Sub_title: Slightly buggy but still fun!
 

Introducing... GamePup2.16 based on puppy 2.16.1.
125 mega bytes
Contains lots of small games for a bit of variety.

It uses XFCE or you can revert to JWM window manager.
Has a custom game launcher Wink

Warning!
Xfce only works on my computers using Xorg at 1024x768 resolution. No other resolution works, so please use it.
If you have nforce integrated graphics you may have problems with no mouse pointer if you have a usb mouse! (it happens with mine)

Apart from that it should be ok, i think, but its an alpha for sure. It might be better to run it with Qemu for a quick blast (anyone up for configuring it?).

Download link (only megaupload for now sorry!)
Code:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=MSGDX7E9

MD5 SUM
c9e2ea8be47c70f2c50b4f45c3a6cfb2 gamepup216.iso

CoBlitzed link for GamePup 2.16 - just use your regular download method
http://coblitz.codeen.org/puppyisos.org/isos/2007-07-to-12/pfiles/gamepup216.iso

Metalink for Gamepup 2.16 - use a metalink-enabled downloader, eg Aria2
http://www.metamirrors.nl/backend/get.php?lnk=http://puppyisos.org/isos/2007-07-to-12/pfiles/gamepup216.iso

If you have problems with using megaupload see the post under this one for graphical examples!
Thankyou
Martyn

I agree, looks great. should be a great complement to my 1.08 game puppy disk. (great stress reliever) Will look foreward to downloading soon on dialup. It looks like you put a lot of work into making it unique, well done!

Good news Smile
Great choice of window manager

I seem to remember two games disks based on 1.08?

. . . anyway placed GamePup on the news
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/LatestNews

I wonder how difficult it would be to have a games sfs for any future version of Puppy?

Game ON

This looks great. I know some kids (at my school in Taiwan) who will really enjoy this one.They love puppy, but sometimes ask for more games. This seems ideal. If they give me any comments I'll pass them on. Cheers.

Fantastic, this is really good, hours of time wasting.

Everything seems to work on my puny Intel 830 graphics.

You've even explained the rules of GTKFish, I never understood that before.

Did you consider doing it as a squash instead of a separate iso?

Having just completed this I'm sure you'll be looking for more games Smile

How about xgalaga
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=11918

pingus is a good lemmings clone, its been a bit stuck for a while but the intro map has some good levels, you can design your own and there are heaps of work in progress levels that you can access via the cli. The pre-compiled binary works in puppy.

Thanks for the comments everyone! I'm glad someones enjoying it.

I thought about adding more games to it when i was putting everything together, but i wanted to keep it really small. I think for the size, its quite packed (but, yeah, i know, everyone would like more - me included Very Happy )

Will -
I started looking into squash at the start, but to be honest i really didn't know what to do! I wasn't even sure i'd pull off a successful remaster Confused
I might give it a go when 2.17 is finalized and try building one on that. I've still got all the pups etc and i could add more. I can fit a lot in 100mb i reckon, especially using Muggins suggestion (Cheers!) of using self extracting archives for some games.

What an enjoyable distro! I just installed ezpup, xgalaga and xpupuyo. It works fine. Me and my son had an enjoyable time together!

I have tried several games distro such as gamesknoppix but I always consider Puppy-based games distro works better and have more games. I'm now waiting for your next edition of GamesPup.

Rock on! Laughing

i must have had my "thinking cap" on backwards, as i forgot that, with the .iso file & mksquashfs, everything is compressed anyway.

headfound,

It's great fun, and not enough hours in the day 'Smile'
Here are a couple more games for consideration. If you were/are a fan of the Boulderdash sort, try these. Just extract and run. Rocks'n'Diamonds and Mirror Magic, from:
