What's the state of Linux gaming? Has the Steam Deck finally pushed compatibility to usable levels where I can just install Mint and not have to tinker?

      Any game with an anti-cheat. Even frickin' Mutahar still uses windows for Rainbow six because the Anticheat straight up bans linux.

      But if you don't play shitty games like that that need an anticheat, you're fine.

        It's not any game with anti-cheat. There are games with anti-cheat that sent the email or ticked the box to have ti work with Linux. And those work. Mutahar has a video saying much.

            What do you think about the topic of AI and game development, because I heard for a few days that an AI can create entire games itself in 5 to 10 years, what do you think about that (also whether people will then be replaced..) ?

              In order for AI to program it would need to be correct 100% of the time. LLM generative AI does not and can not write large scale software. It works for images and at a basic level conversation because "close enough" is perfectly okay in that case.

    Good but still too much work to be comparable to Windows for the average user. I enjoy it and didn’t need to troubleshoot much after setting up Arch correctly but it’s not for everyone still. Mint is pretty much just install and go but you don’t get as up to date packages.

    Yeah, proton is pretty great. Proton GE is also really good. Only really have to create and edit a single file in the steam folder to get downloads to work. And soon, proton GE will work on non-steam games with umu.

                Why did you think this game wouldn't work? I don't get it.

                Your own garbage DB
                https://www.protondb.com/app/225300
                Everytime you die the game hard freezes and there's nothing you can do to unfreeze it. You can stop this from happening by loading the game before Lara dies but you need the reflexes for that! If you don't or you forget have fun killing the process through Steam Layout and relaunching the game 🙂

                Significant Bugs:
                Cutscenes are borked.

                He's just going to say your video is fake because muh ProtonDB. These guys always assume that every bug mentioned in every old compatibility report happens to everyone forever. Didn't work for some guy on Proton 7 a year ago, so you can't possibly be playing it.
                On that note, though, what are you using to run it? I haven't played the game yet, but I do have the Steam version in my account, and I'll probably want to try it eventually (after I finish the first game).

                If I concede that OP was probably thinking of Windows games (not that the original post will keep me from discussing DOSBox in any case), will you stop bleeding out your ass? I'm sorry that you think the existence of a free operating system is ruining your life, but this really isn't a big deal. I'll point out one more thing, though: The fact that a game was released for DOS doesn't preclude the use of a Windows """emulator""". DOSBox-powered games on Steam are games for Windows, as far as normies are concerned. Look at all the people on ProtonDB trying to play these games by running DOSBox for Windows through Proton and then reporting poor compatibility when they could just be using Boxtron. I'm not saying it's right, but people do run DOS games with Windows DOSBox on Linux using Proton.

    In other words, pick a game and there's a good chance that it will work perfectly, but everyone knows that certain online games will block Linux users and almost everyone knows that some game developers continue to insist on pointlessly using proprietary video codecs for cutscenes, so obviously some games will have problems or flat-out refuse to run.

                I don't care about that one post, because it was outside of the reply chain in which you called me a "moron" for not interpreting "Tomb Raider" (singular) as "Tomb Raider 2". In case you're still confused, here's how the conversation went:

                Try to play Tomb Raider, you fricking lying piece of crap.

                >Try to play Tomb Raider, you fricking lying piece of crap.

                I already did, years ago, with DOSBox. You know Linux has DOSBox, right? The Steam version comes with the Windows version of DOSBox, so I just used Boxtron to swap it out for the Linux version of DOSBox Staging.
                There's also an open-source engine for the game.

                That's why you're stupid.
                I don't care that you mentioned the classic Tomb Raider series as a whole, in another post that I hadn't read. When I mentioned old games, you called me a liar and told me to try Tomb Raider (singular, no number, implying first game); when I told you I already had, you called me a moron for not reading everything you ever posted on Ganker. You are unhinged.
                But ultimately, none of this matters, because I play lots of old games on Linux and they just work. Tell me more about how they all broke on the 3rd level, so I can laugh at you.

