So I didn't even bother past that point as my time was limited anyway.

-------------------------------

Graphical Settings + Other

-------------------------------

The game was repeatedly bench-marked at 1440p on a 144hz panel. The settings I used can be found here and are basically the optimized defaults that most people base their own settings on, depending on resolution.

All benches were run on ProtonGE 7.43 with DLSS Quality enabled as well (Thanks Valve!).

All Distros were running X11 rather than Wayland (to the best of my knowledge).

And now for the results, with a small summary of my experience using each distro, from my own thoughts as I spoke these things to a friend who was amazing enough to put up with me the entire time.

-------------------------------

Manjaro 22.0 KDE

-------------------------------

https://i.vgy.me/OFndzE.png

Summary: Manjaro is my distro of choice and despite the game having among the lowest FPS of the bunch, it wasn't a significant enough difference to make me rethink which one I was gonna end up using.

-------------------------------

Garuda Dragonized 221019

-------------------------------

https://i.vgy.me/N5gYFX.png

Summary: For all the buzz I see online, I expected Garuda to be the best of the bunch at gaming. It wasn't at all. The user experience was very similar to Manjaro (as they are both Arch-based) but it's a bit too gaudy for my liking :p It was also the only one of the distros in which I had to restart for Steam to start up. Weird. Also this was the only one where Cyberpunk crashed on alt-tabbing.

-------------------------------

PopOS! 22.04

-------------------------------

https://i.vgy.me/KWHFZP.jpg

Summary: Despite not being too hot on the restrictions and UX of Pop, I can't deny it was the best on in terms of average FPS by around 3FPS depending on the distro. This is also where I first experienced a quirk that would affect my experience with all Debian-based distros I tested: flatpak downloads taking forever. However, Pop wasn't the worst in this regard, and it does looks sleek as hell. It was also the only distro where I couldn't manage to properly take a screenshot and had to rely on Steam for that purpose.

-------------------------------

Linux Mint 22.1 Cinnamon

-------------------------------

https://i.vgy.me/i1Z6oK.png

Summary: Mint was my first real Linux distro of choice way back, but I can't say I like it too much now. It's aping Windows in many things, and that's exactly what I'm trying to get away from. However, I was very pleased to see it ran just as well as any other of the distros I tested up to that point! This was the point where I realized that for the most part, they all perform mostly on par with each other. Flatpak downloads here were also slow, but acceptable. I just watched some videos on Youtube while this finished. Was the only distro that didn't install nVidia by default as well.

-------------------------------

Ubuntu 22.10

-------------------------------

https://i.vgy.me/y2lovq.png

Summary: I have not used Ubuntu since it changed to Unity back around 2010-2011 since I did not like the look or UX of it, and so this was my return to it after a long time. My UX was fine but flatpaks took so long to install that I literally picked up my Steam Deck and decided to grind in Fate Grand/Order as I waited for it to finish. But it did eventually finish and I was positively surprised to see it was one of the better performers in the list! right up there with Pop_OS.

-------------------------------

Conclusion

-------------------------------

TL;DR here are the results from best to worst:

  1. Pop_OS with 88.42 FPS
  2. Ubuntu with 88.15 FPS
  3. Manjaro KDE with 85.63 FPS
  4. Linux Mint with 85.21 FPS
  5. Garuda Linux with 85.11 FPS

I was very happy to see that within a margin, all distros perform about as well as each other. While I didn't test stuff like latency and such, I'm still stoked to see that all distros can game about as well as each other. This pretty much means that your choice of Distro is all up to your personal taste rather than any other technical aspects that could hold your experience back. It's really a good time for Linux Gaming right now, and hopefully the momentum will keep building up!

I can't hide the fact I was surprised by how poorly Garuda ranked since it's the one that supposedly more optimized for performance and even having a gaming-branded ISO. I also would have liked to test more, but honestly I only have so much time and was doing this for fun.

Hopefully this was as interesting for you to look at as it was for me to do, and I wish you all a great year! Thanks for your time :)

Getting started with ALVR on Linux

I wanted to post this since I haven't seen much on how to get started. My setup is PopOS, with Steam, and Nvidia GTX 1080.

I haven't seen prebuilt packages, so head over to github and download the source. Just make a ~/src directory and do a git clone.

Once you have the source, go into ALVR/packaging and there's a script that will set things up for you called alvr_build_linux.sh. There are options for building the client and the server,I chose to do only the server since I was downloading the client from SideQuest. I ran ./alvr_build_linux.sh server and it'll take a few minutes to run. While that's going, on your Quest, install the nightly version from the SideQuest store. It has to be the nightly version or you'll get protocol version mismatches.

When the build is complete, you will have a deb image in ALVR/build, mine was called alvr_20.0.0-dev03.deb. You should be able to do a git fetch to update your repository. I would do a ./alvr_build_linux.sh clobber to clean the sources before rebuilding.

There are a few limitations from what I can see:

  • Sound doesn't seem to pass through. This is OK for me, since I use Bluetooth ear buds so it's a non issue.
  • Video quality is not the best, but it's decent. When you go through the wizard, you need to chose compatibility over visual quality. If not, your server won't connect and you'll get errors about hevc. I haven't had time to look into this but it may be that I just didn't have the necessary codecs installed at build time.

I just use proton experimental bleeding edge & would like quick options to the API settings.

Is there an app that has the proton options as quick tick options for proton like tick raytracing = vkd3d_dxr. I think there is another ray tracing option = RADV_PERFTEST='rt'.

Modding on Linux, does it Just Work yet?

So I've decided to give Fallout 4 another go, haven't played it in a few years now since i migrated fully to Linux Mint, and Vortex Mod manager didn't work on Linux back then. I decided to give Vortex a go and it still does not work, both tried to download it and install trough wine and then tried through Lutris, none of them work, it either don't start at all or the whole thing freezez.

I also gave Mod Organizer 2 a go since it had a linux installer, but it wont accept nnm-files from Nexus, even though it asks me on start up about it. I also discovered that Nexus now allows bundled mods which I thought was awesome, but I can't even download those, it just gives me an error message in my web browser, saying it can't find Vortex.

So, to my question, are there any mod managers for linux that Just Works ? That's (preferably) not dependant on wine or at least where I don't have to spend hours on github installing a hundred new dependencies?

Thanks in advance for anyone who takes the time!

Can't run NFS:Most Wanted through Lutris

Arch Linux. I installed the pscx2 version. And every time I try to run it, I get the error: "The following i368 libraries are required but are not installed on your system: libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0"

I tried installing pcsx2 with yay but that didn't help.

Accessing the library with xlib: sequence lost error

If you, like me, tried everything to fix the annoying error Xlib: sequence lost (0x10000 > 0xbb12) in reply type 0xc! while opening steam and the app is just blank, you can still access your library through: view (second option, right side of the top menu) > small mode. You won't be able to fix the app itself but you will be able to play. Tested: Ender Lilies, FFXIV, Tekken 7.

libx11 problems with steam

Someone opened a topic about it before

https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/10459tz/steam_on_terminal_is_spamming_this_type_of_message/

Issue is open https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/9083

Im having the same problem. I'm able to open the app but i see only a blank window. FFXIV is running without any issues but i have 20 games installed and i can't even see my library. Downgrading did not fix.

Xlib: sequence lost (0x10000 > 0x2c7d) in reply type 0xc!

Question about distros

Hello everyone,

Looking to make the switch fully to Linux however I have a few questions based on my testing and research over the past few weeks.

I understand that fundamentally all distros are the same they are just different flavors (IE arch, debian, fedora, etc), and that if you like what you see in one distro you can do it in any of them.

My biggest question is concerning gaming. First, I see distros like Nobara and Garuda Dragonized Gaming who are specifically stated to be gaming distros and have high level things in them like kernal patches and memory optimization. These are things I don't feel comfortable with doing on my own. So my question is are these kinds of patches and optimization even necessary for gaming? Can I just install a vanilla linux flavor and make the easy gaming changes on my own like dxvk, proton GE, and esync?

My other question is when you choose a super specialized version of ilnux such as Nobara or Garuda, do I need to worry that these are maintained by small teams and will almost certainly not outlast the big companies like Ubuntu and Fedora?

Thanks for your time!

Is there any 3rd party CS:GO matchmaking system for linux?

I don't have prime and because of that I can't play ranked. So is there to play with ranks in csgo for free on linux?

Steam no longer starts on arch linux

Today, when I tried to boot up steam, I noticed it won't start. So, I launched it from a command line. I tried both steam-native and steam-runtime, whose run logs are basically the same (the main difference just being the first few messages about if it's running with the steam runtime or not). Said run log is pasted below. It is running in debug mde, so it is incredibly long, and for that I apologize:

My system is up to date as of writing. I have enough space left on the disk, and it's perfectly healthy according to smartctl. I haven't changed anything since yesterday, when it was running just fine. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling steam and that did not work. I renamed the config folder forcing it to create a new one, which did not work. Any ideas?

Overwatch 2 mouse unlocks like a menu cursor every time I respawn

I have a laptop with a GTX 1050Ti, and an i5-8300H running PopOS

I'm running the game on Proton 7.35 with DXVK 2.0 with Lutris since the Lutris wine version makes the game unplayable at around 30-40 fps with constant lag spikes (lowest settings btw)

Every time I die and respawn, my mouse unlocks as if I'm in the menu, and doesn't fix itself unless I tab back in and out of the game, is there anyway to fix this?

