Yo! Running ubuntu 8.04 here and I just installed egoboo via the apt-get.

I can't seem to find configurationfiles to change keymaps etc. Where is it located?

And can you run egoboo in "windowed" mode instead of fullscreen? Gotta hide it here at work Wink

Sounds like you are running Egoboo 2.22 right? Edit setup.txt to modify all video and sound settings. You can enable window mode there.

controls.txt edits the keymap for the game.

Why do you use 2.2.2? I mean, there is 2.6.3b in Linux, too, right?

The latest stable version should work too. It has ingame video and sound setup (Although the controls still need to be done in the txt).

I am not entierly sure where they were located under a linux system, but I remember someone mentioning it here on the forums. It should be added to the FAQ.

You can either wait for Penguinflyer logs on (our linux man) or try to locate the topic under the "help" section (may take time).

Yea but I saw no info about how to make the game from downloading it, readme file just directed me to the FAQ manuel .pdf and nothing in there so I used apt-get instead.

Getting 2.6.3b data file from homepage now.

The source code package includes a README.Linux file. It lists everything you have to do.

There aren't really any mods out for Egoboo yet. Confused
However, once you feel that you're being good at Egoboo and know the game well, you could download yourself some new items that aren't in the game (yet). Just look around in the forums a little, especially under "development". You should always be able to find some nice stuff there. Smile

Oh, and in case I didn't say it already, welcome to the forums. Have fun around here. Smile

Hello!
Have fun... Uh, playing the game, and... not getting caught at work? Confused

Have a cookie, 'cause you never know what AoD might have done to his: Cookie!
Very Happy

Anyhow, while there are no mods, exactly, there are plenty of unfinished monsters, items, and even character classes. You can get a bunch of them by downloading the Development Pack on the website.

The Egoboo setup.txt and controls.txt are under your ~/.egoboo/ folder.
