If you have issues with Saints Row 2, Saints Row The Third, Saints Row 4 or Gat out of Hell you can now submit the issues directly to Virtual Programming on github.

Find their github here, with links to each.

Hopefully they will make all their ports nice and stable with people sending issues directly to them.

Have you been enjoying them? Let us know in the comments.

I find the performance on all of them to be a bit iffy, especially the stuttering. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I clocked 50 hours with Saints Row 4, lots of fun. I am looking forward to get both SR2 and SR3 later his year.

I've been playing SR2 and apart from a few issues probably spawned from i3, it's been great.

I love SW3, it's my favorite open-world game of all time. SW4 is great too, but isn't fun as SW3. The only thing that annoy me is their loading, it takes too long in comparison to Windows.

Takes >1min in Linux and a few seconds in Windows.

[EDIT] What is SW? Star Wars? Sorry, I mean SR.

I measured the time, actually is 2:31... It's really strange. I've a SSD but only for the OS.

ps. Is the same hardware used in Windows. And i'm using ext4 btw (I don't know if FS had much to do).

Using the ssd for the os and Hdd with ext4 for the game files too. Loading time is not the problem here too, under 4 seconds on every scene too. I think you need to post the bug in their github.

Regarding loading times (SR3) I experienced that on first loading pressing the Windows key and switching to game again makes it load alot faster, while I experienced infinite loading without doing this.

SR3 crashed once during mission, and everytime I quit the game. Otherwise works nicely
