Unofficial games repository

For reasons we can only speculate about, Arch Linux ARM does not really have any games in their repository.
And by extension, neither does Manjaro ARM.

I don’t want to make our repository go to enourmous size (the games are often 500+ MB each), so I have created a separate repository, just for aarch64 based games.

To add this repository on Manjaro ARM all you have to do is this:

  1. Add this to your /etc/pacman.conf file:
[manjaro-arm-games]
SigLevel = Never
Server = https://www.strits.dk/files/manjaro-arm-games/
  1. Run sudo pacman -Syyu to update all your databases, including the new manjaro-arm-games one.
  2. Now you have access to the games in this repository.

Currently the games available in this repository are:

  1. OpenArena
  2. Xonotic (did not launch for me)
  3. SuperTuxKart
  4. Warzone 2100
  5. Sonic Robo Blast 2 Kart (srb2kart)
  6. Flightgear

If you have more games you want included in the above repository, please submit a working aarch64 PKGBUILD and I will probably include it.

Would like to see 0AD working on the ARM devices, but I guess we need some additional iterations on the mesa drivers before this would be possible…

hmmm when trying to install openarena from your repo it downloads sucessfully, but later give me an error such as…

error: openarena: missing required signature
error: failed to commit transaction (package missing required signature)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.

Others have reported the same, but I don’t know why, since the signatures where uploaded…

You can always add SigLevel = Never just above the server line, but that’s a workaround, not a fix.

Looking into packaging 0ad.

xonotic-glx launches on the pi4 but sound does not work
xonotic-sdk launches on the pi4 and everything works

I should check how openmw works now.

Yeah, I figured it’s because the graphics stack on my Odroid is still a WIP. :stuck_out_tongue:

Update your database. I uploaded an updated package.

Try again now.

The repo server, might be slow at “updating” the files it has.

@Strit what about Widelands (https://www.widelands.org/)? You see I’m more fond of RTS games :wink:

I will look into it.
