    Thank you, I've forwarded this to QA.

    I think I have the same issue. New to Castle Story so I am not sure if this problem is new, I have not been able to start the game.

    I know you don't support this but I am using Arch Linux. I start the game and the launcher pops up. I press start the game and i get a black screen I can see the cursor only.

    I have tried window mode, turned off my monitors, run Steam in native mode, and a bunch of launch options that some of my other unity games us.

    I have 2 computer one running nvidea and another intel GPU. Both run Arch and both have the same problem when launching the game.

    Hope you can help since this game looks fun.

    Same problem here on Arch with current version 0.9.1a. Attached strace too as there seems to be some kind of deadlock. Hope it helps
  • ShatojonShatojon Administrator Developer Backer Wiki Editor
    Hey guys, unfortunately we don't support Arch Linux. :( There's not much I can do to help.

    Same Problem here, also Archlinux.
    The bad news is, as arch is unsupported, its up to us to fix this. The good news is, if there are only arch users suffering from this bug, there ought to be a way to fix it on our side (hopefully).

    I'm not too sure about your deadlock diagnosis. On my machine I see one thread at 100% CPU, but doing no syscalls according to strace, especially no futex_wait. Unfortunately, that also means I have no idea what its doing...

    i've the same problems, also on arch - any idea how to debug this?
  • ShatojonShatojon Administrator Developer Backer Wiki Editor
    Hey guys! While we don't support Arch Linux and I myself am not particularly knowledgeable when it comes to it, if I can forward any questions you have to our devs that might help you figure out a way to get Castle Story running on Arch, let me know, I'll be happy to do what I can. :)

    I got the game started using the 32bit version. Castle Story seems not to be the only Unity Game with that bug (https://steamcommunity.com/app/305620/discussions/7/1353742967802459397/)
    If you want to use the launcher to start the game you have to install some multilib packages. I had to install: lib32-nss lib32-gconf lib32-gtk2. If you bypass the launcher and run 'Castle Story' binary you can skip installing these packages.
    Unfortunately I still cannot play the game as I only got one-digit FPS ):
    Hope it works for you
  • #koko7, kann you explain it a little bit? i'm playing via steam, where can i find the 32bit version? or how can i download it?
  • koko7koko7 Member
    I tried but in steam I couldn't find it either. Maybe #Shatojon knows how to get the 32bit version in steam? ;)
  • ShatojonShatojon Administrator Developer Backer Wiki Editor
    Hey guys,

    Steam automatically chooses for you - I don't know if there's a way to fool it into downloading the 32bit version. On Humble Bundle, you can choose though, if I'm not mistaken. If you own the game on Humble, try that. If you don't #koko7, send me a message on Steam and I'll give you a copy of the game on Humble so you can continue experimenting. :)

    Is there an option to download an old version of castle story (0.8.x)? i would like to test if the old version works anymore. If it work's, we can minimize the chance that the problem is an arch package update :no_mouth:
  • ShatojonShatojon Administrator Developer Backer Wiki Editor
    Hey Hobbypunk,

    Unfortunately it isn't, unless you have a version laying around from Humble Bundle.
  • damn it :angry:
  • Hello,
    same here. Arch Linux. Humble Bundle.
    Only 32 bit version works. The terminal output is more or less the same like the one of salorium for 32 and 64 bit:
    "Unable to preload the following plugins:
    RakNet.so
    Player data archive not found at `/home/salorium/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Castle Story/Castle Story_Data/data.unity3d`, using local filesystem[1] 21645 killed ./Castle\ Story"
    This doesn't seem to be the problem.
  • ShatojonShatojon Administrator Developer Backer Wiki Editor
    Thank you for sharing, casteldefender123.
  • any news?
  • ShatojonShatojon Administrator Developer Backer Wiki Editor
    If you still thinkg getting an older version of the game on a special Steam branch would be a big help to you guys, I can hold someone hostage at the studio to make it happen.
  • I found some interesting details in gdb.

    That signal should not happen. And it continues to be interesting:

    Continuing.

    The signals continue to alternate.
