Wonderful flatpak game

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 3:11 pm

Found a flatpak that I could really use (ha!), installed with MX Package Installer using the new Flatpaks tab.

Slingshot: https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.gi ... .slingshot

Too bad we can't set up an MX site where members could play against each other!

BTW: I'm going to suggest this come with MX-18 by default...

Oddly enough, it's already in Jessie and Buster, just not in the Stretch repo. So here's a non-Flatpak "native" MX 17 build: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1KDwwy ... nqRlQ4OK5l

And unfortunately on my hdpi screen I can barely see a thing. I found this with several flatpacks. As dolphin said in the video many do not follow system theming.

Ok. Going to log out of the forum and give it another try. In fact, may not go to sleep tonight.

Ha, this is fun, I shot, it went around a planet 2 times and then it came back and killed me.

Is there anyway to slow down the gameplay speed? It'd be cooler if the bomb could take a couple a minutes to whip around a planet twice and then come back to kill you--you'd have longer to scream once you realize your inevitable fate. It seems like this should be pretty easy to do in a Python game.
