" In solidarity with Epic Game Store's lack of features, we have decided to drop support for: forums, refunds, parties, account sharing, version rollbacks, screenshots, groups, marketplace, mod hosting, library sorting and the entire Mac and Linux platforms"
Thanks for the heads-up...I have a Pi Hole on my network so I added these hosts from the post to the blacklist to block this, but you can also stop them by adding them to your HOSTS file:
The more I read about this, the more it seems this is just a vulnerability in PNG and it just so happens that Minecraft uses the PNG format for player skins. It could have been any other distribution method, including a website. Running MC is fine and won't get you infected...... unless you run a mod from a dubious source. That's the big security issue: only download mods from good sources!
(edit: even calling this a PNG vulnerability is stretching it, as it sounds like it's just inert code inserted into the file with no way of executing under normal circumstances; it just happens that AV flags this anyway)
(edit 2: since the above site isn't updating their article, here's a confirmation on what a lot of us were saying: https://minecraft.net/en-us/article/minecraft-java-edition-skins-issue-update)

They are still calling it a canvas bag, even though it isn't a canvas bag.

Add Valve to the list of developers who have blacklisted Kotaku.
Edit: Not sure what their status currently is but Bethesda and Ubisoft both blacklisted them at some point. Here is an interesting article about it.
And for independent developer that don't have or don't want a store of there own (because it's a big way to ruin yourself) there's always the Humble Widget or itch.io who take under 10% for selling your game.
which makes no sense as the game can be run without the steam client running once installed via steam: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Party_Hard
also the piracy excuse is BS also because steam DRM is easily stripped even if they used that.
They also didn't update the Amazon listing
>Full-Scale Wearable T-51 Power Armor Helmet with West Tek Canvas Carrying Bag: This wearable helmet faithfully replicates the in-game model and comes complete with voice modulator speaker, functioning LED head lamp, and custom V.A.T.S. sound feature.
The worst part about this is how it's idolised, and--I'd put good money on--entirely misunderstood.
It's like places that say "you can take as much leave as you want". The result, as unintuitive as it sounds, is that no one takes any leave. Everyone feels pressure to not take leave, because there is no longer a minimum amount. So a valid answer for "as much leave as you want" is 0, and to take leave becomes-- silently--socially unacceptable.
Similarly, when they have "no management team, do what you want", what that will really mean is that it's actually a giant secret club full of unofficial group dynamics, pressure and infighting. There are no structures to formalise what always happens when groups of humans work together.
All Valve does these days is yearn to make money. Steam is a giant cash cow. Every game they make must support micro-transactions, hats or whatever. I will bet large sums of cash that they will never, bar some kind of large management change or industry change, make another single-player narrative focused experience ever again.
Edit: Apparently if we all read the internet more, we would have known this 6 years ago: https://kotaku.com/5795355/valve-probably-done-with-single-player-games
 The way some companies have fixed this is to have unlimited leave with a forced yearly minimum. I don't think it's been long enough for those companies to report back on how that's worked, or at least I haven't heard anything.
 Say, Steam stops being free money or people finally get sick of microtransactions
I'm getting confused, everyone's saying pcgamer is irrelevant or dead, yet even you link info from them to this sub because you don't want to link a 2 hour podcast from someone else that gets their news from pcgamer?
They have a heap of journos with contacts in most every company same as IGN, Polygon etc and even have there own show at E3 which most of the PC gaming crowd watches, They had 41 Million page views just last month.
I'm just trying to understand how people here are all of a sudden saying they're dead or irrelevant all of sudden, seems this sub just loves a bandwagon everything that Epic touches regardless who they are or in this case what they do, this is just a news website this time lol.

