kayvenm has released a new version of his port of the pc game Descent.
New things :
Fixed touch screen sensitivity, now adjustable in the config menu.
Saving and loading a game is now possible. Press start in-game to access the option menu.
Fixed up the error handling to not throw an exception so it is possible to see the error message. Reactivated the exception handler.
Better handling of texture uploading to VRAM, should could less slow downs.
Better error message with the 'not enough strings'.
There's more that escapes me at the moment.
About music : Descent's music is in MIDI format, so to play it on the ds, one needs a software synthesizer (like fluidsynth) and some soundfonts. So it is unlikely that I can find enough cpu time/memory to do this but I'm looking into it none the less.
About shareware data files : They simply won't work. There are too many differences between the shareware and registered 1.4 version. Don't even bother trying.
