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.

So my work email keeps getting these spam mails from "itself," claiming that some "hacker" has compromised my system and has pictures of me jacking off to robot porn that they're going to send to everyone on my contact list if I don't pay them some random amount of bitcoin. #1, anyone can fake a […]
