    I don't know Ubuntu (or if the game will run fine on Ubuntu) but I will try to help you. :)

    Here are a few questions to help to find the bug.

    1- You have no text in the Menu, but only in the Menu? Text appears normally elsewhere?
    You can avoid using the menu by using the F keys: F1, F2, F3 and F4.

    2- What about the empty console at the bottom of the screen, did it appear only the moment you are displaying the Menu? Or does the (empty) console appear before?

    3- Because the console appears, there should have been a logged bug. Could post (using on the forum the button "Upload a file") the file "giac_data\output_log.txt" you will find in the game files?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just try it, and i got the same problem : No text in the menu buton. I use wine 1.6.2 with Ubuntu 14.04. Maybe Lapinozz have the same version like me. It's late, maybe i will try some other Wine configuration tomorrow.

    God is a Cube is made using Unity 3D (not to be confounded with "Unity" for Linux).

    What is your graphic card? The output log says you have a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400 with 64 Mb of RAM:

    Code:
    GfxDevice: creating device client; threaded=1
    Direct3D:
        Version:  Direct3D 9.0c [nv4_disp.dll 6.18.13.783]
        Renderer: NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400
        Vendor:   NVIDIA
        VRAM:     64 MB (via fallback)
    D3D: disabling render to cubemap on pre-GeForce6
    D3D: disabling shadows on pre-GeForce6
    If you have this material, I think you have an Out of RAM exception. Because the game takes something like 80 Mb of video card memory.
    I made the game so it would work well on my good 8 years old (2006) GeForce 7600 GT with 256 Mo of RAM. I didn't imagine people could still have a graphic card from 2006, with even less memory. XD

    You can give a try by deleting all cards in your PNG_Cards folder and see if the game work (no cards = far much less video card RAM consuming).

    For now, the game put into the video card RAM a 300x300 pixels preview of each card, which is far too much. In the future I will make a less greedy version of the game, and even a low memory version of the game, the same way Factorio have low memory versions.
    In the future I will also be able to give you a Linux build (Unity 3D can create them).


    But first, let's confirm that you have GeForce Go 7400 with 64 Mb of RAM, and confirm that it's not Ubuntu which creates a fake video card with less capacity.
    What is your video card?

    @Schade
    Same thing for you, what is your video card?

    Hi !
    I try to install some Microsoft fonts on Wine and change the version of Windows from XP to Windows 8, but it's don't change anything.

    NoText.jpg
    I join the output log, and i will try to add some basics Windows DLL into Wine.

    my graphic cards :

    VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

    Looks like it's an integrated video card. What bothers me is that the output log is also saying that you have a "GeForce GO 7400" with 64 Mo RAM, the same than lapinozz.
    I know nothing about Ubuntu, but I saw a lot of virtual machines and emulation creating fake physical devices (such as a 64 Mo RAM video card).

    Could you try to launch the game after deleting the content of the "PNG_Cards" folder (all the .png files)?
    This way, the game should take less than 64 Mo of your video card RAM. We will then see if the bug is caused by too many video RAM taken by the game (or something else we will have to find).

    I tried but it's doesn't change anything. adding DLL either. I am not a master of Wine, but i didn't find any option for a Video Card emulation i will search on Internet. But it's strange, the rest of the game work fine, only the text on the button have a problem.

    Ok. So a few more questions:

    1- Do you have text problems anywhere else in the game? Or just in the menu? What about the parameters screen? It should look like that.

    2015_01_27-God_is_a_Cube-19h28m11s.png

    2- Could you try to put the game into another folder? I can see that both you and lapinozz are running the game into "Z:\home\utilisateur\Téléchargements\GiaC-AODNA-v0.5.0.1d". Could you put the game into another folder, so the path contains no accents (é, è, à) and no spaces?
    Sometimes accents can cause problems with some softwares / configurations.

    My install is in home/Schade/GodIsCube/GiaC-AODNA-v0.5.0.1d (Yes I named the folder GodIsCube like a Java programmer :p )
    NoText02.jpg
    I got the problem everywhere a text have to be visible. Maybe I will say something stupid, but which font do you used ? Maybe it's not available on Wine but i can install font. It's look like "Arial" (but i already installed it) or "Calibri".

    I tried to activate some option like Enable direct 3D with OpenGl, Virtual Desktop
    This is the options available of Wine (with a Rusian title... :p ), if you see something interesting to activate, i will try it.
    WineOption part 1.jpg WineOption part 2.jpg
    We can edit some other windows configuration, like the register base and some other stuff.

    Looks like the forum (Xenforo) have a strange behaviour with files using the same name.
    I will have to change this, or it will cause problems to receive output logs.

    From your log I can see that you have too 64 Mb of RAM for your video card. I'm trying to find more informations about your card "Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family", but I don't succeed.
    Besides, I'm not sure if the text error is caused by the amount of RAM. One thing I'm sure of, is that there is an error because you can see the console on your screenshots, and the console appears only when there is a bug. But the bug is not writen in the log.

    I will try to ask people I know who are working on Unity, maybe they know about this kind of bug.

    So after a quick check, yes i have 64M of dedicated memory (and 128M of total memory???) so the fault is not on your game :p
    Thank you for everything

    Edit: is the font is included whit the game? if not i can install itm what is the font used?
