    Getting run errors on linux, "player data archive not found" with latest Unity 5.6

    Mono config path = '/home/username/GameName/GameName_Data/Mono/etc'

    Preloaded 'ScreenSelector.so'
    Preloaded 'libCSteamworks.so'
    Preloaded 'libsteam_api.so'
    Player data archive not found at `/home/username/gameName/gameName_Data/data.unity3d`

    Anyone know why?
    This is not the beta build.

    This is just a diagnostic message about an optional feature.

    its the only message I get before the session crash.
    Is there some logs available for Linux when a game is started?

    Same here on Unity 5.6.0f3

    Set current directory to /home/ale/build
    Found path: /home/ale/build/test.x86
    Mono path[0] = '/home/ale/build/test_Data/Managed'
    Mono path[1] = '/home/ale/build/test_Data/Mono'
    Mono config path = '/home/ale/build/test_Data/Mono/etc'
    Preloaded 'ScreenSelector.so'
    Player data archive not found at `/home/ale/build/test_Data/data.unity3d`, using local filesystem

    Did you ever figure this out? Trying to get SteamVR Linux builds working as well and having the same results.

    How is this supposed to work? I dont see any log on my linux (Ubuntu 16) server.
    Seems like Ubuntu tries to open data.unity3d, but there isn't such a file present.

    I got the same error, game build with Unity 2017.1
    "Player data archive not found at `/home/eruheran/MasterServer_Data/data.unity3d`, using local filesystem"

    Same Problem here with Unity 2017.1 on Linux, the player data archive is not found.

    What is the player archive anyway?
    And what is the data.unity3d file?

    I cannot find any Information for those two anywhere.

    It seems this is architecture related. Changing the architecture to 32-bit(x86) works for me.

    Got the same issue on Win (32 and 64) so I'm not sure they are related. We have multiple users with 64 bit machines that are complaining on the same issue.
    "Player data archive not found at `/home/.../data.unity3d`, using local filesystem"

    Just use this to find where cache is located: https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/LogFiles.html
    And remove the whole game folder inside and your game should work!
