Fortuitously, all of those packages came with my ubuntu install.
Setting up. . .
Okay, so, question:
Can you think of any particular reason the gearhead executable (as opposed to gearhead-2D) generates a black screen which persists until the user performs input, which causes a CrashToDesktop?
gearhead-2d works fine so far, thanks :]
A query - one version of gearhead2 I was using back on windows had an isometric viewpoint which always aimed to be "over the shoulder" of the player avatar. That is, what was in view was always what was in front of you. Currently, the viewpoint remains fixed, and I was wondering if there's a way to set the camera to follow the avatar's orientation currently?
