Spring Engine is a game engine for RTS styles games, designed after the now classic game Total Annihilation.
The snap contains:
The tool pr-downloader that you can use to download engines, games, maps and so on
The latest engine, the game Zero-K and a map is included out of the box to make it playable.
The lobby can be used to easily launch single or multiplayer games. It has also a built in utility to download games, maps and other tings from users. If you prefer to use pr-downloader, the command is springlobby-nsg.pr-downloader. For example, to download the latest release of BA type springlobby-nsg.pr-downloader ba:stable (Balanced Annihilation is a popular game that is similar to the original Total Annihilation).
The package is named springlobby-nsg. The default channel "stable" contains verified builds. The "edge" channel are automatically built and are untested, this channel should always contain the latest release.
# install stable release (recommended)
snap install springlobby-nsg
# test the edge release
snap install --edge springlobby-nsg # new install
snap refresh --edge springlobby-nsg # switch from stable to edge
This is an unofficial package of SpringLobby. The lobby in the Ubuntu repositories was so old so it was not possible to connect to the official server for online play. I created this snap back in early 2017 for my own use, but published it for everybody to use.
Enable snaps on openSUSE and install SpringLobby (nsg)
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap can be installed from the command line on openSUSE Leap 42.3, Leap 15 and Tumbleweed.
You need first add the snappy repository from the terminal. Leap 15 users, for example, can do this with the following command:
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.0 for either openSUSE_Leap_42.3 or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
Snap can now be installed with the following:
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
