Read-only filesystem

Is there any way to make this game run on a read only filesystem on Linux? It keeps trying to write on the data directory, which makes the game practically unpackageable (i.e. see comments in ... mments=all).

Myself, I'm trying to package the game as a AppImage. The container is a read-only, auto-executable package, which runs the game fine without installation nor unpacking, but crashes when someone shoots a gun and the game realizes it can't write in the data section.

Code: Select all
        Warning : Creating textures resource data/textures/hud/
        Warning : Creating models resource data/models/projectile.bbm
        Warning : Re-saving data/models/projectile.bbm as native
                ERROR : TankAppClient::handleNetwork ->
                        TankApp::handleNetwork ->
                        CreateGameObjectCmd::execute() ->
                        GameObjectVisual::setModel(projectile) ->
                        Couldn't write to file data/models/projectile.bbm
/tmp/.mount_1lNatL/AppRun: line 21:  8047 Aborted                 (core dumped) ./$BINARY $@

By the way, is missing from the game package fo Linux, which is not available by default in some distros, i.e. Ubuntu 12.04. I included it in my package, which is available on ... allistics/

Hi Razziel

First of all, thanks for your effort to make ZB a portable app image! It was not designed to run on r/o devices so i hope you can make it work.

@Issue stated above:
You could try two things, either set the "" in config_client.xml to 0 or 1 and pack the respective config file (results in reduced graphics quality)

or change the code in:
line 116-123 to fit your needs and recompile the executable.

kind regards,

Red-only filesystem will protect the original system from getting currupted. All latest apps like App Even are made in read only based these days.

Read file system is the main caption as you can see and read about it from here. The caption that has been mentioned for the sake of others is now. Just have a look here and we hope that this would be helpful for many people out there.

You can buy dissertations online about this system. I think it's really cool and can be useful for your business.
