Hi,

I just bought the Humble Indie Bundle #4 and downloaded NightSky for Linux. When starting it up, it displays the intro screens ("Nicalis presents a Nicklas Nygren game"), but shortly after showing the "NightSky" text on top, it stops responding to events, without any crashes or terminal messages, forcing me to kill the process. The same thing happens when trying to run the Windows version with Wine. CPU usage maxes out on the core it's running on which led me to assume it enters a simple infinite loop.
My system is CrunchBang Linux 10 (32-bit); if you need any more info, please tell me.

Any help on how to get this game to run would be greatly appreciated.

This still happens. I'd like to be able to play the game in Crunchbang as well...

Refer to this:

"Game starts, ut i see only nightsky logo and no slots for games.
If i rename lib64 to _lib64 (because i think i have every lib) it works fine.
System is 64bit."

I had the same problem and renaming the lib64 (or lib folder for 32-bit) worked for me. You'll need to install the requisite libraries yourself though as replacement:

libalut   libglut  libopenal   libvorbis
libGLU   libogg   libvorbisfile   libz

I've tried that, OhneHerren, but it still doesn't work. Thank you for at least trying to help. :/

I think this is what Marukyu means, as he linked to this post:
You could install libalut,  libogg and libz using the package manager and rename/remove the lib64 folder. The main executable is compiled against an older version of glibc for compatibility reason, it's just the libraries that cause problems for you.

My bad, I should have stated that. ^^'

Because I'm using 32 bit, I renamed the "lib" folder to "lib_" and installed the missing libalut library using apt. This allowed me to play the game without any problems.