And yes, I DID try to turn on borderless windowed and forcing mouse warp, but it had no luck in fixing the issues

Any help is appreciated, ty

Distro choice for a new build with 7900 XT

Hi all,

My current PC is closing in on 8 years old, so I've picked up everything I need for a new build. I've been running Mint exclusively for the last 3-4 years, and dual booting it for years before that, and I really like that distro. I splurged on the graphics card for the new build though, and picked up a Radeon 7900 XT (the XTX wasn't available, and sounds like it's got heat issues anyway, so just went XT).

My understanding is that the 7900 XT will require a more up-to-date kernel than I'll get out of Mint, so I'll need to go with a rolling release distro, perhaps Arch or an Arch-derivative. It's been ages since I've really compared distros or anything, so I'm kind of out of the loop and don't know where to start. Any pointers about things to consider, distros to look at, and guides for compiling anything I'll need to compile or other pieces to put together would be great.

Other than gaming, this PC will be my main daily driver--web browsing, coding, writing, all that stuff. I'm not particularly intimidated by the commandline or anything, so I don't need a GUI installer or anything (though I'm fine with using one if it makes sense).

Any suggestions or tips welcomed; thanks!

Alan Wake Configuration

I am trying to run Alan Wake on my laptop (openSUSE tumbleweed with lutris-GE-Proton7-35-x86_64). As soon as I launch it, it shows the press any key... and then my entire laptop freezes and I have to reboot with reisub. My laptop is a bit old with 4gb ram and integrated graphics. I am sure it will run fine if I reduce the resolution, but I can't do that as it freezes before I reach that options screen. So anyway to solve this? Sorry for wall of text

TLDR Is there a way to create an Alan Wake config file without first launching game?

SteamOS or custom Arch rice

Currently obsessed with the docked steamdeck experience, but running into some games (elden ring) where the 4k/60 experience sounds really amazing.

Im a big pc gaming fan, have built two gaming pcs in the past (one in 2013 for myself and another in 2021 for my brothers stepson) and ive been using the 2013 computer as a server running arch for about two years now

Im currently looking into building a PC, unsure about specs but probably in the ballpark of pc part pickers excellent to enthusiast amd builds

The question is: Do I install SteamOS 3, which i understand is the version that runs on the steamdeck, and just rock that since itll feel like the steamdeck just permanently docked, or do I go for an Arch installation running (probably) an i3gaps r/unixporn kind of looking system and just use the steam beta big picture mode.

The pc will be exclusively plugged into a 65 TV in a kind of single/two person home theater, very much not a living room setup (ie having a keyboard/mouse is viable, i use kbm with the steamdeck)

Is there any real benefit of steamOS over just big picture mode other than ease of use/setup and convenience?

Anyone else notice the steam client is acting up lately?

It's been working fine for the past few years since I switched over, no issues of any kind, but for the past 2-3 days I've noticed it'll just randomly freeze, then go back to working like normal after about 20-30 seconds.

I had a controller plugged in, thought it was that, but even after removing it and rebooting it was still acting up. Thought maybe my OS was messing up and I went and just reinstalled the OS entirely and not even after an hour after install and getting my games reinstalled, it's happening again. No high usage of anything that I can tell, nothing I can find that's out of the ordinary.

I'm using Debian 11, i7-7700, RX 470, 16GB RAM. Any ideas or anyone else experiencing this?

Left 4 Dead 2: Game freezes when moving the camera / mouse until mouse buttons or keyboard input

It's been 3 days since I'm having this issue, the game is unplayable and I don't know how it happened or why. It used to run flawlessly on my laptop (I3-10110U and HD 620).

  • I already tried verifying game files integrity, it would fail to verify 1 file every time I open the game.
  • My launch options are -nojoy -novid -vulkan (already tried using -opengl but the problem remains)
  • Reinstalled Linux (I'm using Artix Linux with OpenRC)

To my surprise, if I use Proton (GE, 7.0 or Experimental) the problem isn't present. Maybe it's a missing package/lib/dependency problem?

Testing DXVK 2.0 and VKD3D 2.8

I upgraded from DXVK 1.10.3 and VKD3D 2.6 to DXVK 2.0 and VKD3D 2.8 and decided to benchmark the performance. I used Cyberpunk 2077 that I installed via Lutris and manually changed both of them in the Configure dialog for the game. The wine runtime is lutris-GE-proton7-35-x86_64 - the one that is distributed via Lutris. Benchmarking didn't reveal any statistically significant performance improvements. Was I wrong to expect them or is there a change they are not picked up by the Wine runtime? I also noticed that Wine prefix directory for the game contains its own d3d11.dll and d3d12.dll which have distinct checksums compared to the ones from DXVK and VKD3D in ~/.local/share/lutris/runtime/.

PSA: The new OBS update breaks VA-API encoding when used with the Flatpak

Several months ago, Mesa made the compilation of H264 and H265 support in VA-API opt-in. Many distros (especially corporate ones like Fedora/RHEL and SUSE) decided to disable H264 and H265 support in their repositories. Others, most notably Debian and Arch, decided to keep H264 and H265 support.

