GAME SUGGESTIONS WELCOME... Keep them small please! Wink

You might already have this but if not: From the winner of The International Obfuscated C Code Contest 2004 best game, vik1 a 8K racing-game (source code unreadable :-/).
Usage: vik1 ['a']['d'][#]
a - Advanced racing in a winter landscape
d - Racing in at night in the dark
# - Race track selection 1-3 are valid numbers
Here are a few examples:
Command line: Description:
vik1 Run track 1 at daytime in the summer
vik1 a Run track 1 at daytime in the winter
vik1 d Run track 1 at night in the summer
vik1 3 Run track 3 at daytime in the summer
vik1 d3 Run track 3 at night in the summer
vik1 ad2 Run track 2 at night in the winter

Note that the order in which the argument characters are entered is important. It is for example not possible to type ./vik1 da. (Well it is possible, but the result will not be as expected.)

The space key accelerates the car. Releasing the space key slowly reduces the speed. The left and right arrow keys are used to steer the car.

Sub_title: the NON i18n'd version works fine.. ??
 

Thanks goingnuts, that's great, sooo tiny lol.. I'll add that in.. I've been looking into how to shrink SDL games as well, Keef gave me some great tips - basically hacking the source to use more compressed images, sounds, etc ... Maybe even a mcb of (puzzle?) games, using shared images, sounds, etc... Or do it in reverse - one 'engine' plus a few skins/mods, etc.. Something for me to play with later.. Wink
___________________________________

On another note, I have been upgrading stuff to remove a few dependencies,
nothing major, but proving to be a real pain in the neck...

I have re-updated the i18n'd /usr/sbin/input-wizard that I got from rodin.s,
so that it now uses gtkdialog3 or later... BUT, it just won't work!!

The buttons do nothing - the ONLY changes from 01mickos version
(which works fine in Akita) is the gettext stuff...

Hmmm, any ideas anyone?? I'll attach it, so you can test! Wink

I don't wanna revert to 01mickos, then we lose i18n and 4 nice translations...

All of the following need Glade, in Akita: gtrayicon, galculator, ghunter, gins, glurp, ghasher, gtkdialog3, gtkdialog4, ssindex, ssconvert.. also maybe firewall-genie?? .... I might see what I can do, need to find alternatives for glurp, can remove the rest (ghunter, ghasher, etc).. ..Also used your one-liner to find the following are missing libs: ssindex, ssconvert, fluidsynth, foomatic-rip, bareview, gtmoz

I have removed the following: gtkdialog2, gtkdialog3, gtkdialog4, gins, ghunter, gaclulator, gperiodic, ssconvert, ssindex, ghasher, glurp, gtrayicon, trayfm, foomatic-rip, fluidsynth, bareview, gtkmoz, set-xftdpi

I have added, instead: gtkdialog4 (0.8.1, no glade deps), phash, set-xtfspi (Xdialog version)

It seems that Firewall_genie might be OK without glade installed.

I want to compile the following with gtk-builder, if possible: glurp, galculator, gtrayicon...
______________________________

Also, I've updated the PPM and browser installer, because I found a nice Google Chrome (but older) package that works in Akita.. It's in the repo.

I've also updated Viewnior to 1.1, from common repo, cause its got more features..

I looked through my disk for old copies of FBReader and I
found this.

File: ch-fbreader-0.10.7-i486.sfs
Size: 1.33 MB

http://www.datafilehost.com/download-5ab7bb2c.html


I must have downloaded it from the Murga forum, I don't even
remember.

It's in the old format. I tried to convert it to the new format
using your conversion software but it apparently didn't work.

I tried Barry's newest Wary and it's converter did work!! Laughing
I was able to get FBReader to run and open a rtf file.

I also rewrote my right click conversion of mp3 and wav files

I wanted a way of backing out of the conversion (for safety)
and I found that the old version of yaf splash
that I was using couldn't handle foreign languages.

I'll check out the updates... And you can find a smaller, updated fbreader package than the one you're using in the Akita repo, I just stuck it there Wink (the the sfs you posted doesnt need converting - I clicked on it and it mounted fine... then I loaded it on the fly OK as well...)

