Well? Game starts here with open-source drivers on Intel IvyBridge, but after trying to start a new game I got always a crash with "intel_do_flush_locked failed: Input/output error". Thought you should notice that Mesa 17.0.5 and the game seem not compatible at all. Could you please have a look on that?
EDIT: Also the Windows-version is not working with Wine. Seems complete unplayable with free software / drivers and only really working with proprietary drivers!
At the time of release we confirmed that Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy runs with Mesa drivers on Intel and AMD video cards that we use on regular basis for QA. Feel free to contact our support team for further help: https://support.gog.com
Did that and got the feedback that there is no further support for a libre derivate of Arch Linux. Using Hyberbola
with 3.3 (Core Profile) Mesa 17.0.5
. The game starts, main menu is looking good, but after starting a "new game" the screen stays black and the game itself crashes after some seconds. Got only the feedback to install the 32bit-libraries, but that's already done because other games work and it looks irritating because even games like Dark Souls
and Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
work under Wine. The last one even with all settings on maximum!
Even testing under Trisquel
does not work at all on comparable system with same components: The game itself crashes on systems with Intel Ivybridge
(known as Intel HD 4000) and even though newer graphic cards also need proprietary signed blobs to work (as known for AMD and NVidia already).
Seriously: What systems did you use for testing? With Intel Haswell, Broadwell or even newer?
