  1. Full Throttle Remastered A super fun game, I would have paid full price for it but luckily I got it for next to nowt in a sale. Runs very well indeed on Arch. I do have to set up "Full Screen" in the options every time I fire it up otherwise it plays in a window. There may be a work around but I have not looked for one.

  3. Blade of Agony Chapters 1 + 2 Flatpak from here, https://flathub.org/..._Blade_of_Agony Snap from here, https://snapcraft.io/boa Blade of Agony runs really well on my Windows 7 install on my skylake rigg. I installed to my Arch/sklake set up with the flatpak version. The install went easily and the game ran. However for some reason the graphics were very blocky and the game did not run as smoothly as the windows install. This is a shame as installing was a easy one click affair just as advertised by the flatpak folk. I have not tried out the snap version yet. Nearly forgot, if you try and get stuck throwing grenades in the training session the answer can be found here, https://www.moddb.com/mods/wolfendoom-blade-of-agony/downloads/blade-of-agony-chapter-1 you will need the information if you want to throw grenades or kick someone anywhere in the game.
  4. TrackMania Nations Forever Available As A Snap Application I managed to install the snapd program on Arch but the game would not install. Had a missing file or folder or some such. I could not be bothered sorting the fault as the whole idea is that everything should be contained in the snap so no fiddling about is needed. Buntu based users may have better results.

  6. Does anyone fancy a game ? It would be easy to organise a cloud/Dropbox folder accessible by players for storing the game files. I was thinking of something like ZIM which is cross platform and easy to use for all the game instructions and gameplay. A chat program would be might be useful aswell so that folk could talk about the throw of the dice or the Gamemasters decisions. I was thinking of Hex-Chat but am not sure if it is cross platform. Playing the game would be simple. Discuss here in a thread a game and characters and decide on a Gamesmaster. Create a online folder containing ZIM. The Gamemaster issues instructions updates the folder and posts a notification in the forum thread. As each player takes a turn they record their actions in ZIM and updates the folder and posts a notice in the forum thread. Talk about the game could either be in the forum thread or in a chat program which ever folk feel is the best way. Players would not need to make instant decisions though they could if they wanted to. As folk have different calls on their time responding to the game would be to suit the player with say a 48 hour limit on turns. That is the basic outline if anyone is interested. https://www.humblebundle.com/books/doctor-who-rpg-books We could either get one copy of the game or each buy a copy the Humble folk support some good causes so I do not mind the individual copy route.
  7. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wowlabs/real-fx-radio-control-car-racing-system-with-ai?ref=category It must be the heat or the fact that I had a good month voluntary driving and have just finished me monthly accounts and saw how much loot was coming my way.Call me crazy but I just had to. Hope they make the grade.

  9. My 5 year old has discovered Minecraft (Super Lego on the computer) I have set up a vanilla minecraft server on my main desktop which eveyone in the house can connect to with the vanilla clients. Problem comes when I try to add mod support to the server/client software. There are not any really simple Linux instructions which work. Lots of Windows/Mac advice. I have downloaded the Minecraft Forge server software, it is all set up and runs fine. I need to add the fml (forge mod loader) software to the clients and that is what is failing. Here are the instructions included with the software needed for the client. I have opened the .jar files with Ark and added/deleted the files/folders. Fail I have extracted the archive, added the files/folders, and recompressed with jar command line tools. Fail After I do this the client load stops at the download complete step and does not proceed. Any ideas?
