Are there news about the porting of Hurrican for the GCW Zero?

As far as I know, Johnnyonflame was working on the porting... obviously the game uses the OpenGL ES hardware acceleration...

i maintain the original port. Everything should be there to support the gcw. I think it just needs to be packaged up.

This game would be a great adding for the GCW Zero... hope in a "smooth frame rate" ! ;)

Nope, there's graphical glitches, slowdowns and the text doesn't scale well (unreadable at 320x240).

I'm also anxiously awaiting this game, it looks sooo cool to me... it would be a great addition to the GCW Zero library... should we organize a fundraiser for the development tweaks for this game?

In other words, the porting is possible, but require many time/optimizations and it's anything but easy!

It runs, its just not an ideal game for the gcw being that the lowest res is 640x480, which is scaled down to 320x240.

Yes, but the sole fact something runs is not enough to qualify for a release candidate :)
Otherwise you have people who will criticize your port for all the issues they face.

Menu needs a total and complete rewrite, and some part of the game's rendering engine could do with some optimizations, all of which I have no time to do.

All I did was debug the game enough to notice a very small oversight on the usage of glViewport. I didn't 'port' it, and it's also not ready either.

I also wont spend the time making it support 320x240 just to support one device with underpowered gpu.
320x240 really needs to die  >:(

No problem, make it 640x480, then we can play it via HDMI  ;D

I can imagine... adjust this game to the QVGA resolution it's a difficult task... many little writing symbols and details!
