So, today i installed HoN (“Heroes of Newerth”) on my fedora box, to try it out. I downloaded the linux client installer from their web site and installed the game.
Eagerly, i ran the binary only to be greeted by an ominous message:
$ ./hon-x86_64 warning: The VAD has been replaced by a hack pending a complete rewrite Crash log saved as '/path/to/my/home_folder/.Heroes of Newerth/game/crash_x.x.x.x_xx.log' Segmentation fault
In order to fix this, i created the file named startup.cfg, inside the
$HOME/.Heroes of Newerth/game
folder, where i added the following line:
SetSave "gl_modesetting" ""
