I'm on Ubuntu 18 compiling the game using cmake, whenever I press "Start game" it crashes and gives me the message:

Segmentation fault

any help? I've tried rebuilding it from scratch to no avail...

Same issue here on linux mint 20.3.

I was playing the game with Wine, but I've had several game-breaking crashes so I thought it was a wine problem, and that they would disappear when playing natively.
Game compiles properly. Editing any config or starting the game however, segfaults the game.

Attached here is a handy-dandy pic of the crash.

A string question history was introduced here and it seems that both crashes are caused by a string question.

I opened an issue.

I made a pull request about it. Let me know if it works and if it doesn't break anything else.

I guess like this?
I think you want the chain-link symbol to make urls.

Anyway, merged, thanks
