BrisseJust received an update on Ubuntu 17.10 which claims to fix this issue.

yes seems to work - just deleted the symbolic links in Total War Warhammer and it starts!!!

AnjuneI found a workaround that works here:

Basically, cd to the game's lib directory and run ln -s x86_64 . -- worked with Life is Strange and Shadow of Mordor, haven't tried any others yet.

Edit: Tried on Ubuntu 17.10

Thanks! Worked for all my currently installed Feral games, including Dirt Rally which I recently bought and haven't played yet so that makes me really excited

Oh, and the last line should be
$ ln -s x86_64/* .
Didn't work without the asterix for me.

"hmm worked in Hitman but not in Total War Warhammer...."

now fixed, only use one fix I tried the LD path and the ln -s x86_64 at the same time and that did not work at all

anybody had success on that with Ubuntu 17.10?


Ryan "Icculus" Gordon is looking for new games to port to Linux, pay not required

themixturemediaI would really love to see him help the guys at Harebrained Schemes to bring the port of Battletech to Linux sooner. I tried to play it with Wine and the graphics are really bad right now. I think he would do a great job helping with the port.

maybe drifting off topic but what settings did you use to get it running on wine ?

Sparhawkworks fine for me. AI turns could be quicker. That's about it.
This is the exact issue! Has anyone compared AI turns on Windows and Linux? This where I would hope to get a real improvement - it does seem to think and think....

Graphics are nice but its turned based civ and really should look like this: [img=320x240][/img]

And in other news....: Civ was supposed to be an RTS!
