  • At first it installed nothing, but the day after it installed around 416megabytes.
  • Now when I try to launch the game nothing happens, so I go to the terminal and try to run it and I'm getting this:

$ ./AnomalyWarzoneEarth
dlopen failed trying to load:
/home/daniel/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steamclient.sowith error:

[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; unable to locate a running instance of Steam, or a local steamclient.dll.

All the other games I'm playing have no problems to launch and run and yes I tried deleting the game, restarting steam, reinstalling the game, etc.

The files mentioned are there and Steam is up to date, I include them listed here and their paths and info in case what I have has any problems (although like I say this is the only game I have trouble launching):

~$ ls -l /home/daniel/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steamclient.so

-rwxrwxr-x 1 daniel daniel 189903 feb 8 18:20 /home/daniel/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/libtier0_s.so


I also opened steam from terminal and when I click play it spits this:

It works for me as of 1 minute ago.

The way you launched from the command line won't work. Try this way:

Open a terminal window and go to the game's install directory, then:

echo -n 91200 > steam_appid.txt
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32 ./AnomalyWarzoneEarth

Please post back here on the results.

I launched it with strace to see what it was doing, trying to see if there was something missing.

The program seems to look for stuff I don't have but I am not sure if that's a problem of not, since most I see are pulseaudio stuff, and I don't use pulseaudio.

To not fill this thread with garbage I pasted in pastebin, hope that gives you a tip of what may be going on:

Hi,

same problem for me. I am not at home to give you more informations, but this is my experience :
Computer : Asus N55SF with Nvidia optimus (http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/N55SF).

I use Bumblebee to manage the optimus technologie.

If I run steam and Anomaly Warzone normaly (on the intel HDxxxx video card), I can't launch the game.
But with Bumblebee ($ optirun steam), I can launch and play perfectly.

and apparently it is trying to run the following instruction:

So i guess 0xa39e4c0 is an invalid address

dafema, it works for me on Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit, using latest nVidia drivers. The next step is for someone here to try to reproduce your system, to see if we can get this problem to reproduce.

What drivers are you running - open source or proprietary?

What distro and what architecture (32 or 64 bit) are you using?

On my system, libGL.so.1 gets loaded from /usr/lib/nvidia-experimental-310/libGL.so.1. On your system, it gets loaded from /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.

We have near identical nVidia drivers installed. On my system, ldconfig -p | grep libGL.so.1 outputs this:

libGL.so.1 (libc6) => /usr/lib/nvidia-experimental-310/libGL.so.1

What does it output on your machine? Can you ls -l /usr/libGL.so.1 to see what it is linked to?

Thansk for replying.

I have a 310.32 binary install from NVIDIA:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-ia32-310.32-driver.html

Allow me to remind you that I have no problems with any other steam games I have tried in Linux, this is the only one.

here is the results you ask me for:

Command:
ldconfig -p | grep libGL.so.1
libGL.so.1 (libc6) => /usr/lib/libGL.so.1

And command:
$ ls -l /usr/lib/libGL.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 feb 27 21:08 /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 -> libGL.so.310.32

And even:
$ ls -l /usr/lib/libGL.so*

Interesting that yours is different like that (but valid). Could you please run from the command line:

Then put this file into pastebin?

Thank you. Your pastebin shows that the game is finding all the libraries it needs, but then the game itself decides to exit for an unknown reason. At this point, the game developer needs to get involved to see why the game is deciding to exit. Could contact them and send them the url to this thread?

Same problem here. Linking succeeds but it just stops. I started the game manually with strace and I see nothing special except:
rt_sigaction(SIGILL, {0xf3fb5cc3, [ILL], SA_RESTART}, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0
WP says: "The SIGILL signal is sent to a process when it attempts to execute a malformed, unknown, or privileged instruction." It appears at the end but I don't know if this is fatal for the process in any case.

I think it is trying to read from an invalid memory location, as you can see in my backtrace + register values that I posted earlier (I always get this same backtrace). However without source code I can't give any more detailed information. But I guess the developers have debug info for that build they uploaded to steam, so they can map the addresses to source lines and hopefully fix the issue.

Well anything new?
Usually I'm quite patient but I'm waiting for several weeks now. Is there a way to get a refund from Valve if a game doesn't even start?

I contacted them like scottlu suggested. This is what they replied (March 7th):

"... We are aware of the problem with Anoamly Warzone Earth on linux, our team is trying to fix this but our programmers have a hard time diagnosing the issue. Eventually the fix will come, but unfotunately as of right now we can't give you an ETA."

So, I'm applying patience hoping it will be fixed.

Sounds to me like: we'll try if we have some spare time again.
They could for example start with talking to the people that report errors to get a trail or enable some debug output. I wouldn't mind if it takes some time as long as they show real interest. Imho, people here a really helpful and could provide usable feedback.

I also used to have this issue, I tried playing it again today and it worked for me (openSuSE KDE 64bit with AMD Graphics). There must have been some update to either anomaly or the steam runtime that fixed it for me (I am running steam beta)

I reinstalled it again.

This time Ubuntu 13.04 64 bits and kernel 3.4.43., nvidia 319.17.

The same exact issue still persists. Steam beta even.

This game is affected by an engine bug, the linked workaround needs to be tried in addition to troubleshooting this issue.

I know that I could play the game just fine 1 or 2 years ago using the above mentioned link with the compiled test.so.
However something changed some months ago and the game is broken now again needing libtier_s.so

I copied libvstdlib_srv.so and libtier0_srv.so twice from Black Mesa to the Anomaly Game folder and renamed one to libtier0_s.so and libvstdlib_srv.so to libvstdlib_s.so.

In the end I got 3 new files:
libvstdlib_s.so
libtier0_s.so
libtier0_srv.so

And finally the game started again.

Seems like this clearly a Steam bug and Valve needs to fix.
