Any of you have motivation back?
I really believe the project might get back on rails if to act quickly. I believe you heard of Raspberry Pi (http://www.raspberrypi.org
). ETR could be the first proper game to run on it. Moreover, considering the specs of the device and ETR requirements it looks like ETR would greatly utilise all RPi resources. What I mean by this is that there is not much scope to develop anything more 'modern' and 'playable' as ETR for the device having in mind its resources.
I also believe that it should not take much effort at all to add EGL support (RPI supports EGL but not GL) knowing that RPi runs DirectFB and SDL perfectly fine.
If this would happen (ETR runs on RPi in near future) the project could get a lot of attention from the RPi community which is aimed at young and eager developers!
Personally I would love to get my hands dirty and modify the code... just the build system seems to be outdated what pushes me off..
Let me know your thoughts,
