Sadly, I have a problem with the game :(
It does not seem to respond to any mouse or keyboard input after I start it. Thus I cannot even get past the starting screen. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

laptop > make sure it's running in High performance mode

windows vista/7/8 > run as administrator

mouse > is it logitech?

Is there any chance for this to get redone at some point with voice acting added like Nancy/The Perfidious Petrol Station did?

Unfortunately not, the only viable route would be a complete remake. I'll put the idea forward to R. Michalski perhaps it could happen in the future :)

As with The Cat Lady, any chance of getting an officially packaged Linux version?
While I did not try this game (only The Cat Lady), but it probably should work with the community-updated open sourced AGS version: Github.com

Hi there. It's not really an area I understand. If it's possible to get CL to work on Linux wouldn't it be similarly possible to do it with Downfall? (following similar instructions to these Lgdb.org ?)

DrMcCoy Nov 5 2013, 9:13pm replied:

Yes, that's exactly what I mean. I haven't tried it, because I don't have Downfall (and I didn't have much time lately), but I do expect it to work just like Cat Lady does.

And just to clarify a bit where this is coming from (since your first comments seemed a bit confused):

Chris Jones, after lots of protestation, finally began open sourcing the editor and engine code 3 years ago (kudos to him). People in the AGS community started cleaning up the code and making it run on Linux (there's been some problems on the Mac OS X front thanks to Allegro from what I've read, unfortunately).

Thanks to those efforts, The Cat Lady automatically works on Linux. Just point AGS to the Windows EXE containing the game archive. The only problem I've found so far is that, while it runs great on my desktop system, it's too slow on my older laptop, because AGS only does software scaling on Linux. Or at least it did a few months ago, no idea if that's already been changed/fixed.

So from what I understand, you would "only" need to repackage The Cat Lady and Downfall for Linux and test if everything works. Just drop in AGS compiled for Linux (32- and 64-bit), add precompiled libraries (like Allegro), and write a short wrapper script that looks if the system is 32-bit or 64-bit and starts the appropriate binary with the AGS archive (or hell, even the full old EXE) as a parameter. And then package it as a more Linux friendly tar.gz/tar.bz2/tar.xz/zip or whatever, BAM, finished, theoretically.

Would be very nice seeing a penguin here and on Steam for both games. :)

And while I can't speak for the AGS community or the subset working on the open source'd engine code, I'm sure they are happy to help should something be broken for either The Cat Lady or Downfall on Linux. :)

Does anybody know the difference between version 1.4 and 2.0? And will there be a patch that solves the issue in 2.0?

Thanks in advance

Hello! 2.0 breaks more than it fixes, plus various bits of it are censored because it was created for the German market. So 2.0 is basically the "German market" version whereas 1.4 is the uncensored, less broken, better version (in our opinion).

Out of curiosity, what was censored there? My Gamers Gate version seems to be similar to 1.4 version - plus new font (same as in The Cat Lady), minus double shotgun bug, minus surrender ending...

Nothing as drastic as in I have no mouth and I must scream then... If they were as strict as in the later case, certain character would have to be cut out of the game :)

@SkylerBarwell Thanks! Has been 1 or 2 other mentions of similar 'strange occurrences' involving ESC key so will make this a priority. rgds!

@SkylerBarwell @Screen7uk @JEBWrench U may be right about an earlier press of ESC causing it. A mysterious issue we will try to solve. sorry

Apr 25 2015, 4:17pm

@SkylerBarwell @JEBWrench Hm have you tried pressing ESC once & trying again or press ESC twice. may be due to an earlier cutscene command
