    Hello,

    When I try to launch it the window with game gets initialised but that's about it. Nothing is inside this window, it's totally locked up. The game stays in this state for about 3-4 minutes. After that time it turns off.

    I'm looking for logs as I write this post and I'm going to attach them here when I'll find and go through them.

    Code:

    In the spoiler there are logs. I don't really see anything suspicious in them. There are no crash logs. This is the only file that got created after launch. Additionally, the base PA game launches without problems.

    My PC specifications:
    • OS - Linux Mint 18 Sarah x64 (Ubuntu 16.04 x64 as base) [I'm pretty sure this bug affects other people using Ubuntu 16. There are few topics around Steam forums.]
    • GeForce GTX 970M with latest drivers installed (367.35)
    • 16GB RAM
    If you need any additional info, just ask.

    Cheers,
    Furai

    It's the outdated Steam libraries again. Try this: https://wiki.palobby.com/wiki/Crashing_in_Ubuntu_16.04_when_using_Steam

    Thanks, that did the trick. I'll let people on Steam forums know about the fix.

    It doesn't work for me, it keeps on the black screen.

    Anyhow PAT works when I launch it directly (not via steam, but by finding its executable).


    Nothing meaningful in the logs
