Porting games from elsewhere...
« on: March 04, 2010, 02:59:22 pm »
How is this done? there's a few games that I'd love to have as a stand alone rather than trying to run through an emulator, Like all the dizzy games from the amiga and all the lemmings games... Wrath of the Demon is one of my fav's too... would like to take out  the protection codes, unlike the version of Another World that was in the local pack that I had used...

I'm new to coding in general but kind of unerstand the arguments used in stuff... know some html and basic!!

or is someone could port some of these games?? I have roms and stuff or do i need originals?

Methinks you would need the source code!

source code, programming experience, knowledge of compiling for linux (damn easy compared to compiling anything more than a basic program on windows), and general knowledge of the system

running linux on your pc helps a lot aswell, it's possible to compile things in windows for dingux, but much much easier in linux

if you really want to get into it, and are willing to put time into learning then hop onto irc and see if anyone's feeling nice  :D (#dingoonity on freenode)
