Thanks for the heads up Wosifat. Muggins has made so many game pets it's hard to keep track of them all! I'll add them later when I have time.

wosifat ,.....
does wine run good in boxpup? (it does in Puppy 4.1)....
but the win edition of the Pysol Fan Club solitaire runs really great for me under wine.

wosifat,

is it just that pysol & pysolfc don't work from the menu with boxpup, or are you getting errors on the commandline if you run, say, pysol?

Pysol and Pysol FC aren't the problem so much as Python. The dotpup won't work (says ""ERROR: Not enough free diskspace, you have MB, but needed are !", whatever that means." Have tried a few and get that message, but for some reason the dotpup for Wesnoth works.) When I try to run the Pysols it just says that it can't find Python, and I haven't been able to get it working right with any of the Python dotpets.

With Python-2.5.pup not extracting properly, the simple solution is to just rename it to Python-2.5.zip, then from the .zip file, extract FILESYSTEM.tbz to /, then see if pysol complains when run from the commandline.

No dice.
Pysol is looking for python in the /usr/bin directory. This didn't help that.

The Python-2.5.pup installs python to /usr/bin!

Or, have you tried using the python .pet, posted by big_bass in this thread? I just installed it, and pysol works fine with it.

Have you considered adding some real brief text explaining the value-added of items like the madplay audio .pet?

You mean something like a short description of package purpose? How does the site look like, on some PC's looks darker I don't know if it's because of monitor settings or what?

It looks fine on mine, perhaps it is the way that a particular monitor handles the background graphic? xorg vs xvesa or something in the HTML world where the "standards" keep changing ... not so standard ... ?

Here was my thought re. a little extra text (the headings are helpful) - I invented the descriptions:

Audio
madplay-frontend-0.1.pet">madplay-frontend-0.1.pet
(this .pet adds a mixer with techno-sounds)

Emulators
iNES-3.0.pet">iNES-3.0.pet
(this emulator makes the display look like an old arcade machine)

Adding brief descriptions makes it much easier for one to decide if the .pet meets their need and saves them having to do a search in hopes of finding a thread where the purpose may be clearly described.

You may also want to add the URL of a Puppy Forum thread which describes the purpose .pet just in case someone wants more info.

WDYT?
