Linux in beta!
A Linux version is now available by downloading the main game. It's stable but we think there are still some bugs in it. If you have a Linux machine then please have a go and let us know what you encounter.

Let us know any feedback!

Airplane not flying. In map only countries. Virus not infect Russia, China, India, continents where the virus has not yet been. Therefore the game is impossible to pass( Ubuntu x64. AMD A10. 4GB RAM.
Even playing in the casual mode, it seems that I'm playing on the mega brutal '-'

Airports shut down if the disease is severe enough and has been noticed in that country. You may want to try different forms of transmission such as boats or birds if this happens, although you're right, the lack of planes does limit you if your disease hasn't spread far enough yet. Try out some different strategies! :)

How do you mean exactly? Do you mean compared to Windows/Mac? Is this with a specific plague type, or across all? The game mechanics have not changed in terms of difficulty recently.

There are just an airports in the map (Arch linux x86_64). No seaports. No air and sea traffic. Impossible to infect any other continents.

Sorry to hear that. Could you send your player.log to pctechsupport@ndemiccreations.com please? This will help diagnose the problem :)

Thanks
Same thing for me : no ports, no airplanes, no contamination within several countries (especially India, USA, Bolivia, but maybe other. Some other countries seem to work normally. As for as I’ve seen, there is no research too. People seem to die normally however.



Where does the player.log can be found (or generated)? I did not find it in the game folder, and I did not find any folder like «.plague_inc» in my home, so I wonder where it may be, in order to send it to you…

I've played the mobile version of the game, I know how to win as bacteria, but before being warned that countries are searching a cure, the cure reaches 100% (in few minutes after starting the gameplay)

Are you seeing the cure progress bar in the bottom right of the screen? If not, this is a problem, it should always be visible along with your DNA points along the bottom of the game screen.

A few minutes definitely sounds fast for a Casual game, what's your strategy? Do you generally buy symptoms, transmissions or abilities first? What country do you normally start in?

Have you also played a Mega-Brutal game, followed by a Casual game, to measure the difference?

I always don't put symptoms (and I remove all that mutate) after infect everyone, I start generally on China, the disease spread very fast (this isn't normal). The difference between Casual and Mega-Brutal is the time to find a cure.

Choose another strategies will not help. Because airoport/bird and other do not work in any case. Where i can find player.log than send email? Sorry for my english, its very bad.

How can i get enlisted on the beta for Linux? I use Steam for Linux since the beginning and helped Serious Sam 3 BFE to get out on it. Im a Linux SysAdmin and Developer, my feedback will have more details.

First, thank you a lot for linux version.


I already played this game on windows and have done almost all main infections (except bioweapon and Simian Flu). I tried under linux Bacteria on casual, normal and brutal difficulty. There is no traffic (no ship, no airplain) even no harbor. Only abandoned airports.

For example Bacteria on Casual difficulty (darwinist, aquacyte, xerophile, ionised helix) started in Russia and concentrate on transmission -> livestock 1 than livestock 2 than bird 1 than bird 2, after 5 years of game I infected only 3 people in Russia. No other country no more people.

Ubuntu 14.04 x64

I've found Player.log by next path: "~/.config/unity3d/Ndemic Creations/Plague Inc: Evolved/"

The Linux depot is there if you have purchased the game already. Thanks.

It would be a huge help if you could get a video showing this to help us understand what you are seeing? Thanks.
