I've posted a request before but didn't respond for a long time so it was closed. I tried to leave a message there but couldn't, so I'm opening a new one. I'll forward those messages here for your convenience.

#### Hello! When I try to run an executable on Linux Ubuntu boswars from an unpacked archive, nothing happens.
####
#### I checked if I have all the libraries to run it. This is the result.
####
#### linux-gate.so.1 (0xf7f1c000)
#### libz.so.1 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libz.so.1 (0xf7ee2000)
#### libGL.so.1 => not found
#### libSDL-1.2.so.0 => not found
#### libX11.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libX11.so.6 (0xf7d90000)
#### libm.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libm.so.6 (0xf7c88000)
#### libc.so.6 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libc.so.6 (0xf7a00000)
#### /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf7f1e000)
#### libpthread.so.0 => /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libpthread.so.0 (0xf7c83000)

You responded to me with the following:

#### A lot of information is missing in order to be able to help.
####
#### Which version of Ubuntu? What type of hardware do you have? Which version of Bos Wars did you try to install? What was the exact package file?
#### Did you try to install the BosWars package from Ubuntu repository (something like "sudo apt install boswars")?

I tried to install them, but if I enter library names directly from here, nothing happens, it gives an error that such libraries do not exist. I asked neuralnet what's wrong. I was told to install these libraries for 86x64, if I understood correctly. They seemed to install (they had different names), but the install file still won't run. Help me figure this out, please. Inexperienced Linux user.

I apologize for not leaving enough information. I am an inexperienced Linux user, so many things look strange to me, since I have used Windows all my life.

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS version. I have an Asus Aspire 1 laptop (Intel UHD Grafpics, Intel Celeron N4500 1.10 GHz, 4GB RAM, 128GB Memory, 1920x1080). I can't tell you now exactly which version I was trying to install, but from the information I found, I was trying to install version 2.7. The package file for Linux (it's one, and I think you have an executable file there that you just have to run and the game will install itself). Yes, that's exactly what I did, I installed the game from the Ubuntu repository, it works, but I'm still bothered by the problem that I can't handle the installation myself.

On top of that, I have a new problem. I recently tried to install the game on Windows, but I couldn't find the installation file (.exe). I tried downloading the source code archives, but still couldn't do anything. Could you please advise me how this can be done on Windows?
