I play 'World of tanks - Blitz' game on my phone extensively.
I am even moderator on it's Asia server forum.

The Blitz is also available for win10/8, but not linux.

Blitz's big brother for PC 'World of tanks' is only available for Win and Mac, on it's forum though has section to run it on linux through wine I think.
But it's not natively available for linux.

So I tried it's rival 'War Thunder'.
It's got a run script that downloads around 4-5 gb of game data.

And it did run in Fatdog64. (only tried in fatdog, but I think it should also run in others).

Only problem?
I do not have a dedicated graphics card.
Still using onboard graphics, so everything was in blocks, but it did ran.

Will have to buy a graphics card later.
Any suggestion/recommendation?

My PC is self built one from 3 years ago.
I just assembled pieces without any deep thought. So ram is not dual channeled.

intel i3, 6gb ram, intel dh61bf motherboard, no ssd (yet).


Anyway bottom line is, 'War Thunder' will run without any fuss... (in fatdog atleast).

If in coming days I buy a good graphics card, will look at high end games natively available for linux and will make list of what works without much fuss in Pup.

Can't promise anything yet though.

Hi Smokey & all,

Someone else brought this up earlier, but is there any way that the murga site can splatter on the main forum page that there is a Newsletter going on? Yes, the Newsletter is in English only, but (argue as we want) come on, English is the language of business/communications between most countries. If Pelo can do it, anyone can (just joking ya, Pelo, your English is way better than my terrible French!! Wink ) Possibly could the Newsletter, at the very least, have its own category like "Puppy Power" has??

Doggone it, finding this news & ongoings of this Newsletter in the threads isn't going to happen for a lot of people, as their attention span, & thus page-scanning ability, is worse than a gnat's Laughing


Hey Flash/John, any chance Smokey and/or this Newsletter can have its own category on the main Murga Puppy page???

smokey01,

I will say again.
You need to make your own topic about the newsletter.
Why?????
So you!!!!! can control what is in the first post of that topic.

Quick access, to the important info, you want people to know, needs to be in the first post in any topic.

You have had to tell people, several times, about stuff that could easily be put in the first post, if you had control of it.

@bigpup: that's true but it would create a fair amount of duplication.

Thanks

Not if you make your topic and get flash to lock this one.

You could put a post at the end of this topic pointing to yours and than get it locked.

Could PM kerl to edit the first post, stating smokey01 is the editor of Puppy Newsletter and all comments should be posted in his newsletter topic.
With a link to yours.
Have flash lock this topic from further posting.

You could have kerl change the subject of this topic so it did not say "Puppy Newsletter", so it would not clash with your topic.
He could make it something like "What Puppy Needs"

I've decided, after many requests, to start another thread for the Puppy Linux Newsletter. I hadn't done this previously as I thought it was a little disrespectful to kerl, the originator of this thread. I do understand the advantages of having a thread where I control the first post. The thread does need to remain open as this is where I can ask for articles, answer questions and communicate with contributors.
The new thread is: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=109754
