A short embedded manual should be useful... like the one attached... :)
I created also a test opk: https://www.sendspace.com/file/oc7ox4

Made a Tetris clone. It's something I originally put together a long while back. Over the last week made some improvements for the GCW-Zero like better randomization, an added score board, and the ability to speed up with button hold. If you make a highscore remember to enter in your initials before hitting start to save. Let me know if you find any bugs or have suggestions on how it could be improved or just want to look at the source and tell me that I can't script for spit. Hope you like it and thanks for playing.

Controls: d-pad to move blocks, B A L to rotate, X Y R to speed up, Start to pause and reset at game end. Select to quit.
Cool, looks great ;)

Excellent, glad to have a version of this awesome game on the zero. I'd like to put in a request to be able to rotate the pieces in both directions with different buttons. Perhaps A would rotate to the right, and B to the left? It would make it a lot easier to keep up once the pieces start falling faster!   ;D

But for some reason I can't make this OPK. If I extract the existing posted OPK with 7zip, change nothing, and repackage it using mksquashfs it won't show up on gmenu2x. Anyone able to package Love2D games into OPKs using Windows and and feel like writing a brief tutorial? If anyone feels like packaging Tetris I made an icon right before the download link.

Make sure you pack it using
Quote
mksquashfs ./dir/ out.opk -all-root -noappend -no-exports -no-xattrs
and that the executables (if any) have +x chmod set.

Thanks for listening to my feedback! Now all I need is to switch the A and B buttons around, my brain gets confused that the left button rotates right and vice versa.  :P

I was able to make an OPK with the Open Package Creator utility. Find it here: https://www.sendspace.com/file/hfajcs

I added the new icon you made, and edited the manual that Gab1975 made to reflect the control changes. Creating the OPK was no problem, I had to change the file extension from .zip to .love, and then in the OPK Creator, I had to make sure the executable was listed as 'love vztetris100914.love'. I'm not sure why, but when I linked the file, the field said 'vztetris100914.love' and it didn't work, so I had to add in the 'love' in front

@vonzippenstein: I think that it should be better open a specific topic for your game (VZ-Tetris) ! ;)

How did you do that? Open Package Creator gives me an error and won't output the opk if I add love before the love file. If I leave the field with just the love file it makes the OPK but it won't run on the GCW-Zero since it's not actually running love. And if I unpack it, change the .desktop file, then repackage it then it won't appear on gmenu2x.
Gonna try repackaging in Ubuntu with VM just to make sure Windows isn't clipping the +x chmod.
Here's the game with the A B functions swapped as requested. vztetris140914.zip

@Gab1975, soon as I get past the basics. This game is mainly a learning experience for Love2D and GCW-Zero.

The OPC gives an error message, but it's not a "real problem"... it's enough click "OK" and the opk is made in the right way... hereunder the error message snapshot:



(I use OPC 1.1.1 and Win7 64 bit)

PS: I made an opk with your latest vztetris file: https://www.sendspace.com/file/7cnfj3

Thanks. I was using an older version of Open Package Creator and am now able to build the opk with "love filename.love"

First I tried it out and it still wouldn't load correctly. It would load Love but not the game. I added the run.sh and run.sh~ files even though I'm not entirely sure what they do and repacked it and it still wouldn't run. Then I came back here and wrote a long frustrated and sarcastic post but before I submitted it I double checked with a changed the filename on the device and presto it worked! Changed it back to what I originally wanted then restarted and it also worked. First working love opk: vztetris150914.opk

Hey that's great! Sorry I didn't get back to you on the opk issue, I hadn't checked back here in a few days. But I'm glad you got it figured out. Honestly I don't know what I am doing, I just messed around with it until it worked!  ;)

vzTetris is nice; why not put it in the release index?

I have been playing Love2D games on my gameshell using Pico8. I imagined playing them on the GCW Zero would be similair... However I could not find Pico8 compiled for the GCW Zero. Does this mean I have to package each game into a OPK file in order to install and play them on a GCW zero?
