Description Alexandre Detiste 2015-11-08 07:34:44 EST
Spec URL: https://github.com/a-detiste/fedora/blob/master/game-data-packager.spec
SRPM URL: https://github.com/a-detiste/fedora/blob/master/game-data-packager-43-1.src.rpm?raw=true
 Various games are divided into two logical parts: engine and data.
 game-data-packager is a tool which builds .rpm files for game
 data which cannot be distributed (such as commercial game data).


This is a Debian-native project & I'm in the upstream-team.

This is my first package.

Sponsor: Hans de Goede

Succesful build:

game-data-packager's sole purpose is to repackage non-free game resources into distro packages. As such it has no place in Fedora itself. I suggest you file a review-request for rpmfusion-nonfree for this.

Ok, that makes sense.

To be pedantic, there's also an handfull of free games suported;
for which no one was interrested into creating a Debian package.

http://scummvm.org/games/ : Soltys, Sfinx

http://www.ucw.cz/draci-historie/index-en.html : Dračí Historie

These doesn't seems to be packaged in Fedora either,
so someone else may want to package these games.

The others games are already there:
