Before I do the bug-report bit, is alt-tab screwing up NPC models a known-thing?

I have to disable my secondary display to get the game to start, otherwise I get this:

Completely random guess: it may have something to do with how my screens are set up. My secondary display is connected via DVI (it's an older 1080p monitor) while my primary is connected via DP (newer 1440p). However there's a long-standing issue with nvidia cards where they prioritize DVI as the main display and there is no way to effectively change it - at least last time I checked. This means BIOS, boot screens, etc. all assume the DVI monitor is the primary. This may lead to conflicts in display selection/resolution?

Here's my gog support script output:

Once I disable the second monitor it starts up fine. There's a small amount of hitching even at >90fps, but I get that in other Vulkan games (Dota 2, Artifact) as well, so I think that's a driver issue.

Before I do the bug-report bit, is alt-tab screwing up NPC models a known-thing?
It has been reported in this very thread.

I have to disable my secondary display to get the game to start, otherwise I get this:

Code: Select all

./testandlaunch: line 14:  6268 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) ./X4 "$@" 2>&1
Once I disable the second monitor it starts up fine.
I'm happy to report that updating from kernel 5.0 to 5.1 appears to have fixed this issue for me. :)

The game still doesn't work when launching through Steam. Propably some binary-incompatibility with the Steam Runtime as the binary runs perfectly fine when just run by command-line. However, as only the beta-binary has no DRM, I am unable to access the stable build as launching that from the command line will just launch the game again through Steam which fails.

Output in Steam's dev console is the following

Code: Select all

I don't see anything glaringly wrong in the console output you posted: The ld.so error, command not found on glxrecord, and pid mismatch are all items of interest but could each be independent of the others, and none of them seem like big deals. The rest of the output seems to indicate successful launch of the game, followed by the game closing, but without timestamps it's not clear how long it was open.

What behavior do you see just from a user perspective? Does the game open? By this I mean does it create a window and/or take over your full screen, even momentarily? Are you able to reach the main menu? What does it look like, if it isn't looking correct?

PSA: To use mods for X4 on linux, all the mod files must have lower-case names.

Post by strask412 » Sun, 23. Jun 19, 04:49

Hi all, I didn't see this posted anyplace and had to learn by posting a query in the Scripts & Mods forum, so just in case future linux players look here first I wanted to mention:

To use mods for X4 under linux (as of version 2.50 hotfix 1), you must ensure that all the mod file names are lower-case. Even though that makes them different from the stock files. Also any files inside the mod which point to other files inside the mod, must have those pointers "corrected" to match the new lower-case names of the target files.

Edit: N. b. "all the mod file names" INCLUDES the directory/folder names, as well.

Hi ... having the same issue ... first time install works great under linux / but when
re-launching the app seeing the same issue with can't find .etc\xml\catalog ...

A quick work-around that works for me ...

# first take a guess at what the code is trying to do ...
cd
ls -al .etc/xml/catalog/

# yup the folder is there ... x4 is using windows path separators on linux
# ...

# a quick work around ...
ln -s .etc/xml/catalog/ .etc\xml\catalog

# Yipee my very favorite game is launching from Steam!!!

# did I mention I LOVE THIS GAME!!! Freaking Awesome

I don't see anything glaringly wrong either which is why I am not more specific as I really have no clue why the game fails to launch ;)

From the user's perspective I see the X4: Foundations entry turning green in Steam as well as having the "Running" appended to it for a split-second (indicating game running) and then it returning back to normal. No game window, nothing.

The ld.so error can safely be ignored. X4 is an amd64 binary and therefore cannot load the gameoverlayrenderer library for IA-32 due to architechture mismatch resulting in this error.

No clue why the game looks for glxrecord. If it's a requirement for the Steam version and the game is attempting to do something with it, it should be removed

Not my experience as at least for me patching MD files works flawlessly when naming my diff files exactly like the source files (keeping capitalisation) as one would expect it

Try clicking the Play a few more times. Been a long time since I looked at console output, I think I even posted it in this thread somewhere. For me, the game routinely refuses to launch from Steam, often up to 10 times in a row.

viewtopic.php?f=181&t=417564 is the thread where I initially described my problem, received the instructions to lower-case all the names, did so, and succeeded in playing with mods which had failed to load minutes prior with no other changes. If you have information about how to get it to work without the workaround I described, that thread would be the best place for discussion (we can post back here with results once we resolve why we see different behaviour). Thanks for letting me know I might be spreading fud.
