    No readme or install file is unusual. Did you sign up for the beta program shown in the link in your OP ? How/from where, did you download the tarball ? The site just asked me for a beta key to download, so I can't do any checking of the file itself.

    I signed up for the beta.

    Just downloaded it from the site after installing a beta key.

    Re: Tar File

    Maybe it's not a directory...
    Code:
    file StrifeClientLinux64-0.0.1.12
    If it's an executable:
    Code:
    ./StrifeClientLinux64-0.0.1.12

    Just drag the executable file to the terminal. Don't bother with trying to manually navigate the terminal and type the correct filename. Drag the file to the terminal and hit Enter to run it.

    Just drag the executable file to the terminal.

    When I drag the bin folder, I get this message:

    sef@sef-laptop:~$ /home/sef/Downloads/StrifeClient/bin
    bash: /home/sef/Downloads/StrifeClient/bin: Is a directory
    sef@sef-laptop:~$

    Now for unpacking the tar file.
    You have already unpacked the tar file (it is the same thing as "extracting the package" - which you did in Post #1)

    The first two (StrifeClient) are highlighted in light blue, while the third one (StrifeClient) is highlighted
    • the first entry ('StrifeClient') is the directory that you created
    • the second entry ('StrifeClientLinux64-0.0.1.12') is the top-level directory of the (unpacked) tar archive
    • the third entry is the original gzipped tar file


    Now you probably need to change to the StrifeClientLinux64-0.0.1.12 directory and see what's inside there - hopefully some instructions like a README or INSTALL file that will tell you how to proceed

    Code:
    cd StrifeClientLinux64-0.0.1.12
    
    ls

    That is the problem. I cannot find a read / install me file.

    Below is what ls gives:


    sef@sef-laptop:~/Downloads/StrifeClient$ ls
    base ca-bundle.crt icon.png license.txt strife.version updater
    bin game libraries.txt strife.manifest tos.txt

    Re: Tar File

    There appear to be some instructions in this recent reddit discussion

    http://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming..._linux_client/

    In particular

    go to the ~/StrifeClient/bin
    start either strife or updater

    I got such an error when I was trying to install 32-bit (unknowingly) Seamonkey on my 64-bit 13.10.
