  1. It’s Time to Ditch Skype and TeamSpeak, Discord Launches Its App for Linux Users The app is now available for Ubuntu Linux and other distros Linux was the missing piece for them to achieve full status and offer their services across all major platforms, both on desktop and mobile. Discord is currently available for Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows, but you can also use it directly from the Web, using a compatible web browser. The app appears to be a direct competitor to Microsoft's Skype VoIP client, as well as the well-known TeamSpeak voice communication platform. It offers a wide range of features, including IP and DDoS protection, in-game overlay, smart push notifications, individual volume control, support for multiple channels, and a modern text chat. Other noteworthy features of Discord include support for codecs, permissions, and custom keyboard shortcuts, a direct messaging system and friends list. It also promises to keep the CPU usage as minimal as possible, offering low latency support for audio and automatic failover functionality. Install Discord on Ubuntu now The first stable release of the official Discord app for Linux systems, versioned 0.0.1, is currently available for download as a binary package for Debian and Ubuntu-based distributions, such as Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, etc. However, to install it, you'll need to have a 64-bit installation. There's also a source tarball available for download in case you're not running an operating system based on Debian or Ubuntu, but you'll have to compile it. It appears that Discord 0.0.1 already made its way into the Arch Linux AUR repositories, and it's coming soon to Solus, too. Other distros may add Discord to their repositories in the coming weeks. Stoked to announce our super sick app for LINUX. Chris was massaging this for ages but it's like super sick now https://t.co/hQtQpZO95c pic.twitter.com/lVyDkBD3cN — Discord (@discordapp) January 11, 2017 Source

  3. Valve Finally Makes Steam Work Out-of-the-Box with Open-Source Graphics Drivers Also introduces idle detection and updates the Vulkan loader The new Steam Client Beta update brings quite a lot of changes (see them all in the changelog attached at the end of the story), but we're very interested in the Linux ones, which appears to let Steam work out-of-the-box with open-source graphics drivers on various modern GNU/Linux distributions, while implementing a new setting for older ones to improve the interaction between Steam's runtime and system's host libraries. "Improved interactions between the Steam runtime and host distribution libraries, which should let Steam work out of the box with open-source graphics drivers on modern distributions. If using an older distribution or running into problems, use STEAM_RUNTIME_PREFER_HOST_LIBRARIES=0 to revert to previous behavior," reads the release notes. Vulkan loader updated to enable Xlib support, idle detection added Additionally, Valve implemented idle detection for Linux platforms, automatically switching the friend status in the built-in chat to Away/Snooze when you're not at pressing any buttons on your PC, improves keyboard and mice support for Vulkan apps when using the Overlay, as well as the Vulkan loader to enable Xlib support. It also looks like the close-to-tray behavior is now unified with other platforms besides Steam OS. Users can now use the "STEAM_FRAME_FORCE_CLOSE=0" setting to force the Steam Client to close to tray on GNU/Linux distributions that don't offer a proper system tray area. Other than that, the new Steam Client Beta update addresses some DRI3-related crashes with open-source graphics drivers by shipping with an updated libxcb library, and adds a bunch of Steam Controller improvements. All these goodies and much more are coming soon to the Steam Client when a new stable build will be released. Again, you can view all the improvements in the changelog attached below, and if you can't wait until the new stable version arrives, you can switch right now to the Beta channel in the General section of the Setting dialog, but please try to keep in mind that this is a pre-release build.

