What works

Game is playable there was not detected any functionality which didn't work.

What does not

  • after launching, unlike the Windows version, you will be greeted by an additional message (Welcome to Movie Business 2), which you should click to go to the language selection. Note: I've received signals that sometimes this window can be transparent, so click somewhere in the middle
  • some Unicode characters don't display correctly (it related to stars and sex icons)
  • some operations takes a longer time (they are processed in different thread), which causes a message to appear that the program is not responding… you need to select �Wait� if dialog windows will pop-up (or just wait)
  • if you hear a sound when you try to click on the application window and the application does not respond, try moving the application window (perhaps there is an error message or information underneath) and it has been covered by the main program window


  • You start a new game in a party game in the Players tab you can modify the number, type and properties of players. To modify a player, all you need to do is Double-click with the left mouse button. Unfortunately, on Linux, it doesn't work the first time. Double-click right click to open the player edit window. NOTE: Next time, the LEFT KEY is already working.
  • During the game, the main menu of the game may disappear (be covered by the window bar) it is enough to move the mouse cursor over this area to reveal it
