GPLed our game catalog
Today we put our first game, "Meditation 5" under a GPL. With this, all our games are "liberated"; the source codes are all available and put under GPL3; for "Acid Flight" and "Meditation 5" this also goes for the assets except of the fonts (that we don't own). **Our games:** **The Vaults of Minos** is a roguelite precision platformer with very fluid controls and an refined level generation. Assets are non-free, but you might download the demo and place the binary you can build from the source there; the resulting game will have all features available. ![]( **Acid Flight** is a version of "Icy Towers" put on steroids. You might experience a texture glitch when starting it, in this case just restart the game (might require a few attempts). ![]( **Meditation 5** is an minimal, abstract light gun game designed around taoist philosophy that should be played with a controller. ![]( Check them out!

Which linux-ready gaming titles have you snatched from the steam winter sales?
Which titles are you ready to play on your linux-powered machine, be it pc or steam deck? I'm having a blast with Death Stranding (albeit performance can be a little groggy on my dated i5-7500); I then plan on playing DOOM (2016) and Hades.

1080 TI vs Rx Vega 64 with Pop OS
I'm getting handed down either 1080TI or Rx Vega 64. 1080TI definitely has better benchmarks however how is experience of them being used on Linux (I use Pop OS)? If Rx Vega provides stable / reliable experience then I would pick that. [EDIT/UPDATE]: picked up rx vega, pretty good out of the box experience

I’m having crashing problems with certain games and looking for advice or conformation that its a common issue.
I'm playing with steam with the latest version of proton on Linux Mint 21. Kernel 5.15.0-56. RTX 3070, last generation am4 R7 1800X. Certain games crash for no apparent reason, requiring a hard reset. The two most recent games with this issue were Horizon Zero Dawn and Remnant: From the ashes. It doesn't seem to be related to anything. It's not related to high load or load in, though sometimes it correlates other times it will just crash while nothing is happening. I think it might have something to do with the Vulcan shaders. Both of the named games take an unusually long time to process them. With Horizon Zero Dawn it can take up to twenty minutes and the processing itself causes the CPU fans to ramp up. I checked Nvidia's website to make sure I was using the most recent driver. It shows 525.60.11 as the most recent, which is what I'm using. The recommended open kernel version simply doesn't work, but closed works just fine; and I have no reason to think it's a gpu issue. I don't know if this is a solvable issue or if its something that has to be dealt with. On a side note: how do you get the resolution you want? I have a 4k monitor but my display is set to 1080p for readability. There's upscaling, but that upscales the game. The option to go above your system resolution is not available. So the only real solution would be to set the display to the hardware resolution and put my nose against the screen in order to access the game. It seems like such a weird hindrance. The hardware is there, but for readability sake you're stuck at 1080p

Arcane Cache - Review blog for underground indie games
The [Arcane Cache]( reviews games that fly beyond the radar of the big gaming sites and blogs. I focus on amateur games and niche productions. Since I play exclusive with Linux, all games I review run native or with wine.

Nobara Project - The fedora distro with preinstalled packages to make gaming easier for linux newcomers!
**Some of these patches include:** - kernel patched with cherry-picked zen patches - kernel patched with OpenRGB - kernel patched with AMD CPCC - kernel patched to enable amdgpu for pre-polaris cards by default instead of radeon - kernel patched with steam deck support - kernel configured with ashmem, binder, and android support for Waydroid - kernel patched with windows surface support - kernel patched with asusctl patches for better asus laptop compatibility.

Interestingly, AMD is now more popular among Linux users than Intel.

>ScummVM allows you to play classic graphic point-and-click adventure games, text adventure games, and RPGs, as long as you already have the game data files. ScummVM replaces the executable files shipped with the games, which means you can now play your favorite games on all your favorite devices.

Nor sure why you would play games in your car, but I guess it's still good publicity for Linux.

And many more work out of the box, just not officially verified. At this point it's probably safe to assume that all games work with Linux, unless some crazy anti cheat or DRM explicitly bans Linux users.

It would be a huge win for Linux and open source if GPD ditches Windows.

Help getting Titanfall 2 to run
Hi everyone, I got tf2 during this steam sale but I have not been able to run it in my machine (Arch/amd gpu). I was hoping I could get some help from you guys The game won't event launch and my guess is that the origin client is being the problem, since it never launches, and the last line of the steam window is something like > "Installing originthinsetup.exe" I've followed this guides: Origin additional dependencies [ ]() Drivers []() I've tried reinstalling the game, deliting the prefix and I've tried proton-ge but I don't know what else to do And for some reason it does run on a linux mint machine, so theres that.
