While a lot of the games I play happen to have Linux ports, lots of those games have issues that don't exist on Windows.

Hyper Light Drifter can only load sound files 127 times before hardlocking the entire computer.

Northgard's map generation is bugged as all fuck, frequently causing crashes. The likelihood of crashing increases exponentially the larger you make the map.

Civ 5's graphics load textures extremely slowly, meaning any significant scrolling will make the game look like an N64 game for five seconds.

X3's launcher is fucking stupid in Linux, it literally wants you to plug in a controller to get past it.

I mean, I can play, but fuck, half of the reason I keep loading Factorio is because it just works.

most pc gamers don't even play games for sake of playing them. they just want to show off the performance of their pc which is why they obsess over fps.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

What is an acceptable use case for gnu/Linux? For general systems that use the Linux kernel, it seems really dumb to assume that they use gnu userland, c libs, etc. So in that use case it's not appropriate. The next use case is distributions, and I feel like it is the distribution creator to decide that. For instance, Ubuntu isnt even called Linux at all, it's just "Ubuntu". Or is that terrible ethically?

This whole thing seems like a lame popularity contest from the fsf and an ugly one too. Apologies if I'm beating a dead horse here, but it just seems that this convention is obviously flawed.

First off, holy shit, are you serious? This game has been going downhill since before Season 1. The patch that added Shen / Kennen / Akali was the real beginning of the end, but Xin/Vlad/Galio were the real nail in the coffin. I quit like a smart guy. My ex-gf got me back in sometime around Rumble's release because my IRL friends kept saying how they missed me and shit, so I played "with friends only" mainly so I could keep fucking this girl after coming over to play a few shitty twisted treelines with her and her brother. Then I quit again because it's pointless.
On top of that, they've redone so many heroes, redone the whole game, totally fucked wards, etc, etc, etc...it was never good, and you must be older than 18 to post here (I know, you're actually 20-22, so relax)
You could get it working on wine ez with some proper knowledge
You are precisely the target audience for the game, just use discord in a browser or dare I say it on your fucking phone, while you play on your PC. You seem like the kind of guy whose smartphone cost more than your computer anyway.

Problem on Linux, more than compatibility, is that it's kinda messy to have to work with WINE. It'd be nice if it was something like a virtual machine, where you have Windows where you can just do whatever the fuck you want in there, no problems with peripherals, nothing like that. Instead it's some weird shit where you have to use prefixes and download certain packages depending on which game you're playing, sometimes you don't even know.

Programs / games are written as code which contains instructions such as "draw a red rectangle on the screen". This is then all compiled as files containing just 00111010101 which aren't practical to understand/edit.

Windows is very secretive about the 00101011 but linux source code is freely available. Most games are written in windows because there's pressure from Microsoft, and is the larger platform.

Making a game for windows needs you to add windows-only specific stuff to the game which can't be used by linux (both very hard to handle the 010101 and microsoft would sue anyway).

There are very successful efforts to make windows programs work on linux (see winehq.org). When a program tries to use a windows-specific component, wine circunvents this by translating the call to a linux component.

So if you try to draw a red rectangle using directx, it will instead do roughly the same thing with vulkan (which is open and better).
But it isn't perfect and applications glitch. Especially newer ones, since microsoft writes newer closed components which try to make this as hard as possible.

Emulation is slow, which is why a wrapper like WINE is the main solution. WINE basically lets you play over 80% windows games, most without having to tweak anything.
You can run windows in a VM which is slower than emulation but ensures absolute compatibility. However, you can use a VM setup (GPU passthrough) to give the virtual machine your GPU, effectively getting to 90-95% actual performance without any input delay. But this is even more resource intensive.

>> No.66686848

>i wanted to play those but my intel card chokes on them, unfortunately.
It works on new intel GPU or AMD/Nvidia gaming GPU (I think the low end-midrange are okay). Also, it needs some single-core CPU performance.

Still, this should be mentioned in every thread. It's more or less the most well-developed and complex open sauce game. Definitely worth a try if you like RTS' and got a machine that can play it.

Why rewrite a dead game and risk being sued by Rockstar? I know they won't be able to do anything once they notice there's none of their code in it, but they'll try to delay its development once they notice.

Because you are more likely to succeed if have milestones. You start out developing a GTA III engine, slowly upgrade it to a GTA VC engine and then to a GTA SA engine. There is a reason Rockstar didn't make something on the scale of SA first, either.

Hello there! You seem to have used the term "open source".
The term "open source" was created by a group of people that did not want to be associated with the free software movement. When I say "free" software (which is one of the alternatives preferable to "open source"). It's not about price; in that case I would say "gratis", or "free as in free beer". It's about "freedom"! This is what the free software movement is fighting for.
So what is "free" software? Free software is any software that guarantees the user the four essential software freedoms:
> 0. Run the program as you wish.
> 1. Study the source code and change it so it does what you wish.
> 2. Redistribute exact copies of the program.
> 3. Distribute your modified version of the program.
Some people decided that they wanted to restrict the user; but being able to study and modify the "open source" code is not enough! This is directly hurting the cause of the free software movement because it takes away the sociological "freedom" aspect of free software and turns it into a technological one.
So for those reasons I ask that in the future you use the terms "free", "free/libre" or, if necessary "FLOSS" (short for "free/libre and open source"), though the latter should still be avoided.
This text is part of the public domain. It may be freely modified, distributed and otherwise used as the reader wishes.

That would be a good idea, but people who want this mostly just install wine regularly. Also, valve would have to manually support each game and a lot of games have their own tweaks. They could leave this to the community though.

Lies. Read http://landley.net/notes-2010.html#19-07-2010.

Basically the user would not notice anything, just more supported games individually tested by Valve with tweaks and settings done internally.
Especially older games should run under Linux well.

Sad that they gave up on SteamOS and Steam machines.

>Stallman's own Gnu/Hurd project failed to produce a usable clone.
This does not invalidate the contributions the GNU project and the FSF _have_ made over the past 3 1/2 decades.
>He's also tried to claim credit for the invention and preservation of "free software", which was the status quo before 1983
He didn't. What he did was be the first to formulate the idea of software freedom, as well as speak out against proprietary software.

Can't get literally the only "game" I want to play to work at all. Perhaps because I use SmartSteamEmu. Damn.

They didn't. They're still developing SteamOS and still want to move to Linux as a platform just so they aren't constricted to (((Microsoft))). They just removed steam machines from the front page as none of those were from valve.
