Getting black screen on startup - Ubuntu 18.04.3 with Nvidia propritary drivers.

Any fix?

Via proton? Native version does not work for a few years now due to the glibc thingie.

In topic Is this unplayable?
Do you have other devices plugged in that act like a mouse or joystick? Some drawing tablets or 3D mice, for example. They might be causing this drift.

Latest rollback patch fixed that. The game is working again. Although I was initially disappointed I have to say that Deep Silver was VERY fast with the fix. Kudos to them for that.

I'm on Xubuntu 20.04 with 440.64 nvidia drivers installed. With Proton 4.11 I don't have performance issues except minor sound distortion.
Ah. So 4.11 works? The main difference from 4.x to 5.x proton is that 4.x poses as Windows 7 whilst 5.x poses as Windows 10. Since the game is old and will not receive any updates, I don't think posing as Windows 7 will have any problem, so a solution to stick with 4.11-13 is good enough, or if you insist on 5.x, change to it then use "protontricks 236730 winecfg" to change to Windows 7 from Windows 10 in the "Applications" tab, like that:

I tried it, but I got 1 FPS. Game is unplayable. Probably I have to try another Proton version.

In topic ETS 3 gonna happen someday?
Maybe ETS3 -- if it happens -- will be a different game where you can actually leave your truck, walk around and interact with people, like Star Citizen but with trucks and cities instead of spaceships and stations.

In topic Soundtrack DLC - and music update!
I tried to click on the store page but all I got was the page of the original game, Void Destroyer 2. Where is the specific DLC page?

Meanwhile, I have to say, after Half-Life: Alyx I am craving for VR. Any plans for a VR version of Void Destroyer 2?

In topic Valve Index Support?
Originally posted by Julius:
WMR is somewhat understandable since it works somewhat differently, but it's pretty incredible that the Index doesn't work when it's just as official and part of the same ecology as the Vive is.

Good to know that the game will never support beyond gen 1 headsets.
I just said the game worked with the Valve Index on Linux. Do you want me to film that?

In topic Valve Index Support?
I run it on Linux (under Valve's Proton) with the Valve Index and SteamVR running and it works well and with great performance. So maybe proton allows me to do what in Windows is not possible?

I'm pretty sure Egosoft doesn't read these forums guys. Our comments are wasted. Always have been. They suckered us twice in a row: Rebirth and Foundations. Just accept it and wait for Star Citizen. Egosoft should have been sued out of business years ago. A simple class action lawsuit would do the trick. Even if it didn't result in a conviction of fraud, the legal costs alone would put them down for the count and keep garbage like this from happening so much in the industry.
I have both, X4 and Star Citizen, with more than 500h in X4 and about 100h in Star Citizen. They're completely different games. Star Citizen is much more like Elite: Dangerous than X4 and you don't command fleets or build stations. They're so different as to be in different space-based genres. So even if X4 were as crappy as you said it is (and it is NOT, it is an incredible and unique game), you suggestion would be like replacing Starcraft II with Borderlands. In reality one usually revolves around the genre one prefers, these games scratch different itches.

In topic why tf does it say vr supported?
Me too.
I know ProtonDB and I regularly contribute to it and always check it before buying a game, however it's not the most adequate from the VR thing because there are many generic evaluations of games that support VR when people don't say whether they tested it, also many games that do not have VR in the linux native version, so it gets quite difficult to find useful information.
Wow, so nice to know this topic exists. Is there a database of the working games or just the comments? I got a Valve Index last week and have been testing lots of games. The ones I wished more I could run were Alien: Isolation with MotherVR and Euro Truck Simulator 2 VR mode. Both crash but they seem close to working. Anyone has made tests on these two?

Using Ubuntu 20.04 with RTX 2070 SUPER, Ryzen 7 2700 and 32 GiB RAM.

Also, do you guys have games to recommend? No one tested the free Allspace which works perfectly with VR, although not with the Index controllers?

It might not work though as Monstrum was only tested on the Oculus Rift and hasn't been updated since.
Thank you very much, this was very useful. I searched the forums and at that time I did not see that thread about revive. Browsing the internet, I saw something for linux which is very much like revive and I might find the way to do it and if I do, I'll post here.

In topic VR on Linux?
So what do I need to run this game in VR on Linux? I have a Valve Index and other VR games like Half-Life: Alyx work perfectly. Tried to run Monstrum with SteamVR and it just ran normally on my monitor instead of the VR glasses.

In topic X4 as recompensation for X Rebirth
That's stupid. They are different games and there was absolutely no dishonesty from Egosoft when advertising X: Rebirth. I play both and I love them in different ways.
