Postal Now Open Source, Devs Asking for Dreamcast Port

Post#1 » Wed Dec 28, 2016 2:48 pm

The source code for the original Postal has been released and the original devs are requesting that someone port it to the Dreamcast! Well I guess technically they said "Dremcast" but I'm fairly certain that's a typo. :lol: Some talented developer get on this and add online multiplayer while you're at it! ;)

Has anything come of this porting to the Dreamcast?
If you want it, come and take it from me. If you think you can, you still dont know me.

I said it, i meant it, and i will always have the right to defend it.

Last time i tried (it was in Early 2017), i was not even able to get the game to work properly on Linux.
The good thing is that it does not use hardware acceleration, which makes things a bit easier.
The game uses SDL 2.0 but that can be switched to SDL 1.2 with some efforts.

However, the code is a huge mess, especially the code that handles directories and filepaths.
It hates relative paths and i need that for the DC. Usually, it's not an issue except this one...
