Well that's cool. Definitely glad to see this title with a native port.

However I've got the game over via GamersGate a long time ago.
How should I go about getting the Linux version then?

Linux needs a demo, you really want to know if the game runs without fuss BEFORE you pay 15 euro for it...

Hiya AlveKatt -
In case Desura doesn't provide refunds for a non-functioning game, I will personally if Salvation Prophecy doesn't work out-of-the-box, or we can't work through a solution together in a reasonable amount of time (provided you've got the minimum requirements).

It's still a matter of buying blind. Linux users don't want to buy anything without knowing they will like what they get any more than Windows users do.

Awesome Game :)

It didn't really like my dual monitor, it mirrored it and changed the resolution of the first one.
But disabling the second monitor and then starting the game worked perfectly :)
(Ubuntu 12.04)

Dang, I spent a lot of time trying to make the game behave properly with dual monitors. I tested on both nvidia and amd cards under ubuntu 12.04. I wonder what's different about your setup than mine?

It works well now, don't know if it was the initial monitor setting that was lower then my native or something
