Slow startup on linux

Post by badger05 » Fri Feb 26, 2016 12:59 am

When starting the game in Linux (using the GOG version of the game) the loading is extremely slow and when the game loads the menus are also slow which make the game unplayable. I have tried windowed and fullscreen at different resolutions but it doesn't change anything. I could not find any reports of this problem so I hope someone can give me a hint how I can run the game, because it does seem fun. I have attached the abbeycore.txt and settings.ini files.

Hey badger,

The slowness you describe, is it 'just' low FPS? Your computer is on the low end of our supported hardware range (which admittedly is quite demanding, especially memory wise), so a non-optimal frame rate is expected, but it should be playable. Is there a difference when you try to run the game on Windows (if you have that option)?
