Latest version released on Steam or vrchat.net
Video; some 3D
What does not
Missing textures/models (nvidia graphics driver specific)
What was not tested
VR devices etc
Microphone broadcasting (can hear others just fine though)
Running on 64-bit prefix (will refuse to install on 32bit)
GLSL must be set to enabled.
Direct draw renderer must be set to OpenGL.
Lastly, click the Play button in Steam, set "Launch in desktop (Non-VR) mode," and HOLD (LEFT) SHIFT DOWN WHILE CLICKING OK until the Unity pre-game graphics menu shows up. Change the graphics setting from "VRHigh/VRLow" to "DesktopLow", otherwise you will end up with a purple or black screen (depending on GLSL setting). It is recommended to tick on "windowed mode" as the mouse controls can act up all funny (happens to me in Subnautica). (The VRchat window can be maximized afterwards.)
Did not have a VR device or microphone to test with.
Due to using the closed source nvidia driver with GLSL enabled, a significant number of models/textures will show up invisible/glitched/disappearing. In my experience this also happens in Unity-based games Subnautica and Shadowverse. In those games, disabling GLSL fixes the issue and models/textures render completely okay. However for VRchat, disabling GLSL won't work as it results in a black/purple screen on startup. (Is it possible for the screen to return to normal if one were to make it past the login screen? Unknown, couldn't click for blind.) SO, you may have better luck with graphics if you're using Nouveau/Radeon/Gallium9.
Finally, setting any of "-force-opengl" "-force-d3d9" "-force-glcore" in extra launch options don't work as VRchat will fail to launch.
CPU: Intel Core2 Quad Q9550 12M L2 (ANCIENT!)
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 Founder's Edition 8GB
RAM: 8 GB
HDD: SSD Crucial MX300 256GB
Mobo: Asus ROG something with 3x PCI x16 (something of a strange board for the socket)
OS: Ubuntu 16.04 x64
GPU Drivers nvidia-384 from Ubuntu repos ("Ubuntu Core Developers")
(nvidia-387 was available but would constantly crash certain js-enabled webpages in Firefox-ESR, so untested)
** nvidia-prime, bbswitch-dkms were removed as part of previous attempts to fix missing textures and are really only necessary for laptops with nvidia gpus or desktops with integrated intel gpus and discrete nvidia...?
