Descent (d2x) On Zaurus Possible?
« on: February 04, 2006, 04:33:55 pm »
I was thinking that Descent would make a fun game for the c series zaurus sense we are able to attach mice and joysticks.  Has anyone attempted to compile it?  It is now open source in the form of d1x (descent1) and d2x (descent2).  D2x now also supports the descent1 data files so it would be a better port I think.


Someone compiled d2x  for pocketPC a while back so it doesn't seem that impossible.

Any takers?  When I get some time I want to set up a cross compiler and might try myself.

Sounds cool. D2 was a fun game. It would be a bit of a show piece
for Z users. Hope someone can get it working.

I tried recently compile d2x for pdaxrom and compiled OK runs ok till actual game starts, then I got segmetation fault. It needs some more skilled developer than me

I tried d2x out last week and I had exactly the same problem as merli. It compiles OK, it shows the menus and finds the descent maps/data files but crashes when the game should start.

d2x runs on the GP2X so it must be possible to get running on the Z- I'd love to play Descent under pdaXii13!

I think to use right flags for alignment of structures will help.... align on 32 bit etc ...
