How do you start the game on Linux?

I just tried on Arch, I can't find the "Launcher.love" that your site mentiones.
Starting the MoveOrDieDemo.love directly from the command line (love MoveOrDieDemo.love) gives me:

Code: Select all

sh: c:: command not found
Syntax error: Engine/TileEngine.lua:1278: '<name>' expected near 'goto'

Engine/CustomError.lua:145: in function 'handler'
main.lua:53: in function <main.lua:51>
[C]: at 0x7fe83d6cc460
[C]: in function 'require'
Engine/LevelLoader.lua:17: in main chunk
[C]: in function 'require'
Src/Modes/PartyMode.lua:74: in main chunk
[C]: in function 'require'
Engine/GameSetup.lua:159: in function 'init'
main.lua:38: in function 'load'
main.lua:136: in function <main.lua:124>
[C]: in function 'xpcall'
This sounds a lot like Archlinux isn't supported at the moment... I'll try again soon on Ubuntu.

Using Love 0.9.

P.S. I'm really looking forward to trying this. I love local multiplayer stuff!

Ah, the "launcher.love" part is a typo! Should be "Move Or Die.love". Thanks for pointing that out!

I haven't tested on other versions of Linux but, I do know it should work on Ubuntu.

The error seems to be a thing with the Lua version. I have a variable named "goto", and in some Lua version (not sure which) it's a built in thing. You can rename it goTo instead of goto and that should let you launch at least.

Sorry for the trouble! But thanks for the support!

It works for me, mostly. I get that message about 'c:' too, but it then still works. Do you not have your love built with luajit, but with lua 5.2 instead? Or maybe your luajit is in lua 5.2 compatibility mode?

The demo works for me on Arch Linux x86_64.

Sadly, my video card is not powerful enough to play it at a decent FPS.
Most likely due to the game using large textures which are downscaled.
My video card sucks at that.

Also, it's quite silly to zip .love archives.
They are already zip archives with the extension changed to .love.
There is no size reduction at all if you zip it.

Also the demo .love seems to contain LÖVE for mac and windows embedded within the love file.

this game actually looks more enjoyable than the other one. of course one's a puzzle-style game while the other is a versus so it's to be expected. will there be a team-versus for it as well?

Game works fine on my Ubuntu Distro. It's amazing how polished it feels - very well done! Love the juice.

Thanks guys!

I've been optimizing the game. Should be running faster now, and downsized a lot of textures. All that's left is finishing the AI and online play (and a bunch more content)
