    Here is Tread Marks, the open sourced Tank Racer.
    [​IMG]
    This game is a Linux port of the Windows game that has been open sourced (it was a commercial game).

    Here a video of the gameplay on a Gigaherz pandora by @ingoreis

    It use gl4es for graphic, and can be a bit intensive, so you may need to go in the Graphic options of the game and lower the details.

    The nubs are setup as Joystick on Left and Mouse on Right, Left/Right clicks are on the shoulder buttons.
    You can change default nub assignment by modifying the 2 files ".leftnub" and ".rightnub" in the appdata/treadmarks/ folder.

    History log
    =========

    Build 02
    -----------

    • Removed Qt5 dependency
    Build 01
    -----------
    • Initial build
    • a few Pandora customization

    For the curious, you can see the sources here: https://github.com/ptitSeb/TreadMarks
    They compile and run on Linux. I thought that 64bits build didn't work, but in fact it seems it does. Feel free to experiment and report success / failures.

    Hi all :)

    @ptitSeb : thanks for porting this game to the Pandora ! It's running well (~30 FPS) on my Rebirth OC'ed @ 825MHz, with SGX driver 4.10 and settings to their lowest values.

    There's a pretty sad story behind this game though:

    Cheers, Magic Sam

    I just gave this a go on my GHz pandora at 1100MHz. I didn't time the framerate, but it wasn't 60fps, maybe 40fps max which is adequate for this type of game. Seems fun, although I didn't find out how to pick up more ammo and quickly ran out.

    I removed Qt5 dependency, by removing the Dedicated server (there was no menu for it anyway). PND is a bit smaller now (and it's easier to build).
