I used to play to Neverputt on Ubuntu. It's 1.5 version which is proposed. 1.6 version could be compiled ?

This is used in GNOME and KDE software installers to add the application description and some screenshots. We'd love to showcase more applications, but without the extra data file we can't. The AppData file needs to be installed to /usr/share/appdata/ on Linux and the basename needs to match the .desktop basename. It would also be great if you could integrate the file with your translation system (e.g. intltool) to make the descriptions translated.
See people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/appdata/ for more details; thanks!
Question: I'm new to the forum, so maybe I missed a discussion on this topic, but I've never been able to change the camera angle, either on the old version, or now the new version, UP or DOWN so I can see where I'm at and/or where I'm going. It's a continuing frustration on an otherwise super program. Is there a trick I'm not aware of, or is this just an accepted fact until a fix is programmed?
Thanks for any help!]]>
jambalaya happens to be one of my favorites, and I just recently reinstalled the neverball/neverputt on a new computer. I went looking for my new levels and came across the jambalaya. The only way I could get this game to work is for some reason it would not play on my windows 7 unless I removed both the htholese.zip and the htholesh.zip I don't know why. Well I got to goofing off on the new computer and unzipped all of the files and put them in the folder (I forgot not to unzip them) and I am back to square one again jambalaya won't load into the game. I have tried everything. except for removing the other two mentioned files above. They just happen to be mixed up with the other levels too. So is this a compatibility issue with the other two levels or what? Do I need to uninstall and reinstall neverball? Your help is much appreciated.]]>
As my friend and I are continuing to play rounds and rounds of Neverputt, we've come up with a couple of ideas that would help make the game more workable/enjoyable.
1. There appears to be some bugs that cause the ball to either go up in the air (and keeps going,) or it won't stop (thereby preventing the next player from taking his turn,) or some other strange position which results in the same, the game not able to continue. What would help is to create a kind of bypass option (an assignable key) that would force the ball to be placed at the nearest stable position or the last position that the ball was "putted" from. This way the game could continue without having to start over.
2. It would be great to be able to play individual maps (or holes) within courses by themselves (without having to play the entire course.) Perhaps a separate button and window could be created that would list all the the individual Neverputt maps (or holes) available to play.
I'm not sure how much coding would be involved in making these changes but I think they would very helpful for the game.
I've installed a copy of Neverputt on an older system (Celeron 900, 384 MB's of memory, Ensoniq 1371 sound card and a Radeon 7500 PCI video card,) running Precise Puppy 5.6.1 and have discovered that around the second or third hole of the first course (haven't tried any of the others,) it will lock up the system tighter than Fort Knox. I've had to shut it down using the power button.
Is there a way I can figure out what's going on and possibly correct it? If more information is needed, let me know what specifically.
A friend of mine loves the music in neverputt and expressed interest in getting a copy of them on an audio CD to listen to. Is it permissible under the GPL to extract the files from the source code and burn him a copy?
I had a look at the license and the section that says, "You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program," made me wonder. If it is ok, do I need to give him a copy of the source code along with the music?
I appreciate the help. :-)]]>
