  1. This worked but the game is not the same as what it is on YT and stuff. It is lagy and the sensitivity is through the roof. Not quit playable but the game is good just not this version. I should have looked up a 2021 tutorial to get the latest version. That or this is just the only version available on Linux. IDK realy but the time I spent doing this and making sure it was right was not work it sorry to say.
