Drox Operative Linux Demo
 
We now have a Drox Operative demo for Linux! If you are a Linux user, go check out the demo now. You can download the demo from the Drox Operative demo page. We would also love to get feedback on how the demo runs on your specific distribution and what, if anything, you needed to do to get it to work.

Thanks for supporting Linux!
I am definitely going to try the Drox Operative demo on two of my machines.
I'll leave feedback with the results of the demo.

I tried it on Mint 16 on a laptop using AMD graphics and running open drivers, and it seems not to work with them, this is what I saw:

My test box is using open drivers on an old ATI/AMD card, so I don't think it is only that. You might want to open up your ~/.local/DroxOperativeDemo/User/log.txt file and see if it says anything relevant in there.

Ok, I've got a lot of Couldn't find Textures there, not sure what I can do about that, though...

Can you email me your log.txt file?

From the log file, there are 2 problems.

First, the game doesn't find S3/DTXC texture compression support. This you might be able to fix. For me on Ubuntu 12.04 I had to do something like this:
PHP Code:

sudo apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0 

After it finds no texture compression support, it uncompresses all of the textures into rtx files, which is what it is suppose to do. However, for some reason it then can't find the files it just created. I need to look into this problem.

Yes, that was the problem, silly me, forgot to add it after reinstall. Anyway, now it works perfect, fullscreen and window, switches resolution etc. Can't find anything wrong with it :)

Any chance you will port later Din's curse too for fantasy lovers? :)

Is the package named libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0 on Mint?

Also have you been able to actually play a ship successfully for a little while? Another Mint user is having some issues.

I will probably port Din's Curse to Linux.
