- Installation worked fine.
- I had to restart the patcher several times because it would crash every few minutes while downloading game data. The patcher would pick up where it left off just fine though.
- I played several hours without any problems whatsoever.
What does not
Poor shadow quality. I just played with shadows off and everything was fine.
What was not tested
No single player or LAN play in this beta. I haven't tried playing with others in internet play either.
As others mentioned the pre-game launcher had a black box over it and alt-drag does indeed move it. No overrides required. I played several hours with no problems.

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).
