Posted by jaapz on Aug. 15 2007,10:28I installed the quake 2 game by the mydsl panel, but now when i try to execute it, just nothing happens...
I restarted my computer and still no luck
Can somebody help me?
BTW: Some of the other games i install also wont work, like Tuxracer, Supermario

Posted by curaga on Aug. 15 2007,15:06Yeah, the quake & doom engines are open source, but the data files are not.. If you don't own the game, you can get the data from the shareware version..
Tuxracer needs Opengl (aka 3d) libs (full X), I think secret maryo does too.. If you want just "normal" mario, Nes emulators work easily ;)
Posted by jaapz on Aug. 16 2007,19:55so when i want to play the games, i just have to download the shareware version of quake or something? but what should i do with that files, where do i have to put them?
(ps: sorry for my bad englisch, im dutch )
Posted by u2musicmike on Aug. 17 2007,00:44I didn't have to load up anything to play doom. I just got doom.dsl and loaded it up. Read the info file just in case. I was already running gtk2 and gnu-utils. Search the forum on doom and you will find out how to resize the window.
