  1. Re: Half-Life 3, Left 4 Dead 3, and more turn up in internal Valve documentation

    They will probably continue Linux Support. It might be niche and small, but it has a dedicated and loyal community. Although, I imagine it's mostly a bi-product of their gaming console pursuits....

    Re: Ubuntu for gaming?

    It depends on what you mean by Ubuntu... The standard desktop probably won't, but considering how closely Valve has been working with Canonical Engineers suggests that their forthcoming Steam console...

    I can't be certain, but I don't think the hardware in that laptop is capable of playing skyrim. From what I understand of the hardware, the integrated graphics would be having a real hard time...

    Re: Cannot get mouse accel to work

    I understand your angry and frustrated, but I think you're misinterpreting people's intentions. They aren't telling you to not use accel because they don't want to help you, it's that they can't help...

    Re: Steam wont open in ubuntu?

    I believe that Steam and virtually all of Valve's games are 32-bit only. But, like Bölvağur says, this is easily remedied by installing the 32-bit libraries.

    Some of the games might come with both...

    Re: Ubuntu for gaming?

    I believe your thinking of the PS3. The PS2 never came preloaded with Linux (although some clever folks did figured out how to hack Linux onto it). The PS2 didn't have a CELL proscessor, it just had...

    Re: Cannot get mouse accel to work

    That same command can be used to increase acceleration too.


    xset mouse [[accel_mult[/accel_div] [threshould]]

    Play around with the values until you get something that feels comfortable.

    Re: Elder Scrolls Online

    Considering that I'm able to get Skyrim running in Wine (although, performance takes a hit), as long as the game engine isn't wildly different, it will probably work. Although, I don't know how the...

    The mouse acceleration in XFCE4 just ruins some games, and it seems that it's impossible to disable it entirely via configuration. So, I just run a command at login that basically disables all mouse...

    Hello Ubuntu Lovers!
    I've started a Youtube channel with a specific focus on playing games on Linux, trying to prove that gaming on Linux is not only possible, but fun.

    Re: [Howto] MPlayer with CoreAVC

    mplayer2 with it's static libav (used to be ffmpeg) is pretty good these days, I've been wanting to try some unstable optimizations. It might grab another 1-2% improvement on video decoding, but it...

    Re: [Howto] MPlayer with CoreAVC

    It'll probably never work. Dshowserver was made by the Coreavc-for-LInux project, and they're dead now. It would probably have to be rewritten to make it compatible, but I'm not a programmer, so...

    The mplayer2 packages I have in my coreavc-for-ubuntu PPA seem to work fine here in 12.04 beta. All my h.264 videos work using vdpau,xv,gl. Just using the built-in libav codecs to decode the video.

    According to what I see, you were indeed using CoreAVC. But coreavc is slower than standard libav or ffmpeg these days anyway, so I don't see the point. The only reason it might be faster on Windows...

    I noticed it too, it can easily be fixed by shortening the profiles name. But you should file a bug at mplayer2's bug tracker http://devel.mplayer2.org/wiki/Bugs

    Now, I'm not entirely familiar with mencoder, but that does indeed look like it's using it to encode. This is news to me because I've never heard of anybody using it to encode on linux.

    Re: [Howto] MPlayer with CoreAVC

    You can't encode with coreavc, only decode. Dshowserver, which allows the use of coreavc, is only designed for playback. And as far as I understand the patches, it's only accessible from the decoding...

    No, it's not even that much better than the default FFmpeg. It's mostly for people with old/slow computers that don't have access to vaapi/vdpau/xvmc.
