Hello sc0ttman,
I'd never come across Numptyphysics so thank you.

As a reward here's the game. LOL!
Download from http://sourceforge.net/projects/legacyoslinux/files/
Look in the "Legacy OS 2 Series Extra Packages" folder for game.

As is normal for all Legacy OS Package installs download the tar.gz, click on it, extract to / and reload the menu (Applications > Accessories > Misc > Reload menu)

Looks like a great game!

this may be outside the scope of your project but adding a few emulators can give you thousands more games...

Dosbox with dbgl provides a really easy way to play DOS games - "Another World/Out of this World" is a great DOS game... Also Civ II, many others...

But like many DOS games, they are better on the amiga. For amiga you can use various versions/forks of UAE...
There are some packages here: ppm.scottjarvis.com (see Emulation section)..

..some of these old games are honestly classic, very playable, challenging and great fun.

BTW, 'cave story' is still one the best little platformers on linux , you can get a patched/updated version at akita.scottjarvis.com .. And I do recommend xrick...

EDIT: I forgot, XSok (xsokoban) is a classic puzzler, it's TINY, very challenging, has many levels, and includes a level editor (well, can edit the level files, anyway!).

Also in the akita repo, gnu-go/cgoban are popular, old chinese board game progs... And xboard is a good chess frontend, forget the backend I used (fairymax?), but it's the lightest, and it's included in the xboard .pet. (i think)..

just for completeness, and so you dont have to trawl through them yourself, here are all games in the akita repo:

(you can search the livepackages5a.txt file in the repo for descriptions, sizes, etc)

Hello sc0ttman,
First thanks for highlighting the game numptyphysics as I'd hadn't come across that one. Xrick and dosbox are already in Gamer.

Also thanks you for the list of games and where to download them. A number are already in Gamer. I agree pipepanic can be addictive!

I see a number of titles I'd love to include but can't.

The underlying fact is any included games MUST RUN ON PENTIUM III computers with no special Graphic Card Drivers. If it isn't playable it isn't included.

John, it looks like Legacy 2.1 is already at the 1 CD limit with the games and software it already has. If it's going to get any bigger with all these additional games, would a 2 CD installation be viable?

That way, you could also add back the software to the distro that you had to cull from it to fit it onto a single CD in the first place.

Hello Colonel Panic,
That's one option or you could upload the extras to sourceforge
Download them from here

John,..
Hate to change the subject from the Legacy "Gamer",
but I'm still using the old original LegacyOS (2010) with updated Opera (on my older PIII).

I want to put it on my main computer (P4), but I have a widescreen (1366x768). The old Legacy doesn't seem to go that high. Is there any way to change the resolution to 1366x768,....or do I need to just keep it on my old box--and forget about the widescreen P4?

(again,..I'm sorry to change the subject from the "Gamer")
I'd LOVE to get the Legacy Gamer,...but I'm still stuck with this dialup (and can't go the time it would take to download).
Maybe when I visit my daughter soon --as she has that nice high speed thingy. Laughing

Hello nitehawk,
As I don't own a monitor like you have and always use 4:3 monitors I haven't done much experimenting with xorg. I know there's a hack which other forum members would know. As the target user will most likely be using an older monitor with Legacy I saw no need to support newer monitors.

Any forum members with knowledge in this area who want to share please do so as I'll include the information in the next release.

Thanks for the reply, John.
I'll just keep it on my secondary computer (my Dell PIII). It's working just great on there,...and I do use that old computer a LOT. LegacyOS has given it new life,..and makes it think it's a new computer, or something Laughing

Hi John:
I am having in trouble to boot the Legacy OS. tried the Legacy OS 2 as well as Legacy OS 2.1. I want to install it in P-III (1 Ghz Processor, 512 MB RAM and 20 GB HDD). When ever I tried to boot these puppies it tale too much time to load at copyin file to tmpfs or something like that. I think it may be due to 5120 MB ram as the ISO is too big. After that boot false with the Error Kernal panic... etc. I really dont have any idea? I tried it on 03 different PCs. Having the same problem. Please help me in the following matter.
1. How to install Legacy OS 2.1 using frugal method? (I tried windows unetbootin) but having the same above problem) also wat will be the entry in grub menu.lst ?
2. For full installation, Is it possible to install Legacy without burning the ISO ?
thnx in advance.
(UMAIR)

Hi umair, here is John's suggestion he has given to others. Uninstall some ram. You need to have 256 mb is what he suggests, I think. I'm sure John will see this and correct me if I'm wrong. Good luck. Thanks, Rob

Thnx for the info. I remember that I installed Legacy OS 2 successfully with 512 MB RAM. heres the link http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=424555969&t=70151
Anyhow I will set 256 MB RAM in my PC. Can u tell me that decreasing the RAM will work with Unitbootin ? As I have a doubt on my CD ROM Drive that its not working properly.

Hi umair, this is what he recommended IIRC. Make sure computer has 256 mb of ram, then do full install (or frual). After you have done that reboot and make sure it is working. Then shut down again and reinstall the ram, then reboot with the full 512 mb of ram. Thanks, Rob
