Dirk Dashing 2 is almost ready for its pre-order release, and I could use a little help testing the Linux version!
I’m using a new Linux installer this time around, and I want to make sure it works. I recently became aware that my Bitrock installers (which I used for my other games) were crashing on Fedora 15, and although the latest version of Bitrock fixes the problem, I can’t afford to upgrade. So I’ve switched to InstallJammer. This is my first installer I’ve made with it. I’ve already found and fixed a lot of initial issues that my testers found, but now I want to open it up to test on a wider set of distributions.
In return, you get to play through the demo a week ahead of it’s official pre-order release. Let me know if you find any bugs, and feel free to comment on the game itself – especially if you like it (I could use the encouragement)! Suggestions are also welcome, though bear in mind that any enhancement requests probably won’t make it into the initial beta release.
You can download the demo beta from here:
The game uses OpenGL, and requires the use of accelerated graphics drivers. It’s 32-bit, so if you’re using a 64-bit distribution, make sure you have the 32-bit compatibility package installed. I’m not sure if some distributions have them by default, or if you have to manually install them.
Please e-mail me regarding any bugs, comments, suggestions, etc at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your help! I hope you enjoy the demo!