  5. Dropbox Comes To Xbox One Dropbox is one of my favorite services -- something I am happy to pay for monthly. There are many cloud storage solutions out there, but I chose it for a very specific reason -- cross-platform compatibility. On a daily basis, I use iOS, Fedora, and Windows 10. Heck, I just ordered one of those fancy new MacBook Pro laptops too. Regardless of the operating system I choose, I know Dropbox will work for me. Today, Dropbox comes to another platform and it is rather exciting. The Xbox One gets an app for the storage platform, letting you view photos and videos. If you own Microsoft's console, and back up your family photos to Dropbox (as I do), you can now easily view them on your big TV screen. How cool is that? "We've made it easy to access all of your files from your computers, phones, and tablets. Today, we're bringing Dropbox to the biggest screen in your house with our new app for Xbox One. It’s the first universal Windows app for cloud storage on the gaming console, letting you view and share your photos, videos, and other files from the cloud -- right on your TV", says Dropbox. The company shares the following capabilities of the app. Manage all of your files with a new interface optimized for TVs, using a gamepad or media remote Upload and comment on files, and easily share them with friends Stream your home videos directly from the Dropbox app, without downloading them, saving space on your hard drive As someone who owns an Xbox One -- and has it hooked up in my living room -- this is great news. The next time I have friends or family over, we can view photos and videos without passing around a phone or tablet. This should contribute to a much more communal experience. If you want to give it a go, you can download it on your Xbox One today. Sorry, Xbox 360 owners, it looks like you'll have to sit this one out. Source

  7. Steam Controller Works Again with Older Udev Rules in Latest Steam Client Beta Upgrade your rules to allow Steam to access /dev/hidraw* The fact of the matter is that there's only once change in today's Steam Client Beta release for the day of December 9, 2016, and it makes the Steam Controller device work again with the older udev rules. To support future functionalities of the Steam Controller, which Valve is known to implement all the time to make it the best gaming controller for Steam users, the company recommends upgrading the rules to allow Steam to access /dev/hidraw*. "The Steam Controller works again with the older udev rules - upgrading your rules to allow Steam access to /dev/hidraw* is recommended for future feature support: http://steamcommunity.com/app/353370/discussions/0/490123197956024380/," reads the announcement. In-Home Streaming now supports NvFBC with the latest Nvidia video driver As mentioned before, this is the fourth Steam Client Beta update released this week, and the other three brought some interesting features as well, such as support for the NvFBC capture method with the latest Nvidia graphics driver to the In-Home Streaming feature in the Steam Client Beta update for December 7. SteamVR received attention as well in the December 7 Steam Client Beta update, improving the navigation when using the Steam dashboard with the Oculus Touch controller, and it looks like the December 8 Steam Client Beta update fixed a hang at startup if a controller is connected. Lastly, the Steam Client Beta update for December 5, 2016, improved the Web control functionality to fix a SSL loading failure, addressed various XAudio2 games that failed to create audio devices when launched, and fixed Camera Popping when attempting to mode shift the Camera input on games that are natively supported.

  11. Mesa 12.0.4 Promises 15% Performance Boost for Radeon Users on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS It's also coming soon to Ubuntu 16.10 users The Mesa 3D Graphics Library is a unique open-source implementation of the OpenGL graphics API for Linux-based operating systems, and it includes drivers for Intel, Radeon, and Nvidia graphics cards. But it looks like Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) was shipping with a pretty old version of Mesa. "[Ubuntu] 16.04 shipped with 11.2.0 so it’s a slightly bigger update there, while yakkety is already on 12.0.3 but the new version should give radeon users a 15% performance boost in certain games with complex shaders," explained Timo Aaltonen, Hardware Enablement, Field Expert Squad Team Lead at Canonical Ltd. Mesa 12.0.4 is coming soon to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.10 Therefore, the good news we'd like to share with you today is that Mesa 12.0.4 3D Graphics Library, which is currently the most advanced release of the Mesa 12.0 series, is coming soon to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and Ubuntu 16.10, promising a 15% performance boost for AMD Radeon graphics cards. But before it lands in the stable repos of the latest Ubuntu releases, it needs to be thoroughly tested. Therefore, users are invited by Timo Aaltonen to give Mesa 12.0.4 a spin by adding his PPA (Personal Package Archive) using the commands listed below in the Terminal app and report if it works or not with their GPU. Intel Skylake seems to work well with Mesa 12.0.4, according to the developer. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tjaalton/test sudo apt-get update Source
