Title: ENIGMOS - The Operating System for Attractive Women!
Post by: time-killer-games on November 10, 2020, 06:52:47 AM
Hello everyone!

I created a FreeBSD virtualbox image that you may use to create games with everything you need to do that installed by default - showcasing the Xfce Desktop Environment customized to be themed around the game development software packaged with it - ENIGMA - as well as some basic apps for development. GIMP for drawing and animating sprites, tilesets, backgrounds, and textures. Audacity for editing music you have composed or to touch up on your sound effects. mpv Media Player (the client library and command line app) for playing videos as cutscenes for your games or to preview them directly from a double click in Thunar File Manager. Engrampa for a graphical means to manage archives. OctoPkg for graphical package management. The FreeBSD GUI Wifi Manager, Firefox, Thunderbird, and all the default apps of the Xfce Desktop Environment - all essentials to having a complete desktop experience ready for game development - without the bloat.

You may use the VirtualBox VBoxManage tool to write the vdi image to a USB device while converting it to a raw dd image, enabling you to, if you have a >= 32gb USB Flash Drive handy, boot from the flash drive itself when turning on a physical machine you have connected it to - similar to NomadBSD, although this is more targeted at game developers specifically, it is also a nice alternative to NomadBSD in itself. It even has a few nice things NomadBSD lacks, like a terminal you can drag and drop files onto, or a task manager app for when an app chooses to not respond so you won't be completely screwed.

Interface Preview:

Install Instructions:

As mentioned in the video, Windows users can extract the *.xz file by downloading and using 7zip, Linux, *BSD, and Mac users and use the unxz command and Linux users will need the xz-utils package installed for that, for example Ubuntu users:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install xz-utils
The gorgeous desktop backgrounds used by the OS were created by ENIGMA community member HitCoder.


I hope this attracts more people over to the ENIGMA and FreeBSD communities lel

Updated the image with a few improvements over the original.

- WINE is now bundled with the installation, providing you limited Windows 32-bit and 64-bit binary support.

- The image can now be truncated to fit on USB flash drives of at least 32gb of storage space, instead of the former 64gb requirement

- Changed the SLiM theme to be more FreeBSD-focussed, and a preview of the new login screen can be seen below:


Note: just like the previous login theme, this doesn't play well with dual monitor setups; using on single monitor setups is recommended.
