Audiogame manager

September 02, 2020 — Storm

This program makes it possible to play Windows based audio games in Linux. In order to use the program, you will need at minimum the following:

  • An X86 computer running Linux. Also tested on Mac OS Catalina or Big Sur.
  • Wine installed with it 32 bit dependancies. In Arch Linux, enable the multilib repositories.
  • wget
  • wine-gecko
  • wine-mono
  • xdotool

For more complete instructions on setting it up for your distribution, check the Install Audiogame manager Wiki.

To install some games, run the audiogame-manager program with the -i flag:

./audiogame-manager -i

You can launch installed games by just running audiogame-manager. It saves its settings in the following path:

~/.config/storm-games/audiogame-manager/games.conf

The layout of the file is wine prefix, (also called wine bottle), followed by a vertical bar, Windows based path, vertical bar, menu name. This is useful if you have installed something by hand but want to use the launcher to start it. Here is an example line from the file:;

super-liam|c:\Program Files\lWorks\Super Liam\sl.exe|Super Liam

chmod +x audiogame-manager

Audiogame-manager can tell you, in a general way, if things are set up correctly. To check your system, run the following:

./audiogame-manager -c

To select a game to play, run:

./audiogame-manager

If you want to be able to launch the program from anywhere, simply move it to somewhere in your executable path. For example, you can place the program in /usr/bin by doing the following:

sudo mv audiogame-manager /usr/bin/
