Hi, I am the happy owner of all the Penumbra titles on Linux via Steam. All titles seems to work great execpt for the Overture one which crash after the first intro.

Here is the dump I managed to retrieved using gdb :

(gdb) run
Starting program: /home/codec/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Penumbra Overture/penumbra.bin
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]

Any help would be appreciated.

OK I've found what caused the crash. I copied the config.cfg of penumbra black plague to the folder for penumbra overture. The thing is that there is a field in the config file that tell the level to launch at beginning. And since it was nos the correct game it just crashed. Anyway, to fix this I just had to used the corresponding cfg file.
