I installed freedroid and glest (actually MegaGlest). Most all of the games are in the Arch repos including Wolfenstein. There are lots of different versions/mods of Wolfenstein ET available on the Arch repos.

Thanks for the link!  I installed LinCity (which was available through Synaptic, incidentally) and got totally distracted by playing it for the last few hours.   :hysterical:

Arch is based on Debian isn't it? That would explain all those games being in the repositories. Bruno once sent me a copy of Debian it included 14 cds, there was everything I could imagine in there.I was kind of hoping that Yo Frankie! would be in the repos for PCLinuxOS but so far no luck. I don't know if any of those games are there actually.

No Archlinux is not based upon Debian, if anything it was originally based upon Crux Linux:Arch Compared to Other Distributions

Quote

Judd Vinet, a Canadian programmer and occasional guitarist, began developing Arch Linux in early 2001. Its first formal release, Arch Linux 0.1, was on March 11, 2002. Inspired by the elegant simplicity of Slackware, Polish Linux Distribution, and CRUX, and yet disappointed with the lack of package management; Vinet built his own distribution on similar principles as those distros. But, he also wrote a package management program called pacman, to automatically handle package installation, removal, and upgrades.
https://wiki.archlin...y_of_Arch_LinuxArchlinux has 8,779 official packages and another 26,748 in the community repos (AUR).

Thanks for the information. The fact that it was developed by a Canadian makes it even more interesting, at least to a fellow Canadian :hysterical:

agreeing (kinda) with wiki.archlinux.org,the gnu/linux distro timeline by a. lundqvist shows arch as a branch of crux, and crux as an independent node (no father node).

This link was posted on the PCLinuxOS forum but I think these games should work in most versions of Linux. I did find some of them already in the repos for PCLinuxOS, not all of them though. I installed Dosbox but so far can't seem to save in any of the games which isn't great when playing a sim or rpg.

"Play Bioware's Infinity Engine Games PlaneScape Torment, Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale Natively on LinuxBioware's Infinity Engine was home to many great games in past that totally defined RPG game genre with deep storyline, engaging gameplay, isometric graphics, and dungeons and dragons rules based gameplay. Almost all the games under infinity engine became hugely popular and are even today considered to be best games in their genre with huge dedicated fan base.Games Based on Infinity Engine:    * Bladur's Gate I and expansion pack Tales From The Sword Coast    * Planescape : Torment    * Icewind Dale I and expansion packs: Heart of Winter and Trials of Luremaster    * Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and expansion Throne of Bhaal    * Icewind Dale IIThese all time classic games can be played natively on Linux thanks to project called GemRB.About GemRBGemRB (Game Engine Made with Pre-Rendered Background) is a "port" (actually a new implementation) of the original Infinity Engine  to Linux/Unix, Mac OSX and Windows with some enhancements. "http://www.ubuntuvib...gine-games.htmlThis looks like an interesting development if you play those games.   :thumbsup:
