Illegal Instruction


Recommended Posts

My attempt to try this game was very short-lived, as the demo failed to start immediately, just printing out "Illegal Instruction" and dropping back to the command line.

I have seen the same symptom before with another game that assumed SSE was available (my processor does not support SSE). The developers in that case recompiled without SSE.

Which is not to say that it could not be something completely different.

Needless to say, I do not want to buy a game that I cannot play. Any ideas on what to fix or required information?


Linux Debian (sid) (up-to-date)

Updated: Looks like it's SSE.
