uname -eh?


Linux beast 5.0.0-16-generic #17-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 15 10:52:21 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux It's running pretty nicely so far, though there was a strange thing with the USB-C dock I have all my desktop shit plugged into, but that seems to have passed.

We'll bang ok


To get working audio in Mass Effect 1, running on Proton with Linux: Open local files, then from there edit BioGame/Config/DefaultEngine.ini. Find the ISACTAudio section and add: DeviceName=Generic Software UseEffectsProcessing=False Then install xact: WINEPREFIX=/path/to/your/SteamLibrary/steamapps/compatdata/17460/pfx winetricks xact Then get a good Steam Controller config and save the galaxy.

Even More Steam Play: Call of Cthulhu


While I still wish more games were native, I have to say that the Proton runtime is a good idea. Thinking of it as a similar thing to OpenJDK or .NET rather than an emulation layer makes the WINE a bit less dry. ;) Runs perfectly (and with a kernel build running in the background...) […]
