I can't start the current beta on Linux. The loading screen shows up and animates, but below is a crash report window (see attached screenshot).

Sure. I'm using Gentoo (well, Funtoo, but it's basically the same) on kernel 4.14.8-gentoo-r1 with Xorg 1.19.3 and Nvidia's 387.34 drivers (GTX 1050 TI). My DE is XFCE 4.12 (compositor is off). The only thing that's a bit unusual is that I don't use Pulseaudio.

Thanks. My next question was going to be about whether you used PulseAudio - we suspected that you didn't. We're investigating whether PA is now required, and how we can offer a workaround :)

If you're willing to test a workaround, here's what I can suggest.
Go to ~/.config/Epic/HeliumRain/Config/LinuxNoEditor/Engine.ini, and add the following section.
Not sure this can work, but it's my best guess for now.

Thanks. That's the extent of what I can try tonight. In the meantime, f you feel comfortable installing PulseAudio temporarily, feel free to try that. We'll also update the beta branch very soon (today or tomorrow) with an updated release, which could also be of interest to you - though no specific audio patches are supposed to be included.
