Dirk 2 Testers needed!

By - | Views: 20,329
Troy sent me an email asking if I could ask you guys to help trial his latest game Dirk 2, message is below with download link.

QuoteHello, everyone!

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

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.

Thanks for your help! I hope you enjoy the demo!

Ok, Hamish! I just uploaded a new version. Same link as before. Somehow I missed the fact that the first level was still loading a bunch of old placeholder art that doesn't exist anymore. All of the other levels should be fine.

Please give it one more try, and let me know.Thanks!

I got the same error as Hamish on my laptop. Just sent you the logs as well. It crashes when looking for non-existent textures.

I got them, thanks. But you may have missed my latest updated version. Can you download it again and give it another go? I think I have it fixed.

Sent you an email elaborating my experiences with the new build. Suffusive to say, it works. :)
