Salvation Prophecy is a space epic. Four warring factions battle over control of the known galaxy. Space stations and planet colonies endure constant assault. You begin your journey as a soldier recruit. Through intense planet and space battle, your combat skills will be put to a grim test. Success is rewarded with powerful skills, combat gear, and ship upgrades, and you may rise in rank to become commander of your faction. Lurking in the dark recesses of the universe is a threat foreseen by an apocalyptic prophecy. A danger far greater than mankind's endless battles. The pursuit of the prophecy leads through distant alien worlds with deadly creatures and untold secrets. A chance for redemption, if only we find our way through that dark hour.

Nice game so far, but 2 missions in and I've already found a game affecting bug that caused me to have to force shut-down the game. I was in my ship for the first time, went through the initial tutorial moves and ramming the instructors ship, and then it told me to go to an asteroid to blow stuff up. I brought up the Menu, clicked Scanner, selected the Asteroid, and then hit the JUMP button -- I didn't click the Jump button on screen, I hit the jump button on the keyboard (which I have remapped to be the space bar). At that point I was in a wormhole, but I couldn't steer because the Scanner interface was still up. I could not close the scanner interface at all. Nothing I clicked or no key I hit would get it to go away, and at that point my mouse would not steer the ship. I had to load the last autosave, at which point my screen just stayed black so I had to alt-tab out and kill the process. Anyway, just an FYI. Regardless, good game so far.

Hiya pacerdawn -
Dang, sorry you ran into a bug. The game has generally been quite stable. I can see how this might happen though - the tutorial has a lot of one-off code to make sure you follow the instructions. I may have overlooked using the jump shortkey. Thanks for the bug report, I'll fix that up. The work-around is just to use the jump button as instructed by the tutorial. But for sure, it should work either way.

Yep, clicking the on-screen jump button was the solution. I wasn't sure if you were aware of the bug or not and just wanted to let you know!

While I can not spare the money for moment, the Linux release is definitely on my to buy list when I can. Just thought I would let your know that.

A huge thanks for the release, it's a real milestone, right in time when linux gaming is not a geeky thnkg anymore, but becoming a mainstream.

One Q though - is there any particular reason to link agains lcms 1? Original binary was using only lcms2 while desura's version is also linked with v1:
[ruff@mo release]$ ldd SalvationProphecy | grep lcms
liblcms2.so.2 => ./lib/liblcms2.so.2 (0xf564e000)
[ruff@mo release]$ cd ~/desura/common/salvation-prophecy/build/release/
[ruff@mo release]$ ldd SalvationProphecy | grep lcms
liblcms.so.1 => not found
liblcms2.so.2 => ./lib/liblcms2.so.2 (0xf567a000)
[ruff@mo release]$

Agreed on the linux movement, rufferson!
I'll check into the liblcms thing and get back to you. Thanks for the ldd output.

Hey rufferson,
I responded to this over on my support forums, so I don't clutter up the Desura comments section with a bunch of technical linux stuff. Here's the link: Salvationprophecy.com

Hmm, just noticed I replied to the wrong post here (to rufferson) --- his post is next. Whoops!

Looks like a shared lib is missing. I get this when trying to run on a 64 bit Linux.

./SalvationProphecy: error while loading shared libraries: libjasper.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

From ldd, that appears to be the only library missing.

Hiya Jones -
Sorry you ran into a problem, let's get it worked out.
A couple questions:
1. Did you install ia32-libs?
2. What distro?
We should be able to get a missing lib problem solved pretty quick, if you don't mind going through a bit of support with me. Once we figure it out, I'll be sure to update the installer for other users.

It's Gentoo 64bit. I've got multilib enabled. I just realized that I could try unmasking ~x86 for libjasper in /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords and rebuild. I tried it and it worked! (I really wish that was in the Gentoo 64bit FAQ). So looks like there's no need to include another shared lib for Gentoo after all.

Thanks.

Ahh cool, thanks for posting back with the solution. I'm glad everything is running smoothly! You're the first gentoo 64-bit Salvation Prophecy player I'm aware of. :)

I've played through the game once, and I have to say it really exceeded my expectations. Although the game suffers a bit from repetition, I feel like it's really got a good tempo; let me explain what I mean by tempo. There's always something to do, and you're (until near the end) always getting stronger in some way. The best way I could describe it is to draw comparisons to Pirates!. New mission types are introduced at a reasonable pace and keep the game interesting. Maybe you'll start out doing…
