Instructions for playing LoC on *nix platforms
 
First of all, RPGMaker’s default *nix package supports only x64 versions of operating systems. If this is not your case skip directly to “If all else fails” section – there is a way to circumvent this problem.

To launch League of Corruption on x64 OS follow these easy steps which can be done in both GUI and terminal environments. Both preparations must be done only once per version. Let’s start with graphical way:

· Download and unpack the *nix version of LoC.

· Navigate to the unpacked folder and access properties of Game file.

· Open the permissions tab, take ownership and allow execution.

· Double-click on the Game file. Enjoy!

Launching game via terminal:

· Download and unpack the *nix version of LoC.

· Navigate to the unpacked folder and type in chmod +x Game.

· Type in ./Game or double-click on the Game file in the GUI. Enjoy!

If all else fails

Alright, there are two ways to handle the problem: the “right” one and the “quick & dirty” one. The correct way to execute unsupported applications is through compatibility layers: either wine and Windows version or bridge for x64 <-> x86. This is definitely an advanced topic. I don’t recommend trying this if you are not sure what you are doing but if you do – you don’t need me to tell you what’s what.

The quick and dirty way is simple and somewhat universal for all platforms:

· Download and unpack the *nix version of LoC.

· Navigate to the unpacked folder and get inside the www directory.

· Check your volume levels and take off your headphones. Some OS and browsers ignore my default 20% sound level and will pump it up all the way to 100%. The title menu has a background music so be careful.

· Open index.html in Firefox or Chrome and play in the browser itself.

Still doesn’t run? Update your DirectX package and graphics card drivers, also make sure it supports OpenGL and WebGL. If the problem persists, try another browser – I used Firefox for the majority of the testing.

The control scheme stays the same – you can use arrows or mouse. All the plugins work, including the journal and saving extension. There are problems with sound, it either lags behind or takes some time to load up before playing correctly. Otherwise, it’s about the same as the “proper” launch but may be slower.

Please understand that this is a “best effort” option and not a valid fully-supported way to play the game. There is no way I can test, debug and fix Loc for all browsers and all their versions. Sometimes they just don’t work. For example, Vivaldi refused to load the main menu.

I’ve contacted RPGMaker’s support about this issue and after 9 days of silence finally got a message that my question was forwarded to the developers. Don’t expect much from it though – if it was that easy to make a dual *nix deployment package they would have done so earlier. Anyways, if something comes up I’ll update the instructions and make a news post about it.
