Today we decided to play with Westwood Studio’s late nineties strategic titles: Red Alert, Tiberian Dawn and Dune 2000. All, without Wine or any other type of emulation, but using only what Linux offers . OpenRA is the answer to questions about how to do something like that. This carefully recreated Open Source engine is common to all three games. OpenRA, in fact, allows Red Alert to work in a practically perfect way, just as Julius succeeds withCesar III. The engine comes with a built-in wizard, which requires only a few mouse clicks to download the original assets of the chosen game. The titles are very similar, but the graphics are practically unique for each of them. With OpenRA, therefore, the plot remains in a secondary position and it does not matter if the war takes place in a parallel timeline where Nazi Germany does not exist.
The game, in any case, always takes into consideration the classic confrontation between East and West. Regardless of the front you choose, the things to do are always the same: to build a powerful and productive military economy, extract gold, train soldiers and attack the enemy as soon as possible. In this regard, if you can launch an offensive before your opponent does, you will undoubtedly have the advantage. OpenRA is a complete and highly developed game with intelligent robots, multiplayer modes and a rich set of missions, as well as fun tricks and characters. You will therefore appreciate the quality of OpenRA in a number of ways, including the well-designed interface where most actions can be taken from the keys. Finally, you’ll enjoy a powerful network mode, ideal for the most ferocious battles with friends, as well as an exceptional game speed.
I use a wacom tablet to play osu! on Linux. I’ve been hearing some things about Wayland and I wondered, would the drivers for my wacom tablet not work anymore if my distro started using wayland? I don’t remember what the name of the driver is, but I know the command that you use to make changes to settings related to the tablet is ‘xsetwacom’.
I have w10 on SSD and installed pop_os on an HDD. But when I boot into the HDD I don’t get a grub menu giving me the option to choose between windows or linux… I just boot directly into linux. So now I’m stuck with hitting F11 to boot into windows when I want to game… I did a clean install on the HDD and installed the grub-customizer if you need to know. Did I miss something in the installation process?