                Nothing in the original post — certainly not the word "compatibility" — implies that the discussion is exclusively about Windows "emulation". At best, you could claim that the sentence about compatibility implies that the scope of the discussion is limited to non-native games, but in that case, DOS emulation is still relevant because DOS is not Linux.

                >Windows EMULATION does not work properly.
                Wine isn't an emulator, it is a win32 compatibility solution, and it works exactly the same as the win32 compatibility solution on NT.
                The fact that there are active bug trackers for Wine / Proton speaks to the fact that it is being actively maintained and all the burden isn't being put on developers or users.
                Meanwhile, Microsoft's win32 compatibility layer is abandoned, frequently breaks, and Microsoft is on their way to retiring it and replacing it with a solution that doesn't work for games but is good enough for business.

                Which is exactly how they handled it with DOS, and why DOSbox took over DOS gaming.

                By that definition NT is emulating as well because it is not the platform where win32 originated.

                In technical circles we tend to use a definition that can be summarized as
                Re-implementing APIs to run software compiled for the same hardware is a compatibility layer.
                Emulators allow running software compiled for different hardware.

                Actually true, that's why it's called the win32 SUBSYSTEM. You can call that emulation if you want to. It depends on Microsoft re-using source code or reimplementing it/emulating it.

                The point is there is no criticism of Wine, that does not equally apply to the win32 subsystem for NT.
                Both are compatibility solutions for running software on a different platform.

                The situation today for win32 is no different than the situation DOS gaming was in before DOSbox took over.
                Microsoft makes less money from gaming on Windows, than Valve makes just from Linux users.
                As a result Valve is investing in game support, Microsoft is not.

                May I quote my favorite site, which some troony janny banned, because it made Linux*ers seethe?

                There's no guarantee whatsoever that your system will (re)boot successfully after GRUB (bootloader) or kernel updates - sometimes even minor kernel updates break the boot process (except for Windows 10 - but that's a new paradigm for Microsoft). For instance Microsoft and Apple regularly update ntoskrnl.exe and mach_kernel respectively for security fixes, but it's unheard of that these updates ever compromised the boot process. GRUB updates have broken the boot process on the PCs around me at least ten times. (Also see compatibility issues below).

                inux servers might be a lot less secure than ... Windows servers, "The vast majority of webmasters and system administrators have to update their software manually and test that their infrastructure works correctly".

                Wow, you are very fast at reading.

                This article is bollocks! Linux works for me/for my grandpa/for my aunt/etc.
                Hey, I love when people are saying this, however here's a list of Linux problems which affect pretty much every Linux user.
                Out of the box neither Mozilla Firefox nor Google Chrome use video decoding and output acceleration in Linux (which is a hell to set up in many cases), thus youtube clips will drain your laptop battery a lot faster than e.g. in Windows. Addendum: in 2022 hardware video decoding acceleration can be manually enabled in Firefox and Google Chromium (not Google Chrome) for Intel and AMD users with appropriate hardware.
                Keyboard shortcut handling for people using local keyboard layouts is broken (this bug is now 16 years old). Not everyone lives in English-speaking countries. This doesn't affect Wayland but Wayland has its own share of critical usability issues.
                Keyboard handling in X.org is broken by design - when you have a pop-up or an open menu, global keyboard shortcuts/keybindings don't (GTK) work (QT). This doesn't affect Wayland.
                There's no easy way to use software which is not offered by your distro repositories, especially the software which is available only as sources. For the average Joe, who's not an IT specialist, there's no way at all.
                You don't play games, do you? Linux still has very few native AAA games: for the past three years no new AAA titles have been made available. Most Linux games on Steam are Indies. To be fair you can now run thousands of Windows games through DirectX to Vulkan/OpenGL translation using DXVK however it's not perfect and anti-cheat protection usually doesn't work in Linux. People using Linux have been banned for playing multi-user Windows games because under Linux it's near impossible to verify that your environment hasn't been tampered with.

