Dear players of The Long Dark on NVIDIA on Linux:
Unfortunately, the latest version of Unity (used in the Redux version of The Long Dark) introduces graphical corruption issues when played using NVIDIA video cards. Fortunately, there is a workaround that may address these issues for you by forcing the game into OpenGL 4.2.
To do this:
- Right click on The Long Dark in your Steam Library
- Select Properties
- Select Set Launch Options
- Paste the following in the resulting text box: -force-glcore42 -force-clamped
We’ll continue working with Unity to resolve the issue with a proper fix, but until then this work-around should allow you to play the game.
