Fixing Shadow of Mordor for GNU/Linux

Gaming
  • Shadow of Mordor Updated For Linux With Performance Improvements

    For those Linux gamers interested in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, a new Linux update is available.

    Today's Shadow of Mordor update brings "general performance improvements", with a note that it should help in CPU-limited scenarios. Performance improvements are certainly welcome for this heavy OpenGL Linux game. This update paired with the soon-to-land OpenGL shader cache work in Mesa should help open-source Linux gamers a lot.

  • Shadow of Mordor patch released for Linux, fixes issue with NVIDIA cards and moree

    You might not remember, but Mordor on Linux had a bad case of missing body syndrome. This patch will remove the need for any workarounds on later NVIDIA drivers.

  • Portal 2 has been patched to fix broken textures

    For quite some time Portal 2 [Steam] had broken textures on Linux and Windows. I reported the issue to Valve in April 2016 and they have now finally fixed it.

  • Core i3 vs. Core i5 Performance Impact On OpenGL/Vulkan Linux Gaming

    For a while now there have been some requests to post GPU benchmarks from some modern low-end and higher-end CPUs while testing different graphics cards, particularly to see the impact of the Vulkan API. With all the recent Kabylake testing, I've run some open-source AMD graphics tests using a Core i3 7100 and Core i5 7600K for those that may be weighing CPU options for a Linux gaming system upgrade.

  • Avorion, a procedural co-op space sandbox is now on Linux and it looks awesome
  • Unigine Needs Your Help Testing Out Their New Hardware Detection

    Unigine will soon be releasing their much-anticipated Superposition benchmark. This is their first tech demo / benchmark powered by Unigine Engine 2 and will be stunning for Linux users and don't mind stressing their high-end graphics card and OpenGL driver.

    Unigine Superposition was supposed to be released in Q4 but was pushed back to Q1. I've already run it internally and found it to be exquisite. Really beautiful and demanding benchmark, I am very excited for its GA release and at that time will be a ton of Linux GPU/driver benchmarks for this brand new test case.

Google launches new site to showcase its open source projects and processes

Google is launching a new site today that brings all of the company’s open source projects under a single umbrella. The code of these projects will still live on GitHub and Google’s self-hosted git service, of course, with the new site functioning as a central directory for them. While this new project is obviously meant to showcase Google’s projects, the company says it also wants to use it to provide “a look under the hood” of how it “does” open source. Read more