>Hey, gearheads: We’ll be expanding upon the vehicle upgrades that already exist in Mafia III by adding new customization options. You can cherry out your favorite ride with new wheels, personalized license plates, and paint jobs. And, yes, you will get even more options to boost the performance on your vehicles.
The problem is that lots of these marketplaces (Bethesda.net, Blizzard app, Paradox's client, Ubisoft's uPlay, lots of others I'm sure) exist for the sole purpose of first-party games.
Steam is a marketplace which does have first-party Valve games but it mostly has games from other developers. Other open marketplaces that focus on third-party games include GOG and Itch. But Humble and GMG don't really count since they mostly sell Steam keys instead of distributing games themselves.
If you want Steam to have competition, buy from Itch or GOG.
The title is very misleading. They haven't changed the engine cut at all, it's still 5% of the total gross revenue made above $3000 per quarter. What they've changed is the revenue share for Unreal Marketplace assets, which is a different thing.
Campo Santo announced and are working on In The Valley of Gods, so I guess that's the next Valve game after Artifact? Anless Valve cancel it, which I hope not because it looks great
It's single player and storydriven too... holy crap Valve could actually put out a new single player game!
Edit: They've confirnmed In The Valley of Gods is still coming out So yeah, that's absolutly goign to be the next Valve game!
The 1.3.6 update has become 1.4. This is the 4th and final major update to the game, and the trailer don't show everything, there will be more surprises. It will be out by the end of the year, and Re-Logic will move to the next game.
Op, you can add link to Denuvo Steam Curator to your post.
It tries to solve this exact problem. While subscribed you will see this curator info right on the Steam Store Page of games that have Denuvo installed.
But at least they proved they're GDPR-compliant by handing over the data...
Of course, based on my limited understanding of the GDPR they now have less than 72 hours to decide if they need to report this to the relevant data protection authority; if they fail to do so, that's up to a fine of 10 million euros or 2 per cent of global turnover (although unlikely in this case).
And that's on top of any consequences for failing to secure the data in the first place (in practice, probably the more serious thing).
And they need to document all this. And probably go over a lot of their stuff to make sure it doesn't happen again. And probably some other stuff.
Then there's the possibility of suing - although that probably won't get far depending on where they're based. The Epic Store EULA has a binding arbitration clause, but that may not hold in some places (generally the EU doesn't like them), same with the limitations on liability and choice of law rules and so on. Might be difficult to show damage, though.
As an aside; they really should do the standard thing of having a separate section in their EULA for EU people - as with the Steam Subscriber Agreement - whereby the med-arb clause isn't valid. Although they do have a reference to the EU's Online Dispute Resolution Platform.
Why not link the original report from Jason Schreier? This Polygon regurgitation has less detail and incorrectly refers to "a Dragon Age reboot", which (incorrectly) makes it sound like Bioware is rebooting the series (the original article only says they're rebooting their production strategy).
On their main store page:
> We’ve shifted features targeted for April to May and June as development efforts have focused on supporting online features required for new game launches.
The reason it is so big is because it includes all of the previous updates using a new compression method. After installing this massive update the game will actually take up less hdd space and future updates should be much smaller in download size.

Please stop spreading false information. The 2 months comes from the steamdb package "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp". If you look at Arkham Knight here https://steamdb.info/app/208650/subs/ it shows the 2 months but that literally says "Last updated". Copypasting my response from elsewhere.
>Bullshit. Check the history for that package https://steamdb.info/sub/45433/history/
>You can clearly see they created "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp" on May 29, 2014. They also added Batman: Arkham Knight to the package on the same day. The "2 months ago" only shows that the package "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp" was updated 2 months ago. It existed before that, and it included Arkham Knight before that. Please stop spreading false information.
Now, having 10 people (if that's what they only had) porting the game for a year might not be enough, I don't know and I don't really care. Just stop spreading this "2 months" or "8 weeks" thing before it becomes a bigger rumour, since it's based on a total misunderstanding.
This is the best deal on the internet.
-Edit- So I've also heard you can have your account banned from purchasing further on Origin, however, this is NOT again st ToS so they can't rightfully do that. Therefore, you can call EA's support and argue that not only is it not evident in the Origin / EA ToS that purchasing software from another country for your American account is against the terms, but it's a wrongful ban, causing you mental and physical damages, as well as massive amounts of stress, which can be brought up in court, if the ban was not reversed.
I respect Tripwire, I'm a huge fan of the Killing Floor and Red Orchestra/Rising Storm series; in fact RO2 is my most played game (I seriously love hardcore shooters). On the downside, they often release games in a 'nearly finished' state, and Killing Floor has paid cosmetics/weapons/loot crates which I'm really not a fan of. That said, they fix up their games post-release with free updates and content, and their sound design/weapon animations are second to none, the attention to detail is admirable. If you want to see what's next for RS2 they've got a public trello where they list their roadmap.
To anyone who is thinking of buying it. Pay $5 for a month of EA Origin Access. You'll get 10 hours of the trial to see if you like the game. If you do, you save $6 (10%), so you save a dollar and got 10 hours free. If you end up hating the game, you are only out $5 and still have a month to play other games (including all the old ones, which are good games).
I'm not trying to say you should buy it, but I know people are going to do so regardless of what reviews say, so just trying to save people money. I'm going to wait til it's cheap and the issues are fixed.

f.lux is an essential for me. It automatically tunes down the contrast of your monitor at night, making it easier on your eyes. It generally doesn't impact games, but it's fantastic for late night browsing. You'll want to disable it when working with any graphics programs due to how it changes your color balance, though.

