HI!

 

I have problems running the game from Steam client on Linux.

 

I can't seem to be able to start the game. I just get a black screen, which closes and the applications quits after a couple of minutes.

 

Tried switching screen resolution as well as clearing all settings. No changes.

 

It does however run, if I run the executable directly from the game directory. It does not play any of the intro FMV though.

 

Is there a way to fix this?

 

Thanks!

Hey leshy,

 

I'm sorry Deadfire has been causing you issues on start up.  If you could reproduce the issue and send us any logs that appear as a result would be amazing.  If needed, you can find instructions on how to obtain these files here.  If you could send the files to support@obsidian.net along with a link to this thread as a reference, that would be amazing.

 

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience this is causing.

I haven't been able to reproduce the issue anymore. The game just started to run normally after a day or two.

If this happens again I will send the mail with appropriate info.

 

Thank you very much for the help!
