Failed to start game (missing executable) with Ubuntu

Post by acamole » Thu Dec 26, 2013 7:43 pm

I encounter this message "Failed to start game (missing executable)" when I try to play the game with my Ubuntu.

Has anyone else received one? Where should I search to find the cause?

I have verified game cache, deleted appcache folder and rebooted. But it's still occurring.

Very odd. Try deleting and redownloading the app. I am taking a look at it on an ubuntu/mint machine right now. Will get back to you.

Thanks for looking into it, any update?

Are you running i686 or x86_64? I'm having the same issue, and I believe it's because I'm using i686. The system requirements clearly say 64 bit OS, but I didn't read them until just now. Woops :D
