When I download point release 1.32 for linux (x86 architecture), and try to install it on my Ubuntu 64bit machine (dual boot with Windows 10 64bit), it fails the installation, saying unsupported architecture. From what I know, 64bit OS should support 32bit applications, even installation. So why it doesn't work?

Okay, so I needed to install 32bit compatible libraries in order to run 32bit install and install additional 32bit compatible libraries in order to run the game. The game now runs, but sound doesn't work, unfortunately. This is bad and needs to be fixed. Do I miss OpenAL libraries?

From what I know, my sound card support sound output using 32bit application on a 64bit architecture. It just doesn't really matter which architecture runs on the machine, and whenever a 64bit OS runs a 32bit application in compatibility mode, using 32bit compatible libraries. Windows 32bit apps can run sound easily on my Windows 10 64bit machine, which also hosts Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64bit in dual boot. E.g. Audacity Windows 32bit app works sound output, so I know it should work. So why it doesn't in Ubuntu?

EDIT:
Team Arena seems to be lacking any textures. BaseQ3 is good, but Team Arena is completely empty, I can't even shut it down properly using GUI since there isn't any GUI. Well, there is an invisible GUI, I can click buttons, but it simply doesn't work. I won't access maps, I won't access anything. I was able to shut down the game only using quit command. No system shortcuts work, I can't even access Launcher, it just doesn't let me out. Only commands.
