New Game Release For All Zaurii And Linux Pcs
« on: May 15, 2006, 07:15:49 am »
Hi

I've just finished writing a new game for all Zaurii and Linux PCs called Pipepanic.

It's a pipe connecting game similar in a way to Pipe Mania but more like Pipeman for Qtopia.

It's written for SDL, runs in all resolutions using either low or high resolution images and plays in both landscape and portrait modes.

I haven't got it on elsix yet but I'm going to do that next. I've attached the ipk if you are interested in playing it.

For screenshots visit the project page - http://thunor.org.uk/pipepanic/screenshots.html

[img]http://www.users.waitrose.com/~thunor/pipepanic/images/pipepanic02.png\" border=\"0\" class=\"linked-image\" /]

I have tested it on my SL-5500 extensively but I haven't got a newer model. I have no reason to doubt its compatibility with other models because I ported GNU Robbo a while back and I got that running on everything with the help of you chaps.

Let me know if there's a problem.

Regards,
TheGreenKnight

Looks great.

Can you please add it to the Zaurus index? http://www.handheld-linux.com/swi

Is it Open Source? If so I would like to compile for OpenZaurus.

Yes it is open source.

Source code licence: GNU GPL v2
Artwork licence: Free Art Licence

Download the source, and if you have the default ARM development environment set-up then simply typing 'make -f Makefile.arm' will compile it and create an ipk. In any case you can edit the simple Makefile and use CC LINK CFLAGS LDFLAGS LIBS appropriate to you.

handheld-linux: I will add it to the Zaurus Index.

My thunor.org.uk domain name seems to be unresponsive at the moment. If you are having trouble getting my site to load go directly via [a href=\"http://www.users.waitrose.com/~thunor/pipepanic/]http://www.users.waitrose.com/~thunor/pipepanic/[/url]

Regards.

It would be nice if people with a Zaurus that isn't an SL-5500 could confirm that it works please

I'm only assuming it does at this stage. Just state that it works and which model you have.

Cheers,

Thanks GreenKnight for building another game.

Thanks Mickey and Hrw for added it to OE and building it for OZ.

I'm sorry Hrw, but your ipk in the upgrades feed is broken. It's missing the pics, data(bmp files), and the desktop file.

I'll attach one that I have fixed for users to test on OZ/Opie.

For the 5xxx models you must hold on icon, and then add -320x240 to arguments.

Thanks again,

Greg

Great Game  If you want to play in "portrait" mode on a 5xxx model,you can add -240x320 instead

Man!  sweeet!

both games work on my c3200 at 640x480.

Very professional looking games.  It's up there with Lgames.  I am not sure if any library is needed but i do use all the zports sdl ipk files.

Thanks for saying it works on the C Series  It just needs libSDL and you have the right one.

I've got 4 more games I've created before in Javascript and Flash that I want to convert to SDL so I'm going to move on to a new project now.

Cheers,

My fault, can you do a ls -l on what should be inside?

Hi

I've created an ARM binary tarball for download and attached it.

Am I correct in assuming that this will work on all Zaurus ROMs? I don't know much at all about non-Sharp ROMs and I would like to know the answer to this question. Isn't the difference mainly the directory structure as far as installation goes? This information would assist me with future projects.

Regards,
tgk
