Hello ! So this post may have no signification for most users here, but it aims players who play on Linux OSes (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint...). It concerns people who have low-end or old PC. This can concern you if you have errors starting the game, like video errors or related with OpenGL. In fact, OpenGL will be found on old PC at its version 2.0 or 2.1, while most of the games will need OpenGL 3.0 >, and Warspear Online on Linux will need it. This is impossible to use OpenGL 3.0> on those old PCs, but you can emulate it, doing so the game (here, Warspear Online) will start and work great ! How ? Install the .deb version of Warspear Online, from the official forum page. Once done (or maybe you already have it installed), navigate to /opt/warspear from the root folder. You will see normally two files : warspear.pak and warspear-online (executable file). Open a terminal in this folder, and do "LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 ./warspear-online" in the terminal. The game will start with an emulated version of OpenGL 3.1, and therefore you won't get anymore problems related with openGL (in theory). However, this has a price : because openGL 3.1 is emulated, your experience in-game may suffer, fps will sadly drop a bit the game is still playable though, and I'm f*cking happy because I searched for hours the anwser to this problem. To avoid doing the same command everytime, just do a simple dekstop link or launcher link with the specificated command, and put it on your desktop (or where ever you want). Hope it could help people, I think the "LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1" command applies for any program working with OpenGL. Best regards :) (Is it possible to pin this topic ? Thanks)
