HEXEN + HERETIC don't work with "read only filesystem" error

I'll try it again later, but I think, I manually installed yesterday the new Hexen and Herectic versions and they ran fine with elta's rootfs.

Read Only FS Error is a sign that you cracked your FS on the sdcard. Try to backup and format it again.

Yeah Dingux often cripples the sdcard, safe way to prevent this is the poweroff function.

Hmm.. installed eltas rootfs and there is no sound in games.
Code: [Select]
Couldn't open SDL audio: No available audio device
But I like the 8 to 16 bit color conversion. Xrick works out of the box now :)

Thank you for your work  Elta !  all works good.
and one question - how can i make strafe left-right binded to L and R shifts on dingoo in HERETIC game?
by the way, the BEST controls i seen in CongoZombie's Doom port. its very comfortable to have L and R shifts for strafe in game.
-----------------------
added later:

this is very sad for me that i can't change control buttons in HEXEN and HERETIC  from game options menu, this is a bug or something - L and R buttons are can't bind to functions  :'(

Hexen 1.6.1: (Don't forget to copy the WAD file too!)
http://www.mediafire.com/?dhmmzidzynw

Heretic 0.2.1: (Don't forget to copy the WAD file too!)
http://www.mediafire.com/?dmiyzx2ztjj

These work extremely well, much better than before. Thanks a bunch Elta!

The controls change trouble - Heretic for Dingux original cfg file:

mouse_sensitivity      5
sfx_volume      10
music_volume      10
key_right      131
key_left      130
key_up      128
key_down      129
key_strafeleft      44
key_straferight      46
key_flyup      150

.............................. etc.
i'm interesteding this:
key_strafeleft      44
key_straferight      46


AFTER change in-game options --> controls setup - it has NO changes! i set the L and R shift buttons but i see in cfg file still:

key_strafeleft      44
key_straferight      46

and L, R shifts makes NO strafe in game
it makes impossible the strafe-around-the-target technics - you can't round strafe with one pressed "strife ON" button - otherwise, can't turning and strafing simultaneously - this is a total crush of gameplay (same for Hexen and all Doom-related engine games).
So, Elta, please, fix this bug and then we can play in 100% Heretic and Hexen!

Hello Elta.

I recompiled the SDL_image library with support for XPM, but do not know how to add to the rootfs, so I linked it statically with my application to be able to use it.

Anyway, your tutorial would be very welcome  ;)

Thank you.

You have to:

-install genromfs (on unbuntu system)
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install genromfs

- create two directories
Code: [Select]
mkdir romroot
mkdir rwroot

-mount the rootfs to romroot
Code: [Select]
sudo mount -t romfs -o loop rootfs romroot

-copy WITH SU RIGHTS (it won't work as a common user) the content of the mounted filesystem
Code: [Select]
cp -r romroot ./rwroot

-unmount the fs
Code: [Select]
sudo umount romroot

-modify the rwroot folder as you like

-create the new rootfs with genromfs
Code: [Select]
cd ./rwroot/romroot
genromfs -f rootfs

Hi Elta,

thank's a lot for your work on the SDL to ignore invalid video modes is very very good and useful.

Do you think it's possible to modify SDL to set screen size automaticly in 320x240 without add code to sourcecode project like the bpp mode ?

The Hexen and Heretic ports aren't abandoned. Elta posted new versions earlier in this thread that have increased performance when run under his his updated rootfs. I've tried both and they work great.

Heretic and Hexen works NOT great, still problem with controls - can't set shifts for strafe left and right
also simultaneous turn and strafe move is impossible (this is IMPORTANT piece of gameplay), in-game controls  options makes no changes in cfg file (look my earlier post )  :-[

I see what you mean. The control issues will probably be fixed in a future version, the ports aren't "abandoned" as such.

Personally, playing FPS games on the Dingoo makes my hand cramp up after just a few minutes, no matter how the controls are configured. :)

Thank you man for answer!
For me, playing FPS game on handhelds is a salvation and last pleasure, and its enough comfortable (maybe i'm too much practice).
also, the BEST controls scheme are in CongoZombie's CZdoom port.

Hi,

as I posted bevore in another thread, I had some troubles with the sound in Heretic and Hexen. So, Chris advised me to try out Elta's ports of the games. Now I did it and the games runs great. Only now the screen is little bit cut off at the bottom. The same cut off I also see in xRick and Nicky Boum. Can anyone fix them? That were awesome. ::)
