  • Godot Engine - Multiplayer in Godot 4.0: ENet wrappers, WebRTC.

    Howdy Godotters! Time for yet another status update on networking in Godot.

    This time, we are going to dig a bit deeper into the low-level territory, showing some of the new ENet features exposed in Godot 4, and the effort of bringing WebRTC on all Godot-supported platforms.

  • Release candidate: Godot 3.4 RC 2

    The upcoming Godot 3.4 release will provide a number of new features which have been backported from the 4.0 development branch (see our release policy for details on the various Godot versions). With this second Release Candidate, we have frozen feature development and are nearly ready to release the stable version.

    If you already reviewed the changelog for RC 1, you can skip right to the differences between RC 1 and RC 2.

  • Vintage Arcade Used Negative Voltage To Turn Volume Up To 11 | Hackaday

    When [Nicole Express] got her hands on the logic board for the 1986 SNK arcade game Athena, she ran into a rather thorny problem: The board expected to be fed negative five volts! [Nicole]’s analysis of the problem and a brilliant solution are outlined in her well written blog post.

    [Nicole]’s first task was to find out which devices need negative voltage. She found that the negative five volts was being fed through a capacitor to the ground pins on the Mitsubishi M151516L, an obscure 12 W audio amplifier. After finding the data sheet, she realized something strange: the amp didn’t call for negative voltage at all! A mystery was afoot.

    To fully understand the problem, she considered a mid-1980’s arcade and its cacophony of sounds. How would a manufacturer make their arcade game stand out? By making it louder, obviously! And how did they make their game louder than the rest?

  • Paradox needs a bit more time to finish Crusader Kings III - Royal Court | GamingOnLinux

    Crusader Kings III, the popular strategy game from Paradox is expanding with the upcoming Royal Court DLC but it's just not ready yet.

    Announced on Tuesday, October 26, Paradox said plain and simply that "we are not, at the moment, entirely satisfied with Royal Court's progress, especially regarding its stability" and so it's going to release at some point during 2022 but they're not giving us a date as to when just yet. With this being the first CKIII expansion, Paradox said it will include "a set of features entirely new to the CK series, including cultural evolution and language" and so they are continously experimenting with it.

  • Mind-bending puzzler Superliminal is getting a multiplayer mode | GamingOnLinux

    Superliminal is a pretty great puzzle game all about using the ambiguity of depth and perspective and to celebrate a year since the Steam release it's getting multiplayer.

    In the main single-player game, you interact with various objects in the world based on your position and how you're looking at them. It enables you to grab these items, make them big or small and use them to overcome some pretty fun puzzles. The new mode is an "experimental" Battle Royale that will be "available through the holiday season" (whatever that means).

  • 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.