The Flatpak maintainers have not yet made a concrete decision on the matter which means that the VA-API H264 and H265 support is now disabled on the newer runtimes. OBS recently updated its Flatpak runtime, and hence its runtime no longer supports VA-API H264 and H265 encoding. OBS itself does not support AV1 encoding on Radeon 7000 series/Intel Arc on Linux yet either, which means that the Flatpak version of OBS 29 cannot do GPU encoding on Linux with AMD or Intel hardware, period.

For now, the solution seems to be downgrading to 28 or going for the native packages (given that your distro did not leave H264 and H265 turned off...).

Does anyone use NFS shares for gaming with steam?

I got a question, I got a laptop NFS connected with a NAS, with WIFI. Since wifi is much slower than cable, how does it work? For example if I am downloading a game, into the NFS share in NAS, does it first send the data to my laptop with WIFI, than to NAS? Or directly to NAS? On second choice it is ought to be faster so. I want to know about this.

Does anticheat create problem for Linux users?

I installed Fortnite (Heroic, because Epic Games Launcher don't work) and everything was ok, untill I started the game: it crash. Lately I found that I need an anticheat. A red on a site that show anticheat support for Linux, and for Fortnite there are no support... Also lutris (I tried another way) say something like: "You can't install Fortnite cause of anticheat while the agency don't develop it for Linux".

Basically, there are no anticheat available for Fortnite on Linux, so it's impossible to play... But somebody did it the same. How?

AMD Rog Strix AE DP input lag

Hi All,

Got an AMD Rog Strix AE with the Radeon 6800M and so far its been fantastic! Games on the laptop monitor are super fast and so much simpler to set up than my other laptop with an Nvidia 3070.

However, I tried to plug it into my Dell 2k monitor using the DP connection on the back of the laptop and was able to get video, but mouse clicks and keyboard input is SUPER laggy.

For example, I right click on the mouse or two finger tap on the touch pad and the context menu comes up like 2 to 3 seconds later. Scrolling is just as bad.

If I join the two monitors, the lag is still there on my external monitor, but the laptop monitor is normal.

Im on EndeavorOS fully updated.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

Oh my other Nvidia laptop, the DP adapter works without issue.

Thanks!

Ubuntu 22.10 and stuttery CSGO

Last time i have played CSGO was this summer on Windows 11 and it worked great. Now since the release of Ubuntu 22.10 i wiped Windows and went full on Ubuntu. Due to collage i did not have time to try any games but now since it is Christmass i had enought time to launch CSGO a bit with friends.

The game is stuttering quite a lot, i have an RX560 2GB GPU. The hardware hasnt changed when i installed linux. I tried playing arround with video settings but i cant make it not lag. The stutter starts when I am 5sec into the match and happens mostly on dust2 mid but the same goes for all places as well as all other maps

I am new to gaming on linux and using desktop linux in general so maybe if there are some things that are assumed i did write theme down its possible that i havent done theme.

System: i5 10400 + 512GB samsung 870plus evo ssd + 32GB of 3200mhz ram + rx560 2gb
(i use this system for coding/devops and wathing youtube and now for gaming, gpu was never a priority since i only play csgo and minecraft)

PS: When i launched csgo for the first time i had a hard time making it go to fullscreen, so now i launch it with -fullscreen argument on steam

Thank you

Spore sound is "laggy", bad quality.

Spore sound is "laggy", bad quality. The wine logs say "ERROR: Could Not Get Primary Adapter Handle", but that's it. Wine prefix with vcr, d3dx9, dsound and dmusic installed. Does not happen with other games. Distribution is Debian Bullseye. Wine stable, error still happens with Proton and other versions of Wine, like the Lutris build.

Honestly there isn't much information on this error. The Spore version is the GOG release.

Nintendo Joycon support via steam

Hi there, I'm running Pop Os 22.04. I can connect my joycons via bluetooth and the distro correctly detects them as joycon L and joycon R, but in steam the option to combine joycons into a switch pro like controller does not work. They only remain as individual controllers. I'm attempting to connect them and use them as a switch pro like controller because right now I have awful tendonitis in my right arm and this would be the most comfortable way for me to game while I attempt to give my arm time to recover.

Adding games from Epic to Steam

Hey, I'm having some troubles running Nioh from Epic on Linux and couldn't find any fixes, so I hope someone can help me here.

The thing is, when I launch Nioh from Epic (installed through Lutris), the game runs perfectly, but there's no sound. The game isn't muted and other games that I've tried on Epic seem to have working sound.

I fixed a lot of games from Epic by adding them to Steam as a non-Steam game (e. g. Mortal Shell didn't run at all, but after adding it to Steam, it runs without any problems.). So I tried it with Nioh. The game launched and I got an error massage that I need to run the game through Epic. But the sound in that menu worked. I just couldn't get into the game because the Epic version seems to be blocked somehow. This also happened to me with Borderlands 2, which didn't launch at all but on Steam it launched without any problems. And I also got the same error there.

