    The linux icon is there, along with the specs but the game doesn’t appear in the client yet. Hope it will come for the week end!

    Game Options > Advanced PhysX – NOPE

    Edit: I guess it’s not the Advanced PhysX because it’s doing it all the time now.
    Edit x2: Very High = NOPE, in both 2033 and Last Light… funky.

    Happens to me as well on highest quality settings. Gotta play on high instead:/

    I was able to get the game to start by adding

    ‘MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.0 MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=400 %command%’

    to the launch parameters but, not so surprisingly, the screen is black while the audio and menus, and even the game run. Trying to see if there’s any way to coax some graphics out of this bitch. Intel Ivybridge graphics. :P

    Depends on how well it runs on the GTX560

    About to fire it up on the AMD/Radeon 7950 box. I’m expecting to cover my BBQ sandwich with crash-o-matic, flickery-flavored nope sauce.

    I found out that fglrx stands for “Fuck! Graphics on Linux? Ridiculous eXpectation…”

    In theory it stands for Fire Graphics Layer Radeon X, but yours does sound more accurate!

    It was ’bout like I figured. 5 minute load, game stopped for 5 min when I tried to go from low to medium graphics. I reckon it’s about time to trade in the old AMD bitcoin miner card for a 770. But, Metro 2033 Redux runs about as good on the 750Ti as Metro LL did, so I’m sorta pleased. Sadly, Witcher 2 kicks Redux’s butt on the AMD machine!

    With my current rig, the whole Linux gaming experience will stop at Metro Redux. Not that my machine is not powerful enough to run the game, but I’ve had this bug I’ve experienced since Serous Sam 3 was released.
    The game freezes and I get a new frame drawn every 5 seconds or so and I get those messages in dmesg.

    [ 240.531786] NVRM: Xid (PCI:0000:01:00): 32, Channel ID 00000007 intr 00800000
    [ 240.531985] NVRM: Xid (PCI:0000:01:00): 69, Class Error: ChId 0007, Class 00009097, Offset 00001618, Data 00000004, ErrorCode 0000000d

    Since now, I have always managed to workaround this bug by tweaking the graphics options, usually by turning Anisotropic Filtering completely off (which is not possible in Redux).
    This is not software related: I’ve tried a bunch of different distros, drivers and WMs and the issue was still here, it even happened on Windows (which I can’t really confirm since I boot on Windows for 1 hour every 6 months or so).
    So, this is an hardware issue (my guess is something’s wrong with the motherboard) and I’m not upgrading anything now since I’m leaving to the US in less than 4 months.

    I’ll just have to wait, see you in April, Redux.

    The glitches on Very High seem to be related to the latest nvidia beta driver
