Re: Hurrican SDL - Turrican for the GNU generation

Hi blc! Its not a straight clone or remake of a previous Turrican game, it is a new game openly inspired by Turrican with modern OpenGL (ES or DirectX under Windows) graphics and fx. Nobody else has commented on the joypad situation under Linux either here or on Phoronix but as far as I can see joyp...

Re: Hurrican SDL - Turrican for the GNU generation

Pickle - he who ported Hurrican to Linux / SDL / Pandora - has actually got an Rpi himself although he has not yet got round to trying Hurrican on it. He has however gone to the trouble of helping me get it working on my Pandaboard so any keen Rpi gamers who want to beat the Hurrican port author to ...

Re: RPi Synth?

WillK: If you haven't done so already, you should read my recent (and first) thread posted in this forum which pretty comprehensively addresses your questions albeit using a Pandaboard instead of an RPi but its still 'how to create electronic music under ARM Linux': http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3...

Re: USB soundcard "Line-in" hardware suggestions.

PotatoeHandle: I know a few years ago there was a 'recommended devices' page either on the official alsa-project.org site or on its wiki but I can't find that now nor can I find (in my inbox after a short search at least) a recent discussion on this very topic that occurred on the Linux Audio Users ...

Re: PCSX-ReARMed on Pi

notaz has now updated the pcsx rearmed git repo so that the configure script runs without portets hacks and you should find that pcsx builds cleanly on armhf platforms now - at least it builds fine on Pandaboard Ubuntu 12.04 armhf now and after changing the sound driver option as I recommended above...

Re: Mupen64Plus - N64 Emulator for the Pi

Re: PCSX-ReARMed on Pi

Looking at portets modified pcsx, I'd say Pi owners should be able to get sound working by adding: SOUND_DRIVERS = sdl To config.mak then recompiling No-one uses OSS any more and sdl is often a better choice over ALSA because it often works with Pulseaudio whereas ALSA only apps can have probs with ...

Re: PCSX-ReARMed on Pi

portet:

notaz, the dev who added the ARM optimizations to PCSX to create this ReARMed edition, has told me that the GLES code is a bit buggy at the moment so probably not worth getting too excited about just yet.

Re: PCSX-ReARMed on Pi

Thanks very much for uploading this and sharing your fixes portet! I have got your RPi binary running wonderfully without any recompilation and with USB, PSX style joypad support under Ubuntu 12.04 on my 1Ghz Pandaboard - I get a steady 60fps at an average of about 66-70% CPU. This is incomparably b...

Re: ARM Linux JACK / music production success story

Hi Jon! I mentioned NEON in the above posting but neglected to mention the 466Mhz Tesla DSP sat doing nothing right now on my Pandaboard. I hope that one day I'll be able to use this with the TAL-Noisemaker synth and various other LV2 plugins (like the convolution reverb and CALF plugins etc. maybe)...

Re: Raspbian binaries now available (MESS, MAME, neogeo)

Hi SSilver2k2! I'm hoping to get a GLES(2) port of Q3 running on the Pandaboard. I have got a couple of versions to compile but they won't run. Is your Q3 port compiled from the RPi Q3 github tree? Seeing as you compiled it for Raspbian which is basically Debian (Ubuntu) armhf like I'm running here ...

Hurrican SDL - Turrican for the GNU generation

Most everyone who ever played games on one of the 8 or 16bit home computers will fondly remember the Turrican series. If you're one of those, or if you're looking for an impressive platform shooter for Linux then you'll be delighted to discover Hurrican has now been open sourced and ported to Linux ...

ARM Linux JACK / music production success story

Hi Raspbians! I have seen a few posts in this forum about people trying to get JACK running with the intent of using their RPi for music production. I have had some success with JACK and numerous top Linux audio apps running on my Pandaboard and I realise most of you won't be subscribed to the Linux...

Hi reefab! I was happy to hear you got GLES working under Q2 on your Pi as I'm trying to do the same with Q2 but on the Pandaboard.