                icrosoft Office is not available for Linux. LibreOffice often has major troubles properly opening, rendering or saving documents created in Microsoft Office (alas, it's a standard in the business world). Besides, LibreOffice has a drastically different user interface and many features work differently. Also native Windows fonts are not available in Linux which often leads to formatting issues.
                Several crucial Windows applications are not available under Linux: Quicken, Adobe authoring products (Photoshop, Audition, etc.), Corel authoring products (CorelDraw and others), Autodesk software (3ds Max, Autocad, etc.), serious BluRay/DVD authoring products, professional audio applications (CuBase, SoundForge, etc.).
                In 2023 there's still no alternative to Windows Network File Sharing (network file sharing that is easily configurable, discoverable, encrypted and password protected). NFS and SSHFS are two lousy totally user-unfriendly alternatives. SAMBA is there but under many desktop environments there's no simple GUI to configure it.
                Linux doesn't have a reliably working hassle-free fast native (directly mountable via the kernel; FUSE doesn't cut it) MTP implementation. In order to work with your MTP devices, like ... Linux based Android phones you'd better use ... Windows or MacOS X. Android-File-Transfer-Linux works near perfectly but it's not included out of the box by most distros.
                Too many things in Linux require manual configuration using text files: NVIDIA Optimus switchable graphics, custom display refresh rates, multiseat setups, USB 3G/LTE/4G modems, various daemons' configuration, and advanced audio setups to name a few.
                Linux is secure UEFI boot mode unfriendly, if you're going to use any out of mainline tree drivers, e.g. NVIDIA, VirtualBox, VMWare, proprietary RAID, new Wi-Fi adapters, etc. etc. etc. This is a really bad situation which no Linux distro wants to address.

                Wow, you are very fast at reading.

                This article is bollocks! Linux works for me/for my grandpa/for my aunt/etc.
                Hey, I love when people are saying this, however here's a list of Linux problems which affect pretty much every Linux user.
                Out of the box neither Mozilla Firefox nor Google Chrome use video decoding and output acceleration in Linux (which is a hell to set up in many cases), thus youtube clips will drain your laptop battery a lot faster than e.g. in Windows. Addendum: in 2022 hardware video decoding acceleration can be manually enabled in Firefox and Google Chromium (not Google Chrome) for Intel and AMD users with appropriate hardware.
                Keyboard shortcut handling for people using local keyboard layouts is broken (this bug is now 16 years old). Not everyone lives in English-speaking countries. This doesn't affect Wayland but Wayland has its own share of critical usability issues.
                Keyboard handling in X.org is broken by design - when you have a pop-up or an open menu, global keyboard shortcuts/keybindings don't (GTK) work (QT). This doesn't affect Wayland.
                There's no easy way to use software which is not offered by your distro repositories, especially the software which is available only as sources. For the average Joe, who's not an IT specialist, there's no way at all.
                You don't play games, do you? Linux still has very few native AAA games: for the past three years no new AAA titles have been made available. Most Linux games on Steam are Indies. To be fair you can now run thousands of Windows games through DirectX to Vulkan/OpenGL translation using DXVK however it's not perfect and anti-cheat protection usually doesn't work in Linux. People using Linux have been banned for playing multi-user Windows games because under Linux it's near impossible to verify that your environment hasn't been tampered with.

                A personal nitpick which might be very relevant nowadays: under XFCE/Gnome/KDE there's no way to monitor your BlueTooth devices battery level on screen at all times (e.g. using a systray applet). There are scripts like this but they are inaccessible for most people out there as they require console kung-fu and they may stop working at any time.

                If I concede that OP was probably thinking of Windows games (not that the original post will keep me from discussing DOSBox in any case), will you stop bleeding out your ass? I'm sorry that you think the existence of a free operating system is ruining your life, but this really isn't a big deal. I'll point out one more thing, though: The fact that a game was released for DOS doesn't preclude the use of a Windows """emulator""". DOSBox-powered games on Steam are games for Windows, as far as normies are concerned. Look at all the people on ProtonDB trying to play these games by running DOSBox for Windows through Proton and then reporting poor compatibility when they could just be using Boxtron. I'm not saying it's right, but people do run DOS games with Windows DOSBox on Linux using Proton.

