Privateer Gemini Gold 1.02a Released

Postby John Cordell » Sat Jun 09, 2007 4:12 pm

The Privateer Gemini Gold team has just released v. 1.02a. "Some contemporary efforts tried bringing back the Privateer joy of years past, but all have been limited by the blocky 320x200 pixel art in the game. The competing Privateer Gemini Gold has just released a new Open Source Privateer to all platforms with the inflight and ground art redone at 800x600 as well as with all the familiar controls that were baked into the base scenes and immersed the player in the scenes."

Versions for Windows, MacOSX and Linux are available now.

Please leave any comments, suggestions and bugreports within this thread or just email to priv(at)solsector(dot)net.
Thanks and enjoy the game!

I look forward to testing it.

For everyone else, hi! I'm Turbo, visiting from GG. I chose my call sign because I'm not a great dogfighter, so the afterburner is my favorite upgrade. When I get time, I look forward to trying the PU version of the game too.

I know this is probably more a VS issue than PGG, but I ran into several hurdles trying to run the Linux version on Ubuntu Feisty.

To start with the installer needs gtk-1.2 installing. Then it throws the following warnings / errors:

Code: Select all
cp: cannot stat `/etc/timidity.cfg': No such file or directory
loki_setup: Script seems to have failed with error code 1.
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'ToDo.txt' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'ai.easy' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'ai.hard' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'credits.txt' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'icon4.ico' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'priv.icns' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'priv.nsi' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'priv2.nsi' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'resources.rc' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'setup.base.xml' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'setup.music.xml' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'uninstall.ico' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'vega.ico' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'vegastrike.xpm' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'
loki_setup: 2 Unable to find file 'vslogo.xpm' in '/tmp/selfgz16404'


Then to run the setup program I had to install libstd++2.10-glibc2.2 first. After that, running setup gives the following:

Code: Select all
charlie@charlie-laptop:~/Desktop/Games/privateer_gold$ ls setup.*
setup.config
charlie@charlie-laptop:~/Desktop/Games/privateer_gold$ bin/setup
Unable to read from setup.config
charlie@charlie-laptop:~/Desktop/Games/privateer_gold$ cd bin
charlie@charlie-laptop:~/Desktop/Games/privateer_gold/bin$ setup
Unable to read from setup.config


Running the game, there is no audio, which makes PGG basically unplayable. The only mention in the startup output is this:

Code: Select all
Mix_OpenAudio
: No available audio device.

try editing ~/.openalrc
and adding
(define devices '(arts esd native))
to that file (or add it if there is no such file)

we are looking into having the linux installer do this automatically

to lessen the requirements of the installer you can always do
export DISPLAY=
besides...the VS installer has never changed since we first started having linux installers in the Vegastrike world--why suddenly does this one give you issues---did you upgrade your distro and forget compatability binaries (old distros get priority--I want this to work on debian stable--because that's just sensible )


the reason we need such an old glibc is because older distros are much harder to get compatbility libs than newer distros


the "errors" printed by setup are meaningless, ignore them
the way to run setup is to use the symbolic link in your $PATH

privgold --setup

or you can even do
/path/to/vegastrike/bin/vegastrike.sh --setup

Still no sources archive at all, that's a shame because I'm used to
compile everything and I'll not install anything which has a binary
installer different from my distro one.
....
See you on next release.

In a few weeks you will be able to download the sources archive directly from our website.
