S3TC support
Can't play most of my games because it requires me to install S3TC support. How do I do this? I read somewhere to install ia32-libs and I did so, still nothing. Then I read to run
sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386

And it works, but it's very, very laggy. 10~ fps lowest settings in Linux Mint when on Windows (same system) the game can easily run at medium at 60fps

Try driconf. It should be in the software center for linux mint. It worked for me. I added you if you need help finding it and the setting you need to enable in it.

Thanks for the help, but I think I found my issue. I checked the drivers and apparently it's using 7640G rather than 7670M, which I assume is the cause of the low FPS. My laptop has both 7670M + 7640G. I need to figure out why it's using the wrong one as default.

Hybrid graphics are a pain, but you may want to check out bumblebee or optirun... I'm not familiar with the degree of support (if at all) for your particular hardware combination in the OSS drivers.
