Issues unresolved[edit]

Fullscreen on Linux[edit]

Using fullscreen on Linux causes the keyboard to be ignored, unless playing the game in Chrome.[1]

Issues fixed[edit]

OS X version won't run[edit]

Some users have reported that the OS X version won't run, often resulting in an error message saying the file is "Damaged" or similar.[1]
Disable gatekeeper[2][3]
  1. Click the Apple icon and select System Preferences,
  2. Open Security and Privacy and click the General tab.
  3. Click the lock (to make changes) then check Allow under Allow applications downloaded from:
  4. When prompted select Allow From Anywhere.
  5. Right-click on the application and select Open.

Linux version will not start on 64-bit systems[edit]

Some users reported the Linux version will not start on 64 bit operating systems. Often resulting in either a 'NULL pointer' error or 'error while loading shared libraries'.
Install 32 bit libraries[4][5]
  1. These errors are due to a 64-bit system not having the 32-bit libraries installed by default.
  2. If the error is a 'NULL pointer' error, install the library 'libcurl3:i386' using your package manager.
  3. If the error is 'error while loading shared libraries', find out which package the necessary library is part of and install the i386 version of that package.
