Linux Crashes
I thought I might as well post this incase it helps someone who was having the same problems I was having. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 with an AMD/ATI 5750 graphics card.

ns2 on start was just going to a black screen and mouse pointer before crashing back to the desktop. I managed to fix this by reverting my AMD / ATI graphics drivers package from fglrx-experimental-13, version 2:13:101-ubuntu-0.0.2 to fglrx-updates, version 2:12.104-0ubuntu0.0.1.

There are still some graphics issues and performance problems, but at least I have been able to play through the tutorial.

I really want to buy this game, but when I tryed it on a free weekend it didn't even start on my computer with an intel GPU, and it was REALLY laggy (like 2 fps) on my AMD gpu computer. Is this a problem with my system (Arch Linux x64) or anyone else is having this crash?

intel GPUs dont even come near being able to run this game lol!
Nibodhika 9. okt 2013 kl. 11:21am 
I tried with the intel because it just keeps surprising me, I wasn't surprised when it didn't start, but since I can run Crusader Kings II perfectly in it, and the GPU requirements are about the same, I figure it wouldn't hurt to try.

But the AMD computer has the recommended settings and still runs at 2fps. So I want to know if anyone managed to run this on an AMD, and if so which one.

GPU requirements obv are way too high on CK2. intel GPUs are crap no matter what. What do you mean AMD computer? what is your CPU and GPU

Intel I5, Radeon HD 6550M with 1GB dedicated memory, 4GB RAM. Also my system is minimalistic, consuming 100MB of RAM, so that should be enough RAM to run the game with textures on medium. Not top of the line, but should run this game.
ChrisPlaysLinux 10. okt 2013 kl. 2:21am 
i am sorry but that is not enough to run this game especially because its a laptop it runs hot and throttles down the speed to compensate.
Nibodhika 10. okt 2013 kl. 3:57am 
=/ that's a shame, I only have those two laptops, I guess I'll have to wait for the SteamMachines to play this game

I cant even play the game under Linux. I can see the main menu and the super-low-detail version of the lobby then I crash back to desktop. Tried it with 310 and 313 drivers and the same thing.

did you run steam in a console?

I'm running Linux Mint 15 and I've had no issues playing the native versions of Dota 2, Euro Truck Simulator 2 and Left 4 Dead 2 through Steam.

With Natural Selection 2 it's different, In the tutorial the game crashes each time I try to fire at the alien bot. I have the 319 drivers from the official NVIDIA website. Verifying the game cache on Steam doesn't solve anything.

These are the last lines of the console output I get when running Steam in a terminal:
WARNING: Corrected case of '/home/[myusername]/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/NatSegmentation fault
Game removed: AppID 4920 "Natural Selection 2", ProcID 2974


I just bought the game yesterday and now I want a refund.

I have the same problem except that the game
not even want to start but a short error
is displayed and the window closes immediately.
What should you do?

For me the problem "Crash when shooting" did resolve today. The things I did:
- Start NS2, and put every Graphics options to very low or "off"
- close it
- cd ~/.config
- rm Natural\ Selection\ 2 -r
- restart and enjoy
