Enjoy chess, BrutalChess was a favorite but it does cheat!

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Mahjongg, sudoku, pipewalker for puzzle type games.

Old style yamagi-quake2, wolfenstein rtcw, openarena for fps games.  I have tried various cube based games such as AssaultCube and find them to be way too fast; I end up standing their like an idiot and instant game over, dont get it.

Endless sky is something I recently installed to check out, but havent had time yet; possibly interesting.

I don't play games at all. It's a pointless waste of time.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I like 0ad and solitaire mostly, chess occasionally but I agree with zephyr that the chess engines like to cheat.

And what is not waste of time??

btw 0ad is kind of hard to me

by the time i have 5 soldiers and few buildings my enemy attacks me with 100 soldiers and hes got 40 buildings
game is really fast paced everytime i play it i feel like i cant relax for a moment with soldiers or buildings

and wesnoth is kind of long game, i played the campain with konrad and its kind of hard to get, idont know when to recall soldiers, and all this stuff....

another issue that i have is there are so many games in synaptic but being so used to convenient windows games, i usually dont get them.

So do I! A rollicking round of Aisleriot is quite exhilarating! That's the extent of my 'gaming'.

No, I'm not a gamer... smile

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

A poster above is not a gamer and i am the person who doesnt really go on youtube or reddit
but ill have quick read on wildfire, thanks for link smile

uhhh i can sayi m gamer cuz i played lots of my time but this is the windows thing you buy windows you download game and you play it
i wanna transform myself into being open-source gamer, so for that i basically wanna stop playing windows games via wine or playonlinux, this is the most important step (but i feel somehow addicted to them after years of playing, so its hard), try to play as many games from synaptic package manager as possible and then study how linux functions and manage to operate openbox, that i just downloaded today and so far so great.

I have to say that i used quite distributions maybe like tested them and for some reason i learnt few terminal commands on devuan not on fedora ubuntu or manjaro. Although i have to say that i really like linux mint, maybe it has systemd but honestly linux mint is the only distro i would recommend to anybody that is not really into this systemd stuff...
And devuan helps me with windows addiction so when im on the computer instead of playing windows games, i can learn to write bash scripts or get more into terminal, that's the difference smile.
Sometimes i wish wine or playonlinux hasn't existed, i think that playing open-source free games from linux synaptic package manager is not that big waste of time, especially if somebody has ever thought about writing own games, i think nowadays free open source is the way to go, however i am worried about steam, but then i believe that software shouldn't be written for profits in mind.

---redacted---  was going to recommend hooktube as an alternative for youtube, but apparently it's not as private as it used to be, but not as bad as youtube.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I just bought Quake from GOG.com and finished it over the holidays.
I play Unreal Tournament on occasion (used to be in a sniper clan).  I've played the Half-Life Series.  Ravenfield, used to play Red Eclipse.
I've bought quite a few of the Humble Bundles, mainly for my kids, but they have put out quite a few games that run natively on Linux. (moreso in the past though).
I have Steam installed, and there are quite a few games that you can play on Linux.  For a while when it first came out I play Ice Lakes, an ice-fishing game.
I also run Emulation Station, and can play the games I grew up with - Atari 2600 and Arcade games, as well as SNES and others.

I don't have a lot of time to invest in games, but they can be a good distraction from time to time.  I do enjoy a good puzzle or interesting game, like Zen Bound 2, TypeRider, Night Sky to name a few.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I play some games in Wine orand Dosbox, with the main one being Age of Empires 2 through Voobly. I've played Artemis on Wine just fine, as well as the ancient, Windows 3.1 release of Logical Journey of the Zoombinis in Win3.1 in Dosdox, on Devuan.

I confess my Devuan efforts have not included native gaming.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Having just reinstalled Devuan yesterday, these are the games that I have installed at the moment.
linux_games.png

Sometimes I play  other open source games, such as Super Maryo Chronicles, Ardentryst, Open Arena, and the games/mods/projects I have made as well. I don't bother with Wine, because it only takes a few seconds to boot into Windows which gives 100% performance in Windows games with 0% of the effort! smile

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I'm a sucker for games. It's the one realm where I tolerate proprietary software.

A handful of Steam games (mostly from Paradox Interactive), EVE Online under Wine now and then, and some SNES and GBA games using emulators.

And Wesnoth. Wesnoth is pretty much the *only* Free Software game that manages to hold my attention. I hope that changes in the near future.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

A lot of games from Steam via Proton/SteamPlay works fine (even those which doesn't work on windows anymore). The only thing is needed for now is to install recent Mesa and Vulkan drivers. Devuan is a good solution because Devuan Ceres has everything required for that.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Hi,
I do a  Teeworlds lanparty every thursday and friday at school. +10 i386 evos. I used lubuntu now migrated to Devuan.  Installed and demonstrated at the Devuan conference, thanks to Refracta made by Greg.
Teeworlds is a no-gore mulitiplayer shooter. It is opensource (C++) with easy configurable skin and map files.

There 50+ live servers to be found.
If you use old hardware - install glxgears to check if your graphics card it up to it.
