Anyone play CSGO at 1440p resolution?
poincare commented on 19 March 2019 at 2:26 pm UTC

Hello all! I love CSGO's Danger Zone mode, but I recently bought a 1440p monitor and have been experiencing reproducible crashes in the mode when playing at the highest resolution. Whenever I play at 2560x1440 resolution, the game crashes at a predictable point. Whenever I play at 1080 resolution, it never crashes.

I've detailed my problem on the CSGO github, as well as in a possibly related bug report.

Just wondering if anyone would be willing to help me test this out. Here are my steps to reproduce:

  • Set CSGO resolution to 2560x1440

  • Start Danger Zone mode

  • After the warmup, select a location to deploy. Deploy and land.

  • Open the tablet and keep it open. At the moment that your first exploration bonus money would be earned, the game crashes and coredumps.

I think it has something to do with the text that gets displayed on the tablet when exploration bonuses are earned (the tablet displays the text "Exploration Bonus: $100" in green). My game crashes right before that text would be displayed. The game doesn't crash if the tablet is not open when the exploration bonus is earned.

Any testing and/or "works for me" reports would be very appreciated. I feel like I'm close to figuring out what my problem is. Thank you!!

My specs: Arch Linux, Intel i5, Nvidia RTX 2070, 1440p monitor at 144hz.

I do, yes (144Hz FreeSync too!). Does it happen no matter the deploy location? I luckily haven't experienced any crashes after the most recent Linux patches.

I will attempt to reproduce this when I get home tonight.

Thanks, drlamb! Yes, it happens no matter where I deploy. And the crash never happens during the warmup phase, only after deploying.

I run at 2560x1440 and had no problems last time I played it. I'll run a quick round now and see if I can reproduce.

EDIT: Nope, works fine.

Thanks for testing, WorMzy! Can you tell me what fonts you have installed on your system? I found mine with fc-list. Since the crash seems to be triggered by text appearing on the tablet, I'm wondering if I'm missing a font or something.

WorMzy commented on 19 March 2019 at 8:27 pm UTC

That's some 2000 lines.

They're all /usr/share/fonts though, so, to make things easier, here's what packages own files in that directory on my system:

$ pacman -Qqo /usr/share/fonts            

steam-fonts may be of particular relevance, although I can't remember what I installed that for. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

THANK YOU WorMzy!! I was finally able to figure it out. I had a couple of font packages installed that I guess were causing some problem. I removed a couple but I suspect it was ttf-ms-win10 from the AUR. I removed a few packages and now it works fine!

Good to hear you figured it out! I was just about to report I encountered no issues attempting to reproduce this.

Oh, Thanks to reporting this question. I am also going to buy a new monitor to play some heavy games including CSGO, I was worried if this problem is also going to be on my new setup.
