[SOLVED] - Where to download old version 2.3.9 for Linux?

Post by Doruletz » 14 Nov 2016, 06:34

DETAILS:
Where can I download the old version 2.3.9 of Warzone 2100?
I need the installer for Linux.
It has already been established in another thread that the Warzone 2120 MOD only works over the old version 2.3.9, and I would love to play it.....
Please post a link for the download.
Also, if you know, a step by step LINUX HOW TO install, start, run, etc would be greatly appreciated.
MUST BE LINUX ONLY, no Windows .EXE via WINE, etc...

THANKS!

**********************************************************************************************************************
EDIT:

Already tried to install/run Warzone 2.3.9 with the method described bellow, and it's not working, the ./configure && make command gives an error and fails to create the warzone2100 launcher inside the src folder.
Here is the error message:

Code: Select all

configure: error: Popt header not found.
Anybody help me with that?
**********************************************************************************************************************

Thanks Berg. Got the tar.gz

Is the procedure the same as for the newer ones, tar.xz?

Un-tar, CD to directory

Code: Select all

./autogen.sh
continue with

Code: Select all

./configure && make
and start the game with

Code: Select all

./src/warzone2100
For the Warzone 2120 MOD, do I just place the WZ_2120_v02_Beta_mod.wz file in

Code: Select all

/home/<USER-NAME>/.warzone2100-2.3/mods/multiplay
like any other MOD???

FINALLY got it!!!

Had to use an older Linux Mint version (Linux Mint 13LTS MAYA MATE) for the whole COMPILE process.
Also needed to install some dependencies (libraries, etc) to be able to "configure && make" successfully.
Namely:
bison++
bisonc++
flex
libpopt-dev
libglc-dev


Upon the successful creation of the Warzone2100 v2.3.9, I saved the whole folder to a USB Thumb Drive.
It runs directly off the USB, or you can copy it into your User (Home) Folder.

See screenshot from Warzone 2120:
