Need help running Cogmind
Acrophobic 22 Sep

Hi everyone. I've just bought Cogmind from Steam. Unfortunately, whenever I run it from Steam it always failed to launch. However, when I run it directly using wine Cogmind.exe it works properly (Alt-Tab not work though).

Here is my PC data :

  • OS Manjaro Linux with kernel 5.8.6

  • Wine version 5.16 staging

  • Proton 4.2.9

I've put the log from Steam in Pastebin.

Any idea how to fix it? Thanks!

I found how to fix it. In case anyone face the same issue, this issue is happened because somehow Steam run Cogmind using native libraries instead of Steam runtime libs. To fix this, I force Steam to use runtime libs by using following command :

STEAM_RUNTIME=1 %command%

Now everything works without problem.
