Flight issue - Linux

Good evening everyone,

I'm running the game on Linux and everything is doing fine (the intro, the main menu, the utterly fantastic music, etc.) until about 5 seconds into the actual flying part.
It's smooth flying for a short amount of time, then the framerate deteriorates rapidly and the game locks up. I retried several times with different settings but it keeps happening.
Has anyone else been having this issue? I'm not a programmer so I can't really give technical details, but do let me know if there is anything that I CAN do to help.

I just found out about this game's existence about an hour ago and I must say I'm quite impressed with how it looks!
That 5 seconds of flight time was the best gaming experience I've had on Linux, lol.

Hello, thanks for registering and taking time to submit the bug report!

That's very weird, we have a bunch of other Linux users who do not share that same problem. I really don't know what I can suggest. What distro are you running?

I'm running Linux Mint 17. I think it's derived from Ubuntu.

Okay, Unity3D says it only supports Ubuntu so I can't really help much sad

Oh well. I'll keep tweaking things. Hopefully I'll come up with something.
Thanks though! And keep up the good work guys!

Re: Flight issue - Linux

I found the problem. Apparently, there is an issue between Unity3D and the drivers for the Radeon 4350.

At least it's not incompatible with my OS! smile

Yay, that's good news. Well, kinda! smile I really hope that driver support is improved for gaming on Linux in regards to Unity 3D, we had other Linux users with similar issues.
