ScummVM on the crowdfunded GCW-Zero?

Post by cavinrocks » Sun Jan 27, 2013 11:01 am

Soon there will be a new handheld gaming device, the GCW-Zero.
It's from gamers for gamers, the OS is, as I know, Linux based.
I really hope there is gonna be a ScummVM port for this device, maybe the Linux version will run on it. More information and the abillity to be a backer (37 hours last) you'll find HERE.

Greetings from Germany

I am one of the backers, so most probably yes.

Um, there's no reason to masquerade links to code patches....
http://paste.ubuntu.com/1593035/

Having said that, the patch is pretty minimal, and reuses most of the functionality from the dingux backend. I assume that this is to be expected, since both Dingux and GCW-Zero are *nix based... so if it's that easy, then perhaps the dingux executable works out of the box?

The GCW Zero is running an OpenDingux based distro- the only issue here is that the GCW Zero boasts a FPU, which is the reason of the above patch. There's still the need of a proper way of handling the analog controller, which shouldn't be so hard.

And I already have ScummVM running on the GCW Zero, the above patch does exactly that. (I'm one of the developers of the Zero)

I masked the Link because this forum requires a minimum of 3 posts before you're allowed to use links (As to keep spambots at bay I'd suppose)

Thanks.

A little treat for you guys.

I still haven't got it, and the author just keep feeding us with promises.

I consider it was just a ripoff.

sev: According to the site, stock of the units have been shipped to resellers:
http://www.gcw-zero.com/store

Thinkgeek shows this as in stock and I doubt that is misleading:
https://www.thinkgeek.com/product/168f/

I would suggest e-mailing Justin Barwick, CEO of GCW directly about this at gcw@gcw-zero.com ...

Ah...

It appears Justin has had health issues and that is probably the cause of the delays.

*sigh* As with all Kickstarters, it is very "caveat emptor" :/

So glad I heard that ScummVM is now available for the GCW Zero :D thank you very much!!

Edit: digged out my never-used GCW, installed Scumm, tested it... wow this device really sucks, back to the closet!
Rather game on my PSP!
