Tried to run SteamWorld Dig2 from GoG. It just died with this:
ERROR: ShowErrorMessage: Failed to initialized OpenGL extensions (GLEW), error: Unknown error
This is from my understanding a fixed bug in GLEW on Wayland but requires an update of that lib – which is probably not gonna happen any more.
Fun enough we can work around this by starting it with
SDL_VIDEODRIVER=X11 ./Dig2 under Wayland, with from my understanding invokes|provokes XWayland and brings us back to Wayland. And since I want to play this on my couch with my Steam Link I added the game to my library and set it’s start parameters to
SDL_VIDEODRIVER=X11 %command% – Et voila…

@bekopharm It’s a really fun game though 🙂 I played through it earlier this year and had a blast 🙁
I’ll never understand why the text is cut off sometimes and sometimes not. I was pretty sure it’s within the limits ._.
@sotolf Just finished Dig 1 last week 🙂 Kids love it.
@bekopharm Dig 1 is also great yeah, it’s just very short, and a bit limited 🙂 2 is just more of the great things that 1 had 🙂
@sotolf @bekopharm interesting to hear, I felt a little let down with dig 1… Just because of the length, and didn’t buy dig 2 because of that. Maybe I’ll give it another look
@paul dig 2 is not long, it’s like 20 hours or something, but it’s a really fun little metroidvania experience, compared to 1 I’d say it’s about 4-5 times longer than it if memory serves me right 🙂 It also has more abilities, more differentiated biomes, more fun platforming challenges and some extra things like baubles to collect, It’s very much worth a buy, I got it in a sale for around 5€ and it was more than worth that price at least 😀@bekopharm
@sotolf @bekopharm good stuff, 4-5 times longer is good enough!I’ve got to go an play some castlevania at some point… I come from the “metroid” side of things really.
@paul @bekopharm Yeah, I’m slowly plucking away at hollow knight and cathedral, they are both fun, but get difficult quite quickly, and I’m not very good at playing games :p The thing that made the older castlevanias fun were that usually when I was too bad to do something I could grind to get over it :p
@sotolf @paul I’m playing this mostly with my kids watching (or trying themselves) and Dig is perfect for this :)Not easy to find games that still amuse me and are okay for children.
@bekopharm Steamworld Dig 2 came to #stadia Pro in 2020 and I was so hooked. I played through it in a few days and was totally sad when I was done with it. So take your time. 😜 I’m glad you found a solution to the problem. I am still using x11 on my #archlinux. My nvidia card is bugging out under wayland.
@cyriana well damn it, too late I guess :DI did find only 85% of the secrets tho Endscreen (with spoiler):
