[Arcade PC] The Act (Interactive Movie Arcade) (Linux Based)


Recommended Posts

Act - Videogame by Cecropia

This is a previously lost Linux based FMV arcade game similar to Dragons Lair that was never fully released.

The company behind it had plans to fully release it but they went under and the game was only ported to iOS before being taken down from the App Store.

 

It was made by former Disney animators. More information about the game can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Act_(video_game)

 

The game works in TeknoParrot (Patreon-only).

Here is the dump of the game extracted from the recovery ISO:

The executable is decaf_Linux, it can be found by going into the Bin folder inside the decaf folder.

The game doesn't seem to require a dongle or IO board as you can use the keyboard/mouse to control it. However, the game is unable to boot in a VM.

 

The ISO for the recovery disc was recently found by NUTDOG and Ziggy on the Hidden Palace discord and you can download it here:

great news 

but isn't it an iPad game. yeah it was made to be an arcade game invented by Omar Khudari and Dan Aykroyd 

The Act was never meant to be an iPad game. If things had gone as planned, arcades would be a profitable market and The Act would be that market's most popular game. As fate had it, arcades fell apart and so did The Act

To see in the gameplay but I am absolutely not a fan of this kind of game

  • The title was changed to [Arcade PC] The Act (Interactive Movie Arcade) (Linux Based)
  • 2 weeks later...

Hi all, my game is still crashing back to TP UI. I have extracted the iso and dist.tar.gz, which gives you disc.tar and then extracted this folder, which gives you the dist folder. I have pointed to the decaf_Linux file.

 

What am i doing wrong please guys. I have attached screenshots.

 

Latest drivers, Nvidia RTX2060, 16g of ram and i5 6600k

 

Thanks a lot in advance for any help

I have the same problem, patreon.

I assume we both got version .40 of ElfLdr2

And according to Reaver of TP version .41 should work with The act.

But it got not pushed with the latest TP update 1.0.0.885

Check about TP versions info at top left three stripes menu.

"Sorry updater was confused, try updating now."

Now it pushes .41 and The act works. 👍
