Steam Play Linux Testing
 
I figured I'd start a thread to document my testing of the new Steam Play Beta on Linux. A short list of games are whitelisted by Steam, but you can override this and try any game. So far I haven't done much:


Hardware: Ryzen 5 1600, RX Vega 56
Software: Latest Mesa drivers, latest Vulkan patches.

DOOM (2016):
- Whitelisted.
- Runs at 60FPS locked; 1440p, max settings, Vulkan API.
- No option to select 2160p even though I have a 2160p monitor.

Elite Dangerous:
- Not whitelisted.
- Wouldn't start.

Project CARS:
- Not whitelisted.
- Starts.
- Cannot save the game, error boxes presented whenever the game tries to autosave.
- Extremely poor performance; I didn't properly analyse but it was choppy as hell at default settings.

This is a great idea. I've changed the title to include Linux as I was confused at first, hope you don't mind.

Not at all, thank you very much.

Here's a spreadsheet aiming to do the same thing:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...x0tyGa/pubhtml

I'm running Arch with proprietary Nvidia drivers, 8700k/GTX 970.

I tested Wreckfest myself, which ran worse than on Windows but singleplayer seemed flawless - but multiplayer server browser caused it to hang. The game also didn't offer refresh rates in excess of 60, but with G-Sync it had no problems pushing higher frame rates.

Fallout New Vegas refused to start, complained about no audio devices.

Very impressive guys! I'm tempted to grab a new Distro and join in.

I know I will end up bored this winter and trying this out :)

Great idea for a thread man.

You need to mount them with ntfs-3g, assuming they're Windows drives. I'm not sure if it's included by default, you might need to install it.

You can just do it mounting manually:

mount /dev/sdXY /mnt/NAME

You get the device id, for instance /dev/sdb3 with the lsblk command and the folder also needs to exist and be empty, use mkdir for that. Oh and an elevated prompt so either use sudo or just ascent to root with sudo su.

If you want them to mount automatically on system boot (keep in mind mounting NTFS on Linux slows down your boot time measurably, in the neighbourhood of 1 second), you can add them to /etc/fstab.

Here is a decent article for that.

I'd also prefer using UUID in fstab over the /dev/sdXY as said in that wiki article. You can get the uuid with the blkid command, so "blkid /dev/sdXY" as an example.

Cheers matey will try do it that way once I figure which sdb, sdc or sdd refers to which drives.
Positive I did this with an app last time.

Well, you can get quite far with just lsblk and blkid, if you want something similar to Windows' partition manager you can install gparted. It shows the /dev/sdXY as well. It's mainly a partitioning tool though so avoid hitting Apply in this case. :D

Edit: Oh there are graphical tools for it, KDiskFree seems quite decent.
