    Yeah, that's what I was thinking, just wanted to know which website to watch for the release. Of course, I also wanted to avoid the whole Q3A Linux/Loki thing (buy the Windows license and unwittingly shaft the Linux porters).

      Thank you VERY much for your support in that regard.

      It's not so much that I'm wanting the $$$ (Well, I do...) but it's more for the numbers I'm trying to get so we can get bigger and better stuff!

        I emailed this morning i think (GMT Time) about testing

        Can't wait to post some decent shots in an article for gamingonlinux.

        Will they be keeping you on for support like bug fixes and such? I guess they would have to?

          Yep. They don't have the in-house expertise and even if they get where they're comfortable doing the stuff themselves, there's going to be times where I'll be needed for things.

            Just a heads up to others, I found the email welcoming me to the beta test had been marked as spam by Gmail.

              Ditto. I wouldn't have seen it last night if it wasn't for the fact that the word "ccommand" caught my eye just as I was going to clear out my spam.

                I got copies of all the submissions people sent in. Which made it quite hard to miss

                Haven't had much time for the game yet though, but it seems to install and run okay.

                  I got copies too(oddly), they were in spam though and I couldn't be bothered to search through 300 spam messages for the invite, assuming that I was accepted into the beta anyway.

                    But you did find the mail with the login details and URL to the game? If not, it should have "[ccommand4linux] Welcome to the Cortex Command Beta!" in the subject.

                      It actually works for you? The install finishes, but then it doesn't find files that are in the proper place... I'll download it again and give it another go, maybe I'm just doing something wrong.

                        i've tried the beta client but i can't make it run on 64bit due to the lib64Xpm.so.4 while it requires the 32 bit libXpm.so.4 i hope the 64 bit client will be upload soon

                          Ahah! Strangely, the mass-forward of silliness made it to my inbox, but the actual meaty bit that was useful got tagged as spam. Silly GMail... Well then, よろしく!

                            oh okay, I received an invite, somehow it didn't show up when I searched for it before.

                              That's because you're installing it like a "proper" Linux program and placing it for global user-use (per your email...)- I'll explain more in my email sometime tomorrow (just got back in from being out of town to go see my wife...) but suffice it to say that currently, deviations from what it defaults to may not work right (mainly because it's a straight up port from Windows to Linux without helpful things like PhysicsFS wired into the game...). There's another gotcha that came through to me via Kano where I find out that a .so I presumed to be a "universal" one ISN'T and some distributions apparently don't default install it.

                              A new build will be out shortly, hopefully partially handling the problem you're finding, the one Kano found, and probably 64-bits.

                                Niiice. I'll try to be less spammy then and gritch at Google's GMail team- that wasn't SPAM and shouldn't have been flagged by GMail as such.