  12. A Linux Based Modular Gaming Console To Run Windows Games A modular console with high-end PC config that runs Windows games on Linux based OS. What else can you ask for? What’s the Achilles’ heel for Linux users? Let me point that out for you. It’s gaming on Linux. Don’t get me wrong. Gaming on Linux has improved significantly in recent years, thanks to the effort of companies like Steam, Feral Interactive and GOG.com. We even have Linux distributions specifically for gaming. In addition to that. Steam has launched its own gaming console range in the form of Steam Machines. These gaming consoles are basically PC hidden inside the casket of a gaming console. But even with all these, gaming on Linux nowhere close to gaming on Windows. Can this scenario be changed? Meet Project Novatio : A hybrid gaming console and PC Things don’t improve by itself, one has to make the effort. This motto resulted in the birth of Project Novatio. A brainchild of hardcore gamers and Linux lovers who want to bring them together. So what exactly is Project Novatio? It’s an upcoming project, based in Italy, that is working on a modular gaming console. This console will run a custom Linux distribution called NovOS and it will be ‘able to play all Steam games, including the Windows ones’, claims Project engineer Samuele Bagalà. The concept is very similar to Steam machine. So you have got a PC inside the body of a console. You might be aware that most hardcore gamers prefer PC over consoles because PCs have better hardware and can be upgraded easily. That’s not possible with consoles. Keeping this in mind, Project Novatio will provide a modular console. This means that you can easily customize your console by swapping its parts and upgrading it as per your desire and need. This gives Novatio an edge over the other consoles because Novatio has the configuration of a high-end gaming PC which can be easily upgraded in future. Modular console lets you upgrade parts How can it play Windows games on a Linux OS? That’s the biggest claim made by Project Novatio. And I know you would be curious to know exactly how can they run Windows games on Linux? When I enquired about it, Samuele told me that the Windows games execution is made possible thanks to a chip which is settled on the motherboard that converts the Windows software and fit them to Linux. They are trying to get a patent for it. Novatio features To summarize the features promised in Novatio: Modular console High end PC configuration Custom Linux NovOS Can run all Steam games including Windows ones No support for console games (no PS4 or Xbox games support) Can also be used with Android smartphone as controller When and where to get Novatio console? Not so soon, unfortunately. The project is in starting phase and it needs funding. Samuele told me that their plan is to start a crowdfunding campaign soon. Once they get enough money, they might ship some early prototypes to selected users by mid-2017. By end of the year 2017, it will be available for general public. A modular console with high-end PC config that runs Windows games on Linux based OS. If this device actually makes it to the market, it does have the potential to be a game-changer.

  15. How to Move a Steam Game to Another Drive Without Re-Downloading It Steam offers multiple library folders, and you can choose where you want to install games when you download them. There’s no obvious way to move a game to another drive after the fact, though–but it is possible, without re-downloading the entire thing. This process can save you from downloading tens or even hundreds of gigabytes of game data all over again, just because you got a new SSD and want to move a few games. It’s different from moving an entire Steam library folder and every single game inside it–in this case, we only want to move a few games. RELATED ARTICLE: How to Painlessly Move Your Steam Library to Another Folder or Hard Drive Step One: Create a Second Steam Folder First, you’ll need to make a Steam library folder on the second drive if you haven’t already done so. To do this in Steam, click Steam > Settings. Select the “Downloads” category and click the “Steam Library Folders” button. Click “Add Library Folder”, select the drive you want to create the library folder on, and click “New Folder”. Give it whatever name you like, click “OK”, and then click “Select” to choose the folder you just created. The folder you chose will appear in the Steam Library folders list. You can now close this window. Open File Explorer or Windows Explorer and navigate to the folder you just created. There should be a “steamapps” folder inside the main folder. If there isn’t, right-click inside the Steam folderyou created, select New > Folder, and name it “steamapps” (without quotes). Inside the steamapps folder, right-click, select New > Folder, and name it “common” (without quotes). When you’re done, the folder structure should be: [Your Steam Library Folder]\steamapps\common Step Two: Copy the Game Files to the Second Library You’ll now need to move a game’s files from the first Steam library to the secondary Steam library you just created. Locate the installed game you want to move in your Steam library, right-click it, and select “Properties”. Click over to the “Local Files” tab and click “Browse Local Files”. You’ll be taken to the game’s folder in your main Steam library folder. Click the “common” folder in the address bar to go up a folder. Right-click the game’s folder and select “Copy”. Go back to the Steam library you created earlier, right-click inside the “common” folder, and select “Paste”. Windows will copy the files from your first Steam library to your second Steam library. Wait for the process to complete before continuing. Depending on how large the game is and how fast your drives are, this may take some time. Step Three: “Uninstall” the Game Next, you’ll need to uninstall the game from within Steam. Steam will delete the game’s files from their