Did anyone tried to install or compile the Catacombs serie, natively, through Reflection Keen, which include All the Keens and all of the Catacomb games (Catacomb 3D, Catacomb Abyss…etc) I already have all the Keens installed but realy would love to get the Catacomb games to work natively and not with DosBox.
Here is the source:
I tried compiling the source but it fail all the time.
Can anybody try to compile it and post back if its possible or not.
any luck? I would LOVE to be able to plat CA on my clockwork
For the moment, if you want to satisfy yourself, install zdoom (I posted a tutorial here on the forum ZDOOM on GS for Brutal Doom and other mods!) and use a Doom II mod.
Catacomb Abyss TC
But no, no luck, I hope someone with deeper knowledge of compiling on Linux will try…
i’m quite well versed in linux but already have several dozen projects on the go. so i cannot make any sort of promises, but I will download the source and see what if anything can be done.
Thanks man at least I will know if it work or not in a more definitive way.
I installed them “sudo apt-get install -y libspeex-dev libspeexdsp-dev”
and then the compile went without issue
steps I took (all on my clockwork, NOTE IT MUST HAVE INTERNET TO PERFORM THIS)
download source – refkeen-release-20170401.tar.gz
extract – “tar -xvf refkeen-release-20170401.tar.gz”
move to source directory – “cd refkeen-source-20170401\src”
build the source – “make”
and here’s the “hard” part… theres NO install scripting in the makefile. so you need to manually put the executables where you need them. I did this
“sudo mv reflection-* /usr/local/bin/”
all built. – I DID NOT test them yet.and you still need to make the “launcher scripts” which i did not cover at all.
Cool! Yeah I can continue from here no issue. The compiling part was problematic for me but creating the launcher and sorting the files out is not a problem. Thanks again m8 I will try this tonight and report back!
I think the main issue will be Input Binding.
I managed to launch Catacomb Abyss but the launch menu require me to bind the controls but always state N/A.
I was curious so I installed the Windows version to try and its the same issue. When I try to bind a key in the settings it always say N/A. Furthermore, it seems like it does not even use the .ini file…
In game, at first you have to select Novice or Warrior, and for that, we need to bind a button to N or W…
So it works well but as long as we can’t bind, we are lost.
So I tried to recompile a newer version of Reflection Keen. Most of the Catacomb games work with the exception of Catacomb Abyss, but, there is a lot of screen flickering on my side so its almost unplayable…
I will stick with DosBox SVN for now.
