amiga port?

Postby cycloid » Sat Oct 04, 2003 10:00 am

anyone else been thinking about it? i've been hunting for a bloody GCC cross compiler setup for ages (i.e. win32 hosted, 68k targetted). i'm too impatient to understand the gerzillion web pages on how to use gcc to build gcc with a target and i have no ideas how the libraries set up works... i COULD attempt to use my 1200 to compile it but that would take bloody ages now wouldnt it!

i'll get around to it one day, for a laugh.

I thought about it, since I had two Amigas during the 7 years before getting a PC. (Got an Amiga 500 in 1989!) I've never been interested enough to actually try setting up a cross compiler, though. And any testing I would do would have to be done with UAE, since my Amiga's power supply is now dead.

There's already an Amiga port of regular ol' Doom, so why shouldn't a port of ZDoom be possible? Except the fancy stuff (like high res) would probably require a PPC to run properly. I don't even own an Amiga, I've just used WinUAE...

No one's questioning whether it's possible. Somebody just needs to take the time to port the ZDoom source (freely available) to Amiga.

/me looks for zdoom-2.0.47i-src.zip but can't find it.

Do they still make Amigas? I only dumped my old 500+ about 6 months ago. At the time, the Amiga seemed to leave the PC in it's dust for certain things - graphics and animation in particular.

i'm just used to Visual Studio... if i could use textpad and a cross compiler i'd go for it but i'm too lazy, probably... i think i have an older version of the source so i'll probably just get used to it first by having a read around...
