Crunchbang gaming.

All work and no play makes you nerds become dull boys. How do games work with #! and which one you play on it?

I like being dull big_smile
You can run Steam on #!, but it's a bit of a faff --- try @Alad's script in that thread...

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

There's excellent games all the way. Tested and recommended by me:

Xonotic (link in my signature): Highly competitive, quake-like fps shooter. ctf, dm, freezetag, tdm etc pp with rad graphics. Active development, vibrant community. You can kick my ass here, pm me if you want to play sometime ^^

Emacs' tetris. No joke. M-x tetris is the best.

Hedgewars. Clone of the epic, classic Worms 3.

freeciv (package: freeciv-*). FOSS Civilization II (not sure?) clone. Time sink ahead...

Battle for Wesnoth (packages: wesnoth*). Round-based, very mature and interesting strategy game.

Red Eclipse (packages: redeclipse*). FOSS FPS arena shooter.

All of these are impressive, but Xonotic and Red Eclipse probably have the most refined graphics :-) Xon's my favourite.

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

Steam linux client now has over 500 games for it!  My recommendations:

The fall
Dark matter

Fps:
Left4dead2
No room in hell
Nuclear dawn

Strategy/tactics:
Arma tactics
Breach and clear
Civilization 5

Rpg:
Jesabel
Witcher

Also with playonlinux /wine, I play world of warcraft flawlessly and have played diablo 3, rage, dead island just fine as well.

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

Crunchbang gaming is possible.

Back when I had my #! install, I had Unreal Tourney 2k4, and several other steam games.

tbh though I'm sort of parting away from gaming a little, too distracting big_smile

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

Since gaming is possible, I'm thinking of making a #! Steam group. Drop your Steam names to get an invite.

EDIT: Just made one. http://steamcommunity.com/groups/hashbanggaming

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

Never been much of a gamer, even on Windoes.  In Linux I play Ltris and Burgerspace regularly. Burgerspace is definitely way old-school in every sense, but still a lot of fun. Ltris, another Tetris clone, actually relaxes my mind and helps clear some of the fog.

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

1) dwarf fortress (link)
2) cataclysm: dark days ahead (link)

p.s. have steam and over 50 titles accumulated there, mostly humble bundle stuff, as well as minecraft. don't remember opening any of those for a long time though.

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

i'm not a fan of fps.

i don't use steam, either.

i'm actually not playing games all that much, but these games i play regularly atm:

supertuxkart - i think it's the most and best developed linux game (i'm not saying it's the best game) and i enjoy something as simple as that a lot.
frogatto - a really well made retro side scrolling platform adventure.
freedink - i think this one is genuinely old, not retro. a graphical adventure with nerdy monologues; but i like the gameplay.

[ previously, i've been playing nethack with this interface and Beneath A Steel Sky which runs nicely on linux through ScummVM and, last not least, cave story (doukutsu) and ikachan and seiklus. ]

and there's this guy: http://nifflas.ni2.se/
most have a linux version, and some of the games are full-grown platform adventures.

all these are probably very easy games - i just don't see the point in ending up with knots in my shoulder muscles and nightmares while recreating.

all these are also free in every sense.

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

NICE, I'm excited to see how this will work..I like the Xonotic thing, reminds me of Nexuiz (before the whole console version thing on XBLA), though I think steam will be used in a VM on here.

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

You'll get better performance from Steam if you use it with PlayOnLinux (or natively, to support the games that have been ported). Running Steam in a VM sucks. You're constrained to max 128mb RAM, unless you can dedicate an additional graphics card to rendering everything inside the VM.

Actually, it's a child of Nexuiz! You'll find many of the famous clans from Nexuiz playing Xonotic from time to time too (or they switched altogether). Like [力] Regulars, eXiLe and MoN – as powerful as ever.

And the amazing thing was, when I downloaded the .ZIP of the game, I didn't have to run a makefile or anything, just go in and run the 64-bit linux script and it works!

Re: Crunchbang gaming.

Let me start off by saying that I must be the only guy who buys a high end gaming rig (to play games) and only runs Linux on it (to play games). Yes that's right, I use Linux as my "hardcore" gaming OS.

As for what I play, well a lot. Minecraft is by far my most played and favourite game of all. Single player, of course, the way I prefer all my games (and not tied to Steam, the less on Steam the better). I also have over 3,000 DOS games, all full versions and all work. Fragile Allegiance is my favourite DOS game.

Many many others, of couse - UT2004 (my modded UT2004 Is over 100 GB installed), also many WINE games - Skyrim, Borderlands etc, I mention WINE because all the games I play on it run much better than Windows native. Everything. Anything is possible with know-how.
