To start off, does anyone else have problems running Yume Nikki on wine-2.0.2? I used to be able to play fine, but now when I start up the game I get "unable to use direct show".

Hunter Reyes
Hunter Reyes

what games you playing?
SWAT 4
Hitman series
Doom
Arma 3

what problems do you have while WINE'ing?
Silent Hill 3 freezes the whole system
Silent Hill 2 has no music. Have had to reboot to wangblows for these titles.
SWAT 4 originally couldn't jail the mouse and it would escape to secondary or bump off side of screen. Fixed by disabling virtual desktop. Character models would be completely black, fixed by checking glsl=disabled w/ winetricks. Now it literally runs better than in wangblows which always has serious window, resolution & widescreen issues.
Project Reality has garbage reports on wineHQ so again reboot to wangblows for that.
Hitman: Contracts' widescreen fixes only work on wangblows.

what software company are you cursing for all eternity?
Micropenis obviously.
Raspberry Pi cucks (anti-gg)
Google (too many reasons to list).

Angel Roberts
Angel Roberts

games
Rise of the Triad and Doom.
Wine
I don't use that anymore for trust reasons. Games get tossed onto a spare Windows laptop, or game systems: Wii, PS3, 3DS, Vita.
companies to curse
Too many.

Use EasyRPG instead. I don't remember it having any serious issues except maybe the save music.

Realistic Unity emulation!!!

Does anyone know the name of that site where you can pirate native Linux games?
The URL was somethingtor.com. I can't remember the name of it for the life of me. Someone gave me the link a couple weeks ago, but I forgot to bookmark it.

emulation on linux is such a pain in the ass

Jeremiah Gomez
Jeremiah Gomez

what games you playing?
All kinds of shootan games, they work pretty well.
what problems do you have while WINE'ing?
Fucking Total Annihilation, barely starts and if it starts, the megamap is a nice DirectX-default blue. I'd play SupCom instead, but that doesn't have the sweet palette graphics and nostalgia. Pre-XP games are a pain in the ass to get running properly, but then again it's not like it's easier under Windows nowadays.
what software company are you cursing for all eternity?
Microsoft, Google, Red Hat. By far not all that deserve a holocaust but these three would be a good start.
what unrelated opinion of yours did nobody ask about?
Obsessively dickstroking about your OS on a vidya board is fanboism on the level of mactards and the Linux world would be better off without faggots like this.

Luke Wright
Luke Wright

its not, you only install retroarch or use wine to run emus like CEMU, the only thing i havent tried on linux is Wii/NGC emulators, in fact its easier to get emulators running in linux than it is to get a single PC game from the last 5 years to boot

Logan Flores
Logan Flores

change to wine devel? its at 2.14, also check the appdb

Tyler Ward

Man I meant to try out the Zachtronics games but never got around to it, should I start out with any in particular? Shenzhen looks the most interesting to me as I'm in EE and interested in both circuit design and firmware. I've also been meaning to play some of the other flash games besides Codex but don't really want to install Flash again.

Ryder Barnes
Ryder Barnes

Total Annihilation should work happily, at least I don't remember needing to screw around with it compared to certain games. However I am running the GOG version with TA Bugfix, nothing fancy, apparently there's been a bunch of special hacks to it lately.

using Wine for emulators
Better idea: Fuck CEMU and Project64. They're cancer.

Juan Smith
Juan Smith

The only problem I have is ugly fonts. And that shit isn't something specific to Yume Nikki, that's almost in every game I run through Wine.

Evan Thomas
Evan Thomas

I'd say that SpaceChem is the classic Zachtronics experience, but I haven't played the others yet, honestly. I finished SpaceChem and am currently trying to finish TIS-100, but I'm getting way too frustrated. What's most infuriating is that I'm trying to do something quite simple, but I lack the tools to do it simply. It's like trying to drive a nail into a wooden board with a baseball bat instead of a hammer and with your hands tied behind your back. In a zero gravity environment.

Subcom does work fucking amazingly with FAF, though. The fan client is actually natively cross platform.

Works dandy, thanks user
The share pasta has a section for linux games, and lgdb.org/ has a list of linux games in general, but I don't know what you're talking about. If had *tor, it's probably also *ator though.

Bumping, I am in need of help. I have some shitty ports which run, but have odd bugs. Anybody knows how to fix them? I am on Debian Jessie.

civilization 5
<sometimes enemy units "get corrupted"
<mouse over them crashes the game
<have to navigate very carefully, especially if they are near my cities
<stupid sudden camera jumps across the map kill my soul and my game
<if it's a siege unit -> suicide
<most reliable method is suing for peace, but it's not possible for 15 or so turns if they are attacking you

cities skylines
<used to work fine
<after reinstalling the distro, it's broken
<"freezes" at loading screen
<not actually a freeze
<if i click or hold a button the gay bird spins
<if i let it go, it stops again
<tried holding space for a minute, it spins but no result
<constant 2-3 percent cpu usage, but nothing happens ever

Also seeing it seems that AA2 can actually run. Will it get any better or will I have to learn to love faceless girls?

