More about performance:

From the Arch Linux news: Increasing the default vm.max_map_count value

The vm.max_map_count paramater will be increased from the default 65530 value to 1048576.

This change should help address performance, crash or start-up issues for a number of memory intensive applications, particularly for (but not limited to) some Windows games played through Wine/Steam Proton. Overall, end users should have a smoother experience out of the box with no expressed concerns about potential downsides in the related proposal on arch-dev-public mailing list.



Maybe it's worth looking into this as well if you need a little performance "kick".

You can see the current value used on your system with:
cat /proc/sys/vm/max_map_count

If you're on Arch Linux, just update the system.
Fedora and Ubuntu should already use this value.
For other distributions: check their documentation on how to change this.

Hello, I have a small problem maybe someone can help me.
I have installed HD2 with Wine as described in the instructions. When I start the ServerLauncher, everything works. However, there are problems with the ServerManager (v2.9). When starting the server, the message “type help for help” is displayed in the console and the server terminates with an error. The ServerManager log only shows “IDLE Error”. What could be the reason for this?

No idea. We have a thread dedicated to hosting on Linux I guess it's not supposed to work properly on Linux.

By chance I came across the news that DXVK 2.4 has been released.
https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/releases/tag/v2.4
Perhaps it can improve HD2 gaming experience even further?
If it doesn't, take this post as a reminder that Linuxy stuff moves on and might be worthy checking things out every now and then

Don't forget we've got this great post by mökki medium about all this stuff.

Or if you're lazy (like me) I highly recommend checking Lutris out.
It allows you to switch to many wine versions, dxvk version and a ton of other options.

I've also updated the first post with the new IPs for the hosts file.
