Search And Rescue Add On Pack, by me!
I released an add on pack today for Search And Rescue, the helicopter rescue game for Linux.
I usually don't do anything for video games, but I like flying my choppers, and had fun messing around with this. It turned out well enough to share with the world, so here goes.
Here is my readme file verbatim:
Crazy Denny's "Search And Rescue PC Game for Linux by WolfPack Entertainment" Add On pack
SAR's Website: http://searchandrescue.sourceforge.net/
Cars/Trucks: Ambulance, 'Cuda, Firetruck
Boats/Ships: Stanyou Pilothouse Yacht, US Coast Gaurd 378 High Endurance Cutter, JetSki
And a Flying Oil Rig.
*Car info: You are going to want to activate autopilot before accelerating, unless you like *bumpy* rides. -and- steering is done by holding ctrl and using the arrow keys simultaneously, otherwise you will fly her like a airplane.
Denali, a desert map clone but with a lot more buildings, the yacht, the cutter, and the oilrig where added to give some more fun things to fly to/over. Denali has no people to save, it's just a nice fly around map.
Modified: as350 b47 hh60 hh65 ka27 s64 uh1d v22
What's modded: They go about 660 mph at full throttle now, can fly like airplanes using the y key, and don't run out of fuel.
*The hh60 will not get off the ground with her extra fuel tanks in chopper mode. You will either have to go into y mode and fly her off like an airplane, or drop the extra fuel tanks with ctrl-f.
*Nothing runs out of fuel.
Warning: The cars and boats may flash a lot until you change cameras, so be prepared.
The folders included need to be put into /usr/share/games/searchandrescue/. There are 2 folders, aircrafts & scenery.
Permissions will have to be changed to the /usr/share/games/searchandrescue/aircrafts and /usr/share/games/searchandrescue/scenery folders once you copy over the content. Root priv's should be set to read and write, and be exectuable.
The terminal command sudo chmod a+x /usr/share/games/searchandrescue/aircrafts/* && sudo chmod a+x /usr/share/games/searchandrescue/scenery/* should solve this problem.
You can also do this by typing gksu (name of file manager) i.e. thunar/nautilus/pcmanfm in terminal or run dialog, then go to /usr/share/games/searchandrescue/ and right click the folders, and choose permissions tab.
