Version 5.2 for GNU/Linux (Guix package) Empty Version 5.2 for GNU/Linux (Guix package)

Post  Ambrevar Sun Nov 29, 2020 7:01 pm

Hi!

I'm happy to let you know that I've packaged Streets of Rage Remake 5.2 for
GNU/Linux! It's a fully native package based on bennu-game-development 353 or
above.

More specifically, I've packaged it for Guix (https://guix.gnu.org/) but the
good news is that Guix can be installed on any GNU/Linux distribution!

The package definition is located here:
https://gitlab.com/guix-gaming-channels/games/-/blob/master/games/packages/streets-of-rage.scm

Follow the instructions at https://gitlab.com/guix-gaming-channels/games to
include the "Guix gaming channel" to your Guix install.

Note that for the time being I haven't set the `source' field because there is
no non-interactive download link. Thus you need to first download the .rar file
provided at
https://sorr.forumotion.net/t838-new-streets-of-rage-remake-v5-2-download-and-info,
then install the package with

guix install streets-of-rage-remake@5.2 --with-source=streets-of-rage-remake=/path/to/SORRv52_rev550.rar

It's also possible to generate a "Guix pack", which is a self-contained archive
that works anywhere a Linux kernel is running. Just run

guix pack -RR streets-of-rage-remake@5.2 --with-source=streets-of-rage-remake=/path/to/SORRv52_rev550.rar

then unpack the result anywhere you want. This is useful if you want to share
the game with friends who don't have Guix (yet)!

Cheers!

guix install: error: streets-of-rage-remake: package not found for version 5.2

That is most complicated install of any game i ever seen... How is supposed to all normal people install this?
Can you make a single install script?

What does

guix search streets-of-rage-remake

return you?

If there is no result, then you didn't install the `games` channel. Do it, run guix pull, then try again Smile

The locale issue is benign, no worries.

It does not find the package because the `games' channel is not setup properly.
The `guix describe` command should return something like this:

I do "guix pull" 3 times, but streets of rage does not showing. Other things are shown when search something else.

Your guix is not installed properly.

Make sure that

`which guix`

returns

$HOME/.config/guix/current/bin/guix

If not, export the above in your PATH:

export PATH=$HOME/.config/guix/current/bin/guix:$PATH

Make sure that `which guix` now returns the right `guix`, run `guix pull` and install SORR Smile

I do all needed, but that is terminal output:
Code:
which guix
/usr/local/bin/guix

Can we install the game in normal way? This way is too complicated or need so much configuration, that i don't understand. This method is so slow and i cannot see anyone else can use this.
I installed the game with bennugd, start it, but it run very slow.
I have SorR v5.1 and its running with normal speed.

My bad, the export line was wrong, you must remove the trailing "guix":

export PATH=$HOME/.config/guix/current/bin:$PATH

then `which guix` should report the right thing.

Guix is a fantastic package manager, if you install it properly it gives you thousands of cutting-edge packages (including games!) with roll-backs (updates never break), reproducibility, and all the latest advances in computing Smile

Have you tried editing system.txt? Delete the contents, paste the following and save it. Boot up the game and see if it makes any difference for you.


// GAME PORTS: PC, WIZ, XBOX, PSP, WII, ANDROID, HANDHELD

Now SorR is listed after search.

You can start the game with `sorr`.

About slow-motion: maybe it's because the settings / engine were updated with 5.2. It works well here on 2 machines I tried it on.

Maybe try to enable or disable V-sync.

I saw the problem. It's from widescreen mode. If disabled, the game speed are good. If enabled, game super slow down.
v-sync is unchangeable and is disabled by default.

I ran into the slowdown problem as well. It's because widescreen renders the game at a higher resolution (native desktop res?) than the original 4:3 solutions (320x240 or 640x480 at 2x scale).
BennuGD is an ancient piece of tech and as far as I can tell it's all pure software rendering. Not a problem for any modern processor at 640x480, but at 1366x768 / 1920x1080 the whole thing slows down to a crawl.

Edit: Open /mod/system.txt and change the fullscreen option to AUTO. Now the ingame fullscreen/windowed option works again.
You can turn on widescreen and set it to windowed with your scaling factor of choice. My weakest system handles normal x2 without slowdown, whereas with fullscreen turned on it becomes a stuttering mess.
