Rivals of Aether: All characters in Rivals 2 will be free. No paid DLC characters, no grinding.
  • Im fine with grinding in a lot of games, but I expect Rivals 2 to be multiplayer and competitive first. I don't think it makes sense to make people have to grind for characters in a game where the main focus will be finding your main and playing online.

  • Signal downplays encryption key flaw, fixes it after X drama
  • Yeah they are, this problem is super overblown. Weirdly I've seen articles about this coming up for other apps too, like the ChatGPT app for MacOS storing conversation history in plain text on the device. Weird that this is suddenly a problem.

    If someone wants better security, the can use full disk encryption and encrypt their home directory and unlock it on login.

  • GNOME 47's New Font
  • Fair, they're pretty common but most fonts support OpenType variations which let you change parts of the fonts to other variants. Having a variant with distinct l's and I's is pretty common and Inter supports this.

  • GNOME 47's New Font
  • Like most modern fonts, it supports a lot of OpenType features, so this can be changed dynamically. Changing some settings by default has already been mentioned in the discussion around the change.

  • Zed on Linux is out!
  • Better/simpler experience out of the box. With Helix you install the LSPs for languages you use and you're set with a fully featured editor. Manual configuration is only needed for setting themes, keybinds, and small setting changes. It also feels much faster than a fully configured vim/neovim. Lastly its keybinds are inspired by Vim/Kakoune, but different from both.

  • Zed on Linux is out!
  • yeah the editor is being updated way too fast for nix to keep up. I'm sure it'll be easier once it has its stable release. I see the have a nix flake in the repo, it would be great if they added a package to the outputs instead of just a devshell, nix users could easily build it from master or whichever tag they want.

    There are solutions in this issue to the LSP issue. The editor would need to be built in an fhs-env, or they will need to find a way to make it uses binaries installed with nix instead of the ones it downloads itself. VSCode had a similar issue, so there is a version of the package that let's you install extensions through nix, and another that uses an fhs-env that allows extensions to work out of the box.

  • Signal under fire for storing encryption keys in plaintext on desktop app
  • it is true that they do not integrate with widgets and theming, but that's not exclusive to electron. GTK apps don't follow system widgets, nor will they follow theming on non-gtk desktops. I do also prefer desktop apps not be written in electron for the performance reasons you mentioned.

  • How do I know if a certain movies uploader on 1337x is trusted ?
  • I don't really have a YouTube video or blog post on hand to explain it, but I do have a degree in cybersecurity. Putting a malicious executable in a video is not a simple task. The most likely way for this to occur would require a vulnerability in the video player you are using that allows for code execution. If your system is up to date, it's unlikely the video player you're using is going to have a known vulnerability that allows this. If someone does have knowledge of a vulnerability like this that is not publicly known, it's very unlikely random 1337x users will be their target.

    Something I will recommend is if you are using Windows, make sure you do not have file extensions hidden in File Explorer, because then someone could trick you by simply naming an executable with .exe at the end. These types of tricks are more important for the average user to be cautious about than attacks utilizing steganography.

  • Signal under fire for storing encryption keys in plaintext on desktop app
  • Electron is capable of having just as good integration with the system as native applications. It's just that a lot of people are not optimizing these cross platform apps to have optimal integration with them. Electron has the safeStorage API that allows you to use kwallet or GNOME Keyring to securely store information. I believe both Discord and Spotify use this on Linux.

    Removing unwanted audio tracks and subs

    Do any of you have any software you can recommend for removing unwanted audio tracks and subtitles? Some of my shows and movies have multiple, and the Roku app does not follow the users set default language, leading to it playing the wrong track when autoplaying.

    I've tried unmanic, but its unfortunately too heavy for my server, just slows everything to a crawl.

    What Is Warfork and Its Dash Mechanic?

    I'm not the creator of this video, but I wanted to share it because Warfork is an incredibly fun game and more people should be playing it. It's not super populated, but you can usually find a good match. Highly recommend trying it if you enjoy (or want to try) arena shooters!

    Devs Announce Faceit Anticheat for BattleBit will be compatible with Linux, Steam Deck

    > Got this from a post on the alien site. From previous discussion on Lemmy it sounded like Linux users had good things to say about this game but were discouraged about the upcoming FaceIt implementation such that they wouldn't be able to join anticheat enabled matches. Those users and Linux gamers on the fence would probably appreciate hearing this news. > > With this announcement on the dev team's community Discord, it appears Linux users will NOT lose access to matches with anticheat. > > Source: https://discord.com/channels/303681520202285057/345616096470237186/1129780379218358282 > (BattleBit Remastered official Discord server)
