Your computer issue is having windows on an older pc. Get a manjaro on it and have fun :>

I gueeeess a stream deck would help with that, but yeah, I get the whole thing with the ui appearing during stream if you put the mouse over the window. Also, I had a few minor problems with hotkeys too, but nothing too bad considering I'm doing what I can in Linux, and we know how bad it is to do game-related stuff in linux without a partner pc to help with the streaming. The program lockups are a pain.
Again, nothing happening with VeTu, it's still a beta that could and hopefully will improve.
I couldn't even run the HTML5 version on my browsers under Linux. Does this only run on Chrome, or is it only working on windows anyway? The windows version does work but it like most games running through wine lock up if I alt-tab, which isn't optimal, but that's on me I guess.
About transitions between expressions, a wee bit of coding on OBS hotkey commands might do that. You code Veadotube to use some unintrusive hotkeys (which might be kinda hard) and make actual hotkeys on OBS, so that when you press the actual expression, it takes notice of what was last pressed, presses a transition key for half a second, and then the actual expression hotkey. This is a bunch of if/else logic with some time windows between them.
I have no idea how to make macros or hotkeys work on OBS tho, I just know (or think) they exist :v
Hey there, I'm here looking for info on the "transparent" setting and stumbled on your comment. Did you figure things out? If not, here's a few tips:
Choose one of the basic BG colors. It's fine, believe me.
On OBS (or your streaming program of choice) you need to add a new window or game source (Not sure why I can't get a game source from OBS in Linux. eh). Choose Veadotube Mini and add a chroma key filter on it. Adjust the similarity settings as you see fit depending on your avatar colors.
Make sure the avatar source is on top of the actual game source, so it's showing over your game.
You might need to shrink the avatar down on OBS, just select the source and you can use the highlighted contour to reduce size.
That is weird... What's your OS? Most things should launch right off the itch launcher if your OS is compatible. Some might not launch because they just don't have an executable file, are not compatible, or are just annoying and you NEED to extract and open them manually.
Nope, you're just fine. After the bundle is over, you can navigate to your library and you should see a "bundles" part in there. Click it and you'll see all bundles previously purchased, so you can get whatever you need.
My only question is, as someone who wants to donate, what happens with the repeated games from the bundle? Do I get an extra itch key that I could give away, or nothing besides the donation? 🤔 Don't get me wrong, I will most likely make the donation because of the reason the bundle exists.
I just tried to set my avatar and use a hotkey, and it didn't register the keyboard besides ESC.
Went into the troubleshooting page, and it say "do the sudo thing in linux"
... I'm not versed enough in linux to use SUDO with the two files you provided ;w; I'll try to make a launch script and see if that works.
"Vi-aaaaado, que programa perfeeeeito"
Seriously, this is great stuff, I even started looking into any kind of *expression* recognition software to press the hotkeys instantly, and there's probably a handful of them around, but I'd have to implement code myself :p Which I can't yet. But this is certainly a good starting point for the videos I'd like to do, and the type of avatar I want to use! Left a follow for the full version!
I tried to install the game through the itch app on a linux laptop. It didn't want to, gave a few errors and then I tried a manual approach.
Downloaded the game directly off the page, and after making it executable, it ran fine. Problem is, I couldn't change language, and when I tried the keybindings option to check controls, the game crashed.
Bug report aside, I just wanted it to run in portuguese to show it to a friend. Is this available in the itch version?
Something weird happened. The Itch app doesn't seem to be translated to, or doesn't seem to like Brazilian Portuguese.
I changed it in the app and the window just goes black. I tried running the updater and no luck. Trying reinstalling the app.
edit: I was able to fix it by finding the configuration.json file and removing the "Lang" parameter. Seemed to happen also on european portuguese, but not on spanish.
I have the game on steam, but whenever I see a pixelart game, I wonder...
"What engine does this game run on,? Would it run on a raspberry pi?"
The second question would most likely get a "no", but I can dream.
It's an engine you need to learn at least a thing or two to mess with. I can't begin to imagine how full of lost people this place would be with the program being open.
