Could this be the wonderfulness of a piece of master craftmenship that was made by the great Edmund Mcmillen?

There are two versions on the repo - whats the difference ?
One's actually called "Aklabeth" and the other is "Gish". Both however are described as "2D Platformer where the player is a ball of tar" and PND Manager is really getting confused now.

From what I can see, they're also both the exact same size as well, double upload by mistake perchance?

When i was updating the gish pxml i based off Aklabeth and i forgot to change the app id, so when i updated the pnd it thought it was Aklabeth. I fixed it the Aklabeth pnd, so use the other one.

Its practically the same thing, although it is now using egl with raw framebuffer. You could try and rename the .gish folder and retry.

Ok thats helps, so basically the latest drivers dont work with X, which i what this defaulting to. You can get around it by creating and eglport.cfg. I was thinking it defaulted to raw fb, but it doesnt. I will add the eglport.cfg to the pnd later.

 

egl_mode=0

use_vsync=0

use_fsaa=0

size_red=5

size_green=6

size_blue=5

size_alpha=0

size_depth=16

size_buffer=16

size_stencil=8

Gish only shows a white background with some gray boxes on the buttom (the game menu?).

Either something it wrong with the drivers (I am using the original ones without having tempered with them), or this is the way it looks without game files. Would be nice to get instructions on which files have to go where ... and also mention it in the repo  ;)

Also, thanks! I'm looking forward to playing this game on my Pandora  :)

if its showing a white background and grey boxes make sure you have the gamefiles in the appdata folder.

This is normal - you have to provide the datafiles and put them into appdata.

Pickle should put a messagebox for user-friendliness I guess.

Mentioning that in the PND description would have saved me a download and a disappointment :)
