  • How big is Linux gaming? Some estimates

    I keep reading comments that Linux gaming is pretty much stagnating and not worth investing in because it is still at around 1% in the Steam Hardware Survey. So I decided to try and find some numbers. Unfortunately, there isn't all that much data publicly available, if you have additional or better data, I'll be happy to add them. Also, if you find any mistakes please let me know.

  • Kingdom Come: Deliverance doesn't look like it will come to Linux any time soon

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance, a game built with CryEngine looked like it was going to be a fantastic game to have on Linux, but the developers have told me it "is not possible technically".

  • The Interactive Adventures of Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy now released

    The Godot Engine has grown by leaps and bounds alongside Dog Mendonça & Pizzaboy's development. Its recent 2.0 release and Steam launch have been received with enthusiasm by both the existing Godot community and newcomers alike. The engine is now under the protective wing of the Software Freedom Conservancy, which is as I understand it, making sure that two of its primary developers can continue working on it.

  • How To Run A Game Boy Emulator In Your Terminal Window?

    If you are stuck in the world of bin and bash, trying to figure out a way to escape your machine’s Terminal, here’s how to take a quick break. If you know some basic UNIX commands and PHP, this quick and dirty method will help you play Pokémon and Mario inside your Terminal.

    I found this Terminal Game Boy project on GitHub. To use this, your machine needs to be running at least PHP 5.6, 7, or HHVM. This Terminal emulator only works on Linux and Mac OS X. Based on Game Boy JS Emulator and making use of PHP7’s performance improvements, this project has become a fun way to kill some time.

  • Unvanquished Celebrates Four Years of Alpha Builds, Beta Just Around the Corner

    The developers of the open-source and cross-platform Unvanquished FPS (first-person shooter) game have announced today, March 14, 2016, the release of the 49th Alpha build.

  • Four Years Into Alpha, Unvanquished Alpha 49 Released With Major Renderer Work

    The latest monthly alpha release for the Unvanquished open-source first person shooter game is now available. This release also marks four years since these releases began by this project derived from Tremulous.

    Unvanquished Alpha 49 is also special in that it brings a new, tile-based forward+ renderer, which should help significantly with lighting performance. There are also patches to improve performance for those using graphical effects and more. The Unvanquished engine's renderer was originally derived from XreaL while now it's evolved into a radically different beast. Both the new and old renderer will be around for a few more releases as the new tile-based renderer doesn't yet support shadows and some other features, plus there is always the chance of regressions.

  • Linux Gaming Is Exploding on Steam

    Since the release of the Linux Steam client, Linux gamers have had a greater range of choice. Today, more than 1,900 games are available for download, with another 100 on their way. This compares well with OS X, which currently sports 2,900 downloadable titles.

    And, more games makes Linux a more attractive desktop platform for home users. Although desktop Linux is a joy to use, the lack of high-quality games has been a barrier to adoption for casual users. On the other hand, a relatively small market has deterred game developers from targeting desktop Linux users.

    The Steam marketplace has made it easier for games developers to reach Linux users, and cross-platform development tools reduce the cost of targeting the Linux platform.

  • Fail0verflow GitHubs PS4 Linux loader

    Fail0verflow has gone public with its Linux-on-PS4 loader, a little over two months after presenting an early and “ugly” version of it to the Chaos Computer Club conference in Germany.

    Consistent with the 32c3 conference presentation, the loader only works on firmware versions up to 1.76.

    The requirements are imposing for all but serious hackers: there's a special PS4 Linux kernel fork (here), a PS4 kernel exploit discovered last year called BadIRET, which has just leaked in the last day or so, and of course fail0verflow's PS4-kexec.

  • Exploit That Allows You to Run Linux on PS4 Released on GitHub

  • A KMail Breakthrough.
    This tells the story of how I finally managed a successful transfer of email data from KMail version 1.13.6 to version 4.11.5. It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
