Download the client from here:

Create an account and simply join one of the open games.

hm, copy & paste doesn't work? That sucks. Why doesn't it work? Which OS ?

The activation key is only for activation (clicking that link). The player key that you get after activation is what you need. And your player ID of course (something like 7 or 11 - a simple number). What is your player ID? Then I could simply give you a more simple key.

I've now posted to reddit to get some more testers:

https://www.reddit.com/r/betatests/comments/4js7i2/opportunity_turnbased_coop_survival_game_a_bit/


If you want, you can comment there and tell others a word or two about the game so far.

I wouldn't mind helping, but I only have a chomebook for daily actions. I have a linux machine, but I don't boot it up every day :D Is it possible to install using Chrome, or how do I do it!

I have no experience with Chromebooks, so I honestly don't know. The game client is a standalone program, so it needs to be installed locally. If your machine doesn't allow that, it probably won't work. I could compile an Android version if that helps anyone, but I can't guarantee that touch input works.

I'm happy to give feedback, but I am running into some issues.

Step by step:

1) Downloaded Build 16 of Linux version
2) Extracted to Desktop
3) Clicked on the Schwarzwald.x86.  Nothing Happened.  Used the run option, nothing.  No Error message.

System Info:  Ubuntu 16.04 LTS x86_64 (4.4.0-22 Kernel)

Possible Problem being that I'm running a 64 bit OS and the client is coded for 32 bit?

It's possible. I don't have any Linux desktop systems anymore, so sadly I can't test (same with Windows). I just thought in general the 64 bit systems can run 32 bit software?

For the most part, I understand that they can run, but if a dependent driver isn't there (because it's no longer supported for 64 bit or hasn't been installed to specifically cover it) then it won't run.

I did some research and it looks like there have been some problems if you aren't using the proprietary graphics driver for AMD/ATI graphics cards.  With the start of Ubuntu 16.04, this driver is no longer available for use (compatibility issue) and a revamped open source driver was developed with AMD/ATI.  Works great, but could be the snag behind this as well.

If I find new information, I'll report it.

I'll compile the next build in 64 bit. I don't think we have many 32 bit systems around anymore.
