Description Michael Mair-Keimberger (iamnr3) 2020-07-21 15:19:19 UTC
Hi,

Since media-libs/alsa-lib-1.2.3* it seems that most/all unity based games (steam games) are broken. In my specific case (cities skyline) it still worked with 1.2.2 but doesn't work with 1.2.3 anymore.

I made some more tests and it seems that many games are already broken with 1.2.2 too:

working with 1.2.2:
cities skylines
crosscells

not working since 1.2.2:
hexcells
huniepop
wayout
dreamfall chapters

With 1.2.3 none of these games are working anymore. However, i could find the file which caused the problems. Simply renaming:
/usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf
actually make all games playable again, however with no sound then.