Actually it can work now, but it's a pain. The trick is that for some reason Sims 2 requests 1024 vertex shaders but Wine is limited to 256, whatever that means. Check out WineHQ for more info. In short, you'll have to recompile shit to get it running and it plays bad even then. And Sims 3 is better anyways and actually works.

what problems do you have while WINE'ing?
99% of good games work but it would be nice if a shit game worked well every now and then, For instance nfs prostreet is a d3d9 game that's broken to this day. Meanwhile 3000x worse games that are just trash all over are making huge progress like gta 5.
Why do you need to emulate sims 2 when linux works just fine for masturbating to porn of galko-chan's sister?

Luke Hill

what games you playing?
Shadow Tactics, Left 4 Dead 2 and trying to get into ARMA 3

what problems do you have while WINE'ing?
Not really a wine problem I suppose but it sucks that steam won't let me download the windows games so I could emulate them, not with a native steam install anyway.

what software company are you cursing for all eternity?
Creative for their sound jewery, if not for them we could have great soundscapes by now.

stuff no one asked for
Any popular good fightan game that works on linux? And if not any one where the crack has working MP? I only have Skullgirls working right now and I am really not too fond of playing that online.

Is it possible to play lewd nip vidya and install all the autistic mods in a win7 virtual machine? How limited is a VM in relation on playing videogames? How about multiplayer? Steam?

Wyatt Watson
Wyatt Watson

VM is perfect because it's literally running windows. There's no compatibility problems if the VM software supports your hardware. The only thing different is the overhead from the host machine which means you may get a few less FPS.

Andrew Collins
Andrew Collins

which is the best VM? And how safe is it while running shit like steam?

Angel Evans
Angel Evans

VM
Lag, and the possibility of not being able to use your GPU if you can't do a passthrough. I recommend dualbooting over using a VM. That being said, you should always try wine first.
safety
There's some obscure exploits that can go through VMing and Sandboxing, but unless you're Public Enemy #1, or you're a complete retard, you'll be fine

Ayden Rivera

Depends on your hardware. What CPU do you have?

Nolan Clark

What CPU do you have?
i7-7700HQ

8 gb ram
I recommend dualbooting over using a VM
i wish, because of the cpu i can only use win10 took away her phone so she doesnt call her dad and its a pain in the ass, i only use it for my lewd games like AA2.

John Sanchez
John Sanchez

That CPU has VT-d so you should be able to use PCI pass through in your VM. Definitely worth doing instead of dual booting.

Chase Wright
Chase Wright

only windows 10
I feel incredibly sorry for your loss user. You haven't even tried installing win7?

Isaiah Edwards
Isaiah Edwards

You haven't even tried installing win7?
i tried, but some hardware didnt want to be detected at all, tried to force some drivers on win7, some manage to run others didnt, so i just gave up, installed mint cinnamon as my main OS and win10 for lewd vidya.
Moving to penguin OS was bound to happen, but i never though because of a fucking CPU, lesson learned.
That CPU has VT-d so you should be able to use PCI pass through in your VM
thats good to hear, so i guess Virtualbox is the program of choice?

Chase Gomez
Chase Gomez

They don't call it Wintel for nothing. Hardware would have needed a Stallman almost more than software.

Virtualbox is pretty idiot-proof and you should try it first. I remember some problems with PCI passthrough under Linux, but that was a while ago and according to virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#pcipassthrough it should be supported now.

Ryder Allen
Ryder Allen

Is that really popular and usable?

Why would you do that if it can likely be done with wine too?

[THE WINE COMMUNITY]
Kinda awkward to tell a bunch of other faggots, even anonymously, that you need help having your hgames running

Christian Walker
Christian Walker

Sure, that may be the case but on the other hand you might run into people who did manage to get it running and since the most info you are offering is your machine specs I don't see what would keep you.

Nicholas Taylor

Oh, quit being a pussy. Everyone's a degenerate on the Internet.

Sebastian Baker

Kinda awkward to tell a bunch of other faggots, even anonymously, that you need help having your hgames running

No it's not. How could it be? You're just a string of characters on a website detailing how to get something running. Grow a pair ffs.

