Need help setting up some Frozenbyte games
dvd commented on 7 December 2017 at 8:23 am UTC

I'm using Debian Buster, and after getting Shadwen yesterday i tried to get it and Trine 3 to work again. I've got to a point where i compiled all the missing legacy libraries (libpng12) and had ldd recognize all of the required shared libraries. I also provided the necessary override values for GL and GLSL versions in the launch options, however, both games seem to CTD in the same way. I'm using the MESA drivers with the necessary blobs installed. Has anyone here had success with these games using Mesa drivers?

Thanks for the suggestions!

Hello,

When you say crash to desktop what do you mean exactly - Do the games display anything when you run them or nothing at all? Also have you tried the other Trine games, Enchanted Edition and Trine 2?

On my laptop with Mesa I can run the first 2 Trine games but not the 3rd. Trine 3 often had issues with Mesa, including on a high end card as the RX480, a google search will result similar answers.

Tomorrow I will run some more tests on my laptop and will report back.

I meant that after the configuration window both games tried to open a window which then quickly closed.

I can run T1 and T2 fine, i did have some graphical glitches around cogwheels in T1.

I also ran Shadwen demo on this hardware in the past, as well as other opengl4+ games by setting the mesa override values.

I tested Trine 3 today on Mesa 17.2, end result is a black screen and a non responding status. I searched a few youtube videos with Trine 3 + Mesa and they clearly show it working. Needs some little investigation.