location in the original Steam library, but the files you copied to the second Steam library won’t be touched. Warning: Be sure to wait for the file copying process to complete before you uninstall the game! To uninstall the game, right-click it in Steam and select “Delete Local Content”. Click “Delete” again to delete the game’s files from your first library. Step Four: “Reinstall” the Game You’ll now need to reinstall the game as if you were re-downloading it–but don’t worry, Steam won’t re-download the game. Locate the game in your Steam library and click the “Install” button. Select the secondary library location where you copied the game’s files earlier under “Choose location for install” and click “Next”. Steam will check the library location and say it’s “discovering existing files” before downloading anything. This will take some time, as Steam is actually inspecting the files on your second drive to find they’re correct and not corrupted. If a few files are missing for whatever reason, Steam will just download those files. It won’t re-download the entire game. You’re done. Steam now considers the game installed in the second library. To move other games, just repeat this process. You can skip the first step and copy more game folders to the “common” folder in the second Steam library you created. Source

  19. Rivet Networks has announced that its new Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet Controller will be available shortly on a number of gaming motherboards from MSI and Gigabyte. The firm claims that the E2500 "delivers the fastest real-time experience for gamers and performance users". The new Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet Controller incorporates a number of technologies to make the most of your connection. It includes Latency Reduction Technology to accelerate your most important network traffic, such as your game data, and makes sure that your most critical packets never wait behind less important traffic. Rivet claims that undesirable networking effects such as jitter and lag are reduced by prioritising critical network traffic. Furthermore, the E2500 leverages Advanced Stream Detect 2.0 Technology, and the all new Killer Control Centre, to allow you to configure networking priorities however you wish. The system can prioritise your games, video, and voice applications as well as detect and manage 500+ of the top global websites. This is set up out of the box but users can use the Killer Control Centre to adjust their networking to their own particular preference by controlling: The priority of each application and popular website The bandwidth used by each application and popular website The Killer interface that each application is going over The total bandwidth being used by the system As mentioned in the intro, both MSI and Gigabyte are already integrating Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet controllers into their gaming motherboards. Execs from both these leading PC gaming hardware companies have provided glowing testimonials to the new E2500. MSI is, however, the first to publicise new E2500 networking packing products; the Z170A GAMING M6 motherboard, and Aegis Ti VR Ready desktop. Beyond the early bird offerings from MSI and Gigabyte, Rivet expects the Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet Controller to become widely available by the end of the year on many more gaming motherboards and PC systems Article source
  20. Windows 10 vs. Linux Radeon Software Performance, Including AMDGPU-PRO & RadeonSI As alluded to earlier and on Twitter, the past few days I have been working on a fresh Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux graphics/gaming performance comparison. This time it's looking at the latest Radeon performance using an R9 Fury and RX 480. Tests on Windows were obviously done with Radeon Software Crimson Edition while under Linux were the two latest AMD/RTG Linux driver options: the hybrid AMDGPU-PRO driver and the fully open-source driver via Linux 4.8 and Mesa 12.1-dev. Given all the progress of particularly the open-source AMD Linux graphics driver stack this summer and the recent RX 480 Polaris launch, I figured it was a good time to do a fresh comparison of Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu Linux on the red side. Windows 10 Pro x64 had all available updates and was running Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.8.2. On the Linux side was Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS x86_64 with all available updates. Tested first on the Linux side was AMDGPU-PRO 16.30.3-315407 followed by the open-source driver. For the open-source driver tests was the Linux 4.8 Git kernel along with Mesa 12.1-dev. The Mesa 12.1 Git packages were obtained from the Padoka PPA that are also built against LLVM SVN for the latest AMDGPU compiler back-end. The same Intel Xeon E3-1280 v5 Skylake system was used for both the Windows and Linux benchmarking. With the current AMD open-source driver OpenGL 4.3 was exposed while via AMDGPU-PRO and Radeon Software on Windows there is OpenGL 4.5. It hopefully won't be too much longer until the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver is caught up to OpenGL 4.5. Tested for this article were a wide variety of cross-platform games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Metro Last Light Redux, GRID Autosport, and Tomb Raider. Also tested were Dota 2 and The Talos Principle; with both those games offering OpenGL and Vulkan renderers they were each tested on Windows and Linux to make for a nice comparison. See our premium comparison with Direct3D 11 if you want to see how D3D11 is competing with Vulkan and OGL.

