Ghost Master (Steam) – Crossover Games
with Crossover Games
3. Run Ghost Master without Steam
4. Run Ghost Master without Compiz
6. What Does Not Work
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.
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
add the following;
metacity --replace &
compiz --replace &
Now setting up a launcher;
Edit the current Ghost Master (all Ghost) entry to;
sh -c "~/.Games/GhostMaster.sh"
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.
