I can't help you myself, but you could tell us what Linux distro you are using and version you are using.

Also whether you know your way around Lutris and Steam.

Hi sansisapo,

I can help you with downloading and installing "No Players Online" on Chrome OS. Since you mentioned you downloaded the game from itch.io and are comfortable using the terminal, I'll provide detailed steps for both the Steam and itch.io versions. I'll go into detail for each step so it's easy to follow.

Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade
Press Enter after each command and wait for the process to complete.

Press Enter and follow any prompts that appear.

Step 3: Download and Install the Game

Installing the itch.io Version

PS. This is only the basics. You can download it with Lutris and run it better with Lutris. I will gladly give you a guide if you want that.

Hey,thanks for the new version,but the thing is,im trying to download the old version,do you know how to do that version?
 
If you have the game as an EXE file, you can install it the same way as any other EXE file using Wine. If you don't have the EXE file and are looking for it, you might need to ask the developer or search for it on Google.

When it comes to using Wine, the process for installing EXE files is generally the same.

If you want to roll back to an older version of the game on Steam, you will need to perform an update rollback, but it's not that easy. Here's a detailed guide to help you with that process:

Step-by-Step Guide for Installing and Downgrading a Game on Steam in Linux

1. Enable Steam Console:
- Open your terminal and start Steam with the console enabled:
Code:
     steam -console

2. Go to steamdb.info:
- Open your web browser and go to steamdb.info.
- Use the search bar at the top right to find your game.

3. Get Game/App ID Number:
- Click on the game that matches your search.
- Note down the App ID from the URL.

4. Check Game's ACF File:
- Navigate to your Steam install path, usually at ~/.steam/steam/steamapps or ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps.
- Locate the appmanifest_[appID].acf file.
- Open it with a text editor like gedit or nano.

5. Get Depot ID Number:
- On steamdb.info, find the correct Depot number from the game’s details page.

6. Get Manifest ID Number:
- Click on the Depot number, then click the Manifests tab.
- Find the version you want and note down the Manifest ID.

7. Download the Package:
- In the Steam console, type the following command:
Code:
     download_depot <gameID> <depotID> <manifestID>
- For example:
Code:
     download_depot 236870 236871 8264336280323447139

8. Replace Game Files:
- Once the download is complete, the files will be located in ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/content or ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/content.
- Navigate to the directory where the files are downloaded and replace your current game files with the downloaded files.

9. Prevent Steam from Updating Your Game:
- Option 1: Edit the ACF File:
- Open the appmanifest_[appID].acf file in a text editor.
- Change the "State Flag" to "4" to indicate that the game is up-to-date.
- Save the file and set it as read-only to prevent Steam from updating it.
Code:
     chmod 444 ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/appmanifest_[appID].acf
- Option 2: Boot Steam in Offline Mode:
- Navigate to the Steam config folder, usually at ~/.steam/steam/config or ~/.local/share/Steam/config.
- Open loginusers.vdf with a text editor.
- Change "WantsOfflineMode" and "SkipOfflineModeWarning" to "1".
- Save the file and set it as read-only:
Code:
     chmod 444 ~/.steam/steam/config/loginusers.vdf
- Restart Steam, and it should launch in offline mode automatically.

I hope this helps! If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.
