My Free Company (guild) in FFXIV dyed all their armor Pink for the month of October for breast cancer awareness. This is a small group of them, but they are all awesome! It doesn't cure cancer but for everyone to do this really fills ones heart with joy.

Final Fantasy XIV

Kubuntu 18.04 - Nvidia 390.48 on 1060

It appears that Proton is built from the devel tree and not the staging tree. When you play FFXIV (with dx9) you will start to run into issues with your sound going "corrupted" It will start sounding garbled. Also when you are around a lot of other players and more so when other players are casting you will start having issues with textures disappearing and your sound will degrade faster. Shortly in an area with a lot of players your client will crash. (this is the same as when you run wine-devel)

If you plan on running Eureka do not run in #SteamPlay client at this time. Everywhere else works well.

I need to do more to try to get the DX11 version to run, it crashes after the log in screen.

For DX11 running under the steam client

Run winetricks and add in xact

env WINEPREFIX="~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/312060/pfx" WINEPATH="~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Proton 3.7/dist/bin/wine64" winetricks

Then in winecfg modify the libaries d3d11, dxgi and xaudio2_0 - 9 to native

env WINEPREFIX="~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/312060/pfx" WINEPATH="~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Proton 3.7/dist/bin/wine64" winecfg

I will be testing this today for stability.

I am totally testing this out! If this is stable I swear I will be running all my games through steam!

I am sorry to hear that the company fell through, but what they did here is beyond awesome! It makes sense to release the source of software like this, and I always wondered why it was never done.

I try to donate to a open source project I use on a daily bases at least once a year if I can. This time I want to work on supporting wine. So I am trying to figure out. Is it better to support +winehq.org directly or through +CodeWeavers.

I mean WineHQ is the center of all the wine development, so one would think this is a obvious choice. But codeweavers is a business and they sell the support of the product and have people who full time work on the project.

I personally dont use crossover, but if the money goes to making wine better then I am all for it! I am interested in your opinions on this.

I have been running Kubuntu 18.04 for about a week now and I am just down right impressed. Things are running smoothly and better then they ever have! One things I would love to note is with Evolution.

https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Evolution

The company I work for uses exchange, so I had to find an app that works with it. Sure the webui works just fine, as long as you use firefox, it is kinda lame in chrome. I wanted a local client and have been using Evolution for a few years now. The 3.18.1-2 release in the Ubuntu 18.04 repository is absolutely fantastic! It is what one would expect from a commercial grade software. I hope with Canonical moving over to Gnome as the base desktop for Ubuntu that they continue with the great progress.

Thank you Gnome team! This rocks!
