HowTo / Notes

Raising the per-application file descriptor limit on your machine

When starting Stronghold 2 on most machines it will silently fail because it cannot open enough files at once.

You can raise this limit, adding (as root)

*               soft    nofile          65535
*               hard    nofile          65535

to /etc/security/limits.conf (replace the * with your username if you believe these limits are anything but stupid and would be unsafe to raise for all users) and logging out and back in.

The limits currently in effect can be checked using ulimit -Sn and ulimit -Hn.

How to use hybrid graphics switch Open Source drivers Intel/AMD, AMD/AMD and improve performance

This should work for any app, if you have Intel + AMD or AMD + AMD with open source drivers. 

If you have laptop with hybrid graphics cards. You can launch game with command:

env DRI_PRIME=1 vblank_mode=0 wine ~/path/to/your/exe/file

In case of using command, you get swich to powerful graphics card and disable vsync for more FPS.

If you have Mesa drivers 17.x.x or more, you can use this command:

env DRI_PRIME=1 mesa_glthread=true vblank_mode=0 wine ~/path/to/your/exe/file

Last command is most best in performance that you can get in this moment, you can use it for any wine application that you need. But argument mesa_glthread=true may not always work, so if your app crash, remove it.

For Steam users, you can set environment variable of any applications in properties. 

DRI_PRIME=1 mesa_glthread=true vblank_mode=0 %command%

(It will work only with native Steam for Linux) For Wine, you have to start Steam or game with those arguments
