    I followed the support instructions (erase appcache folder & make a file check) but doesn't work either. Actually, there is no executable in the folder at all.

    I hope they'll fix it soon!

    A+

    Yeah, we've seen this before. You can try and see if there is any Linux beta you can join, but I doubt that.
    It usually means that the game will come out really soon.

      I'm sure CD Projekt Red will make a proper announcement when the release is ready. Don't expect anything to work as of now.

        Yep, what Spittie said. Definitely seen this before. I can't remember the last game I saw it with... Maybe Metro Last Light?

        Anyway, I'm downloading the game right now, abusing my work connection.

          Closed depot

          It appears the game is very much a work in progress and there's only an encrypted binary for it right now (and I think you probably have to be a part of the beta to even get that):

          Anyone know if you can volunteer?

          That said, I can live with the wait. It's good enough that it's happening and not in the distant future.

            Maybe they also have the RED-Kit and patched version available?
            There are dzip tools for linux

              I hope the linux version doesn't share the same shadow dithering the DX9 version had.
              It was so ugly and distracting that I never finished my playthrough on windows.

                I always thought that was a problem with wine. Do you mean to tell me it happens under windows?

                  Disable Sharpen or live with the shadows like that.

                    What is this shadow dithering that you speak of? I don't doubt you, I'm just not sure what you're referring to.

                        Ouch, not like they couldn't've afforded a blur on top.

                          For a game that is otherwise pretty gorgeous (and is aging quite well IMO, unlike Skyrim which was pretty bad on release), the dithered shadows is a real eyesore. I wouldn't mind having it as an option for lower end machines, but a more conventional shadowing effect would be preferably if it is technically possible for the engine. I'd even take the F.E.A.R. brute force method of layering translucent textures.

                            I see JPEG compression artifacts but no problem with the shadows…

                              Nope, they are not JPEG artifacts, at the edge of the shadows there is dither when "Sharpen" is actived in the settings. Disabling it makes it go away.

                                Some FXAA tests from way back, read info in the lower right side, click on the cog in the upper right side -> View Full resolution: http://imgur.com/a/SpScJ#0

                                It gets fixed using Ubersampling but that means you have a powerful GPU to begin with: http://is.gd/M3UOEU & http://is.gd/ZJOAqw & http://is.gd/OD0zT9 & http://is.gd/CG4L3k & http://is.gd/ZuTy3z
