Track Mania Nations Forever

Reusing this snap

You can use this snap as a reference for creating snaps of other WINE compatible 32-bit Windows applications or games. Here are the main things you'll need to modify:

  • Change the meta data and apps: and parts: names from tmnationsforever.
  • Modify the command: to reference the executable the application/game should launch.
  • If you can't redistrbute the application/game use INSTALL_URL: to reference a web accessible installer.
  • Modify the install_app() and launch_app() functions in snap/scripts/sommelier to suit the application/game you're snapping.
  • Modify the TITLE and NOTICE in snap/scripts/sommelier to suit the application/game you're snapping.
  • If you can't redistrbute the application/game use INSTALL_URL: in the environment: of the main command: to reference a web accessible installer.
  • Some games require a virtual desktop to function correctly. Add VIRTDESKTOP: 1 to the environment: of the main command: to enable virtual desktop or set it to 0 or remove it completely to disable a virtual desktop.
  • Some applications/games require that WINE DLLs are overriden, you can specify then via DLLOVERRIDES: in the environment: of the main command:.
  • If the application/game requires some winetricks to work then you can specify them via TRICKS: in the environment: of the main command:.

Here's an example environment: that shows how to use some of the capabilities outlined above:

    environment:
      WINEPREFIX: "$SNAP_USER_COMMON/.wine"
      DLLOVERRIDES: "mscoree,mshtml=" # Prevent pop-ups about Wine Mono and Wine Gecko
      INSTALL_URL: "http://files.trackmaniaforever.com/tmnationsforever_setup.exe"
      TRICKS: "winxp corefonts d3dx9_43"
      VIRTDESKTOP: 1
      LC_ALL: "C.UTF-8"

One other point of interest is that yad is staged in the snap and a faux zenity script is included that execs yad. We do this because yad is argument compatible with zenity but pulls far fewer package dependencies.

If you have any questions about creating snaps of WINE compatible Windows applications then post in the Snapcraft forum.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
