Order of the Thorne : The King's Challenge / Soundtrack release?

Do you plan to release the soundtrack sometime soon? I guess backers will get it at that time as well?

For Alt+Tab grabbing workaround on Linux, see:

See the further discussion in the GOG thread and GitHub issue for mode details.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Underworld Ascendant

An interesting project by creators of the original Ulitma Underworld:

They are still short of their base goal. But they promised to include Linux release in it, so I backed them already :) And it's going to be DRM-free. If you like it - spread the word, I hope they'll reach some stretch goals too!

Quest for Infamy / How to avoid keyboard capture in AGS on Linux?
« on: October 21, 2014, 10:03:16 PM »
I'm playing Quest for Infamy on Linux. Doing it in fullscreen mode captures all keyboard events, so I can't switch out of the application with Alt+Tab, and even virtual desktop switching doesn't work. Switching to tty works, so one can minimize the game or switch virtual desktops from there using wmctrl, but that's a rather crude workaround. Are there easier ways to prevent full keyboard capturing or just easier switching out from the application?


I recently bought Quest for Infamy from GOG, and trying to run the Linux version on current Debian testing (x86_64). The game keeps crashing with segfault after choosing "Prelude" or "Start" in the first menu.

Here is the tail of the AGS output:

Code: [Select]
AGS: Room change requested to room 315
AGS: Unloading room 309
AGS: Loading room 315
AGS: Room change requested to room 302
AGS: Unloading room 315
AGS: Loading room 302
AGS: Room change requested to room 340
AGS: Unloading room 302
AGS: Loading room 340

Shutting down Allegro due to signal #11

And here is the game run with gdb:

Code: [Select]
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

What can be the problem and how can I help debugging it?
