I used latest vesion from mercury. 

I used this command line 

../configure --prefix=/mnt/utmp/codeblocks/usr/ --disable-haptic --disable-directfb-shared --enable-video-directfb --enable-video-opengles --disable-video-opengl --disable-opengles-shared


and commented lines 246&247 of video/x11/SDL_x11Keyboard.c to avoid segfault once package.

This is pretty nice news, its a test Ive wanted to do to see if the X11 code worked as is, as I have some ideas to make SDL2 a bit better.

Looking at those lines is it XKeysymToString that causes the problem?

yes it is, but only once in  PND. It was fine inside codeblocks environment. I guess some "dlopen" inside X11, but didn't found wich updated lib was missing inside the PND, so I commented the line.

Dirty hack. but it works.

Oh :(

Sorry, looks I didn't test enough. I will be out of wifi network I think for a few next days (not sure), so I won't be abble to update.

I think it should work if codeblocks is launched.

New build on the repo. It should run this time. I added an export to define folder of locale string of X11 inside the RickyD PND, and it looks like this fixed the Segfault.

Build 02

-----------

  •  Added XLOCALEPATH export, the PND should runs now.

Runs perfect now. The best looking version I ever played. 

Thanks for correcting. :D

Nearly perfect.

The stick (Action + Right/Left) doesn't have any effect.

I already played the Nintendo Wii version of Rick Dangerous.

There the Stick blocks enemies /or stuns them. Don't know).

Here the stick has no impact. Rick dies when the enemy touches him with stick active.

Maybe the hitboxes if the enemies or the collision bubble of Rick are/is too big.

Seems like Rick dies even when the enemy doesn't touch him but shortly before.

You have to lay down bombs to kill enemies..

I have to check the real use of the stick on an emulated original... I my memory, it I only used it to make the bat fly. I barely beaten level 1 though (was it on CGA 8086 or my VGA 386SX?), I may not knewn the full use of it.

How is RickyD different from XRick ? (Gameplay, graphics, sound, levels, performance, …) ?

I have played XRick (no screenshot in repo, but visual memory in my mind), and from the impression of the RickyD screenshots would say that the graphics of XRick are possible with less resolution, but more fine-grained & love to detail, as opposed to the rather oversmoothed tile design (synthetic impression, less craftmanship/artwork, looking more like cheap rendering) as seen on the RickyD screenshots.

Well, RickyD features an easy way to add graphics and levels. That's some improvement over xRick :)

I tested right now.

xRick: Stick has  an impact to enemies.

RickyD: Stick has no impact.

One of those games is wrong.

EDIT:

I couldn't make the bat fly either on Rick.D.

Stick seem too short.

EDIT 2:

xRick: The bat flys when te stick touches it.

So there IS a stick problem aith RickyD.

EDIT 3:

Wikipedia says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rick_Dangerous

Gameplay
Rick can jump and climb, and carry a limited amount of dynamite and ammunition for his gun. The gun is Rick's main means of disposing of enemies, although most traps that can kill Rick can also kill his enemies if used correctly. The dynamite sticks are generally used for puzzle solving, such as by blowing up certain blocks. (Of course, some of them fly towards the explosion, potentially killing Rick in the backfire). Rick is also armed with a pogo stick that allows him to paralyze enemies with split-second timing.
