What works

everything I've tried so far:

  • the launcher, changing various settings (screen resolution, details etc)
  • playing the game @1440x900 resolution on high details
  • audio (using ALSA)
  • rendering, visual effects (except a minor graphical glitch with high quality shadows)
  • mouse and keyboard 
  • subtitles

What does not

  • shadows set to 'high' quality causes strange visual glitch in certain areas: coloured, transparent shapes appear on floors and objects.


What was not tested

completing the game; I've played the game for a few hours

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

The game doesn't require any native dlls or special configuration to run. Apart from a minor glitch in rendering when setting shadows on 'high' everything was perfect. Stable and good performance even on the highest details. Nvidia GeForce 250 GTS / driver 260.19.29
