PowerslaveEX source port?

Post#1 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 6:29 pm

So people have discussed how great it would be to have source ports of Duke Nukem 3D(That actually WORKS) and Doom 64 EX. While those are valid requests as those are some of my favorite games, what about PowerslaveEX?

For those not aware, the original PC and Saturn version of Powerslave aka Exhumed in Europe, was inferior to the PSX port. Well the guy who brought us a native PC version of Doom 64, also worked on bringing the PSX version of Powerslave to PC and also released the source code for it.

I think it would be extremely awesome to have this game on the Dreamcast. What say you?

Edit: You can download the full game here if you would like to play it on PC.

the problem is the code uses SDL 2.0, and AFAIK, KOS only supports SDL 1.2

that, and i'd assume the code wasn't written with a 16mb RAM \ 200mhz CPU target in mind, like Duke 3D, Doom, and Quake were

looks like a cool game though

Damn yeah you are right. I checked and Doom 64 EX uses SDL 1.2 though.
