PS3 DOOM ODamex?
« on: January 23, 2011, 15:25:18 »
Can you guys get a Odamex for PS3 Doom

People are already playing the game on the ps3 but it would be a 100X better if it had multiplayer or possibly split screen support too thats just wishful thinking but if Odamex could come to the PS3 i know you guys are the ones to do it..

Hi!

I just read through the link you posted and, from what I can tell, the ps3 builds there are based on Chocolate Doom. Like Odamex, Chocolate Doom uses SDL and is therefor very portable. Unfortunately for you, I don't believe anybody on our development team has a PS3. However, maybe you can convince the developer of the current PS3 track to switch his development track to Odamex.

Odamex features much of the same compatibility as Chocolate Doom but also comes with the obvious multiplayer features as well as some other advanced features (Boom and limited zdoom 1.22 support for custom wads). The engine already features a robust joypad setup.

Odamex has already been ported to the XBox by our own team and there is currently a Wii port in development as well. We'd be very interested to see work on a PS3 port begin but cannot devote any internal resources to it at this time.

Technically this can be accomplished by installing Linux on the PS3. Odamex does support the PowerPC CPU architecture, so it should compile so long as you install SDL.

I don't think Hyper_Eye has a PS3 to port Odamex to. However if a developer wants to do it they are welcome to and can submit a patch. It should be pretty simple seeing ask Odamex is already ported to a console with fully functional controller binding and is so portable with SDL.

 You can do what some of us used to do back in the Dreamcast days and just find someone who you trust and who would be willing to work on the port if you buy and pay to ship the needed hardware to them.

 In my experience, money talks. I can't tell you how many people I've convinced to port things because I offered to buy the hardware for them. :)
