    I also have the occasionall hickup, but there aren't many of them, and the game only pauses for a split second. The "problem" is barely worth noting.

    All in all, a solid, stable port. Thanks, Icculus! (I already had the game and was playing it trough in wine. I wasn't too far in it yet, so I can play the rest native. Biggest improvement is that I now have surround sound in the game, where as wine only supported stereo )

    I didn't have the tiny hiccups in wine, on the other hand.
    I think the prey master servers are down. Probably they wont be put back online. So the only way right now to connect to a server is to manually connect or to use the direct IP option in the browser menu. There was a server i wanted to join, but i kept getting a "cant connect to pure server : no downloads offered" error. I looked it up, and that error occurs when the server cant find some pk4 files in the client's base dir. But i have a fresh install of prey, with no mods, with patch 1.4, so i dont know why i get that error.

      This is indeed the source of the problem. If there's a meta-mode that describes just one of the screens in addition to the ones for both screens then it plays nice with the dual head setup.

      Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

        Anybody had any luck getting Prey to work on GMA950 based hardware?

        I've been trying to get it to work on an Acer Aspire One running Kubuntu 8.10 but haven't had much luck so far. The games into, and menu system are fine but once the game play is started the screen is rendered very darkly, almost completely black, and only in black and white for the most part.

          Sadly, you don't have enough muscle to play this game. Especially on the netbook you're trying it on. If it had a bit more GPU in it, you might have a chance- but with that GMA950, you might as well try something else.

            Today arrived tuxgames.com prey edition. Surprise is that it's Soldout windows version with included CD with linux installer..
            and, unfortunately, there is bug in setup script
            Code:
            cp ./.prey-installer-12072008.bin /tmp
            chmod 700 /tmp/prey-installer-12072008.bin
            cd ..
            /tmp/prey-installer-12072008.bin
            installer is with dot at begining but it try to run without dot

            But still, I am glad that I supported linux company and let's play it now! :P

              That's anyways a very bad practise. This entire script should be just:
              /bin/sh prey-installer-12072008.bin
              EDIT: That is unless the .bin file is a true binary and not a script/binary mix as it is commonly done.

                they copy it from cd because when run something from cd, you cannot umount it and mount preydvd then

                      It wont have a logo on it, it'll be a windows version with a burnt CD with the installer because they don't have the rights to publish the game.

                      Edit: Blast you skkayman, beaten to it again!

                        Bow, what a lame solution, i prefer downloading the installer anyway. The game was cheap, bought the Win variant of course. Incl. shipping less than 7 €. Of course not bundled with a seldmade cd with installer *g*

                          Heh... The big deal is being able to obtain the Win variant. That's what this is- unfortunately, there's no rights access for a publisher to produce an "official" meatspace version for Linux. I'm just tickled that they (finally...) let Ryan provide it to us.
