0.7.0 crashes before it launches on Oracle VM 6.1 / Debian Buster

Post by fangor »

So I installed the deb package for Buster, and that went fine. I had to download the data assets manually and copied them to /usr/local/share/vegastrike. I ran vegasettings using this directory. I then cd into this directory and ran vegastrike, but it will not launch and I get the following:

Code: Select all

fangor@debian:~$ cd /usr/local/share/vegastrike

I just tried running it on Ubuntu Focal (also Oracle VM) and got almost the same error message - Value in failed request is 0x533 here, and serial numbers are 176 and 178.

So is this a VM issue?

Hey. Sorry for the delayed response.

Are you trying to run Vega Strike in full-screen mode? Maybe try running it in windowed mode, and see if that works better. (Change this setting via vegasettings.)
