    Been having a great time playing this game for the last few weeks.

    AMD FX-4170, 8Gb DDR3-1600, nVidia GTX560Ti 1Gb, Ubuntu 14.04 amd64, nVidia driver 331.38.

    The framerate isn't always perfect, but most of the time it's smooth (1920x1200, default Unity desktop). Only the occasional bug noticed, but loading a saved game usually gets around that (e.g. soldiers start standing in the air, noticed that only twice out of 50+ missions).

    fedora 20 + mesa r600 on 6950. xcom: eu crashes after intro mission, xcom: ew crashes instantly.
    did anyone try fedora + catalyst or ubuntu + mesa ?

    OpenSUSE 13.1 + fglrx, Athlon 4200+ 4GB ram RadeonHD7770
    Runs mostly fine, though slower than on windows (I could run max settings on winxp, on suse it's better left at medium). Occasionally crashes, some artifacts here and there, or missing objects (I had an invisible alien for a few turns in one of the missions), my biggest disappointment is with cutscenes - they run slowly, usually out of sync with audio (I even got a few times just the audio on a black screen and the video a minute later). The game also looks really bad when using a different resolution than the desktop one - it doesn't run fullscreen with screenmode change but runs in a maximized window without borders and does some kind of software scaling for a lower than desktop resolution.

    All in all it's not perfect, but it's bearable. I hope they'll patch those bugs I mentioned.

    Bought it, tried it. Port itself runs fine. I am impressed how my louse rig handles the Unreal Engine used ...

    However since I played the original XCOM, I cannot make myself like this incarnation. Have to force myself to play it a few times and see how it works out. If I bought it for full retail price, I'd be angry now ...

    No it wasn't, most other games worked fine, glxinfo (and i know to not only check "direct rendering") and radeontop all indicated it was running correctly.
    A restart seems to have fixed the performance issue though, so now I only got rendering errors and crashes (that kill my entire computer). A small success i guess? :/

    That's software rendering. You don't have the driver installed properly.

    So this is yet another UE3 game ported to Linux? How many are we up to now?

    Edit:

    Also is this the second Mac porting house and publisher to enter the Linux fray in connection with 2K and Firaxis?

    another solid triple A game on linux. graphics quality is good, peformance is no issue. loading times are few seconds(unlike some other unreal engine games, looking at you painkiller)
