Works in Progress / Retro Pacman game for Opensuse users
« on: January 10, 2023, 10:42:12 am »
Completed a retro Pacman game with a modern spin for OpenSuse users of Tumbleweed and Leap. Completely sourced and compiled to run natively. You may need to install additional dependencies which will be explained in a Readme file.

I kinda agree in that today Tower Defense games are considered separate but overall, one must employ strategy........which is why i considered them into that category.

Another genre i forgot to include is Board games.

I'm taking this poll in an attempt to comprehend what type of tutorial/game would be good to make/outline using Enigma. Please answer as honestly as possible and if i have missed out a category, then tell me which should have been included.
even if you are not a full 'gamer', there must be some you do play.

No doubt that KDE is very attractive and sleek but it is bit of a resource hog.

I'm happy with KDE ever since the extremely recent updates making it much more slimmed down and stable.
truth be told, i haven't used KDE for years. It was always XCFE for me even when my system got upgraded. I am inspired to give it another go.

great work.
 I tried it and there were no problems.

It also created a lancher link in the menu......although the icon is an old one. If you could perhaps change it to the modern one, that would be fantastic

Greetings................. :)
quick and easy fix would be to use the function    sound_play(name of sound file)

i've also experienced trouble using the audio_play_sound function in the past.

The type of system one has is the most important factor. No doubt that KDE is very attractive and sleek but it is bit of a resource hog.

Gnome is bloated and buggy. Tbh i hate the sidebar but i do get the idea of being 'different'.

By far XFCE is the most suited to use on all manner of systems, whether they be old or modern.

Greeting, my fellow enigmanaunts! With everything that is happening in the world nowadays, there wasn't much word from me about the state of Enigma progress. Well i'm happy and excited to tell you that there's another platform Enigma have been successfully transitioned to. That platform is no other than ARM via the Raspberry PI4.

Through the generosity of Goombert, one of the project devs, in gifting me one, such a feat was accomplished.

The Raspberry PI4 used has 4GB memory with a 32GB flash card for storage. You can upgrade the storage as high as you are willing to go. 32Gb is descent enough,As far as installation goes, it went through smoothly. However I had numerous problems attempting to upgrade the gcc and g++ libraries. Unfortunately, the highest version Raspbian uses is 8.3 which causes errors.

After numerous failures trying to upgrade, i installed Manjaro ARM and all problems were non-existant. you can use the setup instructions detailed from here.

There are some tweaks I did which you do if you choose to. Depending on you PI setup, you can use a USB or Flash Disk with higher capacity. I opted to use an external drive enclosure with a 500GB Hard drive as i had one laying around.. There are kits and enclosures designed for the PI but as mine is already in one, this external drive option was the better solution.

i will do instruction a video from installation to compiling a game soon, so look out for that soon.
i must say that I am marveled at the PI. Not only for its size, but its simplicity and power consumption  5 Volts. to run a computer and its peripherals. It is indeed a wonder of technology.
if you have any questions , you can find me on the Discord.

Until then, "be excellent with one another"

needless to say there have been a lot to work. This adds up to improvements and re-structuring which have led to some of those same functions not worked on or/and dismissed altogether.

Another reason has to do with the developers putting most of their focus into RGM , the proposed better IDE to fruition. RGM promises better features and is easier to work with since it is structured using QT unlike LGM that uses JAVA.

You can keep up to date joining the Discord or its github page.

The instructions have been updated in the Wiki with additional links to install the libdumb library. libdumb is needed for producing sound via the OpenAL API.  SFMLis no longer supported through the same API widget as OpenAL so it was necessary to provide this update.
To get the library you will need to type some CLI commands in the Terminal as you need to add an additional repository to get the package.
