The proprietary game that broke your heart Anonymous 01/15/2017 (Sun) 19:10:31 [Preview] No. 207 [Reply]
Let's face it, we all have at least one. Name the games you had to say goodbye to.

Garry's Mod. Performance was shit, Steam was resource-hogging turd dropping me out of game when it lost own connection for muh DRM. Garry's Mod days were over for me when DX8 support was broken to unplayability and thanks to Steam I "had" to play on 10 fps (in DX 9 mode) or leave. Or upgrade computer like good goy. I enjoyed game not as is, but with awesome addons like Wiremod. Shame there's no FOSS game that implements same idea of multiplayer sandbox.

tl;dr don't use proprietary software, it will fuck you over in one way or another

Battle for middle earth, it's the only game my friend will play. He tried playing wz2100 but was such a fucking cry baby when he lost, he said he will only ever play bfme. I need a new friend I think.

wz2100 Anonymous 01/19/2017 (Thu) 10:14:44 [Preview] No. 214 del
I tried introducing friend to Warzone 2100 while myself being fucking n00b (played Alpha and part of Beta campaign only). We played once against "easy" bot on some 3P map and were pretty much annihilated. Friend did not liked it. What did go wrong? It was no bases, medium energy, no scavs. "easy" bot somehow quickly spammed trucks all over map :/

Anonymous 01/19/2017 (Thu) 23:08:17 [Preview] No. 215 del
What I like about wz2100 is the many layers to the strategy. Obviously claiming power resources and building power plants is important, but then also carefully allocating those resources to research and manufacture can be tricky and requires careful attention. Manufacture too much and your units could be obsolete, research too much and your units could be too few.
Even on easy, the ai knows where to find resources and knows the tech tree so it doesn't waste research. I suggest you find and destroy its' resources to pull its' units from its' base, then attack when its' resources are low and its' units are stretched out across the map. Also put research into upgrading your power plants, it gives more resources to work with which makes it easier.

Lugaru just relicensed their assets, they are now free to download!
This does bode well for the sequel and its' eventual license too, I think.

Anyway, if you don't have it already, you have no excuse now.

8ch/lv new board owner Anonymous 01/15/2017 (Sun) 18:07:15 [Preview] No. 206 [Reply]
The old lv board on pigchan has a new board owner.
The only change made I can see thus far is to remove the link to endchan in the sticky. A shame, but good luck to the new BO. I am interested in what he may bring to the board.

How did old BO lost "ownership"?

I much prefer endchan. I don't trust Jim or his affect on the community there. I never post there anymore anyway so someone has taken up the effort for the board. I won't dispute it or anything but people should know, it won't be me running that board anymore.

ChaosEsque Anthology Anonymous 06/02/2016 (Thu) 14:36:57 [Preview] No. 42 [Reply]
ChaosEsque Anthology is a first person shooter. It is a standalone modification of Xonotic which includes extended weapons, maps, vehicles, buildable buildings, mounted weapons, spell casting, monsters, player characters, textures, and game modes.

It has over 100 maps. Some are futuristic, some are ancient, and some are medieval. A few evoke platform games such as sonic, others follow a style more akin to diablo. Some are static maps, others are randomly connected.

There is something to fit your mood. There are mutators that can add mounted weapons in any map, buildings, monsters, foliage, hazards, and even balloons and bumpers. You can fight with futuristic weapons, medieval weapons, and /or hand to hand combat (over 100 weapons). There are also many vehicles (and a mutator to spawn them in maps that do not have them, as is tradition (as you can see)).

You can also set each team to start with different specific weapons if you want to test a theory that you could defeat a well equipped military force with your bolt action rifle or crossbow. Same with vehicles and mounted weapons spawning (you can set which spawn near which team in CTF etc). You can drink wine, potions, learn magic, read scrolls, so on and so forth.

The goal, and much of this has been reached, is to not limit the player.

"contributions" LOL

you call that shit a game? nobody wants to play this crap.

You fucks kept quite for the time my portfolio page was up. You couldn't argue with the volume of work (3d models, music, textures).

I don't give a shit about what you want to play. I would prefer that you wouldn't play anything: if I had my way you'd be dead: executed under the law written in deuteronomy. I work on the game for myself. I'm glad this bothers you.

New version out btw: 105.

Oh and: Trump Won.

Anonymous 01/11/2017 (Wed) 19:11:28 [Preview] No. 204 del
Release 105:
New vehicles imported and added (spacecraft) with lasers and pulse lasers as armaments,

New entities for mappers to put down buildings in their maps (building_sctiles, etc), many entities added to netradiants entities.ent file (vehicles, food, drink, nades, etc).

Bugfixes, cleanup.

If you haven't tried the OpenRA TS mod yet, you really should. It's in the main dev atm and damn it's stable.
git clone https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA.git
cd OpenRA
make dependencies

On trisquel I installed mono-complete to make it.

Gaming without X Anonymous 11/12/2016 (Sat) 01:28:10 [Preview] No. 165 [Reply]
Some games can output video to the framebuffer, allowing you to launch and play them from the tty, without any display server running. This usually requires some tinkering to get to work because /dev/input devices are set to 660 root:input, so you can't access them directly without being in the input group. You shouldn't add yourself to the input group though, that's a bad idea. What I do is this:
$ sudo chown :input /usr/bin/game
$ sudo chmod g+s /usr/bin/game
Now the game executable will be launched as if you were in the input group even though you're not. If the game is libre, then giving it unrestricted access to your input shouldn't be an issue.
Games I know to work like this are:
>widelands (requires SDL_VIDEODRIVER=fbcon)
>retroarch (I know the games themselves aren't libre, but the emulator is and that's what counts)

Feel free to add to the list if you know of any more.

I mainly emulate ps1 games nowadays. Retroarch reports stable 60 fps. I just compared how it looks in X and in fb and I see no difference. This leads me to believe that fb is quite capable of displaying whatever you throw at it, as long as the cpu can keep up or you get hw accel working as that anon said.

xonotic next then

Anyone tried the directfb option? Directfb documentation states it also handles input. I am interested in how it compares with fbcon. It promises hardware acceleration too.

the main problem iirc is that the main implementation of opengl for linux is GLX which has hard X dependency, nvidia blobs still need X for opengl unless you're going to do EGL with EGL streams.

Installed it just to test, couldn't get it to work.

Heard about it, but never tried it before. I have no idea how it's supposed to work, there's virtually no documentation, and trying to run the supplied executables (which I can only guess the purpose of) results in a segfault.

This was in a recent freegamer article:

My only point of contention is the Linux instructions...
>The Wwise authoring tool doesn't run on Linux. Use Wwise on another platform to build the Linux soundbanks.
Going to try and run this in wine to get it compiled. Kind of annoying though, very vague instruction.
