  • Try out the new demo for the RTS game TFC: The Fertile Crescent on Steam | GamingOnLinux

    Available now until at least the end of EGX on October 10, you can try out the new demo for the Bronze Age RTS game TFC: The Fertile Crescent on Steam. This is the Steam version of the popular free game available on itch.io, with the Steam version planned to have many enhancements over the original.

    TFC is a classic base-building RTS inspired by the struggles of growth, advancement, and conquest in the cradle of civilization. Establish your village near fertile lands, and balance your food surplus against the size of your civilian and military might, as you build your village. Think of it kind-of like a pixel-art Age of Empires but with some unique mechanics.

  • Fly Dangerous is an open source love-letter to the Elite Dangerous racing community | GamingOnLinux

    Racing is apparently a thing people do in Elite Dangerous and so one developer has decided to make a game as a love-letter to the community called Fly Dangerous.

    The developer mentions that racing in Elite is not particularly accessible, so the idea with Fly Dangerous is to provide a "ground-up reimplementation of a similar-enough flight model to provide a training ground and common set of tools to track leaderboards, ghosts and general tom-foolery". Sounds like it could be fun and just recently Alpha 6 was released adding in a new ship, customization for ships, a new biome map and the start of upgrades for the Time Trial mode to have some actual maps and progression.

  • Children of Morta: Ancient Spirits gives you a new character with two different forms | GamingOnLinux

    Children of Morta: Ancient Spirits is the brand new expansion that's out now from Dead Mage and 11 bit studios, sounds like it's pretty great too. I still can't get over how good the art is.

    Introducing Yajouj’Majouj, a new playable character only available in the Family Trials mode. This character has two different forms allowing you to quickly switch between, allowing you to combine different attack types together.

  • More Fallout New Vegas bugs on Wine with Lutris. The New Vegas Anti Crash mod fixes things, and is also compatible with Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. – BaronHK's Rants

    So, my character on Fallout New Vegas got further into the wasteland and the game started freezing and stuttering every 10-20 minutes of gameplay.

    [...]

    However, as with most Bethesda titles, Fallout New Vegas was infamous over the years for crashing to the desktop on Windows, and not even in a way where you could pin it down entirely and say “Oh well, that’s where it started!”, because Windows itself changes internally.

    It’s really funny, because anti-GNU/Linux trolls say that GNU/Linux changes underneath and maybe some compiled code doesn’t behave as you might expect years down the road, and that Windows is so great.

    The truth is that unless an OS was to stop being developed entirely, including security patches, there would be no way to ever fully guarantee 100% compatibility forever.

  • GT210 Nvidia card for old workhorse PC

    When I say "HP", it is really a mixed-breed. Bought it second hand from a guy who had put it together as a gaming machine. HP motherboard with i5 CPU, 16GB RAM, UEFI-BIOS. Pre-USB3, so back then added a USB3 adapter card.

  • Metroid Dread: Experience the Fear … With Emulation!

    Ah, the beautiful month of October, probably my favorite month of the year. The temperature outside is just right; not too hot, not too cold. The tourist season is over. The month when most of my family members were married.

    What’s even better with this particular October of 2021, however, is that it’s been quite the month as far as game releases. Just this week we had Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl (review on that coming real soon), Far Cry 6 for FPS fans, and today marks the release of Metroid Dread. The curious part of me, of course, wanted to test to see how well Metroid Dread would run with Ryujinx, my preferred Switch emulator for Linux.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
