Linux Performance Problems
Haven't played this game for years, but the performance seems to have gone massively downhill. It used to be a fairly trivial game to run, but even though I've upgraded my computer/GPU a huge amount since I last played, it's now laggy and impossible to play.

Seems to be mostly surrounding mouse settings. If I turn off aim assist, horizon tracking and virtual joystick things get better. Still not really playable though. Think it's the motion blur causing the problems. Everything is fine when not moving the mouse.

I suggest posting your specs, your in-game options, and other relevant system info including your distro so the dev (and anyone else interested) can have a better idea of what the cause could be if it's not actually something about the game.
I haven't really seen performance issues while trying out the new version on 1080p and "fantastic" settings (though admittedly I haven't gotten into really big battles), even with aim-assist and track-horizon enabled (which I usually disable).
My system: Arch Linux x86_64 with Xfce4 as DE, AMD Phenom II 3.00 GHz, 16 GB ram, nVidia GeForce GTS 450 1GB, regular HDD drives. I run steam-native.

Sorry for the trouble, insert "this isn't something we've seen during testing" here.

It's hard to say what's going on, but your observation about mouse input is interesting. As a shot in the dark, I wonder what would happen for you if the blur effect were to be disabled. I would need to add an option to an upcoming patch for this.

Switched to the testing branch and it all seems to be working fine now. Maybe it was just my system.
