Great! No reason for me to buy Windows 8.1(expect FIFA15, Battlefield3&4, Total War series and so on). And I suppose Bannerlord will be three platform too(Win, Mac, Linux). Great!  :D

Warband, the only game you'll need. Until Bannerlord comes along...(I hope).

Great! I now just need wine to play c-rpg.  Hopefully, mod support will be here in the future.

Props Taleworld, you are great!

Just checked it out. Single player feels ok. On the other hand, multi feel sluggish atm, i have better game experience when playing it out in wine atm. Maybe it's because i can't access config file directly and turn some bloat. Will check it on better machine anyway (now i have nv9500gt + [email protected] - pretty crap stuff, but used to be enough to play all games i play - warband and hearthstone)

As I have asked in private messages, could there be any standalone package, or does it exclusively rely on Steam? Is there any probability of that in the future, at least for a dedicated server executable? I am content to keep using Wine on Linux, as always, but I would test and give bug reports if there is any interest.

I also vouch for this question. Not to say that i'm not using steam version, i'm happy to provide bug reports either way.

Taleworlds, I love you just for trying.  You've done more than most game developers do, and for that you have my thanks.

Issues I've noticed:
  • No launcher.  Nevermind.  I swear the configure tool wasn't there just a minute ago.  Did it just update while I was mid post, or am I just blind?
  • Launcher cannot select mods.  WORKAROUND***: insert the module folder name into ~/.mbwarband/last_module_warband [Linux]
  • No way to change resolution in-game.
  • No icon when alt-tabbing or on the window.
  • No way to show framerate.
  • Unable to rotate the character during the face editing part of creation by right-clicking and moving the mouse.  Also unable to rotate the camera with right-clicking and dragging when in the overworld.
  • Characters are NOT successfully exported, contrary to what the game says.  No character.txt file gets created.

***  When using my workaround to load third party mods, I had some issues.  Some custom textures simply do not appear.  In my case, I'm using Floris Expanded.  The ground textures are not loading, as well as some outfits not appearing right, and characters' naked bodies.  I have a strong suspicion it's related to Floris relying on shaders which aren't implemented in this beta.  I found using the change item menu that even in Native, there is at least one instance of a texture not appearing in this same manner: The lute item.
Screenshot
I'm thinking the reason we can't select our own modules is because of issues like this one.  And yet, it's the only issue I ran into, which leads me to believe this is a fairly complete beta.

From what I have seen, CONGRATULATIONS!  For a first public beta of a Linux port, this is simply outstanding.  Yeah, there's some very annoying bugs, but nothing gamebreaking like falling through the floor in certain levels.  This is truly a good Linux port which just needs a bit more work before perfection.

Final Questions:
Is there any chance of With Fire and Sword or Carribean also being ported, or is that up to their respective developers?
Also, does this in any way mean that Bannerlord will be on Mac and Linux?
Secret Doors be warned!  I am a DoorMarshal!  I will find you, and I will break you!  You hear me?!  I will break you!

Hi, thank for native linux port.
I found 2 problem:
Something make translations not working correctly, I added italian translation and changed the value of ~/.mbwarband/language.txt but major part of game is still english, continues to show in English many strings that I see translated files in modules/native/languages/it
Some times on the exit of the game, when I click exit on menu the game remain blocked and I have to do alt-tab and kill the game process.

Thanks for any reply and sorry for my bad english.

Not sure if this is the proper place to post bugs, but I was competing in the tournament at Shariz and got knocked off my horse, flying hundreds of feet, through several walls, to the outskirts of the city, and was unable to get back in to the tournament (or at least I couldn't figure out how to.)

Fantastic! I've already put a good handful of hours into the Mac version and it's shaping up nicely. (Although there's lots of bugs, to be sure).

Some of the things I've noticed:
-Character body invisible/disappearing during character creation (I'm just a floating head)
-75% of the time, riders who get their horses killed go absolutely FLYING (well, sliding) to the edges of the map. Sometimes through walls during tournaments
-Really weird lighting glitches, like massive checkerboards, lines, or other weird shapes of light and shade that sometimes appear and fill up the landscape
-A couple times during night battles, a gigantic red silhouette of me on horseback appears in the sky, mimicking my motions

If helpful, I've got some video screen captures of most of the above issues, though I'm sure they're fairly common right now.

Good job TaleWorlds staff! This made my favorite game become even beter.
