Help Test Linux Version

Postby John » Wed May 17, 2017 12:58 pm

Hello,

I have put up a Linux build of the game on the 'beta' branch in Steam. To access it please:

1. Right click on Scanner Sombre in your Steam LIbrary.
2. Select Properties.
3. Select the Betas tab.
4. Select the beta you'd like to test 'beta'. If 'beta' does not show up for you, try logging out of the Steam client and then in again.

Then you should be able to install Scanner Sombre Linux on your computer.

Please reply on this thread to let us know your experience.

Thanks

John

I'd also like a non-Steam version, but I think I might install Steam just to try this out.

So far, mostly good. There have been a couple small issues and one big one that I sent an email about as not to spoil anything. In this game it seems like atmosphere is everything, so I don't want to give anything away. It is very much a game that needs to be experienced.

I only played for a good hour and am deeply impressed. I look forward to continuing my adventure later.

My son noticed some lag on forward movement when he tried it. Strafing and backward movement responded instantly, but there was a slight delay on forward. I didn't notice any delay, so this may be exclusive to his playthrough.

I would have bought the Linux version (and will as far as it shows up on GOG). I would be happy to help test the beta, though.

Guess I forgot to hit submit on my post. I played for about an hour with very few issues. I think the movement issue above is just the way the walking sort of simulates accelerating which took a little getting used to. The biggest issue I'm having is menus cause the mouse to flicker constantly, even when tabbed out of the game. I've seen it happening in a few games made with Unity.

edit - Well I say everythings good, then the game crashes. Happened after opening and closing the steam overlay a few times.
