Hello guys, first post here (Made a account to post this thread) I'm having a major issue with my Game Dev Tycoon, Everytime I try to start my copy of Game Dev Tycoon (No Steam) it only shows a white screen, i play alot on my computer which has Windows 8.1 but it seems to break on my Ubuntu. I use Ubuntu 10.40, using POL 4.2.2 and have Game Dev Tycoon 1.4.5. Really want this fixed as I LOVE this game. I didn't find any threads about this happening without a Steam problem so I'm hoping you guys here can help!


P.S. Im very new to Ubuntu and any other Linux versions.

Welcome to Linux gamging!

First try installing the newest PlayOnLinux:  4.2.8

Just download, double-click and it should open the software installer and ask for a password.

What video card/chip is your computer using?
Do you have the proprietary video drivers installed?
IF your Ubuntu is 64-bit, did you install the multi-arch (32-bit libraries)?