Is there any way to make these "blocked" games work on Steam? Any help appreciated.

Starbound - Symbolic Links - Save Files

Hi,

Starbound does not backup the save files to the steam cloud, which makes it hard for me to float between my Desktop, Steam Deck and Laptop (Note: All Running Linux)

I wanted to make a symbolic link from my Nextcloud (Being the source) to the storage / save space where the game is installed.

I made the link, and when I test it in gnome files (Nautilous I think its called. Sorry if I butchered the spelling), it works.

However, the game wont launch with the symbolic link. I think I am missing a step or something important.

I used the usual command "ln -s "

Thanks in advance.

Valve is Paying 100+ Open-Source Developers to work on Proton, Mesa, and More

See except for the recent The Verge interview with Valve.

Griffais says the company is also directly paying more than 100 open-source developers to work on the Proton compatibility layer, the Mesa graphics driver, and Vulkan, among other tasks like Steam for Linux and Chromebooks.

This is how Linux gaming has been able to narrow the gap with Windows by investing millions of dollars a year in improvements.

If it wasn't for Valve and Red Hat, the Linux desktop and gaming would be decades behind where it is today

NVIDIA RTX 4070 Ti minimum power limit?

Anybody happen to have a RTX 4070 Ti? I'm thinking about purchasing one to put in my fanless build. Yes, it sounds insane, but the 4070 Ti has a small PCB and I think it might fit.

The only important question is: can I enforce a power limit of ~120W?

I currently have a 3060 Ti, which has a default power limit of 200W and maximum power limit of 220W. Minimum power limit is 100W. I've set the power limit to 120W, which matches the cooling capacity my case (Streacom DB4) has. Even though it's power limited, it's remarkable how much performance is still available.

So, the 4070 Ti being more efficient and better spec'd, would be a nice upgrade. Plus it has DLSS3.

But I believe the default power limit for the 4070 Ti is 285W, so I'm wondering where NVIDIA has set the minimum power limit for this card.

This can be easily retrieved with the command nvidia-smi -i 0 -q -d POWER which gives a result like this:

I would be really thankful if someone could post the results for their RTX 4070 Ti.

moderated Console/Netflix like experience

I want my gaming PC to become a moderated console of some sorts. I have a 7 year old son and I want him to be able to turn the PC and controller on and without any effort to select any game and play. Without any login screen, desktop or app switching. I have games on Steam, Epic, Ubisoft, itch.io and CEMU.

I imagine a Netflix like UI where he can select any game and it just work. Of course I have to configure a lot but is it possible?
Steam Big picture come to mind but It has too many feature I don't want. There is no need for a Shop or Steam Community. Also I want to hide and Option Menus to be only configurable from me. Any Ideas?

Lightweight Linux distro for low-end gaming?

Hello!
I have a relatively old laptop with these specs and I want to do some low-end gaming on it.
I am looking for a Linux distro that takes up minimal amounts of storage and memory while also being able to run games. I plan to play relatively old games on this machine like GTA San Andreas or Oblivion.
I have never used Linux before and I am a bit confused on what distro would fit my needs since there are so many out there.
Thanks.

Here's the specs of the laptop:
16 gigabytes of storage
4 gigabytes of RAM
Celeron N3060 1.6GHz Processor

Elden Ring not running due to EAC failure (white screen then crash)

System: Arch with a 5700 XT, Mesa 22.

It does work when I swap around "eldenring.exe" and "start_protected_game.exe", however that is just bypassing EAC and won't let me play with online features, which I would like to do.

Things I've tried:

-Multiple proton versions, 7.0-5 (current stable), 7.0-6 (next), experimental, experimental bleeding edge, and GE 7-73

-Installed "Proton EasyAntiCheat Runtime" in Steam

-Used the launch command VKD3D_FEATURE_LEVEL=12_0 %command% from a recommendation here

-Attempted to remove the /compatdata/ file for Elden Ring between trying various Proton versions per the recommendation of the above post

-Attempted to start the game while offline, per recommendation of another post

Only thing I have not tried yet is completely uninstalling and re-installing, which I'd like to only do as a last resort since it's a 50gb download.

Looking for other advice to try. Thanks!

Xbox Controller Stopped Working with Steam Overnight

Have been running Ubuntu 22.04 with for gaming with just about zero issues until this morning my Xbox controller stopped working with steam. The controller says that it is connected but no inputs are recognized even when the controller was plugged in. I am using Xpadneo for wireless connection. I re-connected the controller with Xpadneo but the controller still just states connected in steam with no inputs, however I can now plug it in and inputs will be recognized. Anyone else experience this?

