BATTLETECH gets an opt-in Linux beta on Steam

SchattenspiegelHmm...menu and intro videos and character creation play nicely but I am stuck on the prepping for battle screen in the native beta :-(

Bug report browsing reveals quite a few similar issues in the windows version but I guess I will try to see if Lutris comes up with similar problems - another 7 hours download then ...

Have you tried adding LC_ALL=C %command% to the launch options? Fixed all the issues I had.

nitroflowHarebrained schemes(the actual developer, you know, not Paradox) as delivered on every single kickstarter they made, and linux release has also been delayed in past titles, so I don't know what most of you are on about?

Kickstarter of a multiplayer oriented game that said day one release. So much has been missed on this game (even things like preorder only content) for GNU/Linux users.
That's why I won't buy it full price. And GOG because I'll only play single player now (personal choice).

There was lack of communication, and unfulfilled promises. Finally having something doesn't negate that. That's what I'm on about anyway.

Fair enough, but that's not enough to take out the pitchforks and run to get a refund though.

I'm not suggesting refunds: kickstarter isn't a guarantee, it's more like an investment strategy, and it's up to each user to choose to be a backer.

Really hard to convey what I mean with just text, but I most certainly don't suggest pitchforks! Mostly just an analysis from me: I don't think that to an end user on GNU/Linux that the game is worth full price now. Reasons are important for feedback to HBS - if they want more money, give an earlier release and keep the promises made. And that's really all - but I stress this as a "feedback tone", not a "pitchfork tone".

Sorry if I wasn't clear enough but I wasn't referring to you specifically!

Oh, and if anyone is experiencing any weirdness when they start the game, try the old LC_ALL=C %command%

g000hMeanwhile I grabbed the previous August Monthly Bundle and got...

The Escapists 2 (early unlock)

Kona (didn't have it already)
Sudden Strike 4 (didn't have it already)

plus other non-Linux stuff (mostly unclaimed) such as Pathological Classic, The Surge, Forged Battalion.

Sudden Strike 4 is on linux too

Sorry, I should have been clearer. The first three games Esc2, Kona, SS4 *are* on Linux. I intended it to be read like that.

My bad, for some reason I totally missed that you mentioned it in your first comment.

razing32I actually picked up Postal 2 on a sale recently
Great fun till I got to the final boss on Sunday. That just felt impossible. Have to try the expansion.
But Postal 2 had life and color , and plenty of parodies/caricatures.
This seems to be Postal 2 with none of that.

Yes, that is the main difference between Postal 2 and this game. This is just edgy and violent for the sake of being edgy and violent.
