I'm fine with the

I'm fine with the multi-lists, but it'd be good if the links were 'active' in the RSS feeds so I don't have to click to get to tuxmachines then click on each link in the list. I understand why you'd do it that way, though Smile

Redirect to original

I agree that LXer style linking (with redirect to original) would be preferable, but Drupal's support for that is limited and may require new modules.

When it comes to digests (leftovers etc.), I might try to group by topic and use a suitable title. I need to get my workflow right; this can take a few more days. I am still learning/training myself. The ultimate goal is to maximise convenience to readers, not ad revenue or something like that. This site is a service, not a business.

Games and Wine: Dark Old Sun, Surviving Mars, Wine-Staging 3.4, Wine 3.4

  • Varied shoot 'em up Dark Old Sun adds Linux support, lots of different enemies and upgrades to try
    For those who can't get enough shoot 'em up action, Dark Old Sun [Steam] recently added Linux support and it looks pretty varied. It originally released on March 8th, with Linux support arriving only a few days later on the 16th.  It has three different game modes: An Arcade/Story mode with 6 different stages, a Challenge mode and a Survival mode where you face off against waves of enemies and random events.
  • Surviving Mars already has a fix out for the Linux text problem, plus more thoughts
  • Looking for a Battle Royale game that works on Linux? 2D browser-based is one
    I know, a bunch of you are probably already running away due to it being browser-based, but I find that really quite interesting. is actually not bad at all. Basic of course, since it's a top-down 2D game that runs directly in the browser, but that's also what makes it so interesting. You can play it on basically anything and if you want to team up with someone, it generates a link for you to send them and away you go. You can also play with strangers on a team as well, which also works surprisingly well with the simple emotes system to give them a thumbs up, or a sad face.
  • Wine-Staging 3.4 Released With MS Office Anti-Aliased Fonts, BattlEye Fixes
    Fresh off the release of Wine 3.4 on Friday, the maintainers corralling the Wine-Staging releases have now put out their second modern release. Wine-Staging 3.4 was released minutes ago since Alistair Leslie-Hughes managed to take-over the Wine-Staging maintenance and get out the recent v3.3 release. They have continued re-basing their patches against Wine upstream, more than 1000 in total. They are also working to upstream those patches where appropriate.
  • Wine 3.4 released with more Vulkan support
    Another Wine development release with Wine 3.4 that continues to add in more Vulkan support making another exciting release.
