Re: Humble Indie Bundle 7

Nice!

I was waiting for this thread to pop up.

Anyone else not being able to find an actual executable for Shank 2? There's just libs and resource files.

Closure and Snapshot work nicely (but have to turn the Nvidia card on for the latter, or the textures won't show).

However The Binding of Isaac's performance isn't very playable for me (laptop with Intel i7 Sandy Bridge and a Nvidia GT540M). Tried the standalone flash program, Firefox and Chromium. Chromium seems fastest, but not fast enough.

I haven't tried Dungeon Defenders or Grimrock yet.

Re: Humble Indie Bundle 7

Binding of Isaac's performance was never good, because it is a flash game and usually only use the CPU (and maybe only one core).

Re: Humble Indie Bundle 7

I have an i5-2400 and Radeon 6970M on an iMac 27' using xf86-video-ati. Here's what works so far (I'll keep this list updated):

- Snapshot: Works perfectly on 2560x1440. No slowdowns, no artifacts, nothing.
- Closure  : Works perfectly on 2560x1440. No slowdowns, no artifacts, nothing (I have a second display which the game simply blanks (i.e. dark screen) when run in fullscreen. In other words, it the second screen becomes useless for other stuff, i.e browsing).
- Binding of Isaac: I have working GPU acceleration on Chrome + Flash 11.5.31 (bypassing the GPU blacklist in chrome://flags is required) so the game works perfectly, without any slowdown etc.
- Vessel (from HIB6, just became available for Linux, check your download page!): Even in 1280x700 windowed mode with this high-end GPU, it's unplayable. Everything is extremely slow (<10fps). Proprietary drivers should help.

Legend of Grimrock is a very good game! Especially if you like classic dungeon crawlers. Highly recommended!

have you made a PKGBUILD or just installed by hand?

Same error here.
Then I opened /usr/local/games/Grimrock and with a double click on Grimrock.bin.x86_64 it worked.
Don't know why.

Sadly, I can't change the resolution (even if I edit the config file in .local/config/AlmostHuman/Legend of Grimrock).

Re: Humble Indie Bundle 7

For DungeonDefenders, I get:

XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0"
      after 123 requests (123 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0"
      after 18 requests (18 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

with my integrated intel card, and

ERROR: ld.so: object 'libdlfaker.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'librrfaker.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
Xlib:  extension "NV-GLX" missing on display ":0".
X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  154 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
  Serial number of failed request:  53
  Current serial number in output stream:  54

with my dedicated Nvidia.

So no fun. Also many people on the Shank forums report the archive is corrupt, hence the missing files.

Don't know why.

That's because the script /usr/local/bin/Grimrock.bin.x86_64 is starting the executable from a different directory than /usr/local/games/Grimrock.

Open /usr/local/bin/Grimrock.bin.x86_64 and replace the content with something like this and you can start it normally:

#!/bin/sh

cd /usr/local/games/Grimrock
./Grimrock.bin.x86_64

With the Nvidia card:

Please check that your computer meets the minimum system requirements and that your graphics card and sound card drivers are up to date.

And I don't think my Nvidia GPU doesn't support a stencil buffer when my Intel card does. hmm

If you love Eye of the Beholders series then this game is a must buy. Clearly for me at least one of the best games in 2012. Played in wine back when it came out originally.

Re: Humble Indie Bundle 7

There's new tar archive for Shank2! Now it can be launched, but it's not working for me. I have Intel HD 4000 GPU, 64bit system, and I'm getting this error: "Missing required OpenGL extensions". I have installed mesa and xf86-video-intel, intel-dri with these X11 settings:

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
   Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"

Re: Humble Indie Bundle 7

I had the same problem with Dungeon Defenders as others.

Icculus apparently did the port, so they have a section in their Bugzilla site about it:

https://bugzilla.icculus.org/buglist.cg … esolution=---

The problem as far as I can tell is covered in this bug entry:

https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5820

What fixed it for me was:

ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver-command

As root (e.g. sudo), of course.

Apparently the port doesn't handle the lack of existence of gnome very well.

Re: Humble Indie Bundle 7

Grimrock is working for me too. Thanks Arch community!  (My graphics card is an Nvidia GeForce GT 230)
It only took a couple really minor changes - removing the "::" from the source array in the PKGBUILD for grimrock, following instructions from the comments for sdl2-hg, and adding cd command as thestr4ng3r recommends.

Now I can continue from where I got stuck before..

Re: Humble Indie Bundle 7

Reply from almosthumangames (Legend of Grimrock):

S3TC (S3 Texture Compression) is required to run the game. If you are using OpenSource graphics card drivers (such as intel, older ATI, or nouveau), you need to enable enable S3TC via driconf.

I had to install libtxc_dxtn from AUR. Now, the problem is performance - Snaphost runs ok, but Shank2 isn't smooth at all.

Re: Humble Indie Bundle 7

Snapshot runs great for me. Legend of Grimrock is nearly flawless on my Intel HD4000 (just needed turn down one of the effects....what a great game so far, right up my alley. I'm hesitant to even try Shank 2 because I could never get Shank 1 to run properly.

Does Closure really require NVidia (requirel libcg, which I can't find for Intel)?
