Fenix for PS2 ? Could it be ported
Fenix for PS2 ? Could it be ported –
The Gamepark 32 and Dreamcast scenes have lately enjoyed a mass of older DOS style games by way of an interpreter called Fenix, would a PS2 port be a possibility (obviously if anyones interested etc, this isnt a request)
DCEmu uk have a section of Fenix games here http://www.dcemu.co.uk/fenix.shtml and so do GP32Extreme http://www.gp32x.com
The interpreter makes it very easy to adapt games for any console once they are released, if a release happens on GP32 all it takes to port it across is the changing of some words in an xml file.
The source code and some more games to test can be found here --> http://www.gp32spain.com/public_ftp/fenix/
And yes the source is open to the public.
A PS2 port of this would majorly boost the amount of homebrew for the PS2.
What PS2 is missing?
I agree. A port of Fenix to PS2 would be an excellent idea. The main homepage for Fenix is at http://fenix.divsite.net/index.php?opcion=1&lang=en . To anyone who doesn't know, Fenix is a scripting language which allows to easily program games. The scripting software to create Fenix games is at http://fenix.divsite.net/download.php?lang=en , versions are avaliable for Windows, Linux, Beos, Power PC, Mac-OS X (10.2 or better) , sample games & extra files are also avaliable on the page at http://fenix.divsite.net/download.php?lang=en .
The current version of Fenix which is Fenix 0.84b is compatiable with Div Games Studio. You can download the source code to games written in Div Games Studio & they are able to compile in Fenix. You can find games/apps/tutorials written in Div Games Studio located at http://www.div-arena.com/ .
It would be great if one of the PS2 Devers would port Fenix to PS2, this would open the doors to more games since Fenix is becoming a popular game programming software & the best thing is that Fenix is open-source.
