Consistent Book of Unwritten Tales crashes with last two beta drivers (Linux)

Question asked by gmjck on Aug 6, 2013

In the Linux version of The Book of Unwritten Tales, with Catalyst 13.6 beta or 13.8 beta, entering certain areas of the game causes a crash to desktop every time. This is a separate issue from the known crash to desktop associated with going to the Settings menu, which has a community fix.


The first place I noticed this was when Ivo enters McGuffin's house. The game crashes as soon as the new area has loaded, every time. I was running Catalyst 13.6 beta when this was occurring. Reverting to the Catalyst 13.4 (non-beta) driver resolved this.


After completing the game, I installed the Catalyst 13.8 beta driver, and now see the problem again. I no longer have a save file from just outside McGuffin's house, but I do have one save file from inside the Crypt, and one save file from just outside the Crypt (area with the Paladin). Every time I try to load the Crypt save file, the game crashes to the desktop as soon as the area is 100% loaded. Every time I load the Outside save file, it works fine, but then every time I try to enter the Crypt, the game crashes as soon as the area is 100% loaded.
