Gtk2 GameName

What's that? 

The Gui GTK2 GameName is a clone of the GameName Program written by Gurth for Windows. It can be used to generate random names (either compleately random or taken from the original *.nam files). I did not include all features of the original program (no animated window title - sorry), but it does it's job.

To run the binary from this page you need

That should be all, if not please contact me so I can update this list.

To install it, just extract the tar file to some dir of your choice and run the binary (gamename). I have not jet figured out the way to use make with the GTK2 bindings and therefore there are currently no RPMs.

To compile the sorce you'll need

I compiled the program with FPC version 1.9.6, if you use another compiler, you may have to alter the code.
