Join us on our own very special Reddit: /r/Linuxers
I've heard reports far and wide that the Linux to Linux multiplayer in Dying Light is broken. Myself and Samsai tried to connect to each other many times and it failed every time, lets get it fixed.

It's important due to it being a big game to have on Linux (and it makes Linux look better if games actually work properly), and there's a big update and expansion due out tomorrow.

I've asked them about it a number of times to no reply, until now. They just today replied to my latest support ticket about it, and they said they know nothing about this website or the bug (big sigh).

To quote my support ticket:
QuoteCould you explain your issue in more detail, please? Also, we do not know anything about the website you have mentioned.
Lastly, to help us diagnose your Linux issue, we would like you to send us the following files:

1) a list of all your environment variables (you can generate it by using the printenv command),

2) Dying Light's so-called crash.log files, which are created when launching the game. To find your Log files, go to your game's directory and then to .../DW/out/logs/ crash_??????_?????????.log

3) a report from a program called HardInfo.
You can download HardInfo by using the following line from the console: sudo apt-get install hardinfo

If you could all attach all the info into the comments (use dropbox or something for the crash logs), that would be fantastic. Article taken from

Odd they say they don't know anything about it. I have a huge thread with their support team about these issues... Have them reference ticket #10335 titled MULTIPLAYER CONNECTIVITY. They keep going back to telling me about the patch with no additional information. Also everything they asked you for ( Env variables, crash.log, hardinfo data, etc ) is attached to that ticket number and has been for 3 months now....

I really hope they do fix it as I don't play single player games and I really would like to play it with my gaming group.

Hopefully this bug will be fixed in the enhanced edition. Will test it and report back.

We're playing Dying Light with two other Friends (all have Linux Mint 17.3) and we had no problem at all.

I just get constant crashes on Linux Mint 17.3 64bit. No idea why.

Getting messed up fonts on the second computer with Dying Light. Tried file verification and it didn't work. Going to try reinstalling.

The game used to crash constantly for me. Every time I died it would crash to desktop, but most of the time it was just random. I started a new file recently and I have had no crashes at all. However, I have not done a lot of multiplayer testing yet.
