    Devastation is an old FPS ported by Icculus, never heard of it until last weekend. I might record another video, for some reason Youtube didn’t publish the [email protected] version. I later realised the game could be played at 1920×1080 by editing a text, if I record another video it will be FHD.

    Quick chairquisition:

    MWTW: the game crashes quite often (this is a beta, the game was never officially released on Linux): 2 chairs
    Shinies: UE2 game, I’d say it looks just as good as Postal 2 (so not very good): 2 chairs
    Controls: You often get stuck by random stuff on the ground or NPCs, other than that it’s fine: 3 chairs
    FUN: It reminded me of Postal 2 and Shadow Warrior while not being nearly as fun as any of them: 2 chairs

    Makes me want to go back and play Half-Life 2, which was about the same vintage and super amazing by comparison.
    I will have to say that a lot of these old FPS games have great longevity. I’ve been hacking away at System Shock 2 lately, and with updated character models, I think the game would still be relevant today.

    Let’s search for missing file then.

    2 hours later: IT’S NOWHERE :o

    How did you managed to run it?

    Ran out of the box for me. Where did you find your copy of the game? How did you install it?

    (Also, check your PMs)

    Installed via Wine and copied files extracted from Loki’s installer

    I think that’s the problem. I don’t remember doing that and I think the Loki installer is able to install the game with the CD and without having to install it in Wine before.

    I’ll try the thing you sent me via PM.

    Let you know tomorrow, maybe :)
