  • Steam Play's Proton 5.0-3 Released With Support For Metro Exodus Direct3D 12 Mode

    CodeWeavers working under contract for Valve on their Wine downstream Proton is out with a new update to their Proton 5.0 series.

    Proton 5.0-3 is out as the newest release on their heavily patched Wine 5.0 based software for allowing countless Windows games to run smoothly under Linux. With Proton 5.0-3, Metro Exodus should be running nicely with its Direct3D 12 mode. Metro Exodus was released last February but made an Epic Games Store exclusive until recently. With the game now on Steam, it should be playing nicely on Linux thanks to Proton while 4A Games is said to be working on a native Linux port as well. For now though, Proton / Steam Play allows Metro Exodus to run on Linux.

  • Extreme top-down racing game 'Bloody Rally Show' is out now and it's good

    Bloody Rally Show has been mentioned here a few times, as the developer gave GOL early access to test it and it's a top-down racer I've certainly enjoyed watching grow.

    This is absolutely not your usual 2D racing sim either, it's set in a dystopian future with a rather unique blending of racing, battling and some rogue-lite mechanics to give you a huge amount of content to play through full of missions and challenges.

  • Furiously intense ball-smashing game 'Lethal League Blaze' is now available on Linux

    Today, Team Reptile announced they have officially released a Linux build for their intense sports game Lethal League Blaze.

Proton 5.0-3 for Steam Play

  • Proton 5.0-3 for Steam Play released, Direct3D 12 support for Metro Exodus

    Another small release in terms of noted changes but still an interested one, with today seeing Proton 5.0-3 for Steam Play being made available.

    For those who really can't wait for the upcoming Linux release of Metro Exodus, you can now run it in Proton in the Direct3D 12 mode. Nice to see support for that making it in so quickly and it will be interesting to see how it fares against the aforementioned Linux release.

    The rest of this release are bug fixes, with the major fix being a "high polling rate mouse regression" I saw a number of complaints on so Proton 5.0-3 should behave a bit better. On top of that there's also a fix for crashing launches with both The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners and eFootball PES 2020 plus Automobilista being unable to load some assets also being fixed up.

Variscite Rises to Platinum Member of NXP Partner Program

[Tel-Aviv, Israel, June 04, 2020] Following a very successful partnership between the two companies and Gold membership in the NXP Partner Program for 8 years, under which hundreds of end products were designed around Variscite’s System on Modules based on NXP’s i.MX applications processors, both companies have decided to strengthen their partnership further. With this decision, Variscite becomes the only System on Module vendor to join NXP’s Platinum Partner. “Since the launch of the i.MX 6 series in 2012, the number of markets and companies utilizing our processors has grown exponentially,” Commented Ron Martino, senior vice president and general manager, Edge Processing Business, NXP Semiconductors. “Having strong module partners who enable us to reach and extend market penetration has been critical for our i.MX product line growth. Among our many valued partners, Variscite exemplifies exceptional collaboration through their adoption of i.MX 6 to i.MX 8 portfolios, innovative SOM design, and customer adoption across a wide variety of markets. The promotion of Variscite to our Platinum Program level is well deserved and will be the foundation for further collaboration and growth between our two companies.” “This promotion brings a closer collaboration with NXP that will enrich the enablement and implementation of system solutions based on Variscite’s products and NXP’s technologies” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales at Variscite. For the past 17 years, Variscite designed, developed, and manufactured a wide range of System on Modules focusing on i.MX 6, 7 and 8 processor series, providing its customers with trusted embedded solutions for different verticals and purposes. Variscite has been part of the early access for all i.MX 8 series platforms. During the past two years, Variscite launched a respectable number of new System on Modules based on i.MX 8M, i.MX 8M Mini, i.MX 8M Nano, i.MX 8X and i.MX 8QuadMax SoCs and will soon launch modules based on the i.MX 8M Plus. The Variscite products launched in synchronization with NXP’s new product introductions, delivering strong collaboration in go-to-market strategies. Variscite continually sets a high bar for the Arm®-based System on Module market, focusing on strong customer support, closely accompanying its customer from the early concept phase to successful mass production. With the launch of the various i.MX 8 applications processor platforms, Variscite has established two highly-scalable, pin-compatible product families based on NXP i.MX 6 and i.MX 8 series. The VAR-SOM and DART Pin2Pin product families offer Variscite’s customers significant long-term advantages such as high scalability, optimized cost/performance, ease of development, and extended lifetime longevity.
