Right now there is a free weekend trial of the game GC3 going on, so if I could please get help before that ends, that would be great.
I run Mint 18.3 I have a Geforce 750. I use Nvidia 384 driver. I tried using a latter driver and my OS wouldn't load. I don't know of Mint is compatible with latter drivers, I do remember Wine complaining a few times about my older driver. Mint help says that such a driver is fine, and have even suggested using 340. Noveau doesn't work for me at all. I had to go through great pains with alot of help to get Noveau blacklisted because it was causing system freeze ups and other issues and driver manager was not able to make Linux use the Nvidia driver.
First, when I try to try to launch the game with no changes I get "failed to initialize display" and the game doesn't load.
So I found something that said to put
in launch option, which causes the game to load and sort of play, but there are a number of issues.
All planets generated including home planet whether tutorial or quick start or whatever generate as "Type 0 dead planets devoid of life.". Players tell me this should not be so.
I can't build anything on planet aside from space dock which technically isn't built on the planet, because it says there is no space. I'm not sure if that's normal for barren planets or not. I'll edit in whether that is normal once I get the answer.
When I go to view the planet screen, I get bleed through from the previous screen.
This is what it is suppose to look like. https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ ... FDFED2405/
This is what it looks like for me. https://postimg.cc/yJ9dM7fb
Ships are suppose to be able to travel the complete distance of the green path. But in my games the ship moves a bit but can then can move no more despite the game showing more green path.
Is what I was told. Is there some issue getting Wine to work with multi threading?The game is HEAVILY multi-threaded and the path stuff is absolutely threaded every which way. Maybe the port to linux is not threading the way the game expects.
There are probably other issues, too just not familiar with how the game is suppose to go so it is hard for me to spot them. I think there is suppose to be a larger galaxy screen like this https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... 1838219764 that I am not sure if it's because the games not functioning right or because I just don't know how.
