Hello From Germany, Rhineland-Palatine :D

Hello folks :slightly_smiling_face:

I am an beginner from Germany, loving all small electronics, without getting too much into programming… Maybe a bit too stupid or just maybe too much work and too less free time…

Anyways…

Loving computers, video games and everything that’s not smelling like closed system, even when I have had practically all available gaming consoles since the 1990’s. All good and cool but I think that there is no better platform like one which lives by and for the community.

From dingoo to gpx wiz, arduboy (arduboy is atm the only open source gadget I own, but I got my pokitto today and I am afraid that my arduboy gets back in its box now… Only thing that keeps me not doing that is the fact that I love arduventure. (BTW… Any way to get arduventure on my pokitto? :smiley:)

At this moment I am checking the games disk and looking into available bins for the Pokitto.

I really love this little guy… Can’t describe how much I like it… Many thanks to Jonne and all people that made this happen!

So…

Is there any way to get old school ports like wolf 3d, arduventure running on my pokitto?

It would be so great…

Greetings, keep up the good work guys!

Hello from Czech, and welcome :slight_smile:

It wouldn’t be too hard to port, I’d even try to do it, but there is one problem about it – the assets aren’t released under a free license, so legally we shouldn’t be doing it. I once tried to fix this issue by creating free assets and a new game based on the engine, but haven’t yet finished it. If you feel like it, you can try to move the project further, I released all my work as free.

@jonne made a small wolf3d demo on Pokitto, but I think it’s not uploaded anywhere right now. He might be able to provide it.

Also a shameless self-advertisement – I’ve been working on an advanced raycasting engine and demos for Pokitto – it’s not released yet, but it’s available if you really want to play around with it. Take a look here (there are gifs, and bins you can try out):

You’ll fit right in, most people here are very pro open stuff, obviously :wink:


If you’re more into electronics and HW than programming, that’s totally fine, and you’re find a lot of topics to discuss here. For example

Thanks for the Infos :slight_smile:
Going to look into your stuff. I have much to learn, to see and enjoy. Thanks for the warm welcome. Maybe some day we will get arduventure and such… Time will tell

Greetings
