fheroes2 release #1
« on: June 01, 2010, 11:25:46 pm »
A quick&dirty port of FHeroes2 - a free implementation of Heroes of Might and Magic II engine using SDL.
The game is playable, but has a couple of glitches and needs some improvements.



Download: http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/dingoo.cgi?0,0,0,0,26,353 (source included)

How to make it run:
Copy the original data/*.agg into the data directory.
Copy the maps files (*.mp2) into the maps directory.

Game was tested with elta's rootfs. Might not run on others.

Controls:
Global:
* D-PAD  - move cursor
* A - cursor click

Menu:
* SELECT - go back/quit game
* START - accept

In-game:
* B - cast a spell
* X - next hero
* Y - hero/town dialog
* L - mini-map
* R - hero/town selection
* SELECT - game menu
* START - end turn

Changelog:
Release #1 01/06/2010
* initial release based on SVN r1898

To-do:
* fix the resolution of the in-game screen
* improve mouse emulation
* check if it uses the correct colordepth and fix it

Edit:
Here's an improved config file that should make the game run faster: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=vbChWu0m (thanks go to Ayla).
It is recommended to use it instead of the default one, as it makes the battle screen fullspeed.

Hey. This works very well! Only thing I'd ask for is a quicker mouse :P Nice job!

It works very well, thanks. I made a short gameplay video of it (it will be HD in a few minutes):

A very nice video, thanks.
BTW, you can accept dialogs with START, and when you're in the world map mode, START ends a turn, so no need to click with cursor for that actions :)

it's good, but the cursor movement needs improving a tad, for a start, diagonals, and start moving at full speed (the fact it goes slow themn accelerates makes scrolling around the map terrible)

but no rush etc  ;D

As someone who spent months with Heroes 3 and 4, I?m very happy to play the second part (never played yet) on the go.
Thank you zear, you rock!  ;D

Played a bit now and it runs and plays pretty darn good :) Good old Heroes 2 on the Dingoo! But it tends to gt very sluggish after a while, quitting and reloading the game gets it back to normal speed. Memory issue? The transfer units and equipment between heroes (the red arrows icon) doesnt seem to work. Also how do you check the approximate number of enemy monsters?

Go to the settings (in the main menu) and enable the "pocketpc: low memory" option. The memory issues should be gone.
