Counter-Strike 1.6 Will Not Launch Pop! OS 21.04
Has anyone had any luck getting this game to run recently? I know this isnt a support forum. Just curious if anyone has had any luck.

Moved to the native game forum, since it's a native game.

Also, for proper help people need more info like the output when run through terminal.

I occasionally fire up counter strike condition zero, and have experienced times when it refuses to start.

I have no idea why, but if you start it with proton and then return to native in the compatibility settings it runs fine again.

Might be worth a try.
When i run steam through terminal then attempt to run the game nothing pops up in terminal. Doesnt even crash on launch. Just straight up doesnt launch. I tested the switch proton on and off and it doesnt work.

This one? https://store.steampowered.com/app/10/CounterStrike/ If so, it works for me.

Just to be clear, running the game with Proton is also a no go? No messages in the terminal?
It works fine under Proton. It just refuses to launch the native version of linux. And when launching through terminal it acts like it was never attempted. Nothing pops up at all in the terminal.

That's odd. Steam is usually very verbose.

Another alternative is to launch the native version using the "Steam Linux Runtime". You enable it from the same place as Proton.
