[Testing branch] Borderlands 2 not starting on steam

Maybe I will have more luck here than on various search engines.

For some time now I have not been able to launch Borderlands 2 on my laptop. This is new behaviour, but I am not sure when exactly this started occuring (I don’t play regularly).

This is what terminal shows me when I launch Borderlands 2 on Steam

[2021-08-03 21:30:53] Shutdown

Maybe someone has encountered similar problem and found a solution, I for once am having difficulties finding something that works. I have tried few launch commands I have found on few threads on Reddit.

So far, this is the only game that is not launching from my library. The game did launch without a problem few weeks ago.

I am very bad at seeing reading through these logs and I am not sure which error I should really look into.

Thanks for the help in advanced

P.S. I have tried proton-ge as well, that didn’t work either.

Does it launch with the stable client?

Why? Borderlands 2 is native.

The Native version of Borderlands 2 (and The Presequel) are so bad… I literally get 30-50 more FPS using the Windows version with Proton.

Also, you can’t play Co-op with other Windows players using the Linux version as there is a version mismatch as the Windows version has 1 more update than the Linux version iirc (though maybe that is the presequel)

@olividir have you followed any of the suggestions here yet?

Didn’t know I was in publicbeta client beta. I haven’t changed anything in steam. If this is the proton releases, I have tried few versions but no luck yet.

I have not, but like I said, the game worked flawlessly until few weeks ago. Started very shortly after I installed a new game.

I will go through these after work later today and see if something does work. Thank you for the reminder.

Not wanting to highjack the thread, im having the same problem running dirt rally. Did you manage to get it working, or have any ideas on how to proceed?

Unfortunately I haven’t had the time to really dig into the problem, so no, I haven’t figured anything out. I am hoping that some updates will get it working again.

I just got the game starting again. I had to add launch command

PROTON_USE_D9VK=1 %command% -nomoviestartup -nolauncher

Do you know how to put up a launcher command?

Sadly did not work for me. I’ll create a new thread for my problem! Ty for the help, though

Have you tried to delete (or rename) your prefix (save the game-saves before).
Then retry , may be it will start.

for me the saves are here:

/mnt/JEUX/STEAM/steamapps/compatdata/49520/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/Documents/My Games/Borderlands 2/WillowGame/SaveData

and the prefix:

/mnt/JEUX/STEAM/steamapps/compatdata/49520

so you delete (rename) 49520 folder

and restart steam

I think your solution is not the solution. You have dual GPU system, in theory by default it uses the Intel chip, you HAVE TO force the use of Nvidia on demand for games, I think with prime-run command in your Steam game startup option (the first option).

if you want it, in Steam settings, opt out of Public Beta in Account → Beta participation. Maybe it is simply a Steam Beta update that fixed your issue.

I did check last 3 good proton drivers available under “Steamplay”, as well as proton-de, but the game didn’t launch.

This is true, I have Intel/Nvidia, but I have been using optimus-prime (I actually start the laptop in Nvidia mode), and there was never a problem launching any game until Borderlands2 started giving me problems. All other games launch without any command :slight_smile:

Maybe prime-run command is enough, I’ll check it out next time I have time for games.

OK if you have Nvidia mode forced that should be enough then :wink:

But again, you’re ignoring or reading completely wrong what I and Yochanan said.

Steam CLIENT Beta, the Steam CLIENT, the CLIENT, not Proton. THE STEAM CLIENT BETA

:crazy_face:

I’m still convinced your fix was just a coincidence. Try to remove your startup option for a test, does it still work? If yes my theory about a Steam client beta update may be correct.
If it was working before without these launch option, you shouldn’t NEED them now that’s not logical.

Went out of Steam Public Beta and removed the launch option, tried to start the game and it didn’t launch. I also did restart just in case, and the game didn’t launch. So I am guessing it is not the case.

Tried putting in the launch option again (still out of Steam Beta) and now the game launch. Your guess is as good as mine why this is happening.
