Re: list of orphaned / RFA games
Sorry for the long e-mail but I've done a little more digging.
>falconseye -- A port of NetHack using SDL
Looks nice. Lots of upstream bugs. Upstream inactive.
>scottfree -- Interpreter for Adventure International games
No upstream update since 1998? Removal?
>ssystem -- 3D solar system simulator
Should probably be in science section, not games?
>apple2 -- Apple ][ Emulator
Why is this in games?
>astrolog -- Customizable astrology chart calculation program
Should be in science, not games?
>gnurobots -- Program a robot to explore a world
Currently has an ITA
>pydance -- dancing simulation game similar to the kind in arcades
>pydance-music -- Songs and step patterns for pydance
I'll probably pick these up and ping Alan Woodland (he had done an ITA
at one point).
Unless someone thinks the python team makes more sense?
>uligo -- tsumego (go problems) practice tool
ITA is posted. If they don't get to it, I have a new package pretty
>sarien -- An interpreter for AGI resources
Probably should be removed. Sounds like scummvm has replaced it.
>xcruise -- Fly about a 3D-formed file system
Is this really a game? Probably could be removed anyway but "seems" to
have a few popcon users.
>randtype -- semi-random text typer
Again, doesn't really seem like a game to me??
>quake2 -- improved version of id Software's Quake II engine
I filed an ITA but should probably be removed.
>nagi -- game interpreter for Sierra Online (tm) AGI games
Also replaced by scummvm?
>adonthell -- A 2D graphical roleplaying game
>adonthell-data -- Data files needed by Adonthell
Looks like 0.4 is in development. I will look at this one (especially
since it's a Role Playing Game :-))
>xphoon -- sets the root window to a picture of the moon
Again, is this really a game?
>matanza -- Space ascii war game xeji -- Yet Another Follow the Mouse X
Has an ITA from Sep 2007.
>xfireworks -- Fireworks in your root window
Not a game?
>xjokes -- X11 jokes
>quake2-data -- Installer for Quake II data files
I'll see if Jon has an opinion on this one.
>wmblob -- blobs in a dockapp
Again, not a game?
>lapispuzzle.app -- Almost a clone of Street Puzzle Fighter
Might be worth looking at.
>ladder.app -- GNU Go frontend for GNUstep
Should probably pick this up since it's a Go front-end?
>mines.app -- Minesweeper for GNUstep
Will look into.
>inform -- A compiler for adventure games
Probably to be removed. See BTS.
>briquolo -- Fast paced 3d Breakout
Already in Games Team SVN.
>stepbill.app -- Get rid of those nasty Wingdows viruses
Will look into.
>pouetchess -- 3D chess game
Probably should be removed. We already have 3dchess and dreamchess
which at least work properly.
