    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.

    Solved No success with Nintendo emulators ports

    I have tried to run different emulators on FreeBSD-Current (v. 14), and they all resulted in black screen while playing. So I switched from i915kms to scfb, but that did not fixed anything.

    Anyone try Valheim on Freebsd?

    Yes, I'm a terrible person for duel-booting into Windows 7 to play games. This game is the best thing to come around since Subnautica. I would really like to try the multiplayer. I'll even deal with my Linux-WINE PTSD and try Steam on Freebsd if there's interest in playing this game.

I do not play games a...

    Minecraft launcher in FreeBSD

    There are some old threads about the launcher, but I can't find anything recent. The pkg is an outdated version 1.7.9 and appears to be a no-go with current servers. I also tried running a VM in FreeBSD using a super-minimal Linux guest but it was miserably slow to run the game this way. Any...

    Solved Games

    I read the steps to porting a new program to FreeBSD and saw that first you download the source code and get it to run on your own system and then compile it or something. How do you do this for runescape launcher?
