[Linux] Air Conflicts does not launch
I'm running Mint 14 64bit, the game does not launch at all. I can view the config window but once I click play nothing happens apart from my screen changing resolution (if i've cnaged the settings in config).
anyone solved this yet?

Same issue here, ubuntu 13.04 64bit on Intel HD4000 graphics chip. set to full screen and windowed, no luck.
Same problem, also HD4000 on newest ubuntu. Tried running it from console, doesn't show any output at all, just quits.

Same here. HD4000 and Fedora 19. There seems to be a pattern here. If there are any devs listening, do we have some provision to enable debug flag etc. to know where the issue is.

you guys tried using an actual dedicated video card like a Geforce or Radeon Card?

Intel HD4000 or any intergrated intel GPU will always sucks for gaming.

Yes, I;m using a GeForce

Same problem here. Can't find the error log. Linus Mint 14 32bits . Any idea where I could find those logs ?

Same problem :
It doesn't start on my brand new Thinkpad T530 laptop : Fedora 19 64bits, Intel HD4000, 8G RAM

EDIT : I can launch the game my desktop (Fedora 19 64bits, GeForce GT 530 with nVidia drivers, 8G RAM). But it's a windowed mode with ugly graphics and without any sound :(

I decided to try running ACPC again with a bit more of a debug effort.
For a normal steam setup, the binaries for the game are located at:
/home/{user}/.local/steam/Steam/steamApps/common/Air Conflicts - Pacific Carriers/ACPC/bin/
I ran ./ACPC from there in my terminal but it fails to run anything. The reason for this is that the binary does not know where to look for a steamappid, to authenticate the game.

I realised this when i saw error files appearing in the bin/ folder
acpc-err.log and acpc-out.log appear when you run the binary. The program has the annoying habbit of truncating/deleting these log files when run from steam.

anyway, uppon discovering their existance. I tail -f 'd them and watched their output, i received this output in the acpc-err.log from running ./ACPC from the bin directory in the terminal directly:

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; no appID found.
Either launch the game from Steam, or put the file steam_appid.txt containing the correct appID in your game folder.

From this point I figured then i could only test the app by running from my steam library screen.
When i ran from their, i received the below output in the sfml-log.txt

Using altered version of SFML2 (core profile enforced)
Attempting to create GL context...
Error creating OpenGL 3.x context! Falling back to OpenGL 2.x ...

From this, the sfml library linked by the game or in ubuntu's setup is missing or an incorrect versoin. I'm not sure which package name to look for in dpkg of apt-cache search to see if it's the ubuntu setup.

I wonder if anyone out there has knowledge of these error log's meanings?

cheers folks.

Same problem here, with both a 64bit 13.04 and a 32bit 13.10 (Desktop/laptop).
Same problem here. Ubuntu 13.10x64, kernel 3.12, AMD-HD5770 Open source driver.

Same problem, Linux Mint 15 x64 (Ubuntu 13.04), kernel 3.8, nvidia GTX460

I can launch the game but i don't have sounds, i can't config controller (xbox360 pad) and i can't configure the game (fullscreen, graphics ...)
