I don’t have a lot of experience playing IF after the 90s. I now realize that was a very long time ago. So, would IF and games made by inform7 be considered textmode?
yes, i think so!
All inform games are primarily textmode. Though some games include (optional) graphics and sound. So a purists definition of textmode, would probably cause them to straddle the fence.
Textmode though is probably good for our (and most people’s) purposes.
cmus? Commandline audio software. Do folks consider those types as part of the textmode ascetic?
Mpd is kinda tricky in that it is a daemon, with no native UI. UIs talk to it to make music/sound happen. If mpd is textmode networkmanager is textmode and that strikes my gut as strange. Nmcli has a textmode UI but the daemon NetworkManager does not.
cmus strikes my gut as belonging. Because I think at the end of the day we’re talking about UI or default UI.
Yeah, I thought the same thing, and I wanted to examine this from that angle, to try to tease out the nuance.
Making my warez list I realized I didn’t have a reason to collect all the warez in one place, but plenty reason to make distinct lists.
textmode warez seems useful.
