    Default Project Zomboid demo

    There's a demo available for Project Zomboid now. Linux (and Mac) isn't officially supported yet but as it's Java, getting it to run isn't hard. Seems to be working fine here with OpenJDK.

    Easily worth the 5 they're asking for a pre-order.

    Question

    did you do anything special to get the demo running ? I've tried the methods explained here http://pzwiki.net/wiki/Linux why no success. There seems to be a problem with my Java PATH :

    Code:
    (22:05) strider@astoria:~/Downloads/ProjectZomboid_PublicTechDemo_0_1_4c_plusbatchfix $ java -cp zombie.jar zombie.GameWindow
    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no lwjgl in java.library.path
    	at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(Unknown Source)
    	at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary0(Unknown Source)
    	at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(Unknown Source)
    	at org.lwjgl.Sys$1.run(Sys.java:73)
    	at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
    	at org.lwjgl.Sys.doLoadLibrary(Sys.java:66)
    	at org.lwjgl.Sys.loadLibrary(Sys.java:82)
    	at org.lwjgl.Sys.<clinit>(Sys.java:99)
    	at org.lwjgl.opengl.Display.<clinit>(Display.java:130)
    	at zombie.GameWindow.main(Unknown Source)
    I tried on Ubuntu and Debian, both 64bit, the Ubuntu install has OpenJDK while Debian has Sun Java.

    Has anyone had any luck with this game?

    @Strider: Sorry, I didn't see your reply until now.

    The game is working fine for me with OpenJDK version 6b18-1.8.7-5 (the one in Debian unstable)

    I used the Debian packages of jinput and lwjgl and I'm lauching the game like this:
    Code:
    java -cp zombie.jar zombie.FrameLoader
    AFAIK the only thing missing for a Linux "port" is for the developers to add linux libraries for jinput/lwjgl and write a shell script as a launcher.

    Same problem here, arch linux with full java installed.

    Did you try installing lwjgl first?
