    Just tried the bard’s tale: needs a 32 bit libXpm.so.4 that is not packaged for Arch Linux.

    Edit: ok, it’s in the AUR ( https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lib32-libxpm/ ) but I wanted to complain.

          A lot of manuals, not just one. I had bought SuSE 7.3. Great distro back then.

            What can I say... I bought this bumble just for Worms

            Unfortunately, when installing Worms, it does say it installed and a "download" happens, but the download is 0kb and when hitting "play" it just says "missing executable"

              Anyone else notice that the letter I in the word "with" in the title is capitalized?

                libXpm and libopenal are shipped in $dir/res, but the binary is compiled with rpath=./ instead of ./res (so just move the files). Furthermore, the Humble package ships the movies in .mp4 format, but the game looks for .ogv so the movies never play... You can copy those from a Steam installation, which is otherwise identical.

                    Since when do you have to pay more than the *Linux* average for the BTA games?

                      Ah thanks. The crappy mp4 movies did play for me. Maybe we didnít get the same archive? There are two download links with no explanation of the difference; I got the second one thatís named ď.tar.gzĒ.
                      Unfortunately the developpers assumed everyone would be using a qwerty keyboard so itís pretty hard to configure correct key bindings.

                        I can't seem to get Worms to work with the steam install. Looks like the app directory is empty, and I keep getting a missing executable error message. Anyone else get this?

                          Hm, if you convert those videos from mp4 to ogv, would that help? The videos don't play for me. HB also offers two different files, no idea what is different though. I got TheBardsTale_Linux_1381813411.tar.gz

                            Converting videos helps (inside the movies subdirectory there):

                            Code:
                            for file in *.mp4; do ffmpeg -i $file -codec:v libtheora -qscale:v 9 -codec:a libvorbis -qscale:a 5 ${file%%.*}.ogv; done

                              I remember when support meant mailing a guy in Finland who wrote the kernel. I think it was wonky memory (on school computer) that generated non-maskable interrupts. Installation was a bunch of tar files and a kernel. Then I stumbled upon a free distribution called SLS.

                                I have that somewhere in my closet. The Worms SNES cart, complete with box and manual :P
