Request for Port ideas

Hello everybody,

If you have an idea for a port post it here.
Please use these guide lines before considering a port:

1. The source code must be available. 
2. should be portable to 320x240 resolution. 
3. Remember we have very limited mouse support so not RTSs. 
4. Preferably SDL based games (but not a must) 
5. Not yet ported to symbian. 
6. Must be codded in C or C++ (no python, VB, C# or such nonsense) 
7. OpenGL is allowed (but this limits the target audience)

    ReplyDelete
  16. but why ? is it much difficult or so?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yeah it is not easy.
    Converting GL to GLES code is a pain...

  18. Maybe you can use the source game Quake? Three of the ported on smartphones, with the first part and the second run on smart phones without 3D accelerator. Maybe on the basis of these sources can make its shell for Hexen 2?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes I understand, but Hexen 2 also supports software rendering ...

    ReplyDelete
  20. And yeah maybe you can use some code of quakes... Hexen 2 is running on id Tech 2 (slightly modified) so like quake or quake 2 .....

    so ? :-D

  21. http://xmoto.tuxfamily.org/
    this one is quite good, using SDL :)

    Also any chance you add support for 360x640 / 640x360 resolutions for your ports?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hexen one by Anotherguest is out!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ports Ronen K well go to 360x640 / 640x360, tested on N97

    ReplyDelete
  24. So what Ronen K ? What do you think ?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like the xmoto idea, will add it to the list.

    I cannot do 360x640 or any other than 320x240 resolution because I do not have direct access to that hardware.
    And it will be a cold day in hell when I spend any money on a touch only phone.

    R.K.

    ReplyDelete
  26. OK, yeah Xmoto should be good :-) .
    And would be good if you add support for the latest SDL:

    Source:
    http://koti.mbnet.fi/mertama/downloads/sdl-1.2.14-s60-2.4.4.zip

    SIS:
    http://koti.mbnet.fi/mertama/downloads/sdl-1.2.14-s60-2.4.4_armv5.sisx

    PDF:
    http://koti.mbnet.fi/mertama/downloads/S60SDL_2.4.4.pdf

    and BTW:N95 4Ever ;-) ..
    Thanks !!

  27. Raptor Call of the shadows would have been awesome
    but it is not open source.
    So no go.

    R.K.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thanks for all the ports! I appreciate the works. I'm reaallyy excited for the OpenXCom port.

    Would Cave Story be possible? It has been ported to the gp2x and psp: http://www.cavestory.org/downloads_game.php

    Perhaps the SDL roguelike game POWDER?: http://www.zincland.com/powder/

    Thanks again for the ports :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. Speedfx,
    Cave story is not open sourced.

    Powder though is possible i'll add it to the list.