          Linux isn't competition for windows because nobody is fricking using it. If you linux trannies actually wanted to compete with windows, you'd make a worthy replacement for the system anyone can use as their main OS on a everyday basis. But all these years later it's still a meme system for gays.

          >it's not popular
          this means it fails at literally everything and only morons want to "use it", if you can even call it that

          That's a simple fact.

          >seething and coping intensifies
          I use Linux to play old games and it works. I don't care about any of this other shit. I never begged you to use it; I don't care if it "succeeds" beyond running my games; I don't need it to compete with Windows. Reiterating "but it's not popular!!" four more times won't make me care either.

    No reason to use Linux, unless you're a privacy or customization schizo. As long as you debloat/optimize windows and block updates (which takes a whole 5 min), there isn't a reason to switch. Best part is that everything works out of the box and you don't have to read some obscure forum posts to get some old game to work.

    The shortest explanation is that everything on steam should run out of the box. Sometimes you'll have issues with video codecs and you'll need proton-ge for that(iirc the instructions for how to apply it are on its github page). For non-steam games lutris will generally handle them. A few titles explicitly make it impossible to play them on linux thought, usually they're various multiplayer games.

    Yes, but why use loonix if you don't want to tinker? You still need to pass some environment variables, for example to enable HDR or RTX, and every now and then you have to fix wineprefix. Though admittedly that happened for me only two times so far, from probably a good 50+ games i've tried, Gothic had no musis and Recettear wouldn't run without winetricking around.

    Proton got to the point where you pretty much don't have to tinker, and compatibility list is so long that you might as well assume that every game will run in one click, but eh, linux itself is a tinkering OS

          utter hogwash. the purest expression of libertarianism is present in principles like the NAP which elevate the individual to the level of the corporation and replace the fundamental language of society with the language of corporations. in a libertarian world, everything is owned- that is to say, closed-source and proprietary- and individuals only cooperate insofar as they do not share these rights with others. in contrast, licenses like the GPL leave the products of individual devs as the shared domain of the users, and therefore, not owned by anyone.
          so, it is logically coherent that linus would be a communist, rather than being contradictory as you claim.

            That's not true at all. Many licenses have very stringent enforcement of copyright, GPL especially. Just because the software is free does not mean it isn't owned by its creator. Even cuck licenses still keep copyright. Most FOSS authors do not discard their own copyright protections explicity or release software as open domain, so they still own their own code.

    For me the deal breaker is how annoying it is to install shit. On windows you just download the exe and click a few times.
    On Linux THEORETICALLY you should be able to install anything through a single command except that's not true most of the time because the thing you want to install is not in any repo so you need to jump through whatever hoops the devs wanted you to jump this time.

    For decades, Linux has always been playing a game of catch up. The reason why it's so good now is entirely due to stagnation and even degradation. Linux has caught up to Windows 7 and really doesn't have too much more to chase since everything after Windows 7 has been really bad. We just need Wayland to get better and Linux will be perfect.

    I'm having horrible problems trying to mod Steam Fallout 4. Nothing seems to work, at all. I could use any hints and tips.

    Vortex Mod Manager over Lutris, installed INTO the Wine prefix from Steam: A bit of a hassle, doesn't recognize stuff right away, stuff needs to be set up manually like the Staging folder on the same drive. SEEMS to work, it says "Enabled" next to the mod, but starting the game from the "Play" button in the top left does nothing. Starting the game from Steam ... okay it won't start anymore lol, guess I destroyed it. But the mods wouldn't work.