  21. New GDDR6 Memory Could Hit GPUs In 2018 Samsung believes the days of good, old GDDR5 are numbered as VR and games demand better graphics Virtual reality and gaming are changing the way PCs are built and driving the development of new types of memory for GPUs. A successor to the GDDR5 memory used in most GPUs -- called GDDR6 -- will be on its way by 2018, according to a presentation by Samsung executive Jin Kim at the Hot Chips conference this week. GDDR6 will be a faster and more power-efficient form of graphics memory. GDDR6 will provide throughput of around 14Gbps (bits per second), an improvement of 10Gbps with GDDR5. Although Samsung has targeted 2018 for GDDR6, new graphics memory usually takes a long time to reach the market, so the estimate may be aggressive. GPUs will need to be designed for the new memory, and components will need to be validated and tested, all of which takes time. Applications like VR and gaming are putting a heavy load on GPUs, under stress to deliver the best graphics. VR headsets like Oculus Rift and HTC's Vive only work with premium GPUs. GDDR6 will help GPUs deliver faster performance while drawing less power. The need for more GPU performance is already changing GPUs. New types of memory like HBM (High-Bandwidth Memory) and GDDR5X, which offer faster bandwidth, are already being used in new GPUs from AMD and Nvidia. GPUs with HBM and other new memory are still priced at a premium. But GDDR6 -- like GDDR5 -- could be used in low-priced GPUs. It'll also be easier for GPUs to transition from GDDR5 to GDDR6 or GDDR5X than to HBM, which redefines the memory subsystem. It's clear that Samsung is putting its weight behind GDDR6, while rival Micron is backing GDDR5X. Nvidia's GeForce GTX1080 GPU has GDDR5X memory. Samsung also backs HBM. GPUs are also getting faster throughput, driving a need for faster memory. Faster memory helps GPUs process graphics faster, and the graphics can then be sent to memory, CPU, and storage via quicker interconnects like Nvidia's NVLink or the upcoming PCI-Express 4.0. Advances in manufacturing have also created the need for new GPU memory. Some of the latest GPUs based on Nvidia's Pascal and AMD's Polaris architectures are manufactured with new techniques including FinFET, a 3D structure in which chips are stacked. New memory like HBM and GDDR6 are designed for such new chip structures, while GDDR5 memory has been designed for older GPUs made using older manufacturing technologies that don't use stacked chips.

  22. Sony Leak Points To PlayStation Now Coming To Windows PC - Updated Site metadata hints at news; follows Amazon France listing for PC controller adapter. Update, 8/23 2:35 p.m. EDT: Sony has now confirmed both the DualShock USB Adaptor and the launch of PlayStation Now for Windows PCs. That service will launch in European territories on Wednesday, August 24; a North American launch of the game-streaming service will come "soon after." The DualShock USB Adaptor will work only with the DualShock 4 controller, as opposed to the PS3's DualShock 3, and will cost $25 when it launches in North America in "early September." (European users can expect their version to launch on September 15, but that version's price hasn't yet been announced.) Its compatibility with Windows games will come down to whether games support the DS4's specific features, including light-bar colorization and touch-pad compatibility. Original report: PlayStation Now, Sony's two-year-old game-streaming service, will soon come to Windows PCs, if an incorrect image tag on a Sony blog post is meant to be believed. Game-news sleuth Wario64 posted the discovery on Tuesday after mousing over an image promoting the upcoming PlayStation VR Worlds game. Upon doing so, a caption for something entirely different popped up: "PS Now on PC Announce Post by PlayStation Europe, on Flickr." Ars confirmed the caption was still live as of press time, though a peek at the blog post's metadata didn't point to any links to such a news post. The news follows a report from French gaming news site Gamekult earlier in August that suggested PS Now would first be announced for Windows PCs in Europe on August 23, with American users getting a crack one week later. Amazon France may have also let the streaming cat out of the bag on Tuesday by launching a product page for a "DualShock USB adapter for PlayStation 4," which could be used to more easily connect the PS4's DualShock 4 controller to Windows PCs—though thanks to an empty product description, that's only speculation. PlayStation Now currently allows gamers on PlayStation 4 consoles, PS Vita handhelds, and select smart TVs, to stream older PS3 games from a cloud service. Our testing has shown improved latency since its 2014 launch, and thanks to a broad game library, the offering is among the best in the nascent game-streaming industry—so long as you don't mind being stuck with years-old PS3 games. We have asked Sony to confirm the legitimacy of the photo caption in question and will update this report with any response. Source
