i am new to Lutris but i really love this software tool.
While i was testing out, what Lutris is capable of and i was missing a “feature”.
In Kodi, you can have access to Retro Games via an Add-On called IAGL which accesses the Internet Archives for ROMs.
As far as I understand, Lutris install scripts are capable of automatic downloading and unzipping file (at least the free “The Elder Scrolls II - Daggerfall” installer is doing something like this).
About the Legal concern:
As the IAGL Addon and the Internet Archive says, these files are only
‘for the purpose of preservation or archival reproduction of published digital works by a library or archive.’ …
“Some of the content available through the Archive may be governed by local, national, and/or international laws and regulations, and your use of such content is solely at your own risk”
So the installer must have at least a Disclaimer for that.
But as the Lutris page states, it has "A focus on video game preservation ".
So i think that for a lot of retro gamers this would be a nice addition.
If this is in the interest of the developers, can I/the community submit installers for Retro Games accessing the Internet Archive?
Thanks in advance
