Hello you guys
I've bought a new computer a few months ago and since then, X2 doesn't work anymore. I get the following message in the terminal:
Code: Select all
ALSA lib pcm.c:2099:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 154 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 23
Current serial number in output stream: 24
Some people had this issue on Arch Linux, because the driver wasn't installed correctly. But my driver ("nvidia-361" version 361.42 for my GTX960) is installed and working, other games work perfectly.

Assuming you do mean the Linux port of X2 and not by using Wine. I got the Linux version to work on Ubuntu in early 2014.
Can't say I can remember what issues I faced.
Though I doubt your problem is due to your graphics card driver, rather audio. As 'ALSA lib' is audio related.
If I ever plan to log into Ubuntu again, I'll give it another go.
But since X2 for Linux is not on Steam, then it was a third party release, so support from Egosoft is doubtful.

i have the same problem and searched for a solution.
If you didn't know, you can start the game with different parameters from shell.
Code: Select all
$ ./x2 --help
Linux version by Linux Game Publishing
Usage: x2 [options]
[-h | --help] Display this help message
[-v | --version] Display the game version
[-w | --windowed] Run the game windowed
[-f | --fullscreen] Run the game fullscreen
[-s | --nosound] Do not access the sound card
[-n | --nomovies] Do not play intro or cinematic movies
[-d | --nodialog] Do not run the startup dialog
[-g | --withgl] [x] Use [x] instead of /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 for OpenGL
And the launcher didnt work, so i tried to start the game directly with the following command, which works for me:
And you can still edit the configuration file manually for resolution, etc.
You find the config file in your home folder:
And if you search for patches, you are lucky. The german linux community has a backup:
