Bored? Go Postal!
Most common users are bored and play games. I decidet to buy Postal 2 Fudge pack. Since its native to Linux and your able to do what ever you like to do. To be honest its a kick in the but to find out how to get the game working. After a few error fixes and some searching. I noticed that it was missing some files. Its all on the DVD’s so no worries to download!
Enough talking lets get started!
Step one: mounting/Installing
I always make at first run a backup of my CD or DVD. So i run the game/installer from an “ISO9660” file. In this case I asume you put it in the 1st CD-ROM/DVD Drive.
1. Open Root Terminal > “cd /media/cdrom”
2. Execute the installer > “sh linux_installer.sh”
3. Follow the GUI what ever you wish to install. (In my example I will only install Postal2!)
Step Two: Fixing the .ini files!
The postal2 installer does not extract the proper .ini files. And when trying to start it from terminal with command “postal2” will say “Missing Ini”. Were about to fix this right now!
Perform following commands:
# cd /usr/local/games/postal2game/System
# wget http://www.zerodev.net/DefUser.ini
# wget http://www.zerodev.net/Default.ini
Now type in terminal “postal2” and it should run!
Don’t be too exidet yet!
