It's possible, given that the source is available, but will be very difficult. Knytt (and Knytt Stories) is written in a game-maker package which hasn't been ported to the Pandora, so you'll have to translate it to a pandora-compatible language. I've looked at doing this myself for Knytt Stories as it's a wonderful game - but have put it on the back burner for now due to the amount of work involved. There is a DS version which might be do-able.

Downloaded, I'll take a look - no promises though, it'll be quite a lot of work and with a new baby here I may not get to it for a while. Someone else might have a bash though... :)


Edit: That's not the source code, from first look!

How about the source here?


Knytt Stories DS: http://code.google.c.../downloads/list


While I can't fully appreciate the amount of work involved, Dunny, anything you can do will get much thanks from me! Knytt Stories is one of my all-time favorite games!


Also found these Nifflas game sources...


Within a Deep Forest: http://www.ni2.se/files/game_sources/Within%20A%20Deep%20Forest%20(old%20and%20embarrasing).cca (Multimedia Fusion)

I would guess that for the DS project to have mention on Nifflas's own page, the project must have been endorsed by him personally. Maybe I (or someone who wants to port it) can contact Nifflas and ask about a Pandora version. He may provide the original/updated source for Knytt Stories.

It's open source. Here's the source link: http://niffpage.greywool.com/files/Sources/Knytt%20Stories.mfa


And it won't do you any good unless you're able to port Multimedia Factory too, or convert to a more sensible language, which is doubtful.

You wouldn't happen to mind if I can submit this as an openpandora rebirth competition app? hopefully enough people would be able to like this since this game is very interesting and well deserved to be likely port ;) I promise to credit you guys for helping me out! :D p.s definitely wanna get at

Unfortunatly that is, as knytt stories, a multimedia fusion project file and cannot be ported.


That is, there is nothing to be ported as such, but reading the clickteams website reveals that the developer version of mmf2 can export into Java.


So if anyone here has that version, we could try to run it that way.
