News: Let's hunt some more game
« on: June 20, 2011, 06:00:40 pm »
Dear Linuxmce community,

The call for the hunt has been answered, and the results are promising.

The spoils of the hunt

Open defects have been decimated because of the efforts of all our hunters, nice work!
Asterisk seems to work now, but please be critical, post bugs if you find any.

But we are not done yet; as of now 6 bugs are still open: http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/report/9

We kindly ask you if you could verify and/or reproduce them and report your findings in SVN or in the forum. It will make the lives of the dev's a lot easier.
Take a look
http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/1118
http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/1111
http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/1104
http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/734

If no new bugs arise, we are close to a release candidate of LinuxMCE 0810

We need more game

This is being worked on by tschak909.
Thom has re-ignited his passion for the game player and has added numerous new features to this part of Linuxmce

  • Bookmarking state of game ("follow me" works with these games)
  • Support of boxart

    * Intellivision
    * Colecovision
    * Sega SG-1000

Kick ASS

Those people who tell you not to take chances, they are all missing what life's all about.

Here is an actively developed, free, modern 3D game for Linux:

red.planetarena.org

Maybe you could include it, or a desktop link to it. Its a fun game.
