AVG might have a problem with the compressed .exe – wouldn’t be the first time :)

While I’m trying to unpact the archive with the game, I’m getting the message than the archive is corrupted and I can’t unpack it. I’m using the WINRAR program.

@Serd: Use a download manager to get the file.
@Night_Creature: The game is optimized for 320×240 devices, not for xxxx x xxxx :)

Q: How to activate the hidden/secret trainer?
A: If we would tell you, it would not be secret anymore, right? Let’s give you a hint: You can activate the trainer only in Level 1, while hitting boxes with a defined view, either face to the left or right. Once Giana’s Return reaches v1.0 we might uncover the secret
Please Uncover the Secret! PLEASE!

Yesterday I played the Giana’s Return again with this update and found it VERY GREAT ! , I saw some new graphics and so :-)
the only thing I not agree with this game is the speed on the Powerup/fireball she Shoot, should be more like from the old Giana Sisters , more jumping and forward-Speed.
Anyway this is magic , Many Thanx..

ehh why is the ubuntu version in .zip format o_O
should it not be .deb?

This example is for 32bit file ‘giana_ubuntu32’. For 64bit take the file ‘giana_ubuntu64’.
1. Download the zip folder and store it on your computer, e.g. in ~/Downloads.
2. Unzip the data stuff to the folder you like to, e.g. ‘/opt/gianasreturn-1.0’. You can use the package ‘unzip’ or another one.
user@name:~$ sudo mkdir /opt/gianasreturn-1.0
[sudo] password for user:
user@name:~$ cd ~/Downloads
user@name:~/Downloads$ sudo unzip gr-v1001-ubuntu.zip -d /opt/gianasreturn-1.0
3. Change the file mode bits, so that the file can be explored.
user@name:~/Downloads$ cd /opt/gianasreturn-1.0 && ls
user@name:/opt/gianasreturn-1.0$ sudo chmod +x giana_ubuntu32
4. Explore the file via shell and enjoy it.
user@name:/opt/gianasreturn-1.0$ cd ~
user@name:~$ xterm -e ‘cd /opt/gianasreturn-1.0 && ./giana_ubuntu32 -fs # the fs option is for fullscreen mode)
user@name:~$ xterm -e ‘cd /opt/gianasreturn-1.0 && ./giana_ubuntu32 -fs’
You can use the order
xterm -e ‘cd /opt/gianasreturn-1.0 && ./giana_ubuntu32 -fs’
even for a starter on the desktop or an entrance in the main menu. That looks complicated, but the programme is a little buggy in this way: all paths are relative to the current directory. The xterm detour does not care about that.
6. (not necessary!) Another way is to write a little shell script. Open your editor (for example ‘gedit’).
The gedit file should look like this:
Save it as ‘~/run.sh’.
Go back to the shell.
(gedit:3289): Bonobo-WARNING **: Bonobo must be initialized before use
Move the file to your gianas folder and change the file mode bits
The Ubuntu-32 version is still buggy. When I switch to the fullscreen mode (and that happens only with giana), my pc is crashing and must be rebooted.
I mostly noticed this bug, when I had started Giana once before. Maybe the programme doesn’t finish completely.
It would be nice, if you fixed it.
The fullscreen mode bug (s. comm. 12) will be also existing, if Giana’s is getting started in the first instance. It seems to work better with root, but that is not satisfactoring because: a. it will not be preferable to run a file with root, if it is not necessary; b. it is sometimes possible to start the file without root; c. I have not tested, if it is always possible to start it with root or if it is may-be crashing even so.
