Topic: Question About SDL
Replies: 3
Views: 2148

what modification would need to be done to port it to other systems? Depends on how you make the game in the first place and on how much resources the game will use (how heavy it runs). Also, because SDL is open-source, couldn't I hypothetically take any game written in SDL and port it? No. You don...

Well, the Scumm-games look still quite good when played at a 16:10 ratio. At least it would be pixel perfect scaling (with probably not that much more coding, in case of just pixel doubling). I am not sure about you, but for me also SCUMM games look quite squashed with 16:10 ratio. I would agree wi...

[...]Is there any [...]technical issue with this? I think you slightly underestimate how much work this will turn out to be. Sound is handled differently by differed game engines in diffident situations. In many cases the sounds are not distinguishable files but big archives with a number index. (l...

There is a nightly (development build) here:
http://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html

I'm not a WiMo user myself so I don't actually know for sure if it is working and/or updated, but the link claims it is of the 1.2.x branch.

Figured out how to do the map (and have it auto-update) without eating too much resources.

Personality I can recommend Doomsday (Doom and more) and DarkPlaces (Q1). Also, people who are interested in this may want to take a look at Warsaw . It's not a source port but free and OSS. Great for a quick death-match at the office. Edit: It seems you messed up most links, there are are extra " c...

From the UI design point of view, there is another reason why no setting should be called "Disable ..." - the setting is represented by a checkbox, which can either be checked (enabled) or unchecked (disabled) - the enabled state of the checkbox representing the disabled state of some functionality...

VERY nice! :) I have several originals, tell me if you need a tester! There is only one required game file for classic mode, its the big beefy diabdat.mpq file. For Hellfire mode you additionally need hfmusic.mpq, hfvoice.mpq, hfmonk.mpq and hellfire.mpq. If you could compare the exact byte size of...

Bobdevis' Diablo and Hellfire project

This has nothing to do with ScummVM or Residual, but you guys inspired me to take on a project in the same spirit and of similar aims that I feel like sharing about here. When the time comes I will roll a proper site and Source-forge page, but for now please accept this quite off-topic thread. I am ...

I am kind of wondering now if it there is a way to compress non-destructively but a lot tighter then flac.

Maybe an extremely high-load method exists that would become practical once even phones have more then a couple of proc cores and OpenCL-like mass parallel processing arrangements.

I admit I have never done this, but what I would do first is just follow the instructions on how to build ScummVM itself with MinGW and obviously substitute ScummVM with ScummVM-Tools.

Then, If I would hit a specific problem I could not resolve, I would post in the Help and Support forum.

I guess destructive audio compression will not go away soon. Heavy traffic sites (like YouTube) will continue to opt for it. Personal music collections can go destructive compression free on a large scale as soon as we hit the Peta-Byte harddisks and the Tera-Byte phones. I wouldn't see the point of...
