INTRODUCTION

The guide shows you how to install and run Ghost Master. Ghost Master is one of the most underrated games and it really deserves more attention. Sadly it seems there’s no real market for such games. It’s an unique game in the same category as Dungeon Keeper – More games of these, thanks!

This is tested on Ubuntru 10.10 with Crossover Games 10 with a Nvidia card.



INSTALLATION

If you haven’t already installed steam, download Crossover Games file for Steam (.tie file – “Install via CrossTie”): Click here.

Double click on the .tie file and then the Crossover Software Installer pops up – Click [Proceed].

When Steam is installed and you have logged into steam, download Ghost Master.


RUN GHOST MASTER WITHOUT STEAM

There’s a mod which enhance the gameplay of Ghost Master but also allow you to run Ghost Master without starting Steam up.

Download it here: Click here

Double click the .exe file and you’ll be greeted by Crossover Software Installer. Choose [Steam] in the [Will install into the bottle..] menu. Thereafter click [Proceed].

It should automatically detect where Ghost Master is installed.


RUN GHOST MASTER WITHOUT COMPIZ

Open the terminal and type;

  • mkdir -p ~/.Games
  • nano ~/.Games/GhostMaster.sh


  • add the following;
    #!/bin/bash

    metacity --replace &
    "~/.cxgames/Steam/desktopdata/cxmenu/StartMenu.C^5E3A^5Fusers^5FPublic^5FStart^2BMenu/Programs/Ghost+Master+(All+Ghosts).lnk"
    compiz --replace &

    [ctrl]+[o]: Save
    [ctrl]+[x]: Exit

    Now setting up a launcher;

  • chmod +x ~/.Games/GhostMaster.sh
  • alacarte
  • Edit the current Ghost Master (all Ghost) entry to;

  • sh -c "~/.Games/GhostMaster.sh"


  • TROUBLE SHOOTING


    NO VISIBLE CURSOR
    This is a little bit tricky, it’s almost hide’n’seek to change the settings with an invisible cursor.

    In Ghost Master Options go to Display and click the Enhance Cursor button. Then the Accept button.
    Now you’ll have a cursor.


    WHAT’S NOT WORKING

    Ingame movies don’t work.

      Hey, I followed all your instructions, but the game still won’t run. When I run it, I accouter a white screen with a window that says that this may be due to a deficiency in wine. Is there anything that I can do?
