Linux Drox Operative on Steam
The Linux version of Drox Operative is now available on Steam!

Is there any way to transform my windows-based save games to the linux version?

The files should be compatible. You would just need to move files from your Windows computer in C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local (assuming Vista or newer) to your Linux computer in ~/.local/DroxOperative/User

I'd like to play some more Drox these days, and i'm now running only on Linux, no more dualboot with Windows.

Is there a way to get a key for Steam Linux ? I own both Drox and IofA.

What do you need ? Product ID ? Key ? Email ?

Hello ? Pleeease ?

I can probably set you up. The easiest way is to email me from the email address that you purchased the game with.

Also, i forgive you for being slow.

Hi, I'm really enjoying Drox Operative, and I have it running in Windows through Steam, but when I run it under Linux I get the error "Couldn't find Database/database.dbl"

I'm running Arch 64-bit (rolling release). Based on this post I installed extra/libtxc_dxtn 1.0.1-6 and multilib/lib32-libtxc_dxtn 1.0.1-5

Based on this post the error "usually means the executable is running from the wrong spot compared to the assets or one of the zip files has gotten corrupted some how." I uninstalled and reinstalled it for Linux through Steam. A file named "Database/database.dbl" exists in Assets/

Any suggestions on how I can fix this? I'd love to be able to play without rebooting my computer into Windows. Thanks!

It sounds like it isn't finding for some reason. Are you running the game in a way that would change the current directory somehow?

I have Steam for Linux installed, and I'm running it through clicking the "Play" button in Steam. Looking at the install directory (.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Drox\ Operative/) the 'DroxOperative' executable is a sibling of the Assets directory. Are there logs I can collect that would help? Is there a way to run it directly that would generate better logs?
