Chivalry: Medieval Warfare To Begin Linux Port Testing

By Guest - | Views: 20,132

Hi everyone, we'd like to get your help in testing Chivalry for Linux and Mac OS X.

Everyone who owns Chivalry should now have access to the Linux and OS X versions. Currently you will need to switch to a Beta branch to access this, the "linuxtesting" branch (for both OS X and Linux).

To access the port testing beta from the Desktop Steam client, right-click on Chivalry in the library, click Properties, click on the BETAS tab, and choose linuxtesting from the drop-down.

From Big Picture, open up Chivalry's page in the Library, move left to "Links & More", and down to "Select Beta..."; open this, choose "Ports testing (Linux+Mac)" from the drop-down, and choose OK.




If you can't see the branch, you may need to restart Steam first.

The Linux and Mac OS X builds should run without any additional dependencies required so long as you have Steam installed. Steam should include all the necessary libraries.

Performance on Linux should be roughly what it is on Windows for the same hardware, with potentially up to a 10% difference or so. OS X should be similar. Performance differences are going to come from differences between UE's renderers, and between OpenGL drivers.

We don't have much in the way of Mac hardware, so any performance reports we can get would be helpful, especially if you can compare performance to the game running natively in Windows, but even if not. Comparisons on Linux would also be really helpful.

Please post any bug reports, performance reports, or other feedback to:

I see the linux beta option and I have selected it but Steam still says "Chivalry: Medival Warfare is not available on your current platform."

Modified the Steam app configuration a bit, it should work now. It may take a few minutes for Steam's servers' cache to update, and you may have to restart the client as well. If it still doesn't work, can you pastebin Steam's logs, or at least any relevant ones? Thanks!

Great news! I held off on buying the game during the sale because I want it to count as a Linux sale. It's still marked as Windows-only on steam, so if I buy it now and only play it on Linux, will that count?

Oh, it works now. Splendid. I have been waiting for this for ages.

Fuck yeah. After what happened to insurgency, and the official lack of support of witcher 3 for linux at launch moment as has been stated when they have unveiled the official requeriments (well, at least to me, I know you also knew from before, but the official requeriments were the official word to me), finally this is great news of having a very good game to us. This game is AAA to me guys. Its fine action if you want to fight with swords in first person. No other game matches chivalry in his field.

Very good day.

I would ask the same. If we buy and install only the beta/test-build, will it count as Linux or Windows sale?

I suppose that if you play the beta version of the game then the "most hours after 7 days" will come to play.... can't be sure, though.
I've been waiting this game for quite some time, can't wait to- wa-wait a second, what about the Deadliest Warrior DLC? I can't play the game without it
