Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (8 votes)

Thanks to @abmyii for his port of this game to Ubuntu Touch.

Tux Racer lets you take on the role of Tux the Linux Penguin as he races down steep, snow-covered mountains. Enter cups and compete to win the title! Tux Racer includes a variety of options for gameplay, including the ability to race courses in fog, at night, and under high winds.

This is just port for SailfishOS. this port based on Ubuntu Touch's port

Are you aware that the volume is unchagable?

sashikknox's picture

Yes, only from settings, because it use OpenAL as sound backend, and it work ugly with pulseaudio on sailfishos

If you launch the game with the environment variable PULSE_PROP_media.role=x-maemo, the volume control works as it should.

I've tested on sfos 3.4. It installs and I can hear the music but the screen is black. I've tested on two devices with sfos 3.4 and on both the screen was black in the game.

sashikknox's picture

what devices? On inoi r7 and xa2+ it work

edp17's picture

I have tested on hammerhead (Nexus 5), Galaxy Note 4 (treltexx) and Xperia XA2. On the XA2, it works fine but on the first two, I only get a black screen. I hear the music and the game reacts when I tap on the screen but I don't see the menu options.

Did you try run it from terminal, is it log some errors messages maybe?

It works very good on sfos 3.4. Thanks for this game!
However, on a hammerhead (Nexus5) with sfos 3.3, it cannot be installed:
"File: ./armv7hl/libhybris-libGLESv1- not found on medium 'http://repo.merproject.org/obs/nemo:/devel:/hw:/lge:/hammerhead/sailfish...'"

Oh by the way, volume control doesnt work on hw buttons, only in menu settings :) maybe some icon to turn off music right from the game could be handy :)

Nice work, thanks!!! Two minor issues on XA2: The icon is not shown and volume seems unadjustable. Fun game!

sashikknox's picture

because icon put in wrong directory, in next RPM i'll fix it, now just need restart lipstick ( or just move aapp to siome sub folder in apps  menu, and icon refresh )
sound - now, you should control it from configuration only.
