I cannot play the game since 16-10-2020. (Edit to reply Chesti: Linux 64bit, used files from the itch.io )

I tried to reinstall Zero-K, removed all relevant contents and folders.

It seems the engine is the cause, was there an update?

Run the game in the game directory, in my case ~/Downloads/zk , executing the simple command
./Zero-K.exe or mono Zero-K.exe

Zero-K.exe Information: 0 : Checking for self-upgrade
Zero-K.exe Information: 0 : PackageRefresh complete - packages changed
Zero-K.exe Information: 0 : Querying default engine
Zero-K.exe Information: 0 : Reseting configs and deploying AIs
Zero-K.exe Information: 0 : Connecting to steam API

Zero-K.exe Information: 0 : Steam online
Zero-K.exe Information: 0 : Starting

A transparent layer was created as a result.

My last game was my moddified local game only edited units/vehriot.*

Edit: I didn't realize Zero-K is now avaiable on Steam under Linux, thanks mojjj I will try the steam version, and it works.

Edit 4th time:
Steam version do startup but the network is unstable and lagging, often logout and my actions in lobby is lagged, however I shall see the other's in-game, is this uploading network jam?

i have steam and use this command to start (on linux)

cd ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Zero-K && ./Zero-K_linux64

Strange: installed on Linux from Steam and it is working, the folder is native Linux then why not declare Linux support on steam?

Because there was another underlying thing.

Unfortunately jumping through all the hoops to formally indicate Linux support on Steam is more complicated than merely making it work.
