Introduction 🎤

Back when i started using FreeBSD, there was no useful utility to setup games or launcher in wine, so i created one myself.

Homura was developed from pure fun, so please do not take it too seriously.

Homura was created with some inspiration from lutris, but is not meant to be a substitute.

Description 📘

Homura is a launcher that makes it easy to run Windows games/launcher easily on FreeBSD by providing/applying the required fixes and workarounds.

  • The Windows emulation is provided by Wine.
  • The launcher menus are provided by Zenity
  • The most fixes that gets applied are provided by Winetricks