Okay hear me out about Gamescope

I needed to go back to windows because of Skyrim modding(too complex on linux for me, just not worth it) but overall I like linux gaming. One of the tools I love is Gamescope and I think something like that should be ported to windows. Probably GS itself cannot be ported but man we need similar tool on windows. It makes setting a lot of things easier and also fixes alt-tabbing on some old titles. That what i wanted to say I love linux gaming but sadly I needed to come back to windows and tools like Gamescope would be useful even outside of Linux.

Merge Monitors in X11

Hello, is there any possibilities to merge 3 Monitors to one single virtual screen? I tried xrandr --setmonitor to create one single Screen, but all games still ignore this and try to render on each single monitor. I also tried to create custom resolution with cvt and give this to the monitors. Firefox or everything else looks fine and worked for me but games still ignore the new Resolution. I also tested proton and native games. I using AMD 6800XT, Archlinux, Qtile and 3x27" 2560x1440 Monitors.

Thank you Valve

I used to get most my games from GOG because DRM free is great. However, Steam is the only platform I am purchasing games from anymore. They have many employees actively working to get as many games as possible working on Linux. Linux gaming might never have been a viable option without Valve.

I made the switch to Linux around 2006, and very few games had a Linux client. Getting games to work with wine back then was not an easy task generally speaking.

The future is looking bright for us Linux gamers.

Sincerely, Thank you

Replacing RTX 2070 with Radeon 6700xt on POP 22.04: A love story.

Most games were working mostly alright, definitely playable. But if I were to every try to stream anything as soon as I would start capturing with OBS my game performance would tank. The on screen fps counter and what I was experiencing would never match up. My "90" fps would feel like 20, no matter what capture method I used.

Since making the switch to AMD this problem seems to have disappeared! Hooray!

What games CANT you play on linux?

So for background info, I daily drive Arch for everything BUT my gaming, for that I virtualize windows 10 with QEMU GPU pass-through and it runs really well and serves my needs perfectly. Recently however I picked up a steam deck and have been playing all sorts of games natively on Linux with proton or maybe proton GE. By a WIDE margin, more games work than don't; However the only game I haven't gotten to work completely has been fortnite but even then I'm able to get into a lobby and run around before crashing.

Now back to the title, what games have y'all not been able to get running on linux? because as my experience stands now, I'm very tempted to make the full dive and wanted to get the experience of other community members! also please do tell what distro you're rocking, Im always curious about that kind of stuff.

Spore sound is "laggy", bad quality. The video is an example. The wine logs say "ERROR: Could Not Get Primary Adapter Handle", but that's it. Wine prefix with vcr, d3dx9, dsound and dmusic installed. Does not happen with other games.

144hz makes fans spin loudly

Hey guys I noticed for a while now, for certain games my fans start to spin very loudly on many/most games I play. I play shooters like Apex Battlefield Isonzo Squad etc and can run them great on my setup. But it's generally in these games where the fans become loud and go wild. I tried setting my refresh rate to 120hz after reading up on it and discovered it greatly improves it and makes the fans calm down, instantly. But it's not every game, for example GTA V runs 144hz wonderfully, but Apex Legends simply sitting at the menu idle for more than 30 secs causes the fans to kick up super loud. But setting it to 120hz and relaunching the game, the fans stay mostly silent. Then one last time to check bump it up to 144, and yep, fans go wild.

I use an RX590 Ryzen 7 5800. I have a 144hz LG Freesync monitor, although Freesync is turned off via monitor settings because I don't yet have support for VRR in GNOME Wayland. My GPU drivers come from Mesa. I use Feral Gamemode and thus do not use another CPU Scheduler such as cpupower. I have seen reports of users managing their own temps/CPU/GPU power using other apps, but this is a little beyond my knowledge, and I haven't had to do such things yet, it's all been plug & play thus far. I use Archie Gnome Waloonda, btw

Keyboard controls in waydroid?

Is it possible to make keyboard controls in waydroid similar to the ones on blue stacks?

For example basic fps controls: have w, a, s, d control the virtual thumbstick in a game, be able to lock the mouse so when you move it the ingame camera moves as well and have left click press the "shoot" button which is always at the same place on the screen?

wasn't able to find the awnser to this anywhere

(Also I know waydroid is not an emulator but not a single other tag made sense)

Fuck you BHVR.

So basically: You can finally start the game! They activated Proton Support in their EasyAntiCheat settings! And let me tell you: It runs like butter!!

Finally I could play my game again - its almost been a year of not playing!

And then they did the best part: After a month of successful usage, they proceeded to disallow Proton-clients to join their servers! So every time you want to join instead of an EAC error, now you can enjoy waiting in the lobby and waiting for mates and the killer only to get disconnected when the game starts! Isnt that great?!??!?

God this company is the best that could have happened to linux gaming i love them so much!!!

Steam version of Beyond Good and Evil, audio desync

Steam version of Beyond Good and Evil, audio desync

I tried to play the Steam version of this game and I encounter this issues:

  1. The first issue could be easily fix by Valve.
    You can not launch game settings application because there is an error in regedit .
    See here: Beyond Good and Evil (15130)#1536 (comment)
    I don't know what is cause this error in regedit as the .vdf script contains correct parameters.

