Tracking Linux-games that lack ebuilds

Here's a bunch of games that people on this forum have found that should be in a playable state, free (as in beer) and without using any form of Wine.

It's a list of games that lack ebuilds and also a list of those games that ppl in this thread has fixed ebuilds for.
There are several contributors but I'm hoping for others to join in and iron out the last ones.
Please add games you like that are FREE (Vendetta is NOT free) and PLAYABLE (tech demos don't count) to this post and I'll add them to the list. (This is the sucessor of this thread)

Wow... my launcher is in that list. I created GZLauncher which is a Linux launcher for ZDaemon (which is awesome.) I do not have experience in creating ebuilds so I can't create the builds for these two things. But I can offer this. The Linux ZDaemon Client will not compile under Gentoo as is. The Makefile needs quite a few changes. If anyone wants to make an ebuild please message me and I will give you a working Makefile. GZLauncher does not need any changes to compile. I develop it on Gentoo :).

EDIT: One note on the description of ZDaemon. It says it is a client/server version of Doom1. The truth is you can use it for Doom1, Doom2, and Final Doom. You just need the wad files. I imagine freedoom may work as well but I have never seen a server running it.

I've tried to make a ebuild for londonlaw, but my problem is to get the binaries into /usr/games/bin

Right now they go into /usr/share/games/bin ...

My ebuild (londonlaw-0.2.0.ebuild) :
Code:

# Copyright 1999-2005 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header

inherit python distutils games

DESCRIPTION="Online multiplayer adaptation of the classic Scotland Yard board game"
HOMEPAGE="http://www.eecs.umich.edu/~pelzlpj/londonlaw/"
SRC_URI="http://www.eecs.umich.edu/~pelzlpj/londonlaw//${P}.tar.gz"

LICENSE="GPL-2"
SLOT="0"
KEYWORDS="~alpha ~amd64 ~arm ~hppa ~ia64 ~mips ~ppc ~ppc64 ~sparc ~x86 ~ppc-macos"
IUSE=""

DEPEND=">=dev-lang/python-2.3
        >=dev-python/wxpython-2.4
        dev-python/twisted"

src_compile() {
        distutils_src_compile
}

src_install() {
        distutils_src_install --prefix=${GAMES_DATADIR}  --exec-prefix=${GAMES_BINDIR}

        dohtml doc/*
        insinto /usr/share/doc/${PF} && doins doc/*.tex
        prepgamesdirs
}

pkg_postrm() {
        distutils_pkg_postrm
}

pkg_postinst() {
        distutils_pkg_postinst
        games_pkg_postinst
}


Is there a way to do this?

First of all: Thanks for helping out, cato! :D

The command
Code:
dogamesbin XYZ
will mode the file names XYZ to /usr/games/bin. I'm not sure if londonlaw can handle that, but maybe it helps you.

There is an open bug with ebuild. Currently the ebuild doesn't work for me but doing some tweaking in the source does solve it.

REminiscence
http://membres.lycos.fr/cyxdown/reminiscence/

Quote:
REminiscence is a rewrite of the engine used in the game Flashback from Delphine Software. This program is designed as a cross-platform replacement for the original executable and uses the SDL library.


It is in early development but the game should be completable.

It needs the DOS version. I don't if it is abandonware or not.

:wink:

Shouldn't vegastrike be in an "outdated ebuilds thread" instead of here because it already has an ebuild, just outdated? Speaking of, we need a stickied "outdated game ebuilds" thread. I could start one, if no one else ones to.

I doubt that we need an own thread for that. Request for version bumps go directly to bugzilla in most cases. For larger packages like vegastrike or planeshift (when requests take longer), I don't think that these few packages will require an own thread.

So, you're basically saying I don't submit enough to bugzilla? You're right. I dont, but I have to get started first, and that's the difficult part.

Just so my posts aren't wasted:

Games and demos that don't have ebuilds...

Sin Demo as well as Sin full version
Terminus demo and full
glchess(not sure it's stable)
An alephone ebuild that installs the data files(now that they are freed), or at least tells you where to put them would be nice.(freebsd has some)
pizzaboy
freespace2 & freespace 2 demo
mistlands
savage
If the jumpnbump menu is the same menu used for debian in jumpnbump then I second the motion(or whatever)
Loki Demos or the Loki Demo installer
A Quake1 ebuild that installs the data files from cd.

I have more. I just can't remember them right now.
Edit: 1am 03-02-05
Links:
Sin was ported by hyperion entertainment but I can't find any files on their website. They might be, effectively, dead. However, the demo can still be found at fileplanet.com and fileshack.com, and the full version at tuxgames or ebay. Same with Shogo:MAD.
Terminus demo as well as patches can be found here
Here is a thread on Alephone and Marathon...still haven't figured out where to put the files in the ebuild.
pizzaboy can be found at fileplanet.com, though I've never played it.
glchess
freespace2 loki installer. Still not sure how to set it up to use the demo files.
Mistlands
savage
Loki Demo Launcher

Did I miss any? I haven't played all these games, actually. I just named off some games that didn't have ebuilds that I could think of. I do have savage, the Loki Demo Launcher, and the Terminus demo so I can help with those if anyone wants to do them. I have all the others too but I have either not installed them, not gotten them to work, or simply never bothered to play them.

:D I don't know. Maybe someone should write a letter to the developers (US-GOLD? )

Tested your ebuild. Read the comments on the bug page.

Hi!

I just downloaded FreeDoko from
[url]
http://free-doko.sourceforge.net
[/url]
It looks like a great game, but it is not in the portage tree yet. I think it has minor issues with some game variants.
I would like to see this game in the tree!

Guichan 0.3 released:

Quote:
2005-03-21 Version 0.3.0 released!
And yet another new version of Guichan! This release contains the things we didn't have time to include in the 0.2.0 release. Also a new wigdet, the window widget, joins the Guichan widget family. See the ChangeLog for further details on changes.
