Word War Vi is a side-scrolling shoot 'em up in the retro '80s style.
I wrote a simple ebuild, but it does not install properly. I'm new at this stuff.

Initial ebuild, full of beginner's errors.

A new, working ebuild with a lot of help from the #gentoo-dev-help (especially gentoofan23). :)
Needs patch (see below).
Created attachment 157317 [details, diff]
A needed DESTDIR patch for Makefile.
Works for me on AMD64 with USE="-portaudio" (as it needs portaudio-0.19 and I'd rather not use a masked ebuild just to have sound).
...and just when I submit a working ebuild for 0.14 I notice that 0.15 has come out!
Anyway, just renaming (or copying) the 0.14 ebuild and patch to 0.15 works. :)

New ebuild, cleaned up taking into consideration Mr.Bones' wise words.

This is an improved ebuild that applies more to the Right Way of Doing It(TM).
Sadly, it does not work yet. It's probably the patches' fault.

This is the patch that conforms more to the Right Way of Doing It(TM) and accompanies the "testing games-action/wordwarvi-0.15" ebuild.
Sadly it does not work yet, due to me not understanding yet how things are done.

That's my ebuild for Word War vi. It looks like crap maybe, but it works. I hope that they can be merged into something usefull. (:
Version 0.21 is out and I think this ebuild + patch could be worth trying. It works for me (with USE="-portaudio") and I think it finally incorporates The Right Way to Do It(TM).
You're free to enjoy ...erm, play-test it ;)
I tried it on AMD64, but it should work on X86 just as good. (and probably other arches as well).

Working ebuild of the (currently) latest WordWarVi release.

Patch for accompany the 0.21 ebuild. This time incorporating the 'games.eclass' variables.
Next step would be adding the USE="joystick" flag, but for that I would probably need to write another 'Makefile' patch and put it into a 'if' statement. And I'm not sure that's the ideal way to do it.

Fixed 'LICENSE' to include the right CC licenses of included art as well.
wordwarvi-0.22.ebuild added to portage.
1) Yay! Word War Vi is in Portage! :D
2) Aw, did I make that many mistakes in my ebuild? :/ ...I'll get better, I promise!