  2. audio desync
    It is a very well known issue for this game that is not related to Wine, this issue exists on Windows too.
    There are workarounds.
    First limit framerate to 60 fps (easy to do on Linux with DXVK, using DXVK_FRAME_RATE=60), but it is not enough to avoid audio desinc, at least it avoids glitch.
    Secondly, using a specific sound.dll version, copy it in the main game folder, override it native, builtin.

  3. alt+tab, cursor is not visible with others windows, is it not possible to release mouse cursor from BEyong Good and Evil window
    I think it is a more global issue with Proton in general and game in fullscreen.

After multiple tests, using dsound.dll is the only solution that works to avoid audio desync in Beyond Good and Evil from GOG and Ubisoft Connect version, but it doesn't work with Steamplay (Proton experimental) and I don't understand why.

Limit 60 fps with DXVK is not enough to avoid audio desynch, we need the dsound.dll to works with Proton.

I made a test: I wrote a Lutris script that install Beyond Good and Evil on Windows Steam.
In this environment, dsound.dll works as expected and I have no more audio desync.
But it will be far better if we can use it directly with Steamplay, on Linux Steam.

If someone found a solution to avoid audio desync in BGAE Steam version, let a comment here.

For testing purpose, you can find my Lutris script here:

PSA: don't use xf86-video-amdgpu with Wayland

I had an epiphany this morning

I use Wayland exclusively over xorg, and it turns out installing this xf86-video-amdgpu package on top of the usual Mesa (which provides amdgpu already) conflicted with my game performance. I removed it on Arch with yay -R xf86-video-amdgpu, rebooted, and it is night and day. It even boots faster.

If anyone needs me, I'll be finally gaming on Linux with good performance for the first time in months. See you on the battlefield

Flawless Widescreen Developer Wants to Help Us Linux Users

I spoke with the developer of Flawless Widescreen regarding compatibility of FW within Linux. He wants to know how he can help with functionality of his software in Linux as he doesnt use the OS himself. So I ask everyone here. How can he help us penguin users with FW?

What is Flawless Widescreen? Its an application with game fixes for lacking ultrawide, super ultrawide, and triple monitor setups plus including FOV fixes and more. Some of those fixes include:

However there are already a few options for getting FW working with Proton, but I havent had any luck with them. It seems to be a bit difficult to get FW to work correctly. Trying to get FW and FF7remake to recognize/see each other. I have done the following.

  • All configurations of the config file and arguments tried here
  • ProtonPreloader: Flawless Widescreen starts up, but FF7remake will not
  • ProtonPreloader: Renamed the exe & modified the config.bat file
  • FW: tried both 86x plugins and 64x FF7remake
  • ProtonPreloader: Pressing any key: batch window just re-opens Flawless Widescreen over and over again
  • Protontricks: FF7 opens, but FW does not
  • WINEPREFIX: FW doesnt open
  • FW: 64x plugins doesnt work in linux? I have seen this mentioned before
  • Added FW to Steam as a non-steam game, but of course it cant see FF7remake

Maybe it would be better if we had compatibility with FW in Linux without the use of third-party tools? Those tools are ProtonPreloader, Protontricks, and SteamTinkerLauncher. If so, how can we help the Flawless Widescreen Developer with this?

Overwatch works flawlessly

On protons steam launcher. I tried bottles and lutris but the game kept crashing.

I mightve found the solution though, disabling pulse effects. It might be an issue with latency and resource use. (Not resource use, stability, its unstable when the overwatch sound stream is processed by pulseeffects, it causes the game to crash.)

Anyways, this is an appreciation post. Its really good.

Why do you do this to me?

I'm only playing apex legends on my computer so it doesn't matter if my os is windows or linux. So i tried this pop os since it is the one i heard and it looks easy to install. But goddamn! It is so confusing to navigate and it is weird . So i google everything to make apex legends run in pop os and i almost uninstalled it since i had to do many things first (i guess it is the same for windows lol).

When i finally make it work, launch to practice range I'm a bit surprised because I don't need to optimize anything and it kinda runs smoothly. But what amazes me is the audio! The enemy's footsteps are on point! Like i bought new high end headphones or something, i can literally pinpoint where the enemies are diagonally and vertically! Like how?! Why is that?! Splain that!!

Ps. I am now double booting since i may need some apps in the future and it is kind of hard to make something run on linux.

How does sensitivity work in KDE/linux?

So I've come from windows and play a ton of apex. How does the sensitivity compare to windows? Whenever I change my cursor speed in KDE system settings it changes my ingame sensitivity for some reason. Can I use a converter so I can match it up to my windows sensitivity or possibly make it so it only increases my cursor speed and make it so my game only uses raw input?

Astra Defender: a space shooter action RTS, would love your feedback!

