Do you think this would be a possibility based on the differences of the PSP Quake and Vita Quake? I'd be willing to learn the internals if there was a possibility (I know the capabilities are there, but what would the difficulty look like? Would I be wasting my time?).
What IDE are you using, what compiler? FrikQCC?
I know mods are supported, would I be better off porting what I want in mod format instead of rewriting the demo for NZP?
- PSPQuake uses hw rendering with sceGu, vitaQuake uses sw rendering with vita2d for hw acceleration.
- NZP uses a modified version of Quake Engine, this will imply the fact that several drawing functions won't exist in sw rendering and you'll have to manually rewrite them in order to work with vitaQuake source.
- I don't use any IDE, they're too slow for me. I'm fine with Notepad++. As for compiler you don't have so much choices, you can use arm-vita-eabi-gcc / g++ only.
- NZP is not a mod, so no, you can't port it as a mod. NZP is a total conversion that introduces new stuffs in the main source of the engine. (Think at it as HexenII, the concept is the same).
I see. I won't let this deter me, but maybe I'll look at something that isn't as... Complicated. I'm not as smart as you guys are, takes me a lot longer to pick up on this. Lol. Thanks for answering Rin.