  23. New 'Pokémon GO' Cheat for iOS, iPhone: 'Choose Your Ride' while You're on Your Couch; Hack Claims You won't Get Banned The new Pokémon GO cheat lets players to fake their ride while they are sitting on the couch New 'Pokémon GO' Cheat for iOS, iPhone: Fake Your Ride while You're on The Couch; Hack Claims You won't Get Banned The previous Pokémon GO cheat that has gone viral is when a player shows how to unban the softban using a few easy steps. This time, Pokémon GO cheat gets you walk around undetected. "Pokémon GO" for cheat jailbroken iPhone to walk around the map without even moving from your couch A YouTube video below, posted by iCrackUriDevice, shows how to install the "Pokémon GO" cheat software inside a jailbroken iPhone. The user stresses a few times that he has tried the method and it does not get him banned. He ensures that this method is safe since there is a joystick to trick the AR game. First of all, the user states that your iPhone has to be jailbroken to install the "Pokémon GO" hack in the device, Game n Guide wrote. Once you download and launch the game, you will notice there is a joystick appearing to help you move anywhere you want. The hack setting includes customizing speed - which means you can actually pretend to ride a bike, a car, or just walking on foot. This method will help you to transport (not teleport like the other hacks) to another place, far away from where you are without being considered as GPS spoofing. The user ensures players that they won't get banned by using the Pokémon GO cheat According to the hacker, who thanked Pangu jailbreak for making his iPhone able to download the cheat, said that this hacking software is compatible with any updates that Niantic will roll out in the future. Although this may not guarantee that Pokémon GO players will not get caught, it is worth to note that Niantic is serious about permanently banning your account in case you are catching them all using GPS spoof apps. Since not everyone is able to walk and catch them all, the "Pokémon GO" cheat has a great advantage if you want to grow your monster collections. However, as the user said it before, you need to be willing to sacrifice your iPhone to be jailbroken for this. Aside from the claims, let's be careful while playing Pokémon GO since Niantic is constantly fighting the bots and spoofs. Source
  24. Play Thousands Of Classic Amiga Games In A Browser The Internet Archive's Amiga library enables you to play thousands of Amiga games, applications and demos using any modern web browser. The Amiga computer was a powerful machine back in its heyday that beat IMB PC's back then when it came to gaming, and quite a few other things such as creating music. Up until now you had to rely on emulators running on the local machine to play Amiga games, demos and software on a PC. Not only that, you also had to get your hands on so-called Kickstarter Roms, a prime requirement to use the emulator at all. All of this changes with the Internet Archive's Amiga Software Library project. Basically, what it allows you to do is play Amiga games and other content straight in your web browser. No more fiddling around with emulator settings, finding Kickstarter Roms or Amiga discs: everything is just a click away from execution. Internet Archive: Amiga The Amiga archive works similar to other archives Archive.org hosts on its site. We talked about the Console Living Room project on the site for instance, which gives you access to classic arcade and console games -- thing Sega Mega Drive or Nintendo Entertainment System -- in your browser. The Amiga software library on the Internet Archive holds 10,355 titles at the time of writing which includes mostly games and demos. While that covers a wide range of Amiga software, it is not a complete collection at this point in time. You may sort the initial listing in various ways, by title or creator for instance, click on one of the letters at the top to filter games by their starting letter, or use the search to find a game of interest. While you will find many popular games listed, some like the excellent Moonstone or games by the Bitmap Brothers or Microprose are not listed. To play a game you simply click on its title. This opens the emulation interface with a big play button in the middle. Click on that button and wait for the site to retrieve information and start the emulator. This may take a while, and one of the negative things is currently that you don't get any feedback during the process. There is no loading indicator, and since the loading takes a while, some users may even go back or close the site completely in frustration. This is especially the case for games that are clearly not working at the time. New stuff is added on a daily basis currently however so there is a chance that games that are not available yet will become available at a later point in time. Another thing that you may have difficulties with