Solved: 3 Years, 3 Months, 2 Weeks ago Exclamation  Game Crashes at Loading Screen

I had bought Amnesia in the past, and I thought I'd try installing/playing the game on my Linux PC.

After starting the game I went through the the initial screens of text, and gamma setup. However, when the game gets to the loading screen with the sun emblem, the game crashes.

I don't have a clue as to what the problem might be, but I'll try to give some basic information that could lead to a solution.

I'm using a Radeon 6790 GPU.

Here is the contents of the "hpl.log" file, just in case...

Anyone know of a possible solution?

Thanks! Smile
Solved by switching to ATI's proprietary drivers. Sort of figured that would end up being the solution at first, but didn't want to go through the trouble of installing them. However, after re-reading the "Known Issues" thread, I figured that switching to proprietary would be the only solution.

Oh well, after a small bit of configuration, the proprietary drivers seem to be running the game correctly. Problem solved. Smile

Thank you, AndrewS.

This has worked for me too. I'm using Linux Mint 13 Maya and I've installed the drives through the Additional Drivers tool. After reboot, I had no problems with XORG and Amnesia played very well.

I own a 6850 card.


Take care!

Evening!

I've found this thread using the search feature. Since Im used to boards that alert about posting on old threads, I didnt realize this was old. Eventhough, the solution still worked for me 11 months and 22 days after it was post - meaning it is not that useless after all. But sorry, nevertheless (I know bumping old threads annoys).


Take care.
