Linux play and edit

#1 Post by San » 07 Nov 2017 22:24

Hi, I created this topic to join the people that uses linux, in one place, here we can (if approved), exchange ideas, such as
Euro Truck Simulator
Americam Truck Simulator
Blender (and its plugins, used for editing mods)
SCS Workshop Uploader
and image editing programs such as Photoshop, Gimp and Krita

Below is a tutorial of how I did to edit and play in linux (with the help of 50keda)!

How to play and edit mods in "Linux Mint 18.2 Xfce"

Install Wine:
Menu>System Tools>Software>Search>Wine (need password)
===========================================================================
Install Steam
Menu>System Tools>Software>Search>Steam (need password)
================================================================
Install Euro Truck Simulator (and, or American Truck Simulator)
===========
1ª download Game Archive Extractor
link: http://modding.scssoft.com/wiki/Documen ... r#Download

2ª Extract in the download folder

1ª You need open one folder and find /home/pcname,
(replace all the "pcname" with the name of your computer, in my case, my name is "sw-pc", my path will always be with this initial "/ home / sw-pc /")

2ª In /home/pcname
press CTRL+H

3ª Cut file "scs_extractor.exe" (CTRL+X)
that is in the download folder

4ª Paste in (CTRL+V) /home/pcname/.wine/drive_c/windows

5ª In /home/pcname/.wine/drive_c
Create new folder, use name "SCS"
Open de folder "SCS" and create new folder "ETS" (and, or ATS=american truck simulator)

8ª copy file "base.scs"(CTRL+C) /home/pcname/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Euro Truck Simulator 2/ (and ATS>> /home/sw-pc/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/American Truck Simulator/)

9ª CTRL+V in /home/pcname/.wine/drive_c/SCS/ETS (and, or ATS)


10ª Open the Terminal (CTRL+T)
(replace all the "pcname" with the name of your computer, in my case, my name is "sw-pc", my path will always be with this initial "/ home / sw-pc /")
use this code:

wine scs_extractor.exe /home/pcname/.wine/drive_c/SCS/ETS/base.scs /home/pcname/.wine/drive_c/scs/ETS/Base


11ª This code will create a folder named "base" and extract the file "base.scs" into it.

12ª If you want to extract other files from the game, such as "def.scs", replace "base.scs" with "def.scs", and the last word of the code will be the name of the folder that will receive the content extracted.


13ª if you want to rename the created folders, replace them on the command line before using Terminal! (example ETS for Euro)
