GitHub: Harvest Massive Encounter Doesnt Start
I'm having a problem with Harvest Massive Encounter where I try and launch the game but it asks to install some deps with apt-get. I let it and it looks like they are already installed. I also tried to install the same ones manually using apt-get and :i386 (with worked on a different game). Anything to try? I'm on Linux Mint 14 (Ubuntu 12) 64-bit

I can't start it from inside steam as well. Have you tried running it directly from it's directory inside SteamApps/common?

I was able to get the game to run by commenting out the depencies line in the run_harvest and then creating a steam_appid.txt file with 15400 in the file.

Once the game was running though, it dosen't handle multiple monitors well at all. It couldn't find my resolution, highest was 1680x1050 when my main monitor is 1920x1080.

I'm using nvidia twinview for my multiple monitor setup.

I'm having problems with Harvest as well. I have an ATI card though, and Harvest asks to install some Nvidia libs upon start. I let it, but starting the game fails with errors like :

./Harvest: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.62: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Game removed: AppID 15400 "Harvest: Massive Encounter", ProcID 10196

The linked issue has been closed since it is the game's fault and not steam's. That being said, the fix mentioned by @=(eG)= d10sfan does not work for me, and I was wondering if any other fix is needed?

Right now, running from the directory itself, is outputing the below
$ ./Harvest
./Harvest: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.62: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

$ locate libjpeg.so.62
/home/karthikt/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libjpeg.so.62
/home/karthikt/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libjpeg.so.62.0.0
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libjpeg.so.62
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libjpeg.so.62.0.0

Any help is much appreciated

Locate "run_harvest" under Steam
(for me: home/[user]/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Harvest Massive Encounter/)

and edit it to look like this:

#!/bin/bash
#dependencies required for game
#DEPENDENCIES=("libstdc++6" "libc6" "libgcc1" "libgtk2.0-0" "libvorbisfile3" "nvidia-cg-toolkit" "libjpeg62")
#
#PKGSTOINSTALL=""
#
#INSTDIR="`dirname $0`" ; cd "${INSTDIR}" ; INSTDIR="`pwd`"
#
#check over the installed packages on this computer and build a list of the required ones
#for dep in "${DEPENDENCIES[@]}"
#do
# if ! dpkg -l | grep -w "ii $dep "; then
# PKGSTOINSTALL=$PKGSTOINSTALL" "$dep
# fi
#done
#
#if there was some packages found, pass over to the install script to handle it
#if [ "$PKGSTOINSTALL" != "" ]; then
# exec xterm -e ./installscript.sh $PKGSTOINSTALL
#else
# #everything fine, so run game here!
# export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${INSTDIR}/bin:~/.steam/bin
exec ./Harvest
#fi

All will be commented exept line "exec ./Harvest"

Remember to save ;)

Worked for me!
