[Linux] Problem running Kosher edition
« on: November 26, 2013, 12:23:13 PM »
Hi :)

I compiled ags on my system and extracted the data of "The Shivah: Kosher Edition" via innoextract:.

Quote
innoextract ShivahSetup.exe
Extracting "The Shivah" - setup data version 5.3.10
 - "app/Shivah.exe" (30.8 MiB)
 - "app/acsetup.cfg" (305 B)
 - "app/agstouch.dll" (7.5 KiB)
 - "app/agswadjetutil.dll" (8 KiB)
 - "app/audio.vox" (27.2 MiB)
 - "app/speech.vox" (46.9 MiB)
 - "app/winsetup.exe" (52 KiB)
Done.

Everything fine until now. When starting the game I get the following error:

I only found a problem concerning the demo (Kosher)  but no solution (or I've overseen it). It seems to be a problem with those missing libraries. How can this be solved?

Edit: Richard Sanders's GUS patches to get midi (Allegro / patches.dat) are already installed.

We are not being Linux users ourselves, so it is difficult to test it properly. I'm afraid we don't know much about how the Linux engine works, which is why we don't offer a Linux version on our store (we don't feel right selling a product we can't support properly). As for why this specific game doesn't work, it is probably because we made some changes to make the iOS port and it seems to conflict when compiling the Linux version. We are unsure what those are, but I believe the AGS Linux Engine wizards are doing something about it.

Thanks for your reply Dave. I already found Informations on GitHub. Perhaps you can offer the "old" version on your Website - for Linux users. Perhaps it is possible to add both versions on Humble Store. Hopefully the wizards will mix a good potion.  :)

The game should be playable on Linux with the "release-3.3.0" branch of the engine.

And for the record it also works with wine.

Great.  :D I'll test it. Thanks.

I know - but I prefer the "native" way.  ;)