    Mod Manager 2 wasn't a big help, either.
    When I try to install from Github, I get:
    >A prefix for the selected game could not be found. Make sure you have followed the instructions on creating a clean prefix
    When I try to install from the Lutris website, I get:
    >Could not find 'Fallout 4' in your Steam library

    I'm currently suspecting that these errors were displayed because I tinkered with the Steam/Proton-created prefix before. But I kept choosing new Proton versions (Steam game > Properties > Compatibility). And it doesn't explain why the fricking "EASY-TO-USE" installer doesn't even FIND FO4, even though it's clearly there, I even added it to my Lutris library just to prove a point.

    One alternative might be Protontricks but I never tried that.

    Any hints, tips, ideas would be extremely appreciated.

      If it needs to use a dll hook to inject the mod(s) you need to use protontricks.
      1) Select game
      2) Select default prefix
      3) Run winecfg
      4) Go to libraries tab
      5) Type the name of the dll to override (in my example, winhttp.dll is the proxy/injector) and click Add, Apply, then close out of everything and it should work just as it does on Windows

        That sounds kinda promising but please slow down, I'm not sure where you're at. My current configuration is the following:

        Fallout 4 GOTY installed over Steam.

        What doesn't work:
        1. Vortex Mod Manager in Lutris, pointed at the Proton-created Prefix from Steam-FO4
        2. Mod Organizer 2 (Lutris) doesn't install for reasons I mentioned (but don't understand)

        What Wine CFG are you opening there? The only thing I currently run over Wine (Lutris) is the Vortex thing that doesn't work.

        What dll file are you referring to?

          When you're saying "it doesn't work" you need to give a lot more detail. From your original post it sounded like Vortex was working but the mods themselves weren't.
          I guessed from that the mods were installing some kind of script extender or perhaps using some dlls to inject stuff into the game (ENB?). In which case you need to work out which dlls you need to add overrides for. The issue could still be something else entirely, it's just the dll override thing catches people out a lot.

            About Vortex: I installed it via Lutris. I said "Add game installed locally", pointed it to the install exe and the Steam-auto-created prefix for Fallout 4.

            Run it, it installed. Changed to executable to the freshly created vortex.exe deep within the Steam-created prefix.

            Run Vortex. Locating FO4 from within Vortex was problematic because I had to go to the Z: drive and click my way through there, but .steam (hidden folder) wouldn't appear in the Home folder. So, in Linux, I simply created a folder link to the Steam folder, and that seemed to solve it, I could click that link in Vortex to point it to the FO4 install directory.

            Next problem was that the Staging folder had to be on the same partition as the installed game (Z:), so I created a folder somewhere for this purpose.

            Of couse I had to install dotnet and I think C++ stuff, but that went by seemingly without an issue.

            Currently, for testing purposes, there is only one (1) mod installed, it's a fricking tree replacer with zero requirements itself: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/15421

            It says "Enabled", see screenshot.

            When I click on the little "Play" icon in the top left corner of Vortex, nothing happens.

            When I start FO4 from Steam, I can load into the game no problem, but the mod obviously hasn't loaded because the trees all look the same.

            (Honestly I'm thinking about trying out a pirated version that runs over Lutris, I can easy as frick install Vortex into that same prefix and no issues, I did this with Baldur's Gate 3 to great success. Version of the torrent is even the same as Steam, v1.10.163.0. But I've been at this shit for over 30 hours now and kinda wanna defeat Steam.)

            Also I'm suspicious that every time I choose a different Proton version in Steam > Compatibility, I break something, lol. Maybe that's the issue. But I'm lost, I tried so many goddamn things I can't even remember them all, especially in what order I did them.

            Thank you for your time.

              It probably would be easier just to use the GOG version of FO4, last time I modded Skyrim it was far easier just avoiding Steam and using the GOG version.
              It does sound like the issue may be Lutris and steam not using the same wine prefix, I believe you are supposed to load the same wine prefix in Lutris as what Steam is running.

