[Linux] Weird red graphics

Postby spxip » Mon Jun 20, 2016 4:53 am

I have really weird red graphics when I start Shadwen. This happens in game menu and during the game. I have not tested to play out the game more than starting a new game, so I don't know if the game is going to crash in a long run. When I start the game from console (./start.sh) and after I accept the launcher settings, the game only gives these lines:

Code: Select all

Running Shadwen
nohup: redirecting stderr to stdout

Other errors I get from dmesg:

Code: Select all

Here is an example picture from my game menu:

I tried different graphic settings from game launcher and I also tried changing settings from ~/.local/share/frozenbyte/Shadwen/options.txt but nothing helped.

I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with the game, but here is something that might help:

We have heard about a similar issue with Trine, which apparently was fixed by turning Anisotropic Filtering off from the NVIDIA Control Panel. You can find this option from the "Manage 3D settings" option.

I hope this helped, but if it didn't please let me know and we'll look into this.
