I open a new topic so the Feedback's one is not cut with Linux talk. If there is moderation tools on Itchio it would be nice i think to move the Linux part away.


Anyway, i've deleted the unity3D HOF Studio folder and reDL DOE, then launched it from a terminal. Crash as usual, and there is nothing in the terminal, only one line with one word : "abandon".

Here is the Player.log : https://pastebin.com/raw/WzVjH...

Thanks! I was actually thinking about this yesterday also and was wishing itch had a tool to make a post in a forum into a topic. This will work too and I'll make sure we have captured the data you sent to us and then will delete that thread in the feedback channel.

We really appreciate all your help and will take a look at your player.log and see if that leads us anywhere.

Any new news ?

If by any chance it's not running on Linux, would you grant a refund ? I have no idea how it's working on itchio.

I'm used to Alpha and i can wait, i'm just wondering. 

Also i cannot be the only one running Linux here, who wants to share their experiences and see if "we" can fix it together ?

Sorry about the silence. We've not had a chance to get the new build for the Alpha out yet due to some conventions where we exhibited, the July 4th holiday and some other unforeseen issues. This build has a lot of new content in it and significantly changes the beginning of the game so we want to test it thoroughly.

A few changes aimed at the Linux issues you reported are in the build and we are hoping to get it up over the weekend or by Monday. We've had a few Linux testers here locally and haven't been able to reproduce the errors you describe but based on where you had the crash we think it's because the textures on the opening were not sized in "power of 2" and your graphics card might have had an issue with that for some reason. Issues with specific hardware are going to be tough for us to troubleshoot as we are just a small team with limited resources.

If it doesn't work on this build and you want the refund, we can definitely do that for you.

Great to know you are at it.

I don't want a refund, i want to play, hehe. I only asked to know what would be the options, "if".

My hardware is  common (GTX 960), and i use proprietary up to date stable nvidia drivers, so it's kind of weird.

I forgot about your holidays period, and you should enjoy them, not answering my rants. 

Developer

No worries! We are back at work as of yesterday doing the final details.

Possibly our testers have the uncommon hardware and it works there for some reason. Anyway, we will see if the texture resize solves it. 

Developer

just pushed out build 30 so curious if you get the same crash.

Hi,

v30.2, same behavior.

Is there a way i could skip the introduction, for testing ? One line to edit somewhere ?


I've tried again many different ways to run the game, shortcut, command, terminal, with some command line tricks, from 32 and 64bit, from handmade script, fullscreen or not, different options etc.

Always exactly the same. I see the first intro screen and the text, if i click or wait, i see the second intro screen and hear the music, and then when i expect the text to appear, immediate crash.


Here is a zip with all files from my Unity HOF folder after a reinstall, launch and crash : https://www.petit-fichier.fr/2...

In the DOE_Settings.dat file, change 

"TutorialCompleted":false

to

"TutorialCompleted":true

And you should be able to skip the intro.

Ah great, by editing the file i did skip the intro and tutorial, and it works. I did play my first mission.

So it seems the issue is very related to that first part of the game.

I'll take 1 minute to get ride of my emotive state now.

We're going to look into the problem further though :)
