Klei have been working on improving Mark of the Ninja: Remastered with a recent beta that's now live for everyone. Two Linux-specific issues were found and fixed.

Released back in October, Mark of the Ninja: Remastered bundled the DLC of the original game along with some graphical enhancements, much improved gamepad support for Linux gamers along with much better multi-monitor handling on Linux too. I wasn't honestly expecting it to be improved as much as it has.

The trouble is, the game was practically broken for AMD GPU users. Not any more! Klei put out a patch yesterday which should fix the problems along with a crash when shutting the game down on Linux. Another Linux-specific fix, was some kind of interference from motion sensors in the PS4 controller which should no longer happen.

Not stopping there, the patch also includes some performance improvements so you should see less hitching and stuttering during gameplay as it will now save games asynchronously. The mouse cursor should also be hidden when using a gamepad, along with multiple other fixes. See the full list here.

It's currently only available on Steam and I think it's well worth it, excellent game.

Great news. Switched recently to a AMD card and had to pause the game because of that.

Good to see that they now know to test their releases on AMD too. All developers should do that.

Wow, they actually care a lot, they might have one dev using Linux + AMD ^^. It's a shame I can't justify buying the remastered version when I haven't finished the original (it honestly feels like I bought this game yesterday when it was just out).

To be honest all devs should do Linux + AMD. I personally have a problem with the way nvidia does things from a business standpoint. They really like using their own proprietary tech instead of open standards. I could go on a rant about why nvidia is bad as a company especially in a FOSS ecosystem like Linux. Also hi one of the other 11 people on this site with a Fury.

That's a bit off-topic, sorry about that.

Hi! :D Best bang my buck could buy doing the crypto craze. Worth it, although it tends to run very hot (~80°C, mostly). BTW, I'm very tempted to have a look at a bios editor available on some forums, that lets you enable extra compute units on your Fury if they are not damaged , and turn it into a Fury X. Silicon lottery and all The complicated part would be getting this to run on Linux; the good part is my card is a Sapphire with a bios switch, so I don't risk bricking it. I might wait until I hit framerate issues in GPU-bound games, which hasn't been the case already, I'm just sharing the tip.

I also agree on your stance, and it seems that more and more people (Stardock interactive?) in the game industry think the same.

Speaking of the GoL system info, looks like Whitewolfe80 needs to update his :D

I too have the sapphire tri-x card and I have also thought about trying it but I could never get up the courage. I bought the fury on launch day so I payed a pretty penny for mine. Even if I could in theory switch to the other firmware I'm a bit chicken. Also I believe the thermal targets are the fury are 75C with the normal mode and 80C in the OC mode. I believe the OC mode also adds like 25W or something to the power target. So while 80C is hot it is what the fury was designed to run at.

I am throughly confused by your system specs as it says you have an Nvidia Radeon RX 570???? Although as MayeulC pointed out you should update them.
