We have just set up a beta on Steam, called "linux_public_beta". This is where we're going to be posting our betas of work-in-progress so far. This first beta contains the following:
- Multimonitor support
- Improved support for gamepads, and workarounds for problems in xpad
- Improved stability.. the game should crash a lot less now. We still see the occasional crash on exit, inside the nvidia driver. We're working on finding out if this is an issue with the 331.38 driver or with our code.
Note that this doesn't yet include any of our DX9 multithread rework, as that's still in progress. We thought we'd put this out here so that we can get some feedback from you guys on what we have done so far, and also show that we really are working on making this port better :)
Please opt-in, and tell us how things are. You can head on over to the Github issue tracker for the game, and post there:https://github.com/KillaW0lf04/The-Witcher-2-Issues
EDIT: Trolling comments will be deleted!
EDIT 2: I will not be drawn into Native vs eON ports. This is not the place for it.
