Hello LoA Fans! Here's some info on the newest patch for you! Take a looksee,

* Fixed an issue where certain combinations of buffs would scale each other

Known Issue: Linux


You need to put "libsteam_api.so" into your lib folder (/usr/lib), this will fix any issues you may have had with LoA on Steam (Achivements, Inviting, etc.).


You will find libsteam_api.so in your Legend Of Aethereus folder ( run “sudo cp /home/[username]/.local/share/Steam/Steamapps/common/LegendOfAethereus/ libsteam_api.so /usr/lib” )

Have fun and remember to give us all your feedback!

First, the standalone Linux download for this version doesn't have any buttons in the main menu for me - it worked before.

The Steam version works fine, but only has the 32-bit binary which crashes a lot, especially with the binary AMD drivers! Could you please add the 64-bit binaries to Steam for Linux?

Also, please test with AMD graphics under Linux >:(

Finally...

No! Never, even as a workaround, tell people to manually put stuff into /usr/lib - folder is managed by the package manager and should be touched by the package manager only. Stuff from outside the package manager generally goes into /usr/local. But even that is a bad choice as installing a library in a system-wide location (where it can potentially affect all programs) for just one game is insane. Instead, create a wrapper script that adds the game directory to LD_LIBRARY_PATH like any other game on Steam that needs additional libraries (or use LD_PRELOAD or specify a full path when loading the library or...). A wrapper script would even allow you to automatically select the 32-bit or 64-bit game executable depending on the system's architecture.

I must say, as a Kickstarter backer I'm disappointed, that the game was 'released' in this state. Hopefully it will be patched to actual release quality as, from what I've been able to play, it looks really promising.
