Full list of games supported by ./play.it

-----

Hello to all penguins lovers!

Some of you already know about my ./play.it project, that allow for an easy installation of your games on GNU/Linux…
To make it short, I distribute scripts that will allow you to build Linux packages from your game installers, so they can be fully integrated into your environment.

Right now, a little more than 230 games are supported, and you can build packages for Debian and Arch Linux, as well as any derivative (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Manjaro, etc.)
The number of games grow every week, and the number of supported distribution should grow soon too ;)

If I open this thread today it’s to give you weekly updates on the project status (well, I won’t really post every week, but that’s the intent). So let’s cut out the wait and jump to what happened to ./play.it in these last days…

A week with few new games, but high quality ones ;)

Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri (GOG)
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines (DotEmu)
Afterlife (GOG)
Trine Enchanted Edition (GOG)

Of course, the work on this project goes farther than "just" supporting new games, so here is what got upgraded for existing games:

Beneath a Steel Sky
new GOG installer supported (2.1.0.4)
Lure of the Temptress
new GOG installer supported (2.0.0.6)
Neverwinter Nights
full rewrite of the scripts
full rewrite of the usage guide
Pharaoh + Cleopatra: Queen of Nile
full rewrite of the script
new way to split the translation archives
creation of a page dedicated to the translation archives on the website
Pier Solar and the Great Architects
full script rewrite
better multiarch handling
Satellite Reign
new GOG installer supported (2.6.0.8)

Let’s game!

mcbake: I'm not sure, but it looks like the downloaded file is correct, so something else must be happening. I saw some
other instructions you posted, and although they didn't seem to apply, i tried them anyway, which was using the
checksum=none option. The result of that test was the same error, it just didn't check the integrity.

I know you are busy and the ./playit packages are awesome, but was wondering if you might have any ideas. No
biggie since I'm not playing the game, just configuring and updating things. Thank you for providing ./playit , it is
greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
mcbake
The innoextract version you're using is outdated & can't handle the newer installer.

Exact ;)
A newer version can be installed on Ubuntu and derivatives with [url=https://launchpad.net/~arx/+archive/ubuntu/release]this PPA[/url].


EDIT: Sorry, broken link, can’t do anything about it unless GOG decides to hire me.
