The release is known to work on the following platforms:
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 64 bit (official)
- Ubuntu 12.10, 64 bit(tested)
- Arch Linux, 64 bit (reported)
Other versions of Linux may work as long as they are binary compatible with the exact setup Ubuntu 12.04 LTS uses.
First, you need to install the following dependencies from the package manager first. You can do so by typing this in a terminal:
sudo apt-get install libois-1.3.0 libtbb2 libfreeimage3 libzzip-0-13
Other dependencies of the code are packaged up with the package below.
You'll need at least two downloads above to get the game running, The AI Sandbox™ binaries, and the Capture The Flag game with server. Extract both folders as you see fit, and execute simulate.py from the console in the CTF folder. This will ask you to configure the directory of the AI Sandbox, in one of four ways.
To execute the Capture The Flag game, you'll need to run the simulate.py script. This will prompt you to specify the AI Sandbox™ installation directory in a number of different ways.
After this, the OpenGL window of the game should show up at 1280x720 resolution. See #/config/demos.cfg for the graphical configuration. To debug other graphical problems, see #/output/graphics.log for details.
April 30th: As of today, there are no crashes known. Certain graphics drivers cause problems mostly out of our control, use the --console parameter to execute the simulation headless. Software drivers, built-in Intel graphics, and virtual machine emulators all perform as expected.
