PKHD Linux Beta Released
We just set the Beta to our Linux version live.
Please mind these known issues:

Please note that these issues are temporary and being worked upon!

* Open-source GPU drivers (Gallium rx00, radeonsi, Intel) may not work.
Those drivers may lack support for the necessary OpenGL extensions. For the
best experience we recommend the latest proprietary, vendor-supported GPU
drivers.

After several hotfixes and additional testing we have revised our standpoint and
actually advise open-source drivers for all non-NVIDIA GPUs. Especially
if the proprietary ones crash for you!
* Loading times may be slow because of shader compilations.
Not much can be done about this because of the way the Unreal Engine 3
handles shaders. :(
* Loading screen movies have no sound.
* Game controllers have no force feedback.
* No multiplayer compatibility with Windows.
* Multiplayer host might crash when a client is trying to join.
This is a bug in the Steam Client fixed in the beta - if it happens, opt in
for the beta: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/SteamClientBeta/discussions/1/864957817328247556/

==================================

You have to own Painkiller Hell & Damnation to get access to the Linux Beta version.
We would be glad for any relevant feedback. Thanks!

Maybe I have missed something, but how can I install the beta? On my library there is no Linux version of PKHD and there is also no beta I can choose. Do we need a password to activate the beta?

And btw: THANK YOU!

Doesn't even show up in my Linux games list yet. Maybe we have to wait a bit before everything settles.

According to this: http://steamdb.info/app/214870/#section_depots linuxbeta is still passworded... either that's wrong, or they'll need to give us a password :)

It seems that the Linux depot is not in the default package. We are working on Steam with that.

yiha, it appeard in my steam linux list.
I'll have to wait for the evening to play it though :(
MegalomaniacNG  [developer] Oct 16, 2013 @ 5:23am 
It should be included in everyones package. So everyone who has bought PKHD can access it without being in need to opt into a beta branch.

For me it's also not available, I guess I have to wait a bit. I have already restarted steam. But thanks for the fast fix, hope I can play it soon :)

Where did you buy PKHD? Maybe there is some edge case. But normally logout and login should work.
NoXPhasma Oct 16, 2013 @ 6:03am 
Now it works, I'm downloading now :)

After the intro movies the game crashes for me. The problem seems to be because of the spaces in the folder name, here is the error message of the crash I got on the terminal:
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
./PKHDGame.sh: 29: cd: can't cd to /home/nexxgen/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Painkiller

From the look of the script, the spaces in the folder name problem might be incidental. I have the same error but the line before talks about a library problem.
"./PKHDGame: error while loading shared libraries: libnvtt.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
