Discussion in 'DragonBox Coding Compo 2012/2013' started by Linux-SWAT, Nov 28, 2012.
The pre-alpha build system works, as the pre-alpha build works ^^.
As i'm staring at my brand new 1GHz (thxthxthx) compiling LO, i decided that today is a good day to give some secret informations.
So 1- I have a codename (decided it a the very beginning of the compo announcement).
2- I also just found, well, kinda logo.
3- And the scoop is that ... (drum roll) ... a Pandora is needed to run the project.
Hope i don't spoiled too much ^^' .
1st post updated and project name revealed.
Soleil and blue? I don't get it...
Linux-SWAT, you realise that photo is too big for a Pandora screen, right? Let alone Wiz etc.
But the Sun is big !
Okay, 600x600 is better ?
lol, I was kidding (winking eyes). I have no idea if 600x600 is better for what you're doing. Obviously if you need to zoom in (showing partial to the screen), the bigger the better usually
Good luck on your entry
Do you participate ?
Maybe. Depends how much time I get. I was thinking of porting my British Bulldogs game that I've made for a Christmas getaway this year, but it's designed to run off 8 joysticks on one machine (no network code), and it uses Allegro 5. Obviously USB Hubs would let you play it on Pandora with a TVout, if I can get Allegro 5 compiled, which I'm about to try and do using you're slackware
A different game is also viable, but we'll see what I come up with
Hehe Google Earth on the Pandora is a cool idea ^_^
I am curious about what you will release
Hows about Marble?
Isn't Blue Soleil the bluetooth software thingy?
Didn't work on it today, but here's some censored preview:
Don't know if this would be helpful or not, but there's a raspberrypi port available:
Well, this looks like GRUB (or some other boot loader). I'm assuming there's more to it than that though?
Hmm, will have a look. Thanks
I added a new menu entry this morning, and it's cool because it was on my TODO.
Some censured entries are not on my TODO, but i'd like to make them work.
Once all "normal" features are added, i have a very special one to build, and this will be the main job.
One more uncensored entry.
Hope i can post another tonight.
Ghost 4 Linux, so you can make image of your sdcards or attached hdds?
That sounds useful
Mmm let's say you have a part of it ^^.
I enjoy Ghost 4 Linux (G4L) because it never failed. Clonezilla is more userfriendly, but i had some trouble with it (bad images of a friend's work PC), so i don't want to hear about it anymore.