For those who haven't heard about this before, it isn't a new Fallout game, it is a mod for Fallout: New Vegas. I apologize if you clicked on it thinking it was, personally I thought it would be cluttered to include both New Vegas and New California in the same title. The mod takes place before New Vegas and from what I remember, I don't know if it's been changed, the mod ends with you waking up in Doc Mitchell's house letting you start New Vegas. Here's a link to their ModDB page.
f.lux (reduces eye strain at night)
SVP (interpolation software for mediaplayers, makes 24fps movies run at 60fps or higher.)
Unchecky (Software that automatically unchecks spam/adware in installers, and gives you a warning if accidently have one checked)
Greenshot (better screenshotting software, standard settings works like snipping tool but with functions to instantly upload your screenshot to sites like imgur and more)
Classic start (puts back the start menu in Windows 8/8.1)
Steam (obvious reasons)
Geforce Experience (if you have a Nvidia GPU then this is great, mostly for the Shadowplay feature and easy driver updates)
Clover (adds browser like tabs and more to Windows Explorer)
[this program might have some stability issues so just be warned about that, especially since you won't be able to refert to standard windows explorer if it decides to crash everytime you try to start it due to Control Panel using Clover if it's installed, although it should most of the time stop crashing if you restart or force close clover with task manager a few times.]

See https://ninite.com/ for a site to very easily download and install a lot of programs you would like on a new system, including some of the ones I named above. I'd recommend you select K-Lite codecs in it aswell since it gives you all the video codecs you need to watch videos, it also installes MPC-HC which is my video player of choice, although you can uninstall it if you prefer a different video player.

C'mon Taleworlds, I need a decent RTS/FP...S? hybrid that isn't a decade old.
i have a legit copy of Starlancer that i'm currently replaying, that i bought around 2001 or so. Starlancer has safedisc DRM which no longer works with W10; and W7 since that is the OS i use. i believe because the safedisc servers no longer exist to authenticate.
so i had to get a tool to remove the safedisc DRM to be able to play my legit copy of Starlancer.
not all publishers/devs care to remove the DRM when the DRM servers goes defunct. in my case, microsoft is the publisher, and they coudn't care less to.
Posted this in another thread as well, but Kotaku seems to know more.
They were teasing in the comments that they have info from people working on the project.
The article accompanying the teaser now reads:
" although the studio hasn’t yet said what it is, we hear it’s an online game of some sort. "
So unfortunately I am guessing some sort of MMO'ish thing possibly? I hope not.
Edit: Another confirm by Kotakus Jason Schreier on Twitter:
The solution for the issue was added to the PCGamingWiki article right after it came out. The bug is there but it's fixable and acknowledged by the publisher.

Here's a list of games with results from compression
Not every game gets compressed very well, but some of the results are almost mind boggling.
Note that if a game/file is updated it gets decompressed, so you'll have to rerun the tool after a major update to your game.
It looks like it was made specifically made for the console release. Simple, non-stylized, and blocky so it's easy to read from the couch. Blizzard did the same thing with their menus and fonts when porting Diablo 3 to the consoles. If there isn't an option to customize the HUD for PC, it will be really disappointing.
It went from a HUD for PC to a HUD for consoles
The sad truth is that the loot box fiasco that is EA's STAR WARS: Battlefront II has completely overshadowed the Visceral Games Studio shut down. EA will continue to put lootboxes/microtransactions/always online features in their games, and those studios that do not fall in line will be shut down. A quote from Kotaku:
> “Our Visceral studio has been developing an action-adventure title set in the Star Wars universe,” EA’s Patrick Söderlund said in a blog post. “In its current form, it was shaping up to be a story-based, linear adventure game. Throughout the development process, we have been testing the game concept with players, listening to the feedback about what and how they want to play, and closely tracking fundamental shifts in the marketplace. It has become clear that to deliver an experience that players will want to come back to and enjoy for a long time to come, we needed to pivot the design.”
I cannot emphasize this enough. EA will not produce any more games that do not have any of these features included. EA's bullshittery is way bigger than just the SWBF2 Loot Boxes, it's their entire company direction.
yea, had the same, but turns out it's the mic privacy option that mutes it. this setting
it was quite confusing to troubleshoot, as all my mics were identified too, and they showed the "bars" moving in audio control panel, yet no apps could get anything from them.

