There is an official Debian release being developed by apo (a Debian Games Dev). You can get the testing packages here: ftp://46.182.19.209/ufoai/

The thread can be found here: http://ufoai.org/forum/index.php/topic,7862.0.html

I need to download all the files? If i download them, how can i install them?

You don't need to download all of them, some packages (uforadient, ufoai-server, ufoai-music, ufoai-dbg, ufoai-tools) are optional.

The base minimum to download are:
ufoai (i386 or amd64), ufoai-common, ufoai-maps, ufoai-misc, ufoai-sound and ufoai-textures

To install them use dpkg:
sudo dpkg -i ufoai*.deb

Thanks.

I do a wrong thing. I copied all these files on the final directory. The game doesn't works. I uninstalled it, but now when i try to reinstall the 2.4, an error occurs; the package is not recognized as a debian package.

I'm looking for a solution, so, when i found it, i will try to do the installation again.

Hi. I solved my linux problem. I'm now installing 2.4 on debian-based distro. i want to install 2.5, so i need to download:

ufoai-misc_2.5~git20131101-1_all.deb

ufoai-sound_2.5~git20131101-1_all.deb

ufoai-maps_2.5~git20131101-1_all.deb

ufoai-textures_2.5~git20131101-1_all.deb

ufoai-common_2.5~git20131101-1_all.deb

But, i when you said "ufoai (i386 or amd64)", you refers to: ufoai_2.5~git20131101-1_amd64.deb, or i need the 2.4 base to upgrade?

source of files: ftp://46.182.19.209/ufoai/

2.5 is a completely separate installation, there is no upgrade. I do not know if the 2 versions packages will interfere with each other so I would suggest only installing 2.5 for now, and once that is working, then consider 2.4 if you still want to play it.

So, i must install this file also?

ufoai_2.5~git20131101-1_amd64.deb

If you are on a 64bit OS then yes. Otherwise you need the i386 file, but I expect you are on a 64bit system.

We didn't change model formats so should be possible. Check the ufo scripts, models are usually scripted.

The *msgid:inter_saracen_txt like entries are defined in base/ufos/msgid/*.ufo files which are the source files for long text.

To translate we use the gettext lib, and the language files are in src/po/ (*.po). Use poedit tool for translating!

To update the po files from the program source code (check for new/changed translatable entries) we have a make target: make update-po. It works well if you have the Git sourcecode checked out (on source package or just the installed version probably it won't do good job).

In 2.5 the map assembler will use the id of the aircraft for the "dropship tile" ( aircraft <id> { <data...> } ). For crashed aircraft the code has a few constants (none for saracen)
