Very uneasy, although with these things we have to wait and see unfortunately. Assume the worst, and hope for the best.

Egosoft to launch X4: Foundations on November 30th, hopefully with a Linux beta build

They have the minimum and recommended specs on Steam:

Minium

64 bit OS (really should be running 64 bit OS now, and games companies should not be writing 32bit anymore imho).
Processor: Intel i5-4590 2.7GHz or AMD equivalent
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 780/970 or AMD equivalent (Vulkan support required)
Storage: 12 GB available space
Additional Notes: These estimates may change until final release.

Recommended

Processor: Intel Core i7-6700K or AMD equivalent
Memory: 16 GB RAM
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1070 or AMD equivalent (Vulkan support required)
Storage: 12 GB available space
Additional Notes: These estimates may change until final release.

I am hoping to get an Nvidia 2070 at some point in the not too distant future.

The RPG 'Pathfinder: Kingmaker' is out with critical bugs in the Linux version

I don't think we get to use custom portraits either. Anyone worked away around this limitation?

Edit: It crashes if you try to browse, however you can still manually do it, just make sure they're named correctly and placed into the correct folder.

Interesting, does not work for me either, but throws a different exception:

Maybe we have multiple issues.

liamdaweApparently the Linux bug wasn't as easy to solve as they thought. Might be waiting a while.

I didn't back on Kickstarter, but I wonder if this serious bug was on the pre-release versions? Was it released for Linux back then?

slaapliedjeHopefully this doesn't turn out to be another Sword Coast: Legends, which looked absolutely awesome, then fell flat on it's face.

That was tragic, but I don't see this happening to Pathfinder as I saw over 10K users on now and I think it will hopefully have achieved 'critical mass' to continue.

recioalexOn the steam forums, 1 hour ago the devs said there will be a patch for this on 8 hours "We're not leaving the office until this is solved. "
That does make them sound good, but let's remember issues like this are there because enough testing simply wasn't done. Frankly, loading it up once on Linux would have shown them the issues.

So true, its their first game afaik, so I am giving them a bit of slack..ware haha. I'll get my coat...

Valve officially confirm a new version of 'Steam Play' which includes a modified version of Wine
22 August 2018 at 4:35 am UTC Likes: 9

"Users playing through Steam Play experiencing Linux-specific issues should be directed to Steam for support. Keep in mind users were most likely already playing your game using Wine; you just have better visibility into it now."

I pulled the quote (partially) from here:

https://steamcommunity.com/games/221410/announcements/detail/1696055855739350561

Maybe Valve see things that suggest there are more Wine users playing games than the developers even realize?
