Hallo Leute,
was ich mich die ganze Zeit frage ist warum keiner sich an einer Umsetzung von Duke Nukem 3D, Doom und Wolfenstein 3D versucht.
Mir fiel dann ein das möglicherweise wenige wissen, das es zu den games seit langen die Source Codes gibt.
ich hab die mal auf meinen Server geladen.
Für wolfenstein:
Für Duke 3D
Für Doom habe ich im moment grad keine source gefunden aber ich bin sicher das es die gibt.

Wolfenstein müsste für den Virtual Boy absolut kein Problem darstellen.
Duke 3D ist evtl. etwas hart, aber mit etwas tuning müsste Ken Silvermans Build Engine auch auf dem VB laufen.

Beide Games würden auf dem VB super aussehen und es würden viele Interesse am VB bekommen.

Hello people,
I have been wondering for very long, why nobody tries to port Duke Nukem 3D, Doom or Wolfenstein 3D to VB.
Then I thought, that probably not many people know, that source codes for those games have been out for quite some time.
I uploaded those to my server.
For wolfenstein:
For Duke 3D
Unfortunately I did not find sources for Doom right now, but I am sure they are out there.

Wolfenstein should be absolutely no problem for the Virtual Boy.
Duke 3D mighty be a bit hard, but with some tuning Ken Silverman’s Build Engine should run on the VB.

Both games would look great on VB and I am sure a lot of people would become interested in the Virtual Boy.

i got a email from Ken Silverman today about porting the Build engine to Virtual Boy…
here is what he has to say:

> Is it possible to port the Build Engine to the Virtual Boy?

Anything’s possible.

> 1Mbyte DRAM … 512Kbyte P-SRAM

This is not enough memory! You will need to reduce the sizes of many
arrays – especially the sector, wall, and sprite structures.

> 4 color with 32 levels of Intensity

Build uses 256 color mode. With only 4 colors, you’ll probably want to
disable shading altogether and draw all your textures from scratch using a
custom tile editor.

> 20mHz

I remember Build used to run on a 486-33 at around 15-20 frames per second.
With shading disabled, and well-written assembler code, it might be ok.

-Ken S.

Because writing a new engine from scratch would be a better use of time and produce far better end results. As evidenced by the YetiVB project (j/k, Dan! Blow the dust off that sucker and keep goin’! 😉

Plus, once the engine was created, the content from these or any number of other (inexplicably) popular games could be converted (relatively) easily, providing the same net effect. (Which would probably NOT be record numbers of VB fans…)

P.S. I have the Doom source, if you want it 😉

…And I suppose you aren’t even more lazy than us…
…Can’t even bother turning off Caps Lock… 🙁

Actually if i compare myself to you you look like the one who worked yourself to fat

That statement leads me to believe that it isn’t your laziness that prevents you from making your own games, but is in fact your mental capacity is too insufficient to support anything more than filling up the internet with your mindless comebacks.

…I wonder if KR155E can IP ban…

And the award for THE most retarded comment ever goes to….


…….PERSON Congratulations!!!!!!!!!

Runners up:
Helen Keller
Forrest Gump
and the guy from “My left foot”

LOL. I can’t IP ban currently, but it will be possible in PVB3, I already have some candidates ~_~

Even better would just be an A.I.-based retard filter…

lameboy is a chubby-kins he should look for the fat-kins diet and die of heart disease

i like poop

shut up all of you

Lameboy (get a better name) but before that heres a quote that I have for you. “If you can take advantage of someone, do it!” these people are annoying you and taking advantage of you. they could be the smartest people on earth just because they act guffy doesnt mean theyre dumb. And you cant seem to understand that. Fatass

*08-03-05 02:36 – “Person” as he calls himeslf makes this retarded comment:
*08-04-05 16:39 – Lameboy points out the obvious fact that “Person” is a retard.
*08-04-05 12:15 – “Person” awakes from a late sleep after a long night of masturbating to Arthur on PBS and makes way to his mothers only possesion worth more than $5.00 aside from her ass witch happens to be her computer located in her 1 bedroom apartment in witch “Person” lives and checks PVB post despite the fact he does not own a VB. “Person” is 35 years old.
*08-04-05 13:05 – “Person” again makes it clear he is not playing with a full deck.
*08-13-05 21:46 – “Person” makes another stupid statement but under the alias “Supa~Squrriel” in witch squirrel was poorly missplelled, even by ebonix stantards.
*08-13-05 21:47 – “Person” makes another post one minute later deciding to randomly quote his mother in within the post after she replied to Persons “Step-Dad of the day” who asked Persons mother “Can I poop on your chest?”, overhearing all this from a bedroom 6 inches away.
*08-13-05 21:48 – “Person” types to the voices in his head after futilely trying to speak with them for the past 35 years. He accidentally hit the post button.
*08-13-05 21:50 – “Person” tries to pretend he is someone intelligent but with no luck. He has better odds of winning the lottery but his mom keeps taking his dollar he saved for PowerBall and spends it on crack crumbs.
*08-14-05 06:50 – “Person” begins reading this post. It takes him several hours to read the first sentence.
*08-14-05 10:55 – “Person” begins to think of a comeback but he already knows it will be stupid.

Sorry everyone, I just could’nt resist…

…I wonder how many of those previous posts all came from the same IP address?

If you want to waste your time going on about my weight, then go right ahead. I really don’t give a ****.
It just shows you’d rather spend your time dissing someone, instead of actually doing something constructive….

You can do a constructive thing but in a negative manner.

Oh and BTW look up the definition on “Retarted” before you use it in a way that it isnt used for. 😉
