    Project mention: How to install Hedgemodmanager on Steam Deck as of November 2023 ? | /r/linux_gaming | 2023-11-09

    I've tried all of the known methods, the one using bottles:, the one using Steamtinkerlaunch: and the one that used to work but doesn't anymore: The bottles method worked a few weeks ago (although a lot of codes and mods didn't work) but doesn't seem to work anymore, the program doesn't seem to recognize the .yml configuration file provided in the guide anymore, I even tried installing the dependencies manually but the game (Sonic Frontiers) doesn't load the mod loader (the game launches but without mods), perhaps bottles doesn't use .yml files anymore ? The Steamtinkerlaunch method using Proton 7.0 also manages to install hedgemodmanager but once the mod loader is installed the game simply won't launch (I even tried providing mscore.dll but doesn't seem to make a difference). The method detailed on used to work but now doesn't anymore, probably because steamtinkerlaunch now also tries to install .net 40 and .net 48. I get an error along the lines of "error, couldn't load mscore.dll to display the correct error message, please reinstall. Net". I'm losing my mind over this. Does anyone of you have hedgemodmanager working on Steam Deck ? If so how did you do it ?

  • winesapOS

    winesapOS - Game with Linux anywhere, no installation required!

    Project mention: 5 years ago Valve released Proton forever changing Linux gaming | | 2023-08-21

    I run winesapOS[0] which is based on SteamOS and was able to repurpose an old Toshiba notebook for my kids, running Freddy Fish* and other games. Windows 10 doesn't run smoothly (even though it came with Windows 10) and I'm not going to run anything older than that.

    * Yes, ScummVM is available for Linux but the Steam Linux distribution included an old ScummVM which wasn't able to load some libraries. Running the Windows version through an compatibility layer was easier than modifying shell files to run the latest ScummVM through flatpak.

    Project mention: Ticks and Subticks | /r/GlobalOffensive | 2023-09-11

    The subtick architecture gives you more opportunities to provide the server with input. In the case of your game running at 300fps, the game will divide the framerate by the tickrate (64) which is 300 / 64 = 4,6. Rounding the number down gives you now 4 slots for input. The actual logic is a bit more complex and takes into account the last time input was sent, but we can ignore that here. Now you can send up to 4 inputs (for example, shooting) to the server that is handling the current tick. In addition, and this is the important part, every history entry also contains timing information at which fraction of the tick your input happened (it also contains information about your shooting position, fps and interp - see: - but it is unclear how much of that information is going to stay for subtick and how much is for debugging purposes).

  • steam-deploy

    Project mention: Sharing Saturday #461 | /r/roguelikedev | 2023-04-07

    Recently been doing a lot of bugfixing, playtesting, and setting up a linux build in order to get ready for a mid-April release. The most frustrating thing has been dealing with Steam's MFA. It's behavior is very inconsistent across environments, there's not much documentation, and now auth tokens are getting invalidated very quickly. I hope that someday Valve comes up with a better system for allowing automated systems to push builds.

    Project mention: New luxtorpeda-dev Client Release (Version 63) | /r/linux_gaming | 2023-04-20

    Switch to using Steam Linux Runtime - Sniper for the built engines. This provides newer tooling for builds, which should make future development easier, for example being able to build qt 5.15 and have gcc 10 available. The 100+ engines have been re-built. Note that previous clients should still work on the older soldier, but any new updates will only happen to sniper (this client and above). If you run into any issues with the engines, please open a new issue in the packages repo.
