Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installing, launching, general play (played about 3 hours solo)
  • Multiplayer, joining through Steam Friend's list (played about 2 hours with a friend)

What does not

  • Performance is not as good as Windows. This game doesn't have an OpenGL implementation, so you're stuck with DirectX.
  • Occasional flickering on volume textures (e.g. clouds)
  • Setting the 'Tether' key to any special character (like semicolon ';') - may be a bug in the game for Windows or something specific to xserver configuration.

Workarounds

In general, Unreal Engine 4 overrides for other games help, but a notable performance boost can be had by appending to drive_c/users/{user}/Local Settings/Application Data/Astro/Saved/Config/WindowsNoEditor/Engine.ini:

[/Script/Engine.RenderSettings]
r.AmbientOcclusionLevels=0

What was not tested

  • Interplanetary travel
  • Activating Teleportation/Alien nodes

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary
