Hello you guys Smile

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:
alex@alex-PC:/media/alex/stuff/X2$ ./X2
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.

Hello,

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:

$ ./x2 --help
Linux version by Linux Game Publishing
http://www.linuxgamepublishing.com/
Support: http://support.linuxgamepublishing.com
         e-mail: support@linuxgamepublishing.com
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:

Code:

./x2 --nodialog

And you can still edit the configuration file manually for resolution, etc.
You find the config file in your home folder:
Code:

~/.lgp/x2/config.ini


And if you search for patches, you are lucky. The german linux community has a backup:
