Linux – Black Screen Problem Fix

If your OS version libSDL2 library does not match the one needed by the game, the libAkSoundEngine.so library may freeze and the game gets stuck at a black screen with 100% CPU usage.

A workaround for this is to add this to your Launch Options in Steam:

LD_PRELOAD=$LD_PRELOAD:./PillarsOfEternityII_Data/Plugins/x86_64/libSDL2-2.0.so %COMMAND%

To get to the Launch Options in Steam:

  1. -Open the Steam client, click the Libary tab.
  2. -Right-click on Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire in your Games list and click Properties.
  3. -Click the Set Launch Options… button, add the above, and click OK.
