Known issues

  • Chang’s head is too dark on linux
  • No longer used cobblestoneramp rotations may result in a faulty mesh

Known OS / crash issues

  • OSX: Default build crashes, use the latest_experimental_u52 (stable_u52 when non-experimental released) build from Steam.
  • OSX with Intel GPU and most likely some Linux systems with Intel GPU: black terrain
  • OSX: Might be seeing some kind of “checkerboard” graphics. Try latest_experimental_u52 (stable_u52 when non-experimental released) build from Steam.
  • Linux with AMD GPU and proprietary driver: Might still crash on launch. If so for some people running the game with “-force-gfx-direct” fixes this (add the parameter to the launch options in Steam). Alternatively if performance is good enough the open source driver should fix this too.
  • Linux: Crashes due to not being able to use PulseAudio. Might be fixed with this build.
  • Windows with NVIDIA GPU: driver versions 34x.xx are causing crashes when entering games. If there are no newer drivers for your card try using latest_experimental_u52 (stable_u52 when non-experimental released) build from Steam.

If any of the above issues does no longer apply for you (e.g. able to run on Linux with AMD GPU, proprietary driver and no launch-argument) please report in this thread:
