Games. Counter Strike 2 On Steam

Counter Strike 2, game play.

I've been struggling with this game for a while.

The game is going through changes, and the errors were not apparent to me, at that time.

For quite sometime the game required building shader files and would crash after the sometimes 35min wait.

I deleted the game and reinstalled (3 times this quarter) but no play.

Then game would not start in steam.

Eventually I saw an error in the steam diagnostics (thank the devs for that).

The last 2 lines...

pressure-vessel-wrap[2596]: E: Diagnostic output:
bwrap: Creating new namespace failed: nesting depth or /proc/sys/user/max_*_namespaces exceeded (ENOSPC)

I saw that the setting on my system was not set.
I looked at some of the other settings and presumed it needed the same range as the others.

I can insert the code required to set this parameter for the linux kernel.

echo "user.max_user_namespaces = 63505" > /etc/sysctl.d/max_user_namespaces.conf

Reboot to set the namespaces parameter.
check the list with...

sysctl -a

I hope this will help.

Regards Glenn

I play World of Warships on Devaun/Steam/Nvidia and it works very nicely. So I'm following this thread too! Good Luck!

Hi, I'm glad to report that it works like a charm.

Re: Games. Counter Strike 2 On Steam

There were some problems here too with slow building of shader cache - every startup. But in my case I could disable it. Supposedly there is some minimal lag sometimes when the game is starting but I haven't noticed much.

Re: Games. Counter Strike 2 On Steam

I think it's a pain to wait for tens of minutes to play and that's before connecting with a server. (not that I do, I only play bots.)

I've reported, "the game is not ready to play". I have only tested the CS:2 that one time after the above adjustment.

I have had the game play first time, but never again numerous times, that's still to be exercised (checked).

Even though I have checked the "steam system analyze" logs quite a few times, but missed this specific error message.

I was also confounded by steam's help practice, only if you're paying (imho). No sound from them when dealing with Linux, or very quiet anyway, community forum is the best it gets.

Anyhow, I'll give the game a whirl this afternoon and report back. Thank you.

Re: Games. Counter Strike 2 On Steam

Yeah, using Linux Steam leaves you almost on your own. But I've found a good place at the Proton GitHub. Here:

https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Proton/issues
There you can find more info on the Shader Cache problem and several workarounds.

There are also another line of Proton you could try, it's the "GE"-line. Those versions can be downloaded and manually copied to the steamapp directory.  I'm running those for some months now.

Re: Games. Counter Strike 2 On Steam

Thank you.

I got into a game yesterday and with all the graphics settings max out for quality the game chugs a bit.

With the graphics settings set to default (best for my machine) it's not so bad, but when it worked before it was fluid.

Thanks for the link. :-)
