Linux packager software

Recommended Posts

I have created this software, in case you wanted to mention it in the website.

Before that making the game available in a Linux software center was a major pain. On Arch Linux for example the game was broken for years because nobody really knew how to fix its packaging.

But now this software builds in one clic the file system of the game, so a person only needs to provide that as it is inside a package for making the game available to any Linux operating system. Then one single installation serves all users in the system, and the game is updated using the software center itself.

This software will handle gracefully and automatically mostly any new release of the game. And it will even be resilient to transient internet disconnections, where by the way the current updater just hangs forever.
