Code: Select all

    dir=`dirname $x`
    echo "convert $dir/$file.dds $dir/$file.png"
    convert $dir/$file.dds $dir/$file.png
done



That script is wrong (doesn't handle files/dirs with spaces inside and there are A LOT of them).


and back to the topic.. Please check files in .positech/GSB/web/*.txt
are there any clues inside?

No, it doesn't handle spaces in filenames but in the campaign DLC, and the linux version of GSB, there aren't any.

The only text files under web are challenges/challengelist.txt, news.txt, messages.txt.

The only file that actually has any information in it is news.txt and that just appears to be patch notes.

Or the equivilant location on your system


On a 32bit linux system that will allow the key to be verified in the online screen however it does not seem sufficient to enable campaign mode.

When clicking the campaign button I get a message that says

Login Failed!
Either your PC is not online, your firewall is blocking the game, or your serial number is not valid. Please check and try again.


According to the online screen my registration code and username are both valid.


I have the same error message on WinXP pro at work, in an environment where I don't have admin privileges (I made a portable install of GSB, which seems to be working except for that error).

The registration code and username both appear valid on the screen though. Can't access campaign. ;(
