    Since herbfargus suggested it, I figured I would make a thread here for any game we discover that will run on love 0.10.0.

    Bussard – by technomancy

    A space flight sandbox exploration simulation with a programmable ship and stations. Mine, trade, upgrade, and unlock the potential of your spacecraft by hacking on the code that makes it tick.

    Fly the ship with the arrow keys and zoom with = and -. Use tab to select a target. Hit ` to open up the ship computer’s console, and enter man() to begin the in-game tutorial, which will walk you through the basics of the game.

    Get it here –
    https://gitlab.com/technomancy/bussard

    You can clone the repo, but I find it easier to download it as zip, remove the contents from the bussard-master folder, rezip, and change extension to .love. AFAIK this works for all love games.

    Hello folks; I’m the author of Bussard (and also a Pi owner, though I haven’t gotten a chance to try retropie yet).

    I have just added a feature to auto-reduce some of the CPU-intensive functionality when the frame rate is low, which should make it unneeded to manually adjust the trajectory as stated above. It’s not available in the alpha releases but if you pull from master (either by git or by downloading the zip from https://gitlab.com/technomancy/bussard/repository/archive.zip?ref=master) you will get that functionality.

    The game is still in development and needs more missions to be written, but I am definitely interested in feedback, which I would invite on the issue tracker at https://gitlab.com/technomancy/bussard/issues since this forum here is probably not the best place for it. Especially interested in hearing if there are any other performance problems apart from the trajectory functionality.

    Cheers.

    Well I would highly recommend giving retropie a go as we just released version 3.4

    https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/releases

    When I have time I’d love to give your game a whirl. It’s always appreciated to have upstream development along with gpl at that. Opensource is the way to go.

    I tried some games from Tangram.

    Mr. Rescue and Sienna seem to work fine, except for some issues like displaying the smoke outside of the intended playfield.

    Looking forward to their upcoming games.

    Thanks cliphead for the heads up on 2 other working games, I tried them out, not bad, if anyone else finds more 0.10.0 games that work please post, I’ll do the same

    I just tested Bussard out – Its pretty awesome: brilliant work

    All its missing is some ambient space music in the background.

    just as a reference for anyone else who is building a love game from a github repo you can follow this format in the configure function of the love script:

        # get Bussard for Love 10.0 (game data)
        if [[ ! -f "$romdir/love/bussard.love" ]]; then
            gitPullOrClone "tmp" https://gitlab.com/technomancy/bussard.git
            cd tmp
            zip -r "$romdir/love/bussard.love" "."
            rm -R "tmp"
            chown $user:$user "$romdir/love/bussard.love"
        fi

    It can be run with

    cd RetroPie-Setup
    sudo ./retropie_packages.sh love configure

    Mr. Rescue

        # get mrrescue-1.02d.love (freeware game data)
        if [[ ! -f "$romdir/love/mrrescue-1.02d.love" ]]; then
            wget "https://github.com/SimonLarsen/mrrescue/releases/download/v1.02d/mrrescue-1.02d.love" -O "$romdir/love/mrrescue-1.02d.love"
            chown $user:$user "$romdir/love/mrrescue-1.02d.love"
        fi

    Sienna

        # get sienna-1.0c.love (freeware game data)
        if [[ ! -f "$romdir/love/sienna-1.0c.love" ]]; then
            wget "https://github.com/SimonLarsen/sienna/releases/download/v1.0c/sienna-1.0c.love" -O "$romdir/love/sienna-1.0c.love"
            chown $user:$user "$romdir/love/sienna-1.0c.love"
        fi

    Just tested “90 second portraits” another one by tangram, it runs, no issues, it’s a keyboard and mouse game though, it’s fun, well for me it is lol

    I’ve been talking with the dev of bomb dodgers and he’s been recoding the game to work on 10.0 (bomberman clone)

    Project idea (maybe really long term) but I think it would be cool to develop a simple shooter with the retropie logo as a simple love game that can be included with retropie. (More a novelty than anything)

    Everytime I think about attempting to make a game for löve no other idea pops in my head besides a retropie related game that can be included in every release

    it worked for me on pc using 0.10.0, i don’t see how that would effect the pi any differently.

    @adid4s the down side to love is that there aren’t many update guides and most dated guides are poorly explained.

    Yea that would hinder some things, hey omnija, I’ve got love 0.10.0 downloaded on my phone, some games work on my phone but don’t on the pi, haven’t tried the one you suggested yet though

    2d shooter likely doesn’t work due to opengles shaders on the pi. Pc uses a diff video driver
