Initial Test of Linux Mint 18.2 running the ETS2 MP mod.

Recommended Posts

It's not built for Linux based operating systems, hence why it's unstable.

While it's pretty fancy, I don't recommend doing this as it might cause unpleasant experiences for others.

It's very stable, but I do keep getting the odd crash, which I'll be reporting to m4wl as I'm certain the crash is been caused by the MP mod itself.

 

When all the issues are ironed out, it'll be very stable, I believe.

 

Edit:

 

I turned off the CB from within the truck cabin, game did not crash. I watched chaos at a service station for 16 mins. Was, quite fun.

I may put up a step by step guide in the near future. Speaking with m4wl to sort out a glitch that is causing game crashes. 

 

I just did some runs on ATS, ran for over 2 hours without a hitch. It's looking good!

Proprietary. Currently using the Nvidia 387 drivers.

Alright, because I remember my performance was absolutely horrid with the AMD open-source drivers (even though they are better than the proprietary ones)

 

Linux is not quite yet a gaming-ready OS and it suffers from significantly lower FPS compared to Windows (depends on your distribution and how you tweak it too) but it's Linux and it's better in every other way but gaming. Let's hope it changes in the future.

 

Also, good luck trying to run ETS2 well with your Linux!
