Selected Test Results

What works

As far as I can tell, pretty much everything.

  • Single player
  • Multi player
  • Maximal graphics settings with minimal graphical bugs (subtle, bearable flickering of some particular shadows at times)
  • Great performance (tested on Ryzen 1700 + GTX 1080, constant 60FPS with rare bearable slowdowns in certain locations, these might be present in Windows too)
  • The game hasn't crashed once in the ~6 hours I have played it for, so far

What does not

  • If game ever loses context (alt+tab), mouse control breaks, sometimes buttons LMB/RMB, almost always mouse camera look
  • Joystick support seems finicky (but generally works)
  • Generally I have the impression the input is a little bit weird - not delayed, but for instance I am having great trouble using any of the "2 buttons at the same time" commands, like kick (directional + fast attack) or leap attack. This could be user error, but the difficulty seems so intense that I doubt this is the case.
  • Game is unplayable with CSMT disabled
