The RVGL launcher project has made it even easier to install and play the good old racing game ReVolt.

To play on ubuntu, there are some prereqs you need to have in place, and not all of them are mentioned on the official RVGL launcher. To help you, I have gathered everything in a one liner, just here:

sudo apt install python3-wxgtk4.0 python3-requests python3-packaging p7zip-full xdg-utils libsdl2-2.0-0 libsdl2-image-2.0-0 libopenal1 libenet7 libunistring2 libjpeg8 libpng16-16 libtiff5 libwebp7 libvorbisfile3 libflac8 libmpg123-0

If you get an error on libwebp7, please try libwebp6

When the above is installed, download, extract and launch RVGL from here:

When lauched, you may get an error about a lock file, dont worry, it’s only the first time you run it. Press “Download and Install” in th bottom, and you are ready to play. Remember to explore additional options in the rvgl launcher, it’s packed with cool features 🙂

Get ready, set, race!
