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.

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
