no audio + hang in Shank

Recommended Posts

Kicer    0


I'm running Shank 1 on Linux. It used to work perfectly but now I have no sound.
Console says:

ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1029:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave

Event if I forget about the sound, I cannot play: after choosing one/two players mode I can only see black screen with weapons chooser at top of it and nothing more. I can quit the game but no way to start it.

Any known issues? workarounds?

If you had done a recent install or upgrade for your Linux Distro, please ensure that you have all the necessary packages for PulseAudio on your System. You will have to find the 32 or 64-bit packages depending on what you are using.

As for the other issue, verify your game cache (or uninstall/re-install the game) to see if that helps. As well, check to see if your graphics card's drivers have been updated to their latest version.
