Just wondering what everyone is running. And, have you had any show stoppers along the way?SystemCPU: AMD 640 X4RAM: 5GBGPU: Nvidia 560TiDriver: 310OS: Ubuntu 12.04 32-bitProblems:SS3BFE is the only game that has a MASSIVE bug with my setup. It fails to capture the mouse. This disables my ability to rotate the full 360. The critters at Croteam have promised a fix Monday’ish.November 19, 2012 at 7:33 pm #68290ZimberMember

Venn’s favourite colour is dark and Jordan’s does not exist.November 21, 2012 at 5:10 pm #68298johnny2kMemberFirst let me say that, Venn, at first it sounded like your favorite color was “dog” but that’s not a color. Since you’re locked in a dark cell all the time I figured you must have said “dark”. So, I watch again and, yeah, I’m pretty sure you said “duck” but it could have also been “dog”. Your favorite color is probably “dog”. Which is a weird coincidence because Jordan said he doesn’t have a favorite color. Probably because he IS a dog and only sees in shades of grey (50 shades of grey?) .System info. at the bottom as provided by Steam, slightly modified to remove blank or really uninteresting information. In addition to the following I’d like to add that I use AwesomeWM, my Steam directory is symlinked, and I can’t figure out how to add non-Steam games.? ~ ls -al /home/johnny/Steamlrwxrwxrwx 1 johnny johnny 17 Nov 8 16:02 /home/johnny/Steam -> /data/Games/SteamIssues I’ve faced:There haven’t been any show-stoppers but a few issues have come up that I resolved by upgrading Ubuntu to 12.1 and the Nvidia driver to 310.14.Serious Sam 3: BFE had some serious errors any time I looked at a light source: frame rate would drop horribly and the shaders (I think, I’m not so good with graphics terminology) would act all messed up and display some interesting shapes. It was unplayable until I upgraded.Team Fortress 2 stuttered frequently and was generally slow to load. Played with nvidia-settings to get the game FPS at a good level. I’m unsure of how to enable an FPS display but I’ll work on that. I noticed that changing graphics settings in game seems to freeze the software for a bit. After a while of waiting it comes back to life. I’m working on getting some benchmarks to contribute to a reddit post that shows Windows vs. Linux performance.Killing Floor hasn’t had problems yet but it has been slow.

It all runs surprisingly well for me, past the initial effort to get it installed on Gentoo. TF2 runs at ~65FPS, which is only about 15-20FPS less than I get in Windows (but not really noticable to me), and was very stable while playing it for many hours. Serious Sam 3 is probably the best looking native Linux game I’ve seen and runs very well too, I’ve not had any issues yet besides the odd stutter.
I’ve not tested them specifically, but I get the feeling that the updated Nvidia drivers make a big difference, as I keep seeing people with better specs than me getting worse performance on older drivers.
I’ve had some issues with sound, the Steam overlay, and the client updating at some point, but I think these are mostly down to using an unsupported distro and not having all the dependencies/settings that they expect. The only problem left is that it keeps changing my mouse pointer, which is quite annoying. Multi monitor support also isn’t great, but that’s always been the case with any sort of games on Linux for me.November 24, 2012 at 12:39 pm #68301BruceLEETMember

Only tried TF2 so far…
Lower FPS than Windows.. Average 180 on Windows.. 60 on Linux..
Lots of Micro-stutters. (every 5-10 seconds there’s a ~200-500ms lockup).
Lots of missing letters. Screenshot
Favorite Color?.. Gray?
