  • Road Redemption Combat Racer Fixed Up For Linux & SteamOS, Performs Well Now

    The Road Redemption developers delivered and fixed up their botched release, it seems the problem was a debug build that was sent up by mistake for SteamOS & Linux.

    The update was released in the early hours of the morning for me, so I was asleep while this was all fixed up. I also have a life outside of this website during the day, so I am not always able to write things up as soon as they happen, so please be mindful of that before bashing me/GOL in future (really surprised I had to write this section due to some comments recently). I am pleased to say I tested it out now I had some time, and it seems to work fine. It's really great to see them deliver.

  • Vendetta - Curse Of Raven's Cry Released For SteamOS & Linux

    Vendetta - Curse of Raven's Cry the big update to the poorly recieved Raven's Cry is now available on Linux & SteamOS.

    I really hope they have fixed the game up properly, and if you own Raven's Cry you can get a free copy, but you need to manually request it.

    There are no reviews yet, so it's not clear if it's actually any better. I'm not willing to spend £31.49 right now to see if it's worth it or not either considering the history. What I don't like is that they have now hidden the original release on Steam, to hide the poor reviews of course. I don't agree with that approach, as it's quite obvious they are hiding the past of the game.

The State of Open Source Gaming on Linux

Filed under
Linux
OSS
Gaming

This year has been particularly fruitful in its addition of ports from big names, but prior to the wave of ports that came recently, Linux and UNIX games were predominantly cloned or original games made by the community. Some of these sites are short on funding and require support to continue providing content. OpenGameArt’s founder, Bart Kelsey, has asked for funding to maintain the site in a campaign that is currently at 65 percent of it’s goal — and I urge you to support this and other projects connected with open source gaming.

7 tools for analyzing performance in Linux with bcc/BPF

A new technology has arrived in Linux that can provide sysadmins and developers with a large number of new tools and dashboards for performance analysis and troubleshooting. It's called the enhanced Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF, or just BPF), although these enhancements weren't developed in Berkeley, they operate on much more than just packets, and they do much more than just filtering. I'll discuss one way to use BPF on the Fedora and Red Hat family of Linux distributions, demonstrating on Fedora 26. BPF can run user-defined sandboxed programs in the kernel to add new custom capabilities instantly. It's like adding superpowers to Linux, on demand. Examples of what you can use it for include: Read more
