Fixing XCOM: Enemy Unknown (kinda...)

2022.01.20 01:46 qwertyuiop924 Fixing XCOM: Enemy Unknown (kinda...)

Some of you may have noticed recently that XCOM: Enemy Unknown fails to launch, crashing after you select EU or EW in the launcher. Some others of you may have noticed no such thing. I've found several posts about this issue here, but none of them tracked it down. I'm posting because I have. Well, mostly.
If you have stdout or stderr open when the crash happens, you might catch a glimpse of this:
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) Major opcode of failed request: 40 (X_TranslateCoords) Resource id in failed request: 0x4002fd Serial number of failed request: 430 Current serial number in output stream: 430 game.x86_64: ../../src/xcb_io.c:617: _XAllocID: Assertion `ret != inval_id' failed.
Okay, so XCOM died on a bad X request. Why? And while it was dying here on my laptop, why was it still working on my desktop?
Well, my laptop is a System76. It runs Pop!_OS. My desktop is Arch. But the other difference between the two is that I run i3 on my desktop, and I run GNOME on my laptop. So I figured it was either outdated packages or GNOME.
It was GNOME.
Yes, I kid ye not, GNOME (as of this writing, GNOME 40.5) broke XCOM. I installed i3, and it ran fine. I installed sway just to be sure it wasn't an X vs Wayland thing somehow. It ran fine there too. This might be the fault of System76 somehow (since they do have some custom extensions and desktop chrome, like the dock), but I don't think everyone reporting this was running Pop, so I am more inclined to think this is a GNOME issue.
So at present, the "fix" for XCOM is to use a DE or WM other than GNOME. This is annoying, because while I don't love GNOME, my laptop setup is basically fine and I don't want to screw around with it (desktop is where the tinkering happens. Laptop needs to actually work). Sooo... sucks for me. If you needed an incentive to get off GNOME though, here you go (although it might be fixed in a newer release...).

2022.01.20 01:46 unlocalized_finn But why.

But why. After fiddling around for hours, I managed to get most of the springtails I bought out of the sphagnum substrate they shipped with. Set them up in enclosures with the typical charcoal substrate - but instead of hanging out on the substrate, they seem to be floating around in clusters?

They're not dead, they're hopping around, but they seem stuck in those rafts. Is the surface tension messing with them for somehow? I know they obviously float, but I'm wondering if they're somehow stuck together, of if they're willingly doing that.

2022.01.20 01:46 Impressive-Canary-81 Okay so I have a question about refunds/return

I have a seller who wants a refund but, has not even recieved the item. The reason why they have not recieved the item is because there is a major delay with the post office. Basically the buyer was suppose to recieve the item last week and now it has been 12 days since they bought it. I want to know if they request a refund, will they get it? I know I am probably going to be getting my first bad rating☹️ ahhh I just feel so bad that the buyer is upset. The buyer was understanding up until now and I can understand why

Anyone else always struggle to match gauge? I feel like my tension is quite loose and I’m always struggling to match gauge. This one calls for a 6.5mm to make a 4” square and I’m basically having to work with a 4.5mm. Should I be focusing on tightening up my tension?

2022.01.20 01:46 Pokeballofwisdomn Season 12 exile island

Where is the love for this season? This is my favourite early season and the best before Cook Islands. (Pearl islands is a close second). This season honestly has everything, petty hilarious arguments, some very memorable characters, a challenge beast, good strategy for the time. Is there something I’m missing why does nobody talk about this season? I’m not saying it’s a great season all round it just has this weird charm that makes me love it so much.

2022.01.20 01:46 Physical-Hawk6356 [TASK] Need someone to finish writing the content for my website

Hello,
I have a new website that sells a trading indicator and automated bot but all the information on there currently is generic. I am not very creative with my words and poor at writing. I have a few pages on my site that just needs rewording. I can provide screenshots and explain to you my product so you can write it better.

I'm paying $7 per page completed with content that's about marketing the product.

Thank you.

2022.01.20 01:46 B-man4871 I dont know the right term, but is it possible to add one of those noise bar things that show the audio sound in iMovie?

I think its called an Spectraizer, it updates based on the loudness of the audio. Is it possible to add such an effect in iMovie?
Sorry if this is a noob question.
