Help running the demo

At the risk of sounding like an idiot... what exactly am I to do with the files in the Linux 64bits demo version? I gather that it's the Alcyone- The Last City file, but I've tried doing everything to it that I could think of and I can't get any kind of response out of it no matter what. Help, please?


Hey Alterion, unfortunately I'm not a Linux user and I haven't been able to test that as much as the Windows and  macOS versions just yet. I remember this coming up during the kickstarter campaign and other users had comments about it (including running the 32 bit version with extra dependencies).

I think the demo contains a 32-bit binary for Linux in the download but let me know if I've left it out.

This comment might have some useful information, otherwise try running it through the launcher (or without it, vice versa) instead of downloading it directly. If you're still having trouble let me know and I'll poke my much more knowledgable Linux friends for help. Unfortunately given the wide variety of distros out there it's hard to know what the problem is without more information, but this (hopefully!) shouldn't be an issue by release.

No, 64 bits one is definitely the correct version (and at any rate I tried just in case, can't get it to work either), but on the bright side, you reminded me that has its own launcher which I managed to completely forget about and it works fine with that. Thanks!


Very glad to hear that! :)
