HowTo / Notes

"File not found" not on 32 Bit Ubuntu.
After I got it running on the 64 Bit Ubuntu Linux, I copied everything to a 32 Bit Ubuntu 10.04 computer. But it showed the same error as before the workaround for the 64 Bit version. So I reverted the workaround and then it worked! Note: use winetricks to install missing "msvcp80.dll"!
Doesn't start by default ("File Not Found..."). Workaround:

1. create script to start in main directory:

# Change working directory to current directory:
DIRECTORY=$(cd `dirname $0` && pwd) 
# Start DeBlob.exe with parameter 'EN':
env WINEPREFIX="/$HOME/.wine" wine DeBlob.exe EN 

2. If "template/Credits_EN/Info not found" error occurs:

Move the 3 template definitions from file "Assets/Menus/CreditsMenu_EN.overlay" to new file "Assets/Menus/00_CreditsMenu_EN.overlay". This workaround with the new file is due to the bad style of Ogre to ensure resource dependency with file names. Other systems = other file name order => missing/wrong dependencies.
