    So, Here is "Not Pacman", a game from Stabyourself.net
     
    [​IMG]
    It's a Pacman where the pacman and the ghost are controlled sollely by the Gravity, you interaction is to rotate the maze. ​

    A video of the gameplay on the OpenPandora by Ingoreis.
    It's a game developed in Love. So the port is the port of the Love engine (v0.7.2 here), the Notpacman is simply the original love file.
    The build 01 has been entirely ported during GamesCom 2013 ;)
     
    It use the awesome libGL from lunixbochs (I had to disable the glBlendEquation), and I added some quicke and dirty fullscreen+downscale of screen res. Still, it seems some graphics are missing, but they are non-essiential here.

    Yep. That was the original plan in GamesCom, but it need a newer löve engine (0.8), and for now, this engine doesn't want to work. I have to debug that, but it's rather complexe (the hang is in a lua boot script), but yep, I want it too :)

    Lol, this game is too hard :D   but it's nice, thanks ptitseb. Do you know if there is a way to have à launcher for love engine's game? i remember we used gmenu2x selector browser on dingoo to choose the game, it was easier since there's no need to change the game itself to make it run on different device that support love.

    That shouldn't be big problem. I can do some zenity code to let find a file and launch it.

    It's löve 0.7.2, is that ok for the games you want to try?

    Yep, but it wasn't working too :(

    No idea why.

    I'll release the engine as stand-alone, tagged beta (because, in my few experiments, I mainly had Segfault & crash), but you may find playable games :)

    Ok, I'll put it just here for now, please test to see if it's viable and stable enough to go to the repo: love072.pnd

    I think I'm better at this one than at the regular game, actually.

    Yes, I'm thinking of that, but I have to understand the Hiscore ranking, because there is score, and time to beat the game...

    I think they write their hiscores in a textfile $HOME/.local/share/love/not_pacman (if that helps).

    As discussed earlier in this thread, the engine still has some bugs and games like not tetris 2 don't work, have you made progress with it?

    The file is redirected in appdata/notpacman/home/love/not_pacman/hiscoreA

    Problem is not the file, but the rules to define #1

    here is an example of a hiscorefileA. It's the one on my Pandora, where my kids have beaten the game (score = 244), but are fighting with time (lower is better), but where I have a lower score.

    mouse#2#244:75.9:alexan;244:83.5:loic;244:92.9:alexan;244:99.2:alexan;244:108.3:loic;244:127:loic;238:89.6:loic;238:91:alexan;227:85.5:seb


    So basicaly, I need 2 rules: Higher score, but for same score, lower time. I think it need some c4a upgrade.

    About other games, I'm still stuc with löve 0.8.0, where it just hang at boot.lua on... something, I don't know yet...
