Not as challenging when IM_A_BIG_FAT_CHEATER is defined: see main.c for cheat keys...

To get oss sound working for all oss applications, add following to

# load OSS compatability modules

u8sand commented on 2014-01-20 03:30

Please make the following changes:
- /bin/cp -f /usr/share/automake-1.13/config.guess .
- /bin/cp -f /usr/share/automake-1.13/config.sub .
+ /bin/cp -f /usr/share/automake-1.14/config.guess .
+ /bin/cp -f /usr/share/automake-1.14/config.sub .

Also for sound one needs oss support (alsa-oss if using alsa) should that be an optional dependency?

change automoc-13 to -14 or create a more perminant solution.
I also recommend putting alsa-oss as an optional dependency--if one wants sound in xgalaga it requires oss.

Adopted and updated:
- Fixed download link.
- Fixed compilation error.
- Added pixmap, .desktop file and readme to the package.

I didn't update to the version 2.1. So this pkgbuild is for the original game, written by Joe Rumsey.

Im not a developer or things like that :) but i saw the problems of the last version too,
and sad but i compare the performace whit the other galaga galaga++ and the last is better..
so i donno the future of this pakage O.o

I hadn't updated because I found that the new version had a lot of problems.
(Lots of crappy Debian patches needlessly applied.)

I will orphan this though and someone else can decide on what to do. Cheers.
