I exited the game part-way through the setup part of the tutorial, and now when I restart the game and try to play the tutorial, it exits. I can go into the tutorial setup, but when I click on the button to start the battle, it quits without a message.
I tried deleting the game files and re-extracting the zipped files, but I still have the same problem. Is there some place where the game is storing some config files I could delete?
thanks for the quick response. I was able to delete all of the game files and start from scratch. Unfortunately, I’m still getting the same behaviour. When I try to move on past the deployment screen, the game exits without a message. I checked for an error log in the /.positech/GSB/ folder, but didn’t see anything. As much as I’d love to get it working on linux, I think I’m going to try firing it up in windows…
As for the version, I bought the game through the Humble bundle, so I’ve got 1:56:0. Is there a newer version than this?
There have actually been 2 hotfixes during the course of the bundle the latest refreshed on the 23rd. So re-open that humble bundle email and goto your download page and fetch the latest installer. Yeah it still labels itself 1:56:0, but it now will create a build.log file in ~/.positech/GSB and should it crash it will create a crash.log in the same folder (and inform you of that fact)
When it crashes, can you have it not do a pop-up? There is a problem that when the game is in full screen mode the pop-up will come up behind the game and you can’t see or click on the pop-up… and the game itself won’t exit out until you click on the pop-up (which tells you a crash log has been generated), which you can’t do because it’s behind the game so you have to do a Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to restart X. I think I fixed all my crash problems by deleting a couple files in the game’s libs directory as I haven’t had pop-up problems in a while now. Also, the shader pop-ups don’t happen any more and the game seems to run great now (even in fullscreen!), which makes me very happy!!
Off topic, I’m very surprised at how fast this game runs on my 6-year old hardware… very very surprised… The game is very nicely optimized for performance.
Also looking forward to buying DLC that runs under Linux without having to jump through hoops…
