Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I play Endless Sky, which in Debian (and in extension, Devuan) for some reason is still in 0.9.8 both in stable and unstable, despite the current upstream now at 0.9.12. Thankfully building a newer .deb package for 0.9.12 is not hard. If you played Escape Velocity before, you will surely love Endless Sky.

I also play Minetest (with the MineClone 2 mods), console Tetris (bastet and tetris-bsd in bsdgames), Pacman (pacman4console), and Snake (the one included in bsdgames). All of them are available in Devuan repos.


Maintainer of the iwd package. If the package starts falling behind 2 versions upstream, please notify me!

You can also find me on the Pale Moon forums. I develop XUL add-ons for Pale Moon.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

i dont play much games these days but i wanted to share some interesting projects with you
they work fine on devuan, but in both cases you need the original game files somewhere on your disk

OpenRTC2 lets you play the original RollerCoaster Tycoon 1+2 natively under linux, with enhaced graphics and other tweaks
it also has a multiplayer with up to 64 players

CorsixTH is similar but for the classic Theme Hospital game

~ late 90s / early 2000s isometric graphics were peak gaming ~

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I play Kerbel Space Program with several patches, especially Real Solar System and KOS (Kerbal operating system - scripted take offs, etc..). It's on Chimaera with latest kernel, mono (I know, I know...) so that I can play the Linux version.  It's awesome creating rockets to blast off, orbit earth, goto the moon, descend, etc... ).
I also play OpenRTT (rail road Tycoon) several Linux flavor real-time-simulations, etc..

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Short Answer; Aisleriot Solitare or Tetravex for quickies. Recently Widelands, but currently chasing up stuff like Runescape, Rift. Tera & WoW, which at various times I've had running under Linux.

Simce i've been retired($ work) for 15 years and wider community projects (~5 years) and have no interest in the idiot box mindless podcast, there is only the garden, etc and games. Especially when it is inclement weather.

Currently, Linux has a whole host of 'native' games to locate(aptitude search games) and explore. Many are historical and thus non-taxin g on any system. a lot suffer from lack of documentation. A few, variously do not work.

If you are looking to install MS  OS games, then search PlayOnLinux first as there whereitall may be there to just run and enjoy. If you have any scripting abilities and there is nothing there for your game, look for something similar and see if you can adapt it. My fiddle today was rolling a beta script to install Skydome ( a newy from Gamingo/Trion Games) installed enough to be able to install it under PoL and decide it isn't my type of game ( Ranked FPS blech!).

Unfortunately, the offerings unde PoL are very much shiting sands as distros change and worse, the game requirements change, so ATM WoW BattlelNet doesn't install and work.

At one stage there were CDs/DVDs of commercial Linux games where the only trouble was changing libraries. This seems to have all disappeared undera flood of arcade style shooters through Steam, which requires a subscription. If using Steam, Gog, Humble Bundle and the like is your style, then Lutris is probably what you could use to centralise all their games..

I still play nethack. And sometimes I set up a docker container for a drunken round of Suicide Linux.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Just found out that Unreal Tournament 2004 came with a Linux installer
(only included in the DVD version with the Atari branding)
Works fine on chimaera!
I only needed to install libstdc++5
and to get sound working start it like this: aoss ./ut2004

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Some recent additions for me are Quake III from GOG:

# apt install game-data-packager
$ game-data-packager gog

Works better than under Windows, which is as it should be.

And I also bought Dirt Rally 2.0 while it was on sale (£8 with all the DLC!) and it works perfectly under Steam with Proton (experimental branch). It is a *superb* racing simulator but also properly hard — I've only just managed to win a stage against the AI after 20 hours of practice with the difficulty on 1/100. Epic.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

AisleRiot Solitaire, best card game on linux imo. I used to play all those 3d games years ago on ps1,2 and 3. Not anymore though. Hoas, I used to play Colin Mcrae rally on ps1 when it first came out religiously, took me a good 6 months to beat it. The rally games were the best imo.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

Yeah, I agree. Very challenging but also very satisfying.

Here's a clip to give an idea of how it plays: https://www.hooktube.com/watch?v=aHaMrzAVgNg

The graphics have moved on somewhat since the PS1 days :-)

Indeed.  Occasionally I mess with Swell Foop though.  Good for visual spatial acuity.

Re: What games do you play on Devuan??

I play AisleRiot too, beside gnome-mahjongg, Solitaire Klondike (xpat2) and cuyo. That's it.
