Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

So how many games have you currently installed on your HDD??

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

Hmm, bunch of games under DOS and old roms running under Mednafen. Also builds of games I've mentioned here within the thread! Some classics I like under Wine, for example SpellForce 2. smile

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

Ha, a nice game and such good looking. Remembering me to my all-time favorite Age of Empire back the days! And yes: Loving it in network sessions with my dad and my nephew. big_smile

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

Okay? Looks interesting. Could you please share more insights about that kind of game?

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

I have been recently playing battle for wesnoth only, playing on hardest difficulty, it's really nice game played on hardest difficulties... I managed to complete first campaign (the brother one, 4 mission one) now i am in the middle of the elven one (7 mission)
tongue

This game makes a lot sense played on hardest difficulty... Having villages flagged and defending them against enemy to have gold income to buy more army is important now... And also i realised that it's important to stick together as well... ;P.
Sometimes AI is dumb and decides to attack with boss champion that needs to  be killed, i can then send troops around him and finish him...

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

This is another game that is able to be played on Hyperbola wink
It's mmorpg like Stendhal, but proprietary...

It's not very libre though
requires fee to unlock all stuff like premium cities monsters etc.
pretty much pay to play

Surprisingly it runs on Hyperbola ;P

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

Nice, but having a look onto a possible listing (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_o … ideo_games) there is much to do regarding really open, libre games under GNU/Linux. And I think this won't be solved within the next years as even the FSF is onto the false impression that Saga of Ryzom is really free and open. Well, surprise: It is not. Most content is licensed under CC-BY-SA, but the sound and music is not to be found. After all there is even no possibility creating an own, local server for playing this game with friends in the network for example. So gaming is one interesting part, but nevertheless it is an illusion when talking about "freedom" especially under GNU/Linux. Not talking about all those projects being hosted on Github, which is just another proprietary platform. So at first for all and for the greater good of having a decentralized, libre software: Delete Github, once and for all!

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

Yeh well there are two really bad concerns

After ddos attacks in 2013 their website uses cloudfare/google captcha
If you want to create new character these days you need to solve captcha too...
I have created some of them back in a day when that wasn't required...

Sadly enough there is even manaplus mmorpg available in community, some main servers on it require solving google captcha to create account as well...
This is quite crap...

Fortunately google captcha isn't required to log in to the account on the website like for some other games... For example popular mmorpg runescape, if you want to log in and buy membership or change password, you need to solve captcha...

But well, i am quite surprised that game like that runs so well on hyperbola... It's nice cuz now for me using different web browsers than Iceweasel-UXP is pain in the ass :-)...

64

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

Yes, Hyperbola can run many games. Also I like to test very much. But until today I don't get it why exactly so many users are onto platforms like "Steam" for example or think that Github is a "good place" to host source-code repositories. In fact Microsoft has begun to look at notable projects, either for buying them or take action otherwise in the first place. It is time fo get away, getting really more independent action without all those big names.

Doesn't mean they are just "evil" in the first place, it's just about their ignorance where more bad things can happen. And "money" is major driver for everything. So good people there at Google or Microsoft cannot do a thing about it: They have no further lobby when it comes to "money"!

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

Not just you don't understand...

most stuff that is available on AUR for example, are hosted on github... This is quite uncomfortable for me...
Steam well... It offers some games, or games u can buy with few clicks, it's convenience. If you have modern PC and credit card you dont have t oleave your house.
But because of that now whenever i go to the shop because i am interested in buying some real copy for game, most of them have requirement of having steam account... hmm. It is very lame... I pay for a game and i need to register on steam to play it.
But as far as i read on web, some major online games that come from Valve (Steam) like Dota2 or newest Counter Strike requires your phone number... This is a bit out of order...

It's a matter of why people agree to give away their personal data without any second thoughts or wondering if it's right.

66

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

I had many discussions since the first release of Steam - meaning the platform itself. I had even some insights in the later 2000s when giving that a tryout and yes: Giving away data is the correct definition as Steam itself can track you with your playtime for example. Nevertheless it's also about DRM, but people tend to give some lame excuses in our times. After all you don't own any copy and any data, even your "account" is nothing more than being a nice, lovely "favor". That's one reasoning and enough for me to quit after some weeks in the mentioned time above, staying onto my criticism. Same with all about Github: Those big names are nothing "helpful" as it is all about data, nothing more.

Another proprietary game that runs on Hyperbola Gnu/Linux

It's old school runescape

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

I am really paranoid about playing a game from torrents,

I might be misinterpreting here, but from personal experience, I can say that
if I wanted to run a torrented Windows game, or any other questionable software
for some purpose, I have a "gaol" user specifically for that purpose. gaol's
only group is (ideally) itself. Nothing important is kept in its home directory,
making it in my mind, an easy and safe way to purge any malicious files residing
in gaol's home.

Re: Games under GNU/Linux-libre

Gaming under WINE with Blades of Time, DRM-free version:

https://wtf.roflcopter.fr/pics/mE7wlV2z/oiBJrgJh.png
https://wtf.roflcopter.fr/pics/FPurpcmf/eWBiClY1.png

Yes, this is done with a free, libre operating-system, no further modifications needed on the wineprefix built and on a ThinkPad X220 with Coreboot, as free as possible! Yes, the game itself is not free, but this is another demonstration about what is possible without getting too far into proprietary hard- and software.

How well did Blades of Time run for you ? In terms of settings and frame rate.

So far no further problems running the game. I don't really mind having more than 30 fps as it stays already proprietary content. Without DRM finally, but proprietary and it is nice to play for some time but I prefer way much older games as I don't see no further difference and change in the gameplay. Antialiasing and Parallax-Mapping are completely disabled, everything else is set to highest values. The game runs without further problems!