Sub_title: Akita feedback, suggestions
 

Delayed in getting feedback to you sc0ttman - pointy end of term is approaching fast...
Thanks for all your work here - really appreciate the Go programmes you've included in your repository - Akita is probably going to serve as a great babysitter when I have to use the laptop to occupy the kids (and the kids-at-heart). I can't seem to get XArchon working properly though - I can't select pieces to move. I note that it doesn't have a menu listing - but again, you probably have stated this in an earlier post and I've missed it..Have you had better luck running XArchon, but odds-on it's just me...
I haven't got any suggestions for other games at the moment, doing some sideways dredging in old DOS classics for the kids in an older laptop with only 48Mb Ram max, and without a joystick port Sad. On page 298-ish of ttuuxx's 214X thread I posted a link to a java game I'm quite fond of (Lords of Midnight) - I've collected other versions from the IceMark fanbase, but they're mostly for Win environments.

Do you have a suitable icon suggestion for opening emel2fm from wbar? Doesn't seem to be provided in Akita at the moment.

Still 'no go' with Frisbee - but the other wi-fi managers lock'n'load without any problem. I don't think that it's the wpa_supplicant file I cut'n'pasted across from PolarPup003, as I can 'enable' Frisbee wireless, review and modify profiles etc but no luck on it actually selecting and displaying a IP address for wlan0. Same sort of behaviour happens with Exprimo 5x9, but I haven't made detailed notes.

Really appreciate all the bookmarks etc you've included with FireDog3.6. However I've run into a pretty perennial problem I have whenever I install a new browser pet: how do I make file associations (within mozilla) so that Rox is enabled to launch "download location" or a recently downloaded pet? Seems to be hidden in the normal selection pathways that enable other file-opening associations in the Application Launcher. I just haven't been able to track any how-to on this matter using the well-minded search etc, and it's got me stumped. (I think that I might suggest to Icyos that he make a how-to video on the steps involved.)

SoftMaker2008 is working like a dream - I just re-used my old registration details (from an earlier install that led to me purchasing SoftMaker2010 - but for Win Sad ) and cobbled some icons together for wbar2.2. Apart from Presentations - which has an opening hiccup with running as user 'root' I haven't solved yet -everything opens super-fast in Akita Smile.

More in the "workhorse" mode I've been having troubles with disciples' PDFshuffler http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=45826&start=45. I kinda thought that the Akita environment would be pre-configured for such an application (and after I downloaded poppler-0.12.4.2 from the Wary5 repository via your PPM, qt4-4.5.3.1-1-w5 was also installed as a co-dep -seems it might work). I'll have to reboot to see if it works, so I'll post this message in the interim.

Cheers Smile

UPDATE: hmmmm could you please give me a hint on how I can get VLC to load Flash-chess and other swf's ? Can't shake exam-mode at the moment, brain and reality not syncing for me...
No luck with pdfshuffler for me at the moment. All dependencies check out ok, but no cigar. Might have to go back to the deb that disciple posted on SourceForge. Guess I'm going to have to go back to XP and IrfanView to combine my pdfs and images from across various lecture material, generating a single PDF to print how I want it at the University's printery.

EDIT: Eeeerk (slaps forehead) - Flash-chess working beaut AFTER I actually installed Flash (!) Tried to ignore those 'update Flash?' messages - reminded me of my Windows environs and all that needy bloatware I have on it... GOM plays SWF files 'natively', I haven't really tried in VLC (win or linux). Installed the latest python dev from the W5 repository in an effort to get pdfshuffle working, but no dice just yet. Undoubtedly I've taken the long way round with it somehow - even converted the SourceForge deb to a pet and all indications are that everything is in smoothly - just not working....
And I can get XArchon working too after a false start - I used to whup it's Arch back when I had it on an ol' Apple II clone - but it seems the whupping is now firmly from the other's foot.

PS using a T60 Lenovo widescreen, 2GHz with 2Gb Ram.

Haha, good.. Must be an old laptop, right? Or Akita wouldn't work... Is it one with a Radeon GPU? Have you tested the ATI stuff in the repo?

Nope, it's not just you, I have it on good authority the package works, and the game is famous, but I never heard of it and couldn't move any pieces in the game!! Rolling Eyes lol

I'm still hunting around the "Linux Game Tome" website - searching all the SDL games, which do NOT require OpenGL... Seems to be a good way to find small, but good games.. I like 'pipepanic', in the Akita repo (highscore 3410 Wink)..

That reminds me, I will get a Java pet into the repo as well... Will search for the game... Also FreeCol uses Java, I think, and that's a good game.

