🤓 Painted the button box, added more buttons and the LCD and set it to playing the DRADIS animation[1] of the Pegasus just for show:

Next is wiring everything up (and when that is done finishing the frame for the display) and add decals.

Same thing really to see how it feels:

[1] The Loop was created by David Gian-Cursio (https://www.gian-cursio.net/2016/07/battlestar-pegasus-dradis-screens/) for Diaspora: Shattered Armistice (a total conversion for the FreeSpace Open engine).

Hm… Diaspora: Shattered Armistice ( ) didn’t want to start any more. Found only this in the launcher:

The executable did not generate a flag file

Turned out my install was missing some 32bit lib:

ldd /home/beko/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-ge-6.16-1-x86_64/lib/wine/i386-unix/openal32.dll.so
linux-gate.so.1 (0xf7eca000)
libopenal.so.1 => not found
libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0xf7c8f000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf7ecc000)

A dnf install wine-openal.i686 fixed this for me.

Yes, I know there is a native Linux PC version but it’s a pain in the neck to compile 🤷

Man, gotta say I was _so_ happy to read this little update. I was already afraid that the Covid got you or sth. Has been a while since I could marvel at your Viper 🤓

You’re one heck of an inspiration to me @Baz 🙏

I sure am playing a lot of space pew pew over the last months. Took a lot of screenshots too and it’s kinda hard not to drown my timeline with screenshots every day. Today I sifted through the pile and found a bunch I’d like to share (some again) so here is a little gallery of (mostly) space simulation games I play on my Linux PC. And I’ll keep making that point until I can browse the web without getting daily reminders by random strangers claiming that gaming on Linux PC is not possible. Cuz it is.

Added on 5th January 2022 and played with whatever Lutris thinks best. I really was going to hold out on Star Citizen a little longer but I got it as a gift to my birthday. My GPU is definitely at it’s limit here. Will probably have to give it some more time. I mean it’s Alpha and all but hey, it _does_ work.

This I play mostly under Proton with the Primary Buffer Panel whenever possible. It’s just the most fun this way (kids love it too).

 

The more recent X series have native Linux builds but work also perfectly fine with Wine.

 

Both run via Lutris and with Proton-GE and usually with my DIY Headtracker.

 

FlightGear runs native on Linux and Fly Dangerous does have a native Linux build but due to an issue with terrain generation being single threaded I use Proton for this one too until this is solved. No Man’s Sky runs perfectly with Proton.

I play all of the above with my X52 Pro H.O.T.A.S. and some with my DIY headtracker stretched over three displays in a so called multihead setup. Let me know if you’ve any questions how this can be set up.
