did the 1.0 version work on linux? Linux is somewhat grey area for me (i really suck at coding things)...
i only can assume its it has something to do with image formats i guess?

Can you tell me what mods works for you in linux so i can chek out those mods what they have that i dont.

You could try one dumb trick... in ruleset its named as ShotgunAmmo2.gif ...now go into  X:\OpenXcom\data\Resources\GunsNGadgets_1\Shotgun folder and you see there image named as Shotgunammo2.gif (the letter "a" in ammo word is small font). Change that Shotgunammo2.gif to ShotgunAmmo2.gif with big A letter and report me what happens :P ... that might be something wich messes up things.

I never used the Buckshot ammo for the Grenade Launcher until now. As soon as I fired it, the game froze and I was having a good time too lol. That always happens, though. I really like the sprite model of the GL, unless I'm wrong and Warboy's is the same. I'll play again and see if the game freezes with an HE round.

The buckshot ammo requires the calculation of many arcing trajectories from the shooting point all the way to the target simultaneously and the display of many hit animations simultaneously as well. It is a very nasty ammo to computers ;)

HE and Smoke Ammo should work fine.

Thank you for the quick reply Arthanor. I did try the other two ammo types and they were fine. So I guess my PC is getting old :( or is this a limitation within OXC?

I think it's a limitation of the way OpenXCom does things, but that's just my own feeling.

I'm sure you can run some FPS game that has multiple (graphically represented) projectile trajectories at the same time on your computer (even if just something like the first Unreal Tournament), so it seems unlikely that it has anything to do with your hardware, more with the way the game does things.

If you try to shoot the buckshot at short range, I am pretty sure it works since the trajectories are shorter so less intensive for OpenXCom to handle. This is also the best range to use the buckshot since you are more likely to score multiple hits on an alien that way. Over long ranges, explosive ammo is the way to go.

It works on Linux if you systematically rename all of the files it reports as missing or bad with the correct case (either lower or upper).  In one case (no pun intended) you must copy and rename an entire subfolder with the different case.

I think you have to do this to about 8 files/folders. Took me about 10 minutes.

After that... it works!
