Arrow Need Beta Testers for Tennis Games just ported to Linux !


Hello,

I'm the author of the tennis games "Tennis Elbow 2013" and "Tennis Elbow Manager", available so far on Windows & Mac OSX. I just ported them to Linux, and I'd be glad if some Linux users could tell me if they work correctly on their setup.

TE2013 Demo : http://www.managames.com/download.ph...Linux_BetaL.gz
TeManager Demo : http://www.managames.com/download.ph...Linux_BetaL.gz

In TE2013, you play tennis, and in TeManager, you're a tennis coach managing your player(s).

Please report any glitch, bug or crash you may experience. Post the System.log from the game folder if possible.
It's working with Ubuntu 12.04, so I guess it should work with other Fedora distribs and hopefully most of other popular Linux distribs ; don't hesitate to report if it's working well on your distrib..!

So far, I noticed these 2 bugs :
- sound is very delayed, about half a second
- mouse doesn't work in fullscreen

I hope that both are because I'm running Ubuntu within VmWare.

Right now, it's still missing the config tool to select your language ; I already created it but still didn't put it in the package.

Thanks in advance for any report !

PS: if you buy the game, just copy your Key.txt into your game folder (I still didn't create the email template for Linux Key ).

More Info & screenshots about the games here : http://www.managames.com/tennis

yooy,
yup, it turned out I should package some extra libs with the games ; I'll do it hopefully within a couple of days.
Meanwhile you can find them here : http://www.libsdl.org/download-1.2.php ; direct link => http://www.libsdl.org/release/SDL-1.2.15-1.i386.rpm

Note: unfortunately, there's no multiplayer support for Linux for now (except on the same PC with several controllers)

I just updated the Betas : the games were requiring you to have installed SDL and all its dependencies to work ; now, all the required Libs are loaded from the subfolder "SdlLib" , or at least hopefully so ; I successfully tested on a naked Ubuntu 12.04, but maybe other distrib will miss some libs ; thanks to let me know if it's the case on your Linux.

I updated the packages again, added a couple of libs, and now the games auto-detect the language on 1st start, and let you change the language from the "Misc Options" menu.
Website has been updated as well, so these are Release Candidates, hopefully working well...
