      New Forum software & theme display issues   07/20/2017

      The latest forum update has caused some readability issues with our themes!  This was unexpected, so might take a little bit of time to fix, sorry about that. I think we've fixed the main ones though. We could have a bunch of new features too, I just need to look at those and see what we have enabled etc. More on that soon! If you spot any issues or things we need to tweak, please post them here:   a

  1. Psychonauts Patch - Linux and Mac Update

    I take it that there has been no progress on this in the past two years? I did try asking Double Fine support as well, but it's been 2.5 months since they promised to get back to me "as soon as possible".
  2. Patch notes - 1.01, 1.02, 1.03

    I'm glad to hear that. I haven't played the game (I'm still waiting for the Linux version), but in the gameplay videos I've seen that were presumably made before the fix, it bugged me how much that opening sounded like back when the FluidSynth software synthesized had a bug related to pitch bend https://sourceforge.net/p/fluidsynth/tickets/12/
  3. Choach Oleander doesn't display on beginning of basic braining

    Thanks for the correction. I don't know how I managed to misread the date on the file, but I'm glad it worked for you.
  4. Choach Oleander doesn't display on beginning of basic braining

    I'm not sure. The last announcement of an update that I could find in the Steam forum for the game was dated February 2013, but I found mentions of the projector bug after that, so surely there must have been some update after that? I'm not even sure who maintains the Linux port these days, but the latest patch I've found by Ryan Gordon was also dated May 7 2013. (If memory serves me, that patch did fix the projection bug in the Humble Bundle version for me back when I tried it.)
  5. Choach Oleander doesn't display on beginning of basic braining

    It doesn't work for me with the Humble Bundle version, which I assume is the same as the Humble Store one, but the Steam version works for me.
  6. One thing I didn't notice in this thread - I might just have missed it - is that after the successful kite experiment, Franklin thanks Hoagie for the help, and promises to name an invention after him someday. A hoagie is a kind of sandwich, and apparently the name Benjamin Franklin is sometimes associated with sandwiches, for some reason I haven't been able to find yet?
  7. Where does the backer download code go?

    It was for a while, but I guess it must have been some sort of miscommunication because it's back to the old version now. I'll re-download it and start over once it gets there officially, to make sure I'm using the final release version. In the meantime, I'm suffering from a bit of adventure game overload right now, which is something I never expected to say as a Linux user. Not just from the various Kickstarter projects, but also from things like Adventure Game Studio, ScummVM and DOSBox. I hardly know where to begin!
  8. Where does the backer download code go?

    I got mine, though I'm not entirely sure I needed it because it seems to simply point to my Broken Age page in my Humble Library. (I wish I had checked if the game had been updated there even before I used the link, but that's too late now.) I'm still waiting for it to download though, so I guess it's still possible I'm going to need the code that was in the mail. Read the instructions above! I did, but I don't have a Steam account so I just downloaded it from the Humble Library page where it seems I didn't need the code included in the email. Mind you, I don't know for sure that it includes Act 2 since I didn't get much farther than selecting Shay's breakfast cereal before I had to leave for work. But it was much larger than the previous version, so it seems likely. What I was trying to say was that it's possible that it's not actually necessary to wait for the email to arrive, but that I don't know for sure.

  10. Psychonauts Patch - Linux and Mac Update

    That would be great. Thanks! Of course, now that I've played through the game it will probably be quite a while before I do it again since there are so many other games in my "that looks interesting" pile that I haven't gotten to yet. Some of them are from the 80's, so I really should get around to them. Any year now. :-)
  11. Psychonauts Patch - Linux and Mac Update

    Other than the DVD version, I got the game from the Humble Double Fine Bundle (Brütal Legend, Costume Quest, Psychonauts and Stacking) if that's what you mean. The Linux version of Psychonauts was updated on May 7 2013, and the other games were updated on June 16 the same year. (The Windows version of Psychonauts is from June 5 2012. The other games don't appear updated at all, though I've found that the Humble Library page isn't always completely reliable about that. The Mac games were all updated on September 13 2013.)
  12. Psychonauts Patch - Linux and Mac Update

    As a follow up, I played through the Linux version, using the unofficial 0.8 patch. There were some occasional graphics glitches, but I attribute those to driver bugs because they usually coincided with somewhat alarming "[drm:radeon_cs_ioctl] *ERROR* Failed to parse relocation -12!" messages. There was also usually some strange noise when starting the game but that would go away pretty quickly and not return. And sometimes there seemed to be a brief pause before a piece of music would loop. But other than that, the game worked great for me.
  13. Soo, about that Loom sequel?

    That's funny, I thought I was the only one who thought - however briefly - of Loom when playing Broken Age:
  14. What happened at GDC 2015?

    This whole thing reminded me of Penn & Teller's suggestion for insensitivity training:
  15. Psychonauts Patch - Linux and Mac Update

    Are there any plans for getting the Linux version updated to 0.8? There's been a patch on Ryan Gordon's web site for over a year and a half, so I was slightly surprised to see that even the 2014 DVD release from The Adventure Company still had the Coach Oleander projector bug in the Linux version.
