After selecting a team to load (I selected indanapolis)
The program just freezes.

I did a strace and it keeps repeating the line

select (0, NULL, NULL, NULL, {0, 1000000}) = 0 (Timeout)

    Okay, the first time I tried running this under Linux on my
    machine, I had a similar problem. However, it managed to run
    after a second attempt, and I just ran it again and it
    worked fine, with Indianapolis as my selection.

    Hopefully I can figure out what's behind this bevahiour
    soon. Sorry about that. Most of the development up until now
    has been under Windows, so there might be a fair number of
    little annoyances like this under Linux that need addressing.

    update: update:

    I found a work around for the bug. I start an instance from
    an xterm window. Then I get to the select team screen and
    select a team. Then when it crashes I press ctrl-z in the
    terminal window to put the program in a stopped state.

    Then I start another instance in the same xterm without
    kiling the previous process.

    Maybe the program is crashing because some resource is
    causing the crash and when you start a second instance the
    crashing resource is busy and doesn't get invoked or
    something. Just a guess.

    Might be mine too. I just ran the game again and experienced
    the crash, and this time didn't get any music to go along
    with it.

    I'll try including a --nosound option for the command line
    in the next version.
