It's great to see such a beautiful, well crafted game day one on Linux. Unfortunately, I've encountered a game breaking bug: As soon as I start the game I can see a mouse cursor and a black screen – that's it. After some time wave sounds appear, but it doesn't go any further.

Please, devs – help!

Elementary OS Loki (based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS), 32GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 1080 with proprietary 384.90 driver. I tried both 1080p and 4K resolution to no avail.

Hello,

I've got the same problem, it seems as if important game files are missing in the installer:


./start.sh
Running AER - Memories of old
Set current directory to /data/spiele/AER Memories of old/game
Found path: /data/spiele/AER Memories of old/game/AER.x86_64
Mono path[0] = '/data/spiele/AER Memories of old/game/AER_Data/Managed'
Mono path[1] = '/data/spiele/AER Memories of old/game/AER_Data/Mono'
Mono config path = '/data/spiele/AER Memories of old/game/AER_Data/Mono/etc'
Preloaded 'ScreenSelector.so'
Player data archive not found at `/data/spiele/AER Memories of old/game/AER_Data/data.unity3d`, using local filesystem

Same issue here; same messages.

Is the game expecting the menu entry/desktop icon to set up environments/paths? 'Cause I told the install not to install either of those. I'm running start.sh directly from the console.

Acutually, I think it is really just a missing file in the installer, I searched for it (data.unit3d) and it is nowhere to be found. So I guess this is a packaging error that can be easily sort out by gog.

Hello everyone,

Thanks for reporting the problem! We will let the developer know about the issue.

It looks like the game struggles to find the correct resolution and as a result of that, it tries to create a fullscreen window of with 0x0 dimensions. It's a bug of a Unity screen selector plugin.

As a workaround, you need to open the game configuration file (created after running the game at least once):

$HOME/.config/unity3d/Daedalic Entertainment GmbH/AER_ Memories of Old/prefs

And change lines:

<pref name="Screenmanager Is Fullscreen mode" type="int">1</pref>
<pref name="Screenmanager Resolution Height" type="int">0</pref>
<pref name="Screenmanager Resolution Width" type="int">0</pref>

to:

<pref name="Screenmanager Is Fullscreen mode" type="int">0</pref>
<pref name="Screenmanager Resolution Height" type="int">720</pref>
<pref name="Screenmanager Resolution Width" type="int">1280</pref>

Let me know if that helped!

Not at all! Many Unity engine games display such message in their logs and function 100% properly. It's just a weird quirk of Unity ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Best regards,

In my case, the prefs for fullscreen and resolution are, sometimes, reverted to 1, 0, 0, bringing back the initial issue.

I solved it by adding a line that search and change back those values to start.sh into the run_game() function:

[...]
# Actions
run_game() {
echo "Fix prefrences"
sed -i.bak 's/Fullscreen mode" type="int">1/Fullscreen mode" type="int">0/; s/Resolution Height" type="int">0/Resolution Height" type="int">1440/; s/Resolution Width" type="int">0/Resolution Width" type="int">2560/' ~/.config/unity3d/Daedalic\ Entertainment\ GmbH/AER_\ Memories\ of\ Old/prefs
echo "Running ${GAME_NAME}"
[...]

Change 1440 and 2560 to your preferred resolution.

Hi, in case anyone else looks at this, the script works well, but there is a typo in the destination folder (at least on my installation). ~/.config/unity3d/Daedalic\ Entertainment\ GmbH/AER_\ Memories\ of\ Old/prefs should be ~/.config/unity3d/Daedalic\ Entertainment\ GmbH/AERMemoriesofOld/prefs instead.
I had the same problem, this solution works for me. But the file is rewritten when the game is launched. So, before leaving the game I switch to window mode, and I switch to full screen in game at restart.
But that's how it works and it's better than no game.
