[LINUX] Graphical fidelity way worse?
I downloaded the DRM free build from the HIB14, and the Linux version on Ultra looks nothing close to the screenshots and video's of the Windows version?

There are still some graphics features being worked on that should be fixed up by next week. Specifically SSAO and some Post Processing features are currently unavailable. Sorry about this.

But only on Linux, yes?

Thanks for doing a proper port and not wrapping it in Wine or something.

Yes sorry. Mac+Linux are missing a few graphics features that will come online over the next week or so (I'm the Mac+Linux developer).

Can you please also look into Vsync, that does not work here. I have fullscreen activated and so I have vsync, but still the FPS go far over 60 FPS.

@NoXPhasma
Thanks for noting that I believe I saw someone (probably you) mention that in another thread. It is on my radar and I will be addressing it. Just to confirm, you are on Linux correct? if you are please post the output of "glxgears -info" in your terminal. Thanks.

Vsync works for me using a GTX670 and the latest NVidia drivers.
NoXPhasma Mar 31, 2015 @ 5:52pm 
Yes, I'm on Linux, Linux mint 17.1 x64 to be precise.

Here is a screenshot, which shows my settings and the Steam FPS counter: http://i.imgur.com/j9wTMl2.png
148 FPS while it should be 60, if Vsync would work.

@NoXPhasma
Thanks. Yeah very odd someone with a very similar card/driver to you isn't having this issue. Regardless I'll be following up, looks like glxgears is vsynced.
NoXPhasma Mar 31, 2015 @ 6:06pm 
Maybe it can help you if I post some informations of my system:
Desktop: Mate 1.8.1
Window Manager: Compiz 0.9.11

I've also tried to use the default Window Manager of Mate (Marco), which doesn't work. Also using compton as compositor doesn't help here.
Vengeance Mar 31, 2015 @ 6:26pm 
If it is any help I use cinnamon.
Xpander Apr 1, 2015 @ 1:28am 
Works fine here with MATE 1.8.1
i dont use compiz though.

also using nvidia's { ForceCompositionPipeline = On }

but about the graphical fidelity it seems textures have lower resolution than the screen size.

for 1920x1080 i get this: Creating video textures menu w:1280 h:720

VSYNC works for me on Arch Linux (x86_64) Gnome 3.16, Intel Core i7 2600K, NVIDIA GTX 580 349.12 Drivers. I have sync to VBlank enabled in NVIDIA Settings.

Since, this game uses SDL 2 and does proper Fullscreen instead of Fullscreen Windowed (right?) I think the compositor shouldn't matter. A real fullscreen window should be unredirected and bypass compositor and X.Org.

Performance is good on 1440p and Ultra (50-70FPS). Only wish there was a way to get 2x or 4x MSAA, since there is still a bit of Aliasing going on with FXAA enabled. Haven't tried to override it with nvidia-settings.

EDIT: Forcing MSAA doesn't work, unfortunately. Time for a Titan X with Overclocked BIOS and a 4K Monitor. :D

@blackout24
The game actually is Fullscreen Windowed (is a bit more stable across all distros). I'm glad you are getting good perf :-D. The windows version doesn't have MSAA support so I didn't implement it for the OpenGL renderer.

@Xpander
"Creating video textures menu w:1280 h:720" is related to the background videos in the menu which were captured at 720p so they are always that resolution. Also upon first boot of the game a default texture quality is calculated based off the amount of dedicated video memory your system has. This detection may not be perfect, but you can manually override it in the video options menus (Texture Quality). You may need to restart after changing that setting.

@KnockoutGames thanks for information
the game is running super good :) keep up the good work and big thanks for bringing it to linux!
