I still have no idea why the original problem was happening, and also why WASD works (I never...added WASD support but thats FINE)...it should be you can make choices with up/down arrows (W/S) but I guess its not working for you... what operating system/version do you have again?
1) It looks somehow you are copy/pasting the text “avadurkin78@penguin” which of course isn’t going to run as a command
2) “ls” as in “lowercase L lowercase S”, not “capital i”!
3) I’m assuming you never successfully pasted the directory (since its not found)...what happens when you click ON the “Linux files” folder in the sidebar (of your first screenshot)? It should be completely empty and then you can paste into it:
And then try the command line steps:
Could you try a different resolution (settings->resolution), just for this scene? I think 720 should hopefully still fit on a chromebook screen. I have no idea why this would work, but apparently someone running windows32 who encountered the same problem managed to fix it this way. If not, I'll take a look at the logic and see if I can tighten it up in the evening!
Hey! This is a very specific question but when Stan gets to the doorway does he do a little growl and shake before he gets stuck? Trying to pinpoint where this might be breaking. I just checked out the latest build on my chromebook in case I accidentally introduced a bug while uploading a patch, but it's not happening for me ):
You can try, just in case:
1) Restarting your computer
2) A different resolution
The....browser? Are you sure? If you’ve gotten to the turtle icon I imagine you’ve successfully unzipped the file.
I see you’re on Windows. Do you know if you have a 32bit or 64bit operating system? If you could include a screenshot, that would also help a great deal.
Ok, cool! The screenshot was actually super helpful. The next line of dialogue includes some garbled/cursed text, which I'm thinking on most machines renders fine but on specific machines.....crashes. I've updated the builds to just use plain text, please download and try again and see if it works!
Hey! You’re I think the second person (to tell me at least) who gets this persistent crash at this point in the game. Thank you for including this screenshot- so it definitely crashes exactly here? Is it when you try to load the next piece of dialogue, but without it successfully getting rendered?
Ok.... I am terrible sorry about what an ordeal this has been!
The reason I asked about chromebook model is because I wanted to see what chip it runs on. There are two main types of computer chips- Intel (x86_64) and ARM- and programs that can run on one cannot run on the other. The vast majority of chromebooks (and also computers) run on Intel chips. I had thought ALL chromebooks run on Intel chips (mine does- it has a little “Intel Inside” sticker), but apparently recently there have been some models that run on ARM. Unfortunately, there is no way for me to get this working with ARM chips, so if your chromebook model uses that you won’t be able to play the game . Again, if this is the case I am extremely sorry!!! This has probably taken up so much of your time!!!!!
.....oh, shoot... can you tell me what your chromebook model is? I have a suspicion what might be happening, but I’m hoping its not the case...
1) It’s “L S” not “1 S”, but that command shouldn’t matter
2) Can you also try chmod +x OutsideVoice.x86_64 and then ./OutsideVoice.x86_64, and see if it works?
Anyways, here are a comprehensive set of screenshots with the steps. You will have to use the linux terminal to get the game to run, I’m really not sure how to break it down any further than this.
