Hey guys,

A lot of people have been asking for help with installing this game both here and on my video. I've added the instructions to my video's description (below) and I'll paste them here also:

Installation Instructions for Windows:
1) Download from https://mcintyre.itch.io/pc-building-... (make sure you pick the Windows version)
1.5) Wait :( :( :(
2) Unzip the zipped archive
3) Run the executable - DONE :D

Installation Instructions for Mac thanks to Seangibbz:

I've finally gotten the mac version working.

It turns out I had to do some tweaking with permissions. This is possibly because they have it distributed as a .appfile inside a zip archive. (as opposed to distributing it in a dmg image like most other common mac apps).

1. Download the mac version
2. Extract the zip file
3. Optional: Rename the app from Mac.app to PC Building Simulator.app
4. Optional: Move the app to your /Applications folder
5. Right click the app and select Show All Contents
6. Go into the Contents, then MacOSfolder
7. Open a terminal window and type: chmod 755
8. Drag the Mac file from the MacOSfolder onto the terminal window (which should now read something like: chmod 755 /Applications/PC\ Building\ Simulator.app/Contents/MacOS/Mac
9. You should now be able to launch the PC Building Simulator like any other app

The legend, Jawtheshark has written an installation script for Ubuntu 16.04. His instructions are below:

Sorry for using DropBox (you don't need an account to download it). It's probably the easiest way, unless there is some kind of repository for this project. Anyway, the script is rather quick and dirty, but should support both root (system-wide) and user-based (local) installation. I have only tested it on Ubuntu 16.04, but the "supported" string also includes 14.04 because I wanted to show the syntax. That does not mean it worked, or that I tested it on Ubuntu 14.05.

Anyway, if you do download the script understand:
* You should never run scripts you do not trust or understand, especially not as root.
* It assumes a bunch of installed tools, like "unzip", "lsb_release" and many others.
* It might not run on the distro of your choice.I tried to write it for the default Ubuntu shell, which is dash and should be POSIX compliant. Should... No guarantees. I am but human, and while I tested, I tested just superficially.
* Keep in mind that the script itself must get the executable permission.

Alternatively, you can run it by writing "sh install-pcsb [...]" where [...] are the parameters.
There are three parameters. All are optional, but if you specify no parameters, a system-wide installation is presumed and you better use sudo (or run as root)
--source to specify where the downloaded zip file is
--target to which directory this zipfile must be unzipped. This target needs to exist and you need to have write permissions on it
---force Skip the "supported OS" feature. This is mostly for people wanting to try it on other distributions (at their own risk, and I won't give support

Good luck.

I got that error on Arch Linux

There is no data folder

I might be out of my depth when it comes to Arch Linux :/ I haven't tested it on Linux myself.

will be the opportunity and sell PCs and build new and make money?

I believe this is the goal for future releases, yes.

Thank you so much for these instructions :) I've added them to the main post. I'm on my phone at the moment so I can't format them as a quote but I'll do that tonight.

Working on getting some Linux instructions for the thread :)

Windows ne zaman gรผncellenecek

When I downloaded game, unzipped it normal and when I want start it it just says I need to have directx 9 which I dowloaded to and then it is not accepting it and still says i dont have directx and drivers for my gpu are not correct. Can you pls help me

From experience, downloading directx is no small task. Can you please confirm that you downloaded from this link: https://www.microsoft.com/EN-NZ/DOWNLOAD/DETAILS.A...

Secondly, you might need to update the drivers for your graphics card. This can be a bit tricky too, the best thing to do is work out if you have an Nvidia, Intel or AMD graphics card, then google "INTEL/AMD/NVIDIA Graphics Drivers" and there should be a helpful form to direct you to the right drivers.

Yes I've dowloaded directx from that link. I have laptop which has amd cpu(AMD A series A4-6210 / 1.8 GHz) soo it has amd gpu(AMD Radeon R3) too. I'll try that with drivers

i'll write exactly how it says in error "Failed to initialize Direct3D, Make sure you have at least DirectX9.0c installed, have drivers for your graphic card and have not disabled 3D acceleration in display settings, InitializeEngineGRapgics failed"

Could you give me best option where to download drivers coz I'm not very sure in my reserch

I have never heard of the AMD Radeon R3, are you sure this is the right graphics card? What version of Windows are you running?

Oh, my bad, i was looking for specs online and i saw wrong. it is amd e1-2100 apu with radeon hd graphics. i am running windows 7-64bit

http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/auto-detect-...

You can use the tool at the link above from AMD. This will automatically detect your graphics card and help you get the right drivers. Also, good choice on operating system :D The last good version of Windows.

that's exactly what i downloaded and I choosed custom pick for drivers and i just took first two options (cant remember name) and it was downloading until one spot where it stopped and there is for almost 1.5 hour

Try this one: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop/legacy?product=legacy2&os=Windows+7+-+64

Hello.

When I load up the game. I says 'Unable to load mono library from "C:/Users/[Name] [Dun stalk me]/Downloads/x64/PC Building Simulator_Data/Mono/mono.dll" (error = 126).'

Help.

can you confirm that that file exists and you are running 64 bit windows

I am using at 64 bit windows. And the 'Mono' File exists too.

please try running the game as an administrator

Already tried it, kept saying the same message

Try redownloading and extracting to a folder on your desktop. This should hopefully fix it. Next suggestion after that is to try the 32bit version

Works! Thank you ^^

no worries

McINTYRE, it might be a good idea to pin this now that the page is getting so many new posts
