I don't know if anyone here has ever played Scorched3D (the game based off of Scorched Earth), but it's my favorite game and I decided to set up a server for it. It seems as good a use as any for a retired IBM Power3. I have the server working properly, with the exception of stats. It's listed currently on the official Scorched3D server list. I haven't actually gotten the game play working yet, but I can get to the startup screen and start the server from there. Of course, now I've learned to start the server from the command line.

scorched3d is currently masked for ppc64 by missing keyword, but after adding ~ppc64 to the ebuild and package.keywords file, it appears to me that it works just fine. I'll probably be submitting a bug report/feature request on it soon. Hey, if I can't get a good gui going, I might as well use it as a server for something fun/useful.

If anyone here plays Scorched3D, please give it a "look see" and tell me what you think.

I just submitted a "feature request" bug report. We'll see if this gets added. If nothing else, a ppc64 can be used as a game server. After all, these things are built to be servers.
