Thanks for fast response, despite Christmas period. In the attachment you
can find both Xorg.0.log and 400 lines of syslog copied aftere booting
comptuer in recovery mode after freez.
This is happening 9/10 times with this game, I know one other free game
(Heros of Newearth) works fine, while steam launcher stopped starting after
installing bumblebee-nvidia (this is probably another bug must be some
library mistmatch).

So for this problem, files are in attachmenet.
