    Better, but I still prefer to leave my options open in ways AGPL complicates and I'm still not a big fan of the Java experience on a system where the firmware, nVidia binary drivers, Flash, Dropbox, and oDesk Team are the only non-libre, non-game components.

    Last I checked, the libre-licensed JVM was a bit of a hog... especially when there were no other Java applications to share the memory footprint of the libraries.

    PS: this is my first post on Phoronix, I'm sorry if I'm jumping the presentations but it is late and I wanted to post this No, I have nothing to do with rpgboss or his creator

    Sure. If someone is willing to put in the work to wade through the dead swamp that is MRI 1.8 and make it all compile, I'd sure accept patches.
    In the end you will never get 100% because some games will use the Win32API directly (such as ToTheMoon), and you will have to port these parts over.

    Heh, great, good that I was trying to look smart ;-)

    I never used an RPG Maker newer than 2000, so it is enough to support this "Ruby Game Scripting System" thingy to get games running under Linux? No support for proprietary map/database files needed?
    Or is everything used by RPGMXP internally written in RGSS? oO

    Regards

    The package that you are looking for is named libsdl-ttf2.0-dev and it's non development equivalent is libsdl-ttf2.0-0.
    Dude, be nice! If you are wondering something, asking someone is a good way to find out. Even if it might be possible to go research things without ever talking to another human being that doesn't mean you have to do so.

    MRI

    Website: https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/

    Matz's Ruby Interpreter, also called CRuby, is the most widely deployed version of ruby. If you're interested in running games created with RPG Maker XP, this is the one you should go for. MRI 1.8 is what was used in RPG Maker XP, however, this binding is written against 2.0 (the latest version). For games utilizing only the default scripts provided by Enterbrain, this binding works quite well so far. Note that there are language and syntax differences between 1.8 and 2.0, so some user created scripts may not work correctly.

    For a list of differences, see: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2...8-and-ruby-1-9

    I overlooked the forking part of git but then again forked repos are clearly labeled. Looking at your Metapad repo there is this info:

    Oppen / metapad
    forked from alexd/metapad

    For example, you can look up "Oppen" in github, which is my user name. There are three or four repos there, of which I only started one from scratch.
