Hmmm, I bought the game on their site, but I can't figure out how to download it... Doesn't appear in my Humble Bundle list of games...

It should be noted that HIB5 owners also have a new version up for download as of January 7. No idea if it fixes all of the performance problems, but most of the in-game and graphical glitches should be fixed. Will need to download it to give you guys more info.

Which drivers are you using and where? I never got any crashes, just performance problems and glitches, and that was with the version released in August. Diamond HD4670 with the R600g drivers.

I was about to ask the same question.  I wasn't crashing with the last version either, so far as I had played into the game anyway.  I will have to try the latest version when I get home and report back later.  Right now I have installed the latest Catalyst (13.1), and I am on an AMD HD7870 running on Ubuntu Studio 12.10 64 bit.  I haven't run Psychonauts since I updated the driver, so that may make a difference as well.  I'll see how well this new arrangement works.

Thanks for the tip, I had no idea! I'll warm up my BitTorrent client...


I sure hope this version solves the annoying glitches. If so, I might give it another go and try to finish the game (damn Meat Circus! ><)
