    Ankh 2: Heart Of Osiris demo

    As linux-gamers.net pointed out: the linux demo for Ankh2 is available for download via torrent, thanks to liflg for hosting it.

    Over here it works quite well and it allows some 20mins of gameplay. Not really much, but enough to see if it runs on the hardware/software combination you have.

    Wouldn't we all?

    Yeah, I understand that too. So, I think it's really going to cater to a group of people. I'm just not into these comedic stuff and cutsy adventure games. I hope they get better games soon. I'd love some more serious games on the plate.

    It isn't a bad game but compared to some of the amazing adventure games around (and graphics in an adventure game aren't all that important really) it is lacking. As for the port if you compare it to LGP games it is lacking; although I am grateful for the linux versions.

    I actually have the full game. The problem is that for some odd reason, on my ATI x1600 mobility it works perfectly, always has. but on my 7800GT desktop it worked (albeit very slowly and with lots of glitches), but on my mom's NV 6600 (the original machine I got it for) the game had all of the mentioned issues. It would misbehave badly, if it worked at all.

    I finally got it working by running the beta 177.13 drivers. (Those drivers seems to run considerably slower than any of the other drivers, but work perfectly with that game)

    So, for once the problem is the NVIDIA drivers.

    I had to install using "linux32 ankh2-blah-blah-demo.run" for it to properly install on my 64-bit machine, but still I couldn't get it to run (I can only get to the Deck13 screen, then all is black (or the Deck13 logo is flashing dimly in the background). All I could get from the logs was the afore mentioned problem with some CG programs (apparently)and even that was a bit scarce as the only error es something like "Compiler found an error" or something to that effect. When I get back home I'll post what it was exactly.

    Worked great here, just needed to use a workaround for the loki installer not liking 64bit.

    I can't get past the first scene though..,

    No I get the same problem, upon checking the logs, it appears that the program is failing to compile some CG programs.

    Were you able to get the demo to run properly?
