Hello fellow Linux gamers!

Here you’ll find scripts allowing you to build packages for Debian, Arch Linux and any derivative (Ubuntu, Manjaro, Linux Mint, etc.) from your GOG installers for Ultima games.
You will then be able to easily install these packages with you favourite packages manager.

Download links and usage instructions can be found on the following pages:
Akalabeth: World of Doom

We hope you’ll enjoy the ease-of-use provided by these scripts as much as we enjoy writing and tweaking them ;)

Here you go for more supported games!

Salut camarades Linuxiens !

Vous trouverez ici des scripts vous permettant de construire des paquets pour Debian, Arch Linux ou n’importe quelle distribution dérivée de celles-ci (Ubuntu, Manjaro, Linux Mint, etc.) à partir de vos installeurs GOG pour la série Ultima.
Ces paquets pourront ensuite être installés facilement via votre gestionnaire de paquets habituel.

Les liens de télechargement et les instructions d’utilisation se trouvent sur les pages suivantes :
Akalabeth: World of Doom

Nous espérons que vous apprécierez le confort apporté par ces scripts autant que nous apprécions les écrire et les améliorer ;)

Pour plus de jeux, rendez-vous par ici !

You're welcome ;-)
How it works? Does it extract game files from GOG installer and installs the game with its own instance of DosBox?

It does extract the game files, then builds a .deb package depending on the system version of DOSBox.
Saved games and settings are stored in the current user home directory, while game data files are stored read-only in system directories.

Great! Thanks for explanations!
... must... have... GWENT! *druel*

Why must GOG torment me so? We had this working before Galaxy came along, or so I thought?
Update

The script for Akalabeth has been updated to use ./play.it 2
Amongst other improvement, this brings the ability to use the script to install this game on Arch Linux and derivatives.
Very cool! Is this script how the GOG Akalabeth (and other GOG games you've created installers for) supports Linux? Or is this separate from GOG Linux support for these titles?

In your first post, you mention "Ultima games", but there's only support for Akalabeth. Are youns planning on supporting the Ultima games?

GOG Linux support is done without using my work in any way, as far as I know ;)

Exact.
By the way, request for new games can be posted or [url=https://framagit.org/vv221/play.it/issues]there.
