    OK, guess the "PC platform" copy goes back.

    Thanks...
    I don't have the game, but according to SteamDB the Linux depots are seperate with XCOM 2 and the Windows depot files from the boxed version will be useless then.

    Bummer... the game crashes on launch for me using radeonsi from the griever repo on Fedora (mesa 11.2). I have a R7 360.

    Edit: Apparently Xcom crash if you have openVPN running. From What I heard its because it doesn't like the MAC address for the TUN interface.

    Does anyone know a place with the most discussion regarding getting it to work as good as possible on amd gpus? Tried a bit with Catalyst and it worked but wasn't really playable as far as i'm concerned. Crashed too.

    (As I wasn't the one who explained this already), yes. I was thinking how the situation looks like for someone who doesn't have idea how the parts of the equation add up.

    If Intel mesa really runs out of the box then the port would be better than expected as eON ports usually check for OpenGL 4 and GLSL 4.10 - if needed or not.
    Btw. Steam has an optional FPS counter as overlay, then you see at least the current FPS in a screenshot.

    I think "We have completed the entire game on an AMD machine" means that they've played through the entire game like once! :-)
