Welcome to SSC Carlino

Its been a while since I have used linux to play games. But I guess the first question would be which version of Linux are you using. More linux distros today support windows-like installations and if you use Steam it should install for you.

But if your downloading packages or source you may need to consult the games website/forum for this. What game are you trying to install?

You can use wine emulation on many popular distros, It may not always work but It is the easiest thing to do without recompiling things especially games that have not had their source code posted somewhere

Something odd about this thread:

A squid eating dough in a polyethylene bag is fast and bulbous! Got me?

The station passed through a highly focused aperture in the space time continuum and the energy from the singularity shifted the chroniton particles in our hull into a high state of temporal flux.

Or you just try turning it off and on again.

Greetings!

I know Frontier Elite 2 and Elite First Encounters for quite sometime now. I had Elite 2 on the Amiga back in 1994-95, but i wasn't able then to immerse in the world of the game, which i later discovered.. and it is a wonderful one! This Direct 3d work here is really great! I have seen some videos from time to time, but i thought it was under development. I didn't realize it was accessible. And all these guys that developed it, did a fantastic job! Now, a game with one of the greatest game-plays of all time, has modern graphics! Great job!

I have a little question: I downloaded from your very hospitable site the file "FFE-FE2_Movie_Replacements". Where do we extract its contents for them to be seen? I tried the FX folder, a Video/Videos new folder and finally put them to the root folder of the game. I also set "AlternativeFrontierVideos=1" in the ffed3daj.cfg file. It didn't work. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance and be well 🙂 .

Welcome to the forums Greekpiece.

Off hand I can't remember if the movies work in FFE3D as it been some time since I played it, maybe someone else will know.

Thank you! It's nice being here 🙂 !

Update: Found where to put the .avi files! We have to create a folder named Data, or to alter the ffed3daj.cfg file in the AVIPath=DATA line and replace Data with whatever we want. I should have thought of that.. 🙂 .

Anyway, thank you!