I always just go with something in /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/, or use "Google Images", limited to 128x128, if I want something specific..

I'm still (pointlessly) hoping someone like rerwin or tempestuous takes a look at Akita and remove any problems with drivers, udev, networking, hotplugging, etc... It's all beyond me at the moment...

I know - it's not in the menus!! But not my fault, just was not in that Firefox version that FireDog is based on... Anyway... You must right click on a saved file, in the "Downloads" tab, and do it from there.... Akita Beta4 will have a script called 'roxuri', and I will update the FireDog package to use it automatically.. So clicking on things in the downloads tab will work fine.. Soon as I figure out how to add that setting to a .pet..

(RoxURI is here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=364264#364264)

Glad it's working for you, nice and fast!!
I tried Slacko all day yesterday, Akita is (generally) faster on my PC... Smile

I can add a wrapper script to the presentation thing, so that it runs as spot, I think... Had to do that with FreeCiv as well...

Something like:
Code:
su spot
exec /usr/bin/presentation_thing
exit 0

No, that was long ago, and for Slackware. Smile It was libopenjpeg that I first used, for back then it looked like having promise; when it later became apparent the OpenJPEG project was going nowhere fast, I added libjasper based implementation, for the latter, while having undocumented, and exceedingly ugly, API, is the only widespread implementation of JPEG2000.

And the recent changes to mtPaint are only those lines marked with "+" in the commit diff. Smile

Sub_title: Akita feedback, suggestions
 

Thanks again sc0ttman -
I've just replied to a query on your Arcade Puppy 10 thread - but I've probably not provided the right solution - hope that you might be able to shed some more light on apparent kernel-freezing behaviour...
To cover your reply really briefly on many issues:

I haven't yet tested the ATI gear you have in your repro - I hope to get back to that when various smoke and fires clear in my non-digital life.

Thanks for that - that's what I've been doing for various apps - but I guessed wrong that you had emelfm2 in - it was just an artefact from wbar2.2 config presets.

Thanks for the heads-up on RoxURI too - that solves a bit of a mystery for me.

Never used it, will check it out...

I actually tracked down a copy of the pdfshuffler.sfs on (dingo's?) dokupuppy repository. Alas it is sfs3 and I wasn't able to work out how to convert it to sfs4 - your's and a lot of other puplets I have loaded on various machines all lack that ability to retro-fit...
Wound up going back to XP to use IrfanView to accomplish that goal - convert a string of PDFs of single pptx slides into extracted TIF files, copy'n'paste together into ordered 3-slides-tall TIFS and convert them back to a single multipage PDF. Bumped up resolution along the way (from the 96 dpi originally provided) to ensure the final printed output on A4 paper, portrait, looked sharp. Bit time-consuming, but is rapidly accomplished due to IrfanView's ability to retain the setting that you're working with (like size you want your canvas expanded, where and how you want to save your modified images etc). Just wish I knew of a good Linux equivalent to IrfanView...

I just uninstalled it and then re-loaded the pet to see how I might have done it. Press 'esc' (if you need to) to get the grey title screen with the menubar (Game/Settings/Help). Click on Settings>Define Players, and ensure that any one you choose is selected as "Player is human", while your opposition is "Player is Computer". Click on "Configure human player" to make sure that you select 'mouse' if you haven't got a joystick, Ok and Ok to get back to the title screen, and then up to Game>New. Should work Smile
Thanks again for all your helpful responses,
Cheers!

Puppyt, good point about the wbar icons and settings on first load, I will update it... Emelfm should not be in there...

And I will probably re-package Xarchon, will either a help dialog, or set it up to use 'relative mouse' by default...

Aitch Smile

Akita uses sfs3 by default - it should not need to be converted.. Click on it to mount it, or right click and choose 'Load SFS' ... Either should work fine... If not, not sure why, I will test in a moment...

And that exact SFS converter is already included in Akita, I also added a right click option for it as well Smile

I did come across a couple of actual sfs4 that would not convert to sfs3, but never an sfs3 that would not convert to sfs4.... hmmm... EDIT: Forgot, sfs 3.0 and 3.1 are not compatible.. Puppy2 uses 3.0, later puppies use 3.1

But I will probably upgrade mksquashfs4 because the new one Barry posted supports xz compression, and a lot of puppies are using that now, so we may see more xz compressed SFS files popping up around the forum... Maybe after that I will need to update the 'filemnt' script, I'm not sure
