Halloween The new nightmare - the first playable release for Linux x86-64!
gbudny 13 Nov
Hi

This is amazing! You can download a first playable version of Halloween: The new nightmare for Linux. Farox fixed the issue with loading the TGA images, and pocak100 solved many other issues that you can see below:

- Turn on automatic mipmap generation
- Add CMake as an alternative build method
- Enable window
- Let's show what we draw in the window
- Let us interact with the menu
- Don't skip the splash screen
- Fix console buffer overflow
- Reenable keyboard
- Load jpeg files using libjpeg-turbo
- Plug memory leak
- Don't delete textures in UnloadMap(), since we never reload them
- Nasty workaround to keep the mouse within the game window
- Grab all input while ingame
- Restore labels in the controls menu
- Rectify confusion between color and depth buffer bit depths
- Plug another leak
- Fix some minor buffer overflows
- We're not using GLU anymore

I would like to remind you that the commercial version was published for Linux in 2003, and now you can play it for free:
