How to use installer with GOG games?

Post by turtletoe » Wed Aug 15, 2018 21:15

How do you use the installer with GOG? I'm not sure how to do it and I haven't found any instructions that can help me.

Hi turtletoe

Our installers were never intended to be used with GOG games, that is maybe one reason there aren't any instructions :)
Is there a particular game you have in mind?

I'm specifically trying to install AvP and the Unreal games.

Have you tried: There are probably other scripts, tools or howtos you can find in the internet.

I have used Lutris but unfortunately it doesn't work for me: I can't launch AvP, the Unreal install crashes for some reason etc. I wish I knew what was wrong, I use Ubuntu 18.04.1 if you're curious. I've seen liflg installers being suggested on GOG forums, so I'm just hoping that I can make it work.

I've never used Lutris myself.
Have you reported the problems you have encountered to the project, did you ask for help?
Lutris seems to be a better fit than our old installers which are not indented to be used with the GOG version of the games.

You are welcome.
If you find a solution to get the GOG version of the games running,
it would be nice to know how, so others might profit from that knowledge.
