    Linux GOG games on FreeBSD

    I use the Linuxulator for Steam, but I've never tried running a Linux game outside of linux-steam-utils. I'm curious, are GOG Linux games as simple as having the Linuxulator enabled and running whatever binary starts it? The only GOG games I've ran have been through WINE, so this is why I'm...

    Potential games-interpreters category

    I intend to start a new category called "games-interpreters". It could be a virtual category, but it may be better as its own physical category. Gaming needs more organization in the ports tree, and it will keep the prefix of games. I now know how to make the edits and patches to Bugzilla, so I...

    No fortunes found in /usr/share/games/fortune:/usr/local/share/games/fortune.

    I recently updated to 12.2 and a user immediately noticed that fortune no longer works. I know it's not that important, and apparently there was some sort of holy war over inclusion of "offensive" fortunes, which resulted in a change to the default installation. I don't care about any of that...
