I tried quickly now on a debian stretch (actual testing), with Xfce (no compiz) and works fine.

f I try to launch the reduced version (by the way, thanks for this), the game crashes after the first loading screen, but I think it is because of the lack of files.
Code: Select all
$ ./forge-mobile.sh
Language 'java.util.PropertyResourceBundle@2d9c5195' loaded successfully.

Yeah, the reduced version is not meant to be launchable in a standalone way, you need to copy the music and skins files manually from the previous installation. ;)

Although the problem is obviously not resolved (after the first start will not start in full screen), a friend of mine reminded me that I can increase the virtual screen size in linux, so:
Code: Select all
xrandr --output LVDS1 --panning 1280x850
where LVDS1 is your screen readable launching the xrandr command without parameters, this is mine:
Code: Select all
$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1280 x 800, maximum 32767 x 32767
LVDS1 connected primary 1280x800+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 261mm x 163mm
   1280x800      59.98*+
...
50 pixels are enough for me to have forge in fullscreen

UPDATE (08/14/17): Updated to r35042 (pre-1.6.1.005). Please note that installation instructions have changed a little bit, please review the information in the first post.

In particular, the resolution is now defined in the file "screen_resolution.ini" in the format WxHxFS, where FS is 0 for windowed mode and 1 for fullscreen, e.g. 1920x1080x1 or 1280x800x0.

Hi, I would be really interested to get the Android backport for PC.. for the version 1.6.17 just released. Is it possible? I'd love to play Planar Conquest on PC!

It seems you always prepare the backport version for Mac and post about it in the forums, it'd be great to get the Windows version of the backport too!!!

Thank you and to all the other devs for this fantastic world of Forge that you keep running!!!
