The port in shar format.
Inspired by Lutris. Homura is a launcher that makes it easy to run windows games/launcher just with one click on FreeBSD.
The Windows emulation is provided by Wine

Updated the sums
One thing I would like to see before this lands is an update the the #! to not be "#!/bin/bash" as per:
IIRC there are other examples as well (when i tested this out a week or so ago).
I don't know if that needs to be a PR filed on the github repo or not. But just want to flag that pretty obvious linux-ism in the scripts.
Per our standards the portname should be all lowercase.

If you are going to add this Ports, please remove any references to Lutris from documentation. Quite a few people seems to think your 500 LOC bash script is a program of comparable complexity to Lutris (which is, like, two orders of magnitude larger, I think). Those are not very smart people to say the least, but it what it is. This script *will* be recommended as alternative to Lutris and it *will* leave people disappointed due to wrong expectations.

Thanks, that makes sense. Of which documentations exactly?
btw i only wrote that i was inspired by it and not that this should be or is (like) lutris.

Yeah, I get the desire to acknowledge the other project, that's ok and usually is not an issue. It's just that I'm looking at Phoronix article (https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Homura-FreeBSD-Gaming), which plainly states "Homura is akin to CrossOver or Lutris". A few more iterations of that bullshit and you won't be able to recognize any traces of your original statement.
Even that normally shouldn't be a problem, but considering that it's already hard enough to get anyone to take FreeBSD gaming seriously, I think it makes sense to be more careful with managing expectations.

Sure, that's wrong and I've tried to stop it before. I have now left a hint in my documentation that Homura is not comparable to lutris or the something bigger similar.
