I'm afraid that page leads to a nasty 404 (I have an archived web page if you want proof).

This one works for me:

The game does have to be purchased to use the pi version, however, which can be purchased from here:

OpenXCOM is now at a stable 1.0 release. http://openxcom.org/

*should* work on the PI, only potential problem i can see is YAML library in raspbian is an older version so YAML c++ may need updating.

When i find my UFO enemy unknown disks ill try building it..

I can confirm Lincity works just fine ;)

I actually have a lot of games that I need to post here, and I'm currently building a front-end for them all...I'll post here first about it! :mrgreen:

EDIT: I'm a bash scripting newb, I'll just say that upfront, and I need some help to get the aforementioned "front-end" to work...

I plan on using dialog (similar to the retropie installer) to download all of the games and their data into a folder, then use the same script as a menu to select the game you want to play. However, I'm unsure how to use dialog's input... take this example script below:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

VALUES=$(dialog --stdout --title "Forum Radiolist" --checklist "Choose and option:" 40 40 \ 20 \
 "Apples" \ "A red, round fruit." off \
 "Oranges" \ "A round, orange fruit." off \
 "Cat Food" \ "Food for cats, don't try at home!" off \
 )
 
clear
echo $VALUES
Now let's imagine that the user only wants Apples and Cat Food...how do I set the script to only download those two? Thanks in advance (I hope)!

There's a fake video on youtube, but just like I said, it's clearly fake.
It's available for x86 machines running Ubuntu. That's the only way you can play it on linux. Sorry buddy! ;)

Hey again.

In my quest for more RPi fun, I stumbled across PiFox, a Starfox clone written in ARM assembly!

To run it (apparently) you must clone the pifox repo (https://github.com/ICTeam28/PiFox) along with the emulator that runs it, piemu (https://github.com/ICTeam28/PiEmu).

I cloned it, ran cmake, and then tried to make. But, it just returns an error. Help?

 )
 
clear

In this time, I try to do a front end for raspberry games (and homebrew console) and make a specific distro like chameleon or piplay. Maybe we could work together ...
Anyway, I'll look at your script if I can do something

Sorry for my english, I'm french

You can use your var $VALUES like an array.
Look the code below, i put working example to show you a way to use it (but not the good one, you certainly need to directly test the value inside the first boucle and launch function ... )

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

VALUES=$(dialog --stdout --title "Forum" --checklist "Choose" 40 40 20 \
"Apples" "Red Fruit" off \
"Orange" "Orange Fruit" off \
"Cat_Food" "Cat Food" off)

echo $VALUES

if [ $? -eq 0 ]
then
	for value in $VALUES
	do
		echo "your value: $value"
	done
else
	echo cancel selected
fi



echo "$value"

if test "$value" = \"Orange\"
then
	echo "You choose Orange. Why !!!!!!"
fi

case "$value" in
	\"Apples\")
		echo "Apples again"
		;;
	\"Orange\") 
		echo "Orange again"
		;;
	*)
		echo "No Var"
		;;
esac
if [ $? -eq 0 ] >> test if answer is ok (=0) or cancel (=1)

after you can check your value into an array of string. I've change "Cat_Food". You can check value inside for with (if test) or (case) to launch function. Don't forget \" to check value.

Turns out this newb had no idea what he was talking about :roll: PiFox runs independent of any OS on pi. You literally put it's files onto an sd card, insert, and play. PiEmu is used to emulate the game off of a pi.

That would be very interesting! I'll send you a link of the script...it's not even close to finished, but it sorta works... :P

When I get a chance, I'll be sure to test this out! Thank you so much for your help! :mrgreen:

I've enjoyed "The Ur-Quan Masters" (Star Control II)

Utilizing Dos Box I've been able run various Edutainment games such as
Treasure Mountain
Midnight Rescue
Outnumbered

I have even successfully run Chips Challenge on Windows 95 using Dos Box, but I think it would run better in a different dos emulator.

This post, while a legitimate contribution, needs it's own thread as a compatibility list for dosbox on pi. Am I the only one who thinks this?

Good Idea, A wiki page listing compatibility of various games might be even more useful now that I'm thinking it.

Something like -

Red - Does not Work
Yellow - Work with minor errors or stuttering
Green - 100% compatible

I dunno, just talking out loud here.

Hmmm, they are not really running natively, are they? Not sure.

That would be a great idea. Shame i can't remember if most of them work or not. And it would have to be dark colours to read them properly.

Do we have a wiki?

Either way, start with Wikipedia's list of DOS games, and work your way through, play testing each one.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Index_of_MS-DOS_games

Me personally, I don't love DOS games, so this isn't something I'd contribute to, but it really needs it's own sticky thread or something outside of this one...