                >It does sound like the issue may be Lutris and steam not using the same wine prefix
                Yeah, the thing is, within the Steam-created wine prefix (/steamapps/compatdata/377160/pfx/drive_c), where the game data should be, there's a little file called "libraryfolders.vdf", only 149 bytes in size, that's basically just pointing to the ACTUAL install directory within the "normal"/usual Steam folders (/steamapps/common) that you would also find on Windows.
                I assumed that would be a problem, but since Vortex at least "pretended" to install mods, and since nothing popped up in that particular directory – hell, even in the correct install dir I found a file saying "this folder is managed by Vortex" or something similar –, I don't really assume this was an issue.

                With the GOG installers you just won't need to juggle multiple prefixes or the annoying Steam DRM, it'll just be the one prefix.
                Lutris has good support for GOG installers, just click install and off it goes.
                Some are native (penguin icon) others will use wine (Windows icon).

                >It does sound like the issue may be Lutris and steam not using the same wine prefix
                Yeah, the thing is, within the Steam-created wine prefix (/steamapps/compatdata/377160/pfx/drive_c), where the game data should be, there's a little file called "libraryfolders.vdf", only 149 bytes in size, that's basically just pointing to the ACTUAL install directory within the "normal"/usual Steam folders (/steamapps/common) that you would also find on Windows.
                I assumed that would be a problem, but since Vortex at least "pretended" to install mods, and since nothing popped up in that particular directory – hell, even in the correct install dir I found a file saying "this folder is managed by Vortex" or something similar –, I don't really assume this was an issue.

                But honestly, who knows...

                You say GOG-version – I didn't know GOG offered compatibility tools for Linux? Or what do you mean?

                Oh but to avoid confusion, I did everything in my power to point Lutris/Vortex to the same wine prefix. I did it specifically and consciously.

                But I think Proton is just "different" in enough ways that it doesn't work with a wine-emulated Vortex through Lutris. That's the butt of the issue.

                I might google Protontricks later, to get a mod manager running that's compatible with Proton. I think there might be a solution somewhere.

                But for now, I'm torrenting FO4... And trying the "both things over Lutris" approach. Frick this garbage.

                One other tip I'll give if you go the Lutris route, if you ever need to run a mod installer or patch or something else on top of an already installed game, use this option to run it inside the wine prefix for that game and it should Just Work.

                Yesss I used that before on other games to install C++ stuff, I also tried to install Fraps once but no matter what I did, it wouldn't work. Can live without it, though. That wasn't an issue I'd whine about on Ganker after being stuck for 30+ hours.

      If it needs to use a dll hook to inject the mod(s) you need to use protontricks.
      1) Select game
      2) Select default prefix
      3) Run winecfg
      4) Go to libraries tab
      5) Type the name of the dll to override (in my example, winhttp.dll is the proxy/injector) and click Add, Apply, then close out of everything and it should work just as it does on Windows

      Also worth noting that this is much easier in lutris because you can just do it in the game config and not jump through as many hoops.

        Also worth noting the reason it's like this is because DLLs are basically EXEs and thus a security nightmare even on Windows.

        lol, I simply have too many old games that have specific Windows mods to tweak them to my liking. I have a mod to make Jill more blue in REmake, will that carry over properly? I have Substance of Subsistence mod for MGS2, can I easily do that without following some headache tutorial? As for HDR I'm not only talking about official HDR games, I also run ALL my older games, emulators included, upconverted to HDR tone mapping using either SpecialK or AutoHDR. That sounds like a whole bunch of converters and wrappers and shit I'd have to relearn and it's not worth it just to have a more customizable OS. So yeah, that's what "my gaming needs" means. Surprise, "hur hur zoomer" doesn't apply to everyone you disagree with.

    If you're going to swap from windows to linux FOR GAMING don't use a shit distro like mint, bite the bullet and get something arch based (but not arch itself unless you're built different) like endeavour so you can have bleeding edge updates. SteamOS is Arch based, so by using an arch based distro you can better ensure best performance and replicate steamOS specific changes/fixes with zero fuss. Do that and learn how to use your package manager properly and you'll have everything you need.

        I'm an Arch user but it's still fair criticism - it's not always smooth. For gaming specifically, it's either put up with that or you don't get the best results. It's the situation of sudden active development in the space necessitating this. Other distros may get the benefits eventually, but it's less prioritized there, so for now this is what you've got. If you want an arguably good gaming experience NOW and not in like, two years maybe, gotta use arch based shit.

              I'm not sure but the linuxKernel package set is huge and I see there's some discussion about it on the NixOS discourse. It shouldn't be too hard to use an overlay for it anyways(I'm assuming it's a compile time option).

    "I... I use linux because I CARE about m-my freedom" cries the transexual woman, as he opens chrome to browse the internet. "my superior intellect is what allows me to properly use this- Oh everything crashed, I... I'll have to tinkera bit..."
    The poor specimen proceeds to spend hours messing with configurations files, and troubleshooting with the help of his phone.
    He is fulfilled, for he has his freedom and can finally feel like he is accomplishing something with his life. Or so he tells himself.
    After spending the whole night doing nothing in particular, the man who pretends to be a woman looks at his monitor and lets out a heavy, satisfied sigh. "Heh, take this pajeets... I have the better performance..."
    His games run at 62fps instead of 59. A staggering difference. Truly, a victory for penguinz of doom everywhere.

                That makes zero sense.
                If the emulator was working perfectly, it wouldn't even be able to figure out that it was Linux.

                Instead the anti-cheat tries to do its anti-cheat job, and fails because Linux actively blocks anti-cheats.

          Microsoft at its height couldn't be assed to support games in the DOS compatibility subsystem for NT. What makes you think they have the experienced developers, or budget to support games today on the win32 compatibility subsystem for NT?

            That's not accurate.

            Windows NT has a Native API for kernel communication, but regular Windows software uses win32, which is the regular API to write Windows software.

            Windows NT has a win32 subsystem, an OS/2 subsystem and a POSIX subsystem.
            Therefore the actual regular native API for Windows NT is also win32, and thus it's not actually emulation, but native.

            Linux on the other hand tries to translate win32 API into the Linux shit lord API, which makes it emulation.

                It is, you moronic dumb ass.
                Look up how the first N64 emulator emulated N64 to make N64 software working.
                That was high level emulation, which means taking the high level calls of the software and trying to execute these by calling win32/DirectX apis.
                And that's emulation as well.

              >Windows NT has a Native API for kernel communication
              The Linux kernel also has some features specifically intended for use by Wine. This does not elevate the win32 compatibility subsystem to native.

              >regular Windows software uses win32, which is the regular API to write Windows software.
              True, but that API originated on Windows, not NT. Microsoft's inability to force developers to any newer APIs over the years does not change the fact that win32 is not native to NT.

              >Windows NT has a win32 subsystem, an OS/2 subsystem and a POSIX subsystem.
              >Therefore the actual regular native API for Windows NT is also win32,
              Total non-sequitor. The existence of other compatibility subsystems at the same level as win32 proves that NT simply has no native API.

              Your argument is nothing but special pleading about why a shitty non-standard VMS clone, is somehow better than POSIX which completely dominates every other computing category, and will soon take PC Gaming.
              I'm not even sure what point you're trying to make. That we should all just sit by and let Microsoft tank PC Gaming again due to their indifference?
              They have proven before they have no interest in maintaining game support or performance. Which is why DOSbox now rules DOS gaming.

                Doesn't matter, the native Linux API is not win32.

                For WIndows NT and onwards native Windows software is written using win32, there is no other Windows API available, therefore it's not actually emulation.

                So if I make a box which despite my best efforts is only good for playing SNES games, but isn't actually an SNES, does that mean that it is not actually an emulator?

                >there is no other Windows API available
                Microsoft's failures to get developers off win32 does not make win32 native to NT.

                Linux has a compatibility layer for running win32 software which is actively maintained for PC gaming by Valve.
                NT has a compatibility layer for running win32 software which is abandoned for gaming by Microsoft.
                Really, what does your argument even aimed at gaining?

