A lot of games from Steam via Proton/SteamPlay works fine (even those which doesn't work on windows anymore). The only thing is needed for now is to install recent Mesa and Vulkan drivers. Devuan is a good solution because Devuan Ceres has everything required for that.

This is interesting, considering with Nvidia. the Persistanced daemon is a hard dependency on Nvidia driver. Which does not even seem to work for me.

Although, this begs the question if app armour and the modprobe setup on devuan is rather hardened or there is some kind of proprietary dependency or lock down on nvidia's part?  Or the package isn't compiled just right for devuan. The driver works, just anything to do with vulkan does not.

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=239926
seems like similar issue. Except caused by the only feature of systemd I like. See post 15

Edit: found a post online, where a debian user solved not getting nvidia-persistenced running by disabling Secure boot on his machine.. Yeah, no thanks ^.^
Anyway, proton I still have never used seems kinda cool tech wise. I just find it super cheeky how many games came pre-installed on the minimal installation of Devuan lol. Total waste of space wink

There are no such problems with AMD Radeon hardware wink

Nvidia is full of bugs and troubles. It has no even fully featured driver.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I rarely play but maybe a PSX game , using emulation . Works flawlessly .

And mostly i speedrun it . Usually to vent anything unhealthy for my mental health out of my system (boredom , frustration , anger , irritation , and many more dark things) . Otherwise just a warming up for my brain whenever i overslept .

Megaman X5~6 are the best for warming up my brain before i dwell in the work for the rest of the day . Or doing vimtutor speedrun if i get bored . Digimon Digital Card Battle , Monster Rancher Card Battle , Brigandine GE , DMW 1~3 are speedrun with save since i usually played around 10~15 minutes . But sometimes i forgot that they are there (in the external HDD) . Even i just remembered that they exist when i typed this reply .

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

the most comfortable thing is if you use synaptic is to choose game metapackages.

The metapackages are sorted by game types, which guides you a bit about what you want to play.

You have thousands. supertux this death hooks a lot is an 2D game

You try games, the ones you don't like, uninstall them.

I only have 'time wasters' on my computers, usually PySolFC, Xpat2, &/or Xshisen - never wanted to run big time consuming games. wink

Skyrim now works under Proton in Steam. It's awesome.

dopewars is the only game I've built for Dragora. Always run it with the -t option in my ever increasing effort to future proof via the terminal

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I used to play chess online, and I love wesnoth, mahjongg and supertuxkart from the repos.
Admittedly I bought some games, too:
TIS-100, Opus Magnum and Shenzhen/IO - nice puzzlers!
Hacknet
Pillars of Eternity,
x3, X Rebirth, would like to peek into x4, but that's not really drm-free anymore.
Mount & Blade Warband
I must admit I have given most of these games only a superficial try but I still like them. The Zachtronics puzzles are quite a regular evening pastime, though.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

yamagi-quake2

It's easier to install now that Quake 2 in Steam will install in Linux using Proton play, once the game is installed use

game-data-packager quake2 ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Quake\  2/baseq2

Then delete the game in Steam (it won't work at full resolution anyway) and enjoy Yamagi smile

I usually play UFO: Alien Invasion and Warzone 2100. They both had become my favorite games so far i've been using GNU+Linux.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I was playing Civ 6 maybe a year after it released and it was working fine. After few updates noticed sound got funky. And many voices were very quiet and sounds like it's coming through a tube. They told me to install pulse-audio to fix my problem. Lol  Guess I wasted my money ^.^

Not personally but the Steam website says it has a Linux version, have you tried Devuan's Steam client?

If you have a 64-bit x86 machine then you'll need to add the i386 architecture and the non-free repository component:

# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# sed -i '/non-free/!s/\<main\>/& non-free/' /etc/apt/sources.list
# apt update
# apt install steam

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Hi

It does indeed work. The best guide is this: https://wiki.debian.org/Steam/: It contains information about setup and solutions to problems with graphics and drivers.

Have a nice day

Thanks for the info, maybe it's time for me to get this machine to at least dualboot windows/devuan and try it out then!

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Hi

When I have told about steam, I would also tell about Lutris https://lutris.net/ : I have not tried it out yet. But it is made for making games on Linux much more accesible and claims you to be able to play a lot of games from both open and closed platforms.

Tell about your experieces. Good or bad

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Hei!

I used to play a lot of games earlier, mainly strategy games as: Cossacks, HOMM 3, Settlers 3, Empire Earth and so on.
Hidden and Dangerous and Morrowind were also marvellous games, I enjoyed Morrowind far more than Skyrim.

These days (I hardly play anymore though) I mostly play Left4Dead, Alien Isolation and FIFA; recently bought Soma which I/we will start playing soon, Amnesia and Penumbra were super!
