Got new phone ... It's the N900..

Hello readers,

Good news I've got a new phone and it's the N900 probably the last great phone
from used to be all mighty Nokia.



Right now I'm in the process of acquainting myself with it's development environment
and probably soon will start porting stuff, hopefully some of you will find it useful.

I'm not dead, But Symbian is...

Hello everybody,

It's been a long time since my last update, there are few reasons for that.

I was working on my port and was almost at the end but encountered a very hard bug with
the sound system which was playing the sounds after a delay which made the game useless
and till this day I had not found a way how to fix this bug there
seems to be some problem with SDL_Mixer.

Nokia also has announced that they will stop supporting Symbian and switch to Windows platform.
There was also another company that did just that to survive but now is almost gone into obscurity, Palm.

These two factors together have demoralized me somewhat so right now porting has been halted.
I still have my n95, but the platform shows it's age which leaves me unwilling to support it for now.

Some updates

Hello all,
There have been very few updates lately because I'm working on a new port.
It is not one of the suggested one, but let me say this this is the first time this game has been
ported to any machine (it is originally ran in DOS) and the porting progress is very slow.
The game is quite old.

Request for Port ideas

Hello everybody,

If you have an idea for a port post it here.
Please use these guide lines before considering a port:

1. The source code must be available. 
2. should be portable to 320x240 resolution. 
3. Remember we have very limited mouse support so not RTSs. 
4. Preferably SDL based games (but not a must) 
5. Not yet ported to symbian. 
6. Must be codded in C or C++ (no python, VB, C# or such nonsense) 
7. OpenGL is allowed (but this limits the target audience)

OpenXCom port

Hello everybody,

As you know I am working on an OpenXCom port for the Symbian, I even have a running version.
But right now OpenXCom in not yet complete (see here: http://openxcom.ninex.info/index.php/about/)
and it would be a waste of time porting every single code change to Symbian.

So we will have to wait till that project is more or less complete (meaning that you can actually play the game from start to finish) until I make any further progress.
