Tested on 16.04 on nVidia binary driver. Seems to work fine here. What an intense game!

✓ 3D Acceleration
✓ Audio
✘ Joystick if you have one

Only thing that I tested which didn’t work was the joysick. Did you specify the joystick plug? Looks like you need to specify it and have users manually connect it to test?

Tested on 17.10 on nVidia Binary Driver. Working great, couldn’t test the joystick as i don’t have it, But couldn’t alt-tab the game in fullscreen maybe its the game fault or gnome!

oops, yes, I forgot to add the plug :slight_smile:

Tested on 17.10 with Intel graphics, Wayland session. Works perfectly!
