Posted by strider July 24, 2013, 11:56 p.m.

A few weeks after the release of Lutris 0.3.0, it's time to upgrade!

Changelog

This new version comes with a few new features:

  • Support for Steam games for Windows (tested with Bioshock, Darksiders and Titan Quest)
  • Support for ScummVM installers
  • When logged in the Lutris client, your game library will be synced from the website.
  • Initial support for xboxdrv, fully working with Fez and mostly working in Darksiders (some button are misconfigured, but the game is fully playable with a Xbox360 pad)
  • The usual various bugfixes

What's next ?

It seems that a lot of people are looking for a way to make Steam for Linux and Steam for Windows play well together (see on /r/linux_gaming or LinuxGameCast forums). When Lutris started, Steam for Linux wasn't available and only Windows Steam games were supported. Now, it's time to take this into account and provide a seamless integration between both client.

Since, there is no way to switch to Offline mode without restarting the client, only a single Steam client will be open a given time. In the next release it will be possible to play a Linux Steam game and then switch to a Windows game from Lutris itself. Also, thanks to the Steam API, it will soon be possible to import your Steam library directly into your Lutris library.
