Appimage crashes at first launch.

Recommended Posts


I am using the AppImage to start OpenRCT2.

When launching the software I am informed that OpenRCT2 will require files from Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 and an [OK] button.

When I press the [OK] button, instead of letting me select where the files are at, it pops up another window that says, "(undefined string)" and an [OK] button.

After pressing that [OK] button, the window closes and nothing happens.


Any help would be appreciated.

So as soon as I posted this issue, I decided to run the AppImage from the command line, which gave me the helpful information below


$ ./OpenRCT2-0.2.6-linux-x86_64.AppImage 
(undefined string)
An RCT2 install directory must be specified! Please edit "game_path" in /home/JJNova/.config/OpenRCT2/config.ini.


Went into that directory, opened up config.ini and looked for game_path.

Added the directory path to the game launcher between the quotation marks, and saved the file.

Opened the appimage and OpenRCT2 now launches.


I will leave this up in case someone else has a brain fart and had similar issues.
