Chimera Chimera

Puzzle platformer: You are a radioactive bear, who must absorb the abilities of other animals to reach the goal.

If you get an error about AVBin, e.g. "AVbin is required to decode compressed media.", try changing the line 'music=1' to 'music=0' in the config file. I'm not sure why this happens sometimes.

Updated Mac instructions:
First, download and install the pyglet DMG from here: http://www.pyglet.org/download.html

Then, if you are on Snow Leopard, from a bash shell:
$ VERSIONER_PYTHON_PREFER_32_BIT=yes python chimera.py

Otherwise, if you are on Lion:
$ arch -i386 /usr/bin/python2.6 chimera.py

There may be a timing bug on Mac. I'm looking into it.

Ubuntu & Debian instructions:
Ubuntu & Debian provide a python-pyglet package, but it's an old version that has a bug with resource loading, at least on Linux. The fix is is to install the new pyglet:

$ sudo apt-get purge python-pyglet
$ sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
$ sudo easy_install pyglet

After that, you also want avbin:

$ sudo apt-get install libavbin0

In general, make sure you are using pyglet 1.1.4!