Ian James

random shit in retroarch tfw might get to actually experience 10 player Saturn Bomberman before I die
sonic.exe next week

what problems do you have while WINE'ing?
steam.exe being an insufferable piece of shit and only working in xp mode, as always

what software company are you cursing for all eternity?
Valve. Where the fuck is the 64-bit client I'm sick of keeping all this legacy x86 bullshit installed why do I need a fucking printer server for a goddamn crippled package manager

Levi Lewis
Levi Lewis

Not going to get better if you just switch to windows light
Whats wrong with windows light?

Mason Butler
Mason Butler

Because it is still windows you are running but now with a crazy overhead. I am not saying that there is no use for a win VM but if you run it too often you might as well run it natively.

Adrian Gomez
Adrian Gomez

back when I dualbooted, I used to worry about having a Windows partition on my hard drive
so I got a Windows machine specifically only for games I can't get to run on my Linux laptop
now I worry about having Windows on my network

Logan Gomez

What's the most up-to-date Linux distro in terms of driver support and preinstalls for quick setup?

I'm an advance user, know how to compile and read code. Just want something fast on a new machine I'm building.

Looking to play and render games, likely Godot and Blender, streaming, P2P, and bunch of experiments. Please no SystemD. The machine will boot Windows 7 and XP on separate drives, but I do not object to WineHQ as a preinstall. Please, not too much bloat. I can do without an IDE just fine. I'll just install i3 or awesome. I can live without Steam like I've always have.

Was there some UI game loader thing, so you can just select games, and it auto boots and shuts down the engine or emulator like MAME? Might actually end up installing that for kids & events

Jose Myers
Jose Myers

Forgot to say: will be emulating Dolphin, PS3, and any of the above. IIRC Dolphin had an optimized fork, no? Ishiiruka is it?

Gabriel Myers
Gabriel Myers

if you hate systemd (i dont see the point) a lot, manjaro (you have to install openrc later) or slackware.

by the ui game loader, do you mean retroarch?

Justin Hughes
Justin Hughes

SystemD is going to cause many problems, and it is a constant vulnerability roller-coaster.

manjaro or slackware
Pros and Cons, and what does or doesn't come with? I assume you are leaning towards mGAMe for Manjaroo, no?

ui game loader
No, something you customize the loader's screenshot/videos samples and browse through it. It looked a lot like Stepmania/DDR but in 4x3 grids. When highlighting a game, it would slideshow fade screenshots or play the video&sound sample.
It was not DJL.

Jason Morales
Jason Morales

I just use Debian on everything as it's the most well-built and supported.
Please no SystemD
Debian with sysvinit-core. But it's not that bad other than for the bloat and journald's CPU burn. It's mainly an issue on embedded.

Chase Jenkins
Chase Jenkins

there's a few to point out, manjaro is more bleeding edge than slackware, manjaro is easier to install than slackware.

make sure to note that debian by default uses stable packages but can be modified to get the testing or unstable packages instead.

Josiah Ramirez
Josiah Ramirez

Switching to testing or unstable is a mistake if you want a system for real use and not playing around. It's like using preview builds of Windows for day to day use.
If you need something specific you can't wait for, I'd recommend using Debian backports just for that specific package. They're officially supported now for stretch (backports.debian.org).

Chase Brooks
Chase Brooks

The point is not starting from scratch, and making yet another distro. It's highly likely I may install retroarch for compatibility sakes, but I still prefer downloading source form the latest emulator's sites and compiling that.
The driver's and preinstalls should have implied that. Unless you know of a debian script/apt-get or distro like Manjaroo already preinstalled with basic drivers (legal or not) so I don't have to hunt everything down.

Personal use I use FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Android, and used to use Debian.
Just setting up a dev and gaming rig this time on an i5. Will disable ME as soon as my flasher gets here. The machine requires a separate Win7 and XP disk w/boot to test cross compiles.

Landon Reyes
Landon Reyes

I'm fine with either, considering the GPU is an RX 480, I want to try all 3 drivers. And I really don't mind switching boot images for all three. But if I target debian, I assume I have to stick with stable as that is what everyone will "support" coming publish date.
Debian backports
Mmm, I will be downloading the latest sources of Blender as I go. Godot will have to be a frozen candidate after release.

Obvs. I am emulating Andriod, so one of the new dev kits w/VM images will have be installed.

Jace Garcia
Jace Garcia

It sounds like you want to just fuck around rather than accomplish anything. But they do have an installer that includes all the non-free firmware.

Christian Powell
Christian Powell

and bunch of experiments
Thanks for your useful opinion. I wonder why people don't take Linux gaming seriously on Holla Forumsindex.html

Joshua Ross
Joshua Ross

Manjaro is dropping the openrc support so it's likely that it will break entirely at some point.

Logan Lee
Logan Lee

Update: The "loader" was called Lutris: lutris.net/
I guess people call it a game "manager", while the devs. call it a platform.
Colloquialism is a bitch.

Thanks for this link!
