Is it still correct that for SuperTux one needs the 7.36MB .PET plus your SDL .PET and xorg_OPENGL and xorg_DRI_MODULE?

(I read that the latter two are acquired from PetGet and they install to my-roxapps. Is that also correct?)

I am running 4.11-Normal in a Frugal install with xorg managing the video.

EDIT 1: I used PetGet and loaded the xorg_ package. Then I downloaded dotpuphandler-0.0.4-2 and loaded it. Then I downloaded and loaded Barrage (which is supposed to contain the only remaining dependencies - SDL and SDL_mixer -- though it seems odd that the dependencies may not be loaded without a game attached to them). Then I ran SuperTux. I receive an error that it is missing dependencies: libSDL_image-1.2.so.0, libSDL_mixer-1.2.so.0, and libSDL-1.2.so.o -- Where might these be located, please?

Interesting idea JohnB. Were you thinking of a collection of games on a SFS or jut one game per SFS?

Is there a pup2sfs?


Had a brief glance around the forum. Doesn't seem to be one as far as I know, but I haven't really looked.

Great selection of games. Would it be possible, particularly for the larger games to load them as a SFs file which you could include or exclude on boot up. Will it work and will it avoid stretching pupsave files? There is pet2sfs to do a conversion. Is there a pup2sfs?

Thanks for your understanding Ttuuxxx. I guess I'll just see what happens to this post, but if someone does still want to take over, my offer is still standing.

Is there anyone out there that would like to take over? If anyone would, I'll email (upload, PM, whatever) you the BBcode I used to make the game entries, so basically all you have to do is post them yourself and maintain and start adding to them from there. I'll also send the template I used. Then I'll mark this post for deletion, and well, everything should be sorted. Maybe some else will "catch the vision" and list all Pup's games.

How about keep the post and update it when you have time, You started something really good here and It would be a shame to delete/give up on it. Even 1hr a week would be all it needs, You are under no pressure to get this done. Take your time, I've been building my next living water release for about 3+ months.
When ever I get inspired I work on it.
stick with it, we'll be around. Wink

Wow! Cool! Thanks for the responses and encouragement guys. I really like some of the ideas you guys are giving. I really like the "puppy arcade" website idea, that sounds sweet as, I'm starting to picture some real cool graphics and fun ideas... but I'm not so sure how much time I'll have in the near future, so I'll probably have to come back to earth and set up a wiki page. Confused I think really the only way we'll really ever get an up to date repository of anything is if more than one person is involved.

Well heres an idea, Maybe ask Eric from puppylinux.ca for some server space to host all the games. Then just make a few web pages and upload them.Then just post some links to the webpages on the forum/wiki simple .

I think its a great idea and well worth doing, So far its working well. You sparked interest, which is always good.
Some real thought should be placed into this.
Maybe a website like puppy-arcade or just keep going with this as a start:)
ok then next maybe some sort of category list.
arcade, sports, cards, bored games, strategy
It also would be nice to have them all in one place and the pups converted to pets.

ps keep up the great work Wink

That's a great idea
I have been looking at all the listed games.
There are quite a few forum threads
There is a Puppy flying simulator version - two Puppy games disks (I think based around the 2.xx series) and Marks 'Hurt me plenty'
http://www.puppylinux.org/downloads/puplets/hurt-me-plenty-01

Also be aware of Flash game links
Java games (OK needs some processing power)

I want to try out my creative surround sound system
which I recently got from freecycle.com

Great thread - good job Very Happy

I think its a great idea, and follows on from tronkel's earlier effort at listing Puppy games that don't require extra library support.

May I suggest the best way is to create a games blog at http://www.puppylinux.org and use that as the central reference repository. Alternatively you could add it to the wiki space in the same location if you wanted others to help maintain the list.

Please do go ahead with it though. It is things like this that keep Puppy popular across a broad range of users. In the absence of a central repository for all applications - and that may be coming sooner rather than later thanks to tombh, Pizzasgood and zigbert - the blog and wiki spaces can temporarily fill the void.

Cheers
