Release Announcements / SuperGamer V6 Release
« on: June 02, 2020, 08:27:24 AM »
I will be uploading a new release shortly. Here is the description of the changes......

I am proud to announce the release of the SuperGamer v6. This is using the new 20.04 base. I have included some Games as well as Game Manager Installers. This release is going forward with the 5.6.14 kernel built for Low Lattency and unpatched. Nvidia drivers work from the Installer on this Kernel. I also included some more wallpapers and fixed some of the Ryzen 3 onboard graphics issues.  This should work for both Legacy and UEFI but as always your mileage may vary with different motherboards and BIOS's.

Release Announcements / SuperGamer 6 BETA
« on: March 11, 2020, 07:00:24 PM »
This release is based on 20.04 daily and may be very buggy. I included the Snap Store and some 2d games to play live. This has to be said for some reason, you cannot install the game installers running live. Apt is not setup on the live account and the live scripts do not allow this to happen. There are a few differences between this Beta and the SuperGamer v5 release. Beside the obvious newer base there are a few tweaks to the menu with it being different. I also included newer amdgpu firmware drivers to help with amd gpus.

Release Announcements / SuperGamer 6 teaser

I do have an iso that is based upon the new 20.04 daily base. I am testing it out now and will have my testers take a look at it. I included some 2d games and the Snap Store.

Release Announcements / SuperGamer 5 Release Notes
« on: January 12, 2020, 04:44:58 PM »
The SuperGamer v5 has arrived. It is based upon the 19.10 base, 64 bit ONLY, which has the 5.3 kernel and XFCE 4.14. I have included Installers for Steam, Lutris and PlayOnLinux as well as cleaned up the look and feel of it. Please DO NOT try to install the games running live as they will not install and they are ONLY to be installed after a Hard Drive install. Use the Live Boot to test your hardware. UEFI support is still hit and miss with the new grub but it does work in Live mode. I am aware of Ryzen 3 support and some motherboards not working. I am trying to figure out a fix as this is a Linux issue and others have issues. The firmware is corrupted on them for the Linux drivers. This is themed darker and the base does not have any games installed. This was done on purpose to give users a choice on how they want to customize their system. If a user want to install most of the games, they should use this, be warned, this will download almost 12GB's then have an installed size of around 20GB's, you need to run this out of a terminal:
Code: [Select]
pkexec apt install games*

Release Announcements / New 19.10 based beta
« on: December 03, 2019, 10:17:44 PM »
I am building a 19.10 based beta. Here is a quick glance at the changed desktop.

There will be at least a couple of beta builds but this is pretty good right now and the iso is sitting at 1.4GB in size. I also took off Timeshift and put back on Systemback. I am aware of no support but it is easier to use for most people. I do have working iso's built. I will be doing a final one soon after I fix all of the little stuff and it is tested by a few testers. This is pretty stable but only time will tell.

Release Announcements / New ISO suggestions
« on: November 08, 2018, 05:55:07 PM »
I am hoping to release an updated ISO in December. I am going to try a few things and if it works then I am hoping UEFI will work, if not then the release will be an updated version so updates will not take so long. Please add suggestions to this thread on what to include or take out please.

Release Announcements / SuperGamer V4 Release
« on: July 03, 2018, 09:59:17 PM »
We are about to release a new version that has been done a different way. Putting into car terms: it has the look and feel of the old with a new chassis and engine. The iso is going to be 1.2GB in size. It is complete with Gimp 2.10, Timeshift, VLC 3.02 along with some tweaked cairo dock settings (new animated icons) and a fresh look with new wallpaper. Under a normal build the iso would be 1.8GB in size. I test built several iso's with different compressors for the squashfs. I went ahead and did a trade off and compressed the iso as much as I could to save download time and to not have a user need to install a whole lot of other things to use this, as a result, running live does take longer to get to the desktop. This has no effect once it is installed as it runs like a normal linux install.

Release Announcements / BETA ISO
« on: April 15, 2018, 08:38:14 PM »
I will be posting a beta test iso based upon Xubuntu 18.04 beta 2 with the Xubuntu stuff taken out. I have not rethemed it yet and it has the old graphics from my SuperGamer series, there is a plan to do a cleaner graphics. Plymouth is messed up, using text mode now, and I fixed the ldconfig.real file that Ubuntu ships with as well as a few other issues that I'm not going to get into. I know on the second reboot from an install it looses resolution from a VirtualBox install and you have to log back into the account manually. I did not include Gimp or OpenJDK. I do not have Firejail installed for a second layer of protection for Chromium and I do not have the check for pepperflash checking everyday for updates. I also used a 3rd party installer that you select an icon from the desktop to install. The iso is 1.3GB in size at this point and may get bigger for some additional software to make a release. I need this tested so I know what is wrong so I can fix things. So please give Feedback. The iso will be posted on Monday as well as on the website. I will post a link here for a direct zipped folder with md5sum a sha256 file.
