So, I'm trying to get Loki Game's Alpha Centauri planetary pack to work.. I installed it (which went well), patched the game (not quite so well), and make this shell script to start it. The script does this:
* Compiz made it like 90% transparent, so it becomes disabled (along with awn and emerald [metacity takes over])
* It wants to operate in 1024x768, so I used xrandr
* It only works with oss /dev/dsp, so I enabled /dev/dsp* in pulseaudio and symlinked my headphone dsp1 to dsp.
(smacpack is the app)
Problem is, the sound is all crackly. Like, it sounds like my speakers are blown out (they work just fine with everything else). Any ideas?
metacity --replace &
xrandr -s 1024x768
gksudo rm /dev/dsp && ln -s /dev/dsp1 /dev/dsp
xrandr -s 1280x1024
compiz --replace &
emerald --replace &
