What works

  • Campaign
  • Videos
  • Settings
  • Skirmish
  • Gameplay

What does not

Performance is comparatively very bad. Framerates appear to be in single digits, at the very least sub 15, compared to windows where I get 40-50.


What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Performance is the biggest killer as the game becomes enormously sluggish to play. Menues are also very very slow inside the game. The main menu is snappy and actually runs better than on Windows. The telltale "hitching" and skipping that occurs in windows is missing.

Arch Linux performance

You should know the nvidia performance on arch is the really REALLY unstable thing. If you want to use Linux for gaming, you should use ubuntu instead. The latest nvidia drivers for Arch are often has a serious performance drops.
