    Hi Creators,

    Regarding the new PDA videos, I would like to ask something. I play on linux since 2019 using Valve's Proton compatibility layer. Empyrion runs very well and I can access servers without EAC, since EAC is not activated for Proton by the developers yet. On the other hand the new feature of the PDA that access a webbrowser from within the game fails to work. I get spamming error messages on console and they wont stop unless I exit the game and resume the save. Bellow is the information :

    [3D WebView] 413101100 [Chromium stdout] : [0616/174322.885:ERROR:sandbox_policy_base.cc(358)] Failed to add sandbox rule. error = 2, subsystem = 0, semantics = 0, pattern = 'Z:\mnt\Linux Games\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Client\Empyrion_Data\Plugins\x86_64\VuplexWebViewChromium\log-chromium.txt'

    When I look into the relevant log I find these :

    0222/125413.941:ERROR:network_change_notifier_win.cc(228)] WSALookupServiceBegin failed with: 0
    [0222/125414.211:WARNING:gpu_process_host.cc(1296)] The GPU process has crashed 1 time(s)

    [0329/124655.998:ERROR:network_change_notifier_win.cc(228)] WSALookupServiceBegin failed with: 0

    Can someone please explain to me what exactly is used ? I have the ability to isntall various dlls for windows in the prefix of the Empyrion inside Proton files for the game, but I do not know what to look for. A small investigation from similar faults on other games I found the information about wininit, though installing it did not solve the "problem" I asked with other post but the post was treated by the developers as a bug, which is not and it was locked. All I was trying to do was to get a reply from someone who might have an idea what to look for and point me to a direction. Maybe it is a Unity3D object I am not familiar with. If it is really a bug I will do a bug report on Valve's Proton on github.

    Any information or idea is much appreciated guys. I know it is not the scope of this thread but maybe it is something that has to do with PDA.

    All those are installed in my Linux distro but this has nothing to do with the fact that they need to be installed in the prefix. A prefix is an environment that holds all information files and settings of a windows game and pass that information to Valve's Proton to run the game (or program) in linux. Thing is that I managed to install them on the repfix except vuplex, which seems to be mandatory. Linux is very welcome to free, licence wise, stuff, and hard to work with proprietary. I suppose I have to wait for vuplex support for Valve's Proton. Or keep looking for the right place to do it myself.

    Thank you for your reply, much appreciated. :thumpUp:


    Upd: Seems Valve considers this as a bug. I made a feature request and their personnel stated moved it to a thread for official support request regarding Empyrion :

    "....we're using one issue report per unofficially supported game title, so I've gone ahead and transferred this issue report to #4911 (comment). This is clearly a bug, not a feature request as well."

    OK.
    • Started watching the really old tutorial videos, they actually help a lot even if it is old content. Because I actually know nothing about the PDA. I've hardly ever played missions, because they are just so cheesy sometimes... and here I am trying to make my own to add to the cheesy, Who am I Fooling?
    • Spent a whole 1 hour reading this entire thread. Yes, it's that long.
    • Imported my almost blank scenario files, pressed F12 (which is illegal to do in most States of the USA). And noted that import was apparently good.
    • Created a dummy PDA (had some trouble that it was not saving my "creator name" to the browser cache, kept going back to say 'Enter Name'). And exported it OK on my 3rd attempt.
    • Copied it into my scenario (I feel this needs me to write an automation shell script LOL to also update my savegames files)
    • Tested Scenario and original Default tutorial spam all gone YAY!
    • Punched that Paypal button
    So, the question:
    People keep mentioning documentation, I'm assuming the best docs for the PDA are actually the things that @RexXxuS has built into this tool. Is that roughly accurate?

    What a journey :) Cool that it worked in the end with what you've got so far.
    THANK you a LOT for your PayPal button punch :D It motivates me a lot to update the tool and improve it.

    I think yes. There is no up-to-date public documentation afaik but I try to give for all important properties a documentation.
    Just click on the question mark button

    Hi Creators,

    I've added the free convenience feature from eWCCT to eWPDA as well: Scenario name at the top left corner so you know in what scenario you are working. Especially useful with my Import foreign Dialogues Pledge feature.
