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.

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. :)

Hi!
I just bought the game on 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04 using Desurium.
When I try to run a game, I got following error:
Imageshack.us
the path to game executable is:
/home/makson/.desura/ games/salvation-prophecy/build/release /SalvationProphecy

(need to add spaces because desura do not accept to long words)

If I double click executable, the game works fine. Great game, by the way. Marked as 10/10.

Same issue here, 32 bit Ubuntu 13.10. The game works just fine outside of Desura.

Thanks makson96! This issue (and the solution) has already been reported in the support forums on the Salvation Prophecy website, but great to have it here as well. I'm actively working on getting this fixed asap.
Appreciate the vote. It's great to see the game out there in linux land. :)

Great! I will try it out today.

One can see that you put a lot of heart in the game and it is very enjoyable.
The buying of your game get even higher priority to me then new Humble Bundle.

I hope that you will be able to continue game developing, this time with higher budget.

Best regards,

Wow, I beat the HiB! That's super cool. :)

I'm really glad you're enjoying the game. Thanks for dropping by to say so. For sure, games like Salvation Prophecy would benefit greatly from having a much larger budget and team than I had. But us little scrappy indies gotta start somewhere. ;)

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…
