I always love your games but this one won't work on my Ubuntu (Linux) computer. It's weird because most Windows games usually work fine for me.
The home screen is frozen and the mouse cursor won't move, whether I'm in Window or Full screen mode.
Does anyone else have this issue?

I'm using the latest Beta, maybe something has changed to cause the problem? Have you tried changing the render engine with winsetup (it's default is Direct3D 9)?
I can try and build a Linux version if you still can't get it to work (but I have no way of testing if it works nor have I build to Linux before).

Oh, and nice to know you enjoy my games.  :-D

I had the same problem with Cave of Avarice and checked and yours won't work for me either. Something about the Beta doesn't work with Wine.
If you have trouble building a Linux version, maybe Cat can help.

Linux version is now available by using the mirror link at the DB or direct here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/zcmb72z7h1k3sh1/BirdyBirdy2.tar.gz/file

Big thanks for morganw for building this for me.  (nod) :-D

Thank you for producing a Linux.
But it didn't work for me. I get this error message even though the library is present: "ags64: error while loading shared libraries: liballeg.so.4.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Anyway, I borrowed a Windows laptop to run the game and I like it. It's so original and cute !

Did you launch ags64 directly or did you use the script?
Edit: I tried and it seems there is something wrong with the library or how it is loaded

I just tried and had no problems running the AGS64 file.

I played the game with a self compiled (It is very easy to do, only follow the instructions (https://github.com/adventuregamestudio/ags/blob/master/debian/README.md)) Adventure Game Studio v3.5 Interpreter ACI version 3.5.0.12 and could find no technical problem at all.
The problems I faced were that the text font is small, not too small, but small enough to be somewhat annoying and
Spoiler: ShowHide
the bracelet is so flimsy and I could not spot it in the fountain, although I knew it must be there.

The good parts of the game are the story and especially the musical score!!!

I know about the bracelet problem, I just got the sprites very close to delivery and had no time to improve it.
I noticed the text was a bit too small after getting the final BG, but I didn't had the font to re-import it as I'm on vacation and brought everything but the font.  :-[

Sorry, I'll fix both after MAGS voting is over.

But I'm glad you enjoyed the game anyway.  :-D

Just a heads up, I just replaced the Linux version. Hope all works now.  :-D
