work around :ssamtse : intro wont exit

Post by steve » Sun Apr 09, 2006 12:24

have a dual boot system with win98se and slak 10.2, and windows is only used
for games. Had got the ssamtfe linux to work some time ago but then stopped
working. Never got the ssamtse working. Was interested to have a go at some
games in linux so googled and found the installers on here.
So downloaded and ran them. The ssamtfe worked ok .

downloaded the

and ran it. seemed to install ok.
but when try to run it, do "new game" and it launches into the
intro blurb and then shows the final scene from tfe (ie pyramid) but the
giant just slides to the left, the beam from the saucer misses him and it
just sits there and never exits .

I have looked on the forum and found the cheat to exit tfe
but doesnt seem to work on tse .

fwiw, the messages printed out are ...

Code: Select all

STUB: load window icon in SeriousSam/MainWindow.cpp, line 153.
STUB: Need SDL invisible window or something in SeriousSam/MainWindow.cpp, line 356.
Xlib:  extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".
STUB: Move this to another directory. in Engine/Graphics/ViewPort.cpp, line 189.
STUB: Move this to another directory. in Engine/Graphics/ViewPort.cpp, line 189.
Xlib:  extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".
STUB:  in SeriousSam/MainWindow.cpp, line 163.
STUB: reload ourself? in SeriousSam/SeriousSam.cpp, line 1633.
STUB: load teaser in SeriousSam/SeriousSam.cpp, line 1646.

It looks as tho other people have it running, so what am I doing wrong ?

Thanks for any help,

Thanks for the response ron,

the system spec is
athlon 1800
1GB ram
ati 9600 256MB video card
slakware 10.2
linux 2.4.31

I dont think that is the problem as ssamtfe works ok on linux.

I have just figured out a for fix this ... have copied the ssam
second encounter saved games I have on my win98se dos
partition, into the linux partition dir where I could save the
intro sequence which is in


and that allows me to get on with the game and skip the intro.

A bodge , but I can play now.

Thanks for taking the time to respond,