is that there are not any instructions on how to control games. While some work fine with the mouse, like the Lemmings game on the screenshot above, others cannot be played with the mouse. Keyboard controls are provided. You move the cursor using the arrow keys on the keyboard, and fire with the left Ctrl-key. Enter is also used in menus and such. I had no chance to test the use of a joypad connected to the PC but it is likely that this will work fine as well. Keyboard emulation is used when no joystick is detected by the emulator. Closing Words The Amiga collection on Archive.org holds demo and public domain content for the most part currently. There is a good number of games available as well, but the bulk of the collection is made up of that other stuff. If you like demo scene releases, you will find plenty there including complete or nearly complete disk mag compilations. The Amiga archive is a work in progress though with content regularly added to the collection. Good place to relive childhood memories or check out what the Amiga was all about. Source
  25. How to Play Pokémon Go On Your PC/Laptop Catch Pokemon with Pokemon Go on your PC/Laptop without ever leaving your desk, but it’s a little bit messy. If you are not living under a rock, you must have heard about Nintendo and Niantic’s gaming sensation, Pokémon GO, which is based on augmented reality. Pokémon GO requires gamers to walk around their neighborhood with the smartphones to capture Pokémon nearby. For now, Nintendo has not released this game for Windows devices. However, you can play this game on your Windows 10 PC using Android emulator such as Bluestacks. Since you can’t carry your Windows PC, you can use Fake GPS to fool the Pokemon Go on Windows PC/laptop that you are actually moving around. Even if you have Android smartphone or iOS device, if you want to collect all the Pokémons without leaving your desk, then the following may be your solution. Step by step guide to install Pokemon Go on your PC or Laptop Files to Download Download and Install BlueStacks App on your computer. The installation is simple and you simply need to follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup. Once the program is installed, don’t launch it yet. We will have to download a few more files before we get started. Download KingRoot APK and LuckyPatcher APK. These apps will be used to gain Root access on BlueStacks player and then install our app as a system app. Download Mock Locations (fake GPS path) and Developer Options Tool APK. Finally, download the latest version of Pokémon GO. You can save all these files anywhere, however, Mock Locations should be saved in the Documents folder on your PC. Getting BlueStacks Player Ready for Pokémon GO. Open BlueStacks Player and wait for it to initialize. Once that’s done, navigate to the Android tab and from the left sidebar click on APK to install KingRoot APK. Once the app is installed, you will find it in the apps section. Run it once to gain root access on the BlueStacks Player. In the same way, install the Lucky Patcher app and run it. When prompted for Root Permissions, accept and close the app. Now to install the Location Spoofer app, open Lucky Patcher you just installed and then click Rebuild & Install at the bottom. Here, navigate to SD Card –> Windows –> Documents and click on the Mock Locations app to install it. Make sure you select Install as a System App when asked by Lucky Patcher. Install Developer Options Tool APK normally and turn the option off, if you see it turned on. Also, open up the Settings menu in BlueStacks and under location settings, make sure High Accuracy is selected. Finally, install the Pokémon GO app to start playing the game. Playing the Game Finally, when everything is set, open Lucky Patcher and launch the Mock Locations app. After the app is launched, click and hold on two locations on the map (the area which you want to explore in Pokémon GO), which then get selected. Next, click on the Play button. You will be asked to select a speed and here, give 4 kmph with 1 hour as a constraint modifier and start the path. Your Android device will now get your device location from the app which is the key ingredient to playing the Pokémon GO game. Now launch the Pokémon GO game, log in using your Google account and start playing the game. The avatar will follow the path you have given in the Mock Location app and you can collect Pokémons, take items from PokéStops and also do gym battles. Please make sure you turn off the AR (Augmented Reality) mode and play the game in a virtual environment. Conclusion So, that was all folks, you can now play Pokémon GO on your PC. Do ensure you don’t do big jumps on the map or you might get banned for location spoofing. Also, turn off the location of Windows PC if you are getting location errors while playing the game. But if you have a big park in your surrounding and it’s safe out there, I would insist you try the game there. It’s a lot more fun that way. Source
