Civ 5 instant crash

As per topic, I have a base 2012 Alienware M14x r2 (with a upgraded screen) that has a Nvidia 650M.

I’m experiencing instant crash for my Civ 5 on steam. I thought it was because Archlabs wasnt recognizing the nvidia driver so I have installed bumblebee as per Arch wiki instructions and had it running. But the game still instant crash.

No sound, no logo, just black screen for a few second and it closes.

I’m rather new at linux and wiki seems to be quite complex. Can anyone tell me simply how to check for the cause?

Please follow the wiki. It may seem complex, but you need to go through it in order to correct any issues you have or will have in the future.
