Little help with sound quality on mx simulator in Linux

Postby suuhoo » Fri May 17, 2019 10:00 pm

Hello

Thinking about migrating from window to linux. Dualbooting now to see if all of the important stuff is working.

When trying to run mx, with this command:

Code: Select all

sudo ./mx
I get this:
error while loading shared libraries: libasound.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Searched on the internett and found this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libasound2:i386


After that I got a new message: error while loading shared libraries: libXi.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

After installing multiple packages this finally worked:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libxrender1:i386 libxtst6:i386 libxi6:i386


So now I can run mx like on windows, but the sound is really bad. Does anybody of you know how to fix the sound?

The sound quality on Linux will be a little worse than Windows with DirectSound since it's a software mixer that doesn't even interpolate samples when resampling frequencies. (Basically the sound equivalent of bilinear vs point sampled texture mapping in graphics.) Shouldn't be a huge difference though.

Also, it's a bad idea to run the game with sudo. You don't want it running as root. Run it with ./mx so it'll run as a normal user.
