Installing Serious Sam The First Encoter without CD

Post by psycho9619 » Wed May 30, 2018 0:48

Is there any possibility to install this great game if I don't have disc but can download files of game from Steam or something similar. And if it possible, how to make it work. :?:
P.S.: sorry for my English, it is not my native language.

Game doesn't start. I run ssamtfe through console and got this message. I newbie in Linux and don't understand how to fix it.

STUB: load window icon in SeriousSam/MainWindow.cpp, line 153.
STUB: Need SDL invisible window or something in SeriousSam/MainWindow.cpp, line 356.

Press ENTER to exit...

I use Ubuntu 16.04 if this matter.

One other thing I just remembered: Croteam released the source code.
So it probably easier to use this as a base instead of the old binaries from our installer.

Thanks for the help. I installed 32-bit version of Ubuntu 18.04 and used this manual: https://www.gog.com/forum/serious_sam_s ... ller_howto. All works pretty fine except that the motions are bit faster compare to Windows version, but this is not every time. Also i have question: sound works but music (for example in credits) doesn't. Is there any fix for that?

Sounds good. Sorry I have no idea about the music.
I would suggest to build your own binaries from the source code release or one of its forks.
