For linux users: Doesn't run in wine it seems

64 Bit version won't launch at all (insta crashes, chrash highly suggests its a winapi function thats not avaible in wine)
32 Bit version freezes on something that looks like a license agreement dialog (without any text though. neither the buttons nor the text window)

Trying in a vm now. Lets hope the performance is good enough.

Technical details on 32 Bit one:

I may be speaking out of school here, but I don't believe Linux is yet supported - some Unity glitch that needs to be resolved.

Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.

Good to see everyone is excited about the release of the Creeper World 3 demo.

If it's working for you, you're probably too busy playing to be checking here!

If you're having technical issues, never fear - right now it's the middle of the night at Knuckle Cracker HQ, but come the dawn a team of highly trained Code Ninjas will spring in to action and resolve whatever it is that ails you/your system.



4h am it's not middle of the night ^^

i completed the demo 3 times :/ need more !!!!! :)

Well, it doesn't run in my win xp vm either :/

Thanks to all for their feedback and words of encouragement.  Apologies for not responding to each message individually.

Now, if you are running the 64bit version and getting a problem with the mono.dll, try downloading this and installing it.

Once installed, try the 64 bit CW3 build again.

I noticed that the sprayer seem to only hold 50 units of AC, but states it holds 100 units. Possible bug? 64-bit Windows if it matters. (First game I played that states up front about 64-bit support)

Otherwise, just waiting for release...

The Sprayer can collect left-over AC from the terrain and hold it as an internal reserve. Check the options on the unit details. It is also possible to have the sprayer return excess AC to the CN.

Only issue I've found: Wording in the intro is awkward - 50 thousand.  Should be either 50,000 or fifty thousand (latter matches the convention used elsewhere in the intro)

I kinda misread the 5 not as thousand or fifty thousand... but as 5 billion. like my sister all over again xD

I literally thought it was 5 billion into the future. really threw me off, but knowing it's less time only barely changes things for me.

Glad everyone's enjoying it just as much as I do! ;D

Can't do ANY MapMod stuff due to losing my copy of CW1/2. Also known as Commander-Strife, IIIStrife, and StormyFacade.

Great demo! I did notice one minor thing, that I thought I'd mention.

When selecting a planet, if you hit the "Online Scores" button, the scroll wheel on the mouse will both scroll the high score list AND simultaneously change the scale of the planetary system in the background behind the list. Hard to notice while scrolling down, because it was zoomed out to begin with, but then when I scrolled back up the system expanded to maximum size. Not really that big of a deal, but just thought I'd throw it out there in case nobody had already reported that.
