I am the engineer for the Game Player, and I want to apologise for the temporary removal of the Game Player from LinuxMCE.
The Game Player, as it stood in LinuxMCE, had a few flaws:
* imprecise control of the target emulation, due to needing to synthesize X events, and all of the insane synchronization issues that arise from this.
* Huge amounts of metadata were downloaded when the plugin was installed on the core
I was in the middle of writing solutions to address these problems, when the code was accidentally prematurely pushed to the main source code repository in the master branch, which left the code in a very unusable state.
Life has since intervened (most recently, my wife was involved in a car accident), so my priorities are shifted, for the moment.
I intend to address these issues, once we've gotten the bug list for the rest of the system down to a manageable amount. The Game Player will come back, it's my baby, but it needs some serious engineering elbow grease to make it better.
