Question Game and Compilation


Hi all,

I saw a game which name is Return to Castle Wolfeinstein

Wolfeinstein

I'm currently using a MDK 9.1 Distro and i dont understand the way to install it.
Name of the file is et-linux-2.55.x86.run ....

I thought it was a script so i've decided to run
./et-linux-2.55.x86.run in a console but nothing happens.

Any idea ?

Did you make it executable first?

chmod 755 et-linux-2.55.x86.run
