Segmentation Fault under Linux
« on: January 28, 2017, 10:46:03 AM »
I recently bought A Golden Wake under Linux via Steam and today I finally got around to start playing but to my disappointment the game crashes when you click new game. I am running Arch Linux on a i7-6700 with 32 GB RAM and a 1080 GTX Nvidia card with the latest driver from Nvidia. I can that there are other people under Linux that have that issue. Is there a fix or workaround? Here is the output from the terminal if I run it from there.

[af@andre ~]$ cd "/home/af/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/A Golden Wake/"
[af@andre A Golden Wake]$ ./GoldenWake.bin.x86_64                                       AGS: Adventure Game Studio v3.3 Interpreter

I'v got the GOG version (with the same engine) and i dont have this crash on openSUSE...  :-\

Try running the game with the command:
linux32 ./GoldenWake.bin.x86_64

Similarly, I have the GoG version on Ubuntu 16.04 and the game doesn't crash on me.

You may want to run the game under a debugger, though I'm not sure that will help a lot. Try `gdb ./GoldenWake.bin.x86_64`, then `run`, then `bt` to get a stack trace once the game has crashed.
