vegastrike error no config file found

I decided to try vegastrike and it will not start. I get the following messages from the terminal:

Registering codec ogg.
In path /usr/bin

What do I need to do to get it to work?

Did you install from games repo ?

I don’t see vegastrike in the games repo and I do see it in the main repo. Here’s the absolute url

So no, I did not install it from the packman games repo.
By the way, what diference does it make? I still have a problem using it regardless of the repo I got it from.

I think you have not configured community repos in YaST.
Kindly do that and you will understand the difference.
Linux games in openSUSE generally have a game package and data package
The data package for this is missing in main repos
I am not talking about packman games repo. :slight_smile:
I did not install the game yet. You may get it working if you installed from games repo
