News Roundup II

Hey everyone, the Prince of Persia modding community has been quiet on social media since early April, but we're back! So much has happened in the last 7.5 months that it's difficult to create a complete recap. Below are just some highlights. In random order. If anything important is missing, replie...

I experimented with rendering a menubar as an overlay, on this branch.
The transparency is nice.

Suggestion, maybe we should split this thread in two, one with posts about the Settings window, and one with posts about adding a menu bar.

Re: princed.org (phpBB forum + webpages)

Would be better to put less effort into Twitter/Facebook updates and post more often, to make news news. I agree fully, and I think somebody other than me should take up that task... I'm not good at keeping up with the flow of news. Yes, someone else should take over. It's now 7 months since any up...

By the way, how far did you get in the game?
After I'd obtained the passwords I only played it a bit more here and there to get a feel for the rest of the game.
Your screenshots (and accompanying texts) allowed me to see the rest of the screens and elements. :)

Looks like the Runen author wasn't all that worried about copyright violations.

Re: PoP videos / images

I found another picture with the Prince of Persia (PoP1 DOS) hidden among lots of video game characters: [...] In case anyone is wondering where he is: prince_location.png He looks quite odd without outlines, because most other characters do have outlines. The prince looks remarkably bad compared t...

Re: Forum spam

These auto-created user accounts have spam in their signatures. I guess this user is also a spammer: http://forum.princed.org/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2593 Yes.

Cool. So, how did you take it?
I know it's possible to get close to a skeleton by waiting for it to leave the current screen and return, but what key(s) to press?

Re: Settings window

Falcury, where it says "TODO: Save all settings" could you make it save all the INI settings to sPathFile. (sPathFile is already either SDLPoP.ini or mod.ini.) Of course there's no hurry, we're all busy with our jobs and such. I'm asking you because you've worked with/created the 'INI system' and a...

Re: Runen (1996)

I could get past that guard on level 3. As I wrote (edited)... [Edit: It is possible to run past the head and lose only 1HP, but after killing a second guard, the second head follows you and kills you anyway. I'll need save states for this...] ...you can just kill the first guard, run past its head...

While I'm not necessarily interested myself, it'd make sense to share them publicly, seeing you already put in the effort and it might potentially be useful to someone some day.

Re: Web-based PoP1 Port

A web-based DOSBox would be great, [...] DOSBox might be too old-fashioned. (What follows is technical, sorry.) I was originally thinking about using Emscripten ( Emscripten and SDL 2 Tutorial ) with SDLPoP, but for highscores I don't want the game to run (just) client-side, so SDL2_net would need ...

Version 2.0.7 has already been released:
https://discourse.libsdl.org/t/sdl-2-0-7-released/23279
https://www.libsdl.org/download-2.0.php
So has version 2.0.2 of both SDL_mixer and SDL_image.
