        Does Diablo 2 Resurrected mods work on linux if you add a command line in the Blizzard launcher itself?

        This is a weird case because not even the main menu is the same between both versions.

      Poor OpenGL performance

      No multichannel audio support

      Their games just using some kind of proprietary OpenGL wrappers, why don't just allow of using proton at this point?

          Their games don't have native Vulkan renderer, just another proprietary wrapper. I would settle for vkd3d/dxvk at this point

          Out of the box it stutters badly and won't run at more than 60 fps. It gets better after you apply the fix from PCGW but it's still worse than the Windows version.

        Really? The native version works on my machine. It's also the native version that Valve verified for Steam Deck compatibility. Most ProtonDB reports seem to be saying the native version is fine too; they don't recommend switching to Proton. Really this seems like the dumbest example you could have picked.

          Do you have a 60Hz monitor?

          The reports are not saying it works fine. Many of them are the usual "runs kinda bad but I'll upvote anyway" cope.

          • 1 month ago

            So it runs badly at very high frame rates? Okay. I did run the game at 60 Hz last time I played it, and never imagined it would benefit from a higher frame rate because it's a 2-D pixel-graphics single-player casual indie game, but if it fails to run smoothly at 144 Hz or some other meme refresh rate then I guess that sucks. And no I didn't read every ProtonDB report, but I saw some reports claiming zero problems and I saw zero reports recommending Proton.

              The problem is if you run it on a high refresh rate monitor and enable vsync it stutters really badly. It's not like any normal game where it'll just run at stable 60 fps. The experience you get is more like unstable 30 fps.

              On Windows disabling vsync unlocks the framerate and makes it run mostly smooth (but still not perfect). The Linux version out of the box does not unlock the framerate and so it still manages to stutter as much as with vsync on. Applying the fix from PCGW unlocks the FPS like on Windows but for some reason it's still less smooth.

      What does this mean? The devs updated the game to run on Steam Deck while deliberately excluding other Linux machines?

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        probably the the persona devs made a fix for deck and didn't think of other linux machines, though it seems the file can be transferred (which makes the game work, at least partially) and i don't see any evidence it was malicious, cause devs can give the deck extra/changed files.

        id say its not a big deal unless the devs say they don't want Linux machines running the game, my guess is it was just a mistake or oversight.

          Oh wait, it's a file that gets downloaded only when installing to Steam Deck? I thought it was a file that only works on Steam Deck or something. I don't know whether that's better or worse.

        It means the nips are still braindead when it comes to PCs. They probably just tested it on the Deck and called it a day. Understandable considering none of the devs at Atlus probably even run an actual linux machine.

        It's not a Destiny 2 situation where the devs just outright want to spite Linux.

        Yes. Windows 7 has 15% more performance than Windows 10 / 11 in CS:GO as well. Not unknown.

          And to elaborate on that it's to do with security patches, fullscreen optimizations, windows timers (TSC, HPET etc.). All older source games run better on Windows 7.
          1709 is 8% less
          21H2 is 15% less
          Debloated or not, doesn't make a difference.

            It was just a guess anyway. Also, the maintainer of GE is also the maintainer of wine-staging or something along these lines, so I guess he prioritizes his project to bait patreon money and maybe lazily merges some stuff into staging.

Connected this hdd later with thousands media files precious to me and everything was read-only on it, showed that it's impossible to change permissions. I wasn't able to download anything on it, extract archives on it, etc. Tried googling, editing fstab file, chmod command but nothing worked.

            Are you on Mint 21 Vanessa? I'd like to use Mint but it doesn't have KDE Plasma. I really enjoyed using it on live-iso and yesterday for a few hours.

            >Is this in BIOS?
            It's a setting in Windows.

            Looks like this one but I can't be sure it will fix this issue and reinstall everything again just to check.
            Thanks, everyone, maybe later I'll try again.

              You don't need to reinstall. Just boot into a live ISO and check if you can use the drive there.

                I remember 100% that I was able to extract and copypaste files while using live-cd before installing. So it was a surprise that I wasn't able to do it after installing.

              I had this issue and it fixed it for me, as long as fstab is correct it should work

              I'm still on 20.3; when I first installed Mint, I think it was 18 or 19.

    back in the early 2000s people used to have a dual boot menu for linux/windows

    anyone know the name of the boot loader to select an OS, without going into bios every startup?

        They probably removed the indication of Linux support because of the EA Play thing which I'm guessing is Winblows exclusive. At least they didn't nuke the Linux port of the game (although, to be fair, it's probably one of those old ports that technically runs worse than translating the Winblows version to Vulkan using Proton).

      They probably aren't celebrating when there's still such a long way to go
