    Steam won't start games. Getting an Error.


    Hello! First off allow me to say that I am asking this in place of a friend. I don't actually have a Linux machine myself, But theirs is having some issues and I thought I would try to help them out by getting some expert help with it!

    Effectively, They are trying to play a game through steam called "Age of Empires 2: HD Edition".

    Sadly, Every time they try to launch the game, It says "Game is Starting". That vanishes, Then the game never starts.

    I will post the error code it gave below!

    If you guys need any information, please let me know and I will ask them your questions. Thank you for all the help, It is very much appreciated.

    Oh! They also mentioned something about being on "Playonlinux".

    It's probably that the game code just isn't compatible with PlayOnLinux (which is basically a windows emulator). Some things aren't. From the error codes it looks like the GPU driver isn't being initialised correctly, would be my guess.

    There is a native Steam client for Linux, but I had a quick look in mine and Age Of Empires isn't available on Steam for Linux.

    Your friend might have more luck installing a Virtual Machine using VirtualBox, installing Windows 7 in that virtual machine, then installing Steam natively inside that.

    Or alternatively, just dual-boot Windows with Linux. Unfortunately Linux hasn't completely caught up with Windows when it comes to gaming.
