A quick question about versions, and a bug on Ubuntu (possible bitcoin bounty!)

Hi! First off, I’d like to mention this is my first post here! And I love this game, it’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a game!

So, when I download the stable version from the en.cataclysm site, the ASCII is sharper and the game runs much smoother. When I try to pull the latest version off of Github (clever raven) though, it’s more “squishy” looking (I think this is curses? I’m not super technical) and it runs much slower. And instead of it opening up a new window when I type “./catalcysm” in the terminal, it runs in the same terminal.

So my question is, can I get the latest version from Github, can I get all the latest updates but also have the sharper, smoother-running version that opens in a new window when I run it in the terminal?

Also, I keep encountering a very annoying bug, and I wanted to check here before posting it as an issue on the github. I believe it’s only on Ubuntu (didn’t experience it on my windows computer). After some time of playing (usually 5-8 in-game days) I’ll discover some map areas (as in, a house, or a section of street, a metal wreck, etc.) where any time I try to walk on them, the game crashes. I’ve tried teleporting onto them, changing them using the in-game map editor, etc. And I always get this message “terminate called after throwing an instance of ‘std::bad_alloc’” in the terminal. This problem is in the latest stable Ubuntu version from the en.cataclysm site.

If this problem hasn’t already been solved, I’m willing to toss €10 in bitcoins to whoever fixes the issue! :slight_smile:

You need to download the tiles version. I think this one should do the trick: http://dev.narc.ro/cataclysm/jenkins-latest/Linux/Tiles/

Thanks! I’ll try it out and see if the problem persists… It might not if it’s been updated. Cheers!

Unrelated: Isn’t bitcoin that crypto-currency used to buy drugs / child pornography? We probably don’t want to associate that with the project lmao.

It’s just easier and faster to send to people than exchanging bank information or using western union or something. I use it all the time to tip, buy, reward, and pay for service online. You can associate it with whatever you like but it’s just money. I don’t think nuclear weapons or election campaigns were ever paid for with anything but traditional currency, but that doesn’t make fiat bad either necessarily.

FTFY :stuck_out_tongue:
Nothing wrong with Bitcoin, pretty sure I have some kicking around on a hard drive someone donated to me a few years ago for DDA work, used most of it to buy several Humble Bundles and pay for my domain name a few times.
