    Question Cannot run the game

    I have the exact same problem as this guy:
    I'm running on kubuntu last version.
    I played hon during 1 year on the same machine, no components were add, just reinstalled kubuntu after major crash.

    khaotyl@khaotyl:~/HoN$ ./
    warning: The VAD has been replaced by a hack pending a complete rewrite
    K2 - Fatal Error: ARB_vertex_buffer_object not available.
    khaotyl@khaotyl:~/HoN$ glxinfo | grep -i "opengl\|direct\|server\|client" && lspci | grep -i vga && uname -a
    direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)

    Linux khaotyl 3.2.0-24-generic-pae #37-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 25 10:47:59 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    Last post in the other thread asks the OP to do

    mkdir -p "/home/$(whoami)/.Heroes of Newerth/game"; echo -e "SetSave \"vid_bpp\" \"32\"\nSetSave \"vid_refreshRate\" \"60\"\nSetSave \"vid_resolution\" \"$(xrandr | grep \* | cut -d' ' -f4 | tr x ,)\"\nSetSave \"gl_modesetting\" \"randr,randr11\"" > "/home/$(whoami)/.Heroes of Newerth/game/startup.cfg"

    but i don't get any response..

    Thx in advance for your help


    After rebooting everything went fine.
    The command proposed by the host seems effective even if no message is displayed.
    Thx a lot

    You should use the drivers from nvidia, the open source ones are not the best experience when playing hon but good that its fixed.

    reboot fixing this probably resulted in the nvidia module being loaded.

    Also that bash 1liner is no longer needed. hon has been patched to correct the issue requiring it
