Debian Games (port thought)

so... after having a look through the majority of the browsers on offer (and finding the non-runners) I figured since you highlighted games I would spend a few (long hours) grabbing down some games.

Since this is a highly tedious and long process I will make quick notes about my tests to save duplicated effort. Way I figure it if it runs fairly decently in the harness it would only run better natively : )

Also it's a nice way to get a handle on footprints since this is rarely documented.

The absence of python-games makes a few sets of games currently inaccessible. however I think I have a python-games build for the 3 / 5 so that is not insurmountable. there may be a route already out there for support that I just don't know about.

Games That Didn't Work with no effort

Airstrike. Ran once with impressive graphics but hangs far too much. good to see QT really shining.

Armegetron Advanced (I would like to test the old one too...)

atris (this almost works, need to hack the colors in the source is all now)

biloba

Games That Just Work with no effort

attal: (Option "fast server" will hang client - otherwise pretty solid)

ace-of-penguins: cards - a variety. under test. "H" to see help. Esc or Q to quit. Double click to auto place... fun

Taipei also works great from the ace-of-penguins range (would suit a rotated screen)

KsirK - Risk Clone - works surprisingly well (can do 2 player AI)

TBC.
