What do you use for key rebinding in games?

I’ve just switched over from Windows to Linux for my daily driver in the last few weeks, and after the initial learning curves everything seems pretty solid. The only thing I really, really need for some games is the ability to rebind keys that the game itself doesn’t allow. Examples would be Orcs Must Die 1 (no rebinding at...

monstoor,

I use ESDF for movement

Yikes! However, back in the day I remember using zx*? for movement on the BBC Micro :-)

Has anyone gotten a game or account ban using Linux with Lutris or Heroic Games Launcher?

I built a PC for the family yesterday, and I’m hoping to get away with going 100% Linux. What makes me a little nervous is that Epic Games, GOG, battle.net, EA store, etc don’t officially support Linux. If I try using Lutris, or Heroic Games Launcher, or something similar to use those platforms, is there a chance my account...

monstoor,

Not here. I’ve been playing Ghostwire: Tokyo for a while now thanks to the Epic giveaway. The only issue I had was when I was setting up the wine prefix and the Denuvo DRM decided that I had installed the game enough times for today!

monstoor,

What happens if you manually create a wine prefix and launch the game through wine from the command line?

monstoor,

I have been using TW (and its predecessors) for around 17 years and have no major complaints at all! KDE Plasma is my preferred desktop and TW comes with that option as a default. Wayland is available but still has a few niggles with KDE Plasma in my experience.

TW will play both indie and mainstream games with no problem and comes with many repos of up-to-date packages. CoolerControl is a good app for setting up your Kraken if necessary. Your GPU should work out-of-the-box.

TW supports Secure Boot and should detect it when setting up. My advice for installation is to create a bootable USB stick with the network install version of TW and go from there. The GUI allows you to select a default installation or set things up just how you like them.

Let me know if you have any questions!

monstoor,

Happy Tumbleweed user here, since 2006!

Would you dare to download pirated versions of Linux software?

Lately I have been playing with VMWare, mostly because all my life I have been a Virtualbox user but lately I have been having some problems like the screen looks blurry and the system is not very responsive, and I am massively surprised by the fluidity of VMWare, surely Qemu is similar but I have not tried it....

monstoor,

As with any ‘yarr!’ software, you should be downloading it from a trusted source (cs.rin, rutracker, jc141, IRC etc.), then scan it with something like clamav. Remember that wine alone will not restrict any malicious code as it has the same access as your user.

Personally, I have yet to meet a malicious Linux file in any native yarr! downloads but that does not mean that they aren’t out there. Just make sure that you use a trusted source.

Finally, if you are in doubt then don’t install it!

monstoor,

There are some slightly dated wine results here.

Proton reports for the Steam version are here.

Please detail how you attempted to run or install the game, with output.

monstoor,

Compiled it on my OpenSUSE Tumbleweed system last week. As with the author of the Ubuntu article: I’m rubbish at the game but it compiled and executed just fine!

Baldur's Gate 3 Black screen then crashes

I’m trying to run Baldurs.Gate.3.GOG.Rip-InsaneRamZes on Steam Deck.I tried both on Lutris with various runners (in this moment I set it on lutris-GE-Proton8-13…) and Steam as a non Steam game with various Proton versions as well (mainly 8 and Expermiental).In any case I got a black screen of the duration of 1 second...

monstoor,

I’ve been working with the RUNE version, but I have it launching and working successfully from Lutris and command line using the following:

  1. wine-staging 8.13
  2. wine prefix with dxvk, vkd3d and vcrun2022
  3. install windowsdesktop-runtime-6.0.11-win-x64.exe into wine prefix

Hope this helps.

monstoor,

HI. Wine-staging should be in your distro’s repos. Install that and it should appear as an option in Lutris. With regard to winetricks: again it should be in your distro’s repos. There is also an option in Lutris to specify using your installed version of winetricks. Finally, yes, dotnetdesktop6 is only for the launcher. Cheers!

monstoor,

I was more thinking about trying wine-staging specifically, rather than Proton, as they do have differences. On my system BG3 didn’t work with Proton but did work once I switched to wine-staging 8.13. Of course YEMV!

monstoor,

Yes, the first part of the config file reads as follows: “{“account_tracker_service_last_update”:“13334489856807897”,“alternate_error_pages”:{“backup”:true},“announcement_notification_service_first_run_time”:“13334506503682677”,“autocomplete”:{“retention_policy_last_version”:108},“browser”:{“has_seen_welcome_page”:false,“window_placement_popup”:{“bottom”:429,“fullscreen”:false,“left”:4,“maximized”:false,“right”:696,“top”:28,“work_area_bottom”:1170,“work_area_left”:0,“work_area_right”:1920,“work_area_top”:0}},”

I’ve tried changing the window size fields to other values but this seems to make absolutely no difference at all. Alt+Enter has the same effect as I have previously described.

The game appears to be programmed using javascript.

Is this about *Linux* gaming?

Half serious question because I’ve been browsing this for a while, but, is this /c/ really about Linux gaming? Most if not every post is about Steam, Proton, Windows games, and Windows game companies. Feels more like /c/windowsgamingonlinux to me, which I’m not contra to but, I feel it deprives some naming space (good names...

monstoor,

My wife actually loves playing KPatience! I’ve tried to get her on to slightly more meaty games but sometimes it’s the simple ones that win people over :-)

monstoor,

You can talk about that in c/linuxcracksupport though!

monstoor,

I will check that setting, thanks.

monstoor,

No, it still didn’t work. I’ve decided to move on to some other games for the time being!

monstoor,

I’ll give it another go one day :-)

monstoor,

I’ve just been trying out the git version compiled with nile support. Looking good so far!

monstoor,

It's in this database. A couple of years ago, the game was working quite well with a Denuvo-less exe, but I haven't tried it for quite a while.
