L.G.C. EP11 — Open Beats of Rage How-To

“Beats of Rage is a freeware open source video game and moddable game engine made by Senile Team and inspired by Sega’s classic Streets of Rage series. The term “moddable” means that the program allows users to create their own content, and thus their own beat-’em-up game, which is then called a “mod”.”

On the eleventh installment of L.G.C. we provide a quick/dirty how-to on installing OpenBOR under Linux.

  1. The only thing keeping me away from this game is the fact that I have to register to be able to download it :(
    So I play Paintown :)

    Thanks for the video

  2. I’m still getting “./OpenBOR: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_gfx.so.13: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”
    Even though I have installed libsdl-gfx1.2-4

    I’m on Ubuntu 10.04 64bit.
    Maybe this only works on 32bit systems?

  3. *i’m trying this from my mobile.

    I have my trusty SUN U5 with a SABRE 440 64-bit CPU (13 years old). I run/ran Aurora Linux on it. This box would run HTTPD/SQL/IMAP in 32-bit userland. Why? Well, there is no need. 64BITARC has existed for some time mind you. If you run Linux and do not manage a LAMP stack… RUN 32-bit! Yeah. is that 6% performance hit worth not being able to play the game? No.

  4. Never heard of this “openBOR” before but will definitely check it out.  You sound like the host of a scary radio show.
