Linux Downgrading OpenMW

Post by MiloJames » 16 Jun 2017, 02:08

Hey all. Got a predicament with OpenMW v. 0.41.0 on my Linux Ubuntu 14.04. Crashes on startup after playing blue screen intro. This is not a bug report, merely a question: How do I downgrade back to 0.40.0 so I can continue playing my favorite game? I upgraded to 41 using the terminal and updating with the PPA. I have been unable to find a way to downgrade back and have even tried building from a daily source code update. Every day its updated I try and they do not compile. So, downgrade?

Use ppa_purge, it should downgrade openmw for you:

PPA purge will only remove openmw from my OS as I obtained it originally from the PPA. I've configured my OS to remove unused packages, so anything that openmw had before I upgraded was wiped clean and reinstalled completely.

Then ppa_purge will also remove the PPA, so when you ask to install the package again, it will the distro's openmw version and not the PPA's.

I'm not sure if Ubuntu 14.04 has any version of OpenMW in its repos.

Nope, only in Xenial and upwards.

I reckon, on Linux, you could build OpenMW from sources. Then you may git checkout on any revision you like and rebuild.
