Best non-opengl platform games for Raspberry PI ?


Hello,

there aren't much games under Linux that aren't on Opengl. Emulators, ok, but really full opensource?

Holotz castle is a good one that won't take too much resource on your pi.

Do you know other plaform games?

The game DOOM 2 is really great and the fullscreen works fairly well.
The issue with large screen is solved with raspbian, and it allows to have a real fullscreen on a big TV.

Code:
pi       11251  0.0  0.0   1912   408 pts/5    S+   14:20   0:00 sh -c    cd ; cd games ; cd prboom ;   prboom -iwad doom2.wad -nomonsters 
pi       11252 74.5  5.1  82400 49184 pts/5    Rl+  14:20  10:22 prboom -iwad doom2.wad -nomonsters
You need >= 2. computers:
// this will start a server with a starting level 11, with 2 players (and with a bit of monsters )
Code:
PC#1 (10.0.0.99): prboom-game-server -l 11 

PI B III Model #2:    cd ; cd games ; cd prboom ;   prboom -iwad doom2.wad -net 10.0.0.99
PI B III Model #3:    cd ; cd games ; cd prboom ;   prboom -iwad doom2.wad -net 10.0.0.99
It works well in fullscreen on TV on a raspberry PI-III!!
You can co-op with 2,3,4.... any number of players that you may desire.

Have Fun using VGA graphics!! Doom2 is great!!

The levels 7 and 8 in cooperation, 2 players, is completely amazing. The sound is amazing.


prboom-game-server -l 7 -N 2

Would you know an Engine that DOES NOT run on Opengl for QUAKE 1 ? http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Quake-HOWTO-3.html


2.1 Minimum Requirements

You will need, as a bare minimum, the following:

A Pentium 90 or better (133 recommended) computer
16 MB RAM (24 recommended)
The Quake CD-ROM or the shareware version (quake106.zip)
Linux kernel version 2.0.24 or later
libc 5.2.18 or later
One of the following:
X11R5 or later (for xquake)
SVGAlib 1.2.0 or later (for squake and glquake)
30-80 megabytes free disk space (depends on how you install)
Access to the root account of the machine you're installing on
Optional:

A supported soundcard
A 3Dfx VooDoo Graphics or VooDoo2 3D graphics accelerator card.
Mesa 2.6 or later (for glquake)
2.2 Installing Quake


I think that it shall be another thread since it is another topic.
