ace-penguins

I'm interested in packaging up ace-penguins for fedora.  At the
very least, I want this for myself.  But I see no reason why I
shouldn't share this with others.

http://www.delorie.com/store/ace/

ace of penguins used to have a silly license.
The current version is GPL.

Nikki and Robots

I was looking at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Games

It lists Nikki and Robots as available but it isn't. The page tells you
it needs work so I'm not surprised to find something like that. Is
there anyway to know when it was removed and why? The company behind
the game is apparently gone. I thought maybe it was the CC-BY-SA
license on the levels but that appears to be acceptable for content.
The source can be found on github.

Blackvoxel


Hello, folks.

I was at the LSM meeting last week at Beauvais in France and was introduced to
the two developers of Blackvoxel, a game that recently became open-source. The
developers are interested in getting their game packaged in the GNU/Linux
distributions.

I've added Blackvoxel to the wishlist on the wiki. If anyone could find them to
make an package, I know it will be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Emmanuel

LordsAWar version 0.3.0 released!

Hi folks!

LordsAWar! version 0.3.0 has been released with the following changes:

 * added new scenario Duel Of The Gods.
 * added new items to burn bridges, charm monsters in ruins, call for angels, send disease to a city, banish
worms, raise defenders, and persuade neutral city.
 * added program to upgrade old versions of lordsawar saved games.
 * added program to import maps from Warlords 2.
 * audited battle probabilities in comparison with Warlords 2.
 * scenario editor can now export the map to a PNG file.
 * added fight order editor to the scenario editor.
 * updated to gtkmm version 3.
 * now using unicode everywhere. migrated from std::string to glib::ustring.
 * migrated from libtar to libarchive.

Fixed various gameplay bugs:

 * heroes were never showing up as women.
 * fixed bug where clicking the smallmap repeatedly and quickly would crash the game.
 * fixed bug in joining stacks in the scenario editor.
 * fixed many bugs in network play, thanks to Roger R.

Anyway it's definitely time for a new package.  I've compiled and tested it on Fedora 22 so it should go pretty
easy for you.  I think Bruno packaged it last time, but I'm not sure if he's still involved or not.

The tarball is located here: http://download-mirror.savannah.gnu.org/releases/lordsawar/lordsawar-0.3.0.tar.gz

Anyway, this is an exciting new version, so thanks for helping people play LordsAWar!

Sponsor Needed: Bt Builder

I've been trying to get Bt Builder packaged for Fedora. I believe I've
fixed all the problems with the package. I just need a sponsor.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1079064

Bt Builder is an computer rpg builder in the style of the old Bard's
Tale games. It implements all the functionality from the Bard's Tale
Construction Set and several features beyond that. The sample games are
not very compelling at the moment as I've focused most of the effort on
the engine.

List moderation change

Fedora gamers,

The number of spam messages that get caught and held by the games
listserve software has grown beyond what I can manage through manual
intervention.  Currently, when a non-member sends a message to the list,
the message gets placed in a hold queue until a moderator (eg me) logs
in to accept, reject, or discard the message.  I am changing this policy
so that non-member postings are to be automatically rejected, with a
message that they will need to subscribe before they can post to the
list.  There will be no more hold queue.

This should be transparent to all of you, and will make my life just a
little bit easier.

OpenRA packages

Hi there,

this is a starting point to package OpenRA in Fedora, a great clone of
once famous strategy games available for another operation system only.

Unfortunately, the developers decided to write all in Mono. So there is
the issue: Very few people care about Mono'd Fedora, as it seems.

I would be happy to find some reviewer for my package requests. The
main goal currently is to unbundle all the libraries that are shipped by
upstream in precompiled assemblies into the source tarball.

1159091 Review Request: openra - Libre/Free Real Time Strategy project
that recreates the famous Command & Conquer titles

1166916 Review Request: fuzzynet - Fuzzy Logic Library for Mono

1166897 Review Request: mono-nat - Mono library for automatic port
forwarding

Let's start with fuzzynet. mono-nat is already retired and should be
reanimated to be alive in Fedora. The main requrest is on hold due to
not finished with unbundling of all the libs.

R.

Tecnoballz 0.93 dropsgid

Hi all,
    after about 7 years upstream has released a new version of Tecnoballz:
http://linux.tlk.fr/games/TecnoballZ/download/

Unluckily the code changed a lot and I don't have the knowledge to adapt this patch to the new version.

I hope someone can help me once again.

Thanks,

Andrea

UFO: Alien Invasion

Hello. I believe it is time to add subj game to fedora. It was before in  
rpmfusion because of copyright issues which are now fixed. I already have  
.spec files and made packages for latest version 2.5. Everything seems to  
be working. What I should do next in order to get ufoai to the official  
fedora?

Review Request: Hyperrogue

Hi,

I just packaged a little rogue like, if anyone have time to spend for review it [1]... Thank you :)

Alexandre.

P.S. It's my first "official" package for fedora, so I don't guarantee anything, but it seems to me not very difficult.

Alive?

Hi there,

is this games SIG still alive? I see that on this list and in the wiki,
there is very little activity.

Please let me shortly introduce myself. I use XFCE and Fedora since some
years, and now I am starting to provide packages by myself, to give back
something into the community.

My gaming packages so far:
dreamchess - already in the repo
gnurobbo - already in the repo (waits for some karma)
tuxfootball - waits for review
paintown - waits for review

Regards,
R.