TL;DR: Just released an alpha of my new arcade action RTS. Play it and give me feedback!

Hey everyone, I'm working on a multiplayer space shooter action RTS. Imagine Asteroids-style movement, but with building and commanding fighters. (If you're older and have ever played Gate 88, this is my love letter to that game )

Some unique features:

  • Active RTS. You're not just placing units and watching. You're also piloting a ship, which happens to be your most powerful unit.
  • Infinite playing field. You can build anywhere you like, as long as you travel to it. You can only build where your ship is; there's no clicking and placing units from a distance.
  • Quick game loop. As an arcade RTS, matches are fairly quick. The default PvP mode is a 45-minute score attack, so you have less than an hour to build, upgrade, and annihilate your enemies.
  • Efficient, distraction-free UI. Astra Defender uses a minimal, mouse-free menu (I call it the M3 for short; it can also stand for muscle-memory menu). It takes a second to learn, but all action items take 2-3 keystrokes / controller taps and can be customized quicker input.
  • Form alliances. You can team up with any player at any time during a match. But be careful, alliances can also be broken at any time...

Now the alpha is finally here! You can download it here. I'm looking for some playtesters who are willing to do some scheduled PvP sessions and provide feedback. I'm especially looking for people who have a knack for finding "optimal" (imbalanced) strategies :) If you're interested, let me know!

Like my last game, this one is developed on Linux and primarily tested there! And I'm really curious about how well it holds up on your own machine, so let me know if you have any issues!

(You can also Wishlist it on Steam)

Weird mouse freezing issues native linux games

The worst offender is csgo, in that game the game only runs when I am moving my mouse. Litterally freezes until I move my mouse at which point 300+ fps

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0w2GwJngdI <- video showing csgo running like this

I have narrowed it down to only native linux games I think, because Inscryption would occasionally freeze and moving my mouse would unfreeze it, and celeste during the intro would have the same problem but after an hour of gameplay it only applied to the very beginning. It was after reading somewhere that celeste is a native game that it prompted me to check Inscryption and so was it. I am fairly confident that is the issue, but why.. I'm lost.

I use Gentoo, amdgpu, xmonad, picom, Kernel Version 6.1.2, and the non flatpak version of steam.

I have checked far and wide and I cant even find an example of a similiar issue with any game ever, it only comes up with people who's game's break when they *do* move their mouse. Maybe bad googling on my part, but I have no Idea where to begin.

Wine Regression? City Of Heroes-Homecoming stopped working after updates.

I ran COH-Homecoming on Linux Mint for two years with no problems. I ran Wine-dev and Lutris. In early December I moved to a new computer with POP!_OS I installed ESO and COH-Homecoming both ran great. COH is an older game and uses 32bit files afaik but ran well in 64bit mode.

Just before Christmas there were kernel updates, Lutris updates, and Wine updates. Wine is now 8.0 rc2. ESO runs fine but COH freezes as soon as I enter the game world when using Lutris. COH runs longer using just Wine but eventually freezes. I have given the game 4 cores and have 32Gb ram.

I have tried various methods to get the game to work:

https://www.reddit.com/r/pop_os/comments/zz3i9e/missing_driver_question_i386_libglso1_missing/

In various comments people have said there was a Wine regression causing the errors.

So, is the problem Wine-dev itself and should I uninstall and switch to Wine stable?

Not Tech Support - Distro Suggestions for an MMO Addicted Programmer

Hey all!
I've been distro shopping for a while. I was previously using Manjaro, and now Pop! OS. I really don't like POP's DE and I think I've broken it to some degree or another forcing in KDE stuff like Dolphin.

I game a LOT, currently playing God of War, FFXIV, and Median XL.

My workflow mostly revolves around a very based emacs installation with a couple music players hooked in.

My system is a laptop with an Nvidia GPU and an ASUS sound chipset (every distro I've tried requires manual tweaks for the sound to work)

Ideally, I'd like to run KDE. I'd like the packages to be a bit older, and to run games very easily. High compatibility is a concern here. Preferably I'd like the entire system to just default to my dGPU during install (I know it's a laptop) and forget about it.

The only real distros that are out of the question are Garuda and Manjaro: can't trust MJ any more, and Garuda has a god-awful ui and is packed full of way too much to be useful or practical to me.

Right now I'm picking between Drauger, Kubuntu, Nobara, and Endeavour.

I have issues with each I suspect will come up - Kubuntu's kinda plain and might lack possible performance boosts in Drauger, but Drauger outright warns of bugs and compatibility issues.

I haven't used Fedora in a long time so Nobara makes me a little nervous, both in terms of compatibility and my own confidence using it.

Endeavour looks cool but seems like out of all these, might take the most kejiggering to get working to my needs.

Just wondering what people around here like to drive!

Is Linux gaming ever going to get to a point where we don't need ProtonGE to achieve "meta" performance? I do appreciate the work and passion that goes into the project but the perceived necess
