Blank screen after launch on Ubuntu

Post by xellessdee420x »

A) Thanks for getting this game to this point! it works pretty well on my desktop, but I am having a problem using it on my Dell E6400 laptop.
B) I'm running Ubuntu 9.10, and have fixed the mods/packages/ problem.
c) Running the game with desktop effects enabled results in no action, turning off desktop effects and running the game makes the screen go black, with a distorted sound. after about 8 seconds, the sound turns into recognizable battle sounds, but the screen remains blank. The output of exception.log is:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: File not found: speech.mix
File name: 'speech.mix'

any suggestions?

The game can't find the file `speech.mix` in your packages folder. Make sure there's a file like that in either your mods/ra/packages or mods/cnc/packages folder.

I compared the files in my (mostly) working installation on my desktop, and with those on my laptop. there were no files in mods/cnc/packages folder on the nonworking laptop, so i manually copied them from my desktop, including a speech.mix. However, this had no affect on behavior, and exception.log is the same as well. There is no speech.mix in either computer's mods/ra/packages folder.

Did you install the packages from our server, or from the original disks?
If its from the disks, then speech.mix is contained within main.mix for ra, and cnc SPEECH.MIX (and all other packages) need to be renamed to lower case.
