Hi, I have been trying to get Icewind Dale 2 working on Ubuntu 16.04. I started with the build on the repo, it works with the base font but character dialogue isn't rendering correctly. I tried to replace it with another font but then I get a segmentation fault.




After that I tried that latest dev build off the website. It works fine and doesn't have the issue with the text, but its still small and I would like to change it. Trying to change the font makes it crash after the intro videos. I couldn't find the plugins with this build, I didn't know if they weren't included or if you had just changed the way you handled them, but that might be the cause of the crash.

The dev build is static, that's why there's no plugin loading output. However custom fonts worked for me pretty recently, so I don't have much to go on. Do you get the crash with something other than freesans too? What did you change in fonts.2da?


btw, that ubuntu package is two versions behind. Bionic currently has the latest.

GemRB - IE anywhere.
