    Here's a quote by feral on the Mad Max port concerning the Mesa drivers:

    "We developed and tested the game with AMD GPUs and right up until approval (and beyond). We pushed really hard but sadly there were a few to many edge cases on AMD GPUs meaning support wasn’t possible in the end.

    In most cases the game runs just fine on modern AMD GPUs (2GB VRAM+) that can support Mesa 11.2/RadeonSi however some cards and situations can have issues linked to driver issues. All of the driver issues that effect this title are being worked on / logged in freedesktop. Many of them should be fixed in future versions of the kernel 4.9 or the latest git of Mesa.

    AMDGPUPRO does render correctly but in most cases Mesa is faster and more stable at this stage.

    We’ve put a lot of effort into getting support for all vendors for every game we’ve released on Linux. We report issues with the close source driver teams and support the Mesa project with bug reports, Steam keys and in some cases submitting code fixes. We’ll keep up this effort with all the driver teams as part of our Linux development process to help push Linux gaming forward for everyone."

    I guess people just love to complain about feral ports.

      With that logic opensource driver will never be supported, only in existing and already compiled so binary only form on existing checked out distro version of no choice

        Oh no, they'll have another excuse by then I promise.

          Wow, indeed, why would anyone use DX12 at all?? I mean, for OpenGL vs DX story there were reasons to go with DX, but as for Vulkan vs DX12, AFAIK, there's none, they're very similar.

            Microsoft uses the api for their xbox too, which has millions of customers. But that's the only reason, apart from being paid by Microsoft to use it (titles they publish themselves like quantum break or forza).

              Nope. They can support open source drivers if they want to. But in this particular instance where either they know open source drivers don't work and simply haven't checked, they cannot issue the statement you suggested: "Feral might at least say, opensource "i compile/fix my drivers"tm git users - supported". Because if they said that, people would expect actual support "because feral said it works".

                We should look at this from several perspectives. Linux is evolving even more by a stronger desire of people to get rid of Windows. This brings more and more supporters but also simple users. We shouldn't make things that complicated so as long as the Kernel drivers in actual supported releases of distributions are not in a nice condition it might damage the reputation of publishers. It's absolutely reasonable not to take these risks.

                If you have the newest Ubuntu version almost any game runs well with an RX 480 etc. Some still have to be launched with specific launch options though and the performance is not perfect yet. The dev drivers of the Padoka PPA are currently really close to the performance of the Windows drivers but they are not as stable as the actual releases. Instead of complaining one should help improving AMDGPU. AMD has opened the interfaces to make the driver implementation suit open source philosophy. If we can reach a well performing level of all Kernel modules so people will never have to care about proprietary drivers it would be a massive advantage and promotion for the Linux desktop.
                When you see how fast AMDGPU has improved over the last months you shouldn't be that impatient

                  When this round of games started development DX12 was ready to use but Vulkan was "coming soon".

                  Situation is different now; hopefully API usage in the next round of games (where development started recently) will be different too.

                    Hopefully this is also the case with Deus Ex. I will buy it when my new GPU arrives, but if it does not work I will of course request a refund.

                      Hello, I work for Feral and I'll be popping in to the forums on occasion to answer any questions you have about our games .
                      Although we can't provide support for AMD GPUs at the moment, anyone looking to play with an AMD GPU with Mesa may find this post by Edwin from Feral useful: https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gamin...linux/d9jxkz4/
