Heroes of Newerth – Fedora 16

December 23rd, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

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warning: The VAD has been replaced by a hack pending a complete rewrite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" ""
