What a waste of harddrive space ;)

 

Meh... I've got 1.64 TeraBytes of it to waste. ;)

Some things just won't run in VMs or Wine. For me it's Phoenix RC Flight Sim, iZotope RX, and Digico don't have Linux driver for its UB MADI audio interface.

I checked out Ace Combat 7 on Steam/Proton, it's rated platinum but costs $AU90 or $AU110 for the Deluxe edition. That's like first release A list game price even though it's been out for a year. I already have it on Win so it's a pass from me on that one.

 

But that's off-topic. I tried out Linux Air Combat last night and it works nicely nicely. The ole joystick still works although it drifts a tiny bit to the right. No biggy, and can recalibrate.

Well I was kidding about the "waste of space" but I know what you mean.

Dishonored 2

Quote

Reprise your role as a supernatural assassin in Dishonored 2 – the follow up to Arkane Studio's first-person action blockbuster and winner of more than 100 'Game of the Year' awards, Dishonored. Play your way in a world where mysticism and industry collide. Will you choose to play as Empress Emily Kaldwin or the royal protector, Corvo Attano? Will you make your way through the game unseen, make full use of its brutal combat system, or use a blend of both? How will you combine your character’s unique set of powers, weapons and gadgets to eliminate your enemies? The story responds to your choices, leading to intriguing outcomes, as you play through each of the game’s hand-crafted missions.

 

This is working well so far on my Arch set up. I followed advice from the Proton site, where it gets a SILVER rating,

 

Quote

PROTON_NO_ESYNC on launch options. Disable VSync and Adaptive Resolution ingame to improve performance.

 

I did try at the start to go stealthily but have reverted to killing every thing that moves and taking great delight in doing so, maybe because I am playing as Emily. 🤣

You should really give the first game a go before you try 2.

Story

"Revenge Solves Everything"
—Marketing tagline
Set in the plague-ravaged city of Dunwall, Dishonored follows the story of Corvo Attano, the last bodyguard to Empress Jessamine Kaldwin. Framed for her murder and the abduction of her daughter, Emily, Corvo is falsely imprisoned by the Empress' Royal Spymaster and usurper, Hiram Burrows.

Six months later, on the eve of his execution, Corvo escapes confinement with the help of a shadowy group of loyalists who seek to eliminate those involved in the assassination of the Empress and restore Emily to the throne. He is further assisted by an enigmatic god called the Outsider, who grants him Supernatural Abilities for reasons equally mysterious.

Corvo takes on the role of a feared and infamous assassin as he pursues members of the coup one by one - but whether he is out for justice or revenge is another question. Dishonored features multiple endings, which are dependent on Corvo's actions and player choice throughout the course of the game.

The games are pretty much the same. Graphics in D2 are obviously a tad better and gameplay a tad smoother. If you like D2 you probably would like the original. AN they are only 7 years old for goodness sake.. 🤣

Well looking at videos of gameplay, the textures are quite blocky. Some old games look great as it depends on their engine and if the textures have been updated or not. For instance, GTA V is like 5 years old but the only way you can max it out is by buying a $1500 GTX 2080.

Can not see this blockiness you mention here. Maybe the vids you saw were badly done. 😎
