The game.tar.gz package can then be installed with pacman, the goal being to avoid the creation an AUR package for each game. The list of games can be found on wiki.dotslashplay.it. These need to be downloaded from a provider and therefore, purchased (play.it is not retributed).

The AUR package play.itAUR intends to provide a software that generate a game.tar.gz package from a Windows game.exe file. The game.tar.gz package can then be installed with pacman, the goal being to avoid the creation an AUR package for each game. The list of games can be found on wiki.dotslashplay.it. Some of these need to be downloaded from a provider and therefore, purchased (play.it is not retributed).

Help is available in English on the IRC channel #play.it.

Installation

Play.it AUR package

The installation of the play.itAUR package is as any other. For example, if all the AUR packages are under ~/build, then a new directory ~/build/play.it-games could be a place to download the games: ~/build/play.it-games/game-1, ~/build/play.it-games/game-2, ...

Games

The installation of the games always follows the same pattern:

  1. download the scripts:
    • play-name-of-the-game.sh
    • libplayit2.sh
  2. download the .exe file
  3. install the possible dependencies like dosbox or wine
  4. run the play-name-of-the-game.sh script:
    $ sh ./play-name-of-the-game.sh
  5. install the game_package.pkg.tar game package just generated by the play-name-of-the-game.sh script:
    $ sudo pacman -U /path/to/game_package.pkg.tar
  6. run the game:
    $ game_package
