Blog about ScummVM Freeware games of our openSUSE Build Service games project

Status

Lately in my spare time I put some effort in packaging the Freeware games, which are supported by ScummVM engine. I improved packaging of

but also successfully submitted freshly:

In addition I submitted (not accepted yet):

The packages include support for all languages, which have been made available. Also a wrapper script, which on the first run asks for the desired language via xmessage (how retro!) and then creates an appropriate section in scummvm.ini file with fullscreen set, scale factor of 3 (best quality) and enabled subtitles. This section is then used for the scummvm interpreter. Next time the wrappers script runs directly scummvm using this section.

  • do some advertising that we have such packages
