Sanctimonia: Looking for Testers
Kevin Fishburne left a comment a few days ago in which he outlined how to get the game running. Since it is being built for Linux using the GAMBAS programming language, it’s not quite straightforward for Windows or OS X users to make it work…but it’s not hard to set up a Linux VM, either.
…one may play the game for free using Linux in a VM, dual-booting or setting up a separate machine. There are two PPAs, one for stable and one for daily, so installing GAMBAS is pretty straightforward. To play you need to extract the binaries (main directory and contents) and run the executable using gb3. So:
1) Boot Linux Distro
2) Install Gambas
3) Download binary
4) Extract binary
5) Run executable in binary’s main directory
6) Test mechanics and get crazy
Of course, Kevin could also use some help testing the changes he makes to the game:
I’m seeking testers to confirm and improve online efficiency and interoperability. All are welcome. Testing dates are up in the air, so whenever one or more people want to test multiplayer let’s set a date and time and I’ll forward the port and run my server. In-game text chat works, as does movement, looting and combat. The new arch plan stuff hasn’t been tested with other players, but should work fine since it’s based on existing systems (needs testing).
