Linux rust will be no more

about a week ago garry newman posted plans to seperate the linux client from windows/mac. this has now been updated to discontinuing it and offering refunds to linux users no matter the hours

atleast its not a typical garry newman post there is some fud there(claims linux has about ~200 players last 30 days even though they havent sold for linux for a year and broken it multiple times in past 3 months and of those 200 its apparently a cheaters sanctuary and compiled scripting will solve cheating)

could be worse they are admitting treating linux users like crap and they are offering refunds now so im kinda mixed how i feel about this rust is a good game with really bad developers.

Steam adds its own version of wine and DXVK into steam beta

previously running games on linux using wine would report whatever windows version wine has been configured to report. with this linux users should be able to run windows games on linux using steams new wine inside the linux client and have it be reported as a linux sale. big plus not having to setup wine and be counted as a WINDOWS SALE

i’ve opted into the beta and will have a play around with it my library has about 200 or so windows games from bundles/cancelled ports

Killing floor free on humble bundle

killing floor is free on humble bundle for a day

good wave based fps game that runs awesome on linux except for 2 bugs. nvidia users get glitched out textures on some things it doesn’t affect the game in a negative way(actually we can see stuff that are meant to be invisible so lil cheaty :p) just an annoyance and if you download mods(like votemap/etc) you can not earn any xp to your level. this is fixable by clearing out the cache folder and installing those mods properly.
