First of all thanks for your work on cloning this legendary game! I hope
this mailing list is still somehow active
I have recently started an initiative to petition against Sony asking for
them to allow people to build homebrew apps for the PS3. I've ported a set
of puzzle games to the PS3 and launched the website
http://humblehomebrew.com about a week ago. I want to push forward the ps3
homebrew scene with more quality games and my next target was free heroes 2.
I have already ported it (was quite easy to be honest) and you can see a
video here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fhhhkEtqXo
Now I have three things to say...
first, you probably noticed the pink background on the popup messages.. I'm
guessing that the PSL1GHT (unofficial SDK) of SDL has a bug, but I'm not
sure where to look as I have never worked with graphics libraries before (I
usually write low level libraries), so if you have any idea, or a tip as
where to start looking, that would be helpful.
Secondly, How would you feel about fheroes2 being bundled in the
HumbleHomebrewCollection and who should I be in contact with in regards to
receiving any donations sent to the project?
Third, what do you know about the distribution of the .AGG file? I've seen
in many places that it never gets distributed with fheroes2, but gets
downloaded from the h2demo. However, I've seen someone claim that the
h2demo.zip can be redistributed as long as it's not for commercial purposes,
also it's being hosted on sourceforge (
http://sourceforge.net/projects/libsdl-android/files/FreeHeroes2/ ) so do
you think it's ok to bundle it with the application? i suppose bundle the
whole zip itself instead of just some of the files (agg) in it would be ok.
I'd like to know what are your thoughts on that, as I suppose you probably
investigated such a thing.
