I may be mistaken but I've created a world using the 0.4.16 AppImages and it appears that it has not generated the tin ores... I couldn't find any and it is not registered by Unified_Inventory. Are these AppImages the last 0.4.16-stable Minetest ?
Otherwise it's really handy to have this ;) Thanks !

Any chance of getting 0.5.0dev as an AppImage? I would really like to test 050dev while being able to keep 0416stable for the time being.

Thanks!

Is the download link still working? Loading takes ages (for me) and when loaded the site is full of random characters.

Why aren't you making these anymore? People need them.

Very interessting ... I was looking for a possibilty, to use Minetest on our school Debian-Distribution without installation. An AppImage seems to be a good idea. But we have a 32-bit System :-(

Okay ... I tried to find informations of how to create my own AppImage für 32 bit ... I found possibilities but ... that was not a simple thing.

Does anyone has more knowledge or a (short) description how to create a Minetest 32-bit AppImage!?

Thanks ... Birgit

PS: Is it possible to use Mods with that AppImage?

for mods, sure you can, the way you'd normally do, by installing in the right directory (~/.minetest/mods for linux, under %appdata% somewhere in windows, etc)
for making appimages...I guess the simplest would be to create a basic 32bit VM, and follow the regular steps?

appimages sure are nice, but not too easy to make
I know everything, exept what I know...
I have a secret..it's so secret even I don't know what it is

There is no 0.5.0 ... last was 0.4.17.1, and new is 5.0.0 ... they changed the version counting.
Server: still some months up maybe; webpage = deleted and github=deleted today

Interesting... didn't notice that at first.

It is possible to create a Minetest 32-bit AppImage.
With a lot of effort and a bit of research, I managed to create 32-bit AppImages for both 5.0.1 and 5.1-dev, client and server. You can download them here:

https://github.com/An0n3m0us/Minetest-A ... s/releases

Also, they can be used with mods. I built Minetest using the option to use the $HOME/.minetest/ folder. Just place your mods/games/worlds/texturepacks in there and it should work.
