Re: What programs are you lacking on Raspberry Pi

I'd like to see Steam on RPi. Not that I would try playing anything natively, but Steam home streaming would be nice. I think everyone here agrees that Moonlight can't be the only solution since it only works with Nivida GPU's and not with AMD. Here's the steamlink SDK, perhaps it could be used to g...

Re: Speeding up Dosbox

I finally got a chance to compile a copy of dosbox last night for the pi3, without even doing anything fancy or even putting in SDL2. a Doom timedemo3 benchmark that would run about 18fps on a heavily overclocked pi2 runs about 30fps on a pi3 without any overclocking, stretched to full screen and w...

Re: Making a 3D FPS game with Pi in mind?

Agh, I think that making anything with Quake 1 engine/Darkplaces might be too hard for me. :oops: First off, I can't find any documentation for noobs like me. Secondly, now I only know how to make maps, but that's not gonna get me nowhere with this project. I wanted to make a complete game. I'm used...

Re: Making a 3D FPS game with Pi in mind?

Excellent! Let me know if you need a beta tester for anything you create. Darkplaces is a permanent fixture on my Pi2B, so I'm ready to test anything at any time. :) I will let you know! I will update this thread whenever I make some progress. This may take a looooooong time but I hope it's worth it!

Re: Making a 3D FPS game with Pi in mind?

There is already a very good FPS game engine that's multi-platform (including the Pi) called DarkPlaces. It's primarily designed to run old Quake engine maps. Free Quake level editors are still available. TrenchBroom springs to mind. I only mention this incase you were considering creating somethin...

Making a 3D FPS game with Pi in mind?

Hi! I have made some simple games with Unity, and I would like to get off my comfort zone and make something completely different. I'd like to make a simple 3D FPS game for Windows, Linux and Mac, but it would also work on Raspberry Pi. I think I would make it open source so anyone can contribute. I...

Re: Emulation on the Pi3: Initial Testing

Could you give Dosbox games a try?

I really want to see how Daggerfall performs, since if it plays better than on Pi2, I know what I'm buying next, lol. :lol:

Re: Speeding up Dosbox

If you enable the dynamic recompiler for ARM, it's quite a bit faster. Use an SDL2 version (SDL 2.0.4 has perfect Pi support) I think the Retropie version is the one with dynamic recompiler? I'm not sure. And where could I get this SDL2 version of Dosbox? Google tells me nothing, or I don't know ho...

Re: Speeding up Dosbox

I have a pi3 on the way and dosbox will be very high up on the list of things ill try out. Could you share the binary of your Dosbox? I mea...

Re: Speeding up Dosbox

Is there any way to make Dosbox run some games a little faster? ...games like Daggerfall or Network Q Rac Rally Championship run very sluggish and dont seem to ever reach even 10 fps. YMMV, but I don't consider anything truly playable unless the framerate is at least 20FPS. That would require the "...

Hi! Is there any way to make Dosbox run some games a little faster? I have Dosbox SVN version, that was specifically built for RPi. It came with Retropie installation. It runs some games really well, like Stunts. But games like Daggerfall or Network Q Rac Rally Championship run very sluggish and don...

Re: Want to make a Space Exploration Simulator....Dont know

How would I create a vast emptiness of space in pygame that the player can just move through to start with??? Usually, in game world, you have this emptiness of space already. (I'm not sure about PyGame but in Unity you have just lots of free space.) Basically, you just need to create a "scene" whe...

Re: Windows games with Exagear Desktop

So far I have only tried SkiFree and some older windows games.

SkiFree works just fine, but games like Chips Challenge don't, unfortunately.

Re: Problems with the OpenGL drivers (weird pink line)

Oh I see, well I guess I was a bit too impatient, heh.

I do hope that my post has been useful in some way though.

For now I shall go back to not using the OpenGL drivers then, unless someone has an idea how to fix these problems. :)
