Did you perform any driver updates recently?
No, it's a fresh install with current updates applied and the open source AMD GPU drivers.

bizarre. works offline but not online.

checked Options.xml in /Broforce/game/saves and the screen resolution is set to:

<resolutionW>0</resolutionW>
<resolutionH>0</resolutionH>

Changing 0 to my screen resolution, in this case:

<resolutionW>2560</resolutionW>
<resolutionH>1440</resolutionH>

Now the game works fine. No idea why it works offline but not online and how this is related to screen resolution being set.

I tried your fix but all it did was make it run windowed with the exact same problem:
Slowdown at the end of the second logo, then a black screen.
(Linux Mint 18.1)

Terminal output:

After removing the controller, I got this:

Hello micronaut,

I faced the same problem than you.
I solved it by editing the file
Broforce/game/DebugConfig.txt
and changing the line :
ForceSteamLayer False
to
ForceSteamLayer True

However, I don't know if you need Steam installed or not...
I hope it will help you.
