BATTLETECH for Linux updated, releases Flashpoint expansion – some thoughts
1 December 2018 at 11:06 am UTC

JDo hope the paradox update their repo's some time soon.....

if you try install via paradox launcher then....
.... Repository battletech-linux-64-failed-upload does not exist\ ...

it now appears in the list, but refused to download the program - manually logging in and out of the paradox launcher fixed this for me, it is now downloading the files -- fingers crossed it will work!

after a long and arduous download Battletech v1.3 is downloaded but flashpoint not there yet, although it shows that I do own flashpoint on paradoxplaza - but think this is a paradox launcher issue

Hi, should have read this first - thought the Steam icon meant it was fully read but alas....... anybody got it working with SteamPlay?

BATTLETECH gets an opt-in Linux beta on Steam

Jthey have just announced Linux release with Flashpoint expansion end November....

At least is coincides with a major expansion, which should help multiplayer....

The cynic in me notes that they said they "expect" the (GNU/Linux) version to release then. Which sounds to me very non-committal, so I wouldn't trust them to deliver it then really.

so very very true.... I still dont get it - I played the Beta in Jan and there were no problems....

what will probably happen is that GNU/Linux gets released but the expansion does not work for Linux.....

Luke_NukemI've been addicted to this for a while now - playing on macOS.
The game is everything you could hope for, and more.

How's the performance on macOS?

It's... reasonable. I had to turn anti-aliasing off, and reduce effects details - but you know, running on a MacBook Pro with an RX560, and probably with the last openGL version whatever that was. It's good enough for a game or two.

I fully expect the Linux performance to be kilometers ahead.

It’s a metal game... And that’s what you’ll get out of a 560, it’ll be the same on windows.

Oh cool! \m/.

But yeah, honestly though, even with a few deets turned off or down, it still looks great and runs fantastic. Super enjoyable game.

Yes I to my shame have been playing it on Windows.... (actually the one reason I have booted up windows in the last months....
Given that the Linux beta on steam was months away it appears really really odd that it will take so long to finish the last bits (at that time I ran into few problems)....

also performance is really poor IMHO, i have a laptop with i7 and gtx1060 and it struggles to get to any decent frame rate unless you turn down effects as described (handles most other things just fine), gpu seems to be stressed 100% all the time....
