So I’m just going to give a shout out to the devs of Lutris because I’m getting games to work like I haven’t before.
One game in question is Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 which would not start without an Xbox controller. When I still used Ubuntu and Wine by itself I set up sc-controller and Steam, and I couldn’t get past the most graphically-glitched game I’ve touched in Linux. This morning before going to work I was able to get a match in with correct graphics and I was very pleased. I’ll probably be writing an installer some time as soon as I can sync up keys to Xbox buttons, as I used the steam controller this time around.
Anyway, thanks guys! I’ll probably start getting so much more set up as soon as I can and get a 2-4 TB HDD to get all of my games installed to that.