Depressurizer - It auto-categorizes ALL your steam games using the same categories used on the Steam's shop. You can also select tags (like local co-op, indie, spacesim, things like that) and it will also use them as categories.
This way you'll finaly be able to kind of browse your giant Steam collection by category. "Oh, I have friends coming today, let's see all my local coop and local multiplayer games!"

Games should be using the %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\ directory and never trying to save to the Documents folder.
After enabling Controlled Folder Access in Windows 10, which requires that programs are whitelisted in order to write to protected directories, you would be surprised at how many games behave badly when they no longer have write permissions to that directory.
Silently crashing at launch.
Crashing with an error message at launch.
Freezing or crashing when you try to change the preferences.
Freezing or crashing when saving.
Proceeding as though everything is fine - including saved games appearing to work - but displaying an error about being unable to save when you quit the game.
Proceeding as though everything is fine, but failing silently without displaying any kind of error message.
Creating directories in, or saving to, the root of the C:\ drive rather than the correct location.
Fortunately, CFA does not block symbolic links - they resolve to the source location. So my 'solution' to this problem is creating a directory for the game inside %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\ and using Link Shell Extension to create hidden junctions that point to it, inside the Documents folder.
It's a nuisance, but does mean that the actual files are all stored in a single location, and I don't have to whitelist games and give them unnecessary permissions.

PCGamingWiki (in a vaguely related note) actually shocked me in a similar manner recently. The Denuvo entry on it screams astroturfing, with no links to all the PROVEN performance losses and is incredibly defensive over the intrusiveness and failings, even going as far as outright lying about online requirements (which I have experienced first-hand several times beyond the first launch) along with cherry-picking sources and results. The majority of evidence completely ignored, for unfortunately obvious reasons.
It's a little disgusting, as is this, and I say that as someone who literally suffers from Denuvo implementations. I get hard system resets 2/5 launches of any D-protected game, and only on D-protected games. Legit or cracked. It's a modern plague and a disgrace to see it getting covered up.

It let me download an .iso file, but you can also use other boot media.
Dwarf fortress - the amount of work put into this game is insane. Yes the UI is not so friendly but you can take some time to read the wiki and you will get used to it eventually, a little effort and you will be rewarded with one of the most interesting and brutal experiences of strategy/dwarf management. Also it's free.
Half life 2 - Very fast paced action from start to end. Still stands out as one of the best of all time. Movement is very fluid if you practice it, can make the game seem so smooth. Also City 17 is how I imagine a futuristic 1984 would be, minus the thought police. Almost everyone already has it but if you don't I really recommend it.
Morrowind - Yes Skyrim is one of the most popular games of all times, has tonnes of mods to add hours and hours of playtime and looks insane but before Skyrim even existed I played morrowind for hundreds of hours, running home after school to load it up. I've never felt more immersed in a world before. There is currently an overhaul mod in the works, it is playable but not entirely finished yet, sadly the game does not hold up too well with graphics and movement like it did when it was released. The magic system in the game is nuts as well.
Eh, depends. Ironically 1 year out NMS put out Atlas Rises which more or less hit what they initially promised.
But the consensus was that year 2 of NMS, NEXT, was the bread winner that turned things around. Every year after that has just been gravy.
So maybe next year for Cyberpunk?

Steam Workshop is a really easy way to install Mods, just find the mod you want and click subscribe. You can uninstall them in the same manner.
Origin (EA) is actually pretty good: they give you trials of games and let you return games that you don't like. They also give away free games pretty frequently, granted its usually stuff like Peggle.
You will run into issues from time to time. Games might not launch properly, or they might crash etc. When this happens, don't worry about it. I haven't found a problem yet that the internet can't fix. You'll actually feel pretty good about yourself when you fix it.
edit: You can also add non Steam games and programs to be launched from Steam. Just click 'add a game' in the bottom left corner of Steam. This way you don't have to seperate your library when you get games on Origin or ...... Uplay.

I see them pop up on these 2 sites regularly. Usually $37-$55 depending on what version, battery, etc. Slickdeals has been a personal favorite of mine for years.

