Hi,

can we get an explanation, why the Linux version is only about 1,5GB in size (archive and extracted) while the Windows version (german) uses 2,8GB (extracted). (Included in the 1,5GB from the Linux version are the language packs for the german, english, spanish and italian version as well.)

Looking at the files, they almost all seem considerably smaller. So I guess a better compression is used here?


Thanks.

I was wondering that too, though perhaps it has something to do with less libraries not being included in linux version maybe? (With my limited bandwidth I can only speculate that the windows version comes with more libraries)

I just made an experiment: I installed the "2.2.0" Windows version of Deponia 2 (don't own the GOG version of Deponia 1) using Wine - after installation, it took about 5.8 GB of disk space.

Then I installed "Patch 3.2" (f***ng GOG version number chaos!), and the result takes only 3.0 GB!

The Linux version is about 2.9 GB - almost the same.

So it's apparently not a Windows/Linux difference, but an "old version"/"new version difference" - Daedalic switched to another game engine that's apparently more memory-efficient...
Deponia for Linux always insists on Language: IT|EN for me, how can I change this?
I even redownloaded the whole stuff but no avail.

EDIT: OK, I clicked on language selection accidentally and didnot find it again afterwards as it is dull grey, it seems.
It's in the menu screen in the bottom right, next to the images of the different games (screenshot attached).
