This is an installer script for the game Consortium by Interdimensional Games Inc.

Things done outside of PlayOnLinux

 Nothing has to be done outside of PlayOnLinux to make it work.


The installer throws a few errors while installing, but they should be safe to ignore.

Unfortunately the ending scene of the game is a bit broken in wine, so the screen will be completely black during this scene. The game is still completeable though. Instructions for finishing the game, and more information about how the game performs in wine i general, can be found in this thread:

The instructions for how to finish the game are:
"As soon as you see the thing you're approaching at the end of the game come into view, remove your hand from the mouse. When you find yourself in the void, tap the D key a couple quick times (you don't spawn perfectly lined up), and then just hold W."

I will provide these instructions and the link to the steam thread in the description of the game. The script also informs of this error during installation

The Script

So here is the script! Since the images are not yet uploaded I haven't beenable to test the POL_GetSetupImages command, I think it is correct though.

# Date : (2016-01-20 21-00)

# Distribution used to test : Xubuntu 15.10 x64

 of 'Launch' when the game has finished installing.")" "$TITLE"

## Fix for this game

# will be black while playing.

Could you change the script such that you can select GOG or Steam?