You do that, but, also makes a "modkit" downloadable "somewhere".
People can play the legit version, with non copyrighted assets, but people can infringe themselves by replacing the assets with something else.
A bit like how Open Transport Tycoon works. You can download Open Transport Tycoon, and, if you own the original game, use those assets with that engine.
Of course, in the case where assets are actually infringing, it wouldn't be allowed to be distributed, and the project would have to distance itself from those assets, but you can't force yourself the fan to not make assets for your game, which is totally not related.
SuperF4, for every time you've wanted to tear your hair out because unresponsive programs black screen, ignore alt+f4, and refuse to allow task manager to be visible.
It's unreasonable to expect people to read every single EULA for every single product/service they use.
They can take 10-20 minutes to read if you skim them, and most of them are the same. Imagine actually sitting down and reading the terms of service for every website, every app, every product you plan to use.
Don't worry, somebody already tried.
tosdr.org is a great way to find out what a websites terms are at a glance. The real tl;dr is most companies are taking whatever data you put in and using it however they want.
Companies and people scoff at regulations like GDPR but there is absolutely no accountability with the data being gathered and how it's being used, as we saw with shit like Facebook and Equifax. Nobody fucking cares because nobody gets punished for it.
It's not an "anymore" thing. It never has been on sale.
>We state it on our steam page, but people are still asking about it so I want to state it officially. We don't plan any Factorio sale. I'm aware, that the sale can make a lot of money in a short period of time, but I believe that it is not worth it in the long run, and since we are not in financial pressure we can afford to think in the long run. We don't like sales for the same reason we don't like the 9.99 prices. We want to be honest with our customers. When it costs 20, we don't want to make it feel like 10 and something. The same is with the sale, as you are basically saying, that someone who doesn't want to waste his time by searching for sales or special offers has to pay more.
It's basically about this: If you like the game you should be able to buy it right away without having the feeling of wasting money by not waiting for a sale.
I recommend everyone check out Gamesave Manager which backs up your steam (and non-steam) gamesaves to the folder or cloud service of your choice.
This program has saved me lots of hassle.
This is interesting, because I very recently had an issue with hundreds and hundreds of contacts being added to my account. And there's no way to delete contacts in bulk.
I actually already assumed my TV account had been hacked and have since changed the password. I contacted TeamViewer to see if they could remove the contacts for me, and instead
got a canned response.
For the record, https://haveibeenpwned.com does in fact show that my email address has the big Adobe and LinkedIn data breaches listed, so that's what I assumed it was. But now I'm not so sure...
After 550 days of work we are sharing beta demo of our indie game ! for Windows/ Mac / Linux. :D
You could DOWNLOAD it here http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-mims-beginning/x/3944421 on our Indiegogo Campaign. Write Remarks here or on our forum. or you could download it form
Posted this in another comment thread, but to support what you're saying I'll paste it here too...
You can find the book here ($229.87)
And there are multiple places where the author clearly states
>> Ready to be used in your designs, presentations or comps, as backgrounds or for general visual information.
and then specifically noted for the CD
>> The accompanying CD-ROM contains screen resolution TIFF files for all of the images in the book ... With the appropriate graphics software, on either Macintosh or Windows platform, the CD images can be used by artists and designers in developing concepts, preparing presenations for clients, and communicating visual information to others. Although the images are primarily intended for on-screen display, they can also be printed on either a black and white or color printer.
So yeah, this isn't an open and shut case as you indicated. Unless there's some hidden license, all plain english text indicates that this book is $200+ for a reason and that reason is so artists can use the images contained within.
Sound cards are a relic of the past unless you have really good headphones (non-gaming) or high end speakers.
Even then an external dac/amp will be a better buy. You can get something like the FX Audio DAC-X6 for below 70.
I got these over a year ago, and they are starting to show their wear, but hey, 20 bucks for a year, ain't too bad.

I got black so it shows less dirt.
just my 2 cents - you can download the full stream after it finishes from twitch with 4kvideodownloader in videos page
that is if they leave it there
i also found this, a good photo album of the streamby @d7470pl - https://www.reddit.com/r/cyberpunkgame/comments/9an3je/twitch_data_transmission/e4wug29/
the code has been reported as a loop, there is a part in there which goes /cd/L9N1H53FeMIsKKo... so look for it it might be the start
> Obligatory reminder of SafeDisc and SecuROM which don't work anymore on Windows
SecuROM does actually work on Windows 10. I've played a couple of SecuROM games recently, but I have no reason to believe that this DRM continues to be compatible.
Older versions of Starforce don't work on modern operating systems.

