    Two things on the Linux version:
    First, please package in tarballs. Why do we do this? First, the compression (usually gunzip or bzip2, though xz is lzma-based and the most powerful) is far superior. Second, bzip2 and gz are universally supported on Linux systems, and xz almost is (it’s a matter of time before Debian switches too). More importantly, tarballs retain UNIX permissions. No need to include a readme. Saves everyone some hassle.

    Second, it won’t work! I get this output:
    Set current directory to /home/superuser/games/FoW
    Found path: /home/superuser/games/FoW/FoW0.9.6b.x8664
    There is no data folder

    There IS a data folder, it’s FoW0.9Data! What on earth is going on, I ask you?
