Microsoft Windows Installation Guide

- Click on the Shogo icon on the desktop or "Start Menu".
GNU/Linux Installation Guide
Installing on regular GNU/Linux Systems.
- Download the demo shell script installer.
- Load up a terminal window, use the "cd" command to move to the directory where the install is located (For example: cd /home/user/)
- Run the installation file by typing "sh ShogoDemo.run" into the terminal, and read through the options.
- Load up a terminal window and type the following to launch the program: Shogo
- There is a patch available for the Shogo GNU/Linux Demo, to install just extract all the files to your Shogo directory. You can find the patch here: http://shogo.pentacle.nl/e107/download.php?view.60
Installing on 64-bit GNU/Linux systems (x86_64).
- Make sure you have the 32-bit compatibility libraries for your distribution. These usually add the "linux32" command (necessary to run the installer). Most likely they are already part of your distribution. In Fedora, support comes from util-linux-ng (core component package), others may vary. Consult your distribution's documentation to find out whether you already have this support or if you should add it, and how.
- In order to prevent an architecture mismatch, and be able to successfully install Shogo, when running the installer use this command instead: "linux32 sh ShogoDemo.run", this will fool the installer into thinking it is installing onto an i686 GNU/Linux system.
- Follow the prompts and when finished, you shouldn't need the "linux32" command to launch the game.
When installing the full version you will be asked to enter registration information, this includes a Serial Number (CDKey). DO NOT SKIP, when they say you won't be able to play the game if you don't fill out the form, they're not kidding!

If you get this when trying to run the installer, place this "export _POSIX2_VERSION=199209" into the terminal, press enter and then run the installer. After you are finished, put this into the terminal "unset _POSIX2_VERSION" and then you are done.
Download the Shogo-Libraries.tar.gz archive and extract the files to your Shogo install directory. This will provide you with period libraries that should help the Shogo binary launch on modern Linux distributions.

Tricks and Hacks
Better Graphics Quality
Go to your Shogo directory ("/usr/local/games/shogo" by default for the full version on GNU/Linux) and load up "autoexec.cfg" in a text editor. Find the "TextureDetail" line, and change the settings (For example, change it to 20.000000). Then start Shogo, and you should see an improvement in texture quality.
Slowing down the game
The game can tend to run too fast on modern systems, which can cause the game to be become more difficult due to faster enemy reaction times and can cause characters to start cutting each other off during dialogue sequences. To solve this problem you can cap the games's FPS by editing the autoexec.cfg found in your Shogo directory (by default /usr/local/games/shogo on Linux) and adding the line "MaxFPS" "30" or "MaxFPS" "50" depending on your preference. Alternatively on Linux systems you can also just edit the configuration for your own user account by editing the autoexec.cfg located in the ~/.hyperion/Shogo directory. This does not affect other users and does not require root privileges.
