ALPHAFUNDING +FAILED+ | TEAM GOT DISPERSED In order to continue development, we have to put a new team together, and fund the game through alternative source of funding. That will take some time. This project has not been abandoned. Unless information comes from the official source, please disregard online rumors. Indie game dev is a very tough business and the year 2013 is even tougher due to many new indie studios funded by former AAA developers. Competition for human resources and funding is fierce. People who believed it the game and ordered alpha - huge thank you, you will never be forgotten and when the game is resurrected, we will make it up to you, somehow. Thank you for understanding.

Seeing no feedback for the new features we implemented I figured Desura client doesn't ping owners of the game that there was an update. Therefore I made a screencast about new features including spellcrafting and new menu. We hope you will appreciate these features and will make some cool let's play style videos of you and your buddies chopping up skelies together online and growing your magical powers :)

Download the patch from e-Shoppe (login > My Account > Download links or something like that) If you have the original alpha installed, and all previous patches installed, you simply untar 0.08a to the game's folder and enjoy (on Windows prerequisites are the same, except that you run 0.08a installer and it will do the job).

Thanks! Unfortunately this version seems to need GLIBC_2.15.

Any idea which package in need to install for Ubuntu 32bit?

You need to upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 and all your problems will be solved :)

The source code is there, simply compile it and you will have the game running. That's a downside of being on Linux - no consistency between distros.

Unzip, go into the engine_source/ type "make sdl-release", once it's done, type "make sv-release" (no "" in both cases). You will have darkplaces-sdl and darkplaces-dedicated binaries. Rename them into tomesofmephistopheles or tomesofmephistopheles64 (depending on what your OS is) and tomesofmephistopheles-dedicated or tomesofmephistopheles64-dedicated accordingly. Copy and replace original binaries with the ones from engine_source/ folder and enjoy :)

or just compile your linux release with a _reasonable_ glibc version...

That's Linux for you, sorry :) Windows version runs on XP/Vista/7 no matter what.

I have Ubuntu 12.04 64bit on my work station and I installed Ubuntu 12.04 32bit on my kid's PC just to supply both 32/64 bit binaries. I physically can't have different glibc installed and I linking it statically is not recommended by the engine's devs.

Eventually, most Linux users will migrate to the newer glibc, so why not to do it now? :)
