How to compile ScummVM with latest MinGW32CE and SDL
Written by Ismail Khatib  
Sunday, 05 July 2009
So, obviously you came here to give your CPU(s) and HDD(s) something to do for the next few hours (and don't forget all the gigabytes for all the sources) :)


In the following I assume you have created a directory in your homedir where all of the sources will be located. If not, do the following:
mkdir ~/wmports && cd ~/wmports
Additionally, you should download some scripts and put them into your path to make "configure" and "make" easier with the MinGW32CE toolchain.
mkdir scripts && cd scripts
wget http://pocketinsanity.org/patches/scripts/cross-configure-mingw32ce.sh
wget http://pocketinsanity.org/patches/scripts/cross-make-mingw32ce.sh
chmod +x *.sh && export PATH=$PATH:~/wmports/scripts
The parts with light-blue background have to be executed as your normal user, where the parts with light-red background have to be executed as root (invoked with "su", NOT "su -" to prevent switching to the root homedir and environment)

Please note:
  • For compiling under Cygwin, you NEED to omit all lines with "su" or "exit"
  • This may have to be "sudo bash" in some OSes or distros which do not allow root login by default (Mac OSX or Ubuntu for example).

OpenJazz ported to PocketPC
Written by Ismail Khatib  
Sunday, 14 May 2006
I've managed to port OpenJazz, a "free, open-source version of the classic Jazz Jackrabbit™ game"
from Alister Thomson to the PocketPC Platform.
This is just a 1:1 port, I've only merged S3M sound code from the GP2X port.

This is especially dedicated to my girlfriend, who loves to play the
original Jazz Jackrabbit on my old Pentium 90.

You can find more details and screenshots about this port here.
New version of PocketUAE with configurable buttons
Written by Ismail Khatib  
Saturday, 21 January 2006
May I introduce the long awaited updated version of PocketUAE?

Changes in new release (20060121):
  • Added configurable buttons support
    (also in PocketUAE Launcher)
  • Added option to switch between GAPI and DIB video driver
  • Re-added windowed mode for Handheld PCs
    (only usable with DIB video driver)
  • Added option to rotate screen left or right
    (for lefthanded people)
  • Added option to toggle debugoutput
    (writes to stdout.txt and stderr.txt, useful
    to track down start-up problems)
  • Fixed a bug in the sound output driver
    (after fixing this bug PocketUAE runs much
    faster here and without sound problems for most games;
    sometimes even with a frameskip of 2 & CPU/Chip ratio of 7!
    Try to select to smallest 'Max. Sound Buffer' value [2048] and
    a frequency of 11,025 Hz; if you get hickups in the sound enlarge
    your buffer a bit and try again.)

Known problems:
  • On-screen keyboard is not available when running
    under the DIB video driver
  • Keyboard drawing problem when using lefthanded mode
    and GAPI video driver (keyboard is on the top of the screen
    and rotated)

Download the new version here.

PocketUAE with on-screen keyboard
Written by Ismail Khatib  
Monday, 26 September 2005
We're still alive!
A new version has just been released. It now has on-screen keyboard support for 240x320 devices (thanks to n0p, I recycled some of his keyboard code from DosBox) with nice selfmade graphics (see the screenshots page); I also added a nice icon to the executable. This version should also run a bit faster on XScale-devices due to a specially XScale optimized build of SDL and of course it runs on WM2003SE.
Unfortunaletely, this version does not support the windowed mode (we will put this back in!) and according to Poopi it won't run in QVGA mode on 480x640 devices (this will be put back in, too). However, it runs in native mode on these hires-devices but the on-screen keyboard is not usable here (garbled screen, this will also be fixed).
The new version of PocketUAE (also includes the latest version of Munk's very nice PocketUAE Launcher) is available for download on the PocketUAE page.
Please post your comments to the forum!
PocketUAE News

For the people who don't check the forums regularly, here are some nice news:
Poopi has joined the team. He also made (even more important) a patch so that PocketUAE now runs on WM2003 SE and PPC2002 (at least on iPAQ 3850).
Additionally Munk has made a program called PocketUAE Launcher which makes it alot easier to configure and run PocketUAE.
The new version of PocketUAE (Poopi's version) with Munk's PocketUAE Launcher is available for download on the PocketUAE page.
Have fun!
