Dying Light OpenGl
DreamArch commented on 29 March 2018 at 7:51 am UTC

So I had the OpenGL 3.0 Mesa error on Dying Light, and I got rid of the error message with some launch options. Then the screen was black on launch, although the audio was fine. Now I see that mesa was updated, and try to install it, but...

%command% is part of the launch command....

Dying Light is not a good title to run a sanity check on your opengl install.
Which distro are you using? What is the output of glxinfo? How about 'inxi -bM' ?

Any problems with any other games?

sr_ls_boy commented on 30 March 2018 at 8:17 pm UTC

xorgproto is a part of the dependencies for the X server which was completely
revamped. It breaks compatibility with older version of the X server. You may
need to downgrade.

Lolo, Yes I have tried that. Error was gone, but the game launched, the bar at the bottom loaded, then the screen was black. I could even hear the intro, just couldn't see it.

Your version of Mesa is too old. You need at least 7.2 to run DL.

You need to download a file and put it in the Dying light folder.
