Ok so I finally, finally got the dam thing to run. I haven't actually tried playing the game yet, but it launches and the main menu shows, at least. May very well give it a run through tonight, it's been far, far too long.
A couple bugs for your attention though. Not sure if you can fix these, but.
Interestingly, the logos don't play when launching the game, it just goes straight to the main menu, although the outtro does play just fine. Also, when exiting the game, either wine or audiogame manager itself doesn't quite seem to realize that the game isn't running any more, the terminal has to be manually exited with Control + C. I did have to manually delete the config file to remove the game, as well.
Now that we know L works stuff will actually work, no pun intended, could you perhaps add judgement day to the list? Another rather excellent classic, if I do say so myself.
Thanks again for all of your hard work with this thing.
In some versions of wine the window does stay open like you said. This is something that happens on wine and it may go away when wine gets upgraded. Ubuntu tends to run a few versions behind. You could try upgrading to wine-staging and see if that fixes it.
Audiogame-manager itself is a terminal application. For the launcher part, it only calls the wine executable with proper parameters then exits. your terminal is left alone, and audiogame-manager doesn't do anything with it. It is possible to run audiogame-manager in a console. You do need to still have an X session, but the manager itself can run on pure console. So, if it were to try to exit the terminal, it would end up logging you out if it were ran from a console.
For the removal of games, see post above, I think gawk is the solution here.
I have tried on more than one occasion to add Judgement Day. It will not work. I don't know why. I have done everything I can think of, and it just won't work at all. I think wine must have something personal against Space Invaders type games, because I have tried adding several of them, and none of them work. This doesn't mean I have given up on them, but for now I am stuck.