http://isthereanydeal.com/waitlist/ Look at the game, look at your wallet. Now look at your Steam backlog, now look back at me. Don't you wish your ...nvm.
Ok, just figure out what something is worth to you. Then get notified at a certain price. Then and only then make the buy/not buy decision, after again looking at how much time you have, how much interest, and what your wallet says.
F.lux - it reduces the harshness of a bright monitor at night, removing some of the blue light. You can set it to auto adjust slowly based on time of day, and you won't notice just how amazing it is until you disable it. Can help you sleep better at night too.
I rather like Ninite. You pick which programs you want and it creates a single installer to get you going. If you want to check for updates for any/all of the things it installs, you just run the installer again.
You may also want to check out this Reddit thread. The OP has a site listing useful PC and Gaming software and the top post list a bunch of alternatives.
You can actually run your windows games on Linux thanks to Proton. It's a compatibility layer for Linux that runs Windows games and built into steam / developed by Valve. It's not perfect but it works for a lot of AAA games (DOOM, GTA, Red Dead, ect).
There are a few issues with DRM and anti-cheat, but the FAQ claims they will have updates to proton to address this before the handheld releases.
And yes, you can run Windows on it. And I'm pretty sure Dual booting will work as well, this device is pretty much just a laptop with joy sticks on it. You're free to install any OS on it.
I'm excited :)
ShareX also deserves a mention here.
It's great for taking quick snaps of your screen, I use it every day. It have options to take a screenshot of your entire screen, only an app, or draw a box around what you want to screenshot and it uploads it for you right after + puts the link in your clipboard.
It basically most of the complaints originated from the time around the Amd buyout. Before Amd owned ATI the drivers sucked so bad there was a non affiliated person fixing their drivers under the name Omega drivers. Using third party drivers was the only way to get extra speed and stability but not everyone used them. The Catalyst suit they had at that time was so big it slowed down most computers. It Took AMD a long time to fix the mess that was the ATI drivers.
The heat problem that everyone talks about came from the time not long after AMD bought it when some manufacturers put cheap fans on the cards (which wasn't AMD's fault). I had one of those cards with a bad fan and it sounded like a jet engine and would reach 87C at full load. That has also changed once the manufactures stopped being cheapskates. The odd thing is Nvidia also had similar problems with some cards like the GTX480. The problem with being a Fanboy of any product is they always seem to forget about that negatives and only see the positive. source Honestly heat problems still pop up on some brands so i always wait for reviews so i don't buy a dud.
So most of the bias came from past problems that have been fixed or has to do with the brand they bought.
There are also some that believe that AMD doesn't update their drivers enough which is fair, but frequent updates can also cause problems if they aren't tested long enough. The Nvidia 196.75 driver had problems with burning up graphics cards so is sometimes a good idea to beta test drivers longer. source
All in all i think both cards are good and both have their positives and negatives but after hearing what Nvidia pulled I will probably go AMD again.
CJS-CDkeys had a post on this particular issue which seemed to put the blame on Rebellion rather than key theft. They seemed to imply that Rebellion and Steam are essentially trying to strong-arm key resellers because they are selling the game cheaper than either Rebellion or Steam would like them to...but admittedly I am not an expert on this topic. Here's the link to the CJS thing (linked in the Eurogamer article as well):
"Project Hades" has been a longer-term project to rewrite yuzu's shader decompiler -- the part that pulls apart the graphics language written only for the specific Nvidia Tegra GPU in the Switch, and prepares it to be rewritten for whichever grapics API and GPU the emulator user is currently running.
The rewrite has fixed a vast amount of games. The link above shows many of them, if you don't want to watch a video.
Are you reffering to Valve?
Contributing a lot to Linux is pretty much a good thing.
They have contributed to SDL2, Mesa (Open source GPU driver library), Vulkan, Linux kernel, OpenVR.
Also made these projects open source:
- Their own Game Networking Socket Library
- Proton which Steam uses to play Windows games on a Linux system.
- Valve helped with making MoltenVK free and open source (Vulkan To Metal wrapper for Mac). Previously you had to pay to use it and was closed.
If Valve hadn't made a "Faster Zombies!" blog post, it wouldn't cause a ruckus around Microsoft executives to do something about the DirectX Team which was under a life support, leading to development of DirectX 12 (See Rich Geldreich's "The "Faster Zombies!" blog post", since the sub-reddit doesn't tolerate blogpost sites)
the version being released today will require a copy of doom 1 or 2, and a Modern Doom Client (a-la Gzdoom, or Zandronum )
the next version to be released will be the starter pack which will not require a previous copy of Doom 1 or 2. Sgt MkIV says there is still has some work to do on the starter pack, but he didn't want to delay the release any longer.
