Quoting: Purple Library Guy
Quoting: CatKillerIt very much sounds like a scam to extract money from venture capitalists.
. . . Mind you, I don't have a big problem with that. Those folks clearly need money extracted from them.
Please don't make fun of them.

Just like cows who will be in pain if not milked, venture capitalists are in pain if money is not extracted :(

Valve fixes up Steam Remote Play - again

Quoting: JuliusWayland and Steam in general seems to be a mess right now. SteamVR used to work on KDE with wayland, but ever since the SteamVR 2.x update I can't get it to work anymore :(
Wait, so the 5th or so "year of the Wayland" is not actually it? ....

I am shook!

Proton Experimental fixes up Apex Legends, Epic Games Store, Warlords Battlecry III

I very much recommend this Total Conversion/Upgrade mod for WBC3, it's standalone (but you gotta own WBC3 on Steam):

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2420170/Warlords_Battlecry_The_Protectors_of_Etheria/

It is also on ModDB, where it doesn't require you to own WBC3.

It does change things around quite a bit.
And also comes with lots of QoL improvements, makes it work better in larger resolutions, adds a lot of sub-factions to the already 10-12 or so factions, includes several campaigns like the WBC2 campaign (you need to go to custom campaigns for these), etc.

Also a rather active Discord.

IMO the way to play this gem nowadays.

Quoting: HamishIt seemed a good balance between tackling moon logic and a genuine mental challenge.
Totally.

It's just.... I can't speak for everyone, but that isn't really what I'm looking for when playing these kinds of games.

Yeah, HeXen is more than anything else a test of patience.

How long until the endless backtracking and looking for hard to find levers, doors and keys will drive you insane?

EmuDeck removes Yuzu And Citra emulator support
5 March 2024 at 11:21 am UTC

Understandable.

Too bad for those using those emulators.

Personally, I restrict my emulation on the Deck to older hardware. Only up to PS2.
After that, it becomes nigh impossible to have reasonable collections anyway due to sheer size.

The HDMI Forum rejected AMD's open source HDMI 2.1 implementation

QuoteSo if you're on Linux, it's going to continue to be best to buy hardware that uses DisplayPort.
I found that to be true regardless of Linux or AMD.
At least in my experience, I never had issues with DisplayPort, but definitely quite a few across platforms with HDMI.

This game really is insanely good.
There are so many build paths you can take and synergies you can seek out right from the get-go, not just in end-game.
