      • Braid got an update today:

        Changes since original build:
        - Added support for systems without S3TC support.
        - Added support for PowerPC and 64-bit Intel Macs.
        - Added support for amd64 Linux systems.
        - Possibly fixed never-ending black screen that some Mac players experienced.
        - Now attempts to choose correct language at startup, if a translation is available, on both Mac and Linux.
        - Added notes on useful command line options to Linux README.


        working fine under fedora 14 64bit!

        • New builds of Braid and Cortex Command address (almost) all the complaints so far (S3TC, installer error, intel64, readme). "Ultrapolling" mouse is still broken in Cortex Command, but the workaround is easy so no biggie for now. Good job on the new build Svartalf! Good improvement on the documentation icculus (can't say more unfortunately as the new build introduces a fatal bug).

          • Update to my last post: the fatal bug in Braid is related to the shipped version of libstdc++.so.6 in the amd64 build. Game works fine if I let it link to my system's libstdc++.so.6. So good job icculus as well!

            • Cortex Command

              I have CC segfaulting on start. All that appears in the terminal is


              xxxx@Blackline:~/CortexCommand$ ./CortexCommand
              Attempting to start PulseAudio sound driver
              AL lib: pulseaudio.c:485: Context did not connect: Connection refused

              [Error] OpenAL Error: (null).

              Initialized sound against ALSA sound driver.

                Several things:

                1) Did you disable PulseAudio?
                2) What sound chipsets?

                My development environment consists of a 32-bit and 64-bit install of 10.4 and there's something up with your configuration.

                  First, awesome turnaround time on this reply. It's unbelievably appreciated.

                  But yes, PulseAudio is disabled in favor of ALSA. My sound card is a PCI Audigy with 5.1 surround.

                  Is there any specific terminal command I should run to give you more detailed info?

                  • How about deleting the libopenal.so.1 and using the system wide one?

                      Moved libopenal.so.1 out of my CortexCommand/libs directory and onto the Desktop. Same results as before:


                      Attempting to start PulseAudio sound driver
                      AL lib: pulseaudio.c:485: Context did not connect: Connection refused

                      Attempting to start ALSA sound driver
                      Initialized sound against ALSA sound driver.
                      Shutting down Allegro due to signal #11
                      Segmentation fault

                      ALSA seems to be starting, (I don't have any issues with it anywhere else that I'm aware of). Is there any way we can see what Allegro is choking on?

                        That's a bit troubling... It's attempting to use PulseAudio which should've simply gave you the failure to open notice and moved to ALSA- how did you "disable" Pulse, if I may ask?

                        I don't know if it's Allegro choking or not. You're going to get the response you're seeing if it has a segfault within anything- and even if it was Allegro choking, the only good way is with a debug build...

                        So, let me verify the facts. AMD. 10.4, 32-bits. Pulse disabled. Audigy. (Sigh...the one thing I DON'T have in hand right at the moment... ) Right?

                        I guess first thing would be to find out how you're disabling Pulse and see if I can reproduce it on my stuff, followed by the same attempt with an Audigy...

                          Heh, you're going to kill me in the face for this, but here ya go.

                          I followed those instructions verbatim. They're a bit long and not exactly a turn-key solution, but that's what I did. In fact, that swap works so well that I wouldn't have thought it to be a suspect here, (although nothing surprises me anymore.) Maybe I've just been lucky?

                          That's correct, yes. (And I've found one will always need precisely the tool for the job that's gone missing. Also, I'm bitter. )

                          Okie dokie. Those instructions are pretty clear and they worked right out of the gate for me. I'm willing to re-install PulseAudio if I've really got to, but I'm trying not to "got to", you know?

                          • But now that I think of it, I remember seeing that "connection refused" error before in another program... pSX I believe it was. Don't think it's a permissions error either as sudo didn't work. I had to update the client to get it working again.

                            This error wasn't in evidence at the time I did the PA - ALSA swap. pSX worked great for a long time before an update (no idea which one) borked it.

                            • got the same error but after installing pulseaudio & enabling it, i got this:
                              $ ./CortexCommand
                              Attempting to start PulseAudio sound driver
                              Initialized sound against PulseAudio sound driver.
                              Shutting down Allegro due to signal #11
                              ./CortexCommand: line 4: 5387 Segmentation fault ./CortexCommand.bin "$@"

                                Can't try to find what caused this for you guys unless I can reproduce the system conditions.