                So if Gabe Newell, one of the original Microsofties who was interested in win32 as a platform for PC Gaming, releases a box with the purpose of running win32 games, does that make win32 native to it?
                Why does Microsoft, a corporation with none of the original staff, have more claim to win32 than the actual person who originally championed it?

                That is true, but it has nothing to do with whether win32 is 'native' on NT.
                It only means that Microsoft has failed to get developers to move on from the legacy environment.

                If I run a game using win32+Vulkan+Steam Audio+Steam Input on Steam Deck, and then try to run it on Windows 9x it would also not work.

                If I were for instance to make my SNES box running a modified BSNES that provided enhanced features to games that wanted to implement them, where those games would no longer work on actual SNES hardware. Would that make my modified BSNES no longer an emulator?

                Only because all of Microsoft's attempts to replace it over the last 25 years failed.

                NT with win32 is exactly like that 'better' SNES, just like the hypothetical games written for it that won't work on the original platform are exactly like modern win32 games.
                Ultimately NT's win32 compatibility layer will have as little claim to modern PC gaming, as NT's DOS compatibility layer has to the previous generation of PC gaming.

                There are various types of emulation.
                A VM for example may have to emulate the CPU as well, but doesn't do that when the native CPU is the CPU that is to be emulated.

                Piracy is literally armed robbery.
                That's the definition of that word.
                Remember pirates?
                That's criminals, who robbed other ships and stole their goods.
                So saying piracy wouldn't mean theft is moronic. In fact it's worse than theft.

        ultimately a semantic argument, who cares. By your own definitions windows is also emulating windows

        That makes zero sense.
        If the emulator was working perfectly, it wouldn't even be able to figure out that it was Linux.

        Instead the anti-cheat tries to do its anti-cheat job, and fails because Linux actively blocks anti-cheats.

        Wine and shit basically do nothing to really hide you're using a linux system, and it's not really in their use case to fake some ring zero shit, because it's not a VM (actual emulation :^))

                Linux tries to emulate Windows through win32.
                Windows software is written using win32, therefore it's native.

                Yes, to Windows, a platform that hasn't actually had a release in 25 years.
                NT is not Windows no matter what Microsoft's marketing department days.

                NT is to Windows what MacOS X is to Classic MacOS.
                A new OS, that may run the same software, but that has nothing in common with the original.

                The difference is that Apple provided modern native APIs that developers adopted moving on from the legacy platform.
                Microsoft also tried to provide modern native APIs for NT, and developers ignored them.

        If you tried to install stuff and you still got that error you didn't actually install it properly, wine doesn't automatically load .dlls from folder like windows. Use lutris, it's simpler than adding overrides manually, and it comes packaged with DXVK.

        You lot were correct I didn't install correctly. Thank you.

        You would get points if there was a separate Windows NT API, to write software in, but there isn't.
        The common API to write software for both is win32, therefore it's the native API, therefore it's not emulation.

        Disabling it in the gui, or config, doesn't disable it. Something else causes the acceleration

        What's mouse acceleration? And why does thee Linux cabal seek to force it upon us.

        Mouse acceleration means your sensitivity changes depending how fast you move your cursor. For a trackpad, it's fine. For a mouse, you typically don't want this. There are scenarios were mouse acceleration is good for gaming, but that's with extremely details tools. The OS acceleration is always trash.

      Because majority software and made for windows and minority ever bothers porting to Linux. When software is made for Linux, see every popular emulator and fan games like Sonic Robo Blast 2, It's extremely comfortable. As you would expect. And much of it the strife isn't even necessary. Anti-cheats have Linux compatibility developers just don't enable them. Programs like RPGmakerMV can export to to Linux, devs just don't bother. Pretty much all of these issues with Linux are a self sustaining cycle. If lInux had more market share, software would be ported to it, WINE wouldn't even be needed. But Linux has low market share,It is raising though, developers don't support the platform, consumers complain about lack of support and don't use platform, developers don't support because lack of users, repeat. And much of that is the fault of Microsoft's anti-competitive practices too.
