It's a ZenGamer project, Zenwalk bases on Slack too. Maybe there'll be a chance to run smth. on Vector?
Never tried that, who knows?

Your dream has come true! http://tuxgames.net/modules/wfdownloads/

 Smiley

I had created zengamer which was originally made to build games only for Zenwalk Linux but after sometime I realized that everyone should share in the fun. Now that Zenwalk has moved to Xorg-7.1 it's current repository probably won't work on Vector's or Slackware's Xorg-6.9 system's anymore since Zenwalk is installing Xorg to /usr.

Hence the move to creating a repo for you guys.

 Wink

A word of advice, I know from the inside that Pat is actively working on Xorg-7.1 himself and it is his highest priority believe it or not so get ready and I've got the emails to prove it.

Does anyone know if Tribes 2's linux version is covered under the same deal that essentially made tribes 2's windows version freely avalible(getting a cd key is the hard part)?

Also what are the min requirements for Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory? Asking because, well...the crippling factor here is my graphics card and I'd rather not go ebaying for a new one just yet(16MB nvidia vanta...yes i know, its old, bite me, onboard is only 4mb).

somebody had trouble starting torus trooper.
There is a package that is built on zenwalk,but works very well on vector linux (5.8 ) - I just tested it out.
Anybody who wanted to check this game,but couldnt run it before, installpkg this:

http://tuxgames.net/modules/wfdownloads/singlefile.php?cid=3&lid=6

and run it with
Code:
/usr/games/bin/ttrooper

cheers and have a merry christmass  Smiley

also I would like to pointout that tuxgames recently started hosting game packages for vector linux aswell (EDIT: oh,somebody already said it) . I want to build packages on 5.8, but i have no idea how/where to upload them. Tongue

EDIT: Thank you,AxXium

Ur Quan Masters (former star control 2- which mutated into something very very different with the feature of multyplayer 0.6.0 ^)

This game is a must have for any sci fi fan out there.

It will be prettyu sweet if you had a package for it (with audio,content,and voice included) at the repo.
I'd make one when i get a normal installation of vec on my second laptop, but there is also another problem for me.I cant package this one with checkinstall.It has its own buil.sh script.  Undecided

Tremulous

http://tremulous.net/

I got it up on my Athlon 900Mhz, 512MB RAM, 32MB ATI XPERT 2000 system without problems.

Its a pretty fun game.  The graphics aren't the best, but its a little different in that its a FPS/Strategy multiplayer game.

Plus the unique experience of playing as an alien running on the ceiling is worth trying.

JRISK

It's not a native Linux game but it is java version of the classic RISK board game, with a simple map format, network play, 1 player, hotseat, 5 user interfaces and many more features, it works in all OSs that run java 1.4 or higher.

i tryed it today and i must admit that the design department ,the music and some new gameplay elements really made excited as to how well and fast this game progresses.... BUT, it was buggy when i played multyplayer.The server got out of sync a couple of times...resulting in a player hitting his fellow pawns without wanting it (same goes to computer player)... Roll Eyes

I played against telemaniaka in multyplayer,thats when the out of sync errors occured.It might be a problem on his side of the client.  Embarrassed
Its not buggy, give it a try.