Unlike some other development tools out there, this is heavily focused on coding and how to use the most of it in a limited enviroment. I want to learn more, but I'm just using it to run the games on a raspberry for now. Also, most of the games are free anyway, with a select few being actually sold somewhere. Konsairi being one of them.
This is a 2 in 1 topic. I like pico8, but there's something extra about PQ93 that caught my attention. Not sure how to explain yet. Are there any project page/forum to find some of the games made in this?
For the linux crash part, I just tried launching and it didn't even open. Sent a report through the itch io report system. Also, a shame that the raspberry projector/port is on ice for now :c
No, I'm not a dev, simply another player that does like to mess with things to make them work in the weirdest places since I got a PSP.
That said, also no, the BIN file is a genesis/mega drive ROM because this game was originally made to be able to run on the system. Just like Pier Solar has a genesis compatible version.
About the missing library not being included with the game itself, I believe it's a thing about linux games in general. They MIGHT install additional libraries for you, (specially if it's steam stuff) but more often than not, they won't. When they don't work, you need to check for log or launch them from a terminal to know what kind of error it spits out, find out how to install what it needs, restart if necessary and try again. It shouldn't be as tiring as "missing .xna package, install from microsoft site" but it feels more tedious or like it is extra work because we're likely not used to it.
I get what you mean about "don't get extra packages unless you trust them" but I personally don't mind it much. I've used way too many sketchy software in windows to be worried about everything I'm getting on linux. I dunno, it just feels safer?
It's basically an old library, I'm just not sure how to install it either.
The command should be as follows
sudo apt-get install libpng12-0
Thing is, like I said this library is old and may not be found by your system. Not even Wine saves this one because the graphics get messed up. At the very least it comes with a Mega Drive rom version too so it's the one saving option for us Linux users.
If anyone knows how to work around forcing installation of older libraries, please do elaborate.
Action rpgs, not even 3D ones, just sidescrolling/platform ones with light rpg elements and good combat. Stuff along the lines of early "Tales of" games and Odin Sphere.
If there was a decent battle system for rpgmaker xp i probably would've tried to make a game in that in the past.
I could learn a thing or two here. While not a game developer, but a creator in general, I had my drive diminished to really low tiers. This reached the point where I can't do art or write anymore, and I WANT to make games. I have such great ideas, but with the barrier of learning how to code and the whole lack of energy for creating brought up by a ton of unfortunate events, I just couldn't make much for the past MONTHS. This has been going since before the whole pandemic (and cop bullshit, lemme add) happened.
You can also make a .sh script to run things. It ends up working like a link to the program itself, and is very useful for new linux users and raspberry users alike, since it's so easy to find examples of.
Alright, the program/script thing is new to me, but I couldn't find anything about minit on their site? From what I get of that, I download and install the ./play.it thing, make it run the installer...? Thing is, the installer is the .deb version which you said was broken. And I need a script from the site or something, but it is not listed for minit there.
I'm very thankful for your help up until now, but I'm not making any progress, just getting frustrated. Was the script shared in some discussion board?
I'm using the right version, downloaded the 64bit file, used some instructions to put it on the /dev/lib folder and linking the libraries through a command...
No deal. I'll try to restart my pc, and if it doesn't work, I'll try to install both 32 and 64 versions on the sepparated folders.
Any extra help is appreciated.
You can setup the itch.io app, it works a bit like Steam, albeit more limited. It still helps with managing downloads and keeping your library more accessible. You can always just download the games and extract them manually anyway, most of these do not have instalation files like ones purchased from GOG, they're just zipped.
Games for a different system, say Windows, can't be downloaded directly. You need to download them externally, extract the zip or run the exe file through wine, and then you can just run the game, again, through wine.
Aside from Minit, I didn't have much issue with most games I tried, specially having the second option of running the windows versions. (running Kubuntu 20.sumthing~)
I noticed the bundle does -not- give steam keys. That said, I can work around the download issue by just manually downloading from a browser. Still not sure why the app is so annoying with the downloads.
Thanks to that, I can't play Minit at all on Linux with barely any way to troubleshoot it. When this happens, I can try to run the windows version through wine, but in Minit's case, not even the windows version works.
