Wasteland 2 Director's Cut: Can't save or enter at Ranger Citadel under Linux

2019-01-18 1 min read linux Games Alexey Bogdanov

The Linux version of Wasteland 2: Director's Cut has a weird bug which doesn’t allow either to save or enter (sometimes) into Ranger Citadel location. This is an engine-level issue in the used Unity version: Unity loads into memory multiple copies of the sames game files.

To fix this issue we need to update permissions for max open file limits in Linux. Open /etc/security/limits.conf file as root user (or using sudo) and add the following 2 lines at the end of the file:

username soft nofile 4096
username hard nofile 8192

username should be replaced by the real user name.

In case if it doesn’t work, try the following

sudo sh -c "ulimit -n 8192 && exec su <username>"
