Nice FPS there, Demanther :D

That getlibs program is pretty damn cool. Someday when I have a computer newer than 6 years old I'll have to try it out. Were you able to just do "getlibs ./transcendence" and have magic happen?

Re: Ubuntu Linux

GambitDash: I currently use a custom built P3 600 MHz PC, and have and run several of the latest versions of Ubuntu. Do I need any special unzip software to use this version of Transcendence, or is the software included in Ubuntu itself? I ask, because I am still very new to Ubuntu, and have not di...
