Installation, pre-game launcher, game menu and the game itself.
What does not
Lightning effects. Workaround: turn off shadows.
What was not tested
Did not test single-player or LAN: not available in beta.
The pre-game launcher does have a black window on top of it. Use alt+left mouse hold to move it off. The game ran fine on my high-end GTX 560 video card: it detected the card and 1900x1080 resolution. Everything defaulted to highest graphical settings and the game ran very well without hitches, with all graphical effects showing. Installed in a new bottles without any overrides necessary.

It appears the game doesn't always shut down properly. For the all versions, this will waste RAM (and possibly CPU time). For the Steam version, this will also prevent cloud syncs, and you will not be able to re-launch Torchlight 2 until the old process is gone.
Use killall Torchlight2.exe2 to force-kill it. In my experience, this has no negative effects (if you do it after trying to shut down the game properly first).
