Tennis Elbow 2013 Linux - Beta !

Postby manutoo » 05 Feb 2013, 07:30

Hello,

here the Beta of Tennis Elbow 2013 Linux :
http://www.managames.com/download.php?T ... ux_Beta.gz [Permanent direct download link to the latest version]

I tested, but not a lot, so please report any glitch, bug or crash you may experience. Post your System.log if possible.
It's working with Ubuntu 12.04, so I guess it should work with other Fedora distrib and hopefully most of other popular Linux distrib ; don't hesitate to report if it's working well on your distrib..!

Your Key is working with this version, just copy it in the game folder.

So far, I noticed these 2 bugs :
- sound is very delayed, about half a second
- mouse doesn't work in fullscreen

I hope that both are because I'm running Ubuntu within VmWare.

Right now, it's still missing the config tool to select your language ; I'm going to create it soon.

Note: like the Mac OSX, the Linux version doesn't have Network support (and it will likely not change till someone port DirectPlay to *Nix :fear: )

I just updated the Beta : the game was requiring you to have installed SDL and all its dependencies to work ; now, all the required Libs are loaded from the subfolder "SdlLib" , or at least hopefully so ; I successfully tested on a naked Ubuntu 12.04, but maybe other distrib will miss some libs ; thanks to let me know if it's the case on your Linux.

will eventually try it out in OpenSuse 11.4 or 12.1 (don't even know which I had installed :lol: )
Tour Mod.

Tour issues by PM or Skype.
If you don't add me nor send me a PM, you might see your chances reduced. Inform me about anything that might have went on with your matches BEFORE deadlines, otherwise, decisions won't be changed.

I updated the package again, added a couple of libs, and now the game auto-detects the language on 1st start, and lets you change the language from the "Misc Options" menu.
Website has been updated as well, so that's a Release Candidate, hopefully working well... ;)

I can see a few people downloaded the game in the past weeks, so that'd be nice to get a couple reports, even if it's to just say "everything seems ok"... :blackeye:

My experience with Tennis Elbow 2013 on Xubuntu 12.10 64-bit:

For installing on 64bit platform is needed to install some OpenGL libraries, my configuration needed
Code: Select all
apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::=--force-overwrite install libgl1-mesa-dri:i386

Game is running fast and fluently (60 fps) even on my busy Lenovo T420 notebook.

Good work manutoo ...

ivosh,
thanks for the report !
I guess it's the 32 bits version of the OpenGL lib.
Was it easy to figure out it was needed ?

Not really :) ... if you put error quote "libGL error: failed to load driver: i965" into Google, then second answer is right ...

ivosh,
what would you expect to explain you what lib you need ? A "Readme.txt" in the game folder ? A "DependencyLib.txt" ? Something else ?

Great game! It would be good if you could also release 64 bit binaries for Linux :)

JuanVCS,
according to ivosh, it's working on Linux 64 bits... Did you meet any issues ?
A 64-bit version wouldn't bring any noticeable performance gain, and I'm pretty sure I'd run into some nasty bugs now & then... :fear:

Hi manutoo, i did just download Tennis Elbow 2013 (TennisElbow2013-Linux.tar.gz). My OS is Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit, when i launch TE2013, i get this error:

Code: Select all
error while loading shared libraries: libcurl.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Then i made a link with:

Code: Select all
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.4 /usr/lib/libcurl.so.4


And i got (launching TE2013):

Code: Select all
error while loading shared libraries: libcurl.so.4: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64


It seems that 64-bit libraries doesn't works. Tips? :P

Thanks a lot and congratulations for your great games.

Solved installing 32-bit libraries. The game is awesome. :) The only issue i have now is the crash when i need to quit the game, then i have to play in window mode.

Havoc,
how did you install the 32-bit version of libcurl and make the game load it ? (I'll create a Readme.txt & put the instructions in it)

Not so sure, because i did install the new drivers AMD Catalyst 13.4 manually, compiling .deb packages. And during the installation, I had to install shared 32-bit libraries required to compile. I suppose that fixed, involuntarily, the issue with TE2013. :)

Then, i think i solved by:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs


And another thing: it's necessary start and kill TennisElbow2013 from terminal, at least on my system.

Havoc,
