    I've noticed that a few of the games are getting patched for Windows first, then Linux (if at all). There are also several games with updated tarballs, but no updated RPMs or DEBs.

    Originally, I was just going to ask: can anyone comment on which games... if any ...are 64-bit native? I emailed HB support yesterday so I could find out before buying. No response so far. The lack of 64-bit builds is getting very irritating. My laptop is running fully 64-bit Linux with zero 32-bit libs. And it still has a hard disk. And only 8GiB of RAM. I refuse to install 32-bit support libs just to play a couple games.

    If I continue to buy the HIBs, I'll be allocating funding to only the developers who didn't build with Flash (or AIR, worse), and only those whose Linux ports don't appear to be entirely half-hearted.

      New dowload

      Here is a thread about this on the official Klai forums. I hope it will be fixed.

      PS: Trying to download from the site, maybe that file is good.
      Humble Indie Bundle updated the download file today. Both the Torrent and main page download. I was able to download and extract Shank 2 but now I can not move left or right with any of my game pads the attack buttons work though.
      I sent Humble Indie Bundle an email hopefully they fix this as this is the game I bought the Bundle for.

        I'm done with HB; next time i'll give them 1$ just to test the games they will send me and eventually i'll raise my offer.
        No more "pay more than the average" for titles that won't work or has been ported so badly they can't even start.

        Anybody tried the great psychonauts port? wine makes it run faster than the native version ported by icculus.
        Ah, he was the same to port dungeon defenders; what a man.

          Yeah the psychonauts port isn't very good. The last patch did make a lot better and I completed the game under linux. It still has many graphical glitches and the last patch came out back in August.

                  after 149 requests (149 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

                  after 18 requests (18 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
            There is a very easy fix for this problem:

            ln -s /bin/true /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver-command

            The game assumes that GNOME-Screensaver is installed. When it's not the game crashes. See also https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5820 for more informations

              While I understand the reasons behind the frustration, I dislike the tone you are taking about a man who has done more for Linux and free software gaming than almost anyone alive. He has a much wider body of work than you might realize, much of which is absolutely stellar.

              The biggest problem in my mind is actually the mad rush pace they keep doing for these bundles, which is making them a support a nightmare. Currently playing through Torchlight with my still headless character...

              As for Psychonauts, expect an updated port sometime in the new year:

                I paid 2 cents for the bundle.

                And even then I feel like I already overpaid for such cookie-cutter games.

                    You're right, I should have paid 1 cent and distributed the games for free over torrent.

                    No DRM = free redistribution. Which is what you anti-DRM proponents always fought for.

                      Wait. What?

                      I hope you're "just" trolling.

                        Look at the torrent url. They are already freely distributed. As long as you know the url to the torrent.

                        If you are trying to troll... What's the point? I mean, saying obviously stupid things is not good trolling. That's on the level of "Obama is a muslim socialist communist" etc.

                          I think some peoples egos need adjusting.

                            I like Icculus to an extent. His libraries alone are amazing (if somewhat incomplete). Although his apparent and often voiced dislike for unix heritage (not that a different more lay file system layout or case insensitive file systems would bug most users) ruins it. I like the guy and his work but he seems to want Linux to be Windows for some reason. I don't use Linux for games, I like that their here and purchase them often for show of support but truthfully I play almost none of them because of rushed or broken ports or just uninspired *indie games without any level of fun.

                            *not all indie games are bad, look at angry birds or world of goo for instance. Just most fall short of entertaining to me on some level.

                              I am sorry, it is not my place to judge other people's tastes in games, but I must admit this made me laugh.

                                If somebody wants to try a patched sdl 2.0:

                                http://kanotix.com/files/fix/sdl2

                                It basically works with it, but it does not remember that it should be fullscreen on startup. No symlink required. The patch was from the sdl bugtracker.
