Everything is green (Linux).
Hey. There is some green layer over everything. Sometimes it goes away. When I press escape, the colors are fine, but when I get back in the game it turns green after a 0,5 seconds delay.

I don't know graphics and stuff, but this might be a layer that takes time to apply when getting back in the game (blur or something?) Hopefully you guys can fix it or give me a console command to prevent that layer from appearing?

All I know is I won't be able to play the game until this is fixed.

If it matters, all other Linux games work just fine on my system.

I'll take a screenie.

I have the exact same situation. Also the only linux game that does this.

Also running Ubuntu 13.04, but 64bit.

Hi All, Same problem for me under a Debian distro with Ati 6800 series video card.
I tryed with many resolutions, details and quality settings with no enanchment
I think it could be a graphic card driver issue, because this problem came when I upgraded from 12.10 to 13.4.
With catalyst 12.10 I finished the game more than once without any problem.

Just an update - I did upgrade my ATI Drivers to the latest and still having the same issue. I did get it to work when I restored my original graphic drivers (none accelerated - I think) that came with Ubuntu 13.04.

I have also this problem with Radeon HD6850 and Ubuntu 13.04 combination.
blade22x Jul 12, 2013 @ 10:47am 
Me to with Radeon 7850 on Ubuntu 12.04 64bit.
Don Luigi Jul 12, 2013 @ 2:06pm 
I am also having this issue. The game works well with catalyst driver below version 13.4, but it doesn't work with 13.4 and 13.6 beta. I also found people complaining about this bug in the doublefine forum:

I would be glad if someone find a solution.
Player Jul 16, 2013 @ 9:01pm 
Hmm no. I'm using 12.10, the version of debian testing.
halo.jones Jul 17, 2013 @ 12:29pm 
Same here. Ati HD5760 latest Catalyst driver.
kaffeefant Jul 23, 2013 @ 4:40am

AMD has released a new OpenGL beta-drivers. This fixes colours, atleast for me.

I can confirm it. It also fixes the colours for me :)
ReAzem Jul 27, 2013 @ 11:47pm 
Fixed for me too, thanks!

I still had this problem with the OpenGL 4.3 beta driver,
but the new Catalyst 13.8 beta driver solved the problem.

Using HD7750 with Ubuntu 13.4 64bit
