Solved: 4 Years ago Steam/Linux Amnesia DD startup crash

Hello!
I'm official Steam Linux beta-tester. I got Amnesia DD in my Steam library.

The last generated output to console:
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::length_error'
  what():  basic_string::resize
This is a message generated before crash Amnesia DD...
I
played ADD much time before non-steam version without problems on
64-bit Linux, although there was crashes, but not at start of the game.

When running from Steam/Linux - crash happening every time after brief intro from developers and gamma selection slider and then crash.

How to contact with developers? This is not solved for a long time...

Check the cache integrity of the game in Steam to make sure it is intact and not corrupt.

Cache integrity OK. It's not the reason of this problem. Since program crashed at string, I tried several game languages - same crash.

P.S.
I played this game about one year ago in Linux 64-bit version - there were crashes in just one place, I was able to finish this game with comfort and happiness =)

As a programmer, I could perform extended testing if developers are interested. Please, contact me via PM or here. I'm not the only who encounter with this problem, but I could reproduce problem over and over again and ready to help Smile

Currently, problem has gone.
When running Steam with export LANG=C (to be able to run some games) - Amnesia crashing...

I suppose problem was in locale settings...
