Talk:Gaming

From ArchWiki

Adding new information about improving performance.

Hello,

Lately I am maintaining a small wiki of things I learned about while trying to maximize my gaming experience here: https://github.com/AdelKS/LinuxGamingGuide

I would like to update this wiki page with information from there. For starters I would like to write about two things that can make quite the difference: Futex2 & Fastsync/winesync (brought by TKG in linux-tkg and wine-tkg) and something I called the "cpuset trick" (c.f. the Github link)

Everyone okay with this ?

This is a very late answer and I can't speak for everyone, but from my point of view this is ok. Just put the information towards their respective articles and reference it from here if it is relevant for gaming. If it applies for gaming in general just put it here. If it improves performance in general, put it into the Improving Performance page. Also references towards good documentation and benchmarks are helpful and appreciated. -- LukasF (talk) 23:15, 6 October 2022 (UTC)
Correctly integrating the guide would take a decent amount of effort, since the guide touches so many different parts of the system. For now I have just added it to the "See also" section, but it would be cool to see something more ambitious some day. -- CodingKoopa (talk) 00:43, 7 October 2022 (UTC)

Tuning PulseAudio → PipeWire

Is any of the information in this section applicable for PipeWire? (E.g., PipeWire#Sound quality (resampling quality) suggests a different approach for "Using higher quality remixing for better sound" in this article.)

Would a new section for PW be appropriate here? Or updating the PA to be for PW instead? --Freso (talk) 09:23, 27 April 2022 (UTC)

A new section for PW would be appropriate here, since there are PW-specific configurations.. PA is not deprecated, so there's not a need to get rid of any of that content. With that said, try to keep general PW advice out of this article, and lean on the actual PW article as much as possible, via intrawiki linking. Thanks, CodingKoopa (talk) 06:39, 2 May 2022 (UTC)
