Adjust custom settings:
- Select a resolution that matches your Linux Desktop
- Check Fullscreen
- Adjust FOV (Field of view)
- Use presets for Overall quality
- Light Shafts
- Depth of Field
- Shadow Quality
- Material Quality
- World Detail Level
- Detail Draw Distance
Rule of Thumb:
High settings = More detail, lower frame rates
Low settings = Less detail, higher frame rates
Betrayer ran fairly well in PlayOnLinux on my GeForce 550 Ti
There were a few graphical artifacts while playing... Flickering textures in the distance, missing assets in dark mode and glowing white spots. Disabling GLSL seemed to fix the glowing spots, but I was unable to resolve the other two graphical problems.
Betrayer ran with smooth frame rates as long as I didn't have everything set to high. I had to disable Depth of Field and lower some of the quality. Then gameplay and frame rates were really smooth.
