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 on devuan. Yet in debian it is not a dependency.

Does this have anything to do with systemd?  vulkan doesn't seem to work for me with the nvidia-driver.
I am curious to as why vulkan doesn't initialize on devuan. Others are telling me it will just run when you install the driver

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.

seems like similar issue. Except caused by the only feature of systemd I like. See post 15

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.

I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

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

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

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